Several high-profile marriages imploded this week, and the world is weeping. If they can’t hold on to love, who can?
Mismatched couple Courtney Cox and David Arquette are very very close to calling it quits. They’ve separated after 11 years of marriage, saying through a flack that they want to “better understand ourselves and the qualities we need in a partner and for our marriage.” It was all well and good until David went on Howard Stern and said Courtney “didn’t want to be his mother anymore” and that he slept with “the girl in the paper” aka Jasmine Waltz, an aspiring singer/actress. He then apologized on Twitter for sharing too much. Ya think?
Also this week came news that former “Dirrty” girl Christina Aguilera is breaking up with husband Jordan Bratman. One source says a wild vacation with Nicole Richie and Lindsay Lohan ex Samantha Ronson was to blame. “Our commitment to our son, Max, remains as strong as ever,” they said. Christina filed for divorce on Thursday. And now the biggest question is, who is she going to date next?
The biggest blowup in the media world came Wednesday on—where else?—The View. Perhaps the ladies at the round table are worried about the competition from The Talk, or perhaps they just really hate Bill O’Reilly. While a guest on the show, the talking head blowhard enraged the hosts by claiming Americans were opposed to the mosque near Ground Zero because Muslims “killed us on 9/11.” Whoopi tried to correct him (No no Bill, an extremist sect of Islam…) and Joy became so furious she walked off the set. Whoopi followed. Mother hen Barbara Walters then told the audience they witnessed something that “should not have happened.”
Get out your wallets…there are supposedly nude photos of Kanye West out there in existence—and they’re for sale! One source is claiming they’ve seen “self-snapped photos” of the singer that he sent around to multiple women. Nude Kanye, sunglasses, gold chain. Believe it when you see it.
Bruce Willis’ little girl is all grown up. Rumer Willis was spotted getting cozy with one of the new faces on Glee this season. Chord Overstreet, the blonde singer who made an appearance in the premiere, was spotted at a party with Bruce ‘n’ Demi’s girl, who just split with her boyfriend a few weeks ago. Aw, young love. Just don’t take dating tips from Christina and Courtney.
Katy Perry is finally going to tame Russell Brand’s wild ways. The couple is getting married in the next week in India. In case you forgot to RSVP, they’re flying their guests to India for a six-day affair. “We just love each other and we want to get married in front of our friends and family and keep it very normal,” Russell said. Rihanna and her boyfriend will be among the “normal” guests. Mazel tov!
Harry Potter’s getting a little randy in his old age. Daniel Radcliffe is hitting the Great White Way later this year as the lead character in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, but says he’s single to take advantage of the wide variety of New York women. “I’ve been in relationships from the age of 14 and now I’m single,” he said. “I said to a friend the other day, ‘Dude, I’m doing a show with dancers. I’ve got to be single.”
All this attention heaped on Courtney & David and Christina & Jordan is good news for Ashton & Demi. They spent the week in Israel to “share love & light,” he tweeted. “Asking 4 the energy 2 forge bonds with our similarities & find compromise in our differences.” Ashton’s rumored to have cheated with a 21-year-old who turned around and blabbed to the tabloids. It takes a lot of love and light to get over that.
Publishing honcho Peter Brant and wife Stephanie Seymour just called off their acrimonious divorce after patching up their relationship. Now, a nude bust of her by Maurizio Cattelan is on the market—and on the cover of an art catalog in all its glory. Will he be jealous—or laugh it off? Only time will tell.
Jennifer Aniston has a new enemy, and it’s a doozy. In an interview Joan Collins said that she’s “cute, but I wouldn’t call her beautiful. She’s no Ava [Gardner] or Lana [Turner].” The response from Jen’s camp: “There’s no need to engage with that nonsense.” And here we were hoping for a reenactment of that infamous Dynasty catfight.
