Real Chick Lit: “The Smart Girl’s Guide To Getting Even”

After J. broke up with me my senior year in high school, I was pissed. Livid. Just a few weeks earlier, he told me he loved me, we went to prom and all was glorious in the world. What the heck? After a few weeks of having an intimate rebound relationship with a box of Kleenex, I became dead-set on making his life as unpleasant as he had made mine.

In order to exact my revenge, my best friend and I went to the mall where the kids who went to his high school always hung out. We approached every high-school aged girl we could find, asked if she knew J., and then told her to stay away from him and his terrible case of back-ne. Mature? Hell no. Satisfying? Undeniably.

Though I think my plan was rather brilliant, I probably would have received some nice inspiration had Alison Grambs’ book “The Smart Girl’s Guide To Getting Even” been around in 1994. In it, she offers all sorts of perfectly legal yet wholly satisfying ways to get back at the Js — i.e. the complete and total jerks — of the world. After the jump, find a sampling of her I-will-not-go-down-quietly strategies. Keep reading »

Actress Lisa Raye Attacks Turks & Caicos Premier

Infidelity, betrayal and abuse are very difficult things to forgive, but most people resist the urge to cause a partner bodily-harm. However, there are some women that go against their better judgment and exact revenge on their guy. Most recently, the Premier of the Turks & Caicos Islands, Michael Misick, claims that his estranged wife, actress Lisa Raye McCoy-Misick, attacked him at his mansion in Turks & Caicos. She claims that she was refused entry to their home and was forcibly removed. In any event, both were taken to the hospital for bite injuries. “Whilst it is my sincere wish to avoid unnecessary conflict, I shall not be intimidated, nor shall those individuals whose job it is to protect and represent me,” said a statement released by Lisa Raye. The Misick’s separated after rumors of an affair between the premier and BET on-air personality Rocsi surfaced.

While I hate to admit that I’m throwing up a girl-power fist right now, I can’t help to think of all the other famous and not-so famous women that got revenge on their guys for infidelity or mistreatment, whether real or perceived. So check out this list after the jump. Keep reading »
