The love of the 90’s is dead and gone. Sad trombone.
Right after I posted last night’s Sampler, news broke that my favorite celebrity couple, Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani filed for divorce after 13 years of marriage, and almost 20 years of coupledom. I. Was. Sad. There are a few reasons for this reaction. A) Gavin was the first true, deep, obsessed celebrity crush I had. Well, after Patrick Swayze- but I was only 5 then and this was the kind of crush you get at 12. It was SERIOUS, guys. Bush was my first concert. I missed school for it!! When he met Gwen- I was unimpressed. I did not like this harpy moving in on my man. Lucky for her, I loved No Doubt’s music, and eventually my heart warmed to their pairing. Then they got married, had babies, and lived happily ever after, or so I thought. Can no one make it in Hollywood these days? (And as my husband would happily point out- Gavin especially has been FAR from the spotlight for the better part of a decade, spare his “pity appearance” as a coach on The Voice.)
Gwen Stefani Believes Gavin Cheated on Her (NYDaily News)- Ugh. I don’t want this to be true, but it probably is. If you’ve ever watched Gwen on TV or any interview, it’s hard not to love her- she’s sweet and beautiful. Gavin… I can’t believe I ended up on *her* side!
Kermit and Miss Piggy Split (ET)- Kourtney and Scott, Blake and Miranda, and now THIS!? JESUS. 2015 is the year of the sad breakup. Who on earth thought it would be clever to create and release a story that one of the world’s most beloved couples is breaking up?! (Because remember- they are Muppets, and some sick person had to create this storyline.) In a world with such heartbreak, was this necessary? Jim Henson will haunt you, mystery downer!
