Welcome, celebrity fans everywhere, to The Hollywood Gossip on this second day of the New Year. Below, we take a look back at the past week in gossip.

Some highlights from the last seven days in celebrity news:

  • In the week's top scandal, Charlie Sheen made death threats and assaulted Brooke Mueller ... at least that's the word on the street. It's hard to say where this leaves the couple, although both apparently want to reconcile.
  • Tiger Woods' whereabouts are still unknown. He was said to have partied with Rachel Uchitel (which she denied). Another rumor has Tiger holed up and recovering from plastic surgery after having his face broken by Elin.
  • Jon Gosselin's turbulent life took a new, unexpected twist when his apartment was allegedly trashed by a knife-wielding maniac. Hailey Glassman, the prime suspect, denies any vandalism. Her lawyer says she was framed.

Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller had a violent holiday altercation.

Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift seemed like the perfect couple ... for about a week. Fortunately for Lautner, he and his co-stars won our Celebrity of the Year honors!

  • In baby news, Chris Robinson had a little girl; Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart will have one; Kendra and Kourtney showcased photos of their sons.
  • In couple news, Taylor squared is history; Johnathon Schaech and Jana Kramer are engaged; Russell Brand and Katy Perry might be tying the knot.
  • The New Moon cast, collectively, won THG's third annual Celebrity of the Year honor. We also took a look back at some of the decade's top scandals.
  • R.I.P.: Mythbusters' Erik Gates and Avenged Sevenfold rocker Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan died too soon. Here's a little tribute to the celebrities who passed away in 2009. They are gone, but will never be forgotten!

Florida State police officers examined the upper body of Tiger Woods for injuries during a meeting with them last month, according to TV station WESH in Florida.

Tiger lifted up his shirt, says the station, during the December 1 meeting so that the troopers could discern if he had any additional injuries after his SUV crash.

The meeting took place four days after the post-Thanksgiving car wreck that blew the lid off Tiger's cheating, one of the biggest sex scandals in sports history.

Despite rumors that she roughed him up, Woods' wife, Elin Nordegren, was not charged with domestic abuse, as police determined Tiger suffered only a fat lip.

This report casts further doubt on the rumors going around that a scorned Elin messed up Tiger so bad with a 9-iron that he needed plastic surgery on his face.

Elin Woods may have been on the warpath after learning of Tiger's cheating, but it doesn't look like she assaulted him with a golf club ... at least not too severely.

It is widely believed that an enranged Elin Woods chased Tiger out of his house with a golf club and smashed the windows of his car in the minutes before he crashed.

She was never charged in the incident, however. Tiger was issued a traffic ticket and that was that. He has not been seen by anyone (that we know of) since Dec. 1.

The plastic surgery rumor was likely fueled in part by Tiger Woods' total disappearance - and announcement of an indefinite break from golf - over the past month.

Elin is skiing in Europe this weekend, with Tiger nowhere in sight. Despite his cheating with at least a dozen mistresses, she is considering reconciliation with him.

Should she stay or go? What do you think? Elin should ...

In 1995, Abe Pollin changed the name of his NBA franchise from the Washington Bullets to the Wizards because the "violent overtones" of bullets were upsetting.

One can only imagine how Pollin, who passed away a little over a month ago, would have reacted to this story about the Wizards' all-star player, Gilbert Arenas.

Arenas and a teammate, Javaris Crittenton, drew guns on each other during a Christmas Eve locker room argument over a gambling debt, according to reports.

Last week, the Wizards and Arenas acknowledged he stored unloaded firearms in a container in his locker, and the NBA said it was looking into the situation.

Arenas admitted he stores guns at the Verizon Center because he didn't want them in his house after his child's birth. But did he pull one on a teammate?

During that investigation, a dispute between Arenas and Crittenton - allegedly over the former not making good on a gambling debt - was revealed.


Confronted over money he allegedly owed, Gibert Arenas pulled a gun on Javaris Crittenton (0 and 8), who then also grabbed for a gun, the New York Post says.

Asked by the newspaper about the confrontation, Arenas denied pulling a gun on Crittenton. Arenas responded with a flurry of messages on Twitter, such as:

"I understand this is serious stuff ... but if u ever met me you know i dont do serious things im a goof ball this story today dont sound goofy to me."

That sounds like a denial ... sort of?

At practice Friday, Arenas declined to answer questions about the incident, but he did tell local TV station WJLA: "I like the story, it's intriguing."

Then, in response to questions whether anything had taken place between him and Crittenton, Arenas said: "I don't know." Well, that settles that.

"This is unprecedented," Billy Hunter of the NBA players' association said. "I've never heard of players pulling guns on each other in a locker room."

The Wizards "take this situation and the ongoing investigation very seriously," the team said. Washington, D.C., has some of the strictest gun laws in the U.S. The NBA allows players to legally possess firearms, but not at league facilities.

Despite his hospitalization a few days ago, Rush Limbaugh says there's nothing wrong with his heart. Or the nation's health care system, for that matter.

The conservative talk show host just couldn't resist turning his own health problems into a political dig at a New Year's Day news conference in Honolulu.

Rush, who suffered chest pains that landed him in a Hawaii hospital Wednesday, said Friday that tests revealed nothing medically wrong with his heart.

"The pain was real, and they don't know what caused it," Limbaugh said.

