Say it isn't so! The beautiful Idina Menzel and her equally lovely husband of 10 years Taye Diggs have called it quits after weathering so many storms and having a son together. There are very few Hollywood breakups that really hit me, but this is one of them.
The two met in the mid-1990s when they both starred in Rent and have been together ever since -- practically a lifetime when it comes to celeb marriages. But this one hits hard. Menzel has never been secretive about how hard marriage is, though. She said:
We work at it. I'm not going to glamorize it or glorify it -- we go through tough times like everybody else, but we love each other very much. We try not to be away from each other for more than two weeks at a time, and we try to find new ways to communicate.
Somehow, it all went wrong.
Now Menzel and Diggs join the ranks of other couples that broke our hearts. Here are a few (set to the tune of "The Way We Were")
- Rhea Perlman and Danny DeVito: This one was a SHOCK. Although it looks like they may have reconciled. Because, duh. These two belong together.
- Bruce Willis and Demi Moore: These two were big, big stars, but they seemed to have it all. Not so, I guess.
- Heidi Klum and Seal: We thought they had it all! WHAT happened? We may never know. But honestly, this one was a shocker. And so, so sad.
- Amy Poehler and Will Arnett: Heartbreaker. That's all. Can't say more. Too choked up.
As for Idina and Taye, I am sure they will move on with aplomb. These are two incredibly sexy, smart, and talented people. But still. I will always miss them together. Sigh.
