The Spitzer story looks like it's ultimately sourced to Spitzer. Not surprising that he'd think she knew. At least in fictional adultery stories, it's not uncommon for the adulterer to be convinced that their spouse knows, but their spouse actually doesn't - maybe suspects, but can't quite believe - and then is shocked to find it out. I think Anna Karenina starts with a misunderstanding of this type. And how could real life ever possibly be different from that in a novel?

Via the Superficial, who also tells me that Spitzer's wife knew about the hookers.

I almost always assume the wife of these type of guys knows, but there's are differences between "knowing" it, being confronted with it, and being publicly confronted with it.

I think Baio slept with most of those women before they were very famous, so it might be that he just knows where to fish, so to speak. You have to figure that a non-gross somewhat-famous guy doesn't have a lot of trouble sleeping with aspiring starlets, and some of them actually become starlets, which makes him seem more impressive....

I almost always assume the wife of these type of guys knows, but there's are differences between "knowing" it, being confronted with it, and being publicly confronted with it.

Most people know in their gut that something is going on. But, they choose not to find out because their life not knowing is acceptable.

Plausible deniability gives a lot of marriage a couple of extra years or even a lot of years.

It only becomes a problem when they are confronted by it and expected to do something about it.

You forgot nancyboy.

can't be that sexist; nobody's hit the most offensive one yet.

Don't hit Ogged. He had cancer, you know.

Maybe it hadn't yet been posted when Ogged put this post up here, but the Superficial now has video of Rosanne Barr talking about her vaginal rejuvenation surgery, and how she now has a "va-junior."

Sorry I missed your guessing game, oudemia--I've been teaching and interviewing job candidates.

I'd forgotten the Jawbreaker song. I'll have to play it for her. Maybe put it on her next "rock out d" (which is what she calls the punk rock discs I've been giving her.)

My big crush was on Erin Gray of Buck Rogers

My pre-teen love for Wilma Deering knew no bounds. When you find the video of her behaving absurdly please, keep it to yourself.

Say what you will about Astley, he had a set of pipes on him. And the singing was pretty good, too.

The song is perfect, but golly that video is not good.

Did someone from here leave the "The song's not about suicide, you emo kids!" comment?

Holy shit, Joanie Cunningham turned out to be a total nightmare once she grew up. Who could tell, she was so cute! If only women could really instantiate the fantasies their beauty leads us to project onto them, instead of being annoying messed-up ordinary people.

Slattern, trollop, floozy, etc.: all great words.

For men, you guys forgot macaroni, fop, ladies' man (how could you not remember that one?), houseboy (maybe someone mentioned this and i mentioned it). I'm sure there are others.

"Moll".

This was very popular in schoolyard taunts when
I was a kid. As in "Getchyer own boyfriend
why dontcha?, ya moll.". Also popular in
graffiti, where it would usually be rendered
as in "Kylie is a mole".

re: 143

Can be used in a similar way in Scots.

'Wife' or 'wifey' can just mean an older woman, but it often has the same negative connotations as the Dutch.

"Don't be such a hackett-faced greetin' auld wife"

etc

I had a thesaurus as a kid that listed as a synonym for "trollop", "Mrs. Warren." (from the Shaw play, not that I knew that at the time). Dr. Oops and I still on occasion call each other "Mrs. Warren".

Wijf (note spelling) is actually not that offensive anymore here; it's often used the same way "my lover" or "my bird" is used in the west country. Annoying yes, offensive, no.
