    Adrienne said before after Rob Kardashian she had to disappear.. now she is married I think she forgot 🤦🏾‍♀️ I swear she fakes her personality for the show she switch up a lot.. I never respond to these things but I didn’t like her response at all.. everyone falls apart when it’s a major break up I don’t care who u are.. look at Jeanie how many times she had a melt down over Freddie that unprofessional now imagine if she was at a cooperate job setting

    Your mental health is more important than some job. They'd fire you and replace you in a heartbeat. These employers ain't feeling you like that so you don't need to feel them like that either. If you need a break after a bad breakup, take care of yourself!

    So being in love and wanting to spending every minute with your man, isn’t control over your life 🤔. Girl ✋🏾. A break up, especially if in a long term relationship, is pretty mentally exhausting and can be traumatic. It’s okay to take a day or two off. That’s a huge change in your life.

    If you are the one who initiated the break up, and it causes you to miss work, then your ass needs to be FIRED!!
    Bottom line, the end of the relationship didn't come as a shock to you.

    Adrienne is so so wrong for this. So so hypocritical

    Adrienne’s response made me really upset. Mental health is extremely important, and if a breakup has you in a rough mental spot where you need a day to process and take care of yourself, there is no shame in that. It’s unempathetic and thoughtless responses like Adrienne’s that continue to perpetuate the stigma that keeps mental health from being a top priority. We’re not machines, we’re human beings. Your emotions and mental well being matter, prioritizing them is not “ridiculous.”

    yup . i was at work when my ex broke up with me... i was torn up and crying at work and my manager kept asking me what was wrong and it was so hard to be professional

  • Kirsty Whittaker

    I took a day off when I broke up with my ex. In my case I could not stop crying so I phoned my boss and told her the truth and she told me to take the day off. There was no way I could concentrate on my job that day. I work in payroll so I’m dealing with people’s wages so I need to have my head in the game every single day. I think it depends on what type of relationship it was and what job you have and if it requires you to be completely focused. Adrienne seemed a little bit heartless here and didn’t really think about different situations

    It's not about the fact that a man controls your life so much that you can't function without him it's about taking a breath after your closed a chapter of your life. Especially if the relationship was a long one it's almost the death of a future you had pictured. Everyone is different of course but you should be allowed to say your not okay when something as traumatic as a break up happens.

    I disagree, everybody deals with loss differently, and a breakup is a certain type of loss. You can take it very well and its possible if affects you much more than you think. If you need a day to deal with your mental health, girl you should be allowed.

  • Jennifer Hernandez

    I quit my job after he broke up with me. Literally the day after I just called and quit. I prayed and felt peace and felt that little nudge from God that it was okay to leave. God speaks to people in different ways and for me, it was okay to leave. Physically the stress was damaging my body, spiritually I was crushed. Mentally and emotionally, I was a disaster. I felt fragile and lost. It was so hard for me. I'm blessed that my family supported me and understood. Every break up is different, no matter how big or small or how long the relationship was. I was planning my wedding, so it was devastating for me when he left 9 months before the actual wedding date. God will provide. Pray about it, scream, cry, pray! Whoever is going through a break up, you will make it, in Jesus name!

    Adriene. You sound so ignorant. I went to work in tears and couldn't function and had breakdowns to a point where my boss hugged me as she found me in the bathroom in emotional pain. Yes, emotional sickness is real. There is scientific proof, look it up

  • Maddie Schmidt

    I think it depends on the breakup and the relationship. If you’ve only been dating for a few weeks then you should move on and go to work. I think it would be fine if you find out your partner you’ve been with for over a year is leaving you then take a day to collect yourself, but be ready to work when you come back tomorrow.

  • Savannah Love

    Of course they don’t think it’s okay, they’re working their dream jobs! If you’re at a “regular” job it’s already more difficult to go to work on an average day than it would be for people who do their type of work or make their type of paycheck. If I want to stay home one day from my crappy desk job because I’m heartbroken I’m gonna. Mental health is so important!

    Mental health is very important. As women we need those days to get ourselves together cry for one and pamper yourself the next. If you don’t take those mental health days you will crumble and that’s not a good look.

