Tiger Woods Scandal: What Jesper Parnevik and other Celebrities are Saying
Now that Tiger Woods' transgressions have made him an even bigger household name than ever, every two-bit journalist with a microphone is seeking a sound bite or reaction piece. And the late-night talk show circuit has jumped aboard the punch line express, with everyone from Jay Leno to Jimmy Kimmel to Wanda Sykes taking a potshot. (No word yet on whether David Letterman will weigh in given his own transgressions).
So I decided to take a look at what some of the various celebrities have to say about Tiger Woods and his reported harem of mistresses, including Rachel Uchitel, Jaimee Grubbs and Kalika Moquin, and Tiger's wife Elin Nordegren.
Fellow golfer Parnevik introduced Tiger to his future wife, Elin Nordegren, whose twin sister served as a nanny for the Parnevik family. Parnevik has been the most outspoken against Tiger, saying he's sorry he ever introduced him to the future Mrs. Woods.
"I'm kind of filled with sorrow for Elin since me and my wife are at fault for hooking her up with him, and we probably thought he was a better guy than he is."
"I would probably have to apologize to her and hope she uses a driver next time instead of a three-iron."
The New Orleans Saints star running back, no stranger to the paparazzi himself after an on-again, off-again relationship with reality star and world-famous ass Kim Kardashian, sent out this message via Twitter:
"For those of you who think Tiger 'won't be the same' after this, you guys are crazy! He's maybe the single greatest athlete of our time!" He then immediately followed with another tweet, "Oh and he's the First Billionaire Athlete! Trust me he's good! Lol! Doesn't make what he did right, but he's GOOD trust that!"
Semi-talented and media-obsessed rocker John Mayer, who reportedly would call the paparazzi to advise them where he and Jessica Simpson would be clubbing to ensure media coverage, had this to say via his Twitter account:
"I've got to finish boning my mistress early so that I can go home and explain to my kid that he's lost a role model. What a shame."
"Access Hollywood" host, "Today Show" contributor and actress Maria Menounos, who had her own alleged romantic relationships with Vin Diesel and Tom Brady, voiced her outrage over the incident.
"Its horrible....but not surprised at all.guys-seriously—if you want someone else—just get out of your situation and do it the right way!"
Curry, who burst to fame after winning the first "America's Top Model" competition and then later hooked up with and eventually married former "Brady Bunch" child star Christopher Knight, also took to the Twitter airwaves to tell people to back off.
"I missed the part that tells me y Tiger Woods&his fams [sic] personal business is any of yours?He's a GOLFER,not a Leave it to Lamas. get lives... There are plenty of fame whoring celebs that WANT you in their business, leave those who dont alone."
The Big Ticket, who is in the midst of his own divorce proceedings amidst allegations of rampant infidelity, got the back of his fellow Floridian millionaire, staunchly defending the pro golfer.
“Tiger’s my guy. I’m not going to be like everybody else and say off-the-wall comments. I just hope he’s OK. The problem going on is when you have people disguising as media putting out reports, and then people believing what they read. We don’t know what’s fact, we don’t know what’s true. We just hope he’s OK.”
Brown, the embattled rapper who had a highly-publicized throwdown with fellow singer Rihanna in which he reportedly struck her, is no stranger to public embarassment over a domestic incident. His case is still going strong as Rihanna recently took to "20/20" for a TV interview and Brown is scheduled to appear on the same show later this month. So it's no surprise that Brown was sympathetic.
"wow...the world is so one-sided...case closed?...just like that?"
R+B singer Solange Knowles, best known for her booty-shaking older sister Beyonce, opted for a different stance on the topic, deciding instead to focus on jilted women gone wild.
"When mistresses go mad part 148,673...Money loss, career down the drain, death!!?? When do they learn?"
