Star: Miranda Kerr & Orlando Bloom have announced plans to renew their vows

It’s been said many times that the kiss of death to any marriage is the much-ballyhooed “vow renewal”. Heidi Klum and Seal renewed their vows on their anniversary every year… until they didn’t, because Heidi was boning the help or whatever (I still don’t know exactly what happened there?). Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony renewed their vows just before they split, as did Madonna and Guy Ritchie and… Kate and Jon Gosselin. Still, there are some celebrities who manage to renew their vows AND stay together… so far. Maybe Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom will be one of those couples made stronger by adversity and the widespread reports of their faltering marriage will bring them closer together. Sure. Why not?

Orlando Bloom has put an end to rumors that he’s about to split from his wife Miranda Kerr by announcing to pals that the pair will be renewing their vows. Bloom is planning a big party in LA to celebrate their third anniversary in July.

“The gossip about them divorcing brought them closer,” an insider reports. “After Miranda’s career took off in 2011, the two went through a period when it was “hard for them to find time for each other… But the crisis forced them to change. Orlando’s being very attentive and she’s been reading his scripts, helping him pick his next part.”

The thing is… I believe Orlando probably is being more attentive. I believe Orly is probably a really decent guy who loves his wife. I’m not saying Miranda is crazy or damaged or that she’s fooling around… but I’m just saying that my gut is telling me that she’s kind of over it. She went through a phase – The Orly Phase. She married him and had a baby and now she’s kind of over it and she’s looking to see what else is out there. It will be interesting to see if the vow renewal actually does happen!

Here are some new photos of Miranda earlier this week in Sydney, doing a runway show for David Jones. The weird part? I think Miranda was the only model…? I think she was forced to model the entire collection.

    Beautiful girl! Not crazy about that 3rd outfit but Miranda can pull it off.

  2. The Wizz says:

    God if that’s the whole collection David Jones has to offer this season I’ll sadly be going nude.

  3. brin says:

    Yep…nothing says divorce like vow renewals.

  4. allons-y alonso says:

    Kerr wasn’t the only model at the show but she is the main face of David Jones’.

  5. mkyarwood says:

    When my husband and I got married, it was in front of 20 people, just very close family…. and a lot of our family on both sides was pissed about it. I always thought of doing a vow renewal party, inviting everyone, having favors and whatnot. Are you saying that everyone will think this if I do!?

    • mln76 says:

      Nah I don’t think in that context people will think that. In this case there have been rumors of separation buzzing around them. That is why people think the vow renewal is a last ditch effort to save the marriage.
      Personally I hope it works. I want them to have another adorable baby.

    • fabgrrl says:

      Oh, no, not at all. Not everyone. Plenty of people have a small, quickie wedding, and then a WEDDING later – like after the baby is born, or deployment is up, etc.

      It just seems like the kiss of death for celebrities. Why announce such a thing publicly, unless you are trying to convince the world that everything is JUST FINE!

  6. Green is Good says:

    A vow renewal ceremony is merely an excuse to throw a party.

  7. Kiki says:

    Celebs renewing their vows= headed towards divorce. Same as Heidi and Seal.

    • Eleonor says:

      I was going to write the same thing!
      You can throw a party for an anniversary, it’s fine, but vote renowal? Screams divorce.

      • Kath says:

        It’s not just celebs. Everyone I know (including my own brother and sister-in-law) who renewed their vows ended up getting a divorce soon afterwards.

        I think it’s because – in these types of cases – it’s a matter of a couple trying to “start again” after a difficult period… growing apart, cheating etc.

        They think that renewing their vows is a way of beginning anew and pressing the ‘reset’ button. Perhaps marriage counsellors are recommending them?

        Of course, there are always those folks who might just have had an awesome life together and want to celebrate… but yeah, in my experience.. vow renewal = imminent divorce.

  8. katie says:

    I love her. I don’t even know why! I hope things are okay in their cutie pie little family.

    • lulu1 says:

      I like them both. And Flynn.
      I wish they would make their money and run. That’s what Miranda used to say she wanted: a bunch of kids to be brought up really normally in the countryside…of course, she’s probably seeing the advantages to their current life style (and bank balances) but it would be sooooooooo cool if they just dropped out. And so much better for their son. Nicole Kidman actually seems to strike a balance, living in Tennessee. You never see pics of her on the school run as you do the Garner-Afflecks or Nahla Aubry. Flynn is getting photographed every time his dad takes him hiking or his mom takes him to the gym. Not nice….

      • stellalovejoydiver says:

        Sorry to burst your bubble, but they call the paparazzi, and her “I am good wholesome girl from the country” shtick is fake.

