Let’s start at #5.
#5 – Critics Rip Lindsay Lohan for Elizabeth Taylor Portrayal – Lindsay’s Lohan‘s performance as Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime’s Liz & Dick is getting buzz for all the wrong reasons. Reviews for the biopic range from mixed to brutal. The Hollywood Reporter said, “Lohan is woeful as Taylor from start to finish.” Liz & Dick airs Nov. 25 on Lifetime.
#4 – Paris Hilton Receives Backlash in the Middle East – Paris Hilton is catching backlash in Saudia Arabia for opening a new store there for her handbags and accessories line. Some Muslims say they are insulted that Paris would open the store in, Mecca, the holiest city in Islam.
Who else made the list?
#3 – Wendy Williams To Seal: ‘You Need Half!’ – Heidi Klum continues to be under fire following her admission that she’s in love with her family’s bodyguard, whom she began dating shortly after splitting with husband Seal. Talk show host, Wendy Williams, had some advice for Seal, “This is how you get back at her, Seal. You don’t let the finances go with this divorce. I don’t know how much you’re worth, but she’s worth more. You need half!”
#2 – Nicki Minaj Strikes Back at Mariah Carey – Nicki Minaj is going after her nemesis and fellow American Idol judge, Mariah Carey, the best way she knows how… in a song. In her new song, “Hell Yeah,” Minaj not so subtly addresses her new job on Idol and alleged feud with Mariah singing, “okay, I’ll take it / sign on the dotted line / but I’m quick to check a bitch if she outta line.” Burn.
#1 – Kristen Stewart Back on Top – Kristen Stewart’s career looked to be in jeopardy just this summer, but the actress seems to be back on top with Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 ruling the box office. Now, reports are saying that Stewart may return for a Snow White sequel, which is a complete turnaround from a few months ago when the actress was allegedly dropped from the franchise amidst the cheating scandal with married director, Rupert Sanders. It looks like it will be Rupert who is left out of the series moving forward.
