Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin recently paid a visit to the Big Apple, and as he has been known to do on The Late Show, David Letterman had some fun at her expense.

The 2008 GOP Vice Presidential nominee and her husband were hardly amused.

Tuesday night, Letterman joked in his monologue that when Sarah visited Yankee Stadium, she sat in "far, far right field" with Rudy Giuliani. Ba-dum-ching.

"They had a wonderful time," the talk show host continued. "The toughest part of her visit was keeping Eliot Spitzer away from her daughter." Ooooooh.

That, of course, is a reference to the disgraced former N.Y. Governor who was caught sleeping with hooker Ashley Dupre and forced to resign his office.

“One awkward moment for Sarah Palin at the game," Letterman later said, "during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez.”

While clearly digs at A-Rod and Spitzer and not the Palins, Alaska's first couple took to - what else - Facebook to post the following message in response:

"Any 'jokes' about raping my 14-year-old daughter are despicable. Alaskans know it and I believe the rest of the world knows it, too," Todd Palin wrote.

Meanwhile, from Sarah Palin:

"Concerning Letterman's comments about my young daughter (and I doubt he'd ever dare make such comments about anyone else's daughter): 'Laughter incited by sexually-perverted comments made by a 62-year-old male celebrity aimed at a 14-year-old girl is not only disgusting, but it reminds us some Hollywood/NY entertainers have a long way to go in understanding what the rest of America understands – that acceptance of inappropriate sexual comments about an underage girl, who could be anyone's daughter, contributes to the atrociously high rate of sexual exploitation of minors by older men who use and abuse others.'"

While in somewhat poor taste, does anyone think Dave is really advocating "perverted" acts against 14-year-old Willow... or Track, or Field, or whichever one it is?

And is it not a comedy show, where stars are lampooned?

Not to mention the fact that Bristol Palin, the couple's oldest daughter, actually was knocked up in early 2008, when she was 17. But that's neither here nor there.

One could even argue that the only exploitation of the Palins' daughter is courtesy of the Palins themselves, who are making a giant deal out of a relatively harmless joke to play the victim and get attention. Would you put it past them?

Either that, or they're complete nut jobs. Perhaps a little of both.

Chris Brown has been criticized by many (The Hollywood Gossip included) for what he allegedly did to Rihanna, and how he has conducted himself since.

But to anyone threatening his life ... get one of your own. Seriously, ridiculing him on gossip blogs is fun, you should try it. No need to get all violent.

A reliable source tells the Chicago Sun-Times that Brown has a whole group of folks protecting him these days because the music star has become the target of death threats the authorities believe are actually legitimate.

In recent months, Brown, who was partying with Khloe Kardashian at a Miami klub last night, is rarely seen without a minimum of three very visible bodyguards - of the enormous variety - whenever he’s gone outside his house.

On top of that, there reportedly are always three or four others around the singer who are "incognito, said a longtime LAPD insider - stressing that at least one or two have been women, "but who are easily as tough as any man."

Death threats against Chris Brown have been coming from a group (or just one person claiming to be a group) calling itself the Women’s Protection Action League.

The alleged threats are "definitely tied" to the charges the entertainer beat the living hell out of Rhianna earlier this year. Brown is said to be "totally paranoid" about the threats on his life and has become obsessed with his security.

There have been some indications the potential assassin could be disguised as a paparazzi — yet another reason for Brown to despise celebrity gossip personnel.

Paranoid he may be, but that hasn't stopped his PR blitz.

Dude is far from under the radar these days. Here are more Chris Brown pics from last night's NBA Finals, where he and Omarion watched Orlando beat L.A.:

Let it be known that The Hollywood Gossip gives credit were it is due. Kudos to Photo magazine for an entirely new take on what is always a classic subject:

Gisele Bundchen nude.

In a series of artistic, yet sexy pictures, the publication covers the model in body paint, vines, what appears to be a water dress and all sorts of good stuff.

Here's the Brazilian stunner on the magazine's cover ...

