In some parts of the world, celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ as Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison did might spark mass protests, make babies cry, or at least get someone slapped with a fine.
Here, it's just annoying.
The former "Lost" actor and his 17-year-old bride trotted out in the snow recently for another one of their epic holiday-themed photo shoots, posing like Santa Claus and his frisky, red-spandex loving Mrs.
With that, they cemented their place as 2011's most irritating celebrity couple. (For further validation, see their Halloween photo shoot that got them kicked out of a pumpkin patch and Stodden's tweets, i.e., "Prancing around my marvelous morning mansion while wearing sheer unmentionables as merry melodies motion about... muah! XOs."
Click through to see four more couples that made us roll our eyes this year:
|LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian|
When she's not publicly professing her love for Eddie Cibrian, LeAnn Rimes is defending her weight. Earlier this year, she was approached in a Chicago restaurant by a patron who told her, "You need to eat something." A righteous Rimes took to Twitter, ranting, "How dare someone come to me at a table w/ the boys and tell me I need to eat something. What is wrong with people!? As I'm stuffing my face… have another drink and maybe take a class in manners! Cheers!" She's since taken to chronicling things she eats or wants to eat on Twitter, posting things like, "The carrot cake we just had was insane! Just took home half a doggie bag."
|Tori Spelling and Dean McDermont|
There's her habit of incorporating her name into projects whenever possible, i.e., Oxygen's "Tori & Dean: sTORIbook Weddings," a reality show in which she and Dean McDermont throw a bucket of Hollywood glitter on the weddings of mere mortals, and her life advice website of sorts, ediTORIal. Then there are the couple's Twitter over-shares, which reached a new level in November when McDermont tweeted a photo of one of their kids to his more than 80,000 followers without noticing a key element in the background -- his wife's bare breasts.
|Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez|
Remember that uber cutesy couple in high school, the people that walked around with their hands in each others back pockets and made kissy faces from opposite ends of biology lab? Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are them, except worse, because half the time, they refuse to acknowledge that they're actually dating even though their actions, tweets, and habitual IHOP dates say otherwise. (Really, Biebs? IHOP?) Bieber had the perfect opportunity to profess his love for his pop star princess in the wake of allegations that he fathered a fan's baby, but instead, when asked about Gomez, he told the women of "The View," "I have to have something that's special to me that I don't share with everyone else."
|Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries|
True, they're no longer together, but this list would not be complete without a mention of 2011's biggest couple fail. They made a big deal about getting engaged. They made an even bigger deal about getting married. And when it was time to get divorced, a whopping 72 days later, they (well, she) begged for privacy. Maybe if that No More Kardashians petition pans out, she'll get her wish.
