Did Tiger Woods alleged mistress Rachel Uchitel really receive a $10 million payout to keep her mouth shut about her affair with the golf legend? If the rumor is true,Â we seriously hopeÂ Elin Nordegren is reconsidering those divorce papers right about now.
Rachel Uchitel, the first of Tiger Woods’ alleged mistresses to be named in the press, reportedly agreed to a $10 million deal to hold her silence about her sexual escapades with the golfer. According to TMZ.com, Utichel signed an “ironclad confidentiality agreement” in exchange for the huge monetary settlement.
While we find it a bit much to believe Tiger Woods would shell out $10 million to an ex-mistress, it’s not like he doesn’t have the money to spare. If Utichel did get anything close to that amount of money from Woods, she’s definitely going to make the other ladies jealous. Several of Woods’ other alleged mistresses reportedly received only a few hundred thousand dollars to purchase their silence. Others got nothing at all and had to earn their fees from the tabloids.
We’re just dying to hear what exactly Rachel Utichel knows about Tiger Woods’ bedroom life that is worth $10 million in cold, hard cash?
The day after his much-publicized and rather disappointing interviews with ESPN and the Golf Channel, Tiger Woods was spotted practicing his golf swing at the Augusta National Golf Club on Monday. Woods will officially be returning to the game for the Masters Tournament at August National, which runs from April 8 to 11.
According to Golf Digest, Tiger Woods played 36 holes on Monday and is working hard on getting back in top shape for the Masters. Reuters reports two of Woods’ practice partners say the golf legend is back in “vintage” form. “I’d be hard pressed to see anyone beat him,” multiple PGA tour winner John Cook told the news agency.
It remains to be seen whether Elin Nordegren will attend the Masters, as she has in the past, to support her embattled husband. During his interviews with ESPN and the Golf Channel, Nordegren holed up on the couple’s luxury yacht with their children to avoid the media frenzy.
While Tiger Woods admitted his affairs with various mistresses was “disgusting behavior,” the golfer is apparently still hoping his fans will be behind him as he returns to the game. “It would be nice to hear a couple claps here and there,” Woods told ESPN.
If Woods is lucky, maybe those “couple claps” will drown out the boos and hisses from the folks out there who would rather he go find a nice, deserted island to practice his swing on, rather than sullying the Masters with his smug, cheating, “entitled” face. Because all we’re going to be thinking about while he lines up his balls is those gross and repulsive text messages he allegedly sent ex-mistress Joslyn James. Eewwwwww.
Tiger Woods ESPN and Golf Channel interviews lasted all of five minutes and revealed little new information about the sex scandal that nearly ended his marriage to Elin Nordegren and left a nasty stain on his legendary career. Woods’ interviews with ESPN and the Golf Channel are the first he’s given since his bizarre Nov. 27 car crash that eventually led to the revelation of his affairs with various alleged mistresses.
In two interviews with on Sunday, Tiger Woods was asked 21 questions by Golf Channel anchor Kelly Tilghman and ESPN reporter Tom Rinaldi.Â The interviews aired simultaneously after a PGA Tour event. CBS, which broadcasts the Masters, reportedly turned down an interview, allegedly because the network was not happy with the five minute time limit. Tiger Woods announced last week he would be returning to golf at the Masters Tournament in August on April 5.
One of the most pointed questions in the interview came from ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi, who asked Tiger Woods why he ever got married to Elin Nordegren in the first place. “Why? Because I loved her,” Woods responded. “I loved Elin with everything I have. And that’s something that makes me feel even worse. That I did this to someone I love that much.”
If you missed the interviews and give a crap about hearing any more lame BS from Tiger Woods – you can check them out below.
Alleged Tiger Woods mistress Josyln James is capitalizing on the golfer’s announcement he will be attending the Masters by launching a new website full of racy text messages she claims he sent her during their affair.
Former porn actress Joslyn James, also known as Veronica Siwik-Daniels, posted more than 100 text messages she claims are from Tiger Woods to her, many of them X-Rated, on www.sextingjoslynjames.com Thursday. If the Tiger Woods text messages are indeed for real, we don’t think we’ll ever be able to look at him with anything but disgust ever again. (Warning: the content on this site isÂ definitely 18 and over only!)
Some of the text messages detail alleged fantasies Tiger Woods had of choking Joslyn James, throwing her around and engaging in gross sexual play with her that we aren’t going to talk about. “I want to treat you rough,” one message reads. “Throw you around, spank and slap you.” The text messages also allege he liked to call James a “whore” and wanted to hook up for threesomes with “another girl you trust.” James did not, however, post any messages she sent to Woods – a glaring omission in our opinion.
