Sandra Bullock and The Devil Wears Prada

“Let me know when your whole life goes up in smoke. Means it’s time for a promotion.” Stanley Tucci as Nigel in “The Devil Wears Prada”

This was the first thing that came to mind when a friend and I were discussing Sandra Bullock’s current situation with her appropriately-named scandalous husband, Jesse James. Now, you know this is not a gossip blog so I have nothing much to say about the intricate details of their situation, but I will say that I find the parallels between Bullock’s personal life going up in smoke and winning that Oscar interesting.

Could it be that Jesse James has been blocking Sandra’s blessing all these years and now that what has been done in the dark is coming into the light she is being provided a way of escape, not only to save her life but to regenerate her career? I don’t know, only time will tell. Just thought I’d put that out there. This is just another one of those situations when women must know what they are worthy of in relationships. You can’t ever be so hard-pressed for love that you are blind-sided–pun sooo intended–by a person’s real intent and heart. As a dear friend quoted, “When someone shows you their arse (she said the real thing) kick it. Or, “When someone shows you who they really are, believe it.” And might I add, after you believe, keep it moving. They are not changing for you.

That’s all.

  1. The quote in the third to last sentence is one of my fav’s! I first heard it when Oprah quoted it on her show a few years ago. The problem is, I think many times people only show you what they want you to see, particularly in a relationship. It’s hard for me to believe that all of these women that have been in the lime light lately due to their husbands infidelity chose to look the other way when their men were showing their true selves(maybe they did, idk). Alot of times people hide many things about themselves from many people, including their significant other. Also, I think that sometimes women are faced with trying to find the balance. You know your self worth, but in the same breath, no one is perfect. That guy you love so deeply is going to have flaws! So he may in fact be showing you who he really is but he is only human, right? He may have some character flaws right? Don’t we all? Just food for thought!
