On The City season finale last night, Whitney Port put it all on the (clothing) line, while Erin Kaplan told her boss at Elle that it's gonna be her or Olivia Palermo.

Below, The Hollywood Gossip staff breaks down the events on last night's episode, awarding and deducting points as we deem appropriate. Let's get to it ...

Port at Paley Fest

OMG Whitney Port looks so summery and cute, we can hardly stand it. Plus 2.

Erin is on the kill-Olivia warpath from the get-go. This could be good. Plus 3.

Kelly Cutrone on why Roxy shouldn't go to Whit's meeting: "Don't you think she should bring someone who knows what the f*%k they're doing?" Plus 16.

Olivia's handling of criticism: "I'm going to refrain from commenting." That's real professional. Minus 7, because as we said last week, she shouldn't have a job.

As Whitney panics about her presentation, dramatic music crescendos and the Bergdorf Goodman buyers roll up into the building like gangsters. Plus 5.

Whitney Port can do no wrong, even in failure.

Al Roker sighting on Today! Don't tell Spencer Pratt! Plus 3.

Olivia massively flakes, even for her, leaving Joe Zee high and dry. Minus 10, but Plus 2 because at least the Today peeps always refer to him as "Joe Zee."

MTV totally changed its absurd promo for Jersey Shore to hype up the hottest, tannest, craziest housemates instead of guidos! No points, it's just hilarious.

Whitney's presentation kind of bombs, but we're giving it a Plus 25 for the following reasons: 1. She handled it gracefully. 2. She didn't get preferential treatment, and shouldn't. 3. Kelly's stuck by her and wants to help launch a full line!

After Olivia's royal f*%k up, Erin has it out with her and Joe, telling her boss it's either her or Olivia. Right before the credits roll, Joe picks ... no one! A whole season of a boring, repetitive story line and no resolution! Wow, MTV. Minus 36.

TOTAL: +3. SEASON TOTAL: +5. While we'll always love Whitney, The City failed to deliver a classic (or any) confrontation to salvage the Olivia-Erin "drama."

Thus, the episode and season barely end in positive territory. Not a total waste, but should there even be a Season 3? If so, will it decide what it wants to be?

Tiger Woods has 14 major championships, second most in golf history.

He's racking up major affairs at an even more prolific rate, however: Another woman, Vegas club promoter Kalika Moquin, claims she's been sleeping with the star!

Tiger and Charlie Woods

According to Life & Style, Kalika Moquin, a marketing manager for The Bank nightclub, has been seeing Tiger Woods on the sly for months, as recently as October.

Moquin claims she hooked up with Tiger more than once at his Las Vegas hotel the weekend of October 23, making her third mistress to be publicly linked to Tiger.

Below is a photo of the newest alleged Tiger Woods mistress. She's apparently one of the 31 most influential peole in Vegas nightlife. That was before the affair ...

Rachel Uchitel, also a club promoter (in NYC) and L.A. waitress Jaimee Grubbs are also rumored to be women with whom Tiger cheated on his wife, Elin Nordegren.

It was a Tiger Woods voicemail saved by Grubbs and sold to Us that blew the lid off his transgressions, for which he vaguely apologized in a statement today.

When contacted by the celeb gossip magazine, Kalika neither confirmed nor denied an affair, saying: "It's not appropriate for me to comment one way or the other."

"At this time, I'm just choosing to focus on my job."

Just the same, Life & Style cites a source saying: "They've hooked up a bunch of times" and that "Tiger told Kalika that married life isn't all it's built up to be."

The supposed insider adds that the sports legend "said he wasn't happy in his marriage or his home life and that there was just so much pressure on him."

He hit .334 and led the New York Yankees to their 27th World Series title this fall.

Earlier in the season, he broke Lou Gehrig's franchise record for base hits; was named an All-Star; won a Gold Glove; finished second in the league in hits, third in batting average and on-base percentage, fourth in runs and eighth in stolen bases.

For all those reasons, Sports Illustrated has named Derek Jeter its Sportsman of the Year.

It's a deserved honor for the future Hall of Famer, due to his on-field accomplishments. But there's another reason why Jeter has earned this distinction: you won't find a Rachel Uchitel or a Jaimee Grubbs in his past, present or future.

