It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate. We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate. We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been. We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner.
Gwyneth & Chris
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin just announced in a joint statement that they have decided to separate — “consciously uncouple” — after 10 years of marriage. While I have been known to snark on Gwyneth quite a bit — and was admittedly oh-so-tempted by the phrase “consciously uncouple,” because it is just so GOOP — I appreciate the thoughtfulness of this statement and admire their mutual dedication to their children and respect for each other.

While divorce may be something families dread, supermodel Heidi Klum prefers to look at the silver lining.
“Did I wish for this to happen to my family? No,” Heidi Klum told Marie Claire about her divorce from Seal. “But everyone is healthy. We’re moving on with our lives. If someone got [very sick] — god forbid — that would be a real problem. It’s not what I wanted. It’s not what anyone wanted. But it’s not a real problem.”
Klum, who filed for divorce last April after seven years with Seal, is now dating her bodyguard Martin Kirsten — who is close to her age. At 39, Klum has no intentions of becoming a ”cougar.” Read more…
Every once in a blue moon a Hollywood couple confirms a split and it’s absolutely baffling. This morning a rep for Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman confirmed that the couple has already separated and is living very single lives. I think they are one of the few couples in the business that you actually kind of forgot about because you never heard a rumble of any trouble! Plus, they raised three kids in Tinseltown where most relationships, not even marriages make it under the standard two years! That alone earns them a spot in Hollywood private life history.
This split is just bizarre because Danny and Rhea have been together forever or at least for 40 years! They met in 1970 when Rhea went to see an off-Broadway play that Danny was starring in and that was it, the two then lived together for eleven years before finally tying the knot in 1982. Read more…
