Jay Baruchel and Alison Pill getting engaged back in 2011 was kind of awesome. Like the perfect indie union of two slightly dorky, souls. Alison’s reaction to that embarrassing incident of tweeting her own topless picture by accident made us love her even more. Besides us being complete The Newsroom fans, of course. So two hear that these two crazy kids weren’t going to end up together, after all of that, made us really sad. Baruchel and Pill are no longer engaged, and have also split up. What an awesome wedding it was going to be too, considering the actor told US Weekly early last year that they were, “… getting married at an ice wine vineyard. Me and the groomsmen will all be wearing kilts! We’ll be welcomed in by uilleann pipers. It will be a very small, 70 person wedding, just friends and family …I’m really excited to see all the…hairy, chubby legs. I just hope my groomsmen wear underwear!” Sources say that their schedules and the long distance relationship thing took its toll, revealing, “Working and living in Canada is something that [Baruchel] is very passionate about. He wanted her up there more often, but she really likes Newsroom and the opportunities that are there for her. They were doing the long distance [thing] a lot.” Not too late for a reconciliation, guys!

We really, really thought these two were the real deal. Like apple pie and vanilla ice-cream — adorable, wholesome and perfectly matched. So you can imagine our dismay when we read about the reported split between Michelle Williams and Jason Segel. Sources say the break-up happened earlier this month, very quietly. We want to know why! Actually, do we really want to know? It would only make us extremely sad. They had been dating for a year and Jason was quoted as saying lovely things like, “I think we would just very much like to be happy. That’s all I’m going to say about it.” The famously private Michelle even told In Style, “I didn’t realize [boyfriend Jason Segel] was so tall [6’4”]. I thought, Hey, man, you’re cramping my style! I tried wearing wedge heels for a while to compensate, but it wasn’t me and I just gave up.” See … sad. We’re going to shut up now and hope for a reconciliation.

NOOOOOOOO! But also, ooooooooo! We’ve had a couple crush on Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult ever since the Catching Fire star gave an amazing Elle quote about her mans back in November: [My boyfriend] is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I’m his best friend too. He’s my favorite person to be around and makes me laugh harder than anybody.” Awww! So you can understand why half of us is super bummed that Us Weekly claims they’ve split. The other half, however, recognizes the fact that they are now both single, which means we have potentially two new celeb couples to squee over. Haha, it’s just math! Delicious, sex math!
Us Weekly reported earlier today that the two have ended their two-year relationship. There are virtually no deets as to why they parted ways, other than the vague claim the two “grew apart,” which makes us believe Jennifer and Nicholas are both being as classy as we would have expected about the whole thing. The more we think about it, however, the less we understand. If we met someone who loved Honey Boo Boo, cheese steaks and old strippers as much as we do, why, we’d never let er go! On the other hand, to think that Jennifer saw the trailer for Warm Bodies and was apparently able to give up that zombie fineness doesn’t make a lick of sense. The only way we’re going to feel better about this is if you guys take it on yourselves to start dating JLaw and Nicholas. Go! Go now and find them! You didn’t have any weekend plans until the Golden Globes anyway!

Okay, so we don’t actually know if Taylor Swift and Harry Styles have actually broken up or not. Maybe Richard Branson‘s island exerts mysterious influences on people, Lost-style. While we hope Haylor lasts unto eternity, forever and ever amen, we would be remiss if we didn’t point out that there are plenty of other fish in the sea for TSwift. Fish with boyish laughs and beautiful hair and emotional issues just begging to be memorialized in song. Fish like…
We hear that Taylor Swift has been working on album as of this weekend because she has a ton of brand new — how do we say this politely — material? Just kidding. Or not. And before you think we’re mean, this break-up between T. Swizzle and her man Harry Styles hasn’t been officially confirmed. But, when news spreads about a split like this one is, it’s always been most likely true. But still, we’d be terribly said to see no more Haylor, so until we hear an official statement from either, we’re putting this in the rumor category. Especially because that New Years kiss between the two happened just a week ago.
The story is that the two hotties have been in Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin since January 1. But last week, on January 4 to be precise, Taylor left solo, early in the morning, looking not particularly happy. Ever since then, Harry’s been seen living it up, hot-tubbing with girls and hanging at Richard Branson’s private Necker Island resort before jetting back to England. It is believed that the two combusted and had a massive fight, which was the alleged catalyst of the break-up. A tweet of Taylor’s the day after the apparent split read, “…’til you put me down.” And that right there, has got to the be title to a new song, right? Because she’s never, ever, ever getting back together with him, right?

