Joan Collins: Don’t Share the Same Bathroom.
She’s been married five times, but the last one seems to have stuck. Her advice: Never use the same bathroom. “We’re never in the bathroom together. In fact, I think it’s important to have separate bathrooms.” It sounds trite on the surface.

The woman has a point, people. Just saying.
