Lady Gaga
What an amazing year it's been for Lady Gaga! With hit after hit after hit, a World Tour that brought her to the HP Pavilion in San Jose on August 16th, it's no wonder this entertainer had a hot year as both a popular and as a controversial figure in music and in her politically-charged stunts! Like wearing a dress made out of meat (Yes, that's raw meat)!

Courteney Cox and David Arquette
After 11 years of marriage, Courteney Cox and David Arquette have separated. The two still remain the best of friends and keep as responsible parents to their daughter, 6-year-old daughter, Coco Riley Arquette. They do still love each other deeply, but have established for each other during this separation they can better understand each other and individually. Courteney and David wed on June 12, 1999 in San Francisco's Grace Cathedral. In July 2010, while on the set Wes Craven’s highly anticipated sequel ‘Scream 4,’ Courteney gushed to Entertainment Tonight about their first meeting. “I can remember the day I met him like it was yesterday,” said Courteney, who credited Wes as “really instrumental” in bringing them together. “‘Scream’ 1 was really an intense crush and all that stuff, and ‘Scream 2′ we didn’t get along so well, and then ‘Scream 3′ we had just gotten married, and then ‘Scream 4′ we have [our six-year-old daughter] Coco, so it’s just been an evolution of things that have happened to us.” We will see what 2011 has in store for the separated couple. For now, they remain, 'Friends'.

Exotic Erotic Ball
The Exotic Erotic Ball and Expo, a three-decade old annual Bay Area celebration of eroticism often billed by organizers as “The Wildest Party on Earth,” was abruptly canceled for 2010 – just 24 hours before the event was scheduled to be held. Perry Mann, the creator and long-time host of the event, made the announcement Friday in a post to EEB’s official website. It provided no other details, but said further information would be forthcoming. Many attendees of the EEB came to the event in wildly elaborate and creative, sexually-themed costumes to compete in the annual “Best Costume” contest – which typically awards the winner with prize money and merchandise in the $10,000 range. The possibilities of EEB revamping in 2011 remains up in the air.
