Shoutout to all the authors who humanize the “Other Women”

2023.06.04 02:14 cactuslegs Shoutout to all the authors who humanize the “Other Women”

One of my (and I know many others’) least-favorite tropes is when the Other Woman (and some serious internalized misogyny) appears in the story.
Why? Because the OW is taller, bustier, and has longer, shinier hair. She’s the waitress who calls the MMC “sugar” and touches his shoulder and writes her number on the check. She wears tight dresses/athleisure, she has perfect acrylic nails, and when she laughs, she rests her hand on the MMCs chest. She’s disingenuous and fake and flirty and only the FMC can see that.
I’ve recently been reading one of my favorite CR authors, Rosalind James, and she does such a good job of setting up this trope and then knocking it down. Her FMCs are pretty varied in personality, body type, background, wealth, and race (IIRC, her FMCs so far have been white, Māori, Samoan, mixed Arabic, mixed Indian). So it shouldn’t be such a surprise when I’m reading a scene where the Other Woman appears and my eyes start getting ready to roll, and then it gets inverted.
(To be clear: none of these Rosalind James OW are seriously trying to get with the MMC during the course of the story; they’re just presented as foils to the FMC/used to explore her and his insecurities/advance the relationship. No one cheats or even gets within miles of it.)
As an example: In one book, our FMC is Exhausted Single Mum who notices that the Hot Nurse who runs with Hot Doctor MMC is into him. But then James not also humanizes Hot Nurse OW within the story (and she ends up being the FMC of the next book), but then has a whole (very funny) scene where Hot Doctor MMC gets roasted by not one, but two former flings in the middle of the grocery store. He’s straight up humbled for being a player right there, and the former flings are like “god, I don’t know why I was so torn up about you, I deserve so much better than to be treated that way,” and he reckons with it, and it’s fantastic.
In another book, FMC thinks that Stacked Bleached Blonde Young OW is waaay too comfortable in touching Hot Athlete MMC, and then she is humbled when she gets told they’re cousins. In yet another, Tall Flat Pixie FMC is noticing all the attention paid to Hot Former Model MMC by the Hot Girl OW, and then the OW gently roasts both her teenage self and the MMC about how she used to have posters of him hidden in her desk. In yet another, FMC steps into a maternal role for a young, grieving child of the MMC, and the deceased mum is always held up and remembered as a wonderful mother who loved her baby so very much and who will never be forgotten.
I would love to hear if you have any shoutouts for authors or titles where this happens, because I am so sick of that “evil, scheming, artificial OW” trope.
Titles referenced, in order (all on KU):
{Stone Cold Kiwi by Rosalind James} (single mom/doctor) (she’s getting divorced, but she’s also very wealthy, which is refreshing; CW because she gives birth on page and the MMC is the one helping her (it’s an emergency))
{Kiwi Strong by Rosalind James} (nurse/retired rugby player) (TW: religious trauma. The FMC escaped a Christian fundamentalist cult and is going back to get her of-age sisters; The MMC retired from rugby because he suffered too many concussions and is afraid he has CTE)
{Just Say No by Rosalind James} (artist/rugby player)
{Kiwi Rules by Rosalind James} (food scientist/amputee former male model/soldier) (it’s good, I swear; both are dealing with major insecurities; also, the FMC is named Karen and I love that; CW because the MMC is a veteran of the NZDF in Afghanistan and that plays a significant role in his narrative.)
{Just Come Over by Rosalind James} (florist/rugby coach) (my favorite of them all)

2023.06.02 00:42 Clear-Theory7541 I saw that Elizabeth Holmes began her 11 year federal prison stint yesterday in Texas. Reminded me of the live where Moses & his Queen were eluding he was designing furniture for her but had to sign an NDA as Holmes’ husband is from a multi-billionaire tycoon family. Such an honest humble king.

