justin_cameron_split.jpgThe reported Justin Timberlake-Cameron Diaz split — the first big one of 2007 — has celebrity media outlets in a tizzy. You know who else is in a tizzy? E! gossipist Michael Malkin, who appears to’ve been counting down the minutes since Britney dropped K-Fed to write this:

Perhaps Timberlake and Diaz are the latest victims of E!’s Love Ride curse. If Timberlake and Diaz are over, that means three of the eight couples featured in the new series have gone kaput. With Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock along with Britney Spears and Kevin Federline over, who’s left to worry about the curse? Brangelina, TomKat, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, and Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick.

Three of eight, huh? That’s not exactly Madden Curse territory.
