As an African American Woman I have extremely conflicting emotions towards Tiger Woods. There is my gut feeling that turns my stomach at the way that he’s treated his wife and his family, and there are the sane rational feelings that tell me no matter what Tiger Woods has done he’s the master of his craft and what I should be studying are his mental strengths and characteristics that allowed him to be the Master of the Masters, that allowed him to be the first nonwhite person to ever win the Masters. These are qualities worth embracing and loving but lately the stomach turning has not stopped.
Daily there is a new story about Tiger Woods character that literally makes me dislike him and think that he’s a rotten egg. The tales of mistresses are not enough to make me hate him, he’s married he’s a billionaire his wife can have literally anything in this world she wants except the fidelity of Tiger Woods, not bad for a woman that’s gone from working in a boutique and being a nanny to being the wife of a billionaire. However the manner upon which he conducted his last affair with Rachel Uchitel, Joy Behar had to apologize to for saying Uchitel she’s a Hooker, has been startling. The careless text messages have been jaw dropping Tiger writes the following to Rachel Uchitel,
When reading the text messages that Tiger Woods wrote to Rachel Uchitel and connecting them with the persona of Rachel Uchitel my heart takes over and I feel extreme disgust for Tiger Woods. Infidelity is wrong but when it appears to be with a a woman who looks like she’s done the whole golf team or helped the whole golf course be unfaithful to their wives, my head cannot reconcile me to the genius athlete that Tiger Woods is. While I don’t believe that hitting someone in the head with a golf club is the right thing to do, and I do think that Elin should have seen the inside of a jail at least overnight, I do believe the circumstances that led Elin Woods to clunk her husband on the head could definitely be called a justifiably out of her mind moment. Tiger Woods is alleged to have spent Thanksgiving Day frantically texting Rachel Uchitel the woman above with her mouth on another woman’s thigh, and with the five guys, he forgot to erase one picture and left his “smart” phone at home with a picture of a naked uchitel on it that she had sent to him that day with the full knowledge that it was the First Thanksgiving of Wood’s nine month old and two is such a precious age for the other child, Uchitel chose that day to spend it sending naked pictures to Woods while he was at least trying to be a family man, what a woman! In any event the wife of Tiger Woods become so enraged by the way that Tiger Woods was treating her and over the picture, she hit him in the head with a golf club and you know the rest of the saga.
The point to be made here is I am an avid twitterer and texting while with a date, loved ones, and people that you like and respect and have taken the time to be with you is so disrespectful. I have even twittered that the world did not lose much of a man when AJ or RJ of The Real Housewives of Atlanta was killed because I saw one episode of Atlanta housewives and observed whatever his name texting the whole time he was at a party. If I felt this way watching RJ/AJ I can only imagine my feelings towards watching Tiger woods texting the woman above with her mouth on another woman’s thigh and with the five guys, texting her the whole Thanksgiving Holiday. I know I would want to clunk tiger on the head too because every time I think of the Atlanta housewives episode with RJ or AJ I get really angry that someone would treat someone like that.
While my head still admires Tiger Woods, my heart is just not with him. While my head says Elin no longer has to hang clothes on a rack or wipe the nose of someone elses snotty nosed children my heart says nobody should text their mistress in front of their wife. Mistress time is mistress time and home time is home time the two should not mix. Tiger Woods should have shown some sort of decency in his dealings with his family and all for what the woman who made Joy Behar apologize to her for saying Uchitel its a Hooker.
The author of this post has nothing against divorce and does not believe marriage should be a life term in the penitentiary, but she does believe that when someone can no longer be the majority of the person the other one married they should be honest and call it quits. I have no clue what Tiger Woods prenup says but if it says he has to give Elin Woods 300 million dollars if he leaves her then he should have swallowed it and left instead of being the FOOL of The Decade. Elin Nordgram Woods deserved more so much more than what she got a heartless Prince that drove her insane.
