Might as well face it, you’re addicted to love!
OK, so some of my younger readers not get that reference (and if you don’t, here you go), but according to Grazia Daily, our beloved Rihanna might be addicted to love–specifically, Chris Brown’s love.
(If you’ll remember, Rihanna and Chris Brown began dating in 2006, but split up after Brown assaulted her after a pre-Grammy party in 2009. Since then, their on-again, off-again relationship has been a roller coaster of restraining orders, anger management, probation appearances, and tense media interviews.)
Reportedly, Rihanna is considering spending a six-week break from her current Diamonds World Tour getting some relationship and sexual recovery, or what the media are referring to as love therapy and love rehab.
Glad David Arquette didn’t get bumped off “Dancing With the Stars” last week?
Well, you might get to see even more of him.
According to TVLine.com’s Michael Ausiello, via their production company Coquette Productions, Arquette and his soon-to-be (I’m guessing; they seem to spend more time together than another estranged couple I know) ex-wife Courtney Cox are working on a new show together.
The tentatively titled “10 Years” will be a comedy that “explores the ups and downs of relationships across a group of friends, spanning 10 years.”
I’m guessing she can’t get an official “fresh start” until the matter of the felony grand theft charge is taken care of, but to help get that New Beginning Ball rolling, Lindsay Lohan is joining the ranks of Madonna, Beyonce, and Cher, and becoming…
As in, just Lindsay. No more Lohan. No more LiLo. She’s dropping her last name (and, according to PopEater.com, years and years of Irish heritage) as a way to “start over.”
(According to a family friend, Lindsay’s mom Dina Lohan and sister Ali Lohan want to start over, too. The two will not, however, be going the single moniker route; they are changing their last names to Dina’s maiden name, Sullivan. Reportedly, no one wants to be affiliated with Michael Lohan anymore.)
Naturally, there are some naysayers and critics, which is understandable because – let’s face it – Madonna, Beyonce, and Cher she is not, but I get it.
I mean, don’t most – if not all – of us understand the need for a fresh start?
I can see how changing or altering one’s name might be one step in that direction.
Just one step, mind you.
How about some of you? What are some of the things you’ve done to get a fresh start? What advice would you offer others looking to do the same thing?
It might be a rumor, but I hear Katy Perry and Russell Brand could be headed for marriage counseling.
Unlike the dissolving marriage of Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz, there’s not yet any concrete evidence to make this anything more than a rumor.
OK! Magazine thinks certain recent tweets of Perry’s might contradict the rumor. Also, Perry gave the world a few glimpses of her wedding videos last night during her Grammys performance, which could go several ways (maybe she’s trying to combat rumors? maybe she’s trying to reconnect with Brand?).
Still, Life & Style reports an insider claims Perry is asking for marriage counselor recommendations.
If it’s true, there’s some comfort in the mention of marriage counseling, i.e. the two aren’t just throwing in the towel after only a few months of being married. There’s a lot to be said for that.
Are you, or have you ever been, married? Do you have any experience with marriage counseling (or wish that you did)? What advice or words to ponder would you offer the celebrity newlyweds?
