Levi Johnston recently offered a classic defense of his deadbeat dad status, essentially claiming he is a mere deadbeat - he's got no cash to pay child support.

You need to have money and be withholding it to be a deadbeat dad, after all, and he says that's not so. Baby mama Bristol Palin, however, is not buying it.

Taking time away from calling out Family Guy on Facebook, Bristol has subpoenaed CNN, Playgirl and others to prove Levi is a liar earning more than he says.

A lawyer for Sarah Palin's daughter is scoffing at legal documents filed by Team Levi, which claim the teen he earned a mere pittance over the last few years.

Thus, he cannot pay the $1,688.42 a month in child support Bristol Palin seeks. We doubt that, and so does Bristol, who's calling his bluff in a court of law.

The gloves are coming off in this hilarious family feud.

Palin's lawyer issued subpoenas today to CNN, Playgirl, Entertainment Tonight, The Insider, Star Magazine, and The National Enquirer to discern how much they paid.

What Team Bristol believes is a smoking gun is Johnston's dubious claim in a court declaration that he made no more than $10,000 a year prior to last year, 2009.

But in the new docs, Palin's lawyer attached Levi's pay stub from 2008, showing that he raked in $18,594.50 from one employer - a construction company in Alaska.

If he lied about that, imagine what he's lying about regarding the half-dozen celebrity gossip programs and publications listed above. Clearly they paid him a little.

Also, come on. Playgirl is no Playboy, but those Levi Johnston nude photo spreads were big sellers! Surely he got a big ass advance or some royalties, right?

When Lisa Rinna is calling you out on plastic surgery, that's like ... we don't even know what. But it says a lot about the new, "improved" Heidi Montag.

Rather than being able to relate, the actress, who has had Juvederm fillers, Botox, lip-plumping, breast implants and more, thinks Heidi went too far.

In fact, she refuses to allow Heidi Montag plastic surgery photos inside her home, where her daughters, Delilah, 11, and Amelia, 8, could see them.

"I will tell you, I had to take that cover off the magazine before it came in the house," she says of People magazine, which touted Montag's surgery.

"We have two girls. I don’t think it is something you want to bring in and say, 'Oh, look.'" What they say when they see their mom is another story.

A couple of natural beauties right here.

Continues Lisa Rinna, "I take a lot of the covers off of magazines if they are just not appropriate. Obviously, we are raising two young girls. Anything that has to do with body or weight issues, I think you just have to be really careful.”

Yes you do. Such good parenting.

"That magazine has changed so much. I was actually on the cover a few times [in the '80s]. In those days, they had stories about people who hadn't had their faces cut open. They had stories about things that were really going on."

"I don't know. I mean, plastic surgery?"

Next think you know, Rinna, who has taken it all off for Playboy in the recent past, will be bashing the magazine's Heidi Montag nude spread as a bad example too.

Remember Adnan?

While Tiger Woods resurfaced in public for the first time in nearly three months yesterday, Britney Spears' ex-beau did the same, albeit with less fanfare.

In court.

No, not for the hit-and-run either. For something a little bit more vanilla ... if anything about Adnan Ghalib could be considered vanilla. He is a shady individual.

Adnan Ghalib Mug Shot

Nice landing strip, Adnan.

It appears Britney Spears isn't the only California resident that the photographer has stiffed ... if you know what we mean! Dude owes thousands in back taxes!

In the last few years, Adnan Ghalib apparently d!cked over the entire population by not paying on time. Basically, he's like Octomom. Eh, no, not that bad.

Still, Adnan Ghalib didn't pay $7,565.97, more than $3,000 of which is late fees.

The moral of the story? Pay up. And don't date shady celebrity gossip photogs.

After nearly three months of rumors, speculation and salacious gossip, the first actual, visual Tiger Woods sighting since Thanksgiving night has been recorded.

Dude went jogging in Florida yesterday. Big news, we know!

