One day after Tiger Woods' public apology for cheating on wife Elin, he made good on his claim of returning for more treatment and therapy almost immediately.

Tiger and Elin Woods spent time together Friday after his apology speech and Saturday afternoon before he flew out of the Orlando area late Saturday evening.

It is believed Elin accompanied him on his flight aboard one of the golf legend's private jets, which took off around 7 p.m., bound for a rehab center in Arizona.

Previously, Tiger had been receiving in-patient care at Gentle Path in Hattiesburg, Miss. This time, Scottsdale, Ariz., is the destination, although only for a week.

Elin Woods and their kids are with him, at least for now.

“Elin may not stay the entire week with him,” a source said, noting that while relations have thawed somewhat. “She taking the marriage one day at a time.”

Woods' wife was not by his side at the big press conference Friday, but there has been progress made in their marriage, with more time spent as a family.

“Tiger wants time with his family and he wants Elin to be part of his recovery,” the source said “He knows it’s a long road but he’s taking it one step at a time.”

Tiger and Elin had dinner two nights in a row before Tiger’s televised speech, in which he went out of his way to praise Elin and tell America to leave her alone.

Elin called off her divorce lawyer a while ago, but only on a temporary basis. She has told Tiger that doesn’t mean that she’s staying with him, reports suggest.

She's still not wearing her wedding ring, either. Will the golf star's apology be enough? Will he, as he says, prove how sorry he is by his actions over time?

Tiger Woods' apology speech was ...

Ali Fedotowsky was Jake Pavelka's leading candidate on The Bachelor before she voluntarily left to pursue a starring role on ABC's The Bachelorette this summer.

Oops, we mean to pursue her career back in "the real world."

In a new interview, Jake repeats his claim that the departed Ali was his "frontrunner" on the program before she was forced to choose between him and her job.

Speaking to ET Online ahead of tonight's Women Tell All special, Jake said of Ali Fedotowsky: "That night, when she left, she was ahead of all the other women."

"I can't tell you if she was going to be The One, but, that night, if somebody had said, 'Gun's to your head. Pick a girl,' it would have been her," the pilot added.

Ready For Takeoff

But, despite her not-at-all staged plea to return to the show approximately 12 minutes later, "we had a long way to go and I forced myself to close that book."

He says he did not invite Ali back when she requested to because he had already moved forward with the three remaining women. Not even a full episode later.

"The transitions from hometowns to exotics, that's where you really start to get intimate with them, and I'd already done that with all three of the women," he said.

Translation: He was getting so much tail in the fantasy suite on last week's episode that it wasn't fair to the other girls he was naked with at the time she called.

It is truly astonishing just how much natural drama and spontaneous plot twists occur absolutely unscripted on The Bachelor. What are the chances of all this?

Career girl Ali has to leave the show for her job ... even though she presumably took time off to go on the show in the first place. All of a sudden it's an issue?

Ali and Ellen

Then - what are the odds - when she returns to her hectic life at home, there's a camera crew there to catch it all and she immediately regrets her decision.

Ali can't even bear to go on ... you can always get a great job, but you can't always find love on a reality TV show with a complete stiff like Jake Pavelka!

She's filled with "anxiety" and "can't focus on work." It's tough, finding the work-life balance. As is scheduling time for all the talk show interviews she's done.

Anyway. Should Ali be the new star of The Bachelorette?

This isn't breaking or significant news, but if you enjoy a good, old-fashioned celebrity feud-turned-melee caught on tape, you might enjoy the video below!

Travis Barker and his friends were threatening paparazzi outside a Calabasas, Calif., restaurant recently, although the reason the incident started is unclear.

The drummer and his posse were allegedly spitting at celebrity gossip cameramen, hitting the camera and, according to one man, slashing a photog's tires.

It is believed that Travis Barker first got into it with a photographer on his way into the restaurant, but neither photographer in the video is that individual.

In the video, Travis starts out screaming, "Where's your homeboy?"

The photographers claimed that one of their phones was stolen by Barker's crew. When one confronted Travis' friends about it, a guy can be heard saying:

"F**king fa**ot motherf**ker, no one has your gay ass phone."

Classy gay slurs. Didn't John Mayer teach these guys anything?

After a few more minutes of arguing, and the arrival of cops, no arrests were made, but a vandalism report was taken and people were really, really pissed!

