What People Wish They Knew About Divorce after Decades Together

When we plan our wedding, when we stand on the alter and say “I do,” and perhaps for many years after, we can’t imagine our life without our chosen partner. While some people only have a short time together before they divorce, there are the couples who have decades together before they decide that divorce is the only option.

This may be after numerous attempts at couple’s therapy, many years of a strained relationship, or even comes as a complete blindside to one of the partners. While this process may be exceptionally confusing and painful, there are some facts that many people wish they knew while going through the process and in the time after the divorce. These are the things that people wish they knew before, or while going through the process, that would have made the experience easier than it was. These tidbits would have made many realize that things were not as dire and permanent as they may have felt.

What are some of these things? You may not be able to live in the same place that you have lived for years, and you may need to adjust your standard of living. This may sound awful, but it does not have to be. When we think back at what we were able to live on, and the contentment we experienced with much less than we have now, we are able to realize that the adjustment may not be as bad as we imagine.

This is actually the opportunity for an exciting new start for you. Who wants to roam around that big house anyway? The kids are grown and have homes of their own, it is too much space, and far too much upkeep. Get a cute place, in a great area, that is simple to take care of. Did the two of you have a relationship where one spouse worked and one spouse helped raise the kids and take care of the house? Now is your time to shine and do all those things that you dreamed of doing. Volunteer, take some classes, work part-time, your options are endless and exhilarating.

Do you fear that you are going to spend the rest of your life alone, and never find love again? Think again! Unfortunately, at least 50 percent of marriages end in divorce. That leaves a lot of options and lonely people looking to meet a new match. While the idea of dating may be nerve wracking at first, it can be thrilling if you give it a chance. Are there great qualities about you that your partner always took for granted?

Perhaps there is someone out there looking for someone with those exact qualities. Maybe there is someone out there who treats you in a way that you never knew was possible. Of course you need to take the time to heal and be ready for a new romance or dating, but once you are, the possibilities are endless. This is your chance to date and do all those things you never got a chance to do in your previous relationship. Your ex hated to dance? Take some ballroom dancing lessons with your new potential suitor. Did your ex prefer to stay at home, now is your chance to see the world with a willing and excited partner.

The bottom line is that life does not end just because your relationship did. Things could not have been ideal if they ended in divorce, and there were likely numerous things that did not make you happy. While it may take some time, healing, and getting to know who you are as the individual you are now, this truly can be a fresh start and a reinvention of self.

You now have the chance to explore all the things you always wanted to do, but were not supported in doing. You have a chance to explore, learn, and put your unique mark on the world. When you are ready, you have a chance to meet someone who appreciates you for the unique person you are, and who has goals and interests in line with yours. Life is far from over, in fact some would argue it can just begin. Do not drop anchor, do not allow yourself to feel that things are hopeless when you divorce after decades, because there are many years and many adventures ahead if you are open to them.

Here’s The ‘Hocus Pocus’ Remake You Never Knew You Wanted

Something “ratchet” this way comes. 

Todrick Hall, the former “American Idol” contestant and famed Beyoncé medley master, has taken aim at the beloved Halloween classic “Hocus Pocus” on his new MTV show “Todrick.” After bringing Belle from “Beauty and the Beast” to the hood and back and showing Leonardo DiCaprio the door in his “Titanic” parody “Titaniqua,” it was only a matter of time before the Sanderson sisters got the Todrick treatment. 

In “Hocus Broke-us” the trio of witches that haunted your childhood nightmares (originally played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy) are still on the hunt for eternal youth, but now go by different names: Seyoncé, Kelly and Michelle. After touring the underworld for 22 years, the Sanderson sisters must now adapt to a world of hoverboards, trap music and Fetty Wap. Even Midler’s “I Put A Spell On You” gets a 2015 update. 

The last time we heard about “Hocus Pocus 2”, the Divine Miss M herself expressed an interest in breaking out her buck teeth and broom during an Reddit AMA last year. ”You have to go to send in your cards to the Walt Disney company,” she said. “The ball’s in their court.” 

Maybe the power of Todrick can get Disney to the negotiating table.

5 Things You Probably Never Knew About Lucille Ball

Today, August 6th, would have been Lucille Ball’s 104th birthday! Though America’s favorite redhead passed away long ago, in 1989, she’s still very much alive in our hearts and homes as millions of viewers tune in to watch her hysterical antics on our beloved show, “I Love Lucy.” 

We know that Lucille — or “Lucy” as we like to think of her — could make us laugh like no one else, but here are some little-known facts about the comedian that you may not know.

1. She wasn’t always Lucy. 

Before the world knew her as Lucy Ricardo, a young Lucille Ball started her career as a model, using the name, “Diane Belmont.” She reportedly thought the name sounded more glamorous than her birth name and is said to have gotten the idea after driving by the Belmont Race Track in New York. We have to admit, it does have a ring to it. 

 2. Her pregnancy on the show was very real. 

It came as a surprise when Lucy was said to be “expecting” on the show … after all, she and Ricky had separate beds. The p-word was never mentioned on the show. Given the times, show execs were afraid they would offend audiences, as the pregnancy would insinuate the couple did indeed have sex. Lucy was TV’s first pregnant character, though she was just said to be ‘spectin. It so happened that the episode when Lucy gave birth to little Ricky was aired on the same day that Lucille delivered her second child, Desi Jr., in a cesarean birth. 

