Bon Jovi Thanks His Wife Appliance

Bon Jovi thanks his wife appliance after he confesses in the Hulu / Disney biopic “Thank You, Goodnight” that he’s had hundreds of women.

***

Alas, we cannot all be rock stars. Some of us are glue. Sticky, pale, given an ugly name like “Elmer” and hidden in a junk drawer somewhere.

Bon Jovi thanks his wife: ‘She’s the glue.’

In a recent interview with the Fox News Digital patriarchy enthusiasts , Bon Jovi says of Dorothea:

“She’s the glue,” he said. “I’m the crazy visionary with all kinds of things flying, and the seams are all splitting. She’s the one following me with the glue and the thread and needle, keeping it all together.”

How nice to have a wandering dick and your own personal tailor to sew up your trousers. You can’t expect visionaries to have sewing kits. They have important matters to attend to. Like deciding which bandana to wear, or which groupie to fuck.

He’s not a saint.

He tells Michael Strahan at ABC News:

“I got away with murder. I’m a rock and roll star, I’m not a saint. You know, I’m not saying that there weren’t 100 girls in my life – I’m Jon Bon Jovi. It was pretty good.”

Hey, he can’t recall their names. They serviced him and went on their merry ways. But his wife’s been cool with it, because he’s a sex symbol and she is a common household adhesive. Whom he loves. Marriage has no rules!

Can Dorothea be a visionary?

No! That’s against the rules!

Bon Jovi praises Elmer Dorothea in his interview with Fox.

“There is no doubt in my mind that this world revolves because of her,” he said. “Because of what she did to keep the kids right, what she does to keep me right, what we do together to keep it right. No doubt about it.”

Tradwife goals. She raises the kids, he brings home the paycheck and Chlamydia. We’re all good.

She gets uppity sometimes.

“She’s certainly not afraid to call me out on something,” he went on, “but she’s also there when I fall. And I’m there for her when she falls. No matter where I went in my career, the ups or the downs, we went there together.”

Do not doubt Bon Jovi’s devotion. Do not mentally calculate what a 1989 marriage might cost him in alimony. Or wonder if he got a pre-nup. Just accept his devotion and admire the longevity of his marriage. He’s a visionary. Fucking around is what rock stars do. It doesn’t matter, because Bon Jovi comes home to his wife.

This is no different than the countless female rock star biopics you hear about, where a man slavishly devotes his life to raising their children, and following her career, while she cuckolds him. Then brags about her sex symbol status 35 years later, and praises him as glue.

Nope. There is absolutely no power dynamic going on.

Marriage doesn’t need rules!

Bon Jovi opened up more about the current state of his marriage, explaining, “I don’t think that we need rules. I think it’s just the mutual admiration society. I think it’s as simple as that. You wake up in the morning excited to be with each other. And you admire each other. And you respect each other. It’s a pleasure to do. It’s a pleasure to be.”

Bon Jovi loves his wife appliance. She’s a pleasure. Her devotion is unquestioned, his dick wanders as the whim takes him. Why have rules? Do kings have rules? No. They live by Divine Right. It’s not cheating, if there are no rules. There are only roles. And just one King.

“Somehow, I became the poster boy for a long-married rock star. But I’ll accept the mantle because I’m so happy.”

This Pod cast had me weeping for Tina and I’m certain it struck terror in the hearts of every woman reading this blog of what could happen to them. I do wonder how she could even dream of divorcing this crazy person and represent herself with no lawyer??? It sounds like she had plenty of money though somewhat bankrupted by her then husband..but still! Her husband sounded so sick that he could not have been safe by any stretch of the imagination. But God bless her for staying alive and going to bat for all of us. Tina is such an amazing thrives and the Chump wars. So proud of such a woman of might.

I hope his long-suffering wife now boots him out after revealing he’s just another douche-bag rock knob. I thought he was a nice, loyal spouse & dad while making music as his job….silly me for having bought into the con, the media-crafted image. But, hey he’ll take the credit for it, even if it was his wife that did all the heavy lifting!

Orlando, I thought he was a good guy too! I just listened two days ago to part of an interview on NPR. She was asking him about his charities for the homeless etc. so 2 days ago I had a high opinion of him. Somehow I guess I missed out on the fact that he was no better than Tom Jones. Wow… I was never an ardent Bonjovi fan but yes I guess the media conned me as well.

I can’t think of a single Bon Jovi song, probably because the only times I’m exposed to that kind of music is on road trips when you’re so deep in the Boondocks that none of the good FM stations have reception. I can handle a bit of old disco, even a little hokey country and western, but, as soon as the sleazy hair band shit comes on, I get a convulsive ick reaction and abruptly change the station.

