Chelsea and the Round Table Talk Kim Kardashian's Divorce (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 1st 2011 7:00AM
'Chelsea Lately'It was 72 days that didn't change anything. Certainly not Kim Kardashian's last name. But the divorce that everyone is talking about inevitably became the topic of the round table on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!).

Ross Matthews equated their marriage to an episode of 'Glee,' from the point-of-view of someone who likes the show. "I know it's gonna be over soon, but I just don't want it to be," he said.

But we feel that Arden Myrin may have had the most accurate perspective on the whole situation ...

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore Invited to Stay at the 'Divorce Hotel'

by Catherine Lawson, posted Oct 21st 2011 7:15AM
Ashton Kutcher, Demi MooreCougar Couple poster children Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore have been hitting the headlines for all the wrong reasons lately thanks to his alleged infidelity. Now, amid all the divorce speculation comes an offer for the pair to divorce quickly, cheaply and efficiently. The only snag is that it might also be televised.

'The New York Post'
reports that 'Divorce Hotel' managing director Jim Halfens has written to the couple inviting them to be his first stateside guests. Divorce Hotel is a real company in the Netherlands (gotta love those down-to-earth Dutch), which offers affordable quickie divorces in hotels at either a fixed price or by the hour.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Halfens' company -- which is launching in the U.S. in the spring -- caught the eye of a reality TV producer. Mickey Stern ('Mega Cities,' 'Known Universe') says his plans for a 'Divorce Hotel' TV series has attracted interest from several networks, and that the show could be on the air next year. Hey, all those unhappy 'Bachelor' couples could just segue straight over to the 'Divorce Hotel' when they're done.

The Rock Talks About How to Have a Successful Divorce (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Apr 1st 2011 4:30AM
The Rock on 'Piers Morgan Tonight'Three years ago, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson divorced his wife of 11-years Dany Johnson, who was also his manager. She remains his manager to this day, and Johnson told 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (Weeknights, 9PM ET on CNN) about how he was able to go through a rough divorce and then come out with a great, loving relationship with his ex-wife.

"There's a period when we went through a lot of sludge," Johnson explained to Morgan. "I was very fortunate that I had her, who had the wherewithal to say 'Okay, we're going to go through this and it's terrible, but there's somewhere on the other side, if we come out of this, that we're going to become better'."

I have a problem with Don Draper

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 19th 2009 4:02PM
Donald_DraperI'm really, really ticked off with Don Draper. After last night's episode, I'm firmly convinced that Mad Men's Matthew Weiner is out to make Don the biggest jerk around. There are so many things to hate about Don lately, but let's just take a second look at last night's Mad Men episode. Don is practically flaunting his newest dalliance in Betty's face. When she asked him if he was sleeping at home, he said no and used Hilton as an excuse. Does he really think that Betty is that dumb?

Apparently, he does. Or perhaps he thinks that he can talk his way around her even if she were to confront him about cheating on her. Of course, Betty's still obsessed with Henry Francis, so who's she to squawk, right?

Baldwin and Sheen: Inglorious Bastards

by Stephanie Earp, posted Oct 13th 2009 5:01PM

'Working Girl', one of my favourite '80s movies, was on TV the other day, and I sat down to watch Melanie Griffith battle her way to the top of the Manhattan corporate ladder for the umpteenth time. I was mildly and pleasantly surprised when Alec Baldwin turned up on screen - but not just Alec Baldwin - young, gorgeous, whole-future-ahead-of-him Alec Baldwin. Dear Lord, that man attractive when he was younger. I was too young to think about it at the time - I was 11 when 'Working Girl' came out. I only had eyes for My Little Ponys. So I end up drooling over what a man used to look like knowing full well he has aged into something else entirely (see also William Petersen.)

Jon and Kate stop talking to the media, about five years too late (UPDATE)

by Joel Keller, posted Jun 30th 2009 1:02PM
Jon and Kate: Were they split during their Hawaii wedding?According to the New York Daily News, Jon and Kate Gosselin have decided to go in media blackout mode as they figure out their divorce. On the show's page on the TLC web site, the couple released a statement that mentions why they've stopped talking to the media:

"During this very difficult time we will be working to focus solely on the needs of our family. This includes no longer commenting publicly or reacting to media stories and speculation. Our goal is to do the very best for our children and that will be done as privately as possible."

They've even gone so far as to file their divorce in a court that will keep their records sealed. Unfortunately, it all feels like a bunch of "too little too late" moves. If they're trying to protect the children, why did Kate and Jon spend the last four months talking to magazines like People for months on end? Why did they announce their split in front of 10.6 million gawkers (including me)? Why in the hell did they even start their show to begin with?

Jon and Kate: Isn't divorce too harsh?

by Michael Pascua, posted Jun 23rd 2009 2:28PM
Jon and Kate Gosselin do it for the kids.Jon and Kate Gosselin have finally filed for divorce papers, but shouldn't the two of them go through a few steps before getting there? I'm no doctor, but even I could see that getting upset at one moment and then having silence for several months is not a good basis for divorce.

