This is not the kind of thing we usually post but it's Valentine's Day and I just couldn't resist after reading a New York Times article with some tips for the newly single media mogul.
In December, the New York Times' Brooks Barnes did a little research on Murdoch's behalf. Barnes noted that "A new female friend may help give his image a boost following widespread speculation about (ex-wife number 3) Ms. Deng’s romantic entanglements." Barnes figured that Murdoch could use some help in that department, given his history of three failed marriages.
First up, Patti Stanger, of Bravo’s “Millionaire Matchmaker.”
Her advice? Avoid gifts of cash, credit cards, condos or cars — the Four C’s. “Those are gifts for a wife, not a girlfriend,” Ms. Stanger said. Mr. Murdoch, at least early on, should avoid going on dates to places that may bring up bad memories of Ms. Deng. (Mental note, interested ladies of Los Angeles: Skip the House of Pies.)
Ken Solin, a dating columnist for AARP’s online magazine, warned Mr. Murdoch to resist trying to make himself appear younger by deploying 50 shades of gray — dyeing his hair various tinges of brown, black and auburn. Mr. Murdoch does have a poor track record in this department: “Rupert Murdoch Debuts New Hair,” intoned a Huffington Post headline in 2010.
Good luck, Rupert!
These frauds don’t stay married very long, and the ones that do probably have a mister or mistress on the side- which is common in this industry-or they seek out the services of prostitutes.
One Iberian-looking mouthpiece said it best: “If you are going to cheat on your spouse be smart about it.” What he meant was use a prostitute. They don’t squeal to the media. Or, use a website that caters to cheating spouses without revealing the names of their clients. He must speak from experience, and he knows who he is.
