Bummer break-up of 2012: Amy Poehler, Will Arnett

Couldn’t you guys just fake it like the rest of us?

When we found out that Amy Poehler and Will Arnett were divorcing last week, we assumed there must be the scandal of all scandals hiding behind their split. Nevermind that their rep insisted it was “very amicable” –  why would two people as funny, successful and charming as them break up? As it turns out, they’re not that much different than those of us who fall asleep watching reruns of their shows, snuggling piles of almost-warm take-out.

“Will and Amy started to feel more like best friends than a married couple — and sadly they lost their spark,” a source tells RadarOnline. “The two still love each other very dearly, but the romance died and neither one of them was happy, so something had to be done.”

Talk about shot through the heart. Go ahead, Source, finish us off: “Everyone used to think that because Amy and Will are both comedians their relationship was all fun. However, the laughter stopped a long time ago and now they just want to move on with their lives.”

Now, we’re not necessarily saying that love is dead. Just that he’s emptied the mini-bar, went on an ugly Facebook bender and, well, things aren’t looking good.

Brad Pitt is still walking down the aisle

Despite the sad prognosis of love, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie still think they can make it work. The Marriage of the Century is a go, confirms Pitt, even if there isn’t a date set. “No plans yet, other than we are going to do it,” he tells E! News. “I plan very little as I get older.”

As for George Clooney, his role at the nuptials is also still undecided. “Well, you know, he doesn’t believe in institutions,” Pitt says. “So he can get people to their seats or something.”

Depp talks Tater Tots

Johnny Depp was at the Toronto Film Festival over the weekend supporting “West of Memphis,” a documentary about three men who spent more than 18 years in prison for “satanic” murders that they — along with pretty much everyone outside of their sleepy Southern town  — claim they did not commit. After his release from prison, one of the men, Damien Echols, moved in with Depp.

“To finally see Damien arrive at my house, on my doorstep, was moving and it was a celebration. It was beautiful,” said Depp at a press conference for the film. “We had Tater Tots and tacos. And things took their natural course and we ended up at the tattoo parlor.”

Now, 18 years is a steep price to pay for Johnny Tots. But don’t think we didn’t run the numbers.
