The now-infamous Mel Gibson tapes are as shocking as anything we've heard ... well, ever. But the mystery surrounding them has become a separate and equally bizarre component in the actor's custody fight with Oksana Grigorieva.

There may finally be an answer to how Gibson's insane rants against Grigorieva were leaked online, something Oksana has denied being responsible for.

Several sources close to the case say Oksana's younger sister, Natalie Grigorieva, is suspected of being Radar Online's mystery Mel Gibson tape source.

Natalie is being investigated by authorities.

"I suspect if the authorities look at the sister, they'll find a wire transfer or a check to her from [Radar]," a source said. "She and Oksana are very close."

Another source claims that Oksana's sister was even involved in shopping the tapes to media outlets before making the sale to the celebrity gossip site.

Did Oksana's sister leak the tapes?

"All the tabloids said no to the deal because they were asked to purchase the [Mel Gibson tapes] before even listening to them," another source said.

If Natalie Grigorieva is found to have brokered a deal at the behest of her sister, it's possible a judge could find the Russian singer in contempt of court.

Oksana Grigorieva, under investigation herself for extortion, also could face charges based on text messages and e-mails she sent to the actor.

In a text message obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Oksana allegedly wrote Mel that she taped him because "you broke your agreement with me."

The two parties, who share an eight-month-old daughter, had agreed on a $15 million deal over custody and keeping all "evidence" confidential.

But Oksana left it on the table because, she said, it gave Gibson unsupervised visits with their child, and she feared for Lucia's safety around Mel.

Kate Gosselin and her brood are currently Alaska to film TLC's Kate Plus 8. Rumor has it they've got a camping trip planned up north with the most famous Alaskan!

Sarah Palin will be making a guest appearance, according to reports.

Kate and Kids

The Gosselins were spotted in Anchorage Thursday and Friday. The kids had fun, but it's all about the Kate Plus 8 ratings - and two pop culture phenoms colliding.

The Dancing With the Stars alum is slated to meet with former Governor Sarah Palin for a camping excursion that will be shown on the series. Words fail us now.

During their stay, the Pennsylvanians will also be receiving a hands-on natural history lesson from Palin’s father, Chuck Heath, and Sarah's brother, Chuck Jr.

Both Chucks are school teachers in America's 49th state.

TLC-YA THERE: The Palins will welcome the Gosselins to Alaska!

"She's excited because it will be fun and educational for the children. Sarah will even teach Kate how to avoid bears!" the source told In Touch about Palin.

Valuable life lessons for the kiddos, for sure. We just hope they don't bring in Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin to offer tips on how to avoid teen pregnancy.

Palin's representatives referred reporters to TLC when contacted about the In Touch report, while the network subsequently stated that it had no comment.

While not officially confirmed her appearance would make some sense, given that it offers a nice tie-in with Sarah Palin's Alaska, which TLC landed in March.

The eight-episode documentary will feature the former V.P. candidate spotlighting various facets of Alaskan life, and is being produced by Mark Burnett.

We eagerly await the announcement of a Palin-Gosselin 2012 ticket. Which of these famous families would you rather go camping with? Vote:

It might look like all fun, games, amazing dinners and contrived drama, but filming a reality show like The Bachelorette can be tough. Just ask Ali Fedotowsky.

“I was always hungry!” she tells OK! about how she gained 10 pounds on the show (not that anyone knew). “I didn’t think much of it, but everyone noticed.”

We doubt it. We've seen no Bachelorette spoilers about Ali's alleged weight gain. If anything, an extra few pounds look good on her. But it's all good either way.

How did she change her eating habits when she got back home?

“I am good during the week, and one day I pig out,” Ali says. “But I don’t cook! I am learning a little bit. I can be hard to eat healthy when you don’t cook."

"I love egg white omelets because I can actually cook the egg whites myself! I also go to the grocery store, and I will buy the ready-made grilled chicken."

"I buy 4-5 at a time, and I’ll have them with a salad - a prepared salad from a bag.” And there's your Ali Fedotowsky diet, folks. But what about exercise?

“I am not the person who will be at the gym all the time,” she says. “Usually, I do the treadmill for about 30 minutes, or I will try to do something else.”

Something that helps take out aggression at Frank Neuschaefer?

