As 2009 draws to a close, The Hollywood Gossip staff is proud and excited to present 10 finalists for its prestigious, Third Annual Celebrity of the Year award.

These stars have given us their best, their worst, their naked photos (sometimes) and their hilarious, ridiculous scandals (often). It's time for THG to pay tribute to their greatness.

Earlier this week, we continued the '09 countdown with Molly Malaney and Melissa Rycroft in the #9 spot.

Today: Celebrity of the Year finalist #8 … Carrie Prejean!

When Barack Obama took office in January, who would have guessed that a blonde beauty queen would create more diversion between Republicans and Democrats than the nation's first African-American President?

But after Prejean took her stance on "opposite marriage" on April 19, all heck broke loose. Perez Hilton called her a "bitch," Carrie claimed she lost the Miss USA title due to her opinion, and every conservative alive chose this woman as their cause's role model.

She was discriminated due to her beliefs, they cried! She's a poor, defenseless, targeted Christian, they insisted!

After all, God was testing Prejean and while she passed, the rest of society failed. So said Carrie's supporters.

They stuck by her through rumors of a boob job; through blatant lies over topless photos; and through the eventual loss of her Miss California crown after Donald Trump grew sick of Carrie's act.

But Prejean continued to play the role of victim, even though her religion is the most popular in the country and even though her stance on gay marriage is agreed upon by a majority of voters. That wasn't enough. She was wronged dammit!

And you know who will pay for those wrongs, don't you? The consumers that actually bought Prejean's memoir, which recounted her harrowing story in detail. It's a nightmare many of us still can't awake from.

What do LeAnn Rimes, Scheana Marie and Carrie Underwood have in common?

It was Eddie Cibrian's alleged (or confirmed) dalliances with the first two and a certain song by the latter that send scorned wife Brandi Glanville over the edge.

Cibrian, who stars on CSI: Miami, filed a court declaration in a custody battle with his soon-to-be ex-wife, stating she slashed the tires of his Harley Davidson.

And she very much did!

"Yes, I slashed his tires," Brandi Glanville tells E! News. "It felt awesome!"

Brandi Glanville on The Real Housewives

Eddie Cibrian's cheating with LeAnn Rimes, who he is now dating, ultimately ended his marriage to Brandi Glanville. He was also fooling around with Scheana Marie.

The domestic dispute occurred August 1, weeks after the couple had separated, but while Cibrian was still living in the family’s guest house, Glanville recalls.

"He broke my heart, so I broke his Harleys," Glanville says. "It was right after I found out about girl No. 2, and I had that Carrie Underwood song in my head."

"I just went for it!"

Glanville is referring to waitress Scheana Marie, whom Cibrian reportedly hooked up with earlier this year, and Carrie's tire-slashing anthem "Before He Cheats."

In court documents, Cibrian says Glanville "verbally and physically attacked" him and "in a fit of rage, slashed the tires of my Harley-Davidson motorcycles."

Hey, at least he wasn't riding one of them at the time, like when Elin Woods attacked Tiger, resulting in his ill-fated, now-infamous Cadillac Escalade getaway.

This is getting really sad.

Kim Kardashian - the woman largely responsible for Speidi, Jersey Shore and other talentless people doing absolutely nothing in order to reap attention and money - has lost her innate ability to create headlines.

Kardashian Christmas Card

Just a few months ago, Kim would have posed for Playboy, banged a guy on video or at least stood on the red carpet in a tight top. Now? She's Tweeted a picture of herself at the dentist. Seriously.

“At the dentist for a good teeth cleaning!” she wrote. “This is serious!”

No, Kim, this is pathetic. Please take your clothes off again. That was a more respectable way to get attention...

Rachel Uchitel, the first mistress of golfer Tiger Woods, or at least the first one we came to know about, may be the first to get naked in Playboy as well.

Extra reports that Rachel is currently in negotiations with Playboy to pose for the men's magazine, and that the NYC club hostess "wants a lot of money."

No surprise there.

