Umm, this is NOT what we were expecting from TLC.
Check out the official statement (below)!

Valery Spiridonov, a 30-year-old computer scientist from Russia, is willing to put his life on the line for a "world's first" operation.
He'd be literally sticking his neck out for Dr. Sergio Canavero, who some in the medical community have called "nuts."
That's because Dr. Canavero wants to perform the world's first HEAD TRANSPLANT!!
Why would anyone volunteer for that?? Spiridonov would because he's wheelchair bound, with a rare, genetic, degenerative muscular disease called Werdnig-Hoffman.
This fan love has taken its toll on Adam Levine!
First he hits an audience member in the head with his microphone, now they're rushing the stage!
At a Maroon 5 concert in Anaheim on Monday night, a fan got a little too friendly, running onstage and grabbing the singer from behind!
Good thing Adam is an old pro — and Behati Prinsloo wasn't there — because the situation could have gotten a lot worse!
Watch Adam handle the manhandler with all the coolness we've come to expect from him (below)!
This is some serious future sh*t!
What if we told you that a scientist was able to grow a "beef" patty in a lab that was actually edible and didn't taste awful?
Would U try one??
Well, it's a real thing, and it's called 'schmeat.' It may sound like we just made that up but it's a real protein, grown in a lab from stem cells.
Mark Post, a vascular biologist at the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands, created the mad scientist burger.
It originally cost about $385,000 to produce, but now, it could get down to about $9 per patty.
So that's in the "gourmet" burger price range but c'mon, it's kinda a world's first!
They grew this meat in a lab!! So we gotta ask:
Would U eat a lab-grown "burger?"

Word on the street is 20th Century Fox is making a deal with Hasbro to make a live-action film based on one of their best products:
We guess the Lego movie was so successful, they feel they can make any toy into a movie. Wonderful. (Sarcasm.)
Though if there were one person (other than the team of Phil Lord & Chris Miller, who did the Lego movie) who could make the Play-Doh movie amazing, it'd probably be Paul Feig.
Even though Feig is super busy with the all-woman Ghostbusters reboot, we're sure he'll make time for Play-Doh.
But can Feig mold Play-Doh into an enjoyable film? Especially a live-action film??
We guess we'll have to wait and see.
Do U think Play-Doh will make a good movie?? Let us know in the comments!!
This is one alligator we wouldn't want to see later!
The Myakka Pines Golf Club in Englewood, Florida sometimes has a 13-ft reptile visitor every now and then, and this past Thursday the alligator named Goliath made a return to its stomping fair grounds.
But the alligator wasn't alone.
Goliath was spotted snacking on a really big turtle and the alligator did it in front of all the golfers on the course with no shame!
Here's what the Myakka Pines Golf Club wrote on their Facebook page
Devin Norman is a 26-year-old gay man who was brutally beaten, simply for being gay.
But now there are conflicting reports. Now, more details are emerging and the FBI is getting involved!!
It all went down in the town of Corinth, Mississippi when James Scott, 23, brutally beat Devin Norman in a Walmart parking lot. That part is not really in dispute. But the 'why' is.
He allegedly came out of nowhere and attacked Devin, screaming homophobic slurs at him and kicking him repeatedly.
Police eventually caught and arrested Mr. Scott, who was charged with simple assault. Due to the serious nature of Norman's wounds, people were outraged the charge wasn't "aggravated assault." It was eventually upgraded from "simple" to "aggravated" after police realized Norman had broken bones.
What upset people the most, though, was that LGBT people have no hate crime protection under Mississippi law. So James Scott was going to get off pretty easy compared to what could've happened.
That's when people in the community
A building in Manhattan's East Village has exploded and collapsed, and injuries are being reported.
Just around 3:20pm today, an explosion happened at a mixed residential and commercial building, at the corner of 7th Street and Second Avenue.
The Fire Department has already reported at least 12 injuries, four of which were critical, and were actively battling the SEVEN alarm blaze!
The original building that exploded apparently collapsed and the fire spread to adjacent buildings, too. Over 250 firefighters were called to the scene.
