Shirlene & James Reveal | Catfish: The TV Show


(knocking) – Hello? Oh, here’s somebody. (door opening) Uh, how ya doin’? – I’m nervous, really nervous. – Nervous, okay,
well that’s okay. I think we’re all
a little nervous. – (whispering) Who
is he talking to? – (whispering) I don’t know. – Why don’t you come out? (door closing) – (whispering) What
— stand by me. (dramatic music) (gate creaking open) Whaaaaat. – [Kamie] Hi. – What’s up. – I’m Kamie. – Mya. – Mya? – Mya, yeah. – Nice to meet you. – [Nev] And this, as
you know, is Shirlene. – [Mya] Yeah. – So, James… is that a real — – Is he real? – No. – Is it you? – Yeah. – [Nev] It’s been
you the whole time. – [Mya] Yeah. – [Nev] Okay. – Why did you do this to me? I mean, you basically wasted my
time coming out here. I have a little boy. – Yeah. – Let’s go in here. Just so you don’t have to feel like everybody’s
lookin’ at you. Do you live here in Tuba City? – Yeah, I live here and in Zuni. – Okay, so you are Zuni. – Half Navajo, half Zuni. – [Nev] Half Navajo,
half Zuni. Okay. And how old are you? – I’m 18. – You’re a youngin’. I’m way older than you! And — Oh my gosh, this is weird. Are those little girls real? – The daughters that
James said died. Are those… – No. – That’s a (beep) up
thing to lie about. – Yeah, I would never
lie about my son dying. Like that part, you
should have never said. – I know. – How did you come up
with all these lies? You talked about keys, you talked about dying, you talked about a lotta stuff. I cried, I literally cried. – When I did that that was me trying to let that profile die down. And I tried shutting it down but I couldn’t really let it go and everything because I would have
no one else to talk to. – [Nev] And when did you
start the James profile? – Roughly, I could say
about two years ago after my sister passed
away from drinking. That’s when that
James profile came in. That love, I was
missing that love, that affection, that
comfort from somebody. – So what, was the profile
mostly talking to women? Or men? Or? – Both. Just to create a friendship and to create a bond. – Shirlene tells
us that she thought you guys were in a
romantic relationship. Is that how it felt for you? You thought this was kind
of like your boyfriend. – Yeah. – You guys were
sharing “I love yous.” You said “I love
you” after a month. – Yeah, well, you know, like
best friends can say that too. They say like, oh I love you. – Right, but when a hot guy
tells a cute girl “I love you,” it means something
different than when two best buddy girlfriends
say “I love you.” – Yeah. – [Nev] So for her,
that “I love you” meant a lot more. – [Mya] Yeah. – And you knew that. – Yeah. – [Nev] You had to know that. – Yeah. If you wanna be mad and
frustrated with me — – Oh, I’m mad. – I understand that. I just did it because I was
missing that love and affection. You know, you were that
person that was there to listen to what I had to say. I told you things that I
never even told nobody. I never even told my
family, my friends, nothing. And when my sister passed away, I was put in foster care. – I grew up in
part of that, too. – That (beep) was rough, man. Like, they took my little
brother away from me. They took a lot of
things away from me. I’m really sorry, I really wanted to tell you, but I never got that
courage to tell you. – So, I don’t know
what your feelings are and what you’re
comfortable talking about, but I’m willing to bet that you
do have feelings for her. – No. When we talked, it’s like, she’s really there to listen and that’s what I liked about her, that she can listen, she’s caring, she’s
loving, she’s smart. But it was like a friendship. (birds chirping) – Let’s just go back into
the car for a second. Why don’t you go inside and then we can talk
a little bit more. – Yeah. – All right. (gate creaking open) (door closing) – This is like some
next level (beep). Oh my god. It’s crazy. – I just don’t believe that she doesn’t have romantic
feelings for her. – You know what, just knowing I
thought she was a guy, we had like sexual
talk, kind of. – You texted? – Sexual. – [Nev] So clearly — – Oh my gosh, that’s why
I was standing there like what the hell. – I think she
definitely likes you. – Yeah, she’s just maybe
not ready to admit it. I think we just need to use
a little bit of tough love. Something’s gotta give.
