THE RETREAT JUNKIE

OCCUPATION: OWNER OF WUNDERLICH KAPLAN PUBLIC RELATIONS

Location: BROOKLYN, NY

relationship status: DIVORCED

GOAL: 

Newly divorced Gwen has been on THIRTEEN wellness retreats. She is on a spiritual quest to become “Gwen 2.0” after her sexless marriage left her brokenhearted, overweight, and depressed. So far, she has lost 30 lbs, taken philosophy courses, and signed up for dating websites – but this progress feels minimal to her. Gwen can’t stop signing up for lavish retreats, and hoping/praying that she’ll eventually get where she’s trying to go. Gwen admits to having many secrets, and it appears she isn’t fully honest with herself or anyone around her.

BACKGROUND:

  • Gwen is the CEO of Wunderlich-Kaplan Public Relations. Her client list includes Maserati, Henri Bendel, and Fujifilm.

  • Gwen’s demanding career requires her to be on-call 24/7 which leaves her physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausted.

  • Gwen’s disposable income allows her to shell out the big bucks for the most VIP and exclusive wellness retreats in the world.

  • Gwen recently left her ten-year marriage after she realized her light has burned out. She is trying anything and everything she can to find fulfillment and true happiness.

 

FAMILY:

  • Gwen was adopted when she was a baby. Growing up, her mother told Gwen she’d be distraught if she tried to contact her birth parents.

  • When Gwen turned 40 she had a mild breakdown and needed to know who her biological parents were.

  • Gwen suffered an identity crisis when she learned her blood relatives were “ho-hum, ordinary, K-Mart wearing people.”

  • Gwen is concerned that she has missed her opportunity to have children. She is worried that she’ll have no one to take care of her when she’s older.

PRIOR RETREAT WELLNESS/EXPERIENCE:

  • Gwen has been on wellness retreats in Malibu, Peru, Panama, Costa Rica, and more.

  • She’s always trying the latest fads, and reads GOOP religiously.

  • Gwen says she’s basically a professional retreat-goer!

 

CAST CONNECTIONS:

  • Gwen and Sandi will be fast friends and bond over being overworked and undersexed!

  • Gwen will lust after Crosby’s charming ways, and flirt with the locals as per usual.
