Elise Testone Denies She Broke Up American Idol Guitarist’s Marriage

OMG. WHAT? American Idol alum, Elise Testone busted up the marriage of Idol guitarist Errol Cooney?  Elise says it ain’t so! lol.  Errol was not only on the Idol tour, but has been playing guitar for Philip Phillips on the Idol winner’s  his radio gigs.  Via TMZ (of course!)

“American Idol” finalist Elise Testone is a no-good man-thief who broke up the 6-year marriage of an ‘Idol’ guitarist — at least according to the dude’s wife, but Elise tells TMZ she never did the deed.

Here’s the deal … Elise met Errol Cooney during Season 11 of ‘Idol’ — when she made it to the top 6, and he played guitar for the band. Both Elise and Errol were on Idol’s summer tour.

Just last week Errol’s wife Erin Cooney filed for divorce in LA County Superior Court … citing “irreconcilable differences” — but a rep for Erin tells TMZ the real reason for the breakup is an alleged affair between Errol and Elise.

The rep claims .. back in September, Erin stumbled upon what she believed to be incriminating emails between Elise and Errol, and immediately confronted him.

The rep says Errol confessed to everything.

In addition, TMZ obtained an email Elise sent to Erin last week … in which Elise says, “Errol was the only person who I felt really loved me in my entire life.”

Elise also apologizes to Erin for “any pain you feel I may have caused you, but this is not my fault.”

When we contacted Elise … she denied having the affair, saying … “We developed a friendship on Tour and he developed feelings for me.”

Elise adds, “Their divorce has nothing to do with me and has been a long time coming.” Attempts to reach Errol were unsuccessful.

    I think that when a married person has an affair it is just as much their ‘fault’ as the person who they had an affair with. The married person is the one who has made a commitment to another person and they have control over their behavior and the responsibility to remain committed.

  • luci212

    Oh snap. Elise a home wrecker never would have thought it.

  • Niall

    If they had an affair then shame on both of them. He broke his vows and Elise should have respected the marriage–even if he didn’t.

  • potatorocks

    Their business.  If there are not any kids involved and he does not have the job of protecting our nation(CIA, Secret Service) it is between the three of them.

  • Eriko

    Just as much?…I´d take it further and say the married person is the only one responsible for his/her actions.

  • http://twitter.com/Miztig Miz

    Married person is 100% responsible for any cheating they do – whether physical or emotional.

    Good luck Elise.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Yes, the married person is the only one responsible for his/her actions, but the other person was also willing to disrespect the marriage, so I believe that there is responsibility there too.

    OMG Queen Elise! lol

  • chessguy99

    TMZ, keeping Idol in the gossip news again.

  • Valarie

    That’s what all homewreckers say. ‘The marriage was over long before……’ It is called rationalization.

  • chillj

    So, why not blame the guy who had the affair?  

  • chillj

    Hard to know what is going on (or not going on) in someone’s marriage.

  • OffLeash

    Wow. Elise? I’m shocked. AFAIC, both the married person and the one who has an affair with someone they know is married are equally morally deficient. Although it really is none of my business, I’m very disappointed in Elise.

  • too-cool-for-school

    Both are equally at fault, of course. I feel bad saying this, but this doesn’t shock me. Disappointing still… and if true at all.

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    Oh man, I don’t know you guys. I refuse to believe this. Sometimes people do make up lies, but maybe that’s because I think Elise is better than this. But I don’t personally know any of the three parties in this story, so I can’t assume anything about anyone. 

  • too-cool-for-school

    I don’t want to believe it either. :/ I also can’t put things past anyone anymore… which really stinks. Sigh. But hopefully/maybe it won’t wind up being true.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Did Elise piss off Nigel in some way?

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I’m never shocked as what people I don’t know IRL do. Heck, sometimes I’m shocked at what people I DO know IRL do. 

