Top 10 Celebrities You Love to Hate for 2010. Celebrity It’s “Tik Tok” on the clock for most of the stars who were voted onto the list of the Top 10 Celebrities You Love to Hate for 2010. You are calling for the end of most of their 15 minutes of fame, with many voters even noted they didn’t love to hate them, they just do. You can’t win ‘em all, so after hundreds of votes, here’s the list of the Top 10 Celebrities You Love to Hate for 2010.
Top 10 Celebrities You Love to Hate for 2010
10. Kristen Stewart
The “Twilight” star stole the heart of Taylor Lautner on-screen and Robert Pattinson both on-and-off screen, which is enough to hate any girl. But it’s usually her stuttering, tic-filled acting that gets under people’s skin.
9. Heidi Montag
Ten plastic surgeries and plenty of financial woes later, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt’s 15 minutes are definitely up. The first four episodes of the final season of “The Hills” with their presence after Pratt threatened to kill a producer, showing just how out of touch with reality and reality television they are.
8. Miley Cyrus
The hot pants-wearing, bong-smoking Miley Cyrus isn’t the girl we all fell in love with, leading many to think maybe she should be tamed.
7. Mel Gibson
Should have been George Cloony.
Apparently Mel Gibson’s racist, misogynist, hate-filled recordings were somehow less offensive than Ke$ha’s music.
5. Kate Gosselin
Well, somebody’s buying the tabloids with her on the cover. Between her stints on “Dancing with the Stars,” the now Jon-less “Kate Plus 8” and every other media she tries to infiltrate, people would be much happier if everything was minus Kate.
4. The Palins
Apparently TLC isn’t getting the memo, offering the Palins their own reality series (they also air “Kate Plus 8”). After Bristol’s “Dancing with the Stars” stint caused death threats, Willow made news for homophobic comments on Facebook, and Sarah’s laughable Palinisms, they’ve pretty much ensured they won’t be the First Family of anything.
3. Lady Gaga
Somewhere between soaking her performances in blood and wearing that meat dress, Gaga turned off just about everyone who’s not a self-proclaimed “little monster.” She’ll get a chance at redemption next year when she’s born again as an artist with her new album “Born This Way.”
2. Perez Hilton
How Perez Hilton manages to maintain his position as one of Hollywood’s Most Hated is beyond us, but it’s a testament to his mass un-appeal. After promising Ellen DeGeneres to stop bullying this year, let’s see how people take to the softer side of Perez.
1. The Kardashians
The First Family of reality television has built an empire based on nothing. Besides hit show after hit show on E!, Kim, Kourtney and Khloe have been busy branding their names on everything from diet pills to a failed credit card. Kim even recently added an appearance to open new bathrooms near Times Square as part of her media tour. Our readers find the Kardashians overexposed, overpaid, and overdone, and they’re the #1 celebrities they love to hate for 2010. Are we all just jealous? There may be that, too.
Kate Gosselin Responds On Rumored Kids’ Expulsion From School. Kate Gosselin is responding to the reports that two of her sextuplets have been expelled from school. The “Kate Plus 8″ star blames pressure and her divorce from Jon Gosselin as the culprits for her children’s suffering. Colin Thomas and Alexis Faith, two of the Gosselin sextuplets, were said to be expelled from their school after displaying consistent bad behavior. When asked by our source if the rumors were true, Kate answered, “Two of my children, no, are being tutored at home, with a teacher who is working closely with our kindergarten teachers in school, doing the identical curriculum.” She explained that the “pressure was getting to them. You have the divorce anger mixed in with that. The goal is to get them back into school as soon as possible.” Kate also denies the reports that her upcoming TLC show “Twist of Kate” has been canceled, saying, “We’re sort of still trying to shape it [into] what it needs to be and what is going to be fun. So no, not canceled.”
Kate Gosselin’s Kids Expelled From School For Having “Rage Issues”. Two of Kate Gosselin’s sextuplets have been expelled from their Pennsylvania private school. Collin and Alexis are now being home schooled after allegedly misbehaving at school. According to In Touch, the kids were expelled from the school for fighting with their classmates. A source said, “They’ve fought with their peers, called them nasty names and made fun of other kids. The things they are saying are not words they should know. They are learning them somewhere – but Jon [Gosselin, their dad] doesn’t know where.” All of the 6-year-old sextuplets are also said to be having “rage issues” linked to filming on their reality series “Kate Plus 8.” One of the girls was previously reported to be suspended from school for two weeks after hitting a classmate. A source added to the New York Post that Kate’s “number concern is protecting her children and is keeping this personal situation as a private matter that she works out with her kids.”
