Another Nasty Divorce

I think it was probably assumed when Kate Walsh announced that she was getting a divorce from her husband of 15 months, Alex Young, that it would be a quick thing and really not much would be heard of it again. Really, they were married for about 5 seconds and so really, how messy could it get? Apparently, very messy when one person decides that they just can’t get over their own damn pride. Such is the case with Kate Walsh. Maybe it’s because there were rumors that she was spending too much time with her costar David Sutcliffe and Kate didn’t like the insinuation but she has now counter-filed for divorce. Which is pretty much saying, “You can’t divorce me, I’m divorcing you!” Which is so mature. She also may have been much unhappier in the marriage than it was originally thought. Apparently she did a pretty good job of putting on a show as the happy housewife. From Celebitchy,

“Getting dumped was the best thing that ever happened to Kate Walsh! Less than two weeks after her husband, Alex Young, filed for divorce, Kate couldn’t be happier.

“She feels like a major weight has been lifted from her back,” a source tells Star. Instead of moping around in her fuzzy pajamas, the Private Practice star has spent time buying flowers, redecorating, planning a vacation and generally acting like a fabulous single woman.

“Kate never wanted to get married,” a source reveals. “She just felt she had to because she turned 40 and her family was pressuring her.”

After a whirlwind seven-month courtship, Kate, 41, married 20th Century Fox exec Alex Young, 38, in September 2007. But their romance quickly soured.

Kate regretted the marriage, but she smiled for the cameras. “Alex was too controlling,” the source adds. “He wanted her to be a perfect little Martha Stewart wife, but she’s not like that. After a few months, she started thinking, ‘What have I gotten myself into?’”

I don’t really blame Kate for having her marriage turn out to be something completely different than what she thought it would be. That happens. But it’s also more likely to happen if you marry someone 7 months after knowing them. I also think there’s a huge issue that needs to be addressed if a 40-year-old woman can get married because she’s feeling pressured. I don’t care who she’s feeling it from, she’s 40 for cryin out loud! It really makes her sound sort of pathetic.
