Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver have separated after 25 years of being married together! This news upsets us for reasons beyond our comprehension. Perhaps it’s because whatever happened with other Hollywood couples, Arnie and Maria always seemed solid and to stuck together. 25 years is no joke! They’ve also released a joint statement that reads, “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 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.” But, GUYS. This is just so sad!
Maria’s already moved out, so this is something that has been planned for a while. We’re trying to figure out what this means? Is this a precursor to divorce? That word hasn’t been used, quite deliberately we think! But separation after spending more than two decades together seems pretty final. We hope no mudslinging comes out of this split.

Sure, in our line of work we have an innate love for entertainment, celebrity train wrecks and crazy gossip, but we draw the line of enjoyment at certain reality shows. We’ve been maintaining a personal boycott of The Real Housewives of D.C. because we refuse to pay the Salahis any more attention than we already have, and admittedly, The Hills got to be too much for us when Spencer and Heidi started to get super-nutballs. So with a certain amount of schadenfreude, but mostly just disgust, we’re here to tell you about two reality television families that are having a really bad day.
First, there’s the completely unsurprising news that the Raising Sextuplets parents, Bryan and Jenny Masche are separating. This comes just days after Bryan Masche was arrested for a domestic dispute with his wife. At least they didn’t pull a Jon and Kate by renewing their vows just before deciding they hate each other after all. But seriously, no one is surprised at this and it’s just another sad reminder that the spotlight will do awful things to a family. Oh, hey, that leads right into…
The fact that the family at the center of the new TLC show Sister Wives is also being investigated by the police. Kody Brown, husband to four different women (who are all aware of each other and happy about it!) is under investigation for felony bigamy in his home state of Utah. The Browns’ show premiered just this week, but with the exposure that a show like this brings also comes scrutiny and people who are just a wee bit suspicious, on account of it being illegal and all. Brown and his obedient Big Love crew have thirteen children and hilariously, as People magazine explains,” struggles to keep his unorthodox family life a secret from the outside world”. Sorry Kody Brown, but please explain how being on a reality show will help you there. We’re all ears.
What a day. It’s not even noon and we’re so grossed out by all these people. All we need right now is a Little Chocolatier to bake us some delicious treats, and some Ron-Ron juice to make it all go away.
