DM Link sorry.

It won't end well....

lucidlady Sun 30-Jun-13 13:53:30

Why shouldn't she? He's been an arse and deserves it.

Yama Sun 30-Jun-13 13:53:42

I am not going to click on a DM link. Can you summarise? I am intreagued.

NoSnowJustSand Sun 30-Jun-13 13:56:28

I find him irritating. I don't think I would be posting things on twitter about my ex though.

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Jun-13 13:56:40

Basically she has been on Twitter making sarcy comments and taking the mick out of PH's new alleged girlfriend.

He has been an arse but I think dignified silence is always best.

MisselthwaiteManor Sun 30-Jun-13 13:56:42

If it makes her feel better then good for her. She's not the one in the wrong there.

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Jun-13 13:57:43

I know Hoppus but she it just doesn't seem right, He knows it's winding her up for a start.....

41notTrendy Sun 30-Jun-13 13:57:56

Difficult. It seems petty and playground-ish. But unless someone has sent her the pic why would she follow him and his new woman on twitter? And respond in what seems an undignified manner. Or as its the Dm it's probably not what it seems at all grin

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Jun-13 13:58:53

Well there is that 41 you can never tell with the DM.

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Jun-13 13:59:34

And I didn't mean Yo in the thread title either.

Yama Sun 30-Jun-13 14:01:56

Thanks for the summary. I didn't even notice the Yo but I like it.

Tabliope Sun 30-Jun-13 14:01:58

It would be tempting but better for the sake of their 11 year old child one of the parents acts with some dignity rather than playing this out in the public domain.

AmberLeaf Sun 30-Jun-13 14:05:18

Good for her.

He deserves derision just for tweeting a pic of his dinner for a start!

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Jun-13 14:06:32

Well he is being a huge arse obviously but she doesn't need to join in. And he does nowt for me <irrelevant>

AmberLeaf Sun 30-Jun-13 14:07:40

I think Alexandra is rather humerous about it all.

FayeKorgasm Sun 30-Jun-13 14:08:51

It must be appalling to have your marriage break up in such a public way and then to see your XH start another relationship and have it plastered all over the press. I'm not sure how that would make anyone respond.

Personally, I would hope I could stay silent, but under that amount of stress, I just don't know.

I'm sure that one day she will be grateful to be shot of him!

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Jun-13 14:09:58

I would stop looking at his Twitter

AmberLeaf Sun 30-Jun-13 14:10:18

Humorous?

CalamityKate Sun 30-Jun-13 14:11:48

I think it's quite funny, especially the one where she parodies the photo of the OW! grin

If that's how she feels she wants to handle it then good for her.

I'd bet good money that he'll end up trying to grovel his way back, once the OW sees the light and dumps him. I hope the wife tells him where to go; she would seem to have more class in her little finger than the OW has in her whole body.

AmberLeaf Sun 30-Jun-13 14:13:26

Its not just twitter though is it?

We are looking at this 'story' without the need to go on twitter.

Makes her sound very bitter which she must be but I wouldn't give them the satisfaction. The photo mockery is very silly.

I still think his new midget looks like a chipmunk though <runs>

squoosh Sun 30-Jun-13 14:16:09

Hmmmm, I can understand how massively tempting it must be for her to make a swipe, she must still be so heartbroken, but do I think that a dignified silence is the best way to go in these matters. In the company of her friends she should take the piss as much as she likes.

He really is an arse.

Chottie Sun 30-Jun-13 14:18:06

I'm in the dignified silence camp too. Do Paul H and his ex wife have children?

SilverOldie Sun 30-Jun-13 14:18:29

IMO he has gone from being adored and admired, not just for his baking skills to being an utter plonker and considered to be a stupid fool.

As for his wife, she has more class in her little finger and who could begrudge her for a little slip.

expatinscotland Sun 30-Jun-13 14:22:23

And? She's an adult, she can as she pleases. Rick Stein's ex threw a drink over and slapped her husband's 'ho. Then she got a very good lawyer smile.

