Blake Lively is Single

Perhaps as a reward for finally launching a mobile site, or just being handsome in general, the Good Lord has finally seen fit to break up Blake Lively and Penn Badgley. Granted, he did it back in September and waited until now to tell me, I’m not about to look a gift horse in anything but the breasts. Us Weekly reports:

“They’re professionals,” an insider tells Us Weekly. “They’re still good friends and hang out on the set.”
The source says that the duo — who met as preteen actors in L.A. — “kept this news to themselves for a while.”
Even those closest to the twosome may be shocked to hear the news.
“Nobody on set had any idea,” says the insider. “They’re really just private.”

While my first and almost immediate reaction was, “I said, what what? In the butt,” a true gentlemen allows a lady time to heal before calling on her as a suitor. Which is why I’ll be romantically hiding in her linen closet until the time is right. You have to be sensitive to a woman’s feelings. *puts on ski mask*
