    Classy and Humorous

    I have to be honest. I selected this book thinking that it was going to be Mary Jo Eustace's version of what happened during her infamous split from Dean McDermott, when he left her for Tori Spelling. Trashy, I know. But I thought maybe a light, gossipy book would be a nice change.

    Divorce Sucks, despite it's somewhat lighthearted, joking (and yet all too true) title, is a tell-all but not of the gossipy variety. Instead, Ms. Eustace shares what it's like to be over 40 and facing an unexpected and sudden divorce. Add to that the celebrity factor (Ms. Eustace was somewhat of a local celebrity in her native Canada, along with ex-husband McDermott, with Tori Spelling bringing the tabloids and entertainment news into what should have been a very personal family matter), two children (one of whom was an infant that had been adopted a mere three weeks before McDermott left) and a very recent relocation to Los Angeles, where Ms. Eustace had no ties, no employment and no roots. Hmm, yes, I think the title might be fairly accurate.

    I'll get this out of the way right now. I have watched Spelling and McDermott's reality television show. While I didn't and don't like how their relationship came about, I must admit that their program has been entertaining. Mary Jo Eustace, however, was somewhat of a mystery - - the "first wife", rarely mentioned in the media during the highly publicized split, other than in brief passing or reported as being McDermott's "older" former wife (a fact that Ms. Eustace jokes about during the course of her book). Divorce Sucks proved to me that Mary Jo Eustace has a wonderful personality and pokes fun at herself in order to provide somewhat of a "how to" survive divorce and come through it with your emotional and mental health intact.

    Despite the book not being the gossipy froth I had originally thought, and not going through a divorce myself, I enjoyed the book. I found Mary Jo Eustace to be down to earth and relatable. She sells the book, thanks to her witty writing and ability to be humble. She admits to feeling sorry for herself and says "hey, it's okay". She admits to wearing the same shirt for months on end during her woe-is-me period. She admits to feeling uncomfortable and out of sorts at being the only single gal at get-togethers with couples and wonders who exactly gets custody of the joint friends when you and your husband split up. She talks about navigating the unknown waters of the dating pool as a single mother as well as going back to work to support herself and her children. While McDermott and Spelling are mentioned, Ms. Eustace stays away from the low-blows and name-calling and focuses instead on how to get over and get beyond.

    Bottom line, even though I don't need the divorce advice for myself, I would enjoy sitting down over a glass of wine or a manicure to chat with Mary Jo Eustace. Any reader looking for advice on how to deal emotionally with a divorce will benefit from her book, just as any reader looking for a book written in a chatty, comfy BFF style will enjoy picking this one up.

    Good book

    I never liked Tori Spelling anyway. She represents the adult version of a spoiled brat. Sorry she stole your husband.
