Let’s face it, 2011 had its ups and downs.  All in all it was a good year, don’t you think?  So as the year draws to an end and we begin our countdown to the new year, we revisit some of the entertainment highlights and guilty pleasures of 2011.

1         Farewell to Oprah:  The Queen of daytime television said farewell after 25 years.  We love Oprah and don’t think anyone could ever fill her shoes.   Sure there’s ‘The Talk and The Wendy Williams Show’ but it’s not the same, sorry ladies.

2         The world stood still for the Royal Wedding – The Duke and Duchess’s Royal Wedding was beautiful, and who can forget Kate Middleton’s dress –  we hear there might be a little one on the way too.

3         From ‘Made in Chelsea’ to ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’, ‘The Braxtons Family Values’ to ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ – love it or hate it, this is the reality television generation and reality TV is one of our guilty pleasures!  We wonder what 2012 holds, ‘Made in Brixton’ or ‘The Real Housewives of Chelsea’.

4         The ‘KK’ wedding was another guilty pleasure of 2012.  Kim Kardashian finally walked down the aisle and married Kris Humphries after 6 months of dating.   It’s a shame the marriage lasted less than 3 months – a word to the wise, don’t rush down the aisle!

5         The return of ‘Sister Sister’ – well not quite but the twins, Tia Mowry Hardrict and Tamera Mowry Housley came back to our screens with their reality show, ‘Tia and Tamera’.  They are both married, Tia is now a mother and Tamera is getting into the hang of being a wife.  Season one was enjoyable, we can’t wait to see the season two.
