I’ve read stories about bad break ups where the girl won’t stop calling the guy or the guy buys too many teddy bears to try to win her back. Sometimes, when you’re breaking up, or rather, being broken up with, you’re heart starts calling the shots and you might lose control. Or you might sit on a couch crying until the ice cream is gone, and then cry some more when you’ve gone to the store for more ice cream.
New York Magazine asked 15 celebrities what happened when they broke up and a lesson they might have learned. Two of those celebrities were none other than two of our housewives, Melissa Gorga and Luann de Lesseps.
When Melissa from RHONJ was asked about her break up, she responded with a very embarrassing story: “I might have hung onto a car window and been like “don’t leave!” as they were driving away. And the car actually starts to move and you’re still hanging onto the window, and you realize that person is such an idiot and is not good for you. Fortunately I’ve had the most amazing marriage and I have a great husband, but I kissed frogs before I got married, that’s for sure.”
Luann de Lesseps, former RHONY housewife, had an awkward experience before realizing that she needed to remove herself from the situation: “I caught my boyfriend in a very awkward position with another woman … you don’t know what that person looked like. I thought, Oh my God, all right, it’s time to move on. It actually catapulted me to move to New York.” She really left us wondering exactly what was going on and what that person looked like.
Hopefully these stories make you feel better. It happens to even the best of us, of course. What are some of your worst break up stories?
