When Cheating is not Cheating
If you have not heard the news, then please allow me to be the one to
enlighten you. Apparently, having sex with someone other than your
husband is not cheating as long as that person is your ex. According to
Carly, having sex with Sonny was not cheating since they have been
married and are “familiar” with each other. Is there anyone who can help
me understand her logic?
Since Carly’s inception, her perception has been twisted and
self-serving. Therefore, I did not expect her to be any different when
she found out about the Jax and Kate kiss. In typical Carly fashion, she
went ballistic. Apparently, a kiss weighs more than a quick “encounter”
in the back of a limo. Maybe she should tell Jax about it and let him
decide what is worse. Can I cast my vote?
There are both infidelities to some degree, yet the kiss does not
compare to the limo ride from hell. Jax and Kate shared a moment, which
they regretted and never spoke of or discussed again. It was as if it
never happened, until Carly found out. On the other side of the
spectrum, Carly and Sonny had sex and cannot stop talking about it, to
each other (and Jason). They also use their encounter to threaten each
other with the possibility of exposure, just for plain spite.
If you are a regular viewer, then you know Alexis’ warning to Jax and
Kate is a self-fulfilling prophecy. In the endless yet never boring
Carly and Sonny saga, they are one step closer to reuniting. Isn’t that
how it works? They love each other, then hate each other, then try to
wreck each other’s life by using the kids, then they soften up to each
other, then they decide that they can’t live without each other, hence
getting remarried in a private ceremony. Am I the only one who sees this
The people I feel sorry for are Jax and Kate. Although I have never
discussed my hatred for Jax yet it’s there, but I will go on the record
to say that he does not deserve this. He does not deserve Carly and her
warped perception on how everything she does is fine while everything
that is “done” to her is not. The person I feel the most for is Kate.
She will have to face Carly’s irrational wrath. She has given Carly the
excuse she has needed to go after her full throttle. Now that I think
about it, is this really about Jax or is it about Sonny? After all,
Sonny does plan to marry Kate, and we all know how Carly feels when
another woman is coming first in Sonny’s life.
