*The latest episode of MTV’s “Catfish: The TV Show” featured a woman Keyonnah who believed she was in an online relationship with BET 106 & Park host Shad Moss, a.k.a. Bow Wow.
Although Keyonnah had her doubts that it was really Bow Wow, her mind was put at ease when the imposter sent her $10,000 that was she able use towards her family’s bills. Po thang. She had no idea she was being catfished.
Even though it would’ve been real easy to prove, the shows producers Nev Schulman and Max Joseph claimed to be unaware that the impersonator was not really Bow Wow and proceeded to get on a plane to Atlanta to meet “Bow Wow.”
OK, let’s cut to the chase. If you saw the show you know it doesn’t end well. That’s because when Keyonnah meets the person who’s been pretending to be Bow Wow, she finds out that it’s a female. In fact, it’s a lesbian rapper named “Dee Pimpin.” That’s when things got even more interesting. Dee Pimpin assumed that her game was so tight that Keyonnah would simply overlook the fact that she had been played like a video game and would go along with Dee’s program.
We’ll, at this point Keyonnah is straight done. No Bow Wow, but a lesbian with a lambskin dildo that she was gonna use to turn Keyonnah out. Lord have mercy! Now, knowing that this poor young woman suffered that kind of indignity, you would think that Bow Wow’s response would have a bit more compassion to it.
Nope, in the video response that BET issued, a self-centered Bow Wow comes off showing no concern for the young lady who was duped all because she was so infatuated with him.
“The new thing is this “catfish” situation. Let’s talk about how somebody is actually impersonating me. Now, first of all that’s a hard thing to do. Just look at me, you can’t impersonate this. These eyes, these ain’t contacts. You can’t buy these and put these in your eyes to think that you’re Bow Wow. These tattoos on my body, these is permanent. You can’t draw these on. It’s only one. It can only be one, not two but one. And that’s me. So how do I feel about being “Catfished?” Well, I feel honored. It’s dope and it’s flattering when someone wants to be you. And not only do they want to be you. In their mind, they are you. That’s crazy. But I like it. It’s free promo for myself, for BET, for ’106 & Park’.”
Afterwards Boweezy invited both Keyonnah and Dee Pimpin to meet him on his show “106 & Park.”
“But we gon’ do it on my time though, on our network though and on our show. I mean ya’ll did take all our pictures from our show and used them. You want to holla at Bow Weezy, come to 106. “Catfish,” it is what it is.”
