Mel Gibson: Gibson's reputation sank to the gutter after several recordings, purportedly of him berating Oksana Grigorieva, his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his infant daughter, leaked online. Jews, African-Americans, women, homosexuals, anyone appalled by the sound of a grown man growling into a phone -- there aren't a lot of people those recordings didn't offend.
Jay Leno: Sure, he got to keep "The Tonight Show." But at what cost? When Leno cheerfully took back his old gig and refused to stick up for O'Brien though the NBC brouhaha, he went from being America's loveable, sometimes-funny uncle to the guy who refuses to leave at the party even after the lights are turned off. Move it along, man, move it along.
Speidi: Like the eczema of the earth, they're the rash that just won't go away. Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt started the year off with a bang when she revealed her brand new body, the product of ten plastic surgeries. The "Hills" reality stars went on to announce that they were separating, only to get back together to try and "make things work." (Or is it that no one else can put up with them?) Now Montag wants her old body back, and the rest of us want back every minute we might have paid attention to her and her husband.
