There were so many celebrity scandals this year, it was hard to keep up. It seemed like every day someone cheated, someone broke the law, someone said something racist, and someone posted something cryptic on Instagram before quickly deleting it.

While it was hard to keep up, there are definitely a few scandals that stand out in our minds. For those into celebrity gossip, this was a year in which we sat back, passed the popcorn, and watched with glee as it all went down.

Prince Andrew And His Friendship With Jeffrey Epstein

It's the darkest time the royal family has been through since the "annus horribilis" of 1992, and I'm not talking about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

No, this was a scandal far worse. It appeared the royals tried to sweep the story under the rug when it first came out that Prince Andrew had had a friendship with pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

But, when Virginia Giuffre (Roberts) came out and claimed Prince Andrew has slept with her when she was only 17, things spun out of control.

Prince Andrew gave a dumpster fire interview for the BBC, was unceremoniously fired from royal duties, and should really live out the rest of his life in exile (if only we could get his ex-wife to stop talking.)

Lori Loughlin And Operation Varsity Blues

This year, Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman found themselves being investigated by the FBI, along with 33 other parents.

It was alleged that Lori paid a well-connected man named William Singer to falsely claim her daughters were athletic recruits in order to get into university, while Felicity Huffman paid to have her daughter's test scores falsified.

Felicity (quite smartly) plead guilty and went to prison for 11 days, however, Lori rejected the initial plea deal and now could face up to 45 years in prison, along with her husband.

Hindsight is 20/20, am I right Lori?

Jed Had A Girlfriend!

Bachelor Nation was surprised by the drama that went down when Arie Luyendyk Jr. dumped his initial winner Becca and went back to runner-up Lauren Burnham. However, they were downright shocked at what happened on the season finale of Hannah Brown's season of The Bachelorette.

After Hannah chose singer Jed Wyatt as her winner, it came out after filming that he went on the show with a girlfriend, and was only in it to promote his singing career. Ouch!

While sitting on the infamous couch during the live finale, Hannah told viewers the couple had broken up.

Though she didn't seem to down about it, as she asked her runner-up Tyler Cameron for a date! Apparently, this show is just like Tinder in real life.

Taylor Swift Vs. Scooter Braun

In June, it was reported that a deal worth hundreds of millions of dollars went down between Taylor Swift's lable Big Machine Records and Scooter Braun. Apparently, Scooter acquired all the rights to Taylor's past music before her recent album "Lover."

Taylor did not take this lightly however, writing a long post to her fans on Tumblr which resulted in Scooter receiving death threats from Swifties.

Many celebrities chimed in, and it has gone down as one of Taylor's biggest feuds (though, admittedly, the list is quite long.)

What a year it has been! Those of us who eat up celebrity gossip like it's the last slice of pizza are wholeheartedly looking forward to 2020.
