When Oprah Winfrey announced that she would be ending her talk show in 2011 she promised fans that she would be going out with a bang, producing some great shows with the most provocative guests.
Now the Queen of Daytime television is targeting the most sought-after man in the news right now, Tiger Woods.
“We have reached out to him but nothing is confirmed,” a spokesperson for Harpo, the production company responsible for "The Oprah Winfrey Show," told CNN.
If Tiger does opt for the sit-down television interview in an attempt to revamp his image following allegations of affairs and his own admission of “transgressions” in his personal relationships, Winfrey would be the safe bet. He has appeared on her show before and the two are personal friends.
Of course, with Oprah nothing is ever off limits, so he shouldn’t think he is getting off easy.
There is no word on whether Tiger’s wife, Elin Nordegren, would appear on the famous couch beside him.
is elin a professional golfer?
tiger is the start not her...why should she be on oprah...cause she was smart enough to marry a celebrity...she can go win some tournaments of her own first
What was Tiger woods thinking? Being a celebrity, you will be caught at some point. But oh gosh he loves sampling women. I wish he had not married but specialised in sampling with his billions. Nobody would claim him and all of us women would have a share of his wealth and money. Its too late to reform. The damage is done and I can only empathise. Dont zip up or show up at oprah's as it will not help. Continue unzipping at all tournaments and play more golf to provide for your beautiful children.
Tiger Woods is like any young person that has fallen from grace. Tiger, should not allow this to define him. The Word of the Lord states that a righteous man shall fall seven times, but when tried and tested, the real deal is to not stay down. He needs to lift his head up high and not let this get him down.
To the nay sayers and the pessimist get a life, it is not you but who knows what challenge you face or will face. Judge that you be not judged.
Elin, I share your pain at this time, it is a difficult thing to face. I know that you feel that your world has come to an end, but trust me it has just begun. Your family is going through a situation that is not unique. Love changes all. Love your husband and prove to others that you are a bigger and better person. Don't let them see you sweat on your first cruise. God is with you even in these times. This too shall pass. Think of the love between you two. Let go and let God work it out for you. Most of all think about your kids; for now put them first.
Where I Do Not approve of what Tiger Woods did, The Bible said; Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. We all have sin and you may think your sin isn’t as bad as Tiger Woods But it’s all sin in the eyes of the Lord. I pray for him and his family, may they find their away with the Lords help.
First, where are all your friends? I hope this teach you, who your true
friend are. You have ask for forgivness, you ask GOD's for givness
now, for give your self. You layed down with dog's and got up with flea.
Now read Psalm 51, and walk tall, like the man your father in Haven know's you are. Let him with out sin. GOD Bless you, and your family.

That is a wonderful idea, isn't it? Smart move, now that's the Tiger I remember. I hope his wife is strong enough and gives him the strength and the love he needs to save their family. If he does not get it right this time I am afraid he will lead a very troubled life. I am rooting for him and her! Life is hard and all the money in the world is not going to change that! Although it allows a higher material quality of life, when you have to look your wife in the face and see her pain, your bank account means nothing to you, maybe to her but at that moment, to you it means absolutely nothing! Good luck to them both!
Tiger's decision to go on hiatus from golf is brilliant. It creates a story even bigger than the infedelities. It actually dwarfs all of tiger's affairs. Now it takes Tiger away from the game that made him the #1 pro athlete in modern times. The sportswriters will be screaming mad, the lawyers will be pissed, the media will also be shrieking for any kind of Tiger story and they will just have to repeat themselves with old information. Tiger apparently is putting himself, his life and his career at the mercy of his wife Ellin. Fascinating move, and he doesn't have to visit the throne of Oprah. Yet! Now, the big play is all in Ellin's hands. I suspect she'll have the leash on Tiger for at least six months, evaluate the situation after that. However, I doubt Tiger makes more than a handful of public appearances in 2010. I don't think he'll play any tournaments til Ellin tells him its OK. Maybe he'll get his clubs back for the 2011 Masters, perhaps start training for 2011 season.
Dear Mrs. Woods, The sun gets up on all of us everyday. Some days are diamonds and some aren't quite diamonds. So, when one is not quite perfect we in order to not let it eat us, have to be bigger than what the day has to offer. I have found that my serenity is in direct proportion to my expectations. If I don't expect my children or the rest of my family to be...... then I am not disappointed if they turn out to be human,i.e., not perfectly the way I would have them regarding anything. Believe it or not, there are those of us in the public who would not pay a penny for a tabloid magazine and what's more think very little of some broad who pops up with a crock of bologona that no body believes, must less cares about. Mam, you are blessed in many ways. Now is the time to count those blessings and be bigger than the problem. When you are, the problem will fall into the microperspective where it belongs. I ask you, as God looks down on the moment, would you have Him change the world or would it be as it is, better to see this moment in time for what it is worth in all his creation, a minimicroevent. I for one will admire you when I hear that you have told everyone that your concern is for your husband, that you are bigger than the problem and that all the bimbos in the world don't amount to spit. The truth will make them smaller and smaller and like others, they will simply fade away. God loves you, See Ya in a Bit, Newt
Can anyone tell me what the percentage rate is of marriages that end in divorce in the past decade? People think he's a role model because he can play golf... really? We all have faults. And, his kids are too small to realize what is happening at this moment. Only time will tell how they react to this situation. Oprah? Stay out of it!
You should have denied everything.
Just keep saying " It wasn't me".
Whoever is advising Jamie Grubbs is pretty smart. Jamie has come out with an apology to Ellin, and this will get her far more publicity than publishing all her text messages, voice-mails, photos, etc.
She'll be seen as a 'reasonable woman' and the celebrity shows will want her on their shows. ie. ET, TMZ, Carcass Daly, Conan, the Gossiper, The View, Joy Behar.....just one word of advice for Ms. Grubbs. Stay away from Glen Beck and Nancy Grace. They are monsters!
This is ridiculous. No one needs to hear how "wronged" Elin is or how "sorry" Tiger is. That goes without saying. The ones who are after money and fame are the women who are coming out of the woodwork and proclaiming how much they care about Tiger. What a bunch of garbage. They don't care about him or even themselves because the more of them that come out, the worse they all look!
If Oprah was such a friend, she'd leave the two to work out their issues in private. She's exploiting their friendship for personal and professional gain. Oprah, you're taking a page out of Jerry Springer's book. (I know you read these comments.)
Tiger fans that are disappointed, keep in mind that he's an athelete and we're only exposed to the individual through the eyes of the media and and marketing folks that show us what they want us to see. Idolize him and others for what their strengths are, and remember that the persona that is on TV is just that. It's finely manipulated and sculped so that you'll buy Nike, Gatorade, and Buick. Wait, I can't buy a Buick anymore. He plays the game of golf like no other can. Don't expect more than that. Tiger, porn stars??? seriously dude. (I know you read these comments)
I don't hear anyone reaching out to Tiger's wife or children. She and the children are the victims in all this mess that Tiger done himself. O how did we know that the all powerful and wise Oprah would speak for Tiger? I won't be watching.
The man who we all thought was Mr Clean turned out to be a Male Slut ! He needs to get tested for STD and AIDS. His wife needs to leave him before she contracts STD
Ugh ! I'd not want to be in the same room with him for fear of getting infected or even shake hands with the guy.
The other golfers will be hard pressed to shake hands with this guy if he ever returns to the Tour. The infection could be transmitted through a handshake.
Why is Gloria Allred always in big-time cases like this? She is quick to pounce on opportunity, isn't she? Never trust a lawyer. They are there for the money, not for the truth. You know, they really suck the hell out of you. You know, vampires are all-red after they are drenched with their victim's blood.
I think that some people have forgotten that Tiger's wife's "supposed "actions that she attacked him is being looked over! Cheatting on your wife is wrong but physcally acting him is a crime the last time I checked.
Tigers advisers will be advising The Tigerman to spend a lot of money: a. to pay off the leeches, b. to pay all the advisors, c. to take a one-year hit on his endorsements, d. to take a one year hit on his golf career (thats huge), e. to closely monitor all the trailer trash thats gonna be comin' out of the woods (sorry for the pun), f. the HUGE PAYOFF TO ELLIN FOR FORGIVING AND FORGETTING (Legally)....
But I agree with some. We don't know all the facts, Ellin might have found Tiger repulsive in bed so Tiger looked to find comfort with the trashy crowd.
If Tiger is worth around 750 million as many report, he could easily be down to 200 to 250 million by the time Team Ellin finishes with him and that goes for Team Allred.
What is surprising is that there has been a lot of commentary about why men cheat? Let us not forget, there is exactly one man here involved and about 9 or a dozen women who CHEATED in this case! So who is the bigger cheat, man or WOMEN??? Women have no moral high road to claim! They are equally capable or even worse than men at lying, conniving, deceiving and committing evil! So please, no more Team Elin vs. Team Tiger here. Tiger's wife will be totally happy with a multimillion dollar settlement. She has a price, just like all the whores who seduced Tiger. And Tiger, dude, you are a major douchebag. You stink as much as all the women involved in this fiasco. Thanks for all these despicable characters for stinking up the airwaves with all your filthy misdeeds! Women, stop fretting and stop complaining! Your gender has done as much damage! If you really care, stop strangling Tiger and start smacking these evil sluts as well!
Some of the comments here are sick. They made her as a villain. As far as I know, she didn't cheat on him. If you are a celebrity then the other partner must be at fault. Wake up and be fair. She is the victim here. Some say she is in for the money. We don't know that if they have a pre-nup or not. Get on the facts.
Yes tiger was wrong to cheat on his wife. But he is human as all of us are. He is still an amazing golf player! and the fact that him and his wife are having problems has nothing to do with the fact that he loves his children! and well oprah is reaching out to him because they are friends and well she can.
Hello, have we forgotten about the children? Really I love it when these women state, "she's just into for the money". Give me a break this guy had alledged affairs with how many? She deserves much more than money. She has the children to raise for many years to come and they deserve the lifestyle they would be entitled to. Had he kept that family together and acted as a father and husband instead of a barn yard dog.
First of all, Oprah is not offering him marriage counseling. Get a clue. She's helping a friend rehab his image and helping herself with a show that's guaranteed to have super high ratings.
And I stopped feeling sorry for Tiger's wife when I heard that they were renegotiating the prenup a few days ago. The fact that the possibility of getting more money was even a part of her decision to stay or go is disgusting.
Oprah 'reaching out to Tiger"... I don't think so.. Having him come on her show to explain himself is NOT reaching out, its' sweeps time .. She SHOULD reach out to his wife, if anyone....Tiger has some "splainin" to do
Oprah is just Oprah. The real brains behind that operation for so many years has been Gayle King, everyone knows that!
I think it is very admirable of Oprah to reach out to Tiger Woods. Oprah is a very sincere and caring person who I think is genuinely concerned about all the media hype and how this has affected the Woods family.
How about his wife Oprah? Are you reaching out to her?
Oprah, I think the part of the problem is that he's had too many women 'reach out' to him! I don't watch your show and this is probably one of the reasons why: your'e profiteering from human misery again, unless you've earned a degree in psychology that I don't know about.
Enough already. RE: Tiger Woods–we all make mistakes. Lets focus on more important issues in life!!!
so what makes Oprah an authority on marriage???!!! What are her credentials for advising anyone on matrimony and fidelity and loyalty> WHATEVER, OPRAH! You are just interested in ratings!!! So why don't you just go back to doing your little talk show and leave Tiger and his wife and their billions of dollars alone. As for Elin and those whores who seduced Tiger, just go shopping, girls! Nothing that a thousand dollar pair of shoes will not cure! And Tiger, go file for divorce now before your wife takes more of your earnings. You have brought this disaster upon yourself, so deal with it and not go crying over to Oprah's show! All losers, you all!!!
Turner and Em you took my words right out of my mouth. I use to think highly of Oprah until... remember the presidential election or race time? did you see Hilary Clinton, John McCain or Sarah Palin on her show? Nope. It's great that she built a school for children in Africa, but why not upgrade or build a new one here in the U.S. for white children? Yes she reached out to Rihana (not sure of spelling) but not Elin Woods, only Tiger? Did you see her reach out to the Carolina Governor or his wife? Nope, wrong color again. let's see what else...oh yes, the ridiculous dash w/the Obama's re the olympics. Not a big fan of favortisim or prejudice. I truly believe The Woods deserve their privacy just as much as anybody else with personal issues. I'm a fan of Tiger's but he is human and he needs help (preferably from God). Just because he is the greatest of anything does not give us (the world, fans, media etc.) the right to know every gory detail, personally i don't want to know every detail and wish the whole family the best.
I think,if anyone cares, that Mr. Woods is not only a cheater but also a coward. My advice (as if anyone cares) get a spine pal,be a man and face up,your not the first and you wont be the last. Having said that–any moron in the 21st century should know better than to text anything that they percieve as personal. Come on Tiger,do you really think your above "virtual"?
This is disgusting! Although I respect Oprah, seems to me that Oprah wants those full ratings on her exit show by calling in Tiger. Its insensitive to Elin and her family. Shame on you, Oprah!
Forget Oprah this is a Jerry Springer show now 11 women, porn stars, get them all on the show, Tiger, the wife and the girls. Now thats a show and in the end bring on Oprah to hug him.
Ben is correct and Oprah should keep her ratings-driven a** totally out of this situation. Same with Dr. Phil. If Tiger does any media appearance it will be with a media putz like Larry King, in the form of a quick 10 or 12 minute live phone-in.
Tiger may suffer, believe it or not from some low self-esteem. Remember from the time he was a toddler he was schooled by his late father in what? GOLF 101, then 202, etc, etc.
Once he bagged what could be called a TROPHY WIFE, he treated her about as well as one of his clubs – just to be used in certain situations. And once Ellin decided to shut down the home front, Tiger became a lurching, text-messaging, rambunctious seeker of the holy grail from somewhat seedy and very needy secondary sources. (The Black Book count mounts).....and not having Fluff or Steve on the bag didn't help!!! As I said once before, Tiger was lucky that he didn't marry one of the Williams sisters – cuz they'd have found him next to the fire hydrant with a tennis raquet gorwing out of his arse and a couple tennis balls stuffed into his mouth.
TIger's mistake is he went after women with nothing to lose. Look at his choices. Cocktail waitresses, hotel clerks...WTF, even Elin was a nanny. I'm tired of hearing about her modeling career, if her career was so dang hot why was she working as Jesper Parnevik's NANNY when tiger met her. Supermodels don't moonlight as Nannys. She had nothing when he met her and now she's a multimillionaire and will probably get a half a billion dollars if they divorce. She'll get over her embarrassment... The rest of those women sold him out for tabloid money...
The only person who needs to hear and believe Woods is sorry, is Elin and I seriously doubt that will happen. He might be a winner in golf, but what a loser in life.
Donna-"I was a huge Tiger fan but now it's plain to see that he is just a normal person whose head was over-inflated with fame. I feel sorry for his wife for being so humiliated in the media. Even if she does get a lot of money (if they divorce), she'll still have to remember the embarrassment at her expense. If you're not happy, just get divorced already. I like Oprah too but I agree that she is not an expert on marriage or relationships so she needs to butt out. By "reaching out" to Tiger, she is implying she is on his side. She needs to put one of her high-dollar pumps up his backside!"
