So you’ve just announced that you’re getting a divorce, the reasonable thing to do is divvy up your belongings and kids and, per usual, make your husband look for a bachelor pad not too far away so he can see the children on weekends and every other Martin Luther King Day. Kate Winslet, however, is not keen to keep the family home she and hubby Sam Mendes shared for five years.
A source told Page Six that Winslet can’t wait to leave the $6 million triplex located in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood fast enough. “Kate really wants to leave the apartment. She sees it as a house of horrors because of the fights she and Sam had there. She feels it is tainted,” the source said. Well, if no one is currently occupying the horrific-sounding manse, we will gladly volunteer to stay there until its aura is cleansed and a new owner is found. Both Winslet and Mendes are currently living and working in New York, which means she’s probably going to be calling on a Man With A Van pretty soon to help her schlep her literal and metaphorical baggage to a new pad.
