As we all know, the holidays can be the breaking point for relationships in trouble and it appears that this past holiday season is no exception. Some celebrity couples didn't make it through this past holiday season.
People is reporting two casualities, the first of which is the breaking of the engagement and end of the relationship between Jennifer Love Hewitt and her fiancé, actor Ross McCall. The couple dated for two years before they got engaged in November 2007. A source close to the couple says, “They broke up over the holidays and have ended their engagement. They're both really sad about this. Even their friends are surprised; they seemed really happy. Everyone just wants the best for both of them.” You might remember that Jennifer Love Hewitt weathered a media firestorm about her alleged weight gain and loss after photos were snapped of her in a bathing suit while on vacation, which caused the Ghost Whisperer star to launch a campaign against weight discrimination.
The other couple calling it quits is actress Patricia Arquette and actor Thomas Jane. Arquette, who met Jane through mutual friends in 2001 and married him in 2006, has filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences and seeks sole custody of the couple’s daughter Harlow, 5, with visitation rights for Jane.
It’s really unfortunate when these things happen. As stated before, the holidays can be the breaking point for many a relationship in trouble. If something like this has happened to you during the holidays, please seek support from family and friends and do your best to take care of yourself at this time. You don't have to decide right this minute if you will keep the ring or even if you will keep the furniture. It might sound trite but right now you are your own top priority at this point; if you are not in condition to take care of yourself, anyone else who might be depending on you (your children, your boss, even your dog) will suffer. You are no good to anyone unless you are decent condition. Work out, get some sleep, get a manicure (a makeover is ill-advised at this juncture.) We wish anyone going through a rough time all the best right now.