Wearing a black cap, Nike shirt and gray shorts, the world's #1 golfer, who had not been seen since wrecking his car November 27, was running with his trainer.

A source says the photo of Woods was taken "with his consent."

The new image surfaced just hours after his agent announced Tiger Woods' press conference coming up Friday, in which he will finally break his silence.

Tiger Woods jogging. This is front-page news.

Having been outed as a sleaze with at least a dozen mistresses, Woods "will be speaking to a small group of friends, colleagues and close associates" tomorrow.

"While Tiger feels that what happened is fundamentally a matter between him and [Elin Woods], he also recognizes that he has hurt and let down many other people who were close to him," the statement says. "He also let down his fans."

"He wants to begin the process of making amends."

Although the press conference will not be an "open media event," arrangements are supposedly being made to "pool" the athlete's remarks to the wider media.

He will not answer questions tomorrow. No word if wife Elin will be on hand, or if Rachel Uchitel will be there covering the event as a correspondent for Extra.

After an emotional episode of The Bachelor Monday, Jake Pavelka has narrowed his list of aspiring wives from 25 to two: Tenley Molzahn and Vienna Girardi.

But has he already made up his mind - and is it the wrong choice? According to reports, one of the final two has a second guy on her mind back home.

Guess what? It's not Tenley!

Lee Smith, the ex-boyfriend of Vienna Girardi back home in Florida, is very much still in the picture with ditzy one, the new issue of Us Weekly proclaims.

"She wants to get back together with him," a source says, noting that Vienna remains "head over heels" for Smith, to perhaps rather unhealthy extremes.

Jake's Mistake

MISTAKE BY THE JAKE: Pavelka is asking for it by picking Vienna Girardi, which he reportedly does for reasons unknown. Lunacy, perhaps. Or her bubbly charm.

When The Bachelor wrapped production, Vienna rushed home to reunite with Smith, only to find he had taken up with local waitress Cassie Chamberlain.

"[Vienna] got so angry, she walked right into the house and to the bedroom," a source reveals, claiming Vienna "physically threatened" her and Smith.

The couple "woke up to see Vienna standing at the foot of the bed holding a wine bottle, like she was going to hit them with it." Better run for it, Jake!

THG NOTE: This is different than her ex-husband, who claims Vienna cheated on him while he was in Iraq and took all his money to pay for a boob job.

Okay, so if she was so in love, why would Girardi participate on The Bachelor? "To be famous," the source says. "She never thought she'd make it so far."

Who should Jake pick on the season finale?

Embattled golf legend and record-setting cocktail waitress skirt chaser Tiger Woods is set to break his silence Friday at a press conference held by the PGA.

Tiger Woods will appear in person at 11 a.m. to issue a statement, but there will be no question and answer session, according to Darren Rovell of CNBC.

Tiger Woods Playing Golf

According to Tiger's agent, Mark Steinberg, he plans to apologize via prepared remarks for his behavior, while discussing his golf return and future plans.

He will be speaking with a small group of his friends and colleagues during the conference, reports say. No word on whether wife Elin will be present.

What will Tiger Woods say in his prepared statement?

Charlie Gasparino of Fox Business Network said "sponsors have been alerted by his reps that a public apology from Tiger Woods is imminent." He continues:

"We don't have this yet from Tiger's representatives, but I'm getting this from reliable sources that something is coming down the pike, and really soon."

What do you think will come of this? Is releasing a statement with no Q&A, and no interview, the right move for a man whose image has been shattered?

More details to come as the story develops ...

Jon Gosselin may be jobless, generally lame and stuck with a stubby package, but at least one burden is off his back. His legal dispute with TLC has been settled.

"TLC has reached a settlement with Jon Gosselin and will be undertaking procedural steps to conclude the litigation," the network said in a statement Wednesday.

All terms of the settlement are confidential.

"The whole Gosselin family remain under contract with TLC," the network said. Hmm. Wonder if Jon played his last available chip and agreed to pimp out his kids.

