• Gilbert Arenas vs. Laura Govan: The most bruising breakup — lawsuits, counterclaims, reality TV — ended with the most unlikely reconciliation.

• Barack Obama vs. Donald Trump: The birther icon glowered through POTUS’s jokes at his expense at the WHCA dinner.

• Tareq Salahi vs. Michaele Salahi: She was kidnapped? No, wait — she ran off with the guitarist for Journey? Here’s an idea for a show: “The Real Cuckolds of D.C.”

• Doug Brinkley vs. Rep. Don Young: Their testy exchange made this congressional hearing worth watching.
