Watergate, it's not, but a document found in a California state university trash bin last week shed interesting light into Sarah Palin's upcoming speech there.

On Tuesday, California Attorney General Jerry Brown said his office would look into finances of the California State University, Stanislaus Foundation. Why?

For potentially violating ethics laws by keeping details of Palin's contract secret.

The former half-term Alaska Governor is scheduled to speak at a June 25 gala hosted by the foundation to commemorate the university's 50th anniversary.

Brown's investigation was prompted in part, by a group of CSU Stanislaus students who retrieved five pages of the contract from a campus trash bin.

This after hearing administrators were engaged in shredding documents - and some stuff they allegedly shredded paints a diva-like picture of Palin.

The contract detailed the alleged politician's requirements for her visit, including first-class flights from Anchorage to California - if she flies commercial.

If not, "the private aircraft MUST BE a Lear 60 or larger," the contract specifies (large enough to accommodate her ego entourage, in other words).

The renowned nuclear weapons expert also must be given a suite at a deluxe hotel, and a lectern stocked with two water bottles with bendable straws.

Regular straws and the deal is off. You got that?!

The document, dated March 16, does not include specific compensation details for Sarah Palin, who commands speaking fees as high as $100,000.

"This is not about Sarah Palin," Brown said. "The issues are public disclosure and financial accountability in organizations embedded in universities."

Come on, it's a little about Sarah Palin. Doesn't sound like a scandal worthy of major attention ... well, besides perhaps on the Sarah Palin Network.

Rumors surfaced in February that Matthew Fox pulled a Josh Duhamel and cheated on his wife with some random stripper. Pretty wrong if it's true.

But Fox has finally broken his silence to say that it's not, and there was no such railage of Stefani Talbott at Stars Cabaret club in Bend, Oregon.

Fox has been married to wife Margherita for over 18 years, and in an interview with Playboy, he denied any sort of cheating on his better half.

Mysteries of the island remain, however (see Lost review from last night).

Matthew Fox, Wife

Matthew Fox and wife Margherita Fox.

"The story is not true, and I’m not going to comment [further] on it," he said. "Margherita and I have been best friends and best lovers."

"She's the love of my life."

"We have managed to both be intensely independent and maintain strength in our relationship. I am a man, and I am an appreciator of women. At the same time, Margherita is the s—. I can honestly say we're good together."

"We've been together for 23 years, so let's leave it at that."

Well, that settles that. Hopefully Fox is telling the truth and we can leave it at that, and he isn't hopping aboard the Jesse James Express to marriage exile.

According to Khloe Kardashian's latest blog entry, the family's Miami clothing store has undergone major changes.

Hmmm... we wonder if this means the sisters will actually work there now. We have it on first-hand authority that the establishment is rarely open.

Ignoring that tidbit, Khloe writes: Kourt and I came to Miami to revamp Dash, and that's exactly what we did! We worked our little tushies off and were so excited about the store's fab new makeover that we thought what better way to celebrate than by getting one of our own.

After giving props to photographer Nick Saglimbeni, Khloe explains that she and her sister - along with new "dash dolls" Jessica and Katy - are actually naked in the promotional shot below. They're merely covered in body paint:

Nude for Dash

As always, this is nothing but a shill for the family's reality show.

"Our airbrushing adventures were captured on camera so you can catch it all in an brand spanking new episode of Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami. WOOOHOOOOOOO so excited!!!"

Sorry, Khloe. But why would we do that when we can stare at your naked body in PETA ads instead? And also because the show is 100% contrived and scripted?

Below, you can click on a pair of behind-the-scenes pics from the photo shoot. Kourtney hasn't looked this intense since producers told her to act troubled over her storyline-planned pregnancy...

Nicollette Sheridan says she felt compelled to bring a lawsuit against Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry, following an incident last year in which the actress says her boss struck her across the face.

