Just yesterday news broke that Arnold Schwarzenegger And Maria Shriver had separated after she got tired of being basically being neglected by him and it’s reported that he already wants her back and is willing to change.
But first, Arnold was doing a speech during the 63rd Israel Independence Day Celebration in Los Angeles last night when he decided to take a moment to speak about the news of their separation. Here is what he said:
“I just spoke to Maria an hour ago before I came here. We both were saying the same thing – we’re extremely blessed to be surrounded by so many wonderful people, by so many wonderful friends. We both love each other very much. We’re very fortunate to have four extraordinary children. And we’re taking it one day at a time. The bottom line is we want to thank all the people for their great, great support.”
TMZ are reporting that Arnold has realized that he is the reason behind the whole separation and he is now willing to change his behavior, a source close to the couple said “Arnold has done a 180. He’s been really sweet to her since all this went down.”
But this is how it always goes, the person whose fault the whole break up is says they realize how they need to change and then when they do get back together the person goes right back to being what they were the whole time.
I guess time will tell if Maria is willing to take him back but apparently they were recently spotted at a hotel in Los Angeles for a special occasion.

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver have announced they have separated after 25-years of marriage and being one of Hollywood’s most powerful couples. The couple released a joint statement that read:
“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 consider this a private matter and neither we nor any of our friends or family will have further comment. We ask for compassion and respect from the media and the public.”
Reasons for the separation were unknown at first but TMZ have managed to contact sources close to the couple who say that Maria has been sick of the marriage for sometime now because of Arnold basically being crazy.
The source says that Maria moved out of their home ins Los Angeles a couple of months ago after being unhappy for a few years from his craziness and him neglecting her. The source finished up saying “she’s a lost soul”.
Is it just me that finds this marriage ending kind of sad? I actually thought they would last, but I guess in Hollywood nothing lasts.
Crap hit the fan yesterday as Ashlee Simpson filed for divorce from her husband, Pete Wentz. He wasn’t thinking about divorce at all. Actually, he was making plans on how they would spend their Valentine’s Day together.
Yes, this is an old picture of the happy couple. She’s tramping it up for him as she always has. When they first got together, she flashed him her boobs and he said he was in love.
Everything in their little emo world fell apart yesterday, but not because Pete wanted it to. It started as a he said/she said thing. She said that Pete was erratic, and he called BS on that, saying that they just grew apart.
Pete also went on to say that this is not something he wanted and that he was totally blindsided in the divorce.
Above, you can see Pete getting down and dirty in a lap dance with Ashlee. You caption it!

Well yet another celebrity couple bites the dust because Ashlee Simpson has filed for divorce from Pete Wentz after just two and a half years of marriage.
TMZ reports that Ashlee filed for divorce and cites “irreconcilable differences” as the reason she wants to get rid of him, she is asking for joint legal custody and primary physical custody as well as asking for spousal and child support from him. They both released a statement saying…
“After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to file for divorce, we remain friends and deeply committed and loving parents to our son Bronx, whose happiness and well-being remains our No. 1 priority. We ask that everyone honor our privacy as we navigate this next phase of our lives.”
TMZ follows up by saying there was no third party involved in the split and the reason they are divorcing is because they grew apart. A source says that she basically wanted out of show business after giving birth to their son, but he wanted to keep on with torturing us by making music.
Seeing as how her father is Joe Simpson I’m going to guess that this divorce will start getting messy by the weekend.
Olivia Wilde is now a single woman because she and her husband, Italian prince Tao Ruspoli, have officially separated after eight years of marriage.
I never even knew that she married, let alone to an Italian prince, but they eloped back when she was 18-years-old. A source told People that “they have been living apart after trying for quite some time to make their relationship work.”
I’d say there is a chance for us regular folks to get her now but let’s face it if an Italian prince can’t keep her happy then how the hell are we supposed to do it? I suppose we can live in hope.
As we all know in Hollywood celebrities get married and divorce all the time, but there are some who really take the biscuit and have done this a few times. Here are 8 celebrities that have married 5 times or more….

