I’m really going to need these celebrity couples to go to some therapy or something because I am about over these splits.

Like, is there something in the water out there in Hollywood? Or is the drought making these celebs LOSE THEIR MINDS???? I think it’s selfish, really. What do young couples have to aspire to if not Blake & Miranda or Kermit & Miss Piggy?

I just feel like we really don’t have any role models anymore. Growing up, I had Nick & Jessica Lachey. They weren’t perfect, I’ll admit. But they had that cutie mansion & the “is this chicken or fish?” episode that made us all swoon.ย Just pure, innocent, stupid love. When they split I thought it was over for me. J. Simp can’t make it work then who can?????

I don’t want young girls to go through that same heart ache & self-doubt.ย Upper middle class suburban youth NEED strong, wealthy celebrity couples.

If Posh Spice & David Beckham call it quits, I’m literally out.
