Tiger Woods has charmed his way into canoodling with yet another chick! But there’s no need to alert his therapist: The reformed sex addict was spotted getting close to the woman he’s actually married to, the very forgiving Elin Nordegren.
On Monday, “they were hugging and they were kissing right out in the open,” a gawker in their Florida neighborhood told Radar Online. “Elin is certainly a lot more relaxed these days, and so is he. People in the neighborhood are getting used to seeing them together again.”
It was just last week that the Swedish beauty finally accepted her hubby’s entreaties to move back into the home they shared with their two children.
“They’ve come a long, long way” since revelations of his multiple infidelities, the source said. “There was a time when she wouldn’t even look at him.”
“There’s no question the divorce has been called off now,” an insider said. “He’s winning her back.”
We certainly wish the reunited Mr. and Mrs. Woods the best. But we can’t help but wonder if it’s Tiger’s sponsors that he’s really interested in winning back.
Maddenson moving in?
After dating only since December, Holly Madison and Benji Madden reportedly are ready to move in together! Despite rumors that the former “Girls Next Door” star and the Good Charlotte rocker had gone their separate ways, she’s planning to relocate from Las Vegas to L.A. to be close to him, a source told In Touch magazine.
“Benji cares very much for Holly. They have been talking about living together,” said the insider, who spotted them canoodling last week at a video shoot, where “Benji kept telling her how amazing she looked. They couldn’t keep their eyes off each other.”
And yet, we’re worried this might be too soon. After all, Holly relocated to Vegas in the first place to be with her then-beau Criss Angel — and that hot-and-heavy romance fizzled out practically before her bags were unpacked. (As for her prior relationship history, we’re not even going to go there.)
So apparently all those dirty looks George Clooney flashed at the Oscars were all in good fun. Though the “Up in the Air” nominee was caught on camera glowering as hosts Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin ribbed him onstage, his rep insisted to Entertainment Weekly that “both Alec and Steve told him ahead of time” they’d be poking fun at the notorious prankster.
“It was something George and Alec agreed upon,” said an insider, who told the New York Daily News that the actor and the host were mugging for each other when the cameras weren’t on them. “It was a ‘follow-my-lead’ sort of thing.”
Well, that’s certainly a lot more professional than the explanation Gawker floated for George’s attitude. After the actor was seen on the red carpet with a silver flask, the snarky site speculated that his mood simply soured when the drinks ran dry. Hmmm ...
Housewife’s new guy
Don’t cry for the Countess. Although “Real Housewives of NYC” star LuAnn de Lesseps suffered the embarrassment of her titled husband leaving her for another woman — and her NYC cast mates added insult to injury by calling the commoner-born socialite “Count-less” (wish we’d thought of that one!) — she’s now found happiness in the arms of a new man.
The jilted LuAnn has moved on to Jacques Azoulay, a French wine distributor who took her to Paris for Valentine’s Day. “We were in the City of Light. It was really romantic,” the countess told In Touch. Le sigh!
Her new beau “likes to read poetry, and he plays the piano! He’s just so wonderful,” LuAnn said. “I’m definitely happy and having a great time. I can’t even believe it!”
We’re pinching ourselves. It’s just such a relief to know the countess will be OK! (Oui, that was le sarcasme.)
