I think that men who are married to beautiful, successful women need to prove that they are also worthy and they do it by finding other women who are interested in them. Stupid.

This is horrible! I thought I'd hear some interesting insights from evolutionary biologists (who generally have a lot to say about this sort of thing) or psychologists, but instead I get "Maybe she's a bitch" from a bunch of schlubs without last names? How much reporting did that take? Could you have at least found somebody who has a last name and didn't have something crude and inane to say? Granted, this is an inane topic, but could you at least try to raise the level of discourse half a notch?

"Maybe she's a bitch," said Dave, who was going into Dick's Sporting Goods in Canton and would not give his last name.

It is sad that being a reporter has come to asking people at the mall their take on Christie Brinkley's marriage. How about some real news?

Oh, I forgot to mention the lack of standards, and vulgarity. What a sad reflection on society. How sadder that it made it to print.

Christie Brinkley is the Alpha bitch who drove Billy Joel to drink. She might have been the "Uptown Girl" 30 years ago but makes her own downtown world a hell for her mates and children. Maybe Woody Allen will hook up with her next? Tough to get old because age is the great equalizer. Ha Ha. Really 17 homes in The Hamptons. At least Elizabetrh Taylor had her diamonds.

Window Candy is really nice to look at, that's as far as it goes. Just looking. It's to good to touch.

Maybe she WAS a bitch. Is that not possible?? I just left a beautiful woman- for precisely that reason.

It's not even seen as wrong when women do it.

Well, I've heard a saying that goes like this, beauty is, as beauty does"...still trying to figure that one out, but I think it means that iin the long run, beauty only does what it can, and it only goes so far. Basing a relationship solely on looks is perilous. If all a person has going for him/her is a beautiful face/body, then living with that person can get very old, very fast. For solid proof, just look at the divorce rate amongst the Hollywood crowd.

I'm in total agreement with you. With 4 marriages going down the tube, she obviously doesn't have much to offer in a "real" relationship.

Maybe she chose poorly and she's not a beatch. No one can make you drink afterall, your choice. She can't be that shallow to have married Mr. Joel - it certainly wasn't his looks! You can go through good times with anyone, but it's who you want to be with through the rocky times. Some people don't fare well or want to deal with rocky times and they bail - because they can or want to. All fun.
And then some are into acquisitions - I think Mr. Cook is the later.:)

Slow news day, eh? God forbid you go and look into something important, like Rep George Wilber's (D-63rd) settlement for relations with an underage girl, or Governor Rell's son's theft of a jet ski at Candlewood Lake, or ....

Instead, we get "bitch". And the newspapers wonder why they are tanking.

My bet is with Christie it's a sexual thing, she doesn't put out like porn star and her ex's all fantasized about that. Same goes for Halle Barry.

With ARod and CRod it's ARod straying because of his ego and overcompensating because he thinks he might be gay.

Madonna? Based on how ripped she is, I'd say she's just looking for a better workout.

Now I'm going to go find some real news to read about. Maybe I'll find an article on why oil is up $5 this morning because Israel is going to attack Iran.

I look at the fools who were married to Halle Berry and wonder, "What the Hell were you guys thinking?"
I remember when Dave Justice got married to Halle and I thought what a lucky guy! Then they get a divorce! I would do MOST anything to be married to her...from a deep, intellectual point of view....of-course!
