While most thought Ryan Phillippe and Amanda Seyfried were destined to become serious, it turns out it was just a fling.  A friend told UsMagazine.com that the duo are just friends who are going on dates sometimes.  “At one point, there was a chance it would develop into something more serious, but it never did.  There’s no commitment,” Phillippe’s friend said.  Aside from this, Phillippe was caught hitting on Rihanna Saturday; she kindly turned him down, a witness reports.  The actor seemed undisturbed, leaving a house party later that night with a brunette.

Though the rumors about Jennifer Aniston adopting have finally died down, she’s having a hard time killing the biggest rumor out there.  “That I’m unhappy,” the actress tells People.  The actress insists, “I’m really happy.  Really!”  Between the rumors of Jennifer dating, adopting a child and getting a dog, she just can’t catch a break!  “I think people honestly just want to see me as a mom and married and barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen,” the actress says.  “I just want to say, ‘Everybody, relax! It’s going to happen.’ ”  But the star is in no rush.  For now, she’s busy promoting her new fragrance and her romantic comedy Just Go with It, which hits theaters today.

Celebrate Being Single with Celeste Friedman’s “Single 101: 101 Reasons to Celebrate Being Single”

Cupid's Pulse Article: Celebrate Being Single with Celeste Friedman’s “Single 101: 101 Reasons to Celebrate Being Single”

By Krissy Dolor

If you’re single, February might be the month you dread your family’s seemingly harmless (but nevertheless annoying) questioning of your lifestyle, asking if you have a special someone to spend “that holiday” with.  Or, it may be the month you take out your reserved pints of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream and watch sappy movies, wishing you had someone to cuddle with.  Either way, the “love” month shouldn’t be for couples only – singles need some love, too!  And who better than yourself to give you the love you need?  That’s the idea Celeste Friedman hoped to inspire with her book, Single 101: 101 Reasons to Celebrate Being Single, which explains why you should embrace your singleness, instead of looking at it like a a burden.  The Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter claims that she has achieved more success flying solo than when she was married or dating.  A fun, easy read, along with personal anecdotes anyone can relate to, Single 101 shows you that you can do it alone (and enjoy it – really!) if you want to.  In addition, Friedman has created a Single 101 music CD, including original songs that were inspired by her book.  She even has a one-woman show that celebrates the single life live on stage.

I had a chance to speak with Friedman via email about her book, as well as her partnership with the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign, which launches on Valentine’s Day.  Take a look at what she had to say:

Former Proposal co-stars Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock were seen ringing in the new year at Bess Bistro in Austin, Texas,according to UsMagazine.com.  Sources said the two looked “very playful” and were “smiling all the time and sometimes touching.”  Reynolds, who filed for divorce from Scarlett Johannson at the end of last year after a two-year marriage, and Bullock, who’s been divorced from Jesse James since last June, may be bonding over their breakups.  And although Bullock’s rep says there is nothing going on between Reynolds and Bullock, a friend of Reynolds said that chemistry is obvious between the two.

Kevin Spacey Doesn’t Need an American Beauty

Cupid's Pulse Article: Kevin Spacey Doesn’t Need an American Beauty

By Jenna Barbieri

This weekend at The Times Center in Manhattan, famous legends of film, theater, music and dance will join together to express their shared love for the arts at the 10th Anniversary of Arts & Leisure Weekend.  Kicking off the spectacular event tonight will be none other than two-time Academy Award-winning actor-director-producer, Kevin Spacey.

Though currently starring as disgraced former lobbyist Jack Abramoff in Casino Jack, Spacey has a much bigger responsibility serving as creative director of The Old Vic theater in London for the last seven years.  So what makes it so easy for Spacey to drop what he’s doing and hop an eight-hour flight to New York?  Perhaps it’s because he has no “ball and chain” to hold him back.

That’s right, the 51-year-old film legend’s ring finger bares no band.  In fact, it never has!  Yet Spacey continues to squeeze out every ounce of creative energy he has in him year after year.  Which begs me to question, can being married to the arts act as a healthy alternative to being married to a significant other?

Christie Brinkley Says Finding Love Isn’t a Priority

Even though Christie Brinkley has been divorced for two years, she’s in no hurry to find love again, according to People.  Why?  According to the model, she’s not as likely to meet people when she has her kids with her, which is a lot of the time.  Also, she says, “you never really know if someone is talking to you because you’re a celebrity.  It’s not my number one priority.”  Brinkley currently has three children, and says that being a mother “takes a lot of work.  My works makes me a better mom.  It gives me a little door to step out of my parenting and bring the excitement from that day back home.”  Her advice to bounce back from a painful divorce?  “You’ve got to find a way to keep laughing, even if it’s black humor, and my friends are very good at that,” she says.  “Some people think of happiness as a luxury, but it’s a necessity, and you need to make space for it in your life.”

