Global consulting giant Accenture dumped cheating golf legend Tiger Woods yesterday, saying he is "no longer the right representative" of the company.

Woods' firing by Accenture will cost him $7 million a year.

Accenture is the first corporate sponsor known to have severed all ties with Woods, although AT&T and Gillette have also stopped running ads showing Tiger.

Nike and video game maker EA are standing by Tiger - for now.

But with Elin Woods' wedding ring off, various babes still coming out of the woodwork and Tiger on an indefinite break from golf, he's creating terrible PR 24/7 and not even competing in the sport he rules. Not what you want in a pitchman.

Given the obvious jokes you could make out of Accenture's ad taglines featuring Tiger Woods, you can certainly see why they washed their hands of him:

How can you plan ahead ... when you're juggling 15 bimbos?

What you did? 0 percent. Who you did? 100 percent.

Oh, it's a setback, all right.

Neither is your neighbor's lawn.

Pray with us, THG readers.

Kourtney Kardashian gave birth to a boy this morning, prompting a nationwide need to stop, bow our heads and ask the Man Upstairs to look after this addition to the Kardashian clan. He'll need all the help he can get.

Levi McConaughey

Indeed, Kourtney and shady boyfriend Scott Disick are now the proud new parents of Mason Dash Disick - seriously, his middle name is the same as the family boutique - who arrived in Los Angeles weighin seven pounds and six ounces.

Confirmed Kourt's publicist, at approximately 12:30 p.m. EST:

"Kourtney just delivered a healthy baby boy about an hour ago."

Earlier this week, sisters Khloe and Kim Kardashian said Kourtney thought her water broke because she felt some cold liquid on her leg.

Despite that faux pas, Kim believes her sibling will be a great mother.

"Kourtney didn't even like kids," Kim said recently. "I never thought she'd ever want to have a baby. [But now] I think Kourt's going to be the most amazing mom."

She'll certainly be the most amazing at pimping her child out on the cover of magazines. Look out, Larry Birkhead! You've got competition.

After weeks in seclusion, Tiger Woods' wife Elin was finally spotted in public this weekend - sans wedding ring - at a gas station near the Woods' Florida home.

Elin Nordegren Woods ventured out to take the couple's two children to a Christmas party Sunday, and The Sun (UK) has pics to show the ring wasn't worn.

She normally wears it, too, so this can't be a good sign for Tiger. He's been trying to reconcile with Elin, but she is rumored to be planning to divorce him.

Elin Woods' ring-less outing also came amid reports the sex scandal-plagued family was paid a visit by the Florida Department of Children and Families.

The child services visit, in which agency workers were flanked by cops, often visit families to ensure the well-being of children following domestic violence.

Vintage Elin Nordegren

This is Elin Woods. Tiger Woods is a frickin' idiot.

An epic fight at the couple's house is thought to have sparked the post-Thanksgiving car crash that exposed Tiger's seedy, secret, sex-crazed double life.

Tiger announced Friday that he's taking an indefinite break from golf in a bid to save his marriage to Elin and become a "better husband, father and person."

Good luck with that.

"She's putting on a brave face but she's hurting," says a source. "Tiger is doing all he can but I can't see them getting through this. The wounds are too deep."

It's hard for us to imagine her taking him back after this, as well. It wasn't exactly an isolated case ... or 10. There's cheating and there's being a man-whore.

Tell us what you think: Elin Woods should ...

 

Regardless, the world's #1 golfer has irreparably harmed his image. To further reinforce what a moron Tiger is, click to enlarge some Elin Woods pictures ...

Cori Rist, woman #5 or #6 (who even knows anymore) on the long-ass list of Tiger Woods mistresses, is breaking her silence about her fling with the golfer.

On the Today show Monday, she confirmed that she met Woods at a New York club in 2006 when his trainer invited Cori and friends to join Tiger for a drink.

"He was not afraid to show his affectionate side in front of everybody that was there," said Rist. "He was very affectionate, and he led me by the hand."

"Then we just kind of disappeared, and that was the start."

While she said she knew he was married (unlike Jaimee Grubbs' BS story), Rist said Tiger Woods always told her his marriage to Elin Nordegren was rocky.

"He was not happy at home with his wife," said Rist, a single mom. "He would stay because she was pregnant, and they were expecting their first child."

"Because of his reputation and image, he had to uphold that."

Cori Rist describes her "secret life" with Tiger Woods.

Rist, who's speaking out to make money off of her 15 minutes of fame refute "false gossip" about her, thought she was the only "other woman" in Woods' life.

But she recalled how in the middle of the night, he would wake up and start texting. Cori Rist said she now believes he was communicating with other women.

Still, she said Woods - who used a group of associates and friends to "plan" his extramarital affairs - kept pursing her until she ultimately turned him down.

"We had an argument over how I don't make enough time for him, and that was it," she said, adding that she feels sorry for Elin, Tiger's scorned spouse.

"I am just sorry for her pain. I hate that I'm a part of it," she said. "I have to take responsibility ... to look my son in the face and explain all this."

As the calendar gets ready to flip over to 2010, The Hollywood Gossip staff is looking back on the year that was. We're excited to present out 10 finalists for our prestigious, Third Annual Celebrity of the Year award.

These A-listers have given us their best, their worst, their naked pics (sometimes) and their hysterical, off-the-wall antics (often). It's time for THG to pay tribute to their unique greatness.

Last week, we continued the 2009 countdown with Carrie Prejean at number-eight. (No, it wasn't that low because she's Christian.)

