We hope you're sitting down for these, people.
We hope you're prepared.
We hope your jaw is ready for the impact of the fall its about to take when it hits the floor.
Because what follows is a list of stunning celebrities confessions that left us reeling back when they first went public... and which still leave us in shock all this time later:
I have HIV...
Charlie Sheen confirmed this rumor via an exclusive interview with The Today Show. He finally came clean after years of being blackmailed by friends and prostitutes.
I took steroids...
Yes you did, Lance Armstrong. Following years of adamant denials, Lance Armstrong finally revealed the truth in a 2013 interview with Oprah.
I smoked crack...
Rob Ford made this confession after talk circulated that a videotape existed of the Toronto Mayor... well... smoking crack. His exact quote will go down in history: "Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine. Probably in one of my drunken stupors, probably approximately a year ago."
Okay, I DID have sex with that woman...
After denying any sort of inappropriate touching with Monica Lewinsky, Bill Clinton made a televised address to the nation, admitting to an "improper physical relationship" with his intern. The House of Representatives voted to impeach the president for perjury, but he was subsequently acquitted.
Of course Ellen DeGeneres is gay, right? No big deal! Try telling that to the comedian when she went public with this announcement in 1997.
I consider myself a woman...
Caitlyn Jenner made her gender transformation official when she told Diane Sawyer in April 2015 that she views herself as a woman.
Even you, David Petraeus?!?
David Petraeus, a decorated war hero, stunned the country when resigned as director of the CIA in November 2012 after an FBI investigation uncovered an extramarital affair he had with his biographer. Said the general: "After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair."
I'm sorry, Rob...
Plenty of celebrities have cheated. But few were in as high a profile relationship as Kristen Stewart was in with Robert Pattinson. And few came out with a statement confirming the affair soon afterward and apologizing.
My bad on the underwear pics...
After suggestive photos of his penis inside his underwear, sent to women who were not his wife, surfaced, representative Anthony Weiner confessed: "I am here today to again apologize for the personal mistakes I have made and the embarrassment I have caused." He resigned from office as a result of the scandal.
I was drunk while filming Harry Potter...
So said Daniel Radcliffe in 2012. The actor has never referred to himself as an "alcoholic," but he now stays away from alcohol and this admission came as a stunner.
I messed up...
So Hugh Grant told Jay Leno upon admitting that he paid a prostitute to give him oral sex. The actor was dating Elizabeth Hurley at the time.
On an episode of Watch What Happens Live, Martha Stewart admitted to sexting and said “maybe when asked if she ever had a threesome.
Better than when she is there, right?
In 2012, Nick Cannon told Howard Stern that he sometimes pleasured himself to songs by then-wife Mariah Carey "when she's not there."
It took an unusually long time, but Rachel Dolezal finally confessed that she is "biologically white," after claiming forever that she were somehow African-American.
What's a toothbrush?
"I don't brush my teeth," Jessica Simpson has said. "No really! I just use Listerine - and sometimes I'll use my sweater." At least she now knows the difference between tuna and chicken... right?
I use lip liners!
Thank you, Kylie Jenner. Was this really so difficult to own up to after all those denials?
I had an abortion...
Chelsea Handler opened up The Rosie Show in February 2010, admitting for the first time that she had an abortion at the age of 16.
An ongoing problem...
Portia de Rossi told Good Morning America that she began to have disordered eating from the age of 12. She admitted on air to struggles over the years with anorexia and bulimia.
