Buzz Aldrin files to divorce wife
Looks like it is a bad week for octogenarian love.
First 85-year-old Hugh Hefner loses his fiancée and now PEOPLE is reporting that 81-year old Buzz Aldrin has filed for divorce from his wife of more than 23 years.
The astronaut and former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant reportedly separated from his wife on Tuesday and is citing "irreconcilable difference" in the divorce petition filed Wednesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court.
Lois Driggs Cannon was Aldrin's third wife and could often be seen cheering him from the audience when he competed last year on "DWTS."

About this blog
Our daily cheat-sheet for breaking celebrity news, Hollywood buzz and your pop-culture obsessions.
I've read a few just right stuff here. Definitely price bookmarking for revisiting. I surprise how a lot attempt you place to make this sort of fantastic informative web site.
Aaaagggghhhhhhh! My Eyes! My Eyes!
Buzz Aldrin is one old sack of wrinkles. Gross.
Nasa gave her to him as a present from Area 51.
She looks like "Turbo Teen" in mid transformation. (80's Saturday morning cartoon reference, for those who flunked History.)
Did he bring her back from one of his space flights?
Maybe he's just scared. It is obvious they both have had cosmetic work done- but it loks like her face is about to snap- I wouldn't want to be around to see that either...Ewww.
Who gets divorced at the age of 81? Should this be in the Guiness Book of Records? For the oldest person geting a divorce, or maybe there is already someone there?
She just doesn't send his rocket flying anymore.
When I look at her in this picture, It reminds me of Batman, "Wait till they get a load of me".
T'pau lives! Dis is the Vulcan heart. Dis is the Vulcan soul. Dis is our vay...
They both need one more facelift. Then their cheekbones will be on top of their heads.
Someone should tell poor Buzz that leisure suits are a relic of the 70's.
This "article" mentions DWTS 100 times, but no moon landing even once. This guy is one of only 12 who ever walked on another world. Can't get cooler than that.
She looks EXACTLY like Sharon Stone would in 10-20 years.
I'm glad to see so many degreed scientists have the time to post their data on CNN tonight...
Could you imagine waking up at night seeing your wife hovering over you yelling BRAAAIIIINSSSS!
Buzz I think you need more than a lawyer for this one! Call up Bruce Cambell, he's got experience on handling these things!
Plus he could uses the work.........at least until the next evil dead comes out next year.....
One of these days POW! Right in the kisser! One of these days Lois..straight to the moon!
Wow! I had no idea he was married to the Joker.
I never realized he was married to the Joker from Batman.
Sorry about the divorce. The color of the suit is nice, and I think that is a Jerry Garcia necktie.....
How much work has she had done on her face? Looks distorted. Don't mean to be mean but she does
Was Buzz boinking Arnolds housekeeper too? "To the moon, Alice, to the moon!" -Art
YIKES!!!!!!!!! She is ugly. She's had one face lift too many.
numerology for Buzz Aldrin and Lois Driggs Cannon:
One more parting shot for her: GOOD FOR YOU BUZZ!!!
Not to mention all those facelifts were probably breaking Buzz's retirement nestegg! Before you know it he's be broke and she would be totally disfigured. Not a nice way to spend retirement!
Seems one too many facelifts did her in. And she looks like a terror. Buzz must have had an epiphany that life's too short!
Give Buzz's wife ten more years and her eyes will be BEHIND here ears!
Did Buzz pick his wife up in space???
Buzz Aldrin: "I wanna divorce. I wanna party!"
Buzz Aldrin's wife: "But you're 81. You're an old man."
Buzz Aldrin: "I don't care. I wanna party!"
Ha, The Jocker`s sister.
Why are they divorcing now? Did they want to wait until the kids died?
Buzz..................is this person the one you dug up from a crater? One step for mankind is MOON MAID?
what they do... the pocket watchin.. they pocket watchin
Most of the comments are so cruel. How does anyone know her age? It is not mentioned in the article and plastic surgery is also not mentioned. She may be much younger and has prematurely gray hair. He looks his age and beyond.
I was wondering what this story was doing in the entertainment section. After reading some of these comments, I totally understand Haven't been so entertained in a looooong time!
You see, now that your old and not very pretty like I am I don't want you anymore. The wedding vows really didn't mean
till death do us part, in sickness and health. It really means until I'm tired of looking at you and I've found someone else.
Oh my – She looks like she ejected at high speed.
That's an odd photo. He looks like he has a square, huge body and she looks...well, excessively "altered".
Still, the guy walked on the moon. Not even trying, he's 20x cooler than I'll ever be. Oh, and he punched out one of those conspiracy wingnuts (that, alone, gains him an extra 5,000 points).
divorcing at age 81... I'd just try to wait her out...
