This week, Alicia catches us up on the long, but ultimately not permanent, romance between actors Diane Keaton and Al Pacino. While their love made them one of Hollywood's 1970s and 1980s power couples, in the end, differing views on marriage pushed them apart.

There's been a spate of incidents of people rushing stages to attack celebrities lately, but fortunately for actress and filmmaker Olivia Wilde, the person who recently interrupted her CinemaCon presentation was a process server armed only with a manila envelope. It prompted Stacie to travel back to simpler days, when Olivia and Ted Lasso's Jason Sudeikis were happy and in love. At least, until a British guy named Harry sho...

Following up on her Mitford Sister story from Sunday, Alicia takes us into the odd fascination - and possible romance - of another Mitford Sister. Unity Mitford fell under the sway of Nazi ideology as a teen in her repressive household, and made herself a mover and shaker in Hitler's Germany throughout the 1930s.

This week, Stacie has a 'good divorce,' one where everyone seems to have accepted the situation and stayed friendly and supportive of each other. Unfortunately for actor Lou Diamond Phillips, who by all accounts was very gracious through it all, his first divorce continues to be described in the press as "when his wife, Julie Cypher, left him for Melissa Etheridge." Then, Alicia dips into one of the 20th century'...

For this week's Trashy Breakups, we have a couple who certainly dreamed of flying - but perhaps in different ways. Model and influencer Blac Chyna dreamed of ascending to the lofty heights of fame, while her ex-boyfriend Rob Kardashian may have secretly imagined a future where he'd somehow drifted away from his all too famous family. Their 2016 relationship was short, but the aftereffects are being felt even this very week ...

Alicia kicks off Season 14 with the Trashy Breakup - and the criminal prosecutions - of one-time Silicon Valley darling Elizabeth Holmes and her secret lover Sunny Balwani.
