Sad News, but straight from his own mouth...

I avoid gossip completely on this site, so things that came out months ago were never posted here, no matter how many times they were discussed or where. But when stars comment on their personal lives directly, it deserves to be mentioned here.

David Boreanaz admits his indiscretions

Please keep the comments civil.

Thank you, Yvanne, for the tip.

David Boreanaz I have lost all respect for you!!!!

Lisa said...

how on earth can this be a surprise to anyone?

Nicole said...

This should only affect David Boreanaz and his family. He hasn't lost my respect because I don't know him or his family dynamics. He's not the first nor the last man that has/will cheat!


I have dislike for these women who sleep with married men and then feel the need to get money from it. When did it become okay to make money/fame from bagging a married man?

Anonymous said...

I completely understand that people make mistakes, but this seriously breaks my heart.

I didn't want to believe the rumors that were circulating last Fall, and had even managed to start ignoring them. :(

Anonymous said...

Nicole - I totally agree with you. Thank you. :)

CupcakeBean said...

I am extremely disappointed. I was really hoping these rumors were untrue. We all make mistakes, but infidelity really bothers me, especially when there are children involved. I just hope they are able to work things out.

Lisa said...

DB has invited comments on his life by going public with his personal business.
I feel for his children and his wife.

Anonymous said...

i am so crushed! i really looked up to him and his family. It's just really sad, and i really hope they can work it out.

Anonymous said...

infidelity really bothers me too. it's, in my opinion, the worst thing ever. but i feel the need to be both Brennan and Booth here.
Booth: John chapter 8, verse 7. period.
Brennan: Humans aren't monogamous by nature.
at least one in every five people you have met have had an affair of one kind or another, and the heart wants what the heart wants, whether the heart's the one doing the thinking or the c*&k. he's a man, just like any other man.

Anonymous said...

Well...I feel sad for his family but the bottom line is none of us know David Boreanaz, we know Seeley Booth. I'm just hoping that this news doesn't sneak into my brain when I'm watching Booth!

it already did...

Tia said...

I have to give him a little credit here. The man made a mistake and he is now trying to make up for the mistake. I won't judge him for it. Many men in this world do it all the time but don't really care who they hurt. At least he was kind enough to fess up and try to patch things up with his wife. You know David is only human..prone to mistakes.

Rolywa said...

I just need to keep reminding myself that I watch this show because Seeley Booth is my ideal man and NOT David Boreanaz.

honestly don't understand cheating, but the fact is that people do it and most of it we won't ever know about. I hope that no matter what him and his wife decide, they both are left HAPPY.

Sarah said...

The only thing that ticks me off is that there was that US Magazine article last year about it, then the Tiger Woods email about it, and NOW someone wants money so he's talking about it? It's classic crisis PR tactics in action, especially that it's in People. People is the like the safest place to break news like this and they spin things safely.

Also, I'd like to thank his mistress for giving women such a bad name. Yes, it's bad enough that he cheated, but she knew full well he was married. The deed was done and now payment is being demanded? That, my friends is the oldest profession in the book and it's just sad that it's moved from street corners to court rooms. These kind of lawsuits shouldn't even be allowed.

As far as Bones is concerned, I love Booth. DB portrays him but isn't him. He's just a really good actor and it's not going to affect my viewing of the show.

Anonymous said...

DB isn't Booth. I've loved every character he's ever played, but have never been particularly impressed with DB as person. He has always come across as a bit arrogant for my taste. His confession doesn't surprise me in the least, especially considering rumors of his infidelity have circulated since his first marriage during BTVS (the SMG rumors were pretty persistent).

My one wish is that his children don't suffer for this.

Anyhow, I loved Angel and I love Booth. That's enough for me.

Sarah (#2) said...

I agree with Nicole! It's a personal matter!

I hope that he and his wife and their children make it through the media storm and find a way to be happy -- whether that's together or apart.

Kate said...

My understanding based on his comments is that it wasn't the woman in the US magazine that he cheated with. After all, she already was named and he said he was trying to avoid being extorted.

I don't cheat, I don't like those who do, but in the end, my opinion doesn't matter. It's a matter between the husband and wife. If they can work it out and stay together, I assume it's for reason. If she divorces him and takes him to the cleaners, then I assume it's for a good reason too.

