Tiger Woods’ mistress count is holding at seven (update: it’s up to ten)

2009 Australian Masters - Day 3

I don’t even know where to start with this Tiger Woods stuff. Women are coming out of the damn woodwork to claim they either had brief assignations with the golf pro, or to admit having extended, years-long affairs. First up, we have Cori Rist, whose profession is unknown. The New York Daily News’ Rush & Malloy make her sound, at best, like some vapid club girl, and at worst, like a hooker.

Could another Tiger Woods girlfriend be lurking in the tall grass?

Sources tell us that, until recently, one of his favorite traveling companions was a delicious blond named Cori Rist. And, unlike some other reputed mistresses, Rist is not denying the rumors – she’s simply keeping mum. It’s said that Woods met Rist, who is a regular at some of Manhattan’s better clubs, at Butter last year.

“They went on to another party,” says one insider. “One thing led to another and, pretty soon, Tiger was flying her to hook up with him on tour. “Tiger would typically get a large suite at a hotel. Someone would book Cori an adjacent room, so she wouldn’t be seen coming into his room.”

For a while, sources say, Rist, 31, found the intrigue fun. “He would get the presidential suite,” says the same source. “It was the ultimate in luxury. The trouble is, he never wanted to leave the room.”

A longtime buddy, someone Woods trusted, recalls Tiger introducing him to Rist. “I remember she was quite attractive,” says the pal.

But that encounter is said to have been an exception. “He didn’t want to risk anyone seeing them together,” says our first source. “After about six months of this, she started to get tired of being cooped up. She felt like a bird in a gilded cage.”

We ran all of these claims past Rist. “No comment,” said Rist, who lives in a posh pad on the East Side.

On any of it? “Not at this time.”

Hmmm. Maybe she just doesn’t want to be sucked into the media storm. Or maybe she’s looking for a deal like Tiger’s other ladies. He’s paying Rachel Uchitel more than $1 million, according to Radar. US Weekly paid Jaimee Grubbs $150,000 for “photos,” according to Gawker, though we hear she got half that.

The longtime buddy, who has known Woods since the golf champ was 20, believes the women who have been named so far “are just the tip of the iceberg.” Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg, did not respond to detailed questions.

“I love Tiger,” adds the pal, shaking his head. “But he got careless. He’s been doing this for years. He wanted to run with the big dogs. He saw all the action that Michael Jordan was getting on the side. But even Michael forgot you have to be discreet. You can’t rub your wife’s face in it. ”

Asked about reports that Tiger has boosted Elin’s prenup to $55 million, the friend said, “That’s peanuts to Tiger. But, unfortunately, I think he’d be better off not married – if he wants to pursue that lifestyle.”

[From The New York Daily News]

Who else do we have? Let’s see… there’s this woman, Jamie Jungers– not to be confused with Jaimee Grubbs, who came out in Us Weekly last week with all of those text messages and such. Jungers is a blonde “model” in Las Vegas, and she likely met Tiger in Las Vegas. Once again, it looks like Tiger paid for her to travel to different cities so they could get it on. This all happened in 2005-2006, apparently. When he was first married to Elin. The Sun is also reporting that Tiger had an affair with an as-yet unknown “sexy British telly presenter.” They quote a “golf insider” who claimed: “He would hook up with her when he went to the UK. She’s really sexy and very well-known. A very famous golfer – a good friend of mine – told me about it years ago.”

So, what are we up to? Rachel Uchitel, Jamiee Grubbs, Jamie Junger, Cori Rist, Kolika Moquin, random British woman… next up: chain restaurant manager Mindy Lawton. Lawton sold her story to News of the World, but the basics are that they had a year long affair, starting in May 2006. Lawton says: “He really did like it quite rough. He wanted to spank me and loved pulling my hair as we had sex. He also liked me to talk dirty to him, but hair-pulling was what really turned him on.” Tiger allegedly just “wanted sex” and he was “a selfish, heartless man.” Oh, and they had sex in every room in his house except for the bedroom he shared with Elin. The Daily Mail has every f-cking detail – literally. Gross.

