Look out! It's break-up season! Shia Labeouf and Carey Mulligan apparently called it quits a little while ago, and so did Penn Badgley and Blake Lively. I guess at least both couples got a little bit of time to get over things in relative privacy before word spread. These, I guess, are the benefits of not being a twitter addict who compulsively tells everyone the details of one's existence.
Prince William and Kate Middleton have been dropping subtle signals (like consciously walking together in front of photographers) that maybe marriage is imminent. It's interesting to think about real bona-fide royalty in contrast to Hollywood royalty like the people on Gigantic. Similarities in terms of not having chosen to be famous -- just being born into it and never knowing any other way. Differences in terms of -- can you imagine having no say whatsoever in what your future job would be, like Prince William did? I feel suffocated just thinking about it.
Whatever horror story you have from your prom or photo day at school, you might have a hard time beating Hillary Duff's: she lost a tooth at breakfast the morning of her wedding.

Remember "Against All Odds," the Season 3 Degrassi episode where Emma and Manny decide not to be friends anymore? (If not, check it out tonight @ 7:30pm.) Their "breakup" is pretty harsh.
It's hard to watch girls who've been best friends for years have a conversation like this:
Emma: You don't want to be friends?
Manny: Not with a stuck-up prude princess.
Emma: Good, because I don't want to be friends with the school slut.
Have you ever been through a friend breakup? (Feel free to share your story if it's not too painful.)
Did you and your ex-friend ever become friends again?
