The Hollywood Gossip Week in Review: December 5-11, 2009

If you like watching a good old-fashioned train wreck, the fall from grace of Tiger Woods has been one for the ages. And it shows zero signs of abating.

Needless to say, Woods and his many mistresses dominated celebrity gossip again as one of the year's biggest scandals keeps on getting worse (for him).

We've got Tiger's drama - and everything else - covered in The Hollywood Gossip's Week in Review! Some highlights from the week in celebrity news:

  • With three mistresses already linked to Woods, Jamie Jungers became #4 last weekend ... and was later revealed to be a high-priced call girl.
  • In a 48-hour span, Mindy Lawton, Cori Rist and Holly Sampson (also a rumored escort at Jungers' agency) upped the mistress count to seven.
  • Elin Woods' mom was randomly rushed to the hospital as rumors swirled that Tiger's wife moved out on him ... which few would blame her for.
  • Tiger was linked to porn star Joslyn James and later in the week, call girl Loredana Jolie, with several other mistresses waiting in the wings.
  • Perhaps the most embarrassing developments, though, were emails and text messages Woods sent to Jaimee Grubbs and Rachel Uchitel.
  • While Tiger preferred to talk dirty to Jaimee, he was apparently falling for Rachel. She says she's going to get tested for STDs immediately.
  • Lastly, Woods' attorneys are moving to stop the release of nude photos and videos of him. Check out our list of mistresses for dirt on each!

Tiger Woods and eight of his mistresses. What will the final count be?

  • ABC continues to take heat over its handling of Adam Lambert.
  • Christmas totally came early: A judge silenced Jon Gosselin!
  • Barack Obama accepted his Nobel Prize. Some were happy.
  • Fashion faux-pas of the week: Miley flashing the Queen.
  • Billy Joel's daughter Alexa Ray OD'd, but is better now.
  • In cheating news not involving Tiger, Jenny Sanford left South Carolina Gov. Mark, and USC football coach Pete Carroll denied a grad student fling.
  • Must-see TV of the week: Jersey Shore. It's so terrible it's beyond terrible. Yet we challenge you to turn it off. The guidettes will have you hooked!
  • Couples watch: Holly Madison and Benji Madden were seen together; Tila Tequila and Casey Johnson are (supposedly) getting hitched; Hulk Hogan is engaged and Mickey Rourke might be; Jessica Simpson and Billy Corgan are dating.
  • It was a busy week for celebrity babies, with Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen and Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett had their first (both boys), while Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar welcomed baby #19 after an emergency delivery!

Sarah Palin and William Shatner Go Rogue, Exchange Readings on Tonight Show

The Tonight Show has had way too much fun chiding Sarah Palin this year, thanks to master thespian William Shatner's spoken-word, excerpted readings from the former governor's farewell speech and later Levi Johnston's Twitter account.

It was high time Sarah got in on the action herself, don't you think?

On last night's Tonight Show, Shatner again treated us to signature, dramatic prose (with bongo accompaniment) from Palin's new memoir, Going Rogue.

But this time, Sarah made a surprise appearance to turn the tables.

"I think Bill did a great job, but I think it's only appropriate that I read a few choice excerpts from Mr. Shatner's autobiography, Up Till Now," she said.

And she did. Watch the dueling, spoken-word comic genius below ...


Kris Allen Rocks Out for Christmas

Don't be jealous, Mrs. Kris Allen.

Your man still only has eyes for you. He just couldn't resist a photo op this week with the iconic figure of Daisy Duck.

The American Idol champion performed in front of thousands at Walt Disney World as part of that locale's Christmas Day Parade TV special, set to air Christmas Day. It will be shown on December 25 on ABC.

Allen will be joined on the special by Celine Dion, Yani, Steve Wonder and the Jonas Brothers, the latter of whom you can also see rocking out right now.

MTV Pulls Snooki Sucker Punch From Jersey Shore

Jersey Shore has only aired three episodes, but it's already generating massive amounts of controversy - even in episodes that haven't even aired yet.

MTV has decided to pull footage of next week's situation - not The Situation - in which Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi gets punched in the face ... by a man.

Network execs ordered the cuts after downloaded copies of Thursday night's on-air Jersey Shore promo showing the sucker-punch caused a stir online.

Calling it a sucker punch may not even be an accurate term, actually, since the meathead is looking Nicole Polizzi in the face as he frickin' levels her.

"What happened to Snooki was a crime and obviously extremely disturbing," MTV said in a statement regarding its decision to pull the punch scene.

Snooki gets punched on next week's Jersey Shore.

"After hearing from our viewers and seeing how the video footage has been taken out of context not to show the severity of this act or resulting consequences, MTV has decided not to air Snooki being physically punched in the face."