Actors are just that, I would never recommend them as role models no matter how saintly they *appear*.

Kate said...

P.S. TMZ has more info--says it was a short-term fling only "2 or 3 times."

catnapping said...

damn, i thought he had more self-respect.

well, it's their life. only trailer trash will waste any time gossiping about it.

rachel said...

this is so sad. i hope his family can work through this.

iheartbooth said...

Very disappointing! Of course, women cheat too, but what is it with men (esp. celebrities) with big egos that cannot be satisfied!I mean for Chrissake Jamie was a playboy model! Moreover, since he was being blackmailed, he was essentially paying for it!

My condolences to his family. I have to say that, as with Jesse James and Sandra Bullock, I hope she leaves or like gets him microchipped or something.

Cheryl said...

"There, but for the grace of God, go I." Obviously, I'm not condoning infidelity but I've come to realise that any sin out there that I could condemn someone for doing given the right circumstances I could be doing it too. Was it wrong? Yes. Did he violate his vows & possibly endanger his kids? Yes. But he also refused to be blackmailed by whatever-her-name-is (u go boy!). And he's working on fixing his marriage. And really? That's what matters. We all do regrettable things...it's how u handle it after u realise ur mistake that speaks volumes abt ur character. I personally hope they can resolve this & build an even stronger marriage & family. As for DB? He's still an _amazing_ actor. And Bones? Still pwns me!

Lisa said...

would DB have come out with his confession if he hadnt been threatened with exposure ?
No, I dont think so.

Sade said...

I don't understand why everyone gets so worked up about what celebrities do or don't do in their personal lives. Whether it's Tiger Woods, Jesse James, or in this case David Boreanz; people make mistakes. As fans it's really none of our business and I don't think we have the right to pass judgment.

I see David Boreanz as I always have, a great actor. You can't lose respect for someone you didn't even know in the first place.

Stephanie said...

Exactly, Lisa. He gets no credit from me for confessing. He just wanted to beat the girl to the media because it would've come out either way.

I can't say I'm at all surprised, but I still think it's disgusting and disappointing. I've never particularly been a fan of David's, so I just hope his cheating doesn't hurt Bones or color my view of Booth too much.

Lisa said...

I agree.
we dont know him and we cant judge him but it is just unrealistic to be totally surprised by this.
He has been caught out and now feels he has to make amends; it shouldnt affect the way people feel about the program because DB is not SB.

Cheryl said...

I generally don't see the need for a public confession. He's married to _Jaime_, not the public. 'fess up to his wife, fix the marriage The End. I do support him not allowing this woman to hold it over his head tho.

Lisa said...

.......seems as though the Gypsy Curse that haunted Angel has been well and truly removed.

Anonymous said...

First, David Duchovny, and now David Boreanaz.

I don't see the celebrities as role models, but thier infidility really bothers me.

I love Bones; I hope this show won't be the victim of collateral damage.

Tara said...

I really feel sorry for actors... How terrible that the worst thing you have ever done be made public like this?

I try to avoid any information on actors. I find it can be distracting when watching shows or movies.

Anonymous said...

I am with Lisa on this matter.
How can anyone be surprised by these news. Especially when you are out in the open like this, being an actor, there are probably too many "offerings". And on one of these days,.... Well, good move to talk about it like this.
And, he is only a guy,...

liz said...

plural.
infidelitIES.
i think this suggests it is more than one woman. as people say, and i think he himself has said, he has done this in the past (with his first wife, highschool sweetheart) and i believe he even had suggested that he had learned from it (in an interview about an indie Canadian film in which he starred as a cheating husband). since this is a repeat, it suggests that he thought he had "learned from it"... well, I guess not so much... and while I admit to loving the chemistry he and ED had in interviews/public during the first 3+ years, it was probably not such a great thing for his wife and marriage. Emotional Affair, and all that.
I was under the impression he realized the toll this took on his marriage, and that was why he was toning it way down, on purpose.

Just goes to remind us all: fantasy/TV is simply that.
There are ALOT of men out there, who are more like Seeley than like DB, and we need to celebrate them more, even though they don't look like DB all the time...

and of course, we gotta forgive folks their failings, unless we somehow think we don't have any.

