The holidays are a time to celebrate goodwill for all human kind. And that’s cool and all, but that stuff gets sort of old after a while. So now let’s take a minute and take a look at all famous folks who didn’t get the peace and harmony memo! We’ve assembled our list of the top 20 most brutal celebrity beat-downs of 2012. Join us in a chant of “Fight fight fight!” and check it out!
20. Rita Ora vs. Rob Kardashian: Rita Whora’s Revenge
Rob Kardashian didn’t handle his heartbreak all that great following his split with Rita Ora. Instead of posting passive aggressive Facebook statuses like the rest of us, he went on an all-out Twitter assault against his former flame, claiming that she cheated on him with 20 dudes, and coining the obvious pun, “Rita Whora,” which became a trending topic soon after. #Revenge? #SmallVictories
Stitches required: Just 1 for Rob’s broken heart.
Taylor Swift is holding hands with Harry Styles of One Direction, Lindsay Lohan is partying down and stealing the sweatshirt of Max George from The Wanted. Boy bands are back in a big way, and they’re stealing some of the brightest lights in tinsel town! But then again, who could blame them with their cool hair and cool clothes and…other cool guys with cool hair and cool clothes around them. Gah, sometimes is really does pay to travel in groups!
Tay and Lilo are definitely not the first famous ladies who have been swayed by the charms of a boy-bander. And chances are high that they won’t be the last either! Sure, everyone knows about Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, but remember that time he hooked up with Jenna Dewan? They obviously didn’t last, but we guess she made out ok in the end by marrying Channing Tatum and all. Before her punch-filled love triangle, Halle Berry stepped out with New Kid on the Block Danny Wood. Joe Jonas can count Camilla Belle and Taylor Swift among his suitors, whereas Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus preferred his brother Nick. Head down to the gallery below to see the boy-band hookups that you totally forgot about!

Model and donk queen Coco posts dozens upon dozens of scandalous booty pics to Twitter every second (slight exaggeration), and her husband Ice-T is totally cool with it. But when photos of her getting uncomfortably close to another man are posted: Look out! Ice has officially thawed into a very pissed off dude. It all started on Saturday when rap impresario AP9 posted pics to his Instagram of himself at a nightclub getting cozy with Coco. The images have since been deleted (along with the rest of his Instagram account) but they showed the two cuddling, nuzzling and giving each other pecks on the cheek and neck.
Coco’s first reaction to the photos was just laugh it off. “Woke up to people in a panic about some pics,” she wrote to her Twitter followers. “Please guys, I’m happily married. Sometimes fans and friends take silly pics. It’s harmless. #RELAX.” But Ice did not relax, and posted a series of angry tweets giving his views on the situation. “Don’t get it twisted, I’m not happy about this s—. Most of ]the pictures] are disrespectful and in bad taste. She’s made me look and feel like s—. I say this on Twitter because there’s no way to avoid the obvious misconduct of a married couple.”
Coco owned up to her mistake soon after. “Ice is right, the pics I took with this man were in poor taste & I disrespected my husband however the pics were the only thing that happened,” she insisted. “I feel so sad,the bottom line is I love Ice & I can understand why he’s upset theres no excuse for my actions. I’m so sorry baby & to evryone.” The storm seems to have blown over, and Ice even went so far as to delete his tweets regarding the subject. “I said my part. No need to promote the situation,” he explained when asked why he had done so.
We know they’ll pull through, because they’re pretty much the cutest duo of all time. Head down to the gallery below to see our favorite photos of our favorite couple!

Lindsay Lohan’s been having all kinds of fun with the boys from The Wanted in the past week, and we’re not exactly sure if that’s a good thing for the troubled star. “She can party nearly as hard as we can,” singer Max George, with whom she’s gotten particularly close, told Us Weekly after the group performed at Jingle Ball this week. “We’re probably not the best influences.”
Are they? On the one hand, it was rumored that the fight that resulted in Lindsay’s arrest two weeks ago actually started over George, that seems like a negative in their column. On the other hand, the whole time she was following the British group around from Philly to Boston and back to New York, she didn’t get into a single hit-and-run or assault!
Lately Rihanna’s life has been like a soap opera, except with more nudity. A lot more nudity. Usually the nudity occurs when we least expect it. So in a sense it’s more like a porno soap opera, but with a really awesome soundtrack fulled with Riri hits. Glad we cleared that all up. In the latest episode of her on-going saga, the singer went off at Chris Brown on Twitter over the weekend, allegedly for hanging out with his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran.
Rihanna and Brown had been hanging out in Germany for Ri’s appearance on the television program Wetten, dass…? and all was swell. In fact, there was even rumors that they would attend the Grammy Awards together as a couple in February, four years after their infamous post-Grammy feud. But then Chris flew to Paris and was reportedly joined by his ex Karrueche. This apparently didn’t sit well with Rihanna, who fired off a series of angry tweets that seemed very much directed to her intimate man-friend.
The lady can be famously brutal on twitter, and she definitely didn’t hold back for Brown. “Goodbye muthaf—– #takeoff,” she wrote, followed by a picture reading “Claps for the basic b——,” that she captioned “Round of applause.” Then she finished up with one more parting shot, “You give, you get, then you give it the f— back.” Trouble in paradise or a lover’s spat? Time will tell.
Stop whatever you’re doing. It means nothing now. We just learned that Betty White is going to be alone for Christmas, and in doing so learned how truly we as a collective have failed. The Hot In Cleveland actress was chatting with People about her golden retriever Pontiac this week at an anniversary part for L.A.’s Love and Leash animal charity. “He had little growths on his leg and he had to have it removed, so he had to wear one of those plastic collars so he wouldn’t take his stitches out,” Betty said about her pup. “Well, he got it off today and he’s a happy Ponty tonight!” Sweet, charming, adorable: everything we’ve come to expect from a Betty White anecdote. And then.
Then the former Golden Girl says this: “He’s my family. It’s just the two of us for Christmas because I’m alone, and so we just have a cozy day all day. We look forward to that all year.” NOOOOOOOOO! This is unacceptable, people. We cannot accept this. How did we as a species let this happen? There is not a family alive who wouldn’t want Betty White at their holiday party! If 90-year-old Betty White is alone on Christmas, then that is inevitably what will happen to all of us! We will personally pick Betty up in a horse-drawn sleigh and take her across America to have hot chocolate under the Rockefeller Christmas tree if if need be. We’ll all take shifts driving. Steering? Do you drive or steer a horse-drawn sleigh? Never mind! We’ll ask the rental guy when we make reservations.

