Divorce is never something to be taken lightly or laughed at. Being a child of divorce I know this to be very true. However, lately it seems like everyone who is anyone is filing for the big D and it got me thinking, is it the year of the Hollywood divorce?
So far couples which have fallen victim to this horrendous situation have included, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green, and Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale. Of course honourable mention must be given to Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick, because even though they were not married officially they share three children between them and were as good as.
Divorce is a nasty process for even the mere mortals amongst us, but when you have yourself positioned smack bang in the public eye it can seem even worse. Talk about airing ALL of your dirty laundry! So it seems Ben cheated on Jen, with the nanny no less, Miranda didn’t want to have babies and was overbearingly jealous, apparently Gavin may have cheated too, and who knows what the problems were with Megan and Brian. BUT….that is just the point. Who knows? And the answer is none of us. If you are not one of the people in the relationship there is no way you can possibly know the reasons behind something as final as a divorce. Quite frankly speculation is an unhealthy way to satisfy our natural human instinct to be nosy. That’s why we buy all the celebrity gossip mags out there and subscribe to all the latest celebrity gossip websites. So we can know….good god just tell us so we know!!
Whether you believe it to be true or not, the Year of the Hollywood divorce claimed, what was for me, the saddest separation of all….Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog have decided to go their own ways. I just can’t bare the pain, Kermit’s “Rainbow Connection” somehow seems sadder now. I’m still holding out for a reconciliation, you just never know! #foreverlove
