The actress had to take the fall and drive herself under the bus to try and protect the wholesome image of the actor. It takes about ten minutes to find a dozen people he has cheated with but the actress has to be the villain.
The messiness is what happens when you don't get your lover to sign a NDA and then break his heart. Also, when he started hinting at it a year ago is when you could have out a stop to it, or tried. That A list acting couple is probably on a mission this week to get everyone else to sign something.
This A list acting couple has discovered their previous habit of not being together during their marriage so they were free to explore the crazy stuff they like to explore was the right route to go. Being at home together exposes the fact they really don't like each other all that much and also they were pretty crap parents.
You don't see the tabloids discussing this because they don't want to make members of the celebrity cult angry who are stars in shows and movies. However, there has been a bit if a rift. Apparently this long time A- list married couple have called it quits. Oh, there won't be any divorce filings or anything like that, but they are leading separate lives in completely different places.
Seemingly every week, we move closer to the truth from this acting couple consisting of a B+ lister and a permanent A lister. At some point soon, they will both come out. I expect the first thing will be that they have an open marriage.
It shouldn't take some celebrity to finally convince everyone that this A- list-ish mostly television actress/now host was a member of the cult. I mean, she and her much higher on the list husband opened a school to indoctrinate youth into the cult and it wasn't just for giggles.
Right now, the unwritten rule is you have to be an Academy Award winner/nominee to join the club. That box can be checked. Generally at least one of your offspring has to be a minor. An exception is being made to that because it is so close. Plus, the club likes high profile members and you get several with this family.
