Bow Wow Reacts To Catfish Episode, Proves He’s Still 14

October 9, 2013  |  

Source: YouTube

If you’re a fan of MTV’s hit show, “Catfish,” then you know that last night’s episode was a doozy. The short of it is that a woman, Keyonnah, believed she was in an online relationship with rapper Bow Wow. Now, before we start wondering about homegirl’s intelligence level, there were a few signs that could lead a naive and desperate person to believe that Bow Wow really was talking to her. For instance, “Bow Wow” messaged her after she left a note on his Facebook fan page and throughout the course of their relationship sent her $10k. Perhaps if Keyonnah followed the news, she would have known that Bow Wow could barely afford to make his child support payments. So there was no way he should have been sending a random fan, a stranger $10k.

So by the end of the episode, Keyonnah meets the person who’s been masquerading as Bow Wow. And lo and behold it’s a woman, a lesbian, named “Dee Pimpin.” Crazy, right? (If you haven’t seen the episode, you MUST watch.) The craziest thing about the meeting was that Dee believed she and Keyonnah would still have a chance. I mean, sure she wasn’t a man and had lied to her but she had a really life-like, lambskin dildo that she was gon’ use to turn Keyonnah out. LOL you can not make this stuff up.

Needless to say, Keyonnah is devastated. Not only did Dee lie about the nature of their relationship, she had her male cousin, Larry speak to her on the phone so she could be listening to a male voice. She was embarrassed, betrayed and disgusted by the whole situation. And even though we, the viewing audience, all knew that Bow Wow was not going to be on the other side of the door, I still felt for her. I mean dude was her childhood crush, c’mon.

So after the episode airs, Bow Wow and BET, in a move to rightly capitalize off of the episode release a video reaction to the episode centered all around him. I’m including the video, but let me just pull out a few highlights.

“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’.”

Then he invites Keyonnah and Dee Pimpin to come to “106 & Park” and meet him and discuss the whole thing.

“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.”

*Exasperated sigh.*

I’m sorry, was I the only one expecting a little compassion from Bow Wow instead of him taking this comical, yet sad situation to further promote himself? Did he not realize that he was not the one being catfished? Where was the message to the girl who actually believed she was meeting him, who had been a fan of his since childhood? Did he have any sympathy for her? Did he feel sorry that someone would use his image and images of his daughter to take advantage of another person? I guess not. Instead, he spent far too many seconds talking about his eyes and tattoos.

Baby, bye!

I’m not gonna lie, I’ve seen Bow Wow up close and homeboy, though severely short (like 5’2), is very easy on the eyes. But listening to this video nearly turns my stomach. He sounds like he never matured past the days when girls were throwing their training bras on stage during those Scream tours. And I get it, you got a lot of play back in the day; and maybe still to this day, but where is the humility? You need it.

And on another note, can we talk about this grown man’s lack of knowledge about the company he actually works for? He seems to have taken issue with the fact that MTV used images from “106 & Park.” That’s right, they did. But Bow, I need you to do some research. Both MTV and BET are owned by Viacom. They didn’t steal anything. They just moved those images over from one server to the next. Stop it.

Bow Wow’s only saving grace is that perhaps he didn’t see the full episode and therefore couldn’t comprehend the devastation and embarrassment Keyonnah felt when she realized her online love was not the man she envisioned, she wasn’t even a man. Perhaps after he’s seen the episode, if he hasn’t seen it, he’ll have something more to actually say to her and not continue talking about himself.

    Looks like someone left kindergarten a little too early… Here’s to hoping he gets some new braincells sometime soon!

  • yarifgt

    I call bullshit… and the reason for that is because of I think this was just a case of an obsessed fan trying to me bow wow. People watch the show and they know the individual that is falsely portrayed makes a personal appearance via Skype. They probably reached out to Bow wow and probably saw right through the fictious story line and thought he would flip it to his benefit. Cmon how you get 10k and you apartment looks vacant.

