Nigella Lawson Denies Being A Raging Cokehead, Reveals What Really Incited Saatchi’s Violence

Earlier today in a UK court, TV chef Nigella Lawson took the stand to tell her side of the story about how those photos of ex-husband Charles Saatchi strangling her outside of Scott’s restaurant came to be. Oh, and to defend herself against the charge that she’s a major cokehead and that he wasn’t strangling her, but rather”removing drugs from her nose.” Because…that’s how it’s done? During his testimony, Saatchi changed his tale, telling the court that he “was not gripping, strangling or throttling her,” he “was holding her head by the neck to make her focus.” Yeah, still not working for me.

If that weren’t enough to deal with, Nigella’s former assistants, Francesca and Elisabetta Grillo, were accused of racking up more than $1 million in charges on the couple’s credit card. Defense lawyers for the former employees have suggested that Nigella gave them free run to use the credit card in return for their silence about her drug habit. Well, it’s finally Nigella’s turn to speak. After the jump, some of the key parts of her testimony. Keep reading »

Divorced Woman Charts The Pain Of A Breakup … Literally

Divorced Woman Charts The Pain Of A Breakup … Literally

Everyone has their own special way of trying to cope with a breakup. It’s a long, fruitless process of trying to find some way, any way to break the pain into manageable bites until it’s small enough to swallow. And naturally, each individual’s method is as unique as a snowflake. These little mechanisms we employ for ourselves may seem crazy to outsiders, but make perfect sense to us in our raw, recently broken up state. Say, for instance, deciding to time yourself each night, giving yourself a 4 minute limit to be sad about being dumped by a man you thought you were going to marry in your 20′s. This seemed like the only manageable solution to me at the time, but in retrospect, maybe it was odd. Who cares though, it worked eventually (although not in the mandatory 90 day time table I set forth). Keep reading »

How The Loss Of My Marriage Helped Me Find Myself

Clarity often comes like a bolt of lightning out of the blue. It’s a shock that opens your eyes to a whole new perspective. A client of mine called hers a miracle. Mine was like waking up — the kind where you sit straight up, instantly awake, and look around, not recognizing where you are, even though it’s the bedroom you’ve slept in for years.

My bolt of lightning struck after nine years of marriage. I was having a reunion lunch with a very dear friend of mine from college. We had gone our separate ways and hadn’t been in touch since well before either of us had gotten married. It was one of those long, catch-up conversations where we tried to cram in as much as possible about the last ten years of our lives. And then it happened. I saw myself through his eyes. It was the old me that he was seeing. The girl I used to be when I was single, who loved traveling, seeing bands, curled up in a corner reading, or staying up late into the night in deep conversation with friends. It was a shock because I hadn’t recognized her. Read more on Your Tango…

"A.C.O.D." trailer
Catch It In Theaters Tomorrow!

Nearly forty-five percent of American marriages are projected to end in divorce. It’s sad, it’s unfortunate, but it’s true: failed marriages are a major theme in our current social age. In “A.C.O.D.,” Adam Scott stars as Carter, an A.C.O.D. himself, who must revisit the chaos and confusion of his parents’ bitter separation fifteen years prior when his younger brother decides to get married only to discover that his former therapist, played by Jane Lynch, wasn’t a therapist at all, but a researcher studying the effects of divorce on children … but what of the adult children of divorce, the product of the least-parented generation ever? Director Stuart Zicherman’s debut production also stars Richard Jenkins and Catherine O’Hara as Carter’s parents, Amy Poehler as his stepmother (Dad’s wife #3), and Jessica Alba as his love interest. The promising cast is just the beginning — the trailer in and of itself is at once funny and touching, realistic and poignant. A must see!
