Last week the internet exploded over the news Demi Moore ended her six year marriage to her husband, Ashton Kutcher. For weeks and weeks the press tried to determine the status of their relationship, but only now can we be sure this Hollywood romance finally ran its course. Granted, this isn’t the first (nor will it be the last) celebrity marriage to end in disaster, but that doesn’t mean future couples can’t take preventative measures to make sure their relationship won’t end the same way. So based on Ashton and Demi’s slow decent into marital turmoil, I have taken it upon myself to come up with five warning signs that your marriage is headed for failure. If any of these five factors apply to your marriage, then I’d look into scheduling an emergency session with Dr. Phil ASAP.
Your One Night Stand Outs Your Affair To The Press
Ashton proved yet again that he’s allergic to monogamy after 22-year-old Sara Leal revealed to US Weekly she had an affair with the actor on the eve of his six-year wedding anniversary. While it was entirely possible Leal was just trying to get her 15 minutes of fame, the fact she was able to recount specific details of the night’s events caused quite a bit of speculation about the likelihood of the encounter's truth. And when Demi and Ashton both refused to comment on the allegations, it became obvious their marriage was heading for troubled waters. Let’s remember, this isn’t the first time Ashton was caught cheating (reports surfaced last year Ashton was having an affair with a 21-year-old girl, Brittney Jones, who also came clean to a tabloid magazine). I’m no expert, but I feel like wives don’t appreciate learning about their husband’s indiscretions in the privacy of their own home, let alone on the cover of a tabloid magazine. So word to the (un)wise – young girls will talk about their sexual encounters with movie stars whether they’re getting paid to or not. So smarten up or, like Ashton, you won’t even have a wife to cheat on.
Your Spouse Temporarily Un-follows You On Twitter
Twitter is a great way to communicate with the world, but it can also reveal quite a few intimate details about your personal life. So when Demi temporarily decided to stop following her husband on Twitter, speculation of their separation grew. In this day and age, the social media site allows you to stay in touch with your loved ones 24/7 and lets you know what they’re doing with themselves throughout the course of a day. So when you un-follow someone on Twitter, it suggests you no longer care about that person or how they spend their time. And I think all guys can agree if your wife no longer cares about keeping tabs on you, it’s a really bad sign and a major hint that the big D-word is on the horizon.
Moving Trucks Appear Outside Your House
Shortly after the whole Sara Leal confession came to light, a moving truck was spotted outside Ashton and Demi’s Santa Monica home. Now, moving trucks could easily mean one of two things -- either a couple is using one to move to a new location or someone’s about to find all their stuff piled up on the front lawn. But either way it means a change is about to occur and it might not necessarily be for the better. So if you’ve experienced a similar situation, you may want to start dividing up your stuff before your wife does it for you (and by that I mean, throw all your crap out the window and watching it divide into pieces).
You Lash Out At The Media For Spreading The Truth
What do most people do when they get caught in a lie? They lash out irrationally, which is exactly what Ashton did on his latest video on chime.in. When there were whispers of problems in his marriage, he basically blamed the media for the lack of truth and honesty in the information the press distributes, and claimed it’s up to the public to decide what to believe. While he seemed to be talking about media stories in general, you know he was secretly referring to the rumors involving his marriage. But the funny thing is, the media's "lies" turned out to be completely true, which disproved his assertion that the media consists of liars. So not only did this little chime.in tantrum make him look even more guilty, it made him look like a complete ass as well. I mean, after watching that video would you stay married to the guy?
Your Spouse Confirms To The World What We Already Know
It kind of goes without saying, but when your wife publicly announces to the Associated Press that your marriage is ending, it’s a pretty clear indicator a divorce is heading in your direction. Though the news didn’t come as much of a surprise, it was still nice to have one of them actually acknowledge the situation and put some closure on the matter. Of course, Demi didn't credit Ashton’s affair as the reason why she decided to leave him, but I think it’s pretty obvious at this point. If the thought was on her mind to begin with, this whole ordeal was the deciding factor – it’s too much of a coincidence to not be. So the lesson to be learned from all of this – cheating is bad, so don’t do it. Class dismissed!
In the wake of Sara Leal's confession about her recent affair with Ashton Kutcher, evidence continues to pile up and suggest that Demi Moore is considering ending their marriage. And just yesterday, a moving truck was spotted outside of Ashton and Demi's Santa Monica home and when contacted, the moving company (Wetzel & Sons) said they couldn't comment on anything due to confidentiality. This alone is enough to believe a divorce is in their future, but their representatives still fail to comment on their clients' current relationship status (which is also another clue that all these "marriage in trouble" rumors are actually true).
Obviously Demi is taking the sex scandal news pretty hard, so much so that her eating habits have reportedly changed. A friend recently confessed to US Weekly that the Five director "is superskinny, and it's hard to look at," while another pal admitted "She's very upset, and hasn't been eating. It's taking a toll." It's totally understandable since not only is this a traumatic ordeal, but it's also the main topic of discussion all over the web and tabloids. One could argue, though, that they're kinda doing it to themselves since they refuse to comment on any of what's going on (and cryptic twitter messages don't count). Until they fess up to what's really happening, I'm afraid they're going to be stuck dealing with all the media speculation. Oh the joys of being famous.

