Then We'll Get Six Cabbage Patch Dolls And Not Let Anyone See Them Up Close

| No Comments

I figure I owe you another White Trash Wednesday post, given that yesterday's turned out to be much ado about nothing. I didn't have to wait very long, as today we hear about a Missouri couple who pretended to have newborn sextuplets so they could hop on the sympathy gravy train:

GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. -- A couple who claimed to have recently given birth to sextuplets apologized Wednesday night for the hoax, KMBC's Lara Moritz reported.

Kris and Sarah Everson admitted to police Tuesday night that they made up the story, but the couple never publicly addressed the issue until Wednesday night.

"We didn't mean to hurt anybody by doing what we did," Kris Everson said. "We did it out of necessity for financial reasons. Anybody who helped out will be paid back in full."

Moritz reported that the Eversons' plea for financial help included a Web site asking for donations, specifically gift cards or cash.
