For Love or Money

Buzz, Love

A women destroys her marriage for the chance to win $100,000.

How far would you go for fame and fortune? That’s the question we’re asking ourselves after Lauren Cleri’s appearance on The Moment of Truth. The aspiring model confessed to 8 million viewers that she thought she should be married to her ex-boyfriend and had cheated on her husband Frank many times.

Lauren ultimately walked away from the show empty-handed and, according to the NY Post, is looking to get back together with her husband. Frank (who knew about Lauren’s affairs and was planning on splitting any winnings with his wife) is understandably reluctant to reconcile.

We’re just left wondering: Is there any amount of money that would make up for the emotional damage—not just for Lauren and Frank, but also for all their family and friends who had to watch their marriage disintegrate on national television?
