According to the rumor mill Charlize Theron broke her engagement with Sean Penn by ghosting (aka, the act of never returning calls, text messages, or e-mails). “Charlize wasn’t responding to his calls and texts,” a presumable person told Us Weekly. “She just cut it off.” Ghosting might be the shittiest breakup method, but generally a person worthy of ghosting has really done something really, truly terrible. It’s worth noting again that Theron did it to Sean Penn, which might alone be a worthy reason. [Us Weekly]

Fran Drescher, America’s favorite nanny, wants the world to know that she and her “gay ex-husband” had sex all the time. While accepting a Stonewall award for her advocacy, the nanny named Fran joked:

“I have a gay ex-husband! People always say to me [of her ex], ‘How did you not know?’ He loves decorating and fashion and clothes, but we actually did have sex a lot. I didn’t know at the time, though, that in his mind he was fucking the bartender at Olive Garden.”

Olive Garden, you say.

No worries though, Drescher and her ex remain good friends and she pointed out that she’s happily remarried to “wonderful sophisticated straight man” named Maxwell Sheffield Shiva Ayyadurai. [Page Six]

Burn After Reading

I have a dear friend who was ghosted. It was one of the cruelest things I’ve ever seen and it took so much longer to recover that I think it would have from a “regular” breakup.

However, now that I think about it, if I could have put into words at the time the way I was feeling about the whole thing, those words would have been “this is so awful. Only an enormous shithead like Sean Penn deserves to be treated this way.” So: ha-ha.