The last text message posted on the site is dated October 4, 2009 and implies that James had somehow nearly let the secret of their affair slip out. “Don’t f**king talk to me. You almost just ruined my whole life. If my agent and these guys would have seen you there, F**k!”
James says she wants the public to know the truth about her alleged relationship with Tiger Woods. The former porn star claims she was Woods’ “full-time mistress” and had an affair with him for three years during his marriage to wife Elin Nordegren.
“He led her to believe she was the only woman in his life other than his wife,” James’ attorney Gloria Allred said last monthÂ at a press conference. “She was in love with him, and he told her that he loved her… Whatever rehab Tiger participates in will not be meaningful or effective unless he acknowledges the relationship he had with my client.”
We didn’t really think the whole Tiger Woods sex scandal story could get any more screwed up, but if these text messages are real… well, let’s just say we’d never show our face in public again.
Even before Tiger Woods formally announced he would be returning to the golf world at the Masters Tournament at Augusta National, ticket prices for the event were already getting out of hand in anticipation he might show up. Now that everyone knows Woods will be playing, Masters golf tournament ticket prices are soaring into the thousands of dollars.
Tickets for the Masters Tournament at August National usually go for $200 to $400 average, but now fans who want to be present to watch Tiger Woods hit the balls once again may well have to pay several thousand for the privilege. Tickets for resale on sites like GoldenTickets.com are going for up to $2400. Auctions for Masters tickets on eBay are climbing above $3000. Some of the more reasonable prices still available can be found over at StubHub.com, but prices there are climbing rapidly as well.
So if you’re one of those rabid fans who just have to get to the Masters to see Tiger Woods hit the course again in person, you best be buying some tickets pronto. Every day that passes, the Masters ticket prices just get more insane. Personally, we’d rather just watch the debacle on television, where we can giggle and sneer over the media frenzy in the privacy of our own home.
Tiger Woods announced Tuesday he will be returning to golf next month to play the Masters Tournament at the Augusta National Golf Club. Woods said he feels like he is finally ready to return to the game that made him a household name, but he still has issues in his personal life to deal with.
“The Masters is where I won my first major and I view this tournament with great respect,” Woods said in a press statement. “After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I’m ready to start my season at Augusta.”
The announcement finally ends weeks of speculation about when and where Tiger Woods will return to the golf course competitively. It comes as little surprise that Woods would choose the Masters Tournament as his first foray back into the game. “The major championships have always been a special focus in my career and, as a professional, I think August is where I need to be,” Woods said, “even though it’s been a while since I last played.”
Woods said that he has undergone nearly two months of inpatient therapy to deal with his sexual addiction and other issues and he will be continuing to receive treatment. “Although I’m returning to competition, I still have a lot of work to do in my personal life,” Woods said.
“When I finally got into a position to think about competitive golf again, it became apparent to me that the Masters would be the earliest I could play. I called both Joe Lewis and Arnold Palmer and expressed my regrets for not attending the Tavistock Cup and the Arnold Palmer Invitational,” Woods said.Â “I again want to thank them both for their support and their understanding. Those are fantastic tournaments and I look forward to competing in them again.”
We’re betting this could turn out to be the highest rated Masters Tournament in history. Hell, we might even watch it – and we can’t stand watching golf on TV – just to see the insanity of the media frenzy in action.
Much maligned golf legend Tiger Woods may be returning to the game in as little as two weeks, according to media reports. Woods recently hired former presidential advisor Ari Fleischer to help him work on his ‘image’ and reportedly plans to play in the Arnold Palmer Invitational later this month.
According to the New York Post, several sources are reporting Tiger Woods is hoping to take part in the Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill in Orlando. Arnold Palmer himself hasÂ allegedly told confidants that Woods will be playing in the tournament.
Former George W. Bush advisor Ari Fleischer will allegedly help to smooth the path for Woods’ return to golf. “They were in his living room this week going over a strategy for how to handle Bay Hill in two weeks,” an unidentified source told the New York Post. Fleischer notably helped baseball player Mark McGwire to rebuild his image after he was busted for using steroids.
It’s possible Tiger Woods might actually plan his debut a few days earlier than the Palmer Invitational. The March 22-23 Tavistock Cup takes place at Woods’ home golf course of Isleworth in Florida, but has a lower profile than the Invitational. That could prove to Woods’ benefit in easing back into the sport he’s been absent from for so long.
Whenever Woods does return to the golf world for the first time, we’re sure it will be a virtual media circus. No doubt one of the things the press will be hounding over is whether or not Woods’ wife, Elin Nordegren, shows up to root on her husband – and whether or not that wedding ring is finally back on her finger if she does.
