Kathleen Buhle talks about divorcing Hunter Biden, battling cancer and reclaiming her identity in new memoir

For more than 20 years, Kathleen Buhle made it her job to keep secrets. As the ex-wife of Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, she tried her best to keep their private lives out of the public eye. But in her new memoir, If We Break: A Memoir of Marriage, Addiction and Healing, Buhle opens up about her divorce.

“For a long time I carried my identity too closely attached to my husband, so in many ways divorce was one of the best things that ever could have happened to me because I was forced to reclaim my identity,” says Buhle.

In this episode of Yahoo Life's Unapologetically series, reporter Brittany Jones-Cooper speaks with Kathleen Buhle about her divorce, loving someone with an addiction, battling cancer and this next chapter in life. Watch for more.
