On the program, Ms Ree explained how her husband took the advice of The Barefoot Investor, also known as Scott Pape, to the extreme, insisting both their salaries go into a single account and they each get a strict $100 allowance after expenses.

She claimed her husband had become obsessed and financially controlling after buying his book and his newly adopted habits ultimately ruined her marriage.

Several viewers pointed out the show failed to mention an important detail during Ms Ree’s outburst - namely that she held a prominent position at a rival publisher.

Mr Pape’s books have been published by Harper Collins and Wiley, while Ms Ree is the head of marketing at Pan MacMillan.

She is also the author of a memoir and cookbook titled Heartbake, which explores how she rebuilt her life following the collapse of her marriage through her love of baking.

The show returns in March 2024 with new episodes.

New topics, new discussions, new stories… and a fresh new set.

I thought this forum was obsessed with new sets. Clearly not… :stuck_out_tongue:

But seriously, i am glad this is returning. I may not watch it every week, but watch a good chunk per season. Usually a few interesting topics and guests.