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Jun-13 14:24:03

I know expat. It's just my first reaction was 'nooo don't do that, don't even let him know you have seen it' IYKWIM. Don't give the stupid arse the time of day.

I believe they have a son. sad

ItsintheBag Sun 30-Jun-13 14:24:27

I don't blame her, he has made a show of her.Bad enough leaving for OW but all over the news world wide.

But if it was me,I wouldn't give him or her the satisfaction. I would post the picture to friends instead

LottieJenkins Sun 30-Jun-13 14:25:01

PH and his wife have got a son aged about eleven. I have totally gone off him now! I think he is an arsewipe of the highest order!

expatinscotland Sun 30-Jun-13 14:26:24

It's really no one's business but their own. He and his midget both have a son each. She dumped her husband, too, and he ain't maintaining a 'dignified silence' about it.

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Jun-13 14:29:38

It's all very sad. Wonder what Mel & Sue and Mary Berry make of it all.

Tabliope Sun 30-Jun-13 14:31:15

While I'd want to retaliate if she does stuff like this it keeps it in the public eye and risks her son being teased at school. That's who I'd want to protect so I wouldn't do it. I'd hurt him in the divorce courts with a good lawyer and hopefully in time meet someone else.

TheRealFellatio Sun 30-Jun-13 14:32:00

I agree with Sparkling. Childish, catty and undignified. I don't care who did what to who, it's just tacky, tacky, tacky to do this over Twitter.

squoosh Sun 30-Jun-13 14:32:17

Well Mary Berry said 'boys will be boys'.

I'd imagine* Mel & Sue have a different take on it.

*as I don't actually know them I really am just imagining.

TheRealFellatio Sun 30-Jun-13 14:32:48

Sometimes I feel too weary and bewildered for the modern world. grin

squoosh Sun 30-Jun-13 14:34:58

Have a lie down on the chaise longue Fellatio and dab this cologne soaked handkerchief to your brow.

TheRealFellatio Sun 30-Jun-13 14:36:09

Well I am laying down, with a glass of red wine acksherly, but I will have the wafty hankie as well, ta. grin

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Jun-13 14:36:22

I hope Sue Perkins is suitably unimpressed.

OrangeLily Sun 30-Jun-13 14:41:40

Haha that's brilliant. It won't end well but frankly they are insensitive and crass to continue their affair so publicly and in such a disrespectful way.

SirChenjin Sun 30-Jun-13 14:41:47

Whilst I normally favour the dignified silence approach, his wife is bloody funny in her revenge grin

squoosh Sun 30-Jun-13 14:44:22

I think she's quite witty too!

noddyholder Sun 30-Jun-13 14:44:51

Why should she remain silent when he is parading around with teh OW? Never seen his show but saw him on morning tv and pmsl at the thought of him being sexy. Overweight over coiffured and stuffed into a pink shirt yuck!

peggyblackett Sun 30-Jun-13 14:45:28

Fair enough IMO. If that's what makes her feel better then she should go for it.

fedupofnamechanging Sun 30-Jun-13 14:53:31

I think that people who cheat on their spouses and break up their children's stable families should feel too ashamed to post vomity pics on twitter. Seeing as neither of them do, I think it's fair enough if the wife wants to take a swipe. Someone taking the piss does tend to take the shine off a new shag love!

The wife comes across (to me at least) as far more funny and interesting than either PW or his new woman. Hope she finds true love with someone more deserving of her.

5madthings Sun 30-Jun-13 14:57:41

Oh dear, I can see why she is doing it and it us funny but not very nice for their child to have it all over twitter etc sad

He is the arse tho.

SuffolkNWhat Sun 30-Jun-13 15:00:32

I wouldn't be surprised to hear that Sue (at least) will not be returning to GBBO if he does another series. She's got class that Perkins <sage nod>

K8Middleton Sun 30-Jun-13 15:08:18

I am in the key his cockmobile flash car and put salt in his yeast to fuck him up camp. Such a massive, massive public betrayal is awful and I would want to make him suffer if I am totally honest.

