Following being snapped last month coming home from an island vacation, Demi Moore stepped out officially for the first time last night on the red carpet since leaving rehab to support her close friend, British TV host Amanda De Cadenet and the launching of her Lifetime interview show, The Conversation. Moore is an executive producer for the show.
The conversations that [Demi] and I have on a daily basis really reflect the questions on the show, De Cadenet told People Magazine. She was a great sounding board. The spirit of the show is about women supporting one another so [working with her] was great.
It has been a crazy few months for actress Demi Moore since announcing her separation from Ashton Kutcher. In November of 2011, Moore and Kutcher announced that they would be separating after reports came out that Kutcher had cheated on Moore with 22-year-old Sara Leal.
Following the separation Moore announced her intention to divorce Kutcher, but the next few months proved hard for Moore. She gave a revealing interview to Harper's Bazaar, appeared on the red carpet looking gaunt, was hospitalized after a bad reaction reportedly to whip-its and disappeared from the public for a few months to go to treatment.
A few days ago Moore made her return to Twitter, posting a picture of herself and contemplating a name change from the moniker, @mrsKutcher.
Time for a change, twitter name change... any suggestions?
News broke that Moore's husband at the time, Kutcher, had an affair with 22-year-old administrative assistant, Sara Leal on September 24, the day of his and Moore's six-year wedding anniversary. Moore stepped out later in the month for the New York City premiere of Margin Call looking thin.
He just came up and kissed me, Leal told Us Weekly Magazine. He lost his towel and I took my robe off. Then we had sex. He was good. It wasn't weird or perverted.
Moore announces that she is divorcing Kutcher.
It is with great sadness and a heavy heart, Moore said in a statement. As a woman, a mother and a wife, there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life.
I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi, Kutcher tweeted after the announcement was made. Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail.
Moore is hospitalized after a bad reaction from reportedly doing whip-its. She subsequently drops out of the Linda Lovelace movie, where she was going to make a cameo as Gloria Steinem, and is replaced by Sarah Jessica Parker.
Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health, Moore's rep told TMZ at the time. She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends.
Moore covered Harper's Bazaar magazine, where she got personal. The interview took place before her hospitilization.
On her body: I have had a love-hate relationship with my body, Moore told the magazine. When I'm at the greatest odds with my body, it's usually because I feel my body's betraying me, whether that's been in the past, struggling with my weight and feeling that I couldn't eat what I wanted to eat, or that I couldn't get my body to do what I wanted it to do.
On her fears: I used to think that what scared me was the idea of being abandoned until someone said to me, 'Only children can be abandoned. Adults can't be abandoned because we have a choice. Children don't have a choice.' So I started to rethink. 'Okay, it's not that. What's the underlying thread that really scares me?' I think what scares me is not having the courage to reach my full potential.
Pictures surfaced of Moore coming home from a vacation in Turks and Caicos. It was the first time Moore was seen after her hospitalization.
