Danny DeVito, Rhea Perlman & 5 Other Longtime Famous Couples Who Split Up

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...

30 Rock
Tina Fey's hit comedy 30 Rock will come to an end after one more season.

The series has been a critical smash since it first aired in 2006, and has won a string of Emmys and Golden Globe awards.

It was reported Fey's co-star Alec Baldwin was leaving the hit show earlier this year, but bosses at NBC have confirmed the main cast will all return for a seventh and final run.

The move comes amid falling ratings for the show, which has attracted star cameos from Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Aniston, Susan Sarandon, Matt Damon and environment campaigner Al Gore.

When asked by a fan on Twitter.c...

Al Gore Cleared Over Sexual Abuse Claims

July 31st, 2010 11:04am EDT
Al Gore
Former Vice President Al Gore has been cleared over allegations of sexual abuse stemming from a 2006 incident due to a "lack of credible evidence."

Officers in Portland, Oregon announced in June they were reopening an investigation into claims Gore inappropriately touched masseuse Molly Hagerty during a massage session at a hotel in October 2006.

Hagerty reportedly gave a police statement in 2009, but authorities were said to have dropped the investigation at the time due to "insufficient evidence to support the allegations".

A rep for Gore vehemently denied the claims, insisting a new i...

Al Gore's Rep Slams Sexual Assault Claims

July 1st, 2010 8:11am EDT
Al Gore
A representative for former vice president Al Gore has issued a statement to "unequivocally and emphatically" deny allegations the politician groped a masseuse in 2006 after police reopened their investigation into the matter.

Last week, the National Enquirer revealed masseuse Molly Hagerty gave a statement to police last year accusing Gore of "unwanted sexual contact" during a massage session at a hotel in October, 2006.

Cops didn't investigate the matter further at the time due to "insufficient evidence to support the allegations" as the accuser refused to be interviewed by police. Of...

Gary Coleman
"We're Not Pointing Fingers, But We Need To Know Exactly What Happened," Coleman's Parents Tell 'PEOPLE' Exclusively

"Diffrent Strokes" child star Gary Coleman charmed a generation of fans in the 1980s. During his brief life, the actor felt chronically betrayed: by the Hollywood community he felt had turned its back on him; by the parents he once believed mishandled his fortune; by his own failing body, which chained him to dialysis for decades. After years of health woes and career disappointments, he died estranged from his family and embroiled in a troubled marriage to Shannon Price, 24...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies 8/9/09 - 8/15/09

August 10th, 2009 9:57am EDT
District 9
I finally saw the Sam Mendes dramedy "Away We Go" starring Maya Rudolph and John Krasinski. The film is thoroughly enjoyable with its highs and its lows sharing equal poignancy. It is the perfect hybrid of a drama and a comedy.

Music throughout the film is spot on, appropriate in each instance for the emotions the filmmakers are trying to convey. Rudolph and Krasinski have a wonderful chemistry as husband and wife and engage in hilarious interactions with the other couples in the movie. Krasinski plays the role of Burt with a dopey charm that's hard not to love.

Earth 911: Green Celebs Intervene To Save The Planet

April 22nd, 2008 8:30am EDT
Leonardo DiCaprio
It's a bird. It's a plane. It's... Leonardo DiCaprio? Earthlings, take note: April 22 marks Earth Day, a day of national environmental recognition. In the last decade, environmental awareness has grown by leaps and bounds, and many celebrities have visibly thrown their support behind the planet.

Though it may currently be trendy, Kermit the Frog said it best: It ain't easy being green. Committing to be more conscious environmentally takes sacrifice, dedication and consistency. We should all stop a moment - April 22 is as good a day as any - and examine our lifestyles and what changes, ...

Low Times Mean Good Times With Andy Kindler, Part 1

April 1st, 2008 10:39am EDT
Andy Kindler
There seems to be a relationship between the state of comedian Andy Kindler's career and the state of American culture. The worse the economy, the less informative the news, and the poorer the satire, the more opportunities Andy gets. This past month alone Andy has been on Letterman, Comedy Central's The Root of all Evil, and was even profiled by the LA Times. "To a man like me," says Andy, "Who brings joy to the non-masses, I'm going to be able to profit during down times." What's down, what's coming, and what's funny about it is the subject of this Starpulse Q and A with comedian Andy Kin...

With stories like Britney Spears being offered a $1,000 by PETA to work as their secretary for a day, it's getting harder and harder to tell what's true and what's false. In this case, the story is true. But there are a few other stories out there that may be harder to discern.

