Oh no! First Hef and Holly, now Madonna and Guy?

Okay all jokes aside while eight years of marriage is like forty years by Hollywood standards, I feel bad for the kids. Hopefully that split won't become ugly. Why are they breaking up? What did Madge do to her face? I didn't notice it until the news last night. Not a good look.

* I had to edit this. I just read pre-nups are not legally binding in the U.K. and that is where they got married.

When I lived in L.A. my gym used to have E! showing on one of the TV monitors. There is the E! channel here in Italy and I happened to catch an episode of the "The Girls Next Door." I wonder what Italians think of this show.

One of the "girls", Holly, has broken up with Hugh Hefner (aka Hef). He made it clear he wasn't interested in getting married again or having more children. I'm not sure why she is shocked. Hef is 80, is still legally married and has grown children almost twice the age of the 20 something Holly. Hef said he was sad, they were sharing the same bed only a few days ago. The show is scheduled for a sixth season and Hef is looking for another live-in love. I don't understand why. I know with the plastic surgery and Viagra he would like to think he's still 30 but he's not. He still has two other girlfriends in their 20s, Kendra and Bridget, why add a third?

Would you become Hef's new girlfriend? Why or why not?

Become Hef's girlfriend. Ew. That's why not ;)

As for Madonna, sad indeed, but it seems there might actually be some truth to those A-Rod rumors (you might remember he and his wife recently split too)....

I have watched the Girls Next Door. You know how people slow down on the highway to watch an accident, that's my explanation. Would I become Hef's new girlfriend? No. I don't share. Not that kind of sharing anyway. I never understood that whole set up anyway. As for M and G, I'm actually amazed at how little I care. Sigh, I must be becoming jaded.

I'm sure Hef has enough money to find another young nurse to change his Depends for him. Hey, now that Madonna's free, he should try giving her a call!
As for the split, I'm not all that surprised. I've been hearing rumours for a while, and some of the stories have been shocking. It seems like they had quite the "turbulent" relationship. You know, Madonna has particular taste in men. So maybe the kids will be better off in the end.
Madge's face and body are scary. Too much Madamism going on there.

Petulia said...

Well, I guess divorces are in style. And I am sure we will hear a lot more about the Madonna- Guy business. Apparently they had no pre-nup and now Madonna hired the same lawyer that Prince Charles and Paul McCartney used!

michelle - ha. re: A-rod...I don't even know what to say.

joanne - I don't understand the get up either. Hef is an old man. My dad is his age but has a lot more pep in his step.

milanese - come on you know Hef thinks Madge is too old for him. :)

petulia - no pre-nup? Perhaps Guy will receive half of what they earned during the marriage.

I will say I am a closet Girls Next Door fan and am actually a bit sad about Hef and Holly (though she was delusional if she thought they were going to get married and have kids!). As for Madonna and Guy, I definitely feel the worst for the kids. Rumor has it she wants to move back to NYC so they'll be oceans away from Guy. As for no pre-nup...truly idiotic, I expected better from Madonna.

Become Hef's girlfriend? No way. First off, that's like sleeping with your grandpa and 2nd, I would want the relationship to go somewhere after a while. I'm not familiar with that E! show or it's characters, but I think it's a valid reason for breaking up with someone (but duh, it is Hef). Besides, he's looking to bring on some twins. Gross, 3rd reason stated.

Ah, Madonna. I guess I'm surprised they lasted this long. She seems like a woman who just doesn't want to compromise; you can't have a marriage and expect your husband to go along with everything you say or do. I imagine Guy (or anyone for that matter) would get tired of that.

jstele said...

Well, maybe Holly thought things would be different because she was madly in love. Maybe he would change out of love for her. I don't think she's a gold digger as some others have said.

I actually think some women do fall for Hef because he's a player. Some women like players. He's also a ladies man. The fact that he can get all those young women attracts more to him and the cycle continues. He can come off as charming on interviews, so he has that going for him. Yeah, I can see how some women would fall for him if they are into his type.

Maybe at some point, Hef will realize why he is into such young women. Then, he can move on to 30 year olds. Still young, but closer to his age:) I think that he has confused youth with vitality. He wants to feel alive and hot young women make him feel that way. He's actually quite intelligent, so I do wonder if he misses the intellectual stimulation that someone with more depth would bring. He needs to be around a sexy, older woman who has grace and depth to get a sense of what he's missing. Someone like Sophia Loren, but she probably wouldn't date him.

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

jessica - Wasn't Holly the number one girlfriend? Also I didn't realize he didn't allow them to date other men and they had a curfew of 9:00 p.m. I just read Guy did not want to move to NYC and that was the final nail in the coffin. How will he see his kids? I was surprised there was no pre-nup.

ninety9 - I couldn't be Hef's gf because, well, I'm too old for him and two, I'm not sharing him with other single women. re: Guy and Madonna, I agree with you, marriage is full of compromises. Guy was also sick of her trying to force him to follow Kabbalah.

jstele - Holly did love her Puffin. I don't think she is that good an actress so I believe she really thought they could have a life together.

