It's Time to Feel Weird About Simon Cowell Again
4/8/2014 3:00 PM PDT, by Emily Trainham
So it's been a while since Simon Cowell had an affair with his friend's wife and impregnated her, but you know what? It's still kind of weird. He seems really happy, and that's great, obviously, but it's just never going to not be weird. It's going to be weird always. And now that Simon is actually giving interviews about it, it's going to be extra special weird. Something to look forward to, right?
On becoming a father:
“In a weird way I probably needed that, I really did. You can start to live a slightly abnormal life and there is no question of doubt I was heading down that path. Too many late-night phone calls. Too obsessed with things.”
On hooking up with his friend's wife:
“I regret that part. But then of course you have a baby and you look at the baby and you kinda go ‘this is what happened from it.' In this situation you are not going to come out of this well because of the circumstances. It is not something I am proud of or wanted to happen in terms of hurting anyone. It just happened. You have to deal with it and man up to it. You have to accept the responsibility and the criticism. All I can say is, my advice to you is if it happens to you, you just have to deal with it a day at a time and own up to your responsibilities.”
On how his life has changed:
"My life has changed, but I am probably more focused on what I am doing now than I was a year ago. Maybe because it puts things in perspective having two people in my life who I am responsible for. There were times last year when I would live in two rooms, y’know kitchen and bedroom in your house. It is a weird existence when you live on your own. On the phone all night, blah blah blah. Now the house is full of people, it has become a home rather than a house.”
He still hangs out with his exes though:
“They probably thought I was going to become a different person, but the truth is nothing changed. We are still friends, Sinitta is a godmother, Mezhgan came over recently. Terri was there the other night. Can we all go on holiday on the yacht? Why not.”
See what I mean? Good, happy, but weird. Fundamentally, unchangeably weird. Oh, and speaking of weirdness ...
