They say relationships are like glass—sometimes it’s better to leave one broken than hurt yourself trying to put it back together, unless that relationship is with yourself. Former Gawker editor and rehabilitated attention whore, er, gossip hound Emily Gould re-emerges into the media spotlight, this time to release her highly anticipated book of essays: And the Heart Says Whatever is an offshoot of her 2008 New York Times Magazine article that divulged her real-life Internet dramedy during her reign at Gawker. Beyond her eye-rolling fits facing Jimmy Kimmel on Larry King Live, Gould is best known for over-sharing her love life on the Web, making her both a media darling and pariah. It’s no wonder her memoir arrives at a time when Internet privacy is nearing extinction.
