So … Rosie O’Donnell is going through a few changes right now … pretty much all at the same time. After Rosie quit co-hosting The View all those years ago, ABC inexplicably thought it would be a great idea to bring her back as co-host for the current season of the show. Today we learn that Rosie has decided to quit The View — again. Not only is Rosie quitting the TV show but she is also quitting her most recent marriage to Michelle Rounds. They are dunzo. It’s unclear which break-up came first, with The View or with wife Michelle, but it sounds like Rosie is leaving The View to spend time with her children in the wake of the end of her marriage. The positive news, depending on how you look at it, is that Rosie will be starring in a new HBO stand up comedy special titled A Hearfelt Stand Up just one day after she leaves The View. She may be ending a project and a marriage but bully her for starring in a new stand up comedy special. More »
The Death of R-Andy M-Adams :(
Sigh. Earlier today we learned the sad news that Patrick Dempsey and his wife of 15 years have decided to end their marriage and right now we learn that musicians Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams have also decided to end their marriage of 5 years. After the pair started going out in 2008, it looked to me like their relationship might turn out to be a fun fling. Then, in 2009, when they got married it became apparent that R-Andy M-Adams were in it for the long haul. In recent years, the couple haven’t really been seen in public together and they didn’t really talk about their relationship at all so … I guess it’s not a huge shock that their marriage didn’t work. It’s very sad, tho. Even tho they appeared to be an odd couple, I strangely liked Ryan and Mandy together. More »

If you listen carefully, you can hear the sound of a million panties dropping.
For years and years, before watching Grey’s Anatomy, I’d heard the phrases McSteamy and McDreamy and McHottie all over the place, and never knew their true origin. For some reason, I spent the bulk of my last pregnancy binge-watching Grey’s Anatomy, and it was an amazing experience. Discovering Patrick Dempsey AKA McDreamy in 2014? It was incredible. So, it’s definitely sad to hear that this man is getting divorced! It’s kind of like when Halle Berry and Eric Benet got divorced a bajillion years ago—people who are, like, these pop culture icons of perfection getting divorced?! Madness. But these people are real, and real people sometimes go the way of DUNZO. So after 15 years, Jillian Fink has filed for divorce from Dempsey. Click inside for more.
Peace the Spork Out :(
Sad, sad, sad news to pass along, frequent fliers … the iconic airline magazine/catalog SkyMall has filed for bankruptcy in an effort to clear their debt and sell their assets … which means that the magazine is totally dunzo. Boo! I can’t even tell you how much I love SkyMall. I may have blogged about the mag a few times (HERE, HERE and HERE) so, yeah, news of SkyMall‘s demise is a huge bummer for me ;( More »

Also, we have way too many details about this prenup
Sometimes, these kinds of stories can be so weird. I’m reading this article on TMZ like, “Dude! We know way too much here!” It is so bizarre to feel like I know exactly how much Nick Cannon paid for Mariah Carey‘s engagement ring, and exactly how big of a loan he had to take it. It’s crazy. Now that Cannon has officially filed for divorce, and the DUNZO train has pulled off, full steam ahead, I think we’re going to be hearing more very specific details like this. Click inside to find out how Carey could end up paying her ex $500,000.

"It is with great disappointment and regret ..."
Bummer news for fans of the rock band the Black Crowes … according to a statement released by guitarist Rich Robinson, the band has officially broken up. It turns out that there has been some infighting in the band about group membership, stake in the band and of course money and because things have reached an impasse, Robinson says, the band has to break up. I can’t say that I’m the biggest fan of the Black Crowes but I’ve always respected their work and really do like many of their big singles. It’s sad that the group’s legacy has to be tarnished by this messy-sounding break up but … such is rock ‘n roll. More »
They've been living apart for a while now
This has been such a great year for Chris Rock, with his new movie Top Five out, and those great editorials he’s been writing—it’s sad to have to report on this. I don’t see Chris Rock and his wife Malaak-Compton Rock together often, but I always figured it was because they were just incredibly private. And this may be true, but the couple has also been going through a rough time for years now, and they are ready to move on from the relationship. Click inside to learn more.
Earlier this week we learned the sad news that Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter, who were together for 13 years, decided to officially separate after they started growing apart earlier this year. Yesterday, on the morning after Xmas, Tim and Helena put up a united front and came together to take their children out for a post-Xmas lunch. It’s hard to tell if the couple were looking miserable because of the break-up, miserable because of the cold weather or miserable because they always look miserable but … they did look kinda miserable. Hmmm. More »
"They're barely talking", says a source
In September we learned that actress Eva Mendes gave birth to her baby with Ryan Gosling. In November, she revealed the inspiration for their daugther’s name Esmeralda Amada and early this month, she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk a tiny bit about being a new mother. All the while, Ryan has been hard at work on the set of his new movie. Today we are hearing a very troubling rumor that the couple aren’t doing so well in the wake of the birth of their baby because the reportedly estranged couple is “barely talking” to one another. HMMM. Could it be? Could new babydaddy Ryan really be lookin’ to be single again? More »

After 13 years together :(
Very sad news to pass along … it is being reported that director Tim Burton and his actress/muse wife Helena Bonham Carter have decided to split after 13 years together. Ever since the pair met on the set of Planet of the Apes way back in 2001, the couple have been pretty much inseparable … both personally and professionally. According to the statement released by Helena‘s press rep, the couple separated earlier this year and have decided to make the split more official by going public. Ugh. So sad. More »
