Celebrities New Years Resolutions For 2011: Did They Keep Them? (Photos)

Did Kate Gosselin go on a manhunt in 2011?

From Kate Gosselin to Britney Spears to Christina Aguilera, everybody wanted to resolve to live a much better 2011 than they did in 2010.

Some celebrities wanted to find a new love interest in their life while others wanted to basically stop working so much, have more fun and spend time with their families.

Some celebrity resolutions were just plain ridiculous if they only knew what was in store for them in the New Year!

Let’s look back at some New Year’s resolutions from our favorite celebrity parents to see if they’ve kept their word from earlier this year. You’d be surprised to hear what Kim Kardashian had to say earlier this year!
