Why Halle berry didn’t fail

thCAFM53YP Last night there were a couple of posts on Facebook about the recent decision by Olivier Martinez and Halle Berry to get a divorce. Divorce happens. They seem to be handling it sensibly with a joint statement talking about how they were going to do this amicably with love and in the best interest of their son. Sounds fair? I thought so.

So why am I reading all this shit about Halle Berry? Disclaimer, I don’t rate her as an actress at all. She’s just ok. The best acting I’ve seen her in was when she accepted the raspberry or strawberry award for Cat Woman. But somehow her rich love life has turned into a character assassination.

I read about how one woman didn’t believe that David Justice ever beat her up despite the restraining order and another about how she’s just crazy. Not one person had anything to say about Martinez who doesn’t strike me as a walk in the park at the best of times. Dumping pert bum Kylie? Nah mate, I’m guessing you’re not easy either.

This morning I grabbed a copy of a free paper called ‘Metro’ and the Headline in the stellar rag read ‘Halle’s Divorce #3 – Heartbreak for Berry as she fails in love again.’ The article inside was actually clear thhbat this was a mutual decision and that she would be protected by a pre nup but, somehow they’re declaring her a failure on the front page?

Apparently it’s the responsibility of a woman to keep a marriage together. Goodness knows what the man is doing whilst she’s fighting all sorts of bullshit to achieve this but yes, women everywhere take note: If your marriage or relationship fails then it was down to you because you carry the burden of the blame for ‘failing’. Fails? She’s getting divorced not sitting her A levels . Unless there are classes and an exam I don’t see how this can be considered a fail. Meanwhile he’ll be in the house somewhere playing with his penis talking about what they’re going to get up to next. Because divorce for men is freedom but for women is failure.

And how is she the only one responsible for a whole relationship and marriage? Why is this an acceptable way to view relationships? Ah it must be her fault because she’s been married before and she’s got ovaries so, yep, let’s ‘blame’ her. Then again I didn’t hear one bad word about Brad Pitt over Jennifer Aniston and yet there has been plenty of negative press about ‘poor Jen’ and her inability to find or keep love. The woman has dated 5 eligible bachelors since Brad and nobody should be feeling sorry for her! Both women have found love more times than most of us who are still struggling with finding the tricky second date.

Let’s movethCARHBSBA away from this notion that people fail at relationships. Relationships don’t work out and that’s life. As far as I’m concerned she’s winning. Oh and don’t think the shady photos of her shopping in sweats and looking less than pristine whilst he looks fine in all the photos posted has gone unnoticed. You may want to paint her as difficult or crazy but I just see yet another woman trying to find her happy. Fuck you, Metro.

So yeah, #HalleBerry #Winning . Now, let me get back to finding a date and doing my Sudoku.

The Open Relationship, Emma and Fairtrade

Categories: BLOG, celebrity, DATING, Latest

After the least sympathised breakup since Brian Harvey and Daniella Westbrooke we have now been told that Chris Martin and Gwyneth were in an Open Relationship but that he’s been unfaithful.  Boo hiss, no, why! How dare he cheat on Emma, I mean Gwyneth. She’s so blonde and perky and vegan. This feels so wrong. And with someone who was part of an entourage? Not even a mini celebrity like a Kardashian or an ex contestant from The Voice? (Maybe he learned from Giggs and didn’t go fame whore celebrity. Does Emma, I mean Gwyneth, have a sister?)

Chris Martin 2Then I thought about it again. I don’t think it’s technically cheating if the relationship is open but who am I to question the heteronormative positioning that is the Metro? And do we care where Coldplays stick their penises? He was hardly interesting celebrity fodder before he got with Emma so why should he get interesting now?

I’m being harsh but Apple’s mum brought celebrity glamour to that coupling and uncoupling. She brought Hollywood royality and was looking for her British Mr Knightley.  He brought songs and a commitment to Liberal vegetarian Fairtrade.  That was hardly a fair trade. Boom boom.

I think the whole Open Relationship thing is bound for failure. Like 3sums they sound great but most of the time you’re competing to beopen relationships the one that gets the most outside nookie or you’re just unable to deny yourself other people and want that get out clause. Yes, I’d love to find a man that wanted to be in an open relationship but let me have more outside nookie than he did. I’ve yet to meet this rare specimen and I suspect that if he did come into my life I would assume that he wasn’t that into me and walk out. Tres contraire.

So do we care whether he’s sleeping with some chick from SNL backstage ? No, because his crimes to humanity are far, far graver. He’s breaking up with Emma which means he’s no Mr Knightley and ….he’s still writing songs that put me to sleep. Apparently he suffers from insomnia. He should try singing himself to sleep.

Typically I ask myself why do I read articles by journalists so shit they don’t have their name on the Chris Martin and Gwynetharticle. Then I thought, is this what happens when you try to make up stuff like uncoupling when at the end of the day maybe he’s just done suckling her size A tits and, you were never that sexy to begin with Chris.

No, the most interesting thing about Chris Martin is that he was IN an open relationship at all. Well done Chris. You’re almost interesting….

My favourite Catfish episode ever


Categories: BLOG, celebrity, DATING, Latest

anthony-woe-is-me   This should have been the last episode of the season. There is no other episode that has come close to this one and I doubt it ever will. It’s hard to describe how shocking this show was but I’m going to try. Here goes….

So I knew I was going to like the episode the minute I saw the Catfishee. Anthony was in the war in Eye-Rack, had been pensioned off after a hip injury and been awarded a purple heart. I didn’t know what most of this meant but I knew that it was big. So you see, he is not just a catfish hero but an actual war hero and life hadn’t been easy for him. He was kinda cute too if you like two shade hair, street chic and joshua-300x168emotional.

He had met Mississippi mudpie Marq online. Those lips, those eyes, that skin. Marq was hot.  He was hot! Anthony claims that he loved his personality and had told him things that he hadn’t told anyone else. These things were never revealed but I too would confess anything to those beautiful lips so I understand how Anthony fell hard. He may be a hero but he’s also a man with a pulse.

He met Marq online during his convalescence and it helped him to heal. They spoke for a number of number of months and before he knew it, he fell in love. His suspicions were first raised when he flew to Jackson, Mississippi for Thanksgiving and was stood up in a restaurant. He waited for 2 hours. He then got a message from Marq hours later telling him that he had been in a car accident and his phonejoshua 2 was off. Like seriously?

So our hero Anthony  contacts the Catfish people and they start their investigations. They find the beautiful, fully lipped guy whose name isn’t Marq. It’s Joshua. He skypes them and says that this sort of thing happens all of the time and he leaves a message for Anthony saying that it was never him.

When Anthony sees the video he cries real tears. He will never ever shag that handsome specimen.  I too was close to tears because by then I had seen the real Marq.

Cue the investigative part of the show where they found his twitter handle or something and linked it to the real person. Framel!


Anthony and the team go to Mississippi to confront him and it all gets drama queen-licious. It’s a must watch. I don’t know what happened to Anthony but he was ANGRY. And when Anthony was angry he turneanthonyd into Miss Toni!

My thing is why did Framel pick such a beautiful guy to be his online persona? Surely he knew that it wasn’t going to end well when Anthony found out the truth? And what does the programme say about our reaction to looks? Are we still shadist? Fatist? Tooth gapists?  Or are we just upset at the degree of the lie told by Framel? And  then he adds insult to injury by dragging his friend Lagarious. I mean, I was still reeling from having seen Framel after lusting after Joshua. It isn’t right.

I’m not going to spoil it any further but you need to catch it online. I wish you well. Don’t be too hard on Framel. He just wanted someone to love him for him so posted photos of someone else.
