Soledad O’Brien Shared Her Most Embarrassing Moment And It Is Nice To Know We Aren’t Alone

With so much time to kill at the moment, just about everyone is on social media engaging in the TMI / walk down memory lane. Whether it’s stories about our old school days or odd former flames, people are baring their souls.

In the latest TMI share on Twitter, users are opening about their weirdest and most embarrassing injuries.

Afro-Latina queen Soledad O’Brien shared a pretty wild story of humiliation.

So we decided to ask you guys, our mitú audience, to tell us some of your crazy embarrassing stories and boy did you deliver!

Turns out, some of you have been caught cursing at churches…

“On the day of my cousins wedding the bride asked me to go get her bouquet from inside the church where the florist had left them. As I round the front pew I didn’t notice they had a weird cut out for wheelchairs. Well as i found out when I felt my ankle pop as I rolled it and fell to the ground in pain, but not before yelling out oh F’K….quickly followed by an I’m sorry because I was in church. I was so embarrassed because the church choir was practicing heard and saw the whole thing.” – anntta_lop

This story has the oddest ending because of a goat…

“When I was younger living on a farm one thing led to another and my feet were caught in the leash of a running baby calf so your boy got dragged a decent amount through our gravel driveway.” – pablomcd3

This story is pretty relatable for every 90s kid into McDonald’s.

“When I was younger, don’t remember the age I was, I was at McDonald’s and my dumbass fell down the stairs from the playground area. And my dad had to take me to the hospital to get snitches under my chin. And I still have the scar to this day. Worst day ever.” -jocy_villas

This story will make you think twice about sitting in a truck bed.

“I would sit in the back of my dad’s truck when I was little and I slid off the truck because I didn’t want to jump. But there was piece of the metal sticking out and it cut the bottom of my butt cheek. It wasn’t until I felt my pants wet that I noticed it cut me and I’m looking at my hand with blood running to my mom telling her I cut my butt cheek. I still have the scar.”-gabby.ml

LOL, this one which features a lesson for chismosas.

“I was being chismosa and looking out the window at 1 am. I was crawling on my knees so the Calle wouldn’t see me peaking out & lost balance, slipped and busted the center of my brow. Required 6 sutures. I try to mind my own business now.”- _ashleyalonso_

Yikes! This crazy story about the sleep dust you get in your eyes in the morning.

“Ummmn. I sliced my leg with a dust pan requiring 21 stiches. I also had to go to the UC because I got the morning crust on my eye stuck deep in my eye. I had 2 medical staff working on my eye. 🤦only me.”- medusahiggins

I bet she’ll never curse in front of kids again…

“Wearing wedges, leaving soccer practice with my kids & mom when I saw this stupid rock in the middle of the field in the one spot that was all dirt, I managed to declare “out loud to the rock…,” you f#!*’n rock!” Had time to see the rock but not avoid said rock. Of course, I stepped on the rock & because I was wearing wedges, I face planted in the dirt patch, in front of all the kids & their parents…kicked up a nice dust cloud around me and just could not stop laughing at myself on the ground! 😄 My mom also took the time to point out as she walked over me, “oh look you fell.” All parents must of thought I was nuts…” –tkitty1969

Who knew breaking your foot while standing was even possible?

“One time I was at a house party, DRUNK dancing to the song “We like to party” like the six flags theme song and decided to sit down for a sip of my drink. When I tried to stand back up to dance some more, I felt my foot crack. Thought it was weird for a second, tried to walk, couldn’t. Turns out I broke my foot standing up 😅 I hate myself.” –nursehai_

And this mistake which is sadly so relatable.

“I broke my foot because I was dancing. And one of my wife’s tios trying to join me and lost his footing so he ended up kinda tackling me. And so all of his weight and my weight came down on my left foot so I ended up breaking three bones off my foot. Yeah I still tell him ima send him the medical bill when I see him at the pedas.” – theycallmefurr

There’s A Reason This Brutally Honest Adoption Ad For A ‘Demonic Man-Hating Chihuahua’ Named Prancer Went Viral

Adopter be ware.

