Tiger Woods was smitten with O.G. mistress Rachel Uchitel, telling her he loved her and even calling her after his car accident, according to reports.

In the days following his post-Thanksgiving crash, which ultimately exposed a series of Tiger mistresses to the world, Rachel was sooo on his mind.

Even as police and celebrity gossip scrutiny began to envelop him, Tiger repeatedly texted her, telling her he wanted to figure out a way to see her.

It bears repeating, because it is so unbelievable, that this took place the National Enquirer broke the story that he and Rachel Uchitel had an affair.

Also unbelievable? It happened after Tiger's wife Elin saw him texting Rachel, accosted him, took his phone and called Rachel the night of the crash.

It is theorized that this is when Tiger left a voicemail for Jaimee Grubbs begging her to take her name off her phone, fearing an irate Elin would call her too.

A few hours later, Tiger wrapped his SUV around a tree.

Rachel Uchitel allegedly had an affair with Tiger Woods for several months, an affair she has told people was "intense" and a "real relationship."

She also told people Tiger had pursued her for four months prior to their first sexual encounter and was very "possessive" and "jealous" of others.

Jealous when he wasn't fantasizing about Rachel getting ransacked during Ambien-fueled threesomes with Derek Jeter and David Boreanaz, that is.

One of Rachel's friends says Tiger told her that he loved her more than once. No wonder he apparently thought it'd be worth it to buy her silence.

Tiger Woods' mother-in-law, Barbro Holmberg, is in stable condition at an Orlando hospital after being taken from his home earlier Tuesday morning.

Medics responded to a 911 call at Woods' home and Holmberg, the mother of Tiger's wife Elin Nordegren, was admitted after suffering stomach pain.

Sheriff's spokesman Jim Solomons said a 911 call from Woods' home at 2:35 a.m. EST Tuesday and transferred it to Orange County Fire Rescue.

Officials say Barbro Holmberg is in stable condition but few other details are known at this time. Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, did not comment.

According to WESH-TV, Barbro refused transport, but was later listed as an advanced life support patient and taken on a stretcher to the hospital.

Barbro Holmberg, Elin Nordegren's mother, will reportedly be fine.

What treatment she needed is not clear, but advanced life support is a term often used by medics/EMTs for resuscitation that extends beyond CPR.

The strange thing about Holmberg being transported via ambulance from Tiger's house to the hospital (the same one he went to two weeks ago)?

Reports surfaced yesterday that Elin Woods moved out on Tiger after his many affairs, and despite his many efforts to hold his marriage together.

Is that even true? Was she at Tiger's house with her mom trying to work things out with her cheating husband? So many questions unanswered.

UPDATE, 4:29 P.M. EST: Barbro was released from the hospital Tuesday afternoon and is now recuperating at Woods' home in Windermere, Fla.

More details to follow as the story develops ...

Former Today show host Bryant Gumbel has lung cancer, the 61-year-old revealed this morning quite guest hosting Live with Regis & Kelly.

The veteran journalist revealed that he had surgery last month to relieve a malignant tumor in his chest. Part of his lung was removed.

He will be seeing his surgeon again next week.

"We had told a few people, we told my family, obviously. I even kept it from my staff at Real Sports," he said. "So I'm okay for the time being."

He joked, "I'm hoping they green light me to play golf again."

We're pulling for his full and prompt recovery!

Get well soon, Bryant Gumbel!

As if trying to pass a controversial health care reform bill and escalating a war while trying to instill a sense of world peace weren't enough on Barack Obama's plate.

Now he has to deal with being lumped in with the world's most famous duplicitous sex-addict sleaze on the cover of Golf Digest! The POTUS cannot catch a break ...

Fortunately (for Barack), this is Photoshopped, and not a real image.

Golf Digest says it has no plans to pull the issue in light of all the scandalous recent Tiger Woods news, and despite the wealth of unintentional comedy therein.

The cover story, after all, is "10 Tips Obama can take from Tiger." LOL. Number 10: Look ... let me be clear ... you need to please your name off your phone!

There's also a complementary list of 10 Things Tiger Woods could learn from Barack Obama. Not cheating on your wife with seven-plus mistresses, maybe?

That list could probably be increased to a few thousand things.

Jon Gosselin's attorney, Mark Heller, is berating Jon's so-called pals Michael Lohan and Kate Major for selling out the dumbass dad in depositions last week.

Of TLC's court case against Jon, Lohan stated that he felt "stabbed in back" by Gosselin for backing out of and then denying some potential business deals.

Contrarily, Heller says, Gosselin barely even knew Lohan (he even says as much in that leaked tape) and suggested Lohan was just using Jon for publicity:

"It's regrettable that Michael Lohan is publicly discussing his relationship with Jon. Jon doesn't want to dignify anything Mr. Lohan is addressing in the media."

"I think it's very clear that Jon did not enter into any arrangement with Mr. Lohan and has done nothing of a negative nature in his dealings with Mr. Lohan."

Jon is Such a Tool

Jon Gosselin's mouthpiece summarily dissed Kate Major as well.

"Kate Major has basically used Jon Gosselin as her Obama stimulus package," he says. "Every time she runs low on funds, she comes up with another story."

That's a good one by Heller. Major says it ain't so, though, and maintains that Gosselin reneged on legally binding agreements for her to be his assistant.

A legally binding cocktail napkin? That'll hold up in court.

Lohan and Major are the only two people who have been deposed so far, with Jon's on-off-on-off-on-off ex-girlfriend Hailey Glassman on tap later today.

This Thursday, Gosselin and TLC will be in court to hash out his breach of contract dispute. Heller says Gosselin "feels extremely optimistic" about the case.