Uchitel was outraged after being called a hooker on The View, but clearly has no issues with posing nude other than whether she'll be getting paid enough.

Representatives for Playboy refused to comment on the rumors, and last week, Hugh Hefner himself seemed hesitant based to touch the Tiger scandal.

However, women in sex scandals are often in the publication's wheelhouse. In the past, Playboy did a spread on Paula Jones, among other examples.

Cough it up and make it happen, Hugh!

Tiger Woods saw Rachel Uchitel nude. Will the rest of us?

It seems like ages ago that Rachel Uchitel was linked to Woods after Ashley Samson ratted them out to the National Enquirer, but it was just two weeks ago.

Since then, many others have come forward with tales of being tagged by Tiger, much to Rachel's dismay. She's said to be getting screened for STDs.

He may have gotten around like a prostitute (he did several), but Tiger Woods clearly had feelings for Rachel, as his emotionally vulnerable emails proved.

If he was so upset about her past flings with stars like David Boreanaz, we don't imagine he'll enjoy her posing in Playboy for the entire world to see.

Especially since we won't be getting any at home from Elin.

First, she bashed the heck out of the Twilight Saga.

Then, she got denied from a 21-and-over club.

In both recent instances, the gist was the same: Miley Cyrus doesn't see herself as a typical 17-year old. She wants to be older, more mature, edgier.

Along those lines, Cyrus told British TV show GMTV this week that she wants to leave the pop music world behind.

"I want to do my last pop record, I'm working on a record right now. I kinda want... something edgier and not have to worry about people saying, 'Oh, this isn't what her fans want to listen to.' Because in a few years, as I grow up, so will my fans and I won't have to focus on that as much and I'll be able to have more of the sound of music that I'm into."

Last month, Miley admitted she had never heard a Jay Z song. So it makes sense she'd wanna branch out and give the world of country or adult contemporary a shot. But will her fans follow her there?

Only time, and album sales, will tell.

They've helped make The Real Housewives of Atlanta a hit for Bravo, but reports say Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes may not be invited back for a new season.

Producers are looking to replace the busty, loud-mouthed and constantly feuding stars, as "things with NeNe and Kim have been intense" on and off the set.

Baby Joy! Drama!

The frenemies are reportedly demanding bigger paychecks from Bravo for the upcoming season and producers are "fed up with their diva-esque requests."

A source says that Bravo realizes the risks of cutting Kim and NeNe loose, but "feels it is about the franchise as a whole and won’t let one person stop it.”

They're serious enough that they’re "taking meetings with notable, wealthy Atlanta women" about joining the show in Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes' place.

While Bravo had no comment on the reported cast shakeup, another source close to the matter said only that "no decisions on Season 3 have been made."

Are you upset NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak may get the axe?

Flaunted on very-public dates and outings, and at every single Yankees home game, Kate Hudson and Alex Rodriguez's steamy relationship is not a secret.

Still, on the Late Show with David Letterman last night, the actress didn't give in to the host's humorously nosy questions about her romance with A-Rod.

When Letterman opened up the questioning with, "So ... uou're a big Yankees fan, and you're friends with Alex Rodriguez," Hudson giggled sheepishly.

"Yeah, he's a friend of mine. Nice guy," she said.

So how did she and the Rod meet? "Can't we talk about the holidays?" she asked. Did she and the baseball star spend Thanksgiving together? Nothing.

Kate Hudson played it coy on the subject of A-Rod ... for once.

Letterman then prodded, "So is he a nice guy?" Hudson finally caved, saying, "Yeah, he's a nice guy ... You just can't help yourself! You just can't!"

"I knew it was going to come at some point!"

When Dave pointed out, "His game changed when you started showing up regularly at ball games," Hudson responded, "It was a really fun summer."

She refused to take credit for the Yankees' 27th World Series title, but there's no doubt Kate Hudson and Alex Rodriguez dating had a positive effect.

Follow the jump for a clip of Kate's question-dodging:

Jenny Sanford, the estranged wife of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, announced she is filing for divorce following his now-infamous affair this summer.

