Sarandon and Robbins Split; Mary J. Blige Unleashes

• One of Hollywood's longest-lasting relationships is over: After 23 years and two sons, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins announced yesterday that they've called it quits. One possible reason for the split: It seems Sarandon may have been having an affair with one of the owners of Spin, the "ping pong social club" that opened this fall and in which she's an investor.

Mary J. Blige is not to be messed with, clearly. At her CD release party earlier this week, she smacked husband Kendu Isaacs—or punched, depending on which account of the incident you want to go with—after she noticed him checking out a waitress. [NYDN, P6]
• Members of the cast of Jersey Shore have moved to the second chapter of "Exploiting Reality TV Stardom: Practices & Procedures": They're asking to be paid appearance fees to show up at clubs. Alas, not even a club in Hoboken was willing to cough up the $10K that they've been asking for. [P6]

• Brittany Murphy will be buried tonight in a private service at Forrest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills. [E!]
• In other Murphy news, a promotional poster for the DVD of Deadline—featuring "an ashen-faced Brittany Murphy portraying a dead woman"—is now being removed from stores. Sounds like a good idea. [NYP]

• Courtney Love lost legal custody of daughter Frances Bean Cobain recently. Then a temporary restraining order was issued, which banned her from contacting Frances. The latest? A new court motion makes mention of "allegations of domestic violence." [E!]
• Vanessa Hudgens has filed suit against a website after it posted "nude self-portraits" that they took off of someone's cell phone. [TMZ]
• Tila Tequila is clarifying comments she made earlier in the week. She isn't pregnant yet; she's "about to be pregnant." Alrighty then. [NYDN]
• Dr. Conrad Murray may have been partly responsible for Michael Jackson's death. But that isn't going to stop him from starring in his own TV special, is it? No, it is not. [NYDN]
• Tiger Woods didn't escape to the high seas, after all. Despite reports he'd departed Florida on his mega-yacht, it's still docked in Palm Beach. [Us]
