Are you ready to get wild?!?!
I know I am!
And today we’re gonna specifically get wild about families…and you know there’s never any shortage of drama or craziness when it comes to every single family out there.
Ready for some crazy stories?
Folks on Buzzfeed shared their wildest family secrets.
Let’s get wild!
1. S**t storm.
“During Christmas four years ago, I came home to a s**t storm, as one of my cousins had started dropping truth bombs.
We learned that my oldest sister does not share the same biological father as myself and our third sister.
We were the only three people who didn’t know. For over 35 years, everyone kept quiet.”
2. Uh oh…
“My great-uncle had a whole other family in Scotland (he’s Northern Irish) and one day he just never came home from work.
Turns out he had been saving up, moved to Scotland, married his mistress, and went to live with her and their two children.
This was never discussed, and my sisters and I only found out a few months ago.”
“I learned that my grandfather cheated on my grandma with her first cousin, who she let stay with them for a summer, while my grandma was pregnant with my mom.
They are still married, but there’s a huge rift in their relationship.
It happened almost 60 years ago, but my grandma still hasn’t gotten over that hurt.”
4. It gets worse…
“When I was in college, I found out that my great-uncle’s father had a secret second family. No one knew he had a second wife and two other children until after he d**d. That’s bad enough, but it gets worse.
In order to make it easier to keep his families straight, he gave both sets of kids the same names. So, my great-uncle Tom and his sister Sue have a half-brother and half-sister also named Tom and Sue!”
5. Chaos ensued.
“My great-grandma had at least two extramarital affairs — one with the man who lived next door, and one with her female cousin.
Her kids found out years after her d**th from an extended family member who mentioned it in a very casual, ‘everyone knows this’ type of way.
Everyone did not know. Chaos ensued.”
“My aunt snuck around and dated her daughter’s ex for YEARS.
That’s pretty bad.
7. True crime.
“I found out that my grandfather was in prison for money laundering for mobs, including the Yakuza, and he went on the run.
My mom told me that while he was on the run, she was regularly tailed by both the FBI and mobsters in her car to see if she would lead them to him. Also, he was in jail with Charles Manson and they did a prisoner therapy group together.
Apparently, Grandpa was close with ‘Charlie.’ This was all before I was born.”
8. This is pretty bad.
“My sisters and I are named after our dad’s former girlfriends. My mom still doesn’t know.
According to my aunt, each of our middle names is the same as a girl my dad dated before our mom.”
9. Love child.
“My cousin found out that my grandpa has a hidden love child from when he was stationed in Germany in the 1960s.
A lady reached out to my cousin and said, ‘I think you know my dad.’ They made the connection and met in person, and she’s actually really nice.
My dad and his sisters kept it a secret from my grandma, who d**d last year. Grandma would have completely lost her s**t if she found out.”
“I found out recently that part of my grandma’s family helped hide Bonnie and Clyde.
11. Back off!
“My grandfather’s mother did not like him marrying my grandmother, so she tried to get the local mafia to ‘get rid of her.’
But, as it turns out, the local mafia loved my grandmother’s family, so they told my grandfather’s mother to back the f**k off!”
Now it’s your turn to shame your family!
Give us some good dirt in the comments.
Thanks in advance!
