Mistresses Anonymous vs. Horndogs Anonymous

Posted: Updated:

A while back I wrote a piece about Mistresses Anonymous, the organization started by Sarah Symonds of the Gordon Ramsey indiscretion. Seems like all the women in the boat of having had an affair with a celebrity married man, come out swinging vis-a-vis the media. At least Sarah chose to use her position for good by starting Mistresses Anonymous, clearly an honorable thing to do. She has also become the go-to bloviator for every current infidelity plaguing our airwaves from Tiger Woods to Jesse James.

While Sarah is out stumping for the Elin Nordegren, Sandra Bullocks and Elizabeth Edwards of the world, who is going to be the spokes-model for these horn-dogs like John Edwards and now Bruce "The Boss" Springsteen? No one would dare come out in support of those Gross Baboons. Surely they have seen the error of their ways, having run off to sex rehabs in search of a better Q Rating with the hopes of resuming their careers. Is that not honorable? Well, then, I will take on the task. Starting with revising the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. Herewith:

The Twelve Steps of Horndogs Anonymous

1. We admitted we were powerless over poontang -- that our lives had become
unmanageable. Well, you try juggling 13 skanks and tell me otherwise.

2. Came to believe that our careers, which is a power greater than ourselves, could restore us to
sanity. Or a least some semblance of a life that would not end up on Page Six.

3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of our publicists, because God was nowhere to be found here.

4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of the hookers and skanks for making us do the nasty and loving it.

5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, to our publicists, agents and managers the exact nature of our wrongs. Sobbing.

6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character, since there was unfinished business deals that had to be honored, and we needed to show our face with out covering it.

7. Humbly asked Him to remove our name from Associated Press, Google, Bing, well, any search engine really.

8. Made a list of all persons we had "harmed", and became willing to pay them off in order to shut their pie holes....damn that Gloria Allred.

9. Made direct amends to our wives, their mothers, our mothers, everyone's mothers wherever possible, except when to do so would come off ingenuous.

10. Continued to take personal inventory of our possessions since our wives' mothers were packing up their stuff in order to save face.

11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with our publicists, managers and agents, because these people would always tell us what we want to hear, no matter what.

12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these Steps, we tried to see if there was anyway to salvage the relationship before their scumbag lawyers convinced them to take us for all we are worth, which in theory is nothing, but in reality could be up as high as 350 million dollars. And surely, we would practice these principles in all our upcoming affairs.
