Nora Ephron and Huffington Post to Take All the Fun Out of Divorce


Remember when the New York Times introduced their alcohol blog “Proof,” and instead of being awesome stories about getting drunk all the time, it was filled with dreary, joyless cautionary tales? We worry that the same thing will happen with the Huffington Post’s new “Divorce Vertical,” even though it was conceived by Nora Ephron, She Who Makes The Narcissistic Difficulties of Middle-to-Upper Class White People Seem Charming. Instead of, say, delightful tales of brutal marriage breakups, the site will offer “advice to divorcees about dating and raising children.” Because if there’s anything more fun than getting divorced, it’s getting advice from a blog about how to do it.