Rush Limbaugh: I'm fine - and so's the system!

Doctors said he did not have a heart attack and he doesn't suffer from heart disease, however, and he says he is remaining cautious after the scare.

Turning from himself to politics, Limbaugh declared yesterday that he got the best health care in the world "right here in the United States of America."

Politicizing one's own heart problem? Well, would you expect less?

"I don't think there's one thing wrong with the United States health system," Limbaugh said, referring to Congress' massive overhaul of the system.

Here's wishing Rush a speedy recovery.

Gloria Allred is a busy lady these days.

Not only is she repping Rachel Uchitel and possibly other Tiger Woods mistresses, she's being retained by a woman linked to another sports legend.

Shaquille O'Neal on GMA

Allred was recently hired by Vanessa Lopez, a model who claims NBA great Shaquille O’Neal is harassing her, according to a Radar Online report.

“I can confirm I’m representing Vanessa Lopez,” Allred said, declining to elaborate.

Shaq’s wife Shaunie recently filed for legal separation with intent to divorce, after a rocky marriage beset by numerous reports of Shaq cheating.

Will Gloria Allred attempt a hack-a-Shaq legal strategy?

Shaq’s estranged wife is executive producer of the VH-1 show Basketball Wives, which will show the ups and downs of being married to an NBA star.

One of the downsides? Their rampant cheating.

O'Neal, who plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers, was recently rumored to have become romantically involved with the fiancé of another NBA player.

In 2008, Atlanta hip hop artist Alexis Miller got a restraining order against O’Neal, claiming he threatened her after their relationship dissolved.

She said Shaq would call and breathe heavily into the phone, and at one point threatened that he would ruin her career. Standard harassment.

MTV's Jersey Shore returned with an all-new, festive, New Year's Eve episode last night, and lucky for you, The Hollywood Gossip has its weekly rundown.

Below, we break down the drama in Seaside Heights, N.J., on last night's episode five, "Just Another Day at the Shore," awarding and deducting points.

Leave a comment with your own pluses, minuses, and feedback ...

Ronnie cannot believe that while the rest of the gang tends to Snooki, who got knocked out in the previous episode, Mike is still trolling for chicks out on the boardwalk. Or, as Ronnie put it, "The Situation's creepin'." Plus 8.

One last note on the fight. Brad Ferro is a moron who should never have hit Snooki. But when you scream explatives at someone and flick drinks in his face, well, you can't say it was totally unprovoked. We're just saying, Snook. Minus 4.

These guys swear. A lot. Even in situations that don't really require profane language. There was a 20-second stretch of basically one long bleep. Plus 3.

Nice pit stains, JWOWW. Minus 2.

Ronnie, the biggest, most juiced up guido of them all, is a softie at heart and a total mama's boy who just wants his family to like Sam. Who knew?! Plus 4.

Tending to Snooki

THE AFTERMATH: The gang tends to Schnookems.

Snooki doesn't eat lobster because "they're alive when you kill it." Plus 3.

The girls go tanning. At a salon. In the summer. At the beach. Minus 3.

On a warm day, the gang goes on a boat. Plus 2 for conjuring up images of Andy Samberg and T-Pain. Plus 4 more because the boat is named "Forgetaboutit."

Pauly D boasts that his hair is waterproof and windproof. Impressive, but we're calling it Even because no one, not even the great DJ Pauly D, needs that much gel.

JWOWW does not come across well in this episode. A territorial animal who goes out looking to start fights, she belongs on the National Geographic Channel. Minus 7.

Mike, Vinny and Pauly D put the moves on a group of three girls, who Pauly D notes (with a certain element of surprise, but also with respect) are nice girls who actually want to be treated like human beings and not whores. Plus 8.

Really, JWOWW's boyfriend? Flowers? You can do better man. Minus 4.

Plus 5 for Vinny hooking up with his boss' girlfriend. Vinny had done very little this season so far, and this all-out d!ck move should lead to some quality drama. Plus 1 more for Vinny christening Pauly D "the ultimate guido."

TOTAL: +18! SEASON: +37! This was probably our favorite episode so far, because it didn't stick to one overdramatic story. We got to see the guidos and guidettes do their thing and amuse us in many different scenarios. Until next week ...

Elin Nordegren, the scorned wife of the world's #1 golfer and adulterer Tiger Woods, turns 30 years old on this first of January. Happy birthday, Elin!

If Tiger has any brains, he'll order up a Kobe special for his girl to get the year started off right. He doesn't want her coming at him wielding a 9-iron.

If you have any brains, you'll click to enlarge this gallery of Elin Woods pictures we put together below. We can't believe Tiger cheated on her either:

The new season of The Bachelor, starring Dallas pilot Jake Pavelka, premieres Monday on ABC, and the network has been running a juicy promo to hype it up.

Amid images of Jake shirtless, pumping iron and talking about what a lucky fella he is, a voiceover promises the season will being with a "shocking scandal.”

One of the contestants (presumably) can then be heard saying of someone: “She’s been having this sexual affair with somebody else in The Bachelor house.”

Cut to obligatory shots of two girls under the same blanket and another two girls jumping on each other in what looks like it could be a playful tickle fight.

While some reports have claimed that a contestant hooks up with a crew member, could at be that a contestant cheats on Jake ... with another contestant?

That would be a way to drive up the ratings, for sure ...
