22 Questionable Things Celebrities Have Done So Far In 2018
Some crazy things happened in 2017. Scandals dominated the headlines and seemed to involved anybody and everybody in Hollywood, a hacker leaked a bunch of photos of Hollywood A-listers that took the internet by storm, and Johnny Depp turned into Jack Sparrow in real life and lost everything that he loves. We’re barely into the new year and we’ve already surpassed all of 2017 in celebrity drama. There’s so much brewing in the world of the Kardashians, as always. There’s also been news about controlling exes (we’re looking at you, Tom Cruise). There have been physical fists fights, ridiculous fashion statements, a wave of pregnancy rumors, and plenty of dumb celebrity one-liners.
We’ve seen some major celebrity events already this year like The Grammys, The Superbowl, and The Golden Globes, all which have yielded some brutally embarrassing moments for some celebrities (is anyone surprised that we are referring to Chrissy Teigen?). The truth is, we’re two months into the new year and we have more than enough fuel to last us the rest of 2018. Let’s dive into the dirt. Here are the top 24 dumbest things celebs have done (or been a part of) so far in 2018.
22. Kylie Jenner Tried To Lie To Us About Her Pregnancy
Back in September of 2017, Kylie Jenner was spotted out in L.A. with a baggie T-shirt on, which isn’t typical for her. In October, a handful of entertainment news sites ran a story saying that Kylie was expecting a child with boyfriend, Travis Scott. The Kardashians shamed the headlines and went live on their social media accounts to call it out as a fake story.
Kylie started a series of snaps that lead us to believe she was expecting. For example, snapping a photo of two phone cases, one baby pink and one baby blue, with a caption that read, “I’m thinkin’ blue.” From that moment on, Kylie, who usually never misses a moment to take the perfect selfie, stopped snapping full-body shots. Kylie was missing in the family holiday photos, which fuelled the rumors. Kris Jenner accidentally slipped up when she uploaded a picture of pyjama sets for all of her grandchildren. If you count them, there’s an extra baby set for Kylie’s little one.
Then, on February 1, Kylie announced her baby’s birth. She apologized to her fans for keeping them in the dark and stated she had to “prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress-free, and healthy way.” Still, was it really necessary for her to call her friends liars and blame the paparazzi for Photoshopping her? Nah.
21. Shaun White Calls Serious Allegations “Gossip” At This Year’s Olympics
After winning the gold medal in the men’s half-pipe, a very emotional Shaun White was approached by the press who said something that really ticked him off. The judges gave him a near perfect score, so Shaun expected to answer questions about that Olympic experience but they side-swiped him with a question targeting harassment allegations from the past. Shaun dismissed the allegations as “gossip” and asked them to focus on things that matter. “I’m here to talk about the Olympics,” said Shaun.
However, according to Christine Brennan of USA Today, everyone noticed that “Shaun White just called the awful allegations against him ‘gossip’ in a press conference where no woman journalist was called upon though several, including me, had their hand up the entire time.” As unbelievable as it was, his fan base hasn’t taken a hit at all.
20. Twista Harmed A Man For Being “Obnoxious”
This weekend, during the NBA All-Star events, the famous rapper Twista got into some trouble when leaving Michael Jordan’s party in Bel-Air. Around 1:30 a.m., Twista got on to a bus that was going to take him back to the parking lot when he heard a man who had too much to drink start to harass the passengers. At first, Twista brushed the man off as obnoxious and left it alone but then, the heckler started harassing the women on the bus, to which Twista felt the need to respond.
But he didn’t just respond, he attacked the man and that man wasn’t even fighting back. He was out of it and unresponsive and Twista just kept going. On-lookers described the scene as “extremely brutal” and the police were called. We can sympathize with a man who wants to protect women, but this? This was totally uncalled for.
19. Katie Holmes Was Finally Legally Allowed To Go Public With Jamie Foxx
We’ve all known about the relationship between Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx for awhile now, but we didn’t have any proof. They were never spotted out together, so there wasn’t any evidence to solidify their relationship to the public.
