David Letterman apologized (kind of) Wednesday for his jokes about Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and her family, and extended an invite for them to come on his show.

Well, the former Republican Vice Presidential nominee, who seems intent on making People magazine headlines at every opportunity, issued a reply Thursday:

"The Palins have no intention of providing a ratings boost for David Letterman by appearing on his show," Palin family spokeswoman Meg Stapleton says. Zinnng.

"Plus, it would be wise to keep Willow away from David Letterman."

So ... Letterman is a pedophile now, according to the Palin spokesperson? We thought we weren't allowed to joke about underage girls ... not that anyone was.

Seriously, no one is saying the jokes weren't inappropriate, but the Palins are clearly just using Letterman, and by extension their own daughter, as an opportunity to rally support for ... something. Makes us wonder if they own NBC stock.

In case you missed it, David Letterman jabbed at the Palin family after Sarah and Todd visited NYC and took in a Yankees game with 14-year-old daughter, Willow.

The host cracked that the worst part of the trip was "keeping Eliot Spitzer away" from her daughter, and that Alex Rodriguez knocked her up in the 7th inning.

The Palins denounced Letterman on Facebook, calling his comments "sexually perverted" and saying "Any 'jokes' about raping my 14-year-old are despicable."

Letterman took eight minutes on Wednesday night's show to explain the jokes, clarifying that he was referring to 18-year-old Bristol Palin (who did get knocked up when she was a minor, incidentally) and admitting his material was in bad taste.

"These are not jokes made about her 14-year-old daughter. I would never make jokes about raping or having sex of any description with a 14-year-old girl," he said.

He continued to emphasize: "Am I guilty of poor taste? Yes. Did I suggest that it was okay for her 14-year-old daughter to be having promiscuous sex? No."

He called the jokes, "borderline ... but again, made in an act of desperation to get cheap laughs, which is what I've been doing for the last 30 years."

Which side are you on in this war of words?

Britney Spears and K-Fed have reached a new agreement on custody - and now Brit has the kids more than 50 percent of the time - at least during her tour.

Yay! More time for them to get acclimated to new dad Jason Trawick!

Just kidding. Mostly.

But seriously, lawyers for Britney and Kevin have filed docs with the family law Commissioner Scott Gordon, stating they have reached a new arrangement.

Nice to see these two getting along better these days. Even though things didn't work out for them, it's good that they can share the little ones amicably.

A Pregnant Britney Spears

Vintage Britney Spears and Kevin Federline, circa 2006. Such hotness.

During June, July and August, Britney Spears will have physical custody of Jayden James and Sean Preston more than 50 percent of the time, which is awesome.

For both! More time for K-Fed to get naked with Victoria Prince!

Just kidding. No we're not.

The lawyers submitted a calendar outlining which parent gets to chill with Sean Preston and Jayden James on which day during the forthcoming period. 

Before the change, Britney had the kids 50 percent of the time, and the 50/50 split is scheduled to go back into effect once the Circus tour is over.

The state of California is in danger of going bankrupt, while tensions remain high between fans of the Los Angeles Dodgers and fans of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

But, not to worry Golden Staters, Tami Farrell is on the way!

In an interview with The Today Show this morning, the woman who has taken over as Miss California - following the firing of Carrie Prejean - said she'd try her best to bring the state together.

"I was a little hesitant to be stepping into the line of fire, I'll be honest," she said. "There's been divisive questions. I've been brought in to try and unify our state. I'm not being silenced for my beliefs, but I just think that this isn't a battle that anybody can win, so I'm going to do my best to just refocus it on some of the other aspects."

Meanwhile, pageant director Keith Lewis sat alongside Farrell and commented on Prejean's dismissal.

He said the narrow-minded, immature beauty queen missed "tens and tens and tens" of appearances, while insisting that she wasn't dethroned for her political views.

"I think it's time for us to move back this political platform that she was fired because of her beliefs, because that dog just won't hunt," Lewis said.

As our staff tried to calmly explain earlier, Lewis compared this decision to the laying off an employee at any job.

"I think if you tell your boss, 'I'm not gonna do the job, I'm gonna do whatever I want, you can't tell me what I’m gonna do,' I think that you expect that your boss is gonna say to you, You know what? You're probably not supposed to be in this job anymore.

"It was just very difficult for us, and we tried to meet halfway, and it was obvious that wasn't going to happen. Finally, there was a point when the organization really had to stand up and say, You know what? It's time for us to move on and get back to the business of beauty."

How did Carrie react to her firing? She mentioned America, misunderstood the concept of "freedom of speech" and referenced God four times in just a few sentences.

One day after French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy told PETA that she no longer wears real fur, Michelle Obama made her own animal-friendly announcement.

"Mrs. Obama does not wear fur," deputy press secretary Semonti Mustaphi said.

Obama and Bruni-Sarkozy - who have met twice in recent months - are both widely known as celebrity fashion icons as well as prominent political wives.

PETA pushed Carla Bruni-Sarkozy - who was photographed wearing what appeared to be real fur - in particular to donate her coats to the homeless.

"I do not wear, buy or own fur or animal skin other than leather or skin of animals raised for feeding purposes," she wrote to PETA, adding, "I am not a vegetarian, and I don't find it illogical to wear skins of animals whose meat is eaten."

Could a Carla Bruni nude PETA campaign be in the works? Here's hoping!

Michelle O.

FUR REAL: Don't expect Michelle or Carla to don mink coats anytime soon.

Unlike Carla, Michelle wasn't targeted by PETA, which says the wife of Barack Obama is "known to be fur-free," according to PETA's media coordinator, Amanda Schinke.

