How much money did Farrah Abraham finally get for her sex tape with James Deen? Who “stole” Reece Witherspoon‘s brain? And why was Iron Man 3 the big winner at the box office this weekend–even though no one in the U.S. could see it?
What super personal information did Tiger Woods just post publicly on Facebook? And an exclusive first look at Ryan Gosling in The Place Beyond The Pines-plus more-in today’s Last Lap.
We guess we just never imagined an Olympian would go into sex work. Doesn’t every athlete get sponsored by Wheaties for the rest of their natural lives? We guess not, seeing as how ESPN reported today that three-time Olympic runner Suzy Favor Hamilton has admitted on Twitter that she’s also been working as an escort. Even more intriguingly, Hamilton claims she was “drawn to escorting in large part because it provided many coping mechanisms for me when I was going through a very challenging time with my marriage and my life.” Wow, the things we don’t know about stuff. Of course, we can’t pretend we don’t know a lot about celebs and sex work. Don’t worry, Suzy. You have plenty of interesting company when it comes to celeb escort scandals…

Some fathers know best, and other fathers know hookers. Some fathers play golf, and others play the field. Some dads mow the lawn, and others mow down mailboxes with their Mercedes while drinking and driving. Some fathers make plans to take their wives out for dinner, while others make plans to “take their wives out.” And then there are some dads who pretend they’re not dads at all! Think we’re kidding? We wish.
It’s safe to say that not all fathers know best. Just look at Michael Lohan, Jon Gosselin, Mel Gibson, and other guys we wouldn’t trust with a pair of scissors, not to mention a kid! So join us this Father’s Day while we count down the 15 worst pops of all, ranked by the standard unit of bad dads: the Michael Lohan. If your face is in the gallery below, you’re probably not getting a tie for Father’s Day this year.

Call us crazy, but the only thoughts we had while watching Drive last weekend were 1) how do we get Ryan Gosling to kiss us on the mouth and 2) Do you think he’ll let us borrow that jacket? He would, right? He seems like a nice guy. Now we find that, not only did the Drive trailer baffle at least one audience member, but it also inspired some meat-related crime! Meat-related crime against Tiger Woods!
In a sad attempt to be a real human being and a real hero, Tiger Woods hot dog hurler Brandon Kelly apparently chucked said wiener at the golfer during the Frys.com Open, telling police later, “I threw the hot dog toward Tiger Woods because I was inspired by the movie Drive. As soon as the movie ended, I thought to myself, Ã¢â‚¬ËœI have to do something courageous and epic. I have to throw a hot dog on the green in front of Tiger.’” Wow,Ã‚Â we must have been in the bathroom for that scene. Watching Ryan hurl a brat in slow motion at a professional golfer would have been the only thing that could have made that movie better.
Relax this post is strictly PG. Tiger Woods was the target of a flying hot dog on a Californian golf course yesterday, that’s all! The incident went down at the Trys.com Open in San Martin, while Tiger was concentrating on trying to putt a shot. It was at that moment that a fan — who was apparently inebriated, according to officials –Ã‚Â yelled “Tiger” and threw the dog straight at him! Of course, security was all over him like a rash afterwards. But we have the dude to thank for one of the best quotes ever. Tiger, post Hot Dog Gate, said, “When I looked up, the hot dog was already in the air.” No further comment needed.
Look, we’re not huge fans of Tiger Woods. He’s a dog, in our opinion, and his personal indiscretions, while wildly overexposed in the media, were certainly not something to ignore. But the thing is, while the guy majorly f—d up his family life and his marriage to Elin Nordegren (who has proven to be an awesome, strong , take no-s— lady) he didn’t, y’know, go all Chris Brown and beat her up. He did the responsible thing in what was a terrible situation: He issued a heartfelt apology and then got divorced so he could dick around, free of any additional, familial consequence. So no, we don’t pity him, but we just saw the headline “Tiger Woods’ Girlfriend Made Crayon Drawings For Him As A Child” and felt really dirty and even a little bad for Woods. Because even though the guy used his fame for sex, this just makes him seem creepy.
Woods has been quietly dating Alyse Lahti Johnston, a 22-year-old student, since January, and has known Johnston since she was a kid because her step-father works at IMG, the agency that represents Woods. While there is a 13-year gap between the two, and they met when Johnston was a child, is it really necessary to mention that she made him crayon drawings? Unless we found out that said drawings were still prominently on display in Woods’ home, or Johnston is still making crayon drawings for him, this is just what kids do. They make stuff and give it to people. No, they don’t usually end up dating the guy who works with their dad, but still. We feel gross even defending Woods here, but we think that’s just because when you compare him to Brown or, say, Charlie Sheen, his indiscretions seem positively innocent. It’s possible that once a cheater, always a cheater, and he may never change or be a “good” guy, but we don’t need to make him sound predatory while we’re at it.

