Any gossip?

It's been around for a while now, surely someone has to have some dirt.

Who loves each other? Who hates each other? Who's fucking who?

Why did Jennifer Morrison a) break off her engagement with Jesse Spencer, and b) leave the show soon afterward? Is it because she discovered Jesse's secret - that he's bi leaning toward gay? That's the word around Princeton-Plainsboro...

by Anonymousreply 109/01/2010

I don't think Morrison wanted to leave the show. She doesn't seem too happy about it in some interviews she's done.

Assuming she's even been officially written off the show.

Jennifer likes to hook up with her leading men...I had worked with her in Chicago, and she hooked up with the leading guy. Fast forward 1-2 years later in L.A.-I learned that she was engaged to be married to my friend (who is a bit religious and it transfered over to her), which she met on a shoot. They had a wedding date set, then she got casted for House. Later I heard that she and Jesse would have private bible readings together, and that was the end of her engagement to my friend.

I worked with Olivia when she was still blonde (circa The O.C.)- she was quite nice then, but now I've heard (through my friends who work on it), that she's quite the diva bitch because she was voted Maxim's Sexiest Girl and thinks she's hot shit.

Jennifer sounds like one of those actresses who hooks up with and gets engaged to co-stars very fast and then breaks it off a la Brittany Murphy. R8 by Olivia do you mean Olivia who plays 13? I saw her at the airport in Santa Fe a few months back when I was in town for a job interview and she seemed very nice then. Security guard asked her for a picture and she said "sure!" and happily obliged. Is Lisa Edelstein a lesbian? She's in her, what, mid 30's and still not married and I've never heard of her having a boyfriend.

They're not having an affair. Someone posted a picture of them looking cozy on a beach and spread the rumors they were together IRL. They were shooting a scene for House.

His wife moved to LA last year, once the kids went off to college.

But for the first five years, Hugh lived in LA alone and had a not-so-secret affair with one of the (women) producers. The wife found out and that's why she moved to LA ASAP.

In her 20s, Lisa Edelstein was one of the most famous club kids in NYC - hanging out with Michael Alig and the rest of the "Party Monster" crowd. She's one of the few from that group who didn't end up dead or in jail...

More pansexual than gay or straight.

I agree with R20. She's done a great job of keeping her life private. I know she said in some interview that when she started on "House", she told the producers that she would be starting a family during the show, so to expect Cuddy to get pregnant. I think she also dated a yoga master for a while. I think she pings though. %0D %0D I don't think Laurie had any affairs. He has struggled a lot with depression and his wife was very supportive. Also, I don't think he moved her or his family to LA. I'm pretty sure his eldest kids are in college, but he has a couple of younger ones and probably wouldn't have uprooted them, especially with the uncertain longevitiy of TV shows in the US.

I knew Lisa Edelsteing when she was a freshman at NYU, Rubin Residence Hall Room 1512. Not surprised to hear that she was a bitch to the MTV crew, she was a bitch to a lot of people in the dorm and enjoyed bullying the shyer element.

Anything on Jennifer Morrison?

by Anonymousreply 4710/04/2012

The rumour in the decent gossip days was that Laurie would fuck anything that moved, and it caused problems on the set b/c he would want to cast hot guest stars. He eventually had EP title, and more say over casting and also directors.

He and Katie Jacobs had an affair, made more awkward by her being married to another EP, Paul Attanasio.

Laurie is now separated from his wife (he doesn't wear the wedding ring or talk about her in public) and was dating a young blonde in his band a while back.

Spencer and Morrison's engagement allegedly broke up over the fact that Spencer fucked around with a man after their engagement. Morrison was said to be clueless about the bisexuality, especially if not his wandering eye. I forget his name, but he was another actor. First name Ben, I think.

by Anonymousreply 8302/05/2014

Got some juicy gossip from a friend in LA about this lot when I flew out there a couple of weeks ago.