Watch the action for yourself after the jump, but beware, much of the language you will hear is profane, and the camera shakes a lot. You may get dizzy:

Not only is this piece of Angelina Jolie gossip actually true, it involves her and gentleman she's not normally linked to by celebrity gossip news publications:

Jon Voight.

That would be her estranged actor dad (her real name is Angelina Jolie Voight). The whole Jolie-Pitt clan was seen stepping out with her dad Sunday in Italy!

The fact that Jon Voight joined Angelina Jolie, her partner Brad Pitt and their children for a trip down Venice's Grand Canal was significant for the family:

No one mentioned Jennifer Aniston even once!

  • Angie Jolie Pic
  • Jon Voight Photo

Reports say the Voights are patching things up!

Although the father-daughter pair have had an uneasy relationship and have spent much of the last decade estranged, they reportedly reconciled lately.

Sunday marks the first time Jolie and Voight have been photographed together in several years. Hopefully it's indicative of a new era of good relations.

Nice to see Jon took the time out from calling Barack Obama a socialist dictator to spend time with his daughter. Life is too short to stay mad, right?

Of course, this being Angelina Jolie, she's never too far from tabloid speculation. The reason she's in Venice is to shoot The Tourist with Johnny Depp.

There are supposedly romantic sparks flying there. So it goes ...

Actor Andrew Koenig, who starred on Growing Pains back in the day, has been reported missing, the Vancouver Police say. He has not been seen in a week.

Koenig, who played Mike Seaver's (Kirk Cameron) pal Boner, was supposed to be on a flight back to the United States on February 16, but did not check in.

He was reportedly last seen a week ago. His parents have described their son as "suffering from depression" and "not doing good" in the last few weeks.

Judy and Walter Koenig (who played Pavel Chekov in the Star Trek series) say they last heard from Andrew February 9. They also say his cell phone is off.

We're hoping for the safe return of Andrew Koenig.

The last time his phone received a text was February 16 in Vancouver, British Columbia. He was last seen at a bakery in the Stanley Park area of Vancouver.

Lance Miccio, who worked with him on several projects, reached out to him earlier this month. Koening passed, saying he was "not going to work anymore."

Right around that time, Miccio says Andrew Koenig (who he also said was depressed) dropped off a bag of Miccio's stuff. Miccio hasn't spoken to him since.

The family is asking that anyone with information immediately contact Detective Raymond Payette of the Vancouver Police Department at 604-717-2534.

Snowboarder Scotty Lago bolted the Winter Olympics after a racy photo surfaced of him inviting girls to kiss his bronze medal. While it hung around his waist.

The third-place finisher in the men's halfpipe snowboarding event voluntarily left after the risque photos of a woman kissing and biting his ... medal surfaced.

The 22-year-old free spirit was snapped with his bronze medal around his waist and the hardware hung over his groin area on a public street late Thursday.

Pretty rad display all around. A second shot showed a woman biting the medal, but this time Scotty Lago held it up by the logo on his Team USA T-shirt.

Hey, a dude's gotta celebrate.

KISS OFF: Snowboarder Scotty Lago is in hot water with the U.S. Olympic Committee and Snowboard Association after inviting the ladies to kiss deez bronze medalz.

In response to the controversy, Lago apologized to the U.S. Olympic Committee and the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association, which required its athletes to attend a special program prior to the games to avoid potential PR nightmares.

That was time well spent! Association President and CEO Bill Marolt said:

"Scotty Lago is a great athlete, but with that talent comes a responsibility of proper conduct, and his involvement in this situation is not acceptable."

"With that said, Scotty realizes that his conduct was inappropriate. He has formally apologized and also made a decision to leave Vancouver today."

Reports say his "voluntary" departure was prompted by an ultimatum from the U.S. Olympic Committee: say you're sorry and go or we kick you out.

No further action against the Seabrook, N.H. native appears likely. In other Olympics news, how about those Lindsey Vonn photos?! Hot damn!

Billy Corgan has commented on his relationship with Jessica Simpson for the first time ... and it appears as if that relationship is mostly, if not entirely musical.

"She asked me to help her out on the theme song for her new show [VH1's The Price of Beauty],” the Smashing Pumpkins frontman told the Chicago Tribune.

"She goes around the world to show how different people perceive beauty. In some cultures, bigger is better. In some, smaller is better. It's very interesting."

Corgan says that he ended up writing part of the theme song, which he describes as having "a little bit of an alternative rock edge, but it’s still very pop-y."

