The word on the street, or more accurately on the Daily Beast, is that Tiger Woods is putting up serious dough to get his wife Elin Nordegren to stay with him. The prenup that she signed in 2004 stated that she would get $20 million after 10 years of marriage. But, according to a source, a lawyer involved in the negotiations, Tiger has upped that to $75 million if she stays with him for seven years. And he also has allegedly offered her $5 million up front. These are huge amounts of money, and it’s really hard to imagine someone saying, “Yeah, I don’t want $75 million,” especially since this couple has two children together and, until recently, seemed happy together. But if Elin did walk out the door, I would have to give her props for sticking up for herself, à la Jenny Sanford. And then, she’d be free to play the field herself. Here’s who we think she should look into dating next. Keep reading »
When my high school boyfriend cheated on me, I found out the other girl’s Instant Messenger screen name and “confronted” her online. (Not the most mature move, I know. But give me a break! I had just turned 17.) You know what this bitch had the audacity to say to me? “I’ve seen a picture of you! No wonder he cheated.” Owww.
Sadly, that dopey logic is not confined to teenage soccer players who give hickeys to other girls’ boyfriends; it has cycled over and over and over in my mind as this alleged Tiger Woods affair has played out. Surely you, like me, have heard numerous friends or significant others say something to the effect of, “How could he have cheated on his wife? She’s so gorgeous!” Yes, Elin Nordegren is a freaking blonde-haired Swedish former model and her turd husband allegedly still cheated on her. What I want to know is why we insist a woman’s beauty—which is highly subjective!—is some kind of barometer—which is highly shallow!—of whether or not her hubby will cheat. Keep reading »
Uh oh. It just became an even worse week to be named “Tiger Woods.” A 24-year-old L.A. cocktail waitress named Jaimee Grubbs, who appeared on trashy VH1 dating show “Tool Academy,” claims she has also boinked the very married golf pro. According to a story on UsMagazine.com, Grubbs claims she and Woods had a two-and-a-half year-long relationship and engaged in 20 sexual encounters. Grubbs also claims to possess 300 text messages from Woods and a condemning voicemail in which Woods says his wife, Elin Nordegren, has discovered their affair. Eeek! But once again: take these rumors with a grain of salt, innocent until proven guilty, fame-hungry bitches, etc., etc. Still, we’ve got to say, it would seem that between Grubbs and Rachel Uchitel, the woman whom The National Enquirer accused of being “the other woman,” Tiger has a thing for party girls, doesn’t he?

New gossip suggests Tiger Woods and his wife, Elin Nordegren, were squabbling right before his strange car accident early Friday morning. Woods apparently stormed out of his Florida mansion after 2 a.m, shouting at his wife, “You’ve ruined our Thanksgiving! Are you happy now?” according to RadarOnline.com.
As neither Woods nor Nordegren are speaking to the press, we’re taking any and all new insights with a major grain of salt. But this latest accusation of Thanksgiving-ruination would fit with the prevailing conspiracy theory that Nordegren didn’t use one of Tiger’s clubs to rescue him from a car crash in front of their apartment, like she told police.

What was Tiger Woods—married man, father of two—doing behind the wheel of his SUV at 2:25 a.m. on Friday night? Police are unclear what the billionaire pro-golfer was up to before he crashed into a fire hydrant and a tree in his Florida gated community, but they classified the incident as a mere traffic accident. Could it be that 33-year-old Woods had a late-night case of the munchies? Nay, TMZ is spreading the rumor that his wife, 28-year-old Swedish model Elin Nordegren confronted her husband about an alleged affair, scratched his face, and then as he fled his house, came after his SUV with a golf club. It sounds just crazy enough to be true! [TMZ] Keep reading »
