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.
East Coast peeps, we hope you’re safe, stocked up and dry. Hurricane Sandy’s been causing all kinds of a mess but we’re staying put and waiting for it to … blow over. This too shall pass, right? So, to keep you distracted and entertained at the same time, through the Frankenstorm, we thought we’d take a gander over at celebrityville and see what the word on Twitter is. Worked for us, because we found at least 10 H’wood tweets that made us crack up in different ways. For instance, while Ricky Gervais‘ tweet made us crack up laughing, Lindsay Lohan‘s made us crack out heads against a wall. And since we can’t banter with them in person, we still got some repartee to dish out. So, we’ll just do it the best way we can — right here!
1. Ricky Gervais: Now we’re calling Sandy “Kandy” now, thanks to you, Ricky. Repping the “K”!
2. Lindsay Lohan: Right, because it’s really not that serious, L.L? World, do not take disaster advice from L.L. EVER.
You might recall that aggressive voicemail rant Alec Baldwin left his daughter Ireland back in 2008? It’s been playing in your nightmares ever since? It involved the 30 Rock star calling his tweenage offspring a “pig,” a “daughter-of-a-bitch,” a “thoughtless pain in the ass” and, most insanely, “twelve or eleven or whatever”? Yeah, that’s the one. Just for reference, Ireland was in fact twelve at the time, and unlike every other 12-year-old on the planet, seems to have taken the name calling in stride. “The only problem with that voicemail was that people made it out to be a way bigger deal than it was,” Ireland explained to Page Six this week. “He’s said stuff like that before just because he’s frustrated. For me it was like, ‘OK, whatever.’ I called him back and I was like, ‘Sorry Dad, I didn’t have my phone.’ That was it.” At least, that would have been it if the voicemail hadn’t subsequently been leaked to the press. And if it wasn’t horrible to listen to.
On one hand, it’s easy to take angry arguments out of context. On the other hand, Alec has apparently said stuff like that before? To his child? Out loud? We love Jack Donaghey more than our own distant workaholic Irish Catholic fathers, but this is too much! Not that an Internet parody wouldn’t help take the edge off. “We almost did something funny on YouTube, of me calling him and yelling at him. We were just talking about it the other week,” Ireland said, adding, “I’ve always had a great relationship with my dad.” Would a self-made parody four years after the fact be genius, or just make the whole thing sadder? We need a Liz Lemon up in here to hash this whole thing out!

We’ve always been into Jack Donaghy’s “Daddy Bear” steez on 30 Rock, but please take a look at those photos. The picture of Alec Baldwin on the left was taken yesterday at the U.S. Open with his new wife Hilaria Thomas, the other a snapshot of Baldwin from the 30 Rock set…in 2008. The man is looking real good this summer, is basically what we’re getting at. Since we’ve already given Hilaria credit for getting Alec off Twitter back in June (a good idea considering the fact he seemed unable to stop escalating his paparazzi brawls/making confusing Trayvon Martin jokes), why not give this win to her too? Well-played, lady!
Baldwin also returned to the 30 Rock set today to work on his last season of being Tina Fey‘s boss, and looked equally fresh. Pay attention, celebrities! This is how you subtly whittle a few years off your face without turning into Mickey Rourke (minus the crazy hair, weird hat and Bane-sized back). Maybe all you guys need is a dye job and some deep moisturizing, rather than having your mug reworked into sexy fetus face? Just floating it out there…

