We don't normally post about sports or sports figures at THG.

But there are exceptions, like when Tom Brady goes shirtless, Shawne Merriman possibly beats up Tila Tequila or Boise State and Oregon get into an epic melee.

Or last night's outburst by Serena Williams in the U.S. Open tennis semifinals, which will rank among some of the classic YouTube moments in sports history.

After being called for a foot fault - which is non-reviewable - in her match with Kim Clijsters, Serena absolutely lost her $h!t at the judge that made the call.

Her quote: "I'm gonna shove this ball down your f*%king throat." Really. And Williams' rant kept going long after that, reportedly with much more vulgarity.

Serena Williams' outburst was equally notable for its impact on the match.

Amazingly, Serena was already penalized for smashing a racket earlier, which resulted in a warning. Her second outburst (at the judge) thus cost her a point.

Even more amazingly, she happened to be down match point at the time, so that point she was penalized ended the match, giving Clijsters a 6-4, 7-5 win!

And you think you've seen it all. Check out the video below of Serena's U.S. open outburst at the judge who called the most infamous foot fault in history:

Not sure if this is true, MTV is pulling a fast one or somewhere in between, but The Hills star Audrina Patridge has reportedly pulled out of her presenting duties at this evening's MTV Video Music Awards in New York City.

The reason? She was to be presenting with Kristin Cavallari.

And she wasn't about to take part with her new fake rival.

"Audrina hates Kristin, and MTV sprung this on her at the last minute so she decided to cancel," a source dished to celeb gossip mag In Touch Weekly.

"She doesn't even want to be in the same room with Kristin."

  • 'Drina Pic
  • A K-Cavs Pic

The primary reason for the bad blood is drama - fake or real - caused by Kristin's reported dalliances with Audzo's dirtbag ex-boyfriend, Justin-Bobby.

According to reports, the stylist and hair and makeup team working with Audrina Patridge were even warned not to book a job with another Hills star.

Kristin is said to be "more than pleased" by Audrina's last-minute cancellation. Either there's a major cat fight brewing, or this is great scripted BS PR.

Says a friend of Cavallari's, who probably produces The Hills: "Kristin is happy. They never got along and Kristin is the star of The Hills, not Audrina."

Fightin' words! Whose side are you on?

It's been rumored and pretty much excepted as fact that Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz are expecting a child together. But was this just wishful thinking among fan of celebrity babies longing for the most beautiful one in history?

Yes, says the actress, who denies Javier got Penelope Cruz pregnant.

The 35-year-old has been dating Bardem for months and has been rumored to be carrying the most genetically perfect celebrity spawn for weeks.

But at Thursday's Toronto Film Festival premiere of her latest film, Broken Embraces, she finally set the record straight ... or at least lied about it.

Is Penelope Cruz not pregnant after all?

"I start getting some presents from friends saying, 'Congratulations, you're pregnant.' And I tell them, 'no, I'm not, so return the presents,'" she said.

Of celebrity gossip attention paid to her, she said, "It's amazing."

She should try being Robert Pattinson. Guy gets engaged like every week.

Penelope is either telling the truth or really old-fashioned and doesn't give a crap about the kid: She was seen smoking cigarettes with pal Salma Hayek Wednesday at Hollywood's Chateau Marmont. Either way, we're a little disappointed.

At least Tom Brady finally admitted he got Gisele Bundchen pregnant. That super-attractive future quarterback or model has officially been conceived.

Tom Brady has finally confirmed the good news:

He has seen Gisele Bundchen nude at least once!

In an interview with ESPN's Chris Berman airing Sunday, the 32-year-old New England Patriots quarterback reveals that the couple are expecting.

They married earlier this year after several years of dating. Then he got Gisele Bundchen pregnant almost immediately and she's due in December.

While Brady said he would happily attend Lamaze classes with Bundchen, he will do so with the following caveat: "I told her no Sundays," he joked.

"It couldn't be harder than training camp, so I'll be prepared."

Pregnant Gisele

Gisele tries to hide her Tom Brady baby bump. Pretty successfully, too!

Noting that "the women are the ones who have to do the work," he adds, "We just have to be there to support them and so it'll be nice to do that."

Quite a grounded fellow for a star with three Super Bowl titles who is married to one of the planet's wealthiest and most beautiful models, isn't he?

Their child will be the first for Gisele and the second for Brady, who is dad to 2-year-old John Edward Thomas with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan.

While it was pretty much confirmed that Gisele was knocked up already, this is the first comment straight from either of the lucky, beautiful parties.

Congratulations to the expecting couple! Tom's Patriots are preparing to clobber the Bills tomorrow night, while Gisele is preparing to ... um, be hot?

In an emotional interview with Oprah Winfrey, Erin Andrews described the leaked hotel video of her nude as a nightmare she felt would end her professionally.

Naked tapes aren't really career killers nowadays - on the contrary, right, Kim Kardashian? Then again, the stars of such tapes often don't have careers.

Erin does. So when creepy footage of Erin Andrews nude in a hotel - shot without her knowledge - leaked online, she called her parents and screamed.

"I'm done, my career is over!" she wailed uncontrollably.

