Hey, hypothetical question for you: if your husband was busted making out with another woman and the world got to enjoy about a million sordid articles about how he was caught "kissing her entire body," how would you react to your father-in-law issuing the public statement that everyone should lighten up because really, it was no big deal? I can't say how Rupert Sanders' wife Liberty Ross is feeling right now, but I think if I were in her shoes I'd be sharing some choice words with Rupert's dad for the comment he recently gave People about his son's affair.
Such as, for instead, "GO," "FUCK," and "YOURSELF."
I don't know why Rupert Sanders' father is saying anything to the media right now, but apparently his opinion on the cheating scandal is that not only was Rupert's decision to play tongue hockey with Stewart totally nothing to get upset about, it was downright UNDERSTANDABLE.
From what I gather nothing really happened and it is all a lot of fuss about nothing. I should imagine it was something very brief. She is a very pretty girl and when you work that closely with someone for so long, sometimes things happen.
Oh sure, being photographed sucking face with a woman who is not your wife: so much fuss about NOTHING. Gosh, who hasn't done it, right? In fact, I just went outside right now and frenched the lawn service guy! What, he's an attractive guy and he's just always right there in the backyard, SOMETIMES THINGS HAPPEN OOPS I SLIPPED AND FELL ON HIS DICK.
Seriously, of ALL the things for this guy to say. Not only is it incredibly disrespectful to the people who presumably don't think this is a lot of pointless fuss at all -- Rupert's wife and mother of his two young children, for example, or Robert Pattinson who has reportedly reacted to the news by moving out of the house he shared with Stewart -- but it makes Rupert sound bad by association. Even though his own statement was markedly different ("I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family. My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together"), it's hard not to wonder if he shares his father's opinion that everyone should just get over it already.
As for whether or not Rupert's wife will stick around in the wake of the scandal, Rupert's dad wants to assure us that of course she will -- it's SO not a problem.
Of course their relationship will survive this. This is nothing—they will definitely survive all of this. It is all a lot of fuss about nothing.
Well, I hope for their sake that they can find a way to keep their family together, but even if they do, I can't imagine that it'll be easy for Liberty Ross to forgive her father-in-law for telling the world that her husband's infidelity wasn't worth getting upset about. Call me crazy, but I think the only thing worse than the whole world knowing that your husband cheated is being told you should just suck it up and stop your FUSSING about it.
Would you easily forgive your husband for kissing another woman (you know, if she was real pretty and he was working closely with her, and all)?
