Tiger Woods Is Taking Time Off From Golf

Tiger Woods released another statement on his website, saying he is sorry for his “infidelity” and is taking an “indefinite break” from golf.

I think this is the best thing Tiger can do, at least until everything dies down. These alleged mistresses are becoming famous (for the moment).

The PGA Tour Commissioner told Entertainment Tonight they supported Tiger’s decision and would welcome him back to the golf circuit when he was ready. Nike said the same thing.

AT&T said they supported Tiger’s decision while they were “evaluating” their “ongoing relationship with him.”

All things considered, the reaction could have been far worse. It’s just unfortunate that Tiger’s reputation and legacy have to take such a hit over something that was entirely avoidable.

You can read Tiger’s entire statement after the break; click on the continue reading link below.

Tiger Woods Gets Order Blocking Release Of Nude Photos And Videos

I suspect this is a hint of what’s to come… Tiger Woods got an order in England prohibiting the publication of pictures or videos of himself nude.

Tiger Woods’ lawyers sent a letter to multiple UK papers and blogs, stating the court order “prevents the publication of private and confidential information contained in the Order…. this Order is not to be taken as any admission that any such photographs exist, and in the event they do exist they may have been fabricated, altered, manipulated and/or changed to create the false appearance and impression that they are nude photographs of our client.”

The court order also covers any possible videos. It blocks the publication of “any photographs, footage or images taken or obtained of the claimant [Tiger] naked or any naked parts of the claimant’s [Tiger's] body or of him involved in any sexual activity.”

The lawyer’s letter says, “Our client is not aware of any images and in any event he would not have consented to any such photographs being taken nor would he have consented to the dissemination or exploitation of the same.”

Okay… so we’re supposed to believe Tiger decided to hire attorneys to block the publication of hypothetical nude pictures and videos of himself (since the letter says the order is not “an admission” that they exist)?

In the United States, it’s a lot harder to block the publication of things, so I say brace yourself…

Do you think there are nude photos and videos out there or is Tiger just taking precautions against someone trying to sell doctored photos?

Miley Cyrus Song Removed From Grammy Nomination List

People” is reporting that Miley Cyrus’s song “The Climb” has been pulled from list of Grammy nominations. The song was up for best song written for a soundtrack. The song was penned by Jessi Alexander and Jon Mabe.

A source inside the Cyrus camp says the sudden swap was hardly a surprise and that the song was submitted in the category by mistake. The source says “The Climb” was withdrawn from the competition a day later.

Grammy officials didn’t elaborate on why it was removed or what the “mixup” was with it being the wrong category. Hopefully a statement will be released to clear things up further.

Miley was seen arriving at her hotel in Paris today. The girl sure has a lot of patterns going on these photos! Wow! She seems to be rocking the animal prints quite a bit lately. What do you think of her outfit?

Jon Gosselin Skips Court Hearing Today

Jon Gosselin was due to be in court today for a hearing in the lawsuit that TLC filed against him – but he failed to show. TLC’s Edward Sabin didn’t have anything kind to say in court about the dad.

Sabin said his star’s extracurricular activities (ranging from Vegas pool parties with bikini-clad babes to promoting his Hollywood Rebel clothing line) was not only “embarrassing” but “it made the show look bad and was like “pouring oil on the fire” of the bad publicity engufling the once family-friendly reality show.

Jon’s attorney had said that his client planned to be there. So far there’s no word on why he didn’t show. Perhaps he was watching his DVR’ed recording of Barbara Walters’ 10 Most Fascinating People of 2009, since it featured soon to be ex-wife Kate? Doubtful, I’m sure. lol

The matter will now go before a jury. The trial date has been set for April 19. Jon is countersuing, claiming that TLC:

took advantage of him and made him sign an overly restrictive contract, harmed his reputation and violated Pennsylvania’s child labor laws.

I must admit that I’m curious how this will play out. I wonder if Jon will end up having to pay TLC a chunk of money?

Pamela Bach Asks For Fans’ Help For David Hasselhoff

This has to be one of the saddest (and bizarre) things I’ve seen. At least, lately. Pamela Bach, David Hasselhoff’s ex-wife and someone who was recently arrested for suspicion of DUI herself, has issued a public plea to David’s fans:

“The despair-feeling hopeless and unable to believe that things can ever change with David’s alcoholism over the years-has affected our whole family,” she says. “We want our lives to be different, but nothing we have done has brought about change.

“We ask David’s fans, supporters and handlers to take swift action to save this wonderful man’s life,” she says. “I have always been close to my daughters to comfort and support them as well as always being there for David. We will be forever hurt from this cruel disease. I am grateful for our two daughters, who have been incredibly brave, strong and protective souls.”

Hayley, one of David’s teenage daughters, called 911 right after Thanksgiving saying her father kept falling down when he stood up.

I feel TERRIBLE for David’s daughters. Both of their parents seems to be struggling mightily right now, and it has to be affecting them.

Do you think this is an honest attempt on Pamela’s part to get help for David or an effort to deflect attention from her own problems? Or maybe, sadly, both?

Billy Joel’s and Christie Brinkley’s Statement About Alexa Ray

Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley have issued a joint statement in response to rumors that have been flying about since Alexa Ray’s hospitalization. Here it is:

Every parent can imagine the pain and anguish we face as parents of a daughter who is working to recover from the dangerous actions she took while suffering a devastating heartbreak. As much as we hate dignifying tabloid stories with a response, we feel we must set the record straight to protect our family.

The story that ran in the New York Post on December 8th, and has been subsequently spread across the Internet, is filled with vicious lies and attempts to smear our character and that of our beloved daughter. We ask the public and legitimate media outlets to please “consider the source” and to not further exacerbate our daughter’s situation by repeating and legitimizing these false reports.

With much appreciation,
Billy Joel & Christie Brinkley

Hopefully they will now be able to take some time out of the public eye to allow Alexa Ray to heal.

Tiger Woods’ Alleged Affair Count Is Up To 13

Can we even keep up anymore? I lost count of the women who have come forward in this Tiger Woods cheating scandal but now we’re being told that #13 has come forward! THIRTEEN? It’s being alleged that he had a fairly long relationship with yet another porn star!

had a lengthy affair with porn star Joslyn James (real name: Veronica Siwik-Daniels) during visits to Las Vegas.

Some “experts” say he should come forward and give an apology to his wife, etc. so that he can try to hold on to some of his endorsements but others think it’s too late and he should just stay mum. Barbara Walters was on Letterman last night and she said he could’ve done some damage control had he come out right away but she thinks he’s waited too long and now should just stay quiet. What do you think? Do you care to hear anything he has to say? Is it really the public’s business what goes on in their bedroom?

Also, in related Tiger Woods news – Jillian Michaels blasted the golfer, saying that he once hit on her friend!

“He put the moves on a very good friend of mine,” Jillian says.

“I knew he was an ass**** ages ago, I did,” she said at the Biggest Loser season-eight finale in LA on Tuesday night. “Sorry. I didn’t need to watch the news to find that out.”

Yikes! When other public figures/celebrities/peers are saying they know he was a cheater, it kind of makes it more believable, ya know? My heart goes out to his wife and children. What a mess.
