“I’ve never gotten a black eye or busted lip, but I’ve been in relationships where I have felt abused in one way or another: mentally, emotionally, verbally,” Jennifer writes in an excerpt from her new book obtained by People Magazine.
“I know what it feels like for your soul to be diminished by the way your loved one is treating you….but everyday that you don’t walk out that door, everyday you accept things in your partner and in yourself, is a day that you’re saying it’s okay,” she continues.

Jennifer also bravely recalls the day “when everything changed.” She writes, “I had just celebrated our seventh wedding anniversary. Anybody looking from the outside in would have thought my life was great….What people didn’t know was that life really wasn’t that good. My relationship was falling apart, and I was terrified.”
She was getting made up for a photo shoot when she started to have a panic attack. “My heart was beating out of my chest, and I felt like I couldn’t breath….My mom was there and she rushed to my side…..I blurted out the words: “I don’t think I can be with Marc anymore.” Then I burst into tears,” she tells readers.
She goes on to say that “this road of healing and rediscovery has been a long one” but she is in “the best place” she’s ever been!
