Ashley Samson basically jump-started the sports scandal of the decade when she told the National Enquirer all about Tiger Woods' affair with Rachel Uchitel.

That interview likely played a role in the confrontation between Woods and his wife, resulting in his now-infamous car crash and spectacular fall from grace.

At least 10 other Tiger Woods mistresses have come out of the woodwork since, costing the golfer many endorsements, respect and possibly his marriage.

For that, Ashley Samson got $25,000, a sum she says pales in comparison to the toll it's taken on her - and to what Tiger Woods offered her to keep quiet.

In retrospect, she told the N.Y. Daily News she should have taken the $200,000 his camp offered her not to blow the whistle on Tiger and Rachel Uchitel.

Samson says her decision to talk about Tiger and Rachel resulted in plenty of mental anguish, fractured friendships and her own marriage, which ended.

"I'm trying to get my f--king life together and repair my reputation," says Ashley Samson. "It probably would have been better (to accept the $200,000)."

"What ended up happening was a big mess."

Samson says she remains bitter about the way Rachel Uchitel trashed her during interviews once the scandal broke, saying she didn't even know Samson.

Photographs later emerged showing them together, of course.

One time, Samson was lying on a bed next to Uchitel and listening to Uchitel's steamy phone calls with Tiger, who's been married to Elin Woods since 2004.

A month later, an all-out verbal war with erupted.

Samson says she has weighed legal action against Rachel Uchitel, although she won't comment on where she currently stands on that touchy subject.

He may have been rejected by Jillian Harris, but Jake Pavelka was really angling to be The Bachelor the whole time is ready to soar on his new quest for love.

The Bachelor: On The Wings Of Love premieres tonight, and will feature the commercial pilot as he narrows down his search from 25 women to one final lady.

Below are excerpts from an interview Jake gave with TV Guide previewing the new season, being Mr. Perfect, his rules for dating, and the mile high club ...

TV Guide: What did you bring from The Bachelorette to The Bachelor?

Jake Pavelka: When you're on The Bachelorette, everything slows down to a good pace. You start becoming really aware of how what you say affects people and it makes you a lot better at dating and in relationships.

TV Guide: Are you a bit skeptical of the process?

Jake Pavelka: I didn't go in pushing. The show does have a bit of a rough history, with people breaking up or changing their minds, and that's OK. I tried to be very honest no matter how painful it was and I just remained open-minded.

TV Guide: So then it's safe to assume you were in the moment?

Jake Pavelka: The Bachelor

Jake Pavelka: My answer to that is I'm going to go on there to be myself. A lot of the dates and different activities we got to do on The Bachelor were geared around what I would do in my normal life - what dates scream Jake.

[THG NOTE: Does that include girl-on-girl action?]

TV Guide: Last season, some of your fellow contestants (and Jillian Harris herself) thought you were a bit too perfect. How do you respond to that?

Jake Pavelka: I don't know what it is that make Ed and Jillian say that I was too perfect. Something that I see in the dating world these days is a bit of a lack of chivalry. It's gotten so bad that women almost don't expect it anymore.

TV Guide: Do you have dating rules you to like to follow?

Jake Pavelka: After an unbelievable date, if I want to call her the next morning, I'm just going to call. If that turns her off, "he's smothering me, it's too much too quick," then that's OK; we're probably on two different pages.

TV Guide: We have to ask: Have you joined the mile-high club?

Jake Pavelka: [Laughs] I am not a member of the mile-high club, but I'll leave you with this: I aspire to be ... no I don't aspire to be, I will be.

For a dead guy, Michael Jackson comes out with a lot of new material.

We're kidding, of course. But previously unreleased material from the late King of Pop has been made into a movie and multiple songs since his June 25, 2009 demise. Another MJ track leaked this morning, and we've got a snippet here.

"Another Day" is an alleged duet with Lenny Kravitz. Some people are saying the verse Michael sings is taken from an older Kravitz song called "Storm."

Whatever it's from, Michael sure can sing.

Kravitz gave an interview with Spinner shortly after Michael Jackson's death where he mentioned working with him on a song that hadn't been released.

Lenny called that "the most amazing experience I've had in the studio." Listen to the 90-second excerpt below and tell us what you think in our poll ...

What do you think of Michael Jackson's "Another Day"?

Despite possibly being held down at knife-point by her husband, Brooke Mueller reportedly wants to reconcile with Charlie Sheen.

Her lawyer refers to the alleged, troubled incident as a "bad night."

When asked about her daughter's desire to continue a relationship with a man that may have attacked her, Moira Fiore told E! News: "I have mixed feelings about it."

We bet she does. Fiore added that Mueller "won't listen" to any advice from her mother, which causes one to wonder if she's truly in love with Sheen or scared for her life. It may be a combination of both.

Mrs. Charlie Sheen

Hold on to those handcuffs, Brooke. You may need them if you stay married to Charlie Sheen.

Mueller is still in Aspen with her two children, nine-month old twins Bob and Max.

Meanwhile, the Colorado police have wrapped up their investigation into what transpired on Christmas Eve and have turned all evidence over to the district attorney's office. We're asking readers:

Do you think Mueller should divorce Sheen?

