Mom Sells Her Ass(ets)

A mom in the throes of the housing crisis and a dating drought takes out an ad on craigslist. Is the idea  savvy or stupid?


What's a mom to do when she has a house to sell in one of the hardest hit housing markets of south Florida and she's also trying to hook up with Prince Charming? The enterprising Deven Trabosh put up a dual ad on, selling her house and her hand in marriage. Her 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bath house sounds good, and so does she, listing herself as a tall blonde licensed real estate agent who loves to travel.

It all seems like it could be a "happily ever after" for some nice guy looking for a house and wife all in one shot. But there's a catch. A glaring omission from her ad is that Trabosh is mom of a 14-year-old daughter still living at home--and as we all know a teenage daughter in your house is anything but a fairytale.

The daughter, keeping with disgruntled teen traditions, is, of course, embarrassed by her mom's ad. But would she be even more embarrassed if her mom told the truth about her existence? The ad could read: "House and wife also include one hormonally imbalanced teen and huge monthly text messaging bills."

Is the idea of an ad that combines selling a house and searching for love stupid or savvy?

Is she selling the house so she can pay for that boob job?

Wow, The comments before me , Can you be anymore jealous of her. Dont down her because your ugly and most likely living in a trailor.

No, I just don’t think a lady should sell herself on Craigs list. If she is really all that great, why can’t she find a man the right way? If she is so beautiful, why does she need to improve herself with boob jobs?

” Trailor ” is actually spelled trailer.

Dude, no way she’s 42. Lying.

Also, “your” is YOUR, possessive. “You’re” is YOU ARE, which I believe is what you were looking for in that sentence, Jaclyn.

I think this chick’s idea is ingenious. Brilliant way to capitalize on an opportunity and get some publicity in the process.

Interesting, all the cutting remarks on this post. Funny how brave and rude you can be on the web when there are no ramifications for your blatant rudeness and catty remarks. I doubt any of those being so rude would have the courage to say things about her breasts or her choices if you were looking at her. Cowards.