  • Axxxel

    Yeah, that is what some cheating spouses say as well… “The marriage was over long before”…

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_LTM3D353Z62EY545UJHEYMD4DU F

    who cares. everybody i know is having or has had an affair and it doesn’t seem to stop the world from spinning. and i find the moral indignation of others highly amusing. if they protest loud enough maybe it won’t happen to them.

  • Axxxel

    Evidence : Emails, text messages, chat messages…they are the new “phonebills”… Then again, the source is TMZ…

    Moral of the story… if a married guy or girl starts pouring their hearts out or start complaining about their spouse… and you are of the opposite gender… Run…

  • irockhard

    I hold this view as well, if the 3rd party is the one making advances the married person is capable of saying no.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “But I don’t personally know any of the three parties in this story, so I can’t assume anything about anyone. ”

    True, but since I don’t really know any of these people, I’m not surprised at whatever they might do or say.

  • wkstrack

    Wait, WHAAT?!  Errol always seemed like a nice, family man type of guy. But you don’t really know these people just because you saw them play or whatever.  One thing is for sure though is that the TMZ/tabloids really loves the contestants of S11 lol

  • Kitty Armistead

    I call BS. I don’t believe anything TMZ says. Their “quotes” don’t even sound like Elise and I really can’t see her commenting to them.  The only evidence they have is their word and I find the truthfulness of their word to be highly dubious.

    Elise is a really sweet person, and like Kesia said, better than this.

    And I repeat, it’s TMZ. Are you REALLY going to take their word as gospel?

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “Elise is a really sweet person, and like Kesia said, better than this.”

    She may very well be, but unless you know her in real life, there’s no way that you can really be sure of this. I’m not saying that I believe any gossip about a celeb, but tbh, since I don’t know them, nothing surprises me any more.

  • http://twitter.com/noanaaman Noa Na’aman

    haha!! that’s one thing i don’t mind taking from all of this- another reason to be pissed off at Nigel. other than that? who cares?… does she have a record deal yet? that’s the only thing i want to know!

  • Axxxel

    If they protest loud against cheating, it can also be a reminder to themselves not to cheat… you know… walk the talk…

  • wkstrack

    Well, not really. But I do find it interesting that TMZ/tabloids seemed to have ignored the past two season’ AI contestants. I don’t recall people like  Scotty, Lauren, James and Haley  in anything like this…..Nor anyone from S9….Besides we don’t really know these people just because we saw them on Idol, etc.

  • Pippygirl

    may very well be, but unless you know her in real life, there’s no way
    that you can really be sure of this. I’m not saying that I believe any

    I think even if you know someone in real life, you can’t be sure of what they might do. In my life I’ve been surprised at what generally good people that I know will do. I’ve come to the conclusion that a person can rationalize almost anything if they really want to.

  • OffLeash

    Nigel and TMZ are tighter than ever it seems. What’s in it for Nigel? Keeping Idol in the headlines at anybody’s expense? (If you consider TMZ headline worthy, that is.) Is Nigel gonna have TMZ stir up sh!te all season too? Ugh…

  • DragonFly

    “Determining more or less guilt for either person involved in a cheating situation (one or both married)–nah, I’m not that generous!

  • OffLeash

    True. You can rationalize anything if you want to. In your head that is. It doesn’t mean other people won’t see it for what it is LOL.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    Elise is by far the best singer/musician with whom Errol has been playing together lately.

  • Axxxel

    I am not really following American Idol closely but  I think this is the first time an American Idol finalist (of the top 13) has been rumoured to be involved in a love affair with a married person.

  • Nadine_Bitch

    Haven’t heard of Fantasia?

  • OffLeash

    I hope it isn’t because the producers have decided to JerrySpringerize the show in the hopes of boosting the ratings. Never thought I’d say this, but I’m getting more grateful every week that The Voice decided to air for two seasons.

