Isn’t divorce a grubby old process? As the Saatchi/Lawson court case continues and dirty washing is being aired in a way we never (previously) thought possible, I feel that perhaps we’ve all seen enough. Enough, enough, enough. And I don’t doubt that many of these endless ‘reports’ aren’t even true. When it comes down to it, I’d rather believe less of Saatchi’s accusations about the woman who taught me to eat straight from the larder (albeit mine is cupboard whereas hers is an entire room).

But another’s divorce details simply ARE grubby and awful and absolutely none of our business. And yet, whenever anyone gets divorced they over-share their grubbiness as if it’s hot gossip. I suppose they think that we really NEED to know what went on behind their closed doors, when we’d much rather they’d move on and leave us out of it. I’m certain that Charles must have at least a couple of friends he could rant to and, if not, I hear a therapist can work a treat. Nigella’s recreational habits are her business and after all, we should remind the media, it’s a couple of alleged fraudsters on trial not a marriage.

So, let’s not engage nor even twitch the net curtains. That way our domestic goddess might crack an egg and whip up a really good pudding.
