My husband, friend and partner of 16 years and I have decided to get a divorce.
Ty and I have always tried to live the most authentic life possible, and we wanted our separation as husband and wife to be nothing less loving than the way we came together. For some time we have been engaged in a private and difficult, but thoughtful and tender undoing of ourselves. Allowing ourselves the time and space to redefine what we are to each other with love rather than malice.
We have been so aware that it is easiest to use the inertia of anger to leverage two souls apart who have been bound together by so much living. By a child. But we did not want anger to burn the ties that bound us. Instead we have chosen the much more difficult task of undoing ourselves stitch by stitch, and releasing each other with love so that we may take on our new form: dear friends and devoted co-parents of our beloved son Kase. We have no desire to damage ourselves and each other in the process. Who better than each other to bear witness to the heart ache of redefining our family? And who better as ally, while we learn to redraw ourselves in whatever new shape we find as separate people who are still striving to be the best versions of ourselves- as humans and as parents.

As June Carter Cash, country star and wife of Johnny Cash, Jewel can show off both her singing talent and her acting skills. In the clip from “Ring of Fire” after the jump, you can see that Jewel isn’t half bad! Unlike Lindsay Lohan, the singer can actually, you know, carry her role. “Ring Of Fire” premieres Monday, May 27th at 8p.m. Not even Jewel can resist the siren song of a Lifetime biopic!

Breaking news! Notoriously snaggletoothed singer Jewel is sporting a decidedly straighter smile. She tweeted a photo of herself on the set of the upcoming June Carter Cash biopic she’s filming for Lifetime, writing that she now has “perfect teeth.” Given that she never “fixed” her teeth in the years she’s been rich and famous, I’m gonna guess that she’s wearing a mouthpiece and that her snaggle remains unharmed. I’m glad! Jewel is beautiful — and she looks lovely as June — but her crooked smile has always made her unique. Honestly, she almost looks unrecognizable — who knew teeth made such a difference?

A volunteer fire truck slammed into singer Jewel’s car in Stephenville, Texas, on Friday, sending the folk-turned-country star, who is pregnant, to the hospital for tests.
“Jewel was hit by a fire truck this morning in Texas,” her rep said in a statement. “The singer was taken to the hospital and current medical tests conducted indicate that she and the baby are doing fine.”
A local newspaper, The Stephenville Empire-Tribune, ran photos showing Jewel’s completely totaled car, with the bulk of the damage appearing to be in the front and passengers’ side. It’s not clear whether she was driving or in the passenger seat. Read more… Keep reading »
So apparently, back in the late ’90s when ladyfolk were buying up Pieces of You and you couldn’t escape the song “You Were Meant For Me,” people started referring to Jewel as the “chubby Renee Zellweger.” Now, I never heard anyone say this—but Jewel claims it was widespread and that this did serious damage to her self-esteem. “My feelings were so hurt by that, I ended up binging on an entire cake. Afterward, I actually tried to throw it all up, but thankfully I couldn’t do it,” she said. “I had seen so many performers develop eating disorders or try to control their weight with drugs, and I decided I would do no harm to my body.” Eek!
