  • Ultimate Scandal 1

    Kristen Stewart

    It was the embrace seen around the world. When US Weekly published photos of "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart having an affair with her married "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders, the fans, known as "TwiHards," were shocked and dismayed. Stewart had been dating her "Twilight" co-star, Robert Pattinson, for three years (although neither of them officially confirmed their status) when photos of her and Sanders locked in a passionate embrace were released. Pattinson was said to be "beyond devastated" while Stewart released an apology saying "I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry." It remains to be seen whether the former golden couple will be able to work through this rough patch or whether they will split up for good.

  • Ultimate Scandal 2

    Bev Oda

    During a conference on immunization of poor children in London, Conservative MP Bev Oda refused to stay in the conference hotel, instead staying at the Posh Savoy Hotel at a cost of $664 per night. She also ordered orange juice at the cost of $16 a glass and hired a limousine to taxi her between the conference and her hotel. After the story broke, other examples of Oda's gold-plated spending habits emerged, and she resigned her seat at the end of July.

  • Ultimate Scandal 3

    Sandusky and the fall of Penn State

    Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky ruined the lives of young men by sexually abusing them. Once Sandusky's sordid secrets were revealed, the leaders of the university, the Nittany Lions football program and the legend of head coach Joe Paterno were also destroyed.

  • Ultimate Scandal 4

    LIBOR rate rigging

    Some have called it "the Wall Street scandal of all scandals." More than a dozen banks are now under investigation by U.S. regulators over alleged rigging of the London interbank offered rate (Libor). This rate affects what banks, businesses and consumers pay to borrow money and is used to price trillions of dollars worth of financial products, including mortgages, student loans and lines of credit. The scandal has already brought down top executives at British-based Barclays, which was fined US$453 million as a result, and the Royal Bank of Scotland is currently being probed for its role in the scandal along with other banks in the UK, U.S. and Canada. Stay tuned for possible criminal charges as regulators in the U.S. and Britain iron out the complexities of one of the biggest scandals to ever hit banking.
