Divorce Time - Jane Lynch And Rachel Uchitel But Not From Each Other

After just three years being married, Jane Lynch is divorcing her wife Lara Embry. It was Jane who released a statement and let everyone know what was going on before anyone caught wind of it. That would suggest to me that perhaps, Jane is dating someone else and it is going to be out there in the press.

Meanwhile, the hooker formerly known as Tiger Woods Mistress #1 would love a chance to be single again and to hook up with tons more married men. In this case, it was Rachel's husband that did the divorce filing citing cruel and inhumane treatment. Must have seen the videos of Tiger having sex with his wife while on Ambien.

What? This title makes no sense. Or perhaps I need to go back to sleep.

auntliddy said...

Style-and for a change, i got it!! Lol

auntliddy said...

Shame about jane. I thought she'd found her happily ever after.

Sad about Jane. Not shocked about Uchitel. She will be the ex wife from hell. He had better find a good lawyer for the long haul.

Cathy said...

Sad to hear about Jane - I hope this wasn't about her ego getting too big. Not surprising at all to hear about Rachel; I'm surprised her marriage lasted as long as it did. Is she still relevant enough to be the subject of blind items? If so, I'm sure there must be some recent ones out there about this...

libby said...

Who is Jane's new lady?! HOT!

Well...Not if she cheated. I hope Jane's not like that. I'll just assume they were already separated.
It could be someone from Broadway, someone she met there. But for gossip's sake, let it be someone famous!


You guys remember Uchitel's original 'claim to fame'? She was a 9/11 widow. Maybe just engaged to a guy that died, but her fame jumped off from her photo in a newspaper after 9/11.

Stylemaverick said...

Got it now. What a ridiculous way to begin the day. I can already tell that this is going to be a grumpy day. Better check my Cheerios for piss =\

Cathy said...

geez f281561 - you stole my words before i even hit the publish button!

Henriette said...

I hope Jane is not another Melissa Utheridge.

Oh happy day to be a lawyer..

Oh happy day to be a lawyer..

@Misch
Divorce lawyers were the biggest supporters of same-sex marriage; wonder why?

Renoblondee said...

Hate that for Jane. I've heard she's very down to earth and kind.

Yes, lawyers win again! 18 years, 18 years.

Ms Cool said...

Holy cow. I did not know about Rachel's past. I searched for a picture and found this horrifying article:

Henriette said...

Uchitel is a real piece of work.

libby said...

Thank you, Ms Cool. That's why I mentioned Uchitel's 9/11 connection. She was NOT so into the grieving, but she liked doing it for the cameras.

KittyKatMeow said...

There's videos?????

Cee Kay said...

I think I read that Jane and her wife had only known each other for about a year before they got married. That might be part of the problem right there. What's the rush, people? Anybody can be happy for a year! It's when real life sets in that things get tough, and couples just don't allow real life to intrude in that first flush of love.

Brooke said...

Rachel has every right to grieve in her own way. Unless anyone here has lost a fiancée the way she did - NO ONE has a right to judge how she goes through her own personal process. And unless you we're around her during 9/11, no one here had any right to speak about how she was "off-camera" in her grieving process. Just because she didn't act the way YOU think she should act as the grieving widow doesn't mean she's a piece of work. Jeez.

I would've thought better would come from you guys.

Susan said...

Jane & Dr. Lara were married too fast - "What does a lesbian bring on her 2nd date? A moving van." - to all you girl/girls out there, pump the brakes a little & slow down:)

Brooke said...

*were around her...

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

Well "Achele" sure seem to be taking their time. Sorry, I just found out about "Achele" (Dianna Agron + Lea Michele) being a "thing," so I had to share my newfound wisdom with you all. :) There is an *unbelievable* volume of discussion about "Achele" on the L-chat board. Right now, they're on page 420 of the 11th thread on this subject. ;)

libby said...