Anonymous said...

Oh get real people! Women must be throwing themselves at him every day. Don't you think actors in that situation might lose a little grip on reality and think the usual rules don't apply to them. It's a power/ego thing - look at Clinton.

Even before the Rachel Uchitel story I would not have been surprised to read this but it's sad when the image he is happy to put out of a committed family man is a sham. That said, I still love Bones and I still think he is a gorgeous man

Wendy said...

"There are ALOT of men out there, who are more like Seeley than like DB, and we need to celebrate them more, even though they don't look like DB all the time... "

Amen =)

Courtney said...

The need for the public flogging of these intimate details of celebrities' lives is just disgusting.

Yup - I too believe the public would have been spared this personal information had he not been pretty much forced to divulge this to the world - the only person I feel for in this situation is his wife - his kids are too young to know what's what just yet. But, his wife has to face all this public dissection now.

I always thought the rumors last Fall were true - something about his total silence on the matter - and, for some reason, in my mind I associated his weight loss to having gone through a particularly anxious, stressful time. This coupled with his wife's difficult pregnancy could be the reason.

I was given great advice about a zillion years ago when I got caught up with someone in the music world who was well known and wrote really insightful, sensitive lyrics - however, he himself turned out to be not worth a moment of my time. Someone told me - "always try to separate the art from the artist."

Since then, I do my best to just enjoy the talent someone brings - such as DB's ability to make Booth such a terrific character with many layers.

I just hope that the flood gates don't open and a bunch of women come pouring out as they did with Tiger Woods and Bullock's husband.

Lena said...

Once a cheater always a cheater. Truer words were never spoken. If Tiger Woods and Jesse James who are both unattractive, cheated with numerous women, just think what a guy who looks like this has done. There probably has been hundreds of women. I hope his wife can work thru this, but one thing I am sure about HE CAN NEVER BE TRUSTED AGAIN!!!

Anonymous said...

IMO, the problem is that society tends to idolize celebrities, and some think that they "know" these people. He/she is nice, kind, a family person, honest, sincere, not kind--a jerk--etc. We don't know these actors at all. We do need to separate the art from the artist--great quote Courtney. I don't have any particular respect or disrespect for actors as PEOPLE. I have respect for their talents, etc. They are actors, so how they act, whether it is in the publice eye or not, could all be pretend. Also, they have publicists that try to control the image that is presented to the public. I think it is very tragic anytime ANY married person commits adultery, whether it is a celebrity or a friend, especially when kids are involved. Also, celebrities, for better or worse, are in the public eye. To some extent they do give up some privacy to do what they do. I am not saying that the public is entitled to know everything about their lives, either, but it is what it is. By the way, anytime someone cheats, they take the chance of exposure. You don't have to be famous. A friend's husband cheated on her once, and the "mistress" contacted the wife and told her when the guy tried to end it. Finally, my one judgemental comment is that my take from reading the article is that the reason DB came forward is that he wasn't going to pay to buy her silence. I'm not sure we need to admire him for that. Again, probably a publicist is handling damage control. It probably is the best way to handle it. Hope he doesn't have to go to rehab--ugh!

This news will only fortify the long standing rumors about DB and ED. From my perspective, it looks like these two are very much in love with each other. Sad but true.

Dijea said...

He did say infidelities, which is disappointing. But I think the ridiculousness of the everyday public to know the private lives of celebrities is kind of ridiculous. I also think the women who think they need a payoff to keep quiet are the scum of the earth. They look worse than the cheater - but then there are a few who want publicity no matter what. As my mother told me, that's the wrong way to be popular.

There are plenty of people walking around everyday that don't make movies, or TV shows or music or play sports that cheat on their wives, that are secretly gay or have some funky hang up. We don't hear about them because they aren't "special". Maybe if the world stopped begging for trash we wouldn't see so much of it.

I hope that DB can repair his marriage - or at least maintain a good relationship with the mother of his children. They are the ones who suffer in these situations.

It won't keep me from watching Bones though - his personal business is his not mine. It's too someone feels the need to shout it from the rooftops. And between you and me, Gloria Allred is a disgusting woman if she thinks this is a good way to make money.

Anonymous said...

