Tiger Woods Is Returning To Golf

April 8. That’s the day Tiger Woods will end his self-imposed break from golf and return to the game, he announced today.

“The Masters is where I won my first major and I view this tournament with great respect,” Woods said in a statement. “After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I’m ready to start my season at Augusta.”

He added: “The major championships have always been a special focus in my career and, as a professional, I think Augusta is where I need to be, even though it’s been a while since I last played.”

If you watched Tiger before, are you ready to start watching him again? Or are you over Tiger for good?

Shia LaBeouf Is In The Money

It’s GQ magazine that makes this declaration with the gorgeous Shia LaBeouf gracing their cover. This is, of course, to promote Shia’s new movie: ‘Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps’ (formerly ‘Wall Street 2′) with Michael Douglas and his girlfriend, Carey Mulligan.

As part of his research for his ‘Wall Street’ role, Shia said he learned about stock trading.

“I trade in my boxers now. I’m up early for the markets. I’m real-time all day long,” he tells GQ’s Adam Sachs.

This is what he had to say about THE car crash:

“I’d be watching the news, and they’d play my car crash, and every once in a while Kim Kardashian’s sister would jump on TV and preach to me from the red carpet about how to live my f**king life.

And I’m so upset, man. I’m so angry. Because this accident was not caused by me. I got hit. I had a green. This f**ker ran a red light. And he flipped my truck, and he shoveled it on my hand.

And my fingers are in the street… They’re off, they’re under the truck door, man. This is fake, dude,’ he says, lifting his newly reconstructed hand. ‘This is hip bone and the skin that was left over.'”

OUCH! You can read Shia’s entire interview in the April issue of GQ. I Can’t Wait for ‘Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.’

More Drama Between Katherine Heigl And ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

It doesn’t sound like the parting between Katherine Heigl and ABC/‘Grey’s Anatomy’ is amicable, from what E! Online’s Kristin Dos Santos is reporting. She confirmed that Katherine was leaving the show. Here’s what else she found out:

… Katherine Heigl has been asking to leave Grey’s Anatomy for close to three years now, and she finally got what she wanted last week when Grey’s boss Shonda Rhimes and… ABC agreed to let her out of her contract.

“She’s leaving the show,” one ABC insider tells me. “She wants to do movies.”

According to one of Heigl’s coworkers on the Grey’s set, things got “pretty miserable” for all parties involved and “they [the producers] decided to let her leave.”

The show’s ABC rep has no comment, and Heigl just parted ways with her personal publicist.

Then someone from Katherine’s camp contacted Kristen with this news:

… the actress was never given a call time to return to work on the Grey’s Anatomy set after her family leave ended earlier this month. According to this source, Heigl’s “calls weren’t returned” when she phoned in asking when to report back.

Actually, none of this is contradictory. It’s entirely possible Katherine’s requests for a call time weren’t returned because they were deciding whether or not they wanted her back.

I don’t blame her for wanting to advance her career and focus on feature films; it’s just unfortunate that it all had to come about this way.

In these pictures Katherine was spotted going to lunch with her manager yesterday. I still can’t get used to her being a brunette but I LOVE that bag.

Report: Sam Mendes And Kate Winslet Had A Trial Separation Last Year

Rumor has it that Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes had a trial separation last year.

The couple – who announced yesterday that their six-year marriage is over – reportedly split up while working together on ‘Revolutionary Road’ with Leonardo DiCaprio last year, but reconciled after realizing they were unhappy apart. A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper:

“Working and living together was incredibly intense and basically overwhelmed their relationship. The pair have a very different work ethos – Sam wanted to switch off after a long day and Kate liked to analyze every nuance of her performance. It was just too much.”

After filming ended, Sam flew out to Florida to work on new movie ‘Away We Go’ but that was hard as well.

After being in each other’s pockets for so long, this, ironically, also proved really difficult. So last year they both made a commitment to spend the year together and do less work. But it actually ended up with them going a bit stir crazy.

“They are both really driven and were arguing more than ever before. Kate even did a really small amount of filming to try and ease the pressure and tension that had built up but they had a series of rows over projects this year and that was the straw that broke the camel’s back.”

Despite only confirming their separation yesterday, rumors have surfaced that there were cracks in their marriage since January, which have been denied.

However, friends of the 34-year-old actress have revealed she and her 44-year-old spouse have been living apart for some time.

“They have been living separately for a while. There had been some huge fights behind closed doors before they decided to formally separate. Kate is devastated. She thought their marriage was forever.”

I thought this marriage was safe as well. However, Hollywood is no different than the rest of the world and our divorce rate rises each year.

Charlie Sheen Pleads Not Guilty In Colorado Court

Today Charlie Sheen has plead not guilty to the charges filed against him after the Christmas Day domestic incident. Charlie is facing charges for felony menacing, misdemeanor third degree assault and misdemeanor criminal mischief.

His trial date is set for July 21.

“Charlie is looking forward for this opportunity to clear his name,” his rep, Stan Rosenfield, said in a statement to Access Hollywood following Monday’s court hearing.

Can you imagine how stressful the set of ‘Two and a Half Men’ is? Between the Charlie/Brooke incident and their rehab “drama” and then Jon Cryer’s ex wife allegedly hiring a hit man, I’m sure they are all hoping for a nice long vacation.

Kim Kardashian Is Too Famous For Her Own Show?

Kim Kardashian is currently in negotiations for the 5th season of ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’, and insiders are saying that E! might not be able to afford to keep her! An insider shares with RadarOnline:

“Kim’s advisors feel that it’s time to explore bigger deals on bigger networks, She’s right to feel like she doesn’t need to open up her personal life to make a living on TV. It looks like Kim can make a lot more money than the TV show can pay her, especially through her endorsement deals and doing appearances on bigger network shows.”

The source said that Kim made more money from that one Carl’s Jr. commercial than she did from an entire season of KUWTK. The source also claims that it’s possible E! will just cancel the show and have Kim do some cameos now and then on Khloe and Kourtney’s Miami show.

“Neither path makes much business sense, especially when the Miami spinoff is doing just fine. The most likely scenario is shutting down the show and focusing on the Miami-Khloe-Kourtney franchise. It just doesn’t make financial sense to pay Kim $300,000 an episode when she can pop in on Khloe and Kourtney free of charge whenever she feels like it. She’s got bigger offers and nobody blames her for wanting to take a look at them.”

Are you a regular viewer of ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’? Do you think Kim should really ditch the show that made her famous?

Jessica Simpson Can Still Trust People

Despite being embarrassed and betrayed by ex-boyfriend John Mayer, Jessica Simpson told Ryan Seacrest it hasn’t made her more suspicious of people in general.

“I’m not as guarded as you would think. I should probably be more guarded. I trust a lot of people, actually,” the actress and singer, 29, told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show Tuesday morning.

Although she also made it clear she’s still upset about John’s comments and hasn’t forgiven him yet. I don’t blame her for that, but I’m glad to hear it hasn’t made her withdraw from people.

Here Jessica is looking pretty upbeat as she arrived at JFK airport yesterday.
