Dirty Laundry

<< < (2/11) > >>

Jones:
Once the laundry is aired, by gossips or papparazzi or whatever, the only thing the target can then do is come out with an apology. That, or be silent on the whole thing and let the gossips/magazine writers say whatever they want.

I was actually quoting an article.  Sorry, should have made that clear.

Yeah... Although I actually don't think that makes it any more appropriate for a site like this, but okay.

As for the etiquette of publicly apologizing for cheating on someone, I've realized I just don't care.  If she'd just said she was sorry, someone would be on her for not being sorry enough; she said more than that, so people are criticizing her for not just apologizing and being done.  There wasn't a way to win, and honestly the person whose opinion really matters in this situation is the person who was cheated on.

I disagree and think it's funny and ironic.  However, I have reported myself to the mods to ask.

There may not be a way to "win" with the public.  But, I still believe that it is rude to publish details of someone else's life, which is what she is doing.  She may not be able to help that the pictures were put out there, but she can help making public something that should be a private communication.


Edited to fixed quoting mishap.

Amava:
I think it is inappropriate to discuss other people's private lives, whether they are celebrities or not.

In my ideal world, the media would not be talking about this at all. 

Each time I see something like this mentioned on the internet or in a newspaper as if it is "news", I raise an eyebrow and think: "Why is this supposed to be interesting?"

I guess I just don't get it. 

But in the not-so-ideal world we live in, from the point of view of a celebrity... whether to make statements about their private lives or not? Damned if they do, damned if they don't, I suppose. I certainly have the most respect for those who don't. For those who do,well, I try to avoid reading about it. And if I do come across a story, I a. don't care and b. take everything the media says with a pound of salt.

Sharnita:
I am not impressed with cheaters but I have  to say that I think an effusive public apology is better than effusive public bragging about how cheating has led to making you happier than ever before. A lot of stars do that.
