How Cheaters Woo Their Mistresses: The Four Types of Spenders
By Jo Piazza Posted Apr 8th 2010 08:00PM
Most men have to pay to play when they're trying to impress the ladies. You would think the amount they spend would increase accordingly if they're rich and famous. You would think it would go up even more so if they come with a lot of baggage...and if that baggage comes in the form of a wife.
With the current epidemic of high profile cheaters, we now have the ability to examine the spending habits of celebrity philanderers and have found that the more money a guy has doesn't necessarily translate into better perks for the ladies. In fact, some serial cheaters are downright cheap when it comes to their other women. Let's take a look at which cheaters are coughing up the goods and which aren't even worth the coach flight they had you fly in on.
"The Big Spender" - The most recent addition to the horny husbands club, former pro-footballer and television personality Tiki Barber reportedly spared no expense when it came to wooing his alleged mistress NBC intern and babysitter Traci Lynn Johnson.
According to the New York Post, Barber sent the staffer roses on her birthday, bought a diamond and sapphire bracelet and even a little white pooch to keep her company on the nights he had to spend with his family. Now there's a guy who knows how to keep a lady happy.
"My Wife Is The One With Real Money" - Jesse James liked to find his women in strip clubs and while he was there he was putting more than singles in their G-strings. Sources told Radar Online that James spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in the clubs and to fly his paramours around the country on private jets.
But James wasn't willing to spend his money on gifts or nice hotels. He is a man of the people after all.
Mistress Melissa Smith told Star magazine that James preferred to have sex on the couch in his office rather than take her out on the town.
"The Cheap Skate" - Admittedly Tiger Woods had a lot of women to try to accommodate and he had to try to spread the dollar dollar bills across the board, but you'd think that with an estimated fortune of $900 million he would have sprung for better than coach flights and remembered to send a birthday present here or there.
Mistress Mindy Lawton revealed Vanity Fair that the only thing he ever bought for her was a chicken wrap from Subway.
Jamie Jungers, winner of Howard Stern's Miss. Mistress beauty pageant once asked Tiger for some money to pay her rent and he said no way. "I felt trapped. I said can you please help me I said I don't know what else to do and I'm already embarrassed to ask you and he said I can't. I stopped being with him after that after 18 months," Jungers said. But that wasn't all. The man raking in millions from sponsorships never even bought her nice presents and when he flew her out to see him it was on Southwest, in coach. "He was cheap. He never tipped at restaurants. It embarrassed me," Jungers said. Jungers also explained she never even got a birthday card from Tiger.
"The Surrogate Spender" - Former Presidential candidate John Edwards (and maybe some of his donors) paid dearly to keep mistress Rielle Hunter happy, but Edwards' may not have know he was spending the money. Hunter recently admitted to GQ magazine that funds were given to her over the course of their relationship: "It was never hush money. Ever. Fred [Baron] gave me the money as a gift with no strings attached-Andrew gave me money because he felt I shouldn't be using my own money to travel to see Johnny. Andrew always wanted to "take care of everything."... Johnny had no idea what he was up to, nor did he ask him to do it. The dynamic was: Andrew always 'taking care of things' without telling Johnny or anyone else what he was doing, and claiming he was doing it 'on the senator's behalf.'"
