Rumors have been swirling lately that the thought-to-be rock-solid rock n' roll marriage between Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon is now, well, on the rocks. Ozzy has apparently admitted on Facebook that he's been using drugs and drinking alcohol again and has just been a total nightmare to his family. Yet he denied that they are splitting. SooSharon is just taking some much-deserved "me" time at the Esperanza.
She's probably booked one of the resort's villas which include gourmet kitchens, spacious bedrooms and baths, garden courtyards and sweeping ocean views, although she would probably be equally happy in one of the casitas or suites at the Auberge hotel which start at 925 sq. ft. of indoor/outdoor living space and have private terraces (with hammocks!)

The TomKat Divorce might be over and done with but the rumors behind Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' bizarro marriage--especially involving the religion that shall not be named--will probably live on forever. And given that the duo spent most of their time aboard private jets and private yachts and checking in and out of hotels, we've been waiting for the hotel gossip to come. And National Enquirer does not disappoint.
The tabloid reports that just two weeks before Katie filed for divorce, the duo checked into the "best hotel in all of Iceland", The Hilton Nordica and was holed up in the $1,000-a night Presidential Suite while Tom was filming his latest movie. But oddly enough, Tom had his bodyguards put up black duct tape over the security cameras that are placed in the corridor outside the suite.

Divorce is maybe the one scenario where a hotel bar—rather than the room itself—might prove more useful. Well, that's where we'd end up, anyway.
Not so for the seventeen (and counting) Dutch couples who have found success through a new marketing ploy known as "Divorce Hotel." Over the weekend, the NY Times reported on the bizarre new service, which has been launched by a Dutch entrepreneur named Jim Halfens.
Hot on the heels of Divorce Hotel's European success, Halfens is now attempting to introduce the concept to hotels in New York and Los Angeles—though no word yet on which ones in particular. Our one suggestion? No tiny boutiques! If this is going to work at all (and we're not entirely convinced yet), we're picturing monster places like the Westin Bonaventure and Marriott Marquis Times Square. Basically, the bigger, the better.

Celebrating New Year's Eve as a newly single man, Russell Brand wasn't exactly his usual cheery self as he struggled to come to terms with his divorce, alone in London. The Forgetting Sarah Marshall star attempted to get as far away as possible from ex-wife Katy Perry—over 5,000 miles, to be exact—who meanwhile was partying it up at Soho House in West Hollywood.
According to The Mirror, Russell moped around The Savoy, ordering room service (meal for one), offsetting it with some time at the gym, and generally spreading his misery around the place like a bad smell. When one guest went up to him to wish him a happy New Year, Brand responded: "Here's hoping it gets happier." Or should we call him Eeyore.

