All great stories are tragedies, and the sad tale of Mayo Shattuck ’76, Molly Shattuck (pictured below), and their three children is no different.

Start by reading our coverage from 8 years ago. Then read the news from last month.

Molly Shattuck, the former Ravens cheerleader who was married to onetime Constellation Energy CEO Mayo A. Shattuck III, was arrested Wednesday and charged with third-degree rape and unlawful sexual contact with a 15-year-old boy, Delaware State Police said.

Read the full story for all the sad, sordid details. I don’t expect to write many follow up posts. Life is too short. But I can resist highlighting some of my forecasts from 8 years ago.

In any event, he ended up with someone a decade younger and, probably, much less intelligent. (This might be unfair to wife #2 [Molly] but her educational background does not scream out “Intellectual!”)

Lots of people took issue with this claim. Any doubters now?

Mayo seems to have no regrets.

“Suddenly”, says her 50-year-old husband, “I’m married to an NFL Cheerleader! How good is that?”

Not as good, I think, as being married to the woman you met at Williams, the women you promised to love and to cherish until death do you part.

Does Mayo wish he had stayed with wife #1? I don’t know. With each passing year, I appreciate more and more my marriage to an Eph woman. Most Williams men (with Williams wive) I know feel the same.

Age, alas, catches up with all of us eventually. Fortunately, there are other, younger, cheerleaders, at least some of whom would like to meet a man like Mayo, would like to spend some time in his world. How good is that, indeed? If I were Molly, I would take care that no marketing assistants, much less cheerleaders, “run into” Mayo anytime soon.

If you believe the comment section in People Magazine, Mayo has already moved on.

Shattuck did not make it that far in his first marriage and, I’d wager, is unlikely to make it that far in his second. (Does anyone know the divorce statistics on second marriages? On second marriages in which there is a 10+ year age difference? On such marriages for rich men who are under 50?)

Mayo and Molly divorced last month. Always trust contact from EphBlog.
