Mistress Mania: We may have another Tiger Woods revelation on our hands! More women have come forward saying they had affairs with Jesse James. Stripper Melissa Smith tells Star Magazine she had a two-year relationship with James while he was married to actress and America's sweetheart, Sandra Bullock. Smith spilled the details of the affair, including unprotected sex, kinky requests and hook-ups in his office. And alleged mistress number three, photographer Brigitte Daguerre, tells TMZ she and James emailed and texted one another for a year, but only had sex four times before she cut it off. They met when he hired her for a West Coast Chopper photo shoot in 2008. James has not commented on either of these claims.

Goodbye 'Grey's': Katherine Heigl finally and officially announces she's leaving "Grey's Anatomy." In an Entertainment Weekly exclusive, the actress says it's her family, not her growing film career, that prompted her departure. "I started a family and it changed everything in me. It changed my desire to work full-time," Heigl said. She was scheduled to appear on this season's final five episodes but that apparently won't be happening anymore. ABC Studios released a statement saying her departure was by mutual agreement and they wish her well.

Dancing Diva: ABC will tell you she's well liked around the set, but sources tell Sun-Times columnist Bill Zwecker that the crew of  "Dancing With the Stars" hates contestant Kate Gosselin. "Kate is, without doubt, the biggest diva to appear on the show, and that's saying a lot," the show insider said. Things are so bad that the staff is thrilled to see she's doing poorly, hoping America votes her off soon.

Paula's Project?: Another week, and another potential TV project for former 'Idol' judge, Paula Abdul. This time, Abdul is in talks with NBC to host a new reality series in the world of flash mob dancing, according to Entertainment Weekly. Sources said Abdul and choreographer Kenny Ortega would set up mass dances in public locations.

Palin's Project?: Also set to host her own reality series, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin. Discovery Channel confirmed to People that Palin will headline an Alaska related reality show. Some reports say she would get as much as $1 million an episode.
