Jane's Revenge

This huge billboard occupies a prominent 'place of honour' in Birmingham City Centre.


Hell they say hath no fury like a woman scorned in love!!! I couldnt believe my eyes when I opened 'The Sun' a daily newspaper this morning and saw the above poster. A furious wife's revenge on her husband who she suspected was having an affair and later on, it was confirmed that he was indeed having an affair with her 'best friend'!!!! She burned his clothes, changed the locks and emptied their joint bank account to pay for the ad on this giant billboard in BIRMINGHAM CITY CENTRE!!! Revenge is sweet and best served cold they say!! This news about Jane's story and her revenge is really making the headlines all around the world right now - Sky News, Birmingham Radio - 96.4 BRMB - apparently she began emailing thier breakfast presenter - Caroline Martin in September after she suspected her husband was having an affair!! The emails are available on the web if anyone is interested in reading them. You can listen to Jane's story also as discussed on Caroline's Breakfast show on BRMB from the link on Caroline's Blog.
I wouldnt want to be in his hugely humiliated shoes or her heartbroken shoes right now either!!!
Her Story can also be found on MySpace. Maybe 'Mark & Shelley' will start a blog to give us their own side of the story too hmmn?

This story has brought about a lot of food for thought!! Was Jane's action justified? Does Jane deserve commendation for what she has done or did she overreact? What about Mark? Do his actions justify the punishment meted out to him? What are your views on partners cheating on each other and how far do you think is the limit on a partner's revenge? I'd love to hear all about your opinions!!

P.S:
Baba Alaayee - Hell hath no fury than a woman scorned in love!! LOL!!! I know you're going to get ur back at me for this dig but I couldnt resist it!!! LOL!!!

  3. Just imagine driving along the street and seeing your name plastered all over a billboard, and written on it was what u did last month. Eyahhh...what's that proverb? There is no truth that will not be revealed under the sun.

  4. never hurt a woman that bad. OK let me rephrase that. never hurt a woman at all. Damn, if I were the man I'd shoot myself in the balls at least it would hurt less.

  5. @Azuka: Congrats on being first today!! A Mcdonalds meal coming up for you!!! LOL!!!

    More than a shocker!! His life savings are gone all bcos of 'Shelley'!!!

    @funmi: Hurt and Anger can cause one to take extreme measures. I wonder if she has a job or was a full time houewife and if she hasnt a job, how she's going to survive now she's cleared their joint account to pay for the billboard.

    @jaycee: Yes!! To bad she didnt bother to put his full name or add their last names for 'full effects'. LOL!!! That would have been a bigger shocker and more shameful!! Yes my dear - Every affair under this sun will be revealed, uncovered or exposed eventually!!!

    @temmy tayo: speaking from the angle of a wounded lady. Hmmmn, still hurting I see? Would anyone in ur family have supported u if u had done this to ex?



    @tyrex: Shoot urself in the balls? U're joking right?

    @smoothvibes: It is mad - really buzzing!!!

    @mphalele: Crazy girl!! You would, wouldnt you? LOL!!!

  6. @Calabargal: They wont have supported me but then i am just glad she had the guts to show him what it means to hurt!!!

  7. lol...actually that billboard was part of promotion for a show on courttv. they got the public good though!

    women can be so vindictive, so i wouldn't be surprised if it were to happen.

  8. The husband and bestfriend r lucky that she didn't get a pic of both of them in "action" and put it on the billboard.
    But u know wat i don't think doing wat she did was meant to get her husband to come back to her. wat kind of stupid bestfriend does she have???

    ReplyDelete
  9. lol. Jane's husband and friend are really screwed then. Hahaha. But haba, they just couldn't find other partners? That really sucks sha.

  10. This actually did happen in the Los Angeles apparently, sorry guys but it is very very funny!

    Did you hear the one about the woman who sold her husband's car (it was a porsche or something) for £1 on ebay on the condition that the person came to pick it up immediately!

    Funny post anyway.

  11. seing as no surnames were put up - it doesn't really affect them cause the pblic really dont know who they are. I thought I had heard something like this or seen it a while back - but maybe Im wrong - in 2005.

    Sometimes there is no justification for the actions of a hurt person. its just sad that it had to happen to them.

  12. Na wah o, but that is a bit extreme.

    ReplyDelete
  13. @Temmy Tayo: OK

    @belle: This aint no court TV promo girl!! This is real life action!!

    @angie: I dont think she has any intention of taking her husband back either. But u can find out from the horses mout at myspace.

    @vera: No they couldnt find other partners. That why they landed in this hot soup.

    @vicki: It seems these wounded wives are atking action the whole world over. There was a banner over the M25 sometime ago also about some love rats.

    I heard about the ebay porshe car too. The guy said he like Jodie Marsh and didnt realise his partner was listening to the radio show also and she put the porsche up in a rage.

    @LOASCM: My dear - u dont know investigative journalism in the UK!! Give the press some time. As long as there is no gagging order from the courts preventing the identities of the parties involved being made known, they'll offer huge sums to friends to tell all and reveal their identities and some friend will certainly fall for the bait!!!

  14. Lol.. the woman kills me... different strokes for different folks... I don't think I'd do that... but that's me looking on it right now.. you never know what you'll do till your in the situation... i feel her pain... I might do something more drastic that involves immediate and longer lasting pain... actually.. you got me thinking babe on different punishments to mete out to a cheating spouse.. lol..

    ReplyDelete
  15. I think it's great. Any man or woman who cheats on his or her spouse has a problem. Having a cheating spouse hurts.

  16. Crazy woman. I can understand her pain, but people might to listen to his point of view. Who knows what she was like at home? Not saying it IS her fault or that she should not be mad at the betrayal (I would be), but it is also wrong to convict him until you know his side. If he was just out for some naked fun he was wrong, if he fell in love...well that happens.
    I wonder if he has grounds to sue her for burning his clothes and putting up the billboard.

  17. I dont think Jane should have gone to those extreme measures.I think a lot of the money she could have had and needed when she was single was wasted to pay for the bill board.

  18. Wow!!!!!
    Eversince i was manhandled by a knife wielding ex, i have chosen to be very careful with women...

    ReplyDelete
  19. am not sure the billboard would really get at them,there are many marks and shelleys, their affair is probably not discrete anyway. i think she would get at him more with the empty account, but then i hope she has another account somewhere or else she would be hurting herself more by spending all she has on that.

    ReplyDelete
  20. She should have spent it on a trip to some exotic island. Not fair on her though. Girls be careful of the people you let become friends with you.

  26. I think jane over reacted...there are two sides to every story...while I do not condone cheating, I think that going to that extreme does not really get my sympathy. It will be nice to hear her hubby's side...plus, she has ended up making him a celebrity...no publicity is bad publicity they say.

  28. I would have used that money to go to some really exotic, hot place - maybe Brazil, gotten my grove back and brought my latin lover back with me.
    Pictures would have sealed the deal. If you're going that far go all the way.....let's be able to ID them.

  34. He deserved much worse than a mere billboard. He broke his solemn vow to her, showing that he's just out for himself and any woman who would go after him is an idiot because she, too, will be dumped and cheated on. He is a loser and I only wish that there weren't so many women out there who have such little self respect that they gravitate towards these morons who don't deserve love, attention, sex or anything else. The other woman disgusts me; she is obviously a needy person who has to have a man validate her.