  • halo9125

    I guess the concept of “it gets lonely on the road” holds true in this case. Also, let’s not forget, Elise is an adult woman- far different from the usual Idol contestant. We’re not talking about a 20 year old, and Elise should have known better.

    If it’s true, I find it quite sad for everybody involved. 

  • http://twitter.com/Sassycatz Sassycatz

    And, since my “idol memory” isn’t always “all that,” she may not even be the first.

  • Nadine_Bitch

    and there’s that girl who had an affair with Jason Aldean. I forgot her name, she wasn’t a top 13 finalist though.

  • guinness 416

    If it is true (hell, even if it’s not true) Elise is best served by keeping her mouth very firmly shut.  “It was a long time coming” may very well be something Erroll the lover boy has been whispering in her ear for a while, or something Erroll the drinking buddy told her over beers, who knows, but commenting on other peoples’ marriages or divorces is never a good idea.  No matter how concerned you are, or even if you’re just saying you don’t give a crap, it sounds judgemental and TMZ will certainly twist it that way.

  • Jordana33

    Oh well….I still like Elise. Since we really don’t know any of the details, I think I’ll refrain from judging anyone. 

  • Axxxel

    “I guess the concept of “it gets lonely on the road” holds true in this case.”

    Or it might be a case of “it gets stressful on the road” and I need some diversion to relax…

    I guess the clause in the new judges contracts after season 8 did not extend to the support staff forbidding personal contact with the contestants.

  • http://twitter.com/raya4 raya

    Not the “news” I was expecting to see this morning. Ha ha.  Reserving judgment since its TMZ and I don’t know any of these people. At least I’m not as outraged as I get when TMZ or whoever goes after the idol kiddies.  Elise is a grown woman who can handle her own business, though she would likely be best served by keeping her mouth shut instead of fueling the fire.

    Interesting though that TMZ is suddenly having a field day with the S11 gang when they couldn’t seem to drudge up anything during the season whatsoever outside of the Jermaine nonsense and perhaps P2’s illness.

  • http://twitter.com/Stooch101 Stooch

    Is this the guitar player that wore the beanie sometimes on Idol?  The one who played the guitar solo when Elise did the Van Halen song?

  • merkureye

    Something doesn’t pass the smell test here. 

    A)  I have heard Elise say in interviews several times that she doesn’t have a boyfriend, her relationship is with music because she loves music.

    B)  Elise is single, mature (29 yrs old), bright, talented, beautiful, and now a semi-celebrity.  She can date almost anyone of the eligible single men out there who would be attractive to her.

    C)  From what I have observed (from her interviews and tweets) she is a caring person who I believe would listen to someone going through a hard time.  She did tweet “Here is Errol Cooney!” with a picture but, she tweeted about several members of the band and crew along with pictures.

    D)  Per her tweets and others (Heejun, Hannah Blackwell, others) she was known to hang out with them late night so it doesn’t seem there was much time in between to be doing anything but “talking” to anybody on the crew or band.

    E)  No spouse just runs down and files for divorce after reading a few tweets that they deem in their mind to be “incriminating.’  Case in point, Jason Aldean’s wife didn’t run to the courthouse to file, and we have pictures of him with the Carrie look-alike!  Errol’s wife filed within two months.  That is a little too fast in my opinion for just reading a couple of texts.  Even if there was another woman (not Elise) a spouse usually fights unless there a multiple betrayals.  Obviously Elise doesn’t “want” Cooney so why doesn’t she try to patch things up rather than file?

    F)  I have “listened” to a lot of sob stories about peoples’ spouses while at work and none of those events turned into a torrid affair.  Sometimes people just atart talking and since you “know” them a little, it is hard not to empathize.  While on tour, Elise and Mr. Cooney are at work.  I’ve seen a lot of relationships whose break-up “has been a long time coming”.  If someone would ask me after a divorce or break-up if I was surprised I would probably say I saw it coming from a mile away too (not TMZ thoufh).

