When Paula Broadwell and her husband Scott returned to their North Carolina home with their two sons on Sunday from Washington, D.C., 25 friends and neighbors gathered to offer their support.
But for the married Broadwell, 40, who was both biographer and mistress to former Central Intelligence Agency Director David Petraeus, 60, the revelation of the affair and subsequent attention has made her emotional.
"She's been devastated by this," Paula Broadwell's brother, Stephen Kranz, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview. "She is filled with guilt and shame for what she's done and she's incredibly sorry for the pain she's caused her husband, her family, Petraseus's family. She accepts responsibility for her actions and knows she made a mistake."

Kevin Clash is no longer facing a claim that he was involved in an underage sexual relationship.
The puppeteer, 52, who is the voice of Elmo on Sesame Street, was granted a leave of absence from the long-running program amid an accusation from an unidentified male that Clash was having sex with him at age 16.
On Tuesday the law firm that represents the accuser released a statement to the Los Angeles Times, recanting the claim.

The puppeteer who performs as the Sesame Street character Elmo has been granted a leave of absence from his job amid allegations he had an improper relationship with a 16-year-old boy.
Kevin Clash denies the allegations first reported by TMZ but says that he had a consensual relationship with a man, who is now 23, that occurred when the accuser was of legal age.
"I am a gay man. I have never been ashamed of this or tried to hide it, but felt it was a personal and private matter," Clash, 52, tells PEOPLE in a statement via his personal rep.

On Monday's The Real Housewives of New York City, the cast heads to St. Barts to cut loose. But Countess LuAnn de Lesseps found herself the subject of salacious morning-after rumors after reportedly spending time alone with Tomas, a French-speaking Johnny Depp lookalike whom the ladies meet at a club during an alcohol-fueled night out.
The next morning, after telling the ladies she brought home a group Italian friends, de Lesseps is heard on the phone, and she's speaking in French.
"Can you do a favor for me, a big favor? I went out with Tom last night. You know, the one that looks a bit like Johnny Depp? And the girls, they know I brought someone here," she says on the call, which Bravo subtitles. "He can't say that he was here last night with me. I don't want the girls to know he was here with me," she says.

A Snow White and the Huntsman sequel may hit the silver screen without, well, its Snow White.
On Tuesday, the Hollywood Reporter ran an article saying that Kristen Stewart will not be invited back to star in a planned sequel to last summer's Snow White and the Huntsman. Instead, the story said, the film would focus on Chris Hemsworth's Huntsman character, and it would begin shooting this summer once the actor's schedule is free.
Soon after, though, the Los Angeles Times reported that Stewart's future in the planned Snow White sequel was not yet determined and that she could still play a role in the Hemsworth-focused film.

No matter how much it may hurt, this is one vampire unafraid to come out into the light.
Robert Pattinson stepped out for the cameras for the first time since the Kristen Stewart cheating scandal, appearing Monday in New York for The Daily Show.
Host Jon Stewart offered the actor some Ben & Jerry's ice cream to help cheer him up, joking they were "just a couple of gals" chatting about a breakup.

Just days before the cheating scandal erupted, Kristen Stewart said she knew a lot of actors who could affect an artificial public persona – but she wasn't one of them.
"I don't like people like that," Stewart told Entertainment Weekly at San Diego's Comic-Con in mid-July. "People who are a complete non-person but somehow through the lens seem like they are on and interesting and engaged. ... I don't want anyone leaving and saying, 'God, that girl is so fake.' "
She added: "People tell me to make it easier on myself and to play a character when I go out on carpets and stuff. But you know what? I'd rather be me."

Attention Twihards, it's time to give back.
The director of Breaking Dawn: Part 2 is issuing a challenge to Twilight fans during the cheating crisis for stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.
"The fact is, these are actors playing parts, and maybe it's not such a bad thing that people be reminded of that,” Bill Condon tells Entertainment Weekly in this week's issue. "Both of these actors gave heart and soul to the Twilight movies, not only during shooting, but also by navigating so graciously the whole life-in-a-fishbowl aspect of the phenomenon."
"Above all they have always shown great respect for the fans who made these movies such a success. Now it’s time that some of that respect be returned to them," he said.
