Ashton Kutcher is “living in the bubble” & using Demi as a human shield


Last week, Ashton Kutcher stepped in a big pile of controversy when he tweeted his support for now-fired Joe Paterno, the coach at Penn State who chose bureaucracy over the well-being of sexually abused children. Ashton later deleted his tweets of support and offered a Twitter apology, and then he wrote a lengthy, whine-filled rant about why he initially supported Paterno, basically saying that at the time he hadn’t heard anything about the Penn State scandal. Some of you pointed out that in his apologies and whines, he hadn’t mentioned or made reference to his wife whatsoever, especially when he was discussing his “home”. Where is he even living now? God knows. But Page Six claims that Demi was one of the reasons for the Twitter-controversy – because Ashton has been “living in the bubble” with work, and all of his free time is spent boning club girls and lying to his wife trying to fix his marriage.

Ashton Kutcher tripped up on Twitter over the Joe Paterno firing because he was “in a bubble” trying to save his marriage to Demi Moore and filming ’round the clock, say friends.

The “Two and a Half Men” star made himself a laughingstock when he tweeted his outrage over Penn State’s firing of the legendary football coach — only learning from the furious response from his followers that Paterno had been axed over a child sexual-assault scandal involving a former assistant coach.

An embarrassed Kutcher deleted the original tweet, admitted he hadn’t known the story behind Paterno’s departure, and turned control of his feed over to his production company.

A source close to Ashton explained, “He’s been in a bubble. He works 12-hour days, is trying to save his marriage and is involved in the management of close to a dozen Internet companies, so he didn’t really know what he had done until it was too late. He feels terrible.”

Meanwhile, Kutcher, 33, and Moore are carefully working through their problems in a bid to save their marriage following claims he romped with 23-year-old blonde Sara Leal in San Diego on his and Moore’s sixth wedding anniversary in August.

A friend told us, “They both want to work things out. They are doing a lot of talking and Kabbalah counseling. Despite all that has happened, when it comes down to it, they both really love each other.”

Moore looks thin and gaunt in recent pictures. The source told us, “It has been a painful time, but she’s holding up. While there are problems, they both want to fix things. She and Ashton need each other.”

Moore, who turned 49 yesterday, looked pale as she was photographed leaving a nail salon in West Hollywood on Thursday. But she was still wearing her wedding ring and engagement ring. Reps for Kutcher and Moore didn’t get back to us last night.

Do you think Ashton and Demi “need” each other? I think that in Demi’s mind, she does “need” Ashton. Like, she can’t even think of her life without him, and she doesn’t want to lose him. And that’s sad, because she could have an awesome life without him. But does Ashton “need” Demi? I personally think he’s using Demi as a human shield to deflect from his douche. He can say to the world, “I’m not so bad, because my wife is in the process of forgiving me.” It’s gross.

    I’ve always thought of Demi as a strong, driven, and independent woman. That’s probably a result of her PR and Acting image. Anymore, I don’t know what to think of her. There’s an insecurity of some kind behind that fascade.

    As for Ashton, I can’t think of a single reason to take notice of him what so ever.

  2. lisa says:

    I saw a bad picture of her on x17 (ugh) and she looked bad. I have not seen her and Ashton together in a long while. Despite the wearing of wedding rings. Were they together on her birthday, or when he made the twitter mistake.

    Talk is cheap. You can spout off about being a strong woman, but when the proof of your life doesn’t mirror that. There is nothing wrong with loving your man or forgiving him, but Demi is on some level I don’t understand at all. She and Ashton have been together for 6 or so years. If it is over let it be over and move on. She has a lot of life left to live. Why do it with the wrong person.

  3. poopie says:

    If i were Demi i would cast this scumbag off like poop on the bottom of my shoe. and you know what ASSHAT? loads of people work LONNNGG hours, take care of family and the household AND are able to keep up with current events. that is NO excuse. working 12 hr days like he’s CONSTANTLY working; living in a million dollar trailer onsite and being waited on and pampered is not exactly WORKING 12 HR DAYS! GO AWAY!! and get rid of those HATS !

  4. Turtle Dove says:

    …so it’s Demi and work’s fault that he sent that uninformed tweet?

  5. Ann says:

    Well, color me shocked! A man who has unprotected sex outside of his primary relationship is stupid! Who’d have thunk?

  6. The Original Mia says:

    Douchebag is a douchebag for using his wife as a shield against his stupidity. He had to be living in a damn cave to not know about the Penn State scandal. There’s nothing he can say to convince me that someone on that set didn’t mention to the big football fan about what was happening at Penn State.

