Gossip?

Does any one have gossip about their friends/family you are dying to vent?

My friend slept with her married boss about a year ago. It was really tough for us to get through this because I am really really not judgemental but this just stuck me. She just slept with him again on a business trip this weekend.

Oh, and it just got out that a frenemy of mine made her FI pay for her ultimatium e-ring ring on HER credit card that her parents pay. I have known this for a while because we used to be close and I am gloating that it came out (not from me)  and that now every one knows and is judging them :)

    Wow. Just wow. I hope they're basking in the glow of embarrassment. How did that get out, if you don't mind me asking? I'm just curious about the circumstances surrounding that situation.

    I have nothing to share. I wish I did.

    Well, this girl is really spoiled (as you can tell) and she got drunk last week and complained that her parents were not giving her enough money for her wedding. Apparantly a friend (who is just as spoiled) said something to the effect of "well, just put extra stuff on the credit card your parents pay." This is when said bride said the credit card was maxed out because a lot of the room was taken up from the ring and her parents only pay the minimum. You can only guess how it exploded from there ;)

    Oh do I ever!

    A girl im kind of just FB friends with but went to highschool with and talk to occasionally announced a few months ago that her and her husband of 5 years (with 2 kids) were splitting up - no reason stated. Thats fine and I gave my condolences. Within the month, she had updated her relationship status to in a relationship and its to a guy who only JUST turned 20 (she is 27). I cant help but give a major side eye to her for the whole situation and the guy, what the hell 20 year old guy wants to date a 27 year old mother of 2 in the middle of a divorce?? I dont get it at all. Better still, her husband and her are selling hteir house and I looked it up online and theyre asking over 150,000 for it, it is less than 1000sqft with tiny as hell bedrooms in an awful location. I dont know why im surprised anymore.

    WOW. Nebb, that is ridiculous. I am guessing (and I am sure you are too) that the 20 year old was the cause of the breakup from the beginning?
    I have acquaintance (23years old) who just broke up the marriage of a 32 year old woman with two kids. They are now together and going strong but I sincerely doubt it will last.

    I am just shocked people do this with kids involved.

    I have a feeling it was something of a quarter/mid life crisis type of thing. I think she got tired of being responsible and wants the fun of a fling again - even before they announced the split I was talking to her at like 11 at night and she had some guy over "for a visit".
  • Options
    Yeah, I know people who have to lash out like that. That is sketchy she had been working up to this for a while though too. Just be honest with yourself.

    Oh, and, I have a friend who got a DUI for being found passed out in his car at a bar parking lot with the keys in the ignition. He wasn't driving and all my friends are up in arms that he got a DUI under this technical part of the law. I am the only one saying I am glad he wasn't actually driving and got this reality check. I feel like a bad friend, but I also don't.

    I kept my composure last night when I found out that my husband's boss, who mind you is getting married on Saturday, has been sleeping with another girl basically since he was stationed here in January.  My husband knew about this about 2 months ago but decided to not tell me because well I would have lost all respect for him and in the military it's all about respect.  Last night it just happened to be a leap of faith that we were at a friend's house and I realized that she lived directly behind him.  So H and I called him to stop over and say hello and he was there with his little friend.  H is telling me this as we are walking up to the door.  I damn near dropped my wine glass as his boss opens up the bdoor and gives me a big hug.  It just makes me sick...  this man is supposed to be a role model.

    Im still friends with my ex from highschool, we talk on a regular basis and he is comfortable telling me a lot about his life. He has been with his girlfriend since him and I broke up, 9 years ago, and as far as he is concerned she is perfect for him, she is the only girl he can ever see himself being in a relationship with and he loves her to death..

    Problem, he cheats CONSTANTLY on her. He has been since they started dating. He has told me briefly some of it, and I give him shiit for it, but he almost compulsively cheats on her. The sad thing is that I dont understand how a guy could cheat for that long and that often without the GF knowing about it, she MUST know. This same guy also refuses to get married, he has put his foot down and its just not happening, yet they stay together.

    I think she must be crazy, i dont get it.

    I'm going to use this to bitch.

    I know my BMs aren't required to do anything but stand up for me at my wedding, but my one BM isn't coming to either of my showers (2) or my bachelorette.  She's my friend, and it bothers me that she doesn't care.  She could have had a ride to either of my showers.  I don't care about a gift - but just to have here there would have been nice.  My mom emailed all my BMs to just ask for help with ideas for bridal shower games and she was the only one who didn't respond.  Plus, she's just been a generally shitty and flaky friend.  It hurts.

    I don't have juicy gossip per se...but I am in the middle of 'ending' a friendship with a gf I have had since university...

    Long story short, I have been friends with her for about 12 years but over the past 4 or so years we have grown somewhat distant. I have seen a huge shift in her personality and I find that she isn't the same person she was when we were really close. We have had our ups and downs but most recently she got upset when I drove into Toronto (I live in a suburb about 40 minutes away) to visit a friend who lives in the same neighbourhood as her. She got all up in arms because I didn't have the decency to drop by their house to say hello when I was in the city all day. We wrote some emails back and forth and really didn't see eye to eye on the topic. It was clear that there were underlying issues that she wasn't ready to talk about. I told her the ball was in her court, I was prepared to sit down and talk anytime she wanted to. We haven't spoken since then (this was in early May?) and according to a mutual friend the friend has said that "I obviously don't want to be friends with her", even though I left the door open for us to reconcile.

