Olivia Wilde's TMI Moment

How personal is too personal for you?

Olivia Wilde, an actress and model (and fox) was married very young (at 19!) to an Italian prince and mega millionaire. They divorced in 2011. She began quietly dating Jason Sudeikis (who has dated Jennifer Aniston and January Jones in the past) earlier this year, and the other night, at an event hosted by Glamour Magazine, Wilde said the following about the end of her marriage to her Italian husband:

"I felt like my vagina died. Turned off. Lights out...And you can lie to your relatives at Christmas dinner and tell them everything on the home front is just peachy. But you cannot lie to your vagina."

Now, let me clarify. This wasn't overheard by someone eavesdropping on a private converstion. This was part of her presentation at the Glamour event. She went on to talk about her sex life with Sudeikis, saying, "we have sex like Kenyan marathon runners."

What does that even mean? 

I'm all for open and frank sexual discussion in public, because, well, I'm all for any type of open and frank discussion at any time, but I'm wondering if the "vagina died" bit followed up with the "marathon runners" part isn't just a REALLY mean spirited way at sticking it to her ex-husband. And I'm not sure I'm particularly comfortable with her having to throw in the Kenyan bit. Like, you don't need to call out specific racial/cultural groups to say "we have marathon sex sessions!"

I'm just not sure I'm 100% on board with this. I'm like 70% on board...but not clear why the other 30% is lacking in my brain.

So, spill it! Do you think Wilde's comments crossed the line into TMI categories? Was she being mean?
