LOVE IS ALL OSHER NEEDS
For his day job, Osher Gunsberg helps people fall in love. And it’s a role he says he’s enjoying more than ever.
Not only is The Bachelor enjoying increased success in the ratings in its third season, but 41-year-old Gunsberg himself is happy in love: A fact he credits with making the rest of his life fall into place.
But while finding the perfect woman — in his case, make-up artist Audrey Griffen (both pictured above) — was the first step, a far bigger one was making peace with himself.
“All the songs say it and it’s true, you can’t expect someone to fall in love with you if you don’t appreciate, accept and love yourself,” says Gunsberg.
“Taking care and nurturing ourselves makes us more effective in everything we do … I had to go through some pretty traumatic breakups in my life (including his ex-wife, actress Noa Tishby) and I got a chance to learn (that). Unfortunately I paid quite a high price for those lessons, but I learned them.”
Having now achieved the perfect balance of love, friendships and work, Gunsberg says it reflects in the happiness he’s found in all areas of his life.
“Without love in our lives we don’t make a very effective or useful friend, lover of employee,” he says.