Not every true victim is a saint, or becomes one because of tragedy. Even assholes get widowed tragically.

timebob said...

agree with @libby and Rachel got into a fight with his parents on how his estate should be settled. She is a born opportunist. from wiki:

'Uchitel had been engaged to James Andrew O'Grady, an investment banker, who was killed in the September 11 attacks of the World Trade Center.[7][19] A few days later, she appeared on the front page of the New York Post holding a picture of O'Grady, which was republished worldwide.[6][20][21][22] Uchitel and her fiance's family subsequently debated the disposition of his estate.[19][23]'

I just feel sorry for the little girl born into the nightmare of these two.


Brooke said...

@timebob - I don't trust wiki. And just because she got into a fight with his family about his estate does not automatically make her an asshole. Maybe his parents contested the will where he left her everything and the parents didn't like that. Can you find the docs related to this lawsuit? Without seeing those, I'mnot putting my stock in a wiki article about her. Those things can be edited by anyone, anytime.

timebob said...

Yeah @Brooke i'll get right on that right after I wipe my ass with your post. Never said there was a lawsuit. She wanted his money and wasn't married to him. It wasn't hers to get. So her grieving needed financial compensation which is an asshole move. She also made some asshole comments 10 years later. Which isn't even worth quoting.

Brooke said...

No need to get nasty, now? Really?

Brooke said...

Actually, why am I surprised? That seems to be the status quo when there's a difference of opinions here, and when the different opinion come from someone not part of the "originals".

Anothergrayhare said...

Uchitel was/is a beautiful woman who decided to become the mistress of Tiger Woods and a high end hooker. I'm sure her late fiance would be so proud. And her words were not taken out of context, she just sounded really dumb. If she was smart she'd have kept her mouth shut and the 10 million Woods paid her to go away.

Brooke said...

And I'll base my opinion on someone who has actually met her, thanks. From another site:

My husband works with him. They call him Mr. Uchitel behind his back and he is not particularly well liked. I met them both at last year’s Holiday party and she seemed very nice and actually pretty normal, while he was the kind of guy who, when he’s talking to you, is actually looking right past you at the hot chick over by the bar.

Based on short acquaintance, I’m Team Uchitel, although not particularly proud of it.

Anothergrayhare said...

Yeah 'cause normal women become VIP escorts. Defensive much there Brooke dear?

timebob said...

@Brooke Have a difference of opinion all you want. Just don't dictate to me to fetch facts for you. That's a pretty asshole move.

Brooke said...

@timebob - I was not dictating you to fetch facts. Since you were the one linking the wiki page and the Jezebel article, I figured you also had info about the disagreement between her & his family about the money, like a link to thesmokinggun.com or something besides wiki to base that on. That is all. Just because you read it that way does not mean that was the attitude I had when I asked that question.

@Anothergrayhare - I never disputed what happened to her after her fiancée died. But the whole judging her behavior after she loses someone like that is what gets me. She has issues she needs to work out - trying to find her self-worth in the value other men place on her is not healthy, but we shouldn't call her an asshole for making those decisions. Calling her an asshole because she disputed how his money was distributed after her fiancée died without us having any documentation to what his real wishes may have been is a shitty thing to do. For all we know, they could have had joint accounts that his parents denied her access to. Without knowing all the details, calling her an asshole over things like this is dumb. THAT is what I was trying to point out, but again, since it's not what everyone else thinks, my comments are only good to wipe an ass with.

Anothergrayhare said...

I didn't say she was an asshole, another poster did. I also didn't say your comments were good to wipe my ass with. I simply thought you were a little overboard in your defense of her. From reading the links, I see she married someone else after 9/11, divorced after 4 months, then hooked up with Tiger Woods as his mistress. She has now married, had a child and is being divorced for being abusive or some such. We all make mistakes, she just seems to make very public ones.
As someone said, she was looking for rich husband. Guess she found one and it still didn't work out.

JoElla said...

