Didn't seem at all telling to me. . .but then I think Tessa is way to classy and smart for David Pelletier.

So did I until the last couple of days... :shuffle:

The divorce was pretty much an open sercret, but when rumours were posted earlier many people were like "I know for a fact that this isn't true bla bla" even though half of the skating world already knew... The whole David&Tessa "rumour" was not invented by someone to destroy her public image, but is based on facts....anyways...who cares, it's her private life. (I don't think David is a good choice for her though....)
The media did a good job so far to cover the whole thing up. During the Olympics, her family wasn't shown a few times before or after the performance (not sure which one) because Pelletier was sitting with them.

Why is the media covering it up? Is it because they want to protect them from scandal?

Anyway, it was pretty obvious to me a few months ago that Sale and Pelletier weren't together anymore because we could see at the Thin Ice competition that they weren't wearing their wedding rings like they used to.

To be fair, he's been separated from Jamie for a year and a half, so it's not quite as skeezy as if he was stepping out on her, though he's supposedly also been with Jessica Dube in that time (IIRC from :sekret: he's the real reason she and Bryce broke up...)

Does anyone else think Jaime Sale is aging badly? Look at her face when she's not wearing heavy makeup....sorry but it doesn't look good and I think she looks a LOT older than what she is. When I look at her something stands out about her that is not flattering. Her face kind of looks aneorexic and wrinkly. Although, when she's performing on the ice and has all that professional skating makeup on her, she does look much better. Perhaps, David has lost interest in her because of this and has fallen out of love with her...it would make sense why he's with Tessa now.

I don't understand why the media is covering it up. Do you think if it was made public during the Olympics, it could have made it harder for them to win gold? It's not fair that the media plays out other celebrities personal lives on national TV, why not the same for Tessa and David? Let me guess, because they are media darlings in the skating world? If I were Jaime I'd tell the media about their relationship to avoid looking like the bad apple in the marriage. A lot of people already dislike Jaime, the divorce will give them even more reason to hate and blame her. But I can understand why she would stay silent and that would probably be for the sake of her son. What the hell is Tessa doing with David anyways? I wonder how Scott and the rest of the skating world feel about this, knowing that Tessa is involved with David. Makes you wonder if she's as sweet and innocent as the media makes her out to be....doesn't look like it now.

It looks like the media covered up some things about Sale & Pelletier's relationship too. It says in a number of articles about their divorce today that Pelletier left his first wife for Sale, but the media appears to have kept that quiet during their Love Story years.

Perhaps it is in the media's interest to portray these couples as perfect sweethearts so that it creates a positive interest in the sport and because they want to stay on good terms with the athletes involved.

:duh::

Of course!! She's looking older so he lost interest, fell out of love with her, and found himself a prettier, younger gal.

:duh::

If she had been smart she would have just have had some work done and then they would still be together. Don't all women know that botox is the key to ever-lasting love? :)

Though David Pelletier is starting to look a bit wrinkly and non-youthful himself. Isn't he fortunate to be among the one-half of our species that doesn't have to perpetually beautiful?

Jamie still looks beautiful and young, I totally disagree. I hope that's not the reason for their break up, but with rumors of David going for such a younger woman, who knows. Leaving your wife and child based on looks is no excuse for leaving a marriage, that's as superficial as it gets. I'm tired of so many being so obsessed with aestethics. When you have a baby, that child comes first no matter what and you try to do the best you can to save that marriage for the child's sake.

As for the media covering up scandal because they're afraid to tarnish Tessa's image, I would agree with that opinion.

This thread has all the potential to become a trainwreck. :watch:

Not surprised about the news, actually, it was pretty much common knowledge for a long time.

I mean I could be totally wrong, I was just saying she looks older and could be a factor in the divorce. David would never admit it but his actions speak for themselves. Even if they both decided it was over 18 months ago, I think he could have made a wiser choice and started dating someone closer to his age. We don't see Jaime dating Scott or anyone 15 years younger than her :lol:. I don't think Jaime is ugly, but I was just stating the obvious, she looks noticably different than 8 years ago. If Tessa and David were to still be together 10 years from now I bet she'll be in the same position Jaime is in now. David will be done with and over her just like his 2 previous wives. He can't stay committed. If you think back even during their skating years it was well known that their partnership had been rocky at times. I think they even split up once before they got married. I also remember an interview after they had gotten engaged in which David had made a comment about hoping the marriage would last but nothing is for certain (something like that) and then Jaime yelling, "It better!" I think their relationship was mainly based on their skating partnership and their Olympic Glory. They were young and had accomplished something no other Canadian pairs skaters had ever done; win an Olympic Gold Medal. Their entire lives they had been working to fullfill that dream and they did it. At that time, what more could they have asked for? They were in love but probably for the wrong reasons and perhaps their love was centered mainly around that gold medal.

I hope David didn't cheat on Jaime but then why else would they be divorcing? They had been through hell before experiencing a horrible scandal that played out in the media. The stress of marriage and raising a child should have been a walk in the park compared to other things they've experienced. They've been seperated for the last 18 months, which means they must have not been getting along well even before then. Still, it doesn't make sense that David would leave his wife and child and hook up with Tessa, just because his life was stressful. I thought he knew there'd be ups and downs considering he'd been married once before. It does kind of look fishy and makes you wonder if he really dumped Jaime for a younger girl. If Jaime was moody and mean to him, it's still no excuse...she's always been that way and he still married her. So, he can't use that as an excuse; face it, he had to have cheated.

I'm not sure at this point they should even skate together after what I've seen this season. David looks truly unhappy on the ice: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=5517593&id=508943271&fbid=42 http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=5517593&id=508943271&fbid=42#!/photo.php?pid=5517596&id=508943271&fbid=429252273271 and there's more photo evidence through out the CSOI tour! It's :( sad to see what they have become. I was so hoping they'd be able to work it out.

I think David is a bit of a douche too, and after finding out that he left his wife for another woman, he's not the type of guy I would want to be with.

But I admit that he can be sexy sometimes, and perhaps it is that French sexiness that some women can't resist.

Now I'm laughing how naive some of you were when in some old thread you hysterically squalled that it couldn't be true about Tessa and David, and you knew it for sure, and she was an angel which couldn't be involved in a relationship with a married man who was 15 years older than her and bla bla bla:lol:
Seriously, it's time to wake up from your pink dreams and expectations about your sweethearts and face a life what it is. Really it looks like the majority of this board are teenagers.
