Sometimes, the not-so-glamorous side of one’s life is showcased and talked about more than their positive, beautiful moments. And when it comes to divorce, especially if you’re a celebrity, get ready to be eaten alive by the tabloids!

Below are five women who had a rise in fame after they dropped the ax on their marriage by getting a celebrity divorce.

1. Camille Grammer: The famous ex-celebrity wife of Kelsey Grammer became even more famous when the couple went through an ugly celebrity break-up in 2011 after 14 years of marriage. While her celebrity divorce was being finalized from Kelsey, Camille signed on to the reality show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

2. Katie Holmes: While Katie had a great run on Dawson’s Creek from 1998-2003, the actress didn’t get a lot of attention until she surprised Tom Cruise with celebrity divorce papers in 2012. Since that time, Katie’s been scouted for multiple film roles and received copious amounts of attention from the paparazzi.

3. Heather Mills: This celebrity wife was only married to Beatles front man, Paul McCartney, for four years. But, she turned heads after her split from Sir Paul because she claimed that he was ‘abusive,’ ‘a drug taker,’ and more. McCartney was also forced to give Heather $46.6 million after their split.

4. Elin Nordegren: Since her crazy divorce from Tiger Woods in 2010, every newspaper wants to know how she’s moved on, if she forgives Tiger, and what she’s been up to. Prior to the cheating scandal involving Woods, not many people could recall the name Elin Nordegren.

5. Ivana Trump: Soon after her divorce from Donald Trump in 1992, Ivana started making a name for herself. Since that time, Ivana signed on with William Morris Agency and developed lines of clothing, fashion jewelry, and beauty products. She has also written several books and starred in her own reality television show.