Love is a battlefield, and 2012 was not immune the heart’s harsh ways. Celebrity relationships had a tough go at things this year and saw a record number of sad splits (Amy Poehler and Will Arnett), shocking divorces (Heidi Klum and Seal) and close-call almost breakups (Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson). But 2012 also saw a few reconciliations (Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez), giving us hope for 2013. Browse through our gallery of the 20 biggest breakups of 2012 and tell us which split was the most devastating to watch.
Oh, Rob Kardashian. Had you done what Rita Ora is doing right now. That is, have a sit-down with a fabulous magazine and have a calm chat about the break-up, rather than going on a Twitter rant and then deleting it. Rita’s sounding way more classy here, as she talks to Glamour U.K. about what went wrong between the two. “I’m not going out with Rob. We were close for a while, but it didn’t work because I was never there. I was like a ghost. I used to get so frustrated with myself and then wonder why I was angry, so I decided it was best to keep it friendly — especially at the moment, when there’s so much going on,” she explains, as we totally feel her. Here that sound? That’s the sound of Rob slowly deflating as Rita comes up trumps. She takes it one step furthur, making us want to hug her, by adding, “In 22 years, there’s been nothing. I have had young fascinations but never love. I think it’s my only weakness. I’m scared of letting my guard down, and if I feel in love with someone now, he’d have to try ten times harder to break it down.” Hey, Rita. If it doesn’t work out in the entertainment world, P.R could use a new guru and we think that could be you!

Oh, Rob Kardashian, we feel your pain…or rather, we felt your pain until you went ahead and put it on Twitter. After recently breaking up with lady friend Rita Ora, Rob allegedly took to Twitter to let the world know how badly the “Hot Right Now” singer done him dirt. “She cheated on me with nearly 20 dudes while we were together, I wonder how many she will sleep with now that we apart? But I mean 20?!!,” Kardashian ranted in the now deleted posts. “I’m actually disgusted a woman could give up her body to more than 20 dudes in less than a year’s time whle trying to start a career.” The semi-imaginative insult “Rita Whora” is now trending across the Twitterscape, and yet somehow, defying all logic, Rob Kardashian manages to come across like the bigger jerk. Proving once again that nothing is impossible with the power of the Internet!
Now, we’re not saying we would want to get cheated on with 20 guys either; our boyfriend would have so much explaining to do. Clearly Rob has every right to hate her beautiful guts, but there is literally no reason to tweet about your famous ex’s infidelities other than inciting total strangers to hate her on the Internet. And just on the Internet if she’s lucky! Remember those whack jobs who sent death threats after the recent Chris Brown Twitter debacle? Everyone knows that people on the Internet be cray!
It’s like we’re stuck in a pop culture time warp! First we are forced to visually revisit The Rihanna/Chris Brown Situation, which everyone and their mother (except for maybe Mom Breezy) wished had ended three years ago, and now this. In a new interview with Us Weekly, Lindsay Lohan spills the beans on her relationship with DJ Sam Ronson…which ended in 2009. What? Well, of course we’re still going to read the interview. We’re not that morally upstanding. “I was bold enough to say, ‘Yeah, I like a girl. And?,’” Lindsay explains to the magazine. “That put her in a situation where she was being attacked every day. That’s not fair. And what am I left with? Heartbreak.” Adds Lohan, “That was three years ago. It was my last serious relationship.” Wow, so this was Lindsay’s next P.R. move after the premiere of Liz & Dick? We know nostalgia is huge right now, but this is a tad ridiculous.
Our bad, people. We searched our memories and our archives and realized we had spoken about the fact that Reeve Carney and Ashley Greene were, in fact, dating — it’s number 12 on the list of the story we just linked. But that little bit of information totally slipped our minds. Maybe it’s because Ashley’s got serious game and will always be the quintessential player in our minds. Seriously, the lady’s dated most of everyone we find hot, with Ian Somerhalder, Gerard Butler and Chace Crawford to name a few dudes. Carney, her now ex-boyfriend, plays Spider-man on Broadway, FYI. And even though they’d been dating ten odd months, they’re now dunzo, with US Weekly reporting, “They are over. Reeve seems to be fine and it was just crazy with their schedules.” But what about Ashley? She seems to be okay too, debuting a new red hairdo and jetting off to South Africa.We wonder how long they’ve been broken up. Ashley was just lamenting the lack of a boyfriend to Marie Claire, as she is their cover girl for the November issue. I’ve gotten very good at detaching whenever I have to go away for three months, which I realize is hard on friends and kind of selfish,” she says. “You go on a couple of dates, and then someone ships off to do a movie. It’s not like you’re going to fly out and see them, because it’s not serious enough for that.” Now we just want to give her a hug.
