This Woman Was Taught A Lesson By Her Ex’s New Girlfriend

There’s no need to sugarcoat it, relationships are hard. And when there are children involved, it can be even harder. With difficult exes, ugly divorces, custody battles, and new significant others slithering in to further stir the pot, everything is almost bound to go up in flames.

Well, Audrey Loving desperately wanted to rise above all of that nonsensical “baby mama drama,” but she knew it wasn’t going to be easy…especially when a new woman entered the picture. So, remembering that kids are always listening, Audrey logged on to Facebook to spread a message she knew the other woman couldn’t ignore…

When Audrey Loving met Corey Henry at age 18, it was love at first sight for the two blossoming youths. They were certain they would spend their lives together…or so they thought. You can never really be too sure.

But against the odds, their love continued to thrive, leading to an engagement and the promise to spend the rest of their blissful lives together. They were young and engaged with the whole world in front of them; seemingly nothing could go wrong.


While their relationship was flourishing, Audrey and Corey had a gorgeous little girl. They named her Riley, and with her birth, the trio officially became a family. But that didn’t mean everything was roses…


As much as Audrey and Corey wanted to make their relationship work, they struggled. Corey’s job meant they often spent weeks at a time apart. Distance and the stressors of daily life were putting them in a position they never imagined they’d face.

Unfortunately, the couple determined they had no choice but to end their marriage. While it was the best decision they could make for their own happiness, they worried about how it would impact their little girl.

Maternity Week

The couple promised to co-parent Riley to the best of their ability. Audrey had custody, but Corey aimed to be as involved as he could from a distance, enjoying time with his beloved daughter on weekends. Gradually, they got a handle on their new, modern family.


But, just when it seemed like they finally had everything figured out, with Riley’s happiness and sense of security on lock, the relationship took another dramatic turn, which threatened to end this peaceful arrangement once more.


You see, Corey met a new woman, and they began to date. Audrey was petrified. She knew they would both move on, but she hadn’t figured it would happen so soon. She didn’t feel ready, and that was the least of her concerns.


Audrey was overcome with fear and apprehension; would this new woman be a bad influence on Riley? Would Riley like her better? Would Audrey lose her daughter to this fresh maternal figure? Only time would tell.


As things became serious between Corey and his new girlfriend, Whitney, Audrey decided that she needed to take back control in this tug of war. She decided to let Whitney know who the real mom was once and for all…

So, she would write out overly meticulous instructions for Whitney to follow. Overbearing texts instructed Whitney on simple matters like not leaving Riley alone in the bathroom. Whitney’s reaction stunned Audrey.

When Whitney fully granted Audrey’s imperious wishes without question, religiously sending the mother photos of her and Riley together, as well as text updates, Audrey began to wonder if she was being too hard on Whitney.


Audrey realized she didn’t want to be associated with the dreaded “mama bear” stereotype, let alone villainize Whitney, who was nothing but sweetness to both her and her daughter. Whitney was the farthest thing from an evil stepmother.


Feelings of empathy towards Whitney grew in Audrey, as she recalled her own childhood experiences. “Growing up, I heard the negative talk about the ‘other woman,’ and I didn’t want my kid to hear the same thing,” Audrey said.


Once the mama bear softened, she saw Whitney in a whole new light. Her perception of “the other woman” went 180 degrees, which inspired Audrey to write a Facebook post that shook the internet.


In the Facebook post, Audrey showed extreme gratitude for Whitney. “I’m super thankful for her because when she [Riley] visits her dad, she [Whitney] feeds her, takes care of her, buys her gifts, and basically takes care of her like her own,” Audrey gushed.

As Audrey wrote about her positive relationship with Whitney, feelings of understanding and thankfulness flooded the screen. “Why do all these moms act so spiteful and jealous towards the other women?” she continued. “NO ONE said it was easy trying to be a mother to a kid you didn’t have. So when there is someone trying don’t push them away!”


“A kid can have two moms because, in my eyes, the more people that love her, I’m happy!!! I would never make her feel like an outsider,” said Audrey. Whitney had taught Audrey a lesson, too, helping her grow as a mom and as a person.


