“I think the only surprise in it, quite frankly, is that anybody would be surprised. If you’re a good-looking guy and young and healthy, the notion that there would be something else going on, well, marriage is just a convenience. It’s very nice for raising kids, but the notion that monogamy lasts forever is a wish!”

Y’all, the Tiger Woods
drama is getting a whole lot juicier! After admitting to “transgressions” yesterday on his website, Tiger’s got one alleged mistress set to hold a news conference later today while new details are coming out about a possible multimillion dollar payout to his wife, Elin Nordegren. The Daily Beast
is reporting that, as of yesterday evening, Elin “has been offered a $5 million payment immediately if she agrees to stay—and her prenuptial agreement is being revised to give her up to an additional $55 million.” That would bring her total payout if she stays with Tiger for seven more years to a whopping $80 million. Basically, she needs to be “a dutiful wife in showing up with him at social events and in public as if they were still the perfect couple, and sign a nondisclosure form that will prevent her from ever telling her story.” The Daily Beast says: “even if she lasts only two more years, she’ll still walk away with nearly twice what she was entitled to under the original prenup.” So, let’s get this straight: It’s OK for straight people to turn their marriages into business arrangements, but if you’re gay, you better not even think
about marrying for love. Who is threatening the sanctity of marriage more, hmm? [via The Daily Beast

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 »
, you are so busted. Us Weekly
has an exclusive interview with Woods’ alleged former mistress, Jaimee Grubbs
, in this week’s issue, and along with it they have released a voicemail
Woods left for Grubbs, begging her to cover his ass. In the voicemail (which you can hear above), Woods says:
“Hey, it’s Tiger. I need you to do me a huge favor. Can you please take your name off your phone? My wife went through my phone and may be calling you. So if you can, please take your name off that. Just have it as a number on the voicemail. You got to do this for me. Huge. Quickly. Bye.”

I am not the “other woman.” I am “another woman.” How do these two differ you ask? Well, if I were the other woman, the guy I’m “dating” would be in a committed, monogamous relationship with a woman and I’d be the one he was hiding and sneaking around with. But that is not the case at all. He is not in a committed relationship. He does not have a girlfriend. He just happens to be in a non-committal, non-monogamous relationship with me and another woman. The kicker is that I and the other woman know each other. She and I are not friends at all. We don’t travel in the same circles. Oddly enough, he is the one who introduced us to each other. Yes, I know what you are thinking right now. “What! This girl is crazy, off her rocker to be in this situation!” But please, before you judge let me explain how this situation came about.

“I’ve been very honest with him from the get-go. I think women are beautiful. I’ve had a lot of fun with women, and I’m not ashamed of it. The problem is that I also love a well-endowed man. But just because I enjoy women doesn’t mean I’m allowed to have affairs in my relationship. I learned through talking with my therapist that it is still cheating even if it’s with girls, so there is a rule there.”

Who among us hasn’t had some explaining to do after sending a sexy email to the wrong person? Most of the time your unlucky recipient laughs it off and everything’s cool. But that’s not what happened to John, Lisa and everyone at Cornell University who now (accidentally!) knows about their affair.
John is a married tech guy at Cornell. Lisa is his married mistress at the Cornell Business School. And at 2 p.m. on Friday afternoon, when John accidentally included another email address on a reply back to Lisa, everyone at Cornell received a sexy, sexy email exchange that the pair had been writing back-and-forth since 8:30 a.m. By 3 o’clock, the whole dirty email exchange was posted online and now the whole world knows what kind of panties Lisa wore on Friday … and much more. I wish I could feel bad for these people, but haven’t they ever heard of iChat?
After the jump, the dirtiest, most cringe-worthy bits from John and Lisa’s email blunder: Keep reading »
Like the David Letterman Debacle wasn’t bad enough, now we have the story of Steve Phillips, the ESPN analyst, who had an affair with a 22-year-old coworker. Unfortunately for the 46-year-old sports dude and married father of four, his latest dalliance (and apparently there’ve been many before her) turned into a bunny boiler when he broke it off with her.
Brooke Hundley, the jilted junior, went ballistic, repeatedly emailing and calling Phillips’ long-suffering wife, tricking their 16-year-old son into an online flirtation, and then finally showing up at the family home, scaring the crap out of everyone.
Lucky for Hundley, the Phillips declined to press charges, but her reputation, both professionally and personally, is shot. (His too. He’s since been fired from ESPN and has entered a treatment facility.) Obviously, being some cad’s side action is always a sucker’s game, but if you’re going to do it, do it right. Keep reading »
How would you feel if your boyfriend or husband had a virtual girlfriend? I don’t mean what if he had a relationship with someone, as in a real person; I’m talking about a digitally animated girlfriend “brought to life” through Nintendo DS. There’s a new, popular dating sims (or dating simulation) video game on the market called Love Plus and, according to Boing Boing, an article posted on a Japanese tech site in September reported that several women had complained that their family lives were disrupted by their husbands’ addiction to the game. Boing Boing spoke with one San Francisco couple, Koh and Yurie, who say that Koh’s one-week addiction to his virtual girlfriend on Love Plus was “gross,” but basically harmless. Keep reading »
