All of the “other women” in The Mistress have been looking to Sarah for ways out of their toxic relationships, but not Michelle. Michelle believes that her relationship is “different” - she’s not in distress and she’s confident that she can prove Sarah wrong.
I couldn’t believe the words coming out of Michelle’s mouth! In regards to her MM’s wife, she said, “I’ve been overly respectful of her space and her family.” How is sleeping with this woman’s husband showing her respect?! As a victim of infidelity — yes, Michelle’s ex-husband had an affair — Michelle should know better, but instead, she’s putting another family through the same grief her family went through.
So, did she prove Sarah wrong? You’ll have to watch her episode to find out.
Not surprisingly, we haven’t heard back from Michelle on her life after The Mistress. We can only hope that she eventually takes matters into her own hands and sees this relationship for what it is.
Talk about being strung out on a guy! In last night’s second episode, Jenn sacrifices her job, her kids, her house and her sobriety all for a guy who takes her to cheap motels.
Looking at the motel, it really was sad to see what kind of place this MM thought was suitable for their romantic rendezvous. A big bed, covered with sketchy sheets and not much else. Even more upsetting was hearing Jenn talk about the times she spent alone in that room drinking.
Textbook mistress, Jenn admits that she is insecure and is simply grateful for the male attention. It seems like she needs to get her priorities straight. Thankfully, as part of Sarah’s journey, Jenn literally smashes her past and gives her MM (married man) a stern warning, “I’ll call the police if you come by my home.”
We followed up with Jenn to see if she was able to get her life back in order after the episode wrapped.
Slice: What is your current relationship status?
Jenn: I am currently single and absolutely loving my new life. I have regained custody of my eldest son and we are happier than ever.
S: Since the show, have you been in contact with your MM?
J: Hell no.
S: Are you weary of starting new relationships out of fear that you will end up a mistress again?
J: I have more confidence today than I’ve ever had. I will never again be second to any kind of relationship. I am taking this time to help my boys and I become a family again.
S: Do you regret your past affairs?
J: No I don’t. My past relationship taught me a lot, so in turn, my mistake became a valuable lesson. Without that experience I would not have become the strong, confident woman I am today.
S: If you could say anything to your MM’s wife, what would you say?
J: I would tell her that she is worth more than what she has settled for. Who knows? She and I could have probably become great friends…after all we did have a lot in common.
S: How would you describe your experience with Sarah?
J: My experience with Sarah was a life-changing one. She is an amazingly smart, strong and independent woman that I will always look up to. I appreciate her wisdom and the courage it took to tell her story in order to help others just like her. I will take this experience with me every day for the rest of my life. Thank you Sarah. xo
