Sara Evans, Craig Schelske

Cast your minds back to 2006, when Paula Abdul was still on American Idol, Tiger Woods was still an appropriate role model, Karina Smirnoff was still dancing with stars and one of the biggest scandals of the year was country music star (and withdrawn DWTS contestant) Sara Evans' sordid divorce.

Ah, those were the days.

Well, thanks to Evans' recent decision to file for a temporary restraining order against her allegedly porn-loving ex, Craig Schelske, those days are here again.

Evans was granted the TRO in Tennessee court on Wednesday, and the document prevents Schelske from engaging in the usual rundown of no-nos, including making any derogatory statements about the singer to the media or allegations about what led to their split.

Besides, the media has pretty much had that covered for the last three years, anyway.

As it happens, both sides have lobbed accusations of infidelity at the other, with both equally vehement in their denials. The pressure got so intense that in October 2006, Evans withdrew from Dancing With the Stars in order to deal with her marital implosion and the duo ultimately divorced the following year.

The couple, who was together for 13 years, has three children together. But at least one of them has had something of a happy ending: Evans married former University of Alabama quarterback Jay Barker in June 2008.

A hearing in the case has been set for March 15.
