Just like celebrity deaths come in waves (hello, summer of 2009!), so do celebrity breakups. And so far April 2010 has been a graveyard for partnered-up famous people. Join us for a review of all these blissful love affairs gone to crap.
If you think that regular civilians are the only ones who have an opinion on Hollywood scandals, think again. Lots of celebrities have voiced their opinion over the Tiger Woods and Jesse James scandals. Here's a roundup of what some have said, according to US Magazine, PopEater and ABC News, among other sources
Larry King and his seventh wife, Shawn Southwick King, filed for divorce on Wednesday, and we guessed this was just another case of Larry's suspenders coming in the way of true love. But now Radar is reporting that Larry may have been carrying on a years-long affair with Shawn's sister, Shannon Engemann.
Amazingly, Elin Nordegren has finally had enough as divorce does appear imminent for Tiger Woods and his Swedish model-of-a-wife. Reportedly, the last straw was the Nike video, which left Elin "disgusted," "outraged," and "violently angry." Well, it was that on top of his too-early return to golf that really made her realize that not all the money in the world could keep her with him.
Tiger Woods' comeback at the Masters has barely begun and it may already be skidding off the rails. Yet another woman he slept with, his neighbor Raychel Coudriet, told her story to the tabloids.
Jesse James spent barely a week in rehab, leaving the Sierra Tucson facility in Arizona last week when Sandra Bullock reportedly refused to take a phone call from him, and then returning to treatment on Sunday.
Media outlets can only show the public three minutes per hour of the Tiger Woods press conference that went down earlier this afternoon in Augusta, Georgia, per an agreement with Masters officials. Smart move, as there was a smattering of soundbites that could be played on loop for the next few days: I meditate religiously again like I used to... When you live a life where you're lying all the time, life is not fun... And the fact I won golf tournaments I think is irrelevant. I'm just trying to put the ball in the hole. Below, all the bits that you would be hearing if it weren't for the semi-gag order:
Today, in Augusta, Georgia, the 2010 Masters Golf Tournament begins*. So does the rest of Tiger Woods post-sex scandal life. He is not without a game plan: 1) Avoid mistresses, 2) Win tournament, and 3) Renew marriage vows. It's a simple formula, but one that he and his handlers think is key to his personal and professional redemption.
And you thought you knew it all. This month's Vanity Fair — on newsstands now — has an article entitled "The Temptations of Tiger Woods," in which four more of his mistresses come forward with their story.
We recently reported that Sandra Bullock had been hiding out in her pre-marital Hollywood Hills home, remaining out of the public eye while deciding what to do since Jesse James turned the couple's marriage into a four-ho circus. Sandy left her home on Monday for parts unknown and she's finally made up her mind—she's getting a divorce. Please join us in giving Sandra a virtual high-five.
The rumor currently scalding its way around the Internets that doesn't involve golf or Nazis is that Jillian Michaels, the mean screamy trainer lady from The Biggest Loser, and former Las Vegas actress Vanessa Marcil are having a sexy lesbian tryst.
Just two months ago, Sandra Bullock dispensed some prophetic advice to Elin Woods while walking the red carpet at the People’s Choice Awards: “If I were Elin … man, I would have hit a lot more than she did … I would have kept hitting!” Little did she know that her own husband, Jesse James, would soon involve her in a similar cheating scandal.
Adult film actress Devon James stepped forward yesterday as another of Tiger Woods' secret lovers, bringing his porn star count up to three and his total mistress count to 15. This latest news comes shortly after another porn actress, Joslyn James (er, no relation), published Tiger's racy texts on her website, which caused Tiger's long suffering wife, Elin Nordegren, to storm out of the couple's home.
In a 5-minute interview with ESPN last night, Tiger Woods talked about how he is setting out to reconcile his past behavior with his views on marriage. The answer? "That's living a life of amends and that's just working at it each and every day," he said. Some days will be harder than others, no doubt — especially if they involve former mistresses publishing strings of sexually explicit text messages, as former porn star Joslyn James did last week.
