Phoenix, AZ- This has been a busy week in the celebrity divorce realm with the internet still buzzing about the impending split between Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas. The nasty divorce between liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore and his wife of 23 years also captured the media’s attention. But Griffith and Moore weren’t the only celebrities dealing with divorce drama.
It’s been almost to the day since “The View” host Sherri Shepherd filed the docs to divorce Lamar Sally, her second husband and she has been silent about it until now. In an interview with Us magazine, Shepherd finally opened up, though she didn’t talk about the particulars of her touchy split with Sally, she did discuss how important it is to have a the support of friends and family. And, of course, an excellent divorce attorney.
“Have really good friends around you, so you have a soft landing place,” Sherri said, “I have really amazing friends.” And she’ll need their support since her and Sally are arguing over who will get custody of their daughter due to be born via a surrogate next month.
Shepherd knows you can’t let a divorce bring you down and is trying to keep her son Jeffery, a product of her first marriage to Jeff Tarpley, out of the middle of her separation from Sally.
“For me, my child can’t afford to see Mommy having a nervous breakdown. It’s not in the cards,” Shepherd told Us.
She said “you can’t beat yourself up,” adding, “You look, you do some introspective work, and you try not to make the same mistake.” Wise words from Shepherd.
Shepherd’s divorce is just winding up, while “Teen Mom 2” star Jenelle Evans is now finally free from her first husband Courtland Rogers just in time for the birth of her son Kaiser, Hollywood Life reported.
Evans who lives in North Carolina filed for divorce over a year ago but it could be finalized until state’s mandatory wait period was up. It was up on June 10 so Evans didn’t waste any time making sure she and Rogers could go their separate ways and she could devote herself to new boyfriend, Nathan Griffith.
Like many young people, 22 year-old Evans and Rogers married impulsively in December 2012 but their troubled marriage came to an end a just four months later in April 2013 after the couple was busted for heroin.
Rogers didn’t show up in court so he waived any right to support and any other assets the couple may have accumulated in their brief marriage.
Evans’ divorce was a simple one and she’s thrilled to be moving on, but Shepherd is in for a lengthy and complex battle. Good luck to both of these ladies.
