A week after the nation learned of Paula Broadwell’s months-long affair with CIA boss David Petraeus, it appears as if her husband, Dr. Scott Broadwell, is getting the support he needs.
Dr. Scott Broadwell has been pictured embracing a friend in the doorway of his Charlotte, North Carolina home a day after he returned with his shamed wife and their two sons.
Paula Broadwell, who was photographed on the school run and carrying out errands on Monday as she struggled to get back to normality, has told friends she deeply regrets the damage to her family.
A close friend has revealed Paula Broadwell is desperately trying to repair the damage and move forward.
After the scandal broke more than a week ago following David Petraeus’ resignation as director of the CIA, she stayed with her brother at his home in Washington D.C. but returned to North Carolina yesterday.
The family was welcomed by a group of friends and neighbors on her return, and a friend – who did not want to be named – said that Paula Broadwell was overwhelmed by the outpouring of support.
Paula Broadwell maintained her stony silence after being confronted by a number of reporters when she pulled up in an SUV, according to WSOC-TV.
Dr. Scott Broadwellrefused to comment, but appeared happy to joke about the media circus which has surrounded his family since November 9 – the day David Petraeus resigned.