With sverything else in my life I am very straight laced and stick to the rules but messing with my marriage and my children publicly? No. I wouldn't be able to stand it.

I would avoid Twitter though grin

DumSpiroSpero Sun 30-Jun-13 15:11:48

It seems that at best he's royally insensitive and at worst he's rubbing he's rubbing her nose in it, while she's been left to pick up the pieces, so I can understand why she reacted.

It is childish & undignified (especially the picture) and she's probably already kicking herself for doing it without anyone else jumping on board.

I'd be amazed to find someone that can claim to have never had a mad moment in the wake of a painful break up - I know I can't.

ClartyCarol Sun 30-Jun-13 15:32:10

Hmm, she's showing him she's still bothered. I've probably got too much pride for my own good, but if I was in her shoes I'd want to come over like I couldn't give a shiny shite about him anymore, or what he does or who he sees.

RedPencils Sun 30-Jun-13 15:39:55

Dignified silence and take him to the cleaners. Dish best serves cold and all that.

Take the piss in private.

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Jun-13 15:40:06

That's just it Clarty. Ignore him and his poncy dinner.

Remotecontrolduck Sun 30-Jun-13 15:42:45

She's quite funny but she's running the risk of looking very bitter. I think she should maintain a dignified silence and leave them to it, I suspect it won't last long!

Remotecontrolduck Sun 30-Jun-13 15:45:39

Less of the 'midget' though please used in a derogatory way, nothing wrong with being short (I'm 4ft 11 and not ugly or someone who'd cheat!)

Remote so sorry to offend you you're gorg.

She's still a chipmunk wink

JaquelineHyde Sun 30-Jun-13 16:00:46

Jesus Christ some of you really do need to get a grip.

Do any of you actually know what was happening in their marriage before they split?...No, I thought not!

Did he have an affair with anyone? No

Did he/she end their current relationships/marriages before beginning to date each other? Yes

So what is the problem...I suppose it would have been better for everyone to remain in miserable relationships and make each other unhappy for the rest of their lives!

As far as his wife's response goes, I would say fine take the mickey out of the food picture if you really can't contain yourself but to take the time and effort to take the piss out of his date is just classless, pathetic and down right nasty.

5madthings Sun 30-Jun-13 16:03:34

The article says he split form his wife amid rumours he was 'close to Marcella' and she then split with her husband days later... But they weren't having an affair... hmm

hmc Sun 30-Jun-13 16:05:54

Having looked at this it gives me the impression that she is obsessed, bitter and angry. I completely understand that she is bitter and angry since she has been betrayed horribly -but I personally would favour the dignified silence. But then it's not about me - it's her marriage and her call how she chooses to react

noddyholder Sun 30-Jun-13 16:06:12

Of course they were having an affair

JaquelineHyde Sun 30-Jun-13 16:08:30

Rumours reported in the Daily Mail and suddenly it is gospel, they were clearly having a fully fledged affair and he deserves to be ripped apart by a load of MNers who actually know nothing hmm grin

IT MAKES NO SENSE!

hmc Sun 30-Jun-13 16:08:38

Quite a strong reaction JacquelineHyde are you or have you been, per chance, the 'other woman' at some stage?

noddyholder Sun 30-Jun-13 16:09:28

grin I agree. jacqueline you seem adamant that they didn't but how could you know?

JaquelineHyde Sun 30-Jun-13 16:10:44

No, but I have been cheated on by my ex husband. I found out 2 months after we married and I was 5 months pregnant.

Does that make my opinion any more valid hmc...No, thought not.

MissStrawberry Sun 30-Jun-13 16:15:51

FFS stop apologising for the DM link. Loads of MNers read it!

I think what she did was fine. She just missed a trick. She should have commented on the fact that Miss Fancy Pants was having to "wait" for her date!

ParsleyTheLioness Sun 30-Jun-13 16:16:30

When you have walked a mile in someone's shoes, you will be qualified to pass judgement...

