Phil's Finally Free; Phoenix Mayor's Divorce Final
In what might possibly go down as one of the most boring divorces in the history of marriage, Mayor Phil Gordon's divorce from now former wife Christa Clark Severns is now official.
No juicy gossip to report here -- the divorce was filed on March 30 of last year, the couple is reported to have worked out a custody agreement of their son, Jake, on their own, and the case sat basically stagnant until Tuesday, when family court Judge Robert Miles granted a consent decree.
Done and done.
"We've been separated for quite awhile and determined it is best to end the marriage," Severns told the Arizona Republic when the news of the divorce broke. "We care very much about each other and we will continue as good friends. We appreciate people's best wishes and understanding."
How much more un-Giuliani could it be?
Not to worry, the controversy surrounding the mayor's current flame is certain to make up for any drama lost as his previous nuptials have now come to a very anti-climactic end.
