2014 was full of Hollywood stars behaving oddly (See Shia LaBeouf and Amanda Bynes) and loads of fake viral videos. But this year saw fabrication with dead-serious ripple effects as well. Here are the prevaricators who rose to the top of the LieSpotting list this year:
If we stop finding this all so funny, maybe it will give the girl some space to acknowledge there's a problem and then, ideally, get help for it.
Mental health is not having a problem. It's how you address all of the challenges in your life. It's how you handle stress, break-ups, rejection, lack of sleep, loss and everything else. We need a clear definition of mental health as a baseline.
Seeing the rise and fall of teen idols such as Justin Bieber, Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Bynes, and Britney Spears really makes me realize how important positive mentors can be. Not all teen stars have walked the negative path.
2. Healthcare.gov. The part this poorly-designed site played--or failed to play for that matter--in the introduction of Obamacare was damn-near disastrous. We live in a world where babies know how to use iPads. Figure it out, America.
If you're a happy person, you will probably be even happier with more money, but if you are an unhappy person, no amount of money will change that. Make happiness your goal. Let the money take care of itself.
In and outside of the realm of social media, the lack of compassion with which we continue to regard mental health has emerged as the one aspect of Amanda Bynes' tragic story that is truly #ugly.

I thought I would break down for you Channing Tatum's five gayest movie roles -- so far. And I say that because, as you'll see, they keep getting gayer and gayer. James Franco, beware! Tatum is catching up fast. And I couldn't be happier.
Mattie Kahn Ah, sanity. It can be so aesthetically limiting. Thankfully, not everyone feels bound by its strictures. Ever the trend-setting bunch, s...
Amanda Bynes is, without a doubt, an 11 on the media dubbed "hot mess" Richter scale, and it seems like there is some kind of cultural payoff in watching her seismic mishaps expand.
I am very sad about what Amanda Bynes is going through. She may have mental health issues or substance abuse issues or both. She is not unlike many other celebrities who take an emotional tumble as they get into their twenties.
What a girl wants? What a girl needs? The answer to that is attention.
Amanda Bynes has been in the news recently after a flurry of erratic behavior both in the real world and on Twitter.