Jennifer Morrison is nice enough, but it's a case of the lights are on but nobody's home. She's completely controlled by her management team, which is probably a good thing. Shame she was treated so badly when they kicked her off the show, but things got awkward on-set when she and Jesse split up, and he was more more popular with fans. Hugh Laurie was the one who vetoed the whole Cameron/House relationship after the first season. It wasn't that he disliked her at all, just that he wasn't comfortable with the age difference and he didn't feel there was any romantic chemistry there. (His attention was mostly elsewhere, but more on that later.)

I've heard the religious rumour regarding Jesse/Jennifer before. He's quite a devout Catholic, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Scientology crew get their claws into her eventually. She's gullible enough and hungry enough to stay famous.

Omar Epps and his wife are swingers. Other than that he's quite dull.

Robert Sean Leonard is a talented guy, but he's not exactly a joy to be around. He hated having more than a few scenes to work on, and didn't mind telling anyone who would listen that he was only there for the money. They tried to play up that he and Hugh were great friends for the press, but he wasn't really that close to anyone. I don't suppose it helped that he was a recovering alcoholic, and the crew as well as the lead were constantly drunk. (In fact there was a unfair dismissal lawsuit doing the rounds a couple of years ago from a member of the crew who refused to go to strip joints and get drunk like everybody else. Conveniently it disappeared.)

Lisa Edelstein is an interesting one. Obviously she calmed down in some areas from her Club Kid days (drugs and alcohol), but she was still fucking around like crazy while she was on the show. Usually much younger guys, who she could get rid of when she felt like it. Often she had several on the go at once. The woman's a Class A cougar. I also heard years ago that she nailed Josh Charles and Sorkin in her 'Sports Night' days. No idea if that's true, but my friend said her and Sorkin were all over each other when the 'House' and 'Studio 60' actors happened to be doing photo shoots at the same time. Like Leonard, she got the part through Bryan Singer.

The really interesting thing about her here is how close she and Hugh Laurie were from the get-go. She was the one they called in (even when she wasn't filming) when he was in such a depressive state, the crew couldn They more or less clicked from when they met in Vancouver to film the Pilot and leaned on each other professionally and emotionally right up until the shit hit the fan when they found out wacko fans had been hacking her email account and those of almost all the crew for years. (Before it came to light, stalkers were basically leaking her private details to the press. On at least one occasion she went to Laurie to help her kill the stuff that was being printed about her, which he did, including having people fired.) Anyway the loony fans sent the paps to the Malibu Beach where they were filming, and they ended up photographing them with their tongues down each other's throats. The only problem was that that wasn't part of the script, which had already been leaked earlier. As a result they had to backtrack like crazy, ditch the non-medical parts of the episode they'd filmed and find the easiest possible way to finish the House/Cuddy relationship without provoking further suspicions. As someone who'd been caught out having an affair by the press before, Laurie completely freaked out. The network didn't want their star caught up in a scandal either so they sent the orders to play down Cuddy's role, so they could ultimately lowball Edelstein when negotiations came about and force her out. As all this was going on, she'd thrown herself into a relationship with a separated artist that got serious quickly, and things on-set got all the more strained between her and Laurie.

I saw her getting some fresh juice from a juice joint on E9th St. in East Village some weeks ago. She was with some young dude.

The ironic thing is my friend doesn't think they actually slept together, which is hilarious considering the reps they both had for sleeping around. Sure there was a lot of heavy petting that you wouldn't expect from people who were just friends, but unless they were exceptionally discreet about it, to his knowledge they never allowed it to go further than that. He did say the sexual tension between them was often ridiculous though, but it was more than that. They just liked each other's company and had a lot in common. It's kind of a shame they didn't sort their shit out, and get together. No doubt it would have had to have been an open relationship, but I'm sure they'd have had tons of fun.

As for Laurie himself, the man is pretty much a genius like his character was, but he has a similar number of demons. He has some serious Mommy issues, and as a result he allowed himself to get locked in a sham marriage after the woman he was cheating with on his girlfriend fell pregnant. For the past 20+ years he's basically stayed out of a sense of obligation to her and the kids, and because she's stuck by him in spite of his affairs and then the hookers when he moved to LA. Personally, I don't think she's the dumped upon spouse she'd probably have people believe. There are perks to being married to someone with that much $$$$$. One day he might grow a pair of balls and officially leave her.

