Tough Love from Mom: Video clip from Miss Advised

I visited my family in Michigan and brought along a whole Bravo camera crew. Here’s a video clip of me talking with my mom that they didn’t use in Miss Advised Episode Three: What’s Your Type ? My Mom has always been supportive and was an amazing role model to me in many ways. Especially around cultivating my own independence…

In the first episode of Miss Advised, I have a discussion with my brother Michael about the advice my mom once gave me — “Never rely on a man to take care of you” — and I don’t think it was awful guidance. It shaped who I am today and I’m grateful.

    Emily,

    I am curious as what you would do if you were in a current situation, such as I. Married 10 years (together 11), 3rd marriage and no sex for the past 2 yrs 8 months. Would you leave? What if you felt that you had no where to go because you had NOT taken your mother’s advice? I am unhappy and spend most of my time alone, just me and the dogs. I have not worked since my son passed away almost 8 years ago. I’m not Sleepless in Seattle, I’m Vexed in Virginia. :-)