I'd divorce her too.......I feel sorry for him having to wake up next to THAT everyday....surprised he didn't kill himself cause of her
Let's look at his face! He looks like he's had more than a few Botox injections and maybe other enhancements!
Divorced in their 80's? Did they want to wait until the kids died?
How is this "Entertainment" again? Oh, now I see....
Any divorce is sad, but when he was on Dancing With the Stars, every time I saw her I thought she was the plastic surgery victim of all time. Affluent husbands will do themselves and their spouses a favor when they stop saying yes to the ladies' demands for multiple operations. He may have had work done too, but she looks really bizarre.
Isn't that Jack Nicholson as Batman's Joker standing next to him?
I have seen so,me horrendous plastic surgery botch jobs but she is really a mess...
He looks terrified to even stand next to her. No matter what age no one should have to be with a Gremlin that long if they are not happy looking at Gremlins. That woman gives me the creeps...AHHH
It's a major shame that after so many years together that they are divorcing!
Cnn comments acts as a blackhole comment go inbut never come out .is it .Hey guys take a break from the negativity and check out this site i
just won a free Apple ipad 2 visit freeappleipad2(dot)co(dot)tv
Jeez,all I can think of is their face jobs.Both are lifted just a little too much.She looks like an alien and He just looks unnaturally young.
After 23 years? C'mon, that's outragious.
awe man... don't DO IT!
Hey, she could always marry Hefner!
I hear he filed right after she said to him "...oh, and by the way, I faked all of 'em, JUST LIKE YOU FAKED THE MOON LANDING!"
Why can't both the real moon landing and the fake site be correct. If a UFO shows up in the real moon footage then flick the video feed across to the fake site. Would explain why Buzz nearly killed everyone onboard to land at at exactly that site. Also explains why NASA would not give the TV networks a direct feed, why the footage cannot be found. In fact just about every single anomally fits this scenario.
The thing about this story is that Aldrin is a mental case from long ago. He is bipolar and the wife that he has is probably a very nice lady...it would do him well to take care of her and stay with her. Looks have way too much influence in the lives of modern Americans all in all who are a very large bunch of SHALLOW PITS!!!
I'm sure he's just divorcing her because she's creepy to look at and he can't afford anymore plastic surgeries for her.
Oh Lawdy mercy! She looks like a Bratz doll! EEEEEEEEK!
Everything below the upper lip looks pretty damn good for a woman of 70+.
Agree with Sarah only I think they've both gone under the knife a few times too many. Just sayin'.
could it be that they just didn't recognize each other any more?
Bpy, she's had some facial work done. When your mouth resembles The Joker's, you know they've pulled too tight. And her eyes are like slits.
Remember what you will look like at 80 years old before you make fun of her looks.Unless you can afford plastic surgery at that age you will have wrinkles and look like shriveled up pruine.Remember medicare,medicade and social security doesn't pay for plastic surgery.
wrinkle is far better than plastic surgery period. people make fun of her because of those plastic surgery works that make her look like Joker! She will look far better with natural wrinkle.
I think she looks just like Madame http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YdVZ2mAO5_w
Why are there so few comments on this story?
She probably looked better on the Moon where there is less gravity! OMG looks like her face is melting like in "Raiders of the Lost Ark."
Look at his wife, that is what Madonna is going to look like when she is her age.
Buzz Aldrin sends third wife back to the planet Zardoz.
Everyone wants to look good ("good" may be what they think they look like). Lots on her plastic surgery-her business.
When you're that old, everyday is a bonus-you win automatically. No one knows what goes on behind closed doors.
It could be him or her that's a big drag. Frankly, I don't want to know about celebs too much. It's all the same:they're
human, make mistakes, may sneer at you when they meet you, may be great, special people, whatever.
A man had the courage to fly to the moon-I salute him. A woman had the courage to endure years of a possibly
egotistical, overbearing hubby (not necessarily in this case) I give her the "Lifetime of Suffering Achievement Award!"
Good....Lord. I can see why.
Now, if this lady was your grandmother, I dont think any of you would be saying such things about her. Some couples just have different opions that dont go the same direction. They fall out of love and thats that. Just because he did make it to the moon doesnt have anything to do with her.
If this lady were my grandma, i would tell her not to do any plastic surgery on her face! it never ever looks good.
Is that the Joker next to Buzz?
It's Spocks great grandmother!
Well, the sad thing is that one (or both) of them will be lonely as they enter their final years. The good news is that maybe that's what s/he wants... I wonder if one of them was playin'...
I just can't imagine these two in bed ever...eewwww...It would be a case of a 'double bagger'...he would have to wear a bag in case hers fell off.....maybe Hef's g/f ran away to be with Buzz......Is buzz short for Buzzard?lol
To the moon Alice!!!!
