Contrary to reports, Tiger Woods’ alleged mistress Rachel Uchitel is not carrying a little cub.
Star magazine this week announced, “Tiger’s worst fear … Rachel pregnant!” The magazine goes on to claim that Uchitel, who has been spotted near Woods’ yacht “Privacy” in Palm Beach, “has told friends she could be carrying his baby!”
Only it's not true. She was direct in her denial to GossipCop.com, saying point blank, “I’m not pregnant.”
Which makes the magazine’s following claim more ridiculous: “Tiger and Rachel still love each other and it’s definitely possible they’ll meet up or go away together soon,” the magazine quoted a source as saying. “Especially if she’s carrying his baby.”
Goldie Hawn wasn’t rooting for A-Rod
Looks like Kate Hudson’s mom Goldie Hawn apparently felt “all along,” according to Us Weekly, that the slugger Alex Rodriguez wasn’t the right guy for her daughter.
“Goldie didn't think Kate should be with him,” a source told Us Weekly. “She believes once men cheat, they always cheat.” (This would be a reference to talk that Rodriguez split with wife Cynthia in 2008 after a rumored affair with Madonna.)
As for what will become of Hudson and A-Rod now that they’ve split: the Us insider says “They'll stay friends.”

Although for months there have been rumors that Spears was ready to head down the aisle again, a Dec. 9 outing has people talking. On that day, Spears was spotted in several Beverly Hills jewelry stores, looking at engagement rings — all by herself.
“Britney is ready to marry Jason,” says a friend of the 28-year-old, who reportedly has been reading bridal magazines and is hoping for a big, traditional wedding in the summer of 2010 — even though Jason has yet to pop the question. “She wants to be with him 24/7,” reports In Touch.
Determined to get Trawick to settle down with her, Spears has also begun making plans for married life, according to the magazine, and is urging Jason to cut back on his career. An agent at WME, Trawick represented Spears long before the two of them began to date, and his client list has included Hilary Duff and Paris Hilton.
“His career is demanding,” the friend explains to the magazine. “He can be on the phone or on his computer at any hour, day or night, and Britney finds that she’s competing with his work for attention.”
The friend says that since Spears makes enough money to support both of them, she doesn’t see why Jason has to work as much as he does. “Britney doesn’t want to marry a workaholic,” the friend told In Touch.