In late 2008 and early 2009, the relationship between Alex Rodriguez and Madonna was frequent gossip fodder as the baseball star was divorcing his wife.

It was reported that an "affair of the heart" (or more) with Madge led to a contentious end to A-Rod's marriage, which also produced two small children.

Now it looks like Cynthia Rodriguez may have company.

Actress Kate Hudson reportedly dumped the World Series winner after eight months because "his heart belongs to Madonna," the New York Daily News says.

Hudson warned A-Rod that if he continued talking to the music icon she would leave, and kept her promise when A-Rod kept calling and texting the singer.

Triangle

Is A-Rod still hung up on Madonna - and did Kate dump him for it?

"Kate was jealous," said a source. "She gave A-Rod three chances to stop contacting Madonna. How would you feel if your new boyfriend kept calling his ex?"

Well, if she's his f*%king soulmate, then ...

The source said it broke Hudson's heart but she didn't want to be the other woman: "She said that if Madonna is what A-Rod wants then she can have him."

Madonna has been reportedly tied to Brazilian model Jesus Luz since breaking up with A-Rod in early 2009. The extent of their relationship is rather unclear.

Regardless, this story doesn't jibe with previous reports that Alex called it off because Kate was dating him for fame and publicity and was taking it too fast.

Whatever happened, there's no telling where this Rod will end up next.

Rumors are swirling (again) about a Jonas Brothers break-up.

While this may be a scary thought for fans of the siblings, they can at least take comfort in one fact: Nick Jonas won't be leaving the musical stage any time soon.

The 17-year old has formed a new group, Nick Jonas and the Administration. They're playing at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville tonight and, prior to the show, Nick spoke to The Tennessean about forming this band. A few excerpts follow:

On going solo: The writing for this record really started in October of last year. I was writing songs that, stylistically, weren’t necessarily like the Jonas Brothers sound, and I didn’t know what to do with them. I met with my brothers and talked to them about this idea that I had to do a side project.

On his siblings' reaction: They said, ‘We’re excited for you. We know that you have a lot that you’re passionate about, and we’re here to support you.’ So that worked out nicely.

On fan reaction: The response has been amazing from the fans. Seeing that they’ve been so supportive and so passionate really shows me that the Jonas Brothers are so strong. It’s true that we have the best fans in the world, so I’m thankful for them and all that they do every day to support us.

On the future of The Jonas Brothers: We’re trying to continue to grow and learn as much as we can along the way. I think that we’re going to take a little while on the next record, really take our time, considering that we’ve released four albums in three and a half years.

Listen to the first official music video from Nick Jonas and the Administration - for the single "Who I Am" - below.

Nothing Michael Lohan does comes without the obligatory "well, that's weird" or "what a d!ck" reactions. This would certainly fit into the former category.

While Jon Gosselin battles with one of his ex-girlfriends, Hailey Glassman, another former fling, Kate Major, seems to be getting pretty close to Michael.

Lindsay's dad and Jon's rebound piece have been hanging out recently, and the duo recently got similar tattoos to commemorate ... well, who knows.

"I got a tattoo for the new year. Kate liked it so she got one too. It was not a big deal," Lohan, out on bail after harassing ex-fiancee Erin Muller, said.

Kate Major, Jon Gosselin

Michael Lohan and Jon Gosselin were very friendly in mid-2009, and it was Mike who introduced her Kate Major, a former reporter for Star magazine.

While Michael denies being romantically involved with Kate, reports say they spent the holidays in Chicago and once even shared a hotel room in NYC.

That's one way to get back at Jon ... for what, we have absolutely no idea. But you know M-Lo doesn't do anything without a clear agenda in mind.

Dude wrote a fake-suicide Tweet. Just saying.

Tiger Woods' wife may or may not be divorcing his cheating a$$, but she's definitely clearing her head - by going skiing thousands of miles away.

At least we think that the heartbroken Elin Nordegren is that far away from Tiger in the French Alps. No one has seen the guy in a month-plus.

According to the Sun (UK), Elin is seeking refuge in a posh, £5,000-a-night chalet as Tiger continues to live in seclusion at home in the U.S.

As she wrestles with her future, Elin Woods is holed up with her twin sister Josefin and five trusted pals, plus a hired French security detail.

Pals say Elin makes a point of being up at 6:30 a.m. every day and insists on being independent, as per "her traditional family lifestyle."

She has not been seen with Tiger Woods since the car crash outside their Florida mansion which exposed his loooong string of mistresses.

SKI BUNNY: Elin Woods is in the French Alps. Tiger? Who knows.

A family friend told The Sun: "Elin wanted to take her family and close friends away from the minefield Tiger has created by his behavior."

"She has been absolutely torn to pieces by what he has done to her. But she still sees a future with Tiger because of their beautiful children."

Will they reconcile? It's unclear. But "she told him she needed a lengthy time apart to reflect on how they might possibly salvage the marriage."

Tiger's whereabouts since the infamous crash have become a frequently-discussed topic in recent weeks, with little conclusive evidence to go on.

It has been claimed Tiger was seen with Rachel Uchitel - the first woman linked to him - at a party and in a club, but she vehemently denied this.

There were also rumors circulating that he had plastic surgery in Phoenix after Elin smashed his face with a golf club, but that too was debunked.