It will be rude but I have to tell - please forgive me - that I don't like Jaime, she is not a beautiful woman. She doesn't suit him, no marvel then if it happened.
Still I think he is a good, loving father, who loves his family, and a gorgeous actor, I love him, I don't care what he did/do in his personal life. I'll see everything he is in.

Sarah said...

This is why I avoid news/interviews about the actors who play characters I so deeply care for. :-/

Anonymous said...

Truth is, David and Emily's off screen chemistry would not exist if he wasn't such an outrageous flirt. Sadly this has now caught up with him. Leaving his family to one side - I hope they manage to sort it all out - I think it is a shame for the show because this will have an impact on David and Emily too. I am pretty certain he will have to tone it down way more now - things that worked under the heading of "it's all a bit of fun, he's a happily married man" won't work anymore now. Hopefully their developing on screen relationship will more than make up for loss of their off screen antics!

aardvark508 said...

For me the sad part is that those scenes from past Bones that I loved so much where Booth took the moral high road on NEVER cheating on woman he was with and the old fashioned notions of responsibility with the father of severeal illegitimate children now seem a bit slimey and tainted. It may be irrational, but, for me, it taints both the past and what will happen in the future. He has deminished the franchise with his behavior. I realize actors are professional phonies but I do not like to be reminded of that by the reality of their personal behavior. People who make their living out of selling perceptions of reality need to be careful how they are perceived. The two, fairly or unfairly, get mixed in people's mind.

Courtney said...

I'm pretty certain that their off-screen "antics" are all very carefully cultivated by the network's and the show's P.R. people - as a way to get viewers hooked on their relationship -

I don't doubt DB and ED are friends - but, all that other stuff? Just as acted out as DB's own personal public image of the happy, solid, devoted family man.

None of this stuff is real - well, mostly none of it.

The entire business is built on creating stories and fantasy - they are pros at making people believe what they are selling.

The stuff between DB and ED is just as much a part of that PR machine as are the promos for the show, interviews they all do, the silly spin they do when the end of season is coming up, etc.

The timing is interesting on this too - the filming of the finale and the season is done so he doesn't have to deal with his co-stars right now and yet it is before the finale airs...color me not surprised by timing. But, then I grew up in L.A. - nothing is real in this business.

A perfect example is the recent announcement of the baby Sandra Bullock adopted - the adoption had taken place prior to the exposure of all of her husband's affairs. Yet, we don't learn about it until her whole life imploded. People were starting to wonder what she knew about her husband's fascination with nazism - and suddenly, a cute baby appears.

Yup - I'm a cynic.

Anonymous said...

@anon 11:33, I agree with you 100%. If and when they do interviews together, you will NEVER see his FLIRTY side again. DB will always be looked at differently now. Boreanaz is too handsome for his own good. I will bet there have been tons of women in his nine years of marriage. I just hope Emily wasn't one of them.

Stephanie said...

Oh god, I hope Emily doesn't get dragged too far into this. I don't think people really believe there's anything between them, though. A small portion of the Demily fanbase might, but if most people really thought there was anything going on, David and Emily would've been tabloid targets for years, and they haven't been. I'm not sure I've ever seen Emily in a tabloid, period.

And if you watch their interviews, David's the one to start the flirting or try to kiss her. She always uncomfortably giggles and stops him. I'm not sure how staged all that is/was, but I don't think Emily has anything to do with this. She probably found out about it when we did.

I actually think the timing would've been better had it happened AFTER the finale aired. There may be a ratings boost because he's been in the news, but this is bad press, and the first several comments I saw about this story were from people saying they'd never watch David or Bones again, so I think there's just as much potential for Bones to take a ratings hit because of his cheating. I guess we'll see on Friday.

Shep said...

Oh, God. I've never, ever believed that he was perfect, nobody's a saint. Looking the way he does - definitely not a saint! But I had hoped that the rumours weren't true and now it's just...dissapointing.

I still think that he's a great actor and a good person - many people have affairs due to whatever circumstances (we have no way of knowing what his motivations were and we don't really have the right to) and couples get through it. Nonetheless it's still sad.

