I’ll keep this brief: the emails exchanged between Melissa and Jason after he dumped her on television have been leaked. You can read them here. Also, the creator of the show totally screwed Jason (or exposed him, depending on how you look at it) and said that he was never contractually obligated to break up with Melissa on the air. So, yeah, he’s a classless pig. Says Reality Steve:
He’s proposed to two different women in a year, and is now working on his 3rd “girlfriend” in that time. I’d say he’s a little fickle.
You know how in history class, we read letters exchanged by historical figures? I remember reading the letters Napoleon wrote Josephine. I wonder if kids 150 years from now will be studying emails like this. That would be hilarious. I sure hope that when you go to heaven (or wherever) you can still spy on the world. I’d get some good laughs out of that.
Napoleon and Josephine had a public divorce – sound familiar? – that everyone and their mom knew about in advance. Hm. And Jason’s not even, like, an emperor or anything. So he really doesn’t have much going for him. At least Napoleon had a political legacy. From PBS:
The divorce ceremony was a grand but solemn social occasion, and each read a statement of devotion to the other.
Far from ever finding cause for complaint, I can to the contrary only congratulate myself on the devotion and tenderness of my beloved wife. She has adorned thirteen years of my life; the memory will always remain engraved on my heart.
With the permission of our august and dear husband, I must declare that, having no hope of bearing children who would fulfill the needs of his policies and the interests of France, I am pleased to offer him the greatest proof of attachment and devotion ever offered on this earth.
Poor Josephine’s forced response reminds me of the email Chris read from Melissa last night. It sucks how the broken women have to put on this brave face and talk about how they know it’s all for the best. Anyway. That’s enough. I lied about being brief. Sorry.
(p.s. I found that image on a blog called My Napoleon Obsession. You must read it! I added it to my blogroll so I can learn new stuff about Napoleon every day. I’ve got a similar obsession with Henry VIII and the Tudors, so it’s right up my alley.)
