Katy Perry’s disastrous hosting of the VMAs may have American Idol producers in a panic, but there’s at least one person who’s entered into a relationship with Katy who doesn’t regret it.
Remember when Katy was married to Russell Brand? And when he told her that he wanted a divorce via text message?
Well, now he’s decided that he wants to reconcile.
Katy Perry’s marriage to Russell Brand wasn’t one of those lightning-fast Hollywood marriages where all that it takes is a few months to realize that off of the set or sober or whatever, they can’t stand each other.
No, these two were married for 14 months.
Not long, by marriage standards.
(Even in Hollywood)
What was truly sensational about their breakup wasn’t that it happened soon or late.
It wasn’t even particularly explosive.
No, what was absolutely ridiculous was that, on the 31st of December, 2011, Russell Brand texted to Katy Perry that he was divorcing her.
Again, this was in a text message.
The reasons behind the split?
It wasn’t building animosity. It wasn’t abuse. It wasn’t some torrid affair.
It was that, thanks to both of their careers and schedules, Russell Brand just thought that it was no longer practical for them to be married.
And apparently he somehow reached the conclusion that the best way for the two of them to part ways was to let her know the same way that a roommate lets another know that they’re running low on toilet paper, or coming home with a friend from work so now might be a good time to put on pants.
(I love text messaging, but — and take this from someone who’s found out about deaths over the phone and also had to break that kind of news — some conversations need to happen in person)
You’d think that, understandably, Katy Perry could have raged about their breakup and gotten some well-deserved sympathy.
Instead, she’s stated facts about their split and she’s written songs about the breakup, but she hasn’t roasted Russell Brand as many might have done.
She’s even made it clear that she was in love with him when they married.
Russell hasn’t bashed Katy Perry, either. Which is good, because he really has no standing to.
(Plenty of people have the high ground to say what they want about Katy Perry, but Russell Brand will never be one of those people)
Now, in an interview with Grazia, Russell Brand says that he doesn’t regret their marriage.
And then he keeps on talking.
“It was a very important and lovely time in my life. I don’t regret being married to Katy at all.”
A lot of people, post-divorce, pretend that they were never in love and that the whole thing was a mistake.
“I have very positive feelings about that whole experience and Katy is an extraordinary woman.”
Well, of course he does.
She’s one of the most gorgeous women on the planet.
And he’s the one who ended things on a sour note the moment that he sent her that text.
“I’m willing and open for reconciliation, any kind.”
Reconciliation is Katy Perry’s thing to open herself to, my buddy, my guy. The wronged party gets to announce when it’s time.
Then comes the worst line of the whole thing:
“Because if we can’t overcome our relatively trivial personal disputes in this world, what hope is there for us?”
Yes, he just said referred to their complicated relationship baggage as relatively trivial.
Isn’t that so typical of a rich male celebrity to not realize how in the wrong he’s been?
But you know what?
It’s been nearly 6 years, now.
If Katy Perry decides to let bygones be bygones, that’s her business.
If she were asking our advice … we’d ask if it’s worth it to her to have him in her life. If it would outweigh the old hurt feelings that his presence would dredge up.
(We’d also ask how he fares in her famous sexual rankings; that might be a factor)
But Katy Perry doesn’t ask for our advice. Understandably.
LaVar Ball’s company’s so hot right now … he’s got famous rapper’s kids wanting to work for him. Snoop’s son, Cordell Broadus, tells TMZ Sports … he’s totally down with the Big Baller Brand, and thinks he could be a valuable addition to their…
Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador have been at odds with Vicki Gunvalson for months on end, but is there any hope for them to kiss and make up?
That’s what Lydia McLaughlin was hoping for on The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 12 Episode 7 as she got set to launch her joint magazine venture with her husband.
When the episode gets underway, Lydia felt like it was time for Vicki and Tamra to put their beef aside in the hopes of partying like the good old days when they were less toxic to one another.
She manages to get them to agree on a time and place to meet up and hash out their differences. The good thing about Lydia is that she will not take no for an answer.
Things take a crazy turn when Peggy takes it upon herself to imply that Tamra is the one in the wrong and should probably stop bickering with Vicki and let the feud die… before it’s too late.
With Peggy trying to play a peacekeeper, will Lydia want to argue with her on camera? That sounds like a possibility. Two peacekeepers in the same friendship circle tend to go to war.
As expected, Tamra is not impressed that Peggy meddled in her feud with Vicki. And so, a brand new feud is born, but does that mean Vicki is off the hook?
Well, would there be a show without Vicki being trashed by her co-stars? I think not. Lydia stayed out of Peggy’s comments because when you think about it, what does Peggy really know about the women she is telling to get a grip?
Lydia has years of friendship on her side, so it’s evident she is just wanting her pals to sip some martinis together again. Peggy, on the other hand, is likely trying her hand at getting some air time.
Lydia’s relationship with Doug seemed to be thriving, but could part of that be down to the fact he is showering her with gifts?
I mean, it’s great they have the new venture and are making it a success and all, but he’s spending SO MUCH on her. Maybe I’m just a little jealous because she got two cars, but still, SO MUCH money.
Tamra got some time to shine and chatted about her daughter. Yeah, the one who has been trashing her mother all over social media over the last few weeks.
Tamra seems to think Eddie is to blame for her daughter’s self-imposed exile from her life, but is there some underlying issue we are privy to?
The main reason Tamra is pissed with Vicki is because of the crazy ass comments Vicki had about the marriage.
It’s difficult enough to put things in the past, but when you know people think your marriage is a sham, how do you really mingle with them without hurling a few cocktails in their direction?
With the growing tensions between Tamra and Peggy, will that allow Vicki fall through the cracks and forge a friendship with Tamra again?
Probably not, but I can’t wait to find out.
What do you think of all the drama?
