Literary Power Couple Jonathan Safran Foer & Nicole Krauss Split Up

The Kid-Dish: All the Jewish celebrity parent gossip you (n)ever wanted to know.Nicole-Jonathan

-It’s a sad day for Jewish lit fans everywhere. Literary power couple Jonathan Safran Foer and Nicole Krauss legally separated–which means they broke up about a year ago and no one knew about it! I mean, there were whisperings about their $14.5 million Park Slope home going on the market (it didn’t sell), but no one had an inkling that this too-talented-for-words pair was even on the rocks. (Page Six)

-In happier news, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are (allegedly) consciously recoupling. Don’t know what else there is to say except, wasn’t it just yesterday that they were consciously uncoupling? Is there actually a way to unconsciously uncouple? (People)

-Speaking of conscious couples, Jason Biggs and Jenny Mollen are very much together and spilled everything parenthood and their new baby Sid in People this week. The decidedly wanna-be Jewish actor said that becoming a dad was so emotional that he cried in the delivery room. (People)

-First Jewish “Bachelorette” ever Andi Dorfman went to France with her 11 remaining men in the latest episode of this season, and dealt with racism, mimes, and frog legs. Follow Kveller contributer Tova Ross‘ recaps of the show over at Jewcy. (Jewcy)

-Amanda Peet wrote a picture book about Christmas–or lack thereof. “Dear Santa, Love Rachel Rosenstein,” which will be released by Random House Children’s books in the fall of 2015, tells the story of a young Jewish girl who wonders why Santa doesn’t visit her house. Peet said she was inspired by her two children, who wanted to know why their family didn’t have a Christmas tree. (ABC News)

-Drew Barrymore bounced right back after second daughter Frankie, she told People. The pounds fell off much faster than they did with first daughter Olive, who is now 1.5. She also talked about the challenges of juggling two babies: “Just being split. They’re awake and asleep at different times, or awake at the same time, and it’s a juggling act a little bit.” (People)

-Andi Dorfman, the first-ever Jewish “Bachlorette,” said “no thanks” to hot tubs and bikinis. “Mine will probably be on the more romantic side,” she told TV Guide of her series which kicked off on Monday. “You will not see a lot of hot-tub scenes; it’s not really my thing. But I feel like you can be sexy by being romantic and it doesn’t need to involve bikinis and hot tubs.” (TV Guide)

-Speaking of the Bachelorette, honorary Jew Jason Biggs landed in hot water for his Twitter commentary on the show, in which he made light of contestant Eric Hill’s tragic death in a sky diving accident. (Huff Post)