    I was taught if it would make it better stay home. If your just going to sit and cry go too work. Now if your really a mess and can't hold it together then he'll yes call in boo! You wouldn't be doing anyone a favor by going. Me time before jail time.

  • Sonya Diaz

    I hate that Adrienne said at what point do you let a man control you to the point of not going to work....pissed me off! Like there is so many reasons you'd want a day off after a breakup especially if it was a long term relationship...what if you needed to move out asap..what if you needed to get tested cuz the Mf cheated, what if you had to go find a place to stay..what if you had kids to figure out a new schedule with.... Like soo many reasons. And when Tam said her friend was a bad energy and didnt want that person around her and she needed to get it together within a day. Like obviously ur talking like a boss and not a friend. Someone that cares for ur well being! This whole segment bothered me!!

    Adrienne is not really reasonable and realistic on this one. And all the women who have applauded to everything she said are the same ones who wouldn’t even wanna see the color of the sun after a very hard breakup.
    Dear Woman it’s okay to feel vulnerable at a certain point, then after that you’ll feel stronger ❤️, Adrienne is just stipping bullshit dont worry

  • Giselle Ramirez
    Giselle Ramirez 4 months ago

    ADRIENNE SOME PEOPLE JUST NEED A FUCKING A DAY TO GET IT TOGETHER. Don’t be stupid. You don’t have to be extreme like that. How do you go from needing A DAY TO GET YOUR EMOTIONS IN ORDER TO DEPRESSION? I’m sure when you contemplated getting robs name removed for your ass you were reaaaal sad about it but you also didn’t have an actual job to go to everyday or even every other day prob at the time so you don’t know dang

  • Shyanne Clarkson
    Shyanne Clarkson 4 months ago

    I’m with Tam. When I went through my first heartbreak I showed up to work miserable, I had a poor attitude, I was running to the bar to cry every 30 minutes. So I feel like ONE day isn’t bad to take off and have to yourself, to get it together enough to allow work to distract you. Let people be alone, nobody wants to be around that energy anyway.

    Didn't Adrienne go to Paris to reflect after shr broke off her engagement?
    I love you guys, but I must say I disagree with you. Going through a breakup is mourning a relationship and a future you had envisioned, it's a really hard thing to go through and I think you should be able to wallow one day without other people thinking you're weak

  • AhMaisingDonna M

    Instead of saying "I'm sick", it may be best to just say "I'm not feeling well" to get the day off

    Adrienne really needs to THINK before she speaks! She sounds arrogant 🤦 there is nothing wrong with needing a day or two to collect yourself and really take in what just happened to you! She's so in love with her husband, I'm pretty sure if something crazy happened and he left her, she would need sometime off! She wouldn't be herself on the show.

  • Khadija Ghafoor

    So according to adrienne, if a man divorces a woman after cheating on her and they have kids is not upsetting enough to miss a day of work? Question is out of curiousity

  • IBelieveInMiracles
    IBelieveInMiracles 4 months ago

    I found out my ex husband cheated on me right after having our third child, who was born sick, and my father was dying and my mom diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and I was in a foreign country with no family and friends.. So yeah, I need an f’ing day off from work!. Mental health is real Adrienne. I am disappointed. Extreme heartbreak can definitely lead to depression and is a form of grief.
    People watch this from all over the world and not everyone can afford to go to mental health professionals and in many cases it is not even an option. Sometimes the only choice is to take time off to get your mind in order, cry as much out as possible, stay with your pain, before you can function in a work environment. So yes, allow people to take time off if they are severely heartbroken and can barely survive their emotional pain.

    It’s not about depending on a’s about a day to’s about having a day for yourself and your mental health. We’ve all been there. If you need a time, if you need a break because you know you are not ok , then you do it.

  • Chelsea Steuwer
    Chelsea Steuwer 4 months ago +1

    Also I don't agree with what adrienne said that if you cant function after a relationship ends then there wasnt something right to begin with or it wasn't healthy.. Thats not true in most cases.. It depends on how deep your heart was in it.. And how much your life revolved around this person.. If you love deeply and care about something so much and it is destroyed.. Of course its gonna hit you extreamly hard at first.... Thats just natural... If you go on like.. yeah this is hard but ill be okay.. and it doesn't really effect you.. idk If feel like.. you were already out of it/anticipating it.

