Is this the woman who made Eva Longoria desperate for a divorce lawyer? Sources tell Us Weekly that Erin Barry, the wife of Tony Parker‘s former San Antonio Spurs teammate Brent Barry, is allegedly the woman who exchanged hundreds of texts with Parker. Supposedly, after discovering the texts on her husband’s phone, Longoria announced yesterday that she is splitting from her husband. The Barrys are currently going through a divorce, too.

Yesterday, we told you that Britney Spears‘ parents, Lynne and Jamie, are back together and happy after getting divorced in 2002. And now we hear that Beyoncé’s parents may have reconciled, too. Tina Knowles filed for divorce from Mathew Knowles last November, after 30 years of marriage, when another woman brought a paternity suit against him, claiming that they’d had an affair and that he’d fathered her baby.

Neither rain, nor sleet, nor the fact that they got divorced in 2002 can keep Lynne and Jamie Spears—aka Britney Spears‘ parents—apart. The two were thought to be donezo, but are now an item once again. A source tells People, “They are back together and are doing well and happy. Not remarried, but back together.”
This week, the Huffington Post launched a groundbreaking new category of content for a news blog or lifestyle magazine: a section devoted to divorce. Chock-full of advice, how-tos (for navigating the holidays, finding a lawyer, breaking it to the kids, etc.), celeb divorce news, and insightful personal essays, there is no dearth of content on the section’s home page. Editor-at-large Nora Ephron and Arianna Huffington cooked up the idea last summer while hanging out in the Hamptons and have been working to bring it to life ever since … Keep reading »
“I call Todd on the cell phone and I say, ‘Todd, you won’t believe this cover!’ And he says, ‘Twenty million? Write me a check.’ He’s good about laughing some of that stuff off.”
I am a young woman in my mid-20s. I started dating my husband when I was 18. We were in a long-distance relationship, but decided to get married this year, and I left the U.S. to be with him. Before we were married, we had a great sex life. Now that I am here, he says he isn’t sexually attracted to me anymore. This may be understandable if I’d gained a lot of weight or my appearance had changed dramatically, but it hasn’t. (I actually LOST nearly 100 lbs. a few years ago). At first, he thought that that he didn’t love me anymore, but we’ve talked extensively about it and he says he does love me, but not sexually … he loves me like a family member, etc. He claims not to be attracted to any other women. For the record, he has extensive anxiety issues, as well as being overweight, etc. We’ve talked to his doctor, who suggests both counseling and testing to see if he has physical problems. He refuses both of these. I love him more than anything and I gave up everything to be with him, but I’ve become extremely depressed and discouraged, being so far from friends or family, with a husband who doesn’t seem to want to be a husband. I try to hide this from everyone, since my husband has already suggested that I would be happier elsewhere and I don’t want my family and friends to worry about something they have no control over. Help me save our marriage! — Sexless Bride
”I don’t know what will happen, but this is not like we’re getting divorced. This is a separation and I think that takes a lot of courage. … Whatever is supposed to happen will be the best thing for us.”
—Courteney Cox speaks about her separation from David Arquette. Sorry we assumed that your separation from David and his alleged rebound chick would lead to a divorce. How silly of us. Que sera it is! [People] Keep reading »
It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “Life Part Deux” the 54-year-old divorced woman whose new boyfriend traveled so much for work, she only saw him once a month for a few days at a time. “I got divorced because I believed I deserved more in a relationship.” She wrote. “Now, I’m thinking that I still deserve more in a relationship … but I’m dreading going through with breaking up and looking for someone else again.” After the jump, find out if she broke up with him.

I’d always been told my engagement ring was special.
“Very high quality,” said my mother-in-law, who bought only high-quality pieces for her collection. “You’re very lucky.”
“You don’t want to know how much I paid for the resetting,” said Joe, my fiance-then-husband.
I didn’t care how much the ring cost, whether it was a hundred bucks or 18 G’s like at Tiffany’s. All I cared was that Joe was finally taking that final step, that after years of disapproval, his family had accepted me. I was finally good enough in his mother’s eyes, and had one of her prized baubles to prove it.
Or so I thought. Keep reading »
For years, stepmothers have complained that “Snow White” cast them in an unflattering light. Pop culture has tried to rehabilitate their reputation, presenting us with such paragons of step-parental virtue as Julie Andrews in “The Sound of Music,” Florence Henderson on “The Brady Bunch,” and Allison Janney in “Juno.”
But in real life, many women find coping with another woman’s child harder than they had hoped. Some balk. Many moan. They form support groups, write articles about their hardships, and even publish books based on their challenging new situation.
While I’m sure parenting your partner’s kids can’t be a cakewalk, I think these women should shut up and wise up. Because no matter how hard it might be to become a step-parent, it’s twice as challenging to gain one. Keep reading »