3. She wasn’t a true redhead. 

 

Although her vivid red hair came to be her trademark, Lucy was actually a natural brunette. She first dyed her hair blonde early in her career when she landed her first roles in Hollywood. In the early 1950s, she was urged to dye her hair red by MGM and she agreed. Her hair color was actually a “golden apricot,” according to her hair stylist, and she used a henna rinse, which they kept under lock and key. 

4. She wasn’t a star student.

 

As a teenager, Lucy enrolled in a New York City drama school to work on her acting but found she was often too nervous to perform in front of her peers. The school sent her mother a letter saying that she was too “shy and reticent” to be a successful student. Boy, were they wrong. 

5. She found love again, after her marriage to Desi Arnaz ended.

Lucy and Ricky may not have gotten their happy ending in real life, but Lucy did remarry after her 20-year marriage to Desi Arnaz ended in divorce. She married comedian Gary Morton in the early ’60s and they stayed married until she died in 1989. 

No doubt about it. We still love Lucy.

The Vanity Accessory You Never Knew You Needed: Byredo’s Brilliant Hand Cream Crank

Photographed by Elizabeth Brockway

The embrace of luxury is never better than when paired with a certain make-your-life-easier ingenuity. So when we spotted this impossibly chic marble and chrome contraption while browsing Byredo’s recently opened Wooster Street boutique in New York City, we simply had to have it. Dear friends, if you have ever ruminated over the nail polish brush that just misses the bottom of the bottle or the last vestiges of a beloved lipstick clinging to its concave bullet, take note: Because you can now sleep better knowing that at least no trace of your favorite face or hand cream need ever go unused again. Designed by founder Ben Gorham exclusively for the SoHo space, the machine allows you to crank an almost-empty tube of product around its metal rod, and, with a twist of the wrist, free the last gasps of salve from its aluminum container without any need for MacGyver-esque techniques (read: splitting the tube open and scraping the final remnants out with the same intensity one might devote to a Death Becomes Her immortality elixir). For the record, we fully intend to put our Marvis toothpaste to a similar off-label test. And defying all odds, it also happens to look great on a well-conceived vanity—making it the perfect marriage of modern opulence and classic practicality.

Priest Recalls First And Only Time He Knew He Was In Love

In his memoir, When Love Calls: A Memoir of Great Devotion, Father Norm Supancheck, 72, shares the story of how he learned to love deeply, fearlessly and wildly. But he and his love, Shayla Strohmeyer, made a heartbreaking decision not to get married. Instead, he followed his spiritual calling, finished seminary school and became a priest. Their lives intersected over the years in uncanny and powerful ways. He officiated at her wedding to another man; he baptized her children and her grandchildren; and when the dark finger of mortality beckoned to them both, their lives merged in one final, poignant and lasting way.

Here, Father Supancheck describes the moment he knew he loved the woman who understood that God was calling him to be the father to many families, not just to one.

It was a hot morning in June 1967, and I was less than a year away from ordination when Shayla asked me to drive her to the airport. School was out for the summer break, and she was heading home to Texas to visit her family for a month. I was working at my dad’s shop for the summer, and he let me have time off to drive Shayla to Los Angeles International Airport.

I picked Shayla up in my old, beat-up Chevy, and she kind of patted the side of the beast’s door as she got in. There was no air-conditioning, and she rolled her window halfway down. My window was down all the way, and as we accelerated onto the freeway, the wind noise became too loud to talk, so I rolled my window up. Shayla kept hers open, and she began talking about her family as we drove down the freeway. She was looking forward to seeing them again.

“Tell me about your mother,” I said. “Funny, but you never talk about her. What’s she like?”

Looking back on it, I can’t believe I asked this question. If I’d been more intuitive, I should have put two and two together by that point in our friendship.

Shayla grew quiet in an instant, and all we heard for several miles was the rush of wind through the Chevy’s window, the hum of the freeway under the tires. I got to thinking that maybe she hadn’t heard me over the noise, so I decided not to press the point and rolled my window down all the way to let the breeze blow freely through. We drove like that, neither of us talking, all the rest of the way to the airport.

When we got to the terminal I broke the silence and offered to go inside with her, but Shayla said no. She insisted I drop her off at the curb. We parked in the congestion of the unloading zone, and I turned off the ignition. I was just about to climb out and get Shayla’s bags when she put her hand on my arm and said, “Wait a minute.”

She was looking straight ahead, and I was worried that a security guard would tell us to move along, but I had the presence of mind to ask, “What’s going on, Shayla?”

She took a long swallow, paused, and said, “I was in seventh grade, Norm. We were coming back from a ball game, and a farmer’s truck pulled out in front of us. Mom was driving. My little brother Keevin was sitting next to her in the front seat. Marge’s sons, Bobby and Greg, were with us.” Shayla stopped. Her voice crackled, her throat went up and down a couple times, and then she continued.

“It all happened so fast. There was no time to stop or swerve. Bobby and Greg were okay. I was shaken up, but physically okay. The gear shift went through Keevin’s chest, so it was pretty serious for him, but he lived.”

I asked my next question slowly. “Your mom?”

