So for all of you women reading this, especially those that are going through a breakup, put the tub of Ben and Jerry’s down and go for a run…After you finish reading the article, that is!
15. Evan Rachel Wood
Evan Rachel Wood is a beautiful and talented actress who made a mark on the industry in 2003 when she starred in the controversially brilliant film Thirteen. Since then Rachel Wood has appeared in a lot of other critically acclaimed movies like Across the Universe, The Wrestler and Into the Forest. The 28-year old has a classic beautiful look to her, not to mention carrying that sense of innocence that is so desirable. However, as we all know, looks can sometimes be deceiving.
The blonde bombshell was engaged to marry Marilyn Manson, legendary gothic rock star. A lot of people had some pretty harsh opinions about their relationship and Rachel Wood was even quoted saying that “people were pretty mean.” Their relationship sadly did not last, however, we at TheRichest think that Manson’s edge rubbed off on her a bit because she hit the single scene looking better than ever after the split. After their relationship ended, Wood found herself rekindling an old relationship with English actor Jamie Bell, the two even got married.
14. Olivia Wilde
Olivia Wilde is one of those women that every man wants to sleep with and every woman wants to look like. The actress is best known for her roles in the television shows House and Vinyl as well as the movies Drinking Buddies and Tron: Legacy. Most people know that Wilde is currently married to the hilarious and talented actor Jason Sudeikis, who she also has a child with. However, before this vixen found her soulmate, she was married to model Tao Ruspoli.
After the divorce, Wilde decided to change her look up a bit by turning herself into a brunette. She also changed up her style which gave her a confidence she never possessed before the divorce. It is no surprise that Sudeikis fell in love with his now wife. Not only is she incredibly talented, she is also one of the sexiest and most confident women on the planet which she kind of owes to her divorce!
13. Elisabeth Moss
Elisabeth Moss is one of the most adorable faces in the industry. Best known for being one of the stars of the hit television show Mad Men, Moss is an undeniable talent. In 2009, the 34-year-old actress married SNL and Portlandia star, Fred Armisen. Although fans thought this was a match made in heaven, only 8 months later, she and Armisen called it quits in a very public way. Rumor is that Armisen had been having an affair with his SNL co-star Abby Elliot, who is currently on the show Odd Mom Out. After the pair split, Armisen and Elliot began to publicly date. Moss has said many things about her marriage including calling it “extremely traumatic, awful and terrible.” But to her credit, Moss has been showing up on the red carpet looking better than ever since her split. She is wearing a lot more form fitting dresses allowing the world to take notice of her incredible body. She also changed her hair after the split, going for a darker, more seductive look, which suited her immensely.
12. Eva Longoria
Eva Longoria is one of those women who has always looked amazing. She is without a doubt one of the sexiest women on the planet, which is why it came as a shock to everybody that she got cheated on by her then-husband, professional basketball player Tony Parker.
Parker was busted texting his former teammate’s wife, who was one of Longoria’s good friends. She blindsided her then-husband by filing for divorce without him knowing, which as you can imagine, created a huge uproar throughout the media.
Longoria figured the best way to get revenge on the bastard was to look hotter than ever, which she did. She appeared on every red carpet event looking perfectly on point and she also exuded happiness, which every man finds sexy. Longoria even said, “I’m just in a happy place in my life that it’s easy to be open and in love because I am in a complete place in my life.”
11. Hilary Duff
We are sure a lot of our viewers remember Hilary Duff from when she was a just a child starring in the show Lizzie McGuire. Duff grew up in the public eye and always remained composed and classy, aware that she was a role model to many.
Hilary Duff is now not only a mother, but she is a divorcee. In 2010, Duff married NHL hunk Mike Comrie. Together, the couple welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world who is now 4 years old. Sadly, six years after they said “I do” the couple decided to call it quits.
Duff, whose main focus was being a wife and mother, was without a doubt devastated by the split. However, instead of sulking in her sorrows, Duff decided to get back to the single life looking better than ever. It is safe to say that motherhood mixed in with divorce did Hilary Duff some good because she is seriously killing it right now.
10. Katy Perry
It is no secret that Katy Perry and Russell Brand had a very short, very dysfunctional marriage. The couple married in 2010 and on the outside they seemed like a quirky and loving couple who were crazy about one another. However, you never know what is happening in a relationship unless you are part of it.
Perry, who claims her ex-husband ended their marriage over a text message, has said that at first she was a mess but with time she began to visibly come out on top. After the first stage of grief was over, Perry was featured on the cover of Vogue, looking more stunning than ever. That photo shoot set the tone for the rest of her healing process and she began appearing at events in some of the most incredible outfits looking like the star that she is. Perry, who is now dating Orlando Bloom looks and seems happier than ever, showing that sometimes letting go is the best thing to do.
9. Kim Kardashian
It is almost as if every time Kim Kardashian gets divorced, she gets hotter. Kardashian was first married to songwriter Damon Thomas. The pair got married in 2000 and called in quits in 2004. A few short years after that, Kardashian’s name started to become increasingly popular and she began looking better and better. Then, in 2011, she had an over the top, lavish, television wedding to professional basketball player Kris Humphries, but the marriage fell apart quickly.
Kardashian walked away from the divorce with more money and more confidence than she ever had before. Kardashian is continuously looking better and we at TheRichest are convinced that her divorce history may play a part in that. Now she is married to Kanye West and together they have two beautiful children. We can only hope for Kim that the third time is the charm!
