Happy Thanksgiving from all of us here at The Hollywood Gossip. What would this traditional holiday be without family, friends, food, football and reflection upon some of the things we most appreciate in our lives.

For this celebrity news site, that means expressing thanks to some of the biggest turkeys we've come to know this past year. Below is a look at our staff's Top 10 (take a wild guess who was voted our Biggest Turkey of the Year) ...

Conservator and Daughter

10. Riley Giles. Not only does he give Lindsay Lohan a good stuffing, this clown is a meathead to the max. See mug shots. Yeah. Prime turkey material.

9. John Mayer. Makes the list in spite (or perhaps because) of the fact that he dates Minka Kelly. Guy's dome is also roughly the size of Plymouth Rock.

8. Michael Vick. Oh, wait, he's a dog.

7. Jan Adams. Worst. Doctor. Ever.

6. Brad Womack. Worst. Bachelor. Ever.

5. Dancing with the Stars judges. These losers really dropped the ball this season with some dubious decisions. Sabrina Bryan was robbed worse than Native Americans by the New World's European settlers. Close, anyway.

4. Spencer Pratt. The Hills villain sure can gobble up publicity.

3. Heather Mills. Imagine the kind of Thanksgiving feast you could throw after gold-digging your way to more than $50M of your ex-husband's fortune!

2. Blake Fielder-Civil. Raging alcoholism. Massive quantities of hard ass drugs. The surprise wedding. The bloody melee. A barroom brawl. Some witness tampering. This holiday, Amy Winehouse's husband should be thankful he's alive.

Fnally, The Hollywood Gossip's Biggest Turkey of the Year award goes to ...

1. Britney Spears. Talk about a foregone conclusion. Like the New England Patriots of the NFL, it was Britney Spears in her own league and everyone else playing for second. We raise a turkey leg (and some pork rinds) to you, Brit.

Gossip hounds love nothing more than when one of their favorite celebrities is dating someone new. Especially if that someone is relative unknown, an individual shrouded in mystery who we can't wait to learn about.

That said, The Hollywood Gossip has put together a list of some of its favorite obscure celebrity boyfriends who have come and gone in the past six months - along with some who are still hanging around. Because some of our subjects are, well, obscure, some of our details are sketchy at best. But we'll break it down for you as best we can.

1. Harry Morton

Celebrity Girlfriend: Lindsay Lohan
When They Got Together: Early July 2006
When & Why They Broke Up: Late September, 2006. Because Lohan is a train wreck.
Relationship Highlights: Harry Morton, heir to the Hard Rock fortune and president of the Pink Taco restaurant chain [insert crude Lohan joke here], was smitten with the actress last summer. But since he doesn't drink, and she does little else, it wasn't meant to be.

At least his family was reportedly going to buy the Arizona Cardinals' stadium and name it Firecrotch Field (okay, we made up the last part). After fading from the spotlight, there were rumors that Morton slept over at Paris Hilton's home on November 14, though we never heard more about it.

2. Braxton Olita

Celebrity Girlfriend: Ashlee Simpson
When They Got Together: 2005
When & Why They Broke Up: September 4, 2006
Relationship Highlights: Braxton, the guitarist in Ashlee's band (yes, she actually has a band) captured her heart for what seemed like an eternity in Hollywood. She even declared that she was saving herself for the Hawaiian. But alas, they broke up with little fanfare. It's just as well. Braxton was probably sick of listening to her not sing live. That's right, she doesn't sing.

3. Samuel Plouchart

Celebrity Girlfriend: Nicole Richie
When They Got Together: October 6, 2006
When & Why They Broke Up: There was never really any news about it, but no one ever heard from Samuel Plouchart again after October 11.
Relationship Highlights: Wondering if Plouchart, the fashion editor at the French magazine Citizen K, brags to pals that he got the sloppy thirds of Brody Jenner and DJ AM.

