Tiger's Wife Debates Going to His Press Conference

Elin Wants No Part of Press Conference
Sources close to Tiger Woods tell me his handlers are hoping that his wife Elin will be present Friday at his press event to announce when the troubled golfer will be returning to the game. Unfortunately, she hasn't said yes yet.
"It's hard enough for her to try and make this marriage work after what he did to her and their children," an insider tells me. "The last thing she wants to do right now is stand next to him in front of him and the world's press. What message is she sending to her daughter and women and girls around the world."
It seems to me that poor Elin cant win. If she isn't present, her absence speaks volumes, but if she does attend, that isn't the message any woman wants to send (even though Kobe Bryant's wife sat beside him in his press conference ... with a brand new apology diamond on her finger).
Whatever you choose to do, Elin, I hope we all remember you have done nothing wrong and can work things out so that the kids are OK.
Will John Mayer Reveal Why Jen and Brad Really Split?
A gal who thought she was dating John Mayer (until he appeared on the cover of InTouch with Jennifer Aniston) back in 2008 tells me that the crooner "has this incredible power of getting you to reveal everything." So, with him being the squeeze of Jennifer Aniston for a while, was he able to get all of the dirt about her divorce from Brad Pitt?
"He lets you talk and talk, gently asking intimate questions until you have told him stuff you wouldn't tell anyone. I bet he knows everything about what really happened between Jen and Brad," my source says.
And it seems it's not just Jennifer who is worried about intimate secrets she revealed to Mayer. His other ex, Jennifer Love Hewitt, is also worried about what Mayer might say about her wonderland body.
"JLH is extremely concerned about what attention-seeking John might say next. He has proven he can't keep anything secret. She has never forgiven him for using their relationship with her back in 2006 in his failed bid to be a stand up comedian."
It looks like no one is laughing now. Thankfully for Jen, it seems as if John is keeping his mouth shut for a while following his Playboy disaster.
'SNL' Cast Join in Push for Betty White
Although the talented cast of 'SNL' has nothing to do with booking the celebrity host each week -- a decision left entirely to 'SNL' creator and Executive Producer, Lorne Michaels -- it can't hurt that they are thrilled with the recent push about Betty White hosting the show.
"Are you kidding me? It would be amazing," said one insider. "The skits on the 'Golden Girls' would be amazing, plus I hear Betty does a brilliant Barbara Bush impersonation."
Please 'SNL,' listen to your cast and get this lady booked before we have to suffer through another January Jones again. Or just have Jon Hamm on every week.
Joy Behar's Beating the 9pm Boys
Congratulations to my friend Joy Behar, who's often beating the boys at 9 PM with her brilliant show on Headline News.
Joy has worked hard to get where she is, even after many told her she would never have her own show. She has proved them all wrong. If you're not already watching, give it a try. Her program examines the watercooler issues that Americans are talking about every day, with topics ranging from pop culture to politics and everything in between.
She also has the best guests ... including the occasional appearance by (wait for it) me!
