After its relentless reporting blew the lid off the John Edwards-Rielle Hunter cheating scandal, the National Enquirer is in the running for a Pulitzer Prize.

Does it deserve to be nominated - or even win it?

Laugh if you want, but the Enquirer’s coverage of Edwards' double life is being considered for investigative reporting and national news reporting awards.

The story of his affair and love child with Rielle Hunter were ignored, dismissed, and ignored again until finally being vindicated by mainstream media.

The significance of the story, the New York Times notes, is the fact that Democratic Party came dangerously close to nominating this man for the presidency.

This would have been a disgrace of unparalleled proportions.

Yet only in the National Enquirer was the truth about John Edwards’ recklessness, and the grim reality behind his doting-husband facade, exposed.

Rielle Hunter Baby: Frances Quinn Hunter

The National Enquirer did us a favor exposing this loser.

The mainstream media's hesitation to run the story might be defended as the high ground, a means to a less sex-obsessed culture, which is somewhat noble.

But the celebrity gossip machine will grind on regardless.

If Americans aren’t reading about Edwards and Rielle Hunter, they’ll just read about Tiger Woods and Rachel Uchitel (also broken by the Enquirer, natch).

Better the former than the latter, right? Woods' apology made clear that we may be interested, but it's his business and he will talk only when he wants.

Tiger may have opened himself up to incredible scrutiny and criticism with his inappropriate actions, but to a certain point it's his problem to deal with.

Not so with John Edwards. Athletes and talk show hosts don’t work for us, but politicians' dalliances tend to interfere with, and often corrupt, their jobs.

Not all affairs produce corruption, and we don’t have to know every sin committed. But with Edwards, imagine if we found out only after it was too late?

We're just saying.

Tiger Woods' mea culpa Friday was a remarkable event in the sense that the world basically stopped for 15 minutes to hear him admit banging waitresses.

But it was far from the first such press conference or televised admission that an embattled, married, cheating celebrity has had to make in recent years.

Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, current South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, David Letterman and Kobe Bryant can all relate thanks to similar situations.

Perhaps Tiger, who's already back in rehab, can take solace in that fact ... and in this slow jam remix of apology with those of his aforementioned brethren:

Follow the jump for another Tiger Woods apology speech remix, this time with his words spliced together to reflect what the golfer was really thinking ...

If Tiger Woods has taught us anything, it's that a short game can go a long way with the ladies.

Nick Jonas appeared to have heeded this lesson, as he took rumored girlfriend on a golfing date yesterday.

Buzz about Jonas and Gomez rekindling their relationship started to circulate last month, as the female singer accompanied Nick and his new band on a couple tour stops.

When Jonas was later asked about Selena, he didn't confirm the pair were dating... but he didn't exactly deny it, either.

Now that the two have been spotted on the golf course - discussing club selection and water traps... if you know what we mean! - expect the rumor mill to go into hyper drive this week. As long as Nick and Selena are happy, we're happy...

Ali Fedotowsky hated Vienna Girardi so hard on The Bachelor. Heck, her biggest complaint about star Jake Pavelka was that he didn't get rid of Vienna.

But Ali, whose real world job was so demanding that she had to leave the show, but who's been doing interviews 24/7 since, says she's over that now.

"When I was in the house, did I think Jake and Vienna could have a long-term relationship? No, I didn't think that at all," Ali Fedotowsky recalled to ET.

"I was confused about him picking me and her. But now that I've had a chance to see them interact, I think they could have a lasting relationship."

Despite their clashes on the show, Ali says she has no hard feelings about Vienna Girardi: "I do think she is a decent person." Wow! That's progress!

Jake and Ali on The Bachelor

Ali Fedotowsky took herself out of the running on The Bachelor. Where does she stand on his final two women now that she's buried the hatchet with Vienna Girardi?

Of Tenley Molzahn, Ali says she is "innocent, sweet, nice and much more conservative. Vienna, by contrast, is "liberal, outgoing, likes to have fun and be silly."

As for whether Ali regrets leaving to be the next Bachelorette for work - especially after Jake confessed that she was the frontrunner before voluntarily bailing?

"When I saw Jake at the Women Tell All, I felt a lot of regret," she says.

"It was sad ... Sometimes when I am sitting at my desk at work, I think I made the right choice. What I can say is that if I have to choose between love and work again, I might chose love. I have to start focusing on that more."

Your tagline for her season of The Bachelorette, ladies and gents. She's been downplaying speculation so far, but bank on it. Anyway, regarding next week:

Who should Jake pick on The Bachelor season finale?

The Price of Beauty? Something like that. Jessica Simpson posted a bizarre photo of herself wearing a thick face mask on Twitter Saturday morning.

