First, we read in Life & Style the most dramatic version yet of the Nick and Jessica divorce story. Snapping! Weeping on planes! But then, we read this:
"Nick and Jessica have not separated," said a joint statement on behalf of the couple. "Rumors to the contrary are simply not true."
"They have not separated," Simpson rep Brad Cafarelli said in an e-mail to The Associated Press.
And we immediately flash back to that horrible, horrible day last summer when we felt the same conflicting emotions, the same fear, the same uncertainty. Who can we trust? Why do the ones you love hurt you the most?
