As another amazing year in pop culture comes to a close, we want to celebrate our very favorite moments! We bring you the OK! Awards. Nominations — and arguments — from our staff are below. We will be posting the nominations for a different category all week, and we want you to vote for your favorites. Winners* will be announced Tuesday, Jan. 1.
Category 10: Most Cringe-Worthy Reality TV Moment
1) Any moment on Real Housewives of New Jersey
Nominated by: Dee Clarke, West Coast Editor and Lauren Brown, Site Director
Dee says: "Seriously, any moment. It was a hot mess this season!"
Lauren says: "There wasn't one moment of Teresa Giudice vs. all her RHONJ castmates (particularly her sister-in-law [Melissa Gorga] and brother [Joe Gorga] that didn't make me feel really uncomfortable. During some scenes, I felt like I should change the channel because things were getting too personal — even for a reality show!"
2) Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion
Nominated by: Lauren Metz, Writer
Lauren says: "Watching families fight like that is just heartbreaking."
3) Reza's big annoucement on Shahs of Sunset
Nominated by: Kelli Acciardo, Deputy Editor
Kelli says: "Definitely Reza [Farahan] announcing that he and MJ have had sex multiple times in the past! WHAT?!"
Nominated by: Laura Sassano, Writer
Laura says: "It was all the way back in January, but I remember it too well! I love Lisa and seeing Cedric turn up uninvited at one of her fabulous parties after all the lies he told her was awful — still more awful was how she tried to maintain her class while tossing him out. It made me feel for her even more!"
