You heard it here first!

2014 was a very good year for exclusives here at TheTVPage.com.

From a gay-bashing TV Bachelor to a Teen Mom‘s sad loss and a public feud over a dead actress, we where on the front lines of the TV news reporting war all year to bring you dozens of stories you couldn’t find anywhere else.

Here are a few of our favorites:

1.  JUAN PABLO GALAVIS SAYS GAYS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO BE ON ‘THE BACHELOR’

3.  RED BAND SOCIETY: CIARA BRAVO VOWS TO HELP TEENS WITH EATING DISORDERS

9.  ‘SHAMELESS’: TEEN STAR EMMA KENNEY SAYS HER CHARACTER SHOULD WAIT TO HAVE SEX

“She definitely should wait until she actually cares about someone — and is older than 13,” the young actress said of her TV alter-ego on Showtime’s SHAMELESS.

10.  ‘MASTERCHEF JUNIOR’: ALL ABOUT ABBY – AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

The 8 year-old cutie from season two of MASTERCHEF JUNIOR told us all about herself.
