Mean Betty’s Celebrity Turkeys of 2012
Who made Mean Betty’s list of Celebrity Turkeys for 2012? Find out here!
Kittens! It’s almost Thanksgiving! You know what that means, don’t you? That’s right: Turkey! Of course, in addition to the turkeys (or Tofurkeys, for all you veggies) we consume on the big day itself, there is also another kind of turkey lurking about. This menace, unlike its dinner table counterpart, is neither feathered nor delicious. Indeed, it can be downright dangerous.
Meanie is talking, of course, about Celebrity Turkeys.
The word “turkey” when used in reference to a person can be defined as any one of the following:
- A person considered inept or undesirable; (The American Heritage Dictionary)
- A term of address for a child acting silly; (The Online Slang Dictionary)
- A person or thing of little appeal; dud; loser; OR, a naive, stupid, or inept person (Dictionary.com)
- A tool; a person who is not in with current culture and slang or is just generally uncool. (Urban Dictionary)
With these definitions in mind, then, Meanie would like to present to you her list of Celebrity Turkeys of 2012. Each of these five celebs (or “celebs,” if you prefer) have demonstrated behavior which fits any or all of the above definitions over the course of the year, and as such, they have landed themselves on Meanie’s list. Prepare yourselves, kittens; this could get messy!
1. Miley Cyrus
It’s no secret, kittens, that Miley Cyrus’ career stalled—after which she began doing whatever she needed to in order to keep herself in the tabloids. Indeed, many are questioning the genuineness of Miley’s radical punk haircut and engagement to previously on-again, off-again boyfriend Liam Hemsworth. Were they both just ways to stay in the spotlight? Perhaps. Meanie hopes that they weren’t—especially as she and Liam went and got themselves extremely permanent matching couples tattoos—but the fact that we even have to question it in the first place is enough to land Miss Miley on Meanie’s list. Here’s hoping that her new album and the upcoming year are enough to take her off of it!
2. Kate Gosselin
Of course, kittens, as attention-focused as Miley Cyrus is, she doesn’t hold a candle to Kate Gosselin. After TLC cancelled her reality show, Kate Plus Eight (formerly, of course, Jon and Kate Plus Eight—Jon Gosselin has been keeping his head down lately, accounting for his exclusion from Meanie’s list), Kate tried desperately to find a way to stay in the limelight. When she was unable to get another television gig, she began blogging for CouponCabin.com—only to be fired in October for her lack of contribution to the money-saving site. What Meanie keeps going back to is this: Kate is a registered nurse. She clearly knew how to carve out a living for herself before reality television came along. Why on earth does she keep resisting going back to her former honorable profession? We all have our fifteen minutes of fame, Kate, but when they’re up, we must accept it with good grace and move on. Wouldn’t you agree, kittens?
