If you were Liberty Ross and you knew that hunky director husband Rupert Sanders was having an affair with a young Kristen Stewart, would you tip off the media and blow the whole thing up in their faces? Yeah, that happened. Well, it may have happened. Hollywood Life is reporting that the scorned wife personally tipped off the media, enabling photogs everywhere to stalk her hubby and KStew and then BAM -- front page news. Robert Pattinson in tears. Robert Pattinson hiding at Reese's. The whole shebang.
Outing your own husband? Man, I don't think that's something I could ever do. Mostly because, emotionally, I'd never be able to handle it.
If my hubby cheated on me, you know the one I will have one day down the line, I don't think I'd have the guts to do what Liberty did. Actually, maybe guts is the wrong word. I wouldn't have the confidence. By putting him out there on a silver platter for the whole world to crucify and criticize, Liberty was also putting out their marriage for the same type of scrutiny.
I don't know about you, but my mind would go crazy worrying about what everyone else thinks. I know I know, it shouldn't matter. But heck, it's natural. Would people think I wasn't good enough for him, and that's why he cheated? Was I doing something that made him cheat? Oh god and possibly the worst, was I not satisfying him in the bedroom? Shudder.
For me, relationships have always been a very personal thing. Sure, there's the occasional venting gabfest with girlfriends over a bottle of merlot -- but what happens behind closed doors with the person I'm seeing is our business and our business alone. It's all about trust. And when that person breaks that trust, very very scary things can happen.
With the case of the Kristen and Rupert scandal, Twilight fans everywhere revolted, lashed out, formed anti-KStew groups, and swore death upon her. Lucky for us normal folk, I don't know if anything's scarier than that.
If you knew your spouse or significant other was cheating, would you tell your friends? Do you worry about what other people think of your relationships?
