With 2009 drawing to a close, The Hollywood Gossip staff looks back on this wild year, naming finalists for our prestigious, 3rd Annual Celebrity of the Year award.

It's time for us to pay tribute to the special celebrities who made this year the most memorable for THG and for celebrity gossip fans across the nation and world.

These stars have given us their best, their worst, their off-the-wall antics and, in the case of today's finalist, probably the messiest reality TV divorce of all-time.

Recently, our kountdown kontinued with all those krazy, kurvy Kardashians in the #4 spot. Now, it's on to Celebrity of the Year Finalist #3: Jon Gosselin!

Jon Gosselin is #1

Jon thinks he should be higher, but he'll have to settle for #3.

It's hard to believe that it was only six months ago that Jon Gosselin was known as your run-of-the-mill reality show father of eight who loved ATVs, Ed Hardy t-shirts, Bluetooths, etc. His wife was painful but they made it work.

Until they didn't.

Jon was caught cheating with teacher pal Deanna Hummel, setting in motion an epic train wreck as his marriage and reality show simultaneously unraveled.

Free from the grating banshee that is Kate, Jon proceeded to get with Hailey Glassman ... and Kate Major, and Stephanie Santoro. Often at the same time.

He befriended Michael Lohan, hosted pool parties in Vegas, tried to start his own clothing line and earned a place in the upper echelon of global douchebags.

When his wild partying and nightly interviews on The Insider caused TLC to cut him out and rename their show Kate Plus 8, he proceeded to pull the plug on the show, citing child exploitation. They countersued for breach of contract.

What he'll try to pull next is anyone's guess, but a run like he had is worthy of top three status in 2009. Here's a little photo tribute to the infamous Jon ...

Teresa Heinz, the wife of Senator John Kerry, has been diagnosed with breast cancer.

In light of the controversial new guidelines from the U.S. Preventative Service Task Force - which advise women under 50 to actually NOT undergo mammograms - Heinz wrote in to The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette today:

"The cancer was detected at an early stage thanks to a mammogram and the work of a remarkable physician who insisted on investigating beyond what the mammogram could show. I have had two operations and my prognosis for a full recovery is good.

"As any woman can attest, mammograms can be nerve racking. And as the government's task force pointed out, they can produce misleading results and anxiety. But Ive' been personally reminded that they can also produce something else: a lifesaving early diagnosis."

We agree with Heinz's stance and we wish her a speedy, full recovery. Send in your get well wishes today!

Most of us get into the Christmas spirit with egg nog, festive decorations around our homes, red and green sweaters and maybe the occasional Santa hat.

Lady Gaga, on the other hand ...

There's little else we really have to add to this photo. It's probably no surprise to her fans, who are well accustomed to the unique star's "fashion" sense.

After all, this is an artist who can and will pull off just about anything. Even those Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumors seemed to increase her popularity.

So rather than paying tribute to the holiday season with Santa-themed attire, she opted for a reindeer look. We have to say, we kinda dig the antlers ...

Vanessa Hudgens might have a nice body, but the actress wants to keep it to herself. And Zac Efron, of course.

The actress is suing the owners of www.moejackson.com because the website has posted her most recent nude photos - described in the suit as "self-portrait photographs" - and has refused to take them down.

"The photos were obtained by unknown methods and posted on the internet by an unknown person without Hudgens' knowledge or consent," reads the lawsuit's documents.

Clothes On

Oddly, TMZ reports Hudgens has registered the naked pics with the U.S. Copyright Office. Her lawyers are seeking monetary compensation for damages from Butter Media, the company that owns the domain.

We're all for justice, Vanessa, but you do realize this lawsuit will draw attention to your naked pictures on that website, don't you? Perhaps that's your Christmas present to young male fans around the world.

Christmas is a time for eggnog, family gatherings, turkey dinners and presents under the tree.

It's also a time for some of our favorite young celebrities to send wishes to their fans.

The Jonas Brothers sent out a family Christmas card earlier this week - and now Harry Potter star Emma Watson has a message for her followers, as well. Check it out below:

THG echoes every one of these sentiments. We hope you and your loved ones have a safe, happy holiday that's filled with gifts, hugs and online celebrity gossip reading!

He's officially divorced.

He owes a lot in child support payments.

His most recent girlfriend wants nothing to do with him.

For all these reasons and more, Jon Gosselin is having a holiday season to forget. According to The National Enquirer, this is exactly what he may be trying to do... forever.

“Jon appears to be at the end of his rope. He feels that he has nothing left to live for,” a friend told the tabloid. “Jon feels betrayed by anyone he’s ever trusted. He’s drowning in a sea of debt, yet he blames everyone except himself for his problems."

