Quotable: Tiger Woods Has His Balls Under Control

“It feels good to be able to control my ball all day like this.”

Tiger Woods in response to coming in 12th at the Barclay’s tournament. He should really be careful how he uses the terms “ball,” “stroke,” and “hole in one” for the rest of eternity. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

Elin Nordegren: 8 Things That Suprised Us In Her “People” Interview

For someone who has to read the tabloids every week, yesterday’s People interview with Elin Nordegren was like Tabloid Christmas. We had been holding our breath with suspense for nine months to find out what was going through Elin’s head after she (and the world) found out her now ex-husband Tiger Woods had a secret double life as a man whore. And through the 12-page spread, I laughed and cried and learned a lot about Elin. So after the jump, eight things that surprised us about Elin. Keep reading »

Mel Gibson Allegedly Pointed Gun And Threatened To Kill Oksana, Their Baby, And Himself

Trust me, at this point I am crazy tired of writing about how nasty a dude Mel Gibson is. But this new revelation is so shocking, I had to share it. As we’ve heard the story for a while, during a fight on July 6th, Mel punched Oksana Grigorieva twice while she was holding their baby, Lucia. The alleged hits were with such force that they supposedly broke Oksana’s front teeth and gave her a concussion. But according to a source who passed Oksana’s statement on to the police, the fight got way, way, worse. After being hit, Oksana fell on the bed and Mel allegedly tried to choke her with one hand and covered her mouth with the other—while she was still holding the baby. He then allegedly took out a gun and began waving it around. He allegedly threatened to kill her, baby Lucia, Oksana’s 12-year-old son (Sascha, who was hiding in the bedroom), and then himself. Oksana then fled the house with both Lucia and Sascha. Sascha was apparently interviewed by child protective services about the incident last week. Keep reading »

Radar Posts Photo Of Oksana Grigorieva After Allegedly Being Punched By Mel Gibson

Throughout this whole Mel Gibson/Oksana Grigorieva debacle, there has been one source leaving a trail of bits of information: Radar Online. It seems like they must have an inside source here—someone in the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department? Oksana herself? A close friend?—because they were the first to break the news of several of the disgusting quotes in Mel’s 30-minute tirade. They also were the first to post several clips from the tape, which we then listened to in order to tally up the grossness. And now they have posted a photo of Oksana, taken less than 24 hours after Mel allegedly punched her twice while she was holding baby Lucia. The image shows Oksana with a swollen face, her front two teeth broken. “Oksana lost a veneer and the right front tooth was severely chipped,” a source tells them. The site also revealed the name of the dentist who fixed her teeth and says that he saw signs of “blunt force trauma.” If you want to see the image, click here. But I have to ask—has Radar gone too far here? Keep reading »

Mel Gibson’s Lawyers Claim The Tirade Tape Was Edited

Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva‘s lawyers will be heading to court this morning, as Oksana tries to get full custody of their daughter, Lucia. Oksana’s main piece of evidence, of course, is the 30-minute tape of Mel going bonkers on the phone—several clips from the tape have now been leaked online. So how does Mel’s camp plan to counter this? They say that they have proof that the tape has been tampered with and edited. See, tapes can only be used as evidence if it can be proven that they have not been altered in any way. Keep reading »

Al Gore And Laurie David Allegedly Had An Affair For Two Years

Remember when Al and Tipper Gore split up a week and a half ago, and we brainstormed a list of who Al should date next? Numero three on said list was one Laurie David (far right), the former wife of Larry David. (The two divorced in 2007, amidst rumors that Laurie had an affair with the caretaker of their summer home.) Laurie is a high-powered global warming activist who produced Al’s “An Inconvenient Truth,” and since they’re both newly single, brown-haired, and all about the environment, we thought they’d be sooooo cute together.

Turns out, they have been cute together. For the past two years. Keep reading »

Anne Hathaway Says No Thanks To Ex’s Gifts

Poor Anne Hathaway thought that once her crazy scam-artist ex-boyfriend Raffaello Follieri was out of her life, it would be the end of the drama. But just when she thought the negativity surrounding their former relationship had passed, it seems there’s one more aspect of their life together that she has to deal with. After Raffaello’s transgressions became public, Anne surrendered a few gifts he’d given her, including two Rolex watches, a pair of silver-colored earrings with “blue and clear stones,” a silver-colored chain with a cross pendant, two gold-colored rings, a five-strand pearl necklace and a Louis Vuitton box. Apparently, she had a bit of a grace period when she could have asked for the gifts back, but she must have said no thank you because the items are being going up for auction, with the sales helping to repay Follieri’s victims. I mean, would you really want to keep the gifts of any ex, let alone those of a scam artist? And you thought your break-ups were full of lingering drama. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Rachel Uchitel In Playboy?

Supposedly, Rachel Uchitel has always dreamed of posing for Playboy. Now that she’s been involved in sex scandals with two separate celebrities, Tiger Woods and David Boreanaz, it appears that she is getting her wish. According to reports, she has a Playboy photo shoot scheduled in three weeks. She won’t be baring all, but will supposedly be revealing her “backside and the topside.” I’m not quite sure what exactly that means, but I assume, as the British would say, you won’t be able to see her front bottom. Oh, and all this is after telling TMZ a while ago, “My family would have a heart attack. And I have to leave something to be desired.” Oops. [NY Daily News, Examiner] Keep reading »

Quotable: Roman Polanski Claims Unfair Treatment

“I can no longer remain silent because the United States continues to demand my extradition more to serve me on a platter to the media of the world than to pronounce a judgment concerning which an agreement was reached 33 years ago. I have had my share of dramas and joys, as we all have, and I am not going to try to ask you to pity my lot in life. I ask only to be treated fairly like anyone else.”

Roman Polanski claims he’s being treated unfairly by being confined to his Swiss chalet while awaiting possible extradition to the U.S. for a crime he committed decades ago. He also alleges that the Los Angeles County district attorney is using his case to generate publicity and win reelection. [PopEater] Keep reading »
