Jo Piazza's No-Fail Breakup Bootcamp Rules

The end of the year is often a time for reflection and change. If you're trying to get over a past relationship, or several past relationships, you can find yourself stuck over one detail or another. Try Jo Piazza's Love Rehab tips to get over and start the new year with a clean slate.

  1. Admit you are powerless and your life is unmanageable
  2. Find something greater than yourself to make you sane again
  3. Make a decision to turn your life over to a higher power
  4. Take a moral inventory of yourself (aka figure out what's wrong with you), and keep the hell away from Facebook
  5. Admit to yourself and someone else all the crazy shit you have done
  6. Become entirely ready to have a higher power remove all these defects of character
  7. Humbly ask our higher power to remove our shortcomings
  8. Make a list of all the persons (exes) we have harmed, and become willing to make amends
  9. Make amends whenever possible, except when doing so might cause someone harm
  10. When we are wrong, promptly admit it
  11. Listen to that higher power (whoever she may be)
  12. Having had a spiritual awakening, carry our message to others

Hi Bethenny .Its time to speak on Ladies on The Side
-------------------------------------------------------
This is a poem dedicated to NBA sensation D wade's baby momma..hit me up lets start a discssion on your set

Ladies on the side
-----------------------------

L.O.T.S. (L.ady O.n T.he S.ide)

Love is the necessity in each beat of your heart
More than a band aid, the strongest thread when it is torn apart
After minutes hours days months even years from the very start
The origin., a positive poison saturating the tip of cupids dart

yet the strongest of loves I bet the majority has an antidote
one comes to mind under a desk one did find a stain on a blue dress or coat
Another antidote caused a wife to be killed by her husband out at sea on his boat
most are not so gross intimately creating time for a champagne toast an invitation via a secret note

Let's just say Society frowns on the engaged/married people sneaking around
Always asking why couldn't they give it another try before laying outside down
Never offering a therapeutic reason for smiles flipped into a frown
Overlooking not really hooking she is a beauty living in his condo downtown

Hidden dreams so she seems to the significant other a wynch with her thighs open wide
A home breaker loose booty shaker a wanna be bride sacrificing her body and pride
He sometimes see's her naked wearing a fur the right girl for drinks simple fun in whom he confides
Her time infinity a priceless amenity a situation mean to be is his

Lady on the side

L.O.T.S.

I started watching Bethenny when her show started. It was a pretty good show at first. But now I have watched enough. It has started being silly and not interesting any more. I am going to stop watching because its just not anything I want to see anymore. Sorry that I have decided to do so I just hope no one else feels the way I do. Thank you for reading. Good luck to you.

This episode was so incredibly inappropriate, offensive, off-color and dangerous to those persons suffering from life threatening addictions and who depend upon 12 step recovery. To mock the 12 steps of recovery with some idiotic joke about how to "get over an ex" is irresponsible and not only Bethany, but her producers should all engage in formal apology and issue a statement that they do not speak for or represent any 12 step recovery program and that the episode was in poor taste, founded in ignorance. Perhaps, those seeking help for real addictions won't be discouraged by the idiotic mockery that this episode displayed. Addiction and recovery therefrom are no laughing matters and there is a fundamental reason why real 12 step programs require that celebrities remain annonymous about being recovering members of 12 step programs..if, as public figures they relapse or say something inappropriate, a suffering alcoholic may base his/her hopes of freeing themselves from addiction upon membership in a 12 steo program, and then see this program mocked by bethany and her guests, this vulnerable and ill person may easily lose hope that there is a serious solution and continue down the addiction spiral. In real recovery Step One is the ecompasses feelings of intense pain, hopelessness, hope, helplessness, shame, fear, guilt, more hope, trust, love, anger and fear all at the same time. To use this Step in a moronic joke in "the twleve steps to get over an ex" by calling Step One "Digital detox" or no texting is an abomination and beyond rephrensible. This Step takes more courage from very vulnerable people than Bethany and her crew could ever fathom having to muster and the "digital detox" "joke" is not "laughable" It is deplorable. This episode was not only based in ignorance, but also very dangerous and irreponsible. Recovery is real, sacred, and if Bethany can contact a 12 Step point person, they should be able to direct her how to properly handle this dangerous issue and retract any idiotic perceptions of recovery in hopes that no one was deterred from seeking real recovery and that no recovery alcholic or addict is so offended by this episode that he or she just gives up on recovery. That may sound extreme, but when you make jokes of life saving treatments, you need to undertand what potential for devasation and death exists in insulting a sick and vulneable person's only lifeline.

Addicitoin and recovery therefrom are no laughing matters and there is a fundamental reason with real 12 step programs why celebrities should remain annonymous about being recovering members of 12 step programs...because if they mess up, the persons truly in need of help do not identifyy 12 step programs with celebrities or popular figures. Or in this case, morons trying to get laugh with Step One being about "digital detox". Step One is real recovery is so far beyond what Bethany, her producers, and guests could ever comnprehend and please pray that no person in need of recovery saw this joke of an episode. Recovery is real, sacred, and if Bethany can contact a 12 Step point person, they should be able to direct her how to properly handle this dangerous issue and retract any idiotic perceptions of recovery in hopes that no one in need was deterred from seeking real help.
