Although celeb divorces are super-frequent, we were blindsided when Heidi and Seal announced their separation. (But after seeing this picture, it’s pretty clear they haven’t been getting along.) And if that reveal wasn’t heartbreaking enough, it came on the heels of a slew of other celeb splits: Demi and Ashton, Vanessa and Kobe Bryant, Katy Perry and Russell Brand, to name a few. But as it always goes in Hollywood, every failed, star-studded relationship could have a second chance. And with the aforementioned couples, no finalizing papers have been signed. No completely irrevocable damage has been done. We think that a little R&R would help these duos unite once again — they just need the right recommendations. (From us, natch.)
The A-List Couple: Heidi Klum and Seal
Their Ideal Hotel: Four Seasons Resort Whistler; Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
Why The Hotel Can Save Them: 2004 was a good year for Heidi and Seal. They met, she gave birth to her daughter Leni (whom Seal later adopted), and then he proposed in an igloo in Whistler. So we think they should just head back to where it all began. We know that skiing can bring Heidi and Seal smiles; their last happy photo was a pic of them on the slopes over Christmas. Plus, at the kid-friendly Four Seasons, Mom and Dad can reconnect during a luxurious couples massage while the tots are at the kids club. Then the whole fam can cozy up in front of the fire in one of the massive residences to call it a night.
The A-List Couple: Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher
Their Ideal Hotel: Canyon Ranch Hotel & Spa Miami Beach; Miami, FL
Why It Can Save Them: After all of her recent drama, Demi Moore just needs time to heal. And there’s no better place to fix herself and her marriage than the super-luxe Canyon Ranch in Miami. With some of the most beautifully decorated guest-rooms in Miami, a beach-front location, a great spa, and a huge fitness center with a rock-climbing wall and dozens of daily classes, Canyon Ranch is a great choice for a healthy vacation — provided you’re not also looking for a happening scene. And with Ashton’s track record and Demi’s recent issues, nightlife shouldn’t be missed.
The A-List Couple: Katy Perry and Russell Brand
Their Ideal Hotel: Bryant Park Hotel; New York, NY
Why The Hotel Can Save Them: Though Brand cited “irreconcilable differences” in his divorce filings, reports have claimed that Katy just couldn’t quite cut it in the bedroom. Frankly, we’re surprised that the “Teenage Dream” singer would be anything less than adventurous after seeing a few of her more-than-risque music vids. But regardless, just one night at the swank Bryant Park Hotel could do wonders for this couple. Every room at the hotel has a sex toy menu with options specifically designed for couples (singles, too, FYI), so they’d be sure to find something that they’d both enjoy — and perhaps get their freak on.
The A-List Couple: Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard
Their Ideal Hotel: Geejam; Port Antonio, Jamaica
Why the Hotel Can Save Them: Okay, we admit it: Zooey’s duet with Joseph Gordon-Levitt was adorable, but we think she needs to be singing sweet-nothings with her Death Cab for Cutie frontman hubby. If they did, they maybe wouldn’t be in the marital straits they’re in now. No worries; Geejam to the rescue. Not only is this Jamaican retreat extremely romantic, with only five private, high-tech cottages on the lush (rainy) foothills of Port Antonio, but it has it’s own state-of-the-art recording studio where the couple can record “The Song that Saved Our Marriage.” (It’s a working title.) The Drum and Bass Suite, attached to the studio, boasts gorgeous ocean views.
The A-List Couple: Vanessa and Kobe Bryant
Their Ideal Hotel: Parrot Cay and COMO Shambhala Retreat; Turks and Caicos
Why The Hotel Can Save Them: Despite sticking with him after infidelity claims, Vanessa seems to have had enough. Trust issues, perhaps? So the couple should jet off to the uber-luxurious Parrot Cay Retreat for some QT. (Last time Kobe made an uh-oh, he bought Vanessa a $4 million purple diamond ring). With an incredible infinity-edge pool, a world-renowned spa, doting service, and more than three miles of pristine beaches, it’s easily one of the most romantic options in the Caribbean. Hopefully, the secluded location means Kobe won’t be able to indulge his wandering eye.
The A-List Couple: Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries
Actually, we may have given up on them…
