Good grief, I'm almost 50 and I wouldn't have been caught dead in Converse when i was 20. It was heels for me.
But I've drank Absolut for 30 years. Big deal!
My humble opinion on this is that the LA Times must have had a slow news day, or she is friends with someone. The article jumped around a lot but to me she still comes off as a brat.
I think the main reason everyone went nuts was because of her attitude which apparently has not improved. She bashes people over being mean and vindictive, then out the other side of her mouth she calls all of us "stepford wives" which is mean and vindictive. Personally this is a done deal for me. It's simple. She cheated, she got caught, she was nasty about it and is still being nasty. Let's not give her any more ammo though. Let her bury herself as my Grandmother used to say.