With seven divorces under his belt–two with third wife Alene Akins–the recently retired talk show host is often referred to as a serial marrier. He opened up to CBS “Early Show” co-anchor Erica Hill about his love life following the final episode of Larry King Live. “I think in my life, I have loved three people. Married all three. The other marriages I wasn’t in love, it was the thing to do,” he said. His current marriage to Shawn Southwick almost ended in divorce but the pair reconciled.
Zsa Zsa Gabor: 7
Hungarian actress Zsa Zsa Gabor has been married nine times–seven ended in divorce and one was annulled after a day because her prior marriage had not been properly dissolved. “I’m an excellent housekeeper,” she once said. “Everytime I get a divorce, I keep the house.”

Mickey Rooney: 7
The 5’3 veteran actor has been divorced seven times, though his current marriage to Jan Chamberlain has lasted over 30 years. He is often the subject of comedians’ jokes for his inability to stay married, and has joked about it himself. He once said, “A lot of people have asked me how short I am. Since my last divorce, I think I’m about $100,000 short.” His other marriages include Hollywood starlet Ava Gardner.
Lana Turner: 8
Lana Turner, the famed American actress who passed away in 1995, had seven husbands, eight marriages, and eight divorces. Her shortest–4 months–was to Artie Shaw when she eloped with him on their first date. She then divorced her second husband, Joseph Stephen Crane, twice. The reigning queen of divorce once famously said, “My goal was to have one husband and seven children, but it turned out to be the other way around.”
And they say love is dead.

After months of rumors that Katie Price and Alex Reid were heading for splitsville, just 11 months after they married in Las Vegas last year, she confirms it’s all true in a long ass statement.
On top of releasing a statement that will take longer to read than the length of her marriage, in which she basically blames him for everything, a “source” who is probably her says that she is living in fear that Alex might walk into their house at any minute. Take a deep breath and get ready to waste your day in work reading her statement….
“Alex and I have had a number of difficulties over the past few months. I accept that these were in part caused by my marrying too quickly – we all make mistakes and this was one.
However, Alex changed from the man I fell in love with and some of his behaviour became difficult for me to understand and caused issues. I have tried to help him with these issues but they have put a considerable strain on our relationship.
Our difficulties were also not helped by Alex becoming more fascinated by life in the media eye. Obviously I cannot be critical of someone wanting to do this and originally I tried to help him with his career by getting him contracts with my production company. If Alex wants to honour those contracts, the production company is more than happy to do so.
However, Alex’s desire to promote himself caused a change in the dynamic of our relationship and contributed to our alienation.
Alex and I have spent many hours discussing our relationship and trying to make it work but the issues between us are too deep rooted. I had hoped that we could end our relationship amicably and without a war of words in the media.
I appreciate that there are those that will not believe that but I had agreed I would say nothing more than the statement we had jointly prepared. This was not because I am concerned what Alex may truthfully disclose but to give him comfort that I would not discuss the issues that so strained our relationship.
I had hoped that Alex and I could remain friends but I am not sure if that is possible given events since last Sunday when we were on the verge of releasing a statement. Alex asked that we did not release any statement because he wanted more time to think.
The intervening period has, however, seen a number of false stories appear and photographs of Alex with my son Junior in the gym which it is absolutely clear were posed for. Alex is fully aware that I have sought to remove my children from the public eye now they are of an age to understand and be affected by media coverage of them.
I feel incredibly let down that he did this while asking me for more time to discuss our relationship and just hope that the stories circulating that he sold those pictures are not true.
It is true that I have asked Alex to leave the family home and that he will not do so. I would leave myself but the house is equipped for Harvey’s needs. Alex would like to portray himself as honourable and I hope he acts that way.
Contrary to some reports I have not discussed financial matters with my divorce lawyers. I would like to make clear that the allegations that I have been dragging out any announcement so that my film crew can capture on film Alex’s upset are complete fabrication.
I am deeply upset that my relationship with Alex has failed but I know it is the right thing for my children and I that we separate. My children are my absolute priority in this and they are being shielded from what is happening.”

Ryan Reynolds must really be in the holiday spirit because nothing says Merry Christmas quite like filing for diorce and that’s just what he did – file for divorce from Scarlett Johansson.
Ryan filed for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court yesterday, just a couple of weeks after they announced their separation. But don’t expect them to play dirty because she filed for divorce herself at the same time.
They both cite December 14th as the date of their separation and neither of them are looking for money from the other person so that means they are going to play nice with each other and nothing have a nasty divorce.

