The Biggest Sex Scandals of 2011
2011 sure was an… interesting year for scandals of a sexual nature…

Technology is a powerful tool if you know how to use it. Unfortunately, celebrities haven’t the slightest clue. It’s been a year of regrettable tweets, career-ending emails and humiliating camera phone snapshots, all of which contributed to a record number of sex scandals. But technology can’t be blamed for all the broken marriages and pulverized political careers in 2011. Some celebrities let their good old-fashioned poor judgment lead the way.
The Demise of Dashton
Ashton, Demi, her three daughters, and her ex-husband Bruce Willis were one big happy caravan until a few more stragglers hopped on for the ride. As the cobwebs of a threesome rumor cleared, another alleged Ashton conquest came forward claiming to have hot-tubbed and bedded Ms. Moore’s man. Cut to Demi’s slick divorce announcement and Ashton’s “marriage is hard” Twitter follow-up.
Anthony Weiner’s Weiner
It was almost too easy. When the married congressman was caught posting images of his hot dog to Twitter followers, tabloid headline writers didn’t really have to work at all. Then Weiner continued to provide new material as more of his electronic extramarital affairs, with six different women, became public. After the scandal broke, but before he finally left office, Weiner allegedly emailed one of his Twitter “friends”, porn star Ginger Lee, about how to handle the probing press. At that point, you kind of wanted to take the guy’s Internet away for his own good.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Has a 13-Year-Old Baby
After years of denying rumors of extramarital affairs, the California governor came clean about the love-child he had with his longtime housekeeper, Mildred Baena. “After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago,” Schwarzenegger said in a statement issued to The Los Angeles Times, which first broke the story. By that point, his wife Maria Shriver had a hunch about the boy, born over a decade ago, who looked astonishing like the action hero. After Maria filed for divorce, things got even uglier. Baena’s ex-husband claimed Arnold falsified his love-child’s birth certificate to cover up the scandal. And Brigitte Nielsen prattled on about her affair with the muscleman in the early years of his relationship with Shriver.
Jesse James Proves He’s Not a Changed Man
It was the Facebook update that surprised no one: “Today I encountered the 19th girl to add to the list of people Jesse cheated on me with during this last year .” After a year defending James against haters, Kat Von D finally felt what it was like to be in Sandra Bullock’s worst pair of shoes.
