Dina Parr is not a Tiger Woods mistress, because he wasn't married at the time he was dating her. But his high school sweetheart has a story to tell, too.

Dating back to long before he made celebrity gossip (or even sports) headlines, the now-infamous cheater was devastated by his own dad's philandering.

Parr, who dated Woods in high school and into freshman year in college, tells E! Tiger would call her from the road to talk about his parents' relationship.

"[Tiger] would just call me, crying and say, 'My dad is with another woman,' and that would be all he could say," she recalls. "He would be so upset."

"I just tried to be there for him and listen to him."

Tiger Woods with his high school sweetheart, Dina Parr.

Woods was famously close to his dad, Earl, who died in 2006 (Jamie Jungers, mistress #4, claims Tiger was cheating on wife Elin with her at the time).

"He loved his father," Dina Parr said. "It was the one thing about his dad he could never get over. So yeah, it's interesting that he's doing the same thing."

Interesting is one way of putting it.

More than a dozen different women (and 11 who we know by name) have been mentioned in reports about Woods' affairs since the end of last month.

In announcing Friday that he was taking "an indefinite break" from golf, the fallen star finally admitted in so many words to being unfaithful to Elin.

Chris Henry, a receiver with the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals, was seriously injured after falling out of the back of a pickup truck during a domestic dispute.

Following the incident with his fiancee, Loleini Tonga, Henry was found on a Charlotte road "apparently suffering life-threatening injuries" police say.

Henry was transported to Carolinas Medical Center, the local trauma unit, but spokesman Scott White said he was not listed in hospital records.

Police officers say Henry jumped into the bed of the pickup truck as his unidentified fiance was driving away from an area home. Officials said:

"A domestic situation continued between the operator and Mr. Henry. At some point while driving, Henry came out of the back of the vehicle."

Chris Henry, 26, is badly hurt following an incident with Loleini Tonga.

Henry broke his left forearm in a win against the Baltimore Ravens on November 8, had surgery and was placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Charlotte is home to his Loleini Tonga’s parents.

"We are aware he was in an accident and that his injuries are very serious," spokesman Jack Brennan said of the Henry situation. "We are obviously staying in touch with the situation and are ready to offer whatever assistance we can."

Henry is in the last year of his contract with the Bengals, who let him go after his fifth arrest following the 2007 season, but later brought him back.

Is Sarah Palin going rogue? You betcha, and with a permanent marker this time! Check out what she just did to a nice John McCain 2008 campaign visor!

The former governor and last year's failed V.P. nominee is on vacation with her son Trig, her daughter Piper and her heterosexual spouse Todd in Hawaii.

Sarah chose to wear a visor from the '08 campaign, and for whatever reason, decided she didn't want to advertise the Republican on top of the ticket.

Check out her vote against John McCain ... scrawled with black ink:

  • Palin in Hawaii
  • John McCain Who?!

Sarah Palin had no other visors around, but did have a marker.

In addition to the odd political non-statement emblazoned on her dome, Palin's t-shirt read "If you don’t love America, then why don’t you get the hell out." 

Spoken like a true ambassador.

We apologize for a little good-natured ribbing at Sarah's expense. But even her supporters have to see the humor in (or at least scratch their heads at) this.

Do you like Sarah Palin?

She's the queen of country, but Carrie Underwood would to settle down and a family someday. This is a modest life goal, but a timeless, wonderful one.

It's not really news, but 1. It gives us a chance to stare at her new Self magazine cover, and 2. Not every celebrity news article must be a scandal!

In January's Self, the country star gets specific about her ideal family size: "Someday I'd like to start a family. Not a big one, but not a small one."

The middle ground between "big" and "small"? "Two kids is good," the Oklahoman explains. "Three is probably fine. Four?"

"Somebody's getting something done, because we ain't having five!"

You got that, Mike Fisher?

Don't even THINK of knocking Carrie Underwood up more than 3-4 times!

The singer has been dating the Canadian hockey player for just over a year. Underwood may not be a pro athlete, but she tries to stay in killer shape herself.

"I have Exercise TV on cable," she says. "Jillian Michael's videos kick your butt. That and If I'm ticked off, I get a punching bag and beat the crap out of it."