It looks like two celebs, Alec Baldwin and Mel Gibson, who have continued to amuse us (and simultaneously terrify us) with their ridiculous public outbursts and angry rants may be teaming up together. No, this is not to plot a fight against anyone who tries to take a picture of these stars or delay their next epic film. (Though a showdown that involves both of these Hollywood tyrants could be pretty entertaining). Rather, Baldwin told Vanity Fair that he recently invited Gibson to be a guest on his biweekly WNYC podcast called “Here’s the Thing.” Baldwin claims that he wants Gibson on his podscast due to his success in the film industry, not because of his antics broadcasted in the media, “And the only thing I want to ask you about the travails in your life is: What did you learn?” Uh-huh.
In anticipation of the possible podcast, we have put together a list of some differences and similarities between these two Hollywood brawlers. They seem to share more than just their prominent acting careers. Check it out, and see if you can guess who’s who:
Different: One fantasizes about killing Harvey Levin, founder of TMZ.
Similar: Both have been caught on tape ranting angrily to a family member.
Different: One probably doesn’t believe that the Holocaust happened.
Different: One hates Alec Baldwin movies. Read more…
It was a busy weekend for Alec Baldwin! First he gets married Saturday at New York City’s St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral to his fiance Hilaria Thomas, in a ceremony attended by celebs like Tina Fey, Woody Allen and Billy Baldwin. Then this morning we find out that Alec…um…fantasizes about murdering TMZ’s head honcho in Vanity Fair. Subsequently Alec’s Twitter account is now gone! We’re not saying there is a clear connection between that sequence of events, but if there is…then good thinking, Hilaria! Way to start your life together off right!
“I wanted to stick a knife in him and gut him and kill him and I wanted him to die breathing his last breath looking into my eyes,” the 30 Rock star told VF about TMZ producer Harvey Levin as part of their August issue; Levin leaked the extremely unflattering voicemail in which Baldwin calls daughter Ireland a “pig.” Coming on the heels of his two recent paparazzi altercations, we are both unsurprised and horrified. Seeing as how Alec bowed out of his non-stop tweeting shortly after 1) getting married and 2) his humiliating comments became public, we’d like to think that the actor’s new bride is responsible for his current Twitter silence. Unlike Alec, she seems like the kind of woman who likes to maintain some shred of privacy:
Alec Baldwin, where do you find enough hours in the day for all this fighting? Less than two weeks after allegedly punching a paparazzo outside the New York City Marriage License Bureau, the 30 Rock star got into it with a photographer outside his Manhattan apartment. Sources close to Baldwin claim the paparazzi have been harassing people in the actor’s building recently; “‘Reporters’ are stalking outside my house, and following in their car. Only to harass and disturb. If only a meteor would hit that car…,” Alec tweeted yesterday. A man meteor! Tension between Alec and the paparazzi allegedly came to a head today, resulting in Baldwin grabbing a man’s arm and shouting while clutching a florescent stuffed animal under the other. You know, just to keep it fresh. You can’t make every paparazzi fight the same, or people will get megabored.
While Alec’s other June photog altercation ended with him comparing the paparazzi to Trayvon Martin (No, seriously. It’s sort of confusing.), Baldwin still had some bon mots this time around, allegedly snarling at the man, “I want you to shut the f—k up and get out of here,” “You little girl,” and the pièce de résistance, “I know you got raped by a priest or something.” Haha, oh Alec, you and your rape jokes! It’s simply too much. We simply cannot wait to hear about the July and August brawls!

After all that fighting with a paparazzo outside the marriage license bureau (and the fact he is, you know, wearing a wedding ring), Alec Baldwin is apparently still not married to fiance Hilaria Thomas. According to Celebuzz, the 30 Rock actor has a marriage license but allegedly has yet to lock it down. Considering Alec basically went to the mat with a photographer for his license, that’s a little…weird, isn’t? Then again, it wouldn’t be the first odd move Alec Baldwin has made, as demonstrated by our comprehensive list of the Top 7 Weirdest Alec Baldwin Moments we’ve assembled below. Long story short, we cut this guy a loooooot of slack in the oddball department. Maybe it’s the eyes? Check out Alec’s weirdest moments, and let us know what you think. It’s the eyes, isn’t it? Or the maybe the hair…?
Oh, man, Today producers, you’ve done it this time. Maybe. Alec Baldwin has been posting all morning about how the morning show had a crew camped outside his apartment building to tape a segment about his accused stalker, Genevieve Sabourin. And the latest one sounds like he’s directing his ire at the entire network, all but saying that he’s leaving 30 Rock:
Actually, Baldwin began tweeting about journalists at his place late last night: “Outside my apt, “journalists” from the Post camped out to talk to me about stalking. They camped out all day. Wait. Isn’t that…….?”
First, let us say, Tom Cruise is hilariously good at singing Bon Jovi’s “Wanted Dead or Alive” in the new Rock of Ages trailer. But that’s not what impressed us the most about this preview of the movie (in theaters June 15) and certainly not what made us fork over our dough to see the musical on Broadway, from the front row. Nor was the touching love story of smalltown kids just trying to live out their dreams in L.A., or the cautionary tale about how fame and fortune will destroy your soul. Nope. It is the impressive way in which this musical actually makes us nostalgic for the most embarrassing fashion and music trends of the late ’80s and early ’90s. The perms, the sweaty leather, the man makeup, the sappy ballads, the over-the-top guitar solos, the bras worn alone as perfectly acceptable tops — we might cringe with regret (or, for those who didn’t live through the era, gape in wonder) in any other setting, but Rock of Ages reminds us of how totally rad it was to look as trashy as possible and bang your head to the sounds of Motley Crue, Poison and Def Leppard. It was true with the unknown actors of the theatrical version, but it’s even more evident when we see it all played out by the all-star cast of Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, Mary J. Blige, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Paul Giamatti, Malin Akerman, Julianne Hough and newcomer Diego Boneta.
Without further ado, we present to you a countdown of the 20 most rock-and-roll looks from trailer #2.
