The woman who helped inspire former Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant star Lexi Tatman to want to be a funeral director has been arrested, along with her mother, for allegedly selling decedents’ body parts without the consent of the family members.

JEZEBEL – Rest assured that the Oprah sex trafficking hoax is just that. But, if you hadn’t heard about this particular bit of viral nonsense, strap yourself in for a doozy! (And remember that it only took the length of a fitful night’s sleep for this 100% fake story to trend #1 on Twitter)
THE BLEMISH – It turns out that Amanda Bynes, still in recovery and recently un-engaged to her now ex Paul Michael, is pregnant with her first child
REALITY TEA – At least one unending wait is now over: Vanderpump Rules stars Brittany Cartweight and Jax Taylor were finally married on last night’s episode. MVP of the ceremony went to Tom Sandoval; looks like the over / under on the length of the marriage is around two years
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – In other Vanderpump Rules news (and in an unfortunate turn toward the COVID-19 portion of today’s links post), “Star Scheana Shay Slammed Online for Making Light of Quarantine Advisories; Later Backpedals on Refusal to Stay Home”

DLISTED – You can’t go out to the movies for the foreseeable future, but you can stream Cats from the comfort of your home. Yes, that Cats. On the one hand, I don’t know how that’s supposed to make anyone feel better; on the other, why was the studio holding it back for a regular release such that a coronavirus-inspired *early* release was possible at all?
GO FUG YOURSELF – March Madness is canceled; Fug Madness lives on
VOX – Finally, here’s a little light reading for right before you go to bed: “This pandemic will expose who we are as a country: ‘We’re bumping up against the limits of excessive American individualism and market society.'”

Just as it appeared that Matthew Blevins was the undisputed king of Unexpected multiple baby mama messiness, OG dad Shayden Massey tosses his hat (and apparently something else) in the ring! The 20-year old posted a sonogram on Monday with the vague caption: “I’ll just leave this here.” His followers began congratulating Shayden’s new girlfriend Meah, but she quickly chimed in to reveal that the baby isn’t hers!
