There is a new book being published about Carly Simon and includes lots and lots of tales of all the guys she put under her spell. What makes this book a little different is that the author is claiming that Carly is the one who told him all the stories so if they are not true, then blame her. Stephen Davis wrote the book and he has written some really good tell all books about musicians in his time. In the book about Carly he says that Carly says that while Jeremy Irons was married, Carly seduced him and convinced him to have an affair with her. First of all, it takes two people to have an affair and just because Carly might have pushing for it, Jeremy could have said the word no. It is an amazing word and if more people used it, the divorce rate would probably not be quite so high. Of course if I used the word no more frequently then I would eat way less fries than I do. "Do you want fries with that?" You know what you do not hear any more? Do you want to Super Size that? Morgan Spurlock got rid of that. I wonder how long it will be before someone brings it back. At some point it will return. It has too. Everyone likes everything bigger and bigger.

Anyway, back to the affair. It happened in 1984 and Carly had just divorced James Taylor because of his coke and heroin problem so she was single. Jeremy was not.
