Celebrity chef and author Nigella Lawson and her husband, global advertising executive and art collector Charles Saatchi, are officially divorced.
And it happened in record time – at a 70-second hearing Wednesday, according to the U.K.'s The Guardian.
The official end of their marriage comes just seven weeks after shocking photos were published of Saatchi with his hands around Lawson's neck as they apparently argued inside a London restaurant.

Teresa Giudice and her husband Giuseppe "Joe" Giudice were released on $500,000 bond each after making initial court appearances on Tuesday in Newark, N.J., to face federal fraud charges.
The stars of The Real Housewives of New Jersey were ordered to surrender their passports and to confine their travels to New Jersey and New York. Joe Giudice could be deported to Italy if convicted because he is not a U.S. citizen.
They did not enter pleas.

When they invited PEOPLE into their Manhattan home last summer – their first interview since he resigned from Congress amid scandal – Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin (joined by baby son Jordan) were the picture of a family tested, but healed and happy again, with Anthony's sexting habit kicked.
Now, he tells a very different version of What I Did Last Summer, calling it "a rough time in our marriage." (Asked Wednesday at a campaign event whether he'd been dishonest, Weiner said, "Look, I was going through some things personally – family-wise – and trying to be honest about it, about where we were at the time. But this thing, you know, was still there.")
Here, PEOPLE offers previously unpublished and expansive excerpts from that 2012 interview to shed new light on what Weiner and Abedin are saying now.

Geraldo Rivera, 70, just wanted to show the world he's as fit as ever.
But after the Geraldo at Large host showed off his physique Saturday in a risqué selfie on Twitter that just barely covered his private parts, his daughter and his network, Fox News, were not too happy.
Blaming tequila, which he says he usually doesn't drink, Rivera explained on Monday to New York's 95.5 PLJ Radio that he'd taken the photo earlier in the day and when he got home from a late night at work, "I had a couple of drinks ... It was 2:30 and I was like, 'Dammit, I like that picture.' I learned how to use Twitter a couple weeks ago and there I was. What a great idea."

As new revelations about her husband's indiscretions emerge, Huma Abedin, wife of New York City mayoral candidate and former U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner, says she believes his heart has truly changed as he tries to re-enter political life after a sexting scandal two years ago.
"When people tell me they're surprised to see me out on the campaign trail, I understand because, trust me, no one is more surprised than I am," Abedin, 37, writes in September's Harper's Bazaar (on newsstands Aug. 20).
"So why am I doing this? Because Anthony has always been a smart, caring and dedicated person, and while he's the same public servant who wants what's best for the people he represents, he is now something else – a better man."

"I love him. I have forgiven him. And as we have said from the beginning, we are moving forward," said Abedin, a longtime adviser to former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Mystery solved – and Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling is none too pleased.
In yet another surprising twist to a true-life tale that's becoming as fanciful as her work, Rowling's own law firm admitted that one of its partners leaked the information as to the true authorship of The Cuckoo's Calling, a critically acclaimed debut detective novel credited to Robert Galbraith but, in fact, written by Rowling.
In a statement released Thursday through Rowling's publicist, the author says, "A tiny number of people knew my pseudonym and it has not been pleasant to wonder for days how a woman whom I had never heard of prior to Sunday night could have found out something that many of my oldest friends did not know."

"I think coming on something light and fun would be something good for her," Burke adds.
