After being publicly throttled by her husband of 10 years, Charles Saatchi, a “broken and desolate” Nigella Lawson is rumored to be contemplating divorce.

The U.K.’s Mirror claims that she has stopped wearing her wedding ring and that her career could suffer if she’s seen as at once a person who is a “domestic goddess” but also tolerates spousal abuse. Then there’s the fact that none of her besties can stand the guy.

“Not many of Nigella’s friends like him but they tolerate him,” a source told the paper. “He’s old fashioned.”

Well, yes, putting your hands around your wife’s neck during an argument is indeed démodé.
