It looks like it may be truly over for Robin Thicke and his estranged wife Paula Patton. Sources from inside the singer’s camp tell TMZ that the marriage is done.
The tip comes on the heels of the news that Thicke is selling the house the two share – or rather don’t. Since the two separated in February, the singer has been focused on recording his new album, Paula, and going on the road in a very sap-heavy promotional tour. (The album tanked upon release, becoming one of the worst flops of all time.) Meanwhile, Patton has been on set filming the upcoming film adaptation of the Warcraft video game series.
According to Variety, the couple’s three-bedroom estate is being listed for .985 million. The value is over double the amount the singer’s father Alan Thicke (Growing Pains) paid in 1990.
The couple first separated earlier this year following allegations that Thicke cheated on his wife. High school sweethearts, the couple first met when they were both 14 years old.
While the two may be finished, we still have the memories of their most adorable moments. It’s truly a shame the two couldn’t work it out.
Neither one has officially filed for divorce.

It’s here! Making its debut on the Today show Thursday morning, the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer titillated fans after Beyonce teased the upcoming release last weekend. Starring Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele, the film adaptation promises to deliver on all the sex, love and seduction that made E L James’ books an international best-seller.
Leading up to the trailer, the question on everyone’s mind was, “Is it going to deliver on the kink that made the books a hit?” The opening shots look tame but by the end, it’s clear this film is going to teeter on the edge of NC-17.
While sex is certainly a key factor in the film, so is Dornan. As the title character, the model-turned-actor has the unforgiving challenge of seducing not only Johnson but audiences around the world. Does he live up to the book’s potential?
We’re going to say yes.
As for Beyonce, we still don’t entirely understand her involvement with the film but her coos from “Crazy in Love” could be heard at the end of the trailer much like the teaser she posted to Instagram. What’s interesting is that studio went with an alternative version of the hit single, suggesting this might be a very Bey-influenced soundtrack.
Fifty Shades of Grey also stars Luke Grimes as Elliot, Christian’s brother; Victor Rasuk as José, Anastasia’s close friend; Eloise Mumford as Kate, Anastasia’s best friend and roommate; Marcia Gay Harden as Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey, Christian’s mother; Rita Ora as Mia, Christian’s sister; Max Martini as Taylor, Christian’s bodyguard; Callum Keith Rennie as Ray, Anastasia’s stepfather; Jennifer Ehle as Carla, Anastasia’s mother; and Dylan Neal as Bob, Carla’s husband. The film hits theaters on Valentine’s Day of next year.
There’s no doubt that drugs are bad, kids. In plenty of film scenes, we’ve seen how using controlled substances can lead to some seriously dangerous circumstances. However, there are flicks like Scarlett Johansson‘s Lucy that fuel suppressed desires to get a little blazed.
In ScarJo’s upcoming film, her character uses a wonder drug giving her access to her brain’s full potential. Lucy also features some amazing effects that we imagine will look so much better while in an altered state.
In that vein, we gathered some of the trippiest films from the 2000s and 2010s that feature mind-bending visuals and storylines that take us outside of the box.

Much to everyone’s surprise, Glee star Naya Rivera got married just three months after breaking up with Big Sean. The actress wed actor Ryan Dorsey on July 19 in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in front of a small group of family. People exclusively reports that the two have been longtime friends, and began a serious relationship after Rivera’s brief engagement to the rapper ended in April. Now that we got all of those details out of the way, we need to take a moment to digest this news. Who is Ryan Dorsey, and how did Big Sean react to all of this?
Originally from Charleston, W.Va, Dorsey attended the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts and then moved to Los Angeles, where he met Rivera four years ago. He’s appeared on TV series like Mob City, Parks and Recreation, and Southland, and will next be seen in the 2015 film Blood Father. “We feel truly blessed to be joined as husband and wife,” the couple said in an official statement. The bride wore a Monique Lhuillier gown and the groom wore a Dolce & Gabbana suit. After the intimate wedding, Naya went on Instagram to tease the rest of the world with photos of the couple’s honeymoon.
But what does Big Sean have to say? Twitter has an idea:

