    Why many celebrity couples split after having babies? Look at Miranda and Orlando now.

    @AMY: It won’t ruin their lives forever, don’t be silly. Living apart is better than the children witnessing a loveless marriage or one with many arguments.

    I don’t know why people are quick to dismiss Blind Items, a lot of them are true and get solved, even years later. The only reliable BI site is BlindGossip. They are usually right.

    its not a matter of holding it together. in the average real world, people have no means (money) to leave the other person, thats why it happens alot in hollywood, cause they “can”. dont need to be stuck in a loveless marriage forever like some folks out there. be happy. leave if you gotta.

    Well I’ve lost faith in humanity if these two can’t even stay together.

    Sad, seemed solid. Although Lainey’s blind item kind of prepered me for this.

    Sad :(

    hm Says:

    agree about blind item — just confirmed that there was no other person involved but im sure there was a blind a while back that said he cheated with christina applegate? (i suppose if the cheating didn’t break the marriage up it means that a third party wasn’t involved?)

    @19 Says:

    But not all blind items are creating equal. I honestly think Lainey is about the only one that tends to be spot on. She was right about this, Heidi Klum, Uma Thurman.
    EVERY other blind is the typical story/claim/bs – secret gay, secret **** or drug mule. Only the names change.

    KissThis Says:

    I really don’t think either of them would cheat. Would they? The rumor of him cheating with Christina Applegate seems completely false to me.

    tammi Says:

    @KissThis: i think he did. just because a couple seems happy on the surface doesn’t mean a thing. and now that one blind was solved i’m sure the others about them will be 2.

    This was lainey’s blind item last week! Damn she’s reliable. And according to her no third party involved!

    @A: yes because the third party didn’t break them up.

    Yadahoochie Says:

    You can’t have two successful people in Hollyweird trying to do anything traditional!!! Silly rabbits!!

    Hollywood laughs at marriage and throws your life an eight ball, some hookers, and a cool million bucks and says, “Get the hell out of your stupid marriage, idiot!!” “So speaketh Moloch!!” Then POOF, it’s hooker Fridays and you’re knew deep in blow.

    And you don’t care.

    Yadahoochie Says:

    Christina Applegate isn’t a home-wrecker you tools. The woman beat cancer, you think she’s going to repay that good fortune by wrecking lives??


  43. 43
    alana Says:

    @Yadahoochie: firstly, grow up and secondly no one is calling her a home wrecker, it was on blind gossip which is why every person is phrasing it like a question.. and someone who has/had cancer is incapable of cheating? thats stupid and ignorant.

    So sad, seemed like such an awesome couple.

    Umm…she cheated on her husband. Your point is invalid.