4. Max Snow

Celebrity Girlfriend: Mary-Kate Olsen
When They Got Together: Sometime between September 20, 2006 and October 18, 2006. On the latter date, the more famous one of the Olsen Twins was seen with Snow. But in mid-September, she was reportedly with Killers drummer Ronnie Vannucci.
When & Why They Broke Up: For some reason (probably money), the 21-year-old Snow appears to like dating Mary-Kate and is still together with her.
Relationship Highlights: The absurd outfits Mary-Kate and sister Ashley Olsen wear. And the way the tabloids try to describe Max Snow. Is he a rocker? No. Does he dress like one? Yes. Does he have friends that are rockers? Yes. Does anyone know what Max Snow does with his life besides hang out with Mary-Kate? No. Thus, he's a perfect addition to this list.

5. Nick Zano

Celebrity Girlfriend: Kristin Cavallari (present)
When They Got Together: Mid-November, 2006. On November 8, we ran a pic of Cavallari and Jason Wahler together. Not sure if they got it on, but she was reportedly single at that point. She and Nick Zano were first spotted in public together November 21.
When & Why They Broke Up: They rung in the new year together and are still dating and sucking face wherever they go. At first, this relationship seemed like a cheap ploy to make her ex, Brody Jenner jealous, but now it's looking like these two lovebirds are quite content with each other.
Relationship Highlights: For Nick Zano, that he gets to make out with Kristin Cavallari in public. For us, that we get to post Kristin Cavallari pictures online. Which may sound pathetic, but it's better than nothing.

6. J.R. Rotem

Celebrity Girlfriend: Britney Spears
When They Got Together: December 11, 2006
When & Why They Broke Up: December 12, 2006. He's a dirtbag.
Relationship Highlights: Andy Warhol, who once wrote that everyone has 15 minutes of fame, would be proud of this "music producer" for trying to exploit his after a one-night stand with Britney. Then he'd roll over in his grave as Rotem got negged at Hyde the next night.

7. David Katzenberg

Celebrity Girlfriend: Mary-Kate Olsen, Nicky Hilton (present)
When They Got Together: Early November, 2006
When & Why They Broke Up: Still going strong as of late December. Nicky Hilton keeps a lower profile than sister Paris, so it's harder to keep track of her.
Relationship Highlights: Other than the revelation that David Katzenberg also used to date Mary-Kate Olsen on the day he and Hilton were first seen together, not many. Seems like a nice young man.

8. Rupert Friend

Celebrity Girlfriend: Keira Knightley
When They Got Together: Fall 2006
When & Why They Broke Up: For the moment, at least, Keira appears to have a good friend. In Rupert Friend. Sorry, we just can't get enough of that one.
Relationship Highlights: There were rumors that the two were engaged about a month ago, but it turns out they were just bickering. Since then, Keira wasting away to nothing before our eyes, Rupert looking like a cross between Orlando Bloom, a psycho old dude and the infamous Nick Nolte mug shot.

9. Stavros Niarchos

Celebrity Girlfriend: Mary-Kate Olsen, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton (present)
When They Got Together: We're not even going to attempt to answer that
When & Why They Broke Up: Presumably because he cheated on one of the above celebrities with another of the above celebrities
Relationship Highlights: By now, the Greek God of Poontang isn't really obscure anymore. To quote Office Space, the guy gets around... like a record. But at some point, he was just some rich Greek shipping tycoon's kid. He hasn't done a thing to be famous except be wealthy and get his freak on with this triumvirate of pain. We salute Stavros Niarchos for that, sure - we just refuse to acknowledge that he's an actual celebrity. Then again, we feel the same way about Paris Hilton, whom he may or may not be getting engaged to soon.

10. Isaac Cohen

Celebrity Girlfriend: Britney Spears
When They Got Together: Early January, 2007
When & Why They Broke Up: Still together, as of this posting, but knowing Spears' track record (see #6 above), it could be off by the time you read this.
Relationship Highlights: A steamy boat ride and one public appearance are all we have to go on at this stage. Initially, people criticized Cohen for looking a bit too Kevin Federline-esque, but it looks as if he cleans up well. Moreover, a couple of our readers claim to know Isaac Cohen a little and say he is a decent guy who is not out for publicity. Here's hoping he can "spank the skank" out of our girl.