JaquelineHyde Sun 30-Jun-13 16:16:35

I love the fact that just because I haven't jumped on the 'he's a cunt and deserves everything he gets' bandwagon, I must clearly have had an affair with a married man before hmm hmm

You all really must apply for jobs at The Daily Mail, they would be proud to have writers with your capabilities in jumping to conclusions and whipping up hysteria grin

hmc Sun 30-Jun-13 16:17:20

I was just interested in what perspective you might be coming from

hmc Sun 30-Jun-13 16:17:51

You do seem exceptionally cross today, is it the heat?

noddyholder Sun 30-Jun-13 16:19:16

I don't think anyone is saying he deserves everything he gets as he doesn't seem to have 'got' anything!

MissStrawberry Sun 30-Jun-13 16:21:12

Except maybe his leg over.

JaquelineHyde Sun 30-Jun-13 16:22:27

Far from cross, in fact feeling very happy as DH just bought me in 5 beautiful red roses he has cut from the garden and popped in a vase for with a little note to say he loves me. smile

cocolepew Sun 30-Jun-13 16:24:02

He's a git but she would be much better off not stalking them around t'interweb. The photo parody is cringey.

hmc Sun 30-Jun-13 16:26:38

Well, he sounds like a 'keeper'

TotemPole Sun 30-Jun-13 16:27:04

All three of them are as a bad as each other. Why conduct their relationships in such a public manner?

JaquelineHyde Sun 30-Jun-13 16:28:51

Oh and I really don't get how anyone can fancy Paul (sparkly blue eyes)Hollywood. So it's not that either grin

ClartyCarol Sun 30-Jun-13 16:29:53

I've never known a man to leave his wife or partner without having her replacement lined up (at least).

hmc Sun 30-Jun-13 16:31:13

Hmm - interesting. I suspect that you're right Clarty

Longdistance Sun 30-Jun-13 16:36:28

I think it's quite funny actually. Love the pose with a similar dress on, with her finger on her lips. Classic comedy piss take.

LyingWitchInTheWardrobe Sun 30-Jun-13 16:38:22

She's now plummeted to the same level in my eyes; playing out her relationship for the media... and they have a child.

No moral high ground there at all; it's lost. From having every woman (or at least 90%) on her 'side', she now has far fewer. I think she's a tacky as he is now and people are laughing at her lack of dignity whereas, however unfair this is, his transregressions will soon be forgotten. <shrugs>

JaquelineHyde Sun 30-Jun-13 16:41:06

No man ever Clarty? shock hmm

I know plenty who have left relationship without a 'replacement' lined up.

May I suggest you improve your social circle if this is absolutely true.

LucilleBluth Sun 30-Jun-13 16:50:28

Why is he tweeting pics of his romantic evening with his new woman, he must have an ulterior motive for doing that, and why is the other woman tweeting about anything to do with him when she knows that he has a wife and child on their own and suffering, they are the twats, good on her I say.

Sparklingbrook Sun 30-Jun-13 16:59:07

I don't understand the tweet of an empty plate, what is the significance of that?

cantspel Sun 30-Jun-13 17:04:21

She seems a bit of a bunny boiler stalking him around the internet

And he tweeted a pic of his (not both of their) dinner plates and i can see nothing to indicate it was a romantic date in his tweet.

Wellwobbly Sun 30-Jun-13 17:04:56

I contacted OW just the once. I invited her to think on an article which describes infidelity as abuse and it is classified as domestic violence, that if the OW knows he is married and has children then she is actively participating in the emotional and sexual abuse of other people.

That although nothing can be seen, the betrayed spouse is actually black and blue.

She probably deleted it, but I just wanted her to think about it.

MissStrawberry Sun 30-Jun-13 17:05:19

I suspect to show he has had dinner with his bit on the side.

A plate with food on it would at least be marginally interesting (I love to cook) but not his left overs!

