We just heard the heartwreching news: Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' marriage is kaput. But MAD doesn't like to dwell on the negative. Instead, let's remember them as they were just six short years ago, basking in the glow of new parenthood...
Ann Curry has left her co-anchor position on NBC's The Today Show, saying a tearful goodbye to viewers just as NBC execs were saying a tearful goodbye to the show's 852-week streak as morning ratings champ. Officially, Ann was ousted from the position after Good Morning America took the top ratings spot, but who can say what really happened in the fast-and-furious-and-forgettable world of morning TV?

John Edwards and Rielle Hunter recently announced that they’re ending their relationship. This marks the end of an era of cheating and lies — unless, of course, Edwards decides to reenter politics.
