Siggy Flicker Talks Write Your Own Fairytale Exclusive
Today, reality TV personality and famous matchmaker Siggy Flicker has released a book, Write Your Own Fairy Tale, billed as “the new rules for dating, relationships, and finding love on your own terms.”
We were lucky enough to catch up with Flicker in the midst of her press tour to talk about the book, her thoughts on relationships, and more.
“I am so excited I am jumping up and down for joy,” Flicker told us on the release of the book. “This book is everything that I’ve ever wanted in terms of why I do what I do.”
We asked her how she got the idea to combine all of her relationship expertise into one book. She told us that, “Since I was a young girl, I get an orgasm, a kick, I get joy out of changing people’s lives. i love it… I’ve always had this positive, fun loving way about me. When I started matching and putting people together and I became really, really successful, that’s when I got my own show and then from that, I began to think reality TV is so fake.”
“I was trying to change lives but I didn’t understand that it was reality TV where everyone was cast on the show,” she continued. “I said to myself that I wanted to reach a bigger audience. I started writing this book and it just went crazy from there.”
“I want to empower every woman and man out there to be able to write their own fairy tale,” Flicker told us on the goal behind what she’s written. “You don’t have to wait for a Prince Charming to come knocking on your door. You should know your worth and know yourself inside out. Your attitude is your altitude. Once you have that attitude, no one can take you down.”
We also asked Flicker how her divorce from her first husband- and marriage to her second- influenced her book and advice giving. She explained that, “When somebody gets married, they never think they’re going to end up in divorce. It was a shock and a half. I was changing people’s lives and putting people together, and here I was with this beautiful man and my marriage was failing. When you go through a divorce it’s a very hard thing. It’s a shock to your ego.”
Flicker detailed how her first husband couldn’t support the part of her that wanted to go out and change people’s lives, but was able to provide her with tons of materialistic things. “Money is not the key to happiness,” Flicker reflected on what she learned from her first marriage.
Luckily for her, she found love with her new husband, Michael Campanella. She told us that she’s never been happier before in her life.
Without giving too much away from her book, Flicker wrapped with telling us that, “Everybody needs a friend that’s going to lift up your spirits and make you feel good, that’s going to give you the good advice. That’s what this book is. It gives you all the recipes that you need, but you’re going to have to take out the mixing bowl, put the ingredients together, and start mixing and doing the work. It can happen. Like I say, every single person on this earth is worthy of love.”
Flicker will be heading out on a book and media tour, beginning this Sunday at Bookends in New Jersey.
