Tiger Woods left the Gentle Path rehab clinic in Hattiesburg, Mississippi with wife Elin Nordegren today, according to Radar. While all we could see for ourselves was that Woods may not have been shaving, tabloids have claimed golf star’s weeks-long stint involved plenty of group and individual therapy, a polygraphed confession to his wife (who supposedly came down to the clinic earlier this week) and absolutely no video games whatsoever. Repeat: no video games.
Though Nordegren’s recent refusal to wear a wedding ring gave credence to rumors she’s was planning a divorce, she has since reportedly changed her mind, with the couple now trying to repair their relationship. But while some quality time with their children is next on their agenda, it might not be long before Tiger’s back on the golf course. Australia’s Herald-Sun said the athlete may even attend this month’s Accenture Match Play Championship in Arizona, with the event’s director saying Tiger’s participation “would be terrific” even if he couldn’t confirm nor deny. Don’t feel bad about that, dude—it’s not like anyone’s been able to officially confirm anything involving Tiger since this scandal broke.

Elin Nordegren has been without a wedding ring since confronting husband Tiger Woods about his infidelity last Thanksgiving, but new reports suggest she may have changed her mind about divorcing the golf star. Following their claim that Nordegren visited Woods at the Mississippi sex rehab clinic where he’s supposedly been hiding out, Radar now says the pair are planning to give their marriage another go. “She was happy when she came home,” says their source. “Things went well. He’s told her he’s serious about making it work and doing whatever he can.”
If Nordegren and Woods truly are patching things up, new details about the Thanksgiving fight that left him in the hospital couldn’t have come at a worse time. According to The Daily Beast, the battle started when Woods told his wife the National Enquirer was planning a (false) story about his cheating and put her on the phone with “pal” Rachel Uchitel to assuage her fears. Less than convinced, Nordegren began texting Uchitel from Woods’ phone, eventually learning their true relationship. Nordegren then woke her Ambien-addled husband—who contacted Uchitel to announce is impeding divorce—leading to the golf-club-swinging/car-crashing brouhaha we heard so much about. But that’s all in the past now, right? Right?

Guess we know one of Tiger Woods‘ New Year’s resolutions. People is reporting that the philandering golfer is currently holed up in The Meadows, an exclusive Arizona rehabiliation clinic. Though X17 made the claim in late December, People‘s unnamed sex therapist dates his time of entry just after New Year’s. Depending on who you believe, he may have wanted some holiday bro time—or one last tango with mistress Rachel Uchitel—before checking in.
Discussing the situation with People, Vh1′s Dr. Drew Pinsky was less than certain sex rehab would solve the problem.”The feature here that has caught everyone’s attention is that he seems to be maintaining relationships with all these people – not just have sex with them…We’re speculating sex and love are the primary issues. They may not be.” It sure doesn’t look like Woods’ recovery process involves wife Elin Nordegren, who’s still in suburban Orlando with the kids. According to X17‘s source, the golfer’s clinic stay may have more to do with rehabilitating his career, anyway. “His handlers forced him to enter the program. They feel that if he blames his cheating on addiction, the public will forgive him.” How soon before the tearful Barbara Walters interview?

Well hello there, pretty lady. Tiger Woods‘ kinda-wife Elin Nordegren may be dealing with a crap load o’ drama back home, but she sure doesn’t look disheveled and crazy (er, like some people do when relationships go sour). The mom of two was out and about in Florida toting around her son Charlie, and we can’t stop marveling at how good she looks. Casual, but still put together, in that – ‘ I just threw this one but I still look damn good – and I’m juggling a kid and a cheating, sleazy husband’ sort of way. It almost makes us want to dump the yoga pants and Old Navy hoodie for some actual adult clothes the next time our live life takes a turn for the chaotic. Almost. More pics below.

