Divorce Hollywood Style

"In Hollywood," Lauren Bacall once quipped, "an equitable divorce settlement means each party getting 50 per cent of the publicity."

The vast majority of news items that pop up each day under the heading of divorce have something to do with celebrity. Since this isn't a gossip column, I don't post them here, but the Bacall quote above was priceless, I thought, and worthy of inclusion. There's also a mention in this article of John Denver cutting his bed in half with a chainsaw in a bitter divorce. Wow, I didn't see that one coming when he was mildly crooning with the Muppets.

Lauren Bacall's most famous quote, of course, is: "You know how to whistle, don't you Steve? Just put your lips together and blow."