Now, Sheridan's former co-workers feel equally compelled to stand up for Cherry.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

The main Desperate Housewives cast members - Eva Longoria Parker, Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman - have issued a joint statement that pledges full support for Cherry. It reads:

"It would be irresponsible of us to let the public believe that being a part of this show from its inception has been anything but a blessing. We have no first-hand knowledge of what Nicollette may or may not have experienced, but we would never characterize our set as a hostile environment.

"It is, in fact, the opposite. The friendships and support that Marc Cherry, the cast, the crew and the producers have shared for the past six years have made this a wonderful job that we are grateful for every day."

Because Teri Hatcher was singled out in the lawsuit - Sheridan alleges Cherry said he hopes Hatcher "gets hit by a car and dies" - that actress says she never authorized Sheridan's attorneys to use her name and:

"While my adoration and respect for the classic and dynamic chemistry of the characters of Susan and Edie is indelible, I'm honored to stand with Eva, Felicity and Marcia, as a group and clarify that our set environment is nothing less than an amazingly positive experience. I have never felt discriminated against. In fact, I have felt heard and respected by Marc and other executives in regards to both my professional and personal needs."

Man, no Desperate Housewives spoilers or storylines can compare to the drama taking place away from the set of this hit show. Whose side are you on in the battle between Sheridan and Cherry?

The stakes were raised for the American Idol finalists last night.

It was Elvis Presley week, for starters, as it's always a challenge to sing classic singles by one of the most iconic artists of all-time.

Meanwhile, Adam Lambert served as a mentor, bringing extra attention to the broadcast by fans of last year's runner-up. As if that wasn't enough, the contestants took the stage aware that TWO of them would be sent home, following last week's save of Michael Lynche.

So, who stepped up his/her game in the face of such pressure? Let's find out...

  1. Lee DeWyze made the perfect song choice in "A Little Less Conversation." It's one of Elvis' most catchy hits and, as the judges keep telling us, Lee has one of the best radio voices in the competition. An ideal combo.
  2. Crystal Bowersox is almost a bore at this point. Not really, of course, but her rendition of "Saved" was just the latest example of why she's guaranteed to finish in the top three and will likely win it all.
  3. Michael Lynche didn't make Simon and company regret saving him. He sat on the stage, strummed his guitar and did what he does best: connect with the audience.
  4. Tim Urban earned raves for the second consecutive week. Another great song choice here, as viewers suddenly Can't Help Falling in Love with the cute crooner.
  5. Casey James might be playing it too safe. His performances are always similar, which isn't a bad thing - but also make it impossible to ever award him the top spot.
  6. Aaron Kelly could be in danger of elimination, as nothing stood out about his "Blue Suede Shoes." No 'wow' moment, as Simon likes to say.
  7. Siobhan Magnus falls to the lowest spot we've ever had her at with her confusing arrangement on "Suspicious Minds." Not one of Elvis' better known singles, so we admire the risk she took. But it didn't pay off for a chance.
  8. Think Katie Stevens was venting to the judges with her choice of "Baby What You Want Me To Do?"
  9. Andrew Garcia sang "Hound Dog." He seems very nice, but will hopefully be singing it again tonight after he gets voted out.

Elin Nordegren Woods is fixing up a house on a newly purchased property in her native Sweden. Could she be planning to rebuild her life there, post-Tiger?

The golfer's estranged wife bought the private $2 million home late last year, and it was in need of some major TLC, which Elin is definitely putting into it.

Elin Nordegren, Children

Photos reveal that a major renovation is underway on the property, and builders are trying to get everything done by this summer, according to sources.

Tiger Woods, who just returned to competitive golf at last week's Masters, with Elin nowhere to be found, is scheduled to play the U.S. Open in late June.

Do they get U.S. cable in Sweden?

Will Elin Woods leave Tiger for good?

While it appeared as if a full reconciliation was likely, if not a done deal, in spite of allllllll the cocktail waitresses Tiger tapped, things have cooled in recent weeks.

Reports suggest she's unhappy he returned to golf so soon, and was incensed over Tiger's filthy, violent Joslyn James text messages that recently came to light.

Whatever the reason, they're taking separate vacations right now, and while you can't count out a reunion, things have definitely been on a downward trajectory.

