When does the Lifetime movie come out?

From Courthouse News Service:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (CN) – South Carolina First Lady Jenny Sanford has filed for divorce, 7 months after her husband confessed to an affair with an Argentine mistress, and just days after a state House judiciary panel voted to censure, but not impeach, her husband, Gov. Mark Sanford.

Mrs. Sanford said in a statement, “As so many of us know, the dissolution of any marriage is a sad and painful process. Because Mark and I are public figures, we have naturally had less privacy with which to deal with our difficulties than do other couples. Indeed, I know it will soon become known, so I choose to release this brief notice that I am now filing for divorce.”

Poor Jenny, I bet she loves her privacy, especially when it comes to really personal things like this. And I bet she’ll tell us all about it in that book she’s writing about her husband’s affair.

Looks like Sparky Marky Mark hasn’t cleaned out the fridge in quite a while.

The Sanfords have been separated since shortly after the governor’s 5-day disappearance in June for what turned out to be a rendezvous with the woman identified as his mistress, Maria [Belen] Chapur.

Sanford confessed to the affair upon his return from South America, then appeared to compound his problems at home by continually talking about it, at one point describing Chapur as his “soul mate.”

Since then, Ms. Sanford has been living at the family’s beach house on Sullivan’s Island, S.C., with her four sons, while the governor stayed in Columbia. All the while both maintained publicly that they wanted to salvage their marriage.

Gov. Sanford said as much to reporters on Thursday.

But Mrs. Sanford said her decision to file for divorce came “after many unsuccessful efforts at reconciliation.”

In his own statement, Gov. Sanford described the first lady as a great person and a remarkable wife and mother.

  1. I’m sure life has gotten much more lucrative for her since the shit hit the fan. Lucky her.

    • she doesn’t need the money (though enough is never enough when it comes to rethugs). i think she’s got a political future in mind.

      • I don’t know … have you heard the way Reps talk about Jeri Ryan?

        Sanford was a somebody once. The old boys’ club will blame her, not him, for his collapse.

        • no, they’ll blame him, because she was the one with all the money when they got married. he wasn’t poor, but she was the heiress to the skil corp. fortune.

  2. “Since then, Ms. Sanford has been living at the family’s beach house on Sullivan’s Island, S.C.”

    Oh, very nice. I’ve been there, collecting snails. It’s just outside of Charleston and a very pretty beach community.

    BTW, if she gets the house in the divorce, she should be someone would would listen to Lindsey-poo about Global Warming. Otherwise, she or her children might lose that beach house to rising sea levels later this century.

    • she’ll get everything. her uncle and grandfather headed a huge law firm. she’s not exactly a retiring southern belle. she called all the shots for the last year, and i doubt she’s about to give up control now. he’s such a shmuck, he might agree to give her everything so he can move down to argentina to be with his soulmate.

  3. I have also been there, very nice place.

  4. Ms. Jenny told BaBa Wawa she has absolutely no desire to be in politics. Maybe she does not want to swim with the sharks, but she will take their assets!

    I think she’d be happy to take the bastard to the cleaners to the extent he WILL be wandering the Appalachian trail!

    • if she didn’t want to be in politics, and she already has her book deal, then why doesn’t she just shut up and go away? she doesn’t have to defend herself. if she doesn’t want to be in politics, then what is she doing? she doesn’t need the money, and her soon-to-be-ex has already been ridiculed by the press. she’s got something on her agenda, and i still think it’s politics. time will tell.

    Why did Jenny blames gays for her husband’s infidelity? She should serious look at the mirror instead of outsourcing her intra and interpersonal deficiencies with hubby.


    • the story about jenny sanford blaming gays for her husband’s infidelity was from a satirical site. she didn’t say it. you might want to amend your post at your site.

    Hey ass wipe, if Helen Wheels is gonna quite the blog effort, how about we insist she delete her eyesore? We try to keep the internet tidy and her site, as well as yours, is just ruining property values all over center-right America.

    BTW. I let Larry Blagg, Senior Vice President of Marketing for the California Raisin Marketing Board know that you’re infringing on their copyrighted material. Expect to hear from their legal team soon.

    Cj must be short for circle jerk.
    I’m sure the raisin advisory board will be thrilled this douchebag is patrolling the net, looking for perpetrators on their behalf.

    • no, zippy, it’s short for KARL THE DICKLESS TROLL POSING AS Helen Wheels AND FOOLING NOBODY. he’s such a sad excuse for a human being. he has nothing better to do but play with himself and leave nasty little comments on the internets.

  8. meanwhile, sanford still has a job, as does vitter
    but not spitzer…

    makes perfect sense in a country that is literally falling off the deepend

    • amazing, isn’t it? of the 3, the only one worth anything is spitzer. he’s a brilliant man, and new york could use him. yes, he’s a hypocrite, but at least he’s smart enough to admit it.

  9. Wow! Do the Raisin Police monitor this site? Hope they don’t find out about me & sis moving family goods from Cal last year with moms prized possesion, a 3 foot tall girl California raisin riding in the truck cab all the way to Texas sometimes stopping to take humiliating photos by landmarks. We crossed several state lines and may be in violation of the “Raisin Act”.

    • this has to be a short reply, jerry. i’m in hiding! don’t tell me any more. i don’t want to have to lie to the raisin authorities if they catch and interrogate me! 😯

    I found this little golden nugget at Daily KO’s and thought it would fit your post very nicely;

    “While 45% of all South Carolina voters want [Mark] Sanford to resign, only 33% of the ‘moral and family values’ crowd wants him to.

    Which led PPP’s Tom Jensen to write:

    Where do you think these folks stood on impeaching Bill Clinton? It’s clear there is forgiveness for politicians who cheat on their wives and abuse state resources to do so- as long as they’re Republicans. ”

    Truer words have never been spoken(or written).

    • hi mary b,
      forgive me for not answering sooner. i’m a little under the weather (several feet under).

      the family values folks are nothing but a bunch of hypocrites. they always have excuses for themselves and no empathy for anyone outside of their cult.
