John Edwards and his daughter Cate used to be tight.

Then, the disgraced politician became one of the worst people alive, cheating on his cancer-stricken wife, knocking up his mistress, paying an aide to take responsibility for the child. That sort of thing.

Now, in her first comments since her father's secret life became exposed, Cate is siding - strongly - with her mother, Elizabeth. She told People:

"There are the things she taught without words, [such as] how to continue to live your life on your own terms when it somehow becomes savaged by people you never invited into it."

(Pssst, Rielle Hunter: We think she's talking about you.)

Elizabeth Edwards also speaks on in next week's issue of the magazine, saying she's hard at work on a paperback edition of her memoir, Resilience.

It will include a new chapter reflecting on the most damaging aspects of the fallout from her husband's infidelity. Says Mrs. Edwards: "It’s my story and I’m writing it from here on out – nobody else."

On more than one occasion, Justin Bieber has been declared dead by the Internet.

For whatever reason, this adorable young singer is often the topic of online hoaxes and cruel jokes. It's something that apparently runs in the family. What do we mean?

Stud on the Drums

Gossip blogger Zack Taylor reports that Bieber's mother - yes, his mother! - has been offered $50,000 to pose topless in Playboy. There are no sources cited and nothing else to the article... but, hey, we're The Hollywood Gossip, not The Hollywood Fact.

It's our job to bring you every rumor out there, no matter how ridiculous it may seem.

Justin Bieber nude? HAWT! Justin Bieber's mom nude? No comment.

** UPDATE: Says a rep for Bieber:

"The rumors that Pattie Mallette is in talks with Playboy Magazine to appear in an upcoming issue are completely false. She has never been approached by Playboy magazine nor has she approached Playboy. This story is utterly erroneous, without a shred of truth. Consider this denial the final word on the matter."

Tiger Woods has another reason to celebrate.

A day after published DNA test results proved he did not knock up Devon James, it looks like his divorce is about to become official, according to reports.

Elin Nordegren Mansion

His legal separation from Elin Woods is imminent, as “They’ve agreed on all the major points,” one source reported. “It’s all been worked out privately."

“When they first started negotiating the divorce, it was acrimonious. Things are now very civil, at least in terms of getting the divorce taken care of."

While the terms of the settlement are unclear, “Both Tiger and Elin are very close to finishing the negotiations and filing and signing the paperwork.”

KISS OFF: The terms of his divorce from the ol' ball and chain nearly finalized, Tiger Woods is almost free to live the dream - play golf and holla at some hoes!

According to Radar Online, Elin Woods switched attorneys a little while ago and that took much of the aggression and anger out of the negotiations.

The couple is no longer (or barely) on speaking terms after attempts at reconciliation fizzled earlier this year around the time Tiger returned to golf.

Things got ugly fast as Elin talked about moving to Sweden with their children, but later backed off. Both Tiger and Elin met with lawyers this week.

The divorce terms are being worked out privately and when everything is done it will be filed in court, and “that day is almost here,” a source says.

I'm totally on ...

Wanna look like The Situation? Forget fake tanning and crunches.

Jersey Shore star Mike Sorrentino is set to make it easy for fans to copy his unique look: Us Weekly reports the well-chiseled ladies' man has partnered with Dilligaf by Bohica Bill to launch a line of "couture" clothing. 

Your Shirt is Too Small

These T-shirts, sweatshirts and accessories will hit stores next month.

This is more confusing than the popularity of Jersey Shore itself: When was the last time The Situation even wore a shirt?!?

"Mike 'The Situation' embodies our irreverent approach to life," wrote Dilligaf President Jodi Massry, supposedly seriously, in a statement. "He lives the 'Let's not take things so seriously' mentality every day."

By the way: Dilligaf stands for "Do I Look Like I Give A F***. Seriously. We couldn't make that up if we tried.

Before American Idol viewers decided to vote for the same guitar-playing male every season (David Cook...Kris Allen... Lee DeWyze), they selected Jordin Sparks as their champion.

We've been big fans of the talented singer since since she took the Fox stage and we were lucky enough to speak with her this week, as she took time away from her summer tour. We thank Jordin for her time and we present this exclusive interview below...

Nothing But Sparks

What has the American Idol experience been like for you? Can it be compared to what you imagined it would be like?
I imagined it would be easy, just a singing competition. HA! It was a lot of work and pretty stressful. But I made friendships that will last forever and I am really happy with how it turned out.

You've sung with Chris Brown. You've sung at the Super Bowl. What has been the most memorable professional experience for you?
Well, the fact that I get to sing for my job is the best thing. Everything else, the duet, the Super Bowl, touring... it's all a bonus.

Idol has received some criticism for naming three consecutive winners that were all very similar. Any thoughts on that?
I definitely think that when the show started to allow instruments, it opened itself up to a whole bunch of people who wouldn't have auditioned before. So I'm glad those people can have the opportunity as well. But the show shouldn't receive criticism for naming winners the audience voted for.

Any thoughts on Simon leaving?
It's bittersweet. Simon was made out to be the villain. I'm going to miss him for sure... It's going to be so different without [Paula and Simon]. I wish them nothing by the best in whatever they do moving forward.

