Tiger and Elin face a different kind of marriage

After last week’s family reunion, Tiger Woods and wife Elin Nordegren are said to be back to living separate lives. That may not sound like a good sign for the struggling couple, but one insider insists the relationship isn’t nearing its end. In fact, the source believes the couple’s marriage, in some form or another, is sure to survive.

“(Elin) put the divorce on hold, but she’s not caving in and doing everything (Tiger) wants,” the source told Radar Online. “It looks like they will stay married — but I don’t know what kind of marriage it’s going to be.”

It’s likely to be the kind of marriage the golf great must work very hard to maintain — if he wants it at all.

“Tiger is trying to win her back,” the source said. “He’s being as patient as he can because he knows he caused all this. But he’s not a patient guy by nature.”

Last season’s pro ‘Dancing’ champ won’t return Earning the coveted mirror ball trophy on “Dancing With the Stars” doesn’t necessarily earn a pro more ballroom bucks — or even the guarantee of a job. That’s the lesson last season’s “Dancing” champ, Kym Johnson, recently learned when she tried to parlay her winning ways into a bigger payday.

According to E! News, the “Dancing” vet had hoped waltzing Donny Osmond to victory was enough to prove her worth, but the powers-that-be behind the competition just didn’t agree.

“(Johnson) and her agent went after more money in her contract,” an insider revealed. But producers were “not happy they played the money game, so they left her off and didn't renew her contract.”

Johnson now joins ballroom regulars Jonathan Roberts, Karina Smirnoff, Dmitry Chaplin and Lacey Schwimmer in this season’s no-“Dancing” zone.

Not everyone’s ready for their close-up, but Sharon Osbourne fears children today are growing up to expect it. In a column for the Daily Mail, Osbourne explained her take on the fame-entitled generation.

“There is an epidemic of fame-obsessed youngsters — aged between 10 and 25 — who wrongly believe celebrity is a shortcut to wealth and happiness, and who are convinced it will bring them everything they want,” Osbourne insisted. “An entire generation that doesn't understand that nothing worth having comes easily.”

Reality TV shows seem to fuel these celebrity fiends with easy-come ideas about fame and fortune. But Osbourne is reluctant to take any blame for her own role in the fame game. What about “The Osbournes,” where her children found notoriety, or her panel participation on televised talent contests?

“Some might argue that I have contributed to the fame epidemic myself, with ‘The Osbournes’ show, and by appearing on ‘X Factor’ and ‘America's Got Talent,’ ” Osbourne said. “ ‘The Osbournes’ opened so many doors for us, and both Jack and Kelly loved doing it. But although we pioneered the reality show, I didn't expect the wave of copycat programs that followed.”

So it seems, at least according to Osbourne, early adopters of the medium don’t count toward the problem. And as for those pesky talent shows? Well, Osbourne practically shifts her entire stance after mentioning her own participation and all but encourages fame seekers to sign up.

“If you are prepared for it, and it makes you happy, do it,” the music manager-turned-talent-judge advised. “It's a great opportunity for a very rich life experience, a chance to meet interesting people and travel. Why not take a roll of the dice? If you win, fantastic. You'll have one hit record — maybe more if you're very lucky. But don't expect a career with the longevity of, say, Ozzy’s. He has had 40 years in the business and it’s still a struggle. (Of course, it helps if you marry your manager.)”

Dish on the fly Two photographers who planned to sneak a few shots of Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney’s nuptials last Saturday found themselves pinned down to the ground under a pack of security guards instead. One paparazzo, who was later arrested for obstructing a path during the incident, claimed his fight with “The Bachelor’s” brutes isn’t over. “I'm pissed,” the unnamed lensman told X17 Online. “Those guys were way out of line. We were not posing a threat to anyone and ABC staged a wedding area that was in clear view from the public property just next to it. If they wanted protection from the media, they should have had the ceremony indoors. I'm not going to let those guys get away with what they did — the way they treated us was inhumane.” Oh, won’t someone think of the paparazzi?
