Jenny Sanford, the estranged wife of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, announced she is filing for divorce following his now-infamous affair this summer.

Mark Sanford admitted an extramarital affair with Maria Belen Chapur, an Argentinian woman, after flying down to see her in secret (he thought) in June.

In August, Jenny Sanford moved out, but said she still hoped to reconcile with her husband, with whom she has four sons. But those efforts were in vain.

"As so many of us know, the dissolution of any marriage is a sad and painful process. It is also a very personal and private one," she said in a statement.

"Because Mark and I are public figures, we have had less privacy with which to deal with our difficulties than other couples. I am now filing for divorce."

Jenny Sanford couldn't get past her husband's cheating and lying.

"This came after many unsuccessful efforts at reconciliation, yet I am still dedicated to keeping the process that lies ahead peaceful for our family.”

Once considered a potential GOP presidential contender for 2012, Mark Sanford refused to comment on Jenny's divorce filing earlier this morning.

Mark disappeared for several days in June, saying he was hiking on the Appalachian Trail. It turned out he flew to Argentina to be with his lover.

His tearful confession when the tryst with Maria Belen Chapur became known shattered his political career and nearly led to his impeachment.

If they couldn't make it work with after one affair, that doesn't bode well for Tiger Woods saving his marriage after racking up a list of mistresses.

With hits like The Vampire Diaries, Grey's Anatomy and FlashForward airing repeats until the new year, last night's TV offerings were somewhat limited.

But there were plenty of laughs to be had, thanks to holiday-themed episodes from NBC's roster of comedies and MTV's new, unintentionally funny hit.

Our friends at TV Fanatic have compiled some reviews of last night's viewing. Follow the links for full rundowns (and LOL-worthy quotes) from each:

  • Okay, we lied. Fringe isn't a comedy. But it was solid last night, thanks to Thomas Newton's resurrection and Walter Bishop's readmission.
  • Suffice it to say, everyone at Greendale celebrates religion in his or her own way, and suffice it to say, Community was hilariously un-PC.
  • A Christmas scandal rocked Parks and Recreation. Well, at least as much as any political sex scandal can possibly rock Pawnee, Indiana.
  • Julianne Moore guest-starred, the cast feuded, Liz acted like a bigger nerd than usual, and Tracy and Ken talked religion on 30 Rock.
  • Holiday episodes often bring out The Office quotes to remember, and last night was no exception. In other news, the branch is saved!
  • If you haven't seen the greatness that is Jersey Shore on MTV, you owe it to yourself to watch ... and laugh at them, not with them.

The hottest, craziest, tannest guidos housemates of the New Jersey shore.

The list of mistresses linked to Tiger Woods just expanded once again. Although do you even qualify as a mistress if you're getting paid for it like Loredana Jolie?

Regardless, Tiger's list of women continues to grow amid claims from a Hollywood madam that he shelled out thousands of dollars for threesomes with hookers.

One of his favorites was Loredana Jolie, according to her pimp, Michelle Braun, who says she set the world's #1 golfer up with the blond Playboy model from Sicily.

"She's a stunning girl," Braun said. "He went out with her 4-5 times. She took part in group sex. They met up in 2006 or 2007. I'd say he paid $15,000 for her."

In addition to Loredana Jolie, Woods "had a pretty big appetite for women" in general, Braun told the New York Daily News. "He was rarely with just one girl."

"He usually wanted more. He liked three-ways."

Tiger Woods supposedly had threesomes with Loredana Jolie and others.

Braun, whose escort service recently closed due to legal troubles, claims that two of Woods' other playmates were porn star Holly Sampson and Jamie Jungers.

Both women were previously identified as Tiger Woods mistresses within the last week, but their call girl backgrounds only came to light yesterday evening.

Woods would drop $30,000-40,000 on a weekend for his liaisons, Braun said, and he would met up with women in cities where he was playing tournaments.

"He would request the college-cutie, girl-next-door look," she said. "He could go for days. He'd pay a flat rate for an evening, but that would usually be extended."

"The girls would talk about his stamina."

Guess all those marathon rounds of golf in the heat were good for something. His endurance truly is something of a marvel in terms of gossip fodder as well.

Jamie Jungers, one of Tiger Woods' alleged mistresses, is officially off the "alleged" list after lamenting on the Today Show that the golfer broke her heart.

But not until after he hit that after a long night of boozing and partying. At first, Jamie Jungers says she was excited to have a one-night stand with Tiger.

A one-night stand that quickly became so much more.

She told Meredith Vieira she met Woods at a Las Vegas club in 2005 when the golfer "had a VIP host call me over to his table and requested to meet me."

That quickly led to "hanging out and drinking," which led to time spent together at "the mansion at the MGM," where they "continued drinking a lot more."

"It kind of became clear to me that Tiger was interested," she said. "The more we drank, the more - I guess - flirtatious we got. I had a crush on him."

