TMZ Reporting that Tiger's Wife Caused His Injuries - Not the Car Accident

TMZ is now reporting that Tiger's wife Elin Nordegren scratched the golfer's face up after confronting him about reports that he was having an affair with Rachel Uchitel.  Tiger Woods then tried to escape his angry wife who allegedly chased after him with a golf club, beating on his car and breaking his window.  At this point a distracted Tiger hit the fire hydrant and then the tree. Rachel Uchitel denies the affair.

Tiger Woods may have been taking prescription painkillers at the time of the crash.  The couple have two small children together.  Elin apparently pulled her husband out of the vehicle and placed him in the road where she was standing over him when police arrived.  He was reportedly unconscious for up to six minutes.  Radar Online has photos of the accident scene with the vehicle wrapped around the tree.

David Hasselhoff Found Unconscious in his Residence - Rushed to Hospital

David Hasselhoff, 57, was taken to the hospital after he was found unconscious and his daughter, Haley, called 911.  He was apparantly drooling with his eyes rolled back in his head when found.  He was transported to the hospital just prior to noon on Friday.  

Haley last called 911 for her father in September when he was hospitalized for drinking.  David Hasselhoff reportedly takes anti-seizure medication and it is possible that he suffered a seizure in this incidence.  It is also possible that the hospitalization is alcohol related, as he has been hospitalized for alcohol poisoning several times in the past and has reportedly been involved in additional alcohol related incidents in both October and November of this year.

Polanski Out on Bail in Switzerland

Roman Polanski has gotten out on bail.  He has put up $4.5 million to get on house arrest in Switzerland.   This is a man with unlimited resources who has a history of flight risk.  Good job, Switzerland.  Polanski has been negotiating with Switzerland ever since he was arrested, apparently he doesn't like jail.  Little girls don't like being raped, either.  I'm convinced he will never see justice.

Adam Lambert Humps Someone's Face, Kisses a Man on TV: People Get Upset

Adam Lambert gave a performance at the American Movie Awards that was extremely reminiscent of David Bowie's over-the-top performances.   He was pretending to hump a male dancers face one minute, then moving on to lead leather clad men around on leashes with a whip.  Near the end of the song he grabbed his male keyboardist and kissed him fully on the mouth.  He also flipped off the audience.

People are upset, ABC has reportedly logged about 1,500 complaints.  However, he was the last act of the night, airing around 11 pm in most places.  The FCC general rules cover only between 6am and 10pm but leave open the possibility of fines after this time period for obscene material.  ABC has said that the offending material was not included in Lambert's rehearsals. 

Some people, including Adam Lambert, are saying that the uproar is a double standard because women have done the kiss before, at award shows.  There may be a double standard but I would also like to point out a distinction.  The other award show with the Madonna/Britney Spears kiss was the MTV Video Music Awards, MTV is a cable channel, ABC is a broadcast channel and as such, is generally held to higher standards by the FCC.

Interesting points in her Friday court filing include that Eddie makes at least $60,000 a week (gross) on his new show, CSI: Miami.  Apparently the mortgage alone is $11,942.  She spends $3,000 a month on clothing, $4,000 on entertainment, $4,000 on eating out, and an anticipated $2000 car payment.  Brandi also states in the filing that the children have been with her 90% of the time since the separation and that she doesn't want Eddie to come to her house unless he is invited.  She also says that Eddie Cibrian will not tell her his exact address.  In addition she wants $50,000 in attorney fees.

Brandi told E! Entertainment last week that she doesn't want LeAnn Rimes to meet her kids.  She feels it's way too soon and that the children are already confused.
