OMG, I just read that Maria Shriver is reconsidering her divorce to Arnold, aka, LUNKHEAD, Schwarzenegger. Are you serious? Apparantly he has been wooing her with gifts and is back to wearing his wedding ring. I'm sure that makes her feel better. I guess he didn't wear it around the family maid that he impregnated who was taking care of his wife's laundry and cooking for his kids. He sure had Mildred fooled!
I just need to sit down with Maria for a minute. I have to ask her "Why would you take him back? You're part Kennedy for God's sakes? Your uncles, cousins, or stepbrothers, whatever the relationship is, changed the course of history. You're on TV! You're rich! You have great hair. You have those big teeth and weird sort of Dudley Dooright jaw that most women would kill for, so WTF?"
I understand that she is Catholic and they have this thing against divorce. Um, just wondering, is there anything written in the bible about what you should do if your husband screws your maid-probably in your own fucking house, gets her pregnant, let's her raise a child by herself in an icky house and just fails to mention that you two gals have sons the same age? File for divorce? Seriously Maria, you are so dramatic. Get over yourself.
Needless to say this strikes a cord with me, and many others I'm sure. Look at Hillary Clinton whose husband's wax museum exhibit includes a blue dress with a sperm stain on it. Then her top aide, Huma Abedin, finds out her husband Anthony Weiner (haaaaa, sorry I can't see that name without laughing,) is texting and sexting pictures of his penis all over the place. At this time, there is no plan for divorce. Huma, seriously, you are a top aide to Hillary and were profiled in Vogue Magazine in 2007, you don't have to put up with this crap!
One thing I will say, these women handled themselves with class and dignity. I have the utmost respect for them. I don't think they drove around town with Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats," blaring from open car windows looking for their husband's car, like SOME women did.
I do believe that divorce is a last resort. Even after I found out about Giselle, I wanted to work things out. Fortunately, unlike these women, the whole world did not know what I knew, only a few close friends and the guy who runs the mail store in my neighborhood, who was kind enough to alert me to her continuing presence. My ex played both sides of the fence for quite awhile, disappearing here and there, returning, somtimes days later to my relief and rage. Finally I knew, I had enough. I have daughters, what was I teaching them? Hang on at any cost to make sure your mortgage gets paid and your tennis club membership doesn't go away? Okay, yes I miss it, but I can usually get a court at the Y if I call two days in advance and bring my own balls.
Anyway, I guess it doesn't matter how rich or famous you are, when your spouse commits infidelity, the decision has to be made, should I stay or should I go? What's right for one, may not be right for another. As far as Maria and Arnold go, his famous "I'll be back" has a whole new meaning now.
