Oh, hell to the yes, it’s a divorce

Angela Gheorghiu wishes to emphasize that she has been separated from Roberto Alagna for the last two years. Her attempts to save the marriage in this period failed. Having initiated divorce proceedings months ago, she awaits the finalisation of their divorce as soon as possible. Ms. Gheorghiu understands that Mr. Alagna is bitter about this situation. As for her part, contrary to his declarations, she would like to live her life now with peace and tranquillity.

Opera Chic caught this one first and best, but La Cieca will do her best take the low road here by pointing out that the meltdown of the Alagnas’ marriage is yet other failure of Rudy Giuliani‘s disastrous incumbency in New York City.
