New York Housewives star Bethenny Frankel, 42, and husband Jason Hoppy are separating; they married in 2010 and had a daughter   the same year (see Bethenny Getting Married and Bethenny Ever After). The chef/author/entrepreneur said that she was sad but that it was "the best choice for our family."

Since gaining notability on Bravo's The Real Housewives of New York City, Frankel has produced four books and a fitness video, founded Skinnygirl cocktail, shapewear, and nutritional-supplement lines, and launched a talk show, Bethenny. She'll be fine.

He'll be fine

Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood, 65, tied the knot with theater producer Sally Humphreys, 34, in a private ceremony in London on Friday, according to the U.K.'s Sun. They'd announced their engagement in October. She's his third. The rocker wore pink socks and a navy suit, and the bride wore her mother's wedding dress.

Baggins of cash

Bilbo Baggins is running circles around some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey took in $36.7 million to remain No. 1 for a second weekend, easily beating a rush of holiday newcomers. The Warner Bros. release raised its domestic total to $149.9 million after 10 days and added $91 million overseas to bring its international total to $284 million and its worldwide haul to $434 million.

Tom Cruise's action thriller Jack Reacher debuted at No. 2 with a modest $15.6 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. At No. 3 with $12 million was Judd Apatow's marital comedy This Is 40. Paramount's The Guilt Trip, with Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand, was No. 6 with $5.4 million over the weekend and $7.4 million since opening Wednesday. In narrower release, Paramount's Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away was No. 11 with $2.1 million. In limited release, Kathryn Bigelow's bin Laden manhunt saga Zero Dark Thirty drew $410,000 in just five theaters, averaging a huge $82,000 apiece.