Donna this is exactly what's wrong with America, you do not know this man from Adam and you, yes you, built him up as someone to worship and now you are blaming him for being just a normal man. LOL, he and every one else on this little planet are just normal people, some of us are famous, or infamous in some cases, because mostly we are good at what we do and what we is admired by the public. We are all normal people in every other sense and normal people make mistakes and do stupid things just like you and me. Hopefully you have learned something from this about yourself.
Tiger appears to be a sex-crazed addict who has been at the top of his game despite the addiction. However, as his world unravels he will get mixed response from the crowds at the tournaments. He will still be fawned over by those with no moral berings, The Tiger-Haters will be out in full force when Tiger returns. I think Tiger will play a limited schedule in 2010, perhaps the majors and maybe 10 to 12 tournaments. His team will also monitor how badly the brand of Tiger has been hurt. One good thing – Tiger is extremely lucky he wasn't married to Serena Williams!!!
Oprah is pretty full of herself to think we want to see her with Tiger. I don't care if I ever see Tiger again. He is pathetic.
Oprah should stay out of this one this is a private matter and Tiger should stick to his guns and keep it private. Bad enough that all these ladies are coming out of the woods excuse the pun but its nobody business except him and his wife.And she shouldnt get half earning because she does play half of the tournaments and do half of his endorsements she should get what ever their prenup states and support for the kids.
Mary: in your eyes, Eldrick may be ugly; but his wife might just be into Asian men...also, before this story broke, who among us didn't think that he a decent man? I did. Now, of course, as I stated earlier, Elin needs to walk away and never look back.
Oh and I do hope and pray the couple find a way to work it out. A huge mistake was made and i hope that they can find a way to work towards a new and better life. Forget about money and the other media BS.
I understand why people are disapointed with Mr Woods and all but why arent people upset with the women who got invoved with a married man. Yes Mr Woods is a great golfer but he is a man that made a mistake. So now lets read some headlines talking junk about the dirty whores!
1. People need to learn how to spell and construct COMPLETE sentences that make sense.
2. Tiger needs to get tested for STDs judging by the trash he's been sleeping with. I'm sure between them all, there has to be an STD or two in there!
Oprah needs to set an example. Give the family their privacy. His "transgressions" are NOT NEWS and there is nothing that the public will learn from this. Men, the mothers who raise them, and the therapists who are supposed to treat them are the ones who must learn from this. Otherwise, we're left with one option which is to redefine our standards for marriage...and that would be as sad as the current statistics.
I do think, Oprah should reach out to the Tiger and Elin;
This would be a great opportunity to talk about what an awful drug Ambien can be....with or without adding alcohol the side effects are blackouts, sleep walking and bizarre behavior....add Tiger's name to the same club that Michael Jackson and Anna Nicole recently joined...
Well, well, well. Glad to know everyone seems to know what goes on between Tiger and his wife behind closed doors. Why does any one care? Is he the only one who cheated? There are two sides to every story. And there are more important issues than a man cheating (news flash: he's not the first nor is he the last). Oprah is nothing more than a money-grabbing, judgmental person who only cares about those she deems worthy. She doesn't need to poke her nose in others business.
Why are some people making Tiger Wood's issue their business? Whta is even the big deal in what Tiger Wood did? We were not shocked! Men do this everyday! both small and big, superstar or no superstar, politicians! name them! Men cheat all the time! Tiger is only human and no human being is perfect. Who did I hear advicing Elin to file a divorce? I wonder the man she will meet tomorrow with an assurance that he won't be another Tiger Wood. We should learn to forgive and work out our differences with our partners.
It comes as no surprise why Tiger has been so vehement about his privacy.
He had a lot to hide!!
When Arnold Schwartenegger was running for Governor and there were allegations of sexual harassment on movie sets, she had Arnold and his wife, Maria, who is also a good friend of Oprah's. She asked him about the harrassment and he gave a non-answer and that was that.
I was very disapointed in Oprah after that. I suspect Arnold did probably do all the things he was accused of and had it been any other male, she wouldn't have treated him so lightly.
Elin is more than entitled to the money. How much is the price tag for HIV transmitted from a dirty cocktail waitress to your husband to you? Or even the thought that a woman would have to get tested for any sort of STD she received from her loving and doting husband is appalling, humiliating, and just plain wrong. Tiger is scum, proved himself to be nothing better than scum, and I hope she takes his floundering a** to the cleaners.
EM.....you are such a racist, you and your AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) friends. If you were following Tiger since his first interview on Oprah you would have realized that he publicly stated on Oprah's Show that he didn't want to be recognized as an African American. He said if he associated himself with African American Ancestry that would leave his mother out. It is absurd to accuse Oprah of being racist. Oprah does not favor only black athlete's or entertainers. She is fair to everyone including YOU. I did not hear Oprah say she wants to be a marriage counselor for him. Would you have said what you said if Diane Sawyer or Barbara Walters wanted to interview him. If OPRAH had him on her show you know you would watch so-STOP FRONTIN'
To all of you who free free to express your opinion, please spare me. Tiger and his wife are ordinary people which falts and failures like any other average person. All your opinion is not worth a rusty penny. I am sure if anybody to see into your personal lives they would find it is not squeaky clean. He that is without sin cast the first stone. Stop being critical and passing judgement on people. Pray for them and let them have the privacy of dealing with and working out their own problems. Forgiveness is the Key.
Yes i agree with you – whenever a woman falls into such situations, the whole world pleads for her- some saying she is a weaker vessel, few says its the devil and others say her friends push her into it- and every body cry for clemence- WHAT About the man, is he not as human as she is. i have a similar story where a pastor from my church had sex with my wife- instead of her pleading for forgiveness ,she is rather seeking to take my property. HELL NO
I bet Letterman is happy. This takes the public pressure off of him. Same think with John Edwards. Who is next?
This is not the first time "celebrities" have been caught doing something "immoral" and it will not be the last. This issue is between Tiger Woods, his wife and their family. There are more important things going on in the world, like the bad economy or getting our TRUE celebrities out of that war and home safely to their families. If the media and Oprah want something to talk about then they should be discussing these issues. Not Tiger Woods, Michael Vick, Angela Jolie and her kids, Paris Hilton and her drama, Oprah's on and off weight gain or the rest of the "so called celebrities" and their drama. They are regular people with the same issues like the rest of the world. Just because they have more monetary assets DON'T make them news worthy.
For the men and women that get themselves involved in these unhealthy relationships, their voiced/stories SHOULD NOT be heard or even cared about. They know the situation before they got invovled and they make personal choices to become a part of immoral behaviors. They are just trying to reek benefits, obtain pitty, and get their 15 minutes of shame.
I can not believe what I am reading here...I've got news for you fox.Oprah is a talk show host.What does it mean ? she will bring in gest that will generate ratings..it is not her job to offer support .
calling Oprah racist? do you want to go check what pourcentage of guest and audience members who appeared on her show her whites vs black.
Right now Tiger's wife is still with him ...so she will not appear on Oprah ,but she divorces him ,I am sure Oprah would have her on her show why? because it will generate ratings?
And to all those hypocrites paasing jugement on Tiger.75% of married men have cheated or cheat on their wifes ,50% of all married women have cheated or will cheat on their spouse-FACT!
wow I can't wait for him to say, "I'm a sex addict " it is today's the number one explaination of such behavior. typical
I'm just glad that all the women that are coming out saying that they had an affair with Tiger are white, do they even realize how stupid they look. America looks down on black women as not being good enough, and as whores, but that sounds reversed here doesn't it. I don't feel sorry for him at all, but then he said he wasn't black anyway, but I bet he knows what being black feels like now. Him being a cheat has nothing to do with him as an athlete, and I will still support him in that role. An his wife she just wants money too, so I hope she gets what she wants, How much do you think your worth Mrs. Woods.
I cannot wait until Oprah leaves Chicago. This woman is so full of herself! Go away already!
This is nobody's business. We know nothing. We have no basis for our assumptions. Ever since CNN started allowing comments on 99% of their stories, I've come to the conclusion we live in a spastic, knee jerk, cruel and vindictive world.
It's no surprise that Oprah wants the interview. I hope she get's it. I would be interested to hear what he has to say; however, I feel mostly for Elin. The biggest let down I think is that he would put his wife, and family in jeopardy of contracting an STD, especially one that could kill her (HIV). Pretty scary. There will probably never be any trust whatsoever in the marriage because of this, so if it does "work out" it will be for the children, and convenience ($$). I am sure she is overwhelmed with opinions at this time. It would be interesting to hear them both speak about his addiction. Although I agree with one of the comments, we are all just so hungry to hear about other people's problems. I don't see that changing in the near future!
I know everyone is saying "whose reaching out to Elin?" I say who would watch that interview. Everyone wants to hear what ridiculous things Tiger might say, but I am not sure Elin would get ratings.
People.,"reaching out" does not mean an attempt to counsel or giving advice. A spokesperson for HARPO has stated that the show has reached out to Tiger Woods' people to have him on her show as a guest.
Opraph or her company are not stating that she want to reach out to "help" him on her show. Of course their show, like ANY OTHER talk show on the air righ now, would want to have him as a guest. As bad as the media has been with this story, talk shows try to have news worthy people on their shows everyday – don't turn this into an opportunity to bash Oprah – I bet they are trying to get Tiger on their shows.
Forget Oprah, Tiger needs to get on Howard Stern and clear this up ASAP
What amazes me is that all this was going on and nobody had a clue...If it was not for the car accident this would still be going on...sad really sad
The only thing worse than Tiger and Oprah are the American people. We don't even realize we are part of the problem. Hero worship, self righteousness, wrath, judgment. We pretend that we are perfect Christians meanwhile we hide our sins and hate. On Sundays we go to church and lie to god. You can try to exclude yourself from judgment but we are all a bunch of fakes. What little sins are you hiding, what dark thoughts are you repressing while you point the finger at someone else? Perhaps you are perfect or you lack the ability to recognize your own faults. It's no wonder half the nation is on anti depressants and the other is on pain killers, drugs and alcohol. We refuse to face the truth. We are all flawed. Those of you who call you selves Christians need to think before you pass judgment but I guess you only care wht Jesus thinks on Sunday.
You people make me sick! Oprah hasn't professed to be an expert on marriage. She is reaching out to a friend and offering him to tell his side of the store. It's what she does for a living. Now shut up and mind your own business. Acting like you are all high and mighty.
why does o need to reach out to elin? the only reason we know her is b/c married tiger woods. she is only newsworthy b/c she used a club on the suv. since they hooked up she has just been the pretty blond behind the ropes, now we are supposed to feel so sorry for her b/c she was cheated on? please! all it does is prove that these people are just as human as the rest of us. how many people (women and men) have been cheated on during a marriage? countless numbers! is it sad that it is playing out in front of the world? yes, but only sad for the kids. elin is a grown woman. if she was married to a regular guy and the same thing happened would she be less embarassed? i have empathy for her but she will be just fine. she wasn't the first wife ever to be cheated on she won't be the last. (i do feel that tiger was wrong. for those thinking i may be "team tiger.")
Oprah the queen bee is trying to run the country, from the White House to the 18th green. I think she needs to retire and ride off into the sunset.
There is no end to where she will go to get publicity for herself. Shame on Oprah. Leave the family alone – maybe they don't want to talk about it on national television! And – they have extended the offer but have not heard back? Way to put the blame on Tiger for "not responding". What a viper Oprah is – she will never miss an opportunity to get HER NAME out there. If she had just contacted them, and never publicized it till they accepted, that would be a different story. But talking about it before they have even received a reply just proves how MEDIA hungry she is. Disgusting.
You know the saying "Men have needs" yuck. She should kick him to the curb. She owes him nothing after all of this. Why do men do this? They always get caught eventually. I think Tiger's career is over. How can he golf a good game now, too many distractions. He is beaten and as he should be. Sorry, no sympathy for Tiger. His kids, thankfully, are too young to know what is going on. Even if she stays with him, how can she ever forget what he did to her. I don't think life could ever be the same again. How would she ever trust him. He screwed up big time..............
I think there are bigger things to worry about in the world other than where Tiger Woods is creeping off too when not with his wife. He is human, no exception to the rule and makes mistakes like anyone else. His wife may experience some humiliation since she also is human but trust me, the money coming thru will keep her there just as it did with Kobe Bryant's wife and anyone else in the public eye. these women really kill me, the problems are between them not us and human greed will keep them where they are, right beside their husbands! I always find the humor in the women they put their trust into when carrying out their affairs, we all know they are usually the ones that leak the info to the tabloids for money. this isnt the first scandal and wont be the last.....They all cheat, even the guy who regretted introducing his wife to him, he cheats too, just no one gives a crap about his affairs since his name isnt as big.
Tiger cheats with 10 woman and all Elin gets is $5 million – considering all he is worth. Good for her for going to look for a home in Sweden!
Also, married men with children are not worth it, and I wish women would have the self respect to say "No thank you" when approached by a married man. And don't tell me you don't know Tiger is married – he is one of the most recognizable faces on earth!
We should leave Tiger and Elin alone and let them resolve their problems. I know how Elin felt since I am going through the same emotional distress. I just found out recently my husband had an affair for about a year. It was hard and difficult for me in the beginning but since we are not a public figure, we are able to handle our situations in a private manner. I feel sorry for their kids since they are the ones who will be most affected by all these messy scandals.
Yeah, lets let Tiger get it off of his chest...the women outside of marriage must be really wearing on him. ( no pun intended )
what does she hope to accomplish?....Let him come on and say, "yeah I have a sex addiction, I also have an addiction to painkillers, blah blah , blah".....she's looking to help him do "damage control" and score the ratings and "1st interview with Tiger"
Oprah is SO full of herself......this interview would be ALL about Oprah and actually very little about Tiger.
He's just another athlete with disposable income, disposable women and I guess also disposable wife and kids.
One "transgression" you can get out of, maybe.....but whats the count up to now? 10?.......take all of his money Elin
Oprah wouldn't talk to Chris Brown because he hit his girlfriend, but she'll talk to the man who cheated on his wife, with a minimum of 10 girls! hhhhmmmm
Shouldn't our so-called heroes with more money than God be held to something of a higher standard? Too bad for his reputation!
Anyone remember King David?
He had it all, lost it all, and still survived to be a great leader.
Don't count Tiger out.
Yes it will be tough for him, but he is a champion and will come back to win many more tournaments.
And before you cast the first stone, take a look in the mirror.
All of this drama....for what? He has yet to speak to anyone about anything...no one knows what happen, to whom it happened or why it happened but the people directly involved...not the news media or any of you speculating about what you think you know. I'm sick of hearing about Tiger and his wife...leave it alone!!!
I like Tiger but he is being a bad example like so many other atheletes. A lot of people have said being the best golfer in the world makes it all ok. I suppose that is an inspiration for others to excel in sports but if I were a supermodel or the like I think I would marry for love and make my own money. People would feel different if it was found out that Elin was the cheater. The names she would be called . . .
