In the words of Haddaway, “What is love?” Because in my mind, it was strictly defined by the electricity forged between Bridget Jones and Mr. “Colin Firth” Darcy.
If you haven’t yet stabbed yourself in the heart by reading the MAJOR SPOILER that’s been revealed about the new book, stop reading now. You’ll only hurt yourself.
OK, so you’re still reading. You’ve either already been let down by the news that Mr. Darcy dies, or you just found out by reading THIS sentence. Are you OK? Do you need a sip of water? I’ll wait.
Now that we’re all hydrated and up on current events, we have to band together, support each other, and move on. Things like this happen. You’ve got to pick up the pieces and get yourself out there. And what better way to get over a broken heart than to fantasize about the new guys you’ll be schtupping by Christmas? In no particular order, these are the lovers that I think Bridget Jones should take comfort in once the book is inevitably turned into a movie (and Bridge has gone through the 5 Stages of Grief, of course):
The Crotchity Old Man Who She Ends Up With At The End:
The Hot Shot American Financier-Turned-Silicon Valley Billionaire Who Gives Hugh Grant A Run For His Money:
The Young, Available British Bartender Who’s Way Too Immature, But Oh So Sexy:
For The How Stella Got Her Groove Back Fantasy Scene:
The Hot PTA Mom Who Coerces Bridget To Take A Dip In The Lady Pond:
The Older Gentleman Who Secretly Wears Ladies’ Lingerie:
Of course, regardless of who she ends up with, we’ll still like Bridget… Just the way she is.
