Everybody, Give Up Now: Arnett, Poehler Splitting Up
It’s over. That one relationship that gave us all hope that love exists, and can endure. It’s over. Naturally, People brought us the News That Ruined Everyone’s Day and the Internets reacted appropriately:
We just might need to amend our list of the celebrity breakups that rocked our civilization. (Courtney would be writing this, but she threw herself to the ground when she learned of the divorce and has refused to get up.) Yes, yes, the matter is really none of our business and we shouldn’t invest ourselves in celebrity relationships in the first place. But the adorableness this particular couple exuded in public couldn’t be denied. We wanted to hang out with them; we wanted to be them. But not everything is as perfect as we want it to be.
Both are nominated for Emmy awards, which will be handed out Sept. 23 — Poehler for “Parks and Recreation” and Arnett for a guest spot on “30 Rock.” Presumably, they’ll walk the red carpet separately, and understandably, we will all eat our feelings and cry ourselves to sleep.
I’ll leave you with one of my favorite collaborations of the two from “Parks and Rec.” Pardon me while I wallow.