The odd couple had fans scratching their heads last December after they were first spotted together in New York City. Rumors of a romance soon heated up.

From what we've read and heard, there were feelings from both sides, although the extent to which Billy Corgan and Jessica Simpson were romantic is unclear.

And as far as celebrity gossip reports are concerned, he could not care less. "The stuff I’ve seen doesn’t have any bearing to the reality that I'm in," he says.

"It's like living a cartoon. It has nothing to do with what’s really going on."

A bit coy, but definitely honest. Which is about what you would expect.

Jessica Simpson aside, what's left for a '90s rock god to do in his career?

“I just signed a deal to write my memoir,” he said. “Next year. It’s a memoir about life from a spiritual perspective – not from a media or celeb perspective.”

Reaction to Tiger Woods' apology speech Friday has so far been mixed. Many fans, sponsors and sports broadcasters have praised the golfer; Many have not.

Joslyn James and Jamie Jungers have more things in common than alliterative names: Both 1. have been railed by Woods; 2. say his mea culpa was bogus.

As far as James is concerned, the porn star who alleges a three-year extramarital affair with Tiger said that his press conference was far from convincing.

Moreover, she feels she has been slandered. Really.

"I would be open to a telephone apology from Tiger," the star of Top Heavy 4 said, accompanied of course by lawyer Gloria Allred. "I did not deserve this."

"An apology should be meaningful, and I didn't hear none of that," she said. "He's so selfish; it's not about anybody but him. It didn't feel like it was real."

Joslyn James wants Tiger to learn his (dirty!) lesson!

While Allred repeatedly mentioned how much emotional distress Tiger caused Joslyn James, she said she was not planning to file suit against him. Phew!

Meanwhile, another notch on Tiger Woods' list of mistresses was holding a viewing party with reporters: Las Vegas blackjack dealer/model Jamie Jungers.

Let's just say she wasn't moved by the script either.

"That apology is crap," Jungers said. "He's making a sob story to make people sorry for him. I don't feel sorry for him. I’ve seen his emotions when his father died and this was different. I'm not going to call him a liar but... he's playing that card."

The Trashy Lingerie model wasn't done there.

"He's apologizing to these young kids... everybody but the women that were involved in the relationships," says Jungers. "It's hurtful. It's rude. He should have apologized to the mistresses, because we’re dealing with a lot of stuff too."

A poor Tiger mistress just can't get a break, it's true.

Jungers says her relationship with Woods was more than sexual, and she was hoping for Tiger to acknowledge that, although she is not surprised he didn't.

Poor home-wrecker Jamie Jungers wants an apology too!

"It's not one-night stands, it's relationships. When it's a relationship, you're intimate and you share feelings. He could have at least mentioned the women."

"I know he's trying to win his wife back," Jamie Jungers adds. "Of course he's not going to apologize to the women he slept with. It's what I expected."

As for whether Elin Woods should stick with Tiger?

"Once a cheater always a cheater," says Jungers. "Is Elin going to stay with him? I would say no, but I don't have kids with him. He has a lot to prove."

Lastly, regarding her haters, Jamie says, "I'm not a home-wrecking whore. If it was up to me I would have never done it in the first place, but I stupid."

"Of course  feel guilty. I have a heart. But it was years ago. I shouldn't be the one to be blamed for it. He had lied to me about so many things."

Tiger Woods' public apology was ...

The season finale of The Bachelor is not until March 1. On that night, Jake Pavelka will choose, most likely foolishly, between Vienna Girardi and Tenley Molzahn.

This coming Monday is the pre-finale "Women Tell All" special. Which is a misnomer, as they actually tell very little, and ABC only airs what fits its narratives.

But anyway.

This filler is perhaps most notable for the return of exiled hopeful Rozlyn Papa, who was infamously banished for "inappropriate" relations with a staff member.

As you can see in this sneak peek, one of the other girls attempts to call her out ... for not being in her room at 4 a.m.! OMG! She totally boned the producer!

Watch the one-sided nonsense below ...

Despite what the previews might imply, don't expect Rozlyn Papa and Jake Pavelka to interact, or for her sparring with Chris Harrison to be aired (at least in its entirety).

That would be way too fair and actually interesting.

As for the remaining two girls, early favorite Rozlyn indicated a preference for Team Tenley Molzahn after being ousted. Many fans surely agree with her take.

Who do you think should win?
