The 2012 celebrity scandals list reminds us of those unfortunate moments when our favorite celebrities, or those celebrities we love to hate, found themselves on the losing end of a scandal or five. From nude photos that may or may not have been released to boost publicity to celebrities who cannot seem to stay out of legal trouble, 2012 brought us another year full or celebrity scandals.

While some celebs saw their names in the gossip headlines more often than others, Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes we're looking at you, 2012 proved that no one was safe from scandal. That's right, even royalty got their scare of bad press in 2012 when nude photos of Kate Middleton (Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge) and her brother in law Prince Harry each battled the press when nude photos of them individually began to circulate. Also joining the list of celebs who had naked photo scandals in 2010 were Christina Hendricks from "Mad Men" and actress Olivia Munn, both of which were victims of hacking, or at least that's the story given by their PR teams.

More serious offenders also made the news in 2012 for shocking the nation with arrests, lawsuits, cat fights and divorces. Between the Lance Armstrong doping scandal in cycling, the sudden death of music icon Whitney Houston, the sexual harassment claims against actor John Travolta and the fact that country singer Randy Travis couldn't seem to stop drunk driving naked, the OMG moments rarely stopped in 2012.

If there's one thing that's for sure, as long as we have celebrity douchebags and reckless young Hollywood starlets, we're sure to have celebrity scandals. So if there's one you think is so much more scandalous than all the rest, vote it up! Similarly, feel free to add any that are missing and even re-rank this list your way as you enjoy this 2012 celebrity scandal goodness.
