Did anyone else see this interview?
I did not see the intereview, but I love her honest answer. Anyone who has never participated in an affair would not understand, why even though you lived with love,heartache and pain, there is so much passion and life behind it and in the affair. I don't regret my affair, never will. I hold no grudges against my x-ap.
My affair is past. I will always try to disuade others from entering an affair, but if one is going to enter it embrace it and all it shows you about yourself. Never say never....
For those of you who didn't see the interview, you can watch it here-
I'd love to hear your thoughts...
Thanks CM Tasha!
I was trying to find it on line and only came across some other's who had interviewed her.
I will watch it Flying and post back in. I too need distraction from the timer when exercising.
Whether you think you can or you think you can't you are probably right. A parrot can repeat what it has learned but the mark of true intelligence is applying what is learned.
Just WOW! Of course I'd heard about this, but had not seen any of the interviews. Now I want a copy of the book.
Like has already been said, I LOVED her refreshing honesty! People who have never been involved in an A probably can't wrap their minds around what she said. AND I get perturbed by society in general DEMANDING "honesty" when it comes to affairs...and to that I say in my best Jack Nicholson voice, "The truth! You can't handle the truth!". Sorry, but I just see it demanded over and over and when it's given...most people just can't handle it and want to argue and somehow change the speaker's perception....
The only sad thing about women like her who still rem·i·nisce about serial cheating men like JFK is that most of the time for men like him she was just another one he bedded. It's sad but true. Too often we as women when we have an A we are thinking of a Bridges over Madison County kind of love but serial cheaters don't even take it that serious. I saw a woman whom my brother had an A with many years ago and she talked about how wonderful of a time she and my brother had during their A. When I asked my brother about it (he's cheated a lot), he didn't even remember her at first and finally he told me that she was a woman who was a super freak and he remembered that she was desperate to please him at any cost. To me the interview was sad.
I did not see the Meredith interview but did watch the one CM Tasha posted with Ann Curry. She frequently references what was said in the interview with Meredith when she poses her question to Mimi.
I agree in the sense that I don’t think people get involved in affairs because they are a martyr. If there was no fun or excitement involved and it was all conflict and pain, I doubt many would engage in As at all. I believe there is more going on in why people get involved but certainly on the surface there is some fun and excitement.
I realize in interviews there is a bit of a cat and mouse game between interviewer and interviewee. Ann Curry will probably use whatever body language and gestures she can muster to try and get the interviewee to reveal something more than she has in other interviews. Her interview will get more hits and watches if she pulls something more out of Mimi Alford than any other interview has.
I think that declaring that one should be sad for her is disrespecting her rights to her own values.
No doubt, at all, she was prepped by her publicist.