Buzz Aldrin is a self-centered petty man, in my opinion, because of his well known resentment at not having been chosen to be the first to step onto the moon, he intentionally and selfishly did not take one single picture of Neil Armstrong on the surface – thus assuring that all pictures of astronauts on the moons surface during this historical event would be of him alone. (Not including the very poor quality images from the automated exterior television cameras and pictures taken inside the LEM).
It is human nature to take pictures of your companions on trips to new places – we all do it, as did Armstrong and every other astronaut to walk on the moon or who has traveled to space with another person/s and a camera – so he can't use the excuse of excitement or forgetfulness because of the distraction of being on the moon, Which he most likely has. Disclaimer: (As he has shown he is prone to litigate).
All comments are my personal opinions derived from comments by others involved and from observations of Aldrin's actions.
Wow, he likes to carry a grudge. He should get over it; it was more than 40 years ago.
I was about to say he got tired of her calling him out on the fake moon landing, but then I saw the picture above...EEK!!
wow -take my wife.....overtaken by many moons, please!
His wife looks like an alien, can you blame him?
Hey guys take a break from the negativity and check out this site i

All Buzz needed to do was put either a blindfold over her eyes or a paper bag over her head. His way's gonna cost him big bucks!
He got caught with my balls in his mouth.
He said she was just too spaced out.
Good move Buzz – what a dragon!
The way his character is described by his former colleagues (and by some friends of ours unfortunate enough to meet him) the third "Mrs. Buzz" will be better off on her own.
Wow....sorry proof of the old adage, "Men age like wine, women age like milk......"
A stealey eyed missile man like ole Buzz,...why...with a tie like that, he'll probably bounce back faster than you can say, "The Eagle has landed."
Not to self: DO NOT do plastic surgery on the face. They NEVER come up good on ANYBODY.
Hey guys take a break from the negativity and check out this site i just won a free Apple ipad 2 visit freeappleipad2(dot)co(dot)tv
Waking up on a Saturday after a long week at work to this picture....OY VEY! And I ain't even Jewish!
Guilty pleasure reading all this 🙂 – ya'll boys are bad-bad-bad
This is the first time I've seen or posted a blog. I'm appalled by the flippant comments from people who've never done anything with their lives and are such "know-it -alls" Buzz fought in Korea, knocked down a Mig, went to the moon and was and still is a great guy--we've all done things that that can be criticized haven't we???
SO THAT MONKEY IS OUT!!! HOOPLALALALAL........
I can't blame him...look at her..She had more plastic surgery even gravity is giving up trying to fight her.
If you read the book, "Lost Moon", he talks about missing his fourth scheduled EVA because he was back inside the LEM giving Neil Armstrong a BJ.
She looks like the Grinch.
NASA program got cut so he can't take her back to the moon. W0W she is rough.... This time I'm thinking he can trade up just a little...
He heard Crystal Harris is back on the market.
Wow, what a bunch of hateful remarks. She actually wasn't too bad looking when she was younger. Some of you might not age too gracefully neither and it might be possible that one of you might end up with a bad plastic surgery job. Who knows. But whatever she looks like, its sad when people who have been married for so long end up divorcing.
So Buzz has been to Mars and back..............................
A man ahead of his time
That's one scary-looking woman.
Buzz Aldrin certainly did go to the moon, and most likely wished he had stayed.
maybe there is problems on the launch pad.
Did he tell her to fly to the moon.....?
Sad, real sad. I guess he was inspired by old Hef, who proves that you can be a living corpse and still be really hot with young chicks.
Honestly ur going to die in 5 years.... you want to be alone. That chick has stuck by u......
Why do midgets laugh when they run? Cuz the grass tickle their b-alls
He had a lovely first wife, the one who married him when he was a low ranking officer and who encouraged him when he was a nobody. He divorced her after he became famous. This third wife does look a little different from ordinary women. Why is he divorcing again?
Good luck Mr. Gorski.
What's the point? He's 81yrs old how much longer does he really have to live? Besides, at this point she's about as good as its gonna get for him....
Okay, I'm not trying to be mean, but what is that standing to his right?
My mind actually screamed 'GAAAH!" when I first looked at the pic.
Yeah, what you said! Not trying to be mean but...OWACH!
Look at that face, obviously he brought her BACK from the moon.
That is one evil looking mail order martian bride.
This is entertainment? Why?
"One of these days Alice....POW ... to the moon"
Buzz got a tad upset when he found her weiner e-mails.
As Jerry Garcia said, standing on the moon, I got no cob web on my shoe.
His third marriage is ending? Gee.. who is the one common factor in all of them?
Best advice, don't get get married. As Warren Beatty said, just screw em all
Abandonment prone slüts?
