Elizabeth Vargas was a recovering alcoholic in rehab while her husband was supposedly having an alleged affair in the real world.
Marc Cohn responded with a degree of anger and frustration when questioned about his affair with Ruth Zuckerman. He responded in a brusque manner saying that such vicious rumors of a so-called affair were stuff that he did not like to comment on.
He furthermore said that his wife had already gone through so much and the whole family was concerned about her. They did not need any more pestering from the media regarding any affair that was non-existent.
'I have no comment regarding vicious rumors about a so-called “affair,”' he told MailOnline through a spokesperson.'I have encouraged and supported Elizabeth's recovery as her years of struggle have been hard on everyone. Out of deference to my family's privacy, I will not comment further.'
Elizabeth had been fighting a losing battle with the bottle. One day Marc had said to her “You are an alcoholic. You need help.” According to Elizabeth, she was very angry at that statement but it was true. So, upon Marc’s insistence, she joined rehab and is almost sober now after some time in the facility.
Wow - thank u everyone for your love and support. So many also have anxiety. Rehab taught me how to deal w it soberly. Thx to all who share— Elizabeth Vargas (@EVargasABC) February 6, 2014
Marc’s affair with a spinning instructor while his wife was in rehab could totally derail their marriage if proven to be true. In the capacity of a Grammy Award winning songwriter, Marc Cohn has a name and fame in society.
But his wife too is a media personality in her own right. And the fact that Ruth Zuckerman is a friend of both Marc and Elizabeth could spell trouble if Marc’s affair with her turns out to be a fact. Already, there are further rumors that Marc and Elizabeth having separated.
However, reliable sources say that they are still together. The whole affair thing started when Marc was spotted having a meal at a restaurant with Zuckerman. This set the tongues wagging. Marc is known for his famous song “Walking in Memphis” which aired in the early 90s and was quite a hit.
He and Elizabeth got to know each other thanks to Andre Agassi in 1999. They got married 12 years ago and have two sons. If they separate or God forbid divorce one another it could have a devastating effect on their children.
