Girl Talk: I’m Divorced, Get Over It

This month marks the six-year anniversary of my divorce. A lot has changed since then. I’ve lived on my own (no parents, roommates, boyfriend, or husband). I dated again for the first time in a long time (how long? there was no internet the last time I dated). I changed jobs, got another degree, changed careers, moved across the country. Fell in love again.

I’m happy, extremely so. So why do people still act sorry for me when they hear I’m no longer married and the reason why? Keep reading »

Marc Anthony Erases The J.Lo Stain, Metaphorically And Literally

We were surprised when Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony announced their split on July 15th. We were almost equally surprised when we learned that Marc had a “Jennifer” tattoo on his wrist. Not that it’s such a crazy thing to do, if tattoos are your thing, but we just never noticed the ink. And now we never will. Anthony had covered it up — and quickly, too. The pictures of his new cover-up tattoo are a bit fuzzy and partially obscured by his sleeve, but you can definitely make out that it does not say “Jennifer” anymore. It kind of makes us wonder if things were as amicable as their PR people would like us to believe. We understand wanting to get your ex’s name removed from your body, but within two weeks?

Ryan Reynolds “Came Down With A Slight Case Of Divorce”

“The following month, it snowballed. My hotel room flooded, my dog got sick, I came down with a slight case of divorce, and I broke my pinky finger. I was begging to get out of Atlanta at that point. No offense to Atlanta—it’s a fantastic place—but it really wants my blood.”

Ryan Reynolds talks to Jay Leno about his terrible luck filming “The Change Up” in Atlanta, Georgia. A slight case of divorce? That reminds me of a substitute teacher I had in the fourth grade who referred to the Civil War as “The Unpleasantness Between The States.” Yes, that really happened.

Jennifer Lopez Says She Loved Herself Enough To Leave Marc Anthony

“Sometimes we don’t realize that we are compromising ourselves. To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself—if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me. I love myself enough to walk away from that now … I will always respect Marc as a singer and performer. We work great together, and he was always very supportive. Together we could make magic—and we did. He will always hold a special place in my heart as the father of my children.”

Jennifer Lopez grants Vanity Fair her first interview since splitting with Marc Anthony, and sort-of-kind-of explains what stopped working for her. In the article, she also opens up about her breakup with Ben Affleck. And Diddy. And her first two husbands. But she swears she isn’t getting skeptical about love. More on that, after the jump.

Olivia Wilde Says Her Divorce Has Made Her A Better Actress

“The trauma of the whole thing has been humbling, and for the first time, I’m a little bit wobbly … It makes you a more empathetic person, and I think it’s made me a better actress. Weakness is something we don’t like to admit we have. We hold it against people, until we experience it, and then we feel more compassion for it … ["House" creator David Shore] said ‘You should get divorced every year; your acting’s never been better!’”
