The couple wrote an email that found its way to Politico, saying, "We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate."

The email continues, "This is very much a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration."

The couple has 4 kids.

Roughly one year ago today -- the couple's daughter Kristin Gore filed for divorce from her husband Paul Cusack.

Since this has been so hush hush I wonder if it was Tipper who cheated.

How come the so called Christian couple are such sex freaks? Their son is a slob druggie. Al Gore gained alot of weight after he gave up the presidential election to Bush. Their marriage was a sham apparently.

Uh, LGF871, you might want to re-read your grammar books before you start lecturing TMZ on journalism skills.



Unless I am mistaken, "The couple" would correctly be considered singular, not plural. It represents a single entity. Unless, of course, you think it would be correct to say things like "The baseball team ARE in first place in the league.? Or, "The school board ARE going to decide the curriculum." Or, "The President's cabinet ARE wise."



(Sorry, I just could not let this go unchallenged.)

Maybe she got fed up when she discovered that what he really invented was the global warming hoax.

TMZ: You need to get the footage when Al and Tipper were at the 1996 Summer Olympics––opening or closing ceremonies when Al was guest or being honored. Covering network showed Tipper screaming at Al as he sat there scarred to death. I think it shows a lot of how the marriage was run.

Well, surprise, surprise. Well one other GOOD point is that TMZ will finally have someone worth ridiculing and making fun of for a month or so. I hope so! Picking on young girls like the Olson's, Lindsey Lohan, and Britney Spears was getting old.
Now we can have some red meat reporting.



OH MY oh MY, TMZ is a liberal rag....geewhiz, I did not know that....I am surprised....I did wonder about their story slants at times.

How could anyone or anything "separate" from Al Gore: the gravitational pull must be OVERPOWERING!

When they go to court to divide the property, I wonder which one will get the internet?
