Dr. Laura Schlessinger has never been one to shrink from controversy, and she leaped headlong into one on Monday when she said that if a husband cheats, his wife may share some of the blame.

Original DVD cover.

“When the wife does not focus in on the needs and the feelings, sexually, personally, to make him feel like a man, to make him feel like a success, to make him feel like her hero, he’s very susceptible to the charm of some other woman making him feel what he needs,” the popular psychologist and radio personality said.

More commonly known as just “Dr. Laura,” Schlessinger made the remarks while participating in one of several panel discussions on TODAY dealing with the breaking news that New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer had been connected to a high-priced prostitution ring.


“The point is, what he’s done is wrong. The point is, what she’s done is wrong,” she said. “I have kept marriages together after affairs because I have reminded women that you have the power to turn this around.


“I would challenge the wife to find out what kind of wife she’s being,” she said. “Is she being supportive and approving and loving? Is she being sexually intimate and affectionate? Is she making him feel like he’s her man? If she’s not doing that, then she’s contributing to his wrong choice.”

And Dr. Laura knows all about ending affairs! From Salem News:

Dr. Laura Schlessinger, right wing conservative radio host, is known for promoting family values. She is estranged from her mother, opposes birth control, has had her tubes tied. She espouses saving oneself for marriage, and admits to having had sex before she was married. She opposes adultery, but has committed adultery while she was married, and has slept with a married man. She opposes divorce, but she is divorced and remarried, and has posed for nude photos which are available online.

You remember her mother, don’t you? The mother who died in her home not far from her daughter’s radio station in 2002 and was not found for several months. Family values, indeed.
Oh, and Laura is a wonderful mother in her own right! From The Salt Lake Tribune:

The soldier son of talk radio relationship counselor Laura Schlessinger is under investigation for a graphic personal Web page that one Army official has called “repulsive.”
The MySpace page, publicly available until Friday when it disappeared from the Internet, included cartoon depictions of rape, murder, torture and child molestation; photographs of soldiers with guns in their mouths; a photograph of a bound and blindfolded detainee captioned “My Sweet Little Habib”; accounts of illicit drug use; and a blog entry headlined by a series of obscenities and racial epithets.
The site is credited to and includes many photographs of Deryk Schlessinger, the 21-year-old son of the talk radio personality known simply as Dr. Laura. Broadcast locally on 570 KNRS, “Family Values Talk Radio,” the former family counselor spends three hours daily taking calls and offering advice on morals, ethics and values.

By the way, her Ph.D. is in physiology, not psychology.

P. S. I bet New Jersey still hates her!

  1. Sigh … you know, let her have it. She’s as bad a hypocrite as I can imagine, and I’m fine with seeing her thrown under the bus.

    Her asinine statements about women taking care of their husbands contrast with her individual-responsibility rhetoric. Frankly … she wants to be accepted by a certain market of (male) right-wingers.

    I’m thinking that Hannity, et. al. would deem it appropriate for Dr. Laura and Ann Coulter to engage in a little nude mud wrestling.

    … and sorry about the visual.

    … Really sorry. :shudder:

    after i poke my own eyes out, i am going to feel my way around until i find you, and i am gonna slap you for even suggesting that visual! i don’t know if i can ever look at mud again without gagging. 😉

    Do you want the good news first or the bad news first? OK, the bad news. I haven’t had time to enjoy and learn from your posts for several days. The good news is that it’s because my bathroom is being redone!

    Dr. Gomorrah, like so many other neocons, lives her life by the right-wing morality cliche, “Do as I say, not as I do.”

    congrats on the new bathroom, nightowl! i hope it goes better than my renovation did. i just realized yesterday that the new socket doesn’t work. i wonder how many months it will take for the contractor to come back and fix it.
    dr. gomorrah, i like that. too bad they killed saddam, they would have been a good pair! 😆 she is such a piece of trash. seriously, i despise her. she says whatever it is that will get her some attention and make her some money. she has no true convictions. just the fact that she calls herself dr. laura when she has no degree in psychology tells you what a phony she is.

    You should read the essay on prostitution “A She-Savior” by the well-known Russian author Mikhail Armalinsky. It was published in Moscow edition of his Selected Works http://www.mipco.com/english/introVozn.html
    I will be happy to send you the text as attachment or here is the link: http://www.mipco.com/english/SheSavior.html

    The main idea of the essay “A She-Savior” is that the legalization of prostitution must be based on a return of its divine, sacred character, so that prostitution will be considered the most honorable profession, the one closest to God, the holiest.

    thank you, davbaye. that sounds really interesting. i bookmarked it, and i will definitely read it.
    i take a more earthly view of prostitution. i think a person own her/his own body and s/he should be able to do with it what one wishes as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else. prostitution should be legal, taxed, and regulated. in fact, if you take away the mystique of it, maybe a lot fewer people will feel the need to hire those services.
    welcome to the raisin, davbaye! 😀
