October 8th, 2012 6:00pm EDT
Danny DeVito & Rhea Perlman
The news that Danny DeVito, 67, and Rhea Perlman, 64, split after a staggering 30 years together shocked fans around the world this morning. The couple, who have three children together, met after Rhea saw the actor in a play in 1971. They got married in 1982.

No reason was given for the split, but according to AARP, extramarital affairs for people 45 and older are relatively rare. So the odds that Danny or Rhea met someone else is likely not the cause of their break up.

Some relationships just fizzle out over time. Sometimes a couple's personal issues intensify. Most typically, a husband...

Helpful fact to know for those of you unfamiliar with the DC comic...Green is the color of will. Yellow is the color of fear. So...green is good...yellow, bad...very very bad.

Celebrity Matchmaker: Tiger Woods, Sandra Bullock & More

Romantically, things are looking bleak for celebrities right now. From Tiger’s betrayal to tattooed mistresses and out-of-nowhere divorces for seemingly stable couples, it looks like stars’ love lives are in shambles.

Here are some (unsolicited) suggestions for the lonely hearts in Tinseltown:

1. Tiger Woods

Wood’s divorce hasn’t been finalized, but considering the leaked texts, the harem of mistresses and the fact that his wife came at him with a golf club when she found out, it’s safe to say this swinger will soon be on the market. Woods should play it safe by dating casually instead o...

The Toast Of Beantown: Boston's Best Movies

October 30th, 2009 10:32am EDT
The Boondock Saints
In 1999, Troy Duffy showed audiences that New York City isn't the only major metropolitan place where mob violence and nefarious dealings happen on film. Using Boston as a backdrop for his cult hit "Boondock Saints," Duffy gave the city a gritty image that reignited interest in the area.

"Boondock Saints" follows the MacManus brothers, a pair of vigilantes who decide to carry out their own brand of violent justice on the criminals of Boston. As a proud Boston resident, I'm thrilled to announce the premiere today of "Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day," which brings the MacManus brother...

Funny People
Ordinarily, an article such as this warrants a spoiler alert, but since the only thing giving away plot details of the last hour of "Funny People" would spoil is a good nap, that disclaimer is null in this instance.

There's a moment in this film, about three-fifths of the way through it, when Adam Sandler's George Simmons calls Seth Rogen's Ira Wright (née Weiner), and tells him in a strange pirate voice that they're to set sail for San Francisco the next day to perform a comedy show. He then makes a funny phallus-related joke and the camera cuts away.

Happily Unmarried With Children: Stars Who Haven't Tied The Knot

July 14th, 2009 9:36am EDT
Unmarried celebrity couples
A National Center for Education Statistics Study found that 52% of nonmarital births in the United States are to couples who live together but aren't married. This growing fad seems especially prominent in Hollywood where it's trendy to have babies out of wedlock. Although Hollywood isn't the land of tradition, one has to wonder why these couples who live together and have children together choose not to get married.

Perhaps the couple intended to tie the knot when they accidentally got pregnant. Now the new parents are too busy with the baby that their wedding plans kept getting put off...

Five Most Overrated & Underrated Political Films

November 14th, 2008 9:57am EST

We just went through the most fascinating and compelling election season ever in the television age. A lot of people are glad it's over, but there are those who simply can't get enough of the entertainment that is politics.

Unfortunately for the latter group, the only politics on TV right now involves Sarah Palin making the rounds and discussing the matters of a state with a population density that makes the Sahara Desert look like mid-town Manhattan. In other words, it's a snoozer.

So the last respite for these political junkies is the political movie. But which to choose? Th...