They're both at fault here - why sleep with a married man and why cheat on your wife especially when you have a family?! I don't understand cheating either (except possibly in special circumstances e.g.one partner is abusive or something and so the other has to find some comanionship etc...) and I loathe the idea of it. Why can't people just keep it in their pants!

I can understand why he spoke out - the woman pretty much blackmailed him and media outlets probably would have turned it into a Tiger Woods-like scandal which would not have helped anything (except sell magazines). I only hope now that other celebrity gossip sites and magazines don't do just that, now.

I'm not going to pretend I haven't lost some respect for him. Because I have. A little. As it would be for anyone who I knew had cheated, and they'd just have to work hard to earn that respect back from me. Which is what David will have to do for his fans, friends and most of all, his family.

I just really feel sorry for Jaime and their children and I do hope they get through it.

Now I'm just feeling depressed.

alexandrael said...

Well the only thing that angers me is that his wife was pregnant and she had a difficult pregnancy from what we've been told...As for this woman well she earns a living from it and no one made him sleep with her...It was his own choice ultimately cause being guy doesn't mean you are allowed to cheat as some believe!I only hope that this doesn't affect his children and well even if it's selfish Bones...

Lawrence said...

Two things:

Infidelity is normal in the entertainment business and spouses are usually aware. Get off your high horses, your opinions mean squat.

So far the media I've seen are all using the headline "Buffy star caught cheating". I have yet to see mention of Bones in main stream media headlines.

Consistent Thursday performer yet the actors get referred to by past shows. Not that this is a desirable context, but after 5 years the term "Bones star" is a valid title for at least 6 actors.

Oh well, the Buffy gang is used to questionable headlines.

Stephanie said...

Most of the headlines I've seen specifically have David's name in them and then once you click into the story, it says "Bones star David Boreanaz." I haven't seen him referred to as "Buffy star" with this story yet.

And okay, cheating may be common and "normal," but does that make it okay? I don't think so. If Jamie wants to stay with him, that's her business, but that fact or the frequency of celebrity infidelity stories doesn't make what David did any less wrong.

aardvark508 said...

The comment from Courtney above concerning the orchestration of actors and entertainment fantasies triggered the following thought.

How much of what happened in the last three minutes of episode 100 was in response to the inevitable exposure of his infidelities? Think of how awkward a "yes, I will take the chance" answer from Bones would have felt to the viewers today. I suspect actors are practically, if not legally, obligated to give their show's producers a heads up when something like this is in the offing.

Yssel said...

Not surprised, I have always assumed he was not a saint, and that all the marketing about his image as a true family man was all fake. So, nothing is changing for me.
Actually, even if he was pushed to this, I prefer honest words than plenty of photos with fakes smiles and wedding bands.
So, honest David is always more welcome than a fake image of him.
I appreciate him as an actor, and I always will.

I just hope Bones or Emily are not going to suffer from his behaviours.
I think Emily is not involved at all, in any way. She would not need the money, and she would not behave so "buddy-buddy" with him in fron of the cameras. I agree with someone who said it's just work.
And honestly, as a fan, that's the only thing I care about: their work.

I hope the storm is passing soon, for all of them.

Anonymous said...

This story is just starting to get legs. The reporters who are covering this are like piranha's and will not give up until the public knows everything about DB and his straying ways. If DB and ED were involved in a sexual relationship, we are going to find out about it. They have both said that they spend all of the 15 hrs working they are together. I know people are going to say that Emily would never do that, but most of us thought that DB was a devoted husband also. Never say Never!!!

Shep said...

I hope not! But looking at the fierce coverage of all the celebrity infidelity recently, it seems pretty inevitable. One of the reasons I hate the cheating 'scandals' is because of the way the media latch onto them like rabid dogs and seek to expose every single thing about what happens. It's not fair on the people involved to have every second reported to the public. David has every right to have wanted to keep this private - it's his life, his (extremely stupid, idiotic) mistake, not ours.

His work is the most important thing to me, too. But it is dissapointing to me. I also feel like a bit of a dum-dum for going 'awwww' whenever he mentioned his family life.

Anonymous said...

I cannot believe David cheated! And moreover I cannot believe it wasn't with Emily. I just hope his wife and children are going to overcome this situation.

Wendy said...