Mark Sanford admitted an extramarital affair with Maria Belen Chapur, an Argentinian woman, after flying down to see her in secret (he thought) in June.

In August, Jenny Sanford moved out, but said she still hoped to reconcile with her husband, with whom she has four sons. But those efforts were in vain.

"As so many of us know, the dissolution of any marriage is a sad and painful process. It is also a very personal and private one," she said in a statement.

"Because Mark and I are public figures, we have had less privacy with which to deal with our difficulties than other couples. I am now filing for divorce."

Jenny Sanford couldn't get past her husband's cheating and lying.

"This came after many unsuccessful efforts at reconciliation, yet I am still dedicated to keeping the process that lies ahead peaceful for our family.”

Once considered a potential GOP presidential contender for 2012, Mark Sanford refused to comment on Jenny's divorce filing earlier this morning.

Mark disappeared for several days in June, saying he was hiking on the Appalachian Trail. It turned out he flew to Argentina to be with his lover.

His tearful confession when the tryst with Maria Belen Chapur became known shattered his political career and nearly led to his impeachment.

If they couldn't make it work with after one affair, that doesn't bode well for Tiger Woods saving his marriage after racking up a list of mistresses.

With hits like The Vampire Diaries, Grey's Anatomy and FlashForward airing repeats until the new year, last night's TV offerings were somewhat limited.

But there were plenty of laughs to be had, thanks to holiday-themed episodes from NBC's roster of comedies and MTV's new, unintentionally funny hit.

Our friends at TV Fanatic have compiled some reviews of last night's viewing. Follow the links for full rundowns (and LOL-worthy quotes) from each:

  • Okay, we lied. Fringe isn't a comedy. But it was solid last night, thanks to Thomas Newton's resurrection and Walter Bishop's readmission.
  • Suffice it to say, everyone at Greendale celebrates religion in his or her own way, and suffice it to say, Community was hilariously un-PC.
  • A Christmas scandal rocked Parks and Recreation. Well, at least as much as any political sex scandal can possibly rock Pawnee, Indiana.
  • Julianne Moore guest-starred, the cast feuded, Liz acted like a bigger nerd than usual, and Tracy and Ken talked religion on 30 Rock.
  • Holiday episodes often bring out The Office quotes to remember, and last night was no exception. In other news, the branch is saved!
  • If you haven't seen the greatness that is Jersey Shore on MTV, you owe it to yourself to watch ... and laugh at them, not with them.

The list of mistresses linked to Tiger Woods just expanded once again. Although do you even qualify as a mistress if you're getting paid for it like Loredana Jolie?

Regardless, Tiger's list of women continues to grow amid claims from a Hollywood madam that he shelled out thousands of dollars for threesomes with hookers.

One of his favorites was Loredana Jolie, according to her pimp, Michelle Braun, who says she set the world's #1 golfer up with the blond Playboy model from Sicily.

"She's a stunning girl," Braun said. "He went out with her 4-5 times. She took part in group sex. They met up in 2006 or 2007. I'd say he paid $15,000 for her."

In addition to Loredana Jolie, Woods "had a pretty big appetite for women" in general, Braun told the New York Daily News. "He was rarely with just one girl."

"He usually wanted more. He liked three-ways."

Tiger Woods supposedly had threesomes with Loredana Jolie and others.

Braun, whose escort service recently closed due to legal troubles, claims that two of Woods' other playmates were porn star Holly Sampson and Jamie Jungers.

Both women were previously identified as Tiger Woods mistresses within the last week, but their call girl backgrounds only came to light yesterday evening.

Woods would drop $30,000-40,000 on a weekend for his liaisons, Braun said, and he would met up with women in cities where he was playing tournaments.

"He would request the college-cutie, girl-next-door look," she said. "He could go for days. He'd pay a flat rate for an evening, but that would usually be extended."

"The girls would talk about his stamina."

Guess all those marathon rounds of golf in the heat were good for something. His endurance truly is something of a marvel in terms of gossip fodder as well.