Wait a minute here.....That's big new and it is happening the same week the Heffy is being let high and dry by his great grand daughter/playmate/wife to be? I say some magic has happened behind the curtain. Next picture will be the two weirdest looking person on our solar system looking at each other saying "I should" unstead of I do!
How are the odds we will see both of them semi naked on the cover of his magazine.
Now tha'ts a really really scary tought!
Well, money even trumps leaving your footprint on the moon. I mean look at what Hef almost got compared to what he got. Though to voice a minority opinion, she isn't that bad for eighties.
buzz's wife probably did the surgery to look younger for the old buzzard himself, who she is married to. Obviously, he is the one who thinks it's always greener on the other side with 3 marriages & divorces.
That'll be cool when someday we have a sufficiently advanced technology to head back to the Moon...
Oh come on, if you're 81, just ride the pony all the way to the end of the trail. What are you going to do, get a new lease on life?
Is it my imagination or do they look like an older version of the Addams family members?
So he said, "buzz off", just like that?
All you youngerr folks will remember Buzz Aldrin by this story. I prefer to remember him by his description of the moon, "Magnificent desolation." He has done something only twelve men have done in history, walk on the moon. For that alone, he deserves respect and admiration. I hope that future generations remember him for that, not his marital problems.
Dont worry, a week after his divorce no one will even remember it, and by tomorrow the commenters on here will have forgotten this blog even existed.
Is it me, or does he look terrified? She appears to be Cruela Deville's eviler older sister.
You hit the nail on the head with that one.
I see now why he was a alcoholic and battling depression! I would be drunk all the time just so I wouldnt be scared when I woke up in the middle of the night and she is smiling but still sleep!!
I don't blame him one bit... I think he wants to live a bit longer instead of risking a heart attack every time he woke up next to her.
Americans are profoundly ignorant of their history, and the really inane comments on this site prove it. Aldrin was directly involved in the most significant historical event in the lifetime of everyone living, but the trivial article and even more trivial comments here suggest most of you were born yesterday.
Fortunately, I didn't go thru life blind,deaf and dumb (and I'm not talking about physical handicaps). I had the honor of meeting the man in 1969 and regret that his life didn't go so well afterwards.
Bravo, 14Mickey! I'm glad to see that there are still some of us who appreciate the courage the men of the early space program, from Mercury through Apollo. Too often, modern heroes are actors or athletes, not people who have actually accomplished world changing events.
Thanks for your comment, GDBnNH. Nice to see there's still some people out there who remember what America stood for.
I hope they'll both be happy. I really like Buzz. And yes he did go to the moon. He's been a real trooper for the manned space program and its public outreach efforts. Neil Armstrong has been a hermit by comparison. Hard to come down to earth once you've been on terra luna. God bless 'em !
A couple of poster children for plastic surgery gone wrong. What's with people? They'd look better with the wrinkles. Ugh!
WOW, she is scary looking.
I can see why BUZZ let this one go...she looks like Jack's version of The Joker!
How does this belong in "Entertainment"?
Geesh!! One more facelift and she will have a goatee.
Ouch, you guys are brutal with the wife comments. Tough crowd.
I just like to that Mrs Aldren! I haven't laughed til I cried like this in quite a while! These comments are too funny!
BUZZ is such a blow hard...wrapped up in himself...she should have left him.
Silly Buzz, takes some dance lessons from young professionals, and suddenly he imagines he's the catch of the year. His wife looks very lovely for her age, and someone commented she would end up in an apt. with lots of cats, if she does she'll be happier than ending up with Don Juan.
Man, did he bring her back from Mars or some outerspace planet.....
Holy moleed. That woman looks like someone attached a corkscrew to the back of her head, started twisting until she screamed and sliced off whatever came out the middle. If I had to wake up to -that- every morning I'd run screaming from the house.
That poor woman! Feeling so insecure and so preoccupied with external appearance that, at her age, she feels the need to fight it to the nail... One more face-lift and her eyes are going to be clear on the sides of her head and her nose will flatten from the pressure!
As for Mr. Aldrin, I remember him having a more introspective side to him, no doubt inspired by the beauty of the universe he got to see closer than anyone of us. That the two are finding themselves incompatible doesn't surprise me. Maybe she asked for one more surgery and he dared said no?
Yeesh! That lady has some mug on her...
Ugh, frightening! I'm guessing Kenny Rogers' plastic surgeon is still practicing...
Yes, she has a bad face lift; however, he probably convinced her to get it hoping he would have someone younger looking on his arm. And, he is not a prize!!!
I can understand "irreconcilable differences." Just how many surgeries can a husband be expected to tolerate? As already noted multiple times, she looks like a Speilberg alien. That's supposed to be attractive? Good for you, Buzz!
