Life after divorce seemed so easy for Carole Lombard. It was an amicable one, and some were predicting that she and William Powell would soon get back together. (Both of them knew better, of course.) But a year after the split, Carole told a fan magazine that life as a divorcee was no bed of roses:

Alas, we don’t have the entire story, from the September 1934 issue of Hollywood magazine…but someone can get it by winning the magazine at auction. It’s got some other goodies, too, like a Jean Harlow cover in which her fabled platinum hair might seem a bit too platinum…

…while she and Mae West debate the value of “holding your man.” They each have different perspectives on the topic, no surprise since West was nearly two decades older than Harlow:

And how about this “date”? Baby Leroy gets sociable with Shirley Temple, Lombard’s co-star in “Now And Forever”:
