Announcement

There is no easy way to make this announcement as we have come to care very much about the lot of you. Stars and Tartan will no longer be releasing shows. Without going into a terrible amount of detail, Derek and I will be separating and ultimately divorcing. We have been having trouble for quite a few months and it has been decided that we should end things before we start hating each other.

We are thankful for the listeners who have been with us from the beginning and the support we were given by those listeners and our fellow podcasters.

I will still be bumming around as a listener, but my podcasting days are done. Without Derek and I, there is no Stars and Tartan.

Thank you again everyone, for everything.

Omg that's awful =(
This is truly bad news, and I am sad to hear it. I know Nessa, that you and I haven't really gotten to know each other very well, but if you need to talk, I'm here to listen

Thanks for the memories, both of you.

I am glad you both are able to work it so that you can part as friends. You two are great people and deserve the best! We are here for you if you need us!

Dear Gussie! I had no idea but it's good that you're not hating each other. I talk about the demise of the show on tomorrow's BFO but didn't realize the circumstances. Personally I'm going to blame it on Vera's phone call last week.

You know you can holla at your Fatty Daddy anytime. Keep smiling.

Susan said...

Oh, my Nessa... I'm so sorry. I'm here, though. Know that. Need to talk? Msg me. Call me. Do not go through this alone. I've been there. I've been close to going back there in the past month. It's hell but there is life after and it can be a great one!

Oh no, Nessie and Derek. I'm so sorry to hear you're splitting up. But you two do whatever you need to to end things amicably and remain friends. Wish you both the best.

Nessa and Derek,

I want to extend my deepest wishes to you both. While I am going to miss the podcast, I am even more going to miss hearing regularly from the two people behind it.

Hey Nessa,
Ron and I are here for you if you need a friend to talk to. This news took me totally by surprise. But we are here to support you.

Zig said...

Wow, I had no idea. May you two enter into new positive situations in your lives. I'll miss you two and the show. Be well.

Sad now. :( I wish you both the best.

Oh dear Gussie! Sigh, I guess sometimes life just happens :( Thank you for the amazing shows and all the fun you gave us. I will miss you and the Stars and Tartans terribly.
I will try to see this not as an ending but as a new beginning. I wish you all the best and don't be a stranger! We may not be in the same neighborhood but we are still friends and I need you as a part of my life. Love you!

Oh my dear! I am so sorry for both of you. You just never know what life will bring. So take out those fishing poles and start baiting your hooks! It's time for both of you to start fishing again for a sexy fish.

SteveINtheUKok said...

Totally shocked at the news. Things change, no one can know what good things await both of you in the future.

I wish you both luck in the future.

It's a tough time I'm sure but light is there at the end of the tunnel even if sometimes it is difficult to see.

All the best to you both as you move on in your lives. And thanks, too, for all the enjoyment you've provided. While I'll miss your show hugely, it's more important that the two of you are happy. Kia kaha and much love from the New Zealands!

This just makes me so very, very sad. Love to you both.

Wow I just read this and like many of the others I am in shock as well. You know I love you both and truly wish you the very best during this tough time.

Massive hugs

OMG...I'm so sad!! I'll miss you both! I love the Stars and Tartan.

The Gay Country Boy said...

It is a sad day when instead of throwing you lemons, life throws you an onion. And honestly, except for giving newborn babies hives, you really can't do anything with an onion. I hope you two can be happy with your decision and see that life can once again be a great thing.

Melanie said...

Sweetie, I am so very sorry to hear this. It sounds like you're both being very adult and reasonable about this, which says loads of good things about the both of you. If you ever want to talk, know that I'm here for you.

Maupassant said...

I'm sad to hear the news. I wish you both well.

*GASP!*
I am so very sorry to hear this news. I wish you both the very best and hope that things work out better for you in the long run.

Nessa my sweet, Nicole and I still want to travel out to the San Diego's to meet you and I hope you would be willing to stay in touch with me outside of the podcast. What will we do without S&T? It has been so much fun for so very long.

I was sad and shocked to hear this, especially as a new listener. But I wish you both the best in the future. My prayers are with you as you begin this new journey. Thank you for sharing your lives with us. You will be sorely missed!

David-That Blue Jeans Guy-Byrd said...

I don't know what I can say that has not already been said. I will miss both of you in the podosphere. Take time to be good to yourselves and each other as you begin this new phase of life. I'm sending plenty of love and light your way. Put me on the list of people who are here to talk if you need somebody.

Thanks for the great times!

spankingbeaarthur said...

Wow. Heart in my throat when I read this. Hugs to you both. Will miss your show so much.

So sorry to hear the news, but, like everyone else has said, I hope this next chapter in your lives is happy and healthy and filled with lots of growth!

Thanks for all the podcasts - you will be missed!
