New NBC show is looking for couples!

Monday, August 24th, 2009



Jerry Seinfeld, NBC, the Executive Producer of The Oprah Winfrey Show and the producers of “Super Nanny” now bring you…

“The Marriage Ref”

A comedy/reality series where celebrities and a relationship referee help squabbling married couples make peace. Created by Seinfeld, this relationship advice… with a comic twist.

“The Marriage Ref” casting team is searching the country for outgoing and opinionated married couples, willing to appear on national television, who have a long standing argument about video games. Does your spouse spend more time playing a game than with you? Do you think they live in a “fantasy world”? Does your other half not understand gaming and how important it is to you? Do you just want to be left alone? Want to make 1500 dollars?

Please include your contact info, city you live in, photos, and a paragraph about why you are the perfect couple for this show. Be sure to include a brief explanation about your arguments and tell us why you are RIGHT and your partner is WRONG!

If this sounds like you or someone you know, please

Sherry is interviewed LIVE on Ireland’s Tom Dunne Newstalk Radio show

Thursday, November 6th, 2008

It’s 4:36am EST and I have just finished a live interview! I was just on the Tom Dunne morning show (it’s about 9:36am for them over there) talking about the site and telling a bit of my own Gamer Widow story. It was a lot of fun and also a bit nerve wracking. It’s funny, I have done countless interviews but the live ones still get the butterflies flying in my tummy.

Tom was very friendly and really put me at ease. I am waiting to see if they can get me a copy that I can post here. As soon as they do I will post it in our Media section.

I had really short notice or I would have announced my being on the show earlier so that someone might have been able to record it. Oh well…next time Gadget, next time!

Back to sleep for me!

Anyone in the UK want to be interviewed for the SUN?

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

Hi all,

Laura Stott from the SUN in the UK is looking for couples to interview for an article. I think it is a great opportunity to bring awareness about this growing problem. Feel free to email her at and just let her know that you are a member here on the site.

Here is her original email to me:

Hi There,

I am a journalist writing a piece about gamer widows for a piece in The Sun newspaper in the UK (Newscorp).

I am looking for two UK based couples who would be happy to talk to me about the effect playing virtual world games has had on their relationships. They must be happy to be pictured.

If you are able to help or point me in the right direction that would be wonderful. I can be reached on this email address.

many thanks

Globe and Mail article about gamer widows

Friday, October 31st, 2008

On Wednesday I was interviewed by the Globe and Mail (a local paper in Toronto, Canada) about my experience as a gamer widow and about my experience being addicted to World of Warcraft for a while (yes that’s right, I have been on both ends of the spectrum).

Today the article went to print! Read it here:
