Sweet birthday treat helps ease John Cleese's divorce woes

Friday September 25, 2009

John Cleese continues to see the humour in his multi-million divorce payment to third wife Alyce Faye Eichelberger.

At an early 70th birthday dinner thrown by his close friend Michael Winner, the Monty Python star was presented with an interesting pudding.

His host had ordered a wedding cake with the traditional bride and groom figures and the message "better luck next time", reports the Daily Mail.

Guests including Hollywood legend Leslie Caron also had a chuckle over a menu printed for the occasion.

It carried a picture of the actor and Alyce with the caption: "Right friend. Wrong wife".

Filmmaker Michael has been trying to cheer John up since the break-up of his marriage – even taking him on a so-called 'divorce moon' to Switzerland.