They must have exquisite taste. They were so fortunate to hire such an exclusive high demand designer like Moses. I hope one of us here can manifest winning the lottery so this brilliant, talented humble designer can make his amazing masterpieces in our living spaces. 🙌🥰
I obviously misheard because Moses would NEVER lie or misspeak. He said the “mystery family” lived in Malibu (where the secret meeting was) but the news said they’ve lived in Houston, Tx for years. The news probably just misspoke I’m sure. I totally like 110% believe Moses and his queen! The live is during that period of time our queen so flawlessly cosplayed Elizabeth Holmes over and over and over and over.

2023.05.31 06:41 avengersecurityalarm Important Guidelines for Home Security Houston No Contract

Only some have the same needs, yet everyone wants to safeguard their property. A security camera system is an excellent way to keep an additional eye on your home at all times. Because the layout of your property, budget, and home security priorities varies from your neighbors, there is no one-size-fits-all guideline for security camera minimums. If you intend to install home security in Houston no contract, there are a few things you should consider before installing CCTV cameras in your workplace or house.

Coverage area

When building the CCTV and security system in Houston, consider which areas are most vulnerable and should be protected. The company from whom you will purchase the CCTV cameras in Tomball will send an analyst to assist you in determining the most practicable position to put the camera and obtain optimal coverage. You can also choose the specific region that the camera should cover.

CCTV camera options

Wireless CCTV cameras in The Woodlands are becoming the most often utilized camera technology. These cameras eliminate the need for cables and are simple to operate. Traditional cameras are stationary and only point in one direction. Dome cameras in corporate buildings and shopping malls give 360-degree coverage surrounding them. As a result, cameras must be chosen based on the quality and coverage required.


The CCTV cameras you choose will also be determined by the region in which they will be installed. The quality of a camera placed outside your house or workplace will not be the same as that of an inside camera.
Today's robbers are skilled at dodging outside cameras, and even total area coverage may be overcome by masked attackers. Installing a low-light dome camera indoors might save you a lot of bother in the long run.


Before installing CCTV in Conroe, you may need formal clearance from the appropriate authorities. If you wish to put CCTV cameras outside your home, they will cover a section of the surrounding region. Most residential conies require you to notify the local government before installing them and be careful to get authorization from the civic authority before installing anything.

Cameras should be strategically placed for optimal observation

As said previously, always position the cameras so that they can see the area you want to survey. Placing them at the corners of your structures, for example, may create spots and limit the views of your cameras.

Consider your lighting

Ascertain that the area to be monitored has constant and adequate illumination for the camera to pick up identifiable characteristics, such as facial features. Consider utilizing a night-vision CCTV camera when there is insufficient lighting.

Seek expert guidance or assistance

You may be able to build a modest system for your house, and it may be enough, but expert installers live and breathe video surveillance. When it comes to establishing a CCTV system for your house in Cypress, but especially for your company, they are specialists and will know things to do and check for that you probably will not. Consider drawing on their knowledge and skills if you need to hire them to do the task. When considering your time and work, hiring a professional surveillance camera installer may save you money.

Use only wired security cameras

Only install a wireless camera system in Humble if you have a considerable budget since a commercial grade of this type may be fairly pricey. Furthermore, the purpose of video monitoring is to boost security. At the same time, wireless technology has improved but is still more "hackable" than a wired camera system.


Considering the following ideas will assist you in installing home security Houston no contract without difficulty. If you've opted to install CCTV cameras, look for modern IP cameras that can quickly connect to a wireless network. However, scaling may be tough if you still have the old CCTV cameras.

How The Flower Cart Became the Go-To Florist in Town
The Flower Cart is more than just a florist - it's a beloved institution in town. But how did this small business grow into the thriving enterprise it is today? Discover the inspiring story behind The Flower Cart, from its humble beginnings to its success as a staple in the community.

The early days of The Flower Cart.

The Flower Cart started as a small, family-owned business in a tiny storefront on Main Street. The owners, a husband and wife team, had a passion for flowers and a desire to share their love of nature with the community. They started small, with just a few arrangements and a handful of loyal customers, but their dedication and hard work paid off. As word of mouth spread, more and more people began to discover the beauty and quality of The Flower Cart arrangements.

Building a loyal customer base through exceptional service.

