MEMOIRS

The Other Woman

Here’s a new book that will soon confront you as you wait in line for your morning frappuccino: Isabel Gillies’ Happens Everyday: An All-Too-True Story, a new memoir that has recently been chosen as Starbucks’ top book. Gillies, the blonde bombshell from Law & Order, once went on two dates with Mick Jagger, but tells the story of settling down. She recounts falling in love with her husband, moving to Ohio so he could teach at Oberlin, and staying at home with the children. Meanwhile, he began cheating on her with a fellow teacher named Sylvia. Writes USA Today: “...Gillies has whipped up a guilty pleasure for readers—and brewed her ex and his new wife, Sylvia, a venti-sized cup of mortification.”
