Cheaters still never win.

Monday, March 31, 2008
Remember the movie Waiting to Exhale? When Angela Bassett's character finds out her husband is cheating on her and in love with another woman? She grabs all of his expensive suits, shoes and anything she can grab, throws it in his car and lights it on fire. Then, she stands there with her a hair a mess and lights a cigarette. Well, most women fantasize about seeking revenge on a cheating ex but don't actually come through with it. Or, we just simply through out all memorabilia that reminds us of this person. Typical. No big deal.

Check out this article from CNN today. It summarizes a woman's initial desire to get even, but ultimately most of us don't go through with it. Although, there are some crazy bitches out there that do. Here's an excerpt from the article from a girl I suggest you don't mess with or date.

"I don't think there's anything dignified about behavior like that. And you can't take back that kind of thing," Holmes says.
Some, however, find it empowering: When Mylissa, 30, of Reno, Nevada, learned that her boyfriend had been unfaithful, she rigged his phone so calls would forward to a gay-sex hotline. She cut out the pockets of his pants. Then she sneaked into his house on a hot night, turned his radiator all the way up and super-glued the switch.
"It's OK to break up. But it's not OK to string someone along and lie," said Mylissa. "I think my ex knew he deserved everything I did to him," she argued.

First off, "Waiting to Exhale" is by far one of my favorite movies. I just watched it on the flight to Germany too. That scene is just absolute genius. God, I would love to have the opportunity! LOL

BTW, I have taken revenge on exes. There's not a feeling like it in the world. I know. I'm a bitch. :-)

I must be a bitch because I hacked into my ex's email...both personal, myspace and work...and changed his status to gay, reset his hotmail password and fwd'd horrible pictures of him to his work buddies. He still doesn't know it was me....well DUH! Of course it's me...don't cheat...that's my motto...because if you do, it's all fair game. Alls fair in love and war/revenge...haha

...yikes.

So on the other side of the things - what do girls think is proper response for a guy who finds his gal cheating? Seems the common theme is linking the ex to gay hotlines and sites.

Little Bull -- I'm glad I'm not a man.

Wow. I always wished I could be the crazy ex. Busting out windows and tearing up clothes. But it's just not in me. But every single ex that I have ever had has apologized and expressed that they wish I would give them a second chance. That's revenge enough for me, and I didn't even have to do anything.