    G)  From the “quotes” above about Elise feeling Errol really loves her, this is something that could be taken from just conversations.  For example, I love a lot of people who are not my wife.  It doesn’t mean we have a physical relationship.  It just means I love them and I think they love me as people and friends.

    H)  Again from interviews, I believe Elise is a little naive.  For example, she has stated she is going to have Brian May (Queen) play guitar and Suan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks produce her album.  This was never going to happen on an Indie CD. This naivete would lead Elise to accept that her conversations with Cooney were purely platonic since they probably were only platonic from her perspective.

    Enough said.  I am going to believe Elise’s story on this one.  There may have been an emotional “affair” but not an actual one IMO.

  • http://twitter.com/shoriagirl Shoriagirl

    Everybody believes TMZ now? I thought, TMZ was unreliable source…

  • justmefornow

    If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck – it’s a duck.
    Not really surprised actually, but I feel sorry for the wife. Do they have any kids? I hope not.
    This is a lot less funny than the Pia, Stefano and Haley love triangle from A10. At least none of them were married.

  • http://twitter.com/raya4 raya

    Because TMZ is known to be 100% reliable?  No thanks.  I don’t know the whole story, nor do I really care to actually.  But I’m not taking the word of TMZ as gospel.  Though I suppose this gives them a break in their Justin/Selena break-up coverage.

  • fantoo1

    It’s not like they will show this on the show. Most of the idol stuff on tmz they won’t show on the show.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I’m not. I just have no reason to eliminate the possibility that TMZ is right about this. I can’t defend or accuse people I don’t know IRL.

  • escape

    My first gut: there is some truth to this.  This sounds terrible, but neither party are prominent enough for Nigel to spin Idol chatter around.  And it says that Elise is flawed.  I like Elise and this would not change my mind about her as a performer.

  • roarpen

    Well….1) it’s TMZ and 2) No excuse for the parties, but they are human, which is the definition of flawed. This is the stuff that hurts hearts and reputations, but that happens all the time. No one knows what goes on in a marriage. And yes, the road is a dangerous place for a lonely heart. 3) Critics and morally superior types should not buy a glass house anytime soon.

  • shell29

    I don’t know.    If it is true, then Elise is as much to blame as the married guy.  Unless she didn’t know that he was married I’m not willing to give her a pass.  Elise’s response sounds like the response of someone who is trying to justify their actions by saying the marriage was over or in trouble anyway.  To me it sounds like these two did have something going on but Elise doesn’t want to be labeled a “homewrecker”.

    I can understand Elise’s fans not wanting to believe this is true.  I hope it’s not true but if it is all parties will work it out as they see fit. 

  • http://twitter.com/HighTensions Jake Williams

    Bad voice and a homewrecker. Not a good mix.

  • justmefornow

    Ok so I watched that video. 
    Ouch! Sorry, but all it proves is Elise can’t cover Led Zepp, lol. That was awful.

    All kidding aside, this story is a shame for his wife if true, which looks true to me, but who knows.
    Ironically, Elise is so far under the radar now that this might actually help her career.

  • Incipit

    TMZ at it again?  The story of the private email is a nice touch as a substitute for ‘the source’…and it’s randomly interesting that everyone’s name starts with the letter “E”. But it’s also NMB…IMO.

    Oh, yes – the Caveat –>

    “TMZ casts aspersions the way monkeys throw sh*t.” ™Eilonwy

  • Reflects On Life

    It’s got to be incredibly tough on a marriage with one person gone all the time, touring on the road.  Neither party is getting their needs met very often.  (Unless they are, but not by each other).  It amazes me that any marriage of this sort lasts, especially if there are no kids involved. Kudos to those that do for having the strength, trust, patience, and confidence to survive a very vulnerable position.

  • http://twitter.com/Stooch101 Stooch

    So if we can’t believe TMZ, does this mean Justin and Selena are still together, please say it’s so LOL :)

  • merkureye

    ha ha. . .I thought the same thing about Elise being off the radar screen and this possibly helping her career. 

