Nothing Says Couples Drama Like Thanksgiving

11/12/2006 2:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and along with the plentiful servings of turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie, celeb-watchers know that there's another dish best served right around this holiday -- couples drama.

Last year, of course, Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey announced that they were splitting up -- on Thanksgiving Day no less, causing glossy-magazine editors and showbiz news show producers no end of grief. Then, after spending a much-buzzed-about weekend at a spa in Arizona, Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston were pulled over on suspicion that Vaughn was driving under the influence (though no charges were filed). Meanwhile, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, still in the first blossom of romance, made a high-profile do-gooding trip to Pakistan to visit earthquake victims over the holiday, making their archrivals Vaughniston look positively sybaritic by comparison.

This year, the couples are getting started a little early. First, Reese and Ryan and now Britney and K-Fed have already made big headlines with their respective breakups, and Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes may well tie the knot in Italy right before Turkey Day. Add to that the Paul McCartney and Heather Mills nuclear war as well as whispers about Scarlett Johansson and Josh Hartnett on the rocks, and Thanksgiving 2006 could prove to be yet another couples-drama-laden holiday to remember.

To everyone out there who is a hater of Jessica Simpson, Until you walk in her shoes you should not judge her. I feel for her. It is very hard to split from someone that you love and have loved for a very long time. I was hoping that this divorce would never happen but it did. I can tell that she is trying her best to get on with her life but she may still hurt. so give her a break. It's not like anyone is dissing nick. By the way Jessica I much prettier then his new girl vanessa. She is beat.

Jessica's #1 fan

Get Rid of Hollywoods Crack Whores NOW    

I sitll say that Jessica Simpson is a horrible actress. As a singer she is pretty good, but i am sick of her and her spoiled brat sister.

PLEASE TMZ dont give any more airtime to the bimbo sisters...opps that can apply to Paris and Nicki too hehe

Can't stand this overrated bimbo...She is not as gorgeous as everyone makes her out to be either, actually her old woman features are terrible. But whatever...Ashlee looks lots better, always has. They are both terrible but Jessica makes me wanna gag...and her singing is by no means GREAT either, nor is her acting but whatever...Jessicas 15mins of fame are over anyway so its all good

And yes i know Angelina nd Brad are doing nice things but so are countless other celebs and people that dont need the attention for their trips or what not...ITS ALL PUBLICITY no matter how great it is, She is disgusting and hes old and ugly now that he dumped Jennifer. I mean Angelina making out with her brother is enough to scare anyone for life and makes her big plastic lips look even uglier!

Yeah, Margaret, travelling to a devastated region, ridden with famine and disease after an earthquake, can only be PR. No-one would photograph Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, the most famous and sought after couple in the world, otherwise.

Having your PR guy convince the papz V. Beckam is arriving at LAX (thus ensuring the presence of a large number of photographers you yourself would never attract because people are fed up with your sorry ass) at the same hour you yourself are arriving, having insisted on taking a commercial flight and on leaving by the front door (something no celebrity ever does) while said PR guy contacts the police saying your are going to be mobbed... THAT can only be the work of a selfless humanitarian and well-balanced human being.

Amanda... "hes old and ugly now that he dumped Jennifer"??? That's so imbecile it's priceless.

Let me try something in your delusional style: "Vince is young and handsome now he pretends to be with Jennifer".

Or: " Dracula is young and vegetarian now that he took up with Jennifer"....

LOL

Levin, I hope your ass is sued big time. God forbid you should print an accurate story asshole. Jen and Vince were pulled over in Scottsdale because the license plate on their rented vehicle was invalid. And that's a fact. A good fat lawsuit would do you good Harvey and I hope its coming because you so deserve it!

I would rather be accused of doing PR for humanitarian causes than being caught driving under the influence.

Note to #10 and 12, you think Jessica Simpson is talented actress and singer. What that happened the to two movies she make, they tanked and went right to video. Even her new CD is not selling. What is wrong with the two of you, unless you are both over 10, then that explains a lot.

Jessica is nothing more than a spoiled btich who thinks she is better than everyone. Plus she is not playing with a full deck.

The only GOOD thing she had going was Nick, and she dropped him like a hot potato.

Let her be miserable and all alone. She deserves it.
