Zooey: 'New Girl'!
Zooey Deschanel talks her new show.
Newly single Zooey Deschanel made one of her first public appearances since announcing her split from her indie rocker husband Ben Gibbard. 

The New Girl actress stepped out at the TV Guide Magazine’s Annual Hot List Party Monday night in a navy blue dress, glitter-gold heels and a bouffant hair ‘do but there was something missing… Zooey wasn’t wearing her wedding ring!

Just last week, Ben and Zooey confirmed to UsMagazine.com that after two years of marriage, they were separating.


The couple referred to the decision as “mutual and amicable,” adding that it was made entirely between the two of them and that there “was no third party involved” — ruling out any thoughts that perhaps infidelity played a role.

What do you think of Zooey stepping out sans wedding ring just one week after announcing her split? Is it too soon? Sound off in the comments!