I agree with just me – Oprah just wants huge rating going out – stay out of this Oprah. Oprah has no class.
I love these posts by men who say that it's impossible to be monogamous. What a crock of bull. Ever heard of self-control? Parents MUST teach their children self control from the get-go. You don't hand your child a box of Oreo's and say "eat as many as you want, dear". You teach them self control and only take 2 or 3. You don't hand your teenager a credit card and tell them to buy whatever they want and don't worry about the price. You teach them self control. It's the same thing with sexual urges. You learn to say NO. You teach your kids self-respect and to respect others. That's what makes us different from the animal kingdom. We have the ability to control ourselves. But since the schools teach that we descended from monkeys, maybe we shouldn't be so surprised when people act like Tiger Woods.
Money and fame isn't everything. You cannot put a price tag to a broken marriage and family (I don't care how "rich" you are)...it isn't replaceable once it's broken. If you want to add "cheating" in the happy things you've done in your life – that's your own choice...but you might end up living alone, unhappy and....WITHOUT A FAMILY.
LOL at all of the people passing judgement on Tiger. Like a lot of people on this forum are perfect and have made no mistakes??
Sounds like some of you need to look in the mirror and fix your own lives before thinking you have the right to pass judgement on others. By the way, God looks at sin all the same so to Him that little white lie you told a friend is the same as what Tiger did.
I don't think Tiger is right but I don't see how it's any of our business. This is between Elin, Tiger, and God. The rest of the world needs to butt out.
Oprah "reaching" out?? Come on she's only thinking of herself and what the interview would do for her ratings. She's not thinking of him as a personal friend. If she did, she'd mind her own business! Oprah has always been egotistical, self-centered, and selfish. It's all about number 1 in her book. Can't wait for her show to be off the air!!
Nothing like this surprises me anymore. Stories of husband and wife cheating, the other woman (or mistresses and call girls) have been making the headlines ever since King David (in the Bible) laid eyes on another man's wife, Bathsheba, and sent him to his army's front lines where he knew he would be killed, in order to have her.
So Tiger and his wife are splitting up and another woman is taking her place? So What? Who Cares?
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!- How many more people and families' lives have to be broken before we do something about this on-going problem- I bet if there was a law-like a one-year-mandatory jail sentence for screwing around with a married person,- people would think twice!
Tiger, you just proved your human after all. And sadly a putz to boot. You have this gorgeous wife and you do what? Are you just plain stupid? O yes, I forgot...stupid is as stupid does.
I'm thinking she would have wanted to speak to the wife first...right! Oh she can't because Elin "alledgedly" hit Tiger so in Oprah eyes once an abuser always an abuser.
Majority of the blogger's spouses have been involved in affairs. We all have indiscretions, and just because no one may not know, does not mean it is not there. Personally, we all should take care of our own business, and stop pretending that you live in glass houses.
People, we seems to forget Tiger is a man and like all men subject to transgressons. He lustered and got caught. Leave him along and he wll come home wagging his tail behind him. As for Elin, it is her decision to forgive and forget. Le them work it out.
Don't judge a book by it's cover. We all have some kind of problems in life. It seems to me that there is a lot of hate coming out on these coments for Tiger. You people out there need to look into your own back yard before you jump in to some one else's. Why are all these women coming out now. Where were they before all this happened? If you want money go earn it the hard way like get a job instead of trying to bleed someone for it. I am still a fan of Tiger's after all it's the sport of golf that I love not Tiger's business.
So flippin sick of that fat cow Oprah.
The sooner she goes, the better.
The same for Tiger Woods.
Why give him any more time for anything?
Tiger should take his money and his hot pants and fade into the sunset.
Hum, Opra and Dr Phil have now both "Jumped" into the Tabloid area of Sleazy Front Page crap. Dr Phil when he tried to save Brittney and now Opra with Tiger.
Guess Mr Obama has left her nest and she needs someother big name to keep her afloat.
Always thought Opra was of a different light, will she next host the Ladies of Tiger??? furnish the DNA tests for any of Tigers mistresses kids?????
Seems to me Oprah should be reaching out to Tigers Wife, sounds like Tiger has had lots of fun, and im sure that he knew it would come to this someday, his wife is the person people should be reaching out to help.
Oprah reaching out to Tiger does not imply that she's an expert on marriage, it does not imply that she's on his side, it implies that she is a business woman who sees where the next story is and that story is not Elin, it is Tiger. There's nothing to say she hasn't reached out to the both of them anyway. The woman didn't get to where she is by being as dumb as some of you plainly seem to be.
Can we all get over this.... We should allow Mr and Mrs Woods to deal with their family, their way... Who are we to judge or even have a say so! First of all, Tiger is a the best at his profession, but he is human like the rest of us... None of us are without faults and mistakes. Would we have this discussion if he was a bus driver in Florida.. No, we wouldn't even know anything about anything. I can't imagine living my whole life thru this fishbowl. Everyone is so quick to judge! Put everything in perspective, we don't know the real truth in any of this, and nor is it any of the public's business.. People say and do things for their 15min of fame and money, even LIE.. Let this go people. Give the Woods family their privacy!!
It's nice to read a man being compassionate about Elin instead of he philandering husband.
Ava, really, work it out? How so? HE IS THE ONE WHO CHEATED, many, many times. What is there to work out? She is not in it for the money, if she was she would be like Kobe's wife, take the new bauble and act all happy. Pretty clear that isn't happening.
He is an idiot, he humiliated her, she deserves whatever she gets.
As for Oprah, PUUUUUUUUUHLEASE, give it up already does anyone even watch her anymore? She is only in it for the money and fame. She will exploit this for a final ratings push, nothing more. If she really was a friend of Tiger's she would leave this alone as she would know how he values his privacy.
WHO CARES????? HOW ABOUT THE ECONOMY? HOW ABOUT WE MAKE THE STREETS SAFER??? HOW ABOUT WE INPROVE UNEMPLOYMENT??? HOW ABOUT WE READ TO OUR KIDS AT NIGHT AND TEACH THEM NOT TO ACT LIKE CRIMINALS?? GET REAL AMERICA WERE SO PRESSSED FOR DUMB UNIMPORTANT CRAP!!!
a rich person consolling another rich person? obla- di-bla-da!
Tiger obviously is a human being that has an addiction. He was never perfect and he requires help for his addiction as others who have had similar problems have sought. We should not pass judgement upon him and try to understand why he made those mistakes. Obviously, he was weak and took advantage of all the eye candy that he saw. Now he has to face reality and explain to his spouse why he betrayed her and broke his marriage vows. Forgive him and move on. No person is perfect and the Bible says all have sinned. He and his family requires our prayers.
I agree with almost all of you! Tiger is yet just another case of being thoughtless, tempted, and interested in fulfilling his own needs and not fulfilling his marriage vows. Where are the men who really mean what they say in their marriage vows? If men are not meant to be committed to one woman their entire adult life, according to one responder, why do men get married? Is is all about the sex? And, then after the excitement in the marriage settles down and it is back to everyday living, is that when men feel they have the lattitude to "wander?" Where are men with integrity? Are there any out there anymore?
Oprah is not reaching out to Tiger she is just trying to get another high flying story on Tiger Woods. I mean Tiger would be an idiot if he was to go on Oprah and give her the ratings that she wanted. The best thing really is if Tiger comes out and states the truth to the media and let's people know that being who he is is not an easy thing to do. I mean I have seen so many people go from rgas to riches and they completely change who they are as a person. One thing is for sure and time and time again it is money does not create happiness and from what I have seen it is so true.
Tiger needs to take time off and find out who he is as a person not as a celebrity. Being human is not that easy and when your life is always in the media and you make this amount of money it truly changes who you are as a person. Heck, look at Barack Obama or any person that has become super famous things change and you change as a person. Barack went from saying that he would do so much for this country and now he is president and he could care less about the american public just whatever benefits him in a position of power.
The simple fact is get off your high chair and come back to reality and remember what is important to you as money, fame and greed many times leads you down the wrong path in your life. Look in the mirror and do a reality check away from the power and greed and everything that has made you something that you should not be in the first place. Power should come with a place a special place to help people that need help you are lucky and as hard as it is again be true to yourself.
How about instead of bashing Tiger and Oprah...why don't we pray for the children that are having to deal with this??????? Their father is being called all sorts of things...their mother is obviously distraught and upset and they are having to see this at a ypung age...who only knows what else they are having to see and deal with.....GOD PLEASE PROTECT THOSE CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ava and those other women who thinks she should give him a shot...why?! He showed her no respect and made a mockery of his marriage to her. Five million is nothing for what that man is worth and she deserves a hell of a lot more for the pain and embarrassment that he caused. It's pretty obvious who is and isn't married on here.
I hate to see the media go after him so hard, but it is a snowball effect once something happens. It opens a can of worms, and then it goes on till it destroys lives. He is not the only person to have done something wrong or made a wrong choice. But, once it is cot on TV for most, there lives starts falling to pieces. All that can make a buck off his fame. What about the privacy of letting family deal with this as a family, some things canbe healed if the media woul back off, not for money. The expense of his children and family being picked apart and this can cause people to do things that they would not normally do if they were left alone to work out as a family and in thier home. If people are not helping then let it alone. Kat – Oklahoma
These women knew he was married if he were not a billionaire they would not give him a second look. They slept with him having an agenda with dollar signs in their eyes.
By the very fact that Oprah has invited Tiger to her show says a lot about her. Just use your imagination, you can figure it out.
All of you are worst than the media with all the scenerio's you have painted, if he has not cheated , he has now. I am quite sure Tiger and wife can handle there own. Tiger really needs to pay each of you a salary.
Enough all ready. Let Tiger and Elin deal with this situtation in the privacy of their own home. They are embarrased enough and have enough issues and stress to handle. I think it is sad that we as a society thrive on other peoples misfortune. And as for Opra.......You should be ashamed of your self for trying to cash in this.
I am sure there is a confidentiality clause in the pre-nup that does not allow Elin to speak to the media.
Bottom line: If Tiger goes on Oprah, THE WORLD WILL WATCH!
She's gone from a nanny to VERY wealthy! Even with the "embarassment", she will be okay....do you think all of that specific language about her receiving larger payouts if he was unfaithful was put in there for nothing. She already knew the percentages before she married him. Still a very big "come up" for her......she hasnt even gotten to child support yet.
Why? Because she's rich and he's rich? What true interest does Oprah have vested in the Woods saga. Is she insuring the first interview ? If so that's a sad affair of a way to try to get involved in something so personal of someone else's. Prayers at distance works wonders ! Doesn't change the way I feel about Oprah or Tiger nobody's perfect and I haven't a Heaven or hell to put anyone in.
God Bless you all
Why wouldn't Elin get her money now - who knows if he will have that kind of money going forward if he loses his endorsement contracts. Her Mama didn't raise no dummy.
Everybody is talking about 10 mistresses. That's just the tip of the iceberg. There will be more and if you think for one minute that there aren't a bunch of tour players holding their collective breath about this, your wrong. PGA tour players (for the most part) are a bunch of arrogant, pre Madonna, stuffed shirts and maybe this humbling of the Tiger will cause a few of them to actually interact with the fans that pay their way. 90 players on the PGA tour made a million or more of your dollars last year. Would be really be so tough for them to interact with the people paying that bill?
As far as the Oprah thing goes..........WHO CARES.
If Oprah was really Tiger's personal friend she would reach out to him privately – not on national TV. Just like when "she" gave away cars actually donated by General Motors it's all for publicity and we keep buying the fairy tale. Tiger may be a wonderful golfer but he's a lousy husband and role model for his children. It.s bad enough for Elin to be cheated on but so humiliating to have the whole world know every time a new bimbo is named.
Oprah, Oprah, Oprah...I will be so glad when she is off the air..2012 can't get her soon enough!!
Oh, so the mighty Oprah will be talking to Tiger now? Will she defend his deplorable acts the same way she defended Vick?
everyone here has too much time on their hands. Oprah and the Dr. show both are playing on people's hardships attempting to problem solve in 60 min. These shows are the replacement for the pointless day time soaps that attract sheep. never wathced any of these as it is a waste of network programming, but I did forget to say"follow the money"
cheers to all and apick up a book and expand your tiny brains.
Do you really think getting a sack load of money is going to make it all better for Elin?! For crying out loud, Tiger is the father of her children. I can't imagine that all she cares about is getting is cash. She has to be devastated. She has been betrayed by the one person in the world who was supposed to be on her side for the rest of her life. Yes, she'll get money but it won't heal the gaping wounds he has left in her. Three nights ago they had some bimbo on t.v. who talked about his prowess in bed. It made me want to vomit. I can only imagine what it must make her feel. The more that comes to light the more I want to smack him!
Really, who ISN'T reaching out to Tiger Woods right now. I'm sure all the media outlets are clamouring to get the first interview, although it will probably be Saint Oprah.
My prayers are with the wife and kids.. God Bless!!!
My advice to Tiger....get a new PR team!
Tiger is not the victim. He doesn't need to appear on a talk show.
Yes, Oprah should interview Tiger...and Elin. As human as he is...this becomes big news because he was such a private man. It has become sensational but that's what happens when you're FAMOUS! Except for the way he played his game, nobody knew who he was or what he stood for. He should be given the chance to mend his image. There are sooooo many political figures/Hollywood stars, sports figures etc that are in the same boat.
This is a family issue and should be treated as such, the press just won't let this go because this is giving the networks big ratings. Its a shame this is so news worthy. Men have affairs everyday! there are two small children involve here, they are too young to be shuffled around, and be without a dad. They should work this out for the sake of the children. having an affair doesn't mean he is not in love with his wife. Look at America today, a large percentage of the children are from broken homes, they are dysfuctional their parent re-married and doesn't have time for them, hence the therapy. His wife own no one anything she needs to process this her way.
Yes – the wife may be getting a lot of money out of this and never have to worry about finances. What she has to deal with though is the embarassment of course, but far worse for a mother is the hurt of her children. They have to live with a borken home and the fact that they have a dog for a father.
Reaching out to Tiger, or reaching out for ratings? A "personal friend" would not put a friend on the hot seat on national television. Oprah, what a great friend you'd make!
Elin has been humilated, even a beautiful woman can feel pain, betrayal, shame... Oprah is just an opportunistic parasite on other people's miseries.
"reaching out" to Tiger (I like Cheetah!) oh come on, he has "reached out and touched" a few too many! He needs no sympathy, he needs a psychiatrist–sick, ego-centric, narcissist. How the heck could he be such a amoral jerk to the mother of his two children? Poor lady. She deserves the "reaching out", sympathy, and YES the money (she'll probably - and the kids–need a lot of therapy to re-learn their human worth). I'd say something else about him, but it wouldn't be fit to print...
Wow, I love Oprah Winfrey. But being on her show or any news show is a total mistake! Tiger keep it private! None of your person life is our business! Seek private professional help only!