  • I’m mad why are people mad at bow wow for being bow wow? I mean nobody should be coming for him he did nothing wrong. Y’all mad at him because he has high self esteem about himself? He getting a steady paycheck he still make more then most regular people so…what’s the issue? What is he supposed to do send the girl a cd or his greatest hits because she fell for someone who lied on themselves? That’s not bow wow’s problem. I don’t get all the people coming for his neck Kanye feels the same way about himself so why can’t bow wow have high self esteem? Like you wasn’t jamming to his songs from back in the day. People need to stop it with the foolishness and let this man live and do his thing smh. He didn’t have nothing to do with the catfishing so why should he even feel any kind of way about it?

    • IAJS

      Thank you! people act like bow wow ran over their puppy.

  • Coco Michele

    I watched the episode and I’m sorry but I don’t feel sorry for her. She knew she wasn’t talking to Bow Wow. On a side note, Bow Wow is like 5’8″…I think he just appears so much shorter when standing beside others.

  • Ashley Bella Fonte

    saw him.. he wasnt all that..
    funny thing is when we came into my store one time I was like “look at that lil boy looking like bow wow”



  • mebabez

    She should of known it wasn’t him..Bow Wow ain’t checking for no woman..he wants him a man!

  • EL

    He was trying to be (and obviously thought he was being) funny and make light of someone else’s pain. Although I still think anyone on that damn show (Catfish) is a victim of their own stupidity, or foolishness if I’m trying to be polite, it is still sad to see someone being emotionally exploited and hurt like that. Bow Wow is still just Lil Bow Wow, an immature little boy who thinks too much of female attention and himself. And I mimic your boy “bye!”

    But on a different note, the comment about his statements on BET and MTV, there’s no way he doesn’t know they’re both owned by Viacom, but they still are separate networks and operate separately. While the way he stated it was immature (which obviously was to fit in with the rest of his video), he never said that they “stole” anything and his comment just seemed to be stating that he wanted to bring the benefit to his own show on its own network, which was what the whole video was about- BET/106 & Park capitalizing on the situation.

  • E Lynne Anderson

    Keyonnah was naïve as hell but Bow Wow could have expressed some sympathy for her situation given that she was a life-long fan. A better man would have given her a shout out or something just to make her feel better. Even though I think he was trying to use some humor in the video, it just came off tacky. Shad, you used to be a rapper- now you introduce them on tv. Boy, please get over yourself…

  • Tonyoardee

    ALOT of celebrities prowl on the internet and social networks to “hook up” with their “fans”, my ex’s friend had slept with Pooch “Derwin Davis” Hall after gettin the number thru tweets

    • TT

      funny you say that i definitely ran into him the other day and had a whole conversation with him

  • Tonyoardee

    Its quite apparent the Napoleon complex has gotten even worse smh

  • Bren

    Well written and I definitely agree. SMH at Bow Wow or whatever he calls himself.

  • Ms B

    I dont see what the big deal is lol he was joking CLEARLY at the beginning about the eyes and tattoos thing you can tell by the expressions he was making and of course he is conceited he STILL has ridiculous amounts of female fans who fill his head with all kinds of confidence nothing wrong with that let him be let him get his time to shine and stop hating on him smh let him live! why should he be sympathetic to this girl? there is no way in the world she should have actually believed it was him

  • He’s an a**wipe! Can i just call it like I see it for once?
    His low rent a** is just barely scraping by… ugh (pardon me while i vomit).

  • Isi92

    What an annoying little gnome.

    • Jacara Fatin

      You hit the nail right on the head. Back in the day when I was like 14 and we were the same height, I used to love this man’s dirty drawls. Ugh, what was I thinking?? He’s so arrogant. I grew but he sure didn’t.

  • Pazazz

    I knew it was fake when Dee had a 919 area code for her phone but wanted to meet in Atl…why would she have a number linked to North Carolina when she is in Atlant

    • Jj222

      Plus Cameron, NC where the victim girl was from also has the area code 919…seems fishy to me.

  • Keland

    Why would you expect something of someone who you don’t even know?

  • Candeice Llovely


  • Tessa

    I can’t stand him. I don’t see anything cute about bow wow anyway.

