It’s very rare that I write about celebrity couples. Entertainment is a treacherous biz and far too often stars love lives end up on the chopping block before anything else. The public doesn’t like the superstar married to the square, or the douchebag married to the superstar, or the talentless golddigger with her claws in the quintessential nice guy. Fortunately Robin Thicke and Paula Patton were never any of these to me, at least not from appearances. Whether it was their Remy Martin commercial together, their appearances in Robin’s “Love After War” clip or their introduction to the world in the video for Robin’s “Lost Without You” the two of them always seemed legit to me, even if that might have just been their public face. No judgements one way or the other but I have to admit that if they can’t work things out I’ll kinda miss them ;(