OMG, she looks like Jack Nickolson with a wee bit of photoshop magic. Buzz is almost always out on tour...I think he just came home one day and saw who'd been keeping his house clean while he was away and decided to clean house himself. Woof!
Maybe they could no longer take each other to infinity and beyond.
I would divorce the Joker too. Yikes!
He's going to hang out with Hef.
I am sorry to say this, but she is the poster child for too much plastic surgery.....that picture took my breath away, and not in a good way.
Is Cruella upset?
AWWWWW! did he cheat? Btw, wife looks like cat woman; that might scare the crap out of him 🙁
So, who does he think wants his saggy old asss?
I'm not for or against plastic surgery or other kinds of surgery but I agree with those who observe she looks like she is from outer space.
Check this one out. She is basically an OLD Angelina Jolie.. that never stopped... Angie is going to be scary like this, too.
So, is this one small step for Buzz, or a giant leap?
Wow, I wonder how many Dalmatians she hates.
These are some of the funniest comments I have ever read on a comment section.
These old bags need to stop it with the plastic surgery. She looks like an alien he brought back from the moon.
It's really sad and hypocritical in our warped society straight people can marry and divorce multiple times while gay people can't even marry once! I believet divorce mocks marriage and it really should be outlawed until we have full marriage equality in the USA.
I don't understand why people get divorced after 70.
For the same reason as people under 70! Why is this so hard for so many people to understand? Why do you think older people should have to stay in unhappy marriages until they die?
SHUT YOUR LEGS GRANDMA,NO ONE WANTS TO SEE YOUR SILVER COTTON CANDY
When did Old Rob Schneider marry the Joker's sister?
Wow, Donatella Versace has NOT aged well.
That is one creepy looking women.
My grandmother? Most illogical.
What differences are they not able to resolve, who gets to use the denture cup...
Dude time man up you've got to take care of your family, hey it's not like you're scared of cameras.
Yes, we DID land on the moon! All you Foxnews lovers neeed to pull your head out of your behinds!
KILL IT WITH FIRE!
No, not fire, idiot! Head shot! Double tap!
Plastic surgery much? or is he standing with the next Batman villain?
Maybe she couldn't take him to infinity and beyond anymore,just a thought.
She looks like Jack Nicholson's joker.
It continues to amuse me that the same people who claim to be all-American, and who claim to take the greatest pride in American accomplishments are also the most likely to deny all scientific evidence and thereby doubt that Americans landed on the Moon. But then again that's what Fox News' 'Fair and Balanced' means. Give two sides of a story equal weight, no matter how ridiculous and unfounded the Moon-landing-consipracy-theory may be.
WHAT IS THAT?
ITS CAPS LOCK, UR KREWSE CONTROL 4 KEWL.
It's so obvious that most of the comment posters here are boys (I can't bring myself to call you "men"). Comment after comment about how she looks like an alien or a moon monster. This illustrates how women are judged on their appearance in our society. Only a couple of people mentioned that he, too, is no prize to look at, but since he's a man, he gets a pass on the snarky remarks. Really, guys, just think about it. Just for one minute, if you can.
She looks like one of those illuminati reptoids the tinfoil hat crew go on about sometimes. And its been my experience that no one is more critical of a womans looks than another woman. Men may joke but women go in for the kill.
Mad Rapper, women? Really? User names like Scott, BobLeeSwagger, hoofawted, Joe the Plumber, David in Corpus, Sandman, phil, Dave, Jonas Mayhem, Dom, bob, just to list a few - right, women.
Don't forget, mom of three, ruth levy, patty, jo, sarah, jenny lee, sandy, and scary terry. I meant generally though, not on this blog, and most of the guys saying this stuff are joking. The most vicious things i've ever heard directed at women came from women.
When I saw that picture, all I could hear was, "I'll swallow your soul!"
Oh God I can't stop laughing. I loved the Evil Dead movies! You rock pod!
I cannot believe there are people feral minded enough to expect a person in their 80's to look like Angelina Jolie. All of you should post your pictures on this board if you are so bold to trash the appearance of a senior. You are all absolute trash, and likely uglier than a one eyed dog eating it's own hot sick.
She does look like a very, very old, very, very trying tooooo hard Angelina Jolie.. and in all likelihood, this is what Angelina Jolie will become... lols... check this out, and tell me u dont see a resemblance. http://www.zimbio.com/photos/Lois+Driggs+Cannon/Buzz+Aldrin+Lois+Driggs+Cannon+Beso+OK+Magazine/06nGZgTSjuc
Of what possible importance is this report and why are other folks private affairs of anyone's business?
That's a good point.
Why would anyone divorce at that age? You'll be dead soon anyway, and if you've already been together longer than half the commentators here have been alive....
Why should they be miserable just because of their ages? How can that possibly make any sense to you? He could live another ten or even 20 years. Why should the rest of that time be unhappy? Old people have just as much right to get out of a bad marriage as younger people.