It’s hard to explain why that music is so repulsive to me. It all sounds canned– like a copy of a copy of a copy, completely bloodless, white supremacist, invariably sexist and completely divorced from the original roots of rock.

When I lived in South Korea at the end of the nineties (well after Bon Jovi’s heyday in N America) I learned that the band was enjoying bigger rock star status in Korea than I remember ever being the case at home. They were the perfectly packaged cookie-cutter defiance that the disaffected male youth (but not like, political protest disaffected, just defy the aesthetic of their strictly conservative working culture dads disaffected) could emulate. I remember being charmed that there was a school “rock club” at the university where I taught. Their room was appropriately housed in the student building, and we’d walk by the open door in the mornings; they blared Bon Jovi every day for months.

I assume this was before 2020 when Bon Jovi reportedly started straining for social relevance. I never heard any of it but saw some tweets about how one song on the subject of police violence was basically a lame ripoff of Peter Gabriel.

The biggest one was probably You Give Love a Bad Name, in which Jon complains about a wicked woman, but never explains why he considers her so wicked. Maybe she said no to him.
There was another one I recall, a repulsive romantic ballad called Bed of Roses.

I remember reading years ago( on a gossip site) that he cheated on his wife all the time, and whenever she found out he would “allow her” to buy a new house. No idea if that’s true, but the news that he’s been a lifelong cheater doesn’t surprise me.

A lot of guys do that. Try to compensate with gifts. Johnny Carson was a BIG cheater and I think all of his wives had a similar name – all variants of Joanne (easier for him to remember probably). Whenever he’d cheat and get caught, he’d buy them some big gift – car, jewels – whatever, but they’d divorce him anyway. You get more in the settlement, LOL.

My FW’s brother does that. Last time he got caught he bought his wife a new swimming pool. Next it will be the second story addition to their house she’s been wanting. He advised FW to go that route, but FW had a brief, shining moment of common sense and knew it wouldn’t work.

I’ll have to wait to watch this. I’m still recovering from the Netflix Filthy Rich film fest about Epstein and Maxwell. Who were in a relationship. Who had the ultimate in wealth, social position and connections, real estate, private jets, cars, clothes, etc. The ultimate frosted turds.

Please, chumps, look past the outsides and the stuff and the physical attributes. LOOK AT THE INSIDES. Don’t compare. ASSESS. And don’t use outside stuff as the criteria. I enjoy outside stuff as much as the next person, but the shiny outside of an apple means nothing if the apple is rotten. People who knowingly harm others have rotten cores.

I read an interview decades ago where Jon Bongiovi spoke about coming back to Dorothea after ditching her for a swim in the rock star/ groupie sea. Not a chump then myself, I wondered why she took him back.
As far as relationships go, they don’t have anything I want.

I think this was pretty similar with Sharon Osborne and Ozzy O. He was banging everything and she kept taking him back. She seems to have developed on her own with a career, personality, etc, but she ate that shit sandwich for decades. Now Ozzy acts like he has dementia but maybe that’s just his normal personality anyway.

I am really shocked at this (but then again, maybe not). But I thought Bon Jovi was one of the good ones, an exception to the rock-n-roll Man Whore-dom, but it looks like I was sadly mistaken. Wow, could his words have been more demeaning? “The rules don’t apply to me” Narcissistic, self righteous statements coming out of this dude’s mouth make me want to remove his songs from my Spotify playlist stat. WITAF??!! I mean, the entitlement and lack of empathy are just tone deaf and off the hook here! I think it might be time for his wife to find out what a 1980’s divorce without a pre-nup looks like…

I could feel the build-up to it long before D-day. FW began preemptively terrorizing me by not-so-subtly indicating he’d accuse me of “parental alienation” or cast me as a “dangerous, unfit mother” if I mumbled anything about his scary new drinking problem or about separating or asked if he was cheating or even told him to sleep in the guestroom.

It didn’t matter to him that I knew the grounds on which he was basing these arguments were complete bs. It seemed he was bellowing this stuff at me in order to demo how “credible” he would appear to others when he told lies about me. I also felt it in my bones at the time that he had already been saying these things to other people behind my back, rehearing the lies to the point that he was beginning to believe them himself which made the performance seem more believable. Something else that demonstrated his investment was the rage and sheer hatred on his face. I didn’t believe any of the lies but I certainly believed he meant business and could destroy my life.

Though I wasn’t aware of such a thing as reunification camps at the time, I knew from having worked as a DV survivors’ advocate that many abusers were successfully taking full child custody based on “alienation” charges against victims. And he knew I knew. It put the fear of God in me and I collapsed into an inert, catastrophically depressed puddle for almost a year. The thinner, weaker and sicklier I got and the more I socially withdrew, the more FW would weaponize these things as proof of my “unfitness.”