But when 2017 turned into 2018, the lovebirds emerged and we started seeing them everywhere together. At first, the story was framed that Katie and Jamie must just be ready now, but then information surfaced that taught us of how Tom Cruise had actually been the one behind the couple’s secrecy.
When Katie and Tom divorced, she signed a clause promising she wouldn’t embarrass Tom in any way. In that clause, she vowed she wouldn’t publicly date anyone for five years after the divorce finalized. That five years has passed and the “Tom Cruise Ban” has expired, hence, all the recent photos we’ve seen of Jamie and Katie.
18. Kim Kardashian Now Uses Louis Vuitton Trash Cans
Last month, on Kim Kardashian‘s Snapchat account, she posed with her… trash cans. Yup, that’s right. Apparently, it was dire for her to show her fans that she doesn’t use “regular” trash cans like us common folk but only the best of the best dispensers for waste, which are Louis Vuitton bins.
Kim is probably the first person to ever do something so… pointless, but no hate here. There were two types of responses over Snapchat and Twitter after Kim shared these photos. Some people must have thought, “Why are Kim Kardashian West’s trash cans dressed better than I am?” Others seemed to think, “There are children all over the world starving and Kim Kardashian has a Louis Vuitton trash cans.” (You have a point. That is sad.) Kim doesn’t care, though. She’s living her best life. She didn’t even respond to the criticism, which is totally out of character for her.
17. Paris Hilton’s Awkward Reaction To Chris Zylka’s Proposal
If you don’t already know, Paris Hilton got engaged this year to her long-time boyfriend, Chris Zylka. On top of a mountain at a ski resort in Aspen, Colorado, Zylka got down on one knee and pulled out the $2 million dollar, 20-carat, tear-drop shaped engagement ring and with a photographer/videographer ready, asked Paris to spend forever with him.
What was supposed to be a really sweet moment, got pretty awkward, as Paris didn’t seem to know how to react. She was also totally lacking emotion. She seemed to forget that Zylka was even there. She kept looking at her ring saying an expletive over and over again.
After fans saw the video online, people sympathized with and even pitied Zylka, who just walked away at the end of the video and left Paris to be alone with her ring. She did take to Instagram soon after to express how lucky she is… That should count for something, right?
16. The Dumbest Thing Kanye Has Ever Said To Kim (And It Was Via Email)
This one has got to be top three most ridiculous celebrity moves of 2018 thus far. Kim Kardashian has already made our list, and now, so has her husband, making them the dumbest acting celeb couple over this past couple of months. Kanye West did something so random and so lame that there are now memes in circulation online making fun of him for it. Last month, Kanye got sick of seeing photos of his wife in oversized sunglasses and impulsively shot her an email.
“[Kanye] sent me a whole email like, ‘You cannot wear big glasses anymore. It’s all about tiny little glasses,’” Kardashian confessed in an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. “He sent me, like, millions of ’90s photos with tiny little glasses like this.” So if you’ve wondered why Kim all of a sudden started wearing tiny sunglasses, there you have it.
15. Chrissy’s Name For Her New Baby And How She Feels About Meghan Markle
This will not be the last time that Chrissy Teigen is mentioned on this list but are you even shocked? She says some outrageous things that are usually funny but can sometimes be borderline inappropriate.
Chrissy appeared on The Ellen Show this month just to catch up and talk about how her pregnancy is coming along. Along the way, we found out some interesting things about Prince Harry‘s bride-to-be, Meghan Markle. Apparently, she and Chrissy were “suitcase girls” together on Deal or No Deal back in 2007.
Chrissy made a joke about how she was gypped. “I could’ve been Princess Harry. That should’ve been me.” We always take what Chrissy says with a grain of salt, which is why we didn’t trip when she said something to shock the whole audience during the taping of The Ellen Show. “I’m having a baby boy. I’m toying with the name D*ck Legend a lot. Can I say that?” The thing about Chrissy is, she’ll probably end up naming her son that just for laughs.
