It looks like Britney Spears has already started celebrating her split from estranged husband Kevin Federline.Â Tuesday the pop star was spotted ice skating at the Rockafeller Center in New York City.
And who is this new cat you are skating with, Brit?Â Rebound Britney already has an ice skating partner on the go.Â Well, I have to say she looks beautiful, something that I have not been able to say of Ms. Spears since late 2004.Â It looks like she has shed her reptile skin & gotten rid of the trash.Â Way to go, Brit!Â But damn, girl, aren’t your nipples just about to fall off from the cold?

So, we’ve all thought for a good while now that the best thing for Britney Spears would be to get the hell out of Kevin Federline land.Â And it looks like Brit has finally come around to our side of thinking, but why now?Â What happened to the pop star for her to make this step now?Â Why has Britney Spears just now filed for divorce from hubby Kevin Federline?
Well, according to friends close to Spears & K-Fed, the two had a big blowout last week that may have pushed the marriage over the cliff & beyond, leaving it a battered, old thing with barely a heartbeat.Â Did I go overboard there?
Reportedly at a party for Kevin’s new worldly terror, or as other people seem to like to call it, his new album release, Brit & Federline got into it.Â On October 31 in LA at club Xenii while K-Fed was working the crowd, Britney was upstairs, hidden in a dressing room.
Before the Halloween night was over, the black minidress-wearing Spears made a dramatic exit.Â According to once source at the scene,Â “She ran down the stairs crying and stormed out.Â Her eyes were swollen and her eyeliner was smudged. She looked like a complete mess.”Â Did Kevin try running after his upset wife?Â Did dutiful husband run after his love?Â Why, no he did not.Â Surprised?Â Probably not.
Still matters were made worse when Britney started crying in public on November 2 while was dining with a friend at Library.Â An onlooker revealed,Â “She cried on and off the whole meal.”
So, there we have it.Â The days leading up to Britney making the best decision this year.Â Britney, we’re behind you 100% and we are so, so, so happy that you’re back on the sane side of things.

OK, that’s it, bring out the balloons, bring out the singing band, bring out the flowers, bring out the whole damn party for Britney Spears has finally come to her ever-lovin’ senses!Â Tuesday Spears filed for a petition of divorce from husband Kevin Federline in a Los Angeles court.Â The pop star citedÂ “irreconcilable differences” as her reason for such action, although hadÂ I been the judge, I would have been fine with “IÂ finally came toÂ my damn senses,” but that’s just me.
In her petition to the LA courts, SpearsÂ has asked for legal &Â physical custody ofÂ herÂ & K-Fed’s children, 1-year-old Sean Preston &Â 2-month-old Jayden James.Â Britney has also filed for Kevin to receive visitation rights, wellÂ at leastÂ she’sÂ doing this thing right for once.Â
Fortunately for Brit, when the couple married in September 2004,Â sheÂ drew up a tight prenuptial agreement.Â Spears has waived her right to spousal support and has requested thatÂ each party pay for their ownÂ layer’s fees.Â So, no wonder K-Fed is looking for every opportunity to make some cash, did I call that or did I call that?
The actualÂ day of separation isÂ recorded as Monday, the same day Brit made aÂ un-BritlikeÂ surprise appearance onÂ David Letterman.Â I guess she needed a little pick-me-up, and whatÂ better place that David’s?Â
As far as who’s representing Spears in this high-profile divorce, she has hired on powerhouse attorney Laura Wasser whoÂ namesÂ Angelina Jolie, Nick Lachey & Kiefer Sutherland as clients.Â Good luck topping (and trying to pay) for that, K-Fed.
Wow!Â I never thought this day would come, there were rumors, there were whispers, it actually almost happened earlier this year, but now, now, the terrible torture is over!Â Hooray for Britney Spears!Â The woman is finally free & has come around to the good side.Â But I’ll tell you, I think this one’s going to be messy.Â I wonder what’s on Justin Timberlake’s mind?……

64-year-old McCartney & 38-year-old Mills announced their separation in May and began the long road of divorce proceedings in July; the couple have a 3-year-old daughter Beatrice.
“There are certain things in life that are personal, and I think a relationship with a partner is intensely personal, and I prefer to keep it that way,” McCartneyÂ revealed toÂ British Broadcasting Corp. in an interview this weekend.
“When you are going through difficulties, I think the thing to do for the sake of all the people concerned is to keep a certain dignity and remember that it is a private affair, and that way, you will probably get through it better,” Paul went on to say.
McCartney said keeping details of the divorce private would “put less noses out of joint, and I think it is a more dignified way to go about it.”
“Life goes on, I do not hold grudges against anyone, I don’t blame anyone for the sadnesses that have happened to me. I am sad about them because it would stupid to be otherwise.”
“I think life goes on, and it is what you make of it, so I am pretty optimistic.”Â Well, it sounds like Paul has the makings on a pretty good ballad…..

