'Gossip Girl' Couple Bonds Over Divorce and Kids

Their characters are not exactly in good terms right now on Gossip Girl, but from the looks of it, Kelly Rutherford and Matthew Settle are trying to make a good thing out of adversity off-screen. The actors who play the parents of Serena (Blake Lively), Dan (Penn Badgley) and Jenny (Taylor Momsen) on the CW series are bonding over, of all things, divorce and kids.

Rutherford, 41, is helping Settle go through his divorce, as she is in the middle of one herself. But don't count on the prospect of them extending their characters' on-screen romance from the Upper East Side to real life, as that is just not Rutherford's focus at the moment.

"He's going through his own thing, I'm going through my own thing - we kind of just support each other," she tells People.com. "[Dating] is not really my focus at the moment. If it happens, great, but I have the two most beautiful little ones, a great job, and it's really all-consuming."
