Well, looks like everybody's favorite couple Barbie and Ken are no longer an item after 43 years. Well, this is the 21st century, so I guess with 40% of first marriages ending in a divorce this should not be too surprising.

Also, it looks like Barbie is now dating a new guy named River! And she's getting him an MP3 player for Valentine's day. I hope it plays WMA's. Pretty weird to see Barbie blogging about a new guy though after all of these years with Ken. I hope he's taking it well.

But - regardless of whether or not it was a smart move to split the couple up - it did get them numerous headlines and as they say, there's no such thing as bad PR.

Which is a perfect segue into my announcement: J# and C# are dating! If anybody would like to do a story on this, please contact Waggener-Edstrom.

    I heard River knocked Barbie up and that’s why Ken split.

    Ken’s playing the field now. I saw him out with Tara Reid at the Crobar last night, and two nights ago he went to Viscaya with Paris Hilton. He and Paris really seemed to hit it off…she was cooing all over him, and they seemed to have a lot in common, right down to the skin tone.

    But, in the end, we all know he’s just toying with all these chicks, flashing plastic and buying Cristal everywhere he goes. He’s heartbroken because of that hussy. The old Ken will be back and he’ll settle down eventually. You know what they say, "the best revenge is living well."
