Newspapers and gossip websites are full of news of celebrity relationships - Cameron Diaz has got married, Stephen Fry has got engaged, Elton John has turned his civil partnership into a full marriage....
Are you interested in news of celebrity marriages?
I'm not interested at all - if I admire someone, it's rarely for their private life, so although I might be interested in news about them that involves their professional life, I have no idea why anyone (other than those immediately involved of course) gives a ding dong about celebrity marriages. Yet news of them is plastered everywhere and Stephen Fry's engagement was the top read and the top shared story on the BBC website for some time the other day. I guess maybe people are desperate for some happy news when there is so much tragedy and destruction going on.
Well it depends on the celebrity. There are celebrities who earn my respect and admiration such as Brangelina and the Beckhams. They have wonderful families and make me smile whenever I hear news about them and their brood. I'm not sure if I like hearing about the Kardashian clan or today's pop stars getting married. A number of them don't seem to be that grounded. I don't even know if their marriages would last. But best of luck to them should they get hitched.
I never thought I would say this but I've been watching the house wives of new Jersey and Beverly Hills and im hooked on all the gossip that surrounds them. Every one else I don't really care as they change partners like pass the parcel
