Banking on that hundredfold.
Yesterday afternoon I flipped on the television to check the weather channel - it has been so hot and humid I wanted to see if another storm was headed our way. The TV was set to the Fox channel and guess who was on - Fr. Cutie and his new talk show, The Fr. Albert Show. I hadn't realized his talk-show was airing on Fox - I expected it would be on Telemundo or something. Yet there he was in his dog collar, interviewing a young woman living off her mother. He feigned shock at the $800 designer shoes the daughter charged on her mom's Visa, as if he doesn't know what designer costs. I quickly clicked away after listening to the Jerry Springer-style guffaws from the audience. What a sleaze show.
It seems likely to me Cutie became enamored of his own celebrity, got used to the income, and followed the money. I doubt very much that the 'hooking-up' is what initially led him astray.
It's his life. After all, he has a family to raise now.