The fight and its aftermath will be addressed, though, along with an ad sponsored by the loveisrespect and Teen Dating Abuse Helpline organization.

An MTV rep says no further cuts are planned (though the show interestingly stopped using the terms "guido" and "guidette" on this week's episode).

Dan Ferro, a Queens, N.Y., gym teacher, was the guy who hit Snooki, and was arrested on the spot. He was found guilty of assault, fined, sentenced to anger management counseling and given a six-month suspended jail term if he stays clean.

Here's the part of next week's Jersey Shore promo showing Snooki getting closed-fist cocked. It's rough. The guy may have gotten off too easily ...


Melissa Rycroft and Tye Strickland: Married!

It's official: Melissa Rycroft has beaten Jason Mesnick to the altar.

The former Bachelor winner-turned-reject got married to Tye Strickland earlier today in Mexico.

"Tye is my best friend in the world, and now he's my partner forever. We have had such a journey within our relationship, that to finally look at him and see my husband, gives me the calmest, most content feeling in the world," Rycroft told In Touch Weekly.

"I love him so much and am so excited for our forever to begin!"

Together 4 Eva

During the ceremony, Rycroft wore an Alfred Angelo gown; her former Dancing With the Stars partner Tony Dovolani was in attendance, as was Bachelorette Jillian Harris.

The former will show up on television against next month, as she and Ed Swiderski advise new Bachelor Jake Pavelka during the show's January 4 premiere.


Tara-ble: Tara Reid Playboy Cover Unveiled!

According to Playboy, its upcoming issue is "massive" and "double."

Based on the photo below, it's clear the former adjective refers to cover gal Tara Reid's breasts; while the latter describes the take our staff did upon seeing it.

Tara Reid? Really?!?

A shot of this train wreck in her underwear was enough to leave us nauseous for a month. Do we really need to see the whole thing?

Bill O'Reilly Enraged at Law & Order Reference

Whether he's debating whether Miley is a skank or comparing Michael Jackson to O.J., Bill O'Reilly is never one to shy away from hot-button, pop-cultural topics.

This time, the Fox news host is irate at Law & Order: SVU and its producer Dick Wolf after what he felt was a defamatory reference about him on the NBC drama.

This week's episode involved an anti-immigration activist who set out to kill children of illegal immigrants. A character named Randall Carver, played by John Larroquette, defended the activist's actions to Fin, the detective played by Ice-T.

Larroquette's character says, "Limbaugh, Beck, O'Reilly ... are like a cancer spreading ignorance and hate. They've convinced folks immigrants are the problem, not corporations that fail to pay a living wage or a broken health care system."

Bill slammed the "defamatory and outrageous" scene and said Wolf as a "coward" and "liar." He insisted (via a montage of clips) that is problem isn't with illegal immigrants themselves, but with the government doing little to control immigration.

He also took an irrelevant, but funny shot at NBC's ratings.

Check out the clip and see what you think ...


K-Fed Loses Weight, Retains Girlfriend

Something strange surfaced on an L.A. golf course late last week:

A respectable-looking Kevin Federline! Well, relatively at least.

The dirtbag ex-husband of Britney Spears has been eating his way through monthly five-figure spousal support checks she writes him with a new, rotund physique this year, packing on 75-100 pounds (no joke) in the last 12 months.

But the aspiring rapper has gotten his act together and shed 50 pounds as a contestant on the next season of VH1's Celebrity Fit Club, airing in January.

Here's the new, improved K-Fed with girlfriend Victoria Prince:

K-Fed and V-Prince hit the links. As in the golf course. Fortunately for her, and the rest of us, he cut back on the sausage links. [Photo:]

Shar Jackson, Federline's ex-girlfriend, the mother of two of his kids and his fellow Fit Club contestant, said of Kev: "I think everybody will be very, very shocked to see the final results," after he survived a "very painful" boot camp.

Check out some pictures of fat-ass K-Fed to see how far he's come:

Happy Birthday, Taylor Swift!

For her 20th birthday, we were gonna get Taylor Swift a quartet of Country Music Awards. But she already has those.

Then, we were gonna ensure her nomination for a slew of Grammys. But, nope, the singer has snagged those, too.

A fake ID, so she doesn't have to wait a year to drink legally? Nah. This isn't Miley Cyrus.

Might we honor the beauty with a spot on our Celebrity of the Year countdown? You'll find out soon!

For now, we're simply gonna offer Taylor gifts that money can't buy: our deepest appreciation of her talent, our gratitude for her normalcy, a request to readers to send in your birthday wishes to the superstar, and the photo montage below...
