Best of web: Sarah Palin's secrets revealed...
Intimate secrets of Sarah Palin's marriage emerged yesterday in the tell-all book by a former aide.
They include the revelation the former Alaskan governor and her husband Todd "don't talk", she walks around their home in an open bathrobe and his laughter over a doctored nude photograph.
According to the book, Palin would often walk around the house with her robe open, Indian tabloid Mid-Day reported.
A draft manuscript of Frank Bailey's In Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of Our Tumultuous Years, has been leaked.
It claims she wrote fake letters to newspapers in the name of supporters praising her "leadership and ethics".
Palin confided in Bailey about personal family matters, writing in one e-mail, "We're not like normal couples, Frank. We don't talk."
Bailey also alleges that Todd accessed her e-mails without her knowledge, and if he saw something that worried him, he would call Bailey with his concerns.
Bailey claims Palin drafted letters to newspapers during her run for governor and sent them in under supporters' names.
Bailey reveals a doctored pornographic photograph sent to Palin's campaign which showed the candidate's head on top of a nude body was greeted with laughter by her husband.
"He laughed in his quiet Todd-way and said, 'Well she walks around the house with her robe open and with all those windows we have, well, you know."
"In the book Bailey added, "Her image is micro-managed and she has no interest in reflecting the truth when it might tarnish, even a smidgeon, her gloss."
Palin is scheduled to speak at the India Today Conclave in New Delhi on March 19.
Star’s loaded .22 air gun goes off in dressing room
England football ace and Chelsea star Ashley Cole shot and wounded a 21-year-old student with a high-powered rifle at Chelsea's training ground, according to the News of the World tabloid.
The star was "larking" with his deadly .22 air gun in the dressing room last Sunday and fired at work placement boy Tom Cowan from just 5ft.
According to the tabloid police were not called, but an injured Tom was patched up by team medics and given two days off.
An inside source was quoted by the News of the World as saying: "It's truly inconceivable that a Premier League footballer could bring a gun to the training ground.
"But Ashley pulled the rifle from a box and started larking about with it in the changing room, not realising it was loaded. It ended up pointed at Tom just five feet away.
"Then the gun went off with a loud pop and Tom screamed as this lead pellet hit him in the side. It went through his clothing and into his flesh. He was bleeding profusely and it soaked into his training top.
"He was in agony and seemed to go into shock as he steadied himself and sat down on one of the benches."
Jordan and Amir in love bout
TV star and socialite Jordan and boxing champ Amir Khan groped and flirted at a pre-Oscars party yesterday, just hours after she admitted: "I'm on a manhunt," The News of the World reported.
The pair whispered sweet nothings and got touchy-feely for more than an hour.
Their lust for each other was so obvious a pal of Khan's told the tabloid.
The encounter came after Jordan revealed she has offered Alex Reid £250,000 to divorce, is on the lookout for husband No3, would use sperm from a gay friend to have a fourth.
The glamour model, 32, and Khan, 24, have been flirting for months by text. Reid's jealousy over their closeness was a factor in the year-old marriage ending last month.
Last December she partied with the World Super-Lightweight Champion in Las Vegas after he fought there.
Britain's youngest grandparents break silence
The couple set to be Britain's youngest grandparents last night spoke out in the News of the World - desperate to hit back at gossips attacking their pregnant 14-year-old daughter.
Shem Davies and onetime girlfriend Kelly John, both 29, admit it was a shock to find schoolgirl Tia was having a baby at the same age they were when they were expecting her.
Shem and Kelly reject the tide of abuse that greeted news of family history repeating itself. And they tell how they plan to help Tia and her boyfriend Jordan Williams, just 15, whose baby is due in August.
Wiping away tears, Kelly told us: "My worst nightmare has always been that Tia would repeat my mistake and get pregnant young.
"I was always telling her, 'Don't do what I did because you need to live your life.' So when I found she was in exactly the same situation I was really shocked.
"I felt the colour drain from my face and all I could do was cry. It's like it's happening to me all over again - the agony I went through as a schoolgirl mum."
Tia and boyfriend Jordan both go to Ynysawdre school near Bridgend, South Wales - the same school Kelly attended while she was pregnant.
Kelly - who lives with Tia, three other children from a broken marriage and boyfriend Carl Zaccardelli - was six months pregnant by the time her mother Ceri discovered she and Shem were having underage sex.
And seven weeks ago, in an eerie replay, Kelly learned the truth about Tia's pregnancy.
Shem was equally shocked by the news. "I'd no idea Tia was having sex," he said. "But then I think back to how I was at that age. I could have yelled at Tia or given Jordan a rollicking, but what's the point? Instead I simply told Tia the truth - how, at 14, I was just too young to have a baby, and how it might turn out too much for Jordan too."
Incredibly, when Tia's baby is born, there will be six generations of the family alive including a great-great-great- grandma of 92 and a one-year-old uncle.
