Damn, I was going to buy stock in frozen peas but now they won't be flying off the shelves anymore.
Finally got that little bitch out of my hair. Our Little Josh could do so much better.
Love Always, Babs
8 years is longer than most Hollywood marriages last these days.
I'm glad she's getting away from him.
So sad that ladies stay with an abuser. Why didn't Babs force him into therapy?
r5 so am I!
lol at r3. Thanks for dropping by, Babs. If only James was a little punchy like his kid.
Josh has never been as hot as his dad when he was younger.
Does this mean the end of my favorite DataLounge poster, Diane Lane's Bag Of Frozen Peas?
[quote]Guess she got hit one to many times.
Babs should give her hubby an early Father's Day present and take out a contract on that prick.
Oh my GAWD!
I've meet Diane Lane, she's a lovely person. She deserves better.
[quote] I've meet Diane Lane,
Uhm, it's oh dear.
Diane's moving on. She's now dating Chris Brown.
Josh, call me!
She was so beautiful as a teen, I like her a lot. She's aged well. Glad she's getting away from him.
 Oh der
She sets off my gaydar
Can Babs sing at the OScars now with this new development?
He was okay; it was his obnoxious control freak stepmother I couldn't stand.
She needs to move to a run down villa in Tuscany and start over.
[quote] Oh der
Oh dear! Oh dear!
Great news, I'm happy for her
It felt like a kiss. Actually 147 of them.

A-List couple. Both Oscar nominees and/or winners. She ignores his indiscretions. Even public ones. He's HER beard. She's into the fillies. [italic]Josh Brolin/Diane Lane[/italic]
Nah, she's not gay. She's got plenty of issues though.
They were only married 8 years? Seems longer.
[quote]Babs should give her hubby an early Father's Day present and take out a contract on that prick.
What's that even supposed to mean?
Glad he finally was able to rid himself of that cunt. The way women cling to men. It's insane.
No way would a beard beat his client. Not gaylee.

A mid-season replacement: Rihanna's Bag of Frozen Peas.
Actually, Diane and Barbra are very close. Much closer, in fact, than Barbra and Josh. Barbra would have the entire Neiman-Marcus store in Beverly Hills closed to the public, and she and Diane would do all of their Christmas shopping every year by themselves. I'm sure Barbra paid for everything. She must have spent a fortune every year for them to shut down the whole store just for her and Diane.
Josh was on the cover of GQ a couple of years ago and, damn, he's all man.
RE 38 - Doubt she paid for Diane's gifts. Remember she's J_ _ _ _ h
R39, isn't he about 5'-5" or thereabouts?
Diane hasn't worked that much since she married Josh
What's going to happen to Diane & Babs relationship? Babs doesn't really have any other friends anymore.
Starring Richard Gere, Diane Lane and Olivier Martinez
Barbra loves Diane, but I don't think she cared that much for Minnie Driver.
Who does, R48?
I'm glad she left that ass!
Josh is tiny in person with a very tan face. He looks oompa loompa ish.
I just hope he doesn't fiddle with the China in Barbra's china shop and get the plates out of order.
Does this timing have something to do with Streisand's Oscar appearance?
Doubt it r52....the announcement is probably timed with the Oscars themselves though....that is a big entertainment story that will take the focus off the divorce. Had it been a slow entertainment news day....the divorce would have got more press.
Josh Brolin is 5'10 1/2" - that's hardly "tiny."
So blind items that can fit this?
I would fuck him in a heartbeat....and then do it again.
Where and when did they close a Neiman Marcus for Babs, esp. at Christmas time? An entire dept. store, closed for just 2 people? Doesn't sound likely.
They keep Neiman-Marcus open for Barbra after-hours so she can do her shopping in private without the public watching her. She's been doing this forever. Chanel does it for her, too, as do many stores.
I think it sounds very likely r57 I remember when I lived in LA 7 years ago and they would shut down all the boutiques on Robertson for Lilo.
They don't do that in Paris.
[quote]Diane hasn't worked that much since she married Josh
Is that really Josh's fault? She's at that dreaded age and she's never been a huge box office name.
She's one of my favorite actresses.
Josh has a huuuge head (on his shoulders); Diane probably got tired of living in his shadow.
[quote]They were only married 8 years? Seems longer.
You're telling me! I was working my ass off, it felt like twenty years!
You silly queens. Barbra was Yenta the matchmaker in this relationship. Unhappy that her new stepson was dating Minnie Driver, Barbra introduced Josh to Diane and made this match.
She's devastated - watch her pull out of the Oscars performance and blame it on "personal" or "Family" matters - not to mention having to sing live on TV for the first time in 20+ years - she's notoriously afflicted with stage fright.
Is Jennifer Hudson available to step in?
r58, a store staying open late is different than closing the store to other customers. Open late for a celeb, that is okay, but closing and not allowing other customers is not okay for other shoppers, esp. at Christmas time.
I have my own shopping mall in the basement. It only closes when Josh comes over.
I loved her in that Adrian Lyne movie where she gets ravished by the bookish French stallion.
He was a drunken pig and he cheated on her. He was also jealous of her. It all came to a head when she sent Richard Gere to his secret apartment to smash his head in with a snow globe.
He's not an a abuser. He got drunk, they fought four months into the marriage. Charges were dropped. Shit happens. They were together another eight years without incident.
"They were together another eight years without incident."
Without a REPORTED incident.
[quote] Which married Hollywood couple – they’re both Oscar-nominated – fought like cats and dogs recently while visiting longtime actor friends at their quiet retreat outside New York City? The 40-something couple’s constant arguing and bickering culminated with her storming out of the bed-and-breakfast and flying back to L.A. – alone!
It’s Josh Brolin and Diane Lane. The couple was visiting Richard Gere and Carey Lowell in upstate New York when the incident occurred. The fighting has been going on for a long time, and the couple just announced their intent to divorce.

