But one Hollywood even left Giuliana “shocked,” she told us exclusively — Jim Carrey & Jenny McCarthy!
We all know Hollywood relationships can end in a flash, but when it came to the announcement of Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy breaking up after five years on April 7 via Twitter, E! News host Giuliana Rancic tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “I was SHOCKED! I thought they were a really cute couple and they’d go the distance!”
“They were really good for each other,” she said. “He was a part of her son’s life. She was a part of his daughter’s life. They stayed pretty private. I liked everything about them as a Hollywood couple, so a lot of people are shocked! It came out of no where.”
Giuliana wonders if the stresses associated with maintaining successful careers are what maimed the couple’s romance. “Hollywood marriages are super hard,” Giuliana told us. “For actors, it’s real hard because they go on these sets and make out with the most beautiful people. Temptation is a big factor. Even if you’re acting, there are emotions involved. It’s an odd business and it’s very hard to stay together.”
So what’s Giuliana’s advice for handling the Hollywood break-up syndrome? She told us, “If your job is to make out with people, stay single! If you’re not going to stay single, hopefully you’ve got a good head on your shoulders and you can separate business from lust.”
On a more positive note, we now know at least one person in Hollywood is experiencing good luck in the relationship department. Giuliana confirmed to us that her fellow E! News anchor, Ryan Seacrest, DOES have a hot blonde girlfriend because he sent Giuliana an email saying, “Stop talking about the blonde girl!” And though Giuliana wasn’t willing to dish on her co-worker’s new fling, she did say that Ryan’s new gal pal is “very pretty and famous!”
Ryan, we just hope you’re immune to the Hollywood breakup syndrome!
