My Married Life: Husband Poachers: Myth or Monster?

Let's talk about the Shape magazine, LeAnn Rimes fiasco.

So here's the chain of events as I understand it: Shape magazine put LeAnn Rimes on its cover. In response, Shape gets tons of angry emails saying that LeAnn was a husband-stealing hussy and, like, "I don't want to look at that skank on the cover of my fitness magazine!" Shape Editor in Chief Valerie Latona then wrote an apologetic email to readers that included the following: "Please know that our putting her [LeAnn] on the cover was not meant to put a husband-stealer on a pedestal, but to show (through her story) how we all are human. And this woman in particular found strength in exercise in what she said was her most difficult personal moment."

Cut to now: As blog land continues to debate it all, there are quite a few commenters who think that the whole "husband-stealer" thing is completely bogus and that it's wrong to vilify “the other woman” when it's the man who is violating vows and breaking promises. Then there are those who seem to think women like Rimes deserve to be blacklisted. Personally, I don't think she's Shape cover material (i.e., inspiring enough to make me wanna jog), but I don't necessarily want to see her tarred and feathered either. What do you think?
