Clayton & Sara: “Me” or “We”?

Fox & Friends co-anchor Clayton Morris and Brite Girl founder Sara Batterson Morris seemed to be singing from the same hymn book this morning again. Clayton on his show and Sara in her blog, discussed the very same subject today, i.e., married persons using the “we” or “me” as personal pronouns and the implications thereof. Coincidence?

Reader, after watching Fox & Friends and considering whether to write about co-host Alisyn Camerota’s horrid housecoat habit, the author noticed Carpe Diem visitors interest in co-anchor Clayton Morris’ marital status. Remembering that FNC contributor Karl Rove had kidded Clayton about his inordinate interest in pursuing guest Amber Lee Ettinger (the Obama girl) and that a ring-less Clayton had jested about his employing the singular during a segment on happier couples using the plural “we,” the author decided to examine the matter further. When he did, he then discovered that Clayton and Sara were opining on identical topics today.

For those Carpe Diem readers who may have forgotten who Sara is, Clayton introduced F&FW fans to his wife with a pic of the shark-snaring bikini beauty on New Smyrna Beach, FL, on August 10, 2008. Later, in March of 2009, he showed off his Orlando lovely again on a Gary Vaynerchuk wine-tasting vid. Apparently, Clayton married Sara Batterson on May 20, 2006, at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church in Orlando, FL.

As to Clayton’s questionable connunbial state, Clayton has seemingly eschewed wearing his wedding band since October of 2009. From the author’s perspective, Clayton’s marital status is generally irrelevant unless he himself alludes to it. Since he did today and readers seemed quite intrigued, the author looked at Sara’s Facebook and Brite Girl sites for a few clues. In her personal info, Sara states, “Right now, I am taking a new path in my life. It is crazy when you think you are on one path and then life, or someone in your life, throws you a curveball…” Obviously, Sara’s statement indicated a major life change.

Seeking an even clearer indication, the author checked out Sara’s Brite Girl blog. To my utter surprise, today’s post (dated “Saturday, January 30, 2010 At 9:48AM’) was entitled “Madly in Love with Me Day.” It’s topic? The creation of a woman’s movement of self-love by Christine Arylo, the author of Choosing Me Before We, and her celebration of the day before Valentine’s as a time to recognize the need for each woman and girl to “know and honor what her heart and soul desire, never settling for less,” including relationships.

Is it “Me” or “we” for Clayton and Sara? Regardless, the two seemed to be in tandem today. Intentionally or not.

    “Me or we”? What a wonderful question! However, I for one do not know the answer but shall follow this trend of posting my favourite webpage in my comment.

  5. Joy to the World Says:

    Clayton’s version of “me before we” is based out of his undying love for himself, pure selfishness. Sara on the other hand has realized if you do not know who you are on the inside and learn to love yourself, then when your husband starts running around on you while you are still a newlywed you will be left shattered….Did I just say that out loud?!?!!? Sara has found healing in being able to help other women become “BRITE” her blog and website encourage and inspire others to be the best that they can be! Well-done Sara!! Mr. Author just so you know Clayton and Sara sing from very different hymnbooks!

    Well… it is always a good thing to blame one party or another in a relationship break down… let’s remember it takes two.. whether it works or doesn’t… lots of marriages work.. lots don’t … and it usually isn’t just one thing that is the deal breaker… underlining trouble often is the root!! People have often chosen the wrong partner… and better to know sooner than later.. for all involved.

  7. Well seasoned Says:

    There may be many reasons a marriage can fail and yes there are two in that relationship. However, vows were taken before God and friends and it is a convenant entered into that is not to be broken intentionally. When one breaks the vow and steps out of the marriage, do not look for what caused it. Couseling can heal before brokenness occurs. One person has been the horrific victim of broken trust and the other has one very serious problem… it is called CHARACTER FLAW!! That is it in a nutshell. Don’t make excuses… also remember a leopard doesn’t change his spots!!!

  8. A person's private life Says:

    What is the obsession with other peoples pain in this world?? I am careful not to judge.. as I know I have faults(character flaws) and have not been perfect in my life… but God has forgiven. I don’t live in a glass house…..and I do believe the glass is half full for those who choose to believe ……

    Considering no one is watching Fox and Friends Weekend except FNC devotees who are both right wing and uneducated from the flyover states, and considering Clayton is nothing to look at, and considering his presentation is contrived and schticky and all about him, and considering FNC hasn’t given him one single assignment that doesn’t involve tech gadgets, i.e. no fill-in time on weekday, primetime, real news shows on FNC, and considering he gets no mainstream PR, I would dare say no one gives a s**t what his marital status is. His wife, or half-wife, or ex-wife has constructed a web presence that appears to be about independence and empowerment but is really a big clue that she can’t let it go. Sad.