The Flower Cart's success can be attributed to their commitment to providing exceptional service to their customers. From the moment someone walks through the door, they are greeted with a warm smile and a willingness to help. The staff takes the time to listen to each customer's needs and preferences, and they work tirelessly to create arrangements that exceed expectations. This dedication to customer satisfaction has earned The Flower Cart a loyal following, with many customers returning time and time again for all their floral needs.

Expanding the business and offering unique products.

As The Flower Cart's reputation grew, so did their business. They began to offer unique products such as custom-made gift baskets and arrangements for special events like weddings and corporate functions. They also expanded their delivery service to include neighboring towns, making it easier for customers to access their beautiful arrangements. By constantly innovating and offering new products and services, The Flower Cart has solidified its position as the go-to florist in town.

Community involvement and giving back.

The Flower Cart's success can also be attributed to their strong commitment to community involvement and giving back. They regularly donate arrangements to local charities and fundraisers, and have even started their own program called "Flowers for Friends" where they deliver free arrangements to people in the community who could use a little pick-me-up. This dedication to making a positive impact in their community has not only earned them loyal customers, but also a reputation as a business that truly cares about the people they serve.

The future of The Flower Cart and their continued success.

With their strong foundation in community involvement and dedication to providing exceptional customer service, the future looks bright for The Flower Cart.

2023.05.15 19:10 Jean_dodge67 CNN's promos a one-hour special on Uvalde, to be reported by Shimon Procupecz and aired on Anderson Cooper next Sunday. “Surviving Uvalde: Inside a School Shooting” teases new-to-public 911 recordings, DPS video and possible footage of the breach CNN has held for ~ 9 months.
link to promo video that shows Crimson Elizondo getting on board the "BORTAC Express" school bus in the chaotic medical evacuation of critically wounded children room from room 112. The gist of all this is that since families haven't been shown these public records by authorities, CNN will preview it to them (and us) at the request of parents of survivors and/or deceased and report on thier reactions. Unclear on who all they are speaking with but I see what appears to be a survivor of room 102.
press release for same show:
NEW YORK, NY – (May 15, 2023) The Whole Story with Anderson Cooper, a CNN Original, continues with an unprecedented look inside the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas last May as the fight for answers and accountability endures, with new, exclusive reporting from CNN Senior Crime and Justice Correspondent Shimon Prokupecz. “Surviving Uvalde: Inside a School Shooting” premieres Sunday, May 21 at 8pm ET/PT.
A year after the shooting at Robb Elementary School, just a handful of the hundreds of officers who responded have been held accountable. Families who lost everything still don’t have a full picture of what happened and how it went so wrong. Without answers from officials in Texas, parents of Robb Elementary students who survived 77 minutes trapped with the gunman asked Prokupecz to show them the moments police finally breached the classroom and rescued their children – raw, never-released body cam footage and 911 audio that authorities refused to make public.
“It’s hard to put into words how difficult it has been this past year covering the school shooting in Uvalde,” said Prokupecz. “It is without a doubt one of the toughest stories I’ve reported on in my career, and it’s been a persistent and somber reminder of the devastating impact that gun violence can have on innocent people and communities. I hope our coverage sheds light on the undeniable work that still needs to be done to better protect children—and adults—from mass shootings, and I am humbled and grateful to the victims’ families for allowing us to share their stories.”
In this episode, Prokupecz speaks with parents of victims, students who survived, Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin and Texas State Senator Roland Gutierrez. Prokupecz and his reporting team were recently honored with a Peabody Award and a George Polk Award for their groundbreaking reporting in Uvalde.
The Whole Story with Anderson Cooper will stream live for pay TV subscribers via and CNN OTT and mobile apps under “TV Channels,” or CNNgo where available on Sunday, May 21. “Surviving Uvalde: Inside a School Shooting” will also be available On Demand beginning Monday, May 22 to pay TV subscribers via, CNN apps, and Cable Operator Platforms.
The Whole Story is also available as a CNN Audio showcast. Visit or listen wherever you get your podcasts.
