Former Alaska Governor and current famous person Sarah Palin says she meant no disrespect to Sen. John McCain by blacking out his name on a sun visor.

On vacation in Hawaii, Palin for some reason chose to wear a visor from her campaign emblazoned with McCain's name scribbled out with black marker.

Palin said she just wore it to stay under the radar (!?) and that the hotel where she and her family were staying had to chase away five photographers.

Here's the text of the statement she released today:

"I am so sorry if people took this silly incident the wrong way. I adore John McCain, support him 100 percent and will do everything I can to support his reelection."

"As everyone knows, I was honored and proud to run with him. And Todd and I were with him in D.C. just a week ago. So much for trying to be incognito."

So, in summation, Sarah Palin is saying that:

  1. The visor could transform one of the most famous people in politics into a plan ol' ordinary soccer mom on a Hawaiian beach (wearing a shirt that said "If you don't like America, why don't you get the hell out?" no less).
  2. Blacking out small print that simply read "McCain," as in her former running mate, somehow fit into this brilliant plan to make the visor more discreet.
  3. The gesture was entirely devoid of motive.

Eh, we'll buy it. Consider the source.

Jon Gosselin is almost ready to (legally) become a free man. Looks like Hailey Glassman won't be there to help him celebrate his divorce, though.

The 22-year-old ex-fling of the reality star was spotted kissing celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman at a Pennsylvania bar on Wednesday.

Jon and Hailey Glassman

All the while, Jon Gosselin was fuming mad inside his car.

Despite claims that he’s over Glassman, the douchebag dad seemed shaken up that Hailey's moved on and found a new guy with a "real" job.

“Hailey and Damon really like one another and they have started to date casually," a source said. “While Hailey was inside doing promotional work, Jon just kept on bombarding her with texts from his car, trying to get in and see her.

“He was messaging her: 'I want to talk. I just want to talk.' Eventually a couple of us went out and told him to stop but he refused to go away."

WTF JON!?! Hailey Glassman's been saying that a lot lately.

“Eventually, Hailey took one of his calls and barked 'Leave me alone! Stop stalking me please!' He seemed to get the message and drove away from the venue, much to everybody’s relief because she wants nothing to do with the guy."

As for the new man in the life of Hailey Glassman: “Damon really likes Hailey and wants to get to know her, so Gosselin, just stay out of the picture!”

Thanks to a recent court ruling, at least he'll be off of your TV set.

Jon and Hailey, who are rumored to be still living together despite a contentious breakup, have also been at odds in the courtroom lately.

Deposed by lawyers from TLC who are suing Jon Gosselin for breach of contract, Hailey labeled Jon a "monster" and a "master manipulator."

Next up for Jon? A January court date. For Hailey? She'll be refereeing a celebrity boxing event this Friday at the Philadelphia Airport Ramada.

The main event pits John Wayne Bobitt against local fighter Tony Fusco.

Lady Gaga is a real pro at going down.

Or something. For the second time in her current Monster Ball tour, the supposed hermaphrodite landed flat on her a$$ during a rendition of "Bad Romance."

The spill took place in Vancouver. A video of it appears below. Peep it below, because even if it's your favorite celeb, an on-stage spill is good for a chuckle.

On the plus side, she recovered before she could miss a ra-ra-ah-ah-ahhhh! Also, unlike certain performers, she clearly sings in concert. A novel concept!

Talking to you, Britney Spears, you hack ...

Tiger Woods' rampant and recently-exposed marital infidelity did not stop him from being named the Athlete of the Decade by The Associated Press yesterday.

It's caused his wife to stop wanting to be married to him, though.

Tiger Woods' Kids

A source close to Woods' wife, Elin Nordegren, told ABC News that a "divorce is 100 percent on" and it's only a question of timing and logistics at this point.

Elin Woods has already been seen without her wedding ring.

"It would not appear that Elin Nordegren is going to be standing by her man," Kate Coyne of People told Good Morning America in an interview Wednesday.

"Sources have told us that Elin has told us the marriage is over and she's looking to divorce Tiger," even if at the same time, "she's not rushing the process."

"She's going to take her sweet time. The way this is playing out [Elin Woods] wants all the dirty laundry to be out on the table before she signs anything."

Elin and Tiger Woods will divorce before long, sources report.

