I admit to being no fun Sheila. It's a gift. But I don't mind if others want to keep the topic alive for the sake of the newbies. I just didn't want Fearless Monkey to think she was a lone voice in the wilderness.
Fearless Monkey had the misconception that this particular bit of gossip is based on tabloids, which is incorrect. Though I will admit the tabloids have been fairly accurate regarding Dean the past several years (knocking up Samantha, chasing Esther Canadas, custody battle). Truthfully, there wasn't all that much tabloid gossip about Dean and Teri having an affair unless "waiting in the wings" could be called an affair
As for the longevity of the gossip, it has a romantic appeal that a Playboy Playmate just doesn't have. For women anyway
Who knows, Teri may have found someone worth leaving her crappy marriage for. Someone we never saw or heard of before. Dean may have purchased Stately Cain Manor in Ibiza to impress a Spanish model who is in the tabloids in Europe right now because she's allegedly one of many women who had an affair with super soccer player David Beckham.
The point is, when we get some new gossip about either of them, we'll have some fun with it for as long as it lasts. Unfortunately, Dean and Teri are making a point of not being seen with dates and Teri's divorce has drug out more than a year now. So, until we get new gossip, we're stuck with the old stuff
