List Love Book Club: Breaking up is Hard to Do

Each Week ElleinadspirA Place to Share and I will be working our way through the Listography 2011 Book with a rotating Link Part-tay! To find the list of the years topics, check out the Listography Link above. Today’s Topic: List couples you were sad to see break-up

Celebrity divorces bum me out hardcore so you can understand that I didn't handle the Aniston-Pitt seperation well. I'm even worse when it comes to imaginary TV couples! How could Carrie not have ended up with Aiden? The tragedy of it all. The not-at-all-real imaginary-TV tragedy.

At some point I started getting into the celebrity gossip websites. I started off (as we all do) reading PerezHilton and through a series of events ended up being a devoted Lainey Gossip fan. Armed with insider information I no longer feel too sad about the break-ups. Instead I'm fascinated by the PR that surrounds them. For example people love to announce their splits on Fridays before the slow-news weekend. Even better? Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey announced their's on Thanksgiving Day. Genius!

These days I may be more into understanding the macchinations behind celebrity divorce announcements and spin then I am into mourning their marital demises but I will tell you one thing: If Prince William and Princess Katherine end up divorcing I will not recover.

How about you? Are you less shallow than I? Which couple real or imaginary do you wish had hung in there? I've got the link today. If you want to blog about this topic, link to the post below. No blog? No problem. Leave your thoughts in the comments.
