On Mother's Day, a talk show in Cambodia told a 13-year-old girl she would be reunited with her estranged mom. It was all a "joke."

Cambodian television program Penh Chet Ort (Like It Or Not) pulled what can only be described as a twisted horror-prank on 13-year-old singer/actress Autumn Allen. The show told Allen she would be reunited with her mother, who she hadn't seen since leaving the US with her father at the age of 6. Allen was tearful and said it was a "dream come true."

But when the hosts brought out Allen's "mom" it ended up being a male comedian in drag.