  • Trisha_B

    I believe this was filmed before the show aired…but he should feel compassion for a girl that is clearly delusional!? Do you know how many girls were in love w/ that boy growing up? All little girls, including me, thought they were gonna marry him. So this girl was no special case. This girl made a fool of herself. No way she went into this thinking Bow Wow was really gonna come from behind the door. I don’t feel sorry for her, & i see why Bow Wow doesn’t either. She’s dumb lol. The voice on the phone & the voice of bow wow was completely different, that should have been the clear hint. This episode was fake anyway. How convenient to not have any messages from fb b/c the account was deleted? How you get $10k but still have an ’03 flip phone, & got your tv sitting on preschool chairs? seriously? This girl & Dee Pimpin just wanted some tv time. & it worked.

    • yeppers

      The show is HORRIBLY staged…I dont believe that part about 10k either…that sounds like a way to juice it up. what the hell kinda relationship would u have going on OVER THE PHONE AND INTERNET…that i feel close enough to send you 10k??? really….and this “rapper” is a nobody, so unless she has rich parents/uncle, she dont have 10k to send NOBODY. That was lie #1. And these folks gon LEARN that these fan pages can be made by any pschyco out there and stop giving personal information to strangers on the internet. I dont care if a BLUE CHECK ON TWITTER is talking to me. I am going to still excercise caution and not be giving you no adresses or where i stay.
      #2.. This girl is young…any grown person knows that most celeb MEN especially bow wow are only enticed by strippers and profile pics of behinds and body parts. If you NAKED on your profile pic then you might actually get a real response from these celeb men lurking the net for stupid prostitutes. Most of these guys have significant others anyway WHERE THEY STAY and are looking for an easy 1 night on the internet..NONE OF THEM NEED TO TROLL THE INTERNET FOR AN ACTUAL GF…get that straight now. I know stuff like this will NEVER END there will always be fake pages and children believing it to be their fave artist…but its not safe and thats what scares me when people start personally contacting someones child like this.

  • bluekissess

    He stupid.

  • Gabie Aldrich

    What a Jit!

  • JMO

    I saw the episode last, I couldn’t stop laughing and peed in my pants, at the same time I felt a LITTLE TEENSY WEENSY BIT sorry for the girl, how could you NOT know that Bow Wow was fake when you got $10K from and we know damn well the real Bow Wow is broke. Also I know 14 year olds who have better sense and intelligence than Bow Wow, he’s just a complete d0uchhead!

    • Trisha_B

      Bow Wow is not broke. People can believe the blog rumors. But the man is good. He may not be making money like he was when he was Lil Bow Wow. But 106 not paying him change. Funny how people always throw peoples financial issues when trying to break them down lol

  • Live_in_LDN

    To be fair on Keyannah, A LOT of ‘celebrities’ prowl on the internet for women; albeit for a long term relationship or for one night. I know in the UK, the tabloids have exposed a lot of TV stars who sent indecent pictures of themselves to random women on twitter. A lot of rappers in the US also creep on random ‘models’ instragrams. I’ve seen them commenting trying to flirt.

  • word

    hahahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaahahhahahahahahahaahah!!!!!!!!! Bow and 106 are grabbing at straws…nothing funnier than thirst!!! bit don’t feel bad kenya you got10K out of it…winning!!!!!

  • JustDes

    Well I’m not going to lie anyone who are true bow wow fans as this girl claims to be should know this man doesn’t have 10 grand to be throwing around, its a sad thing she went through

  • Bri

    Yes, I expected a little more compassion from him. I think it was foolish of her to believe it was Bow Wow, but considering she was a huge fan of his he could have at least showed some sympathy and probably do something nice for her.

    • Ms B

      inviting her to actually meet him is not nice? lol

      • enlightenment

        I get a feeling he’ll just invite Keyonnah to clown her on 106 & Park…

      • binarystarr

        Not the way he communicated it..”“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.” This was plain rude and insensitive.

  • Erick L. Jackson

    maybe Im crazy but, He didnt seem juvenile to me… hes an entertainer. How can he be entertaining if he acts/talks like everyday people…???