Shayla said nothing more. She squeezed her eyes tightly closed. And then she was crying.

I pulled her close and held her that way. Minutes ticked by. My embrace was pure, and all I wanted to do was comfort this girl, this friend who’d come to mean so much to me. I stroked her hair. Shayla cried in my arms. She had opened up worlds of new life for me, and yet she had already experienced so much pain herself.

Shayla’s mom had been killed on impact. I began to see through a small window into Shayla’s respect for big, safe cars. Shortly after the memorial service, Shayla’s dad had sent her, not yet 13, from Texas to Long Beach to live with her older sister, Marge, and Marge’s husband and family. Shayla’s two youngest brothers stayed with their dad, but the father figured that Shayla needed some womanly influence in her upbringing. Her dad never remarried.

In the aftermath of her tears, I started the car and drove around the airport loop, parked the Chevy in the lot, and walked Shayla inside the terminal. I carried her bags and made sure she found the right gate. There were no metal detectors or elaborate security procedures in those days, and Shayla gave me a long hug goodbye. In silence, I walked back to my car. We’d see each other soon. A month wasn’t too long for us to be apart, was it?

Driving home alone, I thought about death, something I hadn’t experienced much personally. I was too young to really understand much about it, although I knew it could really affect the loved ones who were left behind for a long time.

Other than my grandparents’ passing, I had had only one significant brush with death. When I was 16, I knew a kid at school named Michael Gray. He was a grade lower than I was, and we weren’t close, but he was a nice kid and I’d talked to him a few times. His dad had given him a model airplane with a working motor and steel wires to guide its flight. It was really cool. Honestly, I was a bit jealous of that plane.

One day, I walked outside the school and saw Michael flying his plane toward the north end of the campus. He was only about 50 feet away from me and flying his plane near the entrance of the school where some big power lines crossed the property. I started to shout but already I was too late. The plane flew straight into those lines. A bolt of lightning flashed down the controller wires and blasted into his body. I heard a huge kaboom, and the boy caught on fire. I sprinted toward him. All of us did. Underneath Michael’s feet a crater had been formed in the ground, a shallow hole about six inches deep, created by the explosion.

The hospital was directly across the street from the school. Michael lived a few days, and then he died. Seeing that boy go like that made me realize a person’s life could end at any moment. I was rattled by the accident. Shaken. The only time I wanted my life to end was after I’d grown old. I’d be surrounded by family and friends. A life filled with accomplishments. Close to God. I’d go peacefully, maybe in my sleep. I couldn’t imagine those closest to me ever dying. I couldn’t imagine them dying back when I was 16 when Michael had died. I couldn’t imagine them dying even in my mid-20s when Shayla told me about her mother. But it was true. Someday, they’d all be dead. My parents. My brothers and sisters. Shayla.

As I was driving back from dropping Shayla off at the airport, a distinct feeling hit me —and it came with the force of a freight train. I was on Sepulveda Boulevard, heading back to the freeway, and I tried to put words to this intensity, but it was so unlike anything else I’d ever experienced that I couldn’t.

Sure, I was feeling bad about Shayla’s mother dying, and my heart filled with a new understanding of Shayla’s grief and her response to it, but at least I had a category for those feelings, as difficult as it was to hear Shayla tell of it. No, this feeling wasn’t about that. And it wasn’t just feeling blue because I’d be without her for four weeks. It was something completely different. It was so foreign, like no force I’d ever encountered. At first, it felt like an emptiness inside of me; a barren, gaping hole. Yet I didn’t feel cold or scared, and the force didn’t hurt me in any way. This feeling was warm. Happy. Paradoxical. Content, yet daunting.

I pulled my Chevy over and turned off the ignition. Around me were stores and restaurants and people walking up and down the sidewalk. It was just another busy day in Los Angeles. I needed to get back to my dad’s shop, but I needed to concentrate intently on what I was feeling. Work could wait a few moments. I desperately needed to figure out what was going on inside my head.

Out loud, I said, “This is crazy. Norm, you are absolutely crazy. This will never work. Not in a million years.”

And then I named the feeling.

I named it in surprise. But I named it honestly. I named it for myself to know so I could imbed it in the depths of my soul. After I named it, I had no doubts that the name was correct. I’d never felt so empty in all my life. I’d never felt so heavy. I’d never felt like I was missing someone more than I did at that moment. For the first time ever, I realized there was a void in my life. A huge void. And I had no conclusions yet what to do about this. I knew only of its existence. Shayla was gone. Not gone in death, but just gone to visit her family. And I couldn’t handle being away from her. Not in this moment, not ever in my lifetime.

The feeling was this: When it came to Shayla Strohmeyer, I, Norm Supancheck, knew without a doubt that I was in love.

Clueless Director Amy Heckerling Reveals 15 Things You Never Knew About the Film

01-things-you-never-knew-about-clueless

Get out your white collarless shirt from Fred Segal: Next month, Clueless turns twenty years old. Amy Heckerling’s film about a group of precocious teenagers has become a cultural phenomenon since its release—last year, Iggy Azalea turned her song of the summer into a shot-by-shot homage, and now there’s even a Broadway production in the works. But what’s really remarkable about the Clueless success story is not its enduring popularity, it’s that everyone thought it was going to fail. “Everybody passed on it. Everybody said no,” writer and director Amy Heckerling told us by phone.