What a surprise! I think Oprah and Dr. Phil should get together and examine each other's heads. They think they are above all and solve the world's problems...well guess what...You're not God, mind your own business, anything to boost your ratings. Geez!!!
So, infidelity occurred within a marriage of a sports superstar. How's that song go... "No one knows what goes on behind closed doors." First of all, it's a two-way street. Why is the media giving these fame-seeking women the time of day? All they are doing is looking for a piece of the pie and ten minutes of fame. Something I found disappointing is the fact that these women were not thinking when they approached the media. These women were all just as wrong as Tiger. They were not thinking about the repercussions and what this would do to Tiger's wife, children and his Mother? Some things are better left unsaid. This is a private matter that the media should leave alone for Tiger and Elin to work thru. How would all of you like your indescretions aired across the world for all others to judge?
First of all she is probably not giving advice on marriage, she is affordinf him a platform to begin rebuilding his image. If he is going to do that successfully he needs Elin on the show with him to show they are working through this together as a team.
For all you stupid self rightous guys who act like Tiger has just committed the unforgivable sin, I would love to look into your past. Affairs of the heart have been around since the begiining of time (King David and Bethsheba). Tiger is not the first and will not be the last. I suspect most of the men hating on Tiger, if in his shoes would fail the same test...so shut up! You sound just like the Republicans who villified Clinton yet they has skeletons in their own closest (Sanford, Gingrich).
poor tiger, the lesson learned here is not to put your fake image so high in the clouds. his fall from grace is from space and that is a long way down. Reputation with women, gone for forever. Men will accept him back though. Maybe a life coach could get him back on track. As for all who say he is a sex addict, sorry not biting. He is just doing what so many do that have that kind of power. Just look at your polititcans at every level of government.
The cumulative knowledge one gains as a talk show host or news anchor shouldn't be underestimated. I wonder what knd of talk show host Walter Cronkite wuld have been. We trusted him for the reliable truth. But when you mix gender and race into the recipe for success and notoriety, you inevitably run into trouble. Tiger did what a lot of us men do, He screwed up. I don't agree with what he did, but it was not a crime, just the breaking of a vow (promise). And somehow, I doubt his wife is a total angel. Oprah should stay out of it. Nobody seemed to care when my wife of 16 years left me while I was in Desert Storm. She got the buy and I got the shaft. Maybe I was having too much fun with the camels and the bullets!
Of course Oprah wants an interview but I wonder will she be tough on Tiger like she is on all men who cheat or will she baby him cause of his celebrity status and the fact they are friends....will be interesting to see......I would bet on the latter!
Who cares that another man has so many affairs? Of course, because it is Tiger it is a "big deal". People should let him be to deal with this mess alone. This is a private matter between him and his wife. If Oprah can get him for an interview, that's her business as well!
The world is falling apart around us and everyone is worried about Tiger's life. Let's get on with our own lives......LOL
All this feeling sorry for his wife needs to stop. Why would anyone sign a prenup before they say I do? Because, there was no love. She was in it for the status and money. So once money is the primary focus before you begin a relationship, this is what you get. She is no victim. Yes, Tiger shouldn't have cheated. He should've waited the 10 years and been done with her. Now he needs to divorce and get on with his life. She's served her purpose. She's given him kids which she will bank on for the rest of their lives. She needs no simpathy. So, everyone need to stop pretending that she loved this man. It was all business from the start. Prenup=only financial gain. Don't forget he was the one with the fame, status, and money.
Of course Oprah is reaching out to Tiger – there is NOTHING she won't do for face time – even though she has gained enough fame and power.
Going on Oprah doesn't guarantee a help to anyone's "image"...Tiger and his family will be fine if people mind their own business and let them heal as a family...there is nothing he needs to tell on Oprah or any other show for that matter....
She'll do anything for ratings. Oprah, leave them alone.
Sure make his acts more famous!!! There are bigger issues is the world than who Tiger is sleeping with and why etc. Why doesn't Oprah find some compassion and reach out to his wife? Give us a break-leave already
Is anyone reaching out to Tiger's wife?!!? Really?!!? When a woman marries a wealthy man and the cuts off all "marital favors" just so he'll step out...then what happens? She collects a bunch of cash! aww....we should feel so sad for a calculating gold digger...What is wrong with you people? Yes, he should have divorced her and paid up front, whatever the pre-nup said. However, I believe he was trying to keep the money that HE EARNED by sneaking around trying not to get caught because either way, divorce or getting caught...he has to pay her. What's the most sad is Tiger wants to pay her to stick around for two more years...heck with that! Cut the gold digger loose and be more selective next time!!!
I love Oprah but I think she's meddling. If she is Tiger's friend then she will reach out and offer her friendship in private! You don't offer to drag your friends dirty laundry on tv for millions of viewers to watch. I think this is poor taste on her part. She doesn't need the ratings, so this is unnecessary.
I also agree with a previous post that someone should be reaching out to his wife. She's suffering humiliation on behalf of herself and her children.
I think this is ridiculous. We all know this is about the money. what does Oprah have to do with this? Does everyone in the world expect her to make everything better?
How can his image be revamped? He cheated on his wife with at least NINE women, what can he possibly say for damage control? Of course, this has everything to do with Oprah being a great friend and not ratings.
What I'm 'sick of' are the boneheads who keep saying 'it's no one's business'...yada yada yada...
When you are a national figure who accepts endorsement money, it IS everyone's business.
Wow, some of you assume a lot. In the first place, she won't be able to take him to the cleaners for "500M" because they had a prenup. She just renegotiated for 75M, but that's only if she stays with him for 2 more years, which it appears she may not. In the second place, CA is a no fault state, so she couldn't get extra due to the adultery even if they DIDN'T have the prenup. Now, what he's going to have to pay for child support is another issue. That could be quite large, but that will be for the kids, not Elin, and will likely have a large portion deposited into trusts for them.
I'm suprised at the comment that men are not monogamous by nature... Must be coming from someone who likes to screw around a lot on his mate. Anyone can be monogamous. It's called self-control, and both men and women can have it when they want to. I'd heard Tiger had none from some friends who worked at one of the golf courses he frequented, and that he's rude, demanding, and a prima donna. I'd hoped they'd just gotten stiffed on a tip and were pissed, but apparently not.
I think some of you people commenting should get a life, not Oprah! Getting interviews is what she does! Hello!!! What, Would you rather Barbara Walters get the sit down instead? All you Oprah haters, where is your life? I bet most of you commenting has cheated. That is if someone would have you. This is a family matter, however, Tiger is a public figure. So, if Oprah can get the interview good for her!
Cheating is a moral issue not against the law. Tiger cheated on his wife and while that is a terrible thing if in fact she hit him she is the one that broke the law not him. i know people feel sorry for her for getting cheated on but it happens to regular people every day. That being said why is she not in trouble for assault?
Why can't people just leave this guy alone.....including Oprah. She of all people show show some disgression.My neighbours might have "transgressions" in their lives too but you don't see them plastered over the papers and tv shows....for God's sake this guy just wants privacy....is that too much to ask? Oprah?????
Why would Oprah want to make Tiger a higher priority than Elin? Is gender solidarity being overridden by commercial priorities? I think so.
Thanks for that bit of humor! I just had to take a break from managing my financial empire (it's been grueling ever since I left neurosurgery for Wall Street) to express my appreciation. See, I can do it too! I can pretend to be anything I want. Not that anyone will believe it, but I can pretend that part too! GET A REAL LIFE, FOR CHRIST'S SAKE !!!
I don't feel the least bit sorry for the wife.. The only thing Tiger did that was wrong was to foolishly marry this woman. Does any one here actually believe this woman married Tiger because she loved him..If he was flat broke and sucked at golf he'd still be single..
i think it would really be nice to hear oprah have a chat with tiger...yea i look forward to it..
I admire Tiger for all that he has done. But Tigers action are consistant with steroid use. Especially if it's injectable Testosterone. It increases your sex drive a bunch and it effects your decision making process. And I can only imagine how Tiger would have taken it if Elin had affairs with 10 defferent men while he was playing in events. That would drop his scores if he was worried about what was going on at home. One of the reason I stay faithful is because I couldn't handle it if she wasn't. Whats good for the goose is good for the gander. If he doesn't love her... truly love her he should let her know. No one should be married for the image.
I like Tiger's game. He's a good athlete. But he is a poor husband and father. Now that he's exposed perhaps he can get some help in fixing himself or admitting what he is and moving on. No need to hide anymore. Fish, or cut bait son.
His father must be rolling in his grave! Man up Tiger and steer clear of Oprah. I'm beginning to think Elin has known about this for a long time and just snapped. The list keeps growing and growing and growing.........
All of you are a freaking joke !!!!! for centuries MONEY ,POWER and FAME have attracted women from all walks of life . From Kings, to Presidents !!!!!! Most of you are just angry that it wasnt you ,your sister, cousin ,friend ,or maybe even your wives that he was cheating with so that your broke pathetic asses could cash in also . Rich and Powerful men have women ,because women throw themselves at them . Your garbage man doesnt have a mistress!, ill bet you 10 to 1 ; but ill lay you 50 to 1 the president or chairman of your company does !!!!! GROW UP!!!!!! . TIGER should pay her the 24 mil in the prenup ,give her the house and move down the street with the next one .
Get real everyone! This is one way for Tiger to come clean in the eyes of the public and his wife. He is a huge public figure and has damaged firstly his family and his supporters. Lets face it, he needs to be humbled by this, take responsibility to show everyone this is something he needs to address to be a healthier husband, father and individual. It is someway a start at taking resposibility.
Oprah reaching out? Does she need a date???
For all you people that say Elin will be fine, she has been paid a great amount of money...
Money doesnt buy you happiness nor take away the pain and embarrassment of a broken marriage.
My prayers are with Elin...
As far as Oprah is concerned... STAY OUT OF IT
It's sad that we set such over the top expectations for celebs. They are people with flaws, insecurities, and disfunctionality just like everyone else. No, they are not perfect! Who said that they were supposed to be...just because they have fame or money?
Are we so inadequate as individuals that we have only celebs to look up to as role models? I think not.
Just think about it for a moment. Would you feel that your community is owed an explanation about your "transgressions" against your spouse...or would you rather that your transgressions be worked out/ not worked out between you and your spouse?
maybe Oprah should reach out to her sexual abusers and have them come clean for ratings...her hypocrisy makes me sick
Oprah should go from the news and our lives for good. Who is she to advice on anything? She's not an example to follow, she's just an american dream and americans need to get a reality check on who they pick as their role models, money isn't everything in life!!!!
I amsure that Elin Woods is welcome to come to the show. If there is a show. Oprah's efforts to allow her show to be used as a vehicle to afford Tiger Woods an opportunity to MAYBE SHUT THE REST OF US UP ABOUT HIS PERONAL BUSINESS is commendable. They are suppose to be friends. Friends don't just abandon friends because they are in trouble. It's a shame that Tiger did not see this coming. A black man with this much fame and money is STILL NOT tolerated in America. Yes, we are so magnanimous we LET a black man occupy the oval office during some of our worse times. Who will get the blame when the obvious comes true, not everything willbe fixed in four years. He did something wrong. Why is this any of our business ???? We won't be satisfied until we do to him what we did to Michael Jackson.
I feel for his wife too,Em why does race have to be an issue here????Men cheat all the time regardless of color (colour).Because of who he is of course its a big deal,what the hell was he thinking?
Its there business,handle this with dignity,and what about his children?
Think about them please because Tiger sure as hell did not.Selfish Man.
Oh yes, Oprah know sooooo much about marriage! If she does get the 'stray cat' on her show, it will be more for ratings that anything else. Time Oprah realized she is not the 'be all and end all' and mind her own business!
Please let Tiger rest how amny men cheats on their wives, its their nature.
it is curious that Oprah feels the need to rehabilitate Tiger's reputation, rather than reach out to Elin, Tiger's faithful wife and the mother to his children, who has clearly been done wrong. I'm sure that racial solidarity has nothing to do with it though, right?
I don't talk about it.
You couldn't pay me to ever watch Tiger golf again. He's an American scumbag.
Though Tiger is a moron for not only cheating but for getting caught and bringing the humiliation home and onto his wife...all you need to know about Elin is the $$ deal she immediately started negotiating the moment those rumors hit....reportedly $50mil to stay an additional 2 years...in it for the money much?
All that money, all that fame and loveless relationships...those kids are doomed.
Because your wife is beautiful does your marriage is perfect, what a myth, the most beautiful woman I have ever dated almost completely destroyed my life! While all my friends where telling me you are crazy to leave her, I could not get away from her fast enough. Beauty my dear friends means nothing over the long haul: a life companion, a partner and a friend, means much much more! if she is beautiful in your eyes fine but if that is all, you can keep her!
Excellent comments. It's one thing to have ONE affair...but it looks like multiples over the years. I don't know anyone (Elin) can overcome that combined with the public humiliation of all the skanks coming out of the woodwork. I think a separation and counseling for now.. and the rest one day at a time.
does any one know why this is happening, there must be a reason for this nonsense. There is something wrong and his affairs are the just the symptoms of something much deeper. Lots of men to do this and there is usually a reason" from Clinton to Edwards to Sanford, to Kennedy, what is the root cause of it. Most likely a bad marriage, which we cannot see from the outside can we?
maybe Tiger and Elin need to be on Dr. Phil instead. Maybe Montel Williams. Better yet, Jerry Springer and Elin can redo her golf swing on Tiger on national TV!
Is this really so shocking? Pro Athlete's and especially the best in the world are TYPE A personalities to the 10th degree! So add in fame, fortune, beautiful women throwing themselves at them, etc. etc. etc and I'm pretty sure even a large percentage of not so Type A's may endulge. Who knows what's happening in the marriage behind closed doors and it's none of anyones business.
This news is a hell of a lot less appalling then a preacher, priest or politician who goes around preaching righteousness then goes out and cheat's, molests etc. And then is forgiven because they've repented and asked for forgiveness. For God sake, Clinton was getting BJ's and probably more in the Oval office. To me that's 1000000 times worse then Tiger cheating. If anyone's supposed to be a role model it should sure as heck be a president as opposed to a pro athlete.
Another thing. Not that Tiger was hit with a golf club, but I've heard quite a few women saying he deserved to be beaten with a golf club and would have done the same thing or worse if they found out their husband was cheating on them. This is hypocritical BS because if the tables were turned we'd have some real outrage and they sure as hell wouldn't be making fun of it on SNL with a skit with golf club over Elins head.
Do Tigers transgressions make him a horrible person. Most likely not. Adulterer Yes! Somewhat stupid – Yes, anyone that famous has gotta know they're gonna get caught.
What's the problem here? Apparently everyone on the tour knew what Tiger was doing so I'm sure it wasn't a surprise to his wife and family. Tiger Woods is married . . . and available!
This is a comment referencing to what Ava said. It's not about the money!!! Who cares if Elin is getting $5 million? She has been betrayed. Isn't there a price for honesty in this? If she really loved him, she wouldn't take the money? yes, right. She should file for divorce..and then take the money.
Don't take me as judgmental, I am not. I judge myself before judging others. Tiger Woods is one the best, if not the best golfer ever!
