By Joanne Rosa

It went down in 2017. From epic celebrity battles to hot hollywood romances, here are our Top 10 favorite moments from 2017.

J-Rod’s Love

Alex Rodriguez & Jennifer Lopez at Met Gala

The romantic side of us is melting over this dreamy couple. America is head over heels in love with Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez! The power couple made their official public debut at the MET Gala in May, and we’ve been falling in love with them ever since.

They aren’t shy about showing the world their love. It just might be our favorite love story of all time. Maybe an engagement isn’t that far off?!

Beyoncé’s Twins

Beyoncé literally broke the internet with her pregnancy announcement. It received over 11 million likes after just 12 hours. It’s no wonder it was the most liked picture on Instagram this year!

Rumi and Sir Carter were born on June 13th, and Rumi was born first. The new year better bring in a full family photo!

A post shared by Cardi B Official IG (@iamcardib) on

Cardi B worked hard to make her dreams come true. On September 25, Cardi B reached #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 list with her hit song “Bodak Yellow.” If you want to be like Cardi, we suggest you listen to her words of wisdom.

Mariah Carey Suing Her Ex

Mariah Carey Performs At The O2 Arena

Mariah Carey and James Packer got engaged and split in 2016, but Mariah quietly made millions off of her breakup in 2017. Oh yes. Mariah Carey and James Packer decided things weren’t going to workout, and Mariah allegedly sought a $50 million inconvenience fee.

She didn’t get that, but this year she did get to keep the $15 million engagement ring, and reportedly received a cash settlement.

Now, Mariah wears the ring on her middle finger.

Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl Performance

Lady Gaga at Pepsi Zero Sugar Super Bowl LI Halftime Show

Lady Gaga checked performing at the Super Bowl off of her bucket list. This was one of Gaga’s dreams come true. She descended from the top of the stadium and put on a show that will go down in halftime history.

The performance was in true Gaga style. Justin Timberlake has some big shoes to fill for the 2018 halftime show.

Jay-Z Dropped “4:44” Album

Jay-Z 4:44 Tour - Brooklyn

Jay-Z dropped his 13th studio album “4:44” on June 30. Jay-Z essentially admits he cheated on Beyoncé in his album with lyrics like, “”Look, I apologize/ Often womanize/ Took for my child to be born to see through a woman’s eyes.”

Tiffany Haddish Makes SNL History

Tiffany Haddish Saturday Night Live - Season 43

When we heard Tiffany Haddish was going to be the first black female stand-up comic to host “Saturday Night Live,” we were genuinely shocked.

On November 11, Tiffany made SNL history. She also wore the same $4,000 Alexander McQueen dress that she wore to the “Girl’s Trip” premiere in 2017. She slayed both times. She is our kind of people!

Meghan Markle Got Engaged to Prince Harry

Announcement Of Prince Harry's Engagement To Meghan Markle

The prince is down with the swirl! America will have their very own princess, and she’s everything we’ve ever wanted for the royal family. Prince Harry popped the question to Meghan in early November. Meghan will be known as the Duchess of Sussex. Even if she won’t be a technical princess, Meghan will always be America’s princess. She is the girl from LA that was swept away by British royalty. This is our modern day Cinderella, people.

The wedding is set for May 19, 2018, and will take place at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Remy Ma Dressed for the Services


Remy Ma stopped by the Wendy Show this year to dish about her feud with Nicki Minaj, and show the world that she is the queen of petty.

The best part of the interview is when everyone realized she was dressed to for a funeral. “My Grandma told me to never speak ill of the dead.”

“The Wendy Williams Show” Celebrated 1,500 Episodes

A post shared by Wendy Williams (@wendyshow) on

Seriously, 1,500 episodes, and 1,500 “how you doin'”s. Wendy celebrated this rare achievement on November 13 with friend to the show Remy Ma, and took a look back at her favorite moments from the show.

We couldn’t have done it without our fabulous Wendy Watchers. We love you for watching!