Alexandra - if I knew how to tweet I would be telling you you are better than him and very funny. Just be careful not to come across as bitter (though obviously you have ever right to be imo since your husband has fucked off with someone else.)

MissStrawberry Sun 30-Jun-13 17:06:14

cantspel - you can clearly see 2 plates and 2 red wine glasses.

cantspel Sun 30-Jun-13 17:14:31

you can see one plate in the centre of the picture, 2 half full wine glasses , a water glass, a bread plate and the edge of another plate with a knife and fork.
I cant see how anyone from that picture thinks romantic date as there is nothing in it to indicate who he has had diner with or why. He could have been having diner with his mum for all i know or care.

NotYoMomma Sun 30-Jun-13 17:28:02

Why is everyone obsessed witg dignified silence for the woman?

Was ph dignified in tweeting his date pictures?

Was the ow dignified when she posted a stupid photo of herself waiting for her om?

Why cant a woman poke fun if she wants to? It's all a bit pathetic. I hate that women cant even take the mick without being called bitter.

Even if she is bitter, so? It is all pretty fresh and raw and they haven't exactly been discreet. His statement was all about protecting his son yet he is all over Twitter parading his new gf around.

would be scoffing at them too

ITCouldBeWorse Sun 30-Jun-13 17:30:49

Of course his wife still cares they were married for 15 years until he decided to have a bit of strange.

He is wafting about feeling like a romantic sex god (mid life crisis), so why should she not take the piss.

Imo

Twitchycurtains Sun 30-Jun-13 18:04:52

He has behaved like an utter arse but her posting responses to his tweets and ow's makes her look bitter, it shouldn't matter as under the circumstances who wouldn't be, but she will be the one that will get labelled for it as women often do whilst he will escape relatively unscathed. I'm of the take the high road and take him to the cleaners school of thought. Btw the ow isn't a patch on his wife.

MissStrawberry Sun 30-Jun-13 18:08:56

Fuck that. She has done nothing wrong and just because people have been labelled bitter before doesn't mean we should accept it. Things have to change.

NorbertDentressangle Sun 30-Jun-13 18:11:17

Well I think he was a complete disrespectful arse for posting the 'dinner date for two' pics .

If it made her feel better then good on her!

I think the majority of people can see that she has been wronged by his MLC behaviour and is bound to be on an emotional journey whether it be hurt/anger/upset/betrayal/hatred/whatever.

LetsFaceTheMusicAndDance Sun 30-Jun-13 18:18:46

I can't understand how he managed to persuade one woman to shag him, let alone two.

He makes my flesh crawl.

lovelychops Sun 30-Jun-13 18:23:22

I don't really understand Twitter, does this mean she 'follows' her ex? Or, could someone have forwarded the pics to her?
I wouldn't want to follow an ex...

I don't think the parody pictures are funny, just bit lame. Surely it would be better to show everyone what a fabulous time you were having without him via the medium of Twitter. (Even if you weren't really)

FacebookAnonymous Sun 30-Jun-13 18:32:41

He posted a knobbish picture of an empty plate from a dinner he had obviously shared with his slapper. Insensitive and pathetic much ? (And I say that as someone who used to think he was amazing!)

I think his wifes replies are HILARIOUS. The paraody picture is ace. I'd have to downgrade my look so much to pose as OW that I just couldn't face it wink

Seriously, I think ranting, screaming and being openly hostile (although justified) are best avoided. But she's doing none of that. It does my head in when people who have been cheated on are called to account for their behaviour. Save your criticism for the lying cheats who have ripped a family apart.

And I'm going to sign up to Twitter just to follow her grin Go Team Alexandra!

ExcuseTypos Sun 30-Jun-13 18:40:36

He shouldn't be rubbing her nose in his infidelity by posting pictures of 2 empty dinner plates.

She's every right to respond if she wants to, I think her responses make him look like an even dafter twat than he is, so that's ok with me.

PoppyAmex Sun 30-Jun-13 18:41:20

I don't understand why people are making "bitter" sound worse than "lying, cheating bastard".