14. Cardi B Had Her People Spread Pregnancy Rumors About Her For Good PR
You’ve probably seen the pregnancy rumors in the tabloids and entertainment news sites saying that Cardi B is expecting a baby with her fiancé, Kiari Kendrell Cephus, also known as Offset from the rap group, Migos. If this was just speculation, it wouldn’t be noted here, but an individual from Cardi B’s team was confirmed to have been the one who tipped of TMZ with the news that she’s expecting (specifically 3-4 months along). So we’re all a bit confused.
Cardi is supposed to finish a new album by the summer and begin touring with Bruno Mars in September. If the rumors are true, her due date will be around August, which should put a damper on her plans. But maybe not?
The truth will come out at Coachella in April, where Cardi is due to perform. We’ll definitely be able to tell if there’s a bump by then and if she cancels? Well, there you have it. Many think that Cardi agreed to start the pregnancy rumors to keep her face in the tabloids as a way to keep the attention on her. That way, we’ll all be stalking her to see if the claims are true and her activity and following will increase. Sneaky, sneaky.
13. Kenya Moore Faked A Breakdown That Cost Her Her Job
On one of the recent episodes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kenya Moore threw a tantrum and stormed off the set. On this specific episode, the ladies were doing charity work and Kenya happened to make things about her. The scene, though intense, was apparently premeditated. RadarOnline reported that Kenya’s fit was planned because she didn’t want to sit for four hours and film.
“Kenya didn’t want to film for the three or four hours that all of the ladies were doing in Houston after doing hurricane relief,” said someone from the cast. That, and the fact that Kenya wouldn’t allow her husband, Marc Daly, to film for the show, led to her being fired from The Real Housewives of Atalanta. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the producers decided to hire her enemy, Kim Zolciak, to replace her. “Kim will be coming back as a full-time housewife and not just a friend,” reported Radar.
12. Tristan Thompson Partied With All Of Khloe Kardashian’s Ex-Boyfriends
This felt like a really dumb move but maybe there are reasons behind Tristan Thompson’s decision to party with his baby mama, Khloe Kardashian‘s, ex-lovers that we don’t understand. This past weekend, Tristan went to watch Kylie’s boyfriend (and baby daddy) Travis Scott perform at the Remy Martin Party at Avenue.
While there, he met up with French Montana (who dated Khloe from 2013 to 2014) and James Harden (who dated Khloe from 2015-2016). The event they attended was held in honor of the NBA All-Star Weekend. The three men did not just share a polite “hello.” The trio hung out most of the night, sharing laughs and probably sharing memories about Khloe. Khloe said it herself, she’s extra emotional these days. She probably had a lot to say when she saw the headlines following the event. Tristan doesn’t seem like the type to turn his back on his woman. We’re sure he was just being nice.
11. Tiffany Haddish Probably Shouldn’t Have Said That
Last week, the tabloids and entertainment news sites exploded with stories of a crazy interaction Beyonce once had with an actress who tried to get fresh with her husband, Jay Z. The actress and comedian, Tiffany Haddish, shared all the juicy details in an interview with TV One’s UNCENSORED. It all started when Beyonce introduced herself to Haddish (who completely freaked out, by the way). The two exchanged compliments and took a selfie together. Beyonce walked away but then something popped off.
“I was talking to Jay Z for a little bit and there was this other actress that was there, who was also talking to Jay Z,” Haddish told Harpers Baazar. “She touched Jay Z’s chest and Beyonce came walking up [angrily].’”
Beyonce approached the unknown actress with a fierceness and body language that warned the woman she had seconds to back off. “The way she walked up on her was like, ‘Get your hand off my man’s chest,’” said Haddish. That actress’s identity hasn’t been revealed, but according to Haddish, it soon will. “I ain’t gonna say nothin’ yet, but you gonna know.”
10. 3 Dumb Things Lindsay Lohan Said In The Past 2 Months
Lindsay Lohan has done some truly stupid things the past handful of years and has said some even dumber things. Here are the top three dumb Lohan quotes of 2018. She defended Harvey Weinstein on her Instagram account and then deleted it. In the trashed post, Lohan said, “Hi. I’m in Dubai. I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now. I don’t think it’s right what’s going on. I think Georgina needs to take a stand and be there for her husband. He’s never harmed me or did anything to me. We’ve done several movies together. I think everyone needs to stop. I think it’s wrong. So, stand up.” You might not have been harassed, Lindsay, but many women were. Stand down.