I agree wholeheartedly.

We'd love to call Jennifer, but ABC says we must stick to the three-hour broadcast schedule.
I went to high school with her, and she was my cousin's girlfriend. She was pretty as a teen but not even top five in our school.
I met her many times, and there was never any hint of abuse when she was with my cousin, so I doubt she's the kind who would put up with that.
The one time I spent any length of time with her was at a holiday dinner in 1982 and she was polite enough. Back then her career had stalled quite a bit after her big splash on the cover of TIME in 1979. "Classics" like SixPack were more the norm for her back then.
that she is divorcing doesn't suprise me any more than her marrying the guy did. She seems to get pretty much what she wants, presuming I'm not what she wanted, as I never hit on her.
She's definitely aged better than anyone I know from school.
So she had an argument and left a hotel? Not a big deal.
Not everyone is cookie-cutter cheery all the itme, you know.
Give the girl a break please.
Barbra Streisand used to have a major crush on, and eat lucn every day with, Robert J. "Bobby" Fischer, 1972 World Chess Chmpion. They were classmates at Erasmus High in Brooklyn before Fischer dropped out at fifteen She said she found Bobby fascinating.
R76 JHud is already performing on the show.
Diane Lane is NOT lesbian.
Either that or my cousin (her ex-boyfriend of three years) did one hell of a job fooling the family.
She left the bed & breakfast that Richard Gere owns in upstate New York, R78. They were visiting Gere at the time. This is just one of many blind items about their fights. Brolin is a nasty drunk. I'm amazed that she stayed with him so long.
When she was dating Jon Bon Jovi they had terrible fights, too. Rumor has it that he hit her, too. She seems like a nice person but she probably has some sort of issues if she gets into abusive relationships. I'm glad she dumped Brolin.
"Hit me once, shame on you...
Hit me two hundred and seventeen times... well, you know."
- Diane, racing to the plastic surgeon (in her own words: "Never say never.")
It's about time. Now we need to decide who she should date...?
I vote for....
What's the deal with Minnie Driver? Is she difficult or does she just get dumped a lot?
Nope R84, she's 20 years too old for Clooney (or 20 years too old for Cindy Crawford if you believe those rumors).
[quote]Either that or my cousin (her ex-boyfriend of three years) did one hell of a job fooling the family.
What's your cousin like? Does he fit the theory that she's attracted to bad boy types?
I'm surprised they stayed together this long.
R81, if she was a lesbian you wouldn't know about it.
You actually think that you know a persons sexuality because you met them 30 years ago? FWIW, I don't think she is gay but a lot of things change in 30 years and it's not like she would be announcing her personal life to anybody.
