Over the years there have been several cheating scandals. Some of those scandals have involved hookers, some have involved strippers and some have involved everyday men and women looking for comfort in someone else’s arms. At the end of the day, each scandal has led to heartbreak but we’re not here to judge the circumstances behind the events. What we are here to do is judge whether or not the men in question made huge mistakes by cheating on their wives with less attractive, less appealing women.
Here is Manolith’s Top 10 Wives who are substantially hotter than their husbands’ mistresses:
1. Elin Nordegren
Elin Nordegren’s world came crashing in last November when she (and the entire world) learned that her husband Tiger Woods was a serial cheater. Regardless, Elin may find some comfort in knowing that she was, by far, hotter than each and every one of Tigers 19 mistresses. For the sake of argument, we chose to include a photo of Tiger’s #1 mistress Rachel Uchitel to prove our point.
2. Brandi Glanville
Brandi Glanville is the former wife of Eddie Cibrian who is now engaged in a serious relationship with country singer Leann Rimes. It was widely reported that Eddie and Leann were having an affair while they worked on their d-list movie Northern Lights. At the end of the day, Eddie did Brandi a favor. After all, she’s sexier than Rimes and she deserves a better man than Eddie Cibrian.
3. Vanessa Bryant
Vanessa Bryant is the wife of basketball player Kobe Bryant. Vanessa stood by her man during one of the biggest scandals in sports history (before Tiger Woods, that is) when her husband was not only accused of having an affair but was also accused of sexual assault against 19-year-old Katelyn Faber. Kobe eventually admitted to cheating on Vanessa but adamantly denied the sexual assualt. Vanessa and Kobe are currently still married and trying hard to put the memories of his mistress behind them. We would be too if our mistress looked like her.
4. Uma Thurman
Uma Thurman is the gorgeous blonde hair, blue eyed, 6ft model who most men would kill to date. Unfortunately, Uma’s husband Ethan Hawke didn’t feel the same way. Instead he crushed Uma’s heart by cheating on her with their nanny Ryan Shawhughes, who he later married and had a child with.
5. Reese Witherspoon
Reese Witherspoon – also known as America’s Sweetheart - was heartbroken after she announced her split from Ryan Phillippe. Everyone thought Ryan and Reese were the Hollywood couple with lasting power. All was well until Ryan’s romance with Abbie Cornish went from on-screen to off-screen fast. At the end of the day, no one knows whether Abbie and Ryan were getting hot and heavy while he was still married to Reese but Ryan and Abbie’s relationship conveniently heated up as soon as he and Reese were divorced.
6. Christie Brinkley
Christie Brinkley is one of the world’s hottest (and most famous) supermodels. At 56 her smokin’ hot body and age-defying features rival most 20-year-olds – which is why we can’t figure out why Peter Cook (who is no catch himself, by the way) would cheat on his wife with this 19-year-old homewrecker.
7. Sienna Miller
Sienna Miller is the former fiance of actor Jude Law. Jude Law and Sienna Miller initially began dating when he cheated on his then-wife with Miller. Not long after, Sienna got a taste of her own medicine when she caught Jude cheating on her with their nanny Daisy Wright. Classic. Doesn’t the nanny fantasy usually involve a strikingly hot French-speaking seductress with thigh high stockings and stilettos? We thought so too. How Jude ended up with this (see photo below) we’ll never know.
8. Elizabeth Hurley
Elizabeth Hurley is the 5’9″ model who was married to one of the most charming men in the world. At least that’s what everyone thought until her then-husband Hugh Grant was caught cheating on Hurley with celebrity prostitute Divine Brown. Needless to say, Hugh Grant was embarassed but poor Elizabeth was more embarassed – for getting cheated on with someone so completely unattractive.
9. Sandra Bullock
There’s really nothing to say here other than what the hell was he thinking? We’re pretty sure Jesse James kicks himself each and every day for ruining his relationship with one of hottest, sexiest, most successful women in the world. And, to think, he threw it all away for this (see photo of Michelle McGee below).
10. Sophia Bush
Sophia Bush is the star of the CW show One Tree Hill and the former wife of costar Chad Michael Murray. Chad and Sophia married and then quickly divorced after Murray’s feeling for his other costar (who was simply an extra on the show) Kenzie Dalton. Kenzie is the sister of Miss USA 2009 Kristen Dalton but her pageant-like look does not impress us. Chad made a huge mistake leaving Sophia to pursue a relationship with this homewrecking ice queen.
