Bossy does not want to talk about Jon Gosselin, star of reality TV show Jon and Kate Plus Eight. In fact Bossy has no idea how that photo of Jon and his new girlfriend found its way on this blog — Bossy will have to talk to management about that.
And when Bossy does talk to management, she will whisper to management that Jon Gosselin’s new girlfriend is not only 22-years-old but is the daughter of the plastic surgeon who performed the tummy tuck on Jon’s wife Kate because Kate ushered Jon’s eight babies into the world in a belly that swelled to the size of a basketball that was pregnant with six basketballs. At once.
But what Bossy does want to talk about are the relationship professionals who are weighing in on Jon and Kate’s divorce, and specifically the brief time that passed before Jon Gosselin was seen out and about with someone new.
“You need to take a little time off from dating, because there is this rebound period,” said dating coach Patti Feinstein. “He’s probably feeling that he wasn’t getting enough attention from his wife, so he’s all lonely, and he needs to be stroked up.”
Stroked up really, professional Patti Feinstein?
And there are other opinions. Wait one year before introducing a new relationship to the children, says psychotherapist M. Gary Neuman — even though Bossy is pretty sure M. Gary Neuman is this guy.
Meanwhile relationship expert Nancy Slotnick finds fault with both Jon and Kate. “Their whole TV show is based on them being parents and caring for all of these kids… and both of them seem totally wrapped up in themselves,” Slotnick said.
Bossy isn’t sure what to think, and if she knew what to think she sure wouldn’t say it here on a blog that would never stoop to mention Jon and his 22-year-old girlfriend, just like Bossy wouldn’t write a post asking for her council’s opinion of Jon and Kate Plus Eight Minus Two.
Relationships are complicated and Bossy doesn’t profess to know what is going on inside one of them. And Bossy certainly wouldn’t want a relationship professional weighing in on her own marriage without all the details.
But supposing a relationship expert did take interest in Bossy’s marriage. Bossy thinks maybe she could sum up their findings in this way: Gene Rayburn? Rhoda’s Joe? Bossy’s real husband: please stand up.
Which is what today’s Ten-Word Challenge is all about. In exactly ten words, can you tell Bossy and her council what a relationship expert might say about your relationship?