“I love kickboxing. I have a personal trainer for it. We do contact kickboxing; she holds the pads up for me. It’s such a great workout for my core."

"You can think of ex-boyfriends while you’re doing it!"

Who should she pick on the August 2 finale?

The-Dream has a problem.

Christina Milian wants a judge a throw out her husband's divorce papers, claiming he not only lied about the status of their relationship, but cheated on her.

The-Dream Pic

Milian is livid over The-Dream's claim that they were legally separated when he filed for divorce in February and he was simply too embarrassed to admit it.

That took place days before Milian gave birth to their daughter.

In her legal response, filed last week in Georgia, she claims the marriage wasn't over then, and they had "marital relations on numerous occasions" after.

THE-DIVORCE: It's getting ugly for Milian and Dream.

In addition to disputing the February separation, Christina has other issues.

Milian also claims that if the court does grant the divorce, it shouldn't be based on The-Dream's claim that the 10-month marriage is "irretrievably broken."

Instead, it should be because the The-Dream was cheating on her.

Even worse, Milian says she signed a settlement agreement with The-Dream in which both waved alimony or ownership rights to the other's property.

The problem? Milian only signed when The-Dream brought them to her bedside when she was none-months pregnant and not in the proper mindset.

Gabriella Montez who?!?

In the upcoming movie Sucker Punch, it's safe to say that Vanessa Hudgens leaves her High School Musical character behind. Far, far behind.

Sleek and Straight

As Blondie, Hudgens plays a girl that comes to life in an alternate reality. The film is directed by Zach Snyder and focuses on an institutionalized woman that gets sent to a psychiatric facility by her stepfather. It comes out in March 2011.

In an interview this week, boyfriend Zac Efron described Hudgens as someone who "loves to have fun." It certainly looks like that applies in this case, doesn't it?

What's a break-up between close friends?

While Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato ended their romantic relationship in May, the pair still talk glowingly about each other in public and will soon go on tour with one another. Might this cause tension?

No way, Joe told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show today. He said: "Demi [Lovato] has been a friend of mine for a long time. I think that our friendship is so strong that it surpasses a lot of things and I think touring will be a lot of fun."

Starting on August 7, Lovato will open for Joe and his brothers as they all travel the country together.

Jonas says everything has "definitely been cool" between him and Demi since they split, making the duo about 16 billion times more mature than Michael Lohan and Kate Major.

Joe, meanwhile, recently returned from a charitable trip to Africa. He's pretty much perfect.

The saga continues ... TMZ reports that Oksana Grigorieva told authorities Mel Gibson plotted to break the kneecaps of ... TMZ head honcho Harvey Levin.

Oksana's rep, Steve Jaffe, told Harvey earlier this week that Mel had described to Oksana a plot to kill him. The motive? Revenge against Levin - and Jews.

According to Oksana, Mel told her he was livid that TMZ broke the story about his DUI arrest and insane anti-Semitic rant way back in the summer of '06.

Jaffe said Oksana told him Mel wanted the "blood of Jews" on his hands. Guess by being Jewish and running TMZ, Levin is basically Satan in Mel's mind.

We haven't even gotten to the details. Oksana Grigorieva said Mel had someone do "surveillance" on Harvey, having him followed to the gym at 4 a.m.

The plan? To abduct the legal eagle and celebrity gossip executive, strip him, take him deep into the desert, break his kneecaps and leave him to die.

'Sana

According to TMZ's report on this story, the desert/kneecap plot was investigated and is false. First off, Oksana had the wrong gym Harvey Levin frequents. 

More significantly, Oksana never mentioned this to her lawyers while she tried negotiating the $15 million deal with Gibson in May during their mediation.

At the time, she was wielding one Mel Gibson tape after another as a weapon, using "every piece of ammunition imaginable" to score financially from Mel.

One would think a plot to off Harvey Levin would come up then if she really had knowledge of one. This story only makes Oksana look sketchier than ever.

Oksana claims to have told officials about the plot. Not so.

Says an L.A. Sheriff's Department spokesman: "We categorically deny that any such information was ever given to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department."

It appears to us that whatever Mel Gibson is guilty of, Oksana is clearly hurting her own cause with shady behavior attempts to tarnish his image more.
