Britney’s Bad Luck
The pop princess had one of the most scandalous years of all, and it all started on Jan. 3, when the singer was taken to L.A.’s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and held for psychiatric evaluation. Soon after, she lost visitation rights with her sons and was put under the watchful eye of her father, Jamie, who became her conservator.
Mary-Kate Linked to Ledger’s Death
When a masseuse discovered Heath Ledger’s body on Jan. 22, she spent nearly 10 minutes making phone calls to Mary-Kate Olsen — before ever dialing 911. The Olsen twin refused to speak about her involvement, and rumors circulated that she requested immunity. Federal prosecutors decided not to issue a subpoena for her to testify.
Anne Hathaway’s Bad Boyfriend
Anne Hathaway’s longtime boyfriend, Raffaello Follieri, was taken into police custody in early April after allegedly bouncing a $215,000 check. The star split with the Italian real estate developer, whom she said was “the love of my life,” just hours before his arrest on charges of wire fraud and money laundering.
The Miley Cyrus Shoot
The Disney star caused a media frenzy when she appeared semi-topless in the June 2008 issue of Vanity Fair. She even told Us that she was “so embarrassed” by Annie Leibovitz’s photos. The news came shortly after Cyrus was criticized by parenting groups after photos showing her in a green bra surfaced online.
Jamie Lynn Spears Gives Birth
The teenage sister of Britney gave birth on June 19 to daughter Maddie. Jamie Lynn announced she was expecting a baby when she was only 16 years old. She and her boyfriend, Casey Aldridge, got engaged a few months later.
The Truth about Brangelina
In a December issue of Us Weekly, sources revealed how Angelina Jolie flirted with Brad Pitt — then married to Jennifer Aniston — by getting naked on set. The two actresses spoke out in interviews, and Aniston told Vogue she was bothered that Jolie felt the need to recount a detailed timeline of how she fell in love with Brad.
Out of the six listed above and knowing that two are related and get this…Spears’ mother was writing a book something about ‘Parenthood and how to Raise Children’ we felt that we would vote for Britney and Jamie’s miscapades for number one.
