Say it ain’t so! Ebony & Ivory super couple, German one-time VS model turned Project Runway producer & host Heidi Klum and her crooner husband Seal are allegedly on the road to splits-ville.
The hottest interracial couple since the days of Josephine Baker and her band leader husband are reportedly separating and divorce papers are imminent – citing the proverbial irreconcilable differences as a cause.
Papers are expected to be filed sometime later this week, states RadarOnline - no word as yet on which of the two will do the honors bringing an end to the seven year marriage.
The couple have four children together – three since their marriage in 2005 and one brought into the relationship which Seal adopted.
Although neither of their reps have officially released a statement, the rumors are everywhere and with this much fanfare it is certainly based in truth.
The couple have not been seen together in public since January.
We hope against hope at this time that these rumors are baseless and that the expected announcement this week will be calling such rumors nothing more than rubbish!
We love to see celebrities doing good for mankind. It’s a heartwarming. And when the cause is orphans and the celebritites are raspy crooner Seal, his beautiful German model wife Heidi Klum, Hugh “Wolverine” Jackman along with his love Deborra-Lee Furness, Anderson “360″ Cooper, Mary Louise Parker and Rosie O’Donnell, our left eye tears up. Cause that is a rainbow coalition of stars focusing on a worldwide problem.
The event was certainly not for the faint of wallet. We did hear that the 6th annual Worldwide Orphans Foundation Benefit gala was a pricey night. Upwards of $25k was the number thrown around…
This of course is something we can’t verify given that we were holed up on the Wall Street sidewalk – that’s about as close to the shinding as we were to get. But if true, that would suggest that they are truly committed to raising funds cuz that’s how much some folks make a year.
But why not aim to reach deep into the 2% of society and the likes of billion dollar companies? They should do something for the less fortunate.
And if we are running with that number, then they raised a whole hell of alot of $$$, cuz they packed the Cipriani house to capacity.
Occassionally I come into info that I take a chance on - making a go of a photo op. More ofter than not it pays off.
So when I got word that reality diva mom of “Jon and Kate Plus 8″ fame - comprised of a village of temper tantrum throwing kids whose mother just so happens to be newly divorced from a butt ugly ass man as she still rides the “reality star” train – Kate Gosselin, I thought it might prove interesting given that I don’t generally shoot reality show participants. Never mind that I have never laid eyes on her b4…
I dutifully waited and caught Ms. Gosselin leaving the Ted Gibson Salon on Fifth Avenue – with the shops proprietor, as they braved the cold to dash into a local MAC store some two blocks away and thought myself lucky for not having the herd surface at the moment of action.
Truth be told, I prefer to ask celebrities I come across for the photo as opposed to the “gangbang” styled pap scene. And I always try my hardest to let the scene play itself out naturally without any interference. The tactic generally results in my subject being somewhat agreeable to my endeavor and all are happy as we go about our business.
Gosselin was far from interactive with me inspite of my attempts at flattery over her new tresses – courtesy of and fabulously coifed by Ted Gibson – but I carried on as she didn’t appear shocked, put-off or displaced in any fashion with my presence. I hardly recognized her at all having not seen her in person myself during her long reign of tabloid coverage as the woman who spawned a litter preceeding “Octo-Mom.” Girl looked like she has been given a new lease on whatever make-believe reality she is existing and who the fuck am I to sprinkle salt on her Sundae.
But I still don’t get the reality show phenom. For the most part, shows like Gosselin’s now defunct saga are a vapid waste of airtime, (stay tuned y’all, cuz word is she is in talks with TLC on another one…) cast with a bunch of folk bending over backward to be the center of attention as they play out a make-shift reality for the cameras sake. There ain’t no reality in reality television – the key word in there being TV! Unless it’s Heidi Klum’s….
But the tabloids have sold it to the masses and middle America seems to swallow with little gag-reflex to show for it.
Having snapped the photos I needed, I left the duo to their own devices only to have the nights further coverage pop up online over the weekend to the tune of her dining at celeb hotspot Butter restaurant with an unidentified man (it’s Ted Gibson you idiots!) by a swarm of paps who had been tipped off to her wherebouts.
