Eva Mendes Is Sorry for Saying That Wearing Sweatpants Causes Divorce

Late last week, Eva Mendes made comments to Extra about how sweatpants, worn by wives around their husbands, are the number one cause of divorce in America. Clearly, she was A.) wrong and B.) underestimating the power of the leisure wear lobby because now both she and partner Ryan Gosling have issued clarifications and apologies to lovingly-worn sweats everywhere.

Mendes posted the following caption to Instagram:

Dear favorite sweatpants, I was just kidding when I said you're the #1 cause of divorce. Everyone knows that orange crocs are the #1 cause of divorce. Either way it was a bad joke and feel terrible if you or anyone thought I was serious. Thanks for understanding sweatpants. Sorry orange crocs.


Meanwhile, Gosling took to Twitter to, like Mendes, try his hand at sweatpants humor:

In the exact words of The Wire's Omar Little, "Come at the sweatpants king, you best not miss."




Madonna hasn't been invited to meet the president and she thinks it's because she, unlike Beyoncé, is too controversial. Asked whom she'd most like to encounter, Madge replied, "Well, I've never met Obama. He probably thinks I'm too shocking to be invited to the White House. If I was a little bit more demure, if I was just married to Jay Z."

Yes, Madonna. I'm sure President Obama is always thinking about how shocking you are.[Dlisted]
