Mel Gibson: The man behind the worlds most expensive divorce

14 04 2009

OK, so we are all well aware of the fact that in Hollywood, marriage, relationships, and really all commitments between two people of any kind, do not seem to last long. However, if for some miracle  it does last longer than a few months (or weeks), the ending is sure to be no fairy tale.

Let’s take a look at A-Lister and world-renounced big screen actor, director, and producer, Mr. Mel Gibson. This money making mogul is estimated to be worth around $1 billion! His movie, The Passion of the Christ, (that he both directed and produced), pulled in $600 million in the box office alone!

So, what is the only problem with being that rich…?

Going through a divorce from a 28 year-long marriage with NO prenup.  Ouch!

Yup! Looks like Mel Gibson is going to lose half of his earnings (or $500 million) to his soon to be ex-wife, Robyn Moore. The couple has 7 kids together and have been married since 1980. Moore, who is very-low profile, is about to be an extremely wealthy and single lady…

So if you’re looking for a sugar mama, she might just be the perfect candidate ;).

They say distance makes the heart grow fonder…

10 04 2009

They say distance makes the heart grow fonder, unfortunately, this is not the case in every relationship… Especially when it comes to the long distance marriage between Billy Joel and wife Katie Lee.  For this couple, distance in fact makes the eyes wander…or at least Katie’s eyes.

Billy Joel’s crazy tour schedule keeps him away from his bombshell wife for months at a time.  However, it doesn’t seem like Katie is too upset at his absence.  Instead of missing her hubby and eagerly awaiting his return from tour, Katie is embracing her “alone” time by hanging out and getting down with another man.

36 year old Yigal Azrouel has been Katie’s designer and close “friend” for over a year now.  The two have become extremely close in the time that Joel has been on tour and have been seen out together on multiple occasions.

In the beginning, Joel just thought that the two were really good friends and was happy that Katie had found a companion to keep her occupied while he was away.  Humm..well I guess Yigal really did occupy her…in the bedroom.

Billy has not made any final decisions as to whether or not he is going to give his two-timing woman a second chance,  or ditch her to find another 20-something year old.  Either way, again, Hollywood gives us yet another great example as to why MARRIAGE CAN WAIT!





Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson call it quits!

7 04 2009

Another Hollywood couple has decided to go their own separate ways…and is all i can say is, “it’s about time!”

No, this is not the Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston type, tear jerk-er break up…Not even close.

When I think about Lindsay Lohan and her leading lesbian lady, Samantha Ronson, I shake my head disapprovingly.  The tumultuous couple has shocked thousands, if not millions of people from the very beginning.  How the relationship lasted so long, I have no idea…but now that it has come to an end, we can all sleep better at night.

The reason behind the break up?  Lohan has decided to take the focus off of her drama-filled relationship and into herself.  That is probably the best idea yet.  In a short sentence Lindsay sums it all up for us…

“We are taking a brief break so I can focus on myself.”

Lohan definitely should be selfish and focus all efforts on herself…and hopefully, for the sake of everyone, the break up will not be brief, but infinite.





Rhianna is going home ALONE

7 04 2009

After being beaten and abused by one of the music world’s FORMER favorites, Rhianna finally decides to takes a stand and leave Chris Brown’s pathetic ass behind.  Following her vacation in Hawaii and LA (where she spend time recouping with friends), she headed back to her home town of Barbados without Chris Brown anywhere in sight.  You go girl!  Walk away and don’t EVER look back.

Several weeks ago, when Rhianna confronted Chris about a “booty call” text message he had received, he decided to skip right past apologizing and explaining himself, and instead decided to beat the snot out of her.  Hummm…nice apology a-hole!

And that’s not even the worst part… After Brown decided to apologize to Rhianna (you’re a little late loser), and the entire world for his horrific behavior, Rhianna chose to stick by his side.  WTF?  Seriously, its so sad when girls become so consumed and controlled by a man that they end up staying in a relationship that literally tears them apart.

Domestic violence is a HUGE problem for women, and it doesn’t matter if you are being mentally, physically, or emotionally abused, they ALL count, they all matter, and they all are considered forms of ABUSE.

I know that it can be incredibly hard to let someone go and to come to the realization that they are not good for you.  However, sometimes it has to be done…You have to bite the bullet and make a decision to stand up for yourself and leave the baggage behind.

It’s great to see that Rhianna has realized this and has chosen to take the high road.  Although Chris Brown NEVER deserved a second chance in the first place, it’s better late than never.





Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler…”It’s Over!”…Again…

2 04 2009

Looks like the on-again off-again couple is OFF…again.  I wonder how long their supposed break up will last this time?  My guess is no more than a week.  Maybe the reason these two are always calling it quits just to jump right back in, is because they have really good make up sex…humm…you just never know?