After garnering widespread praise (and an Oscar nomination for screenwriting) for his 2000 directorial debut You Can Count on Me Kenneth Lonergan was in-demand. In September 2005 the writer/director began production on a follow-up feature: Margaret which touted Anna Paquin Matt Damon Mark Ruffalo Matthew Broderick Allison Janney as well as legendary filmmakers Sydney Pollack and Anthony Minghella (The English Patient) as producers. The movie wrapped production in a few months time. The buzz was already growing.
Now six years later the movie is finally hitting theaters. So…what took so long?
The journey to this point hasn't been an easy one and it shows. If a film's shot footage is a block of granite and the editing process is the careful carving that turns it into a statuesque work of art Margaret feels like it was attacked by a blind man with a jackhammer. The film is a cinematic disaster a mishmash of shallow characters overwrought politics and sporadic tones. The story follows Lisa Coen (Paquin) a New York teenager who finds herself drowning in chaos after distracting a bus driver (Ruffalo) causing him to hit and kill a pedestrian (Janney). Initially Lisa tells the police it was all an accident but as time passes regret takes hold and the girl embarks on a mission to take down the man she now regards as a culprit. That's just the tip of the iceberg–along the way Lisa deals with everyday teen stuff: falling for her geometry teacher (Damon) combating her anxiety-ridden actress mother losing her virginity dabbling in drugs debating 9/11 and the Iraq War cultivating a relationship with her father in LA and more. There are about eight seasons of television stuffed into Margaret but even a two and a half hour run time can't make it all click.

Ben Stiller wants to give men (and some women) what they've been dreaming about their whole lives -- a chance to see Jennifer Aniston naked. But his generosity doesn't end there...he wants to do this all in the name of charity. Stiller is launching a new foundation that focuses on building schools in areas affected by poverty around the world and while you might think that in itself is a difficult task, the actor's biggest challenge thus far has been finding a name for the charity. He wants something that will grab everyone's attention and give them a reason to donate to such a worthy cause. So what did he come up with? The See Jennifer Aniston Naked Foundation. Sounds promising, right?
Stiller was nice enough to create a funny video where he shows just how supportive the gorgeous actress really is of his charitable efforts and lists some of the other charity names he had thought of before his creative genius took over. Some of the other contenders included: The Derek Zoolander Center for Kids Who Can’t Read Good And Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good and So You Think You Can Donate. While these were good ideas, I'd have to agree that a naked Jennifer would win by a landslide. So check out the video below and start donating!

Instead of school bells, Mark-Paul Gosselaar is about to be hearing wedding bells! Girls all loved the actor as Zack Morris at Bayside High School in the widely popular television show hit Saved by the Bell, but now this hunky actor is taking himself off the market for good. Reports are stating Gosselaar recently got engaged to advertising executive Catriona McGinn. The Franklin & Bash star, whose divorce from Lisa Ann Russell was just finalized in May, proposed to McGinn with a 5 carat cushion-cut diamond ring, custom designed by his friend, jeweler Neil Lane. Looks like Mark is sparing no expense when it comes to his future wife-to-be. If I was her I would have screeched for joy.
Lane commented about his friend's love for the future Mrs. Gosselaar saying, "He couldn't wait to propose...he was so excited to have found the woman of his dreams." The Hollywood hottie already has two children, son Michael, 7, and daughter Ava, 5, from his marriage to Russell, but perhaps an addition to the family will be in order once the engaged couple says 'I do'. Congrats to the happy, soon-to-be-married couple and let's hope second time's the charm!

