Talk about chalk and cheese, I am surprised the wedding even took place given Russells history with women. I hate to say it was doomed from the start, but here you go. I hope Katy had a pre-nup!

This does not surprise me at all. In my opinion i think that all he wanted was the pootang and once he was tired of it then he left.

Blindsided YES because more than likely Katy wanted to be the one who would file the do***ents first. But he beat her to it.

How was Katy blindsided by this? She was photographed without her wedding ring before Russell was.

I'm Team Russell on this one - she never really seemed to get the whole idea of marriage. She seemed like she just wanted to go out and party all the time. Sure he has a womanizing past, but that was also due to his addictions. If he's clean & sober, then he may have been faithful. People are so quick to jump on him - but she's definitely not a goody-goody either.

Katy and Hubby

Obviously something happened, problem is that celebs tend to let things really blow up instead of working things through and compromising as a result of their professions and how their lives operate with everyone doing what they want. Two opposing forces like that, no one wants to give and things get out of hand. Give Katy my number, she was rocking that Bikini.

Lance Bass...

He earned his money, let him enjoy it. He will find something to occupy his time, even if its beach bumming. I would do the same thing but I know I would find something to do to keep from being bored to death. He doesn't have to find the cure to cancer, but you would hope he would do something even if it is bringing a hobby or interest thats not a standard career.
