Lesley's Successful Career After Divorce With Gary Oldman

She thought she'd be married to Gary for a long time and have a big family, but they divorced in 1990.
She said that if they had stayed together, she wouldn't have the successful career she has today.
The divorce was tough, but she decided not to fall apart. She wanted to continue working and be a great mother.

Lesley has had a successful career in her 60s.
She is very organized and doesn’t like clutter in her life, which is why she prefers being single and not dating.
