BrEaKiNg Up-Is HaRd To Do?!?

First Barbie and Ken then Brad and Jen?!? What is going on! It seems these days that no marriages, especially the closely watched celebrity ones, last. Here is just a taste of some of the recent splits:

Sopranos star Jamie-Lynn DiScala and her manager-husband, A.J., though they have not officially split up, are reportedly "a little shaky." According to People Magazine, the two who are usually connected at the hip have been seen showing up to events solo. Jamie-Lynn reportedly showed up to a New York runway show without her husband and without her wedding ring!

Ex-90210 star Tori Spelling and her husband, Charlie Shanian, have recently called it quits after only 14 months of marriage. According to People Magazine, Spelling has always had an enormous amount of respect for Shanian, cares for him so much and also depends on him for advice. However, marriage was not suited for the two of them and they are better off just being close friends. Interestingly enough, it seems Spelling had developed feelings for her Mind Over Murder co-star Dean McDermott who was also involved with a marriage that was "not working."She denies the claims and insists her feelings for McDermott had nothing to do with the break-up (yeah....sure!), saying the marriage had been going downhill for quite some time. Spelling also reportedly said "she loves him, but she's not in love with him." (Original...very original....haha)

It's goodbye marriage and hello annulment for Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney after four, let me repeat FOUR months of marriage. Almost as quickly as they were able to tie the knot, just like "that" Renee has filed for an annulment citing "fraud" as its grounds (whatever that means!). Kenny, however, really had no idea that this was coming. He knew everything was not as good as it could be but he was definitely not expecting Renee to drop such a bomb. With Renee's acting career and Kenny's music career, was it inevitable? Sources say, however, that Renee supported his career and was present on tour with him 40-50% of the time. According to People Magazine, the two said in a statement that "Renee and Kenny....are saddened that their different objectives prevent the success of this marriage." Personally, I think they are just another couple guilty of the term "fools rush in" and I would just like end with another original, never before heard quote from Mr. Kenny Chesney himself: "I was in love with being in love....."

Just for your personal enjoyment I thought I would refresh everyone's memory of other celeb couples who didn't make it past the 4 month marker:

-Brittany Spears and Jason Alexander(no not the guy from Seinfeld!), 2004 = 54 hours
(I swear I blinked my eyes and they were already annulled!)

-Nicky Hilton and Todd Meister, 2004 = 2 months

-Nicolas Cage and Lisa Marie Presley, 2002 = 3.5 months

-Janet Jackson and James Debarge, 1984 = 4 months

-Colin Farrell and Amelia Warner (whoever that is!), 2001 = 4 months


Lance Armstrong and Sheryl Crow are engaged! "He rowed me out into the middle of the lake in the mountains and asked me to get married, " Crow tells Scoop. All the details are still up in the air and I personally am wondering if he is going to ride his bike down the aisle with her sitting on his lap playing her guitar!

Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards are trying to patch things up after Denise filed for divorce in March. The two have been reportedly spending a lot more time together and Sheen went on Letterman and explained "I was an ass!" Richards is once again wearing her wedding ring and it seems like they are on the right track to reconciling their marital problems.

Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell are engaged and already taking about children?!? According to O'Connell, "Next up is kids!" No alter date has been set but the two are reportedly just "smittin" and crazy about each other.
....Uncle Jesse has yet to comment on the recent news!

Have we been punk'd by Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher?!?! According to People Magazine as reported on the Access Hollywood website, the two tied the knot on Saturday night in Los Angelos. About 100 of the couples' friends, including Moore's second husband, Bruce Willis, attended the ceremony. Moore, 42, and Kutcher, 27, began dating 2 years ago when they met at a New York City dinner in 2003. This is Moore's third marriage and Kutcher's first. I am not really sure how I feel about this one.....but on the topic of older woman marrying younger man, I must say to Demi: "you go girl!"