The year was 1999 and by the summer, teen films were all the rage. The year kicked off with two unexpected box office success, Varsity Blues and She’s All That, before studios started pumping out hit after hit. In the same year, Drop Dead Gorgeous, a dark comedy about teenage girls competing in a local Minnesota beauty pageant, bombed at the box office. Unable to capture the same excitement as American Pie or 10 Things I Hate About You, the film quickly disappeared from theaters after earning a dismal .5 million at the box office.
It was only later, when released on DVD and VHS, did the movie become a cult classic. Similarly to Jawbreaker, which also came out in 1999, Drop Dead Gorgeous proved to be a pivotal film — introducing audiences to Amy Adams, making use of the mockumentary style — even if it was overlooked at the time.
On the 15th anniversary of the theatrical release, we talk to cast members, including Allison Janney, Denise Richards, and Mindy Sterling, who all shared tidbits from the set.
The film is a parody of the real life beauty pageant experience.
Taking place in Mount Rose, Minnesota, the film parodies the real life experiences of screenwriter Lona Williams, who grew up Rosemount. Williams was a beauty pageant survivor, winning runner up (and a ,000 scholarship) at America’s Junior Miss in 1985. Like the character Amber Atkins, Williams was only in it for the money.
“It wasn’t a dream. It was a way out,” Williams told BuzzFeed. “I used my scholarship to go to the University of Minnesota, and that was great.”
Goldie Hawn and Sigourney Weaver were wanted for the main adult roles.
Director Michael Patrick Jann and producers originally wanted Hawn as Kirsten Dunst’s mother, a role that later went to Ellen Barkin. As for Kirstie Alley’s character, the murderous Gladys Leeman, the studio wanted Weaver.
Melissa Joan Hart reportedly auditioned for Amber Atkins.
The role ultimately went to Kirsten Dunst, who followed up the role with Bring It On a year later.
Extras walked out on Denise Richards’ performance of “Can’t Take My Eyes of You.”
Richards said that a number of extras had not read the script prior to filming. Her tone-deaf rendition of the Frankie Valli hit while dancing with a Jesus doll on a crucifix did not sit well with unsuspecting audience members. “Halfway through my performance they were offended and actually walked off the set and left,” Richards told VH1. But it turned out the worst Richards was at singing, the better. “That was the fun of the movie.”
Being on set was like being at camp.
“It was like being at camp,” Richards said. “It was a really fun environment.”
The fun environment carried over to most of the cast in the film. Mindy Sterling, who played Iris Clark, echoed that sentiment. “I remember hanging out with all the girls on the set,” Sterling told VH1. She also recalled really connecting with the male cast, including Mike McShane.
Everyone had a sense that Amy Adams was a star.
Making her big screen debut, Adams was hardly remembered in the film until fans revisited the cult classic years later. However, her co-stars knew she was a star-in-the-making. “I remember Amy coming in, and immediately I was like, ‘Well, that’s it, she’s got that part,’” Jann told BuzzFeed.
Janney also remembered there was something special about her but didn’t put it together until many years later when they filmed The West Wing. “We were filming in Pittsburgh and we went out to dinner together and she was like, ‘Do you remember I was in [Drop Dead Gorgeous]?’” Janney recalled with a laugh to VH1.
The movie proved to be a breeding ground of Hollywood stars.
In addition to Adams, the film cast a number of up-and-comers, including Allison Janney (The West Wing), Thomas Lennon (Reno 911!), Brittany Murphy (8 Mile), and Will Sasso (MADtv).
Critics ripped apart the movie.
Cult films tend to come out of a dismal box office or just missing the moment. But not helping Drop Dead Gorgeous were the harsh reviews from critics, including Roger Ebert, The New York Times, and Entertainment Weekly, which gave it a “D”.
“Sometimes I wonder how anyone could have thought a screenplay was funny enough to film,” Ebert wrote. “The script for Drop Dead Gorgeous, on the other hand, must have been a funny read. It’s the movie that somehow never achieves takeoff speed.”
Despite the negative feedback from media, fans on Rotten Tomatoes gave the movie a 75 percent freshness rating.
The movie came out at the wrong time.
As to why it flopped at the box office? It didn’t hit at the right time, at least, that’s according to Sterling. If it came out a few years later, maybe it would have been saved through social media much like The Notebook was when it first stalled in theaters.
The movie is not available on Netflix or iTunes.
Prepare to drop some money on the DVD copy of the film, which can be found at Amazon or big box retailer (if you’re lucky). The film has not been transferred to streaming devices despite other late-’90s cult classic, such as Jawbreaker and Dazed and Confused, finding their way onto digital providers.

Since LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are just beginning the exciting journey of reality television, we thought we’d give them (and other couples out there) a few pointers on how to make your relationship last once America is in your living room.
Over the years, we’ve seen couple after couple grow dysfunctional and fall apart once they let the cameras into their life. Whether they’re singers, actors, or professional athletes, stars in the spotlight are unfortunately prone to the lying, cheating and divorce that comes with the territory of fame. However, certain TV couples have managed to survive, emerging out of the reality TV fog happier than ever. From The Bachelorette‘s Trista and Ryan Sutter to the titular stars of Giuliana and Bill, these lovebirds are still going strong, providing us with 10 rules any reality TV couple can use to make their relationship work. We suggest they take note.
1. Keep hold of your traditional values.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes tells it how it is, and we like that. She has a firecracker personality, but still holds traditional values near and dear to her heart, no matter how she chooses to express them. “Your marriage is supposed to just compliment and enhance who you are,” NeNe said last year. “Like, if you want to jump over the damn moon, your partner should support you jumpin’ over the damn moon.” Despite divorcing her husband of 15 years in 2011, NeNe remarried Gregg Leakes in 2013.
