What Is the Most Shocking Sex Scandal of 2009?

The year in sex scandals started off quietly, but Spring heated up to Summer and secret affairs started to sweat. In May, Jon Gosselin went from doting dad to cheating husband — what he became in the months that followed is a whole other category! Then topless photos of Miss California, Carrie Prejean, surfaced and put her into the spotlight long enough to be dethroned, though not officially for the photos. Only a week later, our attention was diverted to South Carolina where state officials were posting fliers for its lost governor, Mark Sanford. He was in Argentina with his lover. Always the last place you look! Over in Italy, Prime Minister Berlusconi confessed he was "no saint."

Eric Dane got in on the beauty-queen drama when a naked tape appeared of him, his wife Rebecca Gayheart, and former Miss Teen USA Kari Ann Peniche. And David Letterman and ESPN sports analyst Steve Phillips got caught working one too many late nights. We thought the year in scandal was over until Tiger Woods crashed his car into a fire hydrant near his home last week, allegedly after a fight with his wife over an affair. And now at least two women have come forward to say they played a round or two with Tiger. Rwwwar!
