As 2022 comes to an end, the year has been with many news and scandals from the lives of celebrities in the United States. Of course, these celebrity surprises and scandals give fans something to talk about throughout the 12 months of the year. 

It may be a simulation to have one celebrity moment each month of the year, from Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the beginning of the year to fans discovering one of the Kardashians doesn't know how to cut a cucumber. Other celebrity events in 2022 were even more serious such as cheating scandals between actors and singers. 

With 2023 yet to start, there are still speculations on how the next year will be and the topics that will keep fans of pop culture talking. For now, you will be reading the top 12 celebrity moments that happened in 2022.

Kendall Jenner Can't Cut Cucumber 

Fans found shockingly that one of the Kardashians didn't know how to cut something as simple as a cucumber. During an episode of the controversial show "Keeping up with the Kardashians, " Jenner tried to cut a cucumber but failed woefully at it.

Her mother had to call on the chef mid-way in the show to cut the cucumber for her. Fans thought she might not even know how to cook food in her home. Others wondered how spoiled the Kardashians were. 

Kim Kardashian Wears Marilyn Monroe's Dress

The Kardashians are always on the news, often not for the most pleasing reasons. Fans conversant with the Kardashians might find it rare to find any time they made it to the news for the right reasons. In this case, Kim Kardashian wore Marilyn Monroe's dress to the Met Gala.

Another funny and controversial event in the life of Hollywood entertainment celebrities was when the news of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez's engagement broke out. The two celebrities had broken up in the past after having long years of relationship and marriage.

Khloe Kardashian has Another Child for Tristan Thompson

Another Kardashian made it to the news again after welcoming a second child with Tristan Thompson. Khloe Kardashian was with Tristan Thompson in a weird relationship before he cheated on her two times in a row.

Ned From the Try Guys Cheats with an Employee

It would even worsen during the year when fans learned that Ned, a member of a content creation group called the Try Guys, cheated on his wife. The worst thing about this news was that it wasn't just anybody; it was a cheating scandal that involved Ned and the employee of the company he co-owned.
