    what the hell happened to their marriage…let me guess…Daniel has fallen in love with a much younger woman!

  2. What the.... says

    The thing that gets me is this – if she filed for divorce at 3 months pregnant, how happened in those 3 months that it got so bad?

    Kelly Rutherford always looks so dried up and old to me in comparison to other women her age, i.e, Julia Roberts, Salma Hayak, Halle Berry, and several others. She has a very odd shaped mouth and is just strange, she doesn’t seem to really “fit’ into Hollywood and is a mediocre actress… weird divorce case and even stranger people. Pity their kids.

  4. Lauren says

    After all the fighting & press statements, they decided on joint custody. Wow….how immature. Act like the parents that your children deserve.

    Together as friends?!………they are not “friends”. And the above is NOT a current picture lol

    I wish these 2 could have reconciled. It seems like such a waste and such an awkward situation for 2 young babies.

  7. Aimee says

    Only 2 years of marriage? What is wrong with Hollywood marriage’s this day in age? 2 years isn’t even very long and these two look so adorable together! They actually look really cute together…so sad that he had to be a creep and their marriage went so sour!

    Tam …. I doubt she uses formula since she recently said she was still breast feeding the 3-year-old!!

    I think it’s ironically funny that after all that mud slinging, they ended up with joint custody, which is the same result they would have ended up with if they acted like adults!

  9. Terri says

    How can she share joint physical custody while the children are still nursing? Her daughter is only a couple months old.
