Is Elle at an all-time low?

Has all the partying, running a business, having two kids and being a fab wife finally caught up with Elle Macpherson? The first signs things might have been going a bit pear shaped for The Body was her notable absence from one of UK fashion’s biggest events, London Fashion Week. Weeks later it was revealed that she had also cancelled her commitments at the most prestigious racing and social events, the Melbourne Cup, where she was due to be a star guest next month. Media all around the world are claiming the supermodel has checked herself into The Meadows rehabilitation clinic in Arizona and is being treated for postnatal depression.

Media pundits are speculating that Elle might be in the depths of a mid-life crisis – her 40th birthday next year. There are also rumours that she is at an all-time emotional low, suffering from “exhaustion and stress”. As Elle?s family closes ranks around her, friends are rallying to her defense ?She just wants to devote herself to being a good mother and partner to Arkie, as well as keeping her business interests strong? one friend told the press. Maybe the supermodel is finding out that she is only human and that trying to run a global business, raise two young children and be a good wife is a super-human effort by any ones standards! Get well soon Elle!

Berry dumps sex addict husband

Last week Oscar-winning actress, Halle Berry and husband Eric Benet announced their separation. The couple has apparently asked the press for some privacy during their separation. Berry announced that the marriage was in trouble after less than three years of marriage. ?Eric and I have had marital problems for some time now and have tried to work things out together,” she said in a statement. “However, at this point, I feel we need time apart to re-evaluate our union.” The couple met in 1999 and tied the knot in 2001, the marriage a second for Berry. But, as frequently reported in media around the world, Benet had a bit of a problem with the ?forsaking all others? part of the wedding vows, his alleged martial meandering seems to have finally taken its toll on the couple. Ms Berry has asked for her privacy to be respected “during this emotional time”.

Heath and Naomi Splitsville too!

Glamour Australian actors Heath Ledger and Naomi Watts have split. Ledger, 24, and Watts, 35, who met on the Australian movie set of Ned Kelly early last year are members of the clique of Australian actors making it big in Hollywood recently. Australian publicist Kate Ledger -Heath?s sister – confirmed the couple had ended their 16-month relationship. “Heath Ledger and Naomi Watts have made the decision to go their separate ways,” she said in a statement. “At this time in their lives both are busy pursuing careers which are taking them in different directions.? The statements also confirmed “They remain close friends.”

The air has been thick with rumours of the demise of this couple. Both Naomi and Heath have been spotted flying solo at key industry events around the globe – Naomi was most recently at Venice?s Film Festival on the red carpet promoting her next two flicks Le Divorce and 21 Grams. Maybe as Naomi?s star is firmly rising and Ledger?s seems have stalled put extra pressure on the couple. Friends are pointing the finger of blame at their pair?s hectic careers as well as the much-discussed eleven-year age gap. But, the classy couple seem to have broken the break-up mold – no dramas, no one third parties involved, no name calling, no restraining orders! Nice to see some people break up like mature adults and even manage to stay friends!
