Just in case you thought the Falwell, Jr., saga couldn’t get any trashier, any more cartoony, it now comes out that Falwell is a terrific jerk because his wife had an affair with — Get Ready! — the pool boy.
Jerry Falwell Jr., suspended as president of Virginia’s Christian-focused Liberty University after a string of embarrassing acts, said that he has suffered depression caused by a former family friend who had an affair with his wife and who has been threatening to expose it.
Seriously: The Falwell’s are ripe for a gothic-trash saga by Susan Howatch.