Sportsman of the Year

As fans around the world groan over the Tiger Woods voicemail to Grubbs - and lament the fact that others athletic icons such as Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant have also been exposed as cheaters - even the most ardent Red Sox supporter has to admire Jeter.

Here's a guy that has dated countless celebrities, all of them gorgeous, yet none of them ever having a negative word to utter about the star shortstop.

An intelligent player on the diamond, Jeter is even smarter away from the stadium. He's avoided marriage, enjoyed an honest life as a bachelor and managed to make headline solely for his baseball-related accomplishments. Not many athletes can say that anymore.

Said Jeter, upon accepting the award in NYC:

“When you think about being a good sportsman, there’s a lot of things that come to mind. People tell you it’s success on the baseball field... I also think there’s a lot of qualities that go into it - hard work, dedication, pride, humility. These are all things that I learned at a very young age.”

Oh, there's another reason why Jeter has earned our perpetual admiration: he doesn't just tap the dirt off his cleats prior to an at-bat; he taps THIS PIECE every night!

Tiger Woods' alleged affairs with two different women look to have played a role in his now-infamous car crash last week, and the evidence continues to pile up.

A few minutes ago, the golf legend posted a new statement on his official site regarding the scandal that continues to dog him and his wife, Elin Nordegren.

While he doesn't mention Jaimee Grubbs or Rachel Uchitel by name, or even admit affairs, the writing is on the wall. He also rips the media and pleas for privacy.

Tiger Woods writes:

"I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart. I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves."

"I am not without faults and am far short of perfect. I am dealing with my behavior behind closed doors. Those feelings should be shared by my family alone."

"Although I am a well-known person and have made my career as a pro athlete, I am dismayed to realize the full extent of what tabloid scrutiny means."

"For the last week, my family and I have been hounded to expose intimate details of our personal lives. The stories in particular that physical violence played any role in the car accident were utterly false and malicious. Elin has always done more to support our family and shown more grace than anyone could possibly expect."

"No matter how intense curiosity about public figures can be, there is an important principle at stake which is the right to some simple, human measure of privacy."

"I realize there are some who don't share my view on that issue. But for me, the virtue of privacy is one that must be protected in matters that are intimate and within one's own family. Personal sins should not require press releases and problems within a family shouldn't have to mean public confessions."

"Whatever regrets I have about letting my family down have been shared with and felt by us alone. I have given this a lot of reflection and thought and I believe that there is a point at which I must stick to that principle even though it's difficult."

"I will strive to be a better person and the husband and father that my family deserves. For those who have supported me over the years, I offer my profound apology."

What do you think of Tiger Woods' apology statement?

Meredith Baxter, who played Elyse Keaton on the hit 1980s series Family Ties, came out of the closet this morning as a lesbian, saying it happened "later in life."

Baxter, who's been married to men three times and has five children, revealed on the Today show that she has been in a relationship with a woman for four years.

"I'm a lesbian mom," she says.

The couple lives an "out" life together in L.A., but it had been an open secret of sorts, as she had yet to comment publicly on her sexual orientation until today. 

Meredith Baxter Pic

Meredith Baxter says her children have been nothing but supportive.

Possible reason for the timing? The revelation comes right as National Enquirer released a story saying Baxter recently went on a cruise with 1,200 lesbians.

Meredith Baxter, 62, said the thought of being gay "had never crossed my mind" earlier in life, but at the same time, "I was never comfortable with myself."

We're glad that she is now.

There's good news, bad news and really, really bad news for Lindsay Lohan these days.

First, the good: the actress doesn't look awful in newly-released outtakes from her recent Sunday Times pictorial.

In late October, we posted a trio of images of Lohan in the weekly British newspaper, none of which were particularly flattering. But these photos, which somehow didn't make the cut, show Lindsay at her best... which isn't saying much, we know.

Then, of course, there's the bad news: Lohan's career - which once showed promise with starring turns in movies such as Mean Girls and guest appearances on Ugly Betty - has been reduced to posing for random, international publications.

Seriously, would any movie studio hire her for a major release at this point?

Finally, there's the REALLY bad news: Lindsay's father is Michael Lohan, an individual that fakes suicide Tweets, releases taped phone calls with his daughter and falls behind on child support payments.

He's almost enough to make us feel sorry for Lindsay.