After being unceremoniously dropped by Fox, the film eventually landed at Paramount—and even the studio didn’t realize what they had on their hands. The sleeper hit would go on to inform the world about totally important designers, “Rollin’ with My Homies,” and launch the careers of several nineties darlings, including Alicia Silverstone, Brittany Murphy, and Paul Rudd. And two decades later, we’re still totally, butt-crazy in love with Clueless. “It’s weird, when it came out, I don’t think I had anybody interested in talking to us,” Heckerling said. “I don’t even know if we had a publicity day for Clueless. Now, without the studio even doing anything, every day someone’s calling about it.” With the valley girl comedy officially entering its twenties, we spoke to Heckerling about the myths and legends surrounding the perma-popular film. Below, fifteen things you never knew about Clueless.

 

Alicia Silverstone didn’t have to audition for the role.

“I loved her from [the Aerosmith videos] and when I met her I had these feelings, like, I just want to watch her. I want to take care of her. I think men and women will like her. She’s so pretty, she’s so sensual, and she’s also somebody that you seem to care for.”








Expand

 

Alicia Silverstone really didn’t know how to pronounce Haitians.

“She had the script and she was doing her lines and as soon as I said ‘cut,’ the script woman and everyone in the crew started to walk up to her to tell her the right pronunciation and I had to run interference and go, ‘Step away from the actress. Stand clear of Alicia Silverstone.’ Because I didn’t want her to know that she had it wrong, I wanted that assurance without her thinking this is funny or a joke—which changes how you say things. There’s something you do when you’re completely confident that just can’t be replicated when you know you’re doing something wrong.”

 

Fox, who originally had the rights to the film, wanted Josh to be Cher’s neighbor.

Heckerling explained that Fox had a very different romantic plan for the pair: “They thought that Josh should be her neighbor, and that his mother liked her father,” Heckerling said. “He was next door and that’s why she never thought about him because he was under her nose.”

 

Fox was also very worried about having a female protagonist.

“Here we go again with the female shit,” Heckerling said. “They wanted me to have it be much more about the boys. And I thought, ‘This is inside a female’s head. How are we going to be in a boy’s room?’”

 

The film eventually ended up with Paramount—but they didn’t even really promote the film.

“At the time, when the studio sent out their DVD set of their movies to consider for the Academy Awards, we weren’t even included. And then it got nominated for a Writers Guild award and then they sent it out.”



Expand

 

On Cher’s report card, her name is listed as “Hamilton,” which was not—as previously thought—a reference to Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

“I never really had anybody in the script say her last name. And then the prop guys must have said, ‘Give us a last name.’”

 

In fact, Mr. Hall ad-libbed Cher’s unofficial surname.

“In one scene, Wallace [Shawn] was taking attendance and he sort of ad-libbed Horowitz. He just ad-libbed a last name. It’s not used anyplace else. In my script, she’s Cher.”

 

Miss Geist (Twink Caplan) served as a producer on Clueless and Heckerling wrote the role with her in mind.

“She’s a buddy of mine and she was working with me and so I wrote the part for her.”

 

Originally, Heckerling wanted Dave Chappelle to play the role of Murray.

“I never read him, but I met with Dave Chappelle because I just loved him in Men in Tights. I was thinking of him for Murray. But once I saw Donald . . . he had such a little kid, puppy-like quality that was so perfect. And Dave is such a strong, manly, edgy person—I’m sure he could act like a puppy kind of guy—but Dave Chappelle wasn’t a little kid.”

The freeway scene was inspired by Heckerling’s own fear of driving.

“Any time I wind up in the lane where you can’t quickly turn off of it and it’s turning into the freeway, I just start screaming until I’m off of it.”

 

Paul Rudd’s haircut almost cost him the role of Josh.

“Josh was the role I was having the most trouble with. Because that’s the one you fall in love with. He was so definitely the leading contender, but I still had more actors to see. Then I ran into him at a coffee shop kind of place and he had cut his hair. And I said, ‘What did you do?’ And he said, ‘Well, I didn’t hear from you.’”

 

Alanna Ubach was a serious contender for the role of Tai.

“I thought she was really good. But once I saw Brittany, I was like, oh my god, I love Brittany.”

The clog that hits Brittany Murphy in the head at the Val party was fake.

“The clog was problematic because we were going to hit Brittany in the head with the shoe, but you couldn’t really do that with one of the real wooden shoes—or even with a rubber bottom. So we made a lightweight foam clog. And it looked fine but it went by too fast—when you throw something at somebody, or kick a shoe off—you know, it happens in so few frames that you can totally not see it. So we slowed its trajectory down and we made it bigger and darker.”

 

Heckerling not only sat in on classes at Beverly Hills High, a teacher from the school makes a cameo in the movie.

“The principal in the movie who comes and introduces Brittany Murphy is the drama teacher and also teaches debate classes at Beverly Hills High. I sat in on his classes, his name is Mr. Hall, I named the character after him and he’s a great guy.”

Costume designer Mona May struggled with choosing Cher’s most iconic outfit.

“She was losing sleep. And then the yellow plaid came to her, and then she was able to sleep.”

