He would talk about Padma day and night. He felt hurt and betrayed by her. He would talk about her so much I’d ask him to stop.

    Se fossimo in Italia, sarebbe lui a scrivere:

    “She would talk about Padma day and night. She felt hurt and betrayed by her. She would talk about her so much I’d ask him to stop.”

    “Weep for literary culture. After Salman Rushdie’s ex-girlfriend accused him of still pining for his ex-wife Padma Lakshmi in Page Six yesterday, Rushdie has responded in kind today. We are all trapped in the eighth grade, which never ends.
    Yesterday, Rushdie’s ex-fling Pia Glenn told the Post that Rushdie “talk[ed] about Padma day and night,” and that he was a dick because she wanted to have his children and he dumped her via e-mail. This is roughly analogous to your drunken ex-girlfriend e-mailing you a vicious screed in the middle of the night, and most adults have learned that the safe, gentlemanly thing to do is do not respond to those e-mails. Salman Rushdie, however, is no gentleman.
    So he wrote a lengthy, angry statement to Page Six proving that a) he is a thin-skinned, defensive child, and b) he is absolutely, incontrovertibly, indubitably still in love with Padma Lakshmi.
    Shouldn’t spending a decade or so of your life under constant threat of assassination by a global band of violent fanatics who want to silence you teach you something about what matters in life, and what does not matter? Note to Salman Rushdie: Shit like this does not matter. Stop talking to Page Six. Also, please do not stop talking to Page Six, because post-midlife-crisis dissolutions are fun to write about.”
