Sexy and Divorced Celebrity Women
It's not shocking when celebrities get divorced, and by the minute it seems. At the current divorce rate, including non-celebrities, you'd think it was in style. Although I'm not trying to glamorize divorce, I am trying to make another statement. Divorce is a part of our American society and effects many lives very personally. A woman should no be ashamed of being divorced because she was strong enough to end a bad marriage.
When a friend of mine recently got divorced, I realized it can happen any time to anybody. My friend is beautiful, but has a hard time believing that fact after the end of her marriage. Realistically, a woman is left feeling undesirable and often with children in tote. I'm paying tribute to the beautiful women on this page who are divorced, desirable, and proof that even sexy women get cheated on, dumped on, and ditched. We tend to admire celebrities and their stellar looks, but they are not immune to love's challenges.
#1 Scarlett Johansson
Scarlett, the woman of men's fantasies, is available again and newly divorced from People's Sexiest Man Alive 2010 winner, Ryan Reynolds. They were able to have a fairly private marriage by Hollywood's standards. Maybe because they weren't together very often in the short 2 years they were married- a typical Hollywood split. They blame distance and extended time away from each other as a culprit to their demise.
#2 Sandra Bullock
Sandra has starred in major movies beginning in the 90's, such as Speed, While You Were Sleeping, Miss Congeniality, and more recently The Proposal and The Blind Side. She is one of my favorite actresses and seems like the sexy girl next door so it was a surprise to me in 2005 when she wed infamous bad boy Jesse James. It was not a surprise, however, when she divorced him for being unfaithful in 2010. He had at least one ongoing affair just within the time span of his marriage to Sandra for 5 years.
I certainly hope she is on the right track now with an adopted baby and rumored to be dating Ryan Reynolds. Seems like we just heard his name. Oh yeah! He was just Divorced from Scarlett Johansson. What a small world Hollywood is.
#3 Elin (Woods) Nordegren
Elin is a former Swedish model, but probably more notable and famous for the poor girl who got the brunt of Tiger Woods' cheating antics. No Tiger didn't cheat at his golf game, as far as we know, but he cheated numerous times on Elin with girls who meant nothing, low standard, strippers. Elin immediately took action and filed divorce. Their divorce was finalized in 2010.
Tiger Woods has lost his family because he acted so out of context as a sports super star and role model and as a man with a family. Elin has been a protective mother throughout the fiasco and has custody of their two young children. Good for her for not tolerating Tiger's behavior.
#4 Denise Richards
Denise is remembered most for her sexy roles in Starship Troopers, every young man's fantasy girl, and Wild Things, possibly every man or woman's fantasy. She is a bombshell beauty who had a very rocky relationship with Charlie Sheen. They were married in 2002, had 2 daughters, and were finally divorced in 2006. They briefly reconciled in between those years, but apparently Charlie's death threats to Denise, cheating, prostitutes, erratic paranoid behavior, restraining order filed by her, and his drug and alcohol abuse finally made her draw the line and go through with a divorce.
#5 Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer was married to Brad Pitt and still remains single while her ex is married to Angelina Jolie and a father to their almost dozen kids. THe divorce between them was one of Hollywood's most public. There were rumors about Jennifer becoming too successful, she didn't want kids, Brad cheated on her with Angelina or Angelina stole him away. The tabloid and magazine spread on this were exhausting. Jennifer maintained a stone face through it all and was tired of the publicity about it. She has since been in a couple of relationships, but no marriage for her.
#6 Kate Winslet
You almost wouldn't think Kate could fail at anything. The actress is the youngest person to accrue six academy award nominations and is the third person to get two Golden Globes in one year. She's a phenomenal actress starring in Titanic, which put her on the map to stardom. She's a gorgeous classic beauty with a stunning English accent, brave enough to remain at a healthy weight despite the pressures of Hollywood. She has one daughter with a director she married in 1998, but divorced in 2001. She later married in 2003, had a son with Sam Mendes (also a director), but has since announced a separation with this current bloke.
#7 Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson's marriage to Nick Lachey fell prey to the reality TV show curse in their show, Nick and Jessica. Jessica has had a similar career life as Brittney Spears, who is also divorced. Both were good country girls bred to be stars (and bleach blonds). Jessica was married to Nick in 2002 and divorced in 2005. The Dukes of Hazard Daisy Duke girl is now engaged.
#8 Kendra Wilkinson
Kendra Wilkinson is best known for being one of three Playboy Bunnies living in the mansion with Hugh Hefner as his girlfriend. This fiasco was a reality TV show called, "The Girls Next door". She has since one on to star in her own TV show about her life and relationship with Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Hank Bassett. The curse of reality TV couples did not pass up on these two and after the birth of their son in 2009, she has sought counsel with a divorce lawyer in 2011 and is announcing the end of their marriage.
#9 Liv Tyler
Liv Tyler has been beautiful since she was a child, starring in her father's (Steven Tyler- Aerosmith) rock videos. In 2003 she married musician Royston Langdon of the music group Spacehog and had a son in 2004. She was in an on and off again process of divorcing him for several years, but finally split in 2008. She states she does not fall in and out of easily and has certain standards against casual dating.
#10 Shania Twain
Shania, born Eilleen Edwards, is a Canadian born country pop singer who has boasted some daring and sexy outfits on stage and in music videos, but let's admit it, she has the body for it. She had one son with ex husband Robert "Mutt" Lange whom she married in 1993 and divorced in 2010. He cheated on her with her best friend- yes, the kind of stuff made for a Jerry Springer show. She is number 10 on our list because she just remarried January 1, 2011. Maybe she'll have better luck this time.