41-year-old comedian Chris Rock has started on his own divorce proceedings from his wife of 10 years, Malaak Compton-Rock.Â Sources state that the comedian has hired a highfalutin divorce attorney to do the dirty job.
Chris & Malaak married in 1996 and have two daughters,Â 4-year-old Lola & 2-year-lld Zahra.Â Â Malaak is the founder & executive directorÂ of StyleWorks, a not-for-profit salonÂ that provides free services for womenÂ quitting welfare and joining the workforce.Â So, a stylist gone charitable.
When contacted Rock’s rep only stated, “I cannot comment at this time.”
The newly single Moakler did her divorce up right at the FIX restaurant located in theÂ Bellagio Hotel & Casino Resort in Las Vegas.Â Well, it looks like this marriage is said & done for.Â Wonder what’s up next for Shanna, as we already know Travis has been a busy boy already with Paris Hilton.Â But really, who hasn’t been a busy boy with Paris?

Meet the Barkers Shanna Moakler is throwing herself a divorce party today at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.Â Moakler & Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker separated in August and have been battling the divorce front ever since.
Barker was forwarded the divorce party invitation and left a rather nasty little message on his MySpace page.
“SOMEBODY SENT A MESSAGE AND A FLYER WAS ATTATCHED (I POSTED IT BELOW). SHANNA IS HAVING A DIVORCE PARTY FOR HERSELF IN CELEBRATION OF OUR FAILED MARRIAGE APPARENTLYâ€¦.. THIS IS THE SAME WIFE THAT EMAILED ME TO TELL ME SHE WOULD BE SLEEPING WITH HER NEW BOYFRIEND IN MY BED THE DAY OF OUR ANNIVERSARY 2 DAYS AGO SO THIS DOESNâ€™T COME AS A SHOCK. AND THE SAME PERSON WHO IS MAKING â€œI LOVE SHANNAâ€ SHIRTS FOR PEOPLE TO BUY, IN SUPPORT OF ALL THIS AND PLAYING THE VICTIM, IT SADDENS ME PEOPLE AND EVEN BRINGS ON THE URGE TO PUKE, HOPE IT DOES YOU AS WELL. IM GONNA SAY A LONG PRAYER FOR HER, SHE NEEDS IT. THERE ISNâ€™T A PART OF SHANNA AND I AND THE FACT OUR MARRIAGE FAILED THAT I COULD BE CELEBRATING OR HAPPY ABOUT EVEN AFTER ALL OF THIS TIME IT WAS OUR FAMILYâ€¦IT WAS ALL WE HADâ€¦â€¦I MEAN A PARTY??? WHAT DOESNâ€™T KILL ME MAKES ME STRONGER:) GOODNIGHT AND MAY THE FORCE BE WITH Uâ€¦.STAR WARS IS ON AND THIS IS NOW IN THE PAST. HOPE SHANNAâ€™S PARTY IS EVERYTHING SHE COULD HOPE 4.”
Hmmm, those are someÂ strong words for a gentleman who was seen making out with Paris HiltonÂ at the Playboy Halloween party (see picture)Â just yards away from Shanna.Â
Who would have thunk it that Travis Barker would be lecturing on the sensitivities of matters of the heart.
The financial blow will be forÂ 30-year-old Witherspoon who surpassed Julia Roberts earlier this year as the highest paid actress in Hollywood.Â Reese makes aboutÂ $29 million a movie, while 32-year-old Ryan makes aÂ piddly $2.5 million per film.
Ryan will be reaping the benefits as under California law, withoutÂ your safety-netÂ prenup, earningsÂ are divided up 50/50.Â Ouch!Â But then again, with all this talk of Ryan’s infidelity, maybe Reese will be able to screw him nonetheless, ’cause it looks like he’s done his fair share of screwing this year.

