The Tonight Show is not known for breaking news, but Conan O’Brien had some last night, revealing the newest addition to the list of Tiger Woods mistresses.

By now, Tiger's extramarital affairs are common knowledge, but this one will still shock you, as it came completely out of left field (and the girl's not his type).

At this point, Tiger should really consider heading to rehab for sex addiction, as has been rumored, because this is 12 women and counting. That we know of.

During a wrap-up of 2009's films, Conan showed viewers a deleted scene from one of this year’s hits that featured a lucky lady linked to the world's #1 golfer.

This is one you didn't see coming ... even if Tiger wishes he did:

Amy Winehouse was formally charged with assault earlier today in connection with the recent brouhaha she started at a local theater. Anyone surprised?

The 26-going-on-56-year-old soul diva was arrested after she turned herself in at a police station with her lawyer, a Thames Valley Police official said.

She was charged with a public order offense and common assault under the name Amy Civil, following her Saturday melee at Milton Keynes Theater.

Winehouse was granted a divorce from her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, in July, and is therefore not technically named Amy Civil ... if she ever was.

Anyway ...

Health Personified

One never knows what to expect from this nut job.

She is free on bail and must appear in court on January 20. Police did not provide details on the incident, but British media have had a field day with it.

The Sun reported that the singer allegedly heckled the cast, struggled with a member of the staff, bled on some actors and attacked the manager.

Winehouse is no stranger to roughhousing. She acquitted earlier this year of assaulting a fan who asked for a picture (aptly-named Sherene Flash).

A judge said he could not be sure if she lashed out at the woman deliberately, though police said Amy Winehouse was drunk when she punched her.

Who's next? We'll find out soon enough.

Early last week, we reported that Courtney Love lost custody of daughter Frances Bean Cobain, her only child with her late husband, rocker Kurt Cobain.

What wasn't specified was why Frances Bean is now under guardianship of Kurt's mother and sister (sparking a series of Facebook rants from Courtney).

Courtney Love, Frances Bean Cobain

A new clue has just surfaced, however. Lawyers in the case have asked to seal the documents relating "to a minor and allegations of domestic violence."

Documents were filed by lawyers December 11 for the Cobains' guardianship, which was established on behalf of minor Frances Bean Cobain, who is 17.

Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain in pre-restraining order times.

A judge stripped Love of legal control over her daughter. Court papers do not get specific, either, but do refer to sealing Frances Bean's medical records.

The docs also say, "In this proceeding, every document reveals details of Frances's (sic) relationship with her mother." It sounds like abuse was alleged.

A restraining order now prohibits "Courtney Love Cobain from certain behavior and from coming within a certain distance of Frances and her guardians."

Love's online ramblings - most recently warning her daughter not to become Jamie Lynn Spears - are well documented, but her attorney says she has not relapsed and this "is simply about Frances preferring to live with her grandmother."

We'll see if more information becomes available and whether that's true.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, who joined the team after serving 18 months in federal prison for his role in a dogfighting ring, has won an award.

Not for his performance on the field, where he's thrown one TD pass and run for two more in a reserve role. Vick has won the team's Ed Block Courage Award.

The award honors NFL players who exemplify commitment to the principles of sportsmanship and courage. Recipients are selected by their teammates' votes.

"I still have a lot of work to do," Vick said today after receiving the award. "But having my teammates vote me this award shows I'm doing the right thing."

Michael Vick has made quite a comeback in the past year.

He was given a prison sentence in December 2007 of up to 23 months for killing pit bulls, bankrolling a dogfighting operation and lying about it to authorities.

The Eagles were criticized by many for signing Vick after his release, but he has made no excuses and by most accounts he has been a model citizen so far.

"Congratulations to him for straightening his life around," Eagles coach Andy Reid said of Vick. "He's obviously very well-respected by his teammates."

Quarterback Donovan McNabb called the award "well-deserved."

Vick, whose comeback will be chronicled in a reality show on BET, is now up for the league-wide Ed Block Courage Award with one player from each team.

What do you think of Michael Vick?

The police booking photo of Shane Sparks, taken moments after the dancer was arrested and hit with eight child molestation charges, has been leaked online.

Sparks' lawyer says Shane is innocent and merely the victim of an extortion plot. LAPD detectives are still investigating and looking for other possible victims.