Tiger Woods‘ whereabouts have been largely unknown lately – some reports have placed him at a friend’s estate in South Africa, others have said he’s been shacking up in Florida near Mistress #1, Rachel Uchitel. Now we have confirmation that Woods is actually staying right in TheFabLife’s own backyard in New York.
Woods has been spotted by the paparazzi at the Trump Hotel on Central Park West in Manhattan, apparently only leaving his room to booze at the hotel bar and not venturing outside. Word is, he rented out an entire floor of the hotel to maintain his privacy. We’d like to gently suggest to Tiger that he pinch his pennies and maybe downgrade to a suite, seeing as wife Elin is going to take him for everything he has. It also seems odd to us that he came to New York to keep a low profile, but then again, the guy’s judgment isn’t the best now is it? [Photo: GettyImages]
There’s only days left until the holidays! Are you still stuck on those difficult-to-shop-for people on your list? We have plenty of suggestions for everyone who is impossible to shop for – from your sex-obsessed friend to the left out sister on your list. Check out the photos below to look at all of the goodies in our holiday gift guide.
Tiger’s Woods‘ wife Elin Nordegren is apparently taking the world’s greatest athlete to divorce court. Lucky for Tiger, he has his pick of skanky mistresses to comfort him once his wife – and his money – is gone. The only question is – which one of the 15 ladies will he kiss under the mistletoe? According to People, Elin is chatting with high-powered attorney Sorrell Trope, 82, who is the go-to guy in Hollywood for ending marriages and making out with millions (Nicole Kidman and Britney Spears are past clients). All she has to it put a big red bow on the divorce papers, and she’s got the perfect gift for her hubby!
An Us Weekly source confirms the divorce rumor. “She’s going to take her sweet time,” said the insider. “She wants all the dirty laundry to be out on the table before she signs anything.”
Apparently Elin’s already kicked Tiger out of their mansion (so he can go live in their other mansion), and is gearing up to spend the holidays without her husband. It’s the most wonderful time, of the yearrrrrrr! [Photo: GettyImages]
You think you’re tired of hearing about Tiger Woods‘ ever-growing list of mistresses? According to People, Elin Nordegren has finally had enough of her philandering husband. “She’s made up her mind [about divorcing],” says their source. “There’s nothing to think about: he’s never going to change.” There’s plenty of circumstantial evidence to suggest a split. One, Nordegren was spotted without her wedding ring. Two, TMZ says she’s close to inking a deal with Nike rival (and Tiger sponsor) Puma. And most notably, Nordegren is reportedly taking the kids to Sweden for the holidays—without Tiger.
“He is very contrite, but he’s also disoriented,” a friend told the Daily News. “He still can’t believe this is happening.” So what does a guy do when his marriage and career are crumbling around him? Bro down with your college buds! “He’s been talking about going away with two or three of his friends, just the boys…they’ve been trying to figure out a place that would be safe,” says the chatty pal, who amusingly adds “their wives aren’t happy.” Like even the lowest bar skank wants to be Mistress No. 55 at this point.

Elin Nordegren isn’t going to let her husband Tiger Woods’ mistress-bangin’ get her down. The pretty Swede stepped out in Orlando today with her kids and a nanny/friend by her side, grabbing lunch at a local Thai restaurant.
Elin is obviously making a statement by not wearing her wedding rings, but she has yet to reveal if she’s staying with the cheating golfer. But if she decides give the single life a try, she already has an army of Swedish female fans rooting her on. “Swedish women like Elin are brought up to be independent and strong,” Aftonbladet op-ed editor Karin Magnusson told the Daily Beast, “and you can only stand for just so much humiliation. We’re excited about this. We’re hoping Elin will file for divorce and show Tiger—and the world—what Swedish women stand for.”
Or, as another Swedish columnist succinctly put it: “…Elin didn’t take any sh*t. Just like a tough Swedish girl shouldn’t. Elin is our heroine.” [Photo: Splash News Online]
Despite the remorse Jaimee Grubbs professed on Extra (“I couldn’t describe how remorseful that I am to have hurt [Elin Nordegren]’s family and her emotionally”), the Tool Academy star continues to earn the $150k she allegedly received for her story by sharing texts from her “sacred” relationship with Tiger Woods to Us Weekly. Nothing says “sorry for homewrecking” like letting everyone in on the dirt. Some choice bits of [sic]-ness between the former friends with benefits:
Tiger: I need you.
Jaimee: then get your tired ass over here and visit me! I need u
Tiger: I will wear you out soon.
Jaimee: I only watch football
Tiger: Figured you would say that. Big black guys.
Jaimee: u are my first, last and only black guy! U should feel special
Tiger: why do I not believe that?
More after the jump!
