Bianca Kajlich: Landon Donovan Divorce Gives Us All Hope Once Again

1 of 10

    Well this one has gone official: LeBron James might not go down as the most sought after free agent of 2010 after all.

    After being separated for a year, American soccer icon Landon Donovan has filed for divorce to put an official end to his four-year ongoing relationship with actress Bianca Kajlich.

    The 33-year-old actress has stared in numerous TV shows and movies throughout her career, and is most well known for her current role as Jennifer on the hit CBS series, Rules of Engagement.

    There was speculation that the two might get back together, but those rumors proved to be untrue as Kajlich has officially hit the open market. It took a lot of money, nice weather, and two other superstars to sell LeBron on South Beach. What's it going to take to sell Kajlich?

    I'll break down their divorce and go through some of the reasons why Kajlich would certainly make a great catch.

The Rumors Were False

    It was reported that the couple split up in 2009 and then rumors began to spread like wild fire that Donovan and Kajlich were getting back to together after he apparently blew her a kiss after scoring the game winning goal against Algeria during the World Cup.

    That wasn't the end of it though as shortly after, more rumors surfaced that Donovan was fathering a British child and Kajlich was unaware of the situation. Donovan later put an end to those rumors during an interview at the ESPY awards in Los Angeles.

    Non the less, the papers have been filed, and why this former couple did vow to stay friends, Kajlich is now fair game gentlemen.

Why The Divorice

    With the pair having previously separated in 2009, apparently it was just the right time.

    Donovan cited irreconcilable differences in the divorce petition and officially signed off on the papers on Tuesday. He is also apparently seeking spousal support and legal fees from Kajlich. The two American celebrity icons do not have any children together.

Top Quotes

    With any celebrity divorce comes gossip as well as some actual factual news about why the couple decided to split. But all journalists know that while you can make up gossip (If you write for the likes of Star Magazine), you can not make up quotes.

    Here is a look at some of the top quotes that have surfaced from this divorce.

    When asked about where their relationship goes from here: "We remain the closest of friends and will always be important parts of each others lives," the former couple said in a joint statement.

    When rumors surfaced about Donovan fathering a love child in the UK while he was playing there on loan for Everton: "I will not be a Dad any time soon, which is good news for me.'"

    About blowing Kajlich a kiss after scoring the game winning goal in the 2010 World Cup match against Algeria:  “People who know me close know how much she’s meant to this whole process. “I wouldn't be where I was on that day without her. I wanted to share that moment with her,” he added, “which was really special.”

And The Bidding Begins

    LeBron James, Amare Stoudemire, Carl Crawford, Cliff Lee. These are just a few names of the top free agents to sign huge contracts this past year.

    But now after this divorce, Kajlich should rival all of those names in the most desirable free agents to hit the open market in 2010.

    So, now that Kajlich is officially a top-prized free agent, lets break down the top-5 reasons why we would all want to date her.

5. She's a Maxim Girl

    For any guy that doesn't know about Maxim magazine, first of all, check your manhood, second, it is one of the worlds most popular magazines, which features some of the hottest actresses, singers and female models in the business.

    Kajlich has been a mainstay in Maxim's "Hot 100", ranking #74 in 2004 and moving up to #63 in 2007. Not only will you reap all the benefits of having a girlfriend associated with the magazine, but who wouldn't want to show off their lady in one of the most well-known magazines around today.

4. It's All In The Family

    If you are a half-way descent looking individual who wants to have good looking kids, it would be pretty hard not to have beautiful kids if you were married to this brown headed bombshell.

    Not only is Kajlich a talented actress who also happens to be stunningly gorgeous, she also has some desired height to her frame, which became more evident over the years as she towered over Landon Donovan in all their photos taken together. Anyone looking for their child to be athlete in addition to being good looking? Here's your ticket right here.

3. Along For The Ride

8 of 10

    If you think professional athletes get to go on some first class trips, imagine the vacation life of an actress who also models for Maxim.

    Rules of Engagement is not a TV show that is being filmed non-stop year round, which makes plenty of time for vacation. Not to mention some of the places that she goes for her photo shoots.  If you are one who likes to take nice vacations and spend your time out in the sun, what could be better then escaping to a tropical island with this celebrity beauty by your side?

2. The Life of a Celeb

9 of 10

    Ever dreamed of living the life of a movie star? Well if you were to get hooked up with this hot, newly single actress, you could life that life without having to do any work yourself.

    Kajlich is a well known actress, who is known for her talent on the screen, and perhaps even more so, for her stunningly beautiful looks. She lives the life of a celebrity: parties, high-class social events, photo shoots, and if you were dating her, you would instantly fall into that circle.

    The life of a celebrity isn't too bad. But, when shes a celebrity that looks like this, it just doesn't get much better.

1. She Is Just That Hot

10 of 10

    You don't get added to Maxim Magazine's "Hot 100" list for nothing.

    Kajlich truly is a natural beauty that would simply stand out above the rest. Could you imagine showing up at your high school reunion with your arm around this celebrity beauty?

    She is gorgeous, talented, and has already dated a professional athlete, so is probably looking to move on to something new. Who wouldn't want to date her?
