A Celebrity Breakup Cheat Sheet

It’s been a trying, troublesome spring in Hollywood. Troublesome for celebrity marriages, with a record number of famous parents breaking up. And troublesome for celebrity bloggers, as we try to keep them all straight. In that vein, I’ve put together a list of all of the celebrity-parent breakups since the beginning of March, and offer my verdicts on each. Break out the hankies, here we go, starting with the most recent:

Tammy and Melissa Etheridge, they have twins together (son Miller and daughter Johnnie Rose). Verdict: sad and unexpected.

 Larry King and Shawn Southwick, two sons together, Chance, 11, Cannon, 9. It’s his eighth divorce. Verdict: you didn’t see this one coming? look at those kids’ names. they don’t bode well. 

Mel Gibson and girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, one daughter together, six-month-old Lucia. Verdict: truly, it’s surprising that they lasted this long.

Tiki Barber and wife Ginny Cha, two sons together (A.J., 7, and Chason, 6)—plus twins on the way. Verdict: hand over a hanky, this is sad.

Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy, no kids together, but he has a grown daughter from a previous marriage, and she has a son, Evan, 7, from a previous marriage. Verdict: another sad, sad, sad, and unexpected.

Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes, one child together, Joe, 6. She also has a daughter from a previous marriage, Mia, 9. Verdict: is there no justice left in this world? sad.

Gossip Girl‘s Matthew Settle and wife Naama Nativ, parents of Aven, 11-months. Verdict: who?

Sandra Bullock and Jesse James, no kids together, but spent considerable time co-parenting his three children, Chandler, 15, Jesse Jr., 12, and Sunny, 6. Verdict: sad. On second thought: how did we not see this coming?
