Will reporters ever stop asking George Clooney if he’s getting married?  Probably not, and according to People, Piers Morgan had a shot at asking last week when Clooney appeared on his CNN show, Piers Morgan Tonight.  “I hate to blow your whole news story, but I was married,” Clooney told Morgan.  Nick Clooney, George’s father, appeared on the show with his son and used his own 51-year marriage to George’s mom Nina as an example of why he should reconsider.  However, George, who was wed to actress Talia Balsam from 1989 to 1993, believes once is enough.  He added, “I’ve proven how good I was at it, and I just. … I’m allowed one.”

After divorce, should you give marriage another shot?

While promoting her new movie, Blue Valentine, Michelle Williams had what she calls a “devastating” experience with Nightline.  E! Online reported last week that Williams didn’t like how Nightline producers edited the interview to focus almost entirely on Heath Ledger’s death.  “They used those few quotes, and the way they edited the piece to sell the interview, it appeared as if I were breaking some kind of silence and sitting down with the express purpose to discuss something that is very private to me,” says Williams, who still finds talking about her former partner’s death a “struggle.”
