It is a sad day here in Melbourne to see that, well, actually, to hear it first on 3AW Radio Station that a very public figure to which my kids adore has been discovered to have had an extra marital affair. One of his main reasons was that "The girls were desperate for money"...and that "No they weren't prostitutes"...yeah right..it only cost him $1000 a week for the last fling.
I'm talking about Rex Hunt. My boys idolise him because he is Richmond..Tigerland. He is the man we listen to for fishing tips and so on. My son Tom got a signed autograph and a picture taken together and even had a chat on radio together!!
My boys can read but I dare not show them the front page of every newspaper today and dare not let them watch the news tonight. I am ashamed...so ashamed for his lovely wife. Incidentaly, she has bi-polar and has battled breast cancer so this all has to be a real prick (excuse the French) of a time for her. Not to mention they have a son and daughter from their 30 odd year marriage together. People may say, "Oh, but the kids are now adults" SO WHAT I say, he is still their Dad and she is still their Mum and those women who made cash out of him are tarts and that is it! I bet they take their stories to the trash magazines to make more money too, if they were as desperate as Rex says they were.
He takes us all for fools..and he is an ex policeman for goodness sake. Look, I know the world ain't perfect..and my life aint perfect, in fact, it is pretty darn exciting with the last few years developments. These developments have made our homelife complicated, yet exciting and overwhelming all at the same time. But, nowhere in our journey have we ever strayed..and I tell you, from this story I have learned..if I am going to even think of having a fling then Andrew won't have to look on my moblie phone to find a person under the word "WEATHER" as Rex had categorised his chick. How awful for his wife to have found out in this way. The worst bit is that her name for him was Uncle..yukk, how bloody young was she then? I know he is getting on in age and all but to call him Uncle, hmmm.
To think we went to his D'Lish Fish Restaurant for Good Friday, at least we know the money raised went to the Royal Children's Hospital and not to his floosey..
