Denzel Washington’s wife: Why we work


They just click

While the majority of Hollywood marriages implode left and right, Denzel and Pauletta Washington somehow keep the spark alive. The sex symbol’s wife of 30 years gave Ebony an insight on how it works: “I live with this man. I see the down part. I see the sad part. I see every part. He has and knows he has that stability in me as his wife. That gives him strength, regardless of if he misuses it. I can’t dwell on that. But I do know that gives him a great platform to go and fly.”

In our opinion, their marriage works because neither one of them is too public nor do they discuss their union (until now).

Showing support

Dierks Bentley has one day off the rest of this month, and he’s giving it to the families of fallen firefighters in Arizona. The country music star will host the “Country Cares Concert” on July 22 in Prescott Valley, Ariz., where 19 members of a wildland firefighting crew were killed last week. Their deaths left behind 51 fatherless children, a number that sticks with the former Arizona resident as he waits for the birth of his third child later this year.

Hi, Honey

What’s on Johnny Depp’s DVR? The 50-year-old says he is fascinated by reality breakout star Honey Boo Boo. The Lone Ranger star told Extra: “I’m a little frightened of the show. They’re probably great people, but there are bits that happen that I just am mesmerized by.” Meanwhile, Boo Boo’s (married) mother Mama June told In Touch Depp isn’t her celebrity crush; it’s (also married) Mario Lopez.

Meanwhile, Depp’s girlfriend Amber Heard didn’t want to talk about their ultra hush-hush relationship. In an interview with Bullett magazine, she would only say, “The island ... is my private life,” she said referring to their getaway (Depp owns Little Hall’s Pond Cay in the Bahamas).

Such sweet sorrow

Hey, it’s better than a text. Sources tell TMZ George Clooney and Stacy Keibler broke up over the phone. The long distance couple had reportedly been growing apart over the last three months, with George in Europe working on a movie and Stacy in L.A. working on her upcoming Lifetime TV show, Supermarket Superwars.

PDA alerts

Let’s hope Naomi Campbell doesn’t flip when she sees paparazzi photos of her ex billionaire boyfriend Vladimir Doronin living it up in Ibiza with Chinese model Luo Zilin. Campbell mentored Luo on The Face earlier this year. so this is personal.

Jesse Eisenberg likes to flirt, but Mia Wasikowska has won his heart, at least for now. The actors, who costarred in The Double, were photographed kissing in Toronto.
