It’s the story that just isn’t going away. And with Tiger Woods remaining quiet but for the few sparse statements to the media, this thing is just going to continue to spiral out of control until a bigger news story comes along, or every mistress has exhausted her 15 minutes of fame. So, that said, what’s the latest with the Woods scandal this week?
#1: Sponors Take Flight: Woods was dropped by consulting firm Accenture over the weekend. Gillette has decided to stop running Woods campaigns while he’s on his golf hiatus and then reevaluate. AT&T is “reevaluating”. Tag Heuer is surprisingly standing with Woods despite the embarrassing “What are you made of?” tagline on all of their billboards with Tiger. If I were Woods, I'd be looking over those Accenture ads for some inspiration. Many are actually applicable to his current situation (i.e. "10% what you did, 90% what you do next")
#2: Wife Elin Nordegren steps out: Elin was spotted out to lunch in Orlando with the two kids Sam & Charlie and held her head high (good for her). We also know that she’s closed on a house in Swedan so I am imagining she’ll be heading there soon. Elin is not wearing her wedding ring, is supposedly in talks with both high-profile divorce lawyer, Sorrell Trope, and even Puma about becoming the face of their Swedish-inspired clothing line, Tretorn.
#3: Mistresses Talk About Being on the Woods Payroll: We are also now hearing reports of $5,000-$10,000 monthly allowances for many of Woods’ mistresses. This actually explains why they all kept the lid on this thing for so long and why they are all stampeding after their 15 minutes of fame (read $$) now that sugar daddy is out of the picture.
#4: Porn star lover Joslyn James to make (surprise) Porno based on Woods Affair: This has got to be the most embarrassing Tiger news of the week. One of his porn ladies, Joslyn James, the one Woods hooked up with at his bachelor party, is in talks with Vivid to do a “documentary style” porno based on her night with Woods. Good news is that she says he’s a Tiger in the bedroom. Bad news is that it’s happening at all. Can you imagine who is going to play Woods? Can you imagine the possible titles? Tiger’s Wood? Hole in One…I'll stop there.
#5: New Tiger Cougar girlfriend comes out of the woodwork (grrrrrr): Theresa Rogers, 48, is the latest in the line of Tiger ladies to come forth to get her time in the shamelight, I mean, spotlight. And everyone is buzzing over her cougar status given the young ages of most of the rest of the harem.
