Can celebrity relationships survive?

February 22, 2010

Ryan Phillippe and Abbie Cornish are over which begs the question … can anyone make it in Hollywood?

Another day, another split in Hollywood. This time Ryan Phillippe and Abbie Cornish are over and it sounds bitter! Abbie’s rep confirmed to PEOPLE magazine, “Abbie ended the relationship with Ryan and she moved out of their home.”

The fact that their relatively short union has ended in tears doesn’t surprise us one bit. Can a celebrity relationship really survive in Hollywood?

La La Land veteran Dolly Parton doesn’t think so. The ‘9 To 5’ singer claims her 44-year union with spouse Carl Dean works so well because he stays out of the spotlight.

She said: “There are so many break-ups that the names pass me by but it
makes me think, if you want to escape the spotlight why marry another famous
person? It’s never going to work. You’re either in competition or your priorities are different. Your schedules will always clash so you’ll never see each other.

“My husband is a homebody and has nothing to do with the celebrity world.
We’ve been married 44 years and have worked so well together because we’re
not in the same business. If I’d married someone in the same business, it would never have lasted.”

So what do you think? Can celebrity relationships work?
