Sara Gilbert and Allison Adler

This week, the former "Roseanne" star announced that she and her longtime partner, Allison Adler have gone their separate ways after a decade together. As Gilbert assures readers, "it's completely amicable." (Don't they all say that?)

"I feel like people can't fathom a couple divorcing nicely...we are even having our friends serve each other...mine was on vid...hahaha."

Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith (rumored)

Who knows what's going with these two? Hours following the news of their split, Will and Jada have each denied that they were getting divorced.

Will clarifies that "we are still together, and our marriage in in tact." Meanwhile, Jada's rep knows nothing about these rumors. "What? In Touch said that? I know nothing about this...Lord, I'm going back to bed."

The former "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star and her NFL pro husband have called it quits. Lisa took to Twitter to dispel rumors that money had anything to do with their breakup. "Sadly.
