Happy Thanksgiving to all from The Hollywood Gossip!

What would this holiday be without family, food, football and reflection upon the things we appreciate most ... in the case of THG, that means turkeys of a different sort.

On this 22nd of November, we're paying tribute to stars we had the honor and the burden of covering in 2012. We are talking fowl individuals here ... real bird brains.

Without further ado, THG's Top 10 Turkeys of 2012 ...

Spencer Pratt is a Turkey

Who will win the Sixth Annual Spencer Pratt Thanksgiving Turkey Award!?

10. Mitt Romney and Courtney Stodden (tie). One's a relentless fame whore married to a man three times her age. The other cost himself a good shot at the presidency thanks to 47 percent-style gaffes and never deciding what kind of candidate he felt like being. Really, we just wanted to make web history with the first-ever use of Mitt Romney and Courtney Stodden in the same sentence.

The National Basketball Association would like to wish you a very merry Christmas and a very happy holiday season.

In unique fashion.

A new ad features five of the league's best players - Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony, Joe Johnson, Russell Westbrooke and Dwyane Wade - showing off their dribbling skills via a very cool rendition of "Carol of the Bells."

The spot is meant to hype the NBA's Christmas slate of games, which will include special one-color jerseys for all involved. Watch and see what we mean now:

No, that headline is not a typo.

Jack Taylor, a  guard for Division III Grinnell College, shattered the NCAA single-game scoring mark last night by dropping 138 points on Faith Baptist Bible in a 179-104 victory.

Among the mind-boggling numbers associated with the feat:

  • Taylor took 108 shots, one every 20 seconds he was on the court.
  • He was 27 of 71 on three-pointers.
  • He only played 36 of a possible 40 minutes.

The accomplishment earned praise and amazement from those around the basketball spectrum, including a certain Lakers shooting guard who knows a thing or two about making buckets.

"That's crazy, man. I don't care what level you're at," Kobe Bryant said when told of the 138 points.

Expect him to try for 139 next game.

Chamique Holdsclaw, the ex-WNBA and University of Tennessee basketball star, is currently free on bail, following her arrest this week for allegedly firing a gun at ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lacy.

Chamique Holdsclaw Mug Shot

But new, disturbing information has leaked out regarding the incident, courtesy of a 911 call placed by a friend of Lacy's, who was in the vehicle when the Holdsclaw confrontation took place.

This friend describes Holdsclaw as "mentally unstable."

She goes on to tell the operator that the former Rookie of the Year poured gasoline all over Lacy's Range Rover, presumably to set it on fire. She specifically says that Holdsclaw attempted to "destroy" the car.

Holdsclaw fled the scene before she could do so and before authorities arrived. She then turned herself in and is clearly in major trouble.

Chicago Bears star Brandon Marshall tweeted a photo of himself in the locker room this week ... unaware, apparently, that a teammate was naked behind him.

Marshall had just received a package from the University of Central Florida, his alma mater, and proudly posted a photo of himself in shirt the school sent.

Just one problem ...

The inadvertent full-moon photobomb received wide distribution on the Internet, and Marshall quickly realized his mistake, deleting the photo and tweeting:

"Sorry about my guy in the back getting dressed in that photo."

Apology amusingly accepted, Brandon.
