When celebrities marry, the clock starts ticking.
The marriage is doomed from the outset – at least in most cases. The only question: How long will it last?
Apparently, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore are the latest Hollywood married couple headed for divorce court. Just get it over with, I say.
I’m tired of being bombarded with rumors about Ashton’s alleged affair and Demi’s supposed outrage.
I don’t care a whit about either one, but it’s impossible to avoid the headlines if you surf the web or pass by a newsstand.
As I write this, here are some of the Internet headlines about the troubled couple:
Demi Moore Wants Divorce, Friends Say
Ashton Kutcher Cheated on Demi Moore with Two Girls in Hot Tub
Ashton Kutcher Sends Friendly Tweet to Demi Moore
Stunning Demi Moore’s Ann Taylor Photo Shoot: No Signs of Ashton
Ashton Kutcher Sex Scandal Hits Two and a Half Men Ratings
Please, give us some more news about Kim Kardashian’s wedding! Anything to break the Ashton-Demi stranglehold on celebrity gossip.
I don’t understand why big-time Hollywood celebrities even get married. They read the tabloids. They see the never-ending procession of power couples who split – followed by a nasty, drawn-out, outrageously expensive divorce.
Seriously, do celebrities like Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore get married to generate publicity – and divorce to get more publicity?
I wouldn’t be surprised. After all, what’s real in Hollywood, anyway?
I’d hate to be married to an actress. I’d never know if her affection was genuine – or whether she was acting. Think about it.
Do husbands and wives who are both actors fool each other about their feelings? Listen, a typical marriage is full of enough lying and deceit. If both partners can really act, how would there be any authentic moments?
I do see one upside to celebrity marriage gossip: It makes losers in love (like me) feel better.
My two failed marriages were train wrecks. My ex-wives and I epitomized dysfunctional relationships.
But put us next to the ugliness swirling around Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, and we don’t look so bad. In fact, we behaved in a mature, civil manner by comparison.
So give me more Ashton and Demi news – simply because it makes me feel better about myself.
Why are we so enthralled with celebrity breakups? I say it’s because we like to see rich and famous people suffer and treat each other horribly. We may be bad, but we’re not that bad.