The flirtation led to sex, which Jungers said she "absolutely" figured would be a one night stand. But the trashy model then "dated" Woods for two years.

Tiger Woods can't believe what he's seeing ... his mistresses kissing and telling on national TV. Jamie Jungers is the latest to cash in on an affair with the golf legend.

"It became more and more of an actual relationship," Jungers said, adding that eventually, she "got nothing out of this relationship but a broken heart."

Letting a married man with 12 other mistresses tap that is a pretty good way to ensure that outcome, but whatever. You live and you learn, right Jamie?

As for rumors that she received cash from Woods to pay for liposuction, Jungers said during 18-month affair with Woods, she asked for help only once.

Woods nixed that. "He said, 'I can't,'" Jungers said. "I said, 'I don't understand.' I thought he was joking. I was already embarrassed to ask about it."

"That's when I said, 'That shows how little I mean to you. I can't do this. I'm already in a rough position. I have more drama and that's what I don't need.'"

As for whispers she is or used to be a prostitute and that Woods used her service, Jungers said: "I've never been an escort and never will be an escort."

Mmm. Sure. There are madams and court documents that say otherwise, but no matter. Follow the jump for a clip of Jamie Jungers' interview on Today:

It's a Christmas miracle arriving two weeks early: Jon Gosselin has been temporarily barred from making public appearances by a Maryland court.

After TLC tore into him yesterday in the network's breach of contract lawsuit against the reality TV dad, a judge sided with TLC, at least for now.

The court ruled that the network's case against Jon was strong enough to put a preliminary injunction in place, forcing him to abide by TLC's rules.

That means no more interviews or appearances without TLC's permission. We don't suspect they'll be bending over backwards to grant it, either.

Everybody around the nation and world, throw your hands up and holla!


TLC has succeeded in making Jon Gosselin STFU. Legally!

TLC executive Edward Sabin testified against Jon on Thursday, saying the douchebag's recent actions - like hosting a pool party in Vegas, taking his girlfriend to France and talking to celeb gossip media outside of his home - were "embarrassing."

A rep for TLC said today that "The Court has validated our view that Mr. Gosselin has a valid, binding contract and that he has breached it repeatedly... we look forward to the next phase of the litigation, which is to pursue our claim for damages."

In summation, it looks like Jon's f--ked. We're sure you're devastated.

Dwight Howard's efforts to hush Royce Lyndsay Reed haven't succeeded so far.

The NBA star says his baby mama is bashing him all over the Internet, and has filed a lawsuit against her (his second this month) to cyber-silence her.

Royce, the mother of his 2-year-old son, has been making some defamatory comments on gossip site, according to Dwight Howard.

Dwight claims Reed posted comments - "directly or indirectly" under an Internet alias - in violation of an injunction he just recently filed against her.

The Orlando Magic center sought to prevent Reed from uttering his name at all or using her baby mama status to be filmed on Basketball Wives.

Dwight Howard wants Royce Reed to zip it ... or else!

A few of Royce's supposed anti-Dwight comments he's referring to:

  • "[Dwight Howard] hasn't seen his son in two months."
  • "Why file an injunction if you have nothing to hide?"
  • "But the bottom line is Dwight is a douchebag."

According to Reed's lawyer, Dwight's baby mama is "flabbergasted" by the latest lawsuit, claiming she has nothing to do with the comments online.

Dwight Howard is seeking $9,205,000 in damages.

As Tiger Woods' first and foremost mistress, Rachel Uchitel is bound to be talked about in an unflattering context. And to a point, she understands that.

But she's had it with The View panel talkin' trash and referring to her as a ho. We can see her point, especially since Tiger was banging actual whores.

Pregnant Rachel Uchitel

After Whoopi Goldberg started talking about Tiger Woods' "alleged" affairs yesterday and mentioned Rachel, Joy Behar chimed in with a play on words:

"Uchitel she's a hooker!"

An amused Sherri Shepherd responded: "Rachel, you walked into that one, girl!" She sort of did, by virtue of her last name. And her affair with Tiger.

Innocent enough for daytime talk show fodder, you'd think. But Gloria Allred, Uchitel's attorney, fired off an angry statement about it Thursday night:

Stop calling Rachel Uchitel a hooker! There was no money exchanged!

"This statement about Ms. Uchitel, which has been viewed and now read all around the world, is false and defamatory and highly offensive to Rachel."

"This statement was very hurtful to Rachel because it is not true. Even if the host said it in a joking way Rachel is not amused, because she values her reputation and her reputation has been damaged by this statement as it is completely false."

Yes. It was that joke by Joy Behar that damaged the "reputation" of Rachel Uchitel. Ladies of The View, you should be ashamed. She has feelings, too!

Allred says that they are sending a letter to ABC demanding that The View issue a retraction: "We hope that they will do the right thing," she said.