That anger is allegedly directed at TLC, the network that made Gosselin all his money in the first place.

Sad Jon

“Jon says TLC is still preventing him from pursuing other high-paying offers as a ‘vendetta’ for pulling the plug on Jon & Kate Plus 8. He claims they’re out to ruin him,” the insider said.

The unemployed douchebag owes $90,000 to Hailey Glassman, along with $13,000 per month in child support to Kate Gosselin. His anonymous pal says Jon may soon get evicted from his NYC apartment.

If that happens, it will at least give him more time to stalk Hailey and new boyfriend Damon Feldman. There's something to live for, Jon!

You won't believe this, but Tila Tequila recently wrote something on Twitter that wasn't true. We'll give you a few moments to get over the shock...

Earlier this week, the troubled reality star said she had agreed to be a surrogate mom for her brother and typed the words: "I'm pregnant."

Now, however, she tells Life & Style that she's isn't exactly knocked up, but:

"I'm about to be. When I tweeted that, I figured there's not enough space in the 140 characters. [I meant] I'm going to give him a Christmas present that's going to change his life."

You might be better served just going with a PlayStation 3, Tila.

So Messed Up

Tequila says she plans on getting impregnated and then handing the child off to her sibling.

"I don't have time to take care of a real baby of my own," she said. "I feel I am very ready to experience the whole pregnancy process, but without having to actually have the baby as mine."

If Tila actually goes through with this, it will certainly be a kind, warm-hearted gesture. But she'll forgive us if we're skeptical.

In June, she Tweeted about another pregnancy, only to delete the post and take everything back days later.

Best of luck waking up next to this trainwreck each morning, Casey Johnson!

Brody Jenner and Jayde Nicole just split. But it's a bro he misses most.

According to reports, Brody is more upset about his "breakup" with former best friend Doug Reinhardt than his Playmate of the Year girlfriend of nearly 15 months.

Hills Gang

Last night, Brody was at Guys & Dolls in W. Hollywood with a new girl on his arm, but looked sad when he didn’t interact with his former pal, who was also there.

“Brody arrived at 11:15 with two guy friends,” a witness at Guys & Dolls said. “He was joined less than 30 minutes later by a blonde, very attractive woman.”

“She was with him most of the night. It was clear this wasn’t their first meeting,” the source said, but Brody, who endured a similar falling out with former BFF Spencer Pratt, had (platonic) eyes for someone else entirely: Doug Reinhardt.

Brody Jenner with Doug Reinhardt back in the good ol' days.

Doug, along with his notorious girlfriend Paris Hilton, had their own table and were joined by about 10 friends - none of whom was The Hills star - witnesses say.

“Doug did not speak to Brody, and you could see Brody was distracted by Doug being there," reports a spy. "He seemed very sad that they weren’t speaking.”

“Everyone stayed until close ... Brody left hand-in-hand with the blond.”

Well, that's good at least.

Brody Jenner recently said he hasn’t seen much of his baseball bud since Doug reconciled with the ho-tel heiress/socialite and insists their friendship is over.

“We used to be best friends, now I never see him. Some people just get so involved in relationships they lose their friends," he lamented. "Partners come and go, but friends are there for you always. I’m done. Paris has taken him away.”

One would think Kim Kardashian would hate the cold weather.

After all, it leaves her with less of an opportunity to don a bikini.

But in her latest blog entry, the reality TV star writes: I think winter clothes are so adorable and these slouchy hats are to die for.

Do you agree with these assessment? Check out Kim in the aforementioned garb below and then vote in our poll:

  • Slouchy Hat

Kim's hat is...

In an ironic and tragic example of life imitating art, the late Brittany Murphy's character in the horror film Deadline appears lying lifeless in her bathtub.

The actress' sudden death on Sunday, when she was found in the bathroom and could not be revived, sent the DVD rental company Redbox scrambling.

For obvious reasons, efforts to remove this particularly disturbing image from the DVD cover and other promotional materials are underway nationwide ...

Brittany Murphy stars in the horror film Deadline.

Murphy collapsed in the bathroom Sunday morning and, after unsuccessful attempts by family and paramedics to revive her, was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Suddenly, the DVD cover seemed a lot less appropriate.

"We are removing the box art images from our displays," Redbox spokeswoman Laura Dihel said. "We will continue to carry her film, but not featuring the box art."

A much funnier and less morbid example of promotional material pulled in light of current events? Tiger Woods Accenture ads. You wanna talk about irony ...