What I Wish Every Co-Parent Knew

My job is to work with families, primarily divorced families, and help them overcome conflict. That conflict usually comes from the same place — fear. Every co-parent I’ve worked with, myself included, has felt fear over at least one of these things.

1. Fear of your children loving their other parent more, or worse, wanting to live with the other parent. Let’s be honest here. In the age of custody hearings and long divorce proceedings, we all know that friend of a friend who got sole custody and placement just because their child asked for it. Just hearing these stories creates this sense of fear over what might happen one day if you’re not the “better” parent.

What I wish co-parents knew was that as much as you read about judges giving primary placement to the “better” parent, more and more judges are actually awarding joint custody because they realize that having both parents in children’s lives is what’s best for them. I also wish that co-parents knew that their child will love both parents in different ways, neither one is more than the other. You may provide emotional support whereas your ex provides academic support. Both are needed and both are appreciated, one isn’t better than the other.

2. Fear that your ex will hurt your child physically or emotionally. Many times this fear comes from a lack of control over what’s happening when you’re not with your child. We all have that fear whenever they aren’t with us, right? What if something happens? What if I can’t get there quick enough? What if I can’t prevent it? Now combine that natural parenting fear with the bitterness and resentment that many high-conflict divorced couples feel and suddenly everything your ex is doing is painful to your child. What’s worse, there’s not much you can do about it because, unless you can prove that it’s creating real, lasting pain in your child, judges won’t do anything.

Many divorced parents tell me that their ex is hurting their child. One parent tells me that their ex isn’t there for their child. The other parent tells me that their ex is too controlling. What I wish co-parents knew is that you may have different styles, but that it’s good for children to see a balance between them. Think of everything you learned as a child. You learned some from your Mom and some from your Dad and some from everyone else that was part of raising you. Your children are learning the same.

3. Fear that they’re missing out on their child’s life. This is the big one, isn’t it? You went from seeing your children everyday to seeing them half of the time, maybe less. You talk to your children, but that’s not the same as seeing them everyday. It’s not the same as dinnertime conversation, movie nights, or midnight snacktime catching up. You can’t get that time back, either.

What I wish co-parents knew is that being divorced allows your children the opportunity to build this time with both of their parents. I am not trying to romanticize co-parenting in saying that. I’m a co-parent, too, and hate every second away from my children, but I wish co-parents knew that, yes, you aren’t there for every dinnertime, movie night, or midnight snack, but that you are there for them and your child appreciates that. Just making sure they know that you’re there for them goes a long way.

Co-parenting is the number one way to ensure your children thrive through divorce. I wish co-parents knew that if they’re able to manage their fears and work through them, if they’re able to put those fears aside in order to work with their co-parent, that they’re on the way to giving their children everything they need to prosper after their parents divorce.

Comment below and tell me which of these ring true for you, or tell me what I’ve missed.

Joe Manganiello: Sofia & I Quickly Knew We Were Right For Each Other

While promoting ‘Magic Mike XXL,’ Joe Manganiello tells Access why he and his fiancée Sofia Vergara quickly knew they were right for each other.

Our Rescue Dog Was the Addition to My Family I Never Knew We Needed

It wasn’t love at first sight. She shook in her outdoor kennel, next to that dog who wouldn’t stop barking. Next to the pacing Airedale with long, matted hair. No, this little red dog looked like any dog, except her whole back end quivered when she sat, but her eyes stayed on you.

Say you had kids with you. Say you had two. One holding your hand and one strapped to your chest. The older one just wanted to go pet cats, just wanted to look through the dogs, just to see. Then you saw this little, trembling dog.

2015-06-16-1434480499-4768700-bodhi2.jpg

Once you put a leash on her and walked 10 feet away from the front door, she did that thing where they sniff the air, snort at a dandelion, and pee. She ate grass. It looked like she’d had puppies recently. Her ribs showed too much. She walked a little ahead but kept her ears pointed at you. She never pulled; she was just on a walk. Same as it ever was.

Then you and the kids sat in the grass. This dog that’d been shaking from fear rolled on her back, right in between you three, and let out a huge sigh. She went from uncontrollable fear to pure relaxation in minutes. She looked up, ever so lovingly, at your older daughter, and you saw they matched. Maybe they saw the loneliness in each other.

Maybe this dog knew. Maybe all those times you told yourself that the right dog would come someday when you weren’t looking, like single ladies in their late 30s say about Mr. Right, had truth to it. Maybe it wasn’t just a lie you told yourself when you saw other people cuddling with their fantastic dogs.

2015-06-15-1434411882-5325992-0511151640.JPG

I’d always told myself I didn’t have time for a dog. Told myself I didn’t have patience, or energy, or the proper space.

But I asked how to apply to adopt. I filled out the paperwork on a hunch while my daughter fed her treats in the lobby. The dog’s fear and anxiety could prompt scary situations, especially with the baby who didn’t know any better and the eight-year-old who did but respected no boundary. Bringing a scared, 50-pound dog into our little apartment could be a terrible decision. But I handed over the clipboard with my signature.

They agreed to hold her for 24 hours, and we had to return her to her cage. My oldest said, “Boy Mom, that little dog is going to make a family really happy. I hope she finds them soon.”