Jacintha Saldanha, a nurse working as a receptionist at King Edward VII Hospital, where a pregnant Kate Middleton was recovering from extreme morning sickness, was found dead this morning, and police suspect suicide, the Daily Mail reports. Saldanha was apparently the receptionist who fell for the prank call made earlier this week by Australian radio DJs, impersonating Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles to get intel on the Duchess’ health.
“Jacintha has worked at the King Edward VII Hospital for more than four years. She was an excellent nurse and well respected and popular with all over her colleagues,” a statement from the hospital said of the mother of two, who was found unconscious at a residence near the hospital and could not be revived. “We can confirm that Jacintha was recently the victim of a hoax call to the hospital. The hospital had been supporting her throughout this difficult time.”
Well, trading barbs on Twitter and spilling stories about death threats and eating disorders to the tabs hasn’t been doing much to boost the reputations of either Brandi Glanville or LeAnn Rimes — not to mention the kind of lasting damage this is going to have on Glanville and Eddie Cibrian’s kids. So it’s about time LeAnn tried something completely different: Winning this war through kindness and compassion. Or something like that.
The country singer recently sat down with Giuliana Rancic for E! Special: LeAnn Rimes, which will air on Sunday, and spoke in a very different tone than her acerbic tweets have expressed. In an excerpt of the interview posted last night, Rimes talks about the aftermath of meeting and falling in love with Cibrian on the set of a movie in 2009, when both were married to other people.
“I wish I handled it differently because I wish I could have been better for me, for Brandi, for Dean [Sheremet, her ex-husband], for Eddie and for everyone else,” she says, as soothing spa-like music plays in the background. “I know, in this situation, it’s going to take some time. All I wish is that everyone that was hurt, that we hurt, that I hurt, can be happy.”
Congrats to Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady! The supermodel and QB took the non-tabloid, low-key approach to announcing the latest addition to their family, baby girl Vivian Lake, who was born on Wednesday.
“We feel so lucky to have been able to experience the miracle of birth once again and are forever grateful for the opportunity to be the parents of another little angel,” the couple announced on Gisele’s Facebook. “Vivian Lake was born at home on December 5. She is healthy and full of life. Thank you all for your support and well wishes. We wish you and your families many blessings.”
We are now immediately wondering whether little Vivian will grow up a tomboy — what with her football-player dad and two older brothers, 5-year-old Jack (Brady’s son with Bridget Moynahan) and Benjamin, who turns 3 on Saturday. Or will she follow mom’s footsteps onto the catwalk? No rush, little one! Enjoy the best of all worlds.
Contrary to the typical patterns of celebrity parents these days, who document their pregnancies with tabloid announcements and nonstop Twitpics and Instagrams, Bunchen and Brady never publicly acknowledged that they were expecting. Instead, the Brazilian beauty was content to be photographed with her ever-growing bump and a knowing smile. Kinda refreshing, no?

So, for better or worse, this is happening. Taylor Swift and Harry Styles are an item and that keening sound you hear is poor Conor Kennedy wailing in a corner. Haylor’s latest bout of PDA — no, no kissing yet — was when they were photographed last night, holding hands while leaving the Crosby Hotel, as you can see above. This follows their Central Park Zoo date and their possible walk of shame, all of which went down just a couple of days ago. We have thoughts about this.
1. Harry’s pants are really, really tight.
2. Is it just us or are they color coordinating already?
3. Taylor Swift should officially be named as the latest “It Player” in town.
4. Are we allowed to call someone who is 22 a cougar? This is her second younger man successively.
5. Taylor’s probably already got break-up lyrics planned in time for them splitting up.
6. When did we turn so cynical about young love? But seriously … this.
7. *cough* publicity set-up *cough*
8. How does this woman always have the best shoes? Oh right, because she’s young, famous and rich.
9. Whose hair is shinier: his or hers?
10. Their publicists are probably cracking open a bottle of Pinot as we type, toasting, “Mission accomplished.”
