Celebrities Who Upgraded or Downgraded Their Relationships

You know that sensation when you find out that your favorite celebrity has broken up with so-and-so and moved on to what’s-his-face and you’re like “omigod, she’s dating who!?” because it's surprisingly worse or ridiculously better than the last guy...?

These are the celebs who got out of one high-profile relationship and made a serious UPGRADE or DOWNGRADE in their next relationship.


George Clooney: George Clooney was with Elisabetta Canalis for several years. She is stunning, European and way too young for Mr. Clooney. So perfect. Now Clooney is dating Stacy Keibler, an ex-pro wrestler who used to parade around the wrestling ring with the stage name, “Miss Handcock.” DOWNGRADE


Blake Lively: Blake Lively was in a long term relationship with her Gossip Girl co-star Penn Badgley for several years. Since their break-up she’s gone on to date Leo Dicaprio and Ryan Reynolds. In that order (not at the same time, ya pervs). From a TV actor to a movie star, I’m sorry, two movie stars, that’s an UPGRADE.


Kristen Stewart: Before getting together with her Twilight co-star, Kristen Stewart was dating some unknown actor named Michael Angorano for several years. She then dumped his a-s and moved onto the international heartthrob Robert Pattinson. UPGRADE.


Jennifer Aniston: Jennifer Aniston has gone from being married to one of the most handsome men worldwide (Brad Pitt) to dating someone whose last night we can't pronounce (Justin Theroux). While she did date around after the split from Brad, none of those other guys count. So from Pitt to Theroux…DOWNGRADE.


Jake Gyllenhaal: Witherspoon and Gyllenhaal dated for two years and while they never seemed totally perfect for each other, they did make one super attractive couple. Besides, who doesn’t like it when two movie stars date each other? It’s proof that God exists, or something. After they split, Gyllenhaal started dating Taylor Swift. Besides the fact that is screamed, “rebound” is was also a DOWNGRADE.


LeAnn Rimes: Before LeAnn Rimes cheated on her husband with God’s-gift-to-bone-structure aka Eddie Cibrian, she was married to a back-up dancer turned chef named Dean Sheremet. Forget about the fact that Eddie isn’t really that famous, looking into his face is the same thing as hearing a choir of baby angels singing. UPGRADE


Holly Madison: After being the premiere girlfriend to Hugh Hefner for too many years, dating anyone would be an upgrade. She could date a corpse and it would be an upgrade. After Hugh, Holly started dating the “magician” Criss Angel, and while anyone else dating a man whose last name is Angel would be a downgrade, in this situation it’s an UPGRADE.
