Caiya denies reports of extramarital affair


TV personality Caiya Kawasaki, 50, gave the press more than they bargained for this week at an event to publicize the Japanese release of the movie "The Lincoln Lawyer."

The movie tells the story of a sleazy lawyer working out of his car, who has a crisis of conscience when he is called upon to represent a wealthy client who rapes a prostitute and has a foolproof plan to beat the system.

Reporters at the event, however, had more than the movie on their minds. Caiya and husband Mayo Kawasaki hit gossip columns recently when it was reported that the couple, who have been living separately for years, were both engaging in extramarital affairs, TV Asahi reported.

When Caiya was asked if she and Kawasaki had consulted a lawyer after the rumors surfaced, she replied curtly, "No, because I didn't cheat. I lent that man my parking space and in return he walked my dog. That's it," according to TV Asahi.

She was then asked about Kawasaki's public dalliances, to which she responded, "It's important for me to forgive. People aren't perfect."

"The Lincoln Lawyer" opens nationwide on July 14.

I lent that man my parking space and in return he walked my dog.

Best. Euphemism. Ever.

Chicago born. Here's a fun quote from her otherwise brief wiki entry:

Her claim to fame on Japanese television comes from her playing off the stereotypical American woman from the Japanese point of view as loud, domineering, and materialistic.

Stereotypes have absolutely no truth! Except maybe this one!

"that man"

reminds me of clinton and "that woman". using language to desperately distance yourself from something very very close.

I don't get it. It doesn't make any sense if you think of marriage as where people aren't expected to cheat, which is usually the norm. Also walking someone's dog is doing them a favour, something in kind for borrowing the parking space, but I hardly think having an affair is ever seen as doing a favour to the other half of the couple. I think it's a terrible euphemism

So what, if it's ok with them, I'll walk the dog.

And "SO WHAT" if she did! It's none of anybody's beeswax, so buzz off.

I feel sorry for her, because she was kind of pushed into this stereotyped image of an American wife, pretty much to help her husband's career. Hang in there Carolyn!

Also walking someone's dog is doing them a favour,

A favour ? Many guys wouldn't mind if you entertained their wife in bed, as they are often too busy to do it and they want them to have good time... That's love. But they'd be furious if you played with their aiken.

Why anyone would choose to think about her engaging in an extramarital affair is beyond me.
