Whether or not this is true (highly unlikely given that Cherubim has posted passionately about being a Michael Jackson fan, and I find it hard to believe Elizabeth Edwards has a whole lot of time on her hands to wax poetic about the King of Pop), it reflects our culture's fascination with adultery...and the drama that frequently ensues.
The Edwards' saga has all the elements the public loves – a handsome, powerful husband; a sick, loyal wife; a manipulative "other woman"...even an enabling assistant.
We sit back with a bowl of popcorn and watch the drama unfold.
Unless you've lived it.
To those of us who know all too intimately Elizabeth Edwards' pain, there's nothing compelling about their story. It's heart-wrenching. We know how excruciating it is to endure such betrayal in relative privacy. To have it played out on the world stage -- when battling cancer -- seems cruel beyond words.
