Like most years 2010 saw no shortage of major Hollywood scandals and minor celebrity missteps. There were the typical DUIs and rehab visits, several high profile divorces (can you say Jesse James and Tiger Woods?) and even some off the wall allegedly fake kidnapping plots (yes, that was Jeremy London). So it was difficult to choose our top five scandalous moments of the year, but we did finally narrow it down to these picks that range in scope from childish behavior to life threatening anger issues.
5. Miley Cyrus and the Bong
We know that the bong Miley Cyrus got caught smoking from was not filled with pot but instead contained a legal herb called salvia. But still, does anyone really think this is good role model behavior for the ex-“Hannah Montana” star adored by so may twelve years olds? One thing is for sure, Miley is doing a great job distancing herself from the squeaky-clean Disney image.
4. Lady Gaga Vists the Yankees
Scandal is Lady Gaga’s middle name, so it was not easy to chose just one incident for the list. Animal lovers were offended by her all-meat dress at the Grammys, while religious groups did not think too fondly of her “Alejandro” video. But to us the worst Gaga faux pas this year was her dual Major League Baseball gaffs. According to the New York Post, On the heels of giving the middle finger to fans at a Mets game, Gaga arrived pantless and fishnet-clad to visit the Yankees’ clubhouse, where she reportedly was swigging whiskey and fondling her own exposed black bra.
3. Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva
No one was too shocked to learn that Mel Gibson had a temper or that his relationship with the women he dumped his wife of 26 years for was coming to end. But the alleged audio tapes posted on RadarOnline.com of the “Lethal Weapon” star threatening Oksana’s life and telling her she deserved to be hit, sent a wave of disbelief through the celebrity-watching world.
2. Heidi Montag’s Surgery
Plastic surgery is as commonplace as hair extensions in Hollywood these days, but even Tinseltown wondered “how far is too far?” when 23-year-old Heidi Montag told People Magazine that she had ten surgeries in one day. “The Hills” star subjected herself to a brow lift, a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, a butt implant, lipo, botox and more because she allegedly was insecure about her looks. Wonder who made her feel that way? Any ideas, Spencer?
1. Charlie Sheen and the Porn Star
Charlie started off the year on a bad note, with his arrest for domestic violence against his wife Brooke Mueller. But Sheen, who is great at rebounding (over and over again), checked himself into rehab and seemed to be back on track with a nice big contract renewal from “Two and a Half Men.” Sadly given his history no one really expected it to last. And so it seemed to come as no surprise when Charlie was removed from a hotel room on October 26 after a drunken trade and claims that he locked his porn star date in the bathroom.