So she's waiting for cocktail waitresses 12-25 to be named. A pretty good strategy, as her stands to improve as the list of Tiger Woods mistresses grows.

Rumors are swirling in their Windermere, Fla., community that Elin may already have kicked Tiger's a$$ out and/or begun the process of moving out.

"He's been coming by in the early evenings only for their counseling and therapy," one resident says, but if this report is to be believed, it's of little use.

It's also being reported that Elin Woods and their kids - Sam, 2, and Charlie, 10 months - won't be spending the holiday with Tiger, but far, far away.

The N.Y. Post said she wants to go somewhere "Tiger-free ," while the N.Y. Daily News said she wants to "spend the holidays with her family in Sweden."

Is Elin Woods making the right call? Or should she stick it out for the kids, forgiveness (and her own bank account)? Tell us: Elin should ...

Chris Henry has passed away as a result of the grave injuries he sustained after falling out of the back of a moving pickup truck Wednesday.

He was in critical condition last night, but Charlotte-Mecklenbruck, N.C., police have confirmed that Chris Henry is dead as of 6:36 a.m. EST.

The NFL star was just 26.

Police believe the wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals jumped into the back of the truck in an attempt to stop his fiancee, Loleini Tonga, from leaving a "domestic situation" at her parents' home in North Carolina.

At some point, Henry fell out of the truck, presumably at a high speed if he did not survive. He was rushed to a hospital but did not make it.

Authorities are still investigating the accident.

R.I.P. Chris Henry (1983-2009).

Earlier yesterday, everything seemed right in Henry's world. Loleini Tonga had updated her MySpace page, writing about how she just "put deposIt down 4 weDDing piCs" and "Paid 4 ouR riNgs" in advance of her upcoming wedding to Chris.

The accident ensued mere hours later. More details as the story develops ...

Rielle Hunter wants John Edwards to pay a lot of money to help support the child the two-time presidential candidate has never admitted he fathered.

How long before he's finally forced to come clean?

The National Enquirer makes up a lot of crap, but not regarding Edwards. They exposed the scandal in 2008, and appear to have proof this time too.

New documents prove beyond any doubt that John Edwards knocked up Rielle Hunter, with whom he had an affair as wife Elizabeth battled cancer.

Rielle is seeking more than $17,000 per month from the former U.S. Senator, who was forced into admitting the affair in the summer of last year.

Rielle Hunter and Frances Quinn are always on John's mind.

He still to this day hasn't admitted getting her pregnant, but his former aide and "fixer," Andrew Young, rolled over on him and all but confirmed it.

Court files from earlier this year (the case has still not been resolved) are pretty much the nail in the coffin, as Edwards is named in the litigation.

Child support documents show John has a house for Rielle and their daughter, Francis Quinn, but is battling over monthly child support payments.

Her attorney also sent her a “Family Part Case Information Statement,” which spells out Rielle Hunter is the plaintiff and Edwards the defendant.

Follow the jump to see said court document ...

Is another of the many Tiger Woods mistresses ready to cash in?

While some of Woods' lovers have wasted no time talking to any media outlet who will have them, Tiger's original mistress (that we learned of), Rachel Uchitel, reportedly snagged a seven-figure deal to keep quiet about their affair.

According to Radar Online, Theresa Rogers may go that route.

Uchitel and Rogers share L.A. attorney Gloria Allred, who negotiated Uchitel's deal, and who would not be involved if there weren't some real dirt.

Rogers is rumored to have been involved with Tiger Woods for years, before and after he was married, and to have taught him everything in bed.

She also tried, albeit in vain, to have a Tiger Woods love child.

The classy shirt of Theresa Rogers, seen here with her daughter, reads "one boyfriend is never enough." For Tiger Woods, 10-12 mistresses apparently wasn't enough.

Theresa Rogers, who at 47 or 49 (depending on what you read), was married at the time to fourth husband and clothing designer Wayne Rogers.

She told close friends that she hoped to have a baby with the golf champion and was actively trying to get pregnant without telling Tiger Woods.

Her hubby was cool with it because he couldn't get her pregnant.

Rogers did conceive and confided that she believed Woods was the father. However, she was also having a simultaneous affair with Serbian basketball player.

According to sources, the baby girl (pictured above), born between late 2003-early 2004, was never given a DNA test but looks to be Caucasian.