  7. Cathy says:

    Demi needs to kick that used up douche bag to the curb, put a little meat back on her to skinny body and go find herself a good man who’s more her age.

  8. lucy2 says:

    He always blames someone or something for his (many) mistakes – the media, twitter, etc. I guess today’s blame falls on his “hard work and long hours”. Whatever. Jerk.

  9. brin says:

    A marriage should make a couple stronger not weaker. They both look pathetic.

  10. Esmom says:

    This is veering off topic a bit but Ashton’s tweet is just another reason why I’m getting so irritated in general with people’s inclination to tweet or update their facebook status (or worse just mindlessly re-post something they got from someone) a million times a day, regardless of how ill-informed their take on a topic may be.

    I guess it’s sheer narcissism that drives a lot of people, like Ashton, to believe we care about what they think.

    Some people I know weigh in on just about everything — from politics to their kids poops — and oftentimes it’s just way more than I need to know. I want to scream that they are spending way too much time talking about their lives — trying so damn hard to demonstrate to the world how smart or how cool they are — and not enough time actually living it.

    Maybe I’m just not made for this techno-driven day and age (granted I am commenting on a blog) :)

  11. ol cranky says:

    interesting, he’s so busy “in a bubble” because he works so hard for 12 hours/day and is spending the rest of his time working on his marriage that it makes you wonder how he had the time to tweet about Joe Pa.

  12. Becky says:

    I saw those recent pics of Demi leaving the nail salon-she looked ill and frighteningly thin. I think she’s depressed and not eating or has reverted back to eating disordered habits in order to deal with the stress in her life. It’s sad. I hope for her sake she recognizes that she has a problem and is getting some counseling. She needs to get rid of Ashton.

    BTW, I totally agree with Esmom re: Facebook. It’s such a forum for narcissism. It’s disturbing to me that there are many middle aged people out there(who should be past that sort of thing by now) that feel the need to frequently broadcast minutae about their lives.

  13. Franny says:

    whats the point of wearing a suit when you don’t shave, wear a beanie, and your tie is flipped the wrong way. might as well have shown up in sweatpants.

  14. Hautie says:

    I bet money that CBS, his boss (Lorre) and the production company went ballistic on Kutcher.

    The last thing they needed was another asshole purposely screwing up in public. With the media there to document it.

    Then he has Demi desperate to stay married. So he has won half the battle, to clean up this PR nightmare.

  15. gab says:

    @esmom, I agree with everything you said. I feel the same way!

  16. Maritza says:

    Let’s see how he feels when she turns 50. He’s not going to change, he is always going to stray and there will always be some bimbo who will tattle tale on him. He probably stays with her because he feels sorry for her.

  17. bluhare says:

    So why is it all Demi’s “fault” they’re still married? CA is no fault divorce, right? So he could file on his own; he doesn’t need her to be on board.

    So he’s at work 12 hours per day. Aren’t a lot of those 12 hours per day spent in his gargantuan trailer where he probably has access to . . oh . . . a computer? And maybe a newspaper? So the 12 hours a day thing doesn’t cut it.

  18. autumndaze says:

    Does he not understand the concept of accepting personal responsibility?
    I swear, there are over a dozen stated reasons from working at 2 1/2 men to the quality of the twitter feed, as to why he acts with room temperature IQ, and none of them have to do with him.

    Gah! He infuriates me. Demi needs to grow a pair and get on with life–she has some seriously debilitating insecurities….
    I guess they have that in common.

  19. Criss says:

    You don’t see a lot of A list celebs running to tweet, they run from it.

  20. You don't say says:

    I will preface by saying I have no idea what is really going on in this relationship (marriage is clearly not what they are involved in as she is doing all the compromising). But from the looks of Moore, not much good. I won’t even call him a man-child, he is just a child and his wife is becoming his enabler. What is it about him that makes her stay? It is not like there are children involved (her’s are close to grown), so that is not an excuse.

    I will say again, she needs to get some self respect, start thinking about herself and her children, grow a pair (cause he sure doesn’t have any) and kick this dude to the curb!!!

  21. iseepinkelefants says:

    I hate both of them. Demi because if it weren’t for her this douche would have faded into his deserved obscurity a long time ago. And Ashton because he’s always been that weaselly idiotic douche Kelso to me. I wish he would just f-off already.

  22. cr says:

    The difference in Demi’s looks from the top photo to the one on the x17 site is pretty frightening. She looks so unhealthy now.

