4. The GuidicesThese stars of Real Housewives of New Jersey made their state proud when they were indicted in July on an incredible 39 charges ranging from conspiring to commit mail and wire fraud, to bank and bankruptcy fraud and making false statements on loan applications. We’re not totally set with the legal jargon, but we do know that it means these reality stars could face 50 years in jail and a $1 million fine! As if that’s not bad enough, in November the couple were hit with TWO MORE fraud charges on their rap sheet, and Joe was cited for careless driving in a school zone. All in all, their lawyers are working overtime!
3. Amanda BynesWe hate to include it, but it feels weird leaving it out…The former Nickelodeon starlet made some serious headlines this year, and not exactly the good kind. The first major red flag came in the form of her puzzling tweets, in which she showed off her dramatic new fashion style and started beefs with Rihanna, Drake, and pretty much everyone we can think of. From there it got much worse. After a slew of traffic violations and driving-related offenses, the 27-year-old got into trouble with the law for allegedly dropping a bong (or “vase”) out the window of her Manhattan high-rise. There were some court appearances, but the final straw came when Bynes started a fire in the driveway of a random home in Thousand Oaks, CA. This event led to her arrest and she was and placed under a psychiatric hold when a doctor diagnosed her as suffering from bipolarity and schizophrenia. Click here for her complete saga, but we’re just glad she’s getting the help that she needs.