The guy drinks heavily too. We're not talking the odd binge on a weekend either, but more along the lines of high-functioning alcoholic. He's admitted in interviews that it's the only thing that can lift his mood, and I'd imagine for someone who finds being in the limelight so difficult, it must help him deal with his shyness. It's a tragedy he'll probably end up drinking himself to death.

There were a couple of blind items that pointed to him being into S&M a couple of years ago. No idea if that's true, but the House showrunners did arrange boxing lessons for him to help deal with his depression, so he had no issue with being slapped around. Also he went to Eton, and those English public schoolboys are so fucking kinky. I would not be surprised!

No idea if anybody is interested in this, but I saw someone dishing the dirt on this thread the other day, and thought I'd dive in after a random gossip with a friend earlier. Anyway she told me Lisa Edelstein is getting married to that artist guy she's with (Robert Russell). You'd think it'd be a cause for celebration, right? Wrong! My friend was actually really uneasy about it. She knows Lisa (primarily through a much closer friend), and she's fond of the woman, but she does have a tendency to bury her head in the sand as far as the men she gets serious with. At one point she was prepared to give up the big bucks on House and run off to Italy with one of her exes, because he didn't like the attention she got being famous. Thankfully it never happened.

Aside from that, something about this Russell dude stinks. There's an issue with when he and Lisa actually got together, and there's always been talk that he was still officially with his ex-wife at the time. Not only did he end up walking out on her, but his two really young kids as well. So ok. Shit happens. Marriages break up etc, but then my friend started to tell me how Lisa has done nothing but plug his art career for the past few years. She stopped going to TV events and went to exhibitions with him instead, all the while using her contacts to get his work some recognition, and neglecting her own career in the process. Embarrassingly she even started plugging his work on Twitter and asking other people to do the same, but it backfired because no-one was fucking interested and followers started to drop off. Since she's been with him there's been a change in her, personality wise, and even in terms of what she wears. She's much more guarded generally, and that's the main thing that bothered my friend: she's not quite the same bubbly Lisa she used to know. To top it off, there's been talk that Russell has a habit of playing the overly devoted fiancé when she's about, and then is a little too 'charming' with other women when she's not. Hardly surprising when he probably did the same with his ex.

It's all kind of sad. I don't know her personally, but in spite of her Club Kid rep, she's meant to be lovely and too loyal for her own good. From the stuff I've heard about her past, she really is ripe to be taken advantage of, and all the crap when she left House hit her hard. Hope she sees sense and/or has a good pre-nup in place.

His own BFF, Stephen Fry, admitted he was on coke for years. It's a shame their stans, especially Hugh's, put them on such high pedestals. They're both super talented men, but so flawed it's unreal. (See SF's love of twinks, and his obsession with boys in Ancient Greek culture.)

Used to be a big fan of the show, and I always knew there was something fishy about them canning the original S7 premiere and those pics taken on Redondo Beach. There was a ton of backtracking, mainly by Lisa Edelstein in interviews, saying they were filming when the showrunner, David Shore, had already said the pictures were of them 'relaxing in between scenes.' All the while Hugh was virtually nowhere to be seen. What a clusterfuck! It's predictably crap that the woman ultimately became the fall guy there. I read an article about the lawsuit someone else mentioned before, and the set sounded gross. Wouldn't be surprised about the hacking either. Edelstein has some weird stans as well. They'd clap if she so much as farted.

Bringing Cuddy's character to the fore wasn't the problem. In fact Edelstein being prepared to put more work in was solving the problem of Leonard wanting to work as little as possible. They'd have had the same issue with any realistic love interest, because the writers couldn't write romantic or platonic relationships without resorting to the same lazy 'People don't change' shit that conveniently let them off writing anything other than the same repetitive crap year after year. The one liners could be great, but the coherence of the storylines were all over the place the longer the show went on, mainly because the showrunners couldn't be bothered to put together a show Bible. People really have no idea how much 'House' was being carried by Laurie and the rest of the cast, but especially Leonard and Edelstein.

