As I watch all of the tabloid coverage of the Jon & Kate + 8 split and reflect on other public relationships that face constant speculation and scrutiny (all the way back to the antics of JFK) I am thankful that I do not have to face the demise of marriage being front page news or water cooler fodder. I am thankful that I don't have to wake up to see Matt Lauer dissecting the end of my marriage or see magazine articles about who did what to whom.
Admittedly there is a tiny part of me that would like to scream from the rooftops about my what MS2BX did...I am thankful I can go through this in my own private way.
I can't imagine the pain for those public relationships that were fostered out of love to see the tabloid covers, the CNN Breaking News alerts or the Perez Hilton coverage. It would have to tear you apart. So even if I think the abundance of disposable income would be nice - I am thankful to be Charlotte Q. Citizen.
