(Newser) – In a case of reality following fiction, Gossip Girl "mom" Kelly Rutherford is divorcing her millionaire husband. Rutherford, pregnant with her second child, filed for divorce last week a day before her well-heeled hubby, German entrepreneur Daniel Giersch, filed for separation. Rutherford, who plays a serial companion to rich men on the TV series, has a toddler son with her husband named Hermés, just like the tony handbag company. So very Lily van der Woodsen.
