Any woman who has ever been cheated on could probably identify in some way with Clara Harris, as they watched Oprah’s interview with her yesterday.

The shock of Clara seeing her husband leaving a hotel with his mistress after leading her to believe he was ending the affair, pushed Clara Harris over the edge.

“There are 26 million potential Clara Harrises out there - wives with cheating husbands who have no idea their husbands are having an affair. “ says Ruth Houston, infidelity expert and author of Is He Cheating on You? – 829 Telltale Signs. “Any woman who suddenly finds herself in a similar situation, could react the way Clara Harris did. When matters of the heart are involved, it’s easy to lose control.”
