Elin Nordegren isn’t going to let her husband Tiger Woods’ mistress-bangin’ get her down. The pretty Swede stepped out in Orlando today with her kids and a nanny/friend by her side, grabbing lunch at a local Thai restaurant.
Elin is obviously making a statement by not wearing her wedding rings, but she has yet to reveal if she’s staying with the cheating golfer. But if she decides give the single life a try, she already has an army of Swedish female fans rooting her on. “Swedish women like Elin are brought up to be independent and strong,” Aftonbladet op-ed editor Karin Magnusson told the Daily Beast, “and you can only stand for just so much humiliation. We’re excited about this. We’re hoping Elin will file for divorce and show Tiger—and the world—what Swedish women stand for.”
Or, as another Swedish columnist succinctly put it: “…Elin didn’t take any sh*t. Just like a tough Swedish girl shouldn’t. Elin is our heroine.” [Photo: Splash News Online]
