Reliable Source Gossip Final Four: A Cinderella Champ
The 2010 Reliable Source bracket -- like the NCAA basketball picks -- was full of fouls, hometown heroes and last-minute upsets. The Gossip Final Four, according to our wildly unscientific voting process, came down to a match between our own Cinderella (a party crasher herself, come to think of it) and the couple who launched a thousand security checkpoints.
The Party Crashers division: The Salahis
Michaele and Tareq easily trumped fellow State Dinner crasher Carlos Allen, Sen. Scott Brown, and those overexposed tattoo models. The closest match came from the Tea Party, which was defeated by the blonde in the red sari.
The Bad Ideas division: Gilbert Arenas
Rielle's GQ spread? Levi in Playgirl? So old media. Tiger's texts were a strong contender for volume and vulgarity, but Gilbert Arenas's four guns in the locker room triumphed as the worst bad idea.
The Short Timers division: Sarah Palin
Desiree Rogers faded fast (again). Jim Zorn and Tai Shan are out of sight and mind, and Conan is no match for the woman who's out of office . . . yet still everywhere.
The Hot Stuff division: Chelsea's wedding
In a hotly contested battle, player Peter Orszag was no match for sizzling Latina Justice Sonia Sotomayor or ex-First Daughter Chelsea Clinton's upcoming wedding. The summer nuptials beat out the salsa moves by a rose.
Final Match-Up: Palin vs. Wedding
In the semis, Salahis (no jail time yet) beat Gilbert's community service; the very private Chelsea (child of a former president and a secretary of state) beats the reality-show ex-governor.
Our Cinderella Champ
Chelsea's dream wedding. All those rumors last summer turned out to be false, but the announced nups -- dress, locale, who gets invited, who's left out -- got the most votes as 2010's (upset!) gossip favorite.
