Well, Huma Abedin finally did it. After yet another sexting scandal by her husband, Anthony Weiner, was uncovered by The New York Post yesterday, Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton, announced today that she was separating from her husband. And we say: You go, girl! About damn time! But it also got us thinking of some other women who should ditch their men--not necessarily because these men have been sexting busty brunettes while their kids were in the same bed with them, but simply because these women are fantastic and their chosen men are significantly less so. Here they are; see if you agree!
Sarah Shahi She is one of the hottest women who ever lived. Her personality seems pretty rad, too. So why is she married to the goofy dude from Reba? (Side note: Good on you, Steve Howey.)
Adriana Lima The Brazilian supermodel is another candidate for the “one of the hottest women who ever lived” designation. And her husband for five years was… Marko Jarić, a former NBA bottom feeder. With strange eyes. But hey, whatever made you happy, Adriana. Thankfully she is now reportedly dating Patriots receiver Julian Edelman. That's a little better.
Meagan Good We’re probably just jealous. But we think this Deception babe—who was also amazingly sexy in Californication—could’ve set her sights higher than DeVon Franklin. Yes, he’s a handsome vice president at Columbia Pictures. But still.
Cynthia Nixon In 2012, the Sex and the City actress married her longtime girlfriend, Christine Marinoni, a kinda-chubby education activist. Hey, lesbians can date down too.
Christina Hendricks The woman you know as Joan Harris is married to Geoffrey Arend, that Jeff Goldblum-type from movies like Super Troopers. It’s not so much that she can do better, it’s just not who’d you expect. He’s a long way from John Slattery, put it that way.
Jessica Alba Alba is one of the most beautiful women in the world. Her husband, Cash Warren, was the director’s assistant on Fantastic Four and has produced a few things you’ve never heard of. Something's not right here.
Amanda Marcum This stunning ex-model is married to Andy Enfield, who was the basketball coach at Florida Gulf Coast until a few years ago (and now coaches USC). Even Enfield admits his snagging of Marcum was a bigger upset than his former team’s win over Georgetown.
Keira Knightley Her films have grossed over a gazillion dollars at the box office. She’s married to a bloke named James Righton, who was the keyboard player for the Brit rock band Klaxons. We repeat: Klaxons.
Alicia Keys Really, Alicia? Swizz Beatz? Her husband sounds like something you stir drinks with.
Anne Hathaway The Oscar-winning actress is married to a dude named Adam Shulman, an actor/jewelry designer. His IMDB credits are, umm, thin. But at least he didn't go to prison, like her ex-boyfriend Raffaello Follieri!
Beyonce Just kidding, Jay Z!