Still the writers weren't the only ones to blame. House and Cuddy were actually meant to get together long before they did, but Fox kept on stepping in to draw the whole thing out. The show itself lasted about 2 or 3 years longer than it should have done anyway, but $$$$ is King.

I believe David Shore was off trying to get a movie deal as the series went on.

For some reason, he gave Katie Jacobs a lot of say. According to gossip at the time, she is a flake.

Paul Attanasio, a well-regarded screenwriter, should have had a lot more power in executive producing. I don't know why he didn't. The situation with Jacobs (his wife) and Laurie probably didn't help.

There's been rumours about the Jacobs/Laurie thing for a long time. Not sure if it happened, but there was a 'situation' back in S3 where they had to halt production so he could rush back home to deal with a 'personal matter'. The gossip at the time was that certain papers were about to out him over his indiscretions and he'd gone home to meet with his lawyers to cut a begrudging deal with said papers, i.e. they'd get exclusives in return for not poking too deeply into his private life. It's really funny because he bitches about the Daily Mail all the time, but his team obviously use the paper to falsely report things such as his family moving over to LA when they quite clearly didn't, and to leak where he and his wife are at a certain time so they can be papped together. It doesn't matter that they almost always look miserable together, as long as what people see resembles a marriage, rather than the friendship/arrangement that it really is.

I pity Laurie to be honest. He's petrified of being outed in the same way he was after his affair with the director woman back in the 90's. It was particularly humiliating, because what he'd told her about his wife making him feel sexually inadequate, and then the letter Jo wrote to the affair begging her to stay away from him were both leaked to the press. He really should divorce his wife, but I suspect she still wouldn't give him up willingly and his team are scared it would ruin his brand.

Used to buy gifts for all the House crew every year, and he's pretty generous with his money as far as charities go too. His kids want for nothing as well.

Lisa is a lovely person too, if not an angel. She gives up loads of her spare time to work with her charities. It's just a shame that all common sense goes out of the window when it comes to relationships. She will marry this Russell dude, and she will learn the hard way about him. Great piece of advice I got from a friend once: "Never get into a relationship with a man who walked out on a marriage with small children. No matter how great he seems initially, his ego will always make him put himself first." Good luck Lisa! You're gonna need it!

She wouldn't be the first closeted lesbian to corner a guy and have kids, and she won't be the last. Besides he was a serious catch long before he did House. His family is really rich, and with his contacts and talent he was always going somewhere.

by Anonymousreply 20805/10/2014

Almost all kids who are sent to public boarding schools end up with Mommy issues. It's the same in Britain and the US. Sending your children away to live somewhere else when they're so small incubates so many attachment issues in the future. It doesn't help that so many of these places are brimming with physical and sexual abuse, especially in the past. I'm sure his best friend, Stephen Fry, wrote something about being abused in his autobiography, and about how normal it seemed at the time. Really disturbing stuff.

In relation to his Mom, I think Laurie has mentioned something about always sensing she didn't like him, but his siblings swear he was the one who got the preferential treatment as the youngest. I believe she died of quite a severe illness. He always lauds his Dad though as having been a nice guy, perhaps because he relates better to men.

Linking all this back to his marriage, I guess he doesn't leave his wife, at least partially, because he knows she won't leave him. For someone so insecure that's maybe reassuring. Unfortunately his relationship probably feeds his depression.

by Anonymousreply 20905/10/2014

Foul set and horribly overrated writers/directors, but if you think the rabid stalkers didn't have an effect on the downfall of the show, you're underestimating how much financial damage they caused by forcing scenes to be re-written and re-filmed. Each episode used to cost around $5 million to shoot. The budget was already bloated because of actor's salaries by that point in the series, and losses had to be recouped, therefore they targeted certain actors with paycuts when contracts were being renegotiated at the end of Season 7. Omar accepted more or less straight away, Jesse took several weeks and then agreed, but after the invasion of her privacy and where the writers had been forced to take Cuddy's storyline, it was the final straw for Lisa and she walked.

