11 Biggest Celebrity Scandals Of 2016
It’s hard to believe that 2016 is coming to an end! It’s been an exciting year full of surprising celebrity news with everything from pregnancies, marriage, divorce and, as always, plenty of scandal! We’re taking a look back over the past 12 months and have rounded up some of the biggest scandals of 2016 — check it out!
11. Live! with Kelly and Michael
When news broke that Michael Strahan was leaving Live! with Kelly and Michael it was a pretty big deal. What made it even more of a big deal was that Kelly Ripa was once again blindsided with the news; this happened before when Regis Phillbin left the show in 2011. Earlier this year, deals were being made behind her back to move Strahan over to Good Morning America and Ripa made it abundantly clear she was not happy about it. The next morning she failed to show up for work, and then took the rest of the week off and didn’t return until the following Tuesday. When she did come back, she addressed the audience with a solo monologue about respect in the workplace, and continued to make subtle jabs at both Strahan and ABC until he made a quick departure a few weeks later. It seems to have all blown over now, but we’re pretty sure the relationship between Ripa and Strahan will never be the same and hopefully ABC execs have learned their lesson!
10. Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford
Carrie Fisher baffled Star Wars fans when she stated in her memoir, The Princess Diarist, and then again on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, that she had an affair with her co-star Harrison Ford nearly 40 years ago on the set of the first Star Wars film. She made the claim that the passionate affair took place over the course of three months and started after she and Ford attended a birthday party for George Lucas. At the time she was only 19 and he was 33! “No one thought it was happening at the time. I don’t even know if he did. We practiced the kissing off-screen. That shows dedication to your craft. I was 19. No one told me about location rules or lack of rules. You can do whatever you want as long as you film the movie,” she said.