She does check out Carrie Underwood photos in magazines, too.

"I love it when I feel good about myself," she admits. "I'll look at a photo and think, 'My arms look great!' - and then I go work out on my arms."

"Once you're enjoying things about your body, you realize how much you want to keep them that way or make them that much better."

It's been a couple of weeks since Tiger Woods was linked to Rachel Uchitel. And Jamie Grubbs. And Kalika Moquin. And Jamie Jungers, and Mindy Lawton, Cori Rist, Holly Sampson, Joslyn James, Loredana Jolie, Julie Postle and Theresa Rogers.

We've become numb to the ever-growing list of Tiger Woods mistresses at this point. Dude bedded waitesses, we get it. It's not like he was linked to a celebrity.

Or was he?!

According to Star, none other than Jessica Simpson was in "Tiger’s little black book" and days before her split with Tony Romo, she had a "sizzling meeting" with the fallen golf star at the AT&T National Pro-Am golf tournament in Bethesda, Md.

"Tiger liked what he saw and let her know it," a source tells Star, and Jess was fighting with Tony - Tiger's weekend golf partner - so "she gave as good as she got."

TOUCHY FEELY: Look at Tiger's hand ... dude's making his move!

We're not sure what that means. Presumably they mean flirting, and not other things "Jessica gave" as good as she got. But it's Tiger Woods. You never know.

Continues the eyewitness:

“Jessica felt Tony wasn’t paying attention to her, so she was like, ‘What the heck!’ She decided she would have fun with Tiger whether it bothered Tony or not.”

Phone numbers were exchanged. Then emails. Before long, bodily fluids.

Okay, we made that last part up, but would you really be surprised? Didn't think so. We can't wait 'til Jessica moves in for the kill once Elin Woods leaves Tiger.

We know what will happen after that, too. She'll get way too clingy and annoying and he'll dump her, but hey, she can always slum it with Billy Corgan later.

Rihanna has beaten Chris Brown pretty badly ... in terms of first-week album sales for their newly-released efforts. Not the way Chris ... well, you know.

Brown's new album Graffiti debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard charts, selling 102,000 copies (Susan Boyle's I Dreamed a Dream sold 582,000 at No. 1).

That's quite a bit less than his ex, Rihanna, sold when Rated R debuted last month, entering the charts at No. 3 with sales of 181,000 in its first week.

Chris' sales didn't knock any socks off, but could've been worse.

Imagine if Walmart actually refused to sell Brown's CD - as "MechanicalDummy" (emphasis on Dummy) himself erroneously ranted on Twitter Monday.

Or imagine if he hadn't beaten the crap out of Rihanna.

Chris Brown Graffiti Cover

Still, 102,000 isn't too bad. It's 20 percent of the way to gold certification in one week, and after the way his year began, those sales look pretty solid.

He might wanna check his facts before Tweeting, though.

Monday, the "Changed Man" threw an online hissy fit over a perceived slight by Walmart. After visiting a Connecticut store that didn't have his album, Chris flipped out over the (incorrect) assumption that the retail giant banned him altogether.

"I'm tired of this s--t," he wrote on his now defunct account. "Major stores r blackballing my CD. Not stockin the shelves and lying to costumers."

Graffiti is, by all accounts, fully stocked by the Wal, however. Either Chris just didn't see it or that particular store just hadn't put it out yet.

Either way, don't quit anger management classes yet, C-dog.

Before Tiger Woods took his crown, David Letterman was the king of extramarital sex scandals this year. The Late Show host's involved an extortion plot.

Prosecutors in the case released transcripts of conversations clandestinely recorded of Robert "Joe" Halderman, who allegedly blackmailed Letterman.

"The defendant's threat was simple: Unless Mr. Letterman paid $2 million, defendant Halderman would make public information about a purported sexual relationship between Mr. Letterman and his assistant," said the feds in court papers.

Why $2 million?

"Because that amount would enable him to visit his son [in California] without needing to demand more money from Mr. Letterman in the future."

That's one expensive plane ticket.

