As 2007 draws to a close, it's time to reflect and pay tribute to the stars who made this a year to remember. On that note, The Hollywood Gossip is announcing its 10 finalists for its first annual Celebrity of the Year award.
They've given us their best, their worst and, in a more than a few cases, their naked pictures. Now it is time for us to give a little something back with this special feature, because without these celebrities, we are nothing.
We previously profiled promiscuous drug addict Lindsay Lohan at #3. Now, without further delay, we present Celebrity of the Year finalist #2 â€¦ Kim Kardashian!
In 2007, Kardashian proved just how far a giant pair of boobs, large rear end and penchant for the spotlight can take a young lady born into millions of dollars.
The Hollywood Gossip staff had never even heard of this socialite 12 months ago, but a Ray J sex tape, Playboy pictorial and reality TV show later, and Kim Kardashian sits (or straddles, really) atop the celebrity gossip world.
She's even left former best friend Paris Hilton in the dust.
Kim has also sexed up her share of male suitors this year. Kardashian ditched Ray J soon after the aforementioned video hit the street, and others such as Reggie Bush and J.R. Rotem are certainly grateful that she did.
Just one spot away from earning our Celebrity of the Year honors, Kim's reality series, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, has been picked up for a second season.
She may need to shave her head and pop out a pair of kids she subsequently ignores in order to be #1 in our 2008 rankings, but we wouldn't put anything past Kim.
Especially not a large black penis.
