Is Tiger's girlfriend enamored by another guy's putts?

Posted: September 13, 2013

IS TIGER WOODS' girlfriend, Lindsey Vonn, playing with some other guy's club?

The National Enquirer reports - so you know it has to be true - that Vonn was caught in a lengthy, deep smooch with a familiar, older gentleman backstage at a Justin Timberlake/ Jay Z concert last month in Miami.

Lindsey denied it all to London's Daily Mail.

"There is not an ounce of truth in this clearly made-up story," a Lindsey rep told Mail Online.

Real lawyers of N.J.

According to the Record, authorities say Mark McGuire, of Franklin Lakes, N.J., told police that he was an attorney for two cast members of the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" but falsely represented himself as a lawyer.

Authorities say McGuire spent more than 45 minutes with Jacqueline and Christopher Laurita as they were interviewed by police after a March altercation in Ridgewood. Detectives later discovered that McGuire had falsely represented himself.

What's the big deal? Jacqueline falsely represents herself as a housewife.

* Needing a lawyer - a real one - is Suge Knight.

The former hip-hop mogul has been arrested on an outstanding warrant after being pulled over for a traffic violation in Los Angeles.

Police Officer Sara Faden says the founder of Death Row Records was stopped shortly after midnight yesterday near Beverly Hills. She declined to say what the alleged traffic violation was.

But there were no bullet holes in the car's windows, so it's all good.

Tattle in Toronto

Now that we're back in the good ol' U.S. of A., here are a few random notes from our six days at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Harvey Weinstein is a throwback producer in the best sense of the word: He actually understands promotion.

Before the world premiere of director David Frankel's "One Chance" on Monday, a Weinstein Co. news release touted the appearance of Taylor Swift, there to promote the song that she wrote and sang for the film's end credits.

So, you have a biopic about British opera singer Paul Potts starring a bunch of Brits not too widely known on this side of the pond and the street outside the theater is packed with shrieking girls causing a scene hoping for a glimpse of Taylor.

Then before the film, Harvey promises a surprise after the film. More shrieking from the 50 or so girls who managed to get the pricey tickets inside.

After the film comes the big surprise, and it's not Taylor singing her song live (although she did smile and answer questions) - it's the real Paul Potts, in formal wear, blowing the roof off the place with a performance of " Nessun Dorma."

Except for maybe 50 disappointed girls, the theater went nuts.

That's how you promote a movie, folks.

* At the film's after-party, Taylor reportedly was very flirty with up-and-coming Aussie actor Brenton Thwaites ("Blue Lagoon: The Awakening").

* While in Toronto, Weinstein also paid a princely sum for distribution of the romantic "Can a Song Save Your Life?" starring Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightley. "Song" was directed by John Carney, who helmed "Once."

In other purchases, Focus Features picked up "Bad Words," the directorial debut of Jason Bateman, who also stars as a politically incorrect adult who tries to win a children's spelling bee.

Also, Well Go USA got the rights to "McCanick," a gritty Philly cop drama, shot here and starring local guys David Morse and Mike Vogel (and the late Cory Monteith, who's very good as a young male hustler/dealer).

In a very typical Toronto moment, we saw "McCanick," left the theater and spotted co-star Ciaran Hinds on the street a few blocks away.

* Why are there no fat people in downtown Toronto? There's a Tim Horton's doughnut shop on every other corner and a hot-dog cart on those corners that don't have doughnuts. Yet you almost never see an overweight person. What gives? And how can we import it?

Thankfully, none of them seems to be on the diet that Matthew McConaughey went on for his role as a 1980s AIDS patient in "Dallas Buyers Club." The "Magic Mike" actor went from 185 pounds to 137 for his role and looks ghoulishly scary.

* For those of you familiar with the quick movie reviews of Scott "Movie" Mantz in a large number of Philadelphia taxicabs, expect more good reviews in the future. We overheard Mantz saying how he'd seen a lot of movies he'd liked in Toronto.

* As someone who drives each year to the festival, Tattle would just like to say that the Pennsylvania Turnpike Northeast Extension may as well put in traffic lights.

It is impossible to drive for five minutes on that road without running into orange construction signs, orange cones, no shoulder, changed traffic patterns, rough pavement or a lane closing. That's why everyone is either driving 20 mph or 80. Shouldn't there be a toll discount when so much of the road is unusable?

* The "Gravity" news conference got off to a rousing start when the moderator introduced star Sandra Bullock as one of Hollywood's "gustiest" actresses, and there were numerous humorous bits having nothing to do with director Alfonso Cuaron's terrific space movie.

Cuaron said he met Bullock for the first time at her home in San Antonio. She said, no, it was Austin (which is where Bullock lives).

Cuaron: "There are no direct flights to Austin."

Bullock: "There are many."

Cuaron: "Not from London."

Bullock: " That's a fact."

Later, Cuaron complimented the actress (co-star George Clooney was a no-show), saying: "The discipline of Sandra is scary. Maybe that's the German side."

Bullock laughed and replied, "It's certainly not the Birmingham, Ala., side."
