Is Christina Hendricks & Geoffrey Arend’s marriage on the rocks?

I don’t mean to mimic my late father, but he had the unfortunate habit of giving people random and sometimes too-on-target nicknames, and I find myself doing the same thing too. Whenever I see Christina Hendricks and her husband, I think to myself “Titsy McGinger and The Nerd King.” Because… for real. Christina is a talented actress and everything, but it’s just all boobs and red hair. And her husband seems nice enough, but he also seems like a total nerd who lucked out by marrying the bombshell ginger with the amazing rack, thus ensuring his place at the top of the nerd kingdom. Anyway, weird/sad news! Star Mag (yeah) says that there might be trouble between Titsy and Nerdy.

One of TV’s hottest women may soon be single. Friends of Christina Hendricks, 37, say her success has ruined her marriage to struggling actor Geoffrey Arend, 34, who recently turned up to a family-thrown couples party without her.

“It wasn’t that long ago that he was the one with the promising acting career, not Christina,” says a source. “Part of him resents that she has this huge gig. There aren’t many men who could put up with all the attention Christina gets.”

Well… it wouldn’t surprise me either way. I noticed late last year that Christina seemed to be doing more and more events solo, and that it seemed like she and Geoffrey weren’t spending as much time together (in public, at least). But… it is Star, and it’s not like they even have conclusive or anecdotal proof of a “marriage on the rocks.” And while Geoffrey does seem like a talented character actor, it’s always going to be difficult for two actors to be together, especially when only one of them has had a career breakthrough. So, I hope this story is wrong, but I have to acknowledge that it could be true. For what it’s worth, a “source” told Gossip Cop that the story is false and “They are super happy and supportive of one another…. They are very in love.”

    He resents her “huge gig” and probably her huge rack too!
    Enty had a blind about this a while back and most people guessed them as the couple on the rocks.

    I’m afraid “Titsy McGinger” is now seared into my brain, too. :)

    I wonder if her snozberries taste like snozberries.

  5. Word says:

    How does she log those things around?

    I’d totally forgotten about her Susan Sugarbaker dress!

    He is on Body of Proof w Dana Delaney, so he can’t be “struggling” that much…

    Isn’t jealousy usually the problem with Hollywood relationships? I hope it’s not true. They’re cute together.

    OMG my dad does that too and so do I! its become worse as i have gotten older too and lost brain cells (college) because now I can rarely remember their real names!

    All I can ever think of when I see him is “When the F*** did we get ice cream???” hahaha

  11. midnightmoon says:

    He’s kinda cute in a froggy sort of way, and that sequined dress in the middle photo is the first she has worn that doesn’t give me the vapors. That looks stunning on her without advertising the whole sensing.

  12. Shelly says:

    She needs to take up with Jon Hamm and bring my unrealized fantasy to life of Joan and Don getting together.

  13. Babalon says:

    Sorry for going off-topic here but – damn. That first photo makes me feel insecure about being a tall skinny-bitch. :/

    Damn you genetics!

  14. akua says:

    I like her, and generally the red hair, but it always seems just a little bit too fake to me, but I’m far from an expert…

  15. dee says:

    Don’t know if I believe this… He is a series regular on body of proof on ABC with Dana Delany. Christina H. even made an appearance on the show (believe it was the first season).

    Stop hating on the nerds. I think hes cuuute. I hope its just a rumor cus they are cute together.

  17. bettyrose says:

    If it doesn’t work out, I’ll marry her! (I’m a total nerd girl. Consider my offer, Christina). Though not in CA, obviously, until the Supreme Court decision comes through.

  18. JEM says:

    I saw them out last weekend with either his or her parents. They looked very happy together, and were really unassuming about their celebrity. She is super gorgeous in person, btw.

  19. Mrs. Ari Gold says:

    I thought she was so smart for marrying him because he seemed like he would support her being a bigger star. If this guy is not willing to give up his ego then what would be the point of staying?

    Get out Christina! If Nerd King isn’t supportive then lose him and at least date a hot dude who isn’t supportive :-P