Don't worry, Starpulse breaks it down for you. The following are hoax stories coming out of the Starpulse April Fool's Day newsroom:

It's that time again…A new season of South Park is on the way. Yes, the four little boys from South Park have been offending, swearing, making us all think and making us all laugh for 12 years. We walked down memory lane, went through all the seasons and picked some of our favorite episode from each season (This wasn't as easy as it sounds since there were a couple of seasons that had 4 or 5 really good episodes). Here are our picks of the greatest "South Park" episodes:

Upper Deck Inserting 'Presidential Predictor' Parody Cards In Baseball Card Packs

February 19th, 2008 7:30pm EST
Barack Obama
What true-blooded American doesn't like baseball? And who doesn't have an opinion regarding the country's ever-changing political climate? Well, in its most recent baseball card product launch, the Upper Deck Company has married the two hotbeds of debate by producing a very unique "Presidential Predictor" card set. The illustrated parodies show several of the top candidates in rare form by tying each one of them to a pivotal moment or personality from baseball's rich history.

"This was a unique concept developed to bring some timely and very topical humor to our first baseball card pro...

Borat & Simon Cowell Have The Biggest Balls; Tom Cruise Needs 'Em

February 15th, 2008 4:16pm EST
Simon Cowell
"You've got balls!" While it may appear to be an insult, it's really a grudging compliment -- an off-color testament to a person's confidence, fearlessness and take-no-prisoners approach to life.

To mark the premiere of its uncensored and very "ballsy" new sketch comedy series, "The Whitest Kids U' Know," the IFC cable network asked Americans a direct and unprecedented question -- to name the politicians, political pundits and entertainment stars they think have the most major cojones...and those who are most in need of more testosterone in their public lives!

So which politicians...

God's Pottery Discusses New EP put out by Comedy Central

February 13th, 2008 9:06am EST
When Jeremiah Smallchild and Gideon Lamb started performing as God's Pottery they were just two little fish in the big pond that is NYC. But as they started nibbling at that ol' Apple, they grew larger in size until they came to the attention of Comedy Central Records, who decided to release an EP of the Christian acoustic duo's wholesome brand of foot-tapping fun. But in this modern world, where the Internet, cell phones, and reality TV dominate the cultural landscape, is there still room for God? Jerimiah and Gideon think so, and they're not going to give up until we're all singing his ...

Desconstructing Grammy

February 8th, 2008 3:57pm EST
Amy Winehouse
"The Grammys at 50 are showing their age," crows the latest headline from Newsday. Have the Grammys ever showed anything but? It takes years for them to even deign career artists buzzworthy enough for the Best New Artist trophy. (The most glaring example? Alt country siren Shelby Lynne taking home Best New Artist prize 13 years into her career.)

Yes, the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences is about as hip as sitting through an Al Gore earth documentary on Current.

For a better gauge of 2007, bless sweet Robert Christgau's still-kicking "Pazz and Jop" poll. The Pazz an...

November 16th, 2007 4:12pm EST
South Park
The season began with apologies to Jesse Jackson, ended with Abe Lincoln and featured Hillary's snuke, Al Gore's worst nightmare, the instant classic "Imaginationland" trilogy and, oh yeah, a second Emmy Award in between.

Woody Harrelson
It’s not always easy for busy moms to think about saving the earth—they’re just trying to figure out what to feed the kids for dinner. With that in mind, Working Mother magazine did a little asking around, and got advice from some of the most notable champions of the environment on the one thing even the busiest parents can do to save the planet.

Leonardo DiCaprio, actor and producer of the documentary 11th Hour:

Starpulse's Top 10 Animated Shows of All Time, Part 1

November 8th, 2007 2:23pm EST
If your childhood was anything like mine, the working week was simply a means to an end. I slept through class, suffered through swimming lessons, and sweated through T-ball practice, all with a singular goal: survive until Saturday.

Saturday was more than just a break from the routine, more than just the promise of croissants instead of dry toast, and more than just the freedom of not wearing a tie. Saturday meant Saturday morning, and Saturday morning meant one thing: cartoons.

This week, Starpulse takes a nostalgic stroll down memory lane in search of the top 10 animated tele...

'South Park' Weekly Commentary: Episode 1112 - Imaginationland: Episode III

November 2nd, 2007 11:49am EDT
South Park
There you have it: Three episodes, three weeks, and the race to save Imaginationland from the demonic woodland critters, the U.S. Government and Al Gore.

Terrorists are using our imagination against us, so the U.S. government thought it would be a good idea to nuke Imaginationland. It was declared that imaginary things are thing made up by people (like Santa Clause), and therefore not real (real things, according to Pentagon employee, Tom, would be something like Jesus or hell). Stan found himself flung into Imaginationland through the portal, and Al Gore found out that ManBearPig wa...

A Crude Awakening
NEW YORK, NY -- Move over Al Gore - the next crisis has arrived. Since our earliest reliance on fossil fuels, there have been murmurs about the future demise of the oil industry.

An unforgettable and shocking wake-up call, the film offers the rock-solid argument that the era of cheap oil is in the ...
