Well, it took them long enough to tell us!  It looks like actress Denise Richards & beau Richie Sambora are dunzo!  And it appears as if the former hot couple broke their rather public relationship off more than two months ago!

Don’t they know they’re supposed to keep us abreast of situations like these? 

Denise’s rep revealed that the duo did not disclose their break-up “because they lived through public divorces and it was very painful.”

Hmm, I see.  So painful that getting naked & drunk publicly made it all better?

27-year-old  supermodel Petra Nemcova has finally dumped the 32-year-old baggage I like to call James Blunt.

We were all scratching our heads wondering how in the world James was able to tag Petra for almost two years, but it looks like the magic has ended for the couple.

And Blunt has already moved on to none other than the teen queen herself, Lindsay Lohan.

Though according to mommy Dina, “They’re friends.”

It’s now a new age, we are finally living in a world without a Petra & James matchup.  It’s a good thing to be free once again!

kenny-chesney-renee-not-gay-2-20-07.jpg38-year-old country star Kenny Chesney has finally come clean about his sexuality & his quickie marriage to actress Renee Zellweger.

In an interview with “60 Minutes” Chesney denied & denied & denied rumors about the reason for annulment of his four-month marriage to Renee Zellweger.  Ever since the couple split in September 2005, rumors have circulated that Kenny was in fact gay.  When Renee filed for the marriage annulment, she actually cited “fraud” as the reason for the break-up, giving many to believe the cowboy swings in the male direction of things.

“It’s not true,” Kenny denied.

“Maybe I should have come out and said no, I’m not (gay), but I didn’t want to draw any more attention to it … I didn’t have to prove to anybody that I wasn’t (gay) … I didn’t feel like I really did.”

Chesney went on to try & explain why Zellweger had chosen the word “fraud” in the annulment paperwork.  The country singer said they chose this word due to its ambiguity.

“We thought was the least harmful was fraud ’cause it’s kind of broad, whatever it is. Doesn’t specify. And, boy, didn’t, we were wrong. But, it’s okay. The only fraud that was committed was me thinking that I knew what it was like. That I really understood what it was like to be married, and I really didn’t,” Chesney stated.

Interestingly, Kenny said he does not regret the short marriage to Renee Zellweger & is in fact looking forward to having a husband wife & children one day.

ryan-phillippe-ellen-degeneres-show-ava-2-16-07.jpgWow.  Make sure you catch the Ellen DeGeneres Show today!  In his first interview since separating from estranged wife Reese Witherspoon, Breach actor Ryan Phillippe talks about the upcoming divorce & his family. 

After a seven-year marriage to Witherspoon in which they had two children, 7-year-old Ava & 3-year-old Deacon, Phillippe reveals his pain about the split.  “It’s devastating,” Phiippe tells DeGeneres.

“But the bottom line is the focus is on the children and they’re doing amazingly well and that is really all that matters.”

Phillippe goes on to reveal that he has been working non-stop since the breakup & has focused on his favorite woman in his life, daughter Ava.

“As difficult as it is, my daughter has been the inspiration — she has, my 7 year old daughter is Ava yeah, she is beyond, in terms of like conscientiousness and maturity, and she has gotten me thru this…I know it sounds pathetic, I’m a 32-year-old guy, but my 7-year-old daughter is getting me thru the toughest time in my life, and that’s beautiful too.”

OK, I don’t mean to be on the negative side of things, but does anyone actually beleive that smelly load of crap?  As I recall, Ryan kinda dipped his “ice cream” cone in a lot of “flavors” during his seven-year marriage to Reese.  I’m just not buying the new poor me, Ryan.  I don’t think he’s ever really had a remorseful attitude about the split.  Maybe he is a decent actor afterall…..


Mischa Barton & Cisco Adler Split


Mischa Barton & Cisco Adler have decided to call it quits.  After being in a serious relationship for more than a year, the couple has decided to throw in the towel, probably because Adler was sick of seeing all that Barton cellulite!

Barton’s rep confirmed the breakup, stating, “Mischa and Cisco have decided to part ways.”

“Mischa is moving east soon and they both have very demanding schedules.”

Earlier this week there were reports that Barton & rocker Adler had gone their separate ways, but a rep for Cisco stated, “They are fine – very happy together.”

Interesting, doesn’t look like they’re all that happy together if they are breaking up there, rep.  What are you going to do with these reps?  They’re always flying by the seat of their pants.

