No big surprise – Tiger didn’t show.
Some of the biggest names in video games and Hollywood’s most avid gamers showed up at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles Saturday night for Spike TV’s 2009 Video Games Awards — but one VGA nominee was noticeably not there: scandal-plagued golfer Tiger Woods.
RadarOnline.com reporter Mayleen Ramey was on the red carpet and exclusively talked to several celebs about the growing Tiger sex scandal.
Pauly Devecchio of MTV’s Jersey Shore told us: “I think it’s definitely drama. It’s definitely a situation.”
Devecchio’s Jersey Shore cast mate Mike Sorrentino echoed Pauly’s comment saying : “It’s definitely a situation. I wish him the best. You know what everyone likes to point the finger and everyone has their own life, so I’m sure you know he’ll take care of it.”

Famed skateboarder Tony Hawk expressed sympathy for Woods and his wife Elin, saying: “I feel bad for their family you know, I think it’s sad they have to live under that public eye and that public scrutiny, and he should take a break and work on it like he said he’s going to do, and you know, what does he have to prove in golf right now anyway?”
Former model turned TV personality Courtney Hansen told us she thought it was a smart move for Tiger to take a break from golf, saying: “Absolutely. If there’s any chance, in my opinion, of redeeming his marriage and his reputation, he’s got to reflect on what’s gone on.”
