New details are coming out about a long history of troubles between the parents of Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan and her brother Mark. In March of 2008, the Kerrigans sued their son for $105,000 they lost paying for everything from his mortgage to food for his pets, according to The Daily Beast. The 45-year-old pleaded not guilty yesterday to assault charges related to Sunday's death of his father. The 70-year-old collapsed during an argument with his son. The family is asking for privacy as they mourn their loss and handle the situation, according to The Washington Post.
The dirty details are out! In an exclusive interview with The Daily Beast, two anonymous sources, close to Tiger Wood's wife, Elin Nordegren, lay out the time line of events that led to the golf pros plummet. My highlight from the whole thing, the fact that Tiger actually encouraged his wife to call mistress, Rachel Uchitel, the day before he knew the National Enquirer was coming out with their affair. Uchitel talked to Elin for a half-hour, convincing her their relationship was strictly platonic. That, of course, all changed the next day. Elin somehow confirmed the affair, and the rest is history.

What would the Jersey Shore be like without Snooki, The Situation, and Pauly D? Lets just say, I wouldn't watch it. But MTV says it could happen.

"Finding obnoxious, pushy, trash-talking idiots who want to be on TV is as easy as falling off a log," the source says.