My prayers are with Tiger and Elin. I pray he gets the help he needs.
Please, This woman is a baby sitter/nanny brought to Tiger by a Swedish golfer friend who thought his nanny/baby sitter was a great wife for Tiger. She married a billionaire and went from baby sitter to super rich. I am not crying for her. Plus this has been known forever, she just did not want to leave the money, so she stayed in and continued to have insurance babies. I say take the money and go get the man you really want. And for Tiger oh well, he is getting his just rewards. "The Chickens Have in fact come home to roost". Now if the media can move on before ten more scraggly blonde buxom minimum wage servant whores pop up. What is the deal with him and the minimum wage women for wife and mistress????Puleezzzeee!!!
Sorry Tiger, they gotcha !!
I am praying for the Woods family, but if Tiger's wife hit with the golf club... good for her. Personally Elin did the right thing confronting Tiger and then calling the other woman. Elin hold your head up high and keep that fool in CKECK!!!! He will do it again!!!!!!! Tiger, needs to seek professioal help! This man has issues that are very deep. Remember his statement "there is a lot of pressure on him." Tiger maybe good at golf but HE IS STILL HUMAN!!! WE all make MISTAKES and have fallen short. Just Tiger was caught cheating on Elin with several women. Tiger, I hope you used protection! The only reason it was made public ... the fool hit the tree!!!! As for the media... this is news.
Poor Tiger. He needs someone to sit down with so he can tell us all how he "transgressed" by screwing around with multiple women.
She couldn't give two sh*ts about Tiger and his wife. It's all about ratings, all about Oprah, all about Obama...the list is endless. These hypocritical sociopathic narcissistic bafoons. They make me sick.
To the person who said "what they do in the privacy of their own home is their own business": I believe the wife got upset because she suddenly found out what the husband was doing OUTSIDE of the home, without her knowledge. He was the one who made himself a PR image of the "role model" so he should have lived up to it, in private. If he wanteds to be a p--y hound, which he obviously is, he should be like George Clooney, and just not get married. Oh, wait a minute, maybe having one or two kids adds to your "marketability," who woulda guessed?
So she went after him with a golf club, which may make her an "iron maiden" (ha), but who can blame her? If you do the math, she wasvery young, about 19 when he married her, and here she is with a brand new baby. To add insult to injury (ppun intended) now the number of mistresses, as of today, (12/8), or alleged mistresses, has risen to about nine, last time I read the news–I assume the "alleged" women have verification, such as text messages from his phone, and what ajust plainn stupid man for THAT, to actually text them. And they are getting paid off, one by one, big-time, make no mistake about that. Hence the recent cancelled press conference after one mistress hired a famous attorney–it is all about $$, bucks–"sicko," as Michael Moore said (but not in that context). Yuck. He does not know or respect the meaning of marriage.
As to whether she should leave him or not: certainly she should. Just like Hillary should have kicked out bill (and I like bill, but he couldn't keep it zipped, either)–oh, wait a minute, you can't kick a President out of the White House! My final word: a Tiger never changes his stripes. I just made that up to suit the occasion, although actually someone else did say that before me! If he would cheat that many time withinn a few years of marrying, using the same old line with all of them: "marriage isn't all it's cracked up to be"–the wife should get the message and get out. and if she gets half the cash, she is entitled to it, with the children especially–pre-nups are made in heaven to be broken by smart attorneis. Wish I was hers....
Oprah better watch out inviting Tiger on her show because she is female and because they will both be on a couch!!!!
Tiger has too many golf balls in his head
Tiger is a bone head, a num nuts an adulterer and a liar to his family
and he deserves the public humiliation. Did he really think all these women would keep quite, he is Idiot no. 1
Wow. I feel so very sad for the children, just like I did when Steve McNair was murdered by his mistress. Can you imagine having your parents' private affairs plastered all over every existing international media outlet? The adults signed on for the circus, but the kids are just innocent bystanders. No matter how old they are or will become, people will ask them questions about this stuff for a long time. They should have much more pleasant things to concentrate on and experience, coming from families with such fortunes–hope their opportunities aren't ruined by the "sins of the fathers". What a bitter shame.
I think the press has totally converted this experience into something bad. They just will not let it go.
OMG....it all boils down to that Tiger is a DOG! Elin should leave with the two kids and start a whole new life. Oprah on the other hand is just a nozy broad who wants to boost her ratings. Who is she to talk to Tiger...does she actually think that it will resolve things between Elin and Tiger. Oprah, give it up...
Well folks this is what happens in America and the perpetual worship of celebrities.
Oprah is just "reaching out" not for comforting but more for the ratings and the obvious money those ratings will bring in because viewers have nothing better to do than to watch an over hyped talk show host have a golf pro who has fooled around.
Then there's Tiger Willams - a golf pro who has fooled around that might go to Oprah not for the comfort but for the repairing of his reputation and therefore keeping his sponsorships.
What would be next? Tiger on stage with one of the whores during one of those Maury Povich's "You're the daddy of my baby!" soppy
talk show episodes?
America, time to get a life and away from this soppy episode with
Tiger Willams and publicity seeking Oprah. Neither of the two need the money.
I admire Tiger for his magic in his golfing skill,his sex skills have never been a concern of mine . His indiscretion in his personal life is unfortunate .
I can't believe everyone is in such an uproar about a man cheating on his wife....It happens everyday. Men, and women both do it. Both are role models to their families for the most part and make bad choices in life. Let Oprah have Tiger on her show. Who really cares. Maybe while Tiger was out on the prowl, so was his wife....Tiger is the only one that got caught as of now...
Their is nothing good about cheating on your wife/ Why do we have Tiger on such high reguard.Tiger showed what a ffol looks like with money. I would leave him take the money and ran.He is messed up in so many ways he has trouble with his skin color and you see he hates black women all the women are white aand skinny and call girls or something like that He sleeping with lowlifes Where are the big time stars (famous names that he is sleeping with) How many more women are comm-ing foward Stick to playing golfand get off your high horse Oprah pls go home before 2011
This is all rather unbelieveable, listening to all you people wish ill on a person who clearly simply made a mistake, and applying double standards. If this were the other way around, you'ld all be claiming she ought to have cheated on him because he's obviously an insensitive jerk who didn't treat her right, and you'ld be treating the golf-club swinging allegations as proof that he's a violent criminal who ought to be cheated on, divorced, be the subject of restraining orders, thrown in jail, and taken for everything he had, including his children
His wife should have an affair, she is hot. There would be a line 20 miles long to have wild sex with her. He wouldn't like that would he. Tiger made a big mistake and hopfully for the kids sake they can work through his horny mistakes...................
Who cares what this guy does. People should remember he just hits a ball around and gets paid large amounts of money. In the scheme of things nothing the guy does is important.
As for this Opera (Oprah) don't watch her solution solved.
"Can't buy me lo-ove... money can't buy me love."
HE cheated (on his wife & 2 beautiful babies)...NO excuses!!! There's NOTHING Oprah can do to change that fact!
This is a private matter between Tiger and his wife. We should respect their privacy and let them sort things out. Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones....
Everybody talks about Tiger being the bad guy in this...So I guess that means those woman were the only women in the world who didn't know he was married huh? The truth of the matter is, those women have no respect for the union of MARRIAGE...PERIOD. Men can't cheat by themselves someone has to bear equal responsibility...so when are we going to start trashing those women who made themselves so readily available to him knowing that he's a married man. It takes two to tango...sometimes even more...WOMEN TAKE SOME RESPONSIBILITY for the womens part in home-wrecking. I'm not saying that what Tiger did was right....however... If the women didn't willingley and readily participate NONE OF IT WOULD HAVE EVER HAPPENED.
why would anyone think that Tiger would be any different than any other male athlete. He's young, making a lot of money, and everyone caters to his ego. He's human!!! Even if he wasn't the type of guy to cheat, with everything that he has at his disposal including inexperience, that's pretty much the natural result. The thing about it is there are plenty of out here that have been patiently waiting for something like this to happen. Maybe they will get their wish..."G-d bless'em".
When and where was that picture taken? Looks like Tiger just made a bad shot at a tournament! Is there any relevance to the article?
Is it me or do most of the "frowning" Tiger Woods pictures on CNN seem to have nothing to do with the content of their articles?
CNN should offer some captions as to when these pictures are taken! Ridiculous.
I wonder what Accenture would be thinking right now. Their caption "Be a Tiger" doesn't sound too great after this fiasco.
you know 75% of couples cheat on each other. tiger woods is a normal human being and one of millions of people who have cheated on their significant other. BIG DEAL get over it and move on!!! he is the best golfer in the world and nothing can stand in his way on the course!!!
Let's be real. Landing Tiger would be the biggest scoop in the history of TV, and Oprah is probably the safest place for Tiger to land. And, Tiger is eventually going to have to come (more) clean. I'd say his PR people can negotiate something that is more on his teams than just about any other outlet would give him. I bet every single word would be scripted - Oprah's and Tiger's - but you'll never know it. This is the greatest quid pro quo possibility in history.
I have no interest in listening to anything Tiger has to say (or Oprah either, for that matter). Life is about choices and relationships and Tiger is a failure at both.
Oprah – good grief. She is not what makes the sun rise and set. She is just another person like you and me only she has tons of money. Big deal – and Tiger Woods. Who really care??? Shame on him!
Get Over It.
Its funny how some of you have said that we need to stay out of Tiger and Elin's business, but you were the ones reading this article. So apparently it intrests you. You stooped low enough to read it. And for all of you bashing Tiger for cheating, I am sure half of you have cheated yourself. Dont be quick to judge when you havent looked in the mirror. Tiger is just another human being. We all make mistakes. Its not like he killed someone. Oprah has better people to have on her show right now than him.
Now that's pathetic.
You're going to reach out to someone who totally disgraced not only himself; but his parents and his family.
Yet you didn't want to interview Hip Hop musicians who make a difference.
Its about time you signed off the air.
Why would anyone wanna interview her? He's the one with the money and at least he was smart enough to get a pre-nup. which really comes in handy now. In all likely hood this will blow over and he'll be back to playing golf and winning but I expect he'll really go private even moreso. The man plays a mean game of golf.
I for one am so tired of hearing about this...topic. David Letterman, Tiger, etc..etc...
Who cares? This is their personal lives. The media needs to leave them alone. They are just opening the door for 10 more whores to come out to claim 15 seconds of fame.
Tiger is ugly.
Also, Money doesn't make up for a broken heart. She deserves everything she can get. She has been forced into hibernation to protect his image. Never been allowed to speak for herself without his presence. I'd like to hear her side.
Sounds like a good Springer story to me.
Tiger Woods is such a hypocrite. He built this image of the super-clean family man, and genius golfer that was phony. Elin Nordegren is the real victim here, she's so unfortunate, and I feel so sorry for her. She was having Tiger's babies while he was making out in weird spots with every cocktail waitress who said "yes". He's a sick man. I cant fathom what would make Elin stay with a man who might give her diseases where the sun don't shine.
Tiger is a slut. He could have brought home diseases to his wife–not something you do to a person you love. Elin, get yourself a checkup, take the kids, and clean him out. He's a loser who lived a lie.
Oprah's all about the ratings. If she had any regard for Tiger's privacy she wouldn't go near the notion of an interview. Having said that, getting Tiger to sit down would be considered a major coup. Just don't expect anything more than puff-ball questions and a carefully orchestrated PR event.
Private matter. Don't need to know. Neither do you.
Why so much hate? Tiger puts his pants on just like any other man! He's not the first to cheat and he will not be the last. Elin knew what she was getting into when she married him. She also knew that once she signed those papers that she would be set for life. Get real people, she is far from pretty. So, she definitely hit the jackpot! At what point before she married the man that she supposedly loved did $300 or $500 million come into play? For the commentor who said that she raised his kids, they are both still babies. By the time they are old enough to know about this, their parents will have moved on, either together or apart. Either way, I'm sure they'll be fine. Since when does it take $300 million to raise two kids? Some women can't even get $300 and you people have the nerve to say this woman deserves $300 million. What about the women who have really been abused?
Oprah, reach out to him in private if you truly are a friend. Anything else is a lie.
Anything for the ratings Oprah. What a self serving joke. If Tiger does one thing right it will be to avoid this leach.
For me the only interest is what the final tally of women will be. We have a sweep on at work – I picked thirty, five of which are porn stars, and one being the wife of Vijay Singhs caddy. Can't wait to read the news tomorrow!.
I feel for Elin, she shouldn't have to go through this. However, you can't convince me that she has not known about this for a long time. I really don't think your husband could have multiple affairs and you wouldn't know. I hope that she and Tiger can get some serious counseling if not just to get their heads straight at this point.
To Ava: Your comment was one of the most absurd and unintelligient responses I have ever heard or read regarding this whole mess. Who is the victim here? Who spent the last several years under the illusion of a marriage. She deserves half of what he makes, including future earnings by this loser.
Just my opinion, but many of the comments say that Elin has been humiliated. I disagree...it is Tiger who has humiliated himself by screwing a slew of gold-digging sluts. Elin should hold her head high and just keep on being a class act. Tiger is a tool and probably an insufferable narcissist.
I too, was cheated on by an insufferable narcissist, but it was not I who was humiliated. I believe it is my ex who humiliated himself.
Oprah's reaching out to Eldrick why? Is she feeling sorry for the man? Say what? I'm not sure what will happen in this case, but let's hope his wife – who seems to have a lot going on for herself and is young – opts to walk away. As much as anything, this is a man who obviously isn't ready to be, or isn't happy being married. Whatever feelings he has for his wife, reports indicate that he's experiencing similar emotions with at least one of these women. If she doesn't leave, she will be tormented every time he hits the road. Time to cut the losses and move on.
Elin should just leave the guy. If its about money ANY good lawyer can get her 80 million or more now! Don't do this to yourself. Allow him access to his children, deny him access to you! Stand up and show women that you don't have to live with this stuff! He will do it again.
DUMP HIM. As for Oprah, please, I will not be interested in hearing his answers to SOFT BALL questions! Unless she goes JAMES FREY all over him for LYING, CHEATING and whatever else to his wife. Remember your audience, O, women. Not your friends.
Did Tiger do the STD test, if not the media forgot to ask him or his representatives?
Tiger ... contact. Prince Charles and Bill Clinton for a little bit of advice.
The smartest thing that he can do is say nothing. This will die over- people tend to have short term memory.
I have given this some thought.. Maybe, it would be a good idea for Eldrick "Tiger" Woods and his wife Elin to go on "The Oprah Winfrey Show". It certainly wouldn't hurt. And it would give Tiger and his wife Elin a chance to show the world, that they are both human and human's make mistakes. Everyday. If anyone cares more about Tiger, it is Oprah. Oprah has one of the biggest hearts that I know of. Oprah would be sensitive to the problems, situation and circumstances that Tiger and his wife, and family are going through.., especially with the media. Oprah would be fair. I wouldn't mine to have on the show with the couple.., Dr. Phil McGraw. I wouldn't mine to hear what Dr. Phil has to say about the situation and circumstances. The only problem that I have is.., is that all of the current media is saying, that Tiger has a "sex adddiction" problem and is a "sex addict". Maybe with a strict father and the demands of the sport, marriage, fatherhood and some issues that haven't been addresses' for Tiger as he was growing up.., ya, I would have some problems, too. Sex addiction is caused by many things as a person is growing up and into adulthood. He certainly shows all the signs of a "sex addict". I hope Tiger and his wife Elin, family, friends and loyal fans the best, and I hope they do go on the show. Mike in Montana
I am very doubtful that Tiger would want to submit himself to Oprah's interrogation. For someone who has hitherto maintained his privacy, that will destroy his psyche, not only for public opinion, but his golf game as well.
