BREAKING NEWS: Elin Nordegren Finally Speaks: 'I've Been Through Hell!'

Posted Wed, August 25, 2010 8:16am EDT

Tiger Woods’ now ex-wife Elin has given her first interview in the nine months since news of Tiger’s cheating broke. “I have been through the stages of disbelief and shock,” she tells PEOPLE magazine.

Elin Nordegren has finally described the horror and hurt she suffered when her now ex-husband Tiger Woods‘ rampant infidelity was revealed to the world last November.

In an interview with PEOPLE, Elin says, “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’ve been through hell. It’s hard to think you have this life, and then all of a sudden — was it a lie?”

On a more hopeful note, the 30-year-old mother of two, who is studying towards a college degree in psychology, “I also feel stronger than I ever have. I have confidence in my beliefs, my decisions and myself.”

“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,” she says.

According to Elin, this interview was the only interview she’ll give. Among the other heartbreaking, startling, provocative — and inspiring — things she told PEOPLE:

  • NO TIGER ON THE TV: Elin says, “I’ve not watched one minute of golf.” Instead she has “dance parties to the Pippi Longstocking soundtrack” with the kids, reads picture books to her children, and, “whenever she could, she’d take off for a run or a bike ride.”

The biggest thing to do is to stay strong. As far as the kids go…that is rough. There is little you can do. I hope it all works out.

Elin has composure and class, two things Tiger can never buy. She is beautiful, has two darling children, and a soon-to-be degree to boot. There’s a sea of men out there who would love a woman like her! What these men (like Poster) don’t realize is that in the end, they’re doing her a favor.

I can’t decide if Poster’s comment is the definition of “heartless,” “brainless,” or “clueless.” Maybe it’s all three.

Well…HELLO!! I’ve never seen the nudie shots before.
Kinda puts a whole new spin on things.

Exactly what was she sellin’ when these were taken?
Seems Tiger bought what was being advertised…and them some.
Sorta can’t blame him now.

Looks like Elin was selling the same thing the rest of the girls were….sex…(and if not…then why take the shots for public consumption…why not make them private like most of the rest of us do?? I certainly don’t go around posing for nudie shots for just any ol’ photog for everyone to see!!)
….it’s just that Tiger had to pay her a lil’ more.

Hmmm now!

Oh and…i’m NOT a prude.
However….who are these photos for?
One presumes she knew MARRIED men would be looking at them, too….so what’s a guy to do?

If women would STOP selling SEX in public…then men wouldn’t be out doggin’ around! Geez!

what a tragedy! she spread her legs and became a multimillionaire; if she was any good at what she was being paid for, little tiger wouldn’t have strayed

good luck to her. people belittle her composure and say it was just for the money, but, she still deserves praise for the way she has and continues to carry herself. i wish her and the kids the best.

Is it me or what?

She just got $100,000,000 and she’s taking classes to be a psychologist? She might need a psychiatrist!

Won’t she need at least a Master’s Degree in Psychology?

No matter HOW much she got it was n’t enough for the humiliation, betrayal and dis-respect he showed her!
A Masters is probably needed and now she can afford to get what ever she needs to accomplish that!
