When the Pick Me Dance Turns Deadly

I read the news of a murder/suicide in Philly this week with a sad horror. Jennair Gerardot, 47,  confronted the woman who was having an affair with her husband, Meredith Chapman, 33, and shot her. Then she turned the gun on herself. Two women dead and the cake-eating bastard who enjoyed the competition of two […]

Dear Chump Lady, What do you do when they will NEVER admit to the truth?

God help the ad executives who were trying their darndest to make Oklahoma look sophisticated and “fun.” Instead of the tornado-afflicted backwater that it actually is. (And is anything sadder than a casino?) Who sets their sights so low that they’d […]

I think family therapist Lisa Bahar might be trolling us. I’ve read some asinine relationship listicles in my day (HuffPo I’m talking to you), but this one takes the biscuit — 7 Reasons Your Husband Left You for His Emotional Affair Partner. (Spoiler alert: It was you. You suck.) “She filled the gap and was […]
