Jennifer Esposito Slams “Master Manipulator” Ex in New Book — Is It Bradley Cooper? (VIDEO)

Blue Bloods actress Jennifer Esposito has a new, elaborately-titled book out, Jennifer's Way: My Journey With Celiac Disease — What Doctors Don't Tell You and How You Can Learn to Live Again, and it's attracting a lot of buzz — but less for its health advice and more for its relationship gossip!

As the Daily News reports, a third of the way through the book, the 41-year-old starts railing against an ex of hers. She never specifies the former beau by name, but she says he's "funny, smart, cocky, arrogant, and a master manipulator." She started dating him despite "an entire marching band squad of red flags" and despite the fact that she didn't "necessarily find him that attractive."

Furthermore, Jennifer writes, this former flame has a "mean, cold side" with a personality that could "flip on a dime." Her romantic drama with him made her feel "sad," "alone," and "sidelined" from her health issues until the relationship was over — "abruptly, rudely, and with the exact callousness I'd come to expect from him."

She and the American Hustle star married in December 2006, and she filed for divorce five months later.

Like we said, we don't know which of her exes she's dissing — but adding fuel to the speculation that she's referring to Bradley, as the Daily News notes, is that she talks about landing her part on the 2007 Christina Applegate sitcom Samantha Who? on the very next page. Coincidence?

At least Jennifer seems healthy and happy these days — with the gluten-free bakery Jennifer's Way in New York City, a part in the upcoming NBC drama Taxi Brooklyn, and a new fiancé in model Louis Dowling!
