David Cassidy and his wife are divorcing after 23 years of marriage, reportedly due to his problem with alcohol.

Sue Shifrin-Cassidy, 64, filed for divorce from the onetime heartthrob, 63. The two had been living separate lives for some time. Sue is Cassidy’s third wife, and as per her Facebook page she’s a beauty cream consultant who went to Miami Beach High School. The couple have one son together, Beau, a 23-year-old singer/songwriter.

Cassidy has been arrested on DUI charges three times in the last four years and spoke to Entertainment Tonight from rehab on Feb. 5: “This has been a very difficult time for me battling this deadly disease, like millions of others in the country.”

As of last month, the former Partridge Family star was still trying to unload his condo in Fort Lauderdale, according to Zillow.com.

Used & abused?

Terrell Owens couldn’t make his marriage stick either, but his union seems like a bit of a sham. The ex-NFL player got hitched to postal worker Rachel Snider last month, and it’s already over. Snider told TMZ that Owens only married her so he could qualify for a $2 million home loan. "I felt in love...and now I feel betrayed and heartbroken," Snider tells TMZ. “We had a secret relationship for five years, and I married him for love.”

Let’s talk about sex

Even though Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner has denied reports that her estranged husband Bruce Jenner is taking steps to undergo a sex change, the Olympian’s two teen daughters seem a bit out of sorts. “ Kylie and Kendall just don’t know what to think. It’s extremely confusing for them to grasp. There is just no denying Bruce’s recent physical changes, and he does look more feminine,” an insider told RadarOnline. A picture of Jenner emerged Monday that revealed a much smoother neck, thanks to a laryngeal shave, and a feminine, blown out hairstyle.

Money trouble

Too many shopping trips or is it plastic surgery? Baywatch babe Donna Derrico has fallen on hard times — for a celebrity, that is. RadarOnline.com unearthed court documents that the actress only had $20 to her name. In paperwork filed in the Central District of California, the 45-year-old ex-wife of Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx said she had assets totaling $413,574.74 and liabilities totaling $947,332.22. Derrico listed almost $600,000 in legal debt and a credit card debt at more than $20K. Sixx pays her $7,800 a month, plus 5 percent of all earnings for the more than $2.1 million that the 55-year-old rocker makes annually. Nice prenup!

Blast from the past

Garry Trudeau may be taking a leave from Doonesbury to focus on Alpha House, his Amazon Instant Video political comedy starring John Goodman, but don’t mourn the Pulitzer Prize-winning comic strip just yet. Beginning March 3, entertainment in the form of Doonesbury Flashbacks will be available Monday through Saturday in The Miami Herald, going back to the early years. “With 43 years of material to draw from, there are still some 13,000 strips that haven't been seen since they were originally published,” said Trudeau, 65, in a statement.

Vollmann has traveled to war zones, pored over the U.S.-Mexico border and made a study of the world’s destitute. His mammoth curiosity encompasses questions of war, morality, economics, lifestyle, gender, aesthetics, art and music.
