Cougar/Cub Couple Calling it Quits?
Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, the Hollywood couple who made the older woman / younger man relationship famous, are allegedly calling it quits after a suspected Kutcher rendezvous with a 23-year old woman in San Diego. The news is culled, largely, from the couple’s Twitter accounts, which have been largely silent after some telling Tweets.
Just how telling are 140 characters?
Amid new tabloid reports of infidelity by Ashton Kutcher, and trouble in his marriage to Demi Moore, the two – who are currently on different coasts – have curbed their prolific Tweeting in some possibly telling ways.
On Sept. 23, Moore shared a quote from Greek philosopher Epictetus, writing, “When we are offended at any man’s fault, turn to yourself & study your own failings. Then you will forget your anger.”
The pair also spent their sixth wedding anniversary – Sept. 24 – apart.
Kutcher arrived in San Diego on Sept. 23 for a weekend of partying with his former That ’70s Show costar Danny Masterson. Among their stops: Fluxx nightclub, where they had a VIP table. The actor also refrained from Tweeting anything on his wedding anniversary.
Moore, 48, has been in New York City to promote the short film she directed as part of Lifetime’s TV anthology, Five. The actress attended the premiere along with Jennifer Aniston, who also directed a short, on Monday night.
Kutcher, 33, who recently returned to TV in Two and a Half Men was in Los Angeles, where he presented an award to Ryan Seacrest Tuesday night during L.A.’s Promise Gala 2011.
The actors’ reps have not commented yet.
The couple, who began dating in 2003 and married in 2005, dealt with rumors of infidelity and marital trouble a year ago. At the time, they took a trip to Israel for what the actor described as a spiritual journey.
What do you think—is the couple splitting?
Chloe ext. 9421 offers some practical advice on break-ups:
“Healing a broken heart takes time and is a gradual process. The first thing someone can do is begin to change their thought process. Each time you find yourself lost in your own head, entertaining a little fantasy (whether it’s you giving them a piece of your mind or visions of you re-uniting) hit the ‘STOP’button. Tell yourself ‘STOP.’ You may only be able to do it for a few seconds until you’re right back ‘in your head’ again but just raising your consciousness in this way can eventually turn that ‘pause’ from seconds to minutes and then minutes to hours and hours to days.”
Chloe ext. 9421 also shares:
“Try not to obsess and talk too much about what happened [after a broken heart].”
That probably goes for Facebook and Twitter, too.
