This Twitter Thread Starring Two Scorned Wives In An Airport Is Amazing
These women plotting to catch their cheating husbands are modern heroines
First things first: there is nothing redeeming about reveling in the emotional pain of strangers. But it must be said that the following twitter thread, starring two scorned wives who teamed up to share their mutual heartbreak, is hands-down one of the most entertaining things you’ll read today.
It’s got all the makings of a Nancy Meyers screenplay: it’s funny, sad, it involves booze, two women of a certain age, and it’s inspiring as hell.
It’s also kind of like the plot of Netflix’s Grace & Frankie —starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as two similarly scorned wives — come to life. In a series of live tweets by filmmaker BJ Colangelo, the thread stars two women who meet up to fly cross-country to catch their cheating husbands. Who are apparently sleeping with each other.
Get your popcorn (and tissues) ready before you dive in.
BRB, gotta go sob.
Oh, my heart. These women deserve the world, truly.
It’s official: I’d like to audition for the role of Shot Lady, please.
There is truly no obstacle on earth that cute baby animal videos cannot solve.
Shot Lady proves not all heroes wear capes.
Don’t you just wanna wrap Gum Lady up in the tightest hug ever?
Hoo boy! Godspeed, Jeffrey and Richard, amiright?
Probably the most earnest portion of this amazing yet totally heartbreaking scenario is the “I don’t care if they’re gay, I care they lie” part. These aren’t just your “typical” scorned women; they’re wives who love their husbands and are realizing their respective years marriage are based on lies — about who their husbands really are, how they feel, and what they’re really up to when they say they’re going on a “business trip.” That’s some serious shit, folks.
Thank goodness they’ve got each other, huh? It’s like the 2017 version of the First Wive’s Club we didn’t know we needed. I don’t know about you, but I’m imagining Shot Lady and Gum Lady locking arms through the terminal as Annie Lennox belts out “Sisters Are Doin’ It For Themselves.”
