Elin Nordegren Doesn’t Need Your Tiger Woods

In her first — and confirmed last — interview, Elin Nordegren speaks out to People magazine about the aftermath of the Tiger Woods scandal and how she’s coping. Elin states that she’s feeling better than ever, won’t let this get her down, and has plans for her future — all of which include her children:

“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. [But] I also feel stronger than I ever have. I have confidence in my beliefs, my decisions and myself.”

And though she’s keeping busy by working toward a college degree, Elin states that family is still her number one priority, even if the father of her children is a douchebag and isn’t a part of the family unit any longer:

“My immediate plan is for the kids and me to continue to adjust to our new situation. I am going to keep taking classes, but my main focus is to try to give myself time to heal.”

You know what? I got all sorts of good vibes from this interview. I commend her on holding her silence for this long (because really, there’d be very few women — or men, really — who could keep their trap snapped over heinous allegations that were brought forth against their spouses like the ones brought against Woods) and I really believe her when she says that this interview, while her first, will also be her last. I believe her, and I don’t see any tell-all Tiger Woods: Behind the Scenes books in development. At least by Elin, anyway. Rachel Uchitel? Yeah. Probably.

  • I am so glad that Elin Nordegren is finally free from Tiger Woods who seems to be a very troubled man with serious issues. I commend Elin for her wise decision, for being a caring and loving mother and for her great courage, dignity and class during this horrid period in her life. I applaud that Elin is moving on with her life taking care of herself and her children and looking forward to be happy and enjoy life again!!! I wish them the very best!!!

    • I agree..she could so much better. I mean really Tiger cheat on a swimsuit Issue Model babe with an ugly chick…i mean seriously how low can u go?
      The fact is Tiger is a terrible husband and a terrible father and a terrible lover…this boy has no skills in bed…or with the ladys..or even himself. Tiger is an idiot for Cheating on this woman.
      El – Lets be and Tiger had no idea what you either of you were headed for – when you both got married. And lets be honest El-he doesn’t need a supermodel…if he choses to date uglier ones then you maybe he should be married to one of those uglier ones. Tiger has no class…he is no damn gentleman…and yes he could be the best golfer in the world..however he is a displicable human being. After all – a golf club can’t love back! Remember that on your lonely nights Tiger Woods! I am ashamed of You dude. You had it all-and you blew it. The words Dum Arse comes to mind.

  • It damn good that she’s taking Tiger Woods the ass all of his MOney!! When some black men get rich , they feel the first thing they have to get is a white woman so it damn good for him!!! Take all his damn money!!!!

  • She was paid an obscene amount of money to keep her trap shut and this was the one interview she was allowed give and basically she was told what she could say in it. It’s not really commendable- she deserved half his money and she had the right to drag his name through the mud- but we don’t know was it because she’s a classy lady or she just likes money that kept her from doing so.

  • She has confidence in her decisions? Why? She didn’t do so well in the marriage decision.

    I wonder if she or Tiger asked her parents if they approved the marriage.

    Oh gee. I’m just so old fashioned. One would think with a 50% divorce rate, someone might begin asking the question, “What are we doing wrong?”

  • Cruzito, what an idiotic response. She married a man who was introduced to her by her friend/employer, he charmed her and then they married. Why is she a gold digger for having her marriage across every crappy newspaper in the world, being embarrassed across te world, losing any repect for her husband, wonder if she has VD from his liaisons, and losing a princoiples faher to her children because of his actions. Grow up

  • Elin is a classy lady & deserves every penny she got from the divorce settlement. The public needs to butt out & leave her alone to lick her wounds. Tiker threw away his wife & children for steamy sex. What a jerk!!!!