Miss Britney Jean Spears turns 28 today - and we couldn't be happier.

She's been entertaining us for more than a decade now, and while there were some dark years in there, the pop princess is back and better than ever.

Not only does she continue to crank out hits and cement her place as one of the most successful recording artists of all time, she seems quite content.

With a strong new man in Jason Trawick (recent rumors aside), and two adorable young sons, it's good to be Britney Spears. We're lucky to have her.

Britney and Jayden James share one of those tender moments.

We just hope Kevin Federline remembers to send his ex-wife a card. His current girlfriend, Victoria Prince, also celebrates her birthday today (she's 27). Irony.

Looks like Elin Woods' meltdown and subsequent roughing up of a cheating Tiger wasn't the only high-profile domestic rumble over Thanksgiving weekend.

Okay, it probably was. But a pair of celeb gossip tabloids are apparently trying to convince us that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are on the verge of collapse.

Unconvinced they've gotten the fake word out about Brangelina fighting, this week's theme is that they're REALLY fighting! Worse than you EVEN KNOW!

Last week, In Touch said Brad will reunite with Jennifer Aniston soon. At least that's consistent with this week's Brangelina "bitter holiday showdown" cover.

Apparently, Angelina insulted Brad’s parents so hard that he’s tempted to leave her. Whatever Angie said, rest assured ... it's worse than anyone knows.

Much Worse

A WAR TO END ALL WARS: No, seriously. Brangelina is fighting.

Rival Star, meanwhile, tells a similar tale of a Brangelina Thanksgiving gone haywire, resulting in more than an argument - try a fight that got the cops called!

Which we would've heard about, and didn't, but hey.

In non-Brangelina news, Britney Spears is apparently pregnant again (she wishes!!!) and Tiger Woods and his wife Elin got into some kind of argument.

Well, at least that last part's true.

A voicemail allegedly left by Tiger Woods for Jaimee Grubbs, who claims to be his mistress, has just been released by Us Weekly, and it sure sounds like him.

Last Tuesday, November 24, Woods supposedly phoned Grubbs and left a message begging her to change her voicemail to a number-only greeting. He said:

"Hey, it's Tiger. I need you to do me a huge favor. Can you please take your name off your phone? My wife went through my phone and may be calling you."

"So if you can, please take your name off that. Just have it as a number ... on the voicemail. You gotta do this for me. Huge. Quickly. Bye."

Tiger Woods' apparent plea to Jaimee Grubbs is telling.

Yesterday, Jaimee Grubbs came forward with details of her long affair with Tiger, one that started in April 2007 and presumably ended with this voicemail.

Tiger' personal life has come under scrutiny ever since he wrecked his car early Friday morning after what looks like a big-time fight with wife Elin Woods.

Reports of his infidelity surfaced last week, but originally centered around Rachel Uchitel, who denied an affair with Woods. J-Grubbs? Well, she sold this tape.

Could his affair with Jaimee be what sent Elin through the roof? Very possible. Follow the jump to hear Tiger's voicemail to Jaimee Grubbs:

Last week, rumors swirled about a supposed marriage proposal from Britney Spears to Jason Trawick - one her agent boyfriend turned down to her dismay.

When he turned up in L.A. over the weekend, while Spears remained in Australia on tour, that raised further suspicions of a possible rift between the two.

Brit's camp insists the two remain happy, but Trawick looked relieved to be free of his extensive responsibilities, and a lot skinnier and worse for the wear.

Could the stress of dating Britney Spears be getting to him?

  • J. Trawick
  • Skinny Jason

A skinny, solo Jason Trawick turned up in L.A. last week.

Devotedly by her side throughout her entire European and Australian tours, Jason Trawick has proven himself in the eyes of Britney and her father, Jamie.

He's been a rock, a source of stability for the troubled singer, and something of a permanent fixture in the family who gets along great with her two sons.

However, his solo return to L.A. suggested to some that the reserved, low-profile Jason might be looking for an escape. Enter the marriage rumor.

"He takes marriage very seriously," said a friend of his reluctance to marry Britney Spears, but the pair have remained an item, at least for the moment.

Here they are last night, looking ... happy? Or at least together.

The two do seem happy together more often than not, so perhaps rumors of tension are premature. Will Britney Spears marry Jason Trawick?
