2010 Year in Entertainment

2010 was a big year for our stars, with more highs—like Sofia Vergara's Emmy and Golden Globe nods—and lows—like the breakup of Eva Longoria's marriage. But one thing is for sure, our entertainers have grabbed the spotlight all year long, and we look forward to seeing what happens in 2011!

3. 2010 Year in Entertainment: Weddings

Till Death Do us Part — Hollywood Edition

2010 was the year that Latina celebs said “I do” to getting married — and they all picked the same weekend to get hitched!

On July 12, La La Vasquez wed Denver Nuggets star, Carmelo Anthony at Cipriani Restaurant in New York City. That wedding took place on the same weekend that Penelope Cruz married Javier Bardem in the Bahamas. On October 10th, Spy Kids actress Alexa Vega tied the knot with her fiancé Sean Covel in Lead, South Dakota, and the very next day, actress Odette Yustman said "I do" to her boyfriend of two years, Brothers & Sisters star, Dave Annable, in Ojai, California. Finally, December 12th was the day that Nicole Richie married her longtime boyfriend, Joel Madden at her dad, Lionel Richie's Los Angeles estate, but Nicole wasn't the only Latina celeb getting married that day — on the East Coast, Better With You star, JoAnna Garcia was having her own magical beach wedding to New York Yankees outfielder, Nick Swisher at the Breakers Hotel & Resort in Palm Beach, Florida.

 

 

 

4. 2010 Year in Entertainment: Divorces

High INfidelity

Without a doubt 2010 was the year for Latina celeb weddings, but it was also, unfortunately, the year many celebs split up. Christina Millian' divorce  from producer, The-Dream, was the first big breakup of the year when it was first reported in February, but that was only the beginning. In September, Ann Lopez filed for divorce from comedian George Lopez after 17 years of marriage! Christina Aguilera also called it quits with her husband of seven years, Jordan Bratman in October, citing the usual "irreconcilable differences," as the reason for the split. And on November 17th, the biggest divorce story of the year broke when Desperate Housewives star, Eva Longoria filed for divorce from her husband of three years, Tony Parker, after finding hundreds of text messages from another woman on his phone.

6. 2010 Year in Entertainment: Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato's Breakdown

In early November, singer-actress Demi Lovato shocked the world when she decided to leave the Jonas Brothers World Tour early to enter medical treatment "for emotional and physical issues." Before the news broke, everyone had associated Demi with Disney and she had a clean cut image as an adorable teen star of popular Disney Channel movies like Princess Protection Program and Camp Rock. As the story of Demi's rehab stint unfolded, the world found out that Demi has struggled with self-mutilation and eating disorders for several years. We also learned that the star had a physical altercation with a backup dancer on an airplane and that the fight was the reason she decided to check herslef into rehab. "Afterwards, Demi felt awful about her behavior and realized she needed to take personal responsibility for it," said a source. "Because of this, and because of the battles Demi has fought throughout her life, both she and her family realized she needed to take steps to get help immediately." Demi recently settled out of court with Alex Welch, the backup dancer whom she allegedly attacked last month. She recently spent Christmas day out of rehab with her family. 

 

7. 2010 Year in Entertainment: Ricky Martin

Out & Proud

On March 29, 2010, Ricky Martin announced to the world on his website, rickymartinmusic.com that he is a "fortunate homosexual man," and explained why he had, up to that point, been quiet about his sexual orientation. "A few months ago I decided to write my memoirs, a project I knew was going to bring me closer to an amazing turning point in my life. From the moment I wrote the first phrase I was sure the book was the tool that was going to help me free myself from things I was carrying within me for a long time." While promoting his memoir, Me, Ricky made the talk show rounds, even appearing on Oprah for a revealing interview about his experience coming out, and how he's now fully embracing being gay. Ricky, who revealed he’s in an “amazing” relationship right now, didn’t seem to regret much, except one thing: “If I knew how amazing it was going to feel [to come out], trust me, I would have done this 10 years ago.”

 

8. 2010 Year in Entertainment: Zoe Saldana

In October, when Entertainment Weekly released their list of the 40 Highest Grossing Stars Under 40, we weren't surprised to see that Zoe Saldana had made the list at #9. The talented Dominican actress has had 9 lead roles on the big screen to date, including starring roles in two of the biggest sci-fi franchises of all time—as Neytiri in Avatar and Uhura in Star Trek.The 32-year-old Dominicana's films average a whopping $132.3 million dollars (that's some serious bank!).

11. 2010 Year in Entertainment: Pregnancies

Baby Bumps

A few of our favorite stars got pregnant this year. On October 28, we reported that 40-year-old singer, Mariah Carey was pregnant with her first child. We were thrilled for Mimi, especially since she had suffered a miscarriage following her April 2008 wedding to hubby Nick Cannon that had her crying herself to sleep. Mimi has said that despite her struggles to get pregnant, she and Nick never gave up on their dream of having a child. She explained that she began taking progesterone, a hormone that helps maintain pregnancy in women susceptible to miscarriage. Nick even revealed that Mariah used once-a-day acupuncture “all over her body,” to help get rid of stress. When Mariah finally got pregnant, “it was priceless,” said Nick. “We definitely cried. We still cry all the time. It’s an emotional journey.”

On September 14, Penélope Cruz's rep officially confirmed that the 36-year-old Spanish actress is expecting a baby with her new hubby, Javier Bardem, 41! "Penélope is 4 and 1/2 months pregnant," Cruz's rep told Latina.com.The Oscar winning couple married this past July in an intimate ceremony at a friend's house in the Bahamas attended only by an intimate group of family members. This will be the first child for Bardem and Cruz.
