My mum is facebook friends with a 'celebrity'

A celebrity that my Mum 'likes' on Facebook added her on a private account a little while ago, and she's been talking to whoever is running the account, believing it's the actual celebrity she's talking to. This makes her happy, and she likes to share the things they talk about, but it makes my heart break because I know it's not real. I want this person to stop talking to her, but I don't know how to make them go away without her getting embarrassed or hurt by it. I would confront them from my account but I don't want them to bring it up to my Mum once they see we're mutual friends and have to tell her the truth. The last thing I ever want to do is hurt my mother, but I can't stand the thought of her getting fooled by some fake.

  • Unfortunately on Facebook there is no way to tell if a "celebrity" is the real person. On Twitter, you know if a "celebrity" is the real person because most celebrities on Twitter are verified by Twitter (If a "celebrity" is the real person, he/she will have a check mark by the name- a check mark in a blue circle). Almost every celebrity has a Twitter account, but most don't reply. If you get a reply, you're very lucky. I've gotten a few replies from Kathy Hilton (the mother of Paris Hilton), but I've never gotten a reply from Paris. I've gotten two replies from Bakari Sellers (a political commentator on CNN). I've gotten a reply from Kyle Richards (a reality t.v. star on the reality t.v. series The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills). I've gotten a few replies from W. Kamau Bell (a stand-up political comedian who hosts United Shades of America on CNN). I've gotten a reply from Emeril (a celebrity t.v. chef).

  • Make sure that she doesn't send them money....
