Jennie Garth is making divorce look easy. I am sure it was horrendous to go through but I tell ya, she is looking great on the opposite side of divorce. She lost weight, got herself together, got a new love, and is raising three gorgeous daughters with her now ex-husband Peter Facinelli. They had an amicable divorce, split all duties 50/50, and still even share a joint bank account that they are planning to keep for their kids. Don’t ya wish all families could do divorce like this?

Coming hot on the heels of Tom and Katie’s weirdly quick divorce settlement, this item from Blind Gossip: “When the person who appears to have the power in a relationship backs down quickly in a dispute, you know that there have to be some compelling reasons why. Although all the talk up to this point has been about his involvement with a powerful group, there were actually three other reasons he settled so quickly.
Here are the three reasons: 1. His very personal relationship with a professional athlete. 2. His very personal relationship with a musician. 3. His very personal relationship with a famous actor.
She was ready and willing to expose all three relationships to get what she wanted. The scandal of having these three famous people deposed by attorneys about their sexual relationships would have destroyed all four men. So, he gave her the thing she wanted most so that his biggest secret could remain a secret.” (via ONTD)
OBVIOUSLY, the sports star is David Beckham and the famous actor is Jeremy Renner, duh. Most commenters at ONTD and Blind Gossip are assuming the musician is Rob Thomas, whom he was rumored to be sleeping with back in 2005, but I never really bought that. Any other guesses?
On Tom Cruise: “He has been Tom Cruise for 30 years, I know who I am and where I am and where I want to go, so I want to focus on that.”
On starting fresh in her 30s: “I feel sexier. I think in my 20s, it’s like you’re trying too hard to figure everything out…I’m starting to come into my own. It’s like a new phase.”
On being her own person: “Things are not handed to anyone. If anything, you work a little bit harder when you’re in such visible circumstances.”

From Blind Gossip: “This celebrity couple is close to a final agreement over how everything – including the child/ren – is going to be divided in the divorce. However, the wife’s legal team is having her keep one chip in her pocket for the divorce trial. If the husband’s team tries any last-minute maneuvering, the wife is not afraid to reveal an incident where she (along with their child/ren) caught her husband in bed with a family friend of theirs. The friend is a professional athlete. In case you’ve been wondering why the couples rarely get together for more than an hour and a photo op – this is the reason.”
Both People and The Hollywood Reporter are saying that Katie and Tom are dunzo. ”This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” Holmes’ attorney, Jonathan Wolfe, said in a statement. “Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.” Of course, in THIS MONTH’S issue of Playboy Tom said that his marriage was “stronger than ever” and that he’d “loved Kate since the moment he met her.” Gushes Tom: ”She is an extraordinary person, and if you spent five minutes with her, you’d see it. Everything she does, she does with this beautiful creativity.” Calling Holmes, 33, “funny and charming,” Cruise says he lights up when she enters the room. “I’m a romantic. I like doing things like creating romantic dinners, and she enjoys that. I don’t know what to say — I’m just happy, and I have been since the moment I met her. What we have is very special.” Playboy then goes on to say: “With Holmes by his side, Cruise tells us he’s learned to ignore the naysayers. ‘I’d rather spend this time with my kids and my wife, at home or on our movies, creating a life together.’” Which is just SO typical. This is the type of Hollywood crap that drives me CRAZY. Why spend all that effort lying and spin-doctoring something THE SAME MONTH that you are going to announce your separation? We’ve seen it with J-Lo, Jennifer Anniston, Will Smith – why why WHY? OBVIOUSLY their marriage contract was up. She’d put in her five years and was opting out. It couldn’t have been a surprise. WHY would he continue to blither on about how in love they still were? Was it to make him look like she blindsided him? That he’s the victim here? Is he that diabolical? Yuck, yuck, yuck.
When Marc Anthony filed for divorce from Jennifer Lopez two days ago, we were all sitting there scratching our heads (well those of us who care, anyway) thinking, isn’t this old news? Apparently, Marc was hoping for a reconciliation which was the reason for the delay in the filing, but Jen shut his ass down because she is “madly in love” with her current boyfriend, 24-year-old Casper Smart. Her words, not mine.
