on the racks: elin does people

19 hours of interviews later, People Magazine has their latest cover story hitting the racks:

Elin Nordegren talked to them over a span of 4 days totaling 19 hours for this breaking-the-silence story that apparently didn't earn anyone any money. [But let's be honest... a few thousand from the magazine would be nothing compared to her divorce settlement, I'm sure.]

As much as this is a huge story, there's nothing surprising as far as I can tell. It sucked that her husband cheated on her, she had no idea, and there was never any physical harm done.

Here are some of her highlighted quotes as a JIC [just in case, duh]:

"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.... 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."

"I always believe the best of people, and when you do that, you're going to be really screwed sometimes. My fear when this first happened was that I wouldn't be that way anymore, but I haven't lost that."

The second quote: Perfect. So true. Relate-able.

I think this whole ordeal made her a million times more famous than she was before, and I think she'll be okay. I know it sucks. I was in her shoes once upon a time.... but homegirl is rich fo' life. She'll be okay.