Thank God a lawyer friend knew just how to break the spellbinding. It took me almost a year to reach out to her and tell her what was going on. Genius that she is, she guessed immediately the FW was cheating and began coaching me on gathering evidence and turning the tables to protect myself and the kids. I followed her instructions like a robot– scrounged money in secret, hired a PI and retained an attorney.

Finding out about the affair was actually a relief because the evidence pretty much foiled all of FW’s threats and coercion. It’s very strange how, when you’re that terrified, you end up almost welcoming and crowing victoriously over every bit of evidence that would have previously broken your heart and torn you to pieces. The worse and more egregious the evidence, the more it worked in my favor. The fact that he didn’t want people in his profession to know about the affair put the power in my hands. FW dumped the AP like a human sacrifice, sending a brutal “cease and desist” notice. Her wailing protests must have been audible from space so it was pretty clear he wasn’t just taking the thing underground. He came clean on all the assets he’d spent and more that he’d been hiding under some vague notion that he might go to jail or lose visitation rights if he didn’t or was caught in any more lies.

Turns out that, despite stringing the AP along with hints that he might divorce and the credible-sounding threats he’d made to me, he actually didn’t know the first thing about divorce procedures or custody in our state so imagined all these dire outcomes for himself. He became weirdly compliant, even shooting himself in the foot further by writing out confessions about previous failed attempts to have affairs with other office barflies, about the drinking, pot smoking and drunk driving, how greedy and grasping and manipulative the AP was, all her sleazy secrets, his compulsive porn use, etc. And he also put it wring that there was no grounds to cast me as a bad mother and that I had never once “alienated” the kids nor threatened to keep the kids away from him.

It’s like he went into a trance and thought spilling the beans would gain him God’s amnesty or something. Fine with me. To paraphrase Sun Tzu, never interrupt the enemy when they’re in the midst of destroying themselves.

Hair band groupies tend to be bargain basement budget. One of my closest friends from school is a freelance guitarist who, among other styles of music, can “shred” like a monster and used to periodically tour with various heavy metal/hair bands. She was always a vegetarian who didn’t smoke or drink and trained for marathons. Consequently I’d joke that she needed ten layers of cakey makeup so she didn’t stand out at these venues like the farm-fresh virgin in a sea of rotting zombie coke Madonnas.

Lol, I can’t take credit for it but I assume it’s fair use since it exists nowhere on the web. Some heavily tattooed, perpetually stoned grip I worked with was apparently an unpublished poet and muttered this to describe hookers on 23rd St. He used to come in late and, in place of an excuse, would say things like “Uh, I feel like a billy goat with tin cans tied to my tail.”

I thought he was funny at first but turned out to be a budding FW who cheated on his live-in girlfriend with an also perpetually stoned former Olympic luger at work.

I am so confused by this revelation. For decades we were sold the line that he was still happily married to his high school sweetheart after decades. And now in hindsight, I suppose no one ever said he was FAITHFUL to her, but it was sort of implied by the fact that they were held up as some inspirational situation.

I feel tricked. LOL. A lot more Rock Stars could have stayed with their wives for decades if their wives didn’t care about them sleeping with groupies. What is so impressive about THAT?

I’m really curious for what her take is? She HAS to of been ok with it, there is no way he is revealing all this if she wasn’t ok with it.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Chump Lady – I saw this about Bon Jovi and was so appalled by him and saddened by what his poor wife has been going through. I know there must be a lot of perks to be married to a rock star, and just to keep a marriage intact for so long, but she must have swallowed an enormous amount of shit sandwiches on the way. The speculation was that she did not go to that event probably because of the shit JBJ said and not because she had COVID. People would not be surprised if there is a divorce on the way.

BTW……what the hell is so ADMIRABLE about Jon Bon Jovi? He was cute in the day, not my type, but whatever, but that doesn’t rank up as “admirable” to me. Exploring the Amazon, going to the moon, working to cure cancer….or taking care of kids and sick people….THAT to me is “admirable”. Jon is an ASSHOLE.

I was thinking about this recently and I realized that one of the things you lose when you discover cheating, is the sense of admiration and respect for your mate. You may still have affection for them, you may still recognize that they have some good qualities like even politicians have (I might take that one back though)……but once you find out they’ve been fucking someone(s) else and lying, and deceiving, and stealing money, and doing shit like that….it’s very hard to respect and admire them again. That kind of….goes away. As I always say, once you know, you never view them the same way again – and you never fully trust them – but the thing to me that goes away the most is, respect and admiration. You can’t admire a cheater.