What's wrong about feeling bitter when you've been cheated by the father of your child and your marriage has come to an abrupt public end?

I think I'd feel very bitter if DH behaved like PH.

ExcuseTypos Sun 30-Jun-13 18:43:09

I do,think he'll carry on with Bake Off as the programme isn't 'him' iykwim, but I very much doubt he'll be selling very many baking books. Everyone I know thinks he's ruined his career.

Found it quite funny tbh. Perhaps poking fun is her way of coping, and there is plenty to poke fun at. PH is a bellend!

ithaka Sun 30-Jun-13 18:53:56

I always remember someone on a thread describing PH as a 'fat tom cat strutting around' - it really caught him, for me and that is how I picture him.

Better to be bitter than an arrogant cheat, I say.

MarmaladeTwatkins Sun 30-Jun-13 18:54:57

The former Mrs Fattywood has shot up in my estimation.

I bet she is a MNer. She seems funny and a bit of a sarky cow. Therefore, I like her.

I don't see why she should have to take it lying down. She has done fuck all wrong. If she wants to take the piss out of the fat, bronzed, artery-clogged buffoon and his chipmunkish new bit of skirt then good for her.

ExcuseTypos Sun 30-Jun-13 18:59:38

Did anyone see the TV advert for his Baking show, a few months ago?

He said that kneading bread was good for getting rid of 'bingo wings'.

I thought he was a cheeky, crusty, cunty bastard for saying that. Not sure why, it just have me the rage.

flippinada Sun 30-Jun-13 19:00:22

Poppy 'cos some people seem to think women being 'bitter' is just the worst thing ever. I'm not sure why. Sometimes it's quite normal to feel bitter over bad treatment, I think.

stepawayfromthescreen Sun 30-Jun-13 19:03:07

I saw that photo on twitter and thought it was very funny, very witty. Of course she's bitter. I think it's worse when wronged parties pretend they're fine and dandy when they're screaming inside. Far better to unleash a bit of the anger in a safe way. Even better if you can take the piss in a witty, clever way like this! And as for the person who said people can't help falling in love with someone else etc, what rubbish! We're all in control of our actions. A man who walks away from a fifteen year marriage with a child involved, is because his head is turned by some other younger (but not prettier) totty is irresponsible.

MarmaladeTwatkins Sun 30-Jun-13 19:03:31

"Did anyone see the TV advert for his Baking show, a few months ago?

He said that kneading bread was good for getting rid of 'bingo wings'."

I wonder if you can knead bread with your belly? Give it a try, Paul.

stepawayfromthescreen Sun 30-Jun-13 19:05:25

it fucks me off greatly that women are always supposed to act in a fragrant, delicate, dignified manner.
It's so fake and dishonest.

MissStrawberry Sun 30-Jun-13 19:05:56

grin @MT.

MarmaladeTwatkins Sun 30-Jun-13 19:07:12

Same here, stepaway.

She doesn't HAVE to behave in ANY way. She isn't the one who ballsed up her marriage to run off with a Disney woodland creature. A bit of gentle piss-taking is tame compared to what a lot of us would do in the same situation...

ExcuseTypos Sun 30-Jun-13 19:07:45

grin Marmalade.

Anyone got twitter? Maybe he'd like that bit of advice?

it fucks me off greatly that women are always supposed to act in a fragrant, delicate, dignified manner.

Exactly. Keep it quiet and dignified when someone turds on you. It's the ladylike thing to do. <gag>

expatinscotland Sun 30-Jun-13 19:12:43

PICK found it funny, too.

expatinscotland Sun 30-Jun-13 19:13:06

I, sorry.

carolthesecretary Sun 30-Jun-13 19:13:27

I would think far more of her if she rose above it and stayed silent.

He might be an arse but she is making herself look like an idiot.

scottishmummy Sun 30-Jun-13 19:15:07

Good on his wife,she's a funny lady.why should she be demure when her ex is shagger
I like her posts,I like her take on all of this.shes got it going on
I will follow,laugh and enjoy

flippinada Sun 30-Jun-13 19:17:31

His behaviour has been less than exemplary that's for sure.

