The Most Over-Exposed Celebs of 2009?

Before Tiger, there was Kate Gosselin. (AP) It seems like only yesterday we were being force-fed a steady diet of incremental Jon & Kate Gosselin news. But that all changed the day after Thanksgiving when a wee-hours car crash kicked off an ongoing Tiger Woods feeding frenzy. Today, I'm asking you to send in your nominations for the most over-covered, over-hyped, over-exposed celebrities of 2009. Remember, only a few short weeks back Tiger was (we assume) quietly going about his business (sordid though it may have been) and we were awash with Gosselin news, Lohan family drama, Tila Tequila's TMI tweets, Adam Lambert's sexuality, Levi Johnston's 15-minute fame grab, Brad Pitt's pirate beard, Kanye West vs. Taylor Swift, Chris Brown's fall from grace, Madonna's new squeeze... In short: There was life before Tiger. Fill out the form below to submit your nominees for the most over-hyped celebs of 2009....

Jennifer Aniston not cooking up a cookbook

Jennifer Aniston, keeping her kitchen witchery to herself. (Warner Bros.) Just as we were getting used to the idea of Gwyneth Paltrow -- a lithe, insouciant version of Martha Stewart -- dispensing her homey ideas on everything from shopping to how best to refashion Thanksgiving leftovers, Jennifer Aniston is reportedly contemplating her own foray into domestic diva territory. Except that she's not. According to a story published in the National Enquirer, Aniston plans to team up with pal Jamie Oliver to create a "range" of cookbooks. But, in a statement to Gossip Cop, Aniston's rep called the story "completely false." Sorry, serviceable jokes about vanilla cookies and humble pie. You'll just have to wait. --- Forget Aniston, these three celebrity recipe tomes will have you cooking in no time flat: 1. Spain...: A Culinary Road Trip Gwyneth Paltrow and Mario Batali eat their way through Spain. This companion book...

Caption This: Bette's queen-sized reaction

If we can possibly tear ourselves away from Tiger, I ask that we turn our collective attention to one Bette Midler, aka the Divine Miss M, who Monday pulled the face you see below upon meeting Queen Elizabeth. We can understand how that might discombobulate one, but what's with the manicure hands pose and why is that man petting her? That's where you come in. Submit your own captions for the photo in the comment section below. The best will be elevated to a position of prominence here in the blog. Photo: Getty Images...

Ambulance takes woman from Tiger Woods's home; Diane Sawyer leaving 'GMA' this week

This image taken from video shows an unidentified woman being brought from Tiger Woods's home to Health Central hospital in Ocoee, Fla. (AP) Updated: 1:02 p.m. ET -- Tiger Woods's mother-in-law in stable condition after being hospitalized with stomach pain. Updated: 9:15 a.m. ET Tiger Beat: On the same day Tiger Woods's mother-in-law arrived from Sweden, a "middle-aged woman" was reportedly transported from Woods's Orlando home to Health Central Hospital, the same hospital Woods himself was taken to on the Friday following Thanksgiving. No details have been released, but one report has the patient listed as requiring "advanced life support." Local Orlando TV station WESH is reporting that Woods's wife, Elin Nordegren, was seen leaving the hospital this morning. Meanwhile, more details about Woods's state the night of his accident and alleged affairs continue to surface. See the Rumor Mill, below, for the latest in scuttle. Headlines: Diane Sawyer...

Should Tiger sit down with Oprah?

Woods and wife Elin Nordegren in 2006. (AP) According to unconfirmed reports, so we're dealing in the realm of the speculative here, Oprah Winfrey has reached out her image-mending arm to Tiger Woods. Not only has she offered herself up as a confidante, but O is also angling to get Tiger -- and wife Elin Nordegren -- to sit down on her couch for some face time with America. And while Oprah's couch is probably a better choice than the other networks angling for an interview -- ESPN, HBO and the Golf Channel -- would a tightly-scripted Oprah moment do much to repair Tiger's image? Let's look at a few other TV confessions and how the confessors fared: October 2009: David Letterman admits to affairs with staffers: Letterman stole the thunder from attempted extortionist Robert J. Halderman, admitting his affair with staffer Stephanie Burkitt on his own late-night show....
