Ordinarily, I couldn't care less about another Hollywood breakup but this one is so ridiculous, you have to laugh. Everyone knew the marriage was doomed when after their honeymoon the newlyweds couldn't figure out whether to live in his house in the country or her abode in La-La Land (I'm serious).
People magazine first reported the breakup, which brings to an end a whirlwind romance that began shortly before a surprise wedding in May.
The 36-year-old actress and Chesney, 37, wed in a small ceremony on the Caribbean island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Photos of the couple barefoot on the beach were widely distributed. They first met at the Concert of Hope tsunami relief benefit Jan. 15, where Chesney was singing and Zellweger was answering telephones, the syndicated television news magazine The Insider had reported.
Perhaps their high school like-crush will be reignited if they are to meet at a hurricane relief telethon. Until then, remember these laughingstocks the next time you read about another celebrity opining on issues of war, the Supreme Court and electoral politics.
