I know when my divorce was final… it was both a relief and the start of a new chapter, yet public “divorce parties?” Hmmm….We are embracing a new fad here. Buckle up ladies and gents… here we go!
When reality TV star Shanna Moakler got a divorce, she threw a party in Las Vegas. “Real Housewife” Sheree Whitfield had planned to celebrate a “Brand New Me.” Even “CSI: Miami” used a divorce party in an episode.
Others — celebs or not — are following suit.
Some wonder why anyone would celebrate what’s often a painful and messy event. Others say it’s an opportunity to find closure and to make the transition to the single life with the support of friends and family.
Wow… we both believe that closing a chapter is the start of a new one, yet “come on.” Is this the new trend we will all see in 2010-2011?