      • Matt says:

        Funny, Flynn isn’t papped at all when she’s away. Bloom wasn’t bothered in Aspen and wasn’t papped coming back to LA on his B-Day and the Globes. But they can’t get through the airport for the Cancun trip. Bloom wasn’t papped in LA the entire post-Globes week until Kerr returned from NYC. Do you see the pattern? That’s not to say she can’t get away from the spotlight, she can and that’s another thing. The pap attention comes in chunks at Kerr’s convenience or call. She says they’re stalked by the paps. She does appear to be one of the few celebs (her husband’s not included) who can’t go anywhere sometimes w/out being papped even in NYC. And she’s the only model this happens to besides Ambrosio in the last year (hmm…she’s another one) and Kate Moss! But I haven’t seen any pap photos of her this week, and just last summer or something when she had Bloom, Flynn and her parents with her they all made a big show of how they were being harassed by the paps and Kerr was really in town to make PR appearances for Qantas. See the pattern… :lol:

        I honestly don’t get what people like about Kerr or Bloom besides their looks. Some people say they seem nice. But really it’s just that the bad celebs get all the press. Think of all the celebrities you can name or like, how many of them don’t SEEM nice?

  9. poppy says:

    lord, he should get out now if she’s helping him pick scripts.

    i think it is sort of creepy she’s been modeling so long because her face still looks like a child’s, always has. no fault of hers. the younger they want the models to look while not wearing much in the way of clothing is sort pedo-creepy.

  10. Bored suburbanhousewife says:

    To me vow renewal like this seems like a gimmick to make the insecure one in the couple feel more secure in the relationship by means of a public declaration and affirmation.

    Perhaps the dominant partner has cheated or seemed restless, but the insecure one needs a ” live demonstration” of love and commitment. This speaks to an underlying insecurity or lapse that probably cannot be overcome and willl shortly lead to divorce. Maybe vow renewal now substitutes for the old ” lets have another baby and see if that brings us together again ” gambit.

  11. Miss Kiki says:

    Oh this divorce is imminent. I’ve suspected that Miranda was over it for a while now, the Leo rumours just confirmed it for me. She seems like such an up tradey girl, I think when she married Orly she though he was going places and it would get her more fame, somehow she’s become some sort of it girl (bleugh) whereas Orly is fading into obscurity so now she needs to hitch herself onto someone else.

  12. CS says:

    She’s so pretty but those outfits are fug.

  13. annabelle says:

    I think the couple who wants to renew their vows is very likely the same couple who were all about the wedding and not so much about the marriage.

  14. Dawn says:

    God she is pretty and I love these two together. But a vow renewal never sounds good to me unless it’s been like 10 years or more. I just hope they pop out one more kid before the marriage goes south. I think that Flynn is among the cutest of all celebrity babies out there.

  15. dorothy says:

    I love her, but am tiring of the constant photo opp’s and self promotion.

  16. flipflop says:

    How lovely, she’s going to throw herself a “Look at me!” party.

    Maybe Leo can give her away and Terry Richardson can take pictures of the picture book moment.

  17. Lauren says:

    There’s a saying out there about Miss Miranda…”If you’ve never worked with her before, you will love her. If you’ve worked with her, you will loathe her.”

    Don’t let those sweet dimples fool you

  18. Madpoe says:

    Vow Renewals=divorce. I was tempted to do that for my 10 yr wedding anniversary and then I’m like I think that’s bad luck to do that!

  19. Cathy says:

    The other poster was right. Vow renewals shouldn’t be until you’ve been married ten or even twenty years. It seems to me they’re just trying to squash the split rumors. But whatever, it’s their choice.

  20. Karen says:

    Considering all the blind items that seem to suggest Miranda isn’t faithful and cheats on Orlando constantly this PR move is expected. Whether the BI is her or not, she loves her squeaky clean image.

  21. Snowpea says:

    I’ve never bought these two as a proper couple. There’s zero chemistry between them. You would think such delicious looking people would be super hot for each other but I’m not seeing it.

    Now, just because it’s so freakin’ hilarious, I’m gonna steal Leann’s line: Middle finger for the haters Miranda!

  22. Chrissy says:

    Her hair looks terrible at the fashion show. Like she just came from the gym.

  23. EscapedConvent says:

    I seem to recall Tom Cruise & Nicole Kidman having a ceremony to renew their vows for their 10-year anniversary. Several weeks later, he hit her with divorce papers.

    • Amber says:

      I think it was 4 months later when Kidman was almost 3 months pregnant, that Cruise changed his mind. Tom and Nic, Brad and Jennifer (building a mega-mansion, walking red carpets, then going on a vacation and a week later splitting up) and Heidi and Seal (how many kids and vow renewals did they have?) are my go to examples to not believe any couple’s comments or displays when it comes to their relationships.

      I agree with some of the other comments, many people do renewals for various reasons, a milestone anniversary, they want their kids to be there and participate, they couldn’t afford to have the wedding they wanted the first time or whatever. But for celebrities it always looks like a last effort. It seems like they do it strictly, to have a party, and b/c they need to be reminded of the vows, like they’re recommitting. Which is cool, except who needs to recommit after a year or two? Or in Heidi and Seal’s case, recommit every year or two.

