And You Thought Your 'Rents Were Bad: 15 Goofy Celeb Parent Moments

Oh, boy.

Whenever I went out with my folks, there was always something that irked my about the way they dressed (my dad’s suspenders-with-denim-shorts look) or how they would carry themselves in public (like my mom’s outdoor voice “whisper”), but now that I think about it, they weren’t all that bad. I mean, it’s not like they jumped on couches on national television or wore a vile of blood around their neck to proclaim their love for another.

I mean, sure there are things that our own parents embarrass us with (or even how we conduct ourselves that probably embarrass our kids), but it’s not like we’ve ever appeared on an episode of the Jersey Shore doing a cartwheel sans panties or flipped a table on someone and then have the entire country talk about it for weeks to come. As we all know, celebrities have done some pretty embarrassing and awkward things on camera and at least we can breathe a sigh of relief that we’re not nearly as crazy as they are.

Check out our photo gallery and 15 celebrities including Angelina Jolie, Jessica Simpson, and Britney Spears who are probably going to block their children from ever Googling their names in the future with these stunts they’ve pulled.

  • Jessica Simpson 1 of 15
    Jessica Simpson
    Before Eric Johnson, there was this guy named Nick Lachey that used to be married to Jessica Simpson. During their marriage, they had a successful reality television show called "Newlyweds" on MTV where Jessica had one or two (or three) blonde moments during every episode, with one of her best ones being her utter confusion over Chicken of the Sea and whether it was real tuna. Ahh, those were the days. And we still love Jessica, by the way.

  • Snooki 2 of 15
    Where do I even begin? For Snooki's most embarrassing moments, you're just going to have to watch a marathon of all five seasons of the "Jersey Shore" beginning from that very first episode where she tried to make out with all of her roommates in a hot tub. Oh, and those pickles.

    Oh Mel, where do we even start? Poor Lucia is one day probably going to hear al of those not-so-nice voicemails you left for her mother, Oksana Grigowhatever. Hopefully you've learned to just hang up whenever an answering machine picks up, just like the rest of us.

    Sure, she might look like this right now, but Angelina Jolie didn't always look like she had a glowing halo on top of her head while trying to save the world by visiting one war-stricken country at a time. Before Brad, Maddox, Zahara, Shiloh, Pax, Knox, and Vivienne, there was Billy Bob Thornton, a vile of blood she would wear around her neck and all those gross PDA's on the red carpet. And that's part of the reason why Brad and Angie's kids can't google their parents' names on the internet!

    Teresa Giudice
    We all remember how Teresa famously flipped a table on her "Real Housewives of New Jersey" co-star Danielle Staub during season one. Unfortunately though, everyone in her family, including her daughters, had to witness this, too. Good thing Teresa is finally turning all her wrongs into rights.

    Do I even need a caption?

    Kim Zolciak
    Kim Zolciak talked about circumsizing her newborn son on national television. Isn't there anything that's left for a family's privacy anymore?

    While there is a side of Pammy that I love (volunteering to be a cross-guard at her sons' school and tutoring kids with their math homework), there's another side that we've all seen and might have even downloaded from the internet. Let's just hope her two boys never see that!

    Charlie Sheen
    Winning has become the new losing, apparently. But thank goodness Charlie Sheen is now back on track after his epic 2011 meltdown which ultimately saw him lose his winning gig on "Two and a Half Men." Charlie's got 5 kids that hopefully will never have to witness that type of behavior from their father again.

  • Tiger Woods 10 of 15
    Tiger Woods
    A week before Thanksgiving, 2009. A golf club, an Escalade, a big tree and a really ticked off Swedish model-turned-nanny-tuned-richest-divorcee to ever bulldoze a mansion with her ex-husband's money. And the rest, as we know, is history.

  • Ashlee Simpson 11 of 15
    Ashlee Simpson
    Remember how Ashlee mimed her way through a performance on Saturday Night Live and then did a little jig dance when she was caught doing so on live tv? Yeah, she wishes you didn't. Let's hope Bronx never gets to see his mom's embarrassing moves, either.

  • Britney Spears 12 of 15
    Britney Spears
    The head shaving. The 55-hour marriage and annulment. Chasing the paparazzi with an umbrella. Melting down and locking herself in the bathroom with one of her sons. Visiting gas station bathrooms barefoot. All I have to say is thank goodness that chapter of Britney's life is forever closed.

    Not only are Emme and Max are going to wish their mother never took this picture, but so is Jennifer when she finally breaks up with her boy toy, Casper Smart.

    Yeah, Suri Cruise is never going to forgive her father for this one, even if it happened way before she was even born.

    Kate Gosselin
    Ahh, where do I even start? I don't know about you, but if one of my parents danced the way Kate danced while on Dancing with the Stars I would never be able to turn on a television set ever again in my life. There's a good chance that Kate was probably one of the worst dancers to ever compete on the show.
