To wonder why some celebs (not mentioning any names --Natasha Hamilton-- seem to swap partners more often than I swap handbags?

And I love my handbags.

Why is it though? Somebody like Natasha Hamilton appears to have a good life and her head screwed on. She's had a reasonably successful career, must have money of her own, is still young, pretty and in good shape. But apparently she has split with Richie Neville - who she decided to have a baby with after knowing him for nano-seconds.

Yes it's NOMB - but she kind of makes it my/our business by giving interviews every five seconds about the latest development - and in bored moments I can't help wondering how and why anybody can live in a real life soap opera 24 hours a day.

YANBU. I bet the editor of OK magazine called her up every month or so to do a photo spread with her latest pregnancy/fiance/husband. grin I don't even read gossip magazines and I've noticed that this is more or less a constant feature.

We.ll she didnt really know him a nano second and they were in a relationship that broke down it happens to real people too

I have no idea who this woman is.

Seriously not one clue.

Therefore it is entirely possible to go through life avoiding any knowledge of her personal life if you choose.

I don't read tabloids or gossip magazines, that's all you need to change.

I really believe that these celeb type gossip stories are harmful to us as a society. Just don't engage.

LaConnerie Tue 19-Apr-16 10:57:24

EatShit yes I realise that, but they don't plaster it all over Ok Magazine do they?

I would genuinely love to know what she/they get out of making their lives so public - other than money, obviously.

BTW - I was only reading OK because I was stranded in the hairdressers blush

LaConnerie Tue 19-Apr-16 10:59:05

MrsJayy ok, maybe not literally a nano-second. But they got together in 2014 and have now split up - and have an 18 month old child. Add 18 months to 9 months pregnancy and that doesn't leave much wiggle room...

I don't know who this woman is, but just to say that I have a dress in my wardrobe that is still going strong having lasted 3 times as long as my 7 year marriage. In my world, clothes and handbags always last longer than relationships! grin

Aw Fink grin

But a 7 year marriage in celeb land is a 30 year one in RL smile . So well done you.

They make money from it! That's enough tbh. Sure, I wouldn't d it, but it's their way of life and it pays well. I don't judge her for having a baby too soon, loads of people do that. I judge Cheryl whatever for having 3 surnames so far and being on her second divorce. I think that shows poor judgement and an inability to exist without being in relation to a man.

No she really doesn't.

I've managed to get through my life easily without knowing any of this until reading this thread.

If you choose to read trashy magazines, that's your business.

I don't know anyone in RL who has been through as many partners each time proclaiming them to be "the one" only then to have a baby very quickly and break up. You'd think she'd learn wouldn't you?!

For people claiming not to know who she is, Natasha Hamilton was a member of the girl band Atomic Kitten and her ex fiance Ritchie Neville was a member of the boyband 5ive.

I feel a bit sorry for them that it hasn't worked out TBH.

Zaphodsotherhead Tue 19-Apr-16 11:14:21

I don't know these people but I've come to think that celebrity relationships are measured in dog years. As LaConnerie says above, six months to celebs is ten years to people like us.

But then, I've had two dogs outlive my last relationship, so maybe I'm a celeb too?

VinceNoirLovesHowardMoon Tue 19-Apr-16 11:17:42

How many kids does she have by how many men?

Sparklingbrook Tue 19-Apr-16 11:18:52

She has 4 children, they all have a different father.

LaConnerie Tue 19-Apr-16 11:26:16

BTW I'm not putting all the blame on her - the men involved are just as nuts IMO....

MaryPoppinsPenguins Tue 19-Apr-16 11:26:55

I think it's true to say a lot of people do this, but she's one of the breeds of celebrity who uses her life to make a living, if I thought I could get 25k to sit with my DD on my lap and have my photo taken, I would do it too!

MrsJayy Tue 19-Apr-16 11:27:36

Ah the accidental reading of trash mags its a bugger grin

MrsJayy Tue 19-Apr-16 11:29:08

She isnt really got a job has she going to Ok is making her money

LaConnerie Tue 19-Apr-16 11:31:23

Ha MrsJayy it so is! If I could read and forget that would be one thing, but I spend the rest of the day feeling ranty about it...

MrsJayy Tue 19-Apr-16 11:31:26

Oh dearie me isnt really^ blush

raisedbyguineapigs Tue 19-Apr-16 11:33:54

Yes I think a lot of 'celebs' without a lot of talent to fall back on then find the selling of their lives an easy income stream. They move from one drama to another, making a lot of money from each one. I cant believe anyone sane would deliberately have a child with every random boyfriend just to get paid by a magazine, but the relationship dramas, the marriages, divorces, break ups etc etc may be the only way some of them can make a living. Maybe then, that becomes your reality and 'normal' boring life becomes very boring indeed!
