    it’s not just hollywood marriages that don’t last, marriages in general don’t last.

    another one slips through. Says:

    Maybe the gossip sites and tabs should stop focusing on the “break up” of Brad/Angie and get out there and find some of this stuff out before it is an after thought. .

    They keep missing the boat..

    First Kerr Smith, now JVDB? (Didn’t see ‘em coming!)

    Looks like they don’t wanna wait for their lives to be over!

    Katie’s the next one to split — just wait and see!

    That’s really sad…They had been a couple many years before they got married…

    Brandon, I was thinking the exact same thing…Kerr Smith, James, Katie’s next… Although, I don’t think it’s going to be easy …She has the entire Scientology movement against her if she decides to break up… They will do their worst…