Gisele in Photo

Man, we wish we were Tom Brady right now. After all ... the guy plays pro football for a living and has won three Super Bowls - how awesome would that be?!

If we could read the words on the magazine cover, we'd tell you what it's about. Alas, all we can do is offer our best guess ... oh who cares, it's not like it matters.

No, in all seriousness, there appears to be an environmental theme here. And if so, having Gisele get naked for the cover is a great way to promote the cause.

To those who haven't seen much of Eva Longoria Parker lately, well, good news.

In fact, we have got a little Desperate Housewives spoiler for you right here:

She's still very attractive.

As this photo from GQ Mexico shows, Eva may have a new last name (after she married NBA star Tony Parker), but she's got the same amazing looks:

Eva Longoria: No Pants!

Eva Longoria sees no use for pants. It's a position we support.

The star is a regular in our celebrity fashion face-offs, and while she sometimes comes up short in that department, this is not one of those times.

We must all applaud GQ for bringing this to our attention. Click to enlarge more Eva Longoria pictures from this terrific magazine photo shoot ...

Most celebrities loathe and resent the fact that they have to give their agents a nice piece of their assets ... but apparently not Britney Spears.

She's dating him. Jason Trawick. No, really, it's legit.

Big Wave to Fans

Trawick, an agent with William Morris, who has been seen with Brit in L.A. and in the Bahamas in the last month, is officially Spears' boyfriend.

People reported this development last night and now, multiple sources tell TMZ that it's the case. They are really dating. It's 100 percent true.

Here's a photo of the confirmed lovers from May:

Jason and Britney enjoy some fun in the Bahamanian sun last month. The agent accompanied Spears and her family on vacation to the Caribbean paradise.

According to reports, Jason Trawick, who Spears has "always had a crush on," has been visiting Britney on tour - most recently in London last weekend.

Jason has also said that when Britney Spears' tour is over he's planning on whisking his sweetie away on a vacation to a "private location." Hot stuff!

Wonder how papa Jamie Spears feels about it. Oh, right, Trawick probably had to clear every detail with him first. And Jamie will be going with them.

Just kidding about the last part. Sort of. Not really.

Whoever ghosted Lauren Conrad's first novel L.A. Candy, isn't half bad!

At least that's the conclusion of the New York Daily News, which says LC's literary debut "leaves fans something to hold onto beyond memories."

Conrad, seemingly ably assisted by a collaborator, tells the story of Jane Roberts, a young beauty most notable for her sweet nature and innocence.

Sound familiar?

She moves to L.A. with her BFF from kindergarten, gorgeous, smart–mouthed Scarlett. Soon enough, they meet a producer making a new reality show.

The two are perfect for "L.A. Candy"!

'CANDY' GIRL: LC's first novel is ripe with allusions to The Hills.

Note that while Lauren Conrad is an aspiring celebrity fashion designer, Jane's ambition is to be an events planner. In fiction, creativity is everything.

The first night they're miked up and sent into a club, camera crew in tow, they run into a blond "wearing more makeup and hair products than clothing."

Turns out she's wearing a microphone too.

Madison, the wily one, introduces her friend, Gaby, who's so stupid she shouldn't be crossing streets without adult supervision. OMG, it's, like, so on.

According to recent reports, baseball slugger Alex Rodriguez - who went 0-for-4 with a strikeout last night at Fenway Park - has been smashing home runs off the field with Kate Hudson more often than on it with the New York Yankees.

Not everyone is thrilled with this new, sexy couple however. Kate's mother, Goldie Hawn, has reportedly cautioned Kate about the new relationship.

Kate was first linked to the baseball star last month and both are said to be “somewhat serious” about the relationship - with A-Rod introducing the actress to his pals (which he apparently has) and Kate attending a bunch of his recent games.

But a source close to the family has said that Goldie Hawn is worried that the romance will go the same as her previous relationships since splitting from husband Chris Robinson, with whom she has a son, Ryder, in the summer of 2006.

