Celebitchy’s top ten most commented stories of 2013

Yesterday we covered the most popular stories, by traffic, of 2013. Today we’re counting down the most commented stories. Those are often the most controversial, but there’s plenty of people agreeing and commiserating too, particularly about the things that shocked us this year, like Miley Cyrus and Brandi Glanville. Here are our top ten stories by comment number.

10. August 14: Oprah called ‘over-sensitive’ by Zurich boutique

Oprah claimed that a Zurich shopgirl was racist when she refused to show her a $40k purse and pointed her to a cheaper alternative. The shopkeeper admitted that Oprah was told the purse was too expensive, but then proceeded to defend her employee, claiming that Oprah was being “absurd” and “over-sensitive.”

9. February 7: LeAnn Rimes ‘losing it’ over Brandi Glanville’s book

Earlier this year Brandi Glanville definitely had the upper hand over her media rival, LeAnn Rimes. Brandi had a bestselling book detailing the ways that LeAnn Rimes had stalked and stolen her man. Advance details from Brandi’s book, Drinking and Tweeting, were said to be driving LeAnn crazy, and we know it doesn’t take much.

8. August 26: VMAs dominated by Miley Cyrus’s stank

It was the twerk heard ’round the world when Miley Cyrus rubbed up on Robin Thicke while wearing a nude-colored bikini. We’re all well aware of Miley’s schtick by now, but this was the public’s first real introduction to Miley 2.0: The tongue. I have seen enough of this girl’s personal area to last me a lifetime, and don’t tell me that’s “slut shaming.”

7. December 18: Duck Dynasty’s Phil gives horribly offensive interview

Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson gave an incredibly offensive interview to GQ in which he equated homosexuality with bestiality, claimed that black people were happier under Jim Crow laws, and tried to equate war with a lack of Christian beliefs. A&E put Phil on hiatus, but his family stood by him and doubled-down. The entire Duck Dynasty franchise is now in jeopardy.

6. April 22: Reese Witherspoon arrested for disorderly conduct

Reese Witherspoon’s public image will never be the same after she was caught on tape challenging a police officer during her husband’s DUI arrest. Reese showed a supreme sense of entitlement and lack of respect for authority when she slurred “you’re about to find out who I am,” and added that she was a “US citizen” allowed “to stand on American ground.”

5. May 31: Justin Theroux finds Brad Pitt’s Esquire interview uncool

Surprisingly enough, there are no unholy triangle posts in the top three, just this one which tied for 5th and 4th place with our Oscars post. After Brad Pitt sort-of shaded ex wife Jennifer Aniston to Esquire, Justin Theroux allegedly came to his lady’s defense. Star Magazine claims that Theroux told a mutual friend to tell Brad to cut it out.

4. February 24: Oscars Open Post

The 85th Annual Oscars at Hollywood & Highland Center
We love to chat about Hollywood’s biggest night. There’s always plenty of fashion, drama and an occasional upset. This year we had Jennifer Lawrence falling up the stairs and Anne Hathaway falling all over herself.

3. May 14: Angelina Jolie reveals double mastectomy

Angelina Jolie shocked the world with a moving op ed piece in the NY Times. Angelina explained that she’d opted for a double mastectomy after genetic tests revealed she had an 87% risk of developing breast cancer. After having lost her mother and aunt to breast cancer, Angelina wasn’t taking any chances. Some people were thrilled that she’d brought attention to such a worthy cause while others questioned whether her announcement would cause a rise in expensive genetic tests and medically unnecessary mastectomies. Whichever side you’re on, Angelina’s big reveal proved that the tabloids don’t have a clue what’s going on with her.

2. July 9: Brandi Glanville got fall-down drunk

Before her drinking problem was apparent on RHOBH, Brandi Glanville was photographed getting sloppy, fall-down drunk in a tiny see-through babydoll dress in London. The tide of public opinion had yet to turn against Brandi and many commenters were arguing about whether she still had the moral high ground over LeAnn Rimes.

1. October 4: Miley Cyrus poses for Terry Richardson

We couldn’t even show the ads on this post, even after blurring out Miley’s crotch and boobs, because the photos were so obnoxious and suggestive. Creeper Terry Richardson took the photos of course, and he also directed the “Wrecking Ball” video. You can blame him for the hammer licking, but not for Miley’s whole new persona, which got so many people talking in 2013.

For everyone looking for a Cumby post, I’m sorry! Cumberbatch is at #13 for the interview with his onetime Russian hookup, Katia Elizarova, espousing her deep thoughts on feminism, spousal abuse, and her role in relationships. At number 11 (or really tied for number 10) would be Lindsay Lohan barely making it to a court date. The news that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West named their baby “North” is at number 12.

Have a great holiday everyone and we’ll see you for some more gossip on Thursday!

    Man, that pic of Angie is just…breathtaking.

    …so I guess Miley wins right? 2 out of 10 stories…she’s definitely the master of attention-seeking behavior.