To the Moon, Alice! To the Moon!
WOW Angela Jolie's great grandmother is still alive!!!
NOW that was damn funny!
Straight to the moon?
Wow...did he bring her back from outer space????
They are too young to be married and settle down. It's party time. Let the players play.
There is NO way I'm falling asleep tonight. There are some things you just CAN'T unsee.
Not only did Buzz go to the moon, he must have visited other planets where he picked up that thing next to him.
The most scary thing is she probably thinks she looks beautiful…
A former astronaut –on Dancing with the Stars–3 wives–too many face lifts for both of these folks... where has the concept of dignity gone?
"I'm ready for my closeup".
I am at work today and having a REALLY hard time reading these comments and keeping a straight face at my desk. I have just about peed my pants reading thru these.
What a shame. By the looks of her (and HIS?) face, and of course I'm talking about the VERY obvious and hideous facelifts...probably SEVERAL, it looks like they've missed the boat as to what is important in life.....AND missed the boat to be able to enjoy "growing old with eachother". Neither one of them looks comfortable with themeselves.....OR LIFE. As a child, I admired the astronauts–particularly the ones that were involved with Apollo and made it to the moon. What a shame Buzz wasn't more "down to earth" in his values.
Looks like she got herself punched in the face for asking him if he really went to the moon, like the last guy who asked
LOL Look at Aldrin's face. He's frightened. Some things even the astronauts can not handle.
Yeah, she IS frightening!
Dear Lord, What....IS........THAT??!!!
That's one ugly bigfoot he's with in that photo.
Buzz Lightyear can do better.
Jeez, by the looks of his wife you'd think he picked her up on Mars
My comment was meant for Troy.
Is it just me or does she look like an Alien?
He also looks like he needs to change the Depends. He looked at that face for 23? years. He deserves a divorce just for that.
What took the old Buzz-ard so long to recognize an alien? Circling too long?
That woman looks nothing like an earthling. lol
so, after I collected a few moon rocks, I bounced over the souvenier shop and got a T-shirt. With a big red arrow on it, it reads: "I went to the moon on vacation and came home with an alien". Oh, and I also got some space gum.
Just say NO to plastic surgery.....OMG....she looks awful.
His third wife and he still cannot get along with women at age 81???
Who said he can't get along with women? You don't know why they're splitting up.
Trading up for that Orion Slave Girl, yes?
He did go to the moon, now he is divorcing the alien that he met there!!
Three wives? Not much into family values is he, unless he's converted to Mormonism?
They are Scientologists! Close try! lol
i cant decide whos plastic surgery is more horrible looking with this pair...
The words are "can't" and "whose." Did you even finish 8th grade????
Houston we have a problem.......with her face !
That was terrible thing to say.
Terribly fun-neee! lol
Did he bring his wife back from outer space? She doesn't look like she's from Earth!
"Irreconcilable difference" - He ran out of Viagra and she ran out of Botox.
Ha lol, thats a pretty funny! That might have just been what the problem was, o yeah in addition to the fact that she looks like a horror movie. Ahh grandma I thought you were a Gremlin sorry
It's sad that they are breaking up, especially knowing how old they are. If people are unhappy, they should not stay together in any relationship. Life is meant to be enjoyed whether its with someone you love or being alone and in love with the love of living. You all are being too hard on your comments about their looks; beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and plastic surgery is always available and it can also make some people look worse. i wish them peace on their journey to the divorce court.
These people can't even conceive of growing old themselves. Let them go, if they live long enough they'll be the butt of someone elses' stupid jokes.
Explore this. Leave the man alone. He's been to hell – and the moon - and back.
Thank you for trying to bring sense and reason into the thread.
More like "irreconcilable face", look at that mug on her?!! Least she tried acouple of times to get a new one. Magine that at 5am waking up to ya. Yeah, he ain't no bag of freash apples either but she's down right pet cemetery scary....
Good Luck to both of'em...
With the huge ego this guy has, it's a wonder that he stayed married as long as he did. He even has a license plate on his car that says, "Star Buz".
Maybe he's leaving her because he doesn't recognize his wife anymore. He tries to return to those early feelings but can't remember who he had feelings for because of all the surgery.........geeze!
Does that mean she gets half of the moon?
She probably wants to take all his royalties from the Toy Story franchise. that and she could hardly give anyone a Woody
Here's something a bit less juvenile, for a change. I saw Buzz speak a week ago at a convention. He came across as borderline senile, unable to give a intelligible answer to any question posed to him after reading a talk from a teleprompter. Perhaps CNN would put some meat on the bones of this story and investigate Buzz's mental health state and how it might be influencing his behavior at this point. He's clearly not well.
