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.

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.

A breastfeeding mother's experience at Vienna's Schoenbrunn Zoo is touching people's hearts—but not without a fair amount of controversy.

Gemma Copeland shared her story on Facebook, which was then picked up by the Facebook page Boobie Babies. Photos show the mom breastfeeding her baby next to the window of the zoo's orangutan habitat, with a female orangutan sitting close to the glass, gazing at them.

"Today I got feeding support from the most unlikely of places, the most surreal moment of my life that had me in tears," Copeland wrote.

RumorGuard by The News Literacy Project.

The 2016 election was a watershed moment when misinformation online became a serious problem and had enormous consequences. Even though social media sites have tried to slow the spread of misleading information, it doesn’t show any signs of letting up.

A NewsGuard report from 2020 found that engagement with unreliable sites between 2019 and 2020 doubled over that time period. But we don’t need studies to show that misinformation is a huge problem. The fact that COVID-19 misinformation was such a hindrance to stopping the virus and one-third of American voters believe that the 2020 election was stolen is proof enough.

What’s worse is that according to Pew Research, only 26% of American adults are able to distinguish between fact and opinion.

To help teach Americans how to discern real news from fake news, The News Literacy Project has created a new website called RumorGuard that debunks questionable news stories and teaches people how to become more news literate.

A mom describes her tween son's brain. It's a must-read for all parents.

"Sometimes I just feel really angry and I don’t know why."

This story originally appeared on 1.05.19


It started with a simple, sincere question from a mother of an 11-year-old boy.

An anonymous mother posted a question to Quora, a website where people can ask questions and other people can answer them. This mother wrote:

How do I tell my wonderful 11 year old son, (in a way that won't tear him down), that the way he has started talking to me (disrespectfully) makes me not want to be around him (I've already told him the bad attitude is unacceptable)?

It's a familiar scenario for those of us who have raised kids into the teen years. Our sweet, snuggly little kids turn into moody middle schoolers seemingly overnight, and sometimes we're left reeling trying to figure out how to handle their sensitive-yet-insensitive selves.