One other factor is whether he can continue his production level on the golf course. With potential vultures awaiting their turn to cash in for their silence, his billions might well become millions; especially if his endorsements dry up.
What is of concern about this promiscuous report is that Tiger, in some cases, had no time for Condoms.
Elin shouldnt divorce him. she needs to stay and make tigers life a lving hell and spend all his money so he cant on his lil whores. then see gets the last laugh, any man with that kinda of money has probably all all kinds of whores. why let him spend the $$ on whores when wifey should spend it on her and the kids, hell even on her friends.
Oprah should keep her big butt out of this. She isn't married and should quit exploiting situations.
Hope Oprah doesn't think she can bed Woods, thus far the only skanks that say they were sleeping with this mental midget are white girls....
And with a wife like that at home, not his finest hour.
come on folks. i'm sure his wife is equally to blame in this. she may have not cheated but probably drove him to this in some form or another.
I think it's time that you all got a life of your own and stopped trying to live and interfere with others lives....
Great – give the liar with no integrity a forum. I have no desire to see someone of such low caliber. Why does Oprah spread around the words of scum?
Oprah doesn't have to worry about Tiger trying to nail her- she is not caucasian and way too chubby.
First it's Oprah interviewing Tiger. TIGER!!!! Who the hell is the victim here?? Next it'll be Al Sharpton – the greatest race bater of all time. If you think it's a circus, now wait until the Reverend gets involved!!!!
elin most likey new what tiger was like before they got married so sorry to say she prob had what was coming to her . She gives the true meaning of blondes . She beautiful but not too smart to marry a jack a** like him.
Here we go agian, saying what Opra should say/do. The report is that she is reaching out to Tiger. Why not let him say what he wants to say so the media can stop this craziness. Maybe then we can just put this behind us and get on with what is really important to this nation, health care for all Americans. By the way, when will these gold digging women stop chasing athaletes and other public figures and just get jobs to support themselves.
i think this whole thing is getting way out of hand. everytime i turn on the tv the issue is just geting biger and bigger. i am a huge tiger fan and i will never down on him for this issue. some of these other post make me sick. dont get me wrong weather any of these girls are telling the truth and he did cheat or weather its all fake tiger is still just a regular person but the only difference is that he is one of the greatest golfers. it doesnt change the fact that he is a great golfer. everyone need to leave his personal life out of it and let him deal with it on his own. his marriage is not what made him a golfer its his skills at playing golf...its sad the kind of things people would say or do to be in the light in this whole thing. it his personal life.. everybody need to stay the f*** out of his business and let him live his life and take care of it on its own, and let hime get back to playing golf....... he is not perfect, nobody is, and none of you are perfect either.
Ava, you have to be the biggest moron this side of the galaxy. If she loved him, she would work it out? Jeez, how many hits upside the head do YOU take from a man on a daily basis? Sorry sweetie, but when a man has even one mistress, not to mention 9, 10, or 11 of them, there is NOTHING to work out other than a financial settlement. She should take him for all he's got since he isn't the least bit interested in being a real husband anyway. It's women like YOU who defend "men" like Tiger Woods and encourage women to stay with someone who totally disrespects them that gives men the idea it's more than okay to cheat in the first place.
The media is a wonderful thing...first they uncover, expose and exploit every tryst and affair AD NAUSEUM and then...voila! out comes Oprah to offer instant redemption.
If only the rest of the world's problems were so easily solved.
Great – who's next, Wilt the Stilt (no wait, he's dead). Real class Oprah.
what is the big deal a man cheating on his wife and making a personal mistake. we should care about his golf play not about what happens on his personal life. we don't know what's going on behind closed doors. We don't know how strong their marriage is. if it is complete or not. But no. Oprah is not a personal friend. That is just another oportunity for her to put the tv ratings of the chart. a friend calls you on the phone and ask you how they can help. don't give me this crap
Tiger is done. Hope he saves what money he has left after Elin gets what she is due. No excuses for Nike to support him either. Bu-bye!
This is really madness!!!
Who cares what he did or not? It is their problem not ours!
Many of these women were in love with him and he has broken their hearts and soul. He is a man without a soul and without a conscience.
His actions demonstrate that he is shallow, self absorbed and misogynistic. He is getting what he deserves - public exposure and public condemnation.
I would like to see how he explained all this to his Mom, can you imagine what would be going on if his Dad was still alive. I can venture a guess there would be a lot of family talking going on. ...........
Tiger was living the life of an Arab sheik with a frigging white woman harem. I heard Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are organizing a protest march because Tiger is not an equal opportunity shagmaster, obviously discriminating against his own race.
Bill Clinton, Jesse Jackson, Michael Vick-yep–roll 'em all together and you get---Cheetah Woods
Oh please...let Tiger and Elin work this out behind closed doors..it is no ones business but theirs...and Oprah getting involved, give me a break...she has no reason to interview either of them....Tiger, please, please do not do the interview....
Oprah needs to mind her own business. She says that she's interviewing Mr. Woods to help, she just doing for the ratings. She throws her money and weight around like they dealers in Dubai. Just like Dr. Phil, the placebo so called doctor is in the house. I am so sick of Hollywood I could vomit. You know there is something to be said about Mel Gibson's movie Paparazzi, the so called journalist get what they deserve at the end. And I use the term journalist very very lightly.
This is all so awesome! Just kidding. I fooled you! Ahh ha ha ha! I feel sorry for the wife. It's one thing to be cheated on and the only people that know are you, your spouse and the other party, but in this instance THE WHOLE WORLD knows. Oprah does not need to talk to Tiger or his wife. They need to handle this in the privacy of their own home.
I hope he turns her down. Oprah does things for ratings only. She doesn't care about the personal turmoil people are going through. Tiger (not that you are going to read this), handle this with you wife IN PRIVATE. Amazing how people are attacking this man. I just wonder how many of his attackers are guilty of the same thing, just haven't got caught.
Tiger should have cut his losses, the alibi that Elin gave him was she mad the mistake of hitting him. Where are the hospital personal that treated him why have they not come forth to tell about the lacerations to his face that was not caused by the auto, but instead inflicted by a person? Had the state of Florida did their job, if this was an ordinary person who went to the hospital with assault injuries whether or not the person wanted to file charges or not once that individual had been questioned it automatically becomes a state matter and charges filed. Elin should have been locked up and charges filed by the state and she needs serious ANGER MANAGEMENT sessions with Dr. Phil. She knew when she married and why she married Tiger it was always for the money! IF ELIN WAS TAKING CARE OF HOME, AND SHE KNOWS SHE WAS NOT THIS ORDEAL WOULD NOT HAVE OCCURRED ON HER WATCH! Elin is the reason Tiger is having to seek attention from other women and this rewriting of the pre-nup will entitle Tiger to PURE HELL in it's worst form their will never be a day that she will not remind him of all of this mess! Tiger needs a wife that will stand by him not seek how much money she can get from him, we all know whether we want to admit it or not THAT'S NOT LOVE IT NEVER WILL BE, I don't care how Elin and her crew dress it up! Elin is in the same category as the other women that came forth, she was just on top of her game enough that she landed the big fish, when she was dating Tiger she had competition then and she was well aware of what she was going into before she married him. This is no surprise to Elin, if only she would be honest (without money being offered) to admit it.
My name is sally.
I am sure the prenup was Tigers idea.
He knew he was not going to be faithful and protected himself.
What a SLEASE he is. And just think how much I have admired him.
I hope he goes away for good, and Elin takes the children and find a good man. She has never tried to steal the limelight from him.
She deserve to be happy. You go girl!
Some of your guys comments make me sick. Yeah what tiger did is wrong but guess what, he is a athlete. An athlete tries to be the best at what he/she does in a particular sport so when stuff like this hits news, it should have no judgement on how the person is as a athlete. Like the old saying goes, leave work at work and home at home. I still think he is the best athlete out there and for that I admire that quality in him. With his family ordeal, yes I am ashamed at what he did but I will not judge his sporting career because of that He has earned everything in that sport.
This is all ummmm...baby back baby back baby back baby back baby back baby back baby back baby back baby back baby back baby back baby back baby back baby back baby back baby back baby back baby back baby back baby back baby back baby back bogus!
I am a big fan of Tiger. Although he made mistake in his personal life, it doesn't affect my respect to his professional achievement. People with painful relationship experience knows that one shouldn't judge other's personal life. I am still his big fan.
Tiger is a great golfer and a legend of the game. His failure to keep his marriage together is a non issue. Why should he be held to a different standard. If his wife decides to leave or stay, it is solely her decision. Fans tune in on Sundays to see him perform on the final round of golfing events not to review his personal decisions.
My advice to Tiger would be not to grant any interviews, simply return to the course and win events and by this time next year this will be old news.
America get a life.
Well, Guys you guys are all silly. Tiger is a baller, but he shouldn't cheat on his wife. That is bad. Its not nice.
I, think that once again these people private lives are being exploited through the media, and that's ashame.
Wow John... you sound like a real catch for someone.
Oprah's in it for the ratings...
Tiger's in it for the bootie...
Elin deserves all she can get.
PLEASE – when did everyone become judge and jury and know it all of everyones personal business? WHO has to answer to "commenters" and why do people think they "know exactly what happened and what needs to be done ? " its so sick I cant read them –people who love to use the word WHORE -and those who use MONEY as the reason for all the "MISTAKES " HUMANS ARE NOT PERFECT –AND THEY ALL WORK AT BEING AS CLOSE AS CHOICES GET THEM TO "LIFE AS THEY KNOW IT --WE GO THRU THE GAME AND WE TRY TO LIVE UP TO OUR OWN IDEAS OF HOW WE SHOULD HANDLE WHAT WE HAVE DONE --why WHY DO PEOPLE THINK THEY HAVE THE RIGHT OR THE DUTY TO "COMMENT" --LET PEOPLE HANDLE THEIR OWN LIVES -BE THE BEST YOU CAN BE AND SHOW COMPASSION AND RESPECT TO THOSE WHO ARE "HUMAN" AND NEED UNDERSTANDING NOT TOLD HOW THEY FAILED -THEY KNOW -THEY KNOW MORE THAN YOU WILL EVER KNOW SO TAKE CARE OF "U" -–
I bet that Erin is not really that innocent. After all, every 2 weeks she was going back to Norway. I bet that she has a guy up there that has been stretching her out too.
Don't be surprised if a month after the divorce that she ends up marrying Sven!
What we all now realize is while he was deveoping his a golf game he forgot to develop his brain. We all now know that is is not only stupid but dumb, which by the way, pogo tells us, is forever.
I am sure Tiger is not the only celebrity who has cheated. He is just one of the few that got caught. He was caught and was definitely wrong, however he is human. He should learn from his mistake. Everyone deserves a second chance.
Everyone should leave them alone to fix their marital problems. Hopefully Tiger will learn from his mistakes, and his wife to be able to Forgive him. Learn and Grow from Mistakes
Hey Tiger....in say 20 years or so what will you tell your daughter when she's crying on the phone that she just found out her husband of 5 years has been cheating on her????
if Oprah wants to reach out, it should be to the wife. She is the victim here.
Oprah thinks she is the mother of all black celebrities.
Of course Oprah wants to "talk" to him...she does after all have a "talk" show....why not...? Trust me, any other entertainment media would love to talk to him also, be it Larry King Live, Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, Dr. Phil, etc. As far a his wife, Elin...I would take the $80,000,000.00 I hear he offered her to stay in the marriage for another 7 years, and run with it and divorce him, as well as take the children with her. Trust me, any good lawyer will get her that money whether she stayed in the marriage or not. Run girl......take the money and run!
There is no money that can make up for the fact that he chose to possibly expose his wife to STDs without her consent. Wealth, fame, fortune, misfortune, good times or bad times, etc., do not entitle anyone to potentially expose their spouse to STDs. A friend of mine was exposed to HPV by her cheating ex-husband. When she was able to move on and happily remarry, her bliss turned to sadness when she was diagnosed with cervical cancer thanks to the STD her ex husband gave her as he had numerous affairs with unprotected sex. He never gave my friend a choice because he lied to her. She almost lost her life and her child. No money is worth your health or the life of your unborn child. Tiger is the worst type of man. His wife deserved more. She deserved for him to be true.
Tiger may be guilty of having affairs (which is terrible),,,,but no one is talking about the other issue....his wife beating him with a golf club...
If a man beat a woman with a 9 iron, the media and world in general would crucify him...
I agree with Rachel on her reply to Ava. I think she should get money regardless of what she decides to do in the future. She's been so humiliated! I also think that she should devorce him, but this is her business. To John, who says that it is not natural for guys to be monogamists, I would say that we live in a world in which some cultural norms have been established. I am not saying that every man should be with one woman. This should be up to the person to decide. If you know that one woman is not enough for you, don't get married. There is nothing wrong with having many sexual patners as long as you are honest with them. Nothing gives you the right to run around with others while you don't give the same rights to your partner.
I I were Tiger i wouldn't be paying nobody let them write a book to collect their millions let them sell their story that too wil past he should let his millions stay in his pocket and not give wife no more than she signed up for ion the first place and that's it if she wants to loeave and she needs to leave the kids behind to or be paid to be the nanny as she is if she wants to stick around and look after them. Why pay her all these millions? For what? I don't like a cheater and I would prefer if my partner wouldn't cheat but it is up to both of us to maintain the fire and the attraction. Kudos to tiger ! You got game bwoy!
If you google "copala car wash" you'll see a woman who experienced what Elin has, but the result was much more serious.
This book is set in a small village in Mexico where the character met an 82 year old man, who set her thinking straight in conversations. She would never of stayed with Tiger Woods and endured another day of unhappiness.
Tiger: No Oprah! Stay away from any more public humiliation of your family. Get some counseling, stay out of the public eye and, in your words, "make sure it never happens again."
Tiger got game! And I thought he was mousey! If he had to go outside, then a lot aint right inside. Tiger is not the pope and even Priests have their fling. It's about time people stop putting people on pedestals like that they are allflesh and blood and none is perfect no not one. Give the guy a break One more thing, the hyprocrisy of u all. It was just recently we were hanging Chris brown up for responding to Rhianna's jealous tirade (and god knows what she did to him for him to retaliate) now Elin busted tiger up with his very own golf club and we are lauding her. I am sorry for the abused men who have to act macho and not talk like the women get to do about the abuses they face. H, quite possible and evidently is an abused husband are we going to go after the abuser which isin this case is the wife. I hate the hyprocrisy
So wife beaters are off limits, but cheaters are okay. Cheaters that pick up a new girlfriend when their wife is home 7 months pregeant are okay? Oprah should reach out to Elin, not TIger. She is the one hurting. I hope she hurts all the way to the bank! Tiger = scumbag.