8. Courteney Cox
In 1999, Courteney Cox married fellow actor David Arquette. For years, they were known as one of show business’s most solid couples. However, in 2013, they announced that they were getting a divorce. The news saddened a lot of fans as well as a lot of their peers. Cox, who had not been single in over a decade, took the divorce for face value. Although the pair has remained quite close, Cox got revenge on her ex-hubby by simply looking incredible, even better than when they were married. She looked so good that she attracted another man, Irish musician Johnny McDaid, who she was reportedly engaged to. Sadly, the relationship recently ended, but fans are not worried about Cox because we all know she will come out of the breakup looking hotter than she ever has before. We at TheRichest can’t wait to see who Cox’s next man will be!
7. Sandra Bullock
Sandra Bullock is one of America’s most cherished celebrities. The Academy Award winning actress went through an extremely public divorce when then-husband Jesse James was cheating on her with multiple women, all of whom sold their stories to the media.
Instead of getting down in the dumps, this fiercely talented actress used this pain and channeled it into herself and her son, Louis. Since the divorce, Bullock is looking hotter than she ever has before. Her body looks incredible and she does not seem to have aged at all in the last ten years. In an interview with Vogue Bullock stated “You can’t go backward. I’m not going backward. I’m grateful that I’m here, blessed to have what I have. Nobody can be prepared for anything.”
Her positive outlook in combination with her inner and outer beauty are just some of the reasons why Sandra Bullock is so loved all over the world. This class act deserves a man that will appreciate her, not cheat on her.
6. Reese Witherspoon
Reese Witherspoon is one of the most adorable actresses in the industry. Her cheeky personality mixed with her enormous amount of talent is part of why she has found so much success in her career.
In 1999, the Academy Award winning actress married Cruel Intentions co-star Ryan Phillippe. The couple seemed like they had it all, however, after almost 8 years of marriage, the couple called it quits. The reason for the split was because Phillippe had not been faithful.
Witherspoon was reportedly devastated by this but instead of throwing herself a pity party, she decided to focus on getting her revenge by looking the best she could possibly look. She focused on her style, getting into shape and finding herself after the divorce. In 2011, Witherspoon found love again and said “I do” to talent agent Jim Toth and together they welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world.
5. Jennifer Aniston
Although everything seemed perfect on the outside, in 2005 the couple called it quits. Pitt, who left Aniston for his now wife Angelina Jolie, had apparently been having an affair. Aniston, who was devastated by the divorce decided that she was not going to let this incident define her.
Aniston took her anger and put it into the gym perfecting her body, which she did. Aniston knew that all eyes were on her throughout this time so she took the opportunity to look more fierce than ever before. Although Aniston is now married, there is still a part in all of us that think maybe one day, Jen and Pitt will find each other again.
4. Kris Jenner
Kris Jenner is one of the most famous mothers on the planet. The mother of six has been married twice, and sadly, divorced twice. Not only did Kris Jenner recently go through a public divorce, she also had to go through her ex-husband publicly coming out as a woman to the world.
Kris Jenner married Caitlyn Jenner (formerly known as Bruce) in 1991. The couple shared many happy years together and brought into the world two beautiful daughters Kylie and Kendall. However, their marriage was far from perfect for many reasons.
Kris Jenner channeled her pain and her heartbreak into her job and of course into herself. It is hard to be single at any age, but being a single grandparent must be extremely difficult. Good thing Jenner has been looking as good as she has, or else she would have probably never found another man.
3. Britney Spears
Britney Spears is a pop icon. Her rise to fame was very quick and it seemed like overnight the teenager became a world renowned superstar. Spears, who has had some publicly humiliating experiences has also gone through two public divorces. The first divorce was to Jason Allen Alexander and it was silly. The marriage did not last a year which did not come as a big surprise. Later that year Spears married again but this time, she married dancer Kevin Federline.
Spears and Federline seemed to have had an extremely passionate relationship, however it also seemed to be a bit volatile. In 2007, the couple split and Spears went through a bit of a rough patch. But our girl Spears came out of the divorce ultimately “stronger than yesterday” looking hotter than she did in the hit me one more time music video. Spears came back with a vengeance and is still looking like a million bucks.
2. Katie Holmes
Katie Holmes won over the hearts of her fans years ago when she was on the show Dawson’s Creek. The actress grew up admiring Tom Cruise from afar, which is why when he began to pursue her she immediately fell in love with him.
In 2006, the couple got married and later brought a beautiful daughter into the world. But in 2012, the couple went through a pretty high profile divorce. The reason for Holmes leaving the actor was that she claims to have been protecting their daughter Suri from Cruise’s religion of Scientology.
Katie Holmes handled the divorce with an extreme amount of grace and class. She also began putting herself together again and started to look like Katie Holmes for the first time in a long time.
Holmes has been linked to some pretty sexy men since the divorce including actor Jamie Foxx. These men are probably after her because she is looking so damn good, everyone wants a piece.
1. Khloe Kardashian
Khloe Kardashian has official reinvented the term “revenge body.” Kardashian was always known as the “bigger” sister. Although she always had a beautiful body, she was never fully happy with the way she looked. Kardashian recently went through a fairly traumatic series of events, including a divorce from husband Lamar Odom.
Since the split, Kardashian has been turning heads everywhere she goes. She turned her pain into motivation to better herself and claims that working out has become a form of psychology for her. Kardashian has been very open about her weight loss and ever wrote the following in a Facebook post, “Looking back at pictures of myself I didn’t realize at the time how unhealthy my lifestyle actually was. People love to call me the fat one but as weird as it sounds I still don’t think I would consider myself fat back then. Definitely overweight and unhealthy, yes. About two years ago I decided to turn to fitness as a form of therapy and as a stress reliever. I started slow and eventually I started working out 4 to 5 days a week. We all have to start somewhere and doing something is better than nothing at all.”
We at TheRichest admire Kardashian’s motivation and work ethic, keep it up girl!
