Miley Cyrus recently canceled her Twitter account. Why? Because her new guy apparently couldn’t handle her ongoing interactions with her Ex, even if they were only 140 characters long. With 1.1 million followers, she was a queen in the world of tweet. Cyrus’ boyfriend, Australian actor, Liam Hemsworth apparently wasn’t happy with her ongoing exchange of posts with her ex-boyfriend Justin Gaston. Are you unsure about how to keep both your Ex and your new man happy? The answer is on page 225.
Lying, cheating, and betrayal are inexcusable. We certainly know that those things can evoke some pretty combustible feelings. However, no matter what you’ve been through doing anything that these pictures depict will not, we repeat, will not make you feel better. If you’ve been treated unfairly, don’t waste another minute, read our book, and remember that someone who treated you this way is not worth your time, your money, and is definitely not worth having to serve time for.
Many people have asked us what they should say about their Ex when out on a date. The short answer is less is more. We’ve got a whole chapter on this topic in our book. Here’s a little bit of that chapter, read out loud, at Book Soup on Sunday night. Maybe you’ll think again before EXpress too much on your next date.
One of the highlights of our trip to New York was our reading at Barnes and Noble in Greenwich Village. First off, it was special to Michelle because this was the bookstore she spent all her free time in as a student at NYU. Second of all, there was a great turn out who provided a lively discussion about Everything Ex.
We had the thrilling and terrifying experience of being on The Today Show but the very best part was getting an email from a woman who saw us on the show, rushed out and got the book, and finally got unstuck in her Ex issue. The subject of her message was: your book changed my life. Here is her message to us:
“I will never be able to thank you enough for “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Ex.” I hope you realize how big of an impact you have had on me and my happiness. After years of looking for a way out, I found one in a couple of hours by reading your book. I heard about the book when you both were on the Today show. When I saw your segment I thought that maybe the book would help. I was with someone for six years and walked in on him cheating a year ago, and since then it’s been a mess of him controlling my life. Honestly, people have been giving me advice for a year but you explained everything brilliantly. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
This made the terror of The Today Show worth it.
We are grateful to our friends and families who came out to celebrate the launch of our book. We chose to have our party at The Brentwood Country Mart because we had our first coffee date there, our first meeting with eHarmony there, and spend countless hours working on the book there. A good time was had by all and that big stack of books were all gone by the end of the night.
Are you hung up on your Ex? There’s an app for that.
Barbara Sears Rockefeller (born Jievute Paulekiute), died this week of natural causes in Arkansas. She received one of the largest divorce settlements of all time. 5.5 million dollars, which in 1954 was a huge chunk of cash–enough to live in a 6-story townhouse in Manhattan with a squash court. The marriage ended acrimoniously, after only six years, when Mrs. Rockefeller discovered Winthrop Rockefeller’s huge porn collection. She was the child of divorce. Her own parents divorced when she was a child. Is divorce a family condition, like alcoholism? If your parents choose that option, does it make it easier for you to choose that option? She never married again. It does, however, seem curious that she lived her last years in Arkansas, where her Ex had been governor. Coincidence? Maybe not. Just goes to show how the effects of Exes can last a lifetime.
