After years of speculation that Bethanny Frankel’s marriage was over to Jason Hoppy, she announced to the world today that she has separated from her husband of 2 years. In a statement given to People, she said “It brings me great sadness to say that Jason and I are separating. This was an extremely difficult decision that as a woman and a mother, I have to accept as the best choice for our family. We have love and respect for one another and will continue to amicably co-parent our daughter who is and will always remain our first priority. This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us.”
I am sure she is downing Skinnygirl Cocktails to get her through this tough time.
Mayim Bialik announced on her blog today that her husband Michael Stone, who converted to Judaism for her, and her are getting a divorce after 9 years of marriage. The Big Bang Theory actress released the below statement before the press had their take on it:
After much consideration and soul-searching, Michael and I have arrived at the decision to divorce due to “Irreconcilable Differences.”
Divorce is terribly sad, painful and incomprehensible for children. It is not something we have decided lightly.
The hands-on style of parenting we practice played no role in the changes that led to this decision; relationships are complicated no matter what style of parenting you choose.
The main priority for us now is to make the transition to two loving homes as smooth and painless as possible. Our sons deserve parents committed to their growth and health and that’s what we are focusing on. Our privacy has always been important and is even more so now, and we thank you in advance for respecting it as we negotiate this new terrain.
We will be ok.
The couple have two sons together Miles Roosevelt, 7, and Frederick Heschel, 4.
I am sad that their marriage didn’t work out because they really seemed like they were going to beat the odds.

Sinead O’Connor announced on her website today that she ended her marriage on Christmas Eve, just 16 short days after she walked down a Las Vegas aisle. She wrote a long note saying that people around her husband were not happy with him marrying her and it was too much for him so she “set him free”. She wrote, “From the moment myself and my husband got together not long ago, there was intense pressure placed upon him by certain people in his life, not to be involved with me. These were people who had never met me but had formed opinions of me based on what they read about ‘Sinead ‘O’Connor’ in the media etc. Entitled as they are to their opinions about me many perhaps well deserved, there was no righteousness on anyone’s part to put my husband through what he was put through as a result of his desire to be with me and to marry me and as a result of his actually marrying me.”
She declared throughout the letter over and over again that she loves him, but she couldn’t let him to continue to go through what he was going through. She wrote towards the end of her statement, “Please pray for my lovely husband to be ok and do not worry about me as I have had plenty of practice in these matters. I am in a good place in life. And happy. I believe in and am committed wholeheartedly to happiness. Nothing knocks that. My only concern is that my husband be happy.”
She then concluded her long message with, “so now u can all go ahead and have a great laugh, media wise, and be horrid if u desire to. But that’s my record set straight.”
Since she was so honest about what went wrong and why she decided to end her marriage, I will not give her too much grief about it. So instead I will say “Take that Kim Kardashian.” That’s how you end a marriage so shortly after you began it.
A lot dorky boys are happy today because Zooey Deschanel’s rep told Us Weekly that her two year marriage to Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard is over. The rep gave this statement to the magazine “It was mutual and amicable. There was no third party involved.”
So I guess you can say the New Girls star is looking for a New Guy.
After 3 years of dating the Friday Night Lights have gone dim on Minka Kelly and Derek Jeter’s relationship. A source told Just Jared, “The split was amicable,” and they added “But they remain friends. They still really care for each other.”
I wonder if her filming Charlie’s Angels and being away from him while he is playing for The Yankees had something to do with their split. Whatever the reason, I am sure they will be linked with new people as early as next week. They are both very desired and there are plenty of people who want to run the bases with them.
Chloe Lattanzi was weeks away from getting married, but she called off the wedding because her fiance’ James Driskill reportedly has a wife. The couple that started dating about a year and a half ago and got engaged around November, but Olivia Newton John’s daughter just found out he is married when a mutual friend dropped the bombshell. According to New Idea Driskill has been married to a woman named Nina since 2005.
I can’t believe that he got away with still having a wife for all of this time, and how did his wife Nina not know because their engagement got media attention.
I feel bad for Chloe because that totally sucks to be living a real life movie that you would see on Lifetime Movie Network.
Adrianne Curry and Christopher Knight met on VH1′s The Surreal Life, fell in love and got my married on VH1′s My Fair Brady and split up on their 5th anniversary. The Brady Bunch middle son and America’s Next Top Model first winner released a joint statement to Hollyscoop announcing their separation.
Actor Christopher Knight and his wife, model and television star Adrianne Curry have announced today on their five-year wedding anniversary that they are separating,” Viardo confirmed to Hollyscoop.
After starting a relationship with what seemed to be irreconcilable differences, the couple has reached a period where those differences are no longer appreciated. The decision was mutually reached after it became clear to both that some perspective was needed in order to assess their unique union. Not unlike all marriages, work must be put in.
Obvious to both Knight and Curry was that their marriage would require more effort then a garden-variety relationship. They are taking time to see if they want to continue to put in that extraordinary effort. The couple has mutually determined that they are at a place where moving forward will require a step back. They still love one another but need some distance to consider their future.
Both Knight and Curry decided to release this joint announcement today in order to preempt any potential rumors and gossip and ask that their fans and the media respect their privacy during this delicate period.”
I really thought they were going to beat the reality show odds and make it work, but I guess they are joining a lot of the other reality show couples that ended their marriages before them.
Although their split is kind of shocking, it is not a surprise because Adrianne, who has been an open book, had Tweeted several times that marriage is hard work.
Although Adrianne’s last Tweet makes it seem like her marital pause was a sudden thing, “May 29th, 2006 I married Christopher Anton Knight. Enjoy your weekend! I certainly am!!!” Sad, maybe they will get back together.
Better yet, maybe VH1 will give them a show called How I Will Win My Brady Back?
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver announced they have separated after 25 years of marriage. They released a statement to the LA Times, “This has been a time of great personal and professional transition for each of us. After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion and prayer, we came to this decision together. At this time, we are living apart while we work on the future of our relationship. We are continuing to parent our four children together. They are the light and the center of both of our lives. We ask for compassion and respect from the media and the public.”
I really thought that this was one of the political/Hollywood couples that would last, but I guess not. I really thought if their marriage could survive him being the Governator, it could survive anything. Maybe they will still get back together?
