THG is counting down the 100 Hottest Bikini Bodies of 2012!
For months, we’ve been paying tribute to the hottest celebs with bikini photos galore, and at long last, we’ve finally arrived at this year’s winner: Kate Upton!
Really, after the year she had, was there any other pick?
Kim Kardashian bikini photos came in second. A worthy effort by the reality star, but even she could not kompete with the perfection that is Kate Upton in 2012.
Seriously, Sports Illustrated. And genetics. Thank you.
Kate has taken over the world since covering SI‘s annual swimsuit issue last winterMore >
We’re inching ever closer to the end of 2012, and THG’s Celebrity of the Year.
With the calendar about to flip to 2013, we’re looking back at the stars who made this year so memorable via their songs, sex tapes, naked photos, and/or arrests.
Justin Bieber kicked off our top five, followed by Kate Middleton in the #4 spot and Taylor Swift at #3. Today, we present our Celebrity of the Year runner-up:
The year will go down as another huge one for Rih musically, with the prolific singer’s albums Talk That Talk and Unapologetic both dominating the charts.
That’s justMore >
It’s that time of the year again.
With 2013 around the corner, THG is going back in time and selecting 10 finalists for our annual Celebrity of the Year award.
These stars gave us their best, their worst, their nude pics (sometimes hot), their sex tapes (often not) and their scandals. We kicked off the countdown with Adam Levine at #10.
And now we move on to #9… HONEY BOO BOO!
A year ago, seven-year old Alana Thompson was just your basic kid… who starred in beauty pageants and appeared occasionally on Toddlers & Tiaras.
Then TLC turned its cameras specifically on Thompson andMore >
Rihanna’s “We Found Love” is burning up the charts, so it made sense that she performed during the announcement of the 2012 Grammy nominations on CBS.
Her performance was beamed in from a London’s O2 arena, where she showed no signs of fatigue despite reports that she’s burned out and may take a year off.
“#GRAMMYS2012 5 nominations!!!” Rihanna Tweeted excitedly. “This year keeps getting better and better!#LOUD up 4 Album of the year is so #MAJAH.”
In addition to Album of the Year, the 25-year-old Barbadian beauty is nominated for Best Rap collaboration, Best Pop Vocal Album and Song ofMore >
Justin Timberlake can make us laugh.
He can make us swoon.
But can he make us sit on the edge of our seat and wonder what will happen next? The singer/actor will attempt to do so later this year, starring in In Time along with Amanda Seyfried, Alex Pettyfer and Cillian Murphy. Below, watch Timberlake fight for his life in a future society where time has replaced money as currency:

Controversial Fox News personality Glenn Beck has announced he will “transition off his daily program” on the network at an undetermined point later this year.
He will instead focus on developing other projects for the network.
Beck and Fox News released a joint statement regarding the decision, saying the final episode of Beck’s show, titled Glenn Beck, will air “later this year.”
Beck and Fox have not revealed the air date for the final episode.
The statement explains Beck and Fox News “will work together to develop and produce a variety of television projects for air on the FOX NewsMore >
(HMG Celebrity News) – Perhaps this was a situation where her business management unwisely handled her arrangements but this really reflects poorly on Food Network star Ina Garten. TMZ reports that the Make-A-Wish Foundation asked the Barefoot Contessa if she would grant the wish of a 6-year-old cancer patient named Enzo, by cooking him a meal. Enzo, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia three years ago, asked Make-A-Wish if they would help him meet Ina Garten. Enzo regularly watches her show on the Food Network with his mother.
When Ina’s people told the foundation thatMore >
A mom blows her nose. A baby laughs. Smiles ensue across the Internets.
It’s a tried and true formula. As Micah, the baby who laughs at ripping paper proved earlier this year, it can even earn you a spot on the Today show.
He’s got some company in a five-and-a-half-month old named Emerson, whose reaction when mom blows her nose can best be described as mixed.
Sometimes he’s terrified, then he can’t stop laughing. In the span of mere seconds. Watching him cower in fear, then crack up is pretty priceless …
This is not the Tiger Woods of old. Or even of 2009.
On Thanksgiving night that year, his personal life erupted in scandal. The damage to his family and his golf game took pretty much all of 2010 to play out.
As he looks to turn over a new leaf on and off the course this year, Woods talked about his career, kids and quest for balance on Good Morning America:
In the interview, which was more subdued and serious than his chat with Jimmy Fallon, the golfer talked about how he’s adjusting to life as a single dad.
“I’m present with my kids,” he said. “That’sMore >
(HMG Celebrity News) – And here are the winner (also known as losers) from this year’s Razzie Awards, held yesterday a day before the 2011 Academy Awards. The Last Airbender and Sex and the City 2 were the big winners as the worst of the worst. The M. Night Shyamalan’s Last Airbender, a live-action film adaptation of the animated TV series Avatar: The Last Airbender, won 5 trophies including Worst Picture of the Year. SATC2, won three awards including Worst Ensemble. Meanwhile the two actors singled out for razzie un-excellence last night were Ashton Kutcher, who won worst actor forMore >
[HMG Celebrity News] – When Chris Brown was accused of assaulting Rihanna just before the 2009 Grammys the world was incensed. A Judge later banned him from being within 100-yards of the singer, but Chris is now hoping that rule can be lifted before this year’s event.
The 21-year old is up for three awards this year but the order still requires him to stay 10 yards away from Rihanna while attending a show, so during a progress hearing in court yesterday he and his lawyer, Mark Geragos asked a Judge to vacate the order.

It’s official, Jay Leno is now a Harvard man, well maybe not, but he has been named the Hasty Pudding Man of the Year by the Hasty Pudding Theatricals of Harvard University.
The drama troupe is the oldest undergraduate program of it’s kind in the United States and they annually honor an individual who entertains the masses.
According to the group Jay Leno was chosen because he has:
“Entertained millions of people over his long and accomplished career in comedy….”
Although we have the sneaking suspicion that the controversy Leno drew between himself and Conan probably helped the group pickMore >
Alicia Silverstone is no longer clueless about how to make a baby. The actress is pregnant!
The 34-year old actress and Christopher Jarecki will become parents for the first time this year, echoing Silverstone’s sentiments from last April:
“I’ve been wanting to have a baby since I was 2 years old. I’m destined to be a mother.”
The couple got married in June 2005 in Lake Tahoe after eight years together and we’re so happy for them.
Keira Knightley no longer has a friend. Rupert Friend, that is.
The long-time couple has split, according to the actress’ father. He told The Sun: “They have broken up. They were together for quite a long time and it is always hard breaking up. She’s focused on her work.”
Knightley and Friend met in 2005 while filming Pride and Prejudice. She just complete filming on A Dangerous Method, while he will appear in the movie 5 Days of August later this year.

Sometimes last year’s fashion can be this year’s, too. Nicole Richie wore her very own Winter Kate design on New Year’s Eve one year ago, as seen below.
Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo, meanwhile, donned the very same thing just last weekend to ring in the new year. It certainly worked both times!
Who wore it better, though? That’s for your votes to decide …
