After nine years of marriage and a courtship that started way back when they were teenagers, celeb couple Robin Thicke and Paula Patton have suddenly decided to call it quits. Caroline Manzo, former cast member of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and soon-to-be star of Manzo'd With Children, is finding the shocking news difficult to swallow.

Caroline took to her Twitter to share her heartbreak over the couple's unexpected split.

"Paula Patton & Robin Thicke's marriage on the rocks - this makes me sad. They've been together forever," a melancholy Caroline wrote.

Indeed, noted actress Paula and her pop-star hubby Robin, most famous for his huge summer hit "Blurred Lines" and most infamous for being the target of an unfortunate twerking attack by Miley Cyrus, really have been together forever, as far as Hollywood relationships are concerned. So, it's disheartening to learn that the exception to the rule has become the rule.

According to CNN, the decision to split is 100 percent mutual.

In a join statement released by the couple, they explained, "We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time."

The pair has one child together, son Julian Fuego, born in 2010.

Caroline's own marriage was reportedly on the rocks just last year, although these days, Caroline and Al seem to be stronger than ever. Still, we can see why the news would make Caroline sad.
