The Talk of Tinseltown
Conscious Uncoupling

Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald have split after two years of marriage. The Twilight star and American Idol musician wed in October 2011 after seven months of dating. Despite the split, they will continue to work on their debut album which is set for release later this year.

Chelsea Handler is set to end her late-night talk show Chelsea Lately after eight seasons. Handler plans to leave E! when her contract expires later this year. She's exploring several opportunities including her own radio show or possibly another late-night gig with a different network. I enjoyed her show early on, but eventually stopped watching because it grew repetitious. I'm definitely interested in seeing what she does next. I think she's hilarious and love all of her books.

There's good news for Harry Potter fans. J.K. Rowling is not only writing the screenplay for a film adaptation of her wizarding textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but it's being worked into a trilogy. Rowling has agreed to write all three films, which will be set seven decades before the start of Harry Potter's story. Even without knowing anything about the films, I know I'll see them.

Gwyneth Paltrow, 41, and Chris Martin, 37, are ending their 10-year marriage. Paltrow announced the split on her GOOP website under the heading Conscious Uncoupling. What exactly is a conscious uncoupling? According to Dr. Habib Sadeghi and his wife, Dr. Sherry Sami:

"By choosing to handle your uncoupling in a conscious way, regardless of what's happening with your spouse, you'll see that although it looks like everything is coming apart; it's actually all coming back together."

Blah blah blah. Who cares!

William and Kate, the cutest royals ever, released this informal family photo recently taken at Kensington Palace. Baby George, now 8-months-old, is looking at Lupo, their Cocker Spaniel. Oh my gosh, how adorable is this picture? Love them!

Conscious Uncoupling is the dumbest psychobabble term I've heard in a long time.

But that picture of Wills and Kate and George is too precious!!

Love this! I'm surprised about Chelsea Handler, but cannot wait to see what she does next! Also that picture of the Royal Family is too cute!

I hope that Chelsea Handler heads to HBO so that she can say what she actually wants to say, full out.

Gwyneth Paltrow makes me sad. She has this insane holier than thou attitude and it shows when she used the term "conscious uncoupling".

I just now noticed his sweater says 'George'. How adorable!

And did you see that quote from Gwenyth's about how much easier it is to have a 'desk job' than acting? Being on a film set working 14 hour days for 2 weeks is SO hard according to G. Um, I do that many weeks out of the year for 1/100th of your pay, you B. Go uncouple yourself from the public's eye please.

Baby George, killing me with his cuteness!!! And the little name on his sweater *dies*.

Ugh, no one cares Gwen just get divorced already.

I got over Chelsea's show a long time ago too - for the same reasons. I read most of her books and thought they were hilarious but I'm starting to realize she sort of annoys me now. Which is sad. I don't think I'll be watching anything else she does but wish her the best.

The royal puppy looks terrified. It's the exact same expression my dog has when my baby comes near. Like, please don't hurt me!

Ugh, GP is such a DOUCHE! Seriously, her website is so aptly named. She's goopy.

I still watch Chelsea, but fast forward to the interview part. I think she's funniest off the cuff with her guests. The round table has been getting more and more mean instead of funny. It's s fine line, but they don't know where it's at. Gwyneth is ridiculous. I never like anything she says. I glanced once at the royal family pic and just now realized George is looking at the dog! So sweet!