It's a shame the lunatics that did this couldn't be prosecuted because of a legal technicality. They could and should have been sued for the psychological distress caused, but it was easier to sweep things under the carpet, rather than draw further attention to what was already a huge, fucking mess.

by Anonymousreply 21005/10/2014

r211, that's on the showrunners and the production company (and eventually the network).

I'm not condoning it by any means, but other shows with similar problems handled crazed fans differently.

Shonda Rhimes and Grey's Anatomy is one example. I know she has her own issues, but they kept the lid on the fans for the most part, especially regarding writing leaks.

Lack of leadership killed that show. A strong showrunner (with executive backing) would have nipped a lot of this shit in the bud.

Hell, even a good director, like Tim Van Patten or Clark Johnson might have made a difference.

They also gave Laurie too much creative power. I'm not a David Chase fan, but he really managed Gandolfini well, and he had more personal problems than Laurie.

Sure, all shows usually have problems with leaks and difficult fans, but this was something else. You can protect your actors from stalkers on-set. You can even take measures against employees who leak scripts etc, (which did happen) but there's very little you can do to safeguard from lunatics who go so far as to pay professional hackers. These people make a living out accessing the details of corporate firms, so you have no idea it's even happening until it's way too late. There were serious problems on that set, but here the blame here lies firmly with the few insanely obsessive fans. The whole thing had a catastrophic domino effect.

Laurie was always a double-edged sword. There's absolutely no way the show would have gotten off the ground without him, but it meant they had to work around him as well. It wasn't necessarily that he had too much control, but the fact he's not a trained actor became an issue early on. He was already struggling with the limp and the American accent, so the showrunners decided to go with storylines that sailed rather close to reality, such as House using hookers and utilising the real chemistry between Hugh and Lisa.

I heard a few years back that he's invested a lot of his money in property, both in Britain and the US. That's half the reason he won't leave his wife. She's too heavily involved in running the business side of things, and there's way more to him than just the acting and now the music. He's quite a shrewd businessman.

I jerked off many times just having the fantasy of me and Jesse fucking each other.

Edelstein said not long after she left that it wasn't about the money. The way she was screwed over in negotiations was just the final straw. Shore is just appeasing fans with that because he simply can't tell the truth and blaming NBCU is the easiest thing to do now he no longer works for them. I don't suspect there's much love lost between him and Fox either, after their interference over the years and being dragged back by them kicking and screaming when they decided that Katie Jacobs wasn't competent enough to run the show and deal with the fallout of the hacking. In all honesty, I don't believe he was competent enough either. Fresh blood should have been brought in after he walked away to do the Rockford Files Reboot at the end of Season 5.

by Anonymousreply 23405/19/2014

did I miss something? so what really happened in the negotiations ? Because Lisa edelstein is a very bitter about House. Blame it on Fox- or NBCU?? So where does David shore and Katie Jacobs fit into the story?

by Anonymousreply 23605/21/2014

r235, my question is who made the initial decision on Jacobs in the first place?

That just shows you that no creative in charge had a fucking clue. People who worked on the show all described her as a 'flake', or variations of the word.

I suspect it might have been to appease Laurie, considering the gossip.

Attanasio was an EP on Homicide and a filmed screenwriter. He never figures into the leadership discussion at all, and that seems odd to me.

Unless there's something I'm missing on him (I'm just an interested outsider), he should have been more involved creatively.

The show might have been better with more Attanasio. It really wasn't a very good show.

r251, part of that was the character. On hiatus, Laurie looked dorkier (not in a good way) especially in London.

Since he's separated from his wife, I haven't heard gf rumours. He usually has a blonde around semi-steadily. He might need that now if he's really on the downward spiral.

It's interesting to me how the principals have disappeared. I haven't heard a thing about David Shore or Jacobs since the show wrapped.

