Today's Evil Beet Gossip


“It’s so sad. I guess it’s always changing. What else can I say? I just wake up each day in a slightly different place – grief is like a moving river … It’s a strange thing to say, because I’m at heart an optimistic person, but I would say in some ways it just gets worse. It’s just that the more time that passes, the more you miss someone. In some ways it gets worse. That’s what I would say.”

  • What is Michelle Williams squawking about? By the time Heath Ledger passed on their personal relationship was over. Heath had moved on with some model.
    Could it be that she was holding out for reconciliation?
    I’m happy the Matilda has a sober parent in her life. But since his untimely death, everyone is trying to make Heath out to be a saint. He was banging models and getting high at the end of his life, not so much thinking of reconciling with Michele and being an attentive father to his look-a-like daughter.

  • ew, Tia. poor taste. I thought she had broken it off because of his drug problems? And he always seemed very concerned about his daughter. Regardless, it doesn’t matter. You don’t think she has a right to be sad that he is dead? That is her child’s FATHER. That’s not a large enough personal relationship for you?

  • exactly, being sad over the death of your child’s father does not equal reconciliation. And it’s certainly not squawking to answer a question.

  • @politetia what are YOU squawking about???

    I think some how deep in heart she still was in love with him (like me) I think its really hard to see the person that you love the most killing them self slowly…

  • Tia- you don’t have a child with someone and then end your personal relationship simply because you separate.

    What a ridiculous thing for you to say!

  • Heath Ledger had to be doing some serious drugs, or, was just plain crazy to ever give up Michelle williams. She is an absolute doll, although, this photo doesn’t do her justice. She could make any guy’s knees go all wobbly just by smilling at him.

  • Don’t be so hard on tia, i can see her point, I feel badly for the daughter, but Michelle is pictured with a new Beau, and Heath was most certainly not in a good place to be a lover, OR a father, and half of Hollywood is walking around like , oh no we just lost one of our best, why were they not there pulling him out of the trenches, instead, people will never know. He is gone, and we are all standing around like hmmmm. pity party. Wrong, there are soooo many non professional people dying eery day from this disease and no one is giving them any air time, and Michelle is fine to grieve for the loss of her daughters father, but she didn’t look too sad snuggled up to Spike jonze recently. I’m just saying.

  • it’s hard to judge a person on the way they grieve and how they deal with the healing process unless we personally know them. i find it a little ignorant to blame michelle for “moving on” so fast…when we are all aware that in one point of our lives we all feel this pure sort of grief….

    I empathize with her, but I’m not going to jump to any conclusions on how she deals with the death of heath ledger. I just find it unfair somehow…

  • @polite tia and suthunbelle-

    There are PLENTY of people who are divorced or separated but still care deeply for their ex and always will no matter how much time elapses or who they are dating or WHAT horrible things they are doing to themselves. They have a child together–that’s a bond that will never go away.

    I speak of this from personal experience. My first husband and I were separated at the time of his death. Our son was just a baby. Despite all the drama and trauma he put me through I will ALWAYS have a place in my heart reserved for him. How can I not when I see him in our son every day? I can assure you that even though we were separated I grieved and suffered JUST as much had we still been together. Trust me.

    Cut Michelle some slack. It’s always easy to judge someone else when you’ve never walked in their shoes.

  • Agree with Moxie. I think that when two people have a child together, no matter what, there is always some sort of bond. The child is a link that binds you forever. Do not be flip about the fact that she is probably grieving deeply. He gave her something wonderful, and although they were not together at the time of his death, how could you not care for the person that gave you that beautiful child? Think things through.
