Ivanka Trump is blasting a report that claimed she and her siblings staged an intervention, asking father Donald Trump to back off his public bashing of President Obama.
The Trump heiress took to Twitter today to call out the N.Y. Daily News:
“I totally respect @realDonaldTrump’s opinions & right to articulate them, which is what I would’ve told @nydailynews if they’d call me to fact check their false story,” she wrote.
The Trump patriarch has taken a ton of heat – and kept late night talk show hosts in business – thanks to his repeated diatribes throughout the 2012 electionMore >
Since the days of George H.W. Bush, Presidents have spared the lives of a couple fortunate turkeys every year around Thanksgiving.
This year, for example, President Obama will pardon two birds named Cobbler and Gobbler.The West Wing – Bartlet Pardons Turkey
But PETA is actually against this act, as chairman Ingrid Newkirk addressed the Leader of the Free World today and said:
“It makes light of the mass slaughter of some 46 million gentle, intelligent birds and portrays the United States’ president as being in some sort of business partnership with the turkey-killingMore >
President Barack Obama pardoned a turkey named Liberty at the White House today. But, as you know, most birds are not so lucky, even when politicians are nearby.
Just a few years back, in fact, one committed a major party fowl.
In this classic video from Thanksgiving 2008, then-Governor Pain pardoned a turkey and gave an interview with a local news station … during which things went awry.
Watch what happens in the background in the clip below:
It’s full-on bedlam in the Republican presidential primary race as Herman Cain flat-out accused Rick Perry of starting a smear campaign against him and fueling the sexual harassment allegations against Cain that have surfaced.
Cain, a Georgia businessman who has surged to the lead in many polls, claims Texas Gov. Perry is orchestrating a covert assault to destroy his presidential candidacy.
He made the accusations personally yesterday.
As he sought to contain the fallout that consumed his campaign for a third day, Cain shifted his blame from the news media to Perry, the one-timeMore >
The death of Moammar Gadhafi set off a string of celebrations throughout Libya, concerns among the international community … and absurd comments on Twitter.
An instant, harmless classic: “Lunch with Gadhafi, cancelled.” – Steve Martin.
On Saturday, though, actor Orlando Jones went in a different direction:
“Libyan Rebels kill Gaddafi, if American liberals want respect they better stop listening to Aretha & kill Sarah Palin (:” wrote the star … drawing a harsh rebuke.
Palin has not responded on Twitter to Jones’ remarks, but supporters have.

She claims to be the perfect homemaker, but a new book calls into question Martha Stewart as a perfect mother. And the author of this book? Martha’s daughter, Alexis.
The 46-year old slams her famous parent in “Whateverland: Learning to Live Here,” writing of her childhood: “If I didn’t do something perfectly, I had to do it again. I grew up with a glue gun pointed at my head.”
Labeling the domestic television goddess as “not interesting in being kid-friendly,” Alexis goes into detail about Martha’s Christmas present philosophy (“”She used to make me wrap my own presents…”) andMore >
A tell-all new book about former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin claims that she had a one-night stand with former NBA star Glen Rice back in 1987.
Is that true? Does it matter? The answer to both is highly debatable. Is this the greatest rumor of all time? To that, we might have to answer yes.
At the time, she was single and working at a TV station as a sports reporter; Rice was a college basketball star visiting Alaska for a tournament.
Glen Rice scored 18,336 points in his career and won a title with the 2000 L.A. Lakers. If he scored with Sarah Palin, however, he wins the title of MostMore >
Residents of Malta have say Brangelina is nice. That’s putting it mildly.
As Brad Pitt shoots his latest film in the southern European country, his partner, UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie, has been making an even greater impact with various humanitarian visits in the region.
Having met with Syrian refugees in Turkey last week, Jolie visited two centers housing asylum-seekers in Malta and on the island of Lampedusa.
Over 1,500 refugees have fled the violence from war-embattled Libya to Malta (via overcrowded boats) this year, with lives being lost in transit.
“Malta has saved manyMore >
Sarah Palin has given us so many memorable moments over the years.
Undeniably, her every move is scrutinized and picked apart like no other politician in history. But just as undeniably, she brings these things upon herself.
With Alaska releasing thousands of emails from Sarah Palin’s brief stint as governor, we can only imagine what revelations lie in store in those reams of paper, and where they will rank on the list of Sarah Palin’s greatest hits.
Sarah Palin uses crib notes on her hand in February 2010.

Kim Kardashian is nothing if not forgiving.
Putting aside her problems with Cosmopolitan after they splashed her pic on the cover of the Turkish version, which offended the Armenian-American celebrity, Kim is not letting her “amazing relationship” with the magazine end.
In fact, she’s doing a brand new shoot for it!
Kim was irate at Cosmo for not getting permission to run the controversial cover, which hit newsstands in Turkey this month and hit close to home for her.
The country committed genocide against Armenians people nearly 100 years ago and still refuse to acknowledge this.More >
Happy Thanksgiving to all from The Hollywood Gossip!
What would this holiday be without family, food, football and reflection upon the things we appreciate most … in the case of THG, that means some of the bird-brained celebs we’ve had the privilege of covering in the past year.
Without further ado, THG’s Top 10 Turkeys of ’10 …
We may rename this the Spencer Pratt Thanksgiving Turkey Award.

Justin “R-Rated” Rego has left The Bachelorette. We all know why.
After his cheating ways were exposed on Monday’s episode in Turkey, The Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky read Rego the riot act after speaking with a woman named Jessica Spillas, who claimed to be Rego’s girlfriend in Toronto.
In response, he issued a vague comment denying nothing:
“The producers of The Bachelorette took this experience that was supposed to be an amazing moment that I will never forget, and made it into a living hell for me,” the repulsive Rated R says in a statement posted on his Facebook page.