Still, the mother of Malia and Sasha followed suit with the former supermodel, releasing a statement that fur will never be part of the First Lady's famous wardrobe.

"For Michelle Obama, respecting animals is part of the social progress that she and her husband are working so hard to promote," PETA Senior V.P. Dan Mathews said.

"By officially rejecting fur, these two style icons will make people around the world see fur for what it is: old-fashioned and cruel."

Tony Romo is has won zero career playoff games, but dude is dating Jessica Simpson, so the Dallas Cowboys QB has scored one major "trophy" at least.

Entertainment Tonight caught up with the NFL star to talk about life with girlfriend Jessica Simpson, from their perfect date night to pregnancy rumors!

As for rumors Jessica might be pregnant, Tony Romo says there's "not that I know of," but "I'm sure you guys'll tell me something new soon enough."

As for the perfect date night with Jessica Simpson?

"Probably get a little bite to eat and probably watch a football game," he said. "That's our perfect evening. It's exciting for both of us because I found someone I get to hang with, and she embraces the game and wants to see our team do well.

"It's great to have someone like that."

Tony spoke to ET at a photo shoot for the sportswear company Starter, and he remarked on having to get into "model mode" to shoot the new ad campaign.

"I don't think I'll ever be a model; I don't have any Zoolander poses," he says. "But we'll definitely get out here and have some fun with the Starter stuff."

"As an athlete you know you want to feel comfortable when you're moving around, and have stuff on you that feels natural, and they do a really good job."

For something that feels anything but natural, here are Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson pictures from a recent date night. Looks like barrels of fun (not):

  • Kind of Rough
  • What a Fun Night Out

Across the nations, millions of Usher fans are crying:

We told you so!

Tameka Picture

The singer was lambasted for his poor judgment when he married Tameka Foster; now, almost two years later, the couple is getting a divorce.

“The Grammy winner has been living apart from his wife for nearly a year after almost two years of marriage,” an insider told In Touch Weekly. “Usher’s primary concern is for his children. He is a great father and just wants to do what is right for them.”

Usher and Tameka are parents to a pair of toddlers: Usher Raymond V, 18 months; and Naviyd, 6 months.

While this is sad news, at least it clears Usher of any infidelity charges. The singer has been spotted recently with Grace Miguel. With abs like his, no shock that it doesn't take long to move on!

Relive this relationship below. Click on the following photos of Usher and Foster to enlarge each one...

Plenty of stars can throw out the first pitch at a Dodgers game, but to actually suit up and play a full game is another story. Carrie Underwood did the latter at the 19th Celebrity Softball Challenge at Nashville's Greer Stadium on Wednesday.

The singer (who played for the Grand Ole Opry team) got in the swing of things (har har) with other country stars like Vince Gill and Montgomery Gentry, and looks like she's ready to go all "Before He Cheats" on a pitch in the photo below.

Alex Rodriguez may want to take some pointers ...

Carrie Underwood envisions Chace Crawford's face on an incoming pitch.

Emotions ran high at the softball game, but all in the name of a good cause. Carrie and others helped raise funds for the cancer research charity City of Hope.

Always nice to see one of our favorite celebs in action, be it on the field or on stage belting out hits of a different sort. How lucky is Mike Fisher to get to round the bases with this girl? Sorry, no more baseball double entendre, we promise.

Looking gorgeous as ever, former Hills star Lauren Conrad hosted the launch of her new book L.A. Candy at Thompson Hotel on Wednesday in Beverly Hills.

The retired reality TV star hopes to her her book adapted for the small screen: "It’s one of my hopes," said Conrad, 23, of a televised version of Candy.

"We're going to start working on that when I get back from my book tour."

Here's the star at last night's event ...

As much as she complained about being on The Hills towards the end, would Lauren Conrad be open to a return - or field new offers for reality TV forays?

"I asked not to hear them," she said. "I said, 'Don't tell me anything.' So, problem solved, and I got to enjoy time away. But my two months is up now."

She's also not giving up her fashion collection: "I have my line at Kohl's but I'm also working on putting back together my original line," she told E! News.

One thing she won't be doing? Checking out Kristin Cavallari's debut on The Hills. "I probably won't watch it," Conrad said. "I'm not a huge TV person."

Somewhat ironic from a person made famous by TV, but more power to her. Click to enlarge more Lauren Conrad pictures from last night's book event ...

Kourtesy of Kim Kardashian, readers are about to get a sneak peek at the former sex tape star's spread in Ocean Magazine.

On her official website, Kim kommunicates with fans and says the issue wil hit newsstands in two weeks.

The less-than-flattering photos were taken in Newport Beach, Kalifornia, as Kardashian dons a series of unusual outfits. Most of them accentuate her large breasts, however, so who are we to complain?!?

Klick on the Kim Kardashian pictures above to enlarge images of this kute and kurvy model.

Bret Michaels may not be Liza Minnelli, but when you prick him - or lower a piece of scenery down on his head - the man still bleeds.

A few days after the hilarious accident that broke his nose, the rocker is speaking out against the awards show and its seeming indifference to his injuries.

On his website, Michaels wrote: "I feel had this incident happened to Liza Minnelli, Dolly Parton or Elton John, the Tonys would have at least issued a letter of concern."

In the statement, the Poison lead singer claims he got dazed and bloodied during the incident, but "the full extent of his injuries remains to be seen until all x-rays are back."

The same can be said for his future on reality TV. What promiscuous, insecure, drunken suitors will wanna sleep with a washed-up rock star with a crooked nose? (Answer: all of them.)

Following an accident at the Tony Awards, Bret Michaels looks more busted than the women that chase his crotch on Rock of Love.
