It's hard to imagine Melissa Gilbert doing anything but the cha-cha-cha or the waltz on Dancing With The Stars

But, in a refreshingly candid interview with Celebuzz, the former Little House on the Prairie star revealed that her divorce left her incapacitated for the last few months, before taking to the dance floor.

The 47-year-old, who's currently paired with Maksim Chmerkovskiy on DWTS, split with Babylon 5 hubby Bruce Boxleitner last August after sixteen years of marriage.
“I couldn’t have done this show while I was going through my separation and the throes of the divorce,” Melissa confessed to Celebuzz. “I could barely leave the house."
"Now things are good," she added.
"We’re trying really hard to keep things as peaceful and co-operative as we can. It’s not been easy and we’ve both had our moments.
"It’s been hard on the kids and that’s been hard to watch but ultimately everyone’s going to be fine. Everything takes time."
Melissa's hunky new Parisian boyfriend, Thierry Gauchet, is surely helping her overcome the pain.

“He came to visit for three weeks. Right now he’s driving my Mustang through the desert. The relationship is brand new. I’m trying not to have any expectations. I’m just cross-eyed!”

    Even if you are guilty of wrongdoing, and you know it, you can still benefit from legal help. Often the charges are inflated over the facts involved in the case. People are strongly fearful of this particular crime, and as a result the court system tends to make more out of what you have done than what is warranted. Your lawyer will help bring the charges down to a more reasonable level, so you can benefit from his services to protect your liberty after your alleged crime.

    Thefts of identities are becoming more and more common as the Internet gradually becomes engrained in our society. However, the fact that this crime is very common does not make it less serious in the eyes of the courts. Cyber crimes, including these types of thefts of personal information, leave a nasty trail behind, making it harder for attorneys to fight for their clients in these cases. This is why it is so vital to have one who understands the nature of the crime as well as the laws that surround computer crimes.
