Jo Miller, whose daughter Sienna has been involved in a number of high profile relationships, is asking celebrity gossip outlets for a ceasefire on their "feeding frenzy," referring to coverage of the actress' affair with married actor Balthazar Getty.
"You can't understand how a woman seeing a man who has been separated from his wife [Rosetta Getty] for months can cause such a scandal," Mrs. Miller told the U.K.'s Daily Express. "It's awful, I can't tell you. You wonder when it's all going to stop."
Then again, acquaintances of Rosetta Getty have said her and her husband were "in no way separated" when the Brothers & Sisters star began dating Miller. One friend said:
"Any implication otherwise is an absolute lie. Balthazar's affair has been utterly devastating to Rosetta and her family."
On July 21, Getty released a statement announcing he and Rosetta are separated.
"Yes, they're living separate lives at the moment – because of his shenanigans," said another friend. "It's disappointing that [Getty and Miller] are flaunting this so publicly. There are four children involved. Their oldest, Cassius, is mature enough to understand something's not right."
It's hard to find fault with that statement. After all, Mrs. Miller, it's our job to report on celebrity news - and when your daughter goes topless for all to see, laying a smooch on her new man, that's a newsworthy story.
