Heidi Klum and Seal Call it Quits

Though I am a firm believer that no celebrities should ever get married, especially to other celebrities, I am a bit shocked that this particular union ended. These two crazy love birds are the sort of weirdos that are always going on and on about how wonderfully happy and in love they are. Heidi never does an interview that doesn't include some wacky quote about their spicy hot sex life. They even go so far as to renew their vows every year at a beachy location. These two really seemed to have the this whole marriage thing figured out. I can almost guarantee that these two would have been married much longer if they weren't so damn rich. This is one of those times in life when too many options is a real problem. You're pissed off, and you can afford to buy ANOTHER Manhattan apartment so you hit the road. Your lawyer is on speed dial anyway so you don't even have to find one. I'm sure an iron clad pre-nup was already in place, because celebrities already know from day one that it couldn't possibly last. How many regular folks with 4 young kids can just get divorced for no reason? Regular people just couldn't afford to do it so quickly and easily, so they end up weathering the short lived storm and continuing the relationship. If Seal was beating the shit out of Heidi, I could see them needing to separate, but they have already announced that they are parting on good terms and they are still best friends. They really love and respect one another, but they say they have "grown apart". GAG, I think I just threw up in mouth a little bit!

News Flash! Guess what Heidi and Seal, best friends who love each other is about as good as it gets for a married couple with 4 little kids! What were you hoping for? I'd say being able to tolerate each other is a super successful marriage. I'd bet if the story went any further, you'd see that even Prince Charming bugs the shit out of Cinderella and vice versa. Sure it was crazy hot in the beginning ( it always is), but that is not sustainable, especially with 4 kids. I'm certain this particular celebrity duo have multiple nannies at the house that do most of the heavy lifting when it comes to raising kids, but still, young kids are professional patience drainers. I only have two and there are plenty of days that my patience runs out before 10 A.M. That is just the nature of the family beast. If you can tolerate the sight of your spouse, you're doing it right!

In all honesty, I couldn't care less about Heidi and Seal (what the hell kind of name is that anyway?) It sucks for their kids and that's about the end of that story. I'm just saying that no couple will ever be happy if their expectations are out of control high. I'm a big believer in the idea that you should expect the worst and hope for the best. I'm married to a simple guy who very much enjoys sitting in bed with me, watching T.V. after our kids have gone to bed. He doesn't seem to mind being bossed around by the three females in the house and he NEVER leaves the toilet seat up. We annoy each other almost everyday, but we've been together 12 years and I'd call it a success. This from a girl who was voted "most likely to get married multiple times" in my senior year book. Good luck Heidi and Seal, the grass won't be any greener on the other side.

P.S. I was never that girl who hoped that the prom D.J. would play "Kiss From A Rose". I think that song is totally stupid! Sorry Seal :)
And Halle Berry thinks she's going to give marriage another go with the hottie from "Unfaithful" (oh the irony) who got snow-globed to death by Richard Gere. So, I'll write another post about their divorce in two years.


  1. What do rich people fight about anyway? They have people to clean and do the laundry. They have money to pay the bills, go on vacation. I wish they would share what the issues are anyway. Great post!

  2. AGREED.... "I'm just saying that no couple will ever be happy if their expectations are out of control high. I'm a big believer in the idea that you should expect the worst and hope for the best."
    Well said Stefanie.
