Wow, this is just gross.
Belle Gibson, Australian health blogger and author of the book The Whole Pantry, has come clean.
Reports came out a few weeks ago that she was not, as she had claimed, donating a percentage of her profits to cancer research.

Even worse, Gibson was accused of lying about her terminal cancer diagnosis!
In a shocking interview with The Australian Women's Weekly, the single mom finally admitted it. She's never had cancer! Gibson revealed:
"No… None of it's true. I am still jumping between what I think I know and what is reality. I have lived it and I'm not really there yet."
She actually lied about having cancer for personal profit! We are frankly having a hard time thinking of something more despicable at the moment.
And she actually expects to get credit for coming clean! She finished her interview by saying:
"Above anything, I would like people to say, 'Okay, she's human. She's obviously had a big life. She's respectfully come to the table and said what she's needed to say, and now it's time for her to grow and heal."
Preying on the human sympathies and essentially stealing money that would have gone to those in need by telling people proceeds are going to charity??
Uh-uh, gurl. It's not time to grow and heal. It's time for a full-on fraud investigation.
