    Gabrielle explained, back then, she wasn't "getting any wife of the year awards" because she felt she was "entitled" to infidelity, especially since she “was paying all the bills."

    When ET's Nischelle Turner asked her about the backlash at the Season 3 premiere of Truth Be Told, Gabrielle said what I was thinking.

    "If your gonna get your panties in a twist about something I've been talking about since 2005 — in not one but two New York Times best-selling books — at least listen to the whole thing," she said. "Just so you know where your anger actually is."

    The topic of her past marriage is discussed in her autobiographical books, You Got Anything Stronger, and We're Going to Need More Wine, so it's a little silly that people are fussing over a soundbite.

    I think Gabrielle always delivers a good read.
