There is nothing that gossip magazines love more than a good old-fashioned celebrity feud. They’re entertaining, attract readers, and they give people the opportunity to weigh in on the juicy lives of celebrities. But there isn’t just one kind of celebrity feud. Sometimes feuding celebrities make up in a single short minute, and other times, celebrity feuds last for years and years with no end in sight. But whatever these celebrity’s reasons for feuding, below is a list of ten of the biggest celebrity feuds of all time. No matter how hard they did or didn’t try, these celebrities just couldn’t seem to get along. They bashed each other on Twitter, in magazines, and to anyone else who’d listen. In some cases, these feuding celebrities managed to settle their differences and come to a cease fire, in other cases, these celebrity feuds are still raging on today. So for your enjoyment, below is a list of ten of the biggest celebrity feuds of all time.
10. Jennifer Aniston vs. Bill O’Reilly
Jennifer Aniston and Bill O’Reilly’s feud started back when Aniston was promoting her movie, The Switch. In an interview, Aniston said, “women are realizing more and more that they don’t have to settle with a man just to have a child.” Apparently, O’Reilly took great offence to Aniston’s statement. O’ Reilly lashed out at Aniston saying, “She’s throwing a message out to 12-year-olds that, ‘Hey you don’t need a guy. You don’t need a dad?’ That’s destructive to our society.” Aniston fired back by pointing out that of course, having two parents is the ideal option but it isn’t always possible. In an interview with People, Aniston said, “of course, many women dream of finding Prince Charming (with fatherly instincts), but for those who’ve not yet found their Bill O’Reilly, I’m just glad science has provided a few other options.”
9. Tom Cruise vs. Brooke Shields
In 2005, Tom Cruise went on a rant after Brooke Shields’ talked about taking antidepressants after her baby was born. Cruise said, “When someone says (medication) has helped them, it is to cope, it didn’t cure anything. There is no science. There is nothing that can cure them whatsoever.” He also took a dig at Shields’ career, saying that it’s going nowhere. Shields fired back by saying, “Tom should stick to saving the world from aliens and let women who are experiencing postpartum depression decide what treatment options are best for them.” Since the feud, Cruise has apologized by sending Shields’ baby gifts.
8. Kim Kardashian vs. Katie Couric
Kim Kardashian and Katie Couric’s feud started after Couric said that she didn’t understand why the Kardashian family was famous. Although this is a question we all ask ourselves sometimes, Kardashian didn’t take Couric’s remark so well. When Couric sent Kardashian a present congratulating her on her new baby girl, Kardashian posted the picture on Instagram with the hashtags, #IHateFakeMediaFriends and #MayIHumblySuggestYouNotSendGiftsThenTalkShit. After the post, Couric explained that she didn’t mean to hurt Kardashian’s feelings. Eventually, the two managed to patch things up. In July of this year, they were seen posing together at a party in the Hamptons.
7. Anthony Bourdain vs. Paula Deen
Anthony Bourdain has always made it perfectly clear that he is not Paula Deen’s biggest fan. He even made a comment to TV Guide saying that she is, “the worst, most dangerous person to America.” Eventually, Deen fired back by saying, “You know, not everybody can afford to pay $58 for prime rib or $650 for a bottle of wine. My friends and I cook for regular families who worry about feeding their kids and paying the bills…” Later on in their feud, Deen announced that she has had diabetes for three years and has been hiding it from her fans. Of course, Bourdain took to Twitter to say, “Thinking of getting into the leg-breaking business, so I can profitably sell crutches later.”
6. Lily Allen Vs. Courtney Love
Lily Allen is famous for getting into all sorts of fights with different celebrities, but in her ongoing feud with Courtney Love, things got particularly ugly. After Love trashed Allen for supposedly demanding a “lock,” on Chanel dresses, things got personal. Allen decided to fire back at Love saying, “As a rule I don’t pick on crazy old ladies….It’s the sort of thing a paranoid drug addled lunatic might come up with.” Although Love eventually apologized for her statement against Allen, Allen has reportedly been less than apologetic.
5. Charlie Sheen vs. Chuck Lorre
Charlie Sheen and Chuck Lorre’s feud might be one of the most entertaining feuds to watch of all time. The feud started when Sheen flipped a switch and went from the highest paid actor on television to “winning.” After making a fool of himself in the media, Sheen checked himself into rehab, which caused Two and a Half Men to go on hiatus. However, Sheen wasn’t done making trouble for the show and its creator, Chuck Lorre. After Lorre made a comment about Sheen’s health, Sheen blasted Lorre by saying, “I violently hate Chaim Levine (Chuck Lorre). He’s a stupid, stupid little man and a p***y punk that I’d never want to be like.” After this less-than-friendly comment, Sheen was fired from the show and replaced by Ashton Kutcher. Since his remarks, Sheen has wished the show good luck.
4. Nicole Richie vs. Paris Hilton
Former BFF’s Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton had a highly publicized falling out on their reality show, The Simple Life. It all started in May, 2005, when Hilton admitted to the media once and for all, that she and Richie were no longer friends. But rather than give an explanation for the break-up, Hilton simply said, “I will not go into the details of what happened. All I will say is that Nicole knows what she did and that’s all I am ever going to say about it.” There have been many rumors as to what happened between Paris and Nicole. One of them is that Nicole got jealous of Paris hosting SNL, so instead of watching it with her friends she turned on Paris’ infamous sex tape. Although this claim is probably false, most of the rumors surrounding the Paris and Nicole break-up focus on Nicole being jealous of Paris. However, the pair seems to have come to a standstill. In January of this year, Richie spoke out about her former BFF Paris, saying that they would be in each other’s lives forever.
3. Donald Trump vs. Rosie O’Donnell
The longtime feud between Donald Trump and Rosie O’Donnell started when Trump allowed Tara Connor to keep her Miss USA title, after it was discovered that she had problems with drugs and alcohol. In an interview about the incident, O’Donnell called Trump a, “snake-oil salesman.” But Trump didn’t take this comment lying down. He fired back in an interview with People magazine saying, “Rose’s a loser. A real loser. I look forward to taking lots of money from my nice fat little Rosie.” The pair have been attacking each other on TV and Twitter, ever since.
2. Elton John vs. Madonna
Elton John and Madonna have been famously feuding for years. Their feud started when John was accepting an award for classic songwriter. In his speech, he said, “Madonna, best live act? F—- off. Since when has lip-synching been live? Sorry about that, but I think everyone who lip-synchs on stage in public when you pay like 75 quid to see them should be shot.” Their feud continued to blaze on throughout the years, with John continuing to bash Madonna in the media. In an interview about Madonna’s Super Bowl gig, John said, “Make sure you lip-synch good.”
1. Amanda Bynes vs. Everyone
In the past couple of years, Amanda Bynes has gone from being America’s sweetheart to one hot mess. During this time, she has started Twitter feuds with just about everyone. Some of her victims include Chrissy Teigen, Courtney Love, Rihanna, The NYPD and Jenny McCarthy. Here are just some of the nasty tweets that Bynes has sent out:
Chrissy Teigen: “Thankfully no man that wants me wants you and you are an ugly model compared to me! You look 45! You’re not pretty so I’m not intimidated by you! I think you’re jealous that you’re just an ugly model whos career is uninspiring.”
Rihanna: “Chris Brown beat you because you’re not pretty enough.”
Jenny McCarthy: “You’re ugly! Police weren’t at my house old lady! Shut the f—k up!”