While Jon & Kate Plus 8 remains dead, a source close to the situation says that the network "hopes they will soon be able to film the family again" in some form.

Hair Club For Men

FREE OF TLC: Jon Gosselin finally got TLC out of his hair. No worries, though - the plugs and copious amounts of gel are still firmly in place up atop that dome.

The ugly legal battle started with TLC trying to phase him out of the show, which sparked his pulling the plug on the hit show citing an exploitation of his kids.

That prompted a lawsuit filed by TLC against Gosselin for alleged breach of contract, claiming that he was making paid TV appearances without their consent.

Which was pretty obvious.

TLC sought and won an injunction effectively making Jon STFU. Later, Gosselin filed a $5-million counterclaim, saying that the network damaged his career.

All water under the bridge now, though. Jon is free to go back to ... whatever it is he's doing. What's the word for it ... hmm ... oh yeah, Morgan Christie.

Whitney Port hasn't been lucky in love since moving from The Hills to The City (and thus LA to NYC). First there was Jay Lyon. Then Freddie Fackelmayer.

Tools. Particularly the latter.

Well, if recent rumors are true, things might finally be looking up. Whitney Port has a new love interest and he's the star of an MTV reality show as well!

It's The Situation!

Kidding.

Seriously, she and Ben Nemtin of The Buried Life are dating. "I've kind of been hanging out with Whitney when I am in New York," he told Ryan Seacrest.

Ben Nemtin is the new boyfriend of Whitney Port. Unless this is just a PR stunt for The Buried Life, which would totally not surprise us even a little. That said, cute couple!

Asked him whether the two were dating, Ben responded that they had just met and once again added that they hung out whenever he was in New York.

Sources say they are hanging out as more than friends, though, and Whitney Port certainly has been tweeting a lot about The Buried Life these days.

Makes you think!

"If U love dancing as much as I do watch @theburiedlife compete in a krump competition on mtv U guys better teach me your moves," Whitney wrote.

Sounds like confirmation to us! You better be good to our girl Ben Nemtin. You better be on The City, too, since MTV already has you under contract.

Britney Spears is featured as the model for Candie's spring 2010 ads, with famed photographers Annie Leibovitz, Mark Seliger and Terry Richardson doing the honors.

The campaign's name: "Britney Spears Through the Lens." Deep.

"Annie, Mark and Terry are three of the biggest photographers in the world and I am honored to be working with them for my Candie’s ads," Spears said in a statement.

"It was an amazing shoot, and I know my fans are going to love the cool images." We're sure they are too, as they eat, drink and breathe all things Britney.

Here's the first of many new Candie's ads ...

Britney Spears for Candie's ... only at Kohl's.

The photo shoot, which took place at Paramount studios in Hollywood late last year, had three different themes for each photographer featuring Spears.

Leibovitz's photos feature Spears against an industrial backdrop, while Richardson photographed the superstar on a plain white set with colorful props.

Seliger created elaborate sets, such as a French burlesque-inspired pink dressing room and a field with a custom-designed pink Harley-Davidson bike.

"This is the most exciting shoot we have ever produced for Candie's," Dari Marder, the chief marketing officer of Iconix, said today. We don't doubt it.

Troubled boxing champion Evander Holyfield and his wife Candi are reaching out to the only man they say can solve their domestic woes: TV blowhard Dr. Phil!

Seriously. They feel the way to resolve their marriage issues - she wants him to turn up the heat, he beats her for not putting God first - is through his format.

Candi Holyfield filed, but then agreed to drop a request for a protective order against Evander over that incident. Today, they issued a joint statement saying:

"We are in agreement that we both are moving forward to reach out to Dr. Phil one-on-one as we believe he is the only one who can help us at this time."

The ONLY one who can help them. They wrote this.

"We each admire and respect Dr. Phil for his down to earth and heartfelt approach in working with couples and relationships in a positive and uplifting way."

If you're Evander and Candi Holyfield, why resolve your private issues with a real therapist when you can do so on TV with this guy running the show?