Thanks a lot, Tiger Woods. The golfing creeper has once again gone and ruined EVERYTHING (er, we’re exaggerating a bit, but still) but stopping ex-mistress Rachel Uchitel‘s planned Playboy spread. First the guy shatters the illusion that all pro-athletes are G-rated family men and now he’s ruining the fantasies of guys with club promoter fetishes. How rude.
Tiger supposedly but the kibosh on Rachel’s T&A pics by threatening to end the multi-million dollar settlement he currently forks over to her. She was set to make around $300,000 from the photos, so really that’s like comparing diamonds to gravel, in money-gemology terms. The mag apparently wanted Rachel to discuss her relationship with Tiger, who got his lawyers all over that situation faster than you can say Elin Nordegren.
Says a completely trustworthy anonymous source, “The magazine wanted to mention Rachel’s relationship with Tiger, but it would have jeopardized the deal she already made with him. They refused to give her complete control of the cover so she could make sure Tiger wasn’t mentioned.”
So there you have it people! Further proof that Tiger Woods loves ruining everything for everyone. At least VH1 is here to help – you can watch Rachel on Celebrity Rehab starting October 13.
He’s not wasting any time is he? Now that Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren are divorced, it’s time to get on with business for him. You know…to start pursuing all his other interests. Play the field while playing some golf, so to speak.
Ergo, Tiger has splurged on a new bachelor pad in downtown Manhattan. And he’s already moved in, as of last weekend. It seems he’s making himself quite at home too, because apparently, witnesses have already spotted him “introducing himself as the new neighbor.” Yes Tiger, like you need an introduction. Wonder who he was introducing himself to? And was she a blond, brunette or redhead?
Did you hear that? That’s the sound of Rachel Uchitel rushing to New York.
Elin Nordegren has had a rough year but remained silent throughout her entire complicated separation from Tiger Woods. Now that their divorce is final, though, she has granted People Magazine an exclusive interview which she says will be her first and only public discussion of her personal life.
Nordegren tells People “I have been through the stages of disbelief and shock, to anger and ultimately grief over the loss of the family I so badly wanted for my children.” But what about the details we’ve been dying to know about? How was she so obvlivious to all of Tiger’s cheating? What about the Thanksgiving car accident? Details, girlfriend! Well, she delivers, albeit very diplomatically.
Of the cheating, she explains “I’m so embarrassed that I never suspected – not a one. For the past 3 1/2 years, when all this was going on, I was home a lot more with pregnancies, then the children and my school.” (Nordegren has been in college working toward a degree in physchology.) And hitting Tiger’s car with a golf club? “There was never any violence inside or outside our home,” she says. “The speculation that I would have used a golf club to hit him is just truly ridiculous.” The magazine and full interview come out on Friday.
And while she doesn’t get into specifics, Nordegren just has this to say about her settlement “Money can’t buy happiness or put my family back together.” But it can get you the hell out of Orlando, girl. Take that money and run.