We imagine she's serious, too ... at least as much as she is about getting tested for various diseases Tiger may be spreading around like wildfire.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of TLC's now-inaccurately-named 18 Kids and Counting, gave birth to baby #19 last night after being rushed to the emergency room.

A rep from TLC confirmed today that "Michelle Duggar, who has been in the hospital recovering from a gallstone, was taken to the OR for an emergency c-section."

No. 19 wasn't due until Spring, but at 6:27 p.m. yesterday, Michelle and Jim Bob welcomed new daughter Josie Brooklyn ... who weighed in at just 1 lb., 6 oz.

Not only is Josie the youngest of the Arkansas family's children, but she's officially younger than her own niece, Mackynzie, the first Grandduggar born in October!

The Duggars

MAKE THAT 19: The Duggar family just got bigger!

Sources say Michelle is resting comfortably and that the baby is "stable" in the neonatal intensive care unit at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.

"The most important thing is for Mom and baby Josie to rest," TLC's rep said. "The family is grateful for all the prayers and well wishes during their recovery."

Congratulations to the new parents and Josie's 18 siblings! Here's wishing Michelle and Josie a full, speedy recovery after a joyous but traumatic experience.

Jillian Harris chose Ed Swiderski on the season finale of The Bachelorette this summer, shunning fan favorites Reid Rosenthal and Kiptyn Locke and sparking much debate over whether she made the right choice, given Ed's alleged cheating.

They've weathered the storm, however, and will be making an appearance on the January 4 season premiere of The Bachelor to "advise" new star Jake Pavelka.

Jake, who was rejected by Jillian Harris last season, will get her take on who to boot among first batch of women. Jillian and Ed also have an "announcement."

"Just as the women think it's time for The Bachelor star to hand out the coveted first impression rose, Chris announces a twist," an ABC press release teases.

"The ladies not only must impress Jake, but also last season's happy couple: Jillian and Ed. The women cheer as the former Bachelorette and her fiancé join Jake to help him with his tough decision, hoping that he will find a love like theirs."

Jake Pavelka will get a little help from his friends.

Could the announcement by Jillian and Ed possibly be that they've set a wedding date? Or that they're helping kill time on what should by no means be a two-hour season premiere? Probably both! And who are we kidding, we can't wait.

Will Jake Pavelka be a good Bachelor?

Saying Jersey Shore is a bad show is an understatement, and kind of missing the point. MTV is in on the joke this time, and turning the trash quotient up to 11.

The Hollywood Gossip staff has reviewed last night's episode in the style of our The City and The Hills reviews, awarding and deducting points as we deem fit.

Leave a comment with your own pluses and minuses, and your feedback in general. If our Jersey Shore review "gels" with you, we'll make it a regular thing...

Last week's episode was "The Tanned Triangle." Like the Bermuda Triangle, only less mysterious, and more exposed to the sun. Tanning bed style. Plus 2.

Jenni, like, doesn't even remember that she hooked up with Pauly. Did she forget running out da club with his sweaty tank top, too? Minus 3, you lush!

Angelina's friends are Alana and Elena. We're not sure if all "guidettes" must elect names ending in "na" to gain acceptance, but we'll buy it if so. Plus 2.

Gelled but contemplative, Pauly says she didn't want to come off like a "trash bag." Wrong show for that, sister. Minus only 1, because it's all relative.

We're only gonna say it once, because it applies every second: These guidos have enough oil in their hair to join OPEC! Sorry. Plus 2 for us going there.

The Situation

HERE'S THE SITUATION: No, really. That's his name now.

Mike, a.k.a. The Situation, can't get over Sammi, a.k.a. Sweetheart, trading him for younger, more ripped guido Ronnie. It's everyone's worst fear. Plus 3.

When Nicole, a.k.a. Snooki, comes off as the smartest, reserved and polite, our society may be done for. Or at least New Jersey may be over as a state. Minus 5.

Trying (in vain) to navigate BF drama amid the Pauly hookup, Jenni says she's been "acting like a nun" and needs to party! So virtuous, indeed. Plus 11.

Angelina's boyfriend Mike makes an appearance. The distance thing is hurting their relationship. The fact that he's married can't help either. Minus 17.

Angelina decides to call in sick from work ... only she doesn't call, she walks in late to tell them ... she's not coming in. LOL. Minus 5, because these people are obviously buffoons, but you'd think they'd have heard of an invention called the phone.

Plus 12 for the house's collective reaction to Angie leaving. That reaction being no reaction. Not even getting up off the furniture. It's an emotional crew.

Sammi + Ronnie = Real. His word, not ours. Plus 6.

Jealous, Mike unveils "The Situation." Sammi doesn't flinch. Minus 3, but Plus 9 later when Ronnie grinds with some chick, Sammi gives her number to a strange guy in retaliation, Jenni sees this and rats her out, and Ronnie leaves in a huff.

TOTAL: +13! While advertisers and locals may not be fans, you can see why Jersey Shore has already attracted a so-bad-it's-good following. Thoughts?