Some people need their accounts revoked. We propose nominating one each month, and calling it the Tila Tequila Award (she's in her own league).

Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson

"The Price Of Beauty :)" Jessica Simpson Twittered, referring to her globe-trotting VH1 show, which premieres on March 15. Yes, it is a real show.

"Thanks La Mer for the upper and lower zone radiant mask," she added, referring to the pricey Creme De La Mer Radiant Facial, which costs $320.

Yes, she paid $320 to look like this. You sure you want to collaborate on this show, Billy Corgan? Your alt-rock reputation is being diminished here ...

Yikes.

Filming the show "changed me completely," she said. "I haven't always had an inner confidence and I haven't always looked at my reflection and loved it."

Okay, having better self-esteem is always a good thing. We just don't need to see the progress every minute of every day. But carry on Jessica. Carry on.

Throughout his professional wrestling career, Ric Flair had a saying: To be the man, you've got to beat the man.

His wife of three months apparently took those words literally: Jacqueline Beems was arrested last night for allegedly assaulting the former WCW and WWE great.

Jacqueline Beems Mug Shot

Several media outlets say the police were called to the couple's Charlotte residence last night, just prior to midnight. The official police report states Fair suffered minor injuries and refused treatment at the scene.

No weapons were used in the alleged attack and Beems was released from jail earlier this afternoon.

The wrestler - who often refers to himself as a "limousine ridin', jet flying, kiss stealin', wheelin' dealin', son of a gun" - has been married four times.

Lindsay Lohan has come clean. Mostly.

The troubled star recently told The Sun (UK) all about her past cocaine use, claiming her estranged drug addict father got her curious about the stuff.

"I was only aware of cocaine because of my dad," she said. "I was terrified, but I tried it. I was stubborn, stupid, and wanted to see what it was like."

Police found Lohan, now 23, to be in possession of cocaine in two separate DUI incidents in 2007. She has been to rehab three times and is real thin.

"It's not something I ever want to do again," she says of cocaine binging. "It made me feel like sh!t. It became uninteresting to me. I'm hyper anyway and I have that kind of personality so I don't need something like that."

A NEW LEAF: Our little girl is so much more grown up and mature.

In 2007, after her father, Michael Lohan, began speaking negatively about her in the press, Lohan says she hit "rock bottom." Sure, give or take a year.

That's when Lindsay Lohan claims that she began rampantly abusing "alcohol, cocaine and other mind-altering substances" to mask her many problems.

"There was a point when I didn't know how to say no and was trying to please everyone. I was doing pop and making films. I thought I could go out, have fun, then go on set and record. I ran myself down and lost track of who I was."

While she still drinks - "I know my limits," she dubiously claims - she says often "there's no reason to because I don't want to feel like sh!t in the morning."

This is true, especially when one actually has a job.

2006: The downward spiral commences.

Through it all, the alleged celebrity hoarder claims she's in a better place now, and that she's learned from her mistakes - some of which terrify her still.

She still cringes when looking back on one night when she took the sleeping aid Ambien and climbed into a bathtub. Don't try that one at home, kids!

"I'd run a bath and fallen asleep on the floor. The bath overflowed. When I woke up, I was so scared. I called my therapist and said, 'Can I just go somewhere for a month?'" she says. "'I'm around bad people and need to take care of myself.'"

"I was terrified, but I put myself in."

That's what Calum Best said ... UP TOP!

Dear YouTube: Please do not remove the following video.

It's the official music video for "When I Look at You," the latest single from Miley Cyrus. Off the soundtrack for The Last Song, the tune plays like a real-life look into Miley's relationship with Liam Hemsworth.

The two characters get together in the movie and, though Miley is yet to admit it publicly, the two actors have gotten together in real life.

How serious is their relationship? Sources say Cyrus and Hemsworth might get engaged. But we're getting ahead of ourselves. For now, just enjoy the video:

They are probably the two biggest unknowns on American Idol.

Paige Miles and Michelle Delamor have both advanced to the semifinal round and will perform live tomorrow night on Fox, along with 10 other women. But you'd hardly have expected that if you watched the show's early auditions.

Neither of the singers were featured very often, but that means little once the fan voting begins. Remember: A year ago at this time, no one had heard much from Kris Allen or Allison Iraheta, either.

So while it may be difficult to assess at the moment, we're still asking readers to compare Paige and Michelle below and then vote in our poll:

  • Michelle Delamor Pic
  • Paige Miles Photo

Who will go farther on American Idol?

 

Once you let your voice be heard above, sound off on Tyler Grady vs. John Park.
