    I saw National Enquirer today saying Oprah has 2 years to live. And a while ago they said Chaz Bono has 4 years to live. And before that they said other celebrities had x years to live. What should be the thoughts on this?

Pedestals are just so easy to fall from; there's not much room up there for maintaining your footing.

    I thought she was a little over the top whenever I heard her speak about their relationship. ( I am not a big fan of hers)

    I like Seal, I certainly wouldn't kick him out of bed for eating cookies. OTOH maybe he isn't easy to live with. Good luck to them both

    Let's just say that everybody, no matter how good we might think they look, has disgusting dirty underwear and crappy habits! Just ask their mates!!

    I think they were in love with each other but apparently, Seal has a huge temper and then goes very distant for a long time....I think sometimes you can't live with certain behaviors...and sometimes (like in my history) a parent's anger/bad moods etc ultimately damages the kids. We don't know if the kids were sometimes the ones that the outrageous anger hurt.

    Plus, people do just fall out of love. It doesn't mean that they weren't in love to begin with. Sometimes, it just doesn't work out.

    I don't know them or if he has a temper. I wish them well. Its easier to be apart and happy, than together and sad.

    I find it both sad and creepy.... immoral and uncouth. I don't know a single person who buys these publications, so it is surprising to me that they make enough revenue to stay afloat.

    I think it's absurd. No one can know for sure how much time anyone has left. Even doctors can only make educated estimates. Let's face it: we probably all know people who were given a year to live and lived much longer than that while others with better prognoses died much sooner than expected.
