Author and "Law & Order" actress Isabel Gillies was a happily married new mom when her husband broke the news that he was in love with someone else. While many women might start plotting revenge and cut the former partner out of their life, Isabel took a different approach: She became friends with her ex and his new partner. "I think what people miss is that you just have to deal with the truth of what's going on," Isabel says. "Once you accept that your life is what it is, it becomes easier." After Isabel came to terms with her husband leaving, she realized that she had a big choice to make. "We're either going to hate each other and not be friends, or we're going to try to be friends." For the sake of the children, she quickly realized friendship was the only option. "Divorce is way too hard for children," she says. "Your whole job has to be making it better for them, and the best way to do that is communicating well. You sort of just have to say, 'Get over it.'" Being friends with her ex-husband also meant being on good terms with her ex's new spouse and turning a negative memory into a positive outlook. "My ex-husband's new spouse is French," Isabel says. "So either I can get pissed off about that, or I can say, 'Hey, maybe my kids can learn French.'" Above all, Isabel stresses the importance of letting go of blame. "If you hold on to the wrong that happened to you, that's all that you're left with." To hear Isabel's tip for negotiating kids' schedules without going crazy, check out this episode of "Daily Shot."
