Could it be Brad’s goatee? Speculation abounds on what might be coming between supercouple Brangelina. Could Brad’s greying goatee connect to those fraying-marriage rumors? Angelina says publically that fidelity isn’t a must with her and that when she and Brad clash, she rips Brad’s shirts. Maybe if Brad would lose the goatee and cut back on the sauce, Angelina would stop talking about ‘seeing other people.’
Meanwhile, the Daily Beast sees something symbolic in the confirmed break-up of another Liberal-leaning supercouple: Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins. Perhaps more shocking than the rumors of 60-something Susan and a new 30-something lover are the revelations that Tim Robbins has been making campaign donations to right-wing Republicans like Michele Bachmann. Irreconcilable differences, anyone? (PS TO READERS: THE RUMORS ON TIM HAVE PROVEN UNTRUE; HE’S BEEN FAITHFUL TO THE DEM.S, IF NOT TO SUSAN… THANKS TO AL & TO CHEAP CHANEL FOR SETTING US STRAIGHT ON THAT…)
On a darker note, our far-sighted Blog fave. CAITLIN had predicted trouble ahead for heiress Casey Johnson (RIP) in a comment on this blog weeks ago. Following a disturbing new ‘Grief Tweet’ trend (begun by Ashton Krutcher upon the death of Britany Murphy), Reality TV star Tila Tequila ‘tweeted’ a tribute to her deceased love.
Oh, for the days of Bogart and Bacall. Is the era of SuperCouples gone for good? Who will survive and thrive? And who will be the next to veer into Break-up Lane? And can ‘grief’ really be boiled down to 140 characters?

PS: THANKS to A. Davis for letting us know that Tim R’s website debunks the right-wing donation rumor– ‘Say it isn’t so, Tim;’ sorry we doubted you!