Yes, there are a lot of outlying factors that TLC has not decided to show America. The portrayal of the couple in the whole fifth season shows that the two didn't communicate anymore, unless it's for the children. Shouldn't one fix the communication barrier before cutting the cord completely?

Jon and Kate's special announcement isn't a big surprise

by Joel Keller, posted Jun 22nd 2009 2:50PM
Jon & Kate in A few days ago, we mentioned that TLC was heavily promoting tonight's episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8, pushing the fact that the couple will make a "special announcement" about their crumbling relationship. My colleague Mike Pascua speculated on what was going to happen, but the good folks at Radar Online (who I wrote for occasionally in their pre-Enquirer-owned days) have already latched on to what the announcement is likely going to be.

And, to be honest, it's about the least surprising news you could think of. More after the jump.

What should happen to Jon and Kate?

by Michael Pascua, posted Jun 19th 2009 2:08PM
How ironic is it to see this picture of Jon and Kate Gosselin now?I've wasted many hours of my life watching Jon & Kate plus Eight. We're given yet another promo about a big announcement on the show. Since it's not until Monday, we get the weekend to make speculations.

With a reality show like Jon and Kate plus Eight, one doesn't expect millions of plot twists like Lost so I doubt that we're going to flash forward five years or wake up and realize that it was all a dream. Here is a list of sane and insane announcement ideas that Jon and Kate should announce.

Countess Luann gets a real housewives kick in the butt

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 31st 2009 4:27PM
Luann DeLessepsWell, ain't that a kick in the head? The Real Wives of New York has one less wife on the roster, so it seems. Luann deLesseps has been dumped. The Countess deLesseps -- as she prefers to be called – and her rarely seen Count of a hubby, Alex, have apparently broken up.

While I take no joy in anybody's marriage breaking up, this news is especially ironic in light of this season of Bravo's Real Wives of New York City. Not only has Luann been particularly overconfident about the right way to do things, but she was also prickly as a pear when another wife, Ramona Singer, observed that the Count was twice as old as Luann. The Countess went off like a firecracker when she heard that, and she was not forgiving of Ramona when she offered an apology.

Chris Kattan separates after two months of marriage

by Brad Trechak, posted Aug 23rd 2008 9:34PM
Chris Kattan and Sunshine TuttIn a perfect example of "you never know", Chris Kattan has separated from his wife, model Sunshine Tutt, after two months of marriage. I would have called it "nuptial bliss," but I don't think that qualifies here. This was a quickie, even by Hollywood standards (although they were dating since 2005. I guess the actual wedding was a catalyst for a reexamination of the relationship).

They must have foreseen problems since a prenuptial agreement was signed. Thank goodness there are no children to worry about. Children always make a separation more messy.

This whole announcement came three days after Kattan's rep announced the split, but stated that no divorce was in the works. How quickly things change.

After a two-month wedding, you have to wonder if any romantic feelings were involved at all, or if someone just wanted a career boost. There can be such superficiality and phoniness in Hollywood. It couldn't have been a real marriage like Christopher Knight.

In Plain Sight: Don of the Dead

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 21st 2008 11:41AM
Don of the dead(S01E08) In what might have been one of the stranger episodes, there was a point in the voiceover where Mary comments her clients, Ruth and Don. They're devout Catholics, but they hate each other and want to split. They don't because they cannot get an annulment. When Mary urges them to just get a divorce, saying that as a Catholic she understand them, they say they'll continue to suffer because it's God's will. That's when Mary's VO is, "Okay, too weird for me."

That's how I felt about this show. While it was an interesting examination of a couple facing a dilemma while at the same time being in Witness Protection, there were elements that made me cringe.

'Shenanigans' claimed in Hogan divorce

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 28th 2008 10:28AM
Hulk Hogan and Linda HoganThe Hulkster's soon-to-be-ex is accusing him of trying to pull a fast one on her. Linda Hogan has requested that the judge freeze Hulk Hogan's (real name: Terry Bollea) assets to prevent him from spending the proceeds from the sale of the couple's ten million dollar mansion. She goes further to claim that Terry is trying to dupe her out of other assets from "legal shenanigans".

Hogan is best known as the professional wrestling icon of the 80's. The couple appeared together on the VH1 reality television series Hogan Knows Best. Hulk Hogan can currently be seen on television hosting NBC's American Gladiators.

Brothers and Sisters: Domestic Issues

Sarah Walker and Cooper Whedon(S02E05) "That shrimp smells rancid."-- Kitty Walker

Oooh, this was a painful episode to watch. In a good way. The writing was absolutely spot on for this episode, and it was just beautifully played. Some things happened that I expected and some things that I didn't, which I will get into after the jump. It was the obligatory Halloween episode, but nicely downplayed also. I loved the fact that the minute Nora's back was turned, Justin and Rebecca dove into the candy bowl like a couple of little kids. It was a good juxtaposition to pair Robert's debate with Halloween instead of focusing on the Walkers engaging in a big costume party, as might have happened with this crazy bunch.