Many mothers were greatly influenced by Audrey’s astounding words of acceptance and positivity, which led to the post going viral. Thousands of joyous comments reside on her post, making the ultimate truth of Audrey’s story crystal clear.


Audrey was never in danger of losing her daughter; in fact, Audrey gained more than she could have ever dreamed of in Whitney, especially given how messy the end of a relationship can be.

In fact, Audrey gratitude was boosted even more by a stranger’s incredible family story she came across. On Twitter, user starlightgeek told of her friend’s bizarre wedding day. The story put Audrey’s worries into perspective.

A bridesmaid in the aforementioned nuptials, starlightgeek decided to share the story of what she called “the most ridiculous 24 hours” with the worldwide Twittersphere. And, once she did, it didn’t take long for that story to spread.


Understandably, the almost-bride wasn’t up to telling the cursed story of the disaster that became of her relationship to the entire world, so she gave her trusty bridesmaid permission to do it for her (What are friends for?). The story went like this.

Aubony Bridal

It was the eve of the bride’s wedding when the alleged chaos ensued. The Twitter-bound faithful bridesmaid went on to disclose the horror that the bride-to-be witnessed in the bedroom…

The eager almost-bride was shocked to find her fiancé in bed with none other than… one of her bridesmaids (not the Twitter friend). And no, they weren’t having a pillow fight. Believe it or not, this riveting saga was just getting started.

Let’s just say she was less than impressed. The girls (minus the blasphemous bridesmaid) weren’t going to let what would have been an enchanting, quiet backyard wedding celebration go to waste, however.

The bridesmaid clarified that not only was the cheating groom not welcome to their wedding-turned-potluck celebration, but they also changed the house’s locks to ensure his negative presence would be nowhere near the tattered bride.


Despite this tragedy that bedeviled the bride, she shed no tears, but she was purportedly filled with rage. Together, the bride and her two good bridesmaids commenced “plotting,” which sounds ominous as all hell.

The Atlantic

The tweeting bridesmaid added some comic relief to the tale, highlighting the fact that you shouldn’t mess with “two Slytherins and a Ravenclaw, especially if two of them have law degrees.”


With the Harry Potter reference and a nod to their impressive educations, the girls pointed out the smarts and ambition of the trio. The strong independent woman would be alright — but the former groom and his new girl wouldn’t be.


First, the girls cheerfully rid the house of the disloyal groom’s belongings, then proceeded to celebrate by means of a dance party with the company of some loyal guests, which seems oddly ritualistic. The no-wedding celebration raged on.


The ironic festivity didn’t end there, as the riled up women progressed to shooting the bride’s wedding gown with paintball guns. Nothing says fury like gunning down an overpriced dress with plastic balls filled with paint. Still, the night wasn’t over.

Unique Wedding Ideas

Because all seemed well (as well as they could be at least) until a ballsy move made by the likes of the unfaithful groom and his mistress bridesmaid shook the girls to their cores.


While the ladies were paintballing and dancing, the groom and his mistress took a casual trip to Las Vegas of all places, and weirdly decided to live stream their outing in the desert, most likely to infuriate the almost-bride. But it wasn’t just any outing…


Once there, the two degenerates live streamed their impromptu Vegas wedding, on the same day the groom was supposed to wed his fiancé. What could the almost-bride possibly have been feeling during this never-ending mess?

Little Vegas Chapel

Well, while the two bridesmaids huddled around an iPad to watch the profane Vegas ceremony. Having at first screamed in horror at the sight, the bride was now lying on the grass crying… of laughter.

We Heart It

Through her fit of laughter, the would-be-bride exclaimed that she didn’t dodge a bullet by not marrying her fiancé, but rather, she dodged an atomic bomb. We like the “glass half full” attitude. But how would she get her revenge?

The lousy bridesmaid, AKA the new bride, while gallivanting in Las Vegas, proceeded to brag about the fact that her and the new hubby were going to embark on a “real” honeymoon; well, not if the almost-bride had anything to say about it, which she did.

