We know, we know. It’s hard to keep all of Tiger Woods’ women straight. But some of his mistresses have more in common that just having slept with the same top golfer. Jamie Jungers and Jaimee Grubbs both have small piercings underneath their eyes. Apparently, the facial studs are called “micro-dermal anchoring” in the piercing business, or, more informally, the “anti-eyebrow.” Basically, an L-shaped stud is inserted into the area above the cheekbone, and a diamond is inserted into the protruding end. (Gag.) Since the scandal, one piercer reports that he hasn’t seen an uptick in requests — not like “what Christy Turlington and Naomi Campbell did for the navel piercing, or what Janet Jackson did for the nipple,” he offers. If the look takes off, maybe they’ll start calling it “The Wood”? [W] Keep reading »

In proof that there is life after a big ol’ sex scandal, for the past few weeks, rumors have been swirling that a certain former New York governor with a taste for expensive call girls (that’s you, Eliot Spitzer) will be returning to politics and running for New York comptroller in 2010. But now, one of his frenemies says that if he runs, she’ll run, too. Kristin Davis is the madam who provided Spitzer with (advice columnist?) Ashley Dupre and other high-end prostitutes for years, to the tune of about $80,000. But when he got caught by wiretap arranging a liaison, Davis felt Spitzer was quick to tell the authorities her name. And she’s still pissed about it, after spending four months in Rikers. “I like to wreak a little havoc here and there. It’s ludicrous that Spitzer would even consider running for public office again, and even more ludicrous that New Yorkers would vote for him. But if he’s going to run, then so will I,” she said on her website. “His abuse of some of the women I arranged for him to spend time with raises serious questions about his character … [My platform] highlights the inequities and sexism in our criminal justice system which penalizes women, minorities and poor people while wealthy, connected white men like Eliot Spitzer evade justice.” Who do you think would win in the showdown—Spitzer or Davis? I’m secretly hoping that Heidi Fleiss becomes Davis’ campaign manager. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
Six months after an uber-creepy stalker filmed her walking around her hotel room nakey and posted the videos on the interwebs, Erin Andrews faced the guy behind the camera in court. His name is Michael David Barrett and he’s a 47-year-old insurance agent from Illinois who never met Andrews in person, but somehow developed an obsession with her. He admitted in court that he tracked Andrews in three different cities, rigging the peepholes on her hotel room doors in order to be able to make the vids. Insanely, this offense only carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison, though experts think Barrett will get more like two. Andrews is, of course, hoping for the maximum. “I have nightmares. I walk in crowds and I see him in my peripheral vision. When I’m alone in my house, I have fears that he’s going to walk inside and hurt me,” she said. “I don’t know him. I’ve never met him. I don’t know why he chose me. But I hope he never sees the light of day again.” We hear you, Erin. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
It’s 2009, bitches, and women are kicking ass and taking names. We’re outpacing men in colleges, running our own companies, and buying our own homes. But there’s one area in which we girls are sorely lacking: sex scandals. Yes, sex scandals. Poor LeAnn Rimes is one of the only high-profile ladies who has been caught cheating and she’s up against infidelity heavyweights like David Letterman, South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, and, of course, Tiger Woods. Keep reading »
Since seeing “The Blind Side” a few weeks ago, I have totally become an expert on college football recruiting and NCAA violations. So when the New York Times did a piece on the University of Tennessee’s football recruitment, for once in my life, I actually understood what they were talking about. Tennessee is in hot water for using sexy college co-ed “hostesses” to lure high school athletes to their school, and the NCAA is investigating to see how many violations they’ve made, since their coach Lane Kiffin has been bragging about it. The NCAA has super strict rules on what is appropriate for luring in athletes. Whoring out women to attract innocent high school jocks is not within that category. [NY Times] Keep reading »
Ashley Dupre deserves some credit for turning her notoriety as Eliot Spitzer’s favorite lady of the night into a full-scale career. First, there was her pop song “What We Want,” which blogs hailed as “not half bad.” Then came her reality TV show deal, and her turn as a model at NY Fashion Week. Now, Ashley is showing off her writing chops. The New York Post has given her a weekly column called “Ask Ashley,” which reminds us of the genius advice column with Spencer Pratt that appeared in Radar for the few issues before it folded. Not only did Ashley rock glasses and a button-down shirt in her author photo—no more bikinis for this classy girl. But, uh, Ashley’s advice is actually shockingly astute. Read the excerpts after the jump. Keep reading »
While reading this week’s New York Magazine, the article “The Yadda Yadda Conundrum” stuck out at me. “Yadda, yadda, yadda” is an expression, of course, made famous in an episode of “Seinfeld”—it’s what Elaine says when glossing over a major part of a story. Here’s why the phrase is relevant today: David Letterman‘s intern-banging scandal dropped out of the news pretty quickly. Why? Because he told his whole story, or at least enough of it to satisfy us. Tiger Woods, on the other hand, gave a public apology with so many holes in it that it begged the question, “What exactly did you do?” Each missing detail just fed our need to know more, which has led to the whole uncovering of so many salacious details, it’s hard to keep track of them anymore.

Because Us Weekly loves you (or maybe because it hates you), this week’s issue includes a selection of the text messages sent back-and-forth between Tiger Woods and Jaimee Grubbs in the past six months. While “I will wear you out” remains the poetic apex of the interaction, there are quite a few doozies in there. After the jump, the words that take the “sexy” out of “sexting,” plus the rules they didn’t follow that you should. Keep reading »
Tiger Beat: Jaimee Grubbs Was Also Doing George Clooney? He Met Holly Sampson At His Bachelor Party?
I don’t know about you guys, but I am starting to feel serious Tiger Woods fatigue. Could there stop being a new outrageously juicy revelation every hour? I need some time to digest. Anyway, here is the latest.
- Jaimee Grubbs, the reality TV wannabe who says she was sleeping with Tiger for almost three years, might have had another famous dude’s number on speed dial. George Clooney, who also has a thing for cocktail waitresses. The two met at the Stone Rose Lounge in L.A., where Jaimee works, and were often seen together. Oh, and Jamie appeared on “Extra” last night to apologize to Elin. Video above. Who knew a human being could say “like” so many times a minute? [Newser]