Ya'll realize you are acting worse than my kids in the middle of summer right? ;)

Rox (used to be Roxxx) said...

@Timebob, Libby,
I'm of the same opinion, she seems pretty opportunistic and I think this is going to get a whole lot uglier; apparently the husband is trying to get custody of the daughter, or so I've read - don't know how accurate that is.

timebob said...

Just to clarify I wasn't disagreeing with you I was agreeing with Libby. You are the one that chimed in wanting facts & figures. So let's not play the victim card when I had never even addressed you originally.

Brooke said...

@anothergrayhare - You're right - you directly didn't say those things, other posters did. And I'll admit I have a soft spot for her because I've been in her type of situation, and honestly saw a lot of myself in her when I watched her on Celebrity Rehab. (hangs head in shame for admitting she watched Celebrity Rehab) I still feel that just because she made crappy choices, that doesn't make her the opportunistic villian everyone else seems to think she is. Because most of those choices were made when she was still grieving, and once the media realized they have a ready-made she-devil on their hands that would draw readers and revenue, she didn't have a chance.

@ timebob - And you are right as well - you never addressed me directly. But I did comment on yours, and I didn't think my comment was nasty enough to warrant the type of response I got. That's all.

readercomelately said...

I know Jane and she is lovely. Very down to earth and had a wonderful relationship with her wife's child. She was at every school event, volunteered her time at the school. Nice in every way. I am sad to hear about the divorce. Being divorced myself, I know that you can just never know what goes on between two people in a marriage. They can both be great people, just not great together.

L said...

Does anyone know what kind of behaviour and actions warrant a definition in court of "cruel and inhumane treatment"?
I cannot think of anything that would go on in a normal family.. any divorce lawyers around here that could give some examples? I am baffled

feraltart said...

L, I think withholding sex could count. I know that is the reason Billy Joel gave for divorcing Christie Brinkley, but I don't know if it was called the same thing.

just curious said...

Both marriages are living proof that wives are the reason for divorce.

Henriette said...

@Brook
I called Urtel (sp) a "piece of work," and I stand by my comment. As for judging, we judge people EVERY day! How do you think we put rapists and murders away? Do you think prosecutors go around saying, "oh that's there way of grieving." We judge behavior and her behavior has not been great. She knowingly dated a married man. Check. She publicly used her fiance's death in 9/11 for publicity. Check. Finds ways to keep that publicity. Check. Sorry, I don't see this women saving seals, children, puppies, or kittens.

You met her once and she was nice to you, so what? Ted Bundy was very charming and charismatic when he wasn't raping and murdering women. I know a lady who to this day can't believe what he went away for because she worked with him on a suicide prevention line.

I'm not saying Uritel (sp) is on those lines, but she obviously finds ways to garner publicity for herself and choices are not above board. As I originally said, "piece of work." If you want to interpret that as "asshole," please do so.

Henriette said...

It's meant to be possessive "their," but my tablet got goofy.

Rox (used to be Roxxx) said...

@Henriette: Well said.

taco said...

@Brooke...I get what you are saying and somewhat agree. I've been in similar shoes after a heartbreak. However, based on what the media has presented to us (which, of course, is ALWAYS objective and honest *sarcasm*), she does not seem to be the most likable person. I'll reserve my judgement unless she starts "pimping" out pics of her baby.

Almost everyone else....wow, being hostile towards someone for not agreeing with you is pretty juvenile. We all have opinions but there is no need to skewer someone who has a difference of opinion.

zeldafitzgerald said...

why is david boreaneaz tagged in this???

Brooke said...

Thanks taco. At least someone else notices the behavior here. And no, her baby is a year and a half and I've never seen a picture of her. Which is better than some of the A list celebrities out there. Maybe that game stopped once she became a mom - another reason to cut her some slack.

Henriette - I never said you personally called her an asshole, others did. Good God! My comments were not directed towards you - a piece of work is not an asshole.