What was it like to participate in the We Are the World remake?
It was amazing for me. The original is such a classic and pretty much everyone knows it... to see all the artists there for a cause bigger than ourselves was so humbling.

This is your first-ever solo tour. Talk about your plans and hopes  for it: 
I've been so used to being the opening act. I'm adjusting to having more songs to sing, going on later, etc. But I've been having so much fun!

Michael Jackson passed away a year ago today. He was 50. The year that followed has marked a celebration of his life, invigorating legions of fans old and new.

The past 12 months have also made clear that his life was as unusual as his career was successful. Personally and professionally, the icon truly had no peers.

Only Lady Gaga topped Michael Jackson in albums sold in 2009, an indication of his legacy. But the tragic, bizarre details of his demise are equally noteworthy.

On top of the immediate causes of his death, and the role of Dr. Conrad Murray, are lingering questions about how a star so bright fell so far from his past glory.

When it comes to Michael Jackson, truth is stranger than fiction. Here's a look back at some of the scandals and stories THG has covered since June 25, 2009:

R.I.P. Michael Jackson (1958-2009).

June 26, 2009: The coroner rules there was no foul play. More than six months later, however, Dr. Conrad Murray would face involuntary manslaughter charges.

June 30, 2009: Tabloids first report that Jackson's friend, Dr. Arnold Klein, is actually the biological father of his two older children, Prince and Paris Jackson.

July 6, 2009: On the eve of Jackson's memorial service, U.S. Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) decries society for glorifying MJ, who he calls a pedophile child molester.

July 7, 2009: MJ;s star-studded memorial service packs L.A.'s Staples Center and draws tens of millions of TV viewers; Paris Jackson's tears steal the show.

July 8, 2009: Bill O'Reilly likens Michael to O.J. Simpson.

July 13, 2009: La Toya Jackson says MJ was murdered.

Reuniting for the first time since the end of their fake relationship, Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi faced off in a joint interview on Wednesday night.

For a segment to air next month on The Bachelorette, of course.

Vienna Girardi Cheated!

The taped reunion between the fame-obsessed pair, whose breakup is becoming more bitter by the day, quickly got out of hand - and nearly violent.

According to reports, Jake Pavelka "exploded in anger" at Vienna Girardi and at one point turned toward her and pulled his arm back, making a fist.

It was a shocking display that left Vienna in tears, and left witnesses wondering if Jake might be getting ready to straight up whomp his ex-fiancee.

At another point, Jake told Vienna to "shut up" three times.

FAKE COUPLE, REAL DRAMA: That's Jake and Vienna for you.

The Breakup of the Century is dominating headlines this week, prompting ABC to capitalize by secretly reuniting the warring duo for footage that will air July 5.

They had to know what was coming (possibly because they scripted it).

“Jake was visibly angry,” a source said. “At one point he wheeled back and I thought he was going to throw a punch. He pulled his arm back, his hand in a fist.”

Despite obvious tension and drama, a longtime friend of Jake's insists: "Jake would NEVER hit her, EVER. End of story. The guy doesn't even use swear words."

ABC also denies that any punches or near-punches were thrown. "The atmosphere was emotionally charged," the network acknowledged in a statement, but:

"However, and contrary to reports that have surfaced, at no time was anyone physically in harm’s way, nor was anyone ever threatened with physical violence.”

As Bachelorette host-pimp Chris Harrison tried to keep things from getting heated, Pavelka stood up in frustration, asking pointedly, "Will you just let me finish?"

"He couldn't get a word out, it was very reflective of their relationship," says a source, who adds that host Chris often had to tell Girardi, "Vienna, let him talk."

We'll know for sure July 5, but she supposedly storms off in tears.

"Vienna was on the defense. She was trying to play victim."

Don't worry, Kellan Lutz and Peter Facinelli. We haven't forgotten about you.

While most attention paid to male stars of the Twilight Saga is centered around Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, these two studs aren't exactly hard on the eyes themselves, are they?

Lutz and Facinelli joined their Eclipse co-stars at that movie's Los Angeles premiere last night. Both were accompanied by pretty dates (AnnaLynne McCord and Jennie Garth, respectively) - but let's focus on just the hunks for now.

Compare, contrast, ogle and vote below...

Kate Gosselin debuted an interesting look yesterday.

Rocking oddly spiked eyebrows and a noticeably smoother face as she ran errands, the reality mom looks to have suffered botox treatments gone horribly wrong.

Mother of 8

In the before-and-after comparison of Kate Gosselin pictures below, you can see how her brow is elevated in an abnormally high position, looking quite off kilter.

Perhaps this to prep for guest-hosting The View? In any case, it's yet another case of unnecessary treatment coupled with poor exeuction. What a winning combo!

SO WRONG: Kate Gosselin made the right move ditching the reverse mullet dead opossum weave she patented, but what the hell happened to her face? Yeesh.

You'd think after getting a tummy tuck and a boob job (supposedly), she'd know where to find a good surgeon. Or perhaps Hailey Glassman's dad got revenge ...
