Well, at least she "apologized"

Y'know, once -- just once -- we'd like to see someone like the Runwaway Bride come right out and say "Gee, folks, I was an idiot. I don't know how I could possily have done such a stupid thing or how I'm going to make it up to all the people I've hurt and/or inconvenienced."

We're not asking much here, just a sincere apology that aknowledges that the person in question actually did something wrong. Is that too much to ask?

There was a day when people who did stupid and hurtful thing were shunned by society, at least until after they offered a sincere and abject apology. Nowadays, since nothing's really "wrong" or "right" anymore, people don't seem to feel a need to apologize anymore.

Instead, look for an appearance soon on "Oprah", where -- instead of being chastised for her foolhardiness and insensitivity -- she'll be praised for being "brave". That, of course, will no doubt coincide with a book deal. Maybe even a movie of the week.

Oh, for the good old days....

Never underestimate the value of a bad example.

Oops! Sorry.... she's only a bad example if Oprah, et al are willing to acknowledge the badness of her example.

WRT her fiance, if he doesn't know what he's in for by now, he's getting exactly what he deserves.

Ehh... the whole "good old days" thing is as bad as the ethical ambiguity plaguing America now... and that ethical ambiguity is just a symptom of the real problem: Lack of reason. People parrot what they hear about "Right and wrong are relative!" or perhaps they just "feel" that way or perhaps they really don't care. Whatever the case, stupidity is the cause, not any trend from "way back when."
Hey, after reading this blog and all of your (often well-deserved) nitpicking, I figure I can add some of my own, eh?
