    Celebs should be banned from ever getting married. 99% of them make a mockery out of it. It's just sad.

    I wonder what percentage of landfill space is taken up by her albums. I'm guessing that she is personally responsible for more than half a percent.

    She, I use the term "she" loosely here folks, is sooo nasty looking. Doesn't even look like a female and acts more like a guy anyway. Thought she was gay? She has no business marrying a man, this whole thing was probably a publicity stunt, bet it was!! Why is this "thing" being called a "celeb" too?! She has't put out any music for years and she only has a one or two songs that folks know about. I cannot stand "It's" voice or face. Ugly, nasty looking, trash, and freak that just needs to go back to Ireland then get lost in a forest somewhere, never to be heard from again! What was this guy thinking, marrying this "thing" anyhow??? I mean, just look at the picture of "IT", how gross can anyone be?? Eww!!! Sinead has said she purposely shaves her head, so she LIKES looking the way she does. Whaat?! W H A C K O !!!

    Boy is she ugly. He's not much better. Are you sure she ended it? That is usually agreed on by both people.

    Sinead, now is your opportunity to go back where you came from and never show your face again. You are a talentless, classless idiot.

      You sure hit the nail on the head there, Saint! Sinead IS a talentless, classless idiot.

      I read on another news site that she ended it because she did it for him. She claims his inner circle of friends or people were harassing him about marrying her, telling him not to stay with her and the constant badgering was making him unhappy. He was not happy about her constant need for wanting to smoke weed either as he's a counselor for adolescents. So she claims between him being badgered by his close circle of friends and him not liking her need for weed, he was very unhappy around her, and since she loves him so much she let him go.

    Anyone who looks like this "woman" on purpous probably isn't wrapped too tight to begin with. Fat, bald, tattooed, and a wacko, not a great combination. Her "hubby" looks like he squats on pork swords and fudge scented septers, so he's probably not too broken up about it.

    Old Newt fooled around on his poor wife with cancer, then fooled around on wifey #2 with wifey #3. Now that's family values! Go conservatives!

      Every woman who fools with a married man should realize that if he would leave his wife for you, he will just as easily leave you for someone else.

      I think Newt's second wife realizes that now.

    The common thread in all of theses examples is that they are all liberals, which shows how muc the far left party of hate devalues the family.

      Oh you must be right: thrice married rightists like Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich are much better endorsements for family life. BTW, does the big fat idiot have any children? Or did he eat them?

      "...Not that there's anything wrong with that..."

      (and that would pose the question...did they serve "muffin tops" at the reception?
