“It’s difficult for anyone to go through a separation, whether it’s on a public scale or not. It was important for us long-term to preserve our friendship and the dynamic of being loving parents to Flynn so we dealt with everything openly and honestly,” Kerr said.
“We respect each other and with respect comes understanding. When there’s understanding, I guess everything is a little more harmonious.
“We’re still very big parts of each other’s lives. There’s no reason for us to be anything but a united front. We still love and care for each other deeply.”
The 30-year-old posed topless for the magazine and insisted that she and Bloom will remain friends for the sake of their two-year-old son, Flynn.
“Flynn is the most important thing in both our lives. And because we share that bond, we both feel it’s important to be united.”
Executive producer of Channel 10’s Wake Up, Adam Boland, has spoken out about his bipolar diagnosis, and subsequent “breakdown” following the debut of the breakfast show.
In a piece published on The Hoopla today, Boland talks candidly about the show’s premiere saying he felt “nothing but darkness.”
The last time Boland had felt like this was in 2007 when he launched The Morning Show on Channel Seven, and it had debuted at number one.
While everyone else was celebrating at Larry Emdur’s house Boland was “at home, hiding behind a couch in a foetal position,” he goes on to say, “My then-partner had seen enough. The constant mood swings had taken their toll. It was time to seek help.”
Boland says the breakdown he suffered last month was worse than anything he’d ever experienced:
“It involved police, an ambulance and time confined to a ward that I never want to see again. (For the record, I think the concept of locking up someone whose mind already feels trapped does nothing to help.)”
During his well-publicised break from Wake Up, Boland was told to “man up” on social media and was horrified his own show “trivialised” Jonathon Trott’s (the English cricketer who flew back home) mental illness.
“It genuinely saddens me that many people still don’t see mental illness in the same way they’d view any other form of sickness.”
“Many people with mental illness already feel guilty. That shouldn’t be compounded by the ignorance of others.”
