The Florida housing market is bad enough. We don't envy anyone trying to sell a place there - especially the Miami real estate agents with Lil Wayne's listing.

The Grammy Award-winning rapper's three-bedroom, two-bathroom pad in South Beach is up for sale for $520,000. He might want to consider staging it.

Or at least cracking a window.

A prospective buyer tells this story to the New York Post:

"My fiancée and I called and the broker, deadpan, goes, 'I have two questions: Are you offended by the smell of marijuana? And do you mind coming late in the afternoon?"

"It's currently occupied by Lil Wayne, and these are not morning people."

UP IN SMOKE: Literally. That's how we'd describe Wayne's condo.

"Once we got there, a member of Wayne's posse opened the door to the overwhelming smell of marijuana. Two hot, rap-video-looking girls were walking around in nothing but underwear, blasting hip-hop. We went in and tried not to stare."

Lil Wayne, who also has a $3.1 million condo in the Murano Grande building and wasn't present during this hilarious tour, is actually a very neat tenant.

"He had a perfectly organized closet ... neatly stacked piles of XXL magazine, and a fully stocked bar featuring multiple bottles of Hennessy Black."

Wayne, real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, is releasing his new album, Rebirth, in February, when he'll be sentenced on weapons-possession charges.

He'll be going to jail for a year or so.

It's a good thing winter is here in much of the country - it's the time of year for earmuffs. Spencer Pratt is now the owner of his own music company.

Oh yes, really. According to documents filed recently, Pratt was declared the owner and founder of "King Spencer Music" back on November 18.

All for a filing fee of $23.

As to what sort of music Spencer's record company will produce, we can only guess. But it's safe to say it will greatly feature his wife Heidi Montag.

Heidi's rare brand of talent, if you can call it that (which you can't) will likely be the primary focal point of The Hills star's most recent endeavor.

MUSIC EXEC: Spencer Pratt means biz.

Speidi has gone through reality shows, caused controversy with reporters, and have even written a book titled How to Be Famous. They certainly know how to do that, although they may be kidding themselves if they expect big record sales.

Elin Nordegren Woods, the scorned wife of disgraced golfer Tiger Woods, has decided to leave him after Christmas and is talking with a divorce lawyer.

That's according to largely un-sourced tabloid reports coming out of the UK, and has not been confirmed by either Woods. But would you blame her?

Vintage Elin Nordegren

Sources say Elin wants the holiday season to appear normal for the couple's two children, Sam and Charlie, but will separate from Tiger shortly after.

Despite reports that Elin Woods moved out and is already back in her native Sweden, she remains in Central Florida with the two kids as of this posting.

Elin is said not to be in a huge rush to file divorce papers and that money is not a prime concern. Nor should it be, she'll be getting plenty regardless.

"I'll be taking the kids and a few hundred million, thanks."

The revelation of Tiger Woods' long list of mistresses caught her completely off guard and it’s a "raw" situation, according to friends of Elin Nordegren.

Amazing as it seems, Elin supposedly had no idea Tiger was cheating and the stress of the situation has caused her emotional and physical stress.

Unconfirmed rumors are also circulating that Tiger is still in touch with mistress Rachel Uchitel, the first of Tiger's many affairs to be publicly identified.

It also appears that Tiger, who just announced an indefinite break from golf, is in some type of counseling after Elin angrily insisted he see a therapist.

Will she stay with him? Should she stay with him? No matter how lucrative he makes the prenup, it's hard to imagine her giving him a second chance.

Tell us what you think: Elin Woods should totally ...

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:

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:

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 ...

Whose side are you on?

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 ...

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 ...

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!

Asking for understanding from fans, business partners and PGA Tour players, Tiger Woods says he is stepping away from golf indefinitely to rebuild his life.

In a statement released Friday evening, Woods acknowledged his infidelity for the first time. In brief past comments, he admitted only vague "transgressions."

Tiger Woods, Goatee

The world's top-ranked golfer has not been seen in public since smashing his SUV into a neighbor’s tree in an early morning accident on November 27.

He injured more than his face in that car crash.

A flood of reports linking him to a long list of mistresses have dominated news and demolished the reputation of the planet's most famous, successful athlete.

The text of Tiger's statement, issued on his official site and announcing his decision to take a break from the sport he has revolutionized, appears below:

"I am deeply aware of the disappointment and hurt that my infidelity has caused to so many people, most of all my wife and children ... I want to say again to everyone that I am profoundly sorry and that I ask forgiveness.

It may not be possible to repair the damage I've done, but I will do my best to try.

I would like to ask everyone, including my fans, the good people at my foundation, business partners, the PGA Tour, and my fellow competitors, for understanding.

What's most important now is that my family has the time, privacy, and safe haven we will need for personal healing. After much soul searching, I have decided to take an indefinite break from professional golf.

I need to focus my attention on being a better husband, father, and person.

Again, I ask for privacy for my family and I am especially grateful for all those who have offered compassion and concern during this difficult period."

What do you think of Tiger's decision and apology?