Alex Rodriguez is batting a lackluster .238 so far this MLB season, but with his conquest of Kate Hudson, he's proving himself a prime time player just the same.

“Goldie feels it’s time Kate left the dating scene for a while," says a source. “Kate’s had a string of boyfriends since her divorce from Chris and it’s always the same pattern - she falls hard and fast, then gets bored or has her heart broken.

“Goldie hates the idea of seeing Kate getting hurt again.”

Over the past three years, Kate Hudson has dated Lance Armstrong, Owen Wilson and Dax Shepard, among others. Last year, A-Rod’s wife Cynthia Rodriguez filed for a divorce on the grounds of his “spiritual affair” with Madonna.

Madge later dumped him for a physical affair with Jesus Luz, but still claims credit for elevating his celebrity status and enabling him to bag Hudson.

According to reports, Britney Spears is dating Jason Trawick, her longtime agent. This has not been confirmed by Brit's camp, but something else has:

"The Circus Starring Britney Spears" worldwide tour, which we learned just yesterday is going down under, will be coming back to North America too!

Currently touring Europe, Britney Spears will return to North America later this summer to perform in 20 more cities in the United States and Canada.

The star continues to draw raves in London. The UK's Daily Mail wrote:

"The Circus starring Britney Spears, the relentlessly high octane and superbly choreographed affair, delighted 23,000 assembled fans last night."

High praise! Here's Britney in action ...

She's wowing audiences in Europe as we speak, but Britney Spears is, like, psyched to bring the Circus tour extravaganza back to her home turf.

"I'm so excited to bring The Circus back to North America. I've made some cool changes to the show that I think my fans are really going to love. I also get to bring the show to some new cities we missed the first time around," exclaims Britney's handler.

Glad to hear the tour will carry on. After all, the army of lawyers ain't gonna pay themselves. Follow the jump for Britney's new North American tour dates:

It was only a matter of time.

In the past week, Heidi Montag suffered an epic meltdown, bolted the Costa Rican jungle in a huff more than once, and was taken to the hospital after falling ill on the set of NBC's reality show I’m a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here.

But remember, this is Heidi we are talking about. As in, the wife of the great Spencer Pratt. Nothing can stop the gruesome twosome from trying to cash in!

If you recall, the 22-year-old reality TV star brought along dry shampoo as her "single luxury item" under the series’ rules, then flipped the f*%k out when one of her competitors yoinked it, eventually leading to Speidi's first departure.

Well, a rep for Heidi confirms that the 22-year-old star is getting ready to launch - you knew it was coming - her very own dry-shampoo line.

Heidi Montag as we are used to seeing her (right), and during her stint on I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, where she was seen sans makeup for a change.

The product will be called, appropriately, Heidi Montag Dry Shampoo.

No need for The Hills' plastic princess to worry about running out of the stuff in the future - she’ll have an entire line all to her useless self.

Chris Brown is keeping up with Khloe Kardashian! Sort of.

The celebrities both partied at LIV nightclub at the Fontainebleau Hotel, but as part of a big group that included Bow Wow, Mario and Omarion. Chris and Bow Wow were last seen together collaborating on these awesome YouTube videos.

Chris and Khloe "were not there 'together,'" a source tells E! News.

The 20-year-old Brown was seen chatting up girls poolside at the posh hotel, where Khloe's filming her new reality show Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami.

Last week, a staff member from The Hollywood Gossip tried to infiltrate said reality show and win a date with the lovely Kourtney, but it was not to be.

This isn't the first time Brown and Khloe Kardashian have been linked.

Khloe was supposedly seen with him before in South Beach, according to celeb gossip news reports, but it turned out to be a case of mistaken identity.

Chris Brown is scheduled to appear at a June 22 hearing on criminal threats and assault charges after he allegedly beat the crap out of Rihanna.

While the singer would undoubtedly prefer a plea bargain, which he has sought for months, Rihanna will testify against him if required by the court.
