(CNN) - Sarah Palin is putting her self-entitled "boobgate" to rest.
Despite the intense speculation on some blogs, the former Republican vice presidential candidate told Fox News she has not had breast implants and attributed such chatter to "bored, idle bloggers and reporters with nothing else to talk about."
"I think some of those folks too need to perhaps grab a shovel, go down to the gulf, volunteer to help, clean up and save a well or something," Palin added.
A photo of Palin at the Belmont Stakes last weekend prompted some to speculate the former Alaska governor was the beneficiary of surgical enhancement. Palin's silence over the reports on her usual sounding boards of Facebook and Twitter only added to the speculation.
The reports came in an otherwise good political week for Palin, when several of the candidates she endorsed won primary contests across the country. Still, the talk in the blogosphere surrounded reports of Palin's potential plastic surgery.
"No I have not had implants, I can't believe we are even talking about this," Palin told Fox New's Greta Van Susteren in an interview that aired Friday.
"A report like that is about as real and truthful as reports that [my husband] Todd and I are divorcing, or that I bought a place in the Hamptons, or that [my son] Trigg is not my own child," she added.
"To be judged on or to be talked about on appearance – say chest size – it makes me wear layers, it makes me have to waste time figuring out what am I going to wear so that nobody will look at an area that I don't need them to look at," Palin also said.
But Palin isn't the first politician to deal with speculation of visits to the plastic surgeon. In 2004, then-presidential candidate John Kerry was accused of getting botox injections after the conservative Drudge Report posted before and after photos that appeared to show the Massachusetts senator's forehead with considerable less lines. In 2008, the Drudge Report also posted photos leading some to suggest Vice President Joe Biden was the recipient of a face lift. Both men denied those rumors.
