Earlier in the day, Cassandra spent a relaxed Sunday reading The Handmaid’s Tale.

She shared a photo of the book cover to Instagram and described the novel as ‘an emotional roller-coaster’, seemingly taking a thinly veiled swipe at her ex.

‘A good book for my journey. An excellent tv series that is an emotional roller coaster for women. Well worth watching!’ she captioned the snap.