Mischa & Cisco have dated since August 2005, just two months after Barton ended her serious relationship with Brandon “Greasy Bear” Davis & shortly after Adler broke it off with fiance Kimberly Stewart, Rod’s baby daughter.

Well, here’s hoping the two find love elsewhere.

You tell me- Are you happy that Mischa Barton & Cisco Adler are calling it quits?


britney-spears-isaac-cohen-split-2-7-07.jpgBritney Spears is available again!  Hooray!  God, who is she going to get with next?  It can only get worse I fear….

Brit & recent boy toy Isaac Cohen have decided to call it quits after a full month of dating. 

Cohen’s friend Yaniv Fituci reveals that Spears & Cohen work out a little better as pals, saying, “They realized they’re better off as friends.”

“There was no big drama. It was never more than just hooking up.”

Fituci added, “I don’t think he’s in a place for a serious relationship yet. He’s too busy.”

Well, it looks like round two of post-separation dating is over & we can’t wait till we get to round three.  I’m betting on a Kevin Federline hook up.  It would somehow just make sense.

You tell me- Are you happy that Britney Spears & Isaac Cohen are no more?

Thanks to Us Weekly for the image.


johnny-knoxville-melanie-clapp-wife-divorce-2-2-0.jpgJeez, you think you know someone.  Who knew that Jackass Johnny Knoxville was even married, let alone getting separated?  Anyhoo, it appears as if 35-year-old Knoxville is getting separated from his wife Melanie Clapp.

Knoxville & Clapp have been married since 1995 (holy crap!  who could stand that jackass for that long?) & are now calling the relationship quits.  Apparently what ultimately did the marriage in were the constant reports of infidelity on the part of the jackass.  While filming for The Dukes of Hazard, you’ll remember about those nasty rumors that he & Jessica Simpson were bumping uglies.  Ooo, now that’s just wrong.  Image what kind of kids those two would come out with.  Eww.   

According to a source, the blame for the separation should be placed on Johnny’s head, revealing, “How do you live knowing that your husband leads a separate life… and is sleeping with other women all the time? She deserves every penny if she is going to divorce him.”

Knoxville & Clapp have a daughter together, 10-year-old Madison.

Well, besides being utterly blow out of the water that someone could stand to be with Johnny Knoxville for years & years, I’m sorry to hear that another Hollywood relationship is hitting the dust.  What do you think?



Not that it really held either party from dating all over the place, but it looks like 35-year-old Kid Rock & 39-year-old Pamela Anderson are officially getting divorced.  The famous couple separated in November & have both decided that they would like to proceed with the actual divorce. 

From the nuptials on the yacht off the coast of St. Tropez to their Malibu & Nashville wedding vows, it was a crazy four-month long marriage that saw both beauty & despair.  As for why the couple did decide to split, I’m still going with Borat, but I image the miscarriage might have had something to do with it as well.

Wishing to both Pamela & the Kid a happier life down the road.

You tell me- Was the Kid Rock & Pamela Anderson marriage(s) destined to fail?

Thanks to for the image. 


Drew Barrymore & Fabrizio Moretti Split!

fabrizio-drew-barrymore-split-1-10-07.jpgWell, it’s the end of an era, maybe.  31-year-old Drew Barrymore & 26-year-old Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti are calling it quits.  After dating for more than five years, the couple have decided to cool off for a bit.

Apparently Drew is the initiator in the relationship fizzle, wanting to have some space to think & work some things out in her head. 

“Drew said they needed time off,” a source states.

“Fab is now living back in his old apartment,” a Fabrizio pal reveals.

But don’t count the two out for the count, as Barrymore has broken up with Fag two times before.  And in the February edition of Bazar, Drew couldn’t say enough about her subculture man.

“Right now I’m in a phase of ‘I’m not even your girlfriend. I’m your best friend who is madly in love with you,’” Drew told the mag.

“The longest I’ve ever been with someone was like two to three years, so I’m in uncharted waters. Right now I’m more into championing him as a human being than gushing love for him.”

Well, it looks like the gush wore out & it’s back to just being friends.

You tell me- Do you think Drew Barrymore & Fabrizio Moretti will get back together?


Dita Von Teese to Divorce Marilyn Manson, When She Finds Him



34-year-old burlesque star Dita Von Teese has throw in the towel with her husband of one year, 37-year-old Marilyn Manson. Von Teese plans on serving the rocker divorce papers, as soon as she can find the poor ghost-faced Manson.

Dita filed for divorce from Manson shortly before the Christmas holidays, but has been unable to get in touch with her soon-to-be-estranged-man. You know, it’s just too bad, I thought these two were almost made for each other!

