The Week’s Worst Relationship Advice
Abby gets racy and Tila Tequila’s new “guide” to life
Oh, Abby! This week Abby fields a letter from a woman who is miffed because her husband hooked up with his sister-in-law (with his brother’s permission and participation!) six months before she met him. The woman loathes both the brother and his wife for this and every time she sees them, gets extremely upset. This all happened nine or ten years ago! Abby says, “No one can blame you for finding these people repulsive, and what happened so long ago was no one’s brightest moment – including your husband’s.”
Repulsive? Sure it’s kind of gross – far yuckier that he kind of had sex with his brother – but while Abby recommends she forgive all parties, I think she should get some shrinkage. Not because it’s so far-fetched to be skeeved that he banged his brother and sister-in-law, but because she’s going to need help processing this forgiveness. And what up with waiting until ten years after the fact? This should’ve been nipped in the bud.
Okay, so I haven’t actually read this book – it’s not even out until December – but Tila Tequila just “wrote” an advice book called Hooking Up with Tila Tequila: A Guide to Love, Fame, Happiness, Success, and Being the Life of the Party, and I’m going to declare it useless without even having cracked it. One tidbit that’s been leaked advises women to avoid putting out as long as possible and then screw him like a porn star. Except for the “screw him like a porn star” part, this is the exact same advice my mom gave me!
