I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Divorce Me: Carolyn Hax & Nick Galifianakis

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Washington Post writer Carolyn Hax and acclaimed cartoonist Nick Galifianakis create a weekly syndicated relationship advice column, “Carolyn Hax”, read by millions of readers.

The catch?  A decade ago, they divorced—each other.  Carolyn and Nick open up about what it’s like to work, day in and day out, with one’s ex—parceling out love advice, no less—and why they couldn’t imagine divorcing anybody else.

Nick's response was moving, and I'm glad Faith asked the question...and agree that Mario and Faith reacted perfectly. What a great piece.

Mario and Faith have very good on-air chemistry -- looking forward to the next show!

Oh, I loved this interview. I could *not* believe that Faith asked about the divorce but was blown away by Nick's response. How wonderful that Mario and Faith just let it sit there for a bit. "Remember me...Remember me..." Great segment.

Mario and Faith have a nice vibe.
