For the other woman, few happy endings

(Continued)

That meant not exploiting the situation for money (she passed on millions from Playboy and others), taking personal responsibility for her role in the affair, and asking for forgiveness from her family, friends and God. A "devastated" Rice went underground for seven years in which she renewed her Christian faith, married, moved to Washington and looked for a job.

"People told me I'd never been taken seriously," she said. But she was hired by the anti-pornography group Enough Is Enough, where she's now president and an acknowledged expert on Internet safety issues — she frequently testifies before Congress and has produced a film series on the subject.

While Rice Hughes has thrived professionally, other upbeat endings for the Other Woman usually involved marriage. Argentine beauty Maria Belen Chapur is now engaged to former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford, despite the fact their affair effectively ended his political career. And remember Suzy Wetlaufer? The former Harvard Business Review editor had an affair with departing GE head Jack Welch while writing a profile of him — and lost her job, but went on to marry and co-author books with the multimillionaire corporate executive.

And Broadwell? The ambitious first-time author is married with two small sons. She and her doctor husband celebrated her 40th birthday in Washington, Va.

But a party for friends was canceled; she disabled her Facebook account just hours before the affair went public Friday and has given no interviews . . . yet.