  • Chelsea Steuwer
    Chelsea Steuwer 4 months ago

    I agree with what was said that all breakups are not created equal. So I think it depends on the situation. I know when I was in an abusive relationship and cheated on/broken up with the chaos of it all it was really debilitating to where I couldn't function.. I couldn't hold a smile.. I couldn't even leave my bed.... I was NOT okay. So I needed to take a day and call in sick to get myself together.. Also all jobs are not equal either so for me I work in customer service... I really wasn't going to be too helpful anyways, and I know I had people to cover me if needed so I feel it was justified. Plus mental health is just as important as physical health. I think you just gotta do what is right for you.. I also was in said relationship for ten years.. So It was a big part of my life that got shaken up.

    💔 *Love hurts! I think it's okay to call in sick for a couple of days until you're all cried out. Especially, if you're in the hospitality industry or any other job dealing with the public, where you have to smile and pretend to be happy. I'm sorry I can't smile when my heart is broken in two, I need at least a couple of days to recover.*

    I had to take days off because of everyone at work knows my ex and they kept asking what happened. I couldn’t function. I never called in sick. I just said I need some days off. They don’t need to know why you are taking the days off. You just need to worry about your health and well-being.

  • Jaylene
    Jaylene 4 months ago

    I DISAGREE with Adrienne.
    Mental and emotional health is important. If it’s just a day to let it out and recuperate, I say do what’s best for you. Life is too short for yo to be more worried about a JOB than your wellbeing. And honestly, I think Adrienne has these types of responses because she has a good job. Like girl, if I had a job of sitting at a table and talking for daytime television I wouldn’t miss a day either.

    Everyone takes break-ups differently. It depends on the length of the relationship, whether it was a long engagement or a short courtship. Break ups are equivalent to loss, and maybe you need a day or two to grieve. Never try to be so strong that you don't attend to your mental or emotional health. If you need a day, and you are able to, take the day to collect yourself, cry, rest, so you can function properly.

  • Alexandra
    Alexandra 4 months ago

    Depends on the situation and on the breakup. My last relationship I actually wanted to go to work when things started going south and even immediately after the break up because I got to communicate with people in a way that wasn’t negative and it was a valid excuse for not checking up on my messages or social media. Bot now, if my marriage ended god forbid, I would definitely need a couple days before being able to function. Heartbreak can be real af guys. There is nothing wrong with taking some time to heal yourself, there just has to be a line drawn somewhere to keep self care from turning into avoidance.

    Trust me babe everyone is different!
    Broken heart syndrome - real health critical symptoms that rear from emotional breakdown is really real. A man I thought I would marry after relationship dumped me by text. I had to go home early as I had a panic attack, due to I had so much invested in him. And people who suffer with anxiety as it is just makes it worse. I think don’t take the mic however you should be allowed a day to reevaluate and get your bearings.

  • Erika Kane

    Mental Health is real. If your head hurt and you took the day off that would be can take time off for your mental stability too imo no difference. Not to mention you could cost your employer business if you go to work with a bad mindset. Nothing excessive though and not if you have one of those stupid break up to make up relationships! Yeah I said it 😂

  • Blue Jay
    Blue Jay 4 months ago

    I get the point you're trying to make Adrienne but sometimes it is not about the thought of not being able to live without the person but more about taking some time to pull yourself together mentally and emotionally. For example, if a person walks in on her boyfriend with a close friend or relative in her bedroom. The betrayal takes time to get over because there are emotions involved. Taking a day off could be the smart thing to do, because you need to let yourself cope and not pretend something hurtful didn't just happen to you. It's better than having to suppress emotions throughout the work day. I think acknowledging you're hurt and dealing with it, is healthy.

  • A New Love Official

    It always depends on how or what is the reason for the break up because every people has our own way on how we face our problems. But if you think that you really need help then it's really a great idea to look for someone to talk to and share your problem.