I'm starting to see it appear on multiple news sites now. Sometimes he's a "Bones" star and sometimes he's a "Buffy" star.

Shep said...

Yeah, it's on Yahoo now! Ugh!

I regret reading that article, actually. It says he and Jaime met at a party at the Playboy mansion. I've known about him going there (hence - not a saint) but I always tried to maintain to myself that they met after she left the Mansion, or something. I absolutely loathe Playboy! I can't judge Jaime, because I don't know anything about her and she may well be a very nice person,(and she's probably going through a tough time now) but Playboy itself just sickens me!

Emilie79fr said...

It always amuses me how much American people and, above all, American media, take all these cheating stuff so seriously. Whatever the story is, I don't understand how private matters can possibly affect so many people and even threaten the carriers of those who are involved. Does the fact that Tiger Woods cheated on his wife makes him a bad golf player? And did he deserve to lose his sponsors? Does the fact that Bill Clinton cheated on his wife made him a bad president? Does the fact that David Boreanaz cheated on his wife makes him a bad actor? Of course not!
You know what? That's how life works! And making mistakes does not mean that people are bad. Human beings are not perfect, family life is *never* perfect, and relationships are not perfect either. I'm pretty sure everyone who judge DB have already disappointed someone one day or another. And, by the way, cheating is not typically a male thing. Women can be cheaters too. They're not better than men in this respect...
None of us know DB and his family personnally. We have no right to be judgemental. Perhaps he's just one more jerk, perhaps he's going through a very hard time at this point of his life and needs to deal with problems he may have already solved in private. Who knows?
As long as he's dedicated to his job and still rocks as an actor, I really don't see where the problem is for the fans.

Anonymous said...

If it comes out that David and Emily were involved with each other sexually, I will be so disappointed, that I will never watch another episode of Bones again. I know that it sounds stupid, but I can't help it, that's the way I feel.

k said...

I don't care, and I wish you hadn't posted this. It's not relevant to the show at all.

Rock said...

I believe that infidelity is wrong, I think many of us know people (men or women) have been unfaithful at some point, and for that reason are not bad people.
We are all human and make mistakes, I'm not pointing the finger against those infidels, no one is perfect.
also the private life of people is that, private. I have no right to judge anyone, I just hope that those who made mistakes, be able to rectify.

Anonymous said...

I know that ton of people have said this already but it is completly true; Yes, cheating on his wife was wrong, but people make mistakes! That is what makes us human, and not aliens! Plus, the only reason it is so big, is because he is famous. So many people cheat on there spouses, that doesnt make it right, but we don't see it in the newspaper all the time! He is not the first person to cheat, nor will he be the last!

And to those of you who are thinking that Emily is involved in this, may want to check yourselves! Just the fact that you are mentioning her in comments about who David has/may have slept with, is dragging her into the whole ordeal! Just because one person, who happens to work for a popular tv show, was caught sleeping with some other woman, does not mean that the people he works with, the people he is friends with, or the show itself are involved! Yes, DB and ED are adorable together, and yes they have explosive chemistry, on and off set, does not link them romantically. They spends hours and hours on end together, you can't expect them to not goof off or have fun. They are friends! They get along! So what?! Michaela conlin is friends with david, tj thyne is friends with emily. it is possible to be friends with someone who is of the opposite sex without actually having sex with them!

I really hope that they can work through this. I personally do not like his wife, but that doesnt mean that she did anything wrong, or that she deserved this. It is truely terrible for both of them.

Also, as i said to my friend earlier, it takes two to tango! Gloria, or who-ever-she-is is just as much to blame as david! She knew full well that he was married, and that he had a family, yet she allowed it to happen! Then to demand money for it!? That is just sick. So she destroys his reputaion and want money for it!

David boreanaz was wrong to cheat on his wife, im sure we can all agree, but we all have to remember that no one knows what he was thinking, we cant all point fingers at him for something two people both do. We should just appreciate the fact that he has stopped, and that him and his wife are trying to work it out.

Lastly, i find it pretty brave to admit it and accpet the consiquenses! He was smart enough to pull out of this early on, and to not pay her off. If he had paid her off, who knows what else she could have asked for? I am glad that he faced it, and now he doesnt have to hide anything else, and the torture of wondering when the dam would break and his secret being left out, he doesnt have to think about it! He can now move on with his life, and learn from this.

