Friday night's emotional Kendra on Top Season 3 Episode 14 marked a one-hour finale of the We TV show centered around the titular star's fragile marriage.

Would Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett split up for good? Or continue working toward a future together, picking up the pieces to find "The Missing Peace"?

The culmination of a scandal that erupted earlier this year, and formed the basis for the entire series you forgot was even still on, this was the final chapter.

We came into Kendra on Top Season 3 Episode 14 unsure where things stood as she returned from Costa Rica and learned about her mom’s Facebook rant.

A few days later, Patti Wilkinson sold a story about Kendra to the tabloids, and wasn't kind to her in that either. When one door closes, another opens, though.

This actually helped bring Kendra and Hank closer together, as they saw the story in the press (yeah, right) while waiting to meet with their therapist.

The Duggar family is at the center of massive controversy this week, with more than 120,000 people signing a petition to cancel 19 Kids and Counting.

It's far from the first time they've faced heavy scrutiny, however.

In many ways, the family's most recent scandal is a culmination of many. The petition was actually started months ago, only to gain traction recently.

Here's a look back at 13 times the TLC stars faced backlash ...

Jessa Gets Strapped
Jessa Duggar and her then-boyfriend Ben Seewald began courting controversy almost from the moment they started dating, posing for photos like this one - a picture that now seems tame considering what they've been stirring up more recently.

The Duggars, as we all know, are conservative individuals.

Staunch ones at that, standing out among today's TV offerings, drawing many like-minded viewers. But their earnest, authentic way of life also has a broader appeal.

As more people watch 19 Kids and Counting online and their fame has grown due to social and traditional media, so has the criticism they face quite often.

The family's views on dating, courting, marriage and child-rearing are noteworthy enough, but they've also proven polarizing on political and religions grounds.

Yet another woman has come forward alleging that she was sexually abused by comedy legend Bill Cosby, thus bringing the total number of accusers to 18.

Hurd made the accusation in a lengthy post on her Facebook page:

  • Bill Cosby Image
  • Michelle Hurd Photo

"I wasn't going to say anything," Hurd writes. "But I can't believe some of the things I've been reading, so here is my personal experience."

"I did stand-in work on The Cosby Show back in the day and YES, Bill Cosby was VERY inappropriate with me."

Hurd goes on to describe how Cosby touched her inappropriately, invited her into his dressing room, and asked her to shower at his house.

Earlier this week, the cast of The Shawshank Redemption reunited in Hollywood for a 20th anniversary screening of the film.

A box office flop when it was first released in 1994, Shawshank has since earned its place on the short list of true modern cinematic classics.

Tim Robbins
The most recognizable Shawshank inmate at the time of the film's release, Robbin's performance as the wrongly-convicted Andy Dufresne has since become his signature role. In the years that followed he directed the acclaimed film Dead Man Walking, won an Academy Award for his performance in Mystic River, and established his place as one of Hollywood's most versatile talents.

Life-affirming but never cloying; heart-wrenching without being manipulative, Shawshank is one of those rare films whose appeal transcends generational boundaries and the demographic niches that usually determine a film's success.

No small feat for a film that features a murder and a rape scene in its first 20 minutes.

Yes, unlike other films that have survived as sentimental favorites, Shawshank is no family-friendly romp.

A tale of brutality and injustice of the highest order, Shawshank - like its protagonist in the film's thrilling climax - takes the hard road to an unexpectedly satisfying conclusion.

Earlier this week, new controversy bubbled up around The Today Show, as talk surfaced of Natalie Morales and Willie Geist being fired.

The rumor ended up being false and the hosts ended up joking about it, but the incident made us think back to the past six-plus decades of waking up each morning with Today.

It's been both a bumpy ride and a funny ride.

The Force Was With Them
Today anchors have always made headlines for their Halloween attire. But this 2009 Star Wars theme takes the creative cake.

Remember those Halloween costumes? Remember the time Tom Cruise WENT OFF on Matt Lauer?

Remember the London Olympic coverage and the Royal Wedding coverage and... the chimpanzee? Wait... WHAT?!?

Relive some of the most memorable moments on Today Show history via the above photo gallery and start to wonder: What will those crazy morning folks do next?!?

Kendall Jenner is featured in a national publication this week.

Unlike half-sister Kim Kardashian, however, she is fully clothed and balancing nary a single champagne bottle on her rear end.

Instead, the impressive 19-year old is profiled by The New York Times, which spoke to members of her team and executives at Estée Lauder about what has helped Kendall succeed in the competitive world of professional modeling.

"I think what's so exciting about her is that she has this social media influence along with a fashion credibility in a distinct way that speaks to millennials," says Jane Hertzmark Hudis, the global brand president of Estée Lauder.

Kendall, of course, recently signed on as the Estée Lauder spokesperson.

With the universe still abuzz over the controversial Kim Kardashian nude photos that grace the latest issue of Paper Magazine, Jennifer Aniston would like to butt in for a moment.

Speaking to Extra at the Hollywood premiere of Horrible Bosses 2, the actress had a message to send to the reality star:

I bared my butt first!

Call Me!
Don't worry, Jennifer Aniston. Following this spread in GQ, you'll be receiving non-stop calls from men around the world.

Indeed, few will ever forget Aniston's iconic Rolling Stone cover in 1996, which hit newsstands nearly 20 years before Kim bared all as some kind of gift to herself.

With critics calling for TLC to cancel her reality show, Michelle Duggar has launched a counter-petition to save 19 Kids and Counting from cancelation.

A Change (dot) org petition to cancel 19 Kids and Counting was actually started earlier this year, after Michelle made controversial headlines politically.

She allegedly recorded a robo-call allegedly asking Fayetteville, Ark. residents to vote to repeal a law that prevents discrimination. Yes, that prevents it.

The law in question condemns property and business owners to oust or fire people based on gender identity. In other words, transgender Americans.

Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar then sparked an even bigger public controversy this month when they invited fans to share kissing photos on Facebook.

After they reportedly took down submissions from gay couples, they faced backlash online, and the aforementioned petition began to widely circulate.

If you watched The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5 Episode 1 this week, then you know that Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin joined the cast and immediately declared their place as the poshest, prettiest couple on a show full of posh, pretty people.

Hamlin on Housewives was something of a surprise, as it was originally rumored that he wouldn't be participating in the show, because...ya know, he has a real career and all.

But it looks like Harry's on board after all, and we already have reason to believe he'll be involved in some serious Housewives-style drama.

You may remember this Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5 trailer. The Lisa RInna bug-out around the 1:30 mark stands out in particular:

Lisa can be heard to remark, "Don't you ever go after my husband!" before hurling a wineglass in the proud Housewives tradition. Now we might know what caused her to lose her cool:

Earlier this week, reports that John David Duggar is courting a "mystery brunette" had the Duggar family faithful preparing for another member of the famous family to be married off.

Now, however, it looks as though there is no chaste side-hugging romance in JDD's life, and to make matters worse, his parents insist on reminding the world that he's a 24-year-old virgin.

John David Duggar

"Just thought we'd set the record straight," Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar wrote on their blog today. "John David is not courting and not in a relationship...and he has never been in one! [He is] still looking and waiting for the right one."

JD, bro - you're 24! The right one is anyone and the right time is now!

We kid! The Duggars have their own courtship process and it seems to be working for them so far. And from the sound of things, John shouldn't have anything to worry about, in terms of finding a mate:
