I admit it. I keep up with the lives of celebrities. Why? Because they're everywhere. Now, I'm not meaning this to be a snark post (at least, not exactly), because aside of being put out there for all the world to see, this stuff's none of my business – and a lot of these breakups make me sad. Okay, some of them make me happy, but I'll still try to be nice while talking about the 8 big time celebrity breakups this year. These are the ones that really caught me by surprise.
1. Sandra Bullock & Jesse James

This one was horribly sad, and it came as a huge surprise. The timing was also terrible. Sandra gets so much acknowledgment for The Blind Side, and then sudden her marital problems usurp her performance. Jesse James was an idiot on this score. Or maybe that's just me, because I love Sandra Bullock.
2. Jenny McCarthy & Jim Carrey

This one was terribly sad as well. I mean, these two were like a match made in heaven, and they were so cute together. I read somewhere that the breakup was a natural one, because they felt they just outgrew each other. I can understand that – but I kind of hope they grow back together over time.
3. Ryan Phillippe & Abbie Cornish

This one was not so sad for me, but that's because I obsessively adore Ryan Phillippe and don't like him with anybody. I even got a little snarky jealous over Reese Witherspoon, and I adore Reese Witherspoon. Frankly though, I wish those two would get back together; thus far neither of them have been in a relationship that's lasted as long as their marriage to each other, and they never quite make it to the aisle with their respective partners.