She has a new series on Bravo. She's the lead. Were there any writers from House on the guess list? Some of the shows she's guested on have House writers producers working for them. She works as much as I'd expect. Most actors do guest spots, tv and indie movies for a couple years after they leave a show. Eventually they land a new series. She followed the normal pattern.

by Anonymousreply 26105/28/2014

It's no secret in the industry that Lisa was prepared to fuck for parts when she was first breaking into TV. She's a sweetheart to interview, incredibly generous with the media, but she's exceptionally driven too and very much in control of her own destiny. By her own admission she's always got parts through people she knows, and the way she got the part in House is suspect. According to Bryan Singer, he knew her as the hooker from The West Wing and showed a tape of her to his friends who agreed she was hot, and she got the role. Not an average audition process at all, but Singer's anything but conventional.

Speaking of The West Wing, a friend who used to work for the Enquirer told me they'd had a tip from a member of the public about a drunken Aaron Sorkin loudly and graphically telling a male companion in a hotel bar about the hookup he'd recently had with Lisa. This wasn't back when they worked together. This was about halfway through her run on House. I wasn't even slightly surprised to hear they're both into role play.

Well I'd presume he had make-up on his face and neck. He has a typically British complexion and burns.

I don't give a shit if Hugh and Lisa fucked or they didn't. That happens all the time with actors. I'm more upset that I won't see them act together again if they don't get over themselves. They upped each other's game exponentially, and I'd love to see what they would be capable of with a really decent writer behind them. I give it 5 years at the most before someone's desperate to make a House movie.

by Anonymousreply 27006/01/2014


They probably wouldn't work together because they are too associated with House and Cuddy. No one would see them as other characters. I'm not seeing the proof that they hate each other, I don't see many actors talking about their old jobs and costars. Actor like to disassociate from their old parts so they can move on. How much time does anyone spend talking about jobs they left years ago.

by Anonymousreply 27106/01/2014

Actors work together continuously in some cases. It's the nature of the business. As for them not discussing their roles after moving on to other things, I believe the cast of Friends still openly talk about the show that made their career and that ended 10 years ago. It'll be the same for all of the cast here. Morrison continuously does it to garner attention.

Nobody came out of this smelling of roses, including Lisa, and it's short-sighted of her to believe she can side-step questions about House and Hugh forever.

Ok, I'll bite seen as enough time has passed. My cousin worked on the show briefly in the last couple of years of its run and got the lowdown from other crew members who'd been there since the start. We got drunk together one night at a family gathering and she spilled the tea.

Jesse Spencer: Even better looking in person. (My cousin knew I had a crush on him). Genuinely nice guy. Bi. He has relationships with women and occasional hook ups with guys which he keeps quiet to keep his career on track, and because he's Catholic and wants the whole marriage and kids thing eventually. Kind of traditional in his outlook.

Olivia Wilde: Not as big a bitch as other people would have you believe, but completely divorced from reality because of her upbringing. Smart though, even if she's never going to be Meryl Streep. A bit fucked up by her marriage to Ruspoli. Allegedly he was a manipulative asshole.

Omar Epps: Sweet, but DULL, DULL, DULL!

Jennifer Morrison: One of those actresses who's the perfect combo of pretty, stupid and willing to do whatever she's told by her manager/publicists, including bearding. The relationship with Jesse was real though. She dumped him and when he struggled with continuing to work with her, they decided to effectively fire her. Didn't miss her character, but that's not cool.

Robert Sean Leonard: Funny guy, but the grumpiest motherfucker on the planet most of the time. Former alcoholic as well. Completely into his wife and family and way more interested in a theater career. House was cash for him and he was always half-joking with the showrunner about killing Wilson off.

Lisa Edelstein: Fun, but tries too hard to make herself center of attention. Like a lot of vocal vegans, her diet is a bad cover for an eating disorder and she's always sick because of it. There were often vague rumors about her Club Kid days really messing her up, and she's not as together as she wants people to believe. Crew regularly caught her and Hugh Laurie making out in each other's trailers, but it never seemed to go further than that. At least not on the lot.

Hugh Laurie: Every bit the genius House was and more. Moody and medicated too, yet always generous with the crew. Should have divorced his wife years ago, but he's old-fashioned and it's cheaper for him to go along with the 'arrangement' they have. He hates the media, so being married to a non-celeb attracts less attention. Meanwhile he gets 'professionals' to take care of the needs his wife can't or won't take care of. Really fascinating, complex guy though. Not your average actor at all.