He used to be a benevolent baking despot. Now he's a sleazy dough manipulator.

MarmaladeTwatkins Sun 30-Jun-13 19:18:13

I've got Twitter.

<sighs and trundles off to Twitter to add herself to more celebrity's banned lists>

forehead Sun 30-Jun-13 19:18:20

It is probably her way of coping.
I wouldn't do it myself, but she is entitled to be 'undignified.
Her ex is a gross and actually believes he is some sex God.
I think he only tweeted that picture because his wife refused to take him back. What a tosset

Why is silence the ultimate goal?

'My husband has behaved like a twat but I'm the better person. I said nothing' hmm

Bugger that for a game of soldiers.

Much more satisfying if the adulterous git lies awake at night worrying what she'll say next. If she maintains 'a dignified silence' he'll be sleeping fine won't he?

MissStrawberry Sun 30-Jun-13 19:21:14

How exactly is she making herself look like an idiot, carol?

kennyp Sun 30-Jun-13 19:24:58

she's suddenly getting a lot of airtime, is his ex wife. couldn't she just lie low like she always did before? unless i am missing something i had never seen her in the papers before.

it makes her look rather daft, imo.

I think leaving your family for someone you've known all of five minutes is hugely undignified and makes you look like a right arsehole, personally.

That kind of behaviour's a lot worse than poking fun at someone who's been unkind to you.

IMO.

congresstart Sun 30-Jun-13 19:29:56

Of course she is bloody bitter and she has every right to be, why should she shut up and say/do nothing?
I am another one who hates the whole women must remain in dignified silence when they have been shat on. They were together for 15 years and have a child, so i'm not really surprised she is bothered by the twitter pictures.

FacebookAnonymous Sun 30-Jun-13 19:30:57

But maintaining a dignified silence means that the poor cheating shaggers don't get enough ammo to label a wife as a psycho Ex (and it's no wonder he shagged someone else what with her being so crazy and all grin )

MarmaladeTwatkins Sun 30-Jun-13 19:31:42

Do people actually really believe that revenge doesn't make you feel better?

I'd LOVE to be that pious.

MarmaladeTwatkins Sun 30-Jun-13 19:33:45

I don't even think that it's her that is being undignified, either.

Old Salty Arbuckle is the one.

1. Runs off with bird who wouldn't look at him twice if he weren't a famous bread botherer.

2. Tweets about dates with the new woman, despite having a child who can read the Tweets, presumably.

3. Is a fat, porcupine-haired knacker.

Yeah dignity is over rated, she's having some fun.

However, as a short- arse I wish she'd leave out the pint sized references- she will lose out on an army of um small fans.

grin at bread botherer

I liked 'sleazy dough manipulator'

#breadbotherer do you think it would "trend" grin

PoppyAmex Sun 30-Jun-13 19:44:44

euphemism I don't think she made the reference to small people; it was a friend who replied to her tweet

"She isn't the one who ballsed up her marriage to run off with a Disney woodland creature." grin

Lizzylou Sun 30-Jun-13 19:45:03

I think he's got off lightly.
Bet that "woodland creature" (good one) has as much sense of humour as a brick.
Bloody good for soon to be ex Mrs H.

ExcuseTypos Sun 30-Jun-13 19:46:20

Thisis, it was her friend who referred to the pint sized one, not Alexadra.

ExcuseTypos Sun 30-Jun-13 19:47:04

Sorry didn't see your post Poppy.

Ah - she's done well to resist!

MarmaladeTwatkins Sun 30-Jun-13 19:51:47

Alexandra, if you're reading, PM me.

I have some great, but legal, revenge tips.

Southeastdweller Sun 30-Jun-13 19:51:51

Why slebs and slebs by proxy feel the need to wash their dirty laundry in public whilst leaving a permanent online fingerprint is beyond me sometimes. In her case, I see from her Twitter bio she's an occasional foodie writer so maybe this is part of a P.R campaign to get her own book deal (because we all need yet another cookbook, don't we?).

