Cape Town - The year 2011 was definitely a year filled with drama, some nudity and, yes, even more drama.

If it wasn't the naked newsreaders on; it was Tracy McGregor bearing all on the cover of the first Playboy SA edition.

She may not have been the centre of the event, but the tears of the three-year-old royal bridesmaid to Prince William and Kate Middleton made big waves, as did the dramatic wedding of Charlene Wittstock and Prince Albert of Monaco.

5FM shock jock Gareth Cliff is never one to shy away from the limelight, and his nasty comments on Idols raised the ire of the ANYL. But it was radio DJ and former Supersport presenter Darren Scott calling a co-worker something that cannot be repeated here who made the bigger headlines.

Celeb nudity, madness and sadness ruled our 2011.

    It amazes me that such drivel makes the top 10 stories of 2011. In the real world we had a devastating Tsunami, the death of Gaddafi, OWS, an upcoming economic crises, to mention only a few. Sad unconscious masses.

    Surely these cannot be the top stories of 2011 - maybe top GOSSIP but DEFINITELY mostly not even newsworthy!!!!! Maybe an indication of the SHALLOWNESS of most readers on this news channel.