That could be all talk, as Jon is on the hook for millions of dollars by reneging on an exclusivity clause in his  contract by trying to score deals on the side.

For his part, Jon claims TLC took advantage of him, forced him into veritable inventured servanthood and exploited his eight cute little kids for profit.

Firefighters in Orange County, Fla., responded to a medical situation at the home of Tiger Woods this morning after a 911 call was received at 2:36 a.m.

And you thought this story couldn't possibly get any crazier.

A radio log showed an adult woman was transported to Health Central Hospital in Ocoee, Fla., via ambulance. The patient initially refused transport.

She was later listed as an advanced life support patient.

Several sites have reported that Barbro Holmberg, the mother of Tiger Woods' wife, Elin Nordegren, had arrived in the area to be with her yesterday.

It is not known if she was the patient, but video from the hospital showed a middle-aged woman (Barbro is 57) being removed from an ambulance ...

Stretcher

A woman was taken from Tiger Woods' home by ambulance today.

A black Cadillac Escalade was seen leaving the hospital shortly after the ambulance arrived. Its tag was similar to the one involved in Tiger Woods' crash.

Woods owns a second black Escalade, for what it's worth.

The mysterious 911 call and hospitalization comes on the heels of reports that Tiger's wife moved out of the Isleworth, Fla., mansion she shared with Tiger.

The number of Tiger Woods mistresses we can identify has reached seven, while some sources say the actual number may be at least 10 if not higher.

Several celebrity news  sites said Elin Nordegren Woods had enough and moved out of the couple's $2.6 million home and into another nearby home.

That home is also owned by Woods.

UPDATE: ESPN has confirmed that the hospitalized woman was in fact Barbro Holmberg, Tiger's mother-in-law. More details to follow shortly ...

You may exhale now. Audrina Patridge will be back on The Hills next season.

After weeks of negotiations, Us reports she will return: “I can officially confirm that Audrina Patridge will appear in the 6th season of The Hills," her rep said.

"Production will resume shortly after the new year. Next week, Audrina begins filming the pilot episode of her currently unnamed spinoff show, also for MTV."

"The new show will be produced by Mark Burnett."

Nice plug for the new show, rep.

In an exciting twist, a source close to Audrina Patridge, says it's possible that both of her reality shows will be intertwined. There's only one problem we see:

There would have to be material worth watching involving Audrina on either show, and there really hasn't been in multiple seasons ... if at all, honestly.

How many more times can we sit and watch her whine about Justin-Bobby and say "I'm done with you!" when we know it's not even true? Just saying.

In any case, she greased the machine over at the network for serious dough: "She is getting six figures per episode," an insider dished. "It's a lucrative deal."

While that sum sounds absolutely ludicrous, and without question it is, when Jersey Shore is MTV's next hottest program, Audrina has some serious leverage.

Jersey Shore is MTV's newest reality "hit."

But advertisers can't wait to hit the road.

After a flat-out ridiculous series premiere, Domino's Pizza pulled its ads from the show. American Family Insurance noticed its ads running and did the same.

The episode, which "outraged" at least one major Italian group, is going to be running only promos for other crappy MTV shows during breaks at this rate.

That said if you're an advertiser looking to sell hair gel, fist-pumping instructional DVDs, tramp stamps, spinning rims or gold chains, there are openings!

The cast of MTV's Jersey Shore. It's a lifestyle.

Meanwhile, according to new reports, the Jersey Shore Conventions and Tourism Board isn't smitten with the way their turf comes off on the program.

The tagline of "hottest, tannest, craziest Guidos" may play a role in that.

"We're flattered that MTV thinks we're an interesting enough destination to warrant an entire reality series," the tourism group said in a statement.

"But the national TV audience is hardly getting the full story." MTV is providing a one-dimensional, dramatized version of a very small group of visitors."

"We welcome visitors to come here, even during the holiday season, to enjoy a cultural diversity that in no way reflects what is seen on MTV."

We would really, really hope so.

Michelle Duggar of TLC's 18 Kids and Counting (she's the one who gave birth to 18 kids with one on the way) was hospitalized, but is thankfully doing fine.

She was rushed to an Arkansas hospital after a scare regarding her pregnancy with Baby No. 19, not due until spring, but that ultimately wasn't the reason.

"This weekend, Michelle Duggar was admitted to an Arkansas hospital," says a network rep. "The pain from a gallstone was generating some contractions."

"Just to be safe, she was airlifted to a Little Rock, Ark., hospital, so in the unlikely event that she had to be delivered early, she would be close to a NICU center."

Jim Bob and wife Michelle Duggar of TLC.

"Though there were some fears that the baby was in trouble, it soon was discovered to be solely the stone causing discomfort. Michelle is resting comfortably."

The baby is fine, and has a few more months until it joins Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar and their brood of 18 kids - who have to get by without mom for a bit.

Hey, at least their folks are still together. Cough, Jon Gosselin.

"Doctors want to observe Michelle in the hospital for the next couple of days," says the rep, "The hope is that any surgery can be delayed until after she delivers."

Get well soon, Michelle!

Shayne Lamas pleaded no contest to a lesser charge and dodged a DUI bullet.

The reality "star" got her case to go away when she admitted to a "wet reckless," a term for reckless driving that is alcohol-elated but not as serious as a DUI.

She was given three years probation, ordered to pay a fine of $300 plus penalties, and ordered to watch a 10-hour loop of only the Shauna Sand sex tape.

Just kidding, but even more morbidly, she has to go to the morgue to get a taste of the consequences of DUI, and she must take an alcohol ed program.

Shame on Shayne

Amazingly, there was not a reality TV camera in sight to see The Bachelor winner and Leave it to Lamas star get herself off the hook! She's a changed gal!
