Oh noes, it looks like another longtime Hollywood couple may on the brink of a split. Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith -- yes, even though his hotness exceeds hers like the sun outshining a florescent light bulb, I think we all thought those two would last forever. But the 'bloids are swirling with rumors that the two are feuding over Antonio's years of fooling around.
This spring Antonio was seen in Cancun sipping tequila and flirting with at least one other younger woman. Harrumph! Melanie would show him -- she was photographed SANS wedding rings supposedly to send him a message (not because she was doing the dishes). Really? Fighting with your spouse via tabloid photos? And now "a source" tells Radar that Banderas is trying to woo Melanie back.
Well I don't know how much of a chance he stands given how they've both been moving targets for the past few months. Both have been traveling a lot lately, he mostly for work.
As for the infidelity rumors, I totally believe it. I mean, why not? He's Antonio Banderas. Hey, Antonio, I know you're old and all but I keep tequila in my kitchen cabinet. Just saying.
Kidding! But check out what Antonio said in an interview just this past December. He mentions that first rush of love doesn't last and then goes on to say that you have to just be honest with each other about being attracted to other people:
I think that you should be able to be honest with your wife: "I should be able to tell you that, yeah, sometimes I walk into a party and I feel there are women there that are very beautiful. And you shouldn't be upset. In the same way, you may see a guy who's very attractive." The question is, how much will you stretch that?
If Melanie can send hints through her ring finger, Antonio could have been sending hints through this interview. (He also talks about not wanting to hurt the children and enjoying a warm home life.) But maybe their relationship has just run its course -- and maybe that's okay. Melanie and Antonio have been together for 17 years. Melanie's kids are in their 20s and her daughter with Antonio is 15. It could just be time for these two to go their separate ways.
Do you think Melanie and Antonio are preparing for a divorce?