Poor Reese Witherspoon, she looks so deflated, unhappy & angry all at the same time in these new Flags of Our Fathers premiere pictures.Â The news of Witherspoon & Phillippe separating after seven years of marriage has everyone talking about why.
With all these rumors circulating about Ryan cheating on the Southern star, no wonder the kid has her chin down.Â Poor Reese, chin up.
Back in 2004, Reese gave some insight into her & Phillippe’s relationship, “We’re still trying to figure out the mystery of marriage.”
“It isn’t one happy joy-ride, and I so admire couples who’ve been together forever. Ryan and I were practically babies when we met, and then we were having babies. But we’ve matured a lot. I’ve become less judgmental and more understanding. He helps me find the good in people and the best parts of myself, and we’ve really discovered balance.”
And now they’ve discovered divorce.Â One more down the drain.
Now that the news has been affirmed that Reese & Ryan are over, now we are left asking ourselves why.Â And don’t you know the rumor mill is already a-churning out some juicy ones.Â The word on the street is that Ryan Phillippe cheated on wife Reese Witherspoon with several blondes while on location for Flags of Our Fathers.
I have more hope for Ryan than this, but that’s where the evidence is pointing as of right now.Â Oh, Ryan, you little cheeky bastard.Â
What do you think, did Ryan diss the Reese for some dumb blondes along the road?

Well, it’s finally be confirmed.Â One of the most adorable couples Hollywood has ever seen is calling it quits.Â Reese Witherspoon & Ryan Phillippe have decided to separate after seven years of marriage & two children.Â Â
A rep for the couple stated, “We are saddened to announce that Reese and Ryan have decided to formally separate.”
“They remain committed to their family and we ask that you please respect their privacy and the safety of their children at this time.” TMZ.com first reported the couple’s split.
30-year-old Witherspoon & 32-year-old Phillippe have two children together, Ava, 7 & Deacon, 3.Â The couple met when a mutual friend brought Ryan to Witherspoon’s 21st birthday party.Â Two years later, afterÂ the two co-starred in Cruel Intentions, Phillippe proposed to the New Orleans native; they married inÂ June of 1999 & had Ava three months later.Â Â So this getting pregnant before marriage thing is reallyÂ catching on.Â Maybe I should give it a go.Â
You know, IÂ thought (despite the rumors) that Reese & Ryan were doing so well.Â It just goes to show you that the divorce bug can bite just about anyone.

As reported in quite length earlier, Heather Mills made some startling allegations regarding estranged husband Paul McCartney.Â Mills has alleged that McCartney wasÂ physically &Â emotionallyÂ abusive,Â used drugs,Â tried to strangle her andÂ was basically a big, huge meanie-pants.
Paul hasÂ come outÂ with a statement regarding these allegations, and to be honest it’s a little on theÂ weak side.Â
McCartney’s repsÂ stated “Our client would very much like to respond in public and in detail to the allegations made recently against him by his wife and published in the press but he recognizes, on advice, that the only correct forum for his response to the allegations made against him is in the current divorce proceedings.”
Will Paul take this slander lying down?Â Reps went on to state, “Our client will be defending these allegations vigorously and appropriately.”Â So, no, apparently Paul is ready for a fight.
So, either Heather is an evil bitch, Paul is a huge asshole, or a little of both.Â What do you think?

