The 45 Biggest Celebrity Breakups Of 2011

Love never dies, but it sure took a battering this year! Celebrity couples of every age and stripe dropped like flies in 2011! From long-term unions like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, all the way down to the ones that can be measured in a television season (*cough* Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries *cough*), Hollywood could have used a giant couples’ therapy session. There were affairs, secret children, super fights, Twitter drama, ugly court cases and sometimes all of those combined. For these couples it wasn’t domestic bliss but domestic blitz! But don’t feel bad if you’ve made the list, guys. Just think of it as a giant singles ad. (You’re welcome!)

As the great philosopher Pat Benatar once said, “Love is a battlefield.” Check out some of this year’s casualties of Cupid in the gallery below. It’s truly a star-studded cast, with Marc Anthony and J.Lo, George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis, Demi and Ashton and oh so many more. Pick up your crazy hearts and try again in ’12, folks!

The 30 Cutest Couples Of 2011 *That Aren’t Robsten

We’re gonna level with you, dear readers. Here at the FABLife, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson will get our vote for the cutest couple every year until the end of time. That’s just the way it goes! So, to make it fair for all of the other adorable love birds out there, we’ve taken them out of the competition. But we’ve made Robsten the gold standard by which we measure and rank the rest of the sweethearts! So please Twihards, don’t send us angry letters.

Sure, 2011 was largely seen as the Year of the Breakup. That doesn’t mean love didn’t flourish! We’ve asked stars who they think should earn the title of “Cutest Couple 2k11,” and their answers ranged from the predicable, to the, err … not so predictable. Tehmina Sunny and Amadou Ly both share our Robsten 4Lyfe sentiments, whereas David Cook and Chelsea Rendon were more Selena Gomez/Justin Bieber people.  Roots drummer Questlove was pumped that puppet pals Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy got back together in the Muppets reboot, while Robin Thicke felt that Charlie Sheen and his nose candy made the perfect duo. Err, adorable, right? Watch the vid to see what other celebs had to say!

Now that you’ve heard their views, check out our official TFL Cutest Couples list in the gallery below! Agree, disagree? Let us know in the comments!

Rihanna’s 30 Hottest Pants-Free Looks Of 2011

2011 will be forever known as the year that Rihanna officially shunned pants. We’ve already brought you a pantsless Rihanna retrospective, but to be honest we still had way too many super hot pants-free pix stocked up. And these are just from this year alone! And because the holidays are a time for giving, we’ve decided to share Riri’s 30 hottest pants-free looks of 2011!

It’s been an amazing year for Rihanna, and it’s even more incredible to think of all the stuff she did without bothering to cover up. We all have nightmares about being pantsless in public, but Rihanna does more without wearing pants than most people do in their entire lives. Allow us to demonstrate with our handy timeline…

Rihanna’s Year Without Pants

January

Rihanna set the tone for the coming year with an interview for British GQ Magazine, in which the singer addresses her haters. “People think I’m overly sexy,” she said. “It bothers them for some reason. Girls don’t like to see other girls dressed sexy.”

So in defiance, she posed pantless on the cover! But that was just the beginning…

Did Justin Timberlake Get Engaged To Jessica Biel?

Whoa now! Last we checked in with Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, they were cordial ex’s who occasionally went on friendly bike rides together. Now reports are swirling that the ex-couple are now engaged! The Wyoming-area Tayloe Piggot Jewelry claims that JT popped the question to his on-again-off-again-apparently-on-again girlfriend at The Amangani, an upscale resort. “Word on the street is that Justin Timberlake proposed to Jessica Biel at the Amangani last night,” the jewelers posted on their Facebook. “We’re picking out post-engagement presents for them just in case they come in! Trying to play it cool.”

New York PR agent Kyle Schaffler is adding fuel to the marriage flames. “I love that no media outlets know about the Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel engagement,” he tweeted. “Benefits of working in PR.” However, he says that it all went down at a different hotel, the equally swanky Jackson. But so far no one even remotely close to the pair have publicly commented. Which makes us wonder if the tales of a secret engagement are true, or just one big advertisement for Tayloe Piggot Jewlery and PR dude Kyle Schaffler. We’ll keep you posted.

Gerard Butler Cheats Death After Surfing Scare

Action hero Gerard Butler was nearly taken down for out for good this weekend when things went awry while surfing. The actor was filming a scene for his upcoming Of Men and Mavericks in California’s Half Moon Bay when a dangerous surf break knocked him off his board and pinned him underwater. The Beach Boys never warned us about this! Gerard was dragged across the rocky sea floor before a jet-ski riding patrol-man was able to rescue him.

It could have been a scary case of art imitating life, as Of Men and Mavericks chronicles the story of sufer Jay Moriarty, who died at sea in 2001. But luckily Gerard escaped the same fate, and was released from the hospital with no serious injuries. Gerard’s surf coach Zach Wormhoudt says that the waves were a lot to handle, and not just for the rookie! ”It was intense for myself, and I’ve been through a lot out there,” he admitted to the Associated Press. Don’t back down from that wave, Gerard!

20 Photos Of Melissa McCarthy Not Giving A Sh*t

Well, the Golden Globe nominations were announced, and I’m starting to believe the “Foreign Press Association” is actually just Yakov Smirnoff sitting alone in a room with an old TV Guide and erasable pen and randomly making some picks. (This would explain why “What A Country!” gets nominated for Best Drama every year.)

That’s because while many well-deserved people and projects got nominated (Midnight In Paris, Bryan Cranston, … Rango), there were also plenty of plainly obvious snubs. As Dan Hopper pointed out this morning, Breaking Bad was snubbed for a nomination while Boss, a show starring Kelsey Grammer in his blue X-Men suit, managed to make the cut.

Of all the snubs, though, one stings the most: The absence of Melissa McCarthy getting a nod for her brilliant turn in Bridesmaids. McCarthy made the movie (after the Goddess Wiig), and it was one of the biggest moneymakers of the year.

No matter though. Because if there’s one thing we know about Melissa McCarthy, it’s that she doesn’t give a sh******t about this. Here are 20 photos proving this point.

Cameron Diaz Adds Diddy To Her List Of Really Random Hookups

There really is something about Cameron Diaz. The lovely leggy blonde has had dozens of leading men in her nearly 20 years as a film star, but she’s had almost as many in her personal life too! Cam has been romantically linked to such diverse (some would say “random”) dudes as Justin Timberlake, baseballer Alex Rodriguez, and even self-proclaimed Mind Freak, Criss Angel. But now it looks like she can add Diddy to her list of snuggle buddies.

Eyewitnesses told the New York Post that she and Diddy were mackin’ it at at the Dream Downtown Hotel on Saturday night. It was apparently after 1 a.m. when Diddy arrived at her table, and soon the bottles of Ciroc started flowing. “They were kissing and making out,” and being “very affectionate” as they danced before leaving together in the wee hours of the morning, the source said. Despite this, reps for both stars claim that the meeting was purely platonic. “They just friends,” said Diddy’s publicist, while Diaz’s agent insists that they were simply discussing a movie project. Sure…

Check out more guys who have “discussed movie projects” with Cameron Diaz in the gallery below!
