Well, I am simply astonished, shocked, and completely taken by surprise - Britney Spears and Kevin Federline are getting divorced. Who could have ever predicted such a thing?!? I'm sure that we all thought that theirs was a marriage made in heaven and that it would last forever so I know I'm not alone in my complete and total dismay at this most astonishing of announcements.
And now poor Britney will have to try to make her way through life as a struggling single mother having to juggle both her career and her two young sons. I'm not sure how she's going to be able to handle it all.
Oh wait - I see she's been handling it just fine by throwing herself in front of every camera that provides even a miniscule photo-op and appearing on just about every news show that she possibly can while looking quite happy about the whole thing.
Apparently celebrities don't go through the same suffering that we mere mortals go through when a relationship ends - instead they go ice-skating in Rockefeller Center or make a surprise appearance on The David Letterman Show. No sitting home and crying over a marriage gone bad for Ms. Spears. Oh well, at least K-Fed had the good grace to look somewhat bummed when the paparazzi caught him out for dinner with his buds. Hmmm, I wonder if she employed the talents of the "Relationship Terminator" from my previous entry??
And to think that this news trumped that of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld resigning ... what is this country coming to and where have our priorities gone??
