You finally admit to cheating on your wife… but only because someone tried to extort you!
What’s more pathetic: that David Boreanaz, 40, cheated on his wife Jaime Bergman, or that he would never have admitted to it if he hadn’t felt like he was being “blackmailed” by his mistress? “Our marriage has been tainted with my infidelities,” David finally confessed to People, after learning that his mistress was planning on shopping her story to the media. This sounds a lot like what happened to David Letterman last year when he confessed on-air to sleeping with Late Show employees, after a CBS producer threatened to sell David’s story to the media if he didn’t fork over $2 million.
Reports of David’s cheating first surfaced in a Star magazine story from Oct. 2009. The mag linked David to — wait for it — Tiger Woods‘ mistress #1 Rachel Uchitel! As of now, David is refusing to release the name of his mistress, though many people are speculating that it is Rachel.
“I just want to be open and honest,” David Boreanaz says. “I was irresponsible.”
Yes, David, you were irresponsible! But don’t think that your apology is going to magically make things all better. It’s one thing to come out and admit to infidelity on your own, but it’s so obvious that you felt forced into doing so. If this woman agreed to stay quiet, would you NEVER tell your loving wife what you did? Would you let us all continue to think you were a faithful and devoted husband?
“We’re working on our marriage,” he says. “We’re working on repairing what has been damaged so badly.”
