According to an ABC article, http://abcnews.go.com/Nightline/exclusive-jesse-james-opens-sandra-bullock-nightline/story?id=10690409, Jesse James wants to come clean and explain why he cheated on his wife, actress Sandra Bullock. What is he going to say? “Oops, I tripped and fell and landed on top of several tattooed females?” He’ll be appearing on ABC’s Nightline this Tuesday, May 25th. Spare us the public apology and teary-eyed sorrow.
How do you explain something like that? Cheating with one woman is bad enough, cheating with multiple women is unforgivable. The only person he owes an explanation to is his wife, who is hopefully busy with her newly adopted son and not worrying about where Jessie James and his weapon of mass destruction are going to hit next.
How do you explain causing someone you vowed to love unfathomable sorrow and embarrassment? Once you’re busted, tell the truth! “Yes, we were married, but I’m a horn-dog. I need multiple women to satisfy me. I have way to much testosterone and an over-zealous libido. The monster in my pants sometimes takes over my mind. I love you. Please forgive me.”
I’m aware that some of us women can be banshees and run a man off by our behavior. Yes, we can sometimes be hard to deal with, confusing, demanding or seemingly impossible to please or we get preoccupied and get a little tight with the affection, but that’s no excuse.
How come famous men always seem to cheat with skanky women, who are often much less attractive than their wives. Occasionally, you’ll find a man slipping with an accomplished women or a very attractive one, but most of the time, it’s a skuzz-ball who doesn’t seem to have much going on in her life.
If things are so unbearable at home and relief is found only in a sordid affairs, then maybe there’s a better way to handle the situation. I have three word’s for cheating men: communication, agreement and divorce. If you don’t love your wife or the thrill is gone, then break up amicably and in the best interest of the children, if there are any. Divide the assets and move on as peacefully as possible. The man is then free to go on a sexual frenzy and the scorned wife can recover and she eventually will. Why prolong the agony until it erupts into a media frenzy and career carnage?
Yes, I know there is much to consider when walking away from a marriage, especially when children, money and assets are involved (trust me, I know). Being famous, complicates it more so, because you have to explain to those you love and the world.
What makes more sense, getting a divorce and preparing the children for the possibility that mommy and/or daddy may find another person but they’ll always be loved and care for their children. Surely, it can’t be better to let them find out the hard way – abruptly and shockingly – and turn everybody’s lives into a three-ring circus complete with scary clowns?
