Elin Nordegren, the ex-wife of golf superstar Tiger Woods may join the 12th season cast of Dancing With The Stars, a cast that will be announced during Monday’s The Bachelor season finale.
While she has turned down various offers to star in her own reality TV series, it’s said that producers approached the 31-year-old mother and The National Inquirer says in their March 7 edition that she is seriously considering the opportunity.
According to the tabloid:
“Elin has turned down several reality TV offers, but she thinks Dancing would be a lot of fun, and she especially loves the contestants’ snazzy outfits…Elin works out at home all the time, and she’s in great shape.”

Elin Nordegren gave her first interview since the Tiger Woods sex scandal broke and it went over huge, with People Magazine reporting 2 million copies sold, that’s nearly 600,000 more copies than their 1.4 million average.
How popular was the interview? Editors raised the cost per copy and then printed extra copies, the last time they did that was for the Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt cover back in August 2008, that issue sold 2.5 million copies.
According to PopEater:
“Everyone at People will be popping the champagne this morning. Early numbers show that Elin sold around 2 million copies, way up from its average of 1.4 million, yet not quite the 2.5 million Angelina sold.” Read the rest of this entry »

Nordegren first spoke about her large settlement, telling People:
“Money doesn’t make you happy, but I have to be honest, it is making some things easier….” Read the rest of this entry »

It’s official, the next time Tiger Woods sleeps with a hooker it probably won’t cost him $100 million (unless he gets her pregnant). That’s the rumored amount in assets Woods is paying to Elin Nordegren now that their divorce has been finalized.
Elin, 30 and Tiger, 34, were both in Bay Country Circuit Court in Florida on Monday to witness as their 6-year long marriage was dissolved.
According to the law firm of McGuireWoods:
“Elin Nordegren and Tiger Woods confirmed today that they have divorced. Judgment was entered today in Bay County (Florida) Circuit Court dissolving the marriage,” adding, “The judgment provides for shared parenting of their two children”

Ouch! Tiger Woods is paying ex-wife Elin Nordegren $750,000,000, you read that right, three-quarters of a billion dollars for a single divorce, making it the most expensive divorce of all-time.
As part of the divorce settlement Elin can’t talk about their relationship or Tiger’s infidelities in any way, shape or form.
The news of Megan Fox not returning for Transformers 3 only came out a few days ago, but she’s already been replaced with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Never heard of Rosie, but she’s a very sultry young Victoria’s Secret model and current GF of Jason Statham. I’m guessing Rosie isn’t going to make as much as Megan, but I doubt Michael Bay will take HuffPo writer Lee Stranahan’s advice to put the difference in salaries into a benefits and retirement fund for visual artists — i.e., the real reason, says Lee, for why the Transformers franchise has done so well. Well I haven’t seen Transformers and am in no rush to, but Lee is probably right. Why else are all these movies based on toys doing so well?
So Tiger Woods is potentially about to pay his Elin Nordegren $750M in their divorce settlement, to keep quiet — and could lose any custody of his kids, who’ll probably live in Europe far away from him — and what does he do? He goes out with some mystery blonde. (No, nobody has any photos; just be happy we’re telling you any of this, so you can stay informed.) Dude, I’d be crying in my pitcher of vodka and really fruity juices. Wait, did I say that? I guess maybe old Tiger just has an addiction for cat. Meow. Purr. What would you expect if you name your kid Tiger? And what is he trying to hide? $750M is a lot of hush money.
Hey you might be a star, but that doesn’t mean the rules should be different for you. James Franco found that out when he was chewed out by his college professor for sending text messages during a lecture. Tsk tsk, James.
I’m guessing Jesse James is getting ready to stalk be closer to Sandra Bullock in hopes of getting her back little baby Louis Bardo, whom he and Sandra adopted as a couple. He’s auctioning off a bunch of rare pre-WW II bikes and some hand painted coffins. He’s eyeing moving to Austin, and I guess he’s broke and needs the money. Yes, Austin, where Sandra moved to to presumably get away from him. Apparently an US Weekly source says Jesse wants to lead a very quiet life and get back to a normal routine. What they left off their comment was that being a douchebag seems to have been part of his normal routine in the past.

Whoa! Who knew golf could make you a billionaire. When I was a kind playing golf with my dad (who used to make me carry his golf bag, to make me a man, as he put it), even the top golfers were never worth more than low double digits millions. But Tiger Woods is just one of those athletes (are golfers really athletes?) who changed everything. Honestly, it isn’t the golf winnings per se that made him a billionaire, it had to be the endorsements.
Oh, you didn’t know Tiger was a billionaire? Rachel Uchitel did, I’m thinking (but she’s not Tiger’s wife, so maybe that’s why she only got $10M?). And his wife did, judging by the fact that she’s expecting $750M in their pending divorce settlement. And full custody. And she has so far refused to sign a confidentiality clause, so she could potentially write a book and profit off of that.
All I can say is Tiger, I hope Uchitel and the neighbor’s daughter were worth losing a beautiful wife, kids, $750M and a lot of endorsements. Do you know how many Top Flight golf balls you could buy with that much money? I don’t either but I know it’s a lot. Well at least you didn’t cheat with her twin sister.
Shia LaBeouf is a fool, making negative comments about two recent films he’s been in: namely Transformers 2 and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. His comments disparaged both films in a way that suggests he’s gotten an inflated head. Hey Shia, do you know Katherine Heigl, another notorious motormouth who didn’t know when to shut up a couple of years ago, and put down some of the projects she was with, including Gray’s Anatomy?
Lindsay Lohan may think she’s okay as far as her traffic/ alcohol education classes, but apparently she’s been falling down in Cannes — claiming she’s clumsy and does that a lot — while getting around on the arm of some young man.
Word now is that not only was Jonathan Rhys Myers behaving badly when he got banned from flying United Airlines, but he was throwing around the N-word. Seriously, do actors just get really stupid and have a loose tongue when drunk, or are there still so many racists in the entertainment industry? Shame on you.
It’s been said that highly successful men tend to have very high sex drives, and it appears that Tiger Woods is no different, considering his World Kitty Tour with pretty much any woman in his path, including a neighbor’s daughter. But given what an attractive woman his wife Elin Nordegren is, it makes you wonder what was going on in their marriage.
Men cheat on their significant other probably for two main reasons, and “because he can” seems only to be a mask for “because he’s insecure and needs validation… and because he can easily get it”. (If that’s the case with Tiger, he obviously didn’t get validation considering how many women he supposedly cheated on Elin with.) The other reason is that there’s something lacking in the marriage in the first place, possibly a sexual relationship. Or maybe there’s a third reason and Tiger’s just a sex addict.
I have no idea what the situation is with Tiger and Elin because I tried to avoid reading about it, but it does seem that despite Tiger’s serial infidelity, Elin tried to make things work, taking therapy sessions together and more. But it seems she’s finally reached the end of her forgiveness rope and wants a divorce. They have already been meeting with their lawyers, and they’re apparently to trying to get the divorce done on the down-low. But Elin apparently wants to move to Sweden with their kids, and Tiger has hired a custody guru. Great, so the kids get to be part of a custody tug-of-war.
The video below is a reminder to Tiger of what he’s going to miss out on. Seriously, Tiger, what were you thinking? No way Rachel Uchitel even comes close to Elin.
