Rosie Green | How to Heal a Broken Heart

View descriptionShare

Almost everyone has suffered from a broken heart in their lifetime... from that crushing first love loss to longer more mature relationships but rejection during midlife when a relationship breaks down after decades is so devastating with kids, houses, bank accounts, longstanding friends and family all adding to the complexity of a couple uncoupling whether that's by choice or, sadly, not.

Liz and Michelle are joined in this episode by Rosie Green, an awarding winning journalist and beauty editor who writes a weekly column in The Mail On Sunday, is a relationships expert on ITV’s This Morning and is the author of the best selling book ‘How To Heal A Broken Heart.'

Rosie talks candidly about what she went through after her husband of 26 years suddenly walked out on her and, perhaps more importantly, how she healed.

Rosie wrote her brutally honest yet often humorous book to help women in similar positions heal faster and move on. Marian Keyes described it as honest, comforting, and hopeful and Venessa Feltz said it describes what a broken heart actually feels like. During the podcast, Rosie talks through navigating the various stages of heartbreak and the road to being happy again.


  • A lot of women don´t recognise or ignore the warning signs of infidelity. Rosie explains what they are.
  • Often the person who is being unfaithful will feel guilt which translates into them blaming you and being angrier than usual.
  • Rejection leaves deep scars.
  • If you can afford it get professional help, do so. You can be brutally honest and speak openly with them in a way it is hard to do with friends and family.
  • When you are heartbroken your body is under a lot of physical strain, so eating nourishing food is important.
  • If you find yourself in a negative spiral, don´t be afraid to ask for help to break that cycle and do so sooner rather than later.
  • You need to set boundaries and make sure you are not walked over.


“Pretty much everybody has experienced heartbreak in one way or another.”

“Your book is brutally honest without being bitter.”

“It´s one of the few books that actually describes what a broken heart feels like.”

“Just because one person doesn’t want you doesn’t mean that you're unlovable.”

“I tried some of my summer clothes on - The only thing that I can fit into is my shoes!”

Rosie green is an award-winning journalist who writes a weekly column in the Mail on Sunday. She's a relationships expert on ITV´s This Morning and was a beauty director for 20 years for glossy magazines Elle and Red. She was also Trinny and Susannah´s assistant.

When, without any warning, her husband of 26 years walked out on her, she was understandably devastated. But out of this shocking life event came something good. It prompted Rosie to write a book - How to Heal a Broken Heart. It is a heart-warming, optimistic, and sometimes humorous look at what it is like to experience the heartbreak of divorce. The book is full of practical advice designed to help women heal faster and move on. Something that has led The Times to call her the poster girl for divorce.

Join hosts Liz and Michelle redefining life over 50 as empty nesters, embracing the highs and lows of midlife with celebrity guests and experts, sharing a laugh on their podcast sofa. We talk about real concerns, issues, and fun topics that affect us, our friends, and our family. 

Midlife is not just about the menopause (although we’d be the first to admit it’s right up there!) but it is a time of adventure, change and reset - with plenty of opportunities and challenges along the way. 

Whether we’re chatting about ‘boomerang kids,’ diet failures (and occasional successes!), pro-ageing, travel, changing relationships, or inspiration for new jobs or activities, there’s always room for one more on our sofa.
