Elin Nordegren gives first interview, but stays tight-lipped about Tiger

Tiger Woods has barely spoken to the press since his marriage started to unravel, mostly to say that he's sorry. His ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, hasn't said a word -- until now.

With her divorce final, the former model sat down with People magazine for a careful interview: She's feeling strong, spending time with the kids, getting a bachelor's degree in psychology. A few revealing tidbits:

  • On her husband's infidelity: "I'm so embarrassed that I never suspected -- not a one."
  • On the infamous Thanksgiving night car crash: "The speculation that I would have used a golf club to hit him is just truly ridiculous. Tiger left the house that night, and after a while when he didn't return, I got worried and decided to go look for him. That's when I found him in the car. I did everything I could to get him out of the locked car. To think anything else is absolutely wrong."
  • On her divorce settlement: "Money doesn't make you happy, but I have to be honest: It is making some things easier."

Then why did Tiger crash into a fire hydrant if Elin wasn't chasing him?

Her comments still don't seem genuine. It's obvious that her words are carefully chosen and she is following a script written by her handlers.

But with a large amount of money at stake I can't blame them.

Don't air your dirty washing in public, for you and your children. He has been named and shamed, surely that's enough now. You are acting just like the sluts where. You already look you all had the same agendas. Money!

Gosh I would go through hell twice to get even a tenth of Woods worth. Hell maybe even three times.

I dont know if i would survive though.......
