Carolyn Moos in a melancholy yet pointed essay for Cosmopolitan about her former long-term boyfriend, Jason Collins. The NBA player gave her no explanation when he called off their wedding in 2009, she writes; in April, he called her to explain that he’s gay before publicly coming out but she says she’s frustrated he hasn’t discussed it further with her (“I am sad that the media seems to be a higher priority”). In other news, the former WNBA player says she has finally moved on, including freezing her eggs — something she wishes she had done before but “had put it off because there was some seed of hope that Jason might come back to me.” Sooo, that’s going to be one heck of a “closure” conversation, if they ever have it.
