Star Magazine is reporting that Al Gore cheated on his soon-to-be-ex-wife Tipper with Laurie David – the ex-wife of Seinfeld creator Larry David and the co-producer of Gore’s Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth. And while the pages of Star and its ilk might typically be filled with unreliable sources and sensationalist headlines, these crappy tabloids have recently had a pretty impressive track record of outing cheating public figures (remember the Pulitzer Prize nomination that The National Enquirer received for their coverage of John Edwards’s affair?). So I, and plenty of other news outlets, are inclined to believe this one.
I’m tired of ranting about lies, infidelity and the dangers of Tiger Text. We’re in the middle of a cheating epidemic and it’s pathetic. There’s not much more to be said. So, the only real comment I have on this story is…
Seriously, Al? I’m all for climate change, but can’t you campaign for the environment and hold your f’ing marriage together at the same time? Apparently not.
Another epic fail for the baby boomers. Another woman facing public embarrassment. And another reason that we should feel good about breaking away from the romantic traditions and standards of older generations.
Okay, I’m done. Moving on. Cue the return of romantic optimism!
