(AP Photo/Cliff Owen) (Newser) – Paula Broadwell has kept a low profile amid the fallout from her affair with David Petraeus, but a family friend tells the AP that Broadwell is "devastated" over the situation. She is working to fix the damage done to the families involved—damage she regrets terribly, the friend says. Broadwell is back in Charlotte, NC, with her husband and sons after more than a week spent at her brother's place in Washington. She received an emotional welcome home from supportive friends and neighbors, the friend says.