Our lease required a doctor’s note in order to get an animal. The property manager emailed me the paperwork the next morning. I called my daughter’s therapist, whose office was a block from our house, and asked if she’d fill it out. We’d talked about it already.

Mia needed a dog. She had attachment and trust issues. I always did my best to be the dependable one. I didn’t promise things I couldn’t keep. And I’d promised her we’d get a dog someday, something she reminded me of daily.

By one o’clock in the afternoon, I’d handed in the note from the therapist that said my daughter needed a companion animal with heartbreaking honesty. The pound called and said we were approved. I drove to a box store and picked up dishes, a collar, a leash, and food. I drove to pick Mia up from school. She was expecting her big sister to pick her up for their weekly outing, but I stood there with a bright purple leash in my hand.

Mia saw it and knew what it meant.

“Are we getting the dog?!” she said. I nodded. “Oh, Mom. Thank you! Thank you!”

I’d tried to talk myself out of this many times. I’d even sent texts to friends who’d also try to talk me out of it, asking their opinion. They repeated everything I’d told myself. This could go very, very badly in quite a number of ways. She was a scared, homeless mother who’d been abused. I saw too much of myself in this dog. I knew what she needed. We had that understanding already.

2015-06-16-1434480299-4033133-bodhi.jpg

I changed her name from Yogi to Bodhi, the Buddhist term for enlightenment, the true form, and freedom from hatred. It only took her a few days to learn it was hers. She took to us completely, and trotted after Mia from the living room, the bedroom, and back. Bodhi’s curled up body became a fixture wherever Mia settled during the day or at night. After a while, Bodhi even started to appreciate the baby for her baby ways. Coraline likes to crawl over the dog’s middle when she’s stretched out on the floor, pausing to teeter on her belly and laughing.

One night, Bodhi wanted to sleep under Mia’s bed instead of with her, which caused Mia to pout and curl up in a tight ball way up on the top bunk. We’d only had Bodhi for a few days, and I woke up just after midnight to the sound of the dog pacing the hallway, whining. I thought for sure she had to poop and started to worry over how I’d get up and do that without waking the baby.

“Bodhi,” I whispered.

Her head appeared immediately in the light of the hallway from my slightly opened door. I patted my bed. She leaped up, turned around a few times, and let out that huge sigh again, resting her head on my legs. My sweet dog. No doubt.

I look over at Mia and Bodhi lying on the couch together, watching TV on a lazy Sunday morning. Bodhi has her head and front leg draped over Mia’s belly. We’ll take her for a walk later, maybe to that special spot by the creek. Mia complained about having to walk the dog last weekend, but after we were out for a bit she said, “I feel happier for some reason.”

I’ve had the same reaction. I vacuum more. I find myself outside gazing up at the pre-dawn sky every morning before any coffee is made. I walk a mile a day or more. I do laundry more often. I wipe up more drips of drool off the floor. And I feel happier for some reason. A reason that comically snores. A reason that knows when I need to feel her warm, heavy head in my lap. A reason that is currently lying across my feet under the desk.

Magnetic Makeup Brushes Are The Beauty Product You Never Knew You Needed

Waiting for freshly-cleaned makeup brushes to dry completely can be an overnight process. With no time to waste, we’ve tried everything from laying our beauty tools in front of a fan to blasting them with a hair dryer on low heat.

This was a problem that Australian makeup artist Rae Morris knew all too well. So she designed a set of magnetic makeup brushes that not only help people keep their vanities extremely organized, but speed up the drying process while cleaning.

rae morris magnetic brushes

Each makeup brush is made with cruelty-free hair that dries faster than synthetic substitutes, and the barrel contains a magnet that allows it to stand atop Morris’ signature steel base plate. The magnets also make it super easy to hang dry the brushes upside down — a fast-dry technique preferred by professionals because it keeps water or other liquids from seeping into the handle and helps to preserve the natural shape of the bristles.

Morris’ pro secret: After cleaning your magnetic makeup brushes, attach them to a magnetic field, such as an exhaust hood (just make sure the range is turned off). Or you can get really creative by affixing to a dish or towel rack or flexible floor lamp neck, as pictured below.

magnetic makeup brushes

magnetic makeup brushes

Morris recently expanded her magnetic range to launch the Iconic Collection, which includes her nine “can’t live without” brushes and a travel case that conveniently allows brushes to be dried upside down when you’re on the go.

While these genius tools come with a hefty price tag — the starter kit will set you back approximately $ 270 — you can save money by purchasing just a few individual brushes and the magnetic plate separately.

After considering how much we typically spend on new makeup brushes and cleaners, we’d say these are definitely worth the investment.

Watch the video below for a demonstration from Rae Morris herself on how to clean your makeup brushes:

Rae Morris provided complimentary magnetic brushes for review purposes.

Julianne Hough Was An Extra In ‘Harry Potter,’ But We Actually Already Knew That

Julianne Hough took part in Us Weekly’s “25 Things You Don’t Know About Me” feature, in which the magazine asks celebrities to list 25 interesting or random facts about themselves that the public probably doesn’t know about them. But Hough’s list comes up short, because there’s at least one fact we definitely already knew:

11. I was a Gryffindor in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” but don’t blink or you’ll miss me!

While this isn’t news to us, maybe it’s news to you. And there really isn’t a bad time to revisit a moment in Harry Potter history. Hough’s role as a Hogwarts student was blink and you’ll miss it, indeed. She can be seen sitting near Hermoine (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint) while they cheer on Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) at a Quidditch match.

juliannehoughharrypotter

Hough has actually spoken about her appearance in the beloved 2001 children’s movie on more than one occasion.

