Romance Rumors and Rumblings

I'm thinking of starting a new feature here on Livin' the Dream called "Romance Rumors and Rumblings" aka Triple R. Because in the world of celebrity gossip, there are never enough stories about who's hooking up and breaking up these days. So welcome to the first installment. I'm taking a page from Phil's blog and turning this into a weekly feature composed of all the best (and worst) romance rumors from the week.

Speaking of Phil, no rumors here. He and The Shelbs are engaged! Giant Livin the Dream shoutout to the two of them.

Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon might be broken up. I say might because this is one of those "a source close to the couple has revealed" stories. Their reps are denying that they've split up so I guess this is still a developing story but I wouldn't be surprised if it ended up being true. Personally I think Jake Gyllenhaal (who might have more unnecessary vowels in his name than I do) is getting a little tired of waiting for Reese to be "ready" to marry him.

Don't get me wrong. I am a huge fan of anything Reese Witherspoon does. But she talks an awful lot about not being "ready" for another marriage and I don't get what's holding her back still. I understood at first that she was being careful because she had just gone through a pretty public and not so nice divorce. However, that was almost four years ago. Then here comes a guy who helps you through that, who has been there for your kids, and seems like he's a pretty upstanding guy. So what's the problem? If I'm Jake I'm starting to get a little irritated I think.

Chelsea Clinton is engaged. That's all really.

Apparently Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are on the rocks too. Maybe I'm not reading the right celeb gossip sites, but how did I not know about this "tell all" book about them? Brangelina: The Untold Story of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie comes out tomorrow and predicts they will be split up by Christmas 2010. I don't see it. I think they both are finally doing what they want with their lives and have the family that both of them, Brad especially, have wanted for a while. Yes I'm sure things in their life are crazy but that's pretty standard when you're mega-superstars and have like 10 kids. You have to admit though, they've slowed down a lot. Shoot this time last year, Jolie would have been pregnant again. You don't hear as much about them which is why these rumors start up most of the time. Who wants to write about the great charity work they're doing when they can make something up about their distressed relationship? They're starting to be a little bit boring and ::gasp:: normal. Let's look at the stuff that they allegedly fight about: the kids, the messy house, the nanny, politics. Hate to break it to everyone but I'm pretty sure this is what every normal couple argues about. In conclusion, everyone needs to calm down.

Finally, George Clooney introduced his girlfriend to his mother the other night. So could this be it for George Clooney's bachelorhood? Could he finally have found The One? Calm down people - they've only been dating for five months. But still, when mom is brought into the picture, traditionally that means things are pretty serious. In a way I hope George Clooney doesn't ever get married. It's totally part of his allure and what makes him so mysterious. He stays out of the spotlight, he's aloof, and he just doesn't really have relationships. It's his "thing".

So now we have the predictions section of our new weekly feature. I totally just made that up:
Reese and Jake split up: 87% that this comes out as true
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie split up: 32% that this comes out true
George Clooney marries his new girlfriend: 50-50. He's tough to read.