  23. Alix says:

    A good part of his working hours is spent in his fancy on-set trailer, which I’m betting contains at least one TV! You know what else? I’ll bet people on the set talk about stuff like current events! Sheesh, it’s not like he’s on location in the Congo or somethin’…

  24. Lee says:

    Why would a woman who wants to appear younger than her age even BE with a man that much younger? It means the conversation of her age always comes up, thereby highlighting her actual age, and worse, it’s always noted she’s OLDER. The irony of this obviously is escaping her. And now we’re into the fooling-around-with-younger-women stage of this scenario, and we’ve reached the point when a beautiful woman is considered old(er) and pathetic. Why is she doing this to herself? It’s so unnecessary…

  25. lola lola says:

    I hope they work it out. Marriage is hard. Working on it is what makes it last. Good luck to them both.

  26. Lady_Luck says:

    I can’t understand what Demi sees in this silly boy. He is a bit of a bore and really should reflect on his own morality and conscious before making running comentaries on others. He is living in a ‘holier than thou’ bubble and has some very odd concepts of life and politics in general.

  27. misstrishm says:

    These two need to just call it a day. I would love to be Demi skinny but I wouldn’t want it at the expense of someone else’s betrayal.

  28. pwal says:

    Again, I have to reiterate my theory that Demi’s hedging has something to do with her deceased mom.

    And as for this purported excuse that Kutcher was isolated from what was going on – please. Any reasonable person who was greeted with news of someone, who was considered an institution, getting fired would look around and find out why. That’s just basic common sense.

  29. Meanchick says:

    He loves playing the victim doesn’t he?

  30. kar says:

    KARMA sucks…sounds like Mr. All that and a bag of chips” is getting what he deserves! Really? A liar and a cheater is running the “Real Men dont” campaign? What a loser!

  31. Jover says:

    I agree esmom and becky Facebook has become a sophisticated way to ultimately waste a lot of time amplifying the minutiea (sic) of life rather than living. Thank God our forbears didn’t have facebook; they would have been diverted from building our country, and if this technology existed in SHakespeare’s day we would know all about his doublet and hose and not have Macbeth, Hamlet etc. As for these two, nothing is sadder than desperately trying to stay relevant when the talent isn’t there to do it naturally.

  32. I RUN NEW YORK says:

    I feel so bad for Demi. She has no self esteem and thinks she can’t do any better than a man that cheats and disrespects her. SMH

  33. judyjudy says:

    That stupid hat tells me everything I need to know about this person.

  34. lahela says:

    I believe that Ashton actually did know the real reason why Joe was fired, but he was too much of an idiot to realize the severity of the situation, so he went into a rant about how bad it was that he was fired. Think about it….the guy is an idiot. It makes sense.

  35. Twez says:

    They better work out their problems quickly, before Demi is able to star in The Karen Carpenter Story.

  36. CeeCee says:

    the space left behind on Two and a Half men filled by Ashton is cursed. His life is turning to shit like Charlies Sheens, just faster and harder.

  37. Green_Eyes says:

    Wow! I remember in the 80′s & 90′s Demi was her own woman. She always looked healthy, stunning, and seemed to be strong, while being smart & beautiful. I can’t believe THAT Demi fell into the Hollywood vanity game w/ all the surgery..but she did… So it shouldn’t surprise me how she is letting this obviously toxic relationship eat away at her literally. Wish the old Demi would come and knock some sense into this one! She didn’t get this bad over Bruce, the man she had 2 children w/.. Yet this douche Kutcher who is nothing of a man..but more an over grown kid..she is an emotional mess? Makes me wonder if this Demi is so afraid of growing old that in her mind having a younger ‘man’ validates her ‘youthfulness’ in her mind.

    News for you Demi…he makes you look older, not younger! It’s not the age of a person, it’s how they truly feel and their happiness that shines thru! I’m married to a man that looks in noway his 65 yrs..but he didn’t look it when we got married 16 yrs ago. I’m 19 yrs his junior…I don’t look 46, I look younger:). I looked older when I was w/ my ex-spouse who was my age..we are friends now..but as spouses…that relationship was toxic!

  38. Lauren says:

    I think Ashton has been cheating long before his BlondBimbo Hottub party. He just diddled the wrong chick who wanted to extort money from him. Demi is embarrassed, but will cling to Ashton forever..her ego needs him.

  39. Esmom says:

    @lahela, re: “I believe that Ashton actually did know the real reason why Joe was fired, but he was too much of an idiot to realize the severity of the situation, so he went into a rant about how bad it was that he was fired. ”

    Yes I totally agree. Same reason why the Penn State kids who rioted and then got called out on their stupidity scrambled to pull together a candlelight vigil. The initial response is always the most telling, no?

    He is turning her into a desperate, old woman. And he is an eternal jackass.
