It's been a rough week for some of our favorite celebs.
Sure, we've glimpsed the lineup for our biggest game of the year—the Oscars—and there were was lots of baby bumpin', fun fashion and Glee scoop to keep us pleasantly occupied. And the Screen Actors Guild Awards are Sunday!
But along with the ups came the downs, and we hope that those who did not escape the week unscathed stay strong and remember that plenty of fans are pulling for them.
Here's what happened:
LITTLE GOLD MEN: Awards season is really Oscar season (but be sure to check out all our SAG Awards coverage!), you know? Heading into the glamorous Academy Awards mix on Feb. 26 are Hugo, leading with 11 nominations; The Artist, next with 10; Best Actor nominees Brad Pitt George Clooney; Best Actress front-runners Meryl Streep and Viola Davis; Jonah Hill and Melissa McCarthy—and there's no sign of Madonna.
GETTIN' A LITTLE CRAZY: One day two people are in love and the next day...they're out? Heidi Klum and Seal weren't even on our list of couples not long for this world, so we were as shocked as anybody when they announced their separation. Color us even more surprised, however, when Seal started showing up everywhere, from PBS to Ellen to CNN, telling his side of the (both are still wearing their wedding rings) room-for-a-happy-ending story and, er, promoting his new album.
MOORE PROBLEMS: We wondered what Demi Moore was smoking six years ago when she tied the knot, but now it turns out she may actually have been smoking something! A scary confluence of circumstances landed her in the hospital, prompting concern from as far away as Brazil, where Ashton Kutcher was working and partying with models younger than he is—and that's young! He's back now, though, and is said to be very worried. Demi's 17-year-old daughter Tallulah is staying with dad Bruce Willis while mom, who is now out of the hospital, gets well.
WITTY REMARKS: Cynthia Nixon, bald as a cue ball for her role as a cancer patient in Wit on Broadway, had to start the week running (backwards) after her remarks to the New York Times Magazine about choosing to be gay made the rounds. For the record, Nixon has two children with a man she lived with for 15 years, so being with a woman now is her current preference. She did not say that gay people in general are gay by choice. So, now that that's settled, did we just end the controversy?!
