Happy New Year and we hope that you all had a wonderful and safe holidays! If you’ve been wondering what some of our favorite stars have been up to, the good news is that the coming year looks bright for Hollywood and while many of the celebs have moved on to new beginnings, some have remained right where we left them in 2009. This much can be said for Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren who, haven’t yet officially filed for divorce but, if their behavior over this past festive season is any indication, divorce is a short skip and hop away.
Tiger spent the holidays as per Tiger, as we’ve come to know him. Hanging outside of New York hotels with all kinds of different women while he knocks himself out with liquor and caffeine and has various areas of the hotel shut down whenever he wishes to use them. From TMZ,
“There are a slew of photogs gathered outside the Trump International Hotel in New York City — all because of a rumor Tiger Woods is inside.
The story goes like this: Tiger checked in on New Year’s Day and booked a block of rooms under an assumed name. He allegedly replaced hotel security with his own detail, locking down an entire floor.
This morning, we’re told, Tiger had the gym locked down from 4:00-6:00 AM.
So here’s where it gets hard to swallow … Tiger has allegedly been seen going in and out of the hotel with a leggy blonde. He also, allegedly, ordered up 20 bottles of vodka and 15 cases of Red Bull to his hotel room … after two more women showed up to his room.
Sound like Tiger to you? Us neither.”
Meanwhile, what his wife, Elin Nordegren, doing while her sleazy husband was once again cavorting wherever and whenever he could Jon Gosselin style? She was hitting the slopes in Aspen and having a quiet, but wonderful holiday, and birthday, celebration with friends. From People,
“Ideally, the situation should have been relaxing: A New Year’s Eve celebration coinciding with a birthday. Spent with family. In one of the most fashionable ski resorts in the world. At a favorite restaurant known for casual and informal dining.
Except for one mitigating factor: The guest of honor was Elin Nordegren. Mrs. Tiger Woods.
After an isolated Christmas, Nordegren surfaced in the company of her twin sister Josefine in the French Alps. The pair, along with Josefine’s husband, Daniel Lönnborg, arrived last Sunday, Dec. 27, at Switzerland’s Geneva Airport, according to reports, and spent a largely unobserved week with friends in a rented chalet in Les Houches, just outside the ski resort of Chamonix.
A five-man French security team, hired for the week, assured the group’s privacy on the slopes.
On Thursday evening, New Year’s Eve, Nordegren surfaced at a celebration in Chamonix. The party – which included a special menu at the Swedish-run restaurant Le Munchie on the resort’s Rue de Moulins – was attended by eight, including Josefine and Lönnborg, as well as several other friends and relatives.
Sources indicate the mood at the table was bright and animated as Elin, who has been to Le Munchie on previous trips, spoke a mix of Swedish and English at the table and with staffers.
“She was having a good time,” a friend tells PEOPLE. “As good of a time as possible. Under the circumstances.”
At midnight, Elin and Josefine and friends rang in the New Year’s with a champagne toast, beginning a low-key celebration of their mutual 30th birthday. “They stayed on quite late,” one eyewitness tells PEOPLE.
The following day, after sleeping in late, Elin was out on the slopes in the company of Lönnborg. Reportedly, a quiet birthday dinner, prepared by the chalet’s staff, was held inside the rented chalet by the vacation party, which had already begun packing for departure.
On Saturday morning, Elin and Lönnborg were spotted back out on the ski trails.
Reports circulating in the area indicate that Nordegren left Chamonix on Sunday, heading back toward the U.S., where 2010 awaits her.”
So what does this year bring for both of these two? For Elin I’d say a big fat paycheck, whether she divorces the slime or not and for Tiger, well, it doesn’t look good. His sponsors keep dropping him so the well will run out there eventually. Not that it matters, he does have more money than God. But he’s likely to lose his family. And his reputation has already been flushed down the toilet. There’s no doubt that 2010 is definitely going to need to be a year of rebuilding for Tiger Woods. And if his behavior continues to be anything like it was this past holiday season, it doesn’t look like he’s going to work to make that happen.