    There has been zero visibility for Elise since the tour.  Unfortunately, this  means no record deal or management deal (necessary for concert tours and such).  It seems Elise’s career has stalled  I think she will find her way back but there is a hill to climb. 

    I hate her new “single” I Will Not Break.  That song is not a hit and won’t establish her.  It is as unmemorable as Pia’s This Time single which went nowhere.

  • fantoo1

    I also think TMZ doesn’t care enough about The Voice contestants because they literally disappear in thin air once the show is over. Jermaine who?

  • Niall

    The thing is, TMZ isn’t unreliable. More often than not their “gossip” is dead on or pretty close to it, unless it’s a situation with Nigel feeding them stories for PR. In this case, we’ve got a former, somewhat obscure contestant and a pissed off wife.

    In other words I don’t think Nigel created this story, and there’s a high probability the story is accurate.

  • DragonFly

    Pulled away from reading & (lol) I guess the “throwing stones” comment just made some of us duck!!!!  Seriously, this kind of stuff gets discussed—& I’m also always afraid of where life is going when “justmefornow” even hints that this could help a career. Please not a reality.Stress or loneliness on the road is not an alright reason or excuse to fall for an available, good-opportunity “diversion” in many people’s view.  A mate at home taking care of business is likely stressed trusting them on the road, taking care of business also… & lonely.  We may see/hear many examples of frivilous marriages ending in a flash these days, but it’s not throwing stones as much as some still hold faithfulness as a “near & dear” quality & want to share it as an opinion.   

  • wkstrack

    Why didn’t TMZ/tabloids do stories on people like Scotty? Who was a popular winner and his season (S10)  was a more popular season than S11. Plus, his album did very well. Idk. The only thing I can recall was about Casey’ medical issue and Pia getting kicked off and her dating the guy from DWTS. Both stories came out while the season was still on though and were true. I’m not saying I believe TMZ is 100% reliable but I wouldn’t doubt there is some truth there. I noticed that some of the Idol stuff that looks like it would be PR for Idol by Nigel or anyone else from Idol on TMZ happens when the season is still going on or trying to get buzz about the season. IMO I think Nigel/Idol already moved on from S11 and are now focused on creating buzz for S12. They already started with stories on how Mariah and Nicki don’t get along.

  • http://twitter.com/Stooch101 Stooch

    I only made a throwing stone comment in relation to myself, everybody else can judge to their hearts content lol :)

  • justmefornow

    If this goes on to help Elise’s career in any way that would follow a pattern of a sad commentary on our tabloid culture.

    It’s a shame, I agree, that now no talent celebs like Kim K. or Paris H. can become famous from sex tapes. Or trainwrecks like “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” which glorify white trash behavior, can become hits. 

    It’s actually very sad.

  • julesb2183

    I wouldn’ be surprised if this is true. My guess is that it has happened many times on idol. add hollywood’s lack of morality and add being away from family and being with the same people for months and you get affairs.

    Agree! It doesn’t make the third person free of his/her responsibility. He/She knows the person is married it’s should already a RED flag there and a NO-NO situations. They should be able avoid the situations. I think the blame should go to both of them. The third person and the husband who cheats.

    In other words I don’t think Nigel created this story, and there’s a high probability the story is accurate and there’s a wife who believes Elise and her husband had an inappropriate relationship.


    Who knows what really went on between Elise and Erroll. But, it seems clear that the wife BELIEVES something illicit went on, and now she’s out to trash Elise, by dishing dirt to TMZ.  

    Lythgoe, who has moved on to the new season, isn’t involved.  He’s got enough of his own drama to dish if he wants to call attention to Idol. lol.

  • http://twitter.com/shoriagirl Shoriagirl

    So, then TMZ was correct about Phillip Phillips “phamily” as well.