It's been six months since The Hollywood Gossip made its debut on the World Wide Internets. From single, humble post about Lindsay Lohan grew a giant, a website so jam-packed with celebrity news, rumors and breasts that some days, we can barely make sense of it all.

On this special six-month anniversary, T.H. Gossip would like to thank you, the fans who make us one of the fastest growing celebrity gossip sites on the web.

Now let's pause and take a look back at some of the unforgettable, marquee moments that have defined the first six months of THG:

SEX TAPES

If the last six months have taught us anything, it is not to underestimate the power of the celebrity sex tape.

All it takes is one of those things to get the tabloids buzzing and bring a D-List star back into the limelight - and make lots and lots of money for David Hans Schmidt.

While the Dustin Diamond sex tape is the only confirmed amateur porn video made by a "celebrity" in THG's time (and probably the first to feature the Dirty Sanchez), there were rumors of similar porn involving Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson, Ashlee Simpson and others. Not to mention some Marcia Cross nude pics that Schmidt somehow got. That guy is a sick, sick bastard.

BIGOTED OUTBURSTS

Thursday, July 27, is a night that will live in Hollywood Gossip infamy. Even in the crazy world of celebrity news, there may never again be a story quite like the drunken driving arrest-turned anti-Semetic tirade brought to us by Mel Gibson that evening.

Rest assured, however, that former Seinfeld star Michael Richards (and to a lesser extent, Andy Dick) are trying like hell to grab a piece of the pie. Racist and disturbed as said pie may be.

CELEBRITY BABIES

So many to list, so little time. We'll stick to the most popular. We were predicting that little Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt would be the most talked about celebrity baby ever. But what Shiloh embodies in cuteness, she lacks in controversey. TomKat refused to release any pictures of Suri Cruise for, like, ever, leading some people to think the little Asian sweetheart didn't even exist. Things got even weirder when Britney's second son, Jayden James, was originally thought to have been named Sutton Pierce Federline.

There were others, too, of course. Thijs is one of them.

WEDDINGS

Tom Cruise. Katie Holmes. It's all we heard about for months, and despite getting left off the invite list (thanks guys), we were thrilled to cover the Italian gala as only we could. From very far away, and ripping those crazy, fun-loving Scientology worshippers at every turn.

As for other weddings... were there any other weddings? TomKat seems to occupy all our available brain cells. As we've seen in recent months, people steadfastly stating they are not getting married is the new thing, even if they're happy and in love (and sexy!) like Brangelina.

BREAKUPS

Perhaps the most popular topic of any day at T.H. Gossip. Couples seem to be splitting up faster than Nicole Richie sheds pounds or Paris Hilton's panties come off after a night at Hyde. The last six months marked the end of some couples we thought would never break up - and some that didn't exactly shock us by parting ways.

Rachel Bilson and Adam Brody, a cute couple on and off the set of The OC, recently confirmed they're done. Sadly, the same can't be said for their television show. Denise Richards dumped and got a restraining order against Charlie Sheen (who loves him some drugs and hookers), though they've agreed to divorce amicably since. Ryan Phillippe couldn't stand his wife's higher salary and greater fame any longer, possibly cheating on her with Abbie Cornish.

Back in early summer, sir Paul McCartney and his gold-digging, one-legged former "instructional sex tape" star/wife Heather Mills announced their split.

A lot of funny stuff followed - mostly related to Mills' tawdry past. Many more juicy tidbits about Mills having sex with Arab arms dealers is still to come. While all this was going on, Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock got married, only to call it quits after a whole three months of wedded bliss.

Oh, and Britney Spears is single again and partying a lot after announcing she plans to divorce K-Fed. Maybe you heard?

In closing, we'd like to once again thank our fans, and the celebrities themselves, without whom this wouldn't be possible.

We dedicate the next six months to Peter Sarsgaard. Peace.
