So, apparently cheating doesn’t take up as much free time as we thought it would. While married women were busy scouting out the profile of this weekend’s lover on AshleyMadison.com, 52,390 of them took a quick pause for survey about what they like to wear. The straying missus doesn’t walked around with a scarlet letter pinned to her chest, after all. And what did it reveal? Not a whole lot. The whole staff of The Frisky could be cheating wives according to this “data.” The top five stores a cheating wife apparently shops in are Banana Republic, J.Crew, Macy’s, Ann Taylor and H&M; she prefers Marc Jacobs purses, Ray-Ban sunglasses, and tankinis at the beach; and her summer must-haves are a maxi dress, colored skinny jeans, and a pencil skirt. How … interesting? According to AshleyMadison.com’s CEO:
“Becoming more concerned with one’s appearance is often a dead giveaway for an affair. If your spouse suddenly seems more consumed with style and putting outfits together after spending years in sweat pants, that is a tell tale sign she could be two timing.”
I’m guessing these answers are completely the same as faithful wives. But maybe that’s exactly what these cheating wives want you to think. Sneaky! [AshleyMadison.com]
After finding flirtatious texts that her boyfriend sent to another woman, Shena Moore took the all too familiar route of blaming the other woman and not her boyfriend for the transgression. Although this reaction is typical, Shena’s revenge plan, thankfully, is not. In something described by the victim Brittany Rager as “like being in a ‘Saw’ movie,” the alleged attack involved Shena; her father, Gerald Moore; her boyfriend, John Gulley (yeah, the one who sent the texts in the first place); and a pair of gardening shears.
The kicker? The two women have been friends since childhood and are so close that Brittany Rager referred to Shena’s father as “dad,” too. Keep reading »
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 speak from experience. Keep reading »
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 »
Oh, man. Watching LeAnn Rimes’ “Entertainment Tonight” interview is like watching a fly trying to get unstuck from fly paper. She just keeps on flapping and flapping even though she’s stuck. It’s painful to watch. Yeah, yeah, yeah, the interview was technically about her her new album Spitfire. But it wasn’t really. With minimal prodding from Nancy O’Dell, LeAnn overshared like crazy, admitting that she and Eddie are worried about cheating on each other, that her body wouldn’t let her stop having the affair (what?) and that she considered taking her own life over it. .
