Bradley Cooper’s Ex Got Enough Publicity From Writing About Him, So Now She’s Scolding Us For Talking About It

Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Esposito attending Babel premiere November 2006

Bradley Cooper’s ex-wife, actress Jennifer Esposito, wrote negatively about a certain relationship in her new book Jennifer’s Way, saying the guy was a “master manipulator” and had a “mean, cold side.” She never mentions Bradley by name, but there are hints in terms of time frame that suggest that’s exactly who she’s referring to. Obviously it got her a lot of attention, since Bradley Cooper is now a huge star and Jennifer Esposito… not so much. But now that we’ve all been reminded that she exists and that she has a book she wants us to buy, she’s really mad that we’re making this all about Bradley.

Jennifer released a statement basically scolding the general public for talking about this particular relationship-related passage instead of what her book is supposed to be about on the whole — her experience with celiac disease.

“This book is about my journey with celiac disease and only that,” Esposito says in a statement. “To refer to anything other than the subject at hand or to make this book about anything else is an insult to me and this disease that plagues so many.”

By that logic, shouldn’t Jennifer be mad at herself for writing about the relationship in the first place? But of course she wouldn’t be mad at herself for making that decision, because look at all the publicity it’s getting her. By acting offended after the fact, it’s just making it look more and more like she purposely inserted the relationship passage to get people to pay attention to her, so she could then turn around and go, “By the way, you should read the rest of my book too!”

Whether Jennifer was writing about Bradley here or not, if she put it in her book, it’s fair game for the public to talk about, and if it’s not relevant to the book’s larger subject matter, why is it there in the first place? I see you, Jennifer. Don’t even try.

      Not gonna lie. I had no idea her book was about Celiac. Nothing I’ve read about it has even mentioned it. So if that’s what it’s about I think she wrote it wrong. Or confused Celiac with “bad relationship”.

        Exactly. If she herself says it’s not relevant then why is it in there?

        I thought her book was about her relationships and what not and she was capitalizing on her 5 minute marriage. Which I had come to expect. I could maybe even see her discussing it if she discussed how dealing with the symptoms impacted her relationship or that a bad relationship caused her symptoms to increase. But what does a bad relationship have to do with celiac?

        Maybe you could try reading the book to get a better idea instead of reading highly salacious articles

      I tend to disagree. Jennifer Esposito is way longer around than Bradley Cooper. I knew about the celiac thing when it got her fired from Blue Bloods. From what I read, she put the paragraph about BC into her book, because a) people were still wondering what possibly could have caused the marriage to fail so quickly (I for one thought, he’s gay and she found out after the marriage) and b) was related to her celiac story since he did not seem to take care about her condition. If you have an allergy or an intolerance and need to take care of your surroundings (and celiac is a bitch, cause traces of gluten are enough to cause inflammation), you cannot share your life with someone who ignores your condition entirely. With celiac, you can’t just order pizza in, etc. And if he did more than ignore it, i.e. making fun of her condition or blaming her for it, this would qualify as a “mean, cold side” in my book. Be grateful god spared you food allergies/intolerances. It’s no fun.
