Top Celebrity Divorces of 2008

16 04 2009

I have decided to compiled a list of the top 5 celebrity divorces of 2008.  Those crazy celebs always seem to provide us with enough drama to last a lifetime, especially when it comes to their relationships.  Staying together is hard enough in any situation let alone in Hollywood where you are criticized, judged, watched, and tempted by anything and anyone around you.

The star studded life of these tinsel towners may seem glamorous, but their disastrous relationships seem to prove otherwise.  The list I have compiled contains both newly married couples as well as those who have been together for centuries.  No matter what the reason for the split…they all ended in divorce.  Maybe we can learn something from these A-Lister’s and chose wisely next time we think about the “M” word.

Here they are…

1.) Eddie Murphy & Tracy Edmund:

This lovely marriage only lasted for a measly two weeks.  Pretty pathetic, if you ask me!  They must have had a really bad honeymoon (aka bad sex).

2.) Madonna & Guy Richie:

Rumors circulated around this high-powered couple for over a year, expressing a possible breakup.  Madge was even accused of having an affair with Baseballer stud, Alex Rodriguez.  Weather the rumors were true or not, the couple did decide to end their marriage after being together for 7.5 years.

3.) Morgan Freedman & Myrna Colley-Lee:

It definitely seemed like this couple was going to make it all the way…but, they feel short.  Things between the two seemed to get pretty rocky following a serious car crash that Freedman was involved in.  After dating for 8 years and being married for another 24, the couple decided to call it quits.

4.) Robin William & Marsha Garces:

This couple met in an interesting fashion.  Garces, who started out as the nanny for William’s son, became his wife for 20 years.  They had two children together and decided to go their own separate ways after filing for irreconcilable differences.  Maybe William’s has a new nanny that he has fallen for?

5.) Pink & Carey Hart:

This punk rocker and her hubby of two years decided to call it quits after coming to terms that they were just “better off as friends.”  Sometimes the chemistry just dies, and without that passion for each other, a relationship can get really shallow and boring!

I hope you all enjoy this list and please let me know if there are any other celeb couples that I missed.  Also, does anyone have any ideas on who the top divorced Hollywood couples of 2009 will be?  Let’s start taking bets!

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!





Leanne Rimes Booty Call

23 03 2009

If you’re not getting any at home, then you must be getting it somewhere!  Which brings me to the subject of the latest in celebrity gossip… Leanne Rimes and her supposed scandal with costar Eddie Cibrian.  The “happily” married country sweetheart allegedly has been getting some booty behind her husband’s back.  Naughty, naughty.  To confirm the allegations, a video surveillance camera caught the scandalous pair exchanging much more than just words at a Los Angeles eatery.

So, what is Leanne’s poor husband, Dean Sheremet, doing while his unfaithful woman is sucking face with her costar hottie?  Getting blasted on a morning news station in Michigan for apparently being gay.  I bet you didn’t see that one coming, and neither did I, but you heard right!  While Dean Sheremet’s wife is busy getting some booty, he is busy getting his sexuality questioned by his friends and family.  Ouch!

Ok, so cheating sucks, especially when you are married, but, which is worse, a cheating wife or a gay husband?  My conclusion is this:  Leanne Rimes cheated on her husband because he is gay.  Obviously he is not giving her what she needs to be sexually satisfied.  How can you blame her for pursuing a man that actually enjoys a woman’s company? Bottom line: everyone needs some loving.

Moral of the story:  Marriage can wait! You would think that if you dated long enough, you would figure out if your husband was gay.    Duh!
