Instant Karma's gonna get you....


Have you all heard that Shania Twain is divorcing her husband of 14 years, Mutt Lange? (I remember him for producing AC/DC's classic "Back In Black.") Apparently, he cheated on her with his secretary, who also happened to be a good friend of Shania's. Ouch man, betrayal in duplicate! I guess Mutt really IS a dog.

I'm not a fan of Shania's, but I think she has a really good voice, and c'mon, she's a knockout! Doesn't it make you wonder why he would cheat on such a beautiful woman? I don't know what she's like personally, but she's always come across as decent and likable in interviews. I think it just proves that cheating behavior usually isn't the fault of the cheatee, it's some kind of fatal flaw in the cheater.

It makes me grateful and happy that Ken and I are so solid. Quite simply, I would never cheat on him because I would never hurt him that way. It really IS a betrayal, and my loyalty lies with him. It would just be a terribly mean thing to do, and I care for him way too much to ever betray his trust.

I've had a cheater or two in my past, and I'm glad I don't have to deal with that anymore. I dated this one guy for several years and found out after I broke up with him that I was one of several "girlfriends." Ugh, it makes my skin crawl to even think of that whoredog. Last I knew, he had at least two illegitimate children by different women. I heard from a friend a while back that this guy had finally gotten married, but had told my friend that he had to take Viagra to keep up with "them all," so who knows how many he's still got on the line. Charming, eh?

But wait...there's more! And I think you'll enjoy it as much as I did! My friend also told me that this ex had been diagnosed with Bell's Palsy, and for a long time, one side of his face was mostly paralyzed. My pal said that the guy had lost most of his hair, and that due to the Bell's Palsy, his nose ran constantly and he drooled. <sigh> I love a happy ending, don't you?

Is it bad that I'm sitting here with a little grin on my face? I can't deny that I definitely felt a sense of vindication when I heard about that, because I feel that Karma caught up with the guy at last. It always does, don't you think? There's a wonderful German word: Schadenfreude (pronounced Shah-den-froy-da). It literally means "bad joy," and figuratively it means a perverse enjoyment in the misfortunes of others. I'm happy to say that I've never felt that kind of sentiment towards people I care about and like, but when I heard that about that ex, believe me, the Schadenfreude was thick enough to cut with a knife! Ha!

So hang in there, Shania. I bet Karma is going to catch up with Mutt, too, and before long, you'll be throwing your own little Schadenfreude party.

Oh, how sad for Shania. I am not a fan of her music either (and yes, she is gorgeous), however, I hoping for a happily ever after after the tragedies she suffered in her early years. Well, maybe it is still to come....and you're right, Karma is a Bitch, so watch out Mutt!

Shania came from no money and a shattered family....i think she was very much in love with Mutt and he was, in part, a father figure to her.....he "saved" her from a crappy past and helped make her a bonafide superstar of country music. Country music never really embraced her because she was one of the first "pop/country" artists. I saw a pic of the women Mutt cheated on Shania with.....i guess it is true that when a man cheats it is NOT about looks.

I have been married 4 times. Thress of them cheated on me. That is so horrible to go through. I guess I am a cheater magnet lol. Dont feel bad about wishes things like that on him. I have wished a few bad things on those exs of mine. It is probably bad of me but they caused me alot of pain., Christine

My ex the one I had to deal with at the wedding with his parents. Is with someone who used to be a good friend of mine. Incidentally while we were separated she called for me, and got him...I later heard from another friend as soon as she heard about the separation she claimed he was game. Thankfully she wasn't at the wedding, it kind of hurt Skye though that she didn't even make the effort. She was in her life for 7 years before Skye moved in with me. Sigh..Good news would be he's more miserable than ever, his parents are god awful and he don't look so good losing all that thick blk Italian hair...Doc puts him to shame with his shaved head (winks). So yeah what goes around comes around. (Hugs) Indigo

Yup, karma will get ya' every time!  ...and cheaters, cheaters, pumpkin eaters...well, they get it back double!  Why people have to cheat is beyond me.  Its gross, nasty, and does the cheater really think he/she is that great a catch to have a string of lovers on the side?  YUK!  I've had my share of cheaters, too, and good riddance to all of them!
