Man, it really breaks my heart when certain couples break up. Britney and Justin. Jen and Brad. Heidi and Seal. Some couples are just too damn cute for their own good and when they don’t work out I feel a pain in my soul that can only be filled with the literal video version of Total Eclipse Of The Heart. Such is the case with Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs.
The two love birds who have been together for over a decade have decided to stop making sweet musical talented love. And now YouTube is up on my tablet on repeat with the volume maxed out. With a little Rent thrown in every few minutes for nostalgia.Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs met years ago on the original Broadway run of the best musical ever, Rent. Yea, I said best. Suck it Phantom, I want 525,600 minutes of love and gayness baby!
Anyway, she played a lesbian and he played a yuppie landlord, two people who would never get together, but outside of the show they found love. His chocolate and her vanilla came together to make some sweet cookies and cream. Menzel went on to kick major musical ass in Wicked, amongst other shows (and be everything Lea Michele wishes she could be), while Diggs decided to move more towards movies and television. They have a four year old son named Walker who is just a bundle of cuteness.
Now, as picturesque as they seemed to be to the world, the couple was not without controversy. Rumors of Taye digging his penis into ladies that weren’t his wife were rampant over the years. Last year, there was even a source who came out and said Diggs was all over some chick at a nightclub, and even took a polygraph test to prove they weren’t lying for some dough. Of course, the couple never came out to actually negate these as rumors, but Menzel did an interview where she basically came out and said “My husband let his dick wander, I didn’t chop it off, but we are trying to work past it because divorce sucks.”
“We work at it. I’m not going to glamorize it or glorify it — we go through tough times like everybody else, but we love each other very much. We try not to be away from each other for more than two weeks at a time, and we try to find new ways to communicate.”
She also tried not to be away from him for more than two weeks at a time because we all know when the cat’s away, the whores come out to play on your husband’s lap.
Supposedly, Taye hasn’t even been hiding the fact that his marriage was ending. Allegedly he has been out at the clubs, getting his drank on, and saying he couldn’t wait until the news hit so he could stop hiding his ho ways. That shit fills me with the sads because Diggs seems like such a gentleman. The kind of guy who would make you breakfast in bed after a long night of amazingness, and do it all in just an apron because his body is just that damn fine.
But alas, this is Hollywood and it’s rare for anyone to last, no matter how beautiful. But instead of leaving this on a “Diggs is a dog” vibe, let’s end it with an cute as shit video of the two back from this summer when they sang a little tune as a thank you for supporting their charity.
Ugh. Now back to my go-to sad song. Turn around, bright eyes…
