Divorce DVD Release: Sarah Jessica Parker Returns to HBO in Exceptional Form

I created BelAirMommie in the mind sent of sharing my experience regarding co-parenting, that no matter how ugly a separation got, the magnitude of the volatility is controlled by you, meaning you are in control of your reaction and how you choose to process what’s occurring, ‘You need to love your child more than you hate your ex.” When Divorce was aired, I first thought they would sugar coat the show, make it “divorce” friendly however as episodes passed and situations were strained I was incredibly grateful to HBO, the creators, and talent that they portrayed what “divorce” really is, messy, ugly and complicated. Now don’t get me wrong, I do believe after some time has passed that said parents will and should be able to get along due to the fact that times heals some wounds. But when you're in the thick of things, our judgment becomes askew and it’s important to have a few good friends to talk too. Divorce might not be all rays and sunshine but the show brings to light circumstance that is real and how it should be handled.

Sarah Jessica Parker helped cement the HBO reputation, especially being the go-to person to make any show a hit! Sarah plays Frances, a woman in upstate New York with a husband, two kids, and a failing marriage. Parkers co-star Thomas Haden Church is unique, comical and has nailed the jilted soon to be ex-husband perfectly. Parkers closest friend is Molly Shannon who plays Diane, she’s married to Nick played by Tracy Letts. Diane and Nick's relationship is complicated but because of their issues, they learn to value each other. The show is amazing, I’m so glad they were picked up for season 2. The show deals with real life issues that present solutions, so if you’re going thru a breakup or want to learn how to handle a moment that has risen, this is the show to watch. If you’ve missed any shows make sure to pick up the DVD collection that’s out today!

~Raising two children together and sharing more than 10 years of marriage have taken a toll on Frances, who is suddenly reevaluating her life and the strained relationship she has with her husband, Robert. Friends like Diane, who is successful and has no children, and Dallas, who has been both widowed and divorced, make Frances wonder what she's missed, or is missing. But she soon discovers that making a clean break and starting anew is harder than she thought. "Divorce," a comedy series co-executive produced and starring Sarah Jessica Parker as Frances, follows a middle-aged couple living in the suburbs of New York City as they grapple with the effects of their failing marriage, not just on themselves, but also on their children and friends, ranging from awkward public encounters to difficult private therapy sessions.