Jon Gosselin’s Tattoo Spells Girlfriend’s Name Wrong. Jon Gosselin’s attempt at wooing his new girlfriend may be a wasted effort. The erstwhile “Jon & Kate Plus 8″ star had Ellen Ross’ name in Korean tattooed on his back, but an expert says her name is spelled wrong. Last month, the father of 8 had a Korean dragon inked on his back, which supposed to symbolize his rebirth and change. He also added the names of his 8 kids with ex-wife Kate and his girlfriend Ellen’s name tattooed into the design. But Hyung-eun Min of the Korean Culture Service told Life & Style that the spelling of Ellen’s name is actually the Korean spelling of the male name Aaron or Aron. The names of his kids were correct, though. Ellen was reportedly behind the tattoo’s idea.
Pussycat Doll Nabs “DWTS” Mirror Ball Trophy. “Dancing with the Stars” has crowned its newest title holder. Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger managed to take home the highly coveted mirror ball trophy, beating sportscaster Erin Andrews and Olympian Evan Lysacek. Perhaps Scherzinger’s win wasn’t surprising in the least. She and pro partner Derek Hough almost always led the scoreboard in the past weeks, and she is a natural dancer, having lots of practice with her pop girl group. Lysacek and partner Anna Trebunskaya came in second place. The pair, like Scherzinger and Hough, also led the scoreboard numerous times. They nabbed 108 judges’ points before viewer votes were tallied. Coming in at third were Andrews and pro partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who got the highest points during their first dance of the week. Ousted contestants Pamela Anderson, Niecy Nash, Buzz Aldrin, and Kate Gosselin were all back to perform dance numbers, while Chad Ochocinco and pro partner Cheryl Burke cheered on the rest of the cast.
Lawyer Who Called Kate Gosselin “Shameless Self-Promoter” Fired By Jon. The lawyer who called Kate Gosselin a shameless self-promoter was fired by Jon Gosselin last week. According to the reality show dad, attorney Anthony List has no right to speak on his behalf because he is no longer his client. List recently told TMZ that Jon is moving forward with his “absentee mom” argument in court against Kate to gain custody of their eight kids. He said, “’Dancing with the Stars’ is just the tip of the iceberg for Kate, as surely there will be many other projects to take its place soon.” “She’s always promoting something… and most of the time it’s herself.” However, according to Jon, List is no longer his lawyer so his comments were unwarranted. He wrote on his Twitter, “Mr. Anthony List Sr., Esq. is not my representing attorney; I terminated him on April 15, 2010. He has no legal right to speak to the press or anyone on my behalf.” Kate, her attorneys and I are moving forward to work out things privately and amicably.”
Andrews survives, Doherty exits ‘Dancing’. Tampa’s Erin Andrews survived the first elimination round of “Dancing With the Stars” Tuesday night when former “Beverly Hills, 90210″ star Shannen Doherty came up short in the national voting. Doherty and professional dance partner Mark Ballas did a lively jive dance number on the Monday competition. The judges liked her performance and it appeared that low-scoring reality star Kate Gosselin or actress Pamela Anderson might be going home. Doherty had danced despite a leg injury. Andrews and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy remain in the top three of the couples in the judges’ voting behind favorites Nicole Scherzinger/Derek Hough and Evan Lysacek/Anna Trebunskaya. Andrews, who is negotiating for a new contract as a ESPN sideline reporter, has denied rumors that she and Chmerkovskiy are having a romance. The 31-year-old told ESPN Radio that the rumor is ridiculous. ” We are just dancing …We spend twenty-four hours with these people and it is just like, ‘Oh they are dating,’” she said.
ABC Announces “Dancing With The Stars” Lineup. What could a Pussycat doll, a former Baywatch babe and a reality television mom all have in common? All three will be dancing their way in hopes of winning the Mirror Ball trophy on the upcoming season of ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars.” The alphabet network revealed their lineup Monday night during the season finale of “The Bachelor” in hopes of gearing up some anticipation for everyone’s favorite dance reality show. Pamela Anderson, singer Nicole Scherzinger and TLC star Kate Gosselin are set to display their fancy footwork in front of millions of viewers every week. In addition, Twitter-happy NFL footballer Chad Ochocinco, “Beverly Hills 90210″ alumni and vixen Shannen Doherty and Olympic golden boy Evan Lysacek will all be appearing on the dancefloor in hopes of winning some extended face time on both the small screen and weekly covers on newsstands. One person who won’t be returning this season is Samantha Harris, who announced last month that she will be stepping down from her hosting duties alongside Tom Bergeron. Instead, former Bachelorette Melissa Rycroft will be replacing Harris as the new co-host.

