Sandra Bullock's latest tabloid-whatever with hubby Jesse James sparked a lot of people to wonder if there's some kinda Oscars curse for Hollywood's leading ladies.

OK, well let's take that one step further: Is it harder in most relationships if the woman is more successful than her man?

It may be 2010, but just look at the pattern here, people. When some women are more famous than their counterpart relaysh-trouble often isn't far behind. Reese winning Best Actress seemed to be the beginning of the end for her and Ryan Philippe, and we actually attribute Jennifer Aniston's male woes to the fact she's just more successful than a lot of the dubious types who hang around her. There's Madonna and Guy Ritchie, Britney Spears and K-Fed.

Jeez, even Desperate Housewives' latest storyline has Mike and Susan troubles because he's not "the provider."

We could go on forever, but let's let you chime in.
