Scandal Style: Two alleged mistresses sport similar 'Tiger's eye' sparkle
Style-wise, there hasn't been much to to see with the whole Tiger Woods affair, but after catching two of the golfer's alleged paramours sharing their sordid details on TV on Friday, I noticed something interesting.
Jaime Jungers, who took to "Today" early in the morning to tell her story, and Jaimee Grubbs who sat down with "Extra," which aired that same evening, seem to share more than a similar first name. They both sported a tiny glint of facial embellishment high on the cheekbone, Jungers' visible just below the corner of her left eye, and Grubbs' just below her right eye.
It's hard to tell from the videos and photos if it's a facial piercing or (more likely) a body jewel of some sort stuck on the surface of the skin.
And I haven't heard any explanation about it, either. Is it some symbolic solidarity sparkle? A secret message to a special someone? Or simply an increasingly fashionable flourish among the "other women" demographic, which hadn't become apparent until there were nearly a dozen claiming that status in one fell swoop? (And, in an unrelated question, how many more will it take until they get standing for a class-action lawsuit?)
If anyone has any answers, clue me in. And if I see one more of the women claiming a romantic link to Woods take to the tube sporting a sparkle on the orbital bone, I'm declaring the "eye of the Tiger" the tawdry trend of the year.