She also decided to comment on Kim Kardashian‘s Instagram photo where she wore her hair in “Bo West” braids. Lohan commented on the photo saying, “I’m confused,” to which Kim replied with, “You know what’s confusing…you’re sudden foreign accent.” Ouch. The next one isn’t one quote but eight. Lindsay Lohan put out a video of her reenacting her eight favorite quotes from Mean Girls and it was really hard to watch.
9. Kris Jenner Face-Planted And Broke Chrissy Teigen’s Table During The Super Bowl
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend threw a Superbowl party last month. Close pals, Kris Jenner, and her daughters were on the guest list. We can’t confirm how much Kris had to drink but she ended up face-planting into Chrissy and John’s couch and then fell over onto a wooden table which she broke.
“If anyone’s in the market for a slightly-used table, the Kris Jenner actually just fell into it,” Chrissy said on her Snapchat. Kris tried to make light of the accident by saying, “Very extremely valuable right now. If anybody wants to make a bid on this, we’re willing to let it go.”
“Kris, what happened over here?” asked Chrissy. “Well, this is where I did a faceplant,” said Kris as she laughed. Sure enough, there was makeup smeared all over the couch where she landed. How embarrassing. However, we are sure the Legends’ table is easily replaceable.
8. Selena Gomez Was Checked Into A Facility And We Didn’t Know it
This month, Selena Gomez spent two weeks in a luxury rehab center called Privé-Swiss in Connecticut. A source told Page Six that Selena was enrolled in a program “designed for those individuals needing a retreat from high profile, ‘always on’ lifestyles.”
This is Selena’s third round of treatment and it’s always for the same thing: depression. She opened up a bit to Vogue back in March, saying that her “self-esteem was shot. I was depressed and anxious. I started to have panic attacks right before getting onstage, or right after. Basically, I felt I wasn’t good enough, wasn’t capable.”
Selena has been through a lot lately. She recently had a kidney transplant and got back together with Justin Bieber, which could have been enough to send her back to rehab, because apparently, her mom is extremely upset with her about it.
7. Chrissy Teigen Got Weird With Beyonce At The Grammys
So this is going to make you laugh. We love Chrissy, don’t we? In an interview on The Tonight Show, Chrissy Teigen confessed to totally embarrassing herself in front of Beyonce at The Grammys.
“There’s nobody like seeing Beyoncé in person,” Teigen opened. “It’s just so incredible. The aura that comes around her, I mean, she just emits this aura that’s spectacular, and on our way out, I was like, ‘We have to say something, right?’ And I took both her hands and — I don’t do this for anybody; it was very weird — and John’s like, ‘What the hell are you doing?’ And I took her hands, and I got down on my knees, and I was like, ‘Sorry to bother you, my queen.’ Like, who says that? It was like, ‘M’lady,’ like, what do you even — like, who am I? And John’s like bro-fiving with Jay Z. And I’m like, ‘Oh, my lord.’ It was so weird…. No, [I’m] not [used to seeing to] her though, no no no.” We are sure Beyonce found it adorable, Chrissy.
6. Bella Hadid Started To Date Her BFF’s Ex
Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner have been the best of friends since high school. They rarely fight and they rarely party without one another. They’re pretty much joined at the hip. That’s why Bella’s new choice for romance has left us confused. Her mother, Yolanda Hadid, told Entertainment Tonight that Bella is off the market and that her new man is a “very private person.”
Bella wants to keep things as low-key as possible for as long as possible, but hopefully, she’s clued at least one person in: Kendall. The model is seeing Jordan Clarkson, a point guard for the Los Angeles Lakers. Clarkson happens to be Kendall’s ex-boyfriend.
How that’s going to play out? We don’t yet know, but it seems like a shady move on Bella’s part. Dating your best friend’s ex-boyfriend is kind of a breach of the girl code.
