'The First Wives Club'

Scene from this movie When a mutual friend commits suicide, Bette Midler (as Brenda), Goldie Hawn (Elise) and Diane Keaton (Annie) are brought together for the first time since college. It doesn’t take long for them to realize what dire straits their married lives are in. After helping their husbands reach their respective pinnacles of success, they have been unceremoniously dumped for trophy bimbos.
