Published November 23, 2016

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, many are starting to think about what they are thankful for most this year. That got us to thinking: What are some of this year's most talked about celebs most thankful for? From Donald Trump and the Electoral College to his wife Melania's public plagiarism of our fabulous First Lady Michelle Obama, take a look at the list of 13 things celebs should be grateful for this Thanksgiving.

  1. Donald Trump should be thankful for the Electoral College:

    With the polarizing outcome of the recent presidential election, and despite former candidate Hillary Clinton winning the popular vote, Trump won the presidency thanks to the trusty Electoral College.

  2. Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J should be thankful for the court system:

    The LHH couple has been in and out of the courts lately battling their current paternity situation, but both have been awarded well throughout the process, not to mention the attention they've been getting would make for an interesting storyline.

  3. Mona Scott-Young should be grateful for random people willing to be ratchet for fame:

    If we had a dollar for the number of folks who became famous after appearing on any show a part of the LHH franchise, we'd be rich.

  4. Rob Kardashian should be thankful for his fiancée Blac Chyna:

    The model, from the beginning of their relationship, helped him lead a healthier lifestyle and trim his weight and diet. Not to mention she gave him a beautiful baby girl.

  5. Blac Chyna should be thankful for reality TV, which birthed her now flourishing career:

    Her new reality show with her fiancé Rob gave her a voice she never had before and people can now say they love Chyna for more than her appearance.

  6. Tyga should be thankful for Kylie Jenner's credit rating:

    It's no secret that the youngest Jenner has been hooking her man up with a few stacks and gifts here and there. Be grateful, my man.

  7. Wendy Williams should be grateful for HBCUs, which both her brother and father attended:

    Earlier this year, the talk show host got into a bit of hot water for saying HBCUs were obsolete. But seeing as many of those students make up her core fan base and two members of her immediate family are alums, we're sure she's had a change of heart.

  8. Snoop Dogg should be thankful for California's Proposition 64:

    Thanks to the passing of Proposition 64, the California Marijuana Legalization Initiative, Snoop can now light up anytime and anywhere he wants.

  9. Monica and Missy Elliott should be thankful for the #SoGoneChallenge:

    It's not everyday that a song that was released more than a decade ago climbs back up the charts today, but thanks to the #SoGoneChallenge, Monica and Missy Elliott can say they've hit that feat.

  10. Toya Wright is thankful for the support of her girlfriends during this tough year:

    With all of the deaths in her family and the dissolvement of her marriage, Toya Wright has had one of the toughest years. But thanks to her girlfriends who have stood by her side through each tragedy, she's been able to push through.

  11. Melania Trump should be thankful for First Lady Michelle Obama's genius — and her speeches:

    Seeing as how the first-lady-to-be outwardly plagiarized words from one of the best first ladies this country has ever seen, we think she owes Mrs. Obama a serious "thank you very much."

  12. Teyana Taylor should be grateful for Kanye West:

    The "Fade" music video instantly became a phenomenon not due to its catchy beat or hook, but all thanks to Teyana Taylor's dancing, body and charisma in the infectious video. After it went viral, she's been booked literally everywhere.

  13. Khloé Kardashian should be thankful for Tristan Thompson:

    Khloé Kardashian has a new man and he's seemed to have been treating her like a queen since they got together. They've reportedly even began the moving process. Is it safe to say he upgraded her life a bit?