The real "victims" in this sad situation are Tiger's children and then his wife. Nobody is addressing the children and how this will effect them. Their world has just had a major re-alignment and it may never be the same again. My prayers and concerns are for them.
I like Robin's suggestion. Get all those young ladies on Oprah and let Elin come out swingin'......on Oprah too! And then Tiger comes out and jumps on the sofa while professing his love for Elin. And in the audience, Bobby Brown yells out that he's been misunderstood as Whitney emerges from backstage, with some sort of powdery substance around the nostril area screamin "Booobbby! Booobbby!"
As if we could care less!
Seriously people, WAKE UP!!!! The list of men that have faltered in their marriage is a long and illustrous list. Men in power will ALWAYS try to get away with as much as they can. It is part of their personality makeup. It is a false sense of entitlement. Unfortunately, these men assume that the women they have their trysts with will be discreet. Sure, just long enough to get enough 'evidence' to sell to every media outlet that will pay them big $$$. Interviews, book deals, talk shows, etc all contribute to this new form of gold digging. Oprah should defer her 'reaching out' to Dr. Phil. At least he has the clinical background to be able to provide the Woods family some true assistance in coming to grips with Tiger's behavior. Basically, there are only a few choices to be made here by Tiger's wife:
1) forgive Tiger, stay and build a stronger relationship
2) stay in it for the $$$ incentive and divorce later but set up all the book and movie deals in the interim
3) divorce him now and take as much $$$$ as possible and hook up with John Daly for revenge
4) stay married and put every monitoring device on Tiger and make his life a living hell for ever cheating
I say take the $$$$ and run. Tiger should just pay her off and then live the life of a playboy golfer. He has more than enough money to really live it up. Way to go Tiger!!! I would recommend hooking up with hotter looking women though. That cocktail waitress was pretty beat.
Ava, you are so misguided. Elin is the injured party here and his vicitim. He is a playboy and a philandering husband. He is your run of the mill cheaters and just happens to be a celebrity. He is no better than the millions of other husbands who cheat on their wives with cute little hotties. And what makes this even worse is that he has kids. He is not th innocent one. She is and she should tell him to cram the 80 million and kick his butt out and sue him for half of everything they own and get full custody of the kids and get on with her life.
I don't think Tiger should get one second of publicity out of this, positive or negative. The whole thing makes me sick. And I hope his wife leaves him and takes the kids far away. I hope he pays dearly for these affairs. What a ridiculous idiot.
I agree with Ava. To me the minute this became about money and the redone prenup it then became sick . By his wife demanding more money and a redone prenup that made her a women who could be bought and we know what they are called.
How is she getting hosed? $75 million dollars to stay 2 moreyears and make appearances? I wish I had it so bad and was getting hosed like that!
Oprah - one, if not THE, most overrated media personalities of all time. A major narcissist herself, it is no surprise she "reached out" to Tiger. The woman announced her show is going off the air TWO years in advance so she can milk all of the attention she can. Tiger - in the revised edition of the dictionary, a photo of Tiger will now be next to definition of "man-whore." Unprotected sex??? Apparently he did not care about his wife or children; what if he contracted a STD or, god-forbid, HIV? He could he passed that along to his wife who could have passed it along to their children. Per the latest news, the wife moved out today - if this is true, good for her!
I am feeling bad somewhat for Tiger it's somewhat sanctimonius to think that powerful and wealthy men will not have sex outside of their marriage. There comes a point in life where you can have all of your whims satisfied.. There will always women who want to associate with wealthy and influential men as well. It has been going on since the dawn of time .
why should she reach out to Elin ? Ella was clearly the cause Tiger had to find comfort in the arms of another woman. Amazing how people have idea how marriage works.
If Woods goes on Oprah, he may as well schedule his castration the same day. I'm not saying he won't go on, but if he does, no way will he confess to all he has done. It's called "Too Big Of An EGO"
Mom2J, actually it would be even more interesting than that because Oprah wouldn't have to book one bimbo who slept with him but maybe about 6 of them!
I feel bad for Tiger's wife. Oprah and the media need to stop getting into everyone's business. Tiger and his family should be left alone.
Mike R – how about he was drunk and/or on Ambien (that came out today). She didn't hit him you idiot.
Oprah is reaching out for ratings, think they should handle this one in house or with a counselor or at worse with a lawyer.
Oh, by the way, who the hell is Elin without Tiger Woods, just another nanny, come on folks we just learned her name, since this crap broke.
Overall, I think she is reaching out to both of them, if Elin walks with millions, any way she will be reaching out for the checkbook and a life of luxury, the kept woman needs to stfu.
Well, it's all about the money now. From every direction, those who stand to gain from Tiger's mess are seeing dollar signs. It's bad enough the most famous athlete in the world publicly humiliates his wife and family. Now we've got another huge media circus on our hands. Nobody"s private life is off limits these days especially if you're a celebrity. I hope things work out for them. Time will tell if their marriage will make it. Re-working their pre-nup to Elin's benefit sure will make a lot of people more cynical that Tiger has bought her off to stick around. Not that she doesn't deserve every penny of it, but that certainly makes their marriage as shallow as you can get. Love has morphed into money.
i like tiger and i say leave him alone...and shouldn'this wife elin "big teeth" woods be in jail right about now...i mean she did commit a crime called domestic violence ...she assaulted him and caused a car crash she should be getting her rights read to her right about now...they put chris brown through the ringer so the same should be done to hr..she is dangerous she clunks people in the head she could have killed him..
Oprah should be ashamed of herself for that! She needs to show support for Tiger's wife, not Tiger! He's proven himself to be a creep and not worthy of any more publicity, bad or good! It doesn't matter what the state of their marriage is, Elin and the 2 little kids did not deserve the humiliation he has caused them! Grow up, Oprah and MYOB!
Nearly half of the people on our planet are living in poverty. We're still undergoing an international economic crisis. We've helped make a mess of our environment in so many ways that we present a danger to ourselves and other species. Wars abound in numerous countries around the globe. We're in the middle of a biotechnological revolution that could forever change what it means to be human. All across the world, people are creating majestic examples of genius in art, dance, literature, drama, engineering, science, and technology.
And yet we spend all this attention and energy on this story. I feel ashamed for our species.
Tiger Woods like a great majority of mena and women got bored in his marriage and sought other women. This is nothing new or surprising, it is just human nature. Part of human nature that some men cannot control and they end up losing a great deal of respect and money in this case just for a little attention from other women. It is sad but this is nothing new. Tiger didn't seek a divorce because he would lose millions of dollars but he is losing that now plus his reputation.
Learn how to spell people; it's "Orca Winfrey" not Oprah Winfrey.
The line of guys that would like to do ELIN would start in Boston to Cali and then to Fla. Let the games begin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If his wife doesn't leave him for good, especially after the Porn Star revelation, it will be sad.
She has left for now, but if she returns thinking this guy will change, she's mistaken.
She has been humiliated enough.,
Elin is being compensated just like the other women have been compensated. So, what does that say about her? Tiger has told people that he lives in a sexless, loveless, marriage and would leave in a flash if not for the fear of losing his children. There might be two sides to the story. It's too bad he couldn't have found a woman to love him (not 9).
What about Elin? Oprah should reach out to her instead...
ANOTHER BLACK GUY -WHO HAS NO RESPECT FOR HIS WHITE WHITE
I hate to be a spoil sport, but there is, so far, NO factual information about Woods' having cheated on anyone. All I've seen and heard is rumor, innuendo, out-right fabrications, and cheap speculation by a pack of media busy bodies who have managed to whip their followers into a frenzy with no substantial information. Even the infamous voice mail has not been confirmed to be from Woods.
Personally, I see all of whatever may or may not being going on with the Woods family as their own business. It concerns no one else but them.
As for Ms. Winfrey, she's simply looking for ratings. Why on earth would either of the Woods choose to plant themselves onto Oprah's much-sobbed on couch?
I feel sorry for Tiger, he's human afterall and stuck in a loveless marriage, (to appease the sponsors??).
It is clear that Elin is in this "marriage" for the money– and SHE is the one who was being violent. Let's not forget that she met Tiger through introductions by a caddy –just like all the others.
These super sportsmen need to learn a lesson- leave the blonde gold diggers alone!
Really Oprah, do you think everyone needs to see an interview with you and Tiger? I seriously doubt given his need for privacy he would give you the time of day. This is a personal matter between him and his wife...you do NOT need to be involved, not does America need to hear the details. Get a life and move on!
The general public doesn't know what these personalities are really like. Tiger is in the Creep category and everybody is surprized? Go figure.
I can not believe we are still talking about Tiger. For God sake, we have others important stuffs to take care of. People are dying , losing their jobs , there is war going on, and there are so many other issues to worry about in this country. What is going on in this country is despicable. Why we are paying too much attention on one individual who made a mistake on his personal life, who cares? Why the media is wasting too much time on this types of silly stuff instead of doing valuable things for this country and the people of USA.
If one is to believe the numerous women who are revealing
Tiger's escapades, it is reasonable to conclude that perhaps he
has a sexual addiction. Considering the amount of encounters
he has allegedly had all over the world, it seems that this control
freak has been totally out of control in his behavior. This goes
well beyond cheating on his wife.
Oprah is a racist. She always has been. Ever notice how she always talks more "black" when she's around other balck people? She always brings up race no matter what she's talking about. She is a big reason why racism still exists. She won't let it go. She makes me sick.
I have to agree, the more I watch Oprah and who she has on, I have to say I do believe she would have Tiger and not his wife because she is white. It is NO secret Oprah will defend her own race, no matter what the situation might be. I think it's sad, I wish we were beyond that.
If I was Elin I would be in New York–at Cartier, Chanel, Bulgari,
Bergdorf Goodman, buying as much "stuff" as I could....I would
have Spa treatments, massage, acupuncture and anything else
that I could think of to spend his money while a decision is in
limbo...and I would move into his $50 Million dollar mansion
that he bought in Jupiter Island...
As much as I am NOT a Tiger fan, I must give him some credit for the way he is handling this situation. By keeping this incident private, he is not subjecting his wife to an arrest for domestic abuse like Chris Brown. There is NO reason for domestic abuse unless it is an issue of self defense. Is Elin a US citizen? If not, if convicted of a felony, she may be deported.
If she really did attack, then she needs to do whatever she can to keep him for opening his mouth and possibly causing her to become a convict.
Are you kidding me? His wife should take the money AND their kids.Hopefully, she can rebuild some sort of life for them. He is a serial womanizer and a pathetic little boy, who needs to grow up. I feel sorry for the kids! What an idiot.
Why is it a woman (Elin) should not take the money if it is true she is being paid to stay? And who is to say she isn't trying to save the marriage? After all if he was in it for love he would not have had her sign a prenup.
Tiger is a brand at the end of the day. Perhaps Elin is thinking about taking care of her kids and herself. She has no real bet Tiger wouldn't walk away, I don't think he would walk away but if she is renegotiating the prenup to keep herself with money in a few years should they get divorced more power to her.
Tiger is going to most likely make more money if they stay together. So why shouldn't she get some of that money. She should. She is making a smart business move, especially if Tiger is not the man whom she thought she married.
I now know more about Tiger Woods personal life than I care to know. Having written that however, I think that lost in all of this story is the hurt and humilliation Tiger subjected his wife to, especially now that all this flussies are coming out of the woodworks to claim their 15 minutes. I leave the judging of Mr. Woods failures as a husband to a higher authority; however, his wife deserves a meassure of consideration in all of this, and I believe she is being kind of thrown under the bus by mere omission; she is hardly ever mentioned, except when it comes to her possibly having demanded the re-writing of the pre-nup (who knows if it's true), or that she has left the house and her husband has been left alone. If this last rumour is true, that will speak highly of her desire to get some respect, if not from the press or the public opinion, at least from herself.
Tiger Wood is a big disappoinmtment to everyone .But people should remember too that he deserves privacy. He may have cheated but this issue is between him and his wife.
It may be a goodidea to sit down with Oprah and hopefully he can redeem himself.
Tiger, you need to forgive yourself before you seek forgiveness .
Tiger's a dog, like every other man, it's only natural. His hormones got the better of him and Oprah wants to be the one to capitalize on it. Plus she might want to "tee off" with him herself, now that everyone knows what a whore he really is.
men are pigs, see?
I'm puzzled here. Is Tiger stupid or what. With all his money and fame would he not realize every scum mag on the planet was watching his every move. If you don't agree then tell me how this whole thing was exposed in the first place. When you choose to try for stardom and make it then you better keep an eye on your back. Oh yeah, they are there!
Hmm...So why does everyone assume she Elin hasn't done the same. Just wondering...
His wife married him for the money anyway? Please, if he was not so famous and rich she would not have given him a chance anyway.
I am so sick of people loggin on to these sights and complaining about the media coverage of this story. STOP reading the stories and STOP leaving messages if you don't care. Leave the rest of us who obviously are interested, for one reason or another, to conversate about a story that is pretty darn entertaining.
More power to Oprah. It's been her job for 25 years to talk to celebrities and everyone else. Why would this story be any different? Quit tripping folks.
I sure hope Elin leaves Tiger. He doesn't deserve her nor the children. Oprah, enough already. We are sick of you!
That is a great sister like you for. The brother needs some kind of supports that he can not find from white men. God should never create white men because they are useless. All white men do is trying to destroy anybody who is better than them.
It is Tiger and Elin"s business. This happens everyday, it just happens that he was caught. Lot's of women looking out for $$$ and now they know the $$$ is stopping so they are trying to get all they can through interviews.
Why are all of you neglecting the obvious. Elin Woods has anger issues that lead to abuse. Sure he cheated, but she inflicted bodily harm on him and caused an accident that could have killed him. The last I checked, "cheating" was not a leathal offense. Why is this so funny and acceptable that a woman did this to her husband. If Elin were a man she would be in jail and labeled a batterer regardless of the circumstances. Oprah and the rest of the media need to address that if they are going to continue to beat this dead horse.
I bet Oprah wished that Tiger have sheated his wife with her.
Let he without sin cast the first stone. None of us are without sin. So stop judging and let Elin and Tiger do what is best for their lives. This guy could have some emotional problems and this is his way of handling his pain. STOP JUDGING AND LOOK IN YOUR OWN BACK YARDS.
got the dow ??????yess.... that is waahhy oprah's talking ...!!!
This is all so absurd! I feel sorry for the wife. It's one thing to be cheated on and the only people that know are you, your spouse and the other party, but in this instance THE WHOLE WORLD knows. Oprah does not need to talk to Tiger or his wife. They need to handle this in the privacy of their own home.
Maybe she should book the bimbo's who slept with him? Now that would be a show!!! Jerry Springer could co-host.
Tiger cheated. Elin hit him. Reverse the names and see how many SNL skits and reaching out from Oprah there would be for Tiger.
