The One Where Brad & Jen Separate

Had a pretty chill night hanging out with Sarah and Mark. We had dinner at Chili's and I had to snap this picture of this guy's coat:

Not sure if you can tell but it's a leather jacket that has embroidered money all over it. Bling Bling!

Then we headed over to a new bar in Dearborn called Venue to see the houseband Blackberry Brandy. On our way we swung by the Toy Chest to see what was the haps ... Mark and I decided that we're going to visit the Toy Chest on Feb. 14 cuz We So Hor-ny:

Candice was there so we hung out with her crazy ass for a bit. The band was pretty good (the last time I saw them was about 10 years ago when they were the houseband at Simon's in Allen Park). They are a coverband and they played hits from the 80's (Rick Springfield's My Little Runaway), 90's (Our Lady Peace's Starseed) and now (Franz Ferdinand's Take Me Out) to much fanfare.

Not long after we arrived, Candice's friend got a call from his wife telling him that news of Brad and Jennifer's separation was all over the news. I was a bit skeptical but a text message to Shane confirmed it:

And so did Entertainment Tonight. The statement they gave to People Magazine reads thus:

"We would like to announce that after seven years together we have decided to formally separate. For those who follow these sorts of things, we would like to explain that our separation is not the result of any of the speculation reported by the tabloid media. This decision is the result of much thoughtful consideration."

And it goes on from there ... WOW is all I can say. I'm tired an am going to bed ... more on this tomorrow.
