Since his infamous holiday accident, Tiger Woods has been trying to lay low and do damage control by issuing vague confessions and pleas for privacy. On Wednesday, he asked the media to have respect for his family and accept his mea culpa for "transgressions" and "personal sins" - celebrity code for adultery. The statement Woods issued is chock-full of the stock celebrity phrases of imperfection, desire for privacy and defense of family prevalent in all press releases issued when someone gets busted publicly. Rachel Uchitel, the first "lady" implicated in playing with his 9-iron, has categorically denied any relationship with the golfer. However, Jamiee Grubbs, a cocktail waitress and sometimes-reality show wannabe -- she was on Tool Academy -- is more forthcoming with her allegations that she and Tiger had been involved. In fact, she alleges that Tiger warned her that wifey was onto them. On the day of the accident, she shared a voice mail she received from Elin Woods, saying she knew about the whole thing. Grubbs' Tool Academy costars even discussed the matter on-camera but it was edited out, so footage may still exist on the cutting-room floor. A Vegas nightclub manager, Kalika Moquin, seems to have hooked up with Tiger, too. Insiders tell Life & Style that the two "hooked up a bunch of times. Tiger told Kalika that married life isn't all it's built up to be. He said he wasn't happy in his marriage or his home life and that there was just so much pressure on him." Poor guy - let's hope he doesn't make the hole he's dug himself a par four.