Dita, along with most Hollywood celebs, is citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split. According to some Manson pals, Marilyn has been taking to the drink quite a bit & causing some stress in the relationship.

“She really tried to make this work,” a pal stated.

“He’s not been responsive,” the friend continued.

“She loved him so much, but he has too many demons. He can’t even communicate with her at this point. She tried to tell him she was divorcing him, but she can’t even get him on the phone. She moved out of the house and he hasn’t even noticed.”

“Well, at least now she won’t have to share her makeup,” one wise pal stated.

Well, at the very least, Dita has some funny pals to keep her going, eh?

What do you think- Who looks better in makeup, Dita Von Teese or Marilyn Manson?


Tom Brady & Bridget Moynahan Split


Patriots quarterback star Tom Brady & actress Bridget Moynahan have split.  The two ended their three-year relationship amicably, but that’s what they all say, isn’t it?

Moynahan rep released a statement, saying, “Bridget Moynahan and Tom Brady amicably ended their three year relationship several weeks ago. We ask for your respect and consideration of their privacy. No further comments will be made.”

So, why the break-up?  From the looks of it both Brady & Moynahan were pretty focused on their careers.  While Brady was throwing balls & coming up with New England’s plays, actress Bridget was hard at work with her film Six Degrees.

According to one source, “They were both very focused on their careers.”

“She was putting a lot into Six Degrees, he into the Patriots. It was just really hard to make it work.”

Now, who’s going to be next to put a lot into Tom Brady or Bridget Moynahan? 




I see London, I see France, I see that Keira & Rupert are still together?

After the rumormill generated some nasty little ones regarding a possible split between Keira Knightley & beau Rupert Friend, we’re happy to report that the happy couple were spotted bundled up together in London.  So happy together…..

What do you think- How long will Keira & Rupert be able to stick it out?


Bad boy Eddie Murphy unceremoniously dumped Scary Spice Melanie Brown & is demanding a paternity test to determine who the father of her unborn baby really is.  Mel is about five months along in the pregnancy, so they don’t have too long to wait. 

Eddie recently appeared on a Dutch talk show, “RTL Boulevard”.  On the show the host made the mistake of asking if Murphy was happy with Mel, “since she’s pregnant with your child.”

A rather defensive Eddie answered back, saying, “You’re being presumptuous because we’re not together anymore.  And I don’t know whose child that is, until it comes out and has a blood test. You shouldn’t jump to conclusions, sir.”   Wow, I bet that changed the mood of the show a bit.

But oops, 45-year-old Murphy forgot to mention to Scary that things were over between them, as just days after the show Mel stated, “We’re in love. … All [our] children have met and get on, too. … I can’t wait to spend Christmas with him, and I can’t wait to have this baby.”

Poor Mel, she didn’t know what she was getting into with that bad boy Eddie, although that Atisone Kenneth Seiuli thing should have given her a damn clue.

From the looks of it, the Beverly Hills Cop actor may have already moved on with this dating life, showing up for the Dreamgirls premiere with the estranged wife of Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, film producer Tracey Edmonds. 

Wow, ole Ed can really jump to & fro can’t he?  And with six children already with ex-wife Nicole Mitchell Murphy, it looks like it might just be seven pretty soon, don’t ya think?

What do you think- Is Scary Spice Mel B pregnant with Eddie Murphy’s child?


Lance Bass & Reichen Lehmkuhl Break-Up


According to People (& Perez Hilton, I might add), ‘N Sync Lance Bass & former Air Force captain boyfriend hottie Reichen Lehmkuhl have thrown in the rainbow towel, they have broken-up, they have called it quits, they have split.  And it was all going so well I thought….

Cindy Owen, Lance’s publicist, is confirming the break-up with a statement, “They have broken up.”

Sadly, news of the split came as some surprise to Reichen who was somehow unaware of Bass’ statement.  Oops.  Apparently the break-up was mutual (yeah, right), but it looks like Lancey boy was the one who really instigated the move.

What do you think- Did you like Lance Bass & Reichen Lehkuhl as a couple?


Josh Hartnett & Scarlett Johansson Break-Up

josh-hartnett-scarlett-johansson-break-up-11-29-2006.bmpNot only has it been confirmed that Josh Hartnett & Scarlett Johansson are broken-up, but Josh has already found a new bed pal.

