We think it’s safe to say this year has been a drama-filled one, and it’s hard to believe that we’re only in August! Between scandalous political debates, cheating scandals and controversies, its hard to pin down the most scandalous! But if there’s something we all need to admit: it’s that all this drama whether advertised on social media or on the internet, helps to get closer to our colleagues and has been spicing up our girls night, do you agree? After all, there’s nothing more exciting than defending your favourite celebrity when discussing the latest gossip, and below are some highlights.
Let’s start with the most televised scandal of the year should we? You’ve guessed it, it’s the horrifying R. Kelly allegations. Earlier this year, and following the first allegations against the singer, a six-part documentary came out called Surviving R Kelly which exposed (in great details) all the accusations of kidnaping and sexual assaults. As you can imagine, R. Kelly has since lost a lot of fans, as well as respect from his friends and family.
On a livelier note, and probably not categorised as a scandal but yet still trending on Twitter was former President Barack Obama’s youngest daughter attending her senior prom in Washington D.C in a stunning black dress. The photos were posted by her date (who was her cousin) which the cute caption: “When your lil cousin take Sasha Obama to prom.” Adorable right? The tweet was however deleted shortly after but took no time to get viral, as you can imagine!
Now moving on to probably the most talked about drama of the year: the Khloe and Jordyn cheating scandal. You might remember that earlier this year, news broke that Khloe’s baby daddy Tristan Thompson and close family friend (and Kylie’s best friend) Jordyn Woods were spotted getting cozy at a party. This betrayal caused a lot of tension at the Jenner/Kardashian house and Khloe has since ended things with Tristan. The Kardashians even took it a bit further and used social media to shame Jordyn for her actions, and as you can imagine, the entire (and influential) family stood up for Khloe. But some magazines and websites also criticised the Kardashian sister for holding more grudges against Jordyn rather than the father of her child, Tristan.
Talk about scandal, I think Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman, and Full House mom Lori Loughlin take the crown for this one this year, as they were both indicted in a major college admissions scam. Both were charged with bribery to get their children into major universities and now have massive bills to pay. This is without a doubt the end of their career on TV!
And finally, the latest scandal that has taken over our social channel feeds is no other than: Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cryus’ break up. We’re big lovers of Miley’s music here at TWC and were sad to hear the beautiful couple were breaking up only after a few months of being married. Hemsworth posted a message on Instagram to squash the rumours and come clean. Turns out Liam was the bigger man as he wished Miley all the best, but Miley seems to have taken some holidays with Brody Jenner’s ex wife; Kaitlynn Carter, and is (according to the media) taking the breakup a bit more lightly. But then again, it’s hard to know what’s true in this case so all we can do is wish the two celebrities all the best!
