Miner mistress update: Perhaps monogamy simply isn’t in the Chilean miner’s blood. Everyone has been making a fuss about Yonni Barrios whose wife learned about his mistress of 10 years while he was trapped. But there are apparently more sordid scenarios concerning Chilean miners and mistresses out there.
According to reports, another Barrios – Carlos – who was rescued yesterday has a five-year-old son with his wife and his girlfriend of seven months is pregnant.
Another miner is said to have four women vying for his attention (and possible book and movie royalties): a wife he’s still married to, his current live-in girlfriend, a third woman who claims to have had his son and another who says she is having an affair with him.
You know Hollywood is fighting for the movie rights. There should be an underground scene where the miners are discussing whether they are more afraid of dying in the hole or when they emerge and find all of their wives and mistresses in one place.
