Yesterday, Jezebel revealed that they had maybe probably discovered the identity of the “other woman” in the breakup of Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon’s marriage. According to the piece, Eva Prinz, 34, has been married twice and is believed to still be married to her second husband, with whom she allegedly has an open marriage. Moore and Gordon, members of the now defunct band Sonic Youth, were together for 30 years before splitting in late 2011. In an interview with Elle, Gordon said that they split because Moore, in the midst of a “midlife crisis,” was carrying on an affair with a “starstruck woman” that she declined to name. Jezebel has identified that woman as Prinz, an art book editor (bearing a striking resemblance to Emily VanCamp in this photo, BTW) who met Moore when she commissioned him to write a book about mixtapes in 2005. The details Gordon gave in her Elle interview do match Jezebel’s profile of Prinz, so while there’s no firm confirmation, yeah, looks like she’s probably the woman, as Jezebel put it, “who broke up Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore.”
Except I wouldn’t put it that way. Because, in my view, the only people who could break up Moore and Gordon’s marriage are Moore and Gordon. In this case, going by Gordon’s account (as Moore has chosen not to share his), Moore broke his wedding vows and refused to end his affair, so Gordon ended the marriage. That Prinz was — allegedly! — the third party involved still doesn’t make her responsible.

I’ve been doing my utmost to debate less, but it’s hard when you’re as naturally opinionated as I am. This is compounded by the fact I come from a highly opinionated gene pool. Our family dinners sometimes spiral into debates. And when I say “sometimes,” I really mean 90 percent of the time.
Usually my mother plays referee, and when I say “referee,” I mean she’ll eventually shout, “Will you all be quiet!” My father plays the contrarian, opposing whatever view I hold. And my sisters may or may not be on my side.
I thought everyone did this — debate over dinner, as an expression of love and then pretend like nothing happened. Apparently not! Dinner is for small talk. So I’ve been trying to reprogram myself whenever I go out, because my opinions can be a bit disruptive. Keep reading »
Do you know how, on job applications, they always ask if you’ve ever been arrested? And then they invariably follow it up with, “If yes, please explain?”
Do you ever get the feeling that if you write “yes” on the first blank, there is absolutely nothing you can write on the second that will save your application from a permanent trip to the reject pile?
Well, there’s one relationship question that I believe operates under the same premise. That question is: “Have you ever cheated on someone?”
Sure, you can answer yes and try to explain. You can stutter and stall all you want. But, the moment your mouth starts to make that “y…” sound, your forehead will immediately be stamped with a giant, red “CHEATER” in indelible ink.
So, I’ll confess now. Yes, I’ve cheated on a girlfriend. Stamp away. But, I’m still going to give my grand explanation. Keep reading »
Having an affair is a terrible idea, especially considering that the downsides of getting caught include: ruining your marriage, losing the respect of your children, and in rare cases, being forced to step down as the Director of the CIA. Just ask General David Petraeus who stupidly cheated on his wife with the writer of his gushy tell-all book. Read more…
t was quite the week: a massive hurricane hit the East Coast, a fierce election came to an end and now this: America’s sweetheart CIA director, General David Petraeus, resigns for “personal reasons,” (ahem, cheating on his wife).
Petraeus is known in this country as a hero. As the director of the CIA, Petraeus has been our go-to guy for handling terrorism, our military and global threats. But after an F.B.I. investigation stumbled upon his extramarital affair via his computer, our nation’s superman was encouraged to step down just two days after the president’s reelection. Read more…
Recently, dating and social media site Cheaterville released a survey of its users on the topic of hair color and cheating. The website is a place where you can publicly call out cheating partners — their slogan is “Don’t be the last to know” — and see names of others who have cheated. According to their results, hair color seems to play a role in how likely you are to cheat.
Cheaterville’s survey found that blonde women are more likely to cheat than brunettes, whereas male cheaters are more likely to have brown hair. In fact, 43 percent of female cheaters were blonde (and blondes are, what, 5 percent of the population?), 23 percent were brunette and 11 percent had black hair. As for the men, 40 percent of the unfaithful had brown hair, 23 percent had black hair, 20 percent were blonde and 5 percent were redheads. Read more…
It was only a matter of time before Danny DeVito’s other women started crawling out of the woodwork and the details are pretty gross. A source told Radar Online that the “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” funny man has been cheating on his estranged wife, Rhea Perlman for years and especially liked abusing his power on movie sets. Apparently Danny likes ‘em young and isn’t afraid to pull the ‘ole “I can make you a star kid! But first let me see your boobs!”
“It was kind of pathetic because she was very young and beautiful and obviously just having sex with him in hopes that he’d make her a star,” a source told Radar Online about one of his conquests. “Danny would have hislimo driver drive them all over the city and they’d canoodle in the back before going back to his room together. I felt bad for Rhea, and I felt bad for the girl, too, because she was just a naive kid from Pittsburgh. It was sad to see her pretending to really like him when really it was just because of who he was. And worse, Danny preying on vulnerable young girls like that.” Read more…
This week’s hot Hollywood news is that Robert Pattinsonand Kristen Stewart may be getting back together following her “indiscretion” with director Rupert Sanders.
… and why not? An affair doesn’t have to be the end of a relationship. In fact, it can be a new beginning, bringing a couple closer than ever.
But, there are things to watch out for along the way if you want a healthy, lasting relationship post-infidelity. Here are six pieces of advice for Robert and Kristen and all couples in this situation. Read more…
According to this conspiracy theory video, “sometimes what seems absurd to most people is the very truth.” You can watch the video and judge for yourself if you believe those now infamous photos of K-Stew and Rupert Sanders up against the fence are the “very truth.” While poorly made, this painstaking exploration of every minute discrepancy in the fence photos provides a compelling argument. If not compelling, at least fun to consider.
Was this whole cheating scandal a publicity stunt for the benefit of all careers involved or legit houghmagandy? You be the judge. [WOW]
