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 attention-seeking, naked Celebrity Sex Tape Stars at #5. Now, without delay, we present Celebrity of the Year finalist #4 â€¦ Busty British Babes!
The past 12 months have seen at least that many pairs of giant boobs cross the Atlantic and get the attention of entertainment news outlets. They've belonged to a series of British models, none of whom appear to have discernible skills outside of the ability to remove their shirts when a camera is on.
It started in January with Keeley Hazell (above) and her sex tape leak.
Unlike other dishonest amateur porn stars, however, this model wasn't afraid to admit she was in on the release. This must have inspired other large breasted Englishwomen to realize the potential of getting naked in public, as Michelle Marsh and Lucy Pinder were soon flashing their chests in every magazine they could find.
From there, Katie Price became a household name. Although that name was often "Jordan," the modeling moniker she goes by for no apparent reason. Finally, Gemma Atkinson came on the scene and, well, also bared her body in various publications.
Indeed, these busty British babes of 2007 weren't very different from one another, but perhaps it was this similarity that earned them our respect.
Unlike American celebrities who think they possess actual skills - yes, we're looking at you Kim Kardashian and Heidi Montag - the Brits are simple people. They're real people, honest people.
They merely say, as Lucy Pinder is in the photo above: I have a big chest and I would like to earn money for showing it off. They don't try to be anything they're not. And for that Keeley, Lucy, Gemma and company, we salute you.