A brief appearance in Long Beach illustrates the uncomfortable position of the mother and reality TV star. The reality star mom from “Jon & Kate Plus 8″ was accused in court by her estranged husband of withholding $33,000 from their joint bank account. Then, in a taped segment on Monday’s episode of the show — which is ending its run next month in the wake of the couple’s increasingly nasty divorce — Kate entertained the idea of becoming a cartoon character. That same night, she was holed up at Maria Shriver’s Women’s Conference in Long Beach, signing books for fans as security officials Continue reading →
Sorry, Sarah Palin. Nothing personal, President Obama. If politics was all the rage for costumes last Halloween, this year it’s out and pop culture is in, you betcha. Palin’s beehive has been replaced by “Twilight” vamps, Lady Gaga wigs, and, of course, sequin-heavy tributes to the late, great King of Pop. It’s time to go back to the future with totally awesome ’80s costumes in general and homages to pop icon Michael Jackson in particular. When darkness falls across the land Oct. 31, and the midnight hour is close at hand, it’s going to be “Thriller” time. Good luck finding one of Jackson’s trademark glitter gloves. “It’s all about the glove and the socks,” says Jackie Littlejohn, manager of the Spirit Halloween store in Milpitas. “And all of the popular stuff is gone, or almost gone.” Jackson is one of the biggest trends in costumes this year, alongside other celebs, from Madonna and Lady Gaga (go bottomless with a blond wig?) to Kate Gosselin (of “Jon & Kate Plus 8″ fame) whose hairstyle has been described as a reverse mullet. The spiky-blond Kate wig is cheekily dubbed “Eight Is Too Much.” “Michael Jackson is huge for kids. Every time we get those little red Thriller jackets in the store, boom, they’re gone,” says Kellie Hudson, owner of the Halloween Bootique at Oakridge Mall in San Jose, where many little boys also seemed to favor the classics — you know, “Toy Story,” “Transformers” and “Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” “It’s a nostalgia thing for parents who are children of the ’80s.” Jen Norcia, for one, is in the mood for a little moonwalk down memory lane. “I’m going ’80s for Halloween, with the big hair and everything. I just had my 20th high school reunion and I want to reminisce a little,” says the San Jose mom as she chased her 3-year-old son from one monster mask to another. “I tried to get my son Nick to be a mini-Michael Jackson this year but it was a no-go. He insists on Sonic the Hedgehog.” The recession may be one reason retro is back this year. The National Retail Federation estimates that Halloween spending will tumble 18 percent to $4.75 billion, down from $5.77 billion last year. Rummaging through the closet for a full-on ’80s ensemble is one way to bargain hunt. Shoulder pads? Check. Parachute pants? Gulp. Bet you wish you hung onto that Members Only jacket. “Costumes can seem pricey,” says Krysta Delfino, who works at Natasha’s Attic costume shop in San Jose. “A lot of people are looking to take a 20-year-old pair of leg warmers and pull it together as an ’80s costume.” Monsters remain huge, from the “Twilight” vampires (especially Dakota Fanning’s creeptastic red-eyed Jane) to those hipper-than-ever brain-eating hordes from “Zombieland.” “Freakin’ vampires, man,” says Delfino, who is planning to dress up as a Zombie pinup girl. —‰’Twilight’ is so in right now.” The popularity of ghouls and goblins might be one indication that folks are eager to banish their fears about reality with some quality escapism. “The recession is such a downer,” Delfino says. “People want to get their minds off of it and have some fun.” Indeed, our Halloween rituals are rooted in the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. Masks were worn to ward off demons and offerings were left on the doorstep to appease evil spirits. Throughout the ages, the holiday has been a way to brighten the deepening gloom of winter. These days, Halloween costume trends are also a snapshot of the zeitgeist. We dress up both as the icons we want to be (Megan Fox? Sienna Miller?) and the ones we don’t (Bernie Madoff? Balloon Boy?). Wish fulfillment rarely comes so cheap. “Halloween allows us to express some personal side of ourselves,” says Dan Vado, founder of San Jose’s SLG Publishing, who plans to be a devil. “Whatever it is you want to be or do, there is a place for it.”
While Jon Gosselin has been spotted out with more than one woman since splitting from his wife, Kate Gosselin is not ready for romance. “I am not yet divorced officially,” she told Larry King on CNN’s Larry King Live Tuesday when asked if she feels single. As for attracting potential suitors, Gosselin was clear that she’s “too busy” to date. “I’m lonely, but I’m very busy,” she said stoically. Addressing how the couple’s children – 9-year-old twins (Mady and Cara) and 5-year-old sextuplets (Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Joel, Alexis and Leah) – are handling the split, Gosselin said: “They understand the process [of divorce]. They’re working through it the same way that Jon and I are. They’re doing remarkably well.” Gosselin says that like any kids whose parents Continue reading →
