When you say "stuff like this", I assume you mean offended little bimbettes who flip out & publish stuff on the web, right? Which then gets picked up during a slow news day in Manitoba.
Here's the thing: She's (most certainly) not a "ring rat" at all. He's an idiot & had an actual affair with some chick half his age. He dumped her, she had a hissy-fit, & puked the details to as much of the world as social networking would allow. Some old guy got caught having an affair. Whoop-dee-doo.
I expect "ring rats" operate under exactly the same model as rock or any other sports' groupies. You go public, you're out of the game. All parties understand that this is not "a serious relationship". What happens on the road, stays on the road.
(Actually the most surprising thing to me about this story? Billy *isn't* actually gay??)
Comparing Jericho to Booker is not useless. So Jericho had a little video flash for a month before he came? Wow. So did Tazz and look what happened to him. And to those of you who say announcing Smackdown is a big deal, that's just your opinion.
