Elin Nordegren Speaks Out For The First Time About Tiger, Saying She "Never Suspected" and is "Stronger Than Ever" 2010-08-25 07:18:31

Elin Nordegren Speaks Out For the First Time About Tiger, Saying She "Never Suspected" and Is "Stronger Than Ever"

Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren's divorce was finalized this week, just as her first ever interview since the scandal was ready to hit the newsstands. Elin spoke at length to People in what she says could be her only sit-down talk to discuss the end of her marriage. She apparently approached the magazine about doing the cover story and the author went on The Today Show this morning to share about the experience and Elin's amazingly strong attitude in the wake of her heartbreak. Elin seems resolved, committed to her family, and has "watched not one minute of golf" this year. Here's a few quotes from the issue, which is out this week:

On the whole experience: "I have been through the stages of disbelief and shock, to anger and ultimately grief over the loss of the family I so badly wanted for my children . . . I also feel stronger than I ever have. I have confidence in my beliefs, my decisions and myself."

On knowing what Tiger was doing: "I'm so embarrassed that I never suspected — not a one. For the past 3 1/2 years, when all this was going on, I was home a lot more with pregnancies, then the children and my school."

On the future: "My immediate plan is for the kids and me to continue to adjust to our new situation. I am going to keep taking classes [toward a degree in psychology], but my main focus is to try to give myself time to heal."

On forgiving Tiger: "Forgiveness takes time. It is the last step of the grieving process."

i think it's great she's moving on and being classy. but i don't feel too sad for her anymore. she's getting MILLIONS and she's still young and pretty. also, i think she shouldn't ever have granted an interview. she should have avoided speaking all together...

She is such a strong and admirable woman. She's thinking of her children first and looking forward to the future. She is the kind of woman that fellow women should admire, not the Lohans or other fame-finders. Way to go, Elin!

I like Elin, she doesn't seem to be one of those women who thrive on pity and grudges. She never even mentions or bad-mouths Tiger or any of his mistresses, real class. Plus I love the message she sends to cheating man everywhere: cheating can cause your face to be broken in, your teeth knocked out, your career and reputation may be ruined and you could stand to lose a small fortune. Here's to strong and classy women!
