Societal big gal, Caroline Oladehinde appears to have pushed away the pains of her broken marriage.
The Exxon Mobil attention getter is has reverted to her maiden name and resumed social circle.
Here are the trending details
'Even if she has not completely got over it or plainly told the world that her marriage has gone south, Exxon Mobil’s highflyer and one of high society’s cheerleaders, Caroline Olasehinde, is learning to live happily with her single status.
Married to successful pilot Captain Lanre Rhodes at an elaborate wedding that held at the Caverton Helicopter Lounge in Victoria Island, Lagos, years back, Caroline’s nuptial was a union bordering on the utopian – a fantastic job, a successful hubby, a luminous presence on the Lagos high society and an easily recognisable name that can turn a cage fight into a cocktail party -among other perks.
They were the envy of many couples. Together, they put concerted efforts and conspicuous energy into making the marriage work. To remove the negative feelings around her, Caroline, with the active support of her hubby, adopted a set of female twins around 2010. They were supposed to live happily ever after or so the world thought.
But when cracks began to surface in the marriage, starting with the abrupt reversal to her maiden name, tongues began to wag conjectures and presuppositions. The rumour mill went into overdrive. From blogs to the mainstream media, the news of her suspected marriage upheavals travelled at Internet speed when she eventually dropped ‘Rhodes’ from her name. Yet, she did not bother to counter all that with explanations.
'Life must go on, she must have reckoned. In adherence to this maxim, she triumphantly pulled all the stops, dug up old partying contacts and brushed up her dancing shoes to celebrate her 50th birthday in London recently. Not for her the sneers and sniggers regarding the absence of her ex-pilot hubby at the lavish soiree.
For Caroline, the Rhodes chapter, with all the good memories that will come with it, may have been closed at least for now, if not forever.'