Travis and Shanna’s relationship has been a roller coaster ride from the very beginning.  The unstable couple has been though a lot, including a reality television show stint, two kids, a divorce, Travis’s near death plane crash, and now an alleged affair?  Yup…the drama is nowhere near being over as the couple decides to spilt again (we have lost count on the number) after a vicious argument erupted over Shanna’s so called affair with movie star hottie, Gerard Butler.  Apparently, while Travis was hospitalized after barely surviving a brutal plane crash, the former Miss America and mother of two was busy enjoying Butler’s chiseled abs.

While it may seem like Shana is insensitive, this is not the case…AT ALL.  Yesterday, Moakler lashed back in her official blog that she is sick and tired of having her character and morality bashed.  She explains that at the time of the plane crash, Travis and her were very much committed and she stood by his side for love and support.  However, after he was well enough to return to LA, she discovered  romantic emails from numerous women that confirmed Travis’ lies and infidelity.

Shana is not the only one who is at fault here.  Both individuals engaged in wrongful acts and expressed inappropriate behavior, and BOTH should take responsibility for their mistakes.  Travis Barker needs to grow some balls and admit that his ex wife is not the only one at fault here.  I mean, come on…What do you expect your significant other to do if she finds erotic emails from women who are not her?  You can bet she will go find herself some loving too.  Duh!

Maybe if they both apologize they can decide to reconcile their differences for the thousandth time and get back together, AGAIN.  Blah!





Top 5 Male Celebrity Gold Diggers

31 03 2009

Hide your credit cards ladies, you’re not the only ones racking up the points on your VISA.  If you think that the ever-so popular term “gold digger” is only applied to women, then think again.  More and more males are choosing to reside in relationships with women who bring home the benjamins.  Move over sugar daddies and make room for the sugar mamas.

Powerful, money making women are extremely prevalent in the celebrity world, as more and more A-list couples are supported by a female bread winner.  Not to say that these men aren’t doing well for themselves, but their women are the ones who really take the cake.  Check out these gold-digging male celebs and the sugar mamas that support their asses.

#5: Josh Duhamel and Fergie

Fergalicious took home $13 million dollars in 2008 alone by combining her earnings from the album sales and tour of “The Duchess,” as well as her endorsement deal with Candie’s shoe line.  Her hunky hubby made $3 million from his role on the now-cancelled sitcom Las Vegas, and his role in the movie Transformers.  Fergie is the easy money making winner here, but Josh is so incredibly hot that his looks alone make make up the deficit.

#4: Seal and Heidi Klum

This outrageously gorgeous supermodel and television show host raked in $14 million in 2008, while her singer hubby only came in with $1.5 million from his new album release and tour.  Heidi does not only get hotter with age but she also gets smarter and richer.  Seal is one lucky guy.

#3: Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow

This rocker/actress couple earned a total of $19 million combined in 2008.  However, Gwyneth earned $18 million and Chris only $1 million.  Gwyn, who had a major role in the blockbuster hit Iron man, also earned some serious cash in her endorsement deal with the makeup mogul Este’ Lauder.  Her man earned his measly $1 million contribution from Cold Play’s new album release, Viva La Vida.  $1 million ain’t bad, but when you put an 8 at the end of it…it sure looks a whole lot better.  Way to represent for the ladies Gywn!

#2: Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker

This television and movie star duo acquired some major money in 2008, totaling $21 million.  Broderick’s role in The Bee Movie, Finding Amanda, and The Tale of Despereaux earned him $3 million.  His Sex and the City front runner pulled in $18 million in her role as Carrie Bradshaw as well as from an endorsement deal with Steve & Barry’s and her new perfume line.  Just like her character, Carrie, in Sex and the City, Sarah Jessica Parker steals the limelight and leaves a dark shadow looming over her better half.

#1: Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani

The leading lady in the money making category goes to the beautiful and talented Gwen Stefani.  Between her international tour for The Sweet Escape, amazing fashion line, and endorsement deal with Hewlett-Packard, this rocker beauty brought home a whopping $27 million in one single year.  Wow!  Her husband, donated his $1 million income to the relationship with the release of his first ever solo album called Wanderlust.  Gwen receives the title for ultimate sugar mama, and her man gets pegged with the ultimate gold digger…Ouch!

Ladies, hopefully these successful and beautiful women can empower you to make that money honey!  As for you guys out there, either get your lazy ass off the couch and start being the “man” in the relationship…or screw it and go find yourself a sugar mama hottie as well.  But you better hurry, cause in this economy they’re sure to be disappearing like flies.