She says she's "paranoid" and constantly feels like she's being filmed since the peeping Tom - who has still not been caught - exploited her in the tape.

Erin also told the Big O that her visit to Chicago, where the popular show is taped, marked the first time since the incident she'd been alone in a hotel.

The San Diego District Attorney will not prosecute NFL star Shawne Merriman after Tila Tequila said he choked her and trapped her in his mansion last week.

"After a thorough review of the investigation into the incident at the home of Shawne Merriman, we have determined there is insufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that any crime was committed," the D.A.'s office said.

"The case is now closed."

San Diego Chargers General Manager A.J. Smith said of his star player: "It's good news for Shawne. We're happy things worked out for him on the legal front."

Tila called 911 after allegedly being choked and restrained by the linebacker at his home in Poway, Calif., last Sunday, and had Merriman arrested for assault.

Police said Tequila, who was hospitalized, appeared to have been drinking heavily. Merriman said he was trying to restrain her from leaving and driving drunk.

Other witnesses corroborated Merriman's account, noting that Tila was both hammered and jealous of other girls Shawne wanted her to have a foursome with.

Tila T. Pic

Legally in the clear after investigators apparently believed his version of events over Tila Tequila's, San Diego Chargers star Shawne Merriman is all kinds of fired up.

Whatever the reason, no charges were filed against Merriman. But Tila's rep is not letting the issue die (surprised?) lashing out at the D.A. via this statement:

"Tila Tequila is the victim of a violent crime. The San Diego D.A.'s decision not to press charges against Shawne Merriman for the battering of Tila Tequila demonstrates an unconscionable negligence in the discharging of their public duties."

"We strongly feel that justice has not been served in this matter."

"Obviously, The San Diego Charger's [sic] NFL franchise brings millions of dollars in revenue to the city of San Diego, and it appears clear that other interests are being served by the DA's office than the upholding of the law."

"A young woman was violently beaten and choked, and the physical evidence is both overwhelming and disturbing. Tila's account of these events has remained consistent from the beginning, while Merriman's story has changed repeatedly."

"Just because the DA made this reckless decision doesn't mean that justice will not be served. No one is above the law. Tila Tequila will immediately begin pursuing civil charges against Shawne Merriman and she will have her day in court."

Whose side are you on?!

By day, supermodel-turned-TV-magnate Tyra Banks hosts a talk show known for its message of empowerment to women. She is every woman's best friend.

Tyra Banks has your back! She has gained a big following over the years by defending females against the unfair judgment of society. She's done this by ...

  • Dressing up in a fat suit to gauge reactions among strangers
  • Wearing the same swimsuit on her show that she wore when celebrity gossip tabloids posted fat pictures of her, and telling critics to kiss her fat a$$
  • Most recently, abandoning her patented wigs, weaves and extensions in favor of her real hair, a message to women that beauty comes from within

But is Tyra Banks only out to boost her own celebrity?

Is her talk show a blatant contradiction of the values (or lack thereof) espoused on America's Next Top Model, which she produces and stars on for the CW?

The long-running reality show features contestants being judged by how they dress and look. Which is what modeling is all about ... but is the kind of thing that Banks, a supermodel herself, often denounces as shallow on The Tyra Show.

Clearly, Tyra Banks is a walking, talking contradiction. But does she see it that way, and perhaps more significantly, do any viewers of either show care?

Follow the jump for her two-part interview on Nightline ...

Welcome, celebrity gossip readers across this great nation and world, to The Hollywood Gossip's Week in Review, in which we take a look back at what made this maybe the most exciting week of celeb news since ... last week.

Some of the top stories of the past seven days:

  • For Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson is risking it all.
  • Just hope he doesn't take Jen Aniston's love advice.
  • Jon Gosselin gave an explosive interview on ABC's Primetime. In summation, he despises Kate and says Hailey Glassman is his soul mate.
  • Instead of Meredith Grey's Anatomy, Ellen Pompeo's husband Chris Iver, may be inspecting that of Rachel Artz. We mean sleeping with her.
  • Hugh Hefner is divorcing Kimberley Conrad Hefner. Yes. Hugh is married, and has been since '89! Also, Hef is apparently really, really rich.
  • Joe Wilson, a Republican Congressman from South Carolina, made headlines with his "You lie!" outburst during President Obama's speech.
A Choice of the People

No word if Joe Wilson is also irate about Ellen joining American Idol.

  • American Idol tapped Ellen DeGeneres as a full time judge. Can't say we saw that coming, but at least Paula Abdul wished her good luck.
  • Are Evan Rachel Wood and Alexander Skarsgard more than co-stars?
  • Tila Tequila alleges assault at the hands of beau Shawne Merriman.
  • Khloe Kardashian is dating Lamar Odom! Kourtney's still pregnant.
  • Whitney Port broke up with Freddie Fackelmayer. They were dating.
  • We called Miley Cyrus a Twittering twit for writing that she really missed her pappy. We sort of misinterpreted the singer's comment.
  • Speaking of twits, Lindsay Lohan may take the cake, with incoherent online rants to Sam, followed by her voicemail being hacked.