The big news this weekend was the death of North Korea's "Dear Leader" Kim Jong-il. But in Kobe Bryant's world, another catastrophe was unfolding: namely, the fact that he never signed a prenup with his wife Vanessa before ending their ten-year marriage. Yikes.
Now that word is out, and the divorce papers are on their way, Kobe has chosen to forfeit his multi-million dollar Newport Coast mansion and hole out in a nearby hotel for the time being. And so far, the only guest he's entertained since checking in has been his pooch.
According to TerezOwens (basically a Perez site for sports fans), Kobe was spotted "staying in the South Villa of a resort in Newport with his dog." With any luck, the hotel might even consider employing the furry critter until the two of them get back on their
It must be true. Your choice of hotel mirrors your station in life. Take for example this celebrity couple on the brink of divorce.
Ashton Kutcher most likely ended his marriage to Demi Moore with a groupie sex fling at at the Hard Rock in San Diego, a notorious party hotel. Meanwhile, Demi sought solace from the sex scandal in the loving arms of the refined Crosby Street Hotel in Soho.
Star Magazine managed to
bribe get a staffer to divulge the details of Demi's stay and it's super sad.
She didn't have any visitors, including room service or maid service during her stay, a hotel insider reveals. And she was never spotted outside her room except for when she left to appear on Good Morning America and to attend the premiere of her upcoming film, Five, on September 26.
Maria Shriver? newly divorced? Ready to fling your wedding ring into a deep dark abyss? How about giving it a burial party down in Mexico?
While hotel packages catering to the newly divorced are nothing new, Casa Velas in Puerto Vallarta is going the distance with their new Divorcee Package which includes a ceremonial farewell party to your old wedding ring complete with a coffin.
The package will also include a stay for the divorcee and five friends in the hotel's newly renovated Presidential (or is that Presidente?) Suite, a jewelry consultation to redesign your ex-engagement ring, a VIP night on the town, a spa treatment, VIP airport transportation and a shopping tour to "start enjoying that settlement." Hmm...calling Jamie McCourt.
There was trouble brewing in the Monegasque paradise between Prince Albert of Monaco and his bride Princess Charlene, long before they tied the knot on July 1. But you would think that they could at least try and enjoy their honeymoon in South Africa?
After all, they were staying in the presidential suite of the Oyster Box Hotel on the beach in Umhlanga Rocks. The suite alone spans two floors, with its own private elevator, two bedrooms, two marble bathrooms with views of the ocean, a study, a lounge, a dining room that seats 10 and a fully equipped kitchen. Oh and its own swimming pool.
But sadly the strain of the allegations that Prince Albert fathered yet another child out of wedlock may have forced him to seek out his own less luxurious hotel room at the Hilton in Durban, ten miles away from the Oyster Box.

Where there is a scandalous celebrity couple breakup, there is a luxury hotel in Los Angeles awaiting the broken-hearted with open arms and giant suites. The latest hotel to be there for that A-list someone is The Montage Beverly Hills where Maria Shriver is reportedly living while she works on divorcing the Sperminator, er, Terminator Arnold Schwarzenegger.
TMZ has the scoop saying that Maria even met with her divorce attorney at the hotel.
With rumors going around that Maria is expected get at least a $200 million divorce settlement, there's no excuse for her not to book one of the hotel's 55 residential-style luxury suites.
Could recently separated celebs Eva Longoria and Tony Parker be reuniting? Honestly, we don't care. We just want to know where they had their post-separation meet-up.
TMZ reports that the duo had lunch at an LA-area hotel but surprisingly, TMZ didn't name the hotel. Yet we did some sleuthing and we're confident that the divorce discussion (or maybe they were just discussing the Wikileaks scandal) happened at the Coast restaurant on the bottom floor of Shutters on The Beach in Santa Monica. Those striped cushions totally give it away!
Given how many celebrities go wild at hotels after making divorce/separation announcements, perhaps hotels really need to ramp up their divorce packages. Once again making the gossip sites for his newly-single behavior is David Arquette who has probably never been talked about as much as he did when he was still with Courtney Cox.
"He was dancing on tabletops with a trombone. He wouldn't stop playing it all night long," our spy said. Arquette was seen leaving the club with a brunette at 6 a.m. and was spotted with the same woman poolside the next day.
On Sunday, Arquette cuddled up with a cabana host at the pool which he Twitpic'd for all of us to see.
Celebrity Scoop / Christina Aguilera / Divorce Hotels / SLS Hotels / Los Angeles Hotels / → All Tags
What a girl wants is apparently a good hotel. Christina Aguilera, last seen in Hawaii at the Waikiki Edition, has been coping with the recent divorce in the best way that celebs can--by hotel hopping.
Paps spotted her outside the SLS Hotel in Los Angeles with her son, Max, a couple of assistants and some luggage. She's reportedly been shacking up at the hotel while her husband sticks around their house.
Even though we think Christina would do fine in one of the hotel's superior rooms (their starting room category) with its "floating" beds and dark and sexy decor, we're guessing she probably shacked up in one of the SLS Suites--a 1,500-sq.ft room designed by Philippe Starck with a dining table for six, a separate sitting area with white tufted leather couches, two 42" inch flat screen TVs and a 17" iMac computer.
Regular rooms at SLS start around $300 a night but these suites can fetch as much as $700 a night.