So should CNN haul him in and give him a bunch of psychological tests, or steal his medical records or what?
It's very sad to go senile in the public eye...
I didn't think he really went to the moon, but apparently that's where he found his wife.
What a coincidence. I don't think you ever had a rational thought.
One of these days Alice, pow right to the moon!
I bet he caught her with the door greeter from Wal-mart
Yes Buzz went to the moon a space craft sent to the moon from India took pictures of the moon landing sites.,.They need to make marriage license like drivers license after 4 years you don't have to renew it if you don't want too. The worst that could happen is a bunch of lawyers would starve to death.
I'm from the generation of EVERYONE got married, but you are right on the ball with that Drivers License idea. Want to run for President?
It's a short turn contract. For X number of years and either party can refuse to renew before it expires. Then you part friends.
"a bunch of lawyers would starve to death" - Not a bad idea, that.
Yeah right, cheering for him on DWTS. She was hoping he would break his neck or have a heart attack. Sorry cat looking lady, no such luck. Not sure why people ever get married again after a first try. It sure does baffle me.
When did they have time to argue, before the early bird special?
I almost spit out my gum when I read that...
Why did he wait 23 years to get away from the Alien? The devil hopes she never dies.
She was rich when he married her. Clues?
Yikes!!!! Buzz, is that your girlfriend?? (Home Alone)
Haha. Best movie ever!!!
I dont think he went to the moon either.
Welcome to the generation of swine.
That generation never ended tj.The writers these days are nothing more than cheap pimps and greedheads.
Wow, your not some silly gullible person, like the rest is.
they both look they are pulled a little tight, but at their age, what is the freaking point of a divorce, geez! how much longer could they have, and why not just work it out? someone said she looks like a female joker, well they both are jokes, come on people – grow up – suck it up – and stick it out.
Maybe he doesn't want to spend the rest of his life, however brief it may be, in total and complete misery.
If people could just "work it out", nobody would ever get divorced. It's not usually so simple. And if they're unhappy together, why should they spend the rest of their lives - however long they might be - that way, just because of their ages?
It's probably the whole getting buried next to each other thing... that would be a pretty awkward infinite situation. Divorce now and they could each be single and ready to mingle at the graveyard!
He thinks he can do better now that he can "dance."
Too bad he doesn't know how to moon walk.
Good God she is scary looking.
There's no doubt, Buzz went to space. The wife looks like a Martian.
I'm going down. My first thought.
she seriously looks like an alien! maybe he picked her up on the moon
ha, did she go through us customs?
Ah – excuse me... HE doesn't look any better. Plastic surgery isn't supposed to look plastic...
She looks like a female Joker.....
Dear god she does, and I HATE commenting on peoples looks.
Too many face-lifts. Why oh why can't people just age with dignity? Is your self worth really that tied into looking like a 20 year old - which, by the way, you never will, and you will only look ridiculous trying.
Ohhhhh - does look bad - sorry - I don't like it when people make comments like this either...hard to take eyes off her...bad plastic surgery, maybe? Think it's because does not look natural.
The thought of them passionately getting it on is like anti-viagra.
"Why so seriousssss?" lol That was awesome. Great comment!
She looks like a reptile...
Her hair is very pretty and she looks like she has a sweet smile. BE nice
She looks like she should have a staring role in V. However they cancelled that show.
Ladies...you all look like sisters once you get plastic surgery. The lady downstairs from me looks just like Lois Aldren. Pretty soon the lady downstairs from you might just BE Lois Aldren!
If I ever get a reptile with pretty hair and a sweet smile I'm gonna name her Joker.
Check out recent pictures of Ivana Trump, there is some likeness of the joker in her as she ages.
is it me, or does her face look like the front of a Ferrari Enzo?
It looks like it got hit by a Ferrari Enzo if that's what you meant....
Ferrari is a good description with a decapitated cougar head mount on the fron like steer horns. BTW – can you get a divorce for being hideously ugly. The plastic surgeon should be sued for "bait and switch".
I think it's Bevis...or Butthead. One of the two.
And he's such a prize, right?
Knock it off, little boys. You'll be old too someday, if your mommy let's you live past puberty.
I was thinking an albino female klingon of the midget variety.
Your right it does! When I first looked at her I was scared that he did bring something back with him. Now that is what you call a face lift gone real bad.
Kind of a face...wait for it...liftoff.
Damned you Hoofawted...that WAS my dream car!
I love you Denizen Kate! You have it by the numbers!
Considering the money she spent to look that way, it is obvious a natural old face would be better but plastic surgeons would be poor and rich women would not have the impression money buys your youth back. Nothing does but wisdom takes over....except for these insecure old ladies. No help for them.
Just a cover up for the affair.
YIKES!! On which planet did he find her? Scary!
