Jack Wagner & Heather Locklear's Split Restores Faith in Humanity

jack wagner and heather locklearThe two hottest blondes over 50 have called it quits. Heather Locklear and fiance Jack Wagner announced their split yesterday just three months after getting engaged. As a Melrose Place fan, it's sad to hear that Heather and Jack, who had such enviable chemistry on the show, aren't meant to be. I kind of feel like if these two can't make it, what chance do the rest of us have, but I have to tear myself off the ledge here and look at things from a positive perspective. Despite my utter despair, I bet Heather and Jack made the right decision.

Breaking up is hard to do, but getting a divorce is even harder.


After two marriages that ended in divorce (Tommy Lee and Richie Sambora), I'm sure Heather knows what it takes to make a relationship work. Even though she was engaged to Jack, her experience (and his) probably helped them realize that getting married wasn't going to solve any of the problems they were facing at the time. After you say 'I do,' the issues don't just disappear because you're officially a couple in the eyes of the state. In fact, they might even be exacerbated.

Amanda and Dr. Burns Heather and Jack, having spent a combined total of 102 years on this planet, are smart enough to have realized this before tying the knot. You know who didn't come to this conclusion? Kim Kardashian. It was clear she thought getting married to Kris Humphries was going to make her happy, make them happy, but we all know how that ended. Seventy-two days and a bunch of public shaming later, Kim's back to square one. A white dress and a party with all your family and friends are oh so fun, but it's not a cure-all. It doesn't fix anything that was previously broken. Heather and Jack's split shows that there are still some smart stars out there who know that a big, fat, E! funded wedding isn't going to turn a wrong into a right. Faith = restored.

Heather was spotted alone at the Breaking Dawn premiere and without the rock on her left hand. If I know my blonde, all-American bombshell like I think I do, Heather's gonna take some time to herself, then get right back on that horse. If she's looking for advice, I suggest she take advantage of her cougar status and go after the youngins like Zac Efron and RPatz. She should have some fun because it's not like she's rushing to walk down that aisle -- she knows better than that.

Do you think getting married solves relationship problems?
