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.


Pamela Anderson & Kid Rock to Divorce

kid-rock-pamela-anderson-to-divorce-11-29-2006.jpgWHAT?  Pamela Anderson & new husband Kid Rock, after taking the marital plunge four months ago, have decided to file for divorce.  I know, I know, I know.  Calm down, we’ll make it through this together. 

Anderson & Kid Rock have both filed divorce papers, citing “irreconcilable differences”.  Interestingly, Pam’s papers list the day of separation as November 21, but Rock’s list the date November 26.  Anderson has hired celebrity divorce attorney Neal Hersh, who has represented Kim Basinger, Halle Berry, Drew Barrymore, as well as Blonde and Blonder costar Denise Richards.

This comes as a shock to those who followed 39-year-old Pamela’s & 35-year-old Rock’s multiple marriage celebration ceremonies.  The two enjoyed some exchanging of non-legal vows aboard a yacht in St. Tropez, did the real thing in Los Angeles, but then swapped spit again in Nashville as well as Detroit.  Those kids were unstoppable regarding their walk down the isle.  Their official wedding date is listed as August 3, 2006.

So, does this recent split have anything to do with Anderson’s miscarriage?  On November 10, her rep released the sad news about the miscarriage, saying that her & Kid Rock would be trying again soon and that, “Pamela’s privacy be respected at this time.”

It seems like most of the four months the two have been officially hitched, Pam has been shooting the new film Blonde and Blonder will friend & laptop hurler Denise Richards, who not so long ago went through her own messy divorce with ickypants Charlie Sheen.  Did Denise have some influence on this breakup?  And Kid Rock has been a busy boy himself working on a new album that is set to release in early 2007.  Did his work on his new album interfere with Pam time?

I know we’ll find out more in the coming days, but why now?  What is the real reason Pam & Kid are calling it quits, again?  You tell me.


kevin-federline-letter-shower-11-15-2006.jpgAlways the poet, Kevin Federline took a pen to his dressing room shower at the House of Blues in Chicago a day after estrange wife Britney Spears filed for divorce.

K-Fed penned such an elegant & tasteful communiqué to Spears, I was left nearly in tears.

As you can see, Federline pulls from his heart, these words:

“Today I’m a free man
Ladies look out
F–k a wife
Give me my kids B-tch!
–Kevin Federline”

According to sources, these signatures match, so don’t even begin to think it’s a forgery.  And really, who can do Kevin Federline better that Kevin Federline?  And that was so Kevin Federline.


Jude Law Dumped Sienna Miller Due to Excessive Partying

sienna-miller-jude-law-break-up-again-11-14-2006.jpgThis relationship go-round it was Jude Law that called of the rocky romance with Sienna Miller.  What was Jude’s reason?  Too much partying apparently. 

According to one source Jude was not into the partying scene.
“She was just too wild for him,” the source revealed.

“She partied too much. He is a devoted father of four children and she always wanted to go out constantly. He was just done with her.”

But you know, really, Jude ended the relationship the first time, in my opinion, when he admitted to Sienna that he was having an affair with Daisy Wright, the children’s nanny.  Word of advice, get a really, terribly ugly nanny- not a hottie nanny.




With Sienna Miller fresh from her split with Jude Law (again), I’m not so sure she should be seen with another man looking so cozy, less she is thought a tramp.

On the one hand, we may already think that & on the other Miller is just having a special moment with Santa Claus Sunday at the bow-lighting ceremony at Cartier in New York City.

What is Sienna Miller asking for from the jolly, fat man?  I’m guessing Jude Law with just a red bow tied around his hat.  Will these two ever really split up?


shar-jackson-says-kevin-federline-is-a-nice-guy-11-10-2006.jpgActress & ex-girlfriend of Kevin Federline, 30-year-old Shar Jackson, has finally spoken out about her feelings regarding K-Fed & Britney Spears’ divorce.  Jackson is the mother of two of K-Fed’s children, 4-year-old Kori & 2-year-old Kaleb.  You’ll notice the age of the latter is just about as long as Federline & Spears have been an item.  Yeah, that’ll be because Kevin left a very pregnant Shar Jackson for a lovely & available Spears.  How classy.

“I hope that they are mature enough to realize that their differences come second to the needs of their children and that it is no longer about them as individuals, but about maintaining a healthy friendship/relationship for the sake of their children,” Jackson revealed.

Shar recently stated that she saw no ill signs between Kevin & Brit the last time she saw them together at K-Fed’s Halloween album release party.

“They seemed happy to me,” Shar said. “[Britney] gave me a hug…and told me I looked cute.”

Jackson was pretty classy about the whole thing, and color me impressed.  Shar said she has no bitter feelings toward Federline for leaving her for Spears, in fact she feels pity for the poor boy.

“He’s such a nice guy.  He’s made some mistakes but everybody else doesn’t have the whole world pointing their finger at their mistakes.”

As reported earlier both Federline & Spears are suing for custody of their two sons Sean Preston & Jayden James.
“I don’t know what their situation is or why he wants to get custody of his children other than the fact that he loves them,” Jackson went on to say.

“Maybe, it goes deeper than that. Maybe it’s because of all the press about her mothering.”

When questioned on why the public seems to be reveling in the couple’s break-up, Shar responded by saying, “I think part of it is because whether you know him or not, he has become almost a national joke.”

And never a more fitting expression was coined.



I thought we would check on the newly petitioning for divorce Britney Spears & Kevin Federline to see how they’re managing.  Brit had a fantabulous time the other night ice skating at Rockefeller, and it appears as if K-Fed is taking the text-message-news pretty well.

The welcome-back-to-sanity Spears was spotted Wednesday around 1am heading to a New York City music studio with her manager, who seems to be helping to manage to keep the poor girl on her feet.

While estranged husband Kevin Federline headed to Cabaret club in Chicago after his free, and highly unattended, rap show Wednesday at the House of Blues.  Onstage, K-Fed is quoted as saying, “You wanna dance with a pimp?”

Yep, that sounds like him.  I hope the crowd promptly vomited and walked out, but that’s just my silly, old dreamworld talking there.

Rosario Dawson & Jason Lewis Break-Up

rosario-dawson-jason-lewis-split-11-9-2006.jpgDamn this has been a week of break-ups & goodbyes, and today is no different.  News is in that Sin City actress Rosario Dawson & former Sex and the City star Jason Lewis have called it quits.  The two have been dating since November 2005 and have been living together in Hollywood.

“[Rosario] was telling people a few weeks ago that they’re over. She’s really upset,” a source revealed.

It’s so strange this is happening, as the happy couple were spotted only October 23 enjoying a very long hug outside a Los Angeles restaurant.  TMZ even commented on the extended hug, saying it was “one of the longest celebrity hugs ever caught by a paparazzo’s lens, it’s nice to see young actors so clearly nuts about each other.”

No word as of yet on why Dawson & Lewis have called off their relationship, although in March 2006 Dawson said that it is sometimes very difficult to handle all the attention her boyfriend receives from the ladies.
Dawson stated, “Every time we go to a party, Jason is soon surrounded by a group of women of all ages.  They openly put their hands all over him – even between his legs – and ask him out. I am sitting there alongside him, watching all this.”
“Even I have been surprised by their behavior. Yet I always think it is impossible to shock me.”
Reps for Rosario & Jason had no comment.  What a bleak relationship week this has been!