This is sad, especially if it harms or taints people who are innocent,

How DB handles this will say a great deal about what kind of a person he is. But his moral or immoral conduct is his to own.

jonesinforbones said...

I don't know why anyone holds celebrities to a higher moral standard than the average bear.

Sure it's disappointing - but no more than if I'd found out that my neighbor or coworker was cheating on a spouse.

sure, i don't think celebrities are held to a higher standard; the standard is the same for everyone. But I have lost my desire to watch Bones and Booth look deeply and meaningfully into each others' eyes, without saying what we know they are feeling! I've just got other intrusive thoughts, currently. on the one hand, this sucks, but on the other hand, maybe i won't waste so much time... I am not 'judging' DB; I am sure I know nothing about him. But that doesn't change the fact that now when I see him, even when he is acting, I am aware of this whole 'baggage' which 'sullies' Booth...maybe Sully looks better than we thought. I know this is stupid, but...

cheating is bad. cheating when your wife is pregnant and/or at home with your new baby is incomprehensibly bad.

i am sooooo disappointed that this was posted on this site.

I think this bad situation is relevant to the show in that DB himself made it public and it may have an impact on the cast and/or the show.

I feel for the rest of the cast members - usually there are end of the season interviews, articles about finales - now, everything will probably all be about this mess.

What will happen when cast members are interviewed? Probably the reporters will bring up all of this.

It's a shame everyone else associated with the show will in some way be affected by what has happened.

I wish none of us had to read about this - but, he did make it public and it is spreading like wildfire - it would have been pretty hard to keep it off this site when you have people who are self-defined as "obsessed with bones" - I'm guessing many if not most keep up on news related to the show and its cast.

Please don't attack me for posting this. I hate posting gossip, but it's not gossip. It's just as relevant as posting him going to hockey games or anything else. He came out and said these things himself, hence why I posted it.

Wendy, you are so right. NOBODY should attack you for something that is true. I have been on this blog for 2 years and when rumors were running rampant about DB an ED on all the other blogs, this was the only one that did not participate in the gossip. Keep doing what you are doing. People appreciate it.

Wendy said...

Thanks :)

If Wendy hadn't made this post, people would have commented on it anyway as we saw last fall. So instead of having comments on this issue all over the blog, they are now confined to this post to give everybody a choice whether to read it or not, just like a spoiler post. Sounds like a fair deal to me.

Sorry Wendy. It was not meant to be an attack. I guess I was trying to be in denial becausre I really didn't want to know about this.
:-(

I love this site and thank you for keeping it alive for us.

You are awesome!

in Booth's words, from Proof in the Pudding:

now who saw that coming!

Stephanie said...

I agree that this is very relevant to the show. As I said above, the first couple comments I ever saw on this story were from people who said they wouldn't be watching the show anymore. His confession will affect the way some people view David, which will just naturally affect the way some people look at Booth. Bones hasn't aired an episode since this came out, so we don't know if this story will ultimately have an affect on the show itself or not, but it's relevant to the site.

And, you know, if this post hadn't been made, people would be commenting with links about this in every other post on the site. Now it's contained to this one place and for the most part, the conversation has been civil, which is nice.

I hope the journalists don't spend too much time asking the other cast members or Hart about this. I'll admit that I'm kinda curious as to how long they've known about it, but I think for the most part, the TV journalists stay out of their personal lives. I mean, we don't see interviewers asking Emily about her boyfriend all the time, so hopefully they won't focus on David's cheating when interviewing everyone else.

Courtney said...

I'm guessing that DB may have given the people at the show a heads up. He is a producer as well as one of the leads, so I hope he did let them all know in advance.

It would be awful if he hadn't and they were all blindsided by this - but, the cast and everyone with the show "seems" close so I like to think he did the right thing by them.

Anonymous said...

I'm glad he is finally owning up to his mistakes and I plan on continuing to be a fan. But for right now I am very disappointed in him. If I am feeling betrayed I can only imagine what his wife is feeling. She must be a strong woman to deal with all this.

Anonymous said...

