    It's not often that stars get more famous by leaving a hit television show, but country singer and Dancing With the Stars contestant Sara Evans managed to do just that last week, thanks to an extremely sordid divorce that was apparently the main reason for her quitting ABC's popular celebrity dance competition.

    According to divorce papers filed by Evans, which were obtained by newspaper The Tennesseean and later surfaced on the Access Hollywood website, Evans' husband of 13 years, Craig Schelske, is a total scumbag. The divorce papers allege that Schelske "frequently verbually abused, emotionally abused and harassed" his wife; that he "frequently watches pornography" on the Internet; that he posted ads on Craig's List seeking "three party sex" and "anal sex"; and that he had a huge collection of photographs of his, er, excited male anatomy, and of himself in sexual positions with several other women.

    He also, according to Evans' divorce filing, has accused her of being crazy and threatened to take away the couple's three children, ages 2, 3 and 7.

    On Friday night, shortly after the divorce papers first surfaced, Schelske issued a statement denying any wrongdoing. "I have made the decision to forgive Sara for the unfortunate campaign that she and her publicity advisors are currently waging," the statement read in part. "Sara has unfortunately become a dramatically different person over the last year and it is something we have struggled to deal with. Sadly, it appears we have failed."

    Evans is scheduled to make her final appearance on Dancing With the Stars on Tuesday, October 17th. ABC is undoubtedly eagerly looking forward to an extremely high ratings boost.
