What was hot, what was not; who got rehabbed, who got caught

January 1, 2011

Let us lift up our glass, filled with holiday cheer,
To the winners, the losers, the events of the year.
What was hot, what was not; the skinny, the dope, the goods,
From Bieber to GaGa to a lascivious Tiger named Woods.
From Lindsey Lohan to ‘MadMen’ to ‘Jersey Shore,’
From ‘Iron Chef’ to Republican Revival to the divorced Al Gore,
From the late Elizabeth Edwards, whose husband still smirks,
To angry Mel Gibson, with his rants, raves, cocktails and quirks,
From ‘The View’ to ‘No Clue’ to ‘Who Knew?’ and How Are You?
