Drew Barrymore And Will Kopelman Are Putting Their Kids First

Drew Barrymore's New Man Makes Her Laugh

Sounds like this divorce is going to be amicable…at least when it comes to the kids.

Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman are divorcing after nearly four years of marriage, but they’re going the Gwyneth Paltrow Chris Martin route, and making sure they are a close-kint family unit for the sake of their kids. Ah, the CHILDREN! Cool. I hope I get to peep some awkward vacation pics soon. Anyhow, nobody expects any kind of custody battle between the two. A close friend says:

“They fundamentally agree on everything when it comes to their girls,” a family source tells People.

While the former couple have spent time in both L.A. and New York City, they’ve agreed to keep their home base in the Big Apple, where Olive is enrolled in preschool, for the foreseeable future.

“Our children are our universe, and we look forward to living the rest of our lives with them as the first priority,” Barrymore and Kopelman told People.

No custody drama? Fine. I’m WAITING for some nanny to come forward, though…maybe? How funny would it be if DREW cheated with the nanny? Not funny at all? Ah, ok.

Bethenny Frankel Is Trying To Keep Her Kid Out Of Divorce Proceedings

Bethenny Frankel Hangs At The Pool With Her Daughter

Divorces take forever, don’t they?

Since they split so long ago (December 2012, to be exact) I think we all kinda forgot that Bethenny Frankel has been in the middle of a pretty long divorce battle with ex-husband Jason Hoppy. And aside from maybe kinda dating Eric Stonestreet, it feels as though she’s taking it in stride. The one thing the 45-year-old RHONY star can’t abide by, however, is messing with her 5-year-old daughter Bryn. She’s doing her best to keep Bryn grounded, but hey, when you’re a resident of divorce city, there ain’t no guarantees…

In a new interview with People, Frankel opens up about how the divorce has affected her and her kid:

“I feel like I’m on the 18th hole of the golf round now. I feel like we’re here. I feel like justice is being served. It’s being handled the way it should be. It’s gone on way too long. I feel like I survived something. When it all shakes down, I’ll be a woman who has not kind of just felt backed into a corner. I stayed strong and I did what was best for myself, my daughter, for women.”

The entrepreneur added that normalcy is a number one priority when it comes to her little girl:

“I think kids need stability and to feel calm and proud of their home. She’s an amazing, amazing little girl. She’s so happy. She’s not really aware of what’s going on, which is great. I’m proud of that. It has been by far the most difficult thing I’ve ever been through.”

Phew, if having a reality star mom isn’t bad enough, remembering a traumatic divorce is probably not good, either. Bryn, hope you grow up happy and uh, normal, if that’s possible…

Drew Barrymore Probably Talked To Steven Spielberg About Her Divorce

Screen Shot 2016-04-04 at 7.55.23 PM

Yes, the big news is that Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman are getting divorced…but when you’re Drew, who you gonna call for marital counsel? Steven Friggin’ Spielberg, that’s who.

The actress talked to some reporter from Popsugar about her life very vaguely, and I guess also about wine (the interview was originally supposed to be strictly wine). Still, when this big of news hits ya, you gotta talk it out (even with randos, while sitting with wine). So Popsugar got some inside info about Drew’s breakup, over a glass of Rose. Here are the highlights:

On the strength of her daughter Olive:“That’s how my daughter is. She doesn’t want the worry. She needs to know it’s going to be OK. It’s the only way she will allow herself to be vulnerable. . . . She’s mad when something hurts her. She doesn’t go to a weak place. Every little girl can only be made to feel safe if they know the parent is solid.”

On her life’s mission:“The only thing I care about, my life’s mission and the only thing that matters as of now is that my daughters know what our lives were like, how we lived, and how much I love them. For them to know that they were not just loved, but, like, ridiculously, utterly, life-alteringly loved. That’s the only reason I’m here now!”

On maybe calling Steven Spielberg:“I had a really hard time a couple of months ago and kind of knew life was heading in a new direction. I called someone that I really trust, respect, and believe in, because he has always been the conductor of grace. I said, ‘What’s your advice?’ And he said, ‘You put one foot in front of the other.’ I hung up the phone and I thought, ‘That is why I call this person.’ It’s not only succinct, but it’s almost physically productive and life-choice productive. It’s just great advice. It’s a kind of way in which to live, and I want to be like him. I want to be like that. I want to put one foot in front of the other.”

See? Totally Spielberg, right? Totally a conductor of grace. If you think it’s somebody else, sound off in the comments below. Heck, if you agree, do the same…

Gwen Stefani’s Still Feeling That Gavin Rossdale Split HARD

Pregnant Gwen Stefani & Gavin Rossdale At A Baby Shower

…the simpler days, with Gwen Stefani rocking a surprisingly feminine (and early 2000’s) ensemble…

Gwen had another interview on ABC’s Good Morning America on Monday, detailing new information about the aftermath of their 2015 split. It’s not super controversial, just kinda sad. Gwen has always been super likeable and just seems like a woman who wants to be loved and raise a family. Here are the highlights:

On her divorce: “I felt like I was so … I was so kind of … I felt like … I can’t even find the words,” Stefani, 46, told Lara Spencer of their devastating breakup. “Oh, my God. I was embarrassed. Like, ‘I can’t go down. This is not who I am. I’m not going to fail.’ I had to make something good out of it, so I tried to write, because I know that that was my gift. And I was like, I’m gonna do this. I’m going to make this into music.”

On making her third studio album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like: “It was magic. There was magic in the room. I was put in the studio by my label. I didn’t care about anything,” she said. “I was just literally trying to get up in the morning. I just want to write a record, and I don’t care about anything else except for getting this out and healing and being honest and real and truthful. I don’t care what style it is. Or being on the radio or charts, anything. Like, why would that matter to me at this point? Nothing matters except trying not to die.”

On the future: “It’s still painful. I’m looking at the pieces and going, what is happening?” Stefani confessed. “There’s so many great things, but it’s still super hard to have your family break up. What do you do after that? Here we are, we’re doing it.”

The No Doubt frontwoman has been dating Shelton since last October, and things seem to be going well for them, both romantically and in terms of Gwen’s writing:

On writing Make Me Like You: “That song was one of my favorites to write. It just came out,” she dished. “I had been feeling that way. It’s just exactly what I felt that day … I miss you right now, here it is. Everybody in the room was kind of, like, whoa, this is happening right now. It was written fast — 10, 15 minutes the whole thing just done.”

It has been a crazy year for Gwen. And while her new relationship seems out of left field, I’m glad she’s happy and making music.
