and Reviews> 2006 List of Celebrities Gone Bad
Our review of some of the most notable celebrity scandals and blunders
that filled our gossip magazines and entertained us on television.
Celebrities are people we look up to and admire from a distance.
We place them on a pedestal and assume they can do no wrong. But
this myth is shattered each year as we see our favorite celebrities
go bad and do things that make us blush or make us angry.
When they do go bad and make mistakes, the media is there to capture
every detail, and perhaps even exaggerate some details (yes, our
celebrity gossip magazines sometimes exaggerate the mishaps of
our all powerful celebrities!).
Would there be a Britney Spears panty scandal if there were no
paparazzi waiting at her car door to capture the moment? If a
tree falls in a forest, and nobody's around, does it make a sound?
Quite often they are human moments that we all do, and would be
just as guilty of if we had a photographer watching our every
move. But some moments are inexcusable and offensive no matter
how you look at it.
Here's our list of top ten scandals and blunders by celebrities
Top 10 Celebrity Scandals & Blunders @ QuoteMonk.com
Richards for being racist.
We all loved him as Kramer on Seinfeld,
but what was Michael Richards thinking when he verbally attacked
people in the crowd of a comedy club, using the word nigger
Spears for flashing. With her career in a downward spiral,
and her mothering skills being questioned, the pop princess
has been photographed wearing no panties several times this
Simpson for being vulgar. The man that may or may not have
murdered his former wife and her lover was set to profit from
a book called "If I did it", which talked about
what he would have done if he did commit the murder. This
may have won the award for the most distasteful book ever
published if it went to print!
Conner becomes miss wild USA. It was definitely a year of
bad girls in 2006. Miss USA nearly lost her crown for behaving
badly, but the New York real estate developer Donald Trump
forgave her. Tara Conner says she will now be the best Miss
W. Bush for not listening to the people. Bush has been
voted the greatest villain and the greatest saint for 2006
so he is both loved and hated. We think if he did more for
the environment and world peace, he may be taken off some
of the villain lists.
Lohan for her partying ways. After several much talked about
faintings, falling down stairs, and hospital admissions, the
actress has booked herself into Alcoholics Anonymous.
Gibson for falling off the wagon. A DUI charge and an
alleged anti-Semitic tirade upset the powerful Jews in the
entertainment industry who called for a boycott of the actor.
All has now been forgiven with the release of his new movie
"Apocalypto" which has been a hit.
Richie goes wild and gets very thin. It was a wild year for
the adopted daughter of Lionel Richie which included being
arrested for DUI (driving under the influence of alcohol).
She also reportedly weighs just 85 pounds.
Urban goes into rehab after marrying Nicole
Kidman. Not long after the "wedding of the year"
in Sydney, Australia, the country music star booked himself
into rehab for alcohol abuse.
Kinkade for "ritual
territory marking". His face may not be known to
many, but his paintings or prints hang on the walls of millions
of Americans. He dubs himself the "painter of light"
and is into patriotism and Christianity, but stands accused
of unchristian like behavior by owners of art galleries selling