Honestly I would be surprised if this WAS a surprise to his co-workers. I worked in television production for a long time, and stuff like this is usually an open secret. Television is a strange place, there is a camaraderie that exists that is difficult to explain. Almost like combat in a weird way. You protect your own. It most certainly sucks for his wife and children. I may sound like a cynic, but I can't believe people are shocked by this news.

Last night on TNT, they reran two Bones, ConMan and the Lye shows. In both, we get see Booth take the moral high ground. In Lye he objects to Brennan's comments on the need for sex being an irresistable urge in an anthropological sense after having been "caught" sleeping with Rebbeca. Booth expalins that HE has no such issues. In light of the events of this week, it was hard to keep from laughing. When Brennan then essentially offers to service his biological needs at the end of the episode, he gets flustered and goes to be serviced by Cam. They could not have chosen a more perfectly ironic episode to run last night. Either TNT has a great sense of humor or they were oblivious.

@Aardvark508. I thought the same thing when I watched that show. I was LMAO. This man is too handsome for his and his wife's good. He is a snake. Read some reports that he was using his trailer for his many sex romps. People have told me it is next to impossible to get on the Bones lot. Could some of his sexcapades been with cast members? I know men like him, and no matter what they say they never CHANGE.

Totally agree with Anon 10:59 about television being a strange place.

But c'mon people! Have any of you had occasion to actually WORK in the company of actors? Or in the entertainment industry at all? Actors are able to be successful professionally because they are extremely charismatic people with magnetic personalities that thrive on attention and external validation. (Granted, I may be making a generalization here, but it seems to be true of many of the male actors I have met.)

I need to be vague, but in my early twenties my professional obligations permitted me to travel and party with actors, directors, producers, and all sorts of artists. Even the actors who are lucky to get a guest spot on a cable TV show, have no trouble hooking up for the night. I was slightly promiscuous at that time, and the stories I could tell about some actors' "talents" would really make you blush.

DB did not deviate from any norm, and it truly a victim in this case. Nobody deserves this degree of public humiliation. You can't hold these people to the same standards because they truly live in a crazy world.

@Tara, WOW, I knew that Hollywood was a F***** up place, but never to this degree. The Depravity of it all. Even actors and actresses that I had as lot of respect for, come into question now. Let us all face it, the world is without morals,especially this place.

Anonymous said...

Just read the article in People magazine. I give this marriage only a 20% chance of surviving. WTF is wrong with this guy. His wife is beautiful. The photo that was out about a week ago, where they looked lovey dovey was all bul****.

Tara said...

@ anon 2:42.

To be fair, most the actors I dealt with were based in NY, London, or Vancouver, but I can't imagine L.A. ones to be much different. And my experience really only pertains to specific actors. Of the actresses I met, I never knew any to sleep around.

I just thought that as someone who once enjoyed casual relationships with people in the entertainment industry, I could share a unique perspective. I wasn't trying to illustrate moral depravity. ;(

Vane said...

I think he is such a bad person, cheating your wife, cheating your wife while pregnant, giving them money, telling it becouse you don´t want to give more, and all while you say you are a good catholic boy and your family is the most important for you, come on! How can you be such a liar, inmature and horrible person!

And think that a I was so happy when I met him in NY last year, he is such a gorgeous guy and he was very nice, I was so nervous that the pictures I took were all moved, and now look at this... He is not worth at all.

At least we'll always have Booth.

Now, as I visit my favorite Bones websites and blogs around the internet it just seems wrong to see some of the pictures and read the comments that are posted. Talking about loving him and the seductive poses that are presented just seem wrong in light of what is going on in David's real life. It seems almost like we are encouraging bad behavior. It just doesn't seem appropriate. I know fans are not to blame but it doesn't seem like we are helping things.

liz said...

sorry but i cannot avoid posting on this thread again. i feel deflated and nauseaus for the past ~24hrs, since hearing the (admittedly) rumours about DB having an affair with a porn star. Sigh. I realize this is a rumour, but if in fact it is true, well, I don't know if I can 'compartmentalize' this out when watching Bones. tonight during the finale, i could not shut it out, and actually felt relieved that there was no kiss... although HH is putting us shippers through the wringer, I actually did not feel like my Bones-obsession was dissipating until this news.... can anyone cheer me up a bit?
