I was reading the story about Carrie Fisher telling the details on her affair with Harrison Ford while she was on Ellen. I read the article about 5 times, bewildered with thoughts. This is just my opinion:
Why would anyone wait 40 years to admit to having an affair? It’s not like there’s a statue or limitations on it or anything but it is just pathetic. I guess I just want to know why would someone wait so long? How come it couldn’t be one of those Hollywood secrets that people may have alluded to but never really knew if it was true or not. I could see if it was a deathbed confession and you just had to get it off your chest before you killed over but to drop a secret that big publically in order to boost book sales is unsat to me. If I was his wife or one of his kids, I think I would feel some kind of way. I can’t imagine how embarrassing it has to be when someone airs your dirty laundry.
Do you think she called his family first and gave them a warning? Do you think he knew about it before it hit the headlines? Maybe I’m over thinking it a bit. I just know that we all have skeletons in our closet. If I became famous tomorrow and decided to write a “tell all” book, trust and believe all names would be changed to protect the innocent and the not-so innocent (wink…wink). Okay, maybe I am lying on that one. But…I’m not famous and so I would have to cross that bridge when I got there.
In all seriousness, I really don’t understand her why? What if he asked her not to put it in her book? What if he asked her not to put his wife and ex-wives through the embarrassment? What if he asked her to consider his kids? Would she still do it?
Harrison Ford has been married several times but do you think he told his wives about all of his indiscretions? Most people don’t unless forced or faced with it. I’m left to ponder how she feels. Would she wonder about his fidelity now? Better yet, how would his wife that he married to during the affair feel? Did she know? Is she hurt or upset? Did she suspect? Did he tell her?
At the end of the day, I know people change but I am not so sure if I could still blindly trust even if it was 40 years ago. Harrison Ford probably didn’t lose any sleep over it but it’s bugging the hell out of me.
Shame on you…CF.
Shame on you!
