Tiger Woods Hires Ari Fleisher For Comeback

Tiger Woods has reportedly hired former Bush administration press secretary Ari Fleisher to handle his comeback image. INSIDE EDITION has the latest.

Tiger Woods has hired a big gun for his comeback. White House presser Ari Fleischer. Tiger is paying former Bush White House press secretary Ari Fleischer to help repair his image.

Fleischer now runs his own PR agency and has experience working with scandal-scarred sports figures. He once advised baseball slugger Mark McGwire, who was caught up in that steroid scandal.

Fleischer now faces the monumental task of repairing an even bigger nightmare. The New York Post says Tiger and Fleischer have already sat down in Tiger's living room to "go over strategy."

Fliescher has his work cut out for him. Tiger's mistresses just won't stop talking. Loredana, who just competed in shock jock Howard Stern's Tiger Woods' Mistress Pageant, claims that Tiger's attorneys offered her money to keep her from writing a "tell all" book.

"A few days ago they tried to offer me money not to write the book," said Loredana. She says she turned down the offer. The former escort says Tiger paid for services rendered.

INSIDE EDITION's Megan Alexander asked, "Were you a paid escort?"

"No, it wasn't like that. He paid the agency, and then I worked for the agency."


"How much were you paid?" asked Alexander.

"$15,000," said Loredana.

And speculation's growing that Tiger may soon be back on the tour. There are two Florida-based tournaments coming up in the next couple of weeks. Both could be warm ups for the Masters.
