How are you going to celebrate your divorce? For some, this may sound odd, but divorce parties are becoming more and more popular, especially in Hollywood. Here, we present the top five celeb divorce parties that didn't happen but should have.

Demi Moore and Bruce Willis Divorce Party

Divorce parties might seem a bit unconventional, but getting all the friends who have supported you during the divorce process together for a party seems like a must for any new divorcee. And with 50 percent of all marriages ending in divorce in the U.S., it seems like the trend will only increase.

Divorce parties are particularly appealing to celebrities, as they are a great way to show the public and media that they're moving on and that they will survive. Plus, the glitz and glamour of Hollywood make it the perfect place to throw an over-the-top divorce party.

Recent celeb divorcees like Jennifer Lopez and Maria Shriver could definitely use a divorce party to officially tell their exes and the world that they have moved on. While they still have time to throw a divorce party, there are some celebs over the years that really should have had one. Here are the top five celeb divorce parties that didn't happen -- but should have: 

1Elizabeth Taylor

She was Hollywood royalty and after being married eight times (twice to Richard Burton), Taylor should have had at least one divorce party. Why didn't she? Perhaps she was too busy getting married to throw one.

2Ivana Trump

After being married to Donald Trump and working out a divorce with the ultimate businessman, this woman must have needed a divorce party. And I think it would have been a doozy, especially after she said in public, "Don't get mad. Get everything."

3Fran Drescher

This beautiful TV star broke up with her husband, Peter Marc Jacobson, because he came out of the closet. If that isn't a reason to have a divorce party, I don't know what is.

4Sandra Bullock

The Blind Side star was blindsided when her bad boy husband Jesse James cheated on her. Bullock took the high road and stayed strong, but if anyone deserves a divorce party, it's her.

5Demi Moore

Moore and Bruce Willis seem to have a great relationship after their divorce. They've certainly stayed strong and connected over the years, which has set a great example for their children. This is a couple who could have thrown a divorce party together!