What do you think Elin Woods should do?

This week, Dancing with the Stars voters got it right. Or at least we did.

If the goal were truly to rid the show of its worst performer, Kate Gosselin would have been gone last night ... and likely the previous two elimination rounds, too.

But Dancing with the Stars is as much a popularity contest as a competition, and All My Children star Aiden Turner lacked it, as well as talent. Not a good combo.

Still, host Tom Bergeron tried to tease us at the onset: "A favorite might be going home tonight." THG might get an exclusive sit-down with Brangelina today, too.

Despite her alleged breakthrough, Kate Gosselin was in the bottom three with Turner and Niecy Nash - the three poorest performers Monday, to voters' credit.

From that point on, you knew the fix was in for Kate Turner was toast.

Aiden Turner and Edyta Sliwinska Picture

Unfortunately, Edyta Sliwinska was eliminated last night.

Monday evening "was the first time I had total and complete fun and I'm addicted and I'm totally going to cry if it's over," Kate told co-host Brooke Burke Tuesday.

She was deemed safe before Aiden and Niecy, though, so she'll be back next week for "movie night," whatever that means. Turner's take on being exiled?

"Each week I came out here to give it my all," he said, smiling. That's all you can do. Bow down to the dancing goddess that is Kate Gosselin and move on.

Who are you rooting for on Dancing with the Stars?

This is an amazing video.

While Glee returned to Fox last night with a new episode, the Internet is buzzing today over the song that aired after the installment itself concluded.

Featuring Jane Lynch as her character of Sue Sylvester, and along with a couple other Glee cast members, the show actually put together a shot-for-shot recreation of Madonna's "Vogue" music video.

It's elaborate, it's entertaining and it's incredible that a TV show went to this length in order to promote an upcoming episode (tune in next week for a lot more of the Material Girl!).

Seriously, if this doesn't make you a Glee fan, nothing will. Sit back and watch the video below.

Remember Ashley Dupre? The high-priced hooker New York Governor Eliot Spitzer was caught sleeping with in 2008 and had to resign his job as a result?

We understand if you forgot, but Playboy didn't. As we previously reported, they scored an interview with the New Jersey native as well as a photo shoot!

Ashley Dupre Playboy Cover

Check out Ashley Dupre's Playboy cover for May here ...

The 24-year-old is featured in an eight-page spread, and talks about becoming a call girl, the Spitzer scandal, and what she thinks of Tiger Woods’ mistresses.

According to Ashley Dupre, people may call her the girl who brought down the governor of New York State, but she says that Spitz actually brought her down.

“As much as I wish I could make that go away, I can’t,” she says, adding that when the scandal broke, she saw her singing career "flash before her eyes." LOL.

Ashley Dupre, who you can see nude for only $4.99 next month (or probably for free online), used to charge thousands of dollars an hour for that privilege.

She is now a relationship advice columnist for the New York Post (seriously).

Michelle "Bombshell" McGee is, like, really sorry for what she did.

Her sincere apology to Sandra for banging Jesse James apparently hasn't stopped the tattoo model / stripper / porn star from continuing to cash in, of course.

The Bombshell

And why should it? The woman's got kids who need food, yo!

Michelle Bombshell is taking the Nazi Adultery Express on a cross-country nightclub tour, according to TMZ. Truly the best way to show genuine class and remorse.

Here's a look at a hot invite for next week:

BAD GIRL'S NIGHT OUT: What one lucky girl will attend?!

Sources close to McGee say that Jesse James' alleged mistress desperately wants to tell "her side of the story" so people won't hate her quite so much.

What better place than the nightclub circuit? As Tina Fey said on SNL, when your face looks like a seventh grader's binder, you've got low credibility.

In any case, Bombshell's first stop is the aptly named "Bad Girl's Night Out" party at LIV nightclub in the Fontainebleau hotel in Miami next Wednesday. 

A security team will be with her at the nightclub and throughout her stay at the Fontainebleau hotel ... just in case Sandra Bullock tries to whack her.
