7. Dean McDermott’s Ex, Mary Jo Eustace

Mary Jo Eustace wrote about the break-up of her marriage to Dean McDermott in “Divorce Sucks: What to do when irreconcilable differences, lawyer fees, and your ex’s Hollywood wife make you miserable.” She also wrote a short story about the moment when McDermott told her he was leaving her for the heiress/reality star in “The Other Woman,” an anthology that featured stories from 21 women on love and betrayal.

4. Bradley Cooper’s Ex, Jennifer Esposito

Jennifer Esposito may have been trying to educate people on celiac disease with her book “Jennifer’s Way: My Journey with Celiac Disease – What Doctors Don’t Tell You and How You Can Learn to Live Again;” however, people were more interested in what she was saying about her ex husband, Bradley Cooper. “He was funny, smart, cocky, arrogant, and a master manipulator. I didn’t necessarily find him that attractive, but I figured that I could enjoy his sense of humor and nonsense for a while,” Esposito wrote. “We had fun, but he also had a mean, cold side. His personality could flip on a dime.”

2. Colin Farrell’s Ex, Emma Forrest

Emma Forrest’s memoir “Your Voice in My Head,” centers around her failed love affair with notorious bad boy Collin Farrell. Even though everyone knows that she is referring to him, she never calls him by name. Instead she refers to him as “GH” for “Gypsy Husband.” The book details their relationship, including how they met, how it developed and how they were planning on starting a family when Farrell suddenly and inexplicably ended the relationship.

In the book, Frost discussed her struggle with postpartum depression, her self-harming behavior, the break-up of her first marriage to Gary Kemp and her tumultuous second marriage to Jude Law. Her Oscar-nominated ex wasn’t happy about the book. He slapped her with a lawsuit demanding that she take out pictures of their children, as well as some passages that related to their marriage.
