“Diane Lane and Josh Brolin have decided to end their marriage,” reads a statement from reps for the couple. The magazine also quotes an inside source as saying the decision to split was mutual. “It is very amicable. It’s not ugly, it’s just over.”
It’s probably been “just over” for awhile. Falling under the category of “I’m just tellin’ ya what I heard”, Josh is ALLEGEDLY a mean drunk. He was arrested only four months after marrying Diane for domestic violence, but she chose not to press charges.
Josh Brolin returned as host for SNL with Australian newcomer Gotye as musical guest. Things got off to a slow start with Brolin’s monologue and the “The Californians” skit that went on a bit too long, much like the cold open featuring Mitt Romney saying goodbye to his former running mates. There’s a rumor that Mittens was asked to host by Lorne Michaels, let’s hope they get him to play a robot. It won’t be that hard.
The first good skit of the night was the Digital Short featuring Steven Spielberg helping Andy Samberg and Bill Hader with the latest edition of “Laser Cats.”
Then there was the “Piers Morgan Tonight” skit where Kimye, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, showed up to talk about the Trayvon Martin case. I think Fred‘s Ice-T impression could have been a little better though. The last skits of the show aren’t usually as good as Prom one at the end of the show, but I think it was helped but Jay Paroah‘s laughing. Good to see him getting more screen time.
So if you haven’t heard of Gotye, I’m sure you’ll be hearing more from him very soon. His performances of “Somebody That I Used To Know” and “Eyes Wide Open” will hopefully expose him to a bigger audience. I’m sure he hopes he won’t attract nuts who will be tempted to paint themselves up the way Andy and Taran did…FANTASTIC performances.
Oh, and next week we get to re-live the awkward, slow-spinning and hair twirling. Set your dvr!