  2. Audrey says:

    Merry Christmas!!! Thanks for all of your work

    So happy that I found this site a couple of years ago to replace the vile perez hilton! Haven’t been back there for years

  3. Esmom says:

    Love this recap, and yesterday’s too. Thanks, Team Celebitchy, for making my days a bit brighter with your posts.

    Wishing peace and joy to all, posters and commenters alike!

  4. angelic 21 says:

    I read most of these posts but never commented on it. I’m surprised there is not even a single post on duchess Kate or royal baby in either this or most visited stories.

    Anyway merry Christmas everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Tapioca says:

    Reese! Probably my favourite police car dash-cam video of all time…

  6. The Original G says:

    Happy Holidays, Celebitchy, fellow poster and trolls!

    All the best. Peace on Earth. Goodwill to All.

  7. PunkyMomma says:

    Merry Christmas to everyone. My fav – Laura Jean Poon.

  8. Kimp says:

    Hope everyone have a Merry Christmas!

  9. TWINK says:

    I’m happy Cumberbatch is not in the top 10, I just don’t get the attraction but I love the website. Happy holidays!

  10. j.eyre says:

    Yes, I am surprised.

    Thank you for the posts and all the Celebitchy fun. Happy Holidays to everyone (again.)

    Safe and eventless travels to anyone going somewhere.

  11. Delilah says:

    Thanks for this!!! I’m a bit surprised none if the Robsten stuff landed – I felt like there was a saturation those posts.

  12. Dimebox says:

    Wait! No picture of baby Bieber being put in his car seat?😊 Merry Christmas Celebitches!

  13. Lucy2 says:

    That is a very pretty Angelina photo. Especially compared to Miley’s trashy ones!
    Kind of interesting how it’s a mix of pure gossip and serious issue posts-racism, wonen’s health, etc. And that’s why I love this site so much!

    Merry Christmas, and Happy and SAFE Holidays to all!

  14. TheOriginalTiffany says:

    Merry Christmas Everyone! I hope you all have lovely times with friends and family and that none of us Celebitches get coal in their stocking.

  15. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    I think the two posts that shocked me the most was Angelina’s double mastectomy op-ed, and Reese Witherspoon being a smart ass to the cops, on camera. Obviously, Angelina’s news was just shocking and totally unexpected–but Reese? God. I would’ve never expected that from her–then again, I’d never heard much about her, let alone that she was BITCH.

  16. miriam says:

    What I want for Christmas is for Miley Cyrus to disappear. She’s an overrated and over-exposed exhibitionist idiot.

  17. Tiffany says:

    Happy Holiday to all and may your egg nog stay spiked to New Year’s
    :) .

  18. Sumodo1 says:

    Reese. Yes, she broke celebrity code: do you know who I am? Merry Christmas to my favorite bloggers and our circle of commenters.

  19. judyjudy says:

    Not gonna lie…the reliability of trashy Leann/Eddie/Brandi posts helped me get through a very tumultuous year. When life got stressful I could always count on Falcor and the Filterless Wonder to distract me.

    Happy holidays to the whole Celebitchy family!

  20. Mingy says:

    I love that Kimye didn’t make the top ten.
    Happy holidays! Off to make cupcakes! XOXO

  21. Dorothy says:

    Vanity Fair being bought out by Gwyneth should be biggest or at least most disappointing one. Contact them – they had almost EVERYTHING on her. Where’s expose on what and how many $$$ and people it took for her to whip them? That should be biggest story of next year! Happy Holidays all! (Except Princess Paltrow and Give-In Graydon of course :-)

  22. flipflop says:

    I hardly ever comment because I can’t go on CB at work. I feel like I’m late to the party by the time I get online most of the comments are several hours old. I thoroughly enjoy reading what everyone has to say though.

    So happy not to see Kim K in the top 10 too. What a nice Xmas present! Next year I’m asking Santa for no more Miley.

    • Kate says:

      This sounds pathetic but I don’t care. My morning activity begins with reading the celebitchy.com site. Sometimes there are disagreements but people are usually respectful

    • lovelylaura says:

      Me too, flipflop!

      One of my favorite ways to unwind at night is to catch up with my gossip and read all the comments . I rarely comment (everything I’m thinking has usually been said!) but I really do enjoy not just the occasional catfights, but also seeing all the love we have for each other! Many times I see commenters asking about family members, illnesses, or wishing each other happy birthdays. It is truly a community here and I just want to thank Celebitchy for the many, many (maybe too many!) hours of enjoyment I received this year. Merry Christmas to all!

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      It doesn’t matter–some people (ME) reread old archive posts, especially if it’s a topic that I’m interested in. So it’s nice to see one more comment.

  23. jwoolman says:

    Saw someone elsewhere refer to the Daffy Duck Dynasty, hope that catches on.

    • Anon says:

      Actually, that may not far from the truth. ‘Duck Dynasty’ writers stole script ideas from ‘Curious George’ episodes from PBS. I know this because I watch countless episodes on youtube with my grandson…over and over. (escaped reptile from aquarium and throwing flour everywhere to track it…mess everywhere, classic “George”.)

    I hope I need not see Miley’s tongue so often next year!