    Funny thing is, I am okay. I get the feeling she wants me to beg for her friendship. I am at a point in my life where I don't feel the need to do that. She would probably say that if she was important enough to me I would make an effort. I don't know if I am being stubborn but I am not going to grovel. She was pissed at me for something stupid and she clearly has other issues with me she hasn't raised...she can come to me if she wants to talk but I am not going to chase her like a love-sick thirteen year old boy. I am too old for girl drama. I didn't like it in grade 8 and I don't like it now.

    There's my gossip...nothing juicy but nice to vent a bit!

    Edited: I corrected a bit of the story...the mutual friend told me what the other friend thought. The mutual friend actually thinks I am in the right here and that the other friend is over reacting. I wish I had used pseudonyms for this, it would have made it easier to explain. Sigh, fail.

    My best friend was having an affair with a married man for over a year.  She was their babysitter.  She would talk to me about it and wanted me to be happy for her and she would get pissed because I wasn't jumping up and down for her.

    Yikes. I would be terrified to be involved with a married man for whom I was babysitting. That's just too close for comfort. Not that I would ever be involved with a married man, but that's just strange.

    The wife actually works with my mom too so it was really hard for me when my mom would ask how best friend was doing.  I think the only reason why she was so open with me about the affair was because I live half way across the country right now and she felt safe telling me things.  I don't understand it, I never will.  I have nannied and babysat for many families and I would never even think of doing something like that.

    Ooooo.  I have gossip, and theres no way I would tell anyone IRL.  I'm actually very sad about it.  I have an aquaintance that I've known for many years, but only distantly.  She's a very nice person.  I've just found out that her husband is having a full-on second relationship.  Like meeting people together and going out with friends as a couple.  That's how I found out.  My aquaintance has no idea, at least I don't think she does.  Gaaaah!  I'm not close enough to her to try and help.  So I just feel sad for her.  Thanks for listening, everyone.  Plegh.

    It does hurt ... my MOH is my best friend that I've had for 33 years already.  My first marriage was crap and I didn't really have anything but a JP ceremony and dinner out.  So it's not like this is her second time being my MOH ... she couldn't even get off of work for my first *wedding*.

    We're doing a lot more for this one and I want it to be special ...not a big to-do by any means,  but I basically have to beg her to do anything with me or damn, just to chit chat. And she's single, so her inability to help me at all is based on butting into her social life not because she's taking care of her family.  She leaves her 14 yo son home alone a lot, too.  And I'm getting married in 28 days ... so I'm pretty sure we're not having a shower, either.  I don't mind, but she didn't even ask.

    Speaking of FB.  I am FB friends with this girl I went to HS with.  She got knocked up senior year (whatever, no biggie) and then had another kid with the same guy. 

    Well they both turned into crack heads (and her a stripper at the grossest strip joint around) and lost custody of her kids (to his mom).

    Well she just had another kid with some rando, and posts all the time about how awesome her life is and how jealous people are of her.

    Her status update today was "Finally off probation and cant wait to head out on a c!nt hunt tonight and beat this bitches ass".

    Klassy.

    I judge her daily, but her updates are so facinating I cant delete her.

    No current gossip, but here's a story from my past.

    S is married to M, they have a 5 year old daughter A. S was 25 at the time of the story.
    Now M frequently cheated on S, and so she would cheat on him to "make it even." Well one day she tells me all about how she is currently having sex with her associate B. B is 17, and has a 16 year old girlfriend who was 8 months pregnant at the time. S also slept with one of her female associates earlier that year. S also tried to sleep with my Dh long before we were dating but he wanted nothing to do with someone who would cheat on their husband while having a kid.
    So S is married to M, sleeping with B and another female associate.
    She tried to get an affair going with another associate, C (who was 18). Now C's girlfriend was crazy possessive (as well as 5 months pregnant) and called our company hotline with the entire story.
    S never understand why she was fired, because there's nothing wrong with a 25 year old sleeping with her 17 year old associate, or trying to sleep with her 18 year old associate, or the 45 year old guy she met at Ocean City, or...

    And this is the same trainwreck friend from my "my mom doesn't love me" story I've told before on E.
  • Options
    A "friend" of mine announced recently that she's pregnant with kid #2. She swears that her and her H "planned" this ("We're trying for a boy"), but they currently have over $10K in credit card debt and within the past year had roomates move in with them because they couldn't afford rent.

    I found out about the pregnancy via FB, which doesn't bother me, because I really don't care about being close with this girl. But it got back to me a few days ago through mutual friends (Who have no reason to make this up) that this girl didn't want to tell me in person "because she knows how desperate I am to have a baby, but DH won't let me". She's apparently aware of how jealous this is going to make me and was just trying to "be nice and not rub it in my face that she'll have 2 kids when I'm not allowed to have one".

     I have to agree, when I was younger I would have had stories to share but as I get older I'm to tired for drama.
    But that is always my thought when people gripe about the circumstances they are in my question is always "what are you going to do about it"? They usually dont have an answer just move into another complaint.
