Why Alleged Tiger Woods’ Mistress, Rachel Uchitel, Cancelled Her Press Conference

Yesterday, one of the women who is alleged to have had an affair with Tiger Woods, Rachel Uchitel, was supposed to hold a press conference with her attorney, Gloria Allred. It was cancelled at the last minute.

According to Radar Online, Rachel was negotiating a $1 million payoff to ensure her silence. However, TMZ claims money was NOT the reason Rachel cancelled the press conference.

One very connected source said, “This was absolutely not about money.”

Sources say Rachel became “scared for her safety” because she knows so much about Tiger, his alleged affairs and a variety of other Woods matters. We’re told Tiger confided in Rachel … she knows specifics about “other women,” as well as information about Tiger’s marriage.

The sources were quick to point out, Rachel does not fear Tiger, as much as she fears all the other people caught in what is becoming a very large net.

What in the world could Rachel possibly know that would make her fearful for her safety? Tiger’s an athlete, not a politician; it’s not like he shared national security issues with her!

I’d say Radar Online’s story sounds more believable: which one do you think is more likely?

This is just getting more and more bizarre. (Of course, to me it seems bizarre to call a press conference in the first place, but what do I know?)

Fact Or Fiction: Lindsay Lohan Crossed The Line With Cash Warren?

Over the last few weeks, Lindsay Lohan has been reportedly linked to any single man in Hollywood from John Mayer to Leonardo DiCaprio. The latest rumor involves – a very married – Cash Warren!

According to witnesses, the two were very openly kissing at hotspot Villa! The sources said that the two:

“ignored friends and just chatted.” The real trouble began half an hour in. “Lindsay and Cash started making out,” an onlooker tells Us.

“Lip on tongue,” the eyewitness continues, “It was raw. They were not shy!”

Another Villa patron that night gasped, “It was a shock to see the two of them kiss, but it was real.”

Lindsay responded to the claims:

for her part, Lohan tells Us that the account is “absurd. He is married. I wouldn’t dare kiss him.”

Also, sources are saying that Jessica Alba is fed up with Cash and their relationship has been on the rocks recently?

“When he goes out with friends, he gets into trouble,” a pal says of Alba’s husband in the new issue of Us Weekly.

“Jessica is not as into Cash as she used to be,” one source says.

Do you think there’s any shred of truth to this? Or just mean-spirited “haters” starting more trouble for Lindsay?

ABC Cancels Two More Of Adam Lambert’s Appearances

Adam Lambert announced on twitter that ABC has cancelled two more of his appearances: one on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ and one on New Year’s Eve.

Yes, sadly friends, ABC has cancelled my appearances on Kimmel and NYE. :( don’t blame them. It’s the FCC heat.

Maybe he did go a little too far on the AMAs, given the wide audience that show has, but doesn’t this seem like overkill? I mean, ABC can simply stipulate in their contracts with Adam that he has to stick to his rehearsed performance or threaten to withhold some of his fee if his actions are deemed inappropriate.

What do you think: is ABC over-reacting or are they right to cancel his performances on their shows?

‘Dancing With The Stars’ Has To Choose: Maksim Or Karina?

The hazards of dating in the workplace… Things reportedly have gotten so bad between former couple Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Karina Smirnoff that ‘Dancing with the Stars’ producers may need to choose between one or the other, according to PopEater.

“It’s really gotten ugly between the two of them since the spit,” a friend of the chest-waxing dancer (you guess which one) told [PopEater].

Things must be bad: the two don’t even have to dance together on the show! This is the risk you take when you date co-workers, though. I also suspect Karina was on the rebound from her break-up with Mario Lopez, which is party why things have ended so badly here.

What do you think: should ‘DWTS’ producers tell Maksim and Karina to be professionals or choose one? And which one would you choose?

You can also vote for which one you can choose in a PopEater poll. Make your voice heard!

Tiger Woods Releases New Statement

Tiger Woods has finally broken his silence. Here’s his statement, taken from his website:

I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart. I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves. I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect. I am dealing with my behavior and personal failings behind closed doors with my family. Those feelings should be shared by us alone.

Although I am a well-known person and have made my career as a professional athlete, I have been dismayed to realize the full extent of what tabloid scrutiny really means. For the last week, my family and I have been hounded to expose intimate details of our personal lives. The stories in particular that physical violence played any role in the car accident were utterly false and malicious. Elin has always done more to support our family and shown more grace than anyone could possibly expect.

But no matter how intense curiosity about public figures can be, there is an important and deep principle at stake which is the right to some simple, human measure of privacy. I realize there are some who don’t share my view on that. But for me, the virtue of privacy is one that must be protected in matters that are intimate and within one’s own family. Personal sins should not require press releases and problems within a family shouldn’t have to mean public confessions.

Whatever regrets I have about letting my family down have been shared with and felt by us alone. I have given this a lot of reflection and thought and I believe that there is a point at which I must stick to that principle even though it’s difficult.

I will strive to be a better person and the husband and father that my family deserves. For all of those who have supported me over the years, I offer my profound apology.

At this point, I’m not surprised, but I have to admit, I am SO disappointed. Tiger seemed like one of the few clean-cut high profile athletes out there.

I understand his desire for privacy, but you know, limited privacy is part of what comes with fame and fortune. Or do you think the tabloids have gone to far in this case?

Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie Try To Quiet Break-Up Rumors?

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were on rumor control detail last night. Amid break-up rumors, the two were snapped heading to a double dinner date with George Clooney. I don’t have rights to the photo, but you can check out what they wore here.

Meanwhile, Ian Halperin, the author of the new tell-all book, tells PopEater that the two will be split in the next 15-18 months! He spoke exclusively with PopEater, sharing some more highlights from his book.

PopEater: There’s a prediction that Brad and Angie will split in or before 18 months. What do you think the odds are on that?

Halperin: They won’t be different than other Hollywood number 1 couples. They won’t be together forever. I’ll bet my last dollar on it. They’ve made the attempt. In the beginning, they were enamored with each other, but she’s an extremely sexual person and she gave him the attention that he’d never had before. It was paradise at the beginning. But look at Pitt today, he looks like he’s been hit by a truck compared to four years ago. She has brought a lot of good things to him — the children, for example — but he didn’t know what he was getting into and that’s why I think they’re going to split. I hope it plays out well because there’s six children involved, but I don’t think it will. I give them 15-18 months.

He claims that he interviewed over 900 people while putting this book together! Have you read the book? What did you think? You can read the full interview here, it’s quite interesting.

Forgive the old pictures from the Oscars back in February, I just couldn’t resist the “pre-crazybeard” Brad. lol! Oh how I miss him!

Fact Or Fiction: Lindsay Lohan Hot For John Mayer?

Move over Samantha Ronson, Lindsay Lohan might have her eye on a new partner – John Mayer! Sources are saying that Lindsay set her sights on John last night at Butter in NYC. The two shared a table and did a little dancing together.

“She would follow his every move,” a source tells E! News. “He would dance with the waitresses and then come back. She was way into it.”

The sources claim that John was downing shots but Lindsay turned them down. They partied til after 3 a.m. together.

John’s “people” had “no comment” today. But Lindsay took to her Twitter to be cryptic this morning:

“@johncmayer shhhhhhhhhhhhhh butter-face :),” she wrote this morning.

She was certainly all smiles as she headed out on a flight from JFK this morning. What do you think? Has John found his Twitter soul mate in Lindsay? They both love their Twitter and their press, right?
