Celebrity Split: Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough

ryan seacrest julianne houghI’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.

Jennifer Aniston Engaged!

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?

Katie Holmes Files For Divorce

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.