  24. MG says:

    Headed for divorce. That’s sad.

  25. Helvetica says:

    There have been rumors for awhile now that she is a massive cheat and has been sleeping around for awhile.

    I agree that the end is probably near, regardless of the vow renewal or not.

    She does not look 28 at all. She looks 24 years old.

    Good luck to them either way, together or not.

  26. GeeMoney says:

    Please… he cheats on her like crazy and the rumors about her and DiCaprio sleeping together are at an all time high. This marriage won’t make it… and it’s too bad, because they are cute together.

  27. Littlewood says:

    So this little article comes out after the “Miranda is the highest paid woman in H’wood” one hours before Forbes put her on number 7 on their highest paid models list and the “Flynn couldn’t come because it will disrupt his schedule” even though they took him to Cancun for 3 days. This woman’s PR is the hardest working in H’wood, I’m mean announcing a vows renewal after months of separation, cheating and divorce rumors just in time for her yearly Aussie visit right when people are starting to wonder why her husband didn’t join her and was spotted lunching with a leggy blonde, it all just sounds really planned out and desperate. Instead of the divorce rumors dying down I actually have no doubt left that this relationship is over and now it’s all just for show. They even walked the GG carpet together but weren’t actually invited to the ceremony (as confirmed by her stylist)

  28. Christina says:

    Translate: Miranda’s attempt to upgrade failed, so she’s trying to milk as much publicity out of this ‘marriage’ as possible. I’m willing to be their lawyers are already drawing up the divorce papers.

  29. aston martin says:

    She’s a bitch to work with? Wow, that is juicy! All I personally think when I look at her face is a neon sign flashing “VACANCY”.

  30. Boromir's Bytch says:

    Is she going to wear the Victoria’s Secret bridal line to her vow renewal? Is that why they picked her to model it this year? Yeah, I can see her walking down the aisle with “I Do” emblazoned on her butt.

    • Littlewood says:

      Well you have to hand it to VS, they haven’t used her in commercials for ages but now with all the talk of her marriage falling apart, they put her (and not other happily married Angels, Doutzen Kroes for example) in the bridal wear knowing it would generate a lot of publicity. Shame that she herself doesn’t seem to understand that it doesn’t put her in a good light. But with all the publicity her team seems to put out she seems to be suffering of delusions of grandeur, that’s going to bite her in the ass.

  31. JL says:

    Not on the guest list so this totally doesn’t affet me in anyway.

    To me that’s right up there with “our great sex life”, “we’re sooo in Luv” blah blah,

    If you are in love, committed to each other so forth and so on it will be obvious without all that.

  32. Timber says:

    She looks like a bug. I don’t understand her appeal at all.

  33. Noinin says:

    I think she is pretty in a weird way, but I totally dislike her. I hate the way she uses her cute son only for photo-ops and goes on and on about being a hands-on mom when she clearly can’t because she’s too busy doing absolutely everything she can to be everywhere in the medias. I think Orlando Bloom is just a shadow of his former self since he married her and it’s sad.

  34. MisJes says:

    There were many other models at the David Jones Fashion Show, it’s just that Miranda (as our top-earning/most famous export) was the biggest get. And, she’s the face of the brand.

    I agree with commenters who say that they lose interest with Miranda when she opens her mouth – there is a hair product commercial on television here in Australia right now, which features Miranda tossing and twirling her hair around (and she looks pretty) – but she has a speaking part. And she just sounds and looks as deep as a puddle. It’s cringe worthy.

  35. the original bellaluna says:

    That would be “fornicating with the help” thankyouverymuch! ;)

  36. Lucky Charm says:

    My parents renewed their vows for their 25th anniversary. They sent invitations and had a big reception afterwards. They had a big church wedding & reception the first time, too, but I don’t think anyone thought it was ridiculous for them to do it again. That was almost 25 years ago (wow, how time flies!) and they are still happily together.

    • Littlewood says:

      There is a difference between a 25th wedding anniversary with two people that love and support each other and a 3rd wedding anniversary of two people that spend most of there time apart and are cheating on each other. This is pure PR bollocks that’s it, I sincerely doubt there is going to be any vows renewal. She cares for the PR Bloom generates and nothing else, he and their son haven’t been seen in weeks and she talks about their son in every interview she does…

  37. dominique says:

    I remember watching an interview with Miranda where they asked what attracted her to Orlando and she said she admired his “persistence”. I know that happens with a lot relationships (where the woman isn’t initially into the man as much as he’s into it)and it doesn’t mean they don’t work out, but maybe she never really was that into it.

  38. lisa2 says:

    I always thought Vow Renewals should be for the Big Milestones years; 20, 25, 30 or 50. Something special.

  39. Cody says:

    Miranda needs to talk to Heidi Klum about renewing your wedding vows every year and then divorce.

  40. aclama says:

    Agh, I’m sick of her. She’s just so boring.