Oh Mr. Terminator...must you make it so easy to hate you? TMZ caught Arnold Schwarzenegger strutting around in an old gag t-shirt while exercising in Santa Monica on Sunday and it was anything but appropriate. The former California governor wore a shirt that read "I survived Maria" on the back and at the bottom shows the dates "2007-2010", but "2007" is crossed out, replaced with "1977." For anyone not making the connection, "Maria" represents Maria Shriver, his wife of 25 years, whom he began dating back in 1977. The couple are in the process of getting a divorce, so the significance of the t-shirt seems overwhelmingly cruel and too serious of an issue to be making jokes about (click either photo below to see more photos of Mr. Schwarzenegger).
But evidently the t-shirt isn't supposed to be as offensive as it initially appears. Reports are claiming that he received the piece of clothing last November during a farewell party for the Governor's staff and that Shriver's employees actually designed the shirt themselves as a joke, not knowing how ironic it would be months later. The ex-couple seem to be on great terms despite all the drama the actor has caused for his family, but even so -- come on Arnold, the shirt is still a little inappropriate and highly insensitive to the whole situation. Next time, think before you dress.
Ron Weasley who? Emma Watson is already putting the Harry Potter series behind her by starring in the upcoming film The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and apparently getting cozy with co-star Johnny Simmons. One thing I love about celebrity couples is that most of the time it's so predictable. Put two beautiful people on a movie set together, have them hang out all the time and take part in sex and nude scenes and of course they're going to fall for each other. Despite popular belief, Hollywood celebs are human. So we really shouldn't be surprised that a budding romance has started between Watson and Simmons. That's Hollywood for ya!
On Tuesday, the alleged couple stepped out to share a meal together in Santa Monica and were spotted sharing a kiss before heading inside the restaurant. The two were photographed hiking together earlier this summer as well, although the young actress has previously denied rumors that she and Simmons are romantically involved. It's alright Emma, we don't need you to confirm anything. Looks like your lips were doing the talking for you! We'll just have to wait and see if this flame fizzles out once the film wraps. So what do you think -- do they make a cute couple?
I'm noticing a few trends lately with our Hollywood stars. Some celebs are heading back to daytime soap operas and others are trying to take over the White House. I had no idea the bad economy was affecting the entertainment industry so badly -- the stars must be hard up on work. Either way, some of our entertainers are dead set on proving to us that their talents extend outside the acting realm and into the political world.
During an appearance on The Tonight Show yesterday, Roseanne Barr announced that she plans on running for President of the United States in the 2012 election. The actress tells Jay, “I’m totally serious," implying that if Sarah Palin can have a go at the hot seat then pretty much anyone could. Ms. Barr adds, "I want to be part of the debates because I want to represent the tax payer. In fact, I’m choosing the tax payers as my vice president.” Which political party would the actress join? Barr stated, “I’m not for either party because they both suck and they’re both a bunch of criminals. So I made up my own party. It’s the Green Tea Party.” It's thinking like this which is going to put our economy right back on track.
This isn't the first time a celeb has teased about running as a means to increase the ratings of their show -- I'm looking at you Donald Trump. Roseanne recently began her own reality show on Lifetime where cameras follow her around on a Hawaiian nut farm for Roseanne’s Nuts. Let's see if this little promotional technique works in her favor.

Rosario Dawson graces the cover of Shape magazine's August 2011 issue looking as lovely as ever. Although she may have a rocking body herself, the actress discusses in the interview how she hates society's views regarding women's bodies, claiming that it's a form of violence. She also believes women are under too much pressure to lose weight and for no reason other than it's what society expects. Dawson remembers receiving compliments when she lost weight for her role in Rent, the 2005 Broadway musical turned movie, recalling, "I remember everyone asking when I was doing press for the movie, 'What did you do to look so thin? You looked great' and I'm like, 'I looked emaciated'... It's a form of violence, in the way that we look at women and how we expect them to look and be." I have to agree with her -- only in today's society would an actress be complimented for looking so great while playing the role of an HIV-positive, drug addict near death. It's scary.
Dawson doesn't want young girls to get the wrong impression of the human body and what it should look like. The actress claims, "I'm constantly telling girls all the time, 'Everything's airbrushed, everything's retouched. None of us look like that." She adds that she's "grateful to be on the cover of Shape and be able to show myself, my normal self." It's refreshing to know that there are some celebs who aren't all about being fake and trying to convince the world that they're perfect because who could live up to those kinds of standards? Hollywood stars are teens' main source for heroes and idols, something that I think most celebs tend to forget about, so it's nice to know Rosario is a cut above the rest.
Roberts Blossom died of natural causes on July 8th at a Santa Monica nursing home at the age of 87. His daughter, Deborah Blossom, really announced the news to the Los Angeles Times. Now some of you may be thinking "who's that?" and already be looking him up on IMDB to see if you would recognize different things he's been in. Well let me save you the trouble. We all new him as "Old Man Marley", the creepy, misunderstood, snow-shoveling neighbor of the McCallister family in Home Alone.
While Blossom is best remembered for this particular role, he was also in other films such as The Hospital, Slaughterhouse-Five, The Great Gatsby, Escape From Alcatraz, and many more. Now you may be thinking - really the shovel guy? That's right. The actor also starred on Broadway, as well as in television, and also won three Obie Awards for his off-Broadway work. Rest in piece Mr. Blossom...you will always be remember as a hero that saved poor little Kevin from the Wet Bandits.