According to excerpts, Halderman's intent was "crystal clear" in that was going to claim the negotiations were a business transaction for a screenplay.

Late Show Host

Robert "Joe" Halderman stands accused of trying to extort David Letterman.

He would use that as legal cover to shake down Letterman, who slept with ex-assistant Stephanie Birkitt, who was living with Halderman at the time.

Prosecutors rejected Halderman's screenplay story, citing remarks he made about storing "copies of the dirt he had" on David Letterman just in case.

"The only way to be sure that I never talk to anybody is for somebody to kill me. Well, you know, I don't want that to happen," Halderman said.

What the hell does he think this is, The Departed?

He apparently thought so: "I'm not sure how crazy this guy is, or um, how dangerous he might be," Halderman said, per court papers. "Should I be fired, mysteriously ... if my house burns down ... any number of things."

"I have no idea who or what he is or is capable of."

A hearing in the case is set for January 19.

Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of the late Kurt Cobain, is now under the guardianship of the rock legend's mom and sister after her mom lost custody.

In turn, Frances Bean has incurred Courtney Love's Facebook wrath.

Courtney Love, Frances Bean Cobain

No reason was given for the guardianship change or her loss of custody, as the Cobains say it's a private matter. But Love recently ranted on Facebook:

"I hate to sound cold but any kid of mine who pulls this $h!t has lost her position. She was deceptive, she lied and even worse she's lying to herself."

"My daughter is not always honest."

Love says Frances Bean Cobain isn't as rich as she thinks and is "clearly deluded" if she thinks she can buy her grandmother a "small house in L.A."

Frances Bean Cobain and her estranged, insane mother Courtney Love.

Says Frances' 45-year-old crazy mom, "I'd love to see how that works ... She thinks she has all this money. The point is, I have all the money she has."

"You could've asked for emancipation..." Love cyber-scolds her daughter. "You realize this will put you in juvenile family circus three times in your life?"

Courtney says Frances has "bad people around her and wants it both ways." She then proceeded to call out several of Kurt Cobain's family members and even tells her daughter that her beloved paternal grandmother "killed your father."

Wow. That's even worse than accusing Jamie Spears of molesting Britney.

Signing off, Love does say, "I love you and always will unconditionally."

A court hearing on the matter has been scheduled for February 10.

Like, OMG. Angelina Jolie was apparently thisclose to ending it all before Brad Pitt heroically saved her from a rash suicide attempt, a certain tabloid reports.

While we can't avoid giving the National Enquirer its due - they blew the lid off Isaiah Washington f-word gate, John Edwards' love child with Rielle Hunter and Tiger Woods' affair with Rachel Uchitel - we're not buying this for a second.

Whether you believe it or not is up to you, but the gossip rag reports that after recently falling into a deep depression, Angelina Jolie attempted suicide!

Fortunately, life partner Brad Pitt sprung into action to make sure the mother of his 147 children wasn't Taking Lives - wow, she walked into that one.

The sultry brunette beauty confessed to Brad that she was afraid her suicidal tendencies would return after learning he had made plans to move out.

That would seriously drive us to end it all too.

BRANGELINA BEDLAM! Phew, Brad saved Angie in the nick of time.

Not that this actually took place, mind you, but we're guessing when the Enquirer editors made it up, Jennifer Aniston somehow factored into the mix.

Fortunately (and laughably) Pitt assured her the separation was temporary, and their love would survive the test. This is Oscar-worthy material here.

"Brad was in France checking on their chateau recently, and Angelina was in Los Angeles with the kids when she called him in a panic," a friend divulged.

"She told him, 'When you're not around, I get these terrible feelings. I got the same feelings when I was younger, and that's when I tried to kill myself.'

"Angelina said, 'I feel lost without you. I'm being abandoned.'" Thankfully, though, Angelina Jolie is still among the living as of right now. Good job Brad!

Nice Brad reassured high-strung Angelina he wasn't leaving for good, even if they're apart, saying "I'll always be there for you and the kids, I promise.'"

More on her bitter showdown with Jen next week, we're sure, thanks to tabloids have an In Case of Slow Gossip Week, Create Brangelina Gossip policy.
