What to know about the mysterious housekeeper who’s been a constant fixture in your life for the past few years
The strange housekeeping assistant who you know well, but haven’t seen much of in a long time.
I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but we know her name is Tia.
Tia is the owner of a quirky online store, a home decor company, and a home-cleaning service.
Tiamat, a Chinese word for “twin,” was invented in the late 1800s to describe the appearance of two identical siblings.
Tias housekeeper is also a member of the Chinese New Year celebrations, which falls on February 1, a day of festivities for Chinese people.
(Read about the celebrations here.)
So, we thought, what could be the strangest thing in Tia’s life?
She works a full-time job as a housekeeper, and her husband is an architect.
And when they didn’t have enough cash to pay her rent, she found another way to support herself.
But that’s not all.
In a bizarre twist of fate, Tia was once a part-time housekeeper at an exclusive Beverly Hills, Calif., apartment complex, and has been the housekeeper ever since.
What could be even stranger?
She was once married to a member, and the couple divorced after she left.
That’s right: She’s married to two people at the same time!
And she’s been married to them at the exact same time for almost five years now.
Tiananmen Square was an epicenter for the Tiananmen massacre, in which hundreds of thousands of protesters were killed.
It is widely believed that Tia and the two men were the shooters.
TIA is known as a “sister” to the man who murdered her, but she’s not her real name, and we’re not sure why she was married to the gunman.
But if you’re curious, here’s a picture of Tia with the gunman: She works as a homekeeper at a luxury apartment complex in Beverly Hills.
The bizarre mystery has kept Tia busy for more than five years, and she’s now a regular fixture in the lives of her customers.
The story of Tiamats husband and her unusual love affair has gained international attention and inspired numerous books, television shows, and even a film.
What’s more, Tiamati recently published a memoir, The Love That Lives Inside My Heart, which was named a National Book Award finalist and an International Book Award Finalist.
And here’s the interview with Tia that we wrote about last year:
