• Divorcing: Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and writer Helen Thorpe, his wife of 10 years. The couple broke the news Tuesday in a surprisingly straight-forward joint statement, which explained that the decision was “mutual and amicable,” denied the existence of any extra-marital affairs, said they had gone to counseling and that the timing had nothing to do with the recent shootings. “You can continue to expect to see both of us out in the community – sometimes together, sometimes solo,” read the statement. “Please feel free to include both of us in social gatherings as we will not find it awkward.” The couple has a 10 year-old son.

• Summer love: Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy. The country singer, 22, and RFK’s grandson, 18, were spotted kissing, holding hands and getting touchy-feely at his family’s compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts this week, the New York Post reports. So far, no official confirmation of a romance.
