The divorce was confirmed by Bushnell's representatives and papers were filed last Friday, according to The Daily Mail. Bushnell stated 'We had some wonderful times in our nine-year marriage, and I still care about Charles as a person. I respect his desire to pursue his own happiness and hope that we will continue to be friends in the future.'
After many years as a NYC singleton (as portrayed by Sarah Jessica Parker in the Sex and the City series) Bushnell found love and married Askegard on July 4, 2002. Trouble had apparently been brewing with the two for quite some time according to a friend who told the NY Post: 'This has been coming for a long time. They have been living increasingly separate lives. Candace has been spending more and more time in the country at her house in Connecticut, while Charles has been in the city working. He has been going through a huge career transition.'
We wonder if Carrie Bradshaw will follow suit in a dramatized 3rd movie installment of Sex and the City? Plot: Carrie files divorce from Big and goes to India to "find herself." In the end, she realizes that love is for suckers, buys 20 pairs of Manolo Blahnik's and drowns her sorrows in a sea of cosmopolitans while listening to Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" on repeat. Ugh, that sounds worse than the 2nd one.
Anyway, Candace is still pretty hot and ridiculously successful, so we're sure she'll be just fine.
