John Mulaney’s Ex Wife Anna Marie Tendler Gets Candid About Her “Mental Health Breakdown” During Her Divorce
In 2021 John Mulaney seemed to have undergone a complete overhaul of his life, ushering in newfound sobriety, a relationship with Olivia Munn, and a baby. This came after he kicked his ex-wife, multimedia artist and Swiftie enemy Anna Marie Tendler, to the curb. Now, in an essay about her dog Petunia’s passing for Elle Magazine, Anna Marie shared how the Frenchie helped her overcome the darkest period of her life. Cause while the sky was seemingly the limit for John, she reached rock bottom after suffering from a mental breakdown and hospitalization for “depression, self-harm, and severe suicidal ideation.”
We haven’t heard much regarding whatever it is that’s going on between John Mulaney and Olivia Munn in a while. Which is actually more like an eerie calm, considering there was a time when we were all crunching the numbers on their relationship in full show-your-work algebra mode like Good Will Hunting. But John is back, and his grand return happened on Saturday night’s episode of Saturday Night Live. Obviously he didn’t spend the whole show gushing about what an incredible and totally 100% morally ethical situation he’s currently in with the former star of The Newsroom. Because come on, he had sketches to read cue cards in. But he did briefly mention her in his monologue, as well as crack a few jokes about their 12-week-old son.
Anna Marie Tendler did an interview with Harper’s Bazaar and talked about her art career, transforming her Connecticut home into a “haunted dollhouse”, and her extremely public divorce from John Mulaney. When the topic turned to John, Anna took a looong, deep drag from her cigarette and said, “So the cheater and his biggest fan had a baby he’ll have to pay child support for when they inevitably break?” JK, Anna kept it civil and described the divorce as “shocking” and “surreal.” Continue reading
With a timeline more complex than the plot of the new Matrix, the speculation of the birthdate of Olivia Munn and John Mulaney’s baby has been all over the place. In an effort to keep us confused about the exact timing of their hookup (did it happen during John’s rehab stint? After? In another timeline, à la The Lake House?!), the couple has been very vague about WHEN this baby was made. And Olivia’s prospective due date of “at the end of the year” didn’t exactly help clear things up. The baby was reportedly already born in November, but since there’s been no peep from either party, people are still guessing. Well, you can put an end to your “Olivia Munn’s Gestational Period” pool because Malcolm Hiệp Mulaney has officially been born!
I’m sure new mom Olivia Munn plans on spending the next few months nesting while the father of her child, John Mullany, is on tour with his new comedy show From Scratch. Great for them but that’s gotta sting for John’s wife Anna Marie Tendler who, from the looks of her recent Instagram posts, will be spending the next few months continuing to make searing, Gothic art that reflects what it might be like to have your husband of 7 years throw it all away for a perfectly smooth Japanese sweet potato. That he jizzed in!
If you have so far enjoyed the messy roller coaster that has been John Mulaney and Olivia Munn’s relationship, then surely you have also been patiently waiting to see when Olivia would give birth to their baby, whose conception happened in an indeterminate month of origin. Word on the street was that Olivia’s due date was a conveniently vague “at the end of the year.” So I’m sure a whole lot of people were expecting a Munn-Mulaney birth announcement any time between now and December 31st, 11:59 pm. We got one, but the baby was actually born last month, one day before Thanksgiving.