As it allegedly turned out, the almost-bride and her fiancé owned a shared bank account dedicated to the expense of their future honeymoon. The somewhat bitter almost-bride drained and closed the account right then and there. Revenge sure is sweet.

Starlightgeek guaranteed the Twitter audience that her and the party guests spent the day “fiercely loving and supporting” their beloved almost-bride. She ultimately figured that her situation could’ve been worse, as she’d read about weddings with far more drama than her own.


There was an even trickier love triangle involving a woman named Katie Hild. She suspected her big day might get iffy after her boyfriend of six weeks, Jeremy, revealed something about his past that left her stunned.

He told Katie that he had a son, named Landon. Katie was a little taken aback, as she was only 20 years old, but she decided to be calm about it. She asked Jeremy, “How old is [he]? 2?”

She wasn’t ready for his response when he told her his son was just three weeks old. Katie didn’t know what to think. They had been dating for six weeks and this was the first time he decided to tell her about his newborn baby?

As one can expect with a new baby, the tension was high. Jeremy was stressed in his relationship with Landon and his mom, Casey Jo Booker. And when Jeremy’s ex-lover and current lover met, they didn’t get along.

Katie knew that if she was going to spend her life with Jeremy, as she hoped, she and Casey would have to be in each other’s lives forever. They needed to make things work. She decided to reach out to Casey.

It wasn’t easy at first, but they agreed to go on “mommy dates”. Katie asked Casey to meet her for a cup of coffee. Waiting for Casey, Katie got even more nervous, but she knew this was a step they had to take.

They continued to try and work things out, and life kept happening, too. Eventually, Casey met her now husband, Tyler. He too had a difficult time adjusting to this tricky family dynamic…

When Katie and Jeremy decided to tie the knot, Jeremy knew he needed to reach out to Tyler. He sent him a message thanking him for being there for Landon and ended it by inviting Tyler for a drink, but they never went.

Finally, the wedding day arrived. Jeremy and Katie couldn’t wait to say their vows at their beautiful fall ceremony. They were surrounded by friends and family, and Katie’s mom was the officiant.

It was time for them to say their vows to each other, but when it was Katie’s turn she didn’t turn to Jeremy, she turned to the crowd and asked Casey, to stand up. No one knew what to expect, surely Katie and Casey were no longer enemies?

No one knew of Katie’s plan to call out Casey. Still, everyone turned their heads to witness the interaction that was about to happen…

As Casey stood up in front of the crowd gathered there, Katie started to speak. She said something that stunned everyone: she told them all about how she and Casey hated each other…

But for the sake of the little boy in both of their lives, they were able to move past it. On their special day, Katie invited Casey to do the first look. She wanted to give Casey a sunflower bracelet, like the ones her bridesmaids wore, to let Casey know how important she was.

The past was the past, and Katie was ready to move forward and start her life with Jeremy. They were just about ready to recite their vows when Katie asked Casey to stand up. After everything the pair had been through, Katie’s words were truly moving.

“First, I want to thank you for accepting me as your friend and allowing me to be a part of Landon’s life. I promise to be an amazing mother to your son. I promise to respect, work, listen, and communicate together as co-parents. I will love you guys no matter what. We are one family.”

Katie then turned to Landon. She said, “I promise to love daddy with all my heart, I promise to be a best friend to mommy and your daddy Tyler. We will be one big family that I promise you will have for the rest of your life. I love you so much.”

Katie knew she needed to “say her vows” to Casey and Landon first before she could turn to Jeremy and promise her life to him. From the beginning, four years ago, Katie knew it wasn’t going to be just the two of them in the end.

As the wedding came to an end, Tyler approached Jeremy with his white flag raised high. He said, “After all of this is over, let’s go get that drink.”

Katie shared her story in a Facebook post to illustrate how much time and effort it takes to build a supportive blended family and that it’s truly a blessing.

She ended her post with this final thought, “It’s possible to get along, communicate, and give the same rules/love/respect on both sides for your child/children. Go against the norm. BE that CHANGE.”
