Apparently that’s what Terry McMillan has been doing Ã¢â‚¬” from the time she found out that her (now ex-)husband is gay, until this month, as her essay “100 Questions I Meant to Ask Him” is published in the book The Honeymoon’s Over: True Stories of Love, Marriage, and Divorce. (I love that the cover features a piece of burnt toast!)
The Publisher’s Weekly review reads, “Another low is Terry McMillan’s vulgar rant about an ex-husband, who admitted to homosexual exploits on national television.”
Were the exploits nationally televised or just his admission? Anyway, when McMillan first found out, she reportedly told her ex “you’re going to make a great fag” because “most of you guys are just like dogs anyway,” and now she’s written this essay to clarify that she’s a woman wronged, not a homophobe.
Galleycat has read the essay and presents …
More evidence of McMillan’s enlightened, non-homophobic attitudes:
Doesn’t this best-selling author have a publicist or someone with the sense to tell her this was all a very, very bad idea?
Still, I think they should make a film adaptation of the essay, starring Angela Bassett, of course.
She can do scorned.
She can do bitter.
And she can also do better. She knows when to bite her tongue, Terry.
