Obviously, plenty could be said about golfer Tiger Woods’ live press release where he ‘fessed up about his extra-marital affairs, apologized to just about everyone on the planet, and basically told the world to stay out of his personal business.
I’m fine with that. All I want is to see him get back on the golf course and dominate like he used to.
What’s really gotten under my fingernails is that one of his alleged mistresses is continuing to be an attention whore by acting like she’s some sort of victim in all of this.
I’m talking about Veronica Siwik-Daniels, a former porn star known as Joslyn James who hails from a little town five minutes from me called Mayfield, N.Y.
Shortly after Woods’ long-awaited mea culpa, Siwik-Daniels had her own press conference, saying she’s owed a personal apology from Tiger.
It’s absolutely pathetic, on so many levels.
For starters, Siwik-Daniels (who all of a sudden is using her real name after allowing her porn star name and porn star image to be used for months after the Woods’ scandal unfolds) is obviously trying to stay in the spotlight while you rarely hear from any of the golfer’s other former mistresses.
Second, we are not talking about someone who has a great track record. Her career in porn aside, we are talking about someone who claims she got pregnant twice by Woods but never told him and also owes thousands of dollars in back child support payments.
We’re also talking about someone who knowingly engaged in an affair with a married man and BRAGGED about it, including to members of her own family.
So do the math.
A stupid little girl from a hick town builds a career by having sex with strange men on camera for money; prostitutes do the same thing, only the camera will probably cost you extra. She hooks up with a worldwide celebrity worth millions, a celebrity she had to know was married unless she was spending too much time under a rock (or something else that rhymes with rock).
And instead of laying low like many of this worldwide celebrity’s mistresses, she continues to run her mouth and even holds her own media event that’s just as staged as her former lover’s event.
And she claims all she wants is a face to face apology? I even doubt people in Mayfield will believe that.
Look, there’s no denying that Tiger Woods’ behavior was reprehensible, but let’s face it, Woods was just as much a notch on these women’s bedposts as they were on his. If he wasn’t Tiger Woods, most, if not all, of these women probably wouldn’t have given him the time of day.
Woods is obviously scrambling to right the ship, but it’s a ship none of us has any right to be sailing on because it’s a private cruise. He screwed up big time, got caught, admitted he was wrong and that he let a lot of people down.
Now that he’s done that, all I want to see is him get back on the golf course and dominate. That’s why I, and millions of other people, have watched him over the years.
But as far as Siwik-Daniels, or Joslyn James, goes, in the words of fictional motivational speaker Matt Foley, he doesn’t owe you JACK SQUAT because you knew exactly what you were getting into.