Personally, I’m sick of all this bullsh-t. I hope this is the last mistress we hear about for … say, the next few days. Because it stopped being funny a while ago. And yet… speaking of, for one last moment with Tiger, we have Saturday Night Live’s hilarious spoof of Tiger and Elin:

Update by Celebitchy: People Magazine is counting, and Tiger’s list of alleged mistresses is up to ten.

    It’s time for Elin to put a GPS ankle bracelet on Tiger.

    Why did he marry Elin? She may stick around a little longer for the financial security for herself and the children, but he cannot possibly repair his marriage at this point.

  2. Ursula says:

    Good question, why did he get married? I am sure the endorsements would have come whether or not he was married. Elin is a beautiful girl. I really feel for her. But by now she realises it wasn’t anything wrong she did, oh maybe her failure to realise that she was marrying a male prostie.

    How in heaven does he manage an active career and juggling all these women behind his wife’s back?’

    Enough of tiger, can we move on?

  3. Tess says:

    Speaking of stick….

    Time to stick a fork in Tiger.

    He’s done.

  4. Meow says:

    Tiger and his Harem of Sl/ts are revolting. He is in a class of man pig all on his own. The women are stupid to think coming out for money and temporary fame will be good for them.

  5. mel says:

    If I were Elin, I would leave his a$$. I dont care how much money he has, it’s not about the money anymore, it’s about contracting HIV and STDs.

  6. Sam says:

    I still like Tiger… so he has a zipper problem… and?
    I blame all the open legged hussies quick to jump on a married man’s d@%k!

  7. Beth says:

    I think some of these women are lying. At least the part saying it was long term relationship and not a one night stand. I find it hard to believe that he has the energy and time to see 4 or 5 women at the same time, have a wife and 2 young kids, play golf, and do public appearrances at the same time. Tiger would be a real life Engergizer Bunny.

  8. Firestarter says:

    Tiger is one classy man!

  9. Dobben says:

    This is getting ridiculous!

    Not to excuse his behaviour but it seems like he has a sex addiction…

    I just don’t get why he’d cheat so much, AND be stupid enough to think it’d never come to light.

  10. lway says:

    I am so dissapointed 🙁 I cannot believe that Tiger is so low! He’ll only learn what it is to have a family and a dedicated wife when he loses it all 🙁

  11. diva says:

    The more I hear about these hos coming forward I think Elin should just leave. This is just too much for any woman to take, especially a “lingerie model” and I also heard about a porn star not mentioned here. His behavior is just too disgusting for any decent woman with any self-respect to forgive him and trust him again. He could have subjected her to stds, aids, and now public ridicule. She has already reworked the prenup and with all this explosive information coming forward she could get the best lawyer and easily get half to save him further embarassment. Time to leave, this is one of the worst cases of cheating I have ever seen or heard about.

  12. javelin says:

    You would think with 7 mistresses there would be more variety.. instead he only beds fame-hungry white women. What a shallow, predictable, foolish man Tiger Woods has turned out to be. Even if his wife sticks around everyone will know his marriage is an icy charade of distrust.

  13. CYANN says:

    Where is Lorena Bobbit when you need her?

  14. Kelly says:

    Absolutely Javelin. I think the only shock left at this point will be if one of the women turns out to be black.

  15. bella says:

    Really? I read it was now up to 9!

  16. Raven says:

    I thought she should stick it out originally, but I’ve changed my mind–maybe enough to get the big chunk of change, but then leave. If Michael Jordan is his hero for doing that much cheating, no matter what he tells his wife now, he’ll be back at it before long.

  17. bella says:

    What’s the difference between a hooker and Tiger’s other women? Hookers know they are just a piece of ass, they have some discretion and know how to keep their mouths shut, and they get paid to get laid. These women are just fame-seeking sluts who give it away to the highest “celeb” they come in contact with and seek payment later from tabloids and/or blackmail.


  18. Kelly says:

    And another thing…

    Why do we rush to crucify what’s-his-name for beating up his girlfriend, but we laugh at SNL’s depiction of similar violence?

