  • Down with Kate

    I really wanted them to get married. D:

  • LuckyL


  • Natchy

    They broke up in a beautiful way. No insults or put downs.
    That’s what a respectful couple react and say about each other!

    Wish them both the best.

  • Keep it Real

    @busted- you are so right. I think the tabs only keep track of a select few really closely and ignores other celebs unless its at a premiere or award show. There are so many HUGE stars that we see candid pics of just walking around regular without secruity.

  • marissa

    i like them together but nothing lasts in hollywood.

  • marissa

    i liked them together but nothing lasts in hollywood

  • happy girl

    wow. sad. i like that top she is wearing in that photo.

  • …I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    shocking. they were a great couple. did some really good work together.

  • CanadianGal

    aww nooo, i really liked them together! thats too bad :(

  • busted

    I don’t remember seeing them together for a while. When Jim became a grand daddy. nothing from Jenny.. I mean they are such jokers and I would have thought she would have made a statement. But I dont’ really follow them so I could have missed it.

  • Chelsea

    That is nuts.
    Wonder what happened?

  • irksome

    I’m so shocked! I really thought they were go to last……

  • Huverbutt

    oh my gawd, In Touch is outta touch again! best of luck to Jenny and Jim…be prepared for In Smouch’s lies…day short and full of lies. Maybe Life & Styes will get it right? no?

  • busted

    OH I wonder if they announced it today to miss the rags that have gone to press.. smart move. But they will be in the rags next week. The rags need new meat. The Jolie-Pitts are not selling that well anymore.. About time..and the Sandra/Jessie thing is the gift that keeps on giving. Tiger is back on the green and people don’t want to read about that anymore.. They want Tiger to play.. and come Thursday he will.

    so look out couples the rags may be coming for you next.

    Good for them to keep it classy but again neither was a big gossip draw anyway.. this is a SHOCK..but on second thought I don’t think gossip hounds will care that much.. Kate Winslet and her husband barely made a trickle.. I see the same with them.. Shock, Sad..then move on..

    Some couples are just not that fascinating..

  • Rhonda

    did she just make a movie with Tori’s husband Dean McDerment?

  • Marianne

    Aww they seemed so cute. I wonder what was going on? Did they just fall out of love? He doesn’t seem like the person who would pull a Jesse James or something, but they seem to be still friendly with one another.

  • David W

    say whhaaaa, they always seemed like one of the happier hollywood couples…

  • susanee

    Don’t be fooled people

    These two are as phony as they come.. and that is why they could not last together.. Fake fake fake.

    Wait and see.. the truth will come out soon.. then the Shock will beging..

  • haha

    has hsi career hit a low? Announcing a breakup on twitter? really. ridiculous. that’s what that couple from dancing with the stars did. Nobody would even know or care if they didn’t tweet about it. lame

  • miapocca

    that sucks…they are so good together…Can you please work it out…..her son basically grew up with Jim as his dad and they just had a grandbaby..owwww…this sucks!

  • T Pain

    what is wrong with people?!?!

    why can’t they stay together!!!?

  • miapocca

    they are either pullying a prank of some sort or one of them is on drugs and the other wants nothing to do with it!…bet is on Jim..he has had some issues with depression…as most great comics…

  • Venom

    I knew they were fake as hell.
    She went from being a whore and a slut to trying to act like she was Mother Theresa.

  • Lisa2

    Maybe after some time away from each other, they will realize they miss each other too much and get back together. They seemed so right for one another and he was a great father figure for her son Evan. I hope they can work things out……

  • ++Logan++

    why break up, if he’s still the leading man in your life? Doesn’t make sense really…

  • lolol

    @++Logan++: because she has a movie coming out on life time tv that nobody gives a damn about haha

  • Queen bee

    oh well. Jenny is best friefrds with that nasty DU MB BIT CH Chelsea Handler from E!, so I can’t say I feel TOO bad for her. Also, chelsea just broke up with her man, so they are both probably whooping it up!….immature, superficial women like them probably wanted to be single TOGETHER so they could drink and cruise L.A. for new bed-buddies. Chelsea even brags about it!

    …..I love how these so-called ‘wholesome’ and ‘down to earth’ couples are falling left and right, yet the beautifufl couple with six beautiful kids keep getting stalked and accused of all kinds of falsehoods, and tabloids saying that they are ‘divorcing’. UGH!

  • susanee

    Really people. they announced it today. They broke up a while ago and kept it a secret.. so really nothing to be Shocked about. They have not been seen together in MONTHS. funny no RAG cover to track their movements or how many days we didn’t see them together..

    They must have had problems. Maybe during those times when they were telling the world how great the other was.. Jenny is an X play mate..and she has done a lot of Skanky things but of course she got with Carrey so everyone conveniently forgot..

    Well a lot of people didn’t. and Jim is not the prince in shinning armor either. so please they are not different or better then anyone else. and I agree they are both phony and fake.

    His status as an A lister is gone.. His movies suck and she is riding on her son’s condition.. so yep .

    I really think they are both fake.. and yep Handler lost her guy too.. hmm maybe something about why all these women are friends.. I think there is something off about all of them..

    maybe they are bit*ches and it is coming back to haunt them.. I hope so..

    any break up is sad.. but hey what makes them so special.

  • mar

    This is so sad. I really liked Jenny and Jim together. Jim has been so supportive of her and her son. He loves her son like his own and was very committed to Autism, helping and supporting Jenny all the way. Wish them the best.

  • beeeeeep

    Maybe jenny can go back to Playboy or talking parents into not vaccinating their kids

  • Courtney

    @Haha: I thought the same thing, so strange..

  • Diane

    Who gives a #*($*(#)? Chelsea Handler did recently say how she’d like to get with Jim Carrey…even tho he was with her best friend. Maybe it’s been going on all along

  • JANE

    Too bad, they looked like a very strong couple…wish them the best.

  • the truth

    Hate they broke-up they was good couple and was fun to watch. wish them the best.

  • Lenny

    Didn’t see this coming. She just said about two weeks ago that their life together was great. Wow, I guess not.

  • retrobanana

    i thought they had it right they seemed sooo happy…

    you can’t find love in prertty sure of it.

  • cubedweller

    Sad to hear this. They parted with respect, like grownups. Wish them well.

  • cj


  • KC

    Well I really thought they would stay together like Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. I was wrong.

  • AutumnM

    Aww that sucks. I really liked them together.
