Tiger Wood's shamed wife Elin Nordegren sat down with People magazine for her one and only interview, according to her words. She says this will be her first and last public comment on her divorce and that she intends to lead a private life.
Perhaps most shocking to the public is that after so many women came forward claiming to have slept with Woods, Nordegren says she never had any idea her husband was being unfaithful: "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."
Elin tells the mag, of the process of dealing with her pro golfer husband's cheating: "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."
About reports she attacked Tiger with a golf club the night of his car accident in November 2009, she tells People: "There was never any violence inside or outside our home. The speculation that I would have used a golf club to hit him is just truly ridiculous."
She says the pair attempted to rebuild their relationship but "without trust and love," there was nothing left to work with.
The 30-year-old mother of two is working on a psychology degree and says of her plans for 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, but my main focus is to try to give myself time to heal."
The couple's children, Sam, 3, and Charlie, 19 months, are her priority and are the rocks that are keeping Elin's outlook bright: "I also feel stronger than I ever have. I have confidence in my beliefs, my decisions and myself."
Poor Elin but even more so, poor kids!