  • Jazz_11

    This is Funny. On the Kirsten Stewart affair with a director who’s marriage, people blame Kirsten Stewart. And in Ellis and this marriage guy, people blame the marriage guy?? This affair (if it’s true), will not happen if one of them are not interested, obviously both of them are a willing participants. Just remember, It takes two to Tango.

  • Jazz_11

    The Idol tour’s done right? So I thought once they’re out of Idol tour, they’re no longer Idol’s producers responsibility. Also divorce records are considered public record. Pretty sure TMZ hangs around at the court office as well.

  • Niall

    Shoriagirl-The Phil stories may not have been 100% accurate but they were illuminating about family dysfunction going on, even if it is just a slighted brother-in-law. In this case, there’s an angry wife who probably didn’t pull Elise’s name out of thin air for kicks and giggles.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/PVEFG2TOUIXSROKUSO2O2DOWWE Taylor

    Errol always seemed like a nice, family man type of guy

    I don’t know him, but he could still be a nice guy. He could be a nice guy who made mistakes. He could even still be a “family man type of guy” that could not be ready or not with the right one.

    The truth is, we don’t know any of these people and we have no idea what happened or the circumstances surrounding all who are involved. Hope things turn out for the best and everyone involved ends up in a better place in the future.

    Scotty hasn’t had TMZ stories because there’s nothing to really gossip about him-he even said that you won’t find his mugshot anywhere and he has lived a normal life.

    There might be something one day worth TMZ reporting on. There could be reports one day about those assosiated with him. Something interesting could happen with his girlfriend, family, management, or even his wife and kids one day.

  • merkureye

    It’s hard to know what’s going on here between Elise and Errol Cooney.  One thing is clear, there was some ill-advised texting/emails going back and forth between Elise and a married man.  This was probably in Elise’s mind, just being empathetic with a friend and providing some consolation to him for a failing marriage which he probably disclosed while touring.  I’m sure that Erin didn’t take kindly to anyone discussing her marriage with her husband and took revenge by dishing to TMZ. 

    Upon re-reading the emails between Elise and Erin as stated in the article, there is really no way to interpret anything further than what I have just described as a likely scenario.  The article just states Errol “confessed everything”.  What is everything?  Probably no more than confessing that he discussed his failing marriage with Elise.  Conversations do not rise to the level of an affair.  Again just speculating.  I don’t know what occurred but I have recognize that Elise denied the affair point-blank to TMZ.

    Adultery is not a new concept and it happens to people of all walks of life. Whether you are a Bill Clinton, Tiger Woods, Newt Gingrich or millions of other Americans that have cheated or been cheated on, it’s been around a while. Idol doesn’t have a monopoly on it, it’s prevalent every where.

  • Xentusk

    ….My ‘idealistic’ brain tells me Marriage should last forever….  My ‘realistic’ brain, knows that it doesn’t.  Divorce rates are higher than ever, as a species, we are not engineered for monogamy, and technology has supplied more avenues of infidelity, if not, at least ‘infidelity by text’….  It is ‘news’ when a couple manages to stay together for a “long time”…

    I’m really surprised that people ‘expect’ marriages to last, when in reality, most of us know, they do not… especially when you are in the entertainment industry, when temptation is everywhere (and so are cell phones and cameras)

    That is just your own interpretation of the “likely scenario” with a few bits of alleged “information”.

    To be fair-we really don’t know what went on between Elise and Errol. If Elise had gotten pregnant or aborted a baby. If paps captured them out canoodling in public–I think the rhetoric would be MUCH sharper.

    But anyway, I’d prefer that posters not question others motives or put words in their mouths. So lets stick to the subject, which is not Fantasia.

    I don’t see what Phillip and his family have to do with the point I’m making.

    True, we don’t know if the affair is true or not at this point. We will probably find out soon enough.  If it turns out to be true, Elise still won’t be a skank, slut or whore in my book. Getting pregnant wouldn’t make her one of these things either, IMHO.

