I check her blog occasionally as she usually posts some interesting links… has anyone noticed an increase in baby/pregnancy related ones? I remember she posted years ago about her and Eric being unsure about kids, but this is reminding me of when she was getting married and it was all wedding stuff all the time.

This is just pure speculation, I'm sure it's more of the woman's rights angle that she's interested in but it's just something I noticed.

So curious about his too! I swear she mentioned Eric somewhat recently but now I can't find it. I get not wanting to drone on about him but she went from so over the top with the wedding stuff to nothing. Very strange.

I totally wish this thread was more active only b/c there's so little info on Rachel, it always feels extra juicy!

Did anyone see her latest post about how she's writing a book? On journaling. Thoughts?

Yep! I guess good for her! Although I feel that topic could be easily googled (and she's written a couple buzz feed posts herself) so not sure how useful a book will be. It looks pretty!

Okay I feel weird because I feel like I'm always gossiping about Rachel but for some reason I have always found her situation so weird and fascinating. I think she's absolutely nuts – and she's very clearly separated/divorced which she's apparently just never going to address. Her life just strikes me as so strange and inauthentic. She seems really neurotic (did anyone read that SUPER LONG post she wrote on her blog about how often she checks various social media? Unbelievably neurotic) and her life/persona is so "curated" I wonder if there's actually a real person at hr core.

Her whole situation with Eric was super super weird and, I thought, clearly wasn't going to work out. I wonder if anyone in her real life ever sat her down and warned her.

Anyway, anyone else still follow her?

I agree that it's all very weird. I think that this maybe IS the real Rachel…vapid and curated, image-obsessed, ego-driven…and the Houston woman married to a conservative was a persona she just tried. 

Do you have an insight on the separation/divorce? I wish there were some proof somewhere!

I still check in on her occasionally. Totally agree about the curated lifestyle – all the internet trends all the time, which I guess comes from working at buzzfeed but I think this is the true her. I wish we knew the deal with Eric… I remember she posted something about supporting a spouse through depression but that was a while ago.

She's always been image obssessed… I remember when she got her dogs, they had to be toy sized of a specific breed because they wanted a certain look. Her commenters urged her to look into rescues and shelters and she just gave a canned response along the lines of "this is what works best for us!". She wanted the dogs as accessories to her lifestyle and she wanted a certain look, that's all.

Anyways, I also feel weird for continuing to talk about Rachel when she doesn't really post personal stuff anymore but I can't help myself!

 I'm confused about her book on journaling. She calls it dot journaling, but I remember she wrote all those BuzzFeed posts about bullet journaling…and the two look very similar. 

 

I remember she and Eric once did Whole30 and wrote about it so I went searching for it and eyeroll. She wrote

It’s hard for me to say exactly how hard it was to stick with Whole30 because I was doing it with a buddy, and a live-in buddy at that. (And a f**k buddy! …buddies are awesome!)

Yeah exactly, she doesn't post anything personal so it feels extra weird but then again, she posted SO much personal stuff for years that I can't help it.

I don't have any definitive proof of a divorce but I just don't see what else could be going on. She never mentions anything about him, never references a "we" (and you know she would) and a lot of what she says about her life/routines just sounds to me like someone who is on their own. She never mentions her dog either so I assume she doesn't have them and why would she get rid of her dog? Lastly, and I feel a bit bad for saying this as I'm not sure if it breaks any rules but she's deleted everything of him from her social media and they aren't fb friends anymore (plus she used to have a wedding pic up and doesn't anymore)

I feel bad for her if it's true. Not only bc that sucks, but it can't be easy to spend years publically obsessing over every minute wedding and relationship detail and then suddenly need to pretend he doesn't exist idontknow

I'm always interested in the Rachel gossip and wish there was more! Until recently, her Twitter header photo was of her wedding day so I always held out hope they were still together but now even that is gone. She does mention a dog every once in awhile with pics on insta, so maybe they each got a dog? But as Michigan cherry says, her routines are just not those of a married person. As much as I like alone time, I don't spend my entire evenings doing solitary hobbies cause I have my husband too
I will say though that I generally enjoy her on social media. She is one of my go tos for smart, feminist writings on the internet. She posts a ton of good links throughout the week and in her Sunday round ups

I know of Rachel through A Practical Wedding. I like her well enough – feminist shit, interesting links. Plus she is gorgeous. Her marital status has been a fascination of mine for a while now, so thanks to the poster above who mentioned that she and Eric are no longer Facebook friends. She has always done a good job hiding her ring finger in photos, but she recently posted one on Twitter where she and some colleagues were in a group costume, and you can see there's no ring on the left hand. Ironically, she was dressed as a diamond: https://twitter.com/the_rewm/status/925445632810192897

Not definitive proof of anything, but another data point. I hope all is good with her, divorce or no- it must be tough to spend so much effort planning a wedding publicly only for things to fall apart.