I don't think Ms. Loren would be interested in Hef. :)

Hef is going through some tough financial times. I don't think young women will be stepping to an 80 year old man unless he still has bank. They can mess around with a player half his age.

Hef is very intelligent but actions speak louder than words. He is a control freak so he has to date a certain type of woman, much younger, not very educated, from humble beginnings. That is his m.o. I think back in the day maybe he was the man but now he seems a little sad to me.

Also he part to blame for that weird L.A. look of super platinum blonde hair, fake boobs and the full Brazilian (i.e. no hair at all) wax thing.

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

jessica - I just edited my post. Apparently pre-nups are not legally binding in the U.K. So even if she had one it would mean nothing.

Jessica said...

Hmm, that's interesting about pre-nups in the UK. Didn't Paul McCartney have one? Holly was definitely the #1 girlfriend and Hef had all sorts of crazy rules. I'm not sure if the other girls stuck by it, but I think Holly did, as she actually seemed in love with him. It will be interesting to see where Madonna's kids end up, have you been hearing all the rumors that her and A-Rod are having a relationship after all? Ah, I love the gossip!

glamah16 said...

Guy seemed like one of the few strong independant men that could handle Madonna. Its a shame. I wonder if he will take active ibnterest in David Banda, as the press makes it out that that was more her thing , than his.
I dont think I would be Hef's type, but I wouldn't mind being his Personal assistant( Cooking, planning the parties at the mansion, concierge stuff, etc). Would be fun. Im sure most of that stuff is just an act anyway and the girls are getting paid.

Anonymous said...

Hef already has 2 new girlfriends lined up. Twins. I think the trio is already out. Not just Holly.

Why do I know so much about this stupid show!?

Kataroma said...

Ugh- if I watched that show in E I think I'd throw up.

Shelley - At Home in Rome said...

Hef's girlfriend? I think I'd need a boob job first, wouldn't I?

I love the perma-robe he's always got on. What is up with that? You can live in your pjs? That's awesome!

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

jessica - Yes I read A-rod has been going to Kabbalah events. Mrs. A-rod is not happy. Sir Paul may have had a pre-nup but it didn't mean anything. That is why they were able to fight over the amount of the settlement.

glamah16 - I hope the kids don't get put in the middle. It's not fair. I'm not sure if the girls are making that much money. The head chef gig must be interesting though.

anon. - :). yes why do you know so much about this show? The entire trio is out? I think the ratings will drop. The show is about the women. Hef is tripping if he thinks people tune just to see him.

kataroma - haha, I think you would throw up.

shelley - Yes all his girlfriends have big fake boobs and you and would have to be maybe 8-10 years younger. I have read some really sick stuff about what he is into. I would not want to be his girlfriend. The pjs get on my nerves.

Jen of A2eatwrite said...

As for Hef, I'm with Michelle - ew.

In terms of Madonna and Guy - I was sad about that, too - again, due to the kids.

I really wish the Hollywood types would fully realize that children are not accessories.

I worry about the Pitt/Jolie relationship, as well, for similar reasons.

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

jen - I feel for the kids as well. Divorce is tough enough but to then be an ocean away from your parent? sad.

J.Doe said...

Madonna wants to live in NY. I think Lourdes would be happy because she will be closer to her father, but for the other kids? It will be hard.

J.Doe said...

OOPS! I published the same comment twice. I do feel bad for madonna's kids, but saying the same comment twice was not my intention.

Felicia said...

Would I want to be Hef's girlfriend? Sure if there was no physical/sexual contact (can you imagine pale sagging skin every night?! The Horror!) and I he bought a home for me in my favorite countries, fully staffed with at least a five-figure monthly allowance. I'd be his gorgeous, classy companion. Yep, not a problem. Ha!

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

j. doe - ha....

I do agree with you. It will be hard for the other kids.

felicia - :) unfortunately you wouldn't be able to get the things you desire without sleeping with Hef and the other women. And that my friend is high a price to pay. ha

Los Angelista said...

I've never seen the Girls Next Door because the premise just grosses me out... but I'd love to be a fly on the wall up in there when the cameras stop rolling. I've always sort of wondered if they really all sleep with him.

As for the Ritchie's, goodness, I was dying laughing over him calling her a granny and the tales of her slathering herself in creams and sleeping in plastic. It's all the stuff everybody sort of thought would be happening with her, but now it's coming out. I feel awful for the kids... and if she thinks A-Rod is gonna stop being a player and start drinking rice milk all for her, LOL.

nyc/caribbean ragazza said...

los angelista - Ritchie called her a granny? no he didn't! Well she did say some snarky things about him during her concert.

A-rod is not going to change for her. Please.
