In the wake of Shania Twain's engagement announcement yesterday, it got me to thinking about her and the whole breakup of her marriage. I think we would all agree that the European paps can be just as sneaky as their American counterparts. Tabloids in Europe will even go to more extreme measures to get a great story. I noticed in US Weekly's story about Shania's engagement that they say that Mutt left Shania for the woman who was married to the guy Shania is now marrying.
Remember when that woman, Marie-Anne Thiebaud, denied having an affair with Mutt. Well has anyone ever shown a picture of them together since? Everyone over here just swallowed Shania's story without doing any followup. Maybe the tabloids in Europe did a followup, but you would think it would have made some headlines here or at least a picture. But there has been nothing. What if Shania was the one who had the affair, but paid some hush money so she could look like the victim. I just think the whole thing smells kind of fishy.
Shania was off the radar, living in Switzerland and not having much of a career and then wham, Mutt supposedly has an affair, she moves back to North America, has a boyfriend, releases an album and has all this free publicity backing her up. Hmmm.
