7 Real Life Crazies Who Make You Appreciate Your Frenemies


The worst friends. Ever.

As the saying goes: Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer...but we're willing to bet that Joy McCall's BFF wishes she would have put some extra distance between her and her supposed friend — who had been sleeping with her 12-year-old son behind her back. Yikes!

After reading these 7 headlines, you might want to think about keeping your frenemies far, far away. Read on for some of the wildest stories of friendship gone wrong.

1. Woman sentenced to 10 years in prison for sleeping with friend's son.
Where do we even start?! It's bad enough to find out that your 12-year-old son has already started doing the deed, but to find out that he's been deflowered by your supposed BFF, who has kids who are the SAME age as him, is truly devastating. The cat was let out of the bag when the victim told a friend at CHURCH that he was sleeping with his friend's mom — there was even evidence of sexting on his phone to backup the claim. Joy McCall will serve 10 years for two counts of battery on a child.

2. Woman charged for asking fake Facebook friend to kill family.
This is the stuff that Law & Order episodes are made of. When 19-year-old Marissa Williams started bringing men home to her aunt's house, where she resided, Marissa's aunt got to the bottom of how her niece was meeting these men — by catfishing her niece, posing as a Tre 'Topdog' Ellis, and friending Marissa on Facebook from the fake account. But Marissa's aunt got more troubling information than she could ever have imagined, when Marissa asked "Tre" to murder her family — even the dog! Marissa is facing 10 years to life in prison if she's convicted of solicitation for murder — a class-A felony.

3. Friend helped with move, then helped himself to friend's possessions.
As if moving isn't expensive enough! One man's moving boxes were suspiciously light after Tanner Allen Hublar helped him move into his new digs. Hublar lifted about $1,900 in possessions, including an iPad mini. He was arrested on "theft by unlawful taking" charges last week.

4. Man charged with shooting friend in botched test of bulletproof vest.
You should probably think twice about helping your buddy out when it comes to testing his new bulletproof gear. Mark Ramiro missed the body armor on the vest his friend was wearing when he aimed and pulled the trigger on his .22 caliber handgun. He now faces murder charges for the death of his 28-year-old friend.

5. Man charged with tricking friend into sex act.
What sounded like a good wingmanship ended in some serious deception. When Joseph Allen Rucci told his friend that he wanted to set him up with a woman who was interested in performing a sex act on him while he was blindfolded, the friend agreed to the arrangement. However, Rucci's friend started to get suspicious when he didn't hear a female's voice the entire time. When he checked surveillance cameras from the hotel where it all went down, he found that only he and Rucci entered the room — and only he and Rucci left. Rucci is being charged with sexual offenses in the second and fourth degree, as well as perverted practice and second-degree assault.

6. Woman assaults friend with mirror over dispute.
If breaking a mirror is really seven years bad luck, then Barbara Raposo is about to be in for a rude awakening. The 49-year-old ended a dispute with her 60-year-old BFF by breaking a mirror over his head. FYI — cracking someone over the head with a mirror will earn you a charge of assault and battery by means of a "dangerous" weapon.

7. Woman racks up $3,000 on friend's stolen credit card .
This gives a new meaning to "shopping with a friend." 31-year-old New York woman (who requested to have her name removed from this article) swiped her BFF's credit card from her wallet, and charged over $3,000 to it over a two-month period. Her friend had no idea the card was gone until she began getting calls from the credit card company a few months later, after the damage was already done. She is facing grand larceny charges, as well as identity theft and falsifying business records.
