Suspected infidelity can tear apart the most
solid relationships. Today’s guests wanted
the truth from their mates about whether or not
they’d been faithful.
Eddie is twenty years older than Judy and suspects
her of cheating on him with his own son. After
catching Judy with another man in the past, Eddie
feels that an affair with his son would be the
final blow to their relationship. Because of all
the suspicion, Eddie has not spoken to his son
in years. Judy wants Eddie to accept her apology
for her lone affair and believe that she would
not cheat on him with a member of his family.
