There are plenty of pairings that just make sense: peanut butter and jelly; flip-flops and the beach; bright red lipstick and that little black dress, to name a few. That’s not to say that unexpected matches don’t make their mark: bacon and chocolate (seriously); navy and black; cowboy boots in the summertime. This idea holds true for relationships, too. Sometimes, a couple just seems right, and other times, it takes a bit more convincing to understand why they’re a good fit.

If nothing else, the celebrity couples below prove that love can pop up in the most unexpected places and that opposites do attract.  As for bacon and chocolate, the jury is still out.

Hollywood’s It Couples outshine us regular folks in more ways than one: they’re happily in love; they live extravagant and fame-filled lives; and they have more money than they can possibly spend.  With a total of over $535 million divided among them, the celebrity couples on our list better have some shopping to do — or they’re going to be carrying around quite a few hefty wallets.  Here they are:

1. Beyoncé and Jay-Z:  This celebrity couple is not only the wealthiest couple on our list — raking in nearly double the next-richest duo — but perhaps the busiest as well.  Pocketing nearly $124 million, they earned their paychecks from music sales and singing gigs, as well as endorsement deals and clothing lines.

Many reality television viewers know Fernanda Rocha as a new addition to season six of The Real Housewives of Orange County (RHOOC) — and the first lesbian housewife to boot.  But Rocha’s story begins far away from the O.C. and long before her television debut.  Before moving to Los Angeles, Rocha received her degree in kinesiology and worked as a personal trainer and gym manager in Brazil.

“I grew up in Brazil in a small and simple family filled with love.  They always supported my crazy mind,” she says.  “And the freedom that they gave me to follow what I wanted to do was very important — it made me who I am.”

There are so many fun factors about Halloween.  First, there are the pumpkins: pumpkin carving, pumpkin patches, pumpkin pie — and an annual viewing of the TV show, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.  Next, you can’t forget candy, like Brach’s candy corn, which are only available seasonally in the autumn, making them a particularly delicious and coveted treat.  Then, there’s all that scary stuff: haunted houses, witches, goblins and ghouls — boo!  And finally, perhaps the best part is the costumes – for one day out of the year, you get to be anyone you want to be, celebrities included.

For anyone looking for a little romance on a holiday that’s typically filled with fright, you’re in luck!  Here’s a list of celebrity couples whose looks can be transformed into costumes. One of them may be the perfect fit for you and your partner.

Spending a lazy afternoon at a ball game can be the perfect casual date — and celebrity couples seem to think so, too.  Sometimes, celeb sightings at a sporting event can be as entertaining at the game itself.  There may even be as much action off the court as there is on it.

So the next time you attend a sporting event — whether it be hockey, basketball or baseball — keep your eyes open for the famous duos below:

1. Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher: In February, Underwood’s hockey-playing hubby was traded from the Ottawa Senators to the Nashville Predators.  Shortly after, Fisher moved into his wife’s Brentwood, CA, home (and into her closet), and for the first time during their marriage, the newlyweds settled in the same city.  Fans can rest assured that, once the hockey season starts up again in October, Underwood will be at as many home games as her hectic schedule allows.

The mind of a serial killer is something that is both intriguing, and at the same time, disturbing.  With motives that are primarily based on psychological gratification, these types of killers usually have a method to their madness, one that drives their actions and limits their inhibitions.  Belle Gunness, America’s most prolific female serial killer, is no exception.

Director, writer, producer, and Golden Globe nominee, Edward Bass, is producing a film that captures Belle’s story in the most deep, dark, and irresistible way.  …On the edge of your seat? Click here to read more.

Before her big day, a bride-to-be has so many details to consider: location, music selection, flower arrangements, seating chart, menu choices, and, of course, her personal style.  She needs to pick out a dress and jewelry, as well as decide how to do her make-up and hair.  When it comes to her hair, she not only needs to choose a style — keeping in mind her choice of veil — but also a color.

Amy Winehouse Unexpectedly and Sadly Joins the 27 Club

By Whitney Baker and Imani Brammer

Lady Gaga said it best: “Amy changed pop music forever, I remember knowing there was hope, and feeling not alone because of her.  She lived jazz, she lived the blues.”  With her soulful voice, peculiar demeanor and unruly habits, Amy Winehouse wowed audiences despite sometimes tripping on stage, throwing her shoes at people and struggling to stand up straight.  Her fans still loved her.  Now, with her music still echoing in their ears, they’re left with an all-too-obvious reminder that life is short.

At 3:54 pm on Saturday, July 23, 2011, 27-year-old jazz-influenced soul singer Winehouse was reported dead.  She was found in her London home, and a police source confirms that there were no sign of drugs near her body.  A toxicology report may take weeks to complete, and until then, the cause of her death is unclear.  Even so, Winehouse battled with a long-term — and well-known — drug addiction.  Suspicions are in the air as to whether her addiction to crack cocaine, heroin, alcohol, ecstasy, ketamine and cigarettes may have played a part in her untimely death.  Although she checked into rehabilitation centers at various times throughout her career, she believed that her illness was manic depression rather than alcohol or drug dependency.
