iVillage Woman of the Week: Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon

Each week we pick one woman who's done something to make us proud. This week we're loving Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon for standing up for herself in response to her husband's infidelities.

There's been an endless parade of unfaithful husbands in the news lately. From Tiger Woods to Jesse James to Tiki Barber, it seems lying and cheating is suddenly a Hollywood epidemic. But so far, the scorned women in the headlines have had little or nothing to say publicly. Not a peep from Elin Nordegren. And so far, Sandra Bullock has only spoken out to say there is no sex tape -- and never will be!

But the beautiful Beauvais-Nilon, 43, is one woman who wants the whole world to know: she's angry that her husband is a jerk!

When the actress found out Mike Nilon (a Hollywood agent and the father of their 2-year-old twins) was having an affair, she decided to fight back -- and sent a mass email to his colleagues at CAA (Creative Artists Agency) with the subject "Tiger Woods, Jesse James, Mike Nilon" and the message continued: "What do they have in common...I found out today that MY husband of almost 9 yrs has been having an affair for 5 yrs with some slut in Chicago. I am devastated!!!! And I have been duped!! Our boys don't deserve this." 

Some may say that sending out reputation-damaging email wasn't the most mature response to a having her heart broken. But we can't blame her for passing up the opportunity to call it like it is: Downright hurtful.
