Sarah Palin shows off her make-up-free face, but it's her naked ring finger that's creating buzz

Sarah Palin thought she’d beat the tabloids to the punch when she posted on her Facebook page Monday night photos of herself – sweaty and without makeup – after a workout in Alaska.

“Feel bad for the poor paparazzi hounding outside my truck this morning hoping to capture a tabloid ‘exclusive’ of me coming out of Bikram Hot Yoga,” the former Alaska governor and VP candidate turned reality TV star wrote. “How about we take away their ‘exclusive’ and I’ll give you the photos first, for free! Yup, here’s what I looked like sans makeup, drowning in sweat when the camera rolled; looking much like a sheepdog, I’d say. No one said workouts were glamorous!”

But now it’s her naked wedding-ring finger – missing what http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/sarah-palin-steps-family-brawl-wedding-ring-article-1.1941290 called a “meaningful jewelry piece” – that has people buzzing, especially because the photos are the first sighting of anyone named Palin since reports over the weekend that the Wasilla, Alaska, family was involved in a brawl at a Sept. 6 party in Anchorage.

But before anyone goes looking for another round of divorce headlines (which Palin and her husband, Todd, have always denied) consider what Palin told PEOPLE in an expansive at-home interview in October 2010: “I very rarely wear jewelry and I have my $35 wedding ring, from Hawaii, that I bought myself on the beach, that I’ve been wearing for all these years. But even that, I just don’t put it on sometimes. So we were getting such a hard time about, ‘There’s another picture of her not wearing her wedding ring!’ and I point out, I’m not wearing any jewelry at all in that picture.”

At the time, she also said she takes off her ring “to lift weights and go kickboxing.”

It looks like she can now add “hot yoga” to that list.
