Candace Bushnell Names The Other Woman


I told you yesterday that Candace Bushnell was way too ticked off in her press release announcing her divorce to not have been scorned in some way. Well It turns out her husband was cheating on her and Candace decided to go ahead and out the woman by naming her in the divorce papers. Hello Georgina Pazcoguin and welcome to the tabloids. You may wonder why a ballet dancer who has never been in a tabloid before is suddenly going to be in a lot of them. Well, there is nothing we like more in this world then to see celebrities and their cheating spouses and the people they cheated with. It is what we do. Just because no one really cared about Candace Bushnell or her husband's divorce before now, it has all changed since there is a confirmation of an affair and a name. It makes the most benign divorces so much more fun for us to read and is also another day where I don't have to write about the Kardashians because I found a better train wreck to talk about. It really is a win/win. Oh, except for Georgina and Charles. Probably not fun for them to be called out like this.

woahhh! she's the lookalike of Candace!!!!!(i jokes) in fact i don't care!

figgy said...

I just can't get over being amazed that the other woman is...a woman.

Maybe Candace was a beeyotch? Or maybe not. But "the other woman/person" is not necessarily bad.

Susan said...

Word, figgy.

I can see this being a big deal in NYC high society, but I really don't give an eff.

@Figgy: *spits out coffee*

HAH! That's what I thought, too!

linnea said...

Wow. Well, I am sure she can turn it around if she wants to. After all, Spitzers woman managed to milk a much worse situation

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

@figgy of COURSE she's a beeyotch!

Maja. With a J. said...

Well, if they didn't want to be called out, they shouldn't have cheated in the first place! Close your legs to married men!

msgirl said...

Candace, why are you showing us your dirty laundry and shoving the stench in our face? Not classy. I know you're pissed and hurt but we're really not interested and it makes you look very bad. Like a bitch.

msgirl said...

Just read on Gawker from someone associated with the NYC Ballet that everyone already knew about this, and that they've appeared as a couple all over the place this summer.

Mina said...

Yes, because if the man cheats the woman had to be a bitch.

RenoBlondee said...

I actually don't blame her for outing them. Sorry, I've been cheated on in my former marriage and it fucking kills. They deserve to be outed. Trust me, they'll move on and be juuuuust fine, the poor babies.

msgirl said...

No I'm not saying that if a man cheats it's because the wife is a bitch. I'm saying that she is acting bitchy right now.

Reno - Point noted, thanks for the other perception.

Danielle said...

Sorry but classy or not I would have done the exact same thing. She listed it in her divorce docs and I think it belongs in there! If the other woman is the reason for the divorce then why not state that? It doesn't seem to me like she made a public statement about it. Maybe divorce is public record but that doesn't mean everyone needs to run out and look them up.

kris said...

wow guys...i think your feelings were pretty clear yesterday...I can't believe some of the comments you folks make.

crila16 said...

ewwww...she's extremely unattractive. Yuck.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

@Mina I take your point and wish to clarify.

I've always thought Candy Bushnell was an entitled snobby bitch. My opinion of her is independent of her marriage and subsequent divorce, and in fact, was formed during the early SATC days when she was on the interview circuit. As much as she tried to make Carrie Bradshaw a relatable character to single and/or professional women, I always felt that she held herself high above the audience she was aiming for. Like, "hey, buy my books, but don't think for a second I'd ever be friends with the likes of you."

Henriette said...

It's a woman!

Candace Bushnell always slammed SJP and what she did to "her" character. Bushnell was very bitter that Darren Star (SATC creator)basically bought her out for cheap. She should have sued instead of bitching so much instead of slamming SJP so much. I think she thought SJP was too unattractive to play her alter-ego.

Selock said...

Really, crila16? I think she's beautiful.

weezy said...

@figgy -- I also spat out coffee! The real story here is that there is at least one straight male ballet dancer. Who knew?

When Bushnell sold the SATC property it was an occasional column in the weekly NY Observer, not exactly a NY Times Best Seller. If she didn't like the price, she shouldn't have sold it to Starr and HBO, but waited for a higher bidder. And then listened to the crickets chirping in the marketplace.

anita_mark said...

I just don't understand why people can't keep their dirt private. Yes, what happened to her sucks but does it all have to be out in the open? I'm not taking sides because I really don't care and don't know the whole story (and again, I don't care) but I just don't understand why everything has to be public knowledge.

weezy said...

Bushnell is certainly aware that she's not well-liked and that mean-spirited people are cackling at her misfortune. IMO she wants to make it clear that *he* was responsible for destroying the marriage.

MadLyb said...

If people - especially famous people were able to keep their dirt private, I suppose there wouldn't be gossip sites like this, and I might have have the will to actually do something constructive with my life. The horror!

anita_mark said...

@MadLyb, I agree but usually celebrities who interest us keep their mouths relatively shut and we speculate. This is someone no one really cares about. Most of the articles published today on this site are about no one I care about, Jesse James, NPH's boyfriend, Real Housewives and other reality stars. Because of the constant stories about uninteresting reality stars on this site, whoever is writing as Enty is a woman. I can't see a man caring about these people.

Lelaina Pierce said...

@RenoBlondee - I'm with ya! It has happened to me before too, not in marriage, so not nearly as what you went through, but I understand the pain.

For the reaction to just stay quiet about this and take the high road....? I dunno. I often wondered if any of you saying this had been cheated on.

If ALL she did was release a name? She's hardly scum for doing so, IMO.

angelina said...

It's not like she ran to each street corner, hitting up every block screaming this woman's name...it's in the divorce docs, how can she be blamed for "airing her dirty laundry?" That's the exact place where this trashy girl's name should be

weezy said...

You interfere in someone's marriage, you get what you deserve. Besides, this chick's trouble has only just started. You think Bushnell isn't going to build her into the next book or show? Snort.

Henriette said...

@Weezy
Brushnell sold SATC when it was a book, not just a column. Darren Starr was reading the book.

I agree that Brushnell is going to make this work for her in some way. Either she is going to write a novel OR Carrie and Big break-up. The SATC franchise has gone away from Brushnell's life quite a bit though.
