Supermodel Paulina Porizkova is getting raw and vulnerable with her fans this week in a crying selfie.
A month as passed since her split from Aaron Sorkin and one year-and-a-half after finding out her estranged husband Ric Ocasek, who passed away suddenly in September 2019, left her out of his will.
The 56-year-old shared an Instagram photo of herself crying with a detailed caption speaking on her “path of recovery” after “being betrayed.”
“I know you all enjoy happy posts, seeing people pick themselves up, dust off their pants and get back on the horse, all while smiling to let you know this fall just made them stronger and better people,” she began.
“But. Everyday is not a happy day in the path of recovery. Trust after being betrayed seems as far fetched as being shot into space. Correction. It’s easier to see myself shot into space at this moment.”
Porizkova went on, saying: “When you’ve been betrayed- promised something, only to have that promise broken without your participation – you were blindsided. You trusted someone you loved, and now all love is suspect.”
“But love is not possible without trust. And a world without love is not worth living. (All kinds of love),” she wrote. “So what does one do when you want to stay open, but the wind of betrayal keeps slamming the door?I guess -maybe – walk outside and brave the weather?”
Porizkova then joked she would be wrapping herself up in a “metaphorical closet pilling on layers for protection” and acknowledged that posting a crying selfie to social media is “the height of narcissism.” Hey, at least she’s self aware!
Just last month, Porizkova confirmed her break up with Sorkin to Instagram.
After announcing their partnership by walking on the red carpet at the 2021 Oscars in April, Porizkova confirmed that she and Sorkin, 60, have separated on good terms.
Last year, Porizkova spoke on her feeling betrayed when she discovered her ex-husband had left her out of his will.
“I would love to be able to be sad and miss him. And not also feel this incredible hurt and betrayal,” she informed CBS Sunday Morning co-host Anthony Mason in an interview that aired in March 2020. “It made the grieving process really, really tricky.”
