There's nothing like a good celebrity feud.

Sure, we all go through bad breakups, say things we wish we could take back and argue with others, but when the stars do it, it's so much more interesting!

As the year winds down, we've examined 2010's top celebrity mistresses and sex tapes. Now, THG takes a look at the year's 10 best celebrity spats here ...

10. Brett Favre vs. Jenn Sterger    

In a classic he said/she said deal, a former Jets reporter alleged sexual harassment by the NFL legend, who says he was just hollering. Perhaps. Some say the biggest crime was thinking Brett Favre's small junk was going to impress somebody.

9. Sarah Palin vs. PETA

We'd rank Sarah Palin higher, but public wars of words lose some of their edge when you go out of your way to start them. Still, her exchange with PETA over hunting was classic. Bristol Palin and Willow Palin had some good ones, too.

8. Kid Rock vs. Steven Tyler

The former called the latter's hiring by American Idol "the stupidest thing he's ever done in his life" and termed him "an idiot" for good measure. The Aerosmith rocker responded that Kid is "just jealous." Not sure about that one, Steve.

When they go to the polls today, Keith Olbermann and Jon Stewart will likely vote for many of the same candidates.

But these two commentators don't see eye-to-eye on the roll of cable news in society. At his Rally to Restore Sanity, The Daily Show host lambasted Fox News, MSNBC and all 24-hour news stations for their role in today's climate of anger and intolerance, saying:

"If we amplify everything, we hear nothing. The press is our immune system. If it overreacts to everything, we eventually get sicker."

Keith Olbermann vs. Stewart

These and other criticisms of his vocation prompted the following Tweets in response from Olbermann:

It wasn't a big shark but Jon Stewart jumped one just now with the ‘everybody on Thr cable is the same’ naiveté. The America before today's cable wasn't reasonable discussion. It was the 1-sided lockstep of Fox and people afraid of Fox. That got us Iraq.

It was titled the Rally to Restore Sanity, but it might as well have been called The Rally to Gather Together an Incredible Number of People and Bash the Heck Out of Cable News.

Indeed, in Washington D.C. on Saturday, Jon Stewart hosted an event that featured 250,000 attendees; performances by The Roots, Kid Rock and John Legend; remained entirely apolitical; and skewered the media for creating an environment of anger and intolerance.

While most of the Stewart's roll in the rally was filled with satire and clips of how the media caters to raising the fear levels of society's most ignorant, The Daily News host concluded the festivities with a heartfelt speech that included:

When the most influential man in the world speaks, people take notice. Especially when he interviews the President of the United States on Comedy Central!

If people assumed Jon Stewart would treat us to a Barack Obama love-fest during a chat with the Commander-in-Chief last night, it wasn't entirely the case.

Smooth as ever, Obama discussed how things have progressed nicely the last two years, with health care and financial reform marking huge, historic steps.

The economy is (slowly) rebounding, too, he said. If Tea Party stalwarts were watching (as likely as seeing Charlie Sheen in church), they'd be up in arms.

Whether you buy what he's selling or not, Obama played the serious guy on the funny network, something he's done approximately 4,596 times before.

If anyone morphed a bit Wednesday it was Stewart, just days before his Rally to Restore Sanity. Gone were his droll one-liners and trademark sarcasm.

What we saw was presidential interviewer, taking the moment seriously, asking serious questions, even calling the U.S. President "timid" at one point.

Watch Obama on the Daily Show after the jump ...

Days before he hosts a Rally to Restore Sanity in the nation's capital, Jon Stewart has been honored as the most influential man of 2010.

"Despite his innumerable enemies, Stewart's acerbic take on the madness around him continues to draw audiences who look to the funnyman as a voice of reason," wrote AskMen, the website that conducted this survey. "Stewart's show was once dubbed the 'fake news,' but these days it's become our youths' most trusted source of information."

Rounding out the top five in the poll: Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs and Kanye West. President Barack Obama? All the way down at number-21. Ouch. Writes the site:

It looks like we can put an end to Anchorgate.

A few days after Rick Sanchez went off on Jewish people and referred to Jon Stewart as a bigot, and about 24 hours after Stewart called out the media for how it portrayed his response, the former CNN newsman has apologized.

Rick Sanchez and Jon Stewart

Of her husband, Suzanne Sanchez wrote the following on Facebook this afternoon:

"rick apologized to jon stewart today. they had a good talk. jon was gracious and called rick "thin-skinned." he's right. rick feels horrible that in an effort to make a broader point about the media, his exhaustion from working 14 hr days for 2 mo. straight, caused him to mangle his thought process inartfully."

Phew. Now that this is over, we can return to a topic those on the right and the left can all agree on: the mocking of senatorial candidate whose platform is: I'm not a witch and I'm not perfect.

Those tuning in to The Daily Show last night, hoping to see Jon Stewart slam Rick Sanchez for going off on a Jewish-controlled media, may have been disappointed.

The host instead turned his humorous venom on the media itself.

Stewart mocked reputable news outlets that claimed he "destroyed" Sanchez at an autism charity event over the weekend (for the record, THG simply said he "poked fun" at the former CNN anchor), saying: "Any headline from that benefit should have read, 'Comedians raise $3 million for autism while demonstrating incredible self-restraint about Rick Sanchez.'"

Watch the segment below, as Stewart clearly understands that Sanchez's rant was simply the result of a frustrated man, knowing he was about to get fired...

Late last week, Rick Sanchez got fired by CNN - and then got fired at by Jon Stewart.

The news anchor first went off on The Daily Show host in a radio interview on Friday, actually referring to Stewart as a "bigot" and also strongly implying that the media is controlled by Jews. Read excerpts of Sanchez's ill-advised rant HERE.

Sanchez, Stewart

In response, Stewart took to the stage Saturday night at Comedy Central's "Night Of Too Many Stars" and talked about how people should donate to autism education, for which the show raised money, saying:

"If you went on radio and said the Jews control the media... you may want to hold on to your money."

Rick Sanchez does not like Jon Stewart at all. He also has no clue what the word "bigot" means. Allow us to explain.

The CNN anchor appeared today on the Sirius radio show Stand Up! with Pete Dominick. Asked about Stewart, who is in the news these days for his planned Rally to Restore Sanity, Sanchez replied simply: "I think Jon Stewart’s a bigot."

Could you elaborate, Rick?

"I think he looks at the world through, his mom, who was a school teacher, and his dad, who was a physicist or something like that. Great, I’m so happy that he grew up in a suburban middle class New Jersey home with everything you could ever imagine."

Okay. Thanks for that bio. But you do understand that one must be bigoted against a certain group, right? Keep explaining yourself, please: Who is Stewart biased against?

Glenn Beck might make Michael Lohan look like a mentally stable individual, but the Fox News host at least understands good public relations.

The conservative commentator made his first statement regarding Jon Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity this week, likely aware that any negative sentiments would run counter his platform of freedom in America.

Glenn Beck and Jon Stewart: Who will you rally behind?

Referring to his Restoring Honor event August 28, Beck said:

"8/28 was a historic event for a lot of Americans. I hope that Ed Schultz, the AFL-CIO, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and whoever else wants to plan a march in DC have the same great success that we had with Restoring Honor."

So far, so good for Stewart and company. While it's silly to base too much on Facebook responses, the Rally to Restore Sanity has received close to 100,000 positive RSVPs on its Facebook page in less than a week.
