Well there was no actual interview with ET, but was an ad for the The Australian Womens Weekly, but there were some revelations – such as he cheated because he was depressed. By a puppy next time mate!Andrew Ettingshausen tonight has appeared on A Current Affair admitting to his affair with ex-team mate, Paul Mellors wife.
The Australian Women’s Weekly are reporting that Andrew Ettingshausen and his wife Monique are apparently shattered and will appear under the headline “How Can I Forgive Him” in tomorrows issue.
Ettingshausen is repentant and remorseful. The journalist who interviewed the couple, Bryce Corbett said “(The interview) was confronting, to see someone of his stature and somebody who we have only ever known as a gladiator on the football field, to dissolve into tears, as he did regularly throughout the interview, he’s absolutely a broken man”.
Andrew is still wearing his wedding band but his wife is not – at least during the photo shoot. The question is why a man married for over 20 years and with four children would do this? Apparently he has a form of depression called ‘disassociation’. Apparently if you are under a great deal of stress you can only deal with one situation at a time and nothing else, or noone else exists
ACA ask Corbett if this is a cop out? Corbett says” Obviously when you hear someone say I had an affair because I was depressed, the initial reaction will be – that’s a conveniant excuse. But he knows there is no excuse for his behaviour”
In emails to the AWW Andrew wrote “I have thrown away my whole life, all that I treasured all that I was blessed to have. I disgraced the most important person in the world to me. Monique’s eyes reflect the disgust, the hurt and the gut-wrenching betrayl that I have brought to her life.”
When ACA ask Bryce how it affected Paul Mellors family he says “His focus was on his family especially his wife.”
God now we have a bloody body language expert explaining relationships to the viewers!
How many excuses can people make up – I bet his wifes depressed! What a tool -just admit you are a cheating rat of a husband – soon there will be a term for cheating husbands. Like ASS Disorder!
