After 17 Years of Marriage, Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor Are Done

“Nothing lasts forever,” I once read in a LinkedIn essay, and now, after nearly two decades of marriage, Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor are over. The two met in 1999 while filming a pilot for a TV show that never aired, a dark omen that their marriage was ultimately doomed. (Just kidding, 17 years is a hell of a run and we should all be so lucky.)

In a statement to ET, the pair wrote:

“With tremendous love and respect for each other, and the 18 years we spent together as a couple, we have made the decision to separate,” Stiller and Taylor said. “Our priority will continue to be raising our children as devoted parents and the closest of friends. We kindly ask that the media respect our privacy at this time.”

It’s always sad when a seemingly steadfast Hollywood marriage bites the dust, but I have a hunch we’ll be seeing a fair amount of “NEW BACHELOR BEN STILLER HITS THE CLUB WITH FORMER DISNEY STAR,” and for that I am grimly, perversely excited.

An L.A. bartender is suing walking performance art piece Shia LaBeouf for calling him a “fucking racist” last month. Let’s relive that moment:

LaBeouf is seen above screaming at David Bernstein, a manager at Jerry’s Famous Deli, after a bartender declined to serve he and his wife, Mia Goth, on the basis that Goth already seemed drunk. LaBeouf doesn’t exactly come off as sober himself!

Bernstein is suing LaBeouf for $5 million, alleging in his lawsuit that the incident left him with “significant emotional distress, anxiety and fear,” which seem like pretty common reactions to encountering LaBeouf in the wild.

Hanson made a new song, and I don’t care what NPR says, it is not “fantastic.” It sounds like the soundtrack for a Gap commercial at best, and a Toyota Highlander commercial at worst, and the only reason I bring this up in the first place is to register my opinion that the Drumming Hanson, who might have a name, is pretty hot, even though he’s wearing exceedingly dumb jewelry.

Also, do you feel the brothers are trying to relive the most successful period of their lives (their youth) by featuring their kids in this video? Hey, I’m just here asking questions.

JujyMonkey: unstable genius

Aww, I feel bad for Ben and Christine. MrsJujy and I have been married for ten and been together for twelve years. I can’t imagine my life without her. I hope it’s amicable at least.
