I’m actually bummed out about this celebrity breakup! People.com is reporting that multi-tasker Ryan Seacrest and dancer turned actress Julianne Hough have decided to throw in the towel on their two year relationship. Dang it! I know you can never place bets on celebrity relationships, but I actually thought the next news we would be hearing from their camps is him putting a ring on it, not the complete opposite. A source “close to the couple” is saying that the reason for the split is simply due to busy work schedules. Well shucks. I’m off to Dairy Queen.

Great news for my one of favorite actresses, Jennifer Aniston – she’s getting married! People.com received confirmation from Justin Theroux’s rep, announcing: “Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage.” Aniston, 43, and Theroux, 41, an actor-screenwriter, have been dating for over a year, and co-starred in the movie Wanderlust together. Congrats to Jennifer and Justin! Maybe we could exchange wedding planning tips?

I have to say this bit of news surprised me – which I can’t say is typical when it comes to celebrity divorces. It was announced today that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are divorcing. People.com broke the news first, and has statements from each lawyer. “This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family,” says Holmes’s attorney Jonathan Wolfe. “Katie’s primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter’s best interest.” From Cruise’s camp: “Kate has filed for divorce and Tom is deeply saddened and is concentrating on his three children. Please allow them their privacy.” The couple married in November 2006 and they have one child together – daughter Suri, 6. Cruise, 49, has been married twice previously, to Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman, with whom he shares two adopted children. This was the first marriage for Holmes, 33.
Anyone else surprised by this news? I know Tom got a lot of flack with jumping on Oprah’s couch announcing his love for Katie, but it seemed like the couple was genuinely in love. Then again, how do we ever know what goes on behind closed doors, especially in the Hollywood.

No! No! No! Well, I’m just devastated. Weekend reports were saying that super couple Heidi Klum and Seal were heading for divorce, but I didn’t want to believe it. Now, I guess I have to. They released this joint statement Monday morning: “While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate. We have had the deepest respect for one another throughout our relationship and continue to love each other very much, but we have grown apart. This is an amicable process and protecting the well-being of our children remains our top priority, especially during this time of transition. We thank our family, friends, and fans for their kind words of support. And for our children’s sake, we appreciate you respecting our privacy.”
Gosh darn it. Klum, 38, and Seal, 48, were married in Mexico in 2005, and held vow renewal ceremonies each year. I loved watching them on Halloween because they always showed up in crazy costumes. When he sang to her on the Victoria Secret fashion show while she strutted in her underwear was beautiful. This was a Hollywood couple that I really held out hope for. What could have gone wrong from them to “grow apart?”
The couple has three biological children – Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2. Klum also has seven-year old daughter Leni from a previous relationship, whom Seal adopted in 2009.

Gonna be a football player? Reality star Kristin Cavallari and NFL quarterback Jay Cutler are expecting! The couple, who called off their engagement in July only to reconcile and announce they were back on in November, broke their baby news to PEOPLE: “We are thrilled to announce we are expecting our first child together. It’s an amazing time in our life and we can’t wait to meet the new addition to our growing family.” This will be the first child for Cavallari, 25, and Cutler, 28.
I was really hoping all the reports on this one was wrong, but turns out another Hollywood couple is heading for splits-ville. People.com has reported that Russell Brand has filed for divorce from Katy Perry in Los Angeles on Friday, citing irreconcilable differences. He said in this in his statement to PEOPLE, “Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.” Perry, 27, and Brand, 36, were married last year in a lavish, fairy-tale wedding in India, and were often gushing about one another and their union. Recently, both stars had been spotted without their wedding rings, and Perry spent the holiday in Hawaii while Brand was in the UK.
Are you as shocked as I am with this news?

Ah, yes, another Hollywood divorce. This one possibly more shocking that Kim Kardashian’s made for TV divorce, but not really giving all the allegations. After six years of marriage, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher are going their separate ways. Moore, 49, says in a statement, “It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton. As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life. This is a trying time for me and my family, and so I would ask for the same compassion and privacy that you would give to anyone going through a similar situation.”
Kutcher, 33, put his two cents in: “I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi. Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail.”
Now, from Demi’s statement, I’m clearly thinking she is saying Ashton did indeed cheat. Back in September of 2010, Brittney Jones, 22, came forward saying she had sex with Ashton. More recently, 22-year-old Sara Leal splashed herself on tabloid covers claiming to have slept with Ashton––on the 6th wedding anniversary of him and Demi, no less.

Who saw this one coming? Oh, right––the majority of America! After Kim Kardashian received her 20.5 carat ring from NBA player Kris Humphries, the reality star and fiancée embarked on their engagement journey––all filmed courtesy of the E! network. When preparations for the wedding began, one could easily tell this couple was just not meant to be. The constant fights, Kim’s prissy attitude compared to the laid-back one Kris showed, the family’s angst against their new addition––who really thought this was going to last? Even the days right before the wedding seemed to be a joke. What I wondered––was it for real, or just a show for the cameras? Now the bigger question––was the whole wedding a joke?
Just 72 days after saying “I do” in a lavish ceremony in Montecito, California in front of 440 guests, Kim Kardashian is filing for divorce. Ryan Seacrest tweeted early today, “Yes @kimkardashian is filing for divorce this morning. I touched base with her, getting a statement in just a few minutes.” TMZ is reporting that Kardashian, 31, will not seek an annulment and plans to cite “irreconcilable differences in her filing.”
If you can’t tell, I’m just grossed out by this whole thing. The preparations that went into it, the time, effort, and money that went into making “Kim’s Fairytale Wedding” are all for a naught. Some “sources” are claiming that Kardashian knew before the wedding that she had made a mistake, but got “caught up” in the wedding planning and the fairytale aspect. How selfish. Usually, I am not this opinionated over celebrities, but this just really rubbed me the wrong way. And for how many viewers and followers Kim and the whole Kardashian family has––how does that look? To me, the message is no matter how much is costs or who it will affect, make sure you have your way. When it doesn’t work, marriage isn’t a big deal––just get a divorce! What a great role model. Then again, this is the same woman who to rose to fame off a sex tape.
Update: Kim and Kris have both released statements. Kim: “After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.”
And Kris: “I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce. I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.”
Hmm…the more I read, the more I’m thinking this is just another wonderful publicity stunt via the minds of the Kardashian’s. Desperate.
How do you feel about the divorce? Did you see it coming? Do you care? Would love to get your thoughts!
