Born to cheat: Springsteen does it again, but no one seems to care

In the past few months, cheating men seem to be more popular than complaining about healthcare or talking about Kate Gosselin's hair. First, there was Tiger's naughty texts to his zillion mistresses, then there was Jesse's white supremacist strippers, and now, according to reports by the New York Post, Bruce Springsteen (AKA The Boss) is joining the ranks of the unfaithful many, and weirdly, no one seems to care.

According to court papers filed by the alleged mistresses' soon-to-be ex-husband, the affair of housewife Ann Kelly, 45, and The Boss, 60, started back in 2005. The two met while sweating it out at a New Jersey gym and apparently the casual chitchat turned into a romance-complete with front row concert tickets, rehearsal serenades, lunches, and eventually a full-fledged sexual liaison.

Ann's husband, Arthur Kelly, filed for a divorce last year alleging that his wife and the singer engaged in extra-marital somethings, while Arthur was in the hospital with heart troubles (ouch). According to the Post story, Bruce joined Ann at the Turning Point restaurant in Long Branch, New Jersey, while her husband had open-heart surgery in Cleveland (double ouch). The divorce is expected to be settled this week.

Bruce's rendezvous with the redheaded woman (who, some say is a spitting image of his current wife, Patti Scialfa, who he cheated with on his first wife, actress Julianne Phillips) tellingly isn't his first bout of infidelity. So, is Bruce trying to relive his glory days with a Jersey girl? Will he own up to the alleged affair and walk like a man or is he blinded by the light?

And, perhaps, the most interesting question of all: While Tiger and Jesse both, as we know, have received a public flogging, why has the media let serial cheater Springsteen largely off the hook? Earlier this week, called the singer "the classiest celebrity cheater" and suggested he's put the romance back into tabloid scandal. We can't help but wonder if there's ever anything romantic about being unfaithful to one's wife.
