Highlights


Donna Andersen’s story on Lifetime TV – watch the full episode online

Back in 2012, I was featured on Lifetime TV in a show called, My Life Is a Lifetime Movie.  I have just learned that Lifetime is airing the show again. You can watch the full episode online.

Each show covers the stories of two women, and in this one, called Husbands Gone Wrong, mine is the second story. The first one, however, is also a story of a sociopath—they actually call the guy a “psychopath,” and I’m pleased to hear the TV show using the word. My story starts at 30:45, although it plays better if you watch the entire show. Here’s a link to the show:

Your Disordered Ex – What you need to know so you can recover and move forward

Lovefraud Readers in Australia: Do you want to tell your story on TV?

Lovefraud has been contacted by a producer for the Australian broadcaster SBS. She works for the show called Insight. They are planning a segment called, “Partners & Lies: What happens when you find out your partner isn’t who you thought they were?” They are specifically looking for people who were married or in a relationship for a long time with someone who turned out to have a secret life.

The show will tape next week in the Sydney area.


Donna Andersen explains sociopaths and how they hook people in a new podcast

What is a sociopath? Why do people fall for them? How does the mental health profession diagnose them? And how can everyone protect themselves from these human predators? Donna Andersen answers all of these questions — and more — in her most recent interview.

Donna was a guest on MyNDTALK, hosted by Dr. Pamela Brewer. This hour-long interview is packed with information to help you understand sociopaths and how they affect their targets. Click the link below to listen or download the interview.

MyNDTALK – Love Fraud – Donna Andersen

Donna Andersen on BlogTalkRadio Sunday, Oct. 8 at 8 pm ET

I’ll be interviewed on Bonnie Kaye’s Straight Wives talk show on Sunday, Oct. 8 at 8 pm ET. Bonnie counsels straight women who have discovered, to their shock, that their husbands are engaging in gay sex.

People tend to think that the men who do this are gay, but haven’t come to terms with their sexuality. Sometimes that’s the case, but often the husbands are sociopaths who will have sex with anyone.

I’ve done Bonnie’s show before, and the discussion tends to be wide-ranging. So listen in! And if you have a question, feel free to call in!

Lovefraud Survey: How did you deal with a female sociopath?

I am currently working on a book about female sociopaths. I’ve collected a lot of data about the experiences of Lovefraud readers with disordered women — perhaps you completed my previous survey.

One of the topics I’d like to address in the book is how to deal with this type of person. So I ask you: If you have, or had, a female sociopath in your life, how did you escape, cope or move on? What techniques or strategies did you use to manage destructive behavior or get the person out of your life?

I’m looking for information in the context of any type of relationship:

A death in the Lovefraud family

Donna Andersen and Tracy Andersen — one of my favorite photos.

Tragedy is part of life. Tragedy recently struck my family and me. My sister, Tracy Andersen, passed away, suddenly and unexpectedly.

Tracy frequently helped me with Lovefraud, and if you’re a long-time reader, you may have seen her name. She posted many stories for me. She was a talented graphic designer, and she created many pieces of art for Lovefraud, such as the “Spath Tales” logo and “Senior Sociopath Survey” ads.

Tracy was 55 years old. For the past 14 years, she was living with Parkinson’s Disease.
