In her first public appearance since her two former assistants were acquitted, Nigella Lawson opened up on Good Morning America about how she’s coped with the stress of the trial: a pick-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps attitude paired with a lot of chocolate. When asked about the pain caused by the public scrutiny of the trial, as well as that of her recent divorce from Charles Saatchi, Lawson responded: “I’ll be honest, to have not only your private live, but distortions of your private life, put on display is mortifying.” Yet celebrity chef and cookbook-writer says she’s not one to dwell in self-pity, and claims she’s moved on from the humiliation of her public drug revelations last month. “Since then, I’ve had a lot of chocolate, had a very good Christmas, and I’m into the new year,” she stated confidently. Blake Lively, a professed Lawson fan, would surely approve.