“Oh, yes. I remember it like it was yesterday. I’m still such a big fan. I always go and watch the midnight showing, so I’m excited to see it,” she told Parade magazine in 2011 when asked if the ending of the film series felt bittersweet.

She added, “I might get in trouble for this, but I actually stole the Gryffindor scarf that I had as a memento. I was like, ‘I have to keep this scarf!’”

Then in 2012, during an appearance on “Live With Kelly,” Hough brought up the scarf story again and admitted that while filming the movie as an 11-year-old she fell hard for Harry Potter himself.

“I was kind of in love, especially with Daniel Radcliffe. I wrote him a love note. It was Valentine’s Day and I got him the Valentino Beanie Baby. I never heard back,” she said.

If people weren’t aware she had an uncredited role in the first “Harry Potter” movie, well they are now.

Russell Crowe Knew Tom Cruise Was A ‘Very Cool Guy’ After They Discussed Scientology

After Gawker included him on clarified on Twitter that he is not a member of the controversial religion, and he told “The HuffPost Show” on Friday that he also avoided a Scientology sales pitch from the most famous Scientologist in the world, Tom Cruise.

When Crowe spoke with hosts Roy Sekoff and Marc Lamont Hill about his new film “The Water Diviner,” he recounted the one discussion he had with Cruise about Scientology during his marriage to Crowe’s friend Nicole Kidman. Crowe explained:

As a friend of Nicole Kidman, I got to know Tom Cruise quite well, and I was in the video store, and there was a $ 2.50, on-sale special video on Scientology, so I watched it. It was kind of like out of a friendship thing, really. I brought it up with him and we had a short conversation about it, but it was a moment that I kind of really established in my mind that I thought he was a very cool guy. Because I brought it up with him, I broached the subject, we talked about it for a natural length of conversation, and then his finisher on the conversation was, “If it’s important to you, man, you’ll do something about it.” And we never talked about it again.

Crowe said he hasn’t seen “Going Clear,” the explosive HBO documentary about Scientology, nor has he spoken to Cruise recently.

“I haven’t seen him for quite a while. Once they got divorced, I think I got thrown out with [Nicole],” Crowe said.

How Relationship Experts Knew They Found ‘The One’

“When you know, you know.” That’s the conventional wisdom when it comes to figuring out if the person you’re dating is the person you’ll be with in the long, long term.

But when and how does that seemingly elusive feeling of assurance strike? We recently asked a group of married relationship experts to tell us about the moment they knew they had found The One. Below, authors, professors, therapists and other relationship professionals share their stories.

1. They never ran out of things to say.
“On our third date, we met in the late afternoon for drinks, then we saw a movie, followed by a long, leisurely dinner. Then we decided to walk. All night. First to a cafe in North Beach, then to a jazz bar, and then just up and down the San Francisco hills, until around 6 a.m. when we said goodnight at my front door. Not once did we get bored or run out of things to say. I knew then that 10, 20, 30 years out, we’d still be talking, laughing, keeping life fresh and interesting. And we are.” – Winifred Reilly, licensed marriage and family therapist and relationship blogger

2. What she lacked, he had in spades.
“I knew my husband was The One during our first real date, which was a trip to Miami since we lived in different cities at the time. He navigated us around in a rental car, which was impressive since I have no directional capacity at all. He also was very gentle when rubbing sunscreen on me, which I liked because I thought it meant he was kind and a caretaker. I was right!” – Dr. Samantha Rodman, psychologist and dating coach

3. The relationship felt totally, completely right.
“My wife and I met in high school, we broke up on graduation, but rekindled the relationship in our senior year of college. She had the opportunity to study in Europe, and I spontaneously decided to join her for a year in romantic Heidelberg. On the plane, my exhausted wife-to-be fell into a deep sleep. I looked over at her slumbering form, and I was hit by an overwhelming feeling of rightness -– that for once in my life, I was in the right place, at the right time, with the right person. In Germany, I learned the wonderful word for ‘significant other’ or ‘sweetheart’: Lebensgefährtin. It literally means a ‘fellow-traveler through life.’ And that’s what we’ve been to one another ever since.” – Dr. Karl Pillemer, author of 30 Lessons For Loving and professor of gerontology at Cornell

4. It was love at first sight — no doubt about it.
“I knew my husband was the one at first sight. I know that sounds crazy, but we were set up and had been talking on the phone for nearly a month. Each time we’d connect by telephone, we’d talk for hours. He knew so much about me before we ever met face-to-face, and before we left dinner that night, we both knew we’d never be with another person again.” – Fawn Weaver, author and founder of Happy Wives Club

