Diss from a Rose: Heidi Klum Filing for Divorce from Seal
Jan 21, 2012 - by Lester Brathwaite
There's something about celebrity couples -- a certain proprietorship the general public has over them and their perceived happiness. You just want those two crazy kids to stay togetha'.
And when something rocks the foundation of their relationship, it also rocks your belief in real celebrity love. The love that's more glamorous and probably a lot better-looking than regular people love. It's even worse when it happens to couples you think have got it all figured out. I'm still reeling from Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon's break-up years after the fact. And if Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson ever divorce, or Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn stop doing whatever the hell they're doing, I'm going to be inconsolable...for a period of time.
Not that Heidi Klum and Seal are in the Hanks-Wilson league, but news that Heidi is planning on filing for divorce from her loving water mammal after almost seven years of marriage -- an eternity really, for while bright and hot, celebrity love burns out ever so quickly -- still fills me with a pang of regret. According to TMZ, Klum is citing "irreconcilable differences" and will file the papers as early as next week.
Klum and Seal's elaborate Halloween costumes, yearly vow renewals and rabbit-like breeding -- seriously, when has Heidi not been pregnant on a season of Project Runway? -- always pointed to signs of a stable (by celebrity standards) and happy marriage. And now it's all -- allegedly -- coming to the end. Sigh. I just wanted those two crazy kids to stay togetha'.
