EEEEP. Sorry!

Hey, ya'll. Sorry I'm late getting my blog up today but I had COMPANY last night. I very very seldom get to spend quality time with friends and a cool writer chick came to Texas to visit me yesterday. Anyway, long story short, we were up talking and such until 2 am!!!! Like I said....EEEEP. I know you guys will be quick to forgive my lateness though.

I've been wondering about something. Now we've all heard about the recent tribulations of a very famous sports figure. It's all over the tv and newspapers. I'm not going to mention his name because I believe that personal problems should stay personal, ya know? I don't care if you are a celebrity or not...I don't want to know about your marriage troubles. But damn if I'm not shaking my head over something. Why, why, why would a supposedly smart person who jealously guards his privacy send out things on a voicemail or text messages? I don't get it. Don't they realize that a spurned lover will SELL this stuff to tabloids??? Most of us are on loops, we blog and comment and we KNOW that everythis is public these days. I know plenty of people who blab their personal troubles on blogs and loops but would I do it? Oh HELL NO. Yes, privacy is hard to come by these days but I will jealously guard whatever tiny shred of it that I have left.

Because they begin to believe they are invincible. Everyone practically bows down to celebrities, political figures etc. so why shouldn't this woman who "loves" him every do anything to betray him. She should feel lucky to be with him, right? I have to tell you, I'm so sick of this crap I could scream. Yeah I feel like people's lives should stay private, but damn, maybe a little public embarassment would do these guys some good. I've fought with myself on blogging about this because I have such a strong opinion about it. I know cheating isn't a rich thing or a poor thing. It's not black or white, male or female. It's basically just a jerk thing, IMO, but since with celebrities we see it so much more because of the tabloides etc. IT's like these people get position of power and think they can do anything they want. Is nothing sacred any more? Did we forget the lesson the most basic lesson we learn as children about right and wrong? I know that no one knows the story but him and his wife, but its like every time I turn around someone is cheating on their spouse. It just gets old after a while.

On a lighter note, glad you had fun with your friend!

siiiiiigh. I know. It's disappointing and to make matters worse, he took up with this 21 yr old about two weeks before this wife gave BIRTH. ARGH!!!! Infidelity just steams me. But I'm with you, these people begin to be treated like gods and think they can do anything. They surround themselves with people to cater to their every whim.

I'm totally disgusted over what happened. He was a great role model and now... he's the brunt of jokes and my heart goes out to the wife. It's all very sad and I feel bad for her and the kids because once something is done... it can never be taken back.

I'm so glad you had fun with your friend.

Think we're all on the same page with this. Every time a story like this hits the news I shake my head. Damn, John Edwards was carrying on while Elizabeth (whom I really admire) was going through CHEMO!!! Sick.

Some men think they're invincible, and 'won't get caught'. It's all about ego.

I got an email some time ago:
Smart W, Smart M= Marriage
Dumb W, Dumb M=Affair

or something to that effect!

He's human. He developed a degree of trust in the relationship. He may even have thought himself in love. But since all of this happened after that "odd" accident which involved injury and a baseball bat that his wife wielded on the back windshield--poor windshield--I think maybe broken trust became the issue.

In other words, All Hell Broke Loose--heard that voicemail where he told the other woman to not have her phone number show up on his cell anymore cause wife had seen it on his phone--and therefore, wife was after the truth.

Evidently, she found it too. So then this "love" or "trust" he felt in the relationship banished. It suddenly came time to protect himself.

Before that he felt comfortable enough with this woman to share any and everything with her. He, like so many, was living in a fairy tale world. And it was probably just fine to do all that. But once the wife came into the picture, I'm sure she insisted the other woman had to go.

So what happens when you've been messing with a woman for two or three years and you break it off with her for your wife? She gets even. She's hurting. So she strikes back any way she can. Publicly. In a way she is proving to the world that HE DID LOVE HER and shooting the bird to his wife.
She is validating herself. And gonna get some money too, of course. lol

Basically, she taught him and the wife a lesson. They messed with her. And HE just happened to be foolish enough to believe it COULD NOT happen to him. Like Kelly said, he thought he was invincible.

Sorry this post is so long, but I saw a big Dodge Ram truck with a cover on it painted all pink with beautiful artwork and lettering on it outside the mall over the weekend. What was it? An author promoting a book entitled. The Cheater's Book. Even has its own website.

Supposedly women should read this book and you'll know why he cheats and when he cheats.

The problem with all this stuff being tossed out in public is that WE--John and Jane Public have to listen to it. I could care less about celebrities and who they are doing. Most of us don't care. But there is a huge audience for it too. And THAT fuels the fire. Otherwise, Miss Other Woman would not have a platform.

Yep. Well said, Tess. I swear these 'stars' think they are invisible and nothing can hurt them. They seriously need to grow a brain. Infidelity hurts everyone involved.
