Professional Romancer Nicholas Sparks Loses At Romance, Separates From Wife

Nicholas Sparks

Nicholas Sparks, supposed romance expert and author of sappy, formulaic novels-turned-movies like “The Notebook” and “A Walk To Remember” is separating from his wife Cathy and thus has effectively failed at love. Dude, you had one job. The pair has been married for 25 years. They have five children, who am I super bummed out for and who will probably have zero faith in love after comparing their dad’s books to their parents’ actual fate. Sparks has raved about Cathy in the press over the years, claiming she served as inspiration for many of the female characters in his work (like Rachel McAdams’ character in “The Notebook” and Miley Cyrus’ in “The Last Song”) and that he knew within days of meeting her that he’d marry her. The two met on Sparks’ college spring break and sent each other over a hundred love letters during their first few months together. He told HuffPost Live in 2013 that he “married a woman who loves a lot” and that “every female character I’ve ever crafted is a lot like my wife. They’re intelligent and loyal, they’re funny. And most of all, they’re not wishy-washy women. They’re good, solid women.” Well, that changed abruptly. Keep reading »

9 Signs You’re Watching A Nicholas Sparks Movie

http://www.dailydot.com/opinion/signs-youre-watching-nicholas-sparks-movie/?utm_content=9%20signs%20you%27re%20watching%20a%20Nicholas%20Sparks%20movie&utm_medium=syndication&utm_source=The%20Frisky&utm_name=the_frisky

Today, “The Best of Me” hits theaters nationwide, the ninth Nicholas Sparks adaptation to see release (and with two more in development, to boot). A Sparks adaptation has become as perennial and inevitable an event as the changing of seasons, giving appealing blond actresses and chiseled hunks paychecks for years now. The Internet has thrown continuous shade at Sparks’s novels and the movies based on them alike for the many similarities shared among every single one, and with “The Best of Me,” Sparks has actually doubled down, offering the same star-crossed lovers at two different ages for maximum tissue-clutching emotional impact, because sadness works best in bulk.

Brother & Sister Arrested For Having Sex In Church Parking Lot After Watching “The Notebook”

brother sister sex

Nothing stokes the fires of romance like watching the “The Notebook” with your brother in a tractor trailer parked outside a church. That’s how a brother and sister in Gutyon, Georgia, found themselves arrested for incest, aggravated sodomy and prowling early Tuesday morning. Police found the siblings walking around outside a Baptist church and somehow determined they “had just had sex” by their behavior, according to Atlanta’s local CBS News. The siblings admitted to swapping DNA three times while watching “The Notebook.” I have officially lost my appetite for lunch and dinner. Good job, Ryan Gosling?

Ryan Gosling Tried To Kick Rachel McAdams Off “The Notebook”

  • Mind. Blown. According “The Notebook” director Nick Cassavetes, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams didn’t get along during the movie’s filming, and Ryan even tried to have another actress brought in to read lines with him off-camera during a scene. He claimed he and Rachel didn’t have any chemistry (even though they ended up dating for years after the movie’s release). Allie and Noah’s on-again, off-again hysterics in the movie suddenly make way more sense. [Daily Mail UK]

“The Notebook” Recreated By Kittens Is Almost As Good As The Ryan Gosling Version

let's be birds!
Who needs human love when you have cats!?

“The Notebook” may be a favorite this time of year, but after 10 years (yes, 10!), it’s due for an upgrade. Like, say, kittens recreating its greatest moments. Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams may be easy on the eyes, but I guarantee that this feline version of the film will leave you much happier than the end of the original movie. Meow! [Laughing Squid]
