You might recall that the last time Gabrielle Stone joined us, in the summer of 2017, she was experiencing a professional high, having made her professional directorial debut and won several awards and much critical acclaim for her short film It Happened Again Last Night. What none of us knew at the time, however, was that, behind the scenes, Gabrielle was experiencing a lot of personal turmoil and emotional upheaval, including a separation and eventual divorce from her husband after she found out he’d been cheating on her.
Later that summer, Gabrielle met another man, fell madly in love, and was about to embark on a romantic month-long vacation in Italy with her new love when he shockingly told her at the last minute that he did not want her to go with him—that he needed to go by himself. That left Gabrielle with two choices: Stay home and be miserable or take a chance and travel for a month on her own. Gabrielle not only choose to make her trip, but found herself thrust into a world of self discovery… all of which she’ll talk about, when she joins us in a few weeks on TV CONFIDENTIAL.
Gabrielle’s new book, Eat, Pray, #FML, asks the question “What do you do when you find your life has fallen apart and your heart has been ripped out and stepped on twice in two months?” In Gabrielle’s case, the answer was to get out of her comfort zone by going on a wild adventure, doing a lot of soul searching, and ultimately learning how to love and accept herself with the help of two tools: A Thought Onion and something she calls a “self-love” cocktail. Gabrielle’s story will resonate with anyone who has ever experienced an emotional gut punch—whether you’re male or female, and no matter what your age. It’s also very funny, very sexy, and, given the central role that food often plays in Gabrielle’s European adventure, is liable to make you feel hungry.
