    that is always a difficult time especially if young children are involved too. Just about 2 months ago or so, it was announced she and her race car driver husband are divorcing.  Divorce is always an emotionally tough time. I do not know if they had kids, I thought they did? But it is always tough for the people involved and even harder for the kids.

      scrutiny. Her entire life was being prepped for exposure I'm sure. Every gritty detail that may exist, McConnell has the clout to make sure they would be exhumed. With her career in Hollywood she is surely only one or two degrees away from someone or something potentially scandalous. I think it was crazy brave of her to consider running to begin with.

      She doesn't have any. That's why I scratched my head when she expressed a need to focus on her family. Uh, Ashley, you don't have one.

      My suspicion is she decided that she wasn't ready to give up her acting career. I say, take out Rand Paul in 2016, Ashley.

        issues.I recall Naomi basically retired from the music business due to serious heatlh issues, I believe she has a chronic illness.  Her entire family would have their lives scrutinized including her sister who has battled addiction and other issues.