I feel sorry for his wife and hope she has the sense to leave him and have a good life with someone that values marriage. He is a poor image of a father and husband and anyone feeling sorry for him is only thinking of him as a golf legend. Let him sleep with whores....but let his family have a life with good role models.
Well, Oprah is minding her own HARPO business, that is why she is reaching out to Tiger. If she had a cooking show it would be kind of strange if she wanted to interview him for his "trangressions", but she could still do it if she wanted to and you know, people would be watching the show so closely that we wouldn't mind seeing Tiger confess and maybe cry surrounded by pots and pans while Oprah and Tiger tasted some of the dishes they had just cooked and maybe Oprah instead of using a 9 iron to hit Tiger, like somebody in this blog suggested, she could use a frying pan or two! We are complaining here that we are so tired of the media because of this and that but, here we are taking our time to blab, that is exactly why blogs like this and shows like Oprah's exist. By the way, this article says that Oprah reached out to Tiger, it says nothing about not reaching out to Elin, we just don't know. Also, Elin became famous the second she married Tiger. Oprah did not put herself on a pedestal...we all decided to put her up there!
Wow, great comment about Elin i.e., "she is in it for the money now." Why tear her down? What did she do? Zero. So what if she is in the money now? Good! He needs to GROVEL to her for what he has done. She has been humiliated by Tiger "can't keep my drawers on" Woods. In front of the entire world might I add. And how about the kids? Remember them? They might be young but they are smart...most kids are. Is this any of our business, no not really. However when you a multi millionaire who receives endorsements to represent products, you need to have maybe an ounce of integrity? Common sense? I do not feel sorry for him at all. Boo hoo. Only for Elin and the kids. If Oprah has him on the show...I won't watch.
...and another one bites the dust. shame shame shame on Tiger. He badly needs help, but might never get it because he might never admit it. shame shame shame!!!
Tiger, "What the hell were you thinking"
Elin, you have a serious decision to make.
This is going to be bigger than the McCartney divorce settlement. I bet she gets $500 Million upfront and 40% of his future earnings. It will be the first billion dollar divorce settlement. This should be interesting to watch!!
Oprah is a douchette.
Why is she reaching out to HIM?! If he wasn't an African American celebrity/athlete, I think she would be reaching out to the wife. Oprah tends to be very biased toward African American celebs. I had not noticed this until my my AA friends pointed it out.
If the racial tables were turned and he was white, I truly believe she would reach out to the AA wife.
Elin is the victime here, not Tiger. Why not have her on the show first? If she declines, then ask Tiger. Oprah talked to Rihanna. Why not Elin? Is it because (gasp) she's white?
I guess after all this time Tiger is still not out of the woods –
He should have just stayed single like Derek Jeter...then he could have screwed all the juicys he wanted and no one would care.
If Tiger Woods takes Oprah's offer, I hope she is ready to give him a list of rahabs for sex addiction. The list is getting longer. He is out of control
Jill Hunter, who are you to call anyone a media hoor? By the way, can you spell? Oprah is not the media, she is an entertainer who hosts a talk show. It's her show, owned by her, paid for by her, so she can have whomever on that she wants!
"oppie", how is Oprah an opportunist? And, who says she's a moral icon? Like her or don't like her, your choice.....but don't criticize a person who paid her dues and has worked hard to amass a fortune. Isn't that what we process as the "American Dream"? One, by the way, that she uses to do much good....in the U.S. and abroad.
She's paid for hundres of kids to go to college, has built houses, donated food-money-services to the needy, and has now begun (in the past few years) to help disadvantaged people in Africa.....all from money she has worked hard for! To boot, she's gotten people interested in reading and serving others. If you don't like her, don't watch her.
Is Oprah married? How can she give advice?
She is far from getting hosed. She will be cleaning up his bank account for years too come. Woe is her... right.
Oprah should reach out to Elin--Tiger caused his own downward spiral and I am so tired of hearing about how Tiger is going to restore his image. His been living a lie and cheating on his wife and family. Elin is the one who needs someone to restore her self respect and dignity she's been sleeping with a liar! Tiger is a spoiled man and should just take up company with other spoiled Hollywood brats. If Oprah wants to go out with a bang then keep Tiger off the show and unless she wants to interview him with the tramps his being keeping company with so the public can see what he's really like.
I hope he never breaks Jack's record now. As a former Tiger fan, I've heard enough. His wife has my complete sympathy and I hope she takes him to the cleaners big time. To have unprotected sex is unforgivable. He doesn't deserve Elin. I hope he is heckled and booed every appearance. Good old headline grabbing Oprah-Can't wait for Tiger to do the Tom Cruise jump on the couch repeat!
First, Tiger is only sorry because he got caught. If any of the reports are correct in the number of women, Tiger took his power and image to hit on anything that moved. All the while his wife was giving birth to his two children. Second, "getting 5 million for her troubles" trivializes adultery and this blatant disregard for vows, promises and family does not such a remark. Third, most of the posts are right when they wrote that Oprah is in this one for the publicity only. What could Tiger possibly say that would condone his behavior? Nothing as it is indefensible. If the marriage was "sham" then have the decency to allow Elin to walk away instead of being cheated on and having the paps hunting her and her children. Maybe Tiger's mom will reach out and slap some sense into her son
Tiger used to be in the Sports section of CNN, now he moved to the Entertainment section.
I don't think anybody should be giving this guy anymore air time than he's already had.
Woods and his wife should be allowed to sort this out themselves and not "hire Oprah" to present their issues.
I think they should both go on Jerry Springer – now that would be a show – invite of few of his flings too and let them fight it out!
it is personal – why do we think we are entitled to this information.
The great opportunist and moral icon
I think the media should just drop this and let Tiger & his wife work it out together. It's their business, nobody elses. Like I keep saying, I hope he continues to keep his mouth shut. Let people speculate all they want. None of it is fact.
She is the mother of his children which they both adore, and she's also gorgeous, level headed and definitel not a headline seeker. Tiger should bow his head and crawl back on his hands and knees to keep her and his family together. Money and fame have nothing to do with the breakup of any family, and my heart goes out to anyone in this situation, especially to Tigers wife. I sincerely hope they find a way to forgive, and move on with life. Time eventually will heal the wounds, but Tiger will have to work 100 times harder to prove his devotion to his wife if he wants to keep his family together.
Who cares if Elin is in it for the money now. She deserves every cent she gets to have to put up with being with him after all this disgrace. He publically humiliated her and their family. He made a mockery of the institution of marriage. I would not stay but you can bet I would gladly accept his "forgiveness" money. He owes her a big apology and who cares he pads her bank account.
It's too soon to see him groveling on Oprah. It won't be sincere. He is only sorry he got caught. He needs to be truly sorry and that won't happen until he realizes what he did was wrong on so many levels.
Elin is beautiful and I hope she knows this is not about her; it's his own insecurities and need to be a man whore!!!!!!
Oprah should be talking to his wife. Her and the children are the ones hurt by all of this!!
So you really believe that any athlete's wife would dare to believe that this type of behavior wasn't something negotiated in their pre-nup?
leave tiger alone...let it marinate for a while and will find out what really happened soon
What kind of relationship, let alone love, can be bought with any amount of money? How very sad for all parties involved.....what would his beloved Father think?
We all need to realize that Tiger did not commit murder, rape,or rob anyone. What he did was cheat on his wife. I am quite sure that if his wife wanted to speak that she would have reached out to Oprah. I am quite sure that she knows who is trying to get in touch with her husband now. Do you think that she would want to tell why Tiger cheated? Do you really think that she knows? Who are we to judge what they decide to do in the privacy of their own home? Whether we think that Oprah is good or bad, she ends up getting the information that everyone wants to know. So we all need to stay tuned and those of you that are so upset about this, quit getting your panties up in a bunch and wait. Don't crucify this guy, don't hate on Oprah, and quit wondering why noone wants to hear what Elin has to say. It may or may not all come out. Really, it is none of our business.
this gets worse by each day; his wife has got to leave him, throw him out now.
Pre-nup? let me think? if it was true love vs an image....., hmmm, maybe if i was super rich , handsome , famous, and able to travel the world on a whim i would be in just as much trouble., i am just slightley wealthy and when i travel women are approaching me all the time and it does not matter that i wear my wedding band proudly.
Tiger's wife has been humiliated in front of the entire world. The only way to undo that deed is to run like the wind and show that large amounts of money can't buy a strong woman worth their salt. Tiger obviously has a psychological problem; maybe he should appear on Dr. Phil and not Oprah. Elin could write a tell-all book about her husband and make a bundle. I guess it's about power house celebrities sticking together.
Don't worry about his wife??? Are you insane? STD's, her name being drug through the mud and heartache over hearing your husband has over 10 mistresses with unprotected sex. WOW! Tool!
I believe if Tiger loved his wife, he wouldn't CHEAT. Money dosen't buy happiness. Fame and fortune can ruin your life. Tiger needs to seek JESUS for his adulturess behavior, and ask Elin to forgive him.
Ava That's ridiculous. If Tiger really loved his wife and their child, he wouldn't be sleeping around with a bunch of women of questionable character. He is the walking definition of a narcissist. Elin has every right to the money so she can take care of herself and her daughter.
Once you score the interview O, get him to do as RFK suggested- "place your sins on the lamp".
Due to developments in the Tiger story, Oprah's interest in an interview is now totally nullified and will have to wait until well into 2010 before Tiger's situation will have resolved enough to allow Tiger to speak to anyone.
Bad to Worst. Sad to see Tiger's transgressions playing out on every media distribution paltform available...worst to see how poorly he and his team are handling things..completely reactive! Universities now offer degrees in Crisis Management, Accenture is one of his big sponsors....Are they giving him this bad advice? As for Elin, she has become an enemy of the state, a member of SPECTRE (SPecial Executive for Counter -intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion) – when she joined the list of extortionist among with the other women. People get robbed all the time, however they usually aren't family members, at your lowest point. Instead of a Bikini model, Elin should be modeling a black ski mask and toting a firearm...Just my opinion. Two wrongs dont make a right!
Off the subject, but before you comment you should learn how to spell, Marty (hoor should be whore) and Pam Colier (house whole should be household).
I am so sick of the media making a big deal out of this...please Oprah, we all don't give a rip about this anymore...It's done, It's over..move on!!!Face it, most public figures don't fly straight, at some point, someone has to get caught with his or her pants down. Move on already.
Ava, why shouldn't she get money. do you think wives aren't entitled to any money? she's been publicly humiliated. and she is a beautiful and well mannered woman. opportunity lost...she married someone and had two children with him and it was a poor choice. she deserves some of the money he earned while she was raising his children and he was cheating on her.
his wife won't do an interview. #1 in all of the reports on the new prenup it's being said that part of the deal is she cannot talk publicly. that is the purpose of offering her money. to keep her quiet and to keep her there for several more years until it blows over to make sure his endorsement deals still come.
I'd like to see all of the women with whom he's had affairs invited onto Oprah, and then surprise him live on-stage. Then, Oprah would encourage them to start making out together, and meanwhile, from another door, would appear Elin, golf-clubs in hand, and start whacking the crap out of all of them, including Oprah.
Elin would survive, while several of the whores would not; Tiger would be left permanently disfigured, and Oprah would go out in the blaze of glory that she anticipated.
Elin is a victim in all of this and no amount of money will ever help her to trust a man again. She has faced the ultimate betrayl. Where is the accountability on all these womens part? They had to know he was married. Why would they do that to another woman?
Oprah is reaching out to Tiger for the ratings period. I'm very disappointed in Woods behavior, I thought he was a cut above the rest, but he's just a whore, thinking with the wrong head.
Why does anyone care? Oprah's reaching out for ratings. Leave Tiger and Elin alone and let them resolve their issues in private. I'm sick of this country's need to get into everybody's business. From the "octomom", "balloon boy", tea-party fools and others of their ilk, we've become a nation obsessed with the next Andy Warhol "15 minutes of fame" event. Why don't you people start thinking about how to turn things around in your corner of the world? If you're in great shape financially, help someone who isn't. If you need help financially, look at fixing that problem, not Tiger Woods' problems. This country has gone downhill so much that we need to start looking within. This country can be a great country again if we'll all stop acting like "trailer trash", getting into everybody's business and discussing it to death. Improve our communities one by one until the whole nation is back to being an America I can be proud of again.
Wonder who things would be all the way around if Elin had been the one who was running around w/numerous men behind Tiger's back?? Fun to ponder. I feel for the kids the very most, actually.
Their Dad will be known as a famous golfer and infamous playboy behind their Mom's back.
tiger woods is the epitome of money buying love he needs to sit down and think about how phony he is
The media, oprah, and reality people need to leave the Woods family alone until they come to a decision. Most of these ladies are out for money and Tiger should have know that. Anyway, leave them alone and don't act like a bunch of idiiots.
Hey, how about leaving him alone. The guy cheated on his wife in what appears to have been a broken marriage. It's not natural for guys to be monogamist in the first place. On top that none of know what was really going on in their relationship.
Yes, let's not have this media circus continue onto the Oprah show.
What could possibly be said anyway??? He is a big disappointment to his family and to all others who have followed his career. Hitting a little white ball around has made him a billionaire, but who cares.
He has cheated on his wife (big time) with apparently quite a few other hoochies. His wife should get rid of him. End of this story.
I was a huge Tiger fan but now it's plain to see that he is just a normal person whose head was over-inflated with fame. I feel sorry for his wife for being so humiliated in the media. Even if she does get a lot of money (if they divorce), she'll still have to remember the embarrassment at her expense. If you're not happy, just get divorced already. I like Oprah too but I agree that she is not an expert on marriage or relationships so she needs to butt out. By "reaching out" to Tiger, she is implying she is on his side. She needs to put one of her high-dollar pumps up his backside!
Don't worry about his wife. She'll be fine with her $500 million after all of this is over with.
The reason she won't talk to Elin is because the model wife is not as famous as tiger. Period. Oprah is a media hoor, and for all her talk about women's rights, she is full of crap when it comes to really dealing with tough issues. I hope she reads this.
I think Oprah should have Elin on and all of the attention grubbing "ladies" that Tiger was fooling with. That would be a better show.
I just HATE the way EVERYONE acts like Oprah is God or something!!!! Good lord she's just a woman with a talk show!!
Why is this Oprah's business. I am so tired of the media that it just makes me sick. This is not new this is not a world issue. This is a man that cheated on his wife. Big deal. Let people handle their own house whole for a change. Like the old religious quote states SWEEP AROUJND YOUR OWN FRONT DOOR.
His wife is getting plenty. She has been given more than 5 million dollars for her troubles. If she really loved him, she wouldn't take the money and she would try to work it out. She's in it for the money now.
Oprah needs to mind her own HARPO business! Who is she to give advice on marriage?
why would she not reach out to his wife instead.
Seems to me she should be reaching out to Elin, not Tiger.
I think I would like to see her grab him by his ear and reach out to him with a 9 iron like Elin did.
Cheez, is anyone reaching out to Tiger's wife? She's the one getting hosed by all of this
