2009: The Year of Cheating
If you like to cheat, 2009 was your year to live it up. Everyone from politicians to made-for-telivision-movie actors was doing it, and sometimes with very little panache.
Jon Gosselin, of Jon and Kate Plus 8, became a household name outside the TLC set when he stepped out on wife Kate with a string of younger ladies, including the daughter of Kate's plastic surgeon.
In another cable-TV scandal, Leann Rimes and Eddie Cibrian both left their spouses after costarring in a made-for-television romance called Nothern Lights (who knew that the Lifetime Channel could ignite such passion?).
South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford admitted to having an extramarital affair with a woman living in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
David Letterman announced on his show that he was being blackmailed because of affairs he'd had with young female staffers.
Katie Joel ran around on her much-older piano man.
Josh Duhamel stepped out on Fergie with a stripper.
And, of course, no one did it better than Tiger Woods. The world's greatest golfer proved he could hit holes-in-one both on and off the green when more than a dozen women came forward at the end of the year claiming they'd carried on with him.
What will the '10s bring us? We can't wait to see...
