New-comer Landon Clements, 33 joins Bravo’s Southern Charm fresh on the heels of a difficult divorce from old British Entrepeneur James Maby.
She is obviously having a tough time adjusting to the dissolution of her marriage and being single for the first time in 9 years. She offers some hints about her marriage to the wealthy CEO whom she lived with in Los Angeles California. She reveals that she led a very opulent lifestyle but felt very alone and “walk away from all of it”.
I am thinking Landon signed a pre-nup because it does not appear that she is walking away with much. And it sounds like her mother Cynthia Bankhead had a hard time accepting her decision. Bravo recently interviewed her about her mother’s feelings on the divorce:
“Bravotv.com: Has your mother come around at all about your decision to get a divorce?”
“LC: She has come around 100 percent. Her words of encouragement to hang in there had come from a few long-distance phone calls. Of course, you’re going to say try harder when you aren’t there to see the real situation. When we finally came face to face, she could see that I was broken by life. It was then that she slowly began to change her tune.”
Landon goes on to reveal that her husband may have had some unhealthy behaviors that led to the break-up….
“Also, my ex-husband’s behavior during this time became quite erratic, and she finally got a glimpse of what I had secretly been dealing with. I am a very private person when it comes to my emotions, and I think if I had been able to be more honest with myself, I could have been more honest with her.”
” I, too, wanted to maintain the facade that everything was fine, but it was literally killing me. At one point, I got down to 95 pounds (I’m 5’9″ so that’s not great), and my hair started falling out from the stress. I had an amazing therapist, and he really helped me to find some clarity and to harness my own strength to remove myself from a dark place.”
Wow! So it sounds like it wasn’t exactly an amicable split and it sounds like James Maby may have been quite a situation to deal with. I am guessing there was some bipolar disorder which resulted in a rather abusive relationship.
