Richard Gere splits from wife, and more news to note

Today's news you might've missed:

  • After reportedly living apart for "some time," Richard Gere and his wife of 11 years, Carey Lowell, have made their split more official. A "friend" of the couple tells People magazine that they've separated. Gere's rep has no comment. [People]
  • Here's hoping new couple Nina Dobrev and Derek Hough have better luck with love - if they are in fact dating. [Us Weekly]
  • Wealthy fans of Nirvana - or at least those with good enough credit to get a loan - will want to pay attention: Kurt Cobain's childhood home is up for sale. The Seattle-area bungalow is listed for $500,000. [NBC News]
  • According to "Bond" author William Boyd, the "Bond" films are starring the wrong Daniel. Rather than feature Daniel Craig as 007, they really should've tapped Daniel Day-Lewis. [Telegraph]
  • But here's a role you can't argue about being miscast: Bryan Cranston will return to "How I Met Your Mother" as Hammond Druthers. [E!]
  • And while Cranston's doing that, his "Breaking Bad" co-star Aaron Paul is going to star in the movie version of the popular video game, "Need for Speed."

    What's the deal with so many people using "too" instead of "to"? I know it is only a comment section but it is so sad how spelling has deteriorated. No, I am not an English major either, just trying to teach my 6-year old the difference and she is picking up on it.

    Ha! Bet you guys miss me now. Blog is just full of trolls and dating sites, like I predicted. You can thank the troll vixen for stopping my troll busting. Didn't she say she was done trolling? Ask M.A.P. how she enjoyed being trolled, especially after she stopped her "other" commentary. I commend you M.A.P. for that. The blog complained, and you listened. Kudos for that. Vixen should have never said anything about me, either. I was here to do the work everyone was crying for. Now, the garbage on the blog is totally on her. I think everyone should thank her. This has been a Marqueeland public announcement.

      Hey Peace! Was kinda wondering where you and Sadie have been. Cool that you took a road trip. I saw that house in person one time (I was up in the Seattle area to go to some concerts, one of which was Pearl Jam ( and they were totally awesome!), and as a fan I went to a number of places). From what I saw from the outside there is no way I'd even consider paying that much for it. She must be out of her damn mind. Perhaps she snorted a tu rd with extra NUTS in it.

      She won't get half a million for it unless some insanely rich crazy person buys it for novolty value. The old van Nirvana used to haul their equipment around in was being sold and they wanted some ridiculous amount for it, and noone bought it. Nirvana were great, but I don't see how moving into his childhool house would bring you closer to Kurt – he's been dead for 20 years. I settled for meeting Courtney.
