After being told to ‘get a life’ and ‘put on some lipstick’, the former journalist wrote back: “omg put on some lipstick? You’ve only moved on if you attract a man … is that it?!?”
“Sorry I define it by writing a children’s book and trying to re-establish a career, moving on and being happy in myself,” she added.
“Silly me should have just put on lipstick. If only is known that’s what society wanted from me just because I got divorced.”
The mother of three also responded to another critic who said that she ‘cannot turn back time’ and should be grateful for her divorce settlement, which included the couple’s plush marital home on the North Shore worth at least $5million.
“I have no desire to turn back time. I have moved on. I believe the issue may be that just because I haven’t jumped into the arms of a man society/click bait media decide that means I haven’t moved on,” Cassandra retaliated.
“With a friend I studied, wrote and self-published a children’s book and I’m working on re-establishing a career path. I believe that’s moving on and I can’t help they don’t choose to write about that. We are all well … and happy. ALL of us!”