    Someone else from that summer tour may know about this affair if it’s true. I find it hard to believe if this was going on last summer, no one saw or knew anything? 
    Maybe this explains P2’s girlfriend being his virtual shadow last summer, watching his every move. 
    Just a thought.

    Well, I never did like Elise.

    And am so glad I didn’t. Spared me disillusionment / disappointment on my part regarding her. :-)

    Rather than watching Phillip’s every move, Hannah was assisting him, as he stated in a recent interview. And what this has to do with her, I really don’t know.

  • justmefornow

    I don’t think she has anything to do with the Elise situation at all. 
    It’s just if some of the other Idols knew what was going on, maybe she was nervous seeing what could happen being on the road away from your family and didn’t want P2 there without her. Who knows.

    If this really was going on, others must have known about, that’s all.

    Reserving judgment. I hope the divorce is amicable, although involving the tabloids seems to make that pretty difficult.

    It’s a huge assumption that some of the other Idols knew what was going on.  There is nothing factual to back that up. Phil has already said why Hannah was there.  He was about to embark on this cross country tour after going through major (6 hr) surgery.  He had missed some meet and greets to take care of his health.  Phil has been on the road a lot since the tour, but she hasn’t travel that much with him.  But then he looks and feels much better than this summer.  He says he feels 10x better than before. You can tell by his deamenor.

    Hmm… Elise’s tone in her more recent series of tweets appears to be more ebullient than usual. I wonder if it has anything to do with Errol’s impending divorce paving the way for a possible union with him….

    IMO, That axium is TMZ’s life blood, what keeps them going. They provide the smoke, and depend on their readers to supply all the fire, and the hits for their ad revenues.

    If it turns out to have been a block of dry ice – oh well – there will be more smoke to blow, any minute now.

    BTW, I agree, pj. Nigel has nothing to gain by sending this particular smoke signal…he’s moved on to Season 12. IMO. Besides, he doesn’t use sex rumors, he prefers violence. *snerk*

     Yeah, we remember. IMO the two sitches are similar, and making comparisons between the two is to be expected, and isn’t out of line. To expect people not to compare the two is IMO unrealistic. Interesting how the sharp language and vitriol directed at Fantasia is surprisingly absent in this discussion/situation of Elise. I wonder why… Oh well, sluts are sluts and ho’s are ho’s – they come in all shapes and sizes and apparently in all seasons. I ain’t mad at either one of them, cause what they did or didn’t do doesn’t affect me one bit… if we hang around long enough, the whole truth will be revealed. When it comes out, I expect the comments for Elise to be filled with the aroma of nasty homewrecking whore! lowdown triflin’ skank! no morals slutbag, heh. Right is right, right? :)

  • justmefornow

    Of course it’s an assumption about others maybe knowing, but it’s a reasonable one. This same small group of people were together for months, if something like this was going on probably someone else knew about it.
    It’s like a work place affair in a small office. Things get out and people are aware. It’s kind of naive to think otherwise.

    If this was the reason P2’s gf decided to tag along or not, who knows. I really don’t care. It was just a thought that maybe she was aware of Elise’s situation. Especially because he was P2’s guitarist.

  • mjsbigblog


    Once again? FANTASIA IS NOT THE SUBJECT OF THIS POST. Dragging her into the discussion is off topic. ALSO. DO NOT QUESTION THE MOTIVES OF YOUR FELLOW POSTERS. How many times do I have to type that reminder?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PSHFTD4YV3QOE3INABJUXZSWMU hillstreetblooz

    Oh, ok. It’s just a little uneven and confusing IMO how the ‘subject of the post rule’ is applied to some posts and people and not others…. how is it that Cook, Lambert, Carrie and Daughtry’s track records can appear and be debated in forums for people like… say Philip Phillips snippets post, when clearly they have nothing to do with the subject of the post… oh well. Look for this comment to be deleted in…
