Russell Brand is kind of a hilarious amalgamation of a the Dalai Lama, Animal from The Muppet Babies and his character from Get Him To the Greek and I never really know what to make of him. Sure, he’s a decent person who takes assholes to task, but he’s also… Russell Brand. He does weird stuff all the time, and this one’s no exception: he’s off on a spiritual trip to India… with Demi Moore. Say whaaat?
From The Sun:
RUSSELL BRAND can’t have been watching much of Channel 4’s What Happens In Kavos during his recent London stay.
The comic reckons the best way for his new pal DEMI MOORE to get over ASHTON KUTCHER is by taking a trip abroad.
But instead of Demi doing flaming shots while dancing round her handbag in a Greek bar, he’s pushing for a spiritual healing retreat instead.
Russell has invited the actress on a group trip to a yoga retreat in India.
The Ananda Spa in the Himalayas promises to “cleanse the soul” and “heal internally”.
Several other members of the stars’ yoga class have been to the retreat – which offers meditation classes and healthy eating – and have recommended it as a way of clearing the mind and heart.
A source said: “Russell and Demi have become friends since she started his yoga class.
“He remembers how much yoga and meditation helped him after his split with KATY PERRY and feels it will help Demi too.
“Spiritual retreats can be hard work, but if you’re in the right frame of mind they’re really beneficial.”
Less likely that you’ll end up in A&E at 4am with broken glass in your foot too.
Well, okay. First of all, didn’t Ashton file for divorce about two years ago? It’s a bit late for the emotional intervention – or, you know, the whole losing your mind over Ashton Kutcher deal Demi’s still got going on. Still, I’d rather her sitting cross-legged and chanting on the floor of a stone temple in Rishikesh than huffing aerosol cans or whatever she was doing before.
This is what Demi wore to Thursday night’s Ferragamo Spring/Summer Runway Collection and VIP dinner in Los Angeles, and I can’t even believe I’m saying this, but she looks good. … Actually, no. She looks great, and it pains me to say so, because before I even saw this picture, my husband and I were kind of mocking her over breakfast this morning.
See, it was all toast and coffee and Carnation Instant Breakfast, and then we got to talking about how Demi’s this fifty-some year-old twit with the mentality of a fourteen-year-old girl (oh, you know, like … of her daughters, maybe?), and basically, it’s because she’s so rich and useless and she’s got all this time on her hands to just be a moron. But wait—that was my husband’s point of view, which I vehemently disagreed with. No, I think Demi’s the way Demi is because Demi’s got some serious issues, emotionally and possibly mentally, as well. We all know Demi’s history with substance abuse and how it dates back even to the eighties, so there’s stuff going on there that we can’t just blame on boredom, you know? Breakfast chat. Love it.
But hey! How about them legs, huh? Because those are some legs, guys. Legs for days.
Yeah, I don’t know. “Shocked” doesn’t really seem like the right word here, does it? Like, Demi probably would have been shocked if Ashton had filed for divorce about two years ago, but since they’ve been separated for over a year, and since Ashton has a brand new relationship that’s been going strong for a few months now (Ashton brought Mila Kunis home to Iowa for Christmas, by the way), it just doesn’t seem all that shocking.
But here’s the deal:
Even though they separated more than a year ago, Demi Moore was described as being “shocked” when her estranged hubby Ashton Kutcher filed for divorce last Friday, according to a new report.
Despite this, in just-released photos taken only two days after Kutcher filed papers in Los Angeles Superior Court to formally end his marriage, the Ghost star appeared in good spirits as she shopped with a companion in Los Angeles Sunday.
Moore – who’s endured a tough year, which included a stint in rehab and estrangement from her three daughters, Rumer, Tallulah and Scout — had been hoping to quietly settle with her cheating husband and then file divorce papers, according to Wednesday’s edition of The New York Post. “Demi had hoped to negotiate a financial settlement quietly,” a source told Page Six, “and then file paperwork afterwards to show the matter had been settled.”
But, the source added, the negotiations got too bogged down and Kutcher — TV’s highest- paid actor — became frustrated and pulled the trigger earlier. “Demi was asking for so much money, and [the negotiation] was dragging on so long, that Kutcher got fed up and filed papers, which means their divorce negotiations will become more public.”
I’m not an Ashton Kutcher fan by any means, but I do kind of feel sorry for him. All he wants to do is get divorced from the wife he cheated on without giving her too much money so he can get married to a brand new wife to cheat on, is that so much to ask for? Poor, poor Ashton.
