Apparently Ekaterina Ivanova is realizing that being the girlfriend of Ronnie Wood is not all about shopping and trips to the south of France. No doubt she thought that if she managed to snag a guy like Ronnie Wood it would be all parties and events and fashion shows and meeting famous people she could sleep with while pretending to enjoy sleeping with her great grandfather aged lover.
Well, instead she is getting an introduction into life in the real world and an indication to the rest of us that this relationship may not last very long. OK, I don't think any of us thought it would last that long anyway. I predicted that it would last as long as it took for her either to get pregnant or to wait out Ronnie's divorce and then marry the guy. Now I'm not sure it will even make it that far.
In an interview she gave to Grazia Magazine she says,”I am always exhausted. We always have to go somewhere, or meet someone. There are Ronnie's Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, and then when you get home the phone rings, then you have to walk the dog.
“There is something really tiring about it. We don't get as much time together as I thought we would. There is always someone else there.”
Umm yeah. It is called a guy who is in his 60's who has some issues and works for a living to some extent and has lived a great deal in the past 40 years. It is also what a real relationship is about. The day to day mundane things. It can't all be room service and shopping. I think she is learning that lesson really quickly. You can just tell by that quote that she is not really enjoying this as much as she probably thought she would. But wait, it gets better.
She doesn't seem to understand why everyone thinks so poorly of her for getting into the relationship with Ronnie. Now, I understand that Ronnie is equally to blame in all of this, but what she said kind of shocked me.
“I'm scared to do anything. Everyone talks about me as if I don't have feelings. I'm sick of feeling like a victim.”
I don't think anyone thinks of you as a victim. I think everyone has completely different thoughts about you. The victims here are his wife and his kids who are also old enough to be your parents. I don't know why or how you got it inside your head you are a victim, but that is the wrong impression to get.
