Olivia Wilde Says Her Divorce Has Made Her A Better Actress

“The trauma of the whole thing has been humbling, and for the first time, I’m a little bit wobbly … It makes you a more empathetic person, and I think it’s made me a better actress. Weakness is something we don’t like to admit we have. We hold it against people, until we experience it, and then we feel more compassion for it … ["House" creator David Shore] said ‘You should get divorced every year; your acting’s never been better!’”

—Olivia Wilde talks at length about her divorce in the new issue of Marie Claire and says that while she and ex Tao Ruspoli are on great terms, their breakup has been rough on her. But it she sounds like she has good perspective on things and has been able to make lemonade out of these lemons. And that’s pretty cool. [Marie Claire] Keep reading »

You Are Cordially Invited To Jack White And Karen Elson’s Divorce Party

“We remain dear and trusted friends and co-parents to our wonderful children Scarlett and Henry Lee. We feel so fortunate for the time we have shared and the time we will continue to spend both separately and together watching our children grow. In honor of that time shared, we are throwing a divorce party. An evening together in Nashville to re-affirm our friendship and celebrate the past and future with close friends and family.”

— I will never understand why celeb couples feel obligated to release public statements about their breakups. At least Karen Elson and Jack White are (amicably?) going out with a bang. Does a couple get to register for a divorce party, too? [Pitchfork] Keep reading »

Betty White Gave Up After Two Divorces, But The Third Time Was The Charm

“I’ve had two bad marriages, and I don’t like to think of them as good mistakes. They were traumatizing to go through. You really feel like a failure when your marriage doesn’t work. But they did make me appreciate it when the perfect one came along… [Allen Ludden] was enthusiastic about everything. He was intellectually wonderful. He was silly. He was romantic. He knew how to court a lady. Eventually, he wouldn’t even say hello—he’d say, ‘Will you marry me?’ And I’d say, ‘No way!’ He was hosting the game show ‘Password’ in New York and I was living in California, and I said, ‘No way will I get married again.’ I kept saying no for a year… Even long after we were married, he’d call me up during the day and ask me out on a date. He’d barbecue a chicken. We’d have a glass of wine, put on a stack of records, and dance.”

Betty White writes in Newsweek that she felt like a “failure” after getting divorced twice and had vowed never to do it again. Apparently, with her first husband she moved to a small town in Ohio where she was responsible for killing the chickens. Her second marriage broke down because he wanted her to stop working. Betty is proof positive that you always get another chance at love. [The Daily Beast] Keep reading »

Get Revenge On Your Ex With Silicone

According to The New York Post, the “hot” new way for divorcees to get back at their ex-husbands is by getting “revenge surgery” — plastic surgery that gives women back the years they “lost” while married. Buying a new face and/or body is supposedly helping some women get out of their post-divorce slump. Alicia Hunter (her before and after is pictured above) felt like there was “no reason to be in Dumpyland,” so she took a trip to Botoxville and Boobtown. And now she loves the way she looks in a bikini! Another divorcee, Maria Sheffield, thinks her full body liposuction changed her whole outlook on life:

Spoiler alert! On this morning’s episode of “The View,” Billy Ray Cyrus will divulge that he and Trish are back together.
