The word is out about us moms: Most of us, it turns out, do not like Tiger Woods anymore. Now, if you’re so over him and the collapse of his world, we’re sorry — but there’s something to be said for what’s happening out there, and that suddenly husband after husband is being caught: Tiger, Jesse James, and this week the husband of beautiful actress Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon, the mother of 2-year-old twin boys, found out her husband was having an affair for FIVE years. It’s like – WTF!? What is with all these people cheating???
Elin and Sandra
We hope they leave them. Elin was spotted taking a solo flight after Tiger lost at the ‘Masters’ and good for her. It must have killed her to see how much his fans were rooting for him — it’s like such a slap in the face. And as it turns out, Jesse James is even more of a douche, and the women even nastier than those of Woods. By the way, Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon (star of NYPD Blue), upon finding out her husband had been cheating with a “S*&T in Chicago” sent a mass email to her husbands’ office revealing his affair. You Go girl!
What YOU Said
Modernmom readers had a lot to say when asked the question what do you think about Tiger, and some responses were definitely worth posting and could also apply to some of the other men that have been caught out there. Thanks for your candid responses ladies:
“I don’t like how corporate sponsors feel the need to make commercials for him.” — Kellie Jones–Good thing, he’s only got Nike left though…
“It was so nice to see nice guys can finish first (at the Masters Golf Tournament) It was touching to see Phil to go his wife first after his win.”–Christina Signore Christensen
“I believe these people who are paid a TREMENDOUS amount of money and are idolized by the general public should be held to high standards of behavior.”–Toni McClellan Shuler
“It wasn’t just a one-time choice for Tiger. He repeated his behavior over and over again. He’s a fool and needs to grow up.”
What Would YOU Do?
The fact is this, infidelity happens a lot more than we realize and it would be a terribly humiliating experience to grow through. Though it’s easy to say “If my husband did that I would be done!” everything changes with children, and I wonder what position I would truly take. Though I’m rooting for Elin and Sandra and Garcelle to run run run and take their money for all it’s worth, I’m sure it’s been incredibly difficult for these women to swallow and digest all of this — add kids in the mix, and it’s just total and utter heartbreak. What would you do, if you found an email, or a note, or a text revealing your boyfriend, or your husband, or your partner was having an affair? Would you stay? Go? Would you be torn?
