Every day we feature the beloved “Strawberry Letter” franchise that is so popular on “The Steve Harvey Morning Show,” heard nationwide. Send in your letters and Shirley Strawberry will dish out the necessary advice. Today’s topic: On the way to hell Let me get straight to the point. I had a year-long affair with my friend’s boyfriend. After coming to my senses, and seeing that I was being selfish and stupid, I ended it. Now years later, my friend and her boyfriend are married and she tells me that she thinks her husband is cheating around on her. When she tells me why she thinks he is cheating on her, everything sounds familiar. He is acting the same way he was acting when he was cheating with me so I think he is having an affair, but I don’t know because I haven’t really talked with him since we ended everything. I don’t know what to do. She is pissed off and hurt, but she wants things to work with him. I don’t want him to play her like that and really want to tell her that he is cheating on her but I don’t feel like I can tell her without telling on myself. I figure I’m already screwed because I messed up anyway and should tell her, but on the other hand maybe I just want to tell her because I feel so guilty. She keeps asking me if I think he is cheating on her and I keep telling her to talk to him and that it isn’t my place to say, but I’m lying! He is cheating and she deserves better. She deserves a better husband and a better friend. So do I say something? Signed, Hell in a Hand Basket