After much stress & distance in their more than a year relationship, Hartnett & Johansson have been confirmed as split.  According to one source,  “They’ve just been growing apart for a while, and they had had enough.”

While still another insider revealed, “Yes, they broke up.”

Wow, another one down the drain, eh?  It seems like once you got a taste of Scarlett, you should never look back.  But Josh apparently already has his hands full with yet another woman, actress Amber Sainsbury, his costar in the upcoming thriller 30 Days of Night.  You better watch those costar relations, they always seem to get out of hand, or rather in hand, if you know what I mean.

So, what does 22-year-old Scarlett do next?  Who would you like to see her date in the future?  Do you think Josh & Scar might get back together?


Borat Cause of Pamela Anderson & Kid Rock Divorce



Well, Borat’s Sacha Baron Cohen isn’t having a very good run.  What with the two frat brothers suing him as well as the Romanian village of Glod, Sacha has his attorneys stating up late these days.  And now the comedian has more blood on his hands than he may have bargained for.  Cohen may responsible for (dun dun dun dunn) Pamela Anderson & Kid Rock’s impending divorce.  Wow, those hands of his are never going to come clean….

According to a source close to the famous couple, 39-year-old Anderson & 35-year-old Rock had passed marital bliss long ago (even with just a four-month marriage).  Apparently the “beginning of the end” came around late October when Pam & Kid attended a private screening of Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan; which Pam appears in a cameo.  The screening took place at Universal Studios President Ron Meyer’s house & people would have paid millions to be a fly in the house that night.  Well, probably not millions, but maybe a few dollars.

During the private screening a witness say Kid grab Pam’s arm & stormed her out of the screening room after he saw the scene Anderson participated in.  In the film (SPOIL ALERT), Borat views the infamous Tommy Lee & Pamela Anderson sex tape and then realizes that his dream girl is not actually a virgin, and rather far from it. 

According to the source, “Kid stood outside screaming at Pam, calling her the worst words – slut, whore, you name it.”

“It was horrible, and she was just so hurt by it.”

One source close to the Rock stated, “Yes, he was angry. He thought it was cheap that she put something like that out there. He didn’t see the humor.”

Wow.  So, Borat has the power of the gods to control all things.  Maybe he will get Pamela after all…


Chad Lowe Says Hilary Swank was the Love of his Life

chad-lowe-hilary-swank-extra-interview-11-29-2006.jpgDid anyone watch the Chad Lowe episode of Extra last night?  38-year-old Lowe poured out his little heart in this interview, specifically revealing his feelings about his highly publicized divorce from Hilary Swank for the first time.  Here are some highlights…

On getting divorced from Hilary Swank:

“It has been a tough year and not something I expected. It’s very humbling.”

Ouch- On Swank spilling the beans about his substance abuse to Vanity Fair:

“They were absolutely true, absolutely true. I’ve been sober for three and a half years and very grateful for that… I was disappointed that the details of our relationship became public.”

On Hilary’ support:

“I am so grateful to Hilary for her support of me in a very difficult time in my life three and a half years ago. What hurt me more than anything is that people would think that she wasn’t there for me and she was…She was the love of my life and that’s not something you just shut off. I will always love her.”

Will Hilary & Chad reconcile:

“Not in a marital sense…I’m very happy with my life and where it is now.” He admits, “It’s been a tough year and I’ve gotten through it and at this point with some perspective I can see that things really work out the way they are meant to.”

Will Chad find love again:

“I don’t know. I don’t think you can predict that…I’m very open to it and you know I take great solace in the fact that I know I am capable of really deep love.”

Well, it looks like Chad is hanging in there, and gracefully.  Points for a great interview & not spilling any beans on Hilary.



According to PerezHilton, supermodel Kate Moss is no longer sporting her engagement ring from hubby-to-be, junkie & Babyshambles frontman- Pete Doherty.

Does this mean the tides are changing?  That the world is a little bit happier & most relieved?  Does this indeed mean that Katie Moss has come to her senses & realized that marrying a total junkie probably isn’t the best idea?  Yeah, I didn’t think so either.  It’s a better bet that she just left it by the shower that day.

While fiancee Doherty is spending some much-needed time in a rehabilitation center, Moss takes some shopping time in London Monday, but without that engagement ring.

Let’s make a bet- who’s up for it?  Who thinks Kate Moss & Pete Doherty are down the tubes?  And who thinks Moss just forgot to put the bad boy on before leaving the flat this morning?  You tell me.  Answer to come in the following weeks, as we watch, wait & see if Moss marries junkiepants Doherty.
