Last night, I received a private TWEET from Rupert Murdoch – that after months of agonizing separation, he was filing for divorce from his wife Wendi Deng.
Even though I couldn’t hear his voice, I could tell he was crying.
I’ve known Rupert for many many years. More years that his third wife has been alive.
Yet, I always knew, even before she was born, that Wendi Deng Murdoch was the person for him.
It’s none of our business why someone else’s marriage ends.
I do know that if the marriage of Rupert Murdoch and Wendi Deng Murdoch can’t survive - there isn’t much hope for anyone else.
They were ideal for each other.
Equals in intellect.
She was beautiful.
He was rich.
And while we all cry a bit today for Rupert, we can bravely dry those tears tomorrow because Rupert will land on his feet.
He didn’t tell me why the marriage fell apart. There must have been something in those years of wire tapping her phone that became the final straw.
Chin up, Rupe, I’ll be here whenever you need a friend.
I’ll see you at Sun Valley. I’ll save you ONE STOOL at the bar.