Shane remains innocent until proven guilty. Whether his defense is legit or he's just trying to beat the rap, he's mastered the sad, puppy-dog mug shot eyes:

The Balloon Boy stunt captivated a nation. Now it's saddled Richard Heene with tens of thousands of dollars in fines and landed him in jail for three months.

Heene and wife Mayumi, who together conspired and executed the now-infamous Balloon Boy hoax, both were sentenced to relatively light jail terms today.

Richard Heene got 90 days in jail, but that includes 60 days of work release that will let him pursue work as a construction contractor while doing his time.

Mayumi Heene, who was potentially facing deportation if convicted of a felony, will not be. She will, however, serve 20 days in jail after Richard's release.

Both were also sentenced to four years probation after securing a plea deal and have been barred from profiting from the balloon spectacle in any way.

A conniving Richard Heene pretends to be relieved that his six-year-old son Falcon was not actually floating away in a balloon. In reality he planned the whole hoax.

The Colorado couple feigned ignorance when their son, believed to be missing and drifting off in a homemade balloon, was actually in the attic the whole time.

It turns out they were actually trying to shop a reality show about a science-crazed family (themselves) and knew darn well he wasn't in danger. Unbelievable.

Heene choked back tears as he said he was sorry for the stunt, especially to the rescue workers who chased down false reports of Falcon Heene floating away.

Prosecutors are still seeking to recover all the costs of the search and investigation, which are already at $42,000 and quite possibly climbing much higher.

Brittany Murphy’s funeral will be held tomorrow night, on Christmas Eve, at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills, according to sources close to her.

The actress will be laid to rest less than a week after her tragic death at the age of 32. Murphy died suddenly of a heart attack early Sunday at her home.

The funeral service at Forest Lawn, the final resting place of the late Michael Jackson as well as many other celebrities, is listed as “strictly private.”

The cause of death is listed as cardiac arrest but the autopsy results were deferred and won’t be released for the next couple of weeks at the earliest.

At that point, we may know more from toxicology screenings about whether the various medications found in Murphy's home contributed to her death.

We wish her family and friends the best amid this sad event.

R.I.P.: Brittany Murphy passed away Sunday morning at just 32 years of age. Her husband, Simon Monjack, and her mom Sharon are taking this tragedy hardest.

Johnny Knoxville and Naomi Nelson, his girlfriend, have welcomed a little boy named Rocko, according to the Los Angeles Times. That's awesome.

Rocko Akira Clapp, who weighed 8 lbs. and measured 20 inches, was born Sunday in Los Angeles. It is the second child for Johnny Knoxville.

Jodie Sweetin, Zoie Herpin

His real name is Phillip John Clapp. Naomi Nelson, his girlfriend of several years, broke the news that she was pregnant earlier this year.

Johnny also has a teen daughter, Madison, with his ex-wife, Melanie Clapp. Regarding Madison, before his new son's arrival, Knoxville blogged:

"My daughter Madison has already started becoming a big sister and is helping pick out clothes, strollers and beds for her little sister or brother."

Who knew this Jackass could be such a softie?

Congratulations to Johnny Knoxville and Naomi Nelson!

Very little about Tiger Woods would surprise us at this point.

But if he and Rachel Uchitel were still seeing each other - or even in communication - after the events of the past three weeks, well, that definitely would.

Where is Tiger Woods? That's the big question everyone's trying to answer (Cruising to the Bahamas? 'Round-the-clock counseling? Secret night golfing?).

There are reports that Tiger is going all out to save his marriage and will check into rehab very shortly. But a tabloid tells a markedly different tale today.

The latest gossip comes from In Touch, which reports that a secret boat, not Tiger's yacht Privacy, is docked near Rachel Uchitel's Palm Beach condo.

Hmm ...

Comfy at Home

Rachel Uchitel: America's Sweetheart and the O.G. Tiger Woods mistress.

On that vessel, the magazine claims, the two are carrying on the affair (check out Tiger's emails to her) - the one that blew the lid off this sex scandal.

"They have been sleeping together the entire time since the scandal broke," a source says of Tiger and Rachel, who he was (is?) supposedly falling for.

We highly doubt that's true. However, when E! asked her if she is still hanging out with Tiger, Rachel, master of the non-answer text, responded:

"I got a house here and 2 girlfriends have been here the entire time. I have family that lives in Palm Beach also, I had planned this before November."

Well, that clears it up then. Only not at all.

What we know for a fact is that Rachel is in Palm Beach and Tiger's boat has been docked in the harbor close by. Other than that, it's anyone's guess.
