    Dr. Laura: Basically, It Is Silda’s Fault That Her Husband Cavorted With WhoresThe Today show invited noted moralist Dr. Laura Schlessinger on to promote her book Stop Whining and Start Living and to discuss Eliot Spitzer’s sex scandal this morning. But they seemed surprised when, predictably, she acted Dr. Laura–ish: “When the wife does not focus in on the needs and the feelings, sexually, personally, to make him feel like a man, to make him feel like a success, to make him feel like her hero, he’s very susceptible to the charm of some other woman making him feel what he needs,” Schlessinger said. Today hostesses Meredith Viera, Ann Curry, and Hoda Kotb stared at her. There was palpable silence. It was awkward, even for us at home. Finally, Viera managed to speak: “You’re saying the women should feel guilty that they somehow drove the man to cheat?” she asked. “The cheating was his decision to repair what’s damaged and to feed himself where he’s starving,” Schlessinger explained. “But, yes, I hold women responsible for tossing out perfectly good men by not treating them with the love and kindness and respect and attention they need.” Right, because Spitzer was clearly a perfectly good man.

  30. in the magazine
    New ‘WSJ’ Luxury-Title Editor: Which Archetype to Assign?Today we learn that Tina Gaudoin will be the editor of a yet-to-exist quarterly luxury supplement to The Wall Street Journal. We imagine it will be sort of like the Times magazine T. Well, probably it will be exactly like it. But anyway, according to the memo obtained by Romenesko: Tina will bring [the Journal] a valuable set of skills from her extensive career in the magazine world. She began her career at Tatler working as beauty editor. In 1992 she moved to New York to work on the re-launch of Harpers Bazaar. During her time in New York she also worked at Vogue as senior writer and then as a presenter on Barry Diller’s Q2 channel. Returning to London, she became deputy editor of Tatler before launching the women’s magazine Frank. After that she became editorial director of the iVillage UK web site . She joined The Times of London in 2003 as style director of its Saturday magazine and was named editor of the quarterly magazine The Times Luxx in June 2007. So … luxury-journalism experience … luxury-journalism experience … something about Barry Diller … luxury-journalism experience. Hm. There doesn’t seem to be anything in there about whether she is qualified to run a luxury journalism title. That is, there’s no explanation of whether she has a ridiculously over-the-top personality and outrageously self-demanding personal (and sartorial) daily regimen. With a touching underdog story.

    Meredith Viera Plays the Sinbad Card Meredith Viera: “But when you mention something like Bosnia people have responded, yeah, but she went to Bosnia, for example, with Sinbad.” Hillary Clinton [Trying to act like this is not the most embarrassing thing that’s happened to her since Monica]: “That’s right, mmmm-mm.” Meredith Viera [Making frustrated noises]: “That wasn’t really establishing any kind of foreign policy.” Hillary Clinton: “Oh, you know…” Meredith Viera: [Practically snorting with laughter now]: “I mean, I’m not saying that traveling to a war-ravished country with a guy who played the condom in Malcolm Jamal-Warner’s classic after-school special Time Out: The Truth About HIV, AIDS, and You wasn’t an experience, it’s just probably not the kind of experience the American people are looking for in their next president.” (Actually, she didn’t say that last thing. But she might as well have. And the rest is real.)
