When the Weiner scandal broke, I had a lot to say and a lot of questions. I turned to my male friends, asking them to explain why a man would enjoy online sex, especially when such online sex primarily revolves around pictures of his own genitalia. Plus, his wife is hot. So what gives? Is he an over-sexed guy in need of constant affirmation? Is his wife a prude? Perhaps he’s just a pervert? My guy friend kindly pointed me to Alec Baldwin’s article with the Huffington Post, which basically answers all of the above questions. And I’d like to close this post by saying — of all the celebrities I fantasize about having coffee with — Alec Baldwin is number one.
When the news of John Edwards affair first broke, I joked with my father about Edwards’ unattractive mistress. “If you’re going to cheat,” I said, “then she better be way hotter than your wife.” My father quickly corrected me and explained that married men cheat with unattractive women because their options are limited. Though I understand his point, I draw the line at Arnold’s new mistress. It just doesn’t make any sense. Plus, I’m sure there are oodles of hot, trashy women that want to have sex with The Terminator — married or not. So why screw the woman that lives in his house with his children? All I know is — Elliot Spitzer is looking mighty good right now.
