My great Aunt Agatha prided herself on being married for 75 years and she had a diamond ring on each finger – gifts to her for allowing Guiseppe, her husband, his afternoon “exercise.”
We often asked her why she had so many diamonds and she would say, “Some day, you will understand.” And what we came to understand is that her husband had mistresses, or as we came to hear her whisper, “comare.” Continue reading… Keep reading »
I have no problem admitting that I believe the National Enquirer sometimes because the tabloid has a pretty impressive track record for getting things right, except when it comes to aliens. But when I read that Morgan Freeman was having an affair with his step-granddaughter, I thought the Enquirer was making something out of nothing, a misunderstanding. Now, however, I’ve changed my opinion because this scandalous charge has reportedly come out in his divorce proceedings with estranged wife Myrna. Keep reading »
When you threw your cheatin’ man out on his ass, we thought you were pretty awesome, Jenny Sanford. But now you’ve opened your mouth and said the GAYS are to blame for the moral decay in this country that led your husband, Gov. Mark Sanford, to stray from you with Argentine lover, Maria Belen Chapur and try to cover it up with some b.s. story about hiking the Appalachian trail. Keep reading »
Infidelity. I can’t decide if I’m totally shocked or wholly unsurprised by the U.K.’s Daily Mail claim that French women get married knowing (and expecting) their husbands will cheat. When Brit Lucy Wadham married her French boyfriend she had no idea he would keep on keeping on in the bedroom with all of his ex-lovers. She details a night she unknowingly attended what’s called a partouze, subtle French for “group trysts”—only figuring it out after stumbling in on three dinner party guests in a guest bedroom. Infidelity was (and is) a way of life, she explains—and not without her own propositions, either!
This all just brings us back to the universal relationship question—are we or aren’t we built for monogamy? Is marital bliss something to work for or shall we think like the French and embrace our genetic need for multiple partners? [Daily Mail U.K.] Keep reading »
Sen. Mark Sanford, the Republican governor of South Carolina, admitted at a press conference this afternoon that he has been having an extramarital affair with a “dear, dear friend” in Argentina for the past year. Incidentally, he and his wife were on a trial separation.
Cuckolded wives and politicians go together like gravy and mashed potatoes. Maybe the wives aren’t surprised—Sanford’s wife apparently knew about his Argentinian affair for months—by the cheating the same way as the public is. But what gets me every time is when Silda Spitzer stands up next Eliot while he grovels for the public’s forgiveness, or Elizabeth Edwards invites Oprah into her home to talk about John’s affair, or Larry Craig’s wife, Suzanne, walks hand-in-hand to his press conference where he denies being gay. I just roll my eyes. Keep reading »
You would think that with all the different advancements in communication having an affair would be easier. Not so, according to a survey by Telstra Corp, a dominant phone company in Australia. The survey found that 25 percent of Australian cell phone users found out their partner or someone else’s was being unfaithful through text messages. Keep reading »
We’re not fans of the “sex scandal” road to success. (Ya hear, Levi Johnston?) But that doesn’t mean we still can’t learn something from a D-lister who paid the rent because the notches on their bedpost.
Former D.C. staffer Jessica Cutler got herself a book deal (The Washingtonienne) from having anal sex with Bush employees for money and blogging it. So The Daily Beast has turned to Cutler for her sage counsel after news this week that a married, born-again Christian senator, John Ensign of Nevada, wasn’t quite as into “family values” as he purported to be. (Ensign recently admitted to an affair with Cynthia Hampton, who is married to an aide in the senator’s office.)
But you don’t have knocked boots with a hypocritical politician to appreciate Jessica’s scandal-snuffing tips. After all, nearly everyone’s cell phone has a camera on it and lots of ex-boyfriends act like dicks!
After the jump, let’s see how Jessica’s advice for “scandalettes” in the public eye can work for us normal folks and our everyday dramas. [The Daily Beast] Keep reading »
A Long Island surgeon doesn’t want to fight his estranged wife for the million dollar pad they shared. Instead, he wants the kidney he donated to her. But he’ll settle for $1.5 million compensation. Keep reading »
