DIVA OF DAYTIME DISH WENDY WILLIAMS PROVES LOVE BITES ON INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY'S ANTI-VALENTINE'S DAY SPECIAL -- "50 WAYS TO LEAVE YOUR LOVER"

- Viewers Invited to Watch and Win During FORGET YOU Week Kicking off Friday, February 7 at 8/7c

(Pasadena, CA) - Love hurts on Investigation Discovery's all-new Valentine's Day special, 50 WAYS TO LEAVE YOUR LOVER, revealing breakup tactics taken by real people spurned by lousy lovers. 50 WAYS host, television star Wendy Williams is the viewer's best friend giving advice and relatable wisdom as she turns the camera onto breakup stories that are stranger than any tabloid rumor. Using recreations and interviews with the exes featured, 50 WAYS TO LEAVE YOUR LOVER sheds light on those who have felt the sting of Cupid's acid laced arrows when it premieres as a one-hour special on Valentine's Day, Friday, February 14 at 10/9c. To get viewers ready for the anti-Valentine's Day celebration, ID will kick off the first-ever FORGET YOU week, launching Friday, February 7, where fans can tune into the 8/7c broadcast each night for a code to enter to win a $5,000 retail therapy shopping spree on www.InvestigationDiscovery.com!

"Some say 'breaking up is hard to do,' but it sure wasn't for the people who have felt love turn vengeful in 50 WAYS TO LEAVE YOUR LOVER," said Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Destination America and Military Channel. "Bold and provocative both in and out of the spotlight, Wendy is the perfect host for this darkly funny special Valentine's gift from ID that's better than any box of ...poison chocolates!"

Everyone has their own list of deal breakers in a relationship, but a select few warrant the ballistic responses witnessed in 50 WAYS. Maybe your lover never keeps his word. Maybe they're second-rate in the sack. Maybe he hates your friends or, even worse, he's cheated on you with one of them. As Paul Simon sings it, "There must be fifty ways to leave your lover." Three stories of damning dismissal featured in the 50 WAYS TO LEAVE YOUR LOVER are as follows:

· It's love at first sight for Jennifer Klinkhammer and Leshaun Meane when they meet at a car show. Jennifer is so head-over-stripper heels for Leshaun that the exotic dancer offers to move him to Houston where she can be his personal sugar momma. But when Leshaun starts sampling other sweets in the candy store, Jennifer goes on a rampage to teach the lothario a lesson. Location:Chicago, IL/Houston, TX

· Truckers Roger and Kathy are on a highway of love when this couple's romance goes from 0 to 60 almost immediately. They zoom full speed ahead into marriage, but Roger can't seem to steer clear of female temptations while on the road. When Kathy catches on, she boils over and the two face off in divorce court. Roger emerges victorious but Kathy gets revenge by revving her engine and putting her pedal to the metal...right through Roger's house. Location:Muskegon County, MI

· Kierra Reed and Henry "Man Gizzle" Brown seem destined to be together. Kierra is dazzled by her boyfriend's ambition to be the next greatest rap star. But that success comes with a price. When Henry enters the club to take the stage, he becomes a totally different person...one who plays her for a fool. Kierra confronts him, hoping he'll change his tune and surprise her with a ring. Instead, this Jekyll and Hyde offers a love song gone wrong and when Kierra catches him again, she erupts with a volcanic fury that eventually lands her in jail. Location:Cincinnati, OH

50 WAYS TO LEAVE YOUR LOVER is produced for Investigation Discovery by Indigo Films with David M. Frank as executive producer, Carl Schick and Paul Sauer as supervising producers, and Chris Leavell as vice president of content. For Investigation Discovery, John Terp is executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, Kevin Bennett is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is group president.
