The Hollywood Gossip Week in Review: October 10-16, 2009

by at . Comments

What a week it's been. The craziest we can remember since... well, last week. Below, we take a look back at the defining moments of the past seven days in celeb gossip.

Welcome to THG's Week in Review!

Some of the highlights (and lowlights):

  • Worst boss ever: Ralph Lauren fired Filippa Hamilton for being fat.
  • Worst faked sex tape ever: The Shauna Sand sex tape. It's gross.
  • Worst Twitter use ever: Soulja Boy just had to prove he's that rich.
  • Worst National Anthem ever: Jesse McCartney forgets the lyrics.
  • Worst excuse ever: Jon Gosselin claims he withdrew $180,000 from his account with Kate he thought it was payday. A judge made him give it back.
  • In other Jon news, he's apparently a sketchy computer hacker. And his a$$ is being sued by TLC for breaching his contract. Never a dull moment.
  • Six-year-old Falcon Heene, a.k.a. Balloon Boy, took the country by storm when he was believed to have been carried off by a homemade helium balloon.
  • Turns out he was in the attic the whole time, hiding out as the world went nuts trying to rescue him. It reeks of a hoax. The kid himself sort of said so.

As memorable flashes in the celebrity gossip pan go, Balloon Boy Falcon Heene (center) and his eccentric, possibly-fame-seeking Colorado family may be tough to beat.
