With 2011 winding down I thought it would be fun to talk about the biggest celebrity scandals of the past year. My favorite thing about celebrities is their bad behavior, so it’s really a no-brainer.
I know there are much more important things going on in the world today, but I happen to find the ridiculousness of the privileged hilarious.
Go ahead and judge me, while I judge them…a full circle moment, indeed.
Today we are going to go over my #10 through #5 picks.
Let’s get this show on the road…
10. Christina Aguilera gets arrested for public intoxication.
First she messed up the lyrics to the National Anthem at the Superbowl. Learn the words, people! THEN she just about fell off the stage at the Grammy’s while performing an Aretha Franklin tribute. Within a week she got arrested leaving a restaurant with her boyfriend completely hammered and he got arrested for a DUI.
On a good note she was part of the super successful show, The Voice this year, but even with it’s success she still looked like a hot mess.
My wish for Christina in 2012 ~ a new makeup team!
9. Doug Hutchison and Courtney Stodden get married.
He’s one of those actors that you know you’ve seen, but can’t place where.
Let me help you out…he was on Lost, 24 and CSI. He has also starred in movies like The Green Mile and I Am Sam.
Well. Homeboy is 51 years old.
He married a self proclaimed “Christian girl” named Courtney Stodden. She was 16.
In an interview with People magazine Hutchison defends his choice saying, “it’s okay, I’ve been called worse than a pedophile in my life.”
Ummm, really? What else have you been called?
My wish for Hutchison/Stodder in 2012 ~ That they wait to make their inevitable sex tape until little sweetie turns 18.
8. Alec Baldwin plays Words With Friends
Ok, he doesn’t just play Words With Friends. He plays with mucho gusto!
Baldwin got kicked off a United Airline flight for refusing to turn off his iPad mid-move in an intense game of Words With Friends. How DARE they?
Apparently he didn’t turn it off after being asked repeatedly, then when he decided he would comply, he yelled, hollared and in a fit of rage, slammed the door to the latrine.
He was, susequently, escorted off the plane.
Mr. Baldwin followed up his Words With Friends meltdown with justifying tweets and an appearance on SNL poking fun at the situation.
Meanwhile Words With Friends looked on, an innocent word-game bystander.
I do like Alec as an actor, but I kinda think he is a d-bag of epic proportions when he is not pretending to be someone else.
My wish for Alec in 2012 ~ Words With Friends Rehab and/or anger management.
7. J.Lo/Mark Anthony divorce
I have never been a huge Marc Anthony fan.
When he appeared on American Idol this year he seemed desperate for the attention his wife was getting and really…well, really skinny! I don’t think he could possibly weigh more than 120 lbs…and when a man weighs less than me, it tends to create issues.
JLo has bounced back nicely…her popularity now rivaling the days of Bennifer. She has a young back-up dancer boyfriend, the new season of American Idol about to kick off and Fiat commercials that your DVR can’t escape.
My wish for Marc Anthony in 2012 ~ have a cheeseburger!
6. Lindsay Lohan, Jewelry Thief
But it always seems odd to me when celebrities steal stuff. We all assume they have enough money to pay for the item they swipe, so it never really makes sense. PLUS, celebrities are ALWAYS on camera, especially one as epically sloppy as Lohan. Those photographers must follow her around all day, everyday trying to catch her new spray tan, her new leggings, or even her picking her nose, which is a totally money shot. So how in the world did she think she would not get caught in the act?
Well, I certainly don’t know the motives of Ms. Lohan, but i will say that I hope she can get her act together. I don’t think that there is anyone who wouldn’t love to see a Lohan comeback….but here’s a little advice Linds: Don’t stage a comeback based around a biopic of Linda Lovelace or a Playboy spread. Just a thought.
My wish for Lindsay in 2012 ~ Take a year off, divorce your parents and find a hair stylist that likes you.
5. Bieber baby drama
I am more of a New Kids on the Block gal, and seeing as I have all boys, I have been inoculated against The Bieber Fever.
BUT I don’t live under a rock, so I understand that he is a “thing” right now. That is until he goes through his awkward late teens/early 20′s faze where boys are no longer cute, but aren’t really handsome either.
Well apparently some crazy girl decided she was going to jump on the Bieber train and accuse our man, Justin, of being her baby daddy.
It didn’t end well for the accuser, because J. Beebs handled the whole situation like a pro…agreeing to take a paternity test.
Her allegations continued to spiral downward when her ex-boyfriend totally sold her out, claiming that the whole thing was a get-rich-quick scheme. He also claimed that HE was the baby daddy and that Beebs was an innocent.
My wish for Bieber in 2012 ~ keep on keepin’ on, man. Looks like you have everything under control.
So there you have my #10-#5 choices for celebrity scandals, 2011.
Come back tomorrow to see who topped the list…