So tacky and undignified. She is a walking embarrassment who should be thinking more of her son. Grow up, love.

Dignified silence is best of course, she probably knows that herself too.

But people are human beings with feelings and sometimes, in the moment, that can go out the window when you are out of your head with grief/rage/heartbreak etc.

ExcuseTypos Sun 30-Jun-13 19:58:46

She's not a walking embarrassment South, she's made a comment about a public photo and posed for a very funny photo. What embarrassing about that?

timidviper Sun 30-Jun-13 19:58:56

I imagine that, when you are in the public eye, being quiet and dignified can feel like being a doormat. Being silent on it does seem like letting him have his bread cake and eat it.

He made his choice to have an affair, she is entitled to respond as she sees fit and, unless it is harming anybody else, it is not for the rest of us to criticise. I imagine, if their son is going to be teased or picked on, it is likely to be for having a father run off in such a public way, rather than for this.

ClartyCarol Sun 30-Jun-13 20:05:49

I suspect she's just feeding his monstrous ego with all this. He'll be all smug and pompous "You know, she really needs to move on, but it's almost like she's obsessed with me. What can I do? <pained sigh>"

Don't imagine he's worrying one little bit.

And Jacqueline Hyde - my social circle is just dandy, thanks. Not sure about your social skills though.

MissStrawberry Sun 30-Jun-13 20:06:13

I can't believe all the shit being spouted about MrsH not being dignified and looking daft. It is bollocks. How exactly is she looking daft? She is letting the world know she is hurting as her husband has fucked off whereas HE gets off scot free when he has been cheating on his wife ffs

He is the one in the wrong. He cheated. She hasn't done anything wrong but I am sure she thinks it is all worth it when her book sells? Bloody hell.

Imo if you're gonna be 'undignified', you may as well be funny while you're at it. I'd feel less humiliated if I took control of how I was being perceived in her situation.

Beats crying in public.

MarmaladeTwatkins Sun 30-Jun-13 20:14:57

Hmmmm, all of this "she's an embarrassment" stuff really riles me up.

It's victim-blaming. Pinning the responsibility for the man's shitty behaviour on the woman. Like when a man is being violent to his partner, "why doesn't she just leave him?" Huh? Why doesn't HE leave HER? "Why doesn't SHE stop embarrassing herself on Twatter?" Why doesn't HE stop flaunting his relationship with the OW on Twatter? If anyone is embarrassing themselves, it's PH and his new bird. Posting pictures of herself looking like a twelve year old playing dress-up "waiting patiently" for her date with a man whose marriage she helped to break up. THAT is undignified. HIM posting pictures of his empty plate from the meal he just shared with his OW. THAT is embarrassing.

The onus really isn't on the ex-wife here to be dignified...

Southeastdweller Sun 30-Jun-13 20:23:04

So you all are privy to what went on then, are you? You know exactly why they broke up?

ExcuseTypos Sun 30-Jun-13 20:26:13

No I don't expect anyone knows that South.

We do know he's a twat though.

flippinada Sun 30-Jun-13 20:37:22

Without knowing either party involved, I think it's entirely fair to say that PH has behaved like a monumental arse.

MissStrawberry Sun 30-Jun-13 20:37:48

<loves MT's post>

MarmaladeTwatkins Sun 30-Jun-13 20:40:54

Well, his wife says on Twitter "Soon to be a member of the First Wives Club"

For those of you who haven't seen the film, it's about women who've been dumped for younger models...

JaquelineHyde Sun 30-Jun-13 21:34:24

Sorry if I offended you Clarty but you did say that every man you had ever know that had left a relationship had had a replacement already lined up.

I am truly shocked and quite saddened by that and if I was you (which I'm not and you are probably glad of that) I would be looking to extend my social circle because by the sounds of it the only men you know/have know are cunts and that is never a good thing.
