Bachelor Contestant Says She Had Affair With Bulls’ Carlos Boozer

You'll never believe this one, but there there's a story making the rounds that an athlete - an ATHLETE! - had relations with a woman who was not his significant other. That story comes via Michelle Money, contestant on The Bachelor, who says she had an affair with then-Utah Jazz (now Chicago Bulls) power forward Carlos Boozer in 2009.
And if this doesn't shock you enough, more, from the New York Daily News:
At the time, Boozer was still legally married to his wife, Cindy, also known as CeCe, with whom he has three children.
The couple first filed divorce petitions in March 2009, but according to reports, attempted a reconciliation several months later before starting divorce proceedings again in August 2010.
So, not only did an athlete supposedly have an affair - he (horror of horrors!) did it while he was still technically married! Who ever would have expected such behavior?! Here's what Money herself said to Life & Style on this whole situation:
"I should never have been so naive to assume what I was told was true," the reality star said. "I'm not trying to shy away from the fact that he was still married. I don't put that on Carlos. I don't put that on anyone but myself."
"All I can do is try to do better with my life," she said. "I screwed up. But I can only try to do the best I can."
That's right - if this is all true, not only did an athlete engage in relations with a woman out of wedlock, not only was he technically married to someone else - but he might have also been dishonest about whether or not he was married. Consider my worldview shattered.