All of this is on him–full stop. But that doesn’t take away from her willingness to remain, and do so in utter complicity. They are both too young to fall in the category if this being an era norm, but I’m guessing she has someone important in her life encouraging her to look the other way because that’s how a lot of women of a certain era found ways to stay with their cheating spouses–especially the wealthy ones.

If she had ever cheated on him, he’d have felt endlessly sorry for himself and would have cut his “glue” loose immediately. I kind of wish he finds out on his deathbed that every time he was on tour she was cheating. In a perfect world….. sigh.

But here’s the part that you just can’t see
You’re a strutting cock, not a visionary

Oh, oh, here’s a chode so dumb
Oh, oh, sticky glue is no fun
And there are no rules

He doesn’t even take responsibility for his children, including his daughter Stephanie who almost died on heroin in 2012. He wants to spackle that his life choices had nothing to do with his daughter’s addiction:

In 2012, she was arrested on drug charges in college. She went to college in Hamilton College before going to the New School. Jon told Katie Couric, “She’s doing great and I appreciate everyone’s thoughts and prayers, [but] in short, that problem is much more prevalent…than I knew and I cannot get over how many people I’ve met that have said, ‘My son, my daughter,” admitted Bon Jovi. “There is a lot of pressure on kids these days. There’s access to things my generation didn’t have. I’m just blessed she’s healthy and whole, and we’ll get through it.”

I am convinced that most cheaters (not all, some mature) started their scamming and cheating in school. I wish I had known that. Well I guess it wouldn’t have mattered because I didn’t hear of my fw’s girl friends writing his term paper until after we were married.

I had no sense of how to vet others for values as a young person. I wrote part (all?) of an assignment for my first boyfriend so he could graduate, because, if I remember correctly, he had “so much to do” – some film gig had come up – so I agreed to “help” him. Later in the relationship he’d come home with merch he’d stolen from work and I don’t remember objecting; I just didn’t react. I was so underparented and isolated, I engaged with every peer as though they knew more than me about social things. I knew more about school, so I was definitely the person that got approached to copy stuff off of, which I wouldn’t do as a classmate, but as a girlfriend, I could be convinced. I never copied off anyone else or had anyone write for me, so when I look back now I’m sad at how numb and easily manipulated I was, that I just accepted it from a guy who said he cared about me.

But the Bon Jovi quote just shows that he was attracted *because* she didn’t object to his cheating, and even enabled it. I imagine my first boyfriend had tested me for little things he could get away with well before I wrote that paper; who knows how many boundaries I didn’t have back then.

This is the AGREEMENT to an open marriage. No way did she believe he would be faithful, no way could she trust him, no way. Again I’m reminded of a story I heard about Mick Jagger and his long ago X Binaca…who told Mick she would stay married to him if he did not have a child with anyone else. He did and she left. That was her line in the sand him using protection. No control there.
So if you Marry any kind of Star or person who sees themselves as central in the
story of “them”. These are not marriage material folks. However ” the “agreement” includes raising their babies, being rich and no self esteem at all. There are many people IMO who do the same for way less. I would not waste a moment calling Bon Jovis “wife”an appliance or Chump or any term that we should pity. Dorothea is not being used, she is a willing participant in a life time of “pick me “or rather,” keep me, :dancing. She is simply the first wife of a king. Nothing new here.

You make a good point. So this would make his wife not so much a chump as what Tracy calls a “volunteer.”

Still, he probably broke the implicit contract in *publicly* crowing about how many fuck buddies he has had, which would explain why she didn’t come with him to the film premier (unless she actually did have Covid).

Hmmm Leedy..I can hardly think that Bon jovis wife would agree to him having sex with a thousand plus woman over his life time and then insist he NOT BRAG about it? Not going to his opening night is just not wanting to face the truth right in.her face. Like an ostriches head in the sand. She is the first Queen and wants to stay special.. I thought I was special too but i had no idea of physicsl cheating. Still i moved my line of accepting horrible behavior. Im in theraoy for that. Dorothea is no one’s chump

I’ve never liked cock rockers Bon Jovi. Even more reason not to reading this tripe spewing forth from him. What a wanker, a dirty, low down cheater narc of the highest order. Yuck!

I LOATHE Bon Jovi. I find his music and him insipid. This just adds yet another reason to not care for him. I’m not much younger than him either, AND I grew up not far from him in NJ. People are frequently surprised that I was brought up in NJ, yet can’t stand Bon Jovi. I’ve sort of learned to tolerate Bruce Springsteen. Sort of. The FW XW was a HUGE Springsteen fan. Also, a lying, cheating Jersey girl.🫤