    • bowwowisDEEPIMPIN

      Bow wow may have fame but he is a everyday person,, He is not parting any SEAS…lol

      • BowwowisDEEPIMPIN

        Its not really entertaining if he is being a lil prick..

      • binarystarr

        LMAO!!!!!!! at “he is not parting any seas….”

    • Just_Us

      Great point, however, I believe viewers would have been more impressed to see a more compassionate side to the entertainer. We LOVE to see celebrities be human especially in situations like this. Since the publicity was more of a concern of Bow’s, he could’ve easily gained a lot of positive “publicity” by paying Keyonnah a visit, giving a shout out to her being a fan, or inviting her to the show to tell her story. Where the hell was his PR team when he took the time out to do this video????!!! Come on now

  • Rebecca Luttrell

    Wow… LOL!

  • Takeisha Hayes

    Boy please don’t nobody pay any attention to you anymore so please keep the conceit to a minimum! Secondly, he so smart til he stupid cause Keyonnah was Catfished not him he was just impersonated! He was trying to be so smart and smug but looked stupid. Smh!

  • Bostonchick617

    Oh and Bow does sound like a self-centered, overly confident jerk. Ok, so you have a nice eye color. Big whoop. You’re still short as hell with a gigantic dome and facial skin in need of some Proactiv. Have a slice of humble pie and shut up Shad. I can’t believe I used to be so obsessed with him as a kid. He ain’t even cute no more IMO.

  • ToyaSharee

    Bow Wow is a damn mess. First, off Dee Pimpin said she used Bow Wow because all of the ladies love him, not because she was a fan or thought his flow was crazy or his hosting skills on a washed up video show were impeccable. Dee Pimpin could’ve chosen Drake, Bruno Mars, Tyga or anyone else and walked away with the same result. I think Bow Wow was convenient because she stayed in Georgia. I see why Bow Wow is exactly where he is with his attitude.

    This show was a mess and it was hard to feel bad for Keyonnah. I’m clearly in the wrong hustle. I still can’t believe people are catfishing and reeling in 10K (although it wasn’t clear to me where exactly this 10K went seeing as though she was still living with her momma/aunt actually I wasn’t clear who she lived with I wasn’t paying attention and her weave was obviously busted. But I love this show. Nev and Max are the funniest.

    • bluekissess

      If that’s the new hustle where do I sign up?

    • Yeppers

      Yessss Max and Nev!!! them are 2 shade queens ALL DAY!!! ..

  • MuscleMansWoman

    There is nothing attractive about this little boy. You can look handsome (if you believe that), but your attitude and grammar is what makes you look uglier than that chick who portrayed you…and believe me she (even as a dude) is ugly as H3LL!!! Bow Wow, get over yourself…you are on a struggle network pushing ghetto mentalities to viewers who are not educated enough to do something more constructive with their time.

  • Beffa

    this poor child needs a hug, a role model and an old school black mother to set him straight…bless his little heart

  • enlightenment

    Not 14…but definitely a conceited prick.

      • yeppers

        she did thats for sure…but I think she is Young…there are thousands of fake pages for all entertainers…its kinda scary to know that people will personally contact children like this. No matter how stupid she might have been to think bow wow would hit her up…some people are just that gullible. Im like this…Im around fine celeb men alot being that i live in LA. If we dont hit it off IN PERSON where i can see you…dont contact me online and ask me NOTHING…because im not giving you my information or belive nothin u say. I dont play that mess. you betta be tryin to SKYPE, facetime…ALL OF THAT FROM DAY 1.

    • Shedarra Hill

      Yes, he is! Like for real Bow Wow? Ain’t nobody checkin for you. How is it that at one point you were a bigger star than Terrance J and might still considered a bigger star (even though Terrance is doing his thing) but you were his replacement? That’s not an upgrade boo. Seems more like a last resort to me. Bow Wow is a cutie, but it dont mean anything when you’re a jerk and know nothing about humility. He couldn’t get my draws. But anyway, I digress. He’s a jerk #thatsall
