We’re excited about Meagan Good’s upcoming drama Deception. The show is set to air on Monday, January 7th at 10/9c and centers on an undercover agent (Meagan Good) who is focused on solving the mysterious murder of an heiress. After seeing the trailer for the show, which also stars Laz Alonso and Victor Garber, we got to thinking about the deception and betrayals that went down publicly this year. Here’s a few high profile cases that had us captivated and fascinated in 2012.


David Petraeus and Paula Broadwell

This had to be biggest scandal of the year, and for his high profile affair as CIA director, David Patraeus, has been named the most fascinating person of the year by Barbara Walters SMH. Patraeus, a married man, had an affair with his biographer Paula Broadwell, who was also married. What made this affair so fascinating is the fact that a CIA director was so messy with his business. If the head of the CIA can’t even keep an affair under wraps, who can? Obviously, Patraeus had to resign which he did in November.
