Divorce Is Bad for Box Office?



Remember when Chris Rock filed for divorce from his wife, Malaak, in November? They don’t! At least that’s how it seemed on Wednesday’s episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, during  which the pair showed no signs of deviation from wedded bliss. It was weird. New York Daily News reports that  the seeming divorce motion may actually have been a matter of ironing out a post-nup agreement, and that furthermore, the producers of Chris’ I Think I Love My Wife (due out March 16) have urged him to halt all of such proceedings until the film has been sufficiently promoted. Because if there’s one thing the American public loves, it’s a happily married couple with neatly arranged finances.

Who knows what this means for the future of Chris and Malaak. There’s been buzz of a Brangelina-like fling from the set of Wife between Chris and his co-star Kerry Washington. Ooh! If they haven’t already, they should hook up. Then, we could all start calling them "Cherry." [New York Daily News]