As posted earlier, Dancing with the Stars ex-contestantÂ & country singer Sara Evans recently announced that she was filing for divorce from her husband of 13 years, Craig Schelske.Â After making the statement that she was leaving the dancing show, Evans turned her attention to her family.
Apparently just hours before Evans was to perform on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, Evans learned about some racy allegations regarding 43-year-old Schelske.Â Â I suspect that Evans learned about those 100 photographs that Craig took of himself naked (for some off reason) and perhaps that Craig’s list anal sex add.
“It’s a blur,” Evans stated regarding the recent events.
“The good thing is that I’m so used to performing, as you know, that as an entertainer, we just have the ability to just try to flip the switch, turn it on, do the dance and make it through the day.”
Evans had considered divorce earlier this year and even begun filing paperwork, but she was trying to take it slow, thinking about her children.
Sara revealed, “It was always my intention to try to take things slowly.Â My intention was to try everything that was in my power [to save the marriage].”
“It’s very personal and very traumatic and very hard for my children.Â Things drastically went downhill at 100 miles an hour.”
We wish both parties luck & more love in the future.
In court documents filed by ex-model Mills, Heather is claiming that McCartney was physically & emotionally violet towards her, took drugs as well as forbade her to breastfeed their baby during the marriage.Â
Here’s what Us Weekly broke down forÂ us regarding the abuse,Â check it out.
October 2002: McCartney loudly pointed out that Mills was in a bad mood, in front of other people. When they returned home McCartney and Mills began to argue about the McCartneyâ€™s behaviour. McCartney grabbed Mills by the neck and pushed her over a coffee table. He then went outside and, in his drunken state, fell down a hill, cutting his arm.
May 2003: The couple were in a hotel in Rome when McCartney behaved coldly towards Mills, who was pregnant and who was distressed by a derogatory newspaper article about her. An argument ensued in which McCartney became angry and pushed Mills into the bath. Mills suffered distress but was made to go to McCartneyâ€™s evening concert.
May 2003: Following the concert, in a fit of pique because Mills refused to go to the aftershow party, McCartney directed a female bodyguard to abandon Mills, leaving her exposed to hordes of fans. The respondent was forced to take a 30 minute walk back to the hotel because no taxi was available.
August 2003: In Long Island, Mills asked McCartney if he had been smoking marijuana. He became angry, grabbed her neck and started choking her.
October 2003: McCartney often told Mills when she was pregnant that he did not want her to breast-feed their child, making the comment “they are my breasts” and “I don’t want a mouthful of breast milk”.
November 2003: McCartney required Mills to defer an essential operation on her leg because it would have interfered with holiday plans.
December 2003: Mills had a broken pelvic plate McCartney insisted that she cook for him while she was on crutches, could barely move and was in agony.
Mid-November 2004: McCartney failed to protect Mills from adverse press reports despite being in a position to do so. Mills was warned that a forthcoming article about her was about to come out in The Sunday Times magazine and included the line: “The best thing that ever happened to Heather Mills McCartney was losing her leg” which was distressing.
As McCartney had been asked to participate in the half-time entertainment for the Superbowl on Fox TV owned by Rupert Murdoch (who also owns The Sunday Times), Mills asked McCartney to tell Rupert Murdoch that he would not confirm his participation in the Superbowl unless he agreed not to run the story. McCartney refused to assist in this way.
September/October 2005: McCartney called Mills an “ungrateful bitch” in front of their driver when she explained why an office he had provided was not right for her. Having refused to allow Mills to use his spare office on the floor beneath their apartment, which would have allowed for a creche in one part of the office, McCartney had insisted she use an office that was far too small and was 20 minutes walk away. When Mills went to view it, she was chased by paparazzi and was so demoralised by the experience she never used the office.
April 2006: Shortly after Millsâ€™ revision amputation surgery she was forced to crawl on her hands and knees up aeroplane steps because they were not wide enough to take her wheelchair. McCartney had assured Mills he had taken care of her disability needs in connection with the trip.
April 2006: An argument occurred during which McCartney poured a bottle of red wine over Millsâ€™ head and then threw what remained in his wine glass at her.
McCartney then reached to grab Millsâ€™ wine glass, and broke the bowl of the glass from the stem. He then lunged at the Mills with the sharp stem of the glass, which cut and pierced the Millsâ€™ arm just below the elbow causing her to bleed profusely. He proceeded to manhandle Mills, flinging her into her wheelchair and wheeling it outside, screaming at her to apologize for “winding him up”.
April 2006: Mills asked McCartney not to leave her alone with their daughter Beatrice at the Cabin (because it is isolated in a forest). She had just had surgery on her leg, was in a wheelchair, and was anxious about her ability to cope by herself. Notwithstanding this, he walked off. Mills then telephoned McCartney, and asked him to return. McCartney mocked her pleas, mimicking the voice of a nagging spouse, and refused to return.
April 2006: It is alleged that Mills found McCartney staggering, undressed him and ran the bath and helped him into it. She then phoned the McCartneyâ€™s psychiatrist for advice and was told not to attempt to move him, to get a duvet and two pillows, to empty the bath of water, cover him, and leave him there.
Mills thereupon dragged herself upstairs, on her hands and knees (she was unable to wear her prosthetic leg as the wound from surgery had not yet healed) and brought back down the pillows. She found that McCartney had vomited on himself. She rinsed him off, and got him out the bath. At that time Mills had a broken plate in her pelvis and she was in agony.
April 2006: On April 27 Mills knew McCartney would be too hungover to help her with Beatrice and due to her own incapacity as a result of an operation, she had to call the babysitter to help get Beatrice to nursery.
The following day McCartney went to London but said he would be back in time to help the put Beatrice to bed. He did not arrive back at her bedtime even though he knew Mills could not cope on her own. McCartney arrived home drunk and demanded dinner and called the respondent a nag.
That evening Mills realized the marriage had irretrievably broken down and left, crawling on her hands and knees while dragging her wheelchair, crutches and basic personal possessions to the car.
No date given: Mills asked McCartney if she could buy an antique bedpan to keep under the bed at night so she wouldn’t have to crawl to the bathroom when her prosthetic leg was not fitted. McCartney objected, saying it would be like being in “an old woman’s home.”
Jeez, that was a load of badness, I’m glad to see you made it through without a scratch.Â So, what do you think- is all this true, is Paul McCartney the biggest asshole of them all?