That’s the message that a desperate New Jersey foster mom shared in a recent plea to animal lovers potentially interested in adopting a Chihuahua named Prancer. In a viral post shared on Facebook, animal foster mom Tyfanee Fortuna attempted to make an appeal to adopters on behalf of the dog whom she describes as a “haunted Victorian child in the body of a small dog that hates men and children.”

The post didn’t take long to go viral.

In a shockingly honest post, Fortuna spoke on the personality traits of the dog named Prancer on social media.

“There’s not a very big market for neurotic, man-hating, animal-hating, children-hating dogs that look like gremlins,” Fortuna underlined in the post shared to Facebook. “But I have to believe there’s someone out there for Prancer, because I am tired and so is my family. Every day we live in the grips of the demonic Chihuahua hellscape he has created in our home.”

It didn’t take long for Fortuna’s comedic Facebook post about Prance to amass nearly 64K shares.

“Prancer only likes women. Nothing else,” another portion of the post explained. “He hates men more than women do, which says a lot. If you have a husband don’t bother applying, unless you hate him.”

Smitten viewers of the post who were interested in Prancer were thankfully quick to request a chance to adopt him.

“We are still accepting applicants who are within a 3- to 4-hour radius of New Jersey, as we are still sifting through applications and trying to pick out his best fit,” Fortuna explained to Today in an interview. “A lot of people have applied who have husbands and pets, and we’d prefer he go to a home with just women and no other pets.”

Fortuna works as foster mom for the Oak Ridge, New Jersey-based Second Chance Pet Adoption League and is hopeful that someone will help Prancer find a suitable and loving home. 

WhileFortuna was sure to underline some of Prancer’s more intense traits, she also listed those that plenty would find loveable.

“He is loyal beyond belief, although to tell you a secret his complex is really just a facade for his fear. If someone tried to kill you I can guarantee he would run away screeching. But as far as companionship, you will never be alone again,” she wrote of the sweetie. “He likes to go for car rides, he is housebroken, he knows a few basic commands, he is quiet and non-destructive when left alone at home, and even though we call him bologna face he is kind of cute to look at.”

Mariah Carey Got Her First Dose Of The Vaccine And Made It Into An Iconic Moment

@MariahCarey / Twitter

Vaccines are rolling out across the country. People are getting their shots so life can finally start getting back to normal after a year of quarantining and social distancing. Mariah Carey let her fans join on her first shot and it became iconic.

Mariah Carey got her first shot of the vaccine and hit that whistle note.

More and more Americans are finally getting vaccinated to get the world back to normal. More than 160 million vaccines have been given in the U.S. and people are starting to see the results. Life is slowly getting back to normal for families who haven’t seen each other in years.

The singer was “excited and nervous a little bit” about getting the vaccine. Her demeanor showed just how impactful it is for people to do their part to get us back to normal.

True to form, Carey was in her camera-ready pose when she was getting ready.

People receiving the vaccine are told to keep their arm relaxed but Carey clearly isn’t made for that. How do you just turn off your star charisma?

It’s important to keep your arm relaxed while you are getting your vaccination to save you from the pain. If your arm is tense or in an awkward position, it is more likely to move during the jab, which can be painful. Listen to your nurses.

Some people are very curious how someone so young got the vaccine.

President Joe Biden announced that all states must make vaccine eligibility open to all adults by April 19. Some states are allowing people as young as 16 to get vaccinated. This is an accelerated deadline from the previously called for May 1. President Biden has worked hard to push the vaccination rate up and he has delivered on his promises for various vaccination deadlines.

People want to know if the vocal skills are a side effect of the vaccine.

There are a lot of conspiracy theories circulating about the vaccine. Some people believe that Bill Gates is microchipping them using the vaccine. It is a conspiracy that persists despite people definitively debunking the theory.

Congratulations, Mariah!

The world is eager to get back to normal and the vaccination rollout across the world is going to get us there. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is slowly releasing new guidelines about what fully vaccinated people are able to do.

For example, it is safe for fully vaccinated people to gather in small groups indoors without masks and social distancing. Fully vaccinated people can also fly on airplanes without much risk because of the effectiveness of the vaccine.