The couple issued a statement yesterday saying that the split was civil but Us Weekly are reporting that Reynolds had been getting close to one of his exes for the past few months, in a “platonic” way of course.
Watch this space but I’m willing to put all the money I don’t have for Christmas down that one of these, if not both, were cheating and that’s they they broke up. There is still two weeks left this year, I wonder who will be next to split up.

David Arquette doesn’t seem to be dwelling on his separation from Courteney Cox too much because he spent the whole weekend partying it up in Miami, and put the whole thing up on Twitter.
David spent the weekened at the Fontainebleau hotel and partied it up with some friends and apparently surrounded himself with women the whole time they were hanging out at LIV nightclub and Arkadia.
He got a tattoo of his grandfather on his arm on Friday and then spent the night at LIV but a source says that by the time Sunday came “he stayed to himself and looked like he had a rough weekend of partying.”
He also Tweeted saying “I know people think I’ve flipped my lid but I haven’t.I’m cool.Listen to Bob Marley’s “Soul Rebel”you’ll know where I’m comin from”
I wonder if he is going through a meltdown because his marriage fell apart or if he doesn’t give a shit and is just living his life? What do you think?

Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson are apparently on their way to joining the bin of celebrity couples that didn’t work out this year because it’s rumored they are about to break up.
The couple who have been married for two years are apparently having troubles in the relationship because their work schedules is constantly keeping them apart. A source said…
“Nothing is going to change unless Scarlett and Ryan can learn to compromise and they won’t, Scarlett won’t cancel anything she has coming up or wants to go to, and neither will Ryan.”
A source for the couple denied reports that there is any trouble in the relationship, but it’s not the first time there has been rumors about them splitting up. And as I always say there is no smoke without fire.
2010 really has been a shitty year for celebrity couples and there is still a few weeks left, I wonder who will be next?

After days of rumors, it’s now confirmed to be true that Eva Longoria has filed for divorce from Tony Parker and it seems that he cheated on her.
She confirmed the news on her Twitter saying, “It is with great sadness that after 7 years together, Tony and I have decided to divorce. We love each other deeply and pray for each other’s happiness.”
Eva filed the papers earlier today and cites “irreconcilable differences” as the reason they are splitting but it seems he might have cheated because Eva’s friend, and Extra presenter, Mario Lopez said that she found hundreds of text messages from other women when she was going through his phone.
According to TMZ she is seeking spousal support, she must be really pissed because it’s not as if she needs any money from him given she makes over $100,000 per episode of Desperate Housewives.
Seriously who the hell would cheat on Eva Longoria? What is up with these Hollywood men that cheat all the time? And so another celebrity marriage bites the dust.

Billy Ray Cyrus obviously isn’t up to date with this whole celebrity thing, when you are involved in a scandal you should expect to be asked about it so have your people tell the interviewer not to ask any questions.
Billy Ray appeared on WCOL’s Woody & The Wake-Up Call radio show in Ohio last week and stormed out of the interview because Woody Johnson brought up the divorce from Tish Cyrus.
Johnson was asking about the divorce to which Billy Ray said “Oh man. You know what bud? Woody Johnson. Woody Johnson. God bless America, God bless our troops. Woody Johnson, look at you, see ya man. It’s very rude.”
Johnson then wrote on his blog saying, “I’ve always liked Billy Ray Cyrus…and still do, actually, but was taken aback by his reaction to my question regarding the breakup of his marriage. I mean, it’s not like it wasn’t public knowledge, for crying out loud. If he shuts me down, fine. I respectfully moved on, but he did not.”
On one hand I can see why Billy Ray Cyrus would storm out of the interview but he should have expected a question like this to be asked.

Yet another celebrity couple bites the dust if TMZ are to be believed because they report that Rachel Weisz and her fiancé, Darren Aronofsky, have called it quits.
Like with most Hollywood break-ups it seems that there is a third person involved and it’s apparently none other than Daniel Craig, with who Rachel worked with on their upcoming movie Dream House. A rep for the couple confirmed the split saying…
“Rachel Weisz and Darren Aronofsky have been separated for some months. They remain close friends and are committed to raising their son together in NYC.”
No word on whether or not it’s true that Rachel has been doing the dirty with Mr. James Bond hiimself, but he is in a relationship with girlfriend Satsuki Mitchell.
Damn, I’ve lost count of how many Hollywood couples have split up this year.
