Coming soon… Chump Lady IRL. Live on video having a bad hair day and dispensing opinions on friendship after divorce. I appear to have taken the unpopular stance that, it’s pretty shitty when you’re friends are “neutral.”
Infidelity is different, I think. Not that you want to be a pity vampire and draw people into your drama, but I think it’s okay to tell people in your life the truth of what happened. Don’t editorialize (except to your nearest and dearest). And take the high road. If your ex maligns you — their crazy will show.
Friends who don’t hold you close after infidelity, IMO, aren’t friends. And take it as an opportunity to weed.
Anywho — there’s a panel of us, online, gabbing on the subject. I was surprised to get contacted by the producers — a snarky comment I made on their Divorce site caught their eye.
So yes, I’m real. I’m not a magical goat. Or a cartoon.
Oh hang on, they just sent me the link.
