Okay, this post is devoted to some celebrity news; I say celebrity, but those involved are “major” in my book, but hey, to each his or her own. Today “news” broke regarding an email that Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon apparently sent out an email to her husband’s friends and co-workers at the Creative Artists Agency (CAA). According to this email, Garcelle says that her husband Michael Nilon has been having an affair with some woman for 5 years. The two have only been married for about 9 years! Now, of course the most important aspect of this story is that this man was cheating on his wife. But looking at it from a different view, I think that Garcelle’s approach to handling this was a bad idea. Why? Well first, why send it to his friends and colleagues? The way I see it, most of those same people already knew he was having an affair. I mean really, five years? Folks were already talking about around the water cooler. Second, what sense does it make to put such scandalous information out in the open and then not want to speak to the media? Now that she let the cat out of the bag, she made this statement to USMagazine.com:
“My focus at this time is on my kids and healing the pain. There will be no further comment.”
Why make the comment in the first place? Now you don’t want to talk about it? Either someone was in need of attention, and by attention I mean attaching one’s situation to the many celebrities going through this same situation (i.e. Tiger Woods and Jesse James), or someone realizes that it wasn’t the best idea to throw personal business out there for media consumption. That said, I hope that Garcelle is able to make it through this, shielding their children from the stupidity of their father. I just think that this was a bad move.