She needs to be slapped.
NOWS THE TIME ON SCHPROCKETS WHEN WE DANCE.
Cross between a chimpanzee and a wharf-rat
Well that did it. Im doo dooing.
She really is "out of this world."
WARNING WARNING! DANGER WILL ROBINSON!!!
Captain I suggest we set phasers on kill.
She mustve came from Uranus.
He is divorcing her because her doodee sandwiches taste like Hell.
I wonder if he really went to the moon?
He did. No you don't have to worry about that and spend your time looking for Bigfoot.
Nope, he didn't go to the moon. Van Allen radiation belt says no.
Yeah, sammyman. Alpha radiation is sooo deadly.
If Buzz didn't go to the Moon, then the Moon must have come to him with that alien mate. lol
Of course he went to the moon....he took his wife back as proof!
Well why don't you just walk right up and ask him.
Houston, we have a problem!
He should send her to the moon,like Ralph Kramden did to Alice.
Hey, JERKS, this is his 3rd wife, not the one he was married to when he went to the moon. Most of you probably weren't even born then.
Sure and I'll bet he said more than once...LOIS...I'M WARNIN' YA...POW...TO THE MOON!
She looks like the type that will end up in an apartment with 48 cats.
4 realz!! if that critter isn't proof that extraterrestrials have visited earth (and apparently married at least 1 astronaut from earth), i don't know what is! is that one of those "reptile" thingies? apha centaurian? zeta reticulian? maybe from uranus? good gravy! let this be a warning to all those considering ridiculous amounts of plastic surgery. apparently when you get older it's hard to tell what galaxy your from...
Sammyman never went to college.
Just curious. Why is this story filed under Entertainment? Is divorce entertainment?
Guess I don't get out much, but this is the most entertainment I've had in some time. These comments are hilarious! Probably a bunch of us guys clowning, while the women are going dumb dumb dumb. And our comments get dumber as the women get older!
No matter how stupid a thought can be, there'll always be someone willing to embarrass himself by making it.
That abomination fell out of the ugly tree and into a boiling pot of grease. She is a zombie!
This is entertainment?
Why is this entertainment news? When will private matters within families become private again?
Why is the tragic trial in Orlando considered entertainment in some venues? Is this society so disconnected that everything is available and perceived as entertainment?????
Good God!! To wake up every morning, roll over, and have that thing staring at you,,,Aaaargh!! That's enough to give an 81 year old guy a heart attack.
Select your plastic surgeon carefully...........
She looks like a vampire. Brrrrr.
I believe he did go to the moon...and brought her back as a souvenir.
I just can't picture those two in bed....ewwwwww..it would be a 'double bagger'. He would have to wear a bag in case hers fell off...
Rosie O'Donnel and Oprah at War?
i did not realize that they are scientologists... look at them here with travolta and preston...
Why is he called buzz aldrin ? Are americans so lazy to spell an extra letter & call him Edwin Aldrin. This whole thing to cut short names to as few syllables as possible is ridiculous.
Now ? Why cant we see the FLAG that was planted on the moon ? Nasa shuttles are struggling ?with shuttle ? How the hell did they send a rocket to moon with enough fuel and then come back ? Laws of physics and re-entry and radiation do not conform to this horrendous fiction ...
Read about the Apollo missions before you dismiss them. As far as the Van Allen belts are concerned; they are only dangerous if you stay in them for some time. Satellites orbiting in the belts are protected by thin aluminum sheeting. The Apollo flew on the edges of the belts to minimize radiation exposure; the crew was exposed to less than five (5) rem during the mission, less than getting a chest X-ray. If people want to argue this fine but back the argument up with something intelligent.
The reason he is not called Edwin is because he had his name legally changed to Buzz. Buzz was his nickname as a child because his younger sister could not say brother. I had to do a report on him in one of my science classes and found out all kinds of neat information on him, so I just thought I'd answer that for you!
Where in HELL do you think he found THAT woman? She looks like she came out of a moon crater! Plus she has only 4 fingers on each hand............my God..........IT IS MOON MAID!
That is a STRANGE looking woman. Can you imagine looking at that plastic face over coffee in the morning? Why would someone do that to herself?
Haha Dr. Van Allen himself helped plan the Apollo missions. You won't find a single qualified engineer or scientist who thinks the moon landing was fake. Just guys who live in their parents basements and make youtube videos. The Apollo trajectories were tilted to avoid almost all the Van Allen belts. It's not like it's hard to research.
Aldrin changed his name legally to Buzz, so that's the right way to address him now. Buzz is short for "buzzer," which was his little sister's attempt to say "brother." It's a nickname he likes well enough to prefer over Edwin. Of course you can also call him Col. Aldrin or Dr. Aldrin.
Sorry they're splitting. She was a nice lady.