Nicki Minaj is single and ready to date, according to The Hollywood Gossip.  Minaj is on the cover of the latest issue of King Magazine and opens up about what she’s looking for in a partner.  “Someone who is calm, who is strong enough to not have to win every argument, who allows a woman to be her crazy self and someone with a conscience not to feel less of a man.”  We suppose a calm man would be a good balance to the rapper’s wild style.

Why I’m Rooting For Jennifer Aniston in 2011

Cupid's Pulse Article: Why I’m Rooting For Jennifer Aniston in 2011

By The Single Filez

2010 is drawing to a close, and the new year will soon be upon us.  While this is usually exciting for me, I must admit that I’m not looking forward to watching the clock strike midnight this year.  Let me explain.  I turn 35 next year.  If I’m being honest, I’m scared shitless.  Luckily, I still feel and (thanks to great genes), look 25.  But no matter how young I look, the fact remains the same: next year I will be 35 and still single.  I’ll be single with not even a whiff of any potentials and without ever having experienced a long term relationship.  The older I get, the more worried I feel about my singledom.

Just like Jennifer Aniston (and many other single women out there), I’m notoriously unlucky in love.  Although Jen has the distinct advantage of having been married to Brad Pitt, whereas I have the advantage of still being in my mid-30’s (Aniston is in her 40’s).  Either way, I’m rooting for Jen because I’m sick and tired of the reaction in the media to her lack-of-a-man situation.  Everything they say about Aniston are the same things my friends, family and co-workers say about me: “but, she‘s gorgeous,” “but she‘s successful” and “why on earth can’t she keep a man?.”  It’s frustrating, it’s tiring and it’s just not fair.

Cupid's Pulse Article: Kristen McGuiness Talks About Going on 51 Dates in 50 Weeks

By Kari Arneson

Kristen McGuiness is your average 30-something woman – she has a great career working at a non-profit in Los Angeles and a great boyfriend who might just be The One.  But what’s different about McGuiness is how she got to where she is today.  As a recovering alcoholic and addict, she knew she had to think outside the box to sort out her priorities.  Single, newly sober and exploring a new city, McGuiness decided to try something crazy – but possibly brilliant – to find the new love of her life.  A sympathetic boss, a spiritual healer and a handful of blind dates helped her reach her goal of 51 dates in 50 weeks, and which ultimately the unique experience depicted in her book, 51/50: The Magical Adventures of a Single Life.  Equal parts hilarious and heart-wrenching, this book takes readers on McGuiness’ personal journey of self-discovery as she imparts valuable wisdom on life, love and the pursuit of happiness.  Cupid was lucky enough to talk to McGuiness about what those 51 dates were like, what it’s like to date sober, and how while looking for a man, she ended up finding herself:

Another prized Hollywood couple has decided to call it quits.  Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson have officially separated with the intent to divorce, according to People.  In a joint statement they say, “After long and careful consideration on both our parts, we’ve decided to end our marriage.  We entered our relationship with love, and it’s with love and kindness we leave it.  While privacy isn’t expected, it’s certainly appreciated.”  Although the pair were just seen out in NYC together last month, a source close to the situation says that it was Johansson who initiated the split.  The two wed in 2008 in a private ceremony in Reynold’s hometown of Vancouver.

Thoughts from a Single 30-Year-Old

Cupid's Pulse Article: Thoughts from a Single 30-Year-Old

By Jessica Downey of Chicago Now’s All the Single Ladies
Christina Aguilera recently divorced Jordan Bratman, and she is about to turn 30 in December.  I am at the opposite end of things – I just turned 30, and I have never been married (read that as I am totally and completely single).

When I was 20, I thought that I would be married or at least in a really serious relationship by the age of 30.  And it’s not that I think 30 is old by any means or that I had some sort of timeline but at that time, 30 just seemed so far away.  I mean, 10 years is a pretty long time; plenty of time to meet a guy, fall in love and get married.

Obviously as I went into this year, I figured out that marriage probably wasn’t going to happen.  Technically, it didn’t take me that long to figure it out, but I mean, you really never know what can happen.  But as my birthday got closer and closer, I kind of liked the idea of having a boyfriend or at least a date by my side on that day.

But despite her emotionally heavy songs, Swift is currently embracing the single life, saying, “Being single is wonderful and I love it.  I don’t ever have a morning where I wake up and say, ‘I really need to find a boyfriend today.'”

Kim Kardashian’s not too happy with sharing the spotlight, but it’s not her sisters she’s worried about – it’s her boyfriends.  The reality star is planning on staying single for awhile, and blames the constant camera attention for complicating her love life.  Kardashian told US Magazine that being single “is a lot easier” than trying to “figure out who likes me for really me (and) who wants to be on a show.”  The star’s ex, Dallas Cowboys’ player Miles Austin, reportedly loved the attention he got from Kardashian’s show.  As she prepares to begin shooting Kim and Kourtney Take New York, in which Kim and her sister will open a new boutique in the Big Apple, she looks forward to remaining single.  “This was like, for me, the perfect time to come to New York, because I’m single,” she says.  “I just felt like I kind of wanted a fresh start.”
