I Was The Crazy Ex
One writer talks about becoming the crazy ex-girlfriend after a breakup. Read More »

On Thursday night, I had what seemed like a pretty good first date. By Friday lunchtime, any chance of a romance between that guy and I had fallen spectacularly to pieces.

I wrote about what went down in a post called “An Open Letter To The Guy Who Called Me ‘Crazy.’”  I’ve been pretty thrilled by its reception, particularly all the messages from women who’ve said they totally relate to what happened with Mean Crazy Bitch Guy.

Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas photo
  • Alec Baldwin’s stalker — who was arrested trying to get into his NYC apartment — is 40-year-old Genevieve Sabourin, a French-Canadian woman whom he met on a movie set. Baldwin says the pair had a “strictly professional” dinner two years ago and that she’s been obsessed with him ever since, even showing up at events where he speaks. She apparently snapped after Alec Baldwin announced earlier this month that he was engaged to 28-year-old Hilaria Thomas (that’s Hilaria above, BTW).  [Daily Mail UK]
