Elin Woods and husband Tiger Woods exit during Opening Ceremony of The Presidents Cup at Harding Park Golf Course on October 7, 2009 in San Francisco, California.
I've been through hell
''I've been through hell,'' Elin said. ''It's hard to think you have this life, and then all of a sudden - was it a lie? You're struggling because it wasn't real. But I survived. It was hard, but it didn't kill me.''
Kiss him goodbye
Elin Nordegren's marriage to Tiger Woods is officially over and she gave a wide-ranging, candid interview to People to finally address lingering questions about the last nine months.
''Forgiveness takes time. It is the last step of the grieving process,'' said Elin, on whether she'll ever forgive Tiger.
On rumors she hit Tiger
''There was never any violence inside or outside our home,'' Elin said. ''The speculation that I would have used a golf club to hit him is just truly ridiculous.''
Not happy much longer
Elin and Sam joined Tiger on the sidelines for Stanford's football game against Cal, just a week before the fateful accident turned their lives upside down.
Elin Nordegren showed up at the Sony Open to watch Rafael Nadal take on Andy Roddick, but she didn't talk to the press.
Along for the Ryder
Elin Woods, third from left, was a fixture along with other golfer's wives at Ryder Cup events during her short marriage to Tiger Woods.
She's not watching
Elin, right, says she hasn't watched any golf since the scandal broke in November.
Part of their divorce agreement stipulates that Elin and Tiger will share custody of daughter Sam, pictured, and her little brother Charlie.
Elin's busy life
''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,'' said Elin.
