To Catch a Predator host . . . 'caught cheating on his wife'... by hidden cameras
Daily Mail UK ^ | June 29, 2011 | Fiona Roberts

Posted on 06/29/2011 1:41:11 PM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

He's made his name with a controversial show that catches would-be internet sex perverts in televised stings.

But now Chris Hansen has found himself on the receiving end of his own hidden camera tactics, after the married NBC anchor was secretly filmed on an illicit date with a blonde television reporter 20 years his junior.

Hansen, 51, has allegedly been having an affair with Kristyn Caddell, a 30-year-old Florida journalist, for the last four months.

Last weekend he was recorded taking Miss Caddell on a romantic dinner at the exclusive Ritz-Carlton hotel in Manalapan, before spending the night at her Palm Beach apartment.

Hansen, who has two young sons, was caught in an undercover sting operation arranged by the National Enquirer.

The irony is not lost on me. Having said that he wasn’t doing 14 year old girls presumably either. Just saying.

That's why he won't be cuffed and sent to prison.

But his wife deserved to know that her husband is a scumbag.

Does Chris like sweet tea? Does he have a few minutes to sit down and chat?

This is as bad as those dopes on Bait Car or one dope on To Catch A Predator who said, when nailed, gees, I saw this before on TV.

What goes around comes around.

You are comparing an adulterer to a pedophile? What are you, stupid? You think he had this coming to him for exposing dozens of pedophile rapists? Give me a break.

Going solely by the pictures on the Mail website, his wife’s hotter. I hope she dumps him.

Here’s the difference: immoral, but not illegal (anymore, in most places).

God help his sons and wife. And get his and his colleague’s minds right.

I’m disappointed in Hansen. I always thought he was doing God’s work in exposing and catching pedophiles and I still do. His adultry will cost him big-time and he has no one to blame but himself. No excuses.......none.

It's like Candid Camera except they go to prison as a bonus.

Yes, but usually karma pays you back for something bad that you did in the first place. This guy did relatively good work.

His getting caught on camera is ironic, though, and he deserved it.

Somehow, I wasn’t really surprised by this. I always suspected that Chris Hanson secretly “enjoyed” reading the pedophiles filthy chats.

The National Enquirer will expose celebrities who don’t walk the walk, but they will also be very supportive of people who do walk the walk.

Thay’s why you never saw one bad word about Billy Graham.

She has Dateline as a television favorite and lists “church” as an interest.

The girlfriend looks exactly like the soon to be ex-wife.

I never understood that...even John Derek did the same thing....Linda Evans and Bo-Derek were almost identical in looks.

If you’re going to trade in the old wife for a girlfriend, wouldn’t you at least get someone who looked different>

It’s like buying a silver Honda Accord and yeara later trading it for another silver Honda Accord that is identical. I get the idea that you like the Honda Accord, but maybe a different color

I have bought several of the same cars over the years but never the same color each time.

This is just bad form.

Seeing the look on the perv’s faces was a real draw. A friend of mine does it for the SBI He has some great stories:

“I didn’t download that stuff. It must be a virus”
“Did the virus burn these videos and pictures onto these DVD’s and categorize them by age and hair color then place them in this file cabinet? Did it also take a picture of your penis and send it to 22 underage girls?”
“Those viruses are pretty sophisticated these days”
