Love Is Actually Dead: Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt Split After 18 Years

Love, in all its many-splendored and mellifluous glory, is actually dead: Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt have confirmed that they have broken up, after an 18-year relationship. In a statement to People, they said:

“With great sadness, we have decided to separate, after 18 years of love and shared history…We will continue to be supportive of each other in every way possible moving forward.”

Here’s a fun Labor Day weekend story… We just decided to add two new members to our Johnson family. Baby French Bulldogs. In my right hand is BRUTUS and in my left hand is HOBBS. Bring them home and immediately take them outside so they can start learning how to “handle their business and potty like big boys”. I set them both down and they both take off in a full sprint and fall right into the deep end of our pool. HOBBS immediately starts doggy paddling while BRUTUS (like a brick) sink heads first to the bottom of the pool. I take off into a full sprint, fully clothed, dive in the pool, swim to the bottom, rescue my brick, I mean BRUTUS and bring him back to the edge of the pool. He was a little delirious.. took a moment, threw up all the water he swallowed and looked up at me as if to say, “Thank God you didn’t have to give me mouth to mouth!” and then ran off to play with his brother. A few lessons I’ve learned today.. A) Not all puppies have the instinct to doggie paddle. B) Some puppies (like BRUTUS) will be so in shock by experiencing water they will sink extremely fast so react quick. C) While spiriting to save your puppies life, before you dive in, try and throw your cel phone to safety. Don’t keep it in your pocket… like I did. #BRUTUSLives #HOBBSCanSwim #MyCelPhonesDead #AndNoMouthToMouthNeeded #HappyLaborDay

As per this very long and unwieldy Instagram caption, The Rock bravely dove into his very nice family pool to save his new puppies, Brutus and Hobbs. Alternately, here is The Rock in a wet t-shirt, proving to me that this is the only outfit he needs to wear, ever, for the rest of his days. [Complex]

Hey, Kanye smiles sometimes, but it is mostly when he’s pushing his precious jewel of a daughter in a baby carriage. Here is a bonus photo of North West, dressed like Kanye, because she is 100% the best celebrity baby in the game. [Us Magazine]

Caitlyn Jenner is the guest on “Ellen”‘s 13th season premiere. Watch as she talks about her “traditionalist” values and also jokes about how she maybe had “too many kids”. Rude, Caitlyn. [EllenTube]

Dr. Walter Palmer, the lion-killing dentist, went back to work where he was greeted by protestors, news cameras and notes stuck to the front of his practice that said “Justice For Cecil #extradition”. That is what you get for killing a lion, sir. [Daily Mail]
