Have you recently taken up a new leisurely activity? For the general public, entertaining a new hobby is no big deal - it's admirable. Such new ventures provide the technologically savvy folk plenty of fodder to fill their blogs or other social networking spaces with.
We might not be seeing Simon Cowell's devious grin on this new season of "American Idol," but that doesn't mean we aren't seeing the once popular judge's name in the news. The most recent news involving the star has little to do with his hectic schedule as a mogul in the entertainment world.
A recent Fox Business report outlines several important lessons about divorce and protecting one's finances and credit score. This is the first of two posts on the topic, which will hopefully help you protect your best interests in the case of divorce:
It seems like just yesterday when "Desperate Housewives" and San Antonio Spurs stars Eva Longoria and Tony Parker were married. It was a Paris wedding that attracted media attention comparable to that of a royal wedding. The fairy tale wedding, however, did not solidify a fairy tale marriage. Now, according to reports, the marriage is officially over.
Sure, the lives of Hollywood stars might look easy, but one popular starlet has recently proven that struggles affect us all, whether we are blue collar workers or stars of a hit TV show. Blonde beauty and actress Jaime Pressly is in the midst of living out a string of stressful incidents in the eyes of the media.
It's been a story plastered all over the media: Kelsey Grammer, 55, is moving on from his third marriage and straight into his fourth. The public has become familiar with Grammer's soon-to-be ex-wife through the hit TV program "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," and for regular viewers of the show, it should be no surprise that the feisty star is not taking the split lying down.
Celebrity divorces not only attract a media blitz, but they actually open up an opportunity to teach the general public about family law and how different states treat family issues in court. In the case of Eva Longoria and Tony Parker, we are faced with a sort of déjà vu related to Sandra Bullock and Jesse James' recent Texas divorce.
According to sources, the three-year marriage between Eva Longoria and Tony Parker is nearing its end. Talk of the split began earlier this week when media suggested that Longoria filed papers in a Texas court house. But more credible sources have corrected that suggestion today, saying that the "Desperate Housewives" co-star did, in fact, file for divorce, but she filed in L.A., not Texas.
While the looming singlehood of notorious actor Charlie Sheen might not excite too many women out there who follow celebrity news, the fact that Sheen filed for divorce this week sure has the media interested. It has been a chaotic year for Sheen and his third wife, Brook Mueller. And it looks like the crazy year will have been the last of their short marriage.
With the divorce rate being what it is, the public is rarely shocked anymore to hear that a couple is getting a divorce. A recent divorce announcement, however, has caught many off guard - the many people who are devoted romantics and found hope in the works of both Nancy Wilson of Heart and Cameron Crow, the director of "Jerry McGuire."
