Or maybe not: The first lady of South Carolina recently sought to have her name trademarked after it was revealed that her husband was having an affair with a woman in South America. The July 2, filing of the trademark was intended for items to be sold by an online retailer. She has a book due out next year.
I guess one could say, Why not cash in instead of slink away like most scorned wives? In addition, if you have a book coming out, you want your name protected.
But, on another level, this just feels creepy. It's not quite the same as John Wayne Bobbit or something, you know, cashing in on something tragic, but that is the first thing that came to mind when I read this headline.