If these details of Theresa Rogers' relationship with Tiger Woods are even partially true, you can see why he'd want to keep her quiet.

There are reports that Tiger has a private investigator working feverishly on the case, digging into the background of Rogers and other women.

In yet another insane Facebook rant, Courtney Love derided her estranged, teenage daughter Frances Bean Cobain with a cheap shot at Jamie Lynn Spears.

Yes, we're serious.

A Jamie Lynn Spears Image

After slamming her 17-year-old daughter as "deceptive" earlier this week, Love ranted late Wednesday afternoon that she's not upset with Frances Bean.

"id just prefer she not become Jaimie [sic] L Spears," Love wrote, referring to Britney Spears' little sister, who had a daughter, Maddie Briann, at age 17.

So uncalled for. So nonsensical. So hilarious.

Love continues her advice to Frances: "she should be a writer or an a... artist wich i support 100% but this is a circus it pains me cos i know she hates it."

We're loving it, at least.

In case you missed it, Frances Bean Cobain is now under temporary guardianship of her aunt and paternal grandmother, Kurt Cobain's mom and sister.

The Cobains won't say why Courtney Love lost custody, but the rocker has been Facebooking like a madwoman ever since, lambasting her only child.

This isn't the first time the Spears clan has been involved, either.

For some reason, Love recently took aim at Britney and her dad Jamie Spears, writing that "britneys dad molested her" in a November 25 Facebook post.

We don't get it either.

What we do know is Facebook is Love's only mode of reaching out to Frances after a judge issued a restraining order against her, barring any contact.

"There's not a whole lot i can do about it," Love wrote, referring to Cobain's relatives, who she implied are responsible for Kurt's death in a prior post:

"This is a hand grenade thrown into our lives and it's not Frances!"

She later added: "im despairing and so sad, so sad, but i just want to her be happy, get her house and get her school and thats all ive ever wanted."

Jersey Shore's Snooki, a.k.a. Nicole Polizzi, may be living the dream as a newly-minted MTV reality star, but she's still gone through some hard knocks lately.

We're not talking about getting punched in the face by a dude either.

Snooki says she just got fired from her job after she told her boss she needed some time off to head to the West Coast at the end of last week for PR.

"I was a receptionist at a corporation," Snooki says. "I was getting decent money, like $13 an hour. I got fired when I asked for time off to go to L.A."

But it was for the best: "She knew I'd be crazy," she said of her boss.

Also crazy? The amount of phone calls she's gotten since Jersey Shore premiered: "A lot of people are calling my house. I've gotten so many texts."

The Jersey Shore madness returns at 10 p.m. tonight.

Snooki, along with co-stars The Situation, Pauly D and JWoww, said they met The Hills star Kristin Cavallari while nightclubbing over the weekend.

"She told us not to read stuff online," The Situation said. "I don't do that. Not that I care what people think, but you know people aren't gonna like you."

Come on, Mike. We love you, dog!

As Snooki puts it, "You're going to have haters and you're going to have lovers." Speaking of lovers, JWoww tells us she is still dating the same guy.

The one she was with when she first went on the show. In fact, they recently moved in together. Guess things didn't work out with Ronnie. Sad.

Jon Gosselin has been acting like a swingin' single for months, partying like it's 1999 (before he wed Kate, actually) and chasing skirts all over the globe.

He's been married the whole time. Tiger Woods would be proud.

Looking Good Kate

Still, you knew things weren't gonna be reconciled with estranged with Kate Gosselin, and their divorce, which has been a long time 'comin, is imminent.

An arbitrator dealing with the reality stars has rendered a decision regarding how the feuding spouses should divide all their money and other property.

Those were the (contractually obligated photo shoot) days.

This recommendation (the details of which will stay confidential) has been forwarded to the judge presiding over the divorce. He should approve it.

Thus, a final divorce decree is now "imminent." The soon-to-be-ex spouses have both consented, and have asked the judge to sign the divorce papers.

Time to move on to the next item on the ol' to-do list.

It'll be nice for Jon to put this behind him. Dude has a lot of other legal issues going on. He was ordered by a judge to stop making media appearances.

In addition to violating various mediocre women over the last couple of months, TLC says Jon Gosselin had been violating a contract with the network.
