Talk back L.A.

Everyone seems to be talking about Tiger Woods' emotional apology he issued in a television address this morning.

But in Los Angeles, local TV stations followed Woods' statement with a news conference here in L.A. involving attorney Gloria Allred and one of the golfer's alleged mistresses. It was a TV event in itself -- but perhaps not in the way Allred had hoped.

Veronica Siwik-Daniels, also known as porn actress Joslyn James, talked about 1,000 text message the golfer allegedly sent and said she'd be open to a "telephone apology" from Woods.

Allred called Woods' address "a staged public relations stunt" and "a disgrace."

"I just watched Tiger Woods' apology on television, and he said that many people believed in him. He also said he wanted to make amends. He did not apologize by name to my client, Veronica, and I ask, why no apology?"

What do you think? Was Allred's news conference a "disgrace" or good television? What does Woods owe Siwik-Daniels? Share your views below.
