Is Celebrity Love always Crazy?

I'm so excited that, Crazy Thing Called Love, the final book in Molly's fabulous Crooked Creek series is out!

This is such a great book, (even if Billy's face doesn't have a scar on the cover), and one of the many questions it poses to the reader is whether or not fame and love can mix.

It seems like there are so few celebrity couples who make it, and it's not hard to understand the extra stress that comes down on these pairs.

For Billy and Maddy, Molly's couple in CRAZY THING CALLED LOVE, they met and feel in love as kids and when he got his shot at the big time (via hockey) they got married (way too young) and she supported him and let his career take center stage.

But that meant she never got to grow up and be her own person and have the spotlight shine on her, at all...

So, after they split, it's not really that difficult to imagine how or why she ended up in show business. Question is... When they meet again many years later, and both are in the public eye... can they figure out a way to fix their very private relationship?

Love it. And of course, as is true in all of Molly's books, there are about a gazillion other things going on too. So great.

Who are your favorite celebrity couples? Who are you rooting for?

I vote for Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck.

So cute. And (touch wood) they seem so solid.

YES! Ben and Jen - they get my vote too. It will be interesting to see what happens with all this success - He'll be more and more in demand and what will happen to her?

Meh! I'm cynical about any couple who get paparazzid often.
I'm for Daniel Day Lewis and Rebecca Miller, mostly because I don't even know if they have children, or what they look like.

Here is the problem... take uber hot uber rich men and uber hot and uber rich women with perfect bodies then take them away from all the trials and tribulations of "every day life and marriage" and put them on a set for 9 months with (see uber hot) actor of opposite sex.

If Brad and Jen can't make it... no one can.
