We haven’t Jennifer Esposito’s (Spin City) name in a while, as apparently, her Celiac disease has actually kept her from work. She was an actress on Blue Bloods until her medical condition affected her availability, after which she was replaced. (The symptoms were quite severe: She lost teeth on set, had panic attacks, horrifying stomach cramps and unsightly rashes.)
Interestingly, Esposito did open a gluten free bakery in New York City for others who suffer from Celiac disease, and in 2010, she was briefly engaged to tennis star Mark Philippoussis. She has not, however, had any work since 2012.
Perhaps it was because she’d devoted all her efforts to that bakery, as well as a memoir she was writing mostly about Celiac diseases, Jennifer’s Way (coincidentally, that’s also the name of her bakery). In it, she also talks about a toxic relationship she had, and by lining up the dates, it’s easy to identify the toxic member of that relationship as Bradley Cooper, was was married to Esposito briefly in 2007.
Of that relationship she writes, according to the NYDaily News:
She describes the mystery suitor as, “funny, smart, cocky, arrogant and a master manipulator,” adding that she didn’t “necessarily find him that attractive.” They quickly became a couple, although the actress says her boyfriend had a “mean, cold side” and “his personality could flip on a dime.”
Esposito claims the relationship was an unhealthy one, focused primarily on his needs and nothing else and that she was “a nonissue.” Esposito also writes that she felt “sidelined” from her own health and needs.
It’s unfortunate to learn that, at least in 2007, Bradley Cooper was more like his Wedding Crashers character than his more recent public personae suggests.
Since Esposito, Cooper has had relationships with Renee Zellweger and Zoe Saldana. He is currently dating 22 year old Suki Waterhouse, who barely looks her age.