Today: Celebrity of the Year finalist #7 … Taylor Swift!

On Top of the World

When the 2009 kicked off, Swift was a modestly successful singer on the rise. Her fan base was mostly comprised of the same tweens that screamed their lungs out for Zac Efron, Robert Pattinson and other celebs that were a notch below mainstream status.

Fast forward 12 months, however, and the numbers speak for themselves:

  • Swift's "Fearless" was the best-selling album of 2009;
  • She was named Artist of the Year by Billboard Magazine;
  • She won four Country Music Awards;
  • She won five BMI Awards;
  • She's been nominated for eight 2010 Grammys.

Aside from her trophy haul, Swift also made headlines this year when she was rudely cut off by Kanye West at the MTV Video Music Awards. She handled the incident with maturity and grace, earning many new fans in the process.

Taylor concluded the best year of her life with a widely-praised Saturday Night Live hosting gig; and by entering into a rumored relationship with Taylor Lautner.

The only downside to 2009 for Swift? She's guaranteed that 2010 will be a let down in comparison!

According to reports, Pirates of the Caribbean star Orlando Bloom is engaged to his model girlfriend Miranda Kerr. No, for real, this time he supposedly is.

Reports say he popped the question while on vacation in Morocco. They reportedly got engaged in May, too, but that was bogus. Is this time the real deal?

He and the Victoria's Secret model have been dating for nearly three years. According to OK!, the brother of Miranda Kerr confirmed the news, saying:

"He's finally done it. Orlando proposed. They're getting married.”

Well, that's good enough for us! The pair, who've been denying rumors of wedding bells for months, are reportedly planning to tie the knot next summer.

Congratulations if it's true! And we totally hope it is!

KERRBLOOM! Hopefully, this time the rumors are true.

At least some wood will be left in Tiger's bag ... or something.

After rumors that we might see Tiger Woods nude in Playgirl surfaced, we thought we might see the world's top golfer give Levi Johnston a run for his naked money.

But the mag has decided not to move forward with a spread.

"Playgirl has decided to turn down the alleged Tiger Woods nude photos, reportedly taken by camera phone by Woods himself," said Daniel Nardicio, the director of marketing for Playgirl. "This is a direction Playgirl does not want to take."

"We prefer subjects who are willing."

That's what the world's #1 golfer said ... about his mistresses! Just kidding, although judging by his list of women, the guy had plenty of eager takers.

We won't be seeing Tiger Woods naked, unlike half the female population.

Woods' camp has been scrambling to lock down any such images, scoring a preemptive court order in the UK blocking publications from running with the shots.

Of course, they also feign ignorance, claiming: "Our client is not aware of any images and in any event he would not have consented to any such photographs."

In closing: there are no Tiger Woods nude pics ... probably.

Speaking of unwilling naked magazine photo shoot participants, it appears that "alleged" Woods mistress No. 1 Rachel Uchitel ain't going to share, either.

"Rachel will not be appearing in Playboy," Uchitel's lawyer, Gloria Allred, tells E! News in response to reports that Playboy sought Rachel Uchitel nude.

Makes sense. She's a very wholesome girl, after all.

However, our staff has chipped in and purchased many layers of clothing for the young star. After all, we wanna see her succeed on the big screen... just not as an adult film actress!

The rising star celebrates a milestone today, finally turning the legal drinking age. We'd imagine she raises a flute of champagne or two with dreamy boyfriend Zac Efron.

What do you get a young woman that has a successful career and a hunk on her arm? Aside from advice to never pose naked again, we can only come up with birthday wishes from an adoring public. Send them in today!

The Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) escorted by deputies from the Orange County Sheriff's Department, visited Tiger Woods' home Saturday.

Capt. Angelo Nieves of the Orange County Sheriff's Department confirmed that "our deputies met with members of the Department of Children and Families."

The details are being kept secret, but the mid-day visit to Woods' home came after the DCF received a complaint. From whom, and for what, we don't know.

A rep for the DCF later said in a statement that it was a "well-being check." It is unclear if Tiger and/or Elin Woods were in the house at the time of the visit.

DEEPER INTO THE WOODS: The Tiger scandal thickens further.

The visit was not specifically an investigation into Tiger and Elin Woods, but a routine procedure after a complaint is lodged. The department not only evaluates safety of children but adults in the house after it receives word of potential trouble.

Typically, investigators from the DCF evaluates the safety of a home for kids after a domestic violence incident is reported - and we're pretty sure there was one.

The new twist in the seemingly endless scandal clearly stems from the alleged fight with his wife that led to Tiger's wild one-car accident just after Thanksgiving.

Tiger and Elin Nordegren Woods, who married in 2004, have two small children, ages 2 years and 10 months. There are rumors she plans to divorce Tiger soon.

A woman of zero many talents, Heidi Montag now fashions herself a writer.

The Hills star recently penned a poem for her husband, Spencer Pratt, and - surprise, surprise! - she wants the whole world to read her expression of love.

"Here is a poem I wrote for my hubby Spencer [Pratt]," she Twittered.

In the untitled prose, Heidi writes about their "flawless lives" and how she has "no more anxiety or stress" because "all that matters" in this world is him.

Speidi Kiss

Spencer and Heidi: the embodiment of true love.

You may vomit on cue. But if it's this or her giving interviews about him making her orgasm all day long ... maybe we can stomach the poem a little better.

Follow the jump to read the unintentionally hilarious prose from reality star, author, model, aspiring signer, full-time celebrity and now poet, Heidi Montag:
