She revealed that her troubles at home lead her to seek emotional solace in another man. “There was a man I was friends with, another dad. We’d been having lunch and stuff. Texting. Talking on the phone a lot. Honestly, I had a crush on him. I like him. Maybe I even loved him? He clearly liked me too,” she wrote.

When she approached Marc and asked for a divorce, Busy admitted that he was totally shocked and asked for another chance. This led her to seek advice from her closest friends. Though one friend, Emily Bronkesh-Buchbinder, told her “Whatever you want, Pup. I’m there for you,” Michelle was a bit more direct.

Busy recalled that the Brokeback Mountain star told her “It would be really awful for two years and then you would find a new normal but honestly, if you can keep your family intact, I think you should do it.”
