  • Is “Bethenny Gets Divorced” Coming to Bravo?

    By Ilana Angel

    March 15, 2012 | 11:50 am

    Remember when Bethenny was funny and you were pulling for her to find love and happiness?  Neither do I.  She has been so unappealing for so long that it’s impossible to now remember a time when I liked her.  She is bad television, and her show has now become focused entirely on...

  • Is Marriage Like Prison?

    By Ilana Angel

    March 1, 2012 | 11:33 am

    I had an interesting discussion about marriage today.  I was talking to a man in his 50’s who is divorced and dating.  He is Jewish, educated, successful, funny, handsome, and a failure at marriage.  We’ll call him Moshe. Moshe can clearly remember the moment that his wife, his soul...

    My son is turning 16 this week.  He is a remarkable human being and I am blessed and honored to be his mother.  To mark this most special of occasions, I want to share 16 things that I think he should know.

  • A Conversation with Brandi Glanville

    By Ilana Angel

    January 12, 2012 | 6:25 pm

    This week I had to mail a couple of packages.  I waited in line at the post office for 15 minutes because it makes perfect sense that such a busy location would only have one employee working. When I finally got my turn, the woman who was “helping” me, was a complete moron.

    I...

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    January 4, 2012 | 6:39 pm

    My boyfriend and I haven’t even been dating a year and we’re already fighting about a divorce settlement.  Not our divorce settlement, but how much Kobe Bryant’s wife should get.  And then Mel Gibson’s wife.  And somehow it all circles back to Ron Burkle.

    In California, the...

  • Must You Respect a Mother to Love Her Child?

    By Ilana Angel

    December 29, 2011 | 3:17 pm

    I got divorced before my son turned one, and he has had a stepmother from the time he was about four.  My ex-husband dated a few women before he got remarried, and I was always nervous about them.  My son was so young that I worried these women would not love him, or take care of...

  • Kobe Bryant: The Player vs. The Player

    By Ilana Angel

    December 19, 2011 | 9:01 am

    I remember when Bryant came to play for the Lakers.  The city was excited and even someone like me, who is missing the sports gene, was looking forward to seeing this kid play.  He was the future of the game and we were thrilled he was in Los Angeles.  We all felt proud of him.

  • Why Kim Kardashian’s fairy tale failed

    By Danielle Berrin

    November 1, 2011 | 12:15 pm

    I admit it: I watched the Kim Kardashian “fairy tale” wedding last week. I was about a month late, I know, but it was still pre-divorce, and as fantasies go, this multi-million dollar extravaganza looked more like a nightmare. The designer Vera Wang, who designed not one, but...

    October 31, 2011 | 11:43 am

    Well, it was only a matter of time.  How much time?  72 days to be exact.  Kim Kardashian is filing for divorce today.  It is fascinating that this insanely beautiful, yet painfully untalented porn star, is famous.  Even more shocking is that she earned 17 million dollars for her...

    I have two friends, both with young children, who are currently going through divorces.  It is sad for the kids, and sad for my friends.  I met with one of these friends for dinner on Sunday night and we talked about all the things she is going through.  It was a trip down memory...

  • Next time, I’ll try the pre-nup

    By Heather Moss

    October 25, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    Separated is a vague and unpleasant term.

    It's the state of being in flux -- the gray area between no longer married but not yet divorced. A divorce decree gives you back your life as a single person, but being separated keeps you in love limbo.

    Many guys I've gone out with since I...

    September 13, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    Whatever happened to Marcy Asher?

    I know the answer to that question -- I've known it for a year now -- but I also don't know the answer, the one that helps us make sense not just of one woman's tragic arc, but of good and evil, of life and faith.

    Marcy Asher was the first girl I...

  • Suddenly single

    By Heather Moss

    April 19, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    The last time I went out on a date was as a somewhat naive 22-year-old student. Of course that was 15 years ago, when "You've got mail" was something you heard from your mom. Now I'm facing the new realities of dating as a 37-year-old recently single mother of three.

    After 12 years...

    A Civil Tone

    Last week's Letters section offered a fascinating window on the views and feelings of our community (Letters, Feb. 23). Most of the letters were thoughtful, informative and passionate. Two stepped over the line.

    October 12, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Custody Battle
     
    Wendy Jaffe's cover story on divorce focused primarily on the custody battles while neglecting alternative forms of dispute resolution, such as mediation, which can lead to far more peaceful results ("Who Gets the Shul?" Oct. 6).
