everywhere—It may be the first day of 2010, but we can't help but take one more look back at 2009's most interesting entertainment news.
There's a lot that's happened in celebrity news over the past 23 months, so here's your 2009 entertainment year in review.
Let's start on a good note, the biggest celebrity weddings. Khloe Kardashian wed Lakers star Lamar Odon in a lavish ceremony, conveniently documented by their reality show film crew! Claire Danes wed Hugh Dancy, and other celebs who tied the knot include Bruce Willis, Jaime Presley, Zoey Deschanel, Mark Wahlberg, Fergie and Josh Duhamel and Gisele and Tom Brady.
Of course in Hollywood they split almost as often as they get hitched. Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins dropped the bombshell just days ago that their 23 year relationship is over. Others that called it quits, Reese and Jake, Kate Hudson and Alex Rodriguez, Joe Jonas and Camilla and Madge and Guy Ritche.
And now the most shocking scandals. Jon and Kate Gosslin dragged every detail of their failing relationship out in the tabloids. Chris Brown pled guilty to felony assault charges for allegedly beating up then girlfriend Rihanna, Charlie Sheen allegedly pulled a knife on his wife, David Letterman fesed up to affairs with staffers when a blackmailer threatened to expose him, and speaking of affairs, do we even need to say his name? Tiger made the most headlines when his numerous supposed lovers came forward about their relationship with the golf super star, and the story is far from over.
Other shocking news? The surprising deaths, those that died before their time; Brittany Murphy, Natasha Richardson, DJ AM, Farah Fawcett and Patrick Swayze both lost their battles with cancer, and everyone can remember where they were when they heard Michael Jackson died. His memorial was broadcasted live across the globe and over a billion people worldwide watched as the biggest celebs said farewell to the King of Pop.
And if we've been in a recession, you wouldn't know it from the box office sales. The top three biggest box office hits were Transformers, Revenge of the Fallen with $400 Million, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince with $320 Million and Pixar's Up with $300 Million.
Let's hope for a great 2010!
