You know how Liberty Ross took her Condor of Doom on the road two nights ago and showed up at the LA premiere of Lawless looking pretty awesome? JEAH! Well, it seems like Liberty’s estranged husband also saw those photos, so he arranged a nice little pap’ing for himself too – you can see the photos here. Rupert Sanders was photographed yesterday wearing his wedding ring and smiling for the cameras, because I guess that’s all that it takes to get back with your wife after you’ve gone biscuit-diving in a Mini Cooper with a 22-year-old lip-biter. According to TMZ, Rupert is “begging” Liberty Ross to give him another chance (he is “desperate” says one source) but Liberty is “playing it cool” and she’s “non-committal”. Pro-Rupert sources say that Liberty has imposed conditions if they are to be reconciled, conditions like: no more cheating and Rupert must try to be a better husband. Pro-Rupert sources also tell TMZ that Liberty is drawing this out, and a reconciliation could possibly take “months”. But what do other sources say?
Liberty Ross is staying strong post-scandal. Although the British model, 33, hasn’t been wearing her wedding ring since her husband Rupert Sanders, 41, was caught cheating with actress Kristen Stewart, 22, a source tells Us Weekly “no decisions have been made” about their 15-year relationship.
The Snow White and the Huntsman director Sanders was photographed engaged in a steamy makeout session with Snow White actress Stewart on July 17. Ross learned of her husband’s affair the week before Us Weekly’s exclusive photos emerged on July 24.
“Nothing has been filed. It’s still too early to tell what will happen,” the source tells Us. “She is talking to and seeing Rupert now for the kids, but as far as the marriage she’s still processing everything that happened.”
The former British Vogue cover girl shares daughter Skyla, 7, and son Tennyson, 5, with Sanders. The director did issue a public apology to his wife in a statement to Us on July 25, saying, “I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family.”
As for the future of their relationship, the source tells Us, “No decisions have been made. It’s been very hard on her dealing with this and all the media attention. She is very strong and working through it and keeping private about it.”
Ross stepped out on the red carpet Wednesday for her first time since the scandal. Looking stylish in a silky green button-down shirt, Ross smiled for the cameras at the Hollywood premiere of Lawless. The only thing missing from her ensemble? Her wedding ring.
The one thing that bothered me about this story is the “It’s been very hard on her dealing with this and all the media attention” quote. I mean… Liberty has been courting the press like a PR professional – keeping her mouth shut, blogging a cryptic Condor of Doom, not issuing any public statements, but still making sure that she’s photographed looking great (and with a crucifix to ward off trampires), and she just walked a red carpet of a premiere for a film she had nothing to do with. It’s okay to admit (and admire) that Liberty is playing the media, and that she’s working the media’s attention to her advantage. We don’t have to pretend like she’s bothered by the attention.
Meanwhile, Page Six also has a “How Liberty is Doing” story this morning too. Page Six’s source says, “She won’t hide at home. Liberty has shown incredible grace going through a difficult situation where all the intimate details are very public. She is a very emotionally smart woman. She knows she can take her time and make her own decision, one that would be the best for her and her family, and not be persuaded by what other people, and the media, think of her and the situation.” Page Six also says that Rupert and Liberty are undergoing marriage counseling right now, and that it’s very much “unclear” as to whether she will ultimately forgive Rupert. The source sounded hopeful, though: “One thing that is clear is that before this, Rupert and Liberty had a wonderful relationship . . . One affair does not erase a 10-year history and many shared experiences together. It is just whether they are strong enough to weather it.” Ugh. I hope she doesn’t take him back.
