Tiger and Elin Hang On; The Return of Jersey Shore?

• Elin Nordegren and Tiger Woods may remain married, after all. Tiger supposedly wants to keep the relationship together because he "wants to go back to being a golf star with major endorsements," and is hoping to convince people he's "a good family man." (Good luck with that.) As for Nordegren, she'd like to make the marriage work for the sake of their two kids and is willing to stick with Woods "even if she and Tiger live together as friends instead of lovers." This all sounds incredibly promising, doesn't it? [People, NYDN]
• Exciting news, Jersey Shore fans: MTV and the cast of the hit show are said to be close to ironing out their differences over pay, and the fist-pumping and fake tanning may return to the air as soon as this summer. [Variety]
• In other Shore news, someone is shopping around naked photos of Jenni "J-Woww" Farley despite the fact that there's very little of her body that we haven't already seen. And Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi thinks of herself as "too classy" to be seen in the vicinity of Jerry Springer. [Radar, P6]
• What's going on with Brad and Angelina? According to one report, the couple did meet meet with a lawyer last week, but it was to do a little estate planning and "protect their children and property in case there's a rift in the future," not because they're actually planning to divorce. Then again a source tells E! that Brad Pitt hasn't been showering much recently and smells "like a wandering homeless person," which probably doesn't bode well. [NYDN, People, E!]

• In related news, Angie and her brother James posted several home movies on YouTube this week as part of a tribute to their late mother. [NYP]
• Kiefer Sutherland got taken for nearly $900,000 in an elaborate investment scam in which a guy told Kiefer he needed a big 'ole chunk of money to go to Mexico to buy cattle and then planned to sell them for a profit in the United States. You guessed it: The scam artist took the money and ran, and the location/status of the aforementioned cows is still unclear. [TMZ, NYP]
• Andrew Young, the former John Edwards aide who has a book coming out next week, has lots of tawdry stories to tell about his former boss. Among other things, he says Edwards filmed a sex tape with Rielle Hunter, the woman he was having an affair with (and with whom he later had a baby). Young also says Edwards promised Hunter he'd marry her and asked him to try and convince Hunter to have an abortion when he learned she was pregnant, an idea Hunter didn't much appreciate since she believed the "child was the reincarnated spirit of a Buddhist monk who would rescue the world." [NYDN]
• John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston landed their Boeing 707 in Haiti yesterday to unload six tons of food as well as a bunch of ministers and doctors affiliated with the Church of Scientology. So a few lucky Haitians should be getting a meal and an e-meter reading today, which is nice to hear. [NYP]
• Don't think Jessica Simpson isn't doing her part to help Haiti, too. She is. Simpson has teamed with a Nashville charity to donate 50,000 pairs of shoes to victims of the earthquake. [Us]
• As for Heidi Montag, she isn't doing anything for the people of Haiti. But she is planning to get her mom something special for Mother's Day! What is it? If you guessed a touch-up session with her plastic surgeon, well, you clearly understand how Montag's mind operates. [Us]
• Reality stars haven't been faring too well at Sundance this year. Stephanie Pratt got shut down at one club and was told she couldn't bring her entire entourage inside. And Jon Gosselin—accessorized by his latest girlfriend—had to wait in line for a whole 20 minutes before a kindly doorperson let him inside. Gosselin was also seen engaging in some "inappropriate" touchy-feely PDA with his girlfriend in an effort to attract paparazzi attention, and has been busy "taking meetings about walk-on movie roles," in case you were wondering what he's doing at Sundance in the first place. [P6, NYDN]
• Is there a third Sex and the City movie already in the works? According to one British tabloid (read: take it with a grain of salt), the four leading ladies will be filming the second and third movies back-to-back because they'll look way too old and haggard in a couple of years to film the third installment at that point. [The Sun]

• Why did Kevin Federline balloon up after his 2006 divorce from Britney Spears? He was depressed, he says, which led him to overeat, but that's all in the past now since K-Fed is "really happy" these days. Expect to see him flaunting his bod in a tight wife beater again very soon. [People, Sun]
