"That was a scary thing. That was really hard. I didn't know how to not do that," she tells Stern. "I was just in love with him and needed to explore that and I was 24. … I didn't quite know what those consequences would be. But it's OK. I went through it."

Sure. But so did Parker. How's she doing? We'll soon find out, as she has a memoir, "Dear Mr. You," due out next month comprised of a series of letters she's written to the men in her life. This should be good.