    Reverse the roles in this video, and we’d be righteously appalled and indignant.

  19. westender says:

    Not to excuse Tiger’s behavior, but since some of these women are rumoured to be paid off to not tell their stories. Why is that not considered blackmail? I honestly do not know what is worse, being paid to spill the dirt on Tiger or being paid to keep quiet.
    Everyone involved just comes across as very low class/sleazy and greedy.

  20. wow says:

    Screw a GPS bracelet. Divorce his ass and call it a damn day. Who could even want to live that way…being anxious and wondering if your spouse (man or woman) is cheating on you every time he’s away from you? Especially when its already proventhat he does and will. That’s insane. And this behaviour is so nasty and yet so prevelant. Its beyond gross. I have no sympathy for him, his wife or these floozies. They all desserve what they get at this point.

  21. Nicole says:

    How long until someone comes out saying they have his “love child”? That’s the next step in this whole thing….

    I honestly think I’d have more respect for Tiger if he’d quit throwing his money around to make everyone sht up about his affairs.

  22. wow says:

    @ Kelley – I want to hug you for making that point. (((Kelley))) So true. I’m more surprised at the double standard than finding out another person has cheated on their spouse. Cheating spouses are almost a given nowadays, not shock worthy. But a woman beating a man is…entertainment? SMH.

    I wish Elin would have been classy enough to just walk away when she found out more about this. Just have some dignity and say “if those wh*res is what you want, then go be with them because you’re not having me and them.” And then she should have kicked rocks, not kicked Tiger’s ass. I never understand the whole “stay for the kids” thing. He will still be their Father, regardless. And neither her or the kids would starve, even if she only leaves with the initial pre-nup agreement.

    Ugh. This goes out to Elin, Tiger and the floozies – have some self respect and self worth. Tiger – Don’t go outside your marriage, Elin – teach people how to treat you. Don’t accept certain behaviours from anyone, Floozies/Himbos – keep your legs closed to married men & women; trademark Nene from Housewives of Atlanta.

    Class dismissed.

  23. angie says:

    I think Jon Gosselin needs a new BFF! Maybe Tiger could apply for the job!

  24. Andrea says:

    If Tiger was married to a black woman no one would care and this story would have been old news by now. But since he’s married to Snow WHITE everyone is outraged.

  25. fizXgirl314 says:

    sam, I assume you are male… it’s so like a man to blame the women in a situation like this.

    anybody who thinks men beating women is the same as women being men is ignorant and foolish… Show me the statistics that say female on male crime is a huge issue, and maybe we’ll take that shit seriously… something like 95% of abuse cases are male on female…

    I still can’t seem to fathom why a woman would make a statement about this like they really don’t get what the difference is… does it REALLY have to be said…


    please, as women, think about what a huge problem violence against women is before saying something ignorant like that… it trivializes the situation… it not only invites more violence toward females, it also excuses it…

  26. Feebee says:

    I think it’s time for Elin to can his ass.

    It’s also time for his sponsors to take a hard look at their association with him. I thought if Elin stayed, they’d stay but even if she does, as others have said, we’d know it was a charade.

    The more we find out in terms of numbers and character of his, umm, F*&< buddies (mistress is too classy a term) and thus his character makes endorsement association look icky and just unacceptable.

  27. ogechi says:


  28. irishserra says:

    Gotta like the warped thinking of that “buddy” of Tiger’s, don’t you? “He got careless…you have to be discreet…can’t rub your wife’s face in it.”

    There’s the problem right there. This is how these men view infidelity: as long as you’re not found out, it’s really okay.

    So disappointing.

  29. Lantana says:

    LOL – best friends with Jon Gosselin! I do agree. And I also agree with all who ask, “WHY did he get married?” It has to be something about increasing his appeal to get endorsement $$$ as obviously he has no regard for a true marriage.

  30. crash2GO2 says:

    He got married because he wanted have his cake and eat it too. The security of a family and someone to have his children, raise them and take care of them. A prop of respectability from behind which he could do his thing.

