I began reading LaLa Anthony’s, The Power Playbook, at the top of the year and I easily completed it within a month. I wanted to do an entire segment on the book, which I still plan to do, but this could not wait.
There’s been a lot of love and lack of love throughout the years between celeb couples. In this special pre-Valentine’s Day edition of Then & Now, I’ll be showing some of my favorite couples.
Of course there are DAILY rumors on whether the couples are really in love or not, cheating scandal, and my personal fav the woman destroying something. Me personally? I don’t know them so I can’t say anything. From what they display, it’s love. There’s also Mariah & Nick, Brangelina, John Legend & Christine Teigen, Adam Levine & Behati Prinsloo, Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel AND MORE! Then there are the veterans that have 20+ years of marriage such as: President Obama and Michelle, Denzel Washington and Pauletta, Bill Cosby and Camilly, and others.
As for break-ups? Well there’s Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey. Jessica is now in a relationship with football player Eric Johnson and Nick is married to Vanessa Minnillo. Speaking of Simpsons, Ashlee Simpson is engaged to Evan Ross, but once upon a time was married to Pete Wentz. Then there was my all time fav couple Usher & Chilli. Infidelity was clear in that relationship with Usher pouring out his life on Confessions. Usher got married and then divorced and Chilli seems to still be on the hunt for Mr. Right. Then there’s the celeb cycles as I like to call them. There’s those celebrities that just seem to always constantly be looking for love and one name always rings a bell: Jennifer Lopez. Basically all of her relationships have been in the media from her high profile relationships with Diddy and Ben Afleck to 3 failed divorces J. Lo has always been in the spotlight.
In ‘Hollywood’ life it’s like love doesn’t seem to last forever. I commend those who stand the test of time in a world where breakups/divorce are the plague.
