Common sense goes a long wayPosted Tuesday, March 16, 2010, at 9:47 AM
There's an old saying in Hollywood that "all press is good press," even if it is bad.
There's also the standard saying, "you can't have your cake and eat it, too," which, in all honesty, I never really understood.
But I digress.
Recently, former presidential candidate John Edwards' mistress, Rielle Hunter, spilled the beans to GQ magazine.
Only hours after the article began to filter through the Internet, reports surfaced that Hunter wasn't pleased with suggestive photographs within the magazine spread.
Monday morning, "The View," co-host Barbara Walters admitted she had already spoken with Hunter, who reportedly "cried" after seeing the "repulsive" photographs.
Walters apparently stated that Hunter, 45, "trusted" the photographer at the shoot to capture "classy photos."
One of the pictures was of Hunter wearing only a white collared shirt and a pearl necklace while in bed.
My only question to this is, what was she thinking?
If she believes now that the photographs taken were "repulsive," then why didn't she believe that when the photographs were being taken?
Where was all this anguish when the interview and photo spread took place?
According to Walters, Hunter said she "went with the flow," during the photography shoot, which also included her holding her 2-year-old daughter with Edwards, while baring her stomach.
I haven't really paid a lot of attention to this fiasco since Edwards' star began to plummet after word surfaced of the affair.
Although I believed Edwards to be a viable candidate prior to this, the moment information surfaced about this fling was the moment I lost complete respect for Edwards.
Call me old-fashioned if you want, but I have always believed that if you take a vow to be with one person for the remainder of your life, you keep that vow.
You don't stray from that. Period.
After he admitted to the affair, no respect.
He didn't deserve it.
And that had nothing to do with the additional fact that his wife, Elizabeth Edwards, was suffering from cancer when the reports surfaced. But that tidbit of information didn't help him or what I thought about the man in general.
Initially, he seemed like a good man.
But, back to the main point. If you are going to "bare" your soul to a magazine, don't bare your body if you feel like the photos have a "possibility" of being viewed as "repulsive" by anyone, including yourself.
Have a little more common sense than that.
