Enrique and Anna: Splitsville? * At the Crillon Haute Couture Ball * The Napoleonic Complex

International pop star Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova, his tennis-playing cutie, have just agreed to disagree and have broken up. Enrique’s father, the legendary lothario and singer Julio Iglesias, is fond of Anna, and is telling Enrique not to do anything rash. The sexy couple met two years ago in Long Beach, Calif., where they filmed a red-hot video together. They told everyone for a while that they were just good friends, but when they finally showed up together at the 2002 MTV Music Awards, the cat was out of the bag. The couple became famous — or infamous — for their public displays of affection and she made it no secret that her favorite place was on his lap where she’s been photographed non-stop. They’ve been living together in Miami for over a year and Enrique even bought an $8 million mansion in Hollywood as their little love nest. But don’t mail your picture and résumé just yet. He’s muy Latino and she’s ochen Ruski and both are prone to melodramatic gestures.

Of course by now you’ve heard Gwyneth Paltrow and her boyfriend, Chris Martin, are expecting their first child next summer. But what you might not know is that they have promised each other to take a full year off from their busy careers in order to make the process a gentle and loving one. There are also quiet plans afoot for a wedding sometime next year. They are anxious to include their families in a formal wedding after the baby is born and Gwyneth gets her figure back. The British clairvoyant, Sharon Neil, claims that Martin recently visited her to quiz her about his chances for a happy marriage. As for Gwyneth, her thoughts about her ideal future is that her marriage will be blessed “with three or four children.”

Have you heard that 47-year-old Geena Davis is expecting twins next year? She is married to surgeon Dr. Reza Jarrahy and already has an 18-month old daughter. Geena will play Debra Messing’s sister on the hit series “Will and Grace” this season and of course we all know too that Messing, herself, is expecting a real-life baby next year.