As we reported Friday, Dancing with the Stars contestant & country singer Sara EvansÂ filed for divorce from her husband of 13 years, Craig Schelske.Â After making the announcement that she would be dropping out of Dancing for personal reasons, the country singer went on to state that she was divorcing her husband & needed to concentrate on her children and take time off the show.
Evans went on to state that Schelske had a porn problem as well as a tendency to sleep around & take pictures of himself naked, about 100 nude pictures to be exact.
Now it’s Craig Schelske’s turn to do the talking, here he is now.
“I have made the decision to forgive Sara for the unfortunate campaign that she and her publicity advisors are currently waging,” Schelske said in a statement.
“Sara has unfortunately become a dramatically different person over the last year and it is something we have struggled to deal with. Sadly, it appears we have failed.”
Wow, strong words.Â It’s going to be interesting to see how this one plays out.

After a two-year steady relationship, Nicky Hilton has apparently dumped actor Kevin Connolly.Â
A Hilton rep was at the ready with a statement,Â “They’re no longer a couple.”
23-year-old Hilton & 32-year-oldÂ Entourage star Connolly began dating in 2004,Â just a few weeks after Hilton annulled three-month long marriage to NewÂ York businessman Todd Meister.
According to aÂ friend of Hilton’s, NickyÂ “dumped” Kevin Monday because she suspected that the boy had been unfaithful. A rep for ConnollyÂ was unable to be reached for comment.
A 32-year-old man cheating on aÂ 23-year-old Hilton?Â What the hell was the boy thinking?

As reported on Friday, Dancing with the Stars contestant & country singer Sara Evans has filed for divorce from her husband of 13 years, Craig Schelske.Â After making the announcement that she would be dropping out of Dancing for personal reasons, the country singer went on to state that she was divorcing her husband & needed to concentrate on her children and take time off the show.
35-year-old Evans filed for divorce in Franklin, TN where the couple & their three children reside.Â Evans & Schelske have been married since 1993.Â 43-year-old Schelske ran for Congress as a Republican from Oregon’s 5th District in 2002.
A source reveals Evans’ reason behind the divorce, “Her husband has had a long time porn problem. He’s addicted to web porn and it’s been a strong source of contention in their marriage.Â She very recently found out that he had struck up a relationship with another woman he met on the Internet and began having an affair.”
“Sara is devastated, this has left her breathless, and all she can think about is getting back to her children.â€
In the divorce papers, Evans alleges that husband Craig SchelskeÂ committed adultery, was verbally & emotionally abusive andÂ drank excessively.Â Sara goes on to allege that her husbandÂ “frequently watches pornography” & has “at least 100 photographsâ€ of himself posedÂ in a sexual wayÂ on top ofÂ “several photographs showing [Schelske] having sex with other women.” EvansÂ apparently also sharedÂ Schelske’s postings on CraigsList where heÂ requested “three party sex and anal sex.”
Wow.Â 100 pictures of himself!?Â The man has a lot of time on his hands, and maybe something else too.
Evans is seeking child custody, possession of their TennesseeÂ home, as well asÂ child support.
She better get the money while she can, I’m thinking Schelske’s political career may just about be over.
Dancing with the Stars contestant Sara Evans, as posted earlier, will be leaving the show for personal reasons.Â The country singer’s representative hasÂ come forward to comment on the unexpected departure.
Evans announced Thursday that she was leaving the show, asÂ she was filing for divorce fromÂ husbandÂ Craig Schelske.Â The couple live in Williamson County, Tennessee and the singer needs to draw her strength & energy to concentrate on the divorce.
Evans’ rep stated, “Recent events that shed light on the status of her marriage prompted Ms. Evans to make the filing.”
“Ms. Evans hopes that her fans and TV viewers who’ve supported her in recent weeks and throughout her music career will respect and understand her need for privacy in the face of these recent events,” her rep went on to say.
35-year-old Evans & Schelsk have been married since 1993Â & have three children together.
Poor Sara, hopefully she can get back on her dancing feet soon.
