Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders issue public apologies for their cheating scandal

Once again more Hollywood couples have succumbed to the temptations of infidelity. So what do their statements say about them?

Kristen – I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardised the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.’

Kristen’s first line is ‘the’ standard line for infidelity. It’s empty. Statements generally are contrived, impersonal and lack feeling and sincerity and emotion. However, she is focusing on how others feel and not on herself, which is a positive thing. The only personal thing here is that she’s mentioned her partner by name and her last sentence does show some remorse.

But as with all infidelity, is it remorse at what she’s done, or remorse that she has been found out?

She has played down the affair and is keen to mention that it was a ‘momentary indiscretion’, to imply that this was an impulsive affair and there were no feelings involved. Her use of the word ‘jeopardise’ means she is fully aware of the value of her partner and what was at stake here. In my opinion, although contrived, Kristen’s is the more heartfelt statement as she accepts responsibility for her actions, unlike Rupert….

Myleene Klass & Graham Quinn Split


I empathise with both parties in the Myleene Klass and Graham Quinn break up. Everyone is quick to judge without really knowing what the facts are.

Once again the ‘other woman’ is being blamed for a marriage split. When are people going to take responsibility for their own marriages and their success/failure? I realize it’s easy for people to blame the other woman, but do they not see that it is excusing any bad behaviour on the man’s part? There are still no solid facts that he was having an affair, at the moment it’s rumours, so he and Sarah Robinson are being unfairly judged.

A possible rumour that I read in one paper was that Myleene was sleeping with her children in her marital bed as well as Graham. If this story is true then I am not surprised he wanted out. Once children are in the marital bed, in most cases it’s a slippery slope to marriage/relationship destruction. Their sex life would be pretty much none existent.

Hopefully this wasn’t true.

However clearly there were problems in their relationship and it’s sad that they weren’t picked up on, addressed and dealt with. Many couples either both or one party, choose to put their head in the sand and ignore problems.

Filming with Richard E Grant for BBC Worldwide

A few weeks ago I did some filming with Richard E Grant for a new documentary that’s due to be aired on BBC Worldwide in the Autumn. Richard was the perfect interviewer. In fact he was that good that I didn’t actually realize that the interview had started! It took me about 2 minutes. Doh! Well I am blonde after all 🙂 He made me feel like I was in an intimate, private conversation with him, rather than in a studio with about 9 other people. He was interested, open minded, none judgmental and a real gentleman. Anyhow that’s all I can say right now, apart from after interviewing little old me he went to interview Brit Ekland! Richard emailed me afterwards to tell me he had been singing my praises to TV stations, so you never know, next I might have my own show 😉

Anyhow I’ll keep you posted when I get the date it’s going to be aired. Watch this space….
