The Good and The Bad of Celebrity Thanksgivings

Thanksgiving can be hard on the happiest of families -- and celebrities are no exception. Sure, they may be able to afford to have someone else cook the bird and clean up afterwards, but remember: Money doesn't always buy happiness.

Kim Kardashian
The uber-wealthy reality star leads a charmed life for sure, but that doesn't mean she takes her good fortune for granted. She took to her Web site to list the top 10 things she's thankful for this year. Coming in at number one: "My family - family is really the most important thing in life." She also gave a special shout-out to new brother-in-law, Lamar Odom, "for making Khloe the happiest girl in the world."

Pamela Anderson
Poor, (relatively) broke, Pam will probably have money woes on her mind this holiday. To make matters worse, she's a devout vegetarian, which means she won't even be able to bury her sorrows in a delicious turkey meal. Plus, things might be just a little awkward at the dinner table since Pam recently sat her sons down to discuss the dirty details of her sex tape!

Lindsay Lohan
Even if she just avoids her dad altogether this holiday, we can't help but feel for Linds, whose ongoing fight with Michael Lohan breaks our heart. At least she has her little sis and her mother, Dina, who often defends her to the press. But it can't be easy to be estranged from your dad this time of year.

Jon and Kate Gosselin
It's unlikely things will be peaceful for the most famous of famously acrimonious couples. Who knows, though. Maybe they'll surprise everyone by putting their differences aside for the sake of family harmony. Afterall, the couple already said they plan to play nice for Christmas.

Holly Madison
Thanksgiving at the Playboy Mansion must be one of the more unconventional holiday experiences, so we can't imagine the former Girls Next Door star is shedding any tears about spending it elsewhere today. Holly seemed in good spirits as she showed her good-girl side serving Thanksgiving meals to underprivileged seniors in Las Vegas on Tuesday.

The Cast of New Moon
When you're a star of one of the most popular movies in recent memory, having a personal life can be tough. But even if Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart can't leave the house without being mobbed by fans and paparazzi, they can take solace in the fact that New Moon had the third-highest box office opening in history.

Which famous family's Thanksgiving do you think will be the most difficult this year? Chime in below!
