Reports: Tiger mulling the Oprah Option?

Dec 7, 2009, 2:00 PM EDT

As yet more women line up to tell sordid tales of their alleged affairs with Tiger Woods, I am reminded of this line from A Night at the Opera: When the manicurist enters Groucho’s cabin and asks how he wants his nails, Grouch replies, “You better make them short, it’s getting kind of crowded in here.” And so Woods may be seeking the ultimate answer in an attempt to save his war-torn image; an appearance on Oprah Winfrey’s talk show. (It would have been Larry King, but the host could not provide solid assurances that he wouldn’t doze off).

From the Herald:

Tiger Woods, whose aversion to intimate revelations is legendary, is considering an invitation to appear on the sofa of talk show queen Oprah Winfrey.

For the interview to work — quite possibly with Elin Nordegren, the wife on whom he cheated, by his side — Woods, 33, would have to engage in the sort of public confessional that has been anathema to him.

His minders have not granted such access since a 1997 interview with men’s magazine GQ backfired after he was quoted telling dirty and racial jokes.

The Oprah strategy is under discussion in Camp Tiger as a series of tawdry new claims emerge about Woods’ alleged infidelities after he admitted unspecified ”transgressions” and ”sins” last week.

And how about this: Alleged Tiger mistress Jaimee Grubbs in an actual Tiger costume. You’re welcome.

    Elin: take the money and run while you are still young. He has made a mockery of family and marriage. He doesn’t deserve or appreciate what he has. He has a serious sex addiction problem which he needs to addresssed ASAP.
    I really don’t believe anything can be resolved by going on Oprah with Elin. His image has been seriously damaged.

    Dear Oprah Love You, subject “Tiger woods” Tiger Woods as we all know. Is a Young Black Man, that made it to the top of the entertainment and golf world,through hard work and study.And apparently has a very great lust and desire for “Trashed White Women.” Including his “White Gold Digging Wife.” If thats what You want to call her.But the truth is “Tiger Woods,White Wife” Is no different from the rest of those Wholes he had sex with.And she can’t pertend she’s any better than him or those he slept with before or after she married him. The White media wants to make her looked like she’s some kind of an angel,when in fact she is not.
    She only married “Tigger Woods” for the money.Look at the way
    she is negotiating with him for more money, not for loves sake or
    for forgivenes sake but more money. Making her the highest paid hole of them all.She some how quickly forgot Tiger Woods took her poor ass out of the Ghetto and give her everything she wanted.

    Part two “Tigger Woods affairs With trashed white women.” Believe this or not. Somehow, someway, the truth is going to come out about his gold digging wife. And that crazy white so called friend of his that introduce “Tigger Woods To That Slut.” Making public statments about how he never shouldn’t have introduce her too “Tigger Woods.” He’s right because if he really cared about “Tigger” he wouldn’t have introduced him, to her in the first place. Knowing all she wanted was money and fame.If “Tigger Woods” was willing to save her poor broke white ass. Why can’t she do the same for him?. All those white golf players was glad too get the bad news about “Tiger.” Hoping this will made him a bad golf player.But I got News for them all, it’s going to make him the greatest golf player of all times. Just watch and see,and pay me later for this predition.And if I was Tiger I wouldn’t pay out any more money, to those wholes.My advice
    to “Tiger” get you a Black Women, and cut you lost.We are waiting.

    It’s interesting to me how news outlets in Australia and the UK are getting more of a scoop than US news outlets. Lame. Can’t believe any of them. I think it’s all speculation. Like Tiger is really going to go on Oprah WITH his wife. He needs to go on Dr. Phil with his wife and get counseled for being such an idiot.

    To Harry/Harry Drone,
    You sound like a complete idiot – do you know anything about the current Mrs. Woods? Tiger did not save her “white ass” by marrying her – she comes from a relatively wealthy family and was doing just fine by herself. Also, did you take a poll of all the white PGA golfers to come up with your stupid comment about how they’re glad that Tiger is in trouble? The problem with sites like this are the a$$holes like you who spout off and say anything to make themselves feel better. I have a suggestion for you Harry – get off your mama’s couch and get a job because your lack of writing ability is only outmatched by your stupidity!

    What the hell is relatively wealthy family. Relatively wealthy families only want more wealth. She could not wait to get more money from the pre-nup. If she was so stupid not to know the man screwed around with 7,8,9 women what does that make her.
    You sound like one of those- who likes to call people stupid because they do not care to speak or write the King’s English like you.
    What he is saying is quite clear but your superiority complex is showing.
    All the people around him -guess who- can’t wait to get their hands on some of the money.

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
