Sassy TikTok grandma shares how she 'savagely' handled her womanizing husband
via Sasssy Gran / TikTok

A 95-year-old-grandmother has become a sensation on TikTok, a platform that's most popular among the Gen Z set. Doris, also known as Sassy Gran, has become popular for her incredibly bold and refreshingly honest personality.

She's had a tough life which has given her a special edge that you don't find with most nonagenarians. There's also her elegant couture to show the young kids what real class looks like.

Doris was made famous by her grandson Gio who clearly loves going out to dinner with his grandmother and hearing her stories and advice.


One particular video has been viewed 57 million times on Facebook and TikTok. In the clip, Doris explains how she took care of one of her ex-husband's many mistresses. The grandmother's "savage" besting of the woman who tried to steal her husband is as cold-blooded as they come.

"So you found out who she was, made friendly with her, and then what happened?" Gio asked, kicking off the epic tale.

Sassy Gran is proud of the "savage" way she handled the other woman and her husband. "'I know and I love it," she told her grandson.

In a follow-up video, Doris explains that she wanted to go even further than giving the woman a face full of food. "I wanted to slap her face black and blue," she said.

How she felt about her husbands mistress 😂😂. (FYI the mistress knew he was married)#sassygran


Doris would eventually leave her cheating husband and take her five kids with her. At a time when she had to work three jobs to get by, she decided to start a business that would help other mothers. She started a daycare center where people who on welfare didn't have to pay.

Sassy Gran is also a lifelong ally. Back in the '50s, her best friend was a gay Black man who she urged to come out of the closet. "Don't be ashamed," she told him.

She is wearing false eyelashes this week because she said it’s the month to be fabulous. #sassygran #pridemonth #gay


A scrub is a guy who can't get no love from Sassy Gran. Here, Gio goes over some of the men who'd like to date her on Tinder. Doris isn't impressed.


@sassygran

Gio has pranks! Grandma isn’t having any of it 😂#sassygran


Then there was the time she told Steve Harvey, a happily married man, that he should leave his wife. "I'm just shootin' off my big mouth," she said. "But if I had to say it again, I'd say it again."


@sassygran

She kept insisting he dump his new wife. She misunderstood what he said #sassygran @steveharvey


Sassy Gran is a great example of the old cliché that whatever doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. Doris admits that she's had a hard life but that's helped forge her into the confident, honest, and adorable woman that she is today.

Forget aging gracefully. We should all hope to be like Sassy Gran and age savagely.

That first car is a rite of passage into adulthood. Specifically, the hard-earned lesson of expectations versus reality. Though some of us are blessed with Teslas at 17, most teenagers receive a car that’s been … let’s say previously loved. And that’s probably a good thing, considering nearly half of first-year drivers end up in wrecks. Might as well get the dings on the lemon, right?

Of course, wrecks aside, buying a used car might end up costing more in the long run after needing repairs, breaking down and just a general slew of unexpected surprises. But hey, at least we can all look back and laugh.

My first car, for example, was a hand-me-down Toyota of some sort from my mother. I don’t recall the specific model, but I definitely remember getting into a fender bender within the first week of having it. She had forgotten to get the brakes fixed … isn’t that a fun story?

Jimmy Fallon recently asked his “Tonight Show” audience on Twitter to share their own worst car experiences. Some of them make my brake fiasco look like cakewalk (or cakedrive, in this case). Either way, these responses might make us all feel a little less alone. Or at the very least, give us a chuckle.

Here are 22 responses with the most horsepower:

Man uses TikTok to offer 'dinner with dad' to any kid that needs one, even adult ones

Summer Clayton is the father of 2.4 million kids and he couldn’t be more proud.

Come for the food, stay for the wholesomeness.

Summer Clayton is the father of 2.4 million kids and he couldn’t be more proud. His TikTok channel is dedicated to giving people intimate conversations they might long to have with their own father, but can’t. The most popular is his “Dinner With Dad” segment.

The concept is simple: Clayton, aka Dad, always sets down two plates of food. He always tells you what’s for dinner. He always blesses the food. He always checks in with how you’re doing.

I stress the stability here, because as someone who grew up with a less-than-stable relationship with their parents, it stood out immediately. I found myself breathing a sigh of relief at Clayton’s consistency. I also noticed the immediate emotional connection created just by being asked, “How was your day?” According to relationship coach and couples counselor Don Olund, these two elements—stability and connection—are fundamental cravings that children have of their parents. Perhaps we never really stop needing it from them.

TikTok about '80s childhood is a total Gen X flashback.

As a Gen X parent, it's weird to try to describe my childhood to my kids. We're the generation that didn't grow up with the internet or cell phones, yet are raising kids who have never known a world without them. That difference alone is enough to make our 1980s childhoods feel like a completely different planet, but there are other differences too that often get overlooked.

How do you explain the transition from the brown and orange aesthetic of the '70s to the dusty rose and forest green carpeting of the '80s if you didn't experience it? When I tell my kids there were smoking sections in restaurants and airplanes and ashtrays everywhere, they look horrified (and rightfully so—what were we thinking?!). The fact that we went places with our friends with no quick way to get ahold of our parents? Unbelievable.

One day I described the process of listening to the radio, waiting for my favorite song to come on so I could record it on my tape recorder, and how mad I would get when the deejay talked through the intro of the song until the lyrics started. My Spotify-spoiled kids didn't even understand half of the words I said.

And '80s hair? With the feathered bangs and the terrible perms and the crunchy hair spray? What, why and how?
