RQ607 Blog Readers: 'I couldn’t confess to my best friend I slept with his wife!'

I’ve often warned against tempting fate. When you have a relationship and are getting on fairly comfortably with your partner, it’s almost fatal to the relationship to bring in a third party to live with you under any guise. That is why, no matter how repulsive we find it, male domestics continue to dip into the same pots as their masters and male partners throw caution to the wind and pant after the maids!

When Musibau came back from the US years back, the first person he got in touch with was Gboye, his friend of several years. I’d known them together even before they travelled abroad and when Musibau called that Gboye was throwing a welcome party for him, I gladly attended. Gboye’s wife, Rita, and the mother of their three  children, was the perfect hostess, she seemed to get on with Musibau, who she hadn’t met until his return.

REALLY? 'Fake Saudi princess' Sara Al Amoudi is told she can keep £14m property empire

                          'Imposter': ‘Saudi princess’ Sara Al Amoudi (pictured left) has won the right to keep a £14million property empire – despite claims she is really a prostitute who invented her royal identity
Sara Al Amoudi is being pursued by Ian Paton and Amanda Clutterbuck, who say she duped them into signing over six flats in London's West End and should be forced to hand them back. But the Court of Appeal has rejected the couple's plea, saying the continuing mystery about her identity - including claims she is an African illegal immigrant - is irrelevant to their case. A judge said there was no evidence Miss Al Amoudi used her 'royal' identity to persuade Mr Paton - who she says was her secret lover - and Miss Clutterbuck to sign over the flats, and refused to give them leave to appeal against a ruling made last year that said she could keep the properties. Miss Al Amoudi, who claims to be a strict Muslim, is pictured in a nightclub (main) and leaving court in her veil (inset).  Meet the parties below + photos of the properties;
