Extra marital affair are not uncommon and certainly nothing new. In fact it is fair to say that since the beginning of time there have been people who have cheated on their partner.
In recent years there has been no end to the number of celebrities who have been caught with their pants down so to speak. People like Hugh Grant and Tiger Woods were both caught having an affair. Even politicians like Bill Clinton and Arnold Schwarzenegger have been found cheating on their wives. Here are the world’s most famous mistresses.
The world’s greatest sex symbol, Marilyn Monroe starts our list of the top 10 mistresses and comes in at number 10. Some people still actually speculate to whether or not Marilyn Monroe was actually a mistress while others swear by it and conspiracy theorists everywhere still believe that she was murdered for knowing too much about John F Kennedy and his death. While deciding if she was a mistress or not just consider that when she visited JFK at Palm Springs, the day after singing happy birthday, Mr President, he made sure that his wife was not in attendance and he even made sure he brought this up in his initial conversation with her. It does not take much sense to speculate what actually went on in Palm Springs.
Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall
Most people, myself included, will never even begin to understand why Prince Charles decided to have an affair with Camilla when he was married, therefore having sex with a hot woman such as Princess Diana. There really is no comparison. Camilla is far from attractive or glamorous whereas Diana was hot property and a sex symbol with a stunning figure, sexy long legs and a fashion icon. Maybe Prince Charles was just trying to be like his great grandfather or his great great grandfather by having an affair or maybe Camilla was dynamite between the sheets. The answer is anyone’s guess.
Anne Boleyn was the mistress of Henry VIII and the reason that England is no longer Roman Catholic. We all know the tales of Henry VIII and his many wives. When Henry VIII wanted to divorce his first wife on the grounds that she could not provide him with a male heir. The pope of the time refused Henry VIII the right to divorce Catherine of Aragon and marry his mistress, Anne Boleyn. Not to be beat by the pope and is power Henry VIII went about removing the pope’s power in England and had his marriage annulled so he was free to marry his mistress, Anne Boleyn. Not that this was of much benefit to Anne Boleyn as Henry VIII decided to have her beheaded for treason.
