What do you do when you break up with someone? Maybe you blog it, maybe you drink heavily, maybe you cry yourself to sleep every night. Maybe you do all three things and also a whole bunch of other shit.
But eventually, the inevitable question arises: how much public shaming of your ex are you allowed to do? Under what circumstances do you tell your friends and relatives and, indeed, a world of strangers about what a douchebag/cheater/flaccid/baby he was? More
As much as I detest Camille Grammer on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, hearing the story of how she knew her marriage to husband Kelsey was over really tore at me. Kelsey was based in New York to do La Cage aux Folles on Broadway, while Camille and the kids were back home in Malibu.

Every time someone humiliates themselves on a reality show – or just does something normal without realizing what a horrible human being they are – the invariable next step is to blame the editing and claim that their words/actions were taken out of context.
