Women behaving badly: A seemingly endless parade of supposed Tiger Woods mistresses

Rate This

Will someone please tell me why we are keeping score?

The story should be over. Tiger Woods had a car accident; that was news. The police report led to legitimate questions about the cause and circumstances leading up to the accident, which in turn led to speculation about domestic violence, infidelity and marital conflict. A voice-mail recording was released with Woods apparently asking a woman to erase her name from her answering machine because his wife “went through his cell phone” and might be calling her. Arguably, that was still news, because it seemed to confirm some of the circumstances surrounding the accident.

But now, we have a parade of women claiming they, too, were in Tiger’s little black cell phone.

The “count” has grown from 1 to 3 to 6 to, now, 10ish, including a pancake house waitress, a nightclub executive and a porn star. And here’s the problem: There’s nothing to keep it from growing to 12, or 120. Right now, a woman seeking her 15 minutes of fame can just say she was one of Tiger Woods’ mistresses, and she’ll be on the cover of a tabloid – and most likely the television screen – within a day.

What does it matter, if there were 3 or 30? It doesn’t. We shouldn’t care. While the whole story began with a legitimate news event, it has now degenerated into a poorly managed reality series. Who will announce today that they, too, slept with Tiger Woods? Will she be pretty, or tawdry? A blonde, or a brunette? New York, Las Vegas or California? Tune in and see.

And when the count got to more than a handful, the question of sex addiction was raised. The words were spun across tabloids and legitimate news sources alike. Experts in sex addiction said they wouldn’t speculate, and then they did. This morning on Good Morning America, one suggested that he needs to seek rehab to fix his internal issues. All of this with no way to know the truth.

By no means is this an excuse or a support of any infidelity Tiger Woods may actually have committed. He’s obviously in the doghouse, and will be, for a while. But these women’s actions may be having even more serious consequences.

I think Tiger Woods is one of the best golfers the world has ever known. I don't know why everyone is talking about him as if he has done something wrong. Ok, so he slept around a bit but that shouldn't effect his stature on the golf course. Many of the celeb blogs listed on the blog index at www.dozenblogs.com were saying that Woods' career is over. But I think he will come back and be a champion once more. I think he will even beat Jack Nicklaus' all-time win record.

I agree with you Diane. I like gossip just as much as the next girl but stories like these always make me cringe at some point because I just can't stand to hear about them any more and I lose interest.

I don't know why the media makes such a big hype over a 4th, 5th, or 6th girl coming out because in the end-- he cheated. Period. As a wife, I can care less if it's 1, 2, or 20. Cheating is cheating no matter how you put it. It's obvious now that he had no remorse about it after the first time and that's why he kept on but I really don't care what any of the little hussies has to say-- I can't imagine any of it being of substance.

They need their 15 minutes of fame so they will all come out of the wood works sooner or later.

You don't seem to get it--why we're interested. It's a literal example of the emperor wearing no clothes. His iconic true-blue corporate shill status has been exposed for what it really is--a slick misleading marketing invention. The real person underneath the matrix-like image is apparently a degenerate. There's an important Orwellian lesson here which can't be denied. You have a choice the red or blue pill?

If hes gonna have sex outside of his marriage, why is he married? Get a divorce! A mistake is something you do once, are you saying he doesn't know right from wrong? Lets all use "addictions" as an excuse to commit transgressions of every kind. His wife is just lucky she didn't kill him with those golf clubs. She certainly doesn't deserve to go to prison for his "MISTAKES". As for the many many mistresses ... many young women of today have a totally different set of values. Why would sex with a celebrity be bad? Its just another day.

I beleive he is a man and he has a sence like evry other person he could make a mistake and move on. No one is perfect we are all make mistakes in our life rich or poor. Everyone enjoys their life the way they like it that's him leave him alone let him reestablish his problems
