Wow, from some of these comments, I guess only "good girls and boys"--those who've never gotten drunk, made questionable calls on a hook-up, found themselves in a relationship that ended oddly/badly or ever lived outside of a glass house, listen to the Leonard Lopate Show. Ms. Chupack's journey is her's, and as a writer she can tell anyway she chooses...if you don't like it, don't buy the book or listen to the interview.

come on folks have a sense of humor. yes she reminded me slightly of women I don't like always being around but she's a great story teller, check out her moth story. there's room for everyone's truth without having to be slut shamed etc. it's 2014.

She's the LAST person I'd ask for advice from, be it sex, or really, anything.

From what she's saying, her current husband sounds gay as well.

I have to turn this off.

This is the most annoying person that's been on the show in a LONG time. She's like the queen of the Sex and the City girls who helped overrun NYC with cupcake shops.
