Alanis Morissette has a bitter pill to swallow today: Her relationship with Ryan Reynolds is over.
A source close to the couple told People magazine that Alanis and Ryan, who have been engaged for the last two years, have separated. They first met at Drew Barrymore's birthday party in 2002 and started dating shortly after.
Perhaps an indication that their future together wasn't permanent is that they never announced a wedding date. "We're just really enjoying this [engagement] phase," Alanis said in 2005. Ryan added: "We feel like we're already married."
Expect a few male-bashing songs to come out of this split. Alanis's album Jagged Little Pill is said to have been inspired by another ex -- Full House's Dave Coulier, which I still find downright amazing. Uncle Joey caused Alanis to go haywire?
Finally, I have to say that a lot of the gals in my office -- you know who you are!! -- were quite excited that Ryan is single again. There was a mini-celebration in the cubicle pod next to mine. Are you a Ryan Reynolds devotee too? If so, tell me why.
