A buxom blonde lingerie model linked to Tiger Woods confessed she had a tryst with the married father of two but denied reports that she was a high-priced call girl hired by the golfing great for steamy sex romps.

"I got nothing out of this relationship but a broken heart," Jamie Jungers told NBC's "Today" show.

The Trashy Girls Lingerie model said she knew Woods was married when she fell for him after first meeting him at a Vegas nightclub but refused to take all the blame for the sex scandal fallout.

"I'm not going to take the full blame for this," she said. "I never wanted for this to come out."

The shapely self-described mistress said she spoke out because she wanted to correct the "false information" reported in the tabloids that she was a paid escort for the athlete and to tell her side of the story.

"There will always be a place in my heart for Tiger," Jungers said. "There are parts of me that's angry and parts of me that find it unbelievable.  ... I'm pretty heartbroken." 

The sitdown comes after another of the 10 women reportedly linked to the world's No. 1 golfer offered a televised apology to Woods' wife for having what she claimed was a three-year relationship that included nearly two dozen sexual encounters with the married father of two.

When asked if Elin Nordegren, Woods' wife, should leave her husband in the midst of the allegations of infidelity, Jaimee Grubbs offered this advice: "I would seriously try to work it out. The person he is is amazing and I know that she fell in love with that."

"I couldn't describe how remorseful that I am to have hurt her family and her emotionally," buxom blonde Grubbs told Extra TV Wednesday night.

"I wouldn't have pursued him if he didn't pursue me. I mean, when he did, I just figured he was single, and I didn't think to ask." 

"If it wasn't me, it was going to be other girls," the 24-year old said. "I didn't do it to purposely hurt her."

The waitress-turned-one-time reality TV star said her relationship with Tiger was not all physical, though she stopped short of saying that she loved him.

"I can't say that I would ever go back to him. I would definitely have a relationship with him whether it was friends or just to have him in my life," she said. "But as far as going back to him emotionally like I was -- I don't know f I can put myself through that again.

"I did never say that I loved him," she said. "I didn't let myself get that far." In a follow up interview Thursday, Grubbs admitted she was "starting to" fall in love with Woods.

The apology came amid uncorroborated reports of steamy texts between Woods and Grubbs -- including one exchange that reportedly took place on the eve of Woods' Nov. 27 car accident that led to reports he cheated on his wife of five years, model Elin Nordegren.

Meanwhile, as the alleged mistress tally ticks upward, the 33-year-old golfing great’s popularity continued to plunge.

Two years ago the endorsement king enjoyed an 83% approval rating. Now, only 38% of Americans have a favorable opinion of Woods -- down from 56% just last week, according to a Rasmussen poll

The burgeoning scandal also threatens to irrevocably tarnish Woods' previously squeaky-clean image. 

The once-omnipresent pro golfer has vanished from primetime commercials since the car accident. A line of Gatorade sports drink named after Woods was axed by PepsiCo, although the company said the decision was not related to the blossoming sex scandal.

Woods earns $100 million a year for endorsements and tournaments and has taken in $750 million since going pro in 1996, according to Forbes. His sponsors include Nike, Tag Heuer and Gillette, to name a few.

Even the campaign to get Woods a congressional medal has come to an abrupt halt. Democratic Rep. Joe Baca of California said "in light of recent developments" he would no longer advocate that the golfer deserve the Congressional Gold Medal this session, according to Bloomberg.

Woods, who has never admitted to any infidelity, provided a mea culpa last week for unspecified "transgressions" against his family.
