Sara Evans

My Ex Hurt Our Children on 'Anderson'

10/5/2011 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sara Evans
Country star Sara Evans has obtained a restraining order against her ex-husband -- claiming he irreparably harmed their children by badmouthing her on Anderson Cooper's new TV show.

Craig Schelske appeared on "Anderson" back on September 20 -- claiming he lost custody of his kids because Sara falsely accused him of being a porn-obsessed adulterer.

Sara claims the interview not only violated a temporary injunction she obtained against Craig back in 2010 -- blocking him from bashing Sara in public -- it also "caused and will continue to cause irreparable harm to the children."

On September 21 -- a day after the interview aired -- Sara filed a request for a restraining order to block Craig from making further statements about their divorce proceedings. A judge signed the order the same day.

A source close to Craig tells us, "This is a violation of his First Amendment rights, and he won't take it lying down."

HMMMM    

Your ex did NOT hurt your children on Cooper's new show, if they saw it, YOU hurt your children by allowing them to see it. Quit whining and grow up, both of you, your children deserve better than this crap

This woman is a bitch. I saw the show, he seemed like a truly good and decent man who did nothing wrong. If she is choosing this route, it's crystal clear who is the one doing damage to their children.

No matter the interview, off limits conversations are those about love life except "I'm in love or was in love" children and marriages, present or past. Certain things are not for public consumption. That is where celebrities and politicians get tripped up. Personal lives go no farther than the immediacy of the person. Bad marriages are a train wreck to begin with, but allowing others to view the crash scene is never advisable. Get counseling.

Hey I went to school with Schelske. I am telling you right now the guy has always been a JERK.. He had so little respect for women and used to do HORRIBLE things to the underclass girls. He would do things as a Varsity Football player like walk by an underclass girl in the cafeteria and squirt mustard all over her and ruin her shirt, hair face and laugh. He wouldn't even know her.

He was always, always a jerk and we fought as I was one of the only girls who wasn't afraid of him or had stars in my eyes because he was a "JOCK". Complete douchbag!!! He always thought he was superior and didn't have to follow the rules. I am sorry Sara ever fell for him. But at least she got away....

She's the cheating whore and then tried to accuse the non-famous husband of being a porn-addict who cheated on her with the babysitter. And, of course, the courts took her side because she is the "celebrity" parent.

But I bet the injunction doesn't stop HER bad mouthing HIM, and I am sure she has said plenty to her kids about their dad. Typical B*TCH.

I've heard multiple interviews were Sara Evans talks bad about her ex-husband. I swear every time I flip to GAC they're playing the backstory on Sara Evans' life. In this interview she talks about the divorce and rips her ex apart for a good 15 minutes. I guess Sara can do what she wants because she is a celebrity and in her mind this doesn't harm their children. I went to Anderson Cooper's site and watch a clip of Sara's ex-husband's interview. From what I saw he seemed to be very respectful of Sara. I hope she isn't using this restraining order for publicity.