  31. Dianne says:

    What I want to know is – when did he have time to put his pants back on and play golf?

  32. skibunny says:

    Get a grip #24. Race has nothing to do with it. Why even bring that up?

  33. CandyKay says:

    Welllllll….hasn’t Shaquille O’Neal been stepping out on his wife for many, many years? How long did Michael Jordan cat around before it was officially reported? What about Denzel Washington?

  34. CYANN says:

    @ Andrea

    I don’t think race really has much to do with it. People were not happy when Michael Jordans cheating was exposed. The outrage wasn’t there because he did not exude the wholesome image Tiger does. Not to mention, I cannot recall him having as many women come out as Tiger either.

    The fact that Tiger chooses white women only, exposes his race issues, not the media’s.

  35. Goddess711 says:

    Sounds like it might be easier just to take a poll: “women who HAVEN’T had sex with Tiger Woods”.

  36. I Choose Me says:

    Why all the freaking uproar is all I want to know. Because he’s famous? So damn what! Why are we constantly putting celebs on a pedestal then shaking our heads or cackling when they fall. He cheated, he got caught, he’s got to deal with the consequences, namely the end of his marriage perhaps but how exactly is this different from any other pro athlete who can’t keep it his pants? Why is this getting so much freaking coverage!!!

  37. KR says:

    Parade of the TigerSluts continues–next love children/sex tapes/orgies/trannies/sheep/goats? Let’s stop w/ridiculous “affairs/mistress” descriptions and get real-–Tiger Woods is hair-pulling,butt-slapping,pile-driving eager sluts (in red panties) from coast to coast!– “at 6am in church parking lots,not “in” the car,but up against the Caddy,frantically” says Mindy Lawson,TigerSlut #5–-corporate “family man” image GONE! Elin w/few hundred mills GONE!

  38. Tiger Woods says:

    1st off dont buy a Buick, Nikes, Tag watches, EA 2K video games, Gillete shaving cream, and please forget your American Express. Im sure they’ll be dropping me soon. 2nd, Yes I cheated on my wife and deserve to be punished for my sexual desires and lack of being satisfied with ONE beautiful woman. 3rd, Why is it that the media and general public spread wrong doings like a California wildfire? Also and finally wheres the negative articles as Sam geniously worded about the hussies who stepped out on a married womans husband. I know I know, it takes two to tango.

  39. Truth@40 says:

    Im a 40 woman with a different spin on the Tiger Drama, I think Tiger is a HO HO!! However I do find that we have some very silly minded people in this world.
    This one lady said “Elin should leave him and take half.} Why would Elin Woods be entitled to half of a billion, what did she do to earn any of that money? This woman has a high school education, she won the lotto when she married him, in short he married the HELP!

    Nike endorsed Tiger because they make golf stuff, they don’t make marriage stuff? Tiger never, claimed to be a perfect man, husband or father like some of these GOP law makes. He only every claimed to be “A Golfer” That is it.

    What blows my mind is the fact that the media and simple minded people are trying to make Tiger out to be some monster who hurt sweet innocence Elin, well guess what? we don’t know what was going on in that marriage, we don’t know if Elin was a bitch on wheels behind closed door’s or not we don’t even know if all the grimey Ho’s coming forward are tell the truth. How easy it for our society to believe the worst about a person.
    Let looks at the facts, Tiger nor Elin has said a word about these HoHo .
    Furthermore why would we take the word of any woman who is proud to claim that she is a home wrecking Ho who will sleep with a man they don’t love just so they can say they did, what does this say about there character? What does that say about Our character!

  40. crash2GO2 says:

    Truth@40, she bore him 2 children. She has run his household for however many years they have been married. The most undervalued worker in America is the housewife. As a 45 year old former full time worker now full time mom, I can tell you that full time mom/home maker is way more demanding than my 9 to 5 ever was, even though it paid a whole lot better.

  41. Hi, Neat post. There’s a problem along with your site in internet explorer, could test this? IE still is the marketplace leader and a large component to people will pass over your great writing due to this problem.
