“Cheaters Will Cost You Your Heart”

— November 5th, 2006 —

Cheaters is a popular show where Joey Greco and private investigators look into the claims of infidelity from concerned lovers. For anyone who has watched the show, it is hilarious. Hell, I’m cracking up right now, as I’m watching an episode that I tivo’ed at my mom’s crib. But for all of the laughter, there is a seriousness to it.

Are relationships worth it anymore?

The show may be a microcosm of what goes on in the households of America, but, who’s to say that this isn’t a majority trend? According to Peggy Vaughan, author of The Monogamy Myth, 50 to 65 percent of husbands and 45 to 55 percent of wives become extramaritally involved by the age of 40.

Cheaters has everyone from gays to straights, young and old, all finding out that their lover is getting or giving the sausage to someone else.The episode that is on right now has brothers fighting. Why?

Because the younger brother was sleeping with his older brother’s girl. The funniest thing is how whenever they get caught, they get mad at the camera crew. The camera crew?! They just along for the ride, playa. Be mad that you didn’t scout that house properly, while they had cameras in the crib filming you. Be mad that you didn’t cover your tracks as those P.I.’s followed your every move. Be mad that you didn’t have the balls (women included) to stay faithful to the one that you decided to be in a relationship (or marriage) with.

Watching this show allows you to get an inside look at heartbreak in its truest form. It is a human car wreck. You get to see best friends stab each other in the back, co-workers, family members — the whole nine, and it makes for great entertainment. But it is real life. Real feelings are involved. The show throws salt into the homes of America, if they allow it to poison their relationship.

The will power of men and women, alike, is hilarious. Trust is a key, once lost, it can be hard to find and once found — the lock may be changed. Cheaters gives the viewer the ingredients to take a look at their own union. But is it warranted? Suspicion and paranoia tend to go hand in hand, particularly when it comes to matters of the heart. Besides — not everyone has access to Joey Greco’s team of cameramen and spies, so… just because you have a “hunch”, it may not be accurate.

If you allow a television show to rule your relationship, you deserve whatever you get out of it — good or bad. The fights and intrigue are all enjoyed while watching in the comfort of your own home, but when it’s your house that is burning — your heart is too heavy of a cost to pay.

    I believe people get paranoid in relationships not because of what they see on TV but because they feel they are giving their heart to someone. They don’t truth their choice in mate or the mate enough to believe their heart is safe.