Olivia net her first husband when she was 16 or 17, and they got married when she was 17 or 18- how can you say no to an Italian prince? I worked with her during the OC (but not on it), and we were told that she was going to be the next hot shit- she's a canny girl- knows who to befriend. Despite that, she still doesn't get leading film roles. I've worked with Jason before, and he's really appealing in person-has a lot of charisma and is very quick witted.

I just heard that Jennifer gave Ryan Murphy the idea for "Glee"- apparently she has a producer credit (I'm too lazy to look), and gets a crapload of money from it. She is not aging well though.

R352 - I think Jen is aging reasonably well. She looks 30 something.

R354 She's had some bad plastic surgery that makes her look like a rodent in the last few years. She started too early.

R353 Boarding school is where all of the posh Brit actors pick up their kinks.

R350 Years ago, when the show started to get really big, an English journo friend of mine compared Hugh's marriage to a hostage situation. He has tried to get out several times, but his wife has more than enough dirt to clean him out financially and she will use it if necessary. She has before.

Jennifer got really skinny during the run. She has since bulked some.

r357 that sounds odd. Not doubting your account, but if they divorced, his wife would get major money anyway because of how long they've been together. UK also doesn't have pre-nups as we know it in N America, do they?

Why not just take the money and have your own life. As it is, everyone knows it's a marriage in name only.

I would've thought Laurie would want to stay for his image, especially when he first came here.

R359 Why can't both reasons be valid? He has a lot to lose in both cases right now.

His wife began to heavily involve herself in managing his career soon after they got married. She 'managed' him, professionally and personally, for a long time, but moving to the US and spending more time away from her opened his eyes to many things. Eventually I can see him doing what Anthony Hopkins did: getting a divorce, remarrying someone younger and moving permanently to California. The older he gets, the less his image will matter. To him and to other people.

r360 I meant why doesn't the wife just accept reality since she wouldn't be out money, and let it go.

The kids are all grown now, too.

I thought Laurie would stay at first because he needed a US image. After that, I thought his wife would agree to a divorce.

(My first reply was poorly worded.)

How does divorce work in the UK? Does cheating factor into the size of the settlement ? In California we have no fault divorce and property is split 50/50, doesn't matter who the asshole was. I would think the Lauries have enough money to go around. Of course some men don't like to give any money up even if they'd still have more than they can spend.

A lot of House/Hugh Laurie fans are very enamored with the idea of his marriage. They are very protective of it and lash out online at anyone they think might be a threat. I think the fact that he's still married to the same frumpy wife makes him appear loyal and unshallow. If he publicly started seeing some young model it would be heart breaking to them.

Because of the length of time they've been together and her 'contribution' to his career, she'd be entitled to half of everything. This is why a lot of wealthy British guys work with their lawyers and accountants to hide their assets, but it's more likely he'd try to negotiate a settlement. Whatever would happen, she'd never have to worry about earning a living for the rest of her life. The guy has money coming out of his ass.

Crazy loyal fans would support him whatever he does and happily ignore that time he was caught with his pants round his ankles and publicly humiliated by the media. Besides if he ever did finally decide to get out, his team would spin the break up as amicable and not allow him to be seen with anybody else publicly for at least 6 months - a year so there's no suspicion of an 'overlap'. He's not stupid anyway. Nor is he likely to walk into another marriage with a 20 year old, dumb blonde when he could just continue screwing hookers. He's dated Lise Mayer and Emma Thompson in the past. He likes pretty AND smart for anything more than a fuck.

Whatever happens, I wish the guy well. He's one of the nicest people working in Hollywood right now, and nobody deserves to be that miserable, for that long, in a relationship that was flawed from the start.

I've followed this thread for a long time and every single occasion there's any discussion about this dude's marriage being a sham on DL, it's followed within days by an article in the Daily Mail with pap pics that he's obviously approved, and which happens to be a thinly disguised puff piece about how great his relationship is. It could be a freaky coincidence, but I'd bet a few dollars that he's schtupping anyone other than his wife.
