STARS & SCANDALS THAT SHOOK 2012: 
Pint-sized Princess 
Six year-old Alana Thompson, aka "Honey Boo Boo", became an overnight 
sensation after the videos of her appearances on TODDLERS & TIARAS went viral. 
TLC decided to give the sassy little pageant queen her own series, HERE COMES 
HONEY BOO BOO, premiering this past August. From McIntyre, Georgia, Honey Boo 
Boo lives with her mother June Shannon, father Mike Thompson, and three older 
sisters. With the family now a household name, Honey Boo Boo's mother in 
particular has been criticized for her "redneck" lifestyle and for her 
daughter's diet including Red Bull, cheese puffs, and roadkill. 
The Royal Naked Scandals  Prince Harry of Wales, aka Queen Elizabeth II's 
28-year old "wild grandchild", had an eventful year with a mischievous trip to 
Sin City this past August. While vacationing in Las Vegas, the press hit the 
jackpot as tabloids of a naked Harry together with an unknown young woman was 
taken in a hotel room at the Wynn Hotel. Then, with the Royals still reeling 
about Prince Harry's naked pics, French tabloid Closer magazine published a 
series of uncensored photos of Kate Middleton sunbathing topless in the South 
of France with Prince William, sending shockwaves around the world! 
Vampire vs. Huntsman Scandal
Twilight's Kristen Stewart was caught in one of the biggest cheating scandals 
of the year. Since meeting fellow Twilight star, Robert Pattinson on set in 
2008, the two have been romantically linked for the past four years. This past 
July, US Weekly released photos of Stewart having an affair with director 
Rupert Sanders, whom she met during the filming of Sander's film, Snow White 
and The Huntsman. British actor vs. British director, there is speculation 
that KStew has chosen the vampire once again.