5. Margot Robbie’s Encounter With Obama On Her Honeymoon
Actress and producer Margot Robbie shared a hilarious story on The Ellen Show a couple weeks ago. Ellen asked Margot to tell the story of how she met her new husband. She was reluctant but eventually caved. So the story goes, Margot and her husband, Tom Ackerley, were on their honeymoon in a shack on a beach in Tahiti when they decided to indulge in a luxury hotel for a night. They hadn’t seen their reflection in days but they knew they just had to make it there and they’d be able to freshen up.
The couple put on gym clothes they had with them, but apparently, Ackerley’s shorts were a bit.. .see-through. “I was like, ‘Babe, you cannot wear those shorts… I can see everything,” Margot told Ellen. To which her husband responded with, “Oh, c’mon. Who are we going to run into?” Some very, very important people, it turned out. “The newlyweds ran into DeGeneres and her wife, Portia de Rossi, as well as the former president of the United States, Barack Obama, who happened to be at the resort writing his book,” reported The Rolling Stone. At one point Ellen looked over at Ackerley, who was trying to cover his parts with a towel and said, “Boy, those were the wrong shorts to wear today.” How embarrassing.
4. Shia LaBeouf Tried To Bring Crocs Back And Failed
Shia LaBeouf has been criticized for his “homeless look” in the past but it wore on all of us and started becoming a sense of fashion that people copied. He’s now known as a fashion icon, with tens of thousands of people ready and waiting at all times to see what Shia will put on for his public appearances.
Last month, Shia was photographed a handful of times wearing a controversial item: crocs. Crocs have always been mocked and have never been accepted as “cool.” In fact, kids who grew up wearing crocs were labeled as “the weirdos.”
Shia doesn’t have a problem with being weird though and he wishes more of us would stop caring so much as well. He brought back Crocs at the start of the new year and seems to have a pair in every color. Will they catch on as a fashion trend though? Well, if they haven’t ever, then probably not, but way to stand out, Shia.
3. Mariah Carey Stole Meryl Streep’s Seat At The Golden Globes And Her Reaction Was Classic
Meryl Streep had a hilarious response to having her seat stolen, which she recounted during an interview with Jimmy Kimmel. During this year’s Golden Globes, Mariah Carey was mingling during a break and wandered to the nearest available seat (which was right next to Steven Spielberg) and sat down.
“Got caught mingling on the way to the loo during a commercial break. Took the first seat available, happens to be right next to Steven Spielberg. Cut to next commercial break, guess who comes back to her seat?” Mariah Carey tweeted.
Meryl Streep’s reaction? “You can take my seat anytime.” How gracious of her. But when interviewed about the mishap, her words came out quite differently. We are sure Mariah has learned her lesson. Next time, pick up on the clues around you. Meryl was sitting with the cast of her new film, The Post.
2. The Super Bowl Selfie Kid And Hilarious Justin Timberlake Meme
We are sure you caught this hilarious moment between Justin Timberlake and a member of the crowd during this year’s Super Bowl halftime show at Minneapolis’s U.S. Bank Stadium. When Justin Timberlake started walking through the crowd while performing, 13-year-old Ryan McKenna was among the few he stopped and made contact with.
When Justin came around, McKenna pulled out his camera to record but then the singer got right in the kid’s face and McKenna didn’t even acknowledge him. He claims he was trying to launch his camera app. The internet had fun creating memes about the kid.
1. Let’s Not Forget That Awkward Calvin Klein Ad The Kardashians Did
The Kardashian sisters and Kylie and Kendall are the faces of Calvin Klien’s most recent campaign titled, #MyCalvins. In the photos, the girls mostly model the 2018 spring line, but if you notice, there seems to be something out of place.
Glance over at Kylie. Her belly is totally covered and Khloe’s arm is covering it. Her sisters lay alluringly in Calvin Klein bras and underwear, while Kylie hid under a blanket. But maybe it’s just one photo, right? Wrong. Most of the photos look like that.
We could’ve used these ads alone to determine that Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy rumors were true. So why did she agree to the campaign if she was trying to stay under the radar? It was probably too good of a paycheck it pass up. Also, the photos are heavily airbrushed. If Calvin Klein wants to target the average woman to buy from them, the photos should probably appeal to those women, instead of repulse them.