5. He was a true gentleman.
“It was a cold night in November 1985 and we were double-dating at a Lebanese restaurant in Washington, D.C. He was NOT my date! I was wearing short sleeves and I must have been shivering because Chuck took off his sweater, a red and green chevron-patterned number, and gave it to me. I slipped it on and it was so soft and smelled so good, musky and manly. We looked at each other, he’s got these see-through blue eyes, and I thought, ‘Hmmm, this could be interesting…’ And it’s been interesting for 27 years.” – Iris Krasnow, author of The Secret Lives of Wives

6. She broke all the dating “rules” for him.
“Lou was bartending over the summer after my freshman year of college and his best friend, who I had dated, was the bouncer. Lou was different from any man I had dated. I can’t really explain what it was, but he complemented me in ways I hadn’t ever considered before. I knew it from the start. And because he wasn’t going to call me (bro code), I looked through the phone book and called everyone with his name until I found him. I don’t believe in rules when it comes to love, but if I did, I was sure willing to break any and all of them.” – Dr. Logan Levkoff, sexologist and author

7. Their chemistry was off the charts.
“I knew my husband was The One on date number four. The electricity wouldn’t stop. I swear, I got electric butterflies every time I would think of him. The PDA was getting a little ridiculous that night and I told him, ‘You’re the man of my dreams.’ He said, ‘Wow, that’s a lot to live up to.’ I was actually trying to NOT be in a relationship for a long time, but there was no denying this intense chemistry.” – Marina Sbrochi, author of Stop Looking for a Husband: Find the Love of Your Life

8. His success was hers too.
“When I whispered to her, ‘They let me in [to a psychotherapy graduate program]’ her face radiated joy. More than I did at the time, she understood what this could mean to me and to us. Up until that moment, the future of my career was vague. She knew that this possibility of me becoming a psychotherapist had my name written all over it. Her assurance made her the one for me.” – Dr. Jim Walkup, licensed marriage and family therapist

7 Secrets Your Stepkids Wish You Knew

As a school counselor, kids tell me things. Here are seven things most kids wish they could tell their new stepparent:

  1. I want my parents to get back together. Maybe that’s not really a secret; you probably already know this. The secret part is that it’s NOT because I don’t like you. It sounds weird, but it has nothing to do with you. I just want the two people I love most in this world to live in the same house so I don’t have to go back and forth or worry about either one.
  2. I want my parent to myself. I really, really still want and need one-on-one time with my parent. I know you love my dad/mom. I get that you are married and want to spend time together and that your marriage has to stay strong. BUT I really need time with my parent. Just us. Again, it’s not because I don’t like you. But they are different with me alone and I really need to see that is still there so that I can feel secure. When my family-as-I-knew it split up, it was a huge loss for me. And even though my parent is happy now with you, I’m still grieving and trying to adjust. Please understand I’m not trying to push you out. I just need to keep the connection strong.
  3. It hurts when you make me choose sides. I know that there is a good chance you do not like or respect my other parent. I know you probably have seen and heard a lot more than I have so maybe you are even justified in your opinions. But regardless, please don’t drag me into it. I need to stay neutral because I love them both. I know it might be hard, but if you are able to do this, it will help me trust you and look up to you as a great role model.
  4. I know that you love your biological kids more than you love me. I get that. But my little brother/sister doesn’t understand why you treat them differently than your “real” kids. We didn’t pick this situation. You guys made the decision to blend our two families. It’s going to take time for us to know each other, trust each other and love each other. In the meantime, please try to be fair and consistent.
  5. Your kids and I need time to “blend.” Your kids are pretty much strangers to me. It’s going to take a long time to feel like a family. You can’t put strangers in the same house (let alone in bunk beds in the same bedroom) and expect everything to be great just because you and my parent love each other so much. Please give us time and allow us our own space, privacy and belongings. This isn’t easy for any of us.
  6. How I act is not all about you. Regardless of what has happened with you adults, I am still a kid, which means that I will sometimes be moody, withdrawn, mouthy and rambunctious. Please don’t take it personally. Not everything I do is because of “the divorce” or because I don’t like you. Please try to remember what you felt like when you were my age. No matter how good a parent you are, I’m probably going to try to pull away or even rebel in small or big ways. I need fair and consistent limits and rules and patience and love from you guys.
  7. I don’t need or want a “new” mom or dad. What I really need more than another parent is a strong, consistent role model I can look up to and learn from. If you just take the time to get to know me, and let me take the time to get to know you, we have a good chance of building a strong relationship. (But remember, as I said earlier, I’m still a kid and kids don’t always want to bond with adults, not even their biological ones!)

18-Year-Old Who Went On The Run With 13-Year-Old Girlfriend: ‘I Knew We Were Going To Get Caught’ (VIDEO)

Dalton Hayes, 18, and his 13-year-old girlfriend made headlines last month when they allegedly embarked on an interstate crime spree, reportedly leaving a trail of chaos in their wake. When the pair left their small, western Kentucky hometown, Dalton was set to appear in court on prior burglary and theft charges — though he denies that is why they left.

Over the next two weeks, authorities allege the young couple forged checks and stole three vehicles — one reportedly with firearms inside — while evading police across the South. They eventually were apprehended by law enforcement in Panama City Beach, Florida, as they slept inside a pickup truck.

In the video above, Dalton shares what happened when the two were caught, and why he believed the day would eventually come. Tune in to Dr. Phil Wednesday for Dr. Phil’s entire interview with Dalton. Check here to see where you can watch.
