NEW YORK, NY, March 01, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Everyone has heard of "friends with benefits" - the arrangement by which good friends share sexual favors - but Kim Kardashian has taken the concept to a much higher level, according to RomanceBeat.com, the website that sees a romantic angle in most celebrity news stories.
RomanceBeat.com writer Ellie Reeve reports that "Many of us have "platonic" heterosexual male friends and wonder at one point or another if this relationship could have a romantic future. Though we're not aware of any statistics on how often this happens, we guess not more than 50% of the time. It seems that a good chunk of time and experience has to pass when you and your friend aren't seeing each other. Kim sure seems to have a new perspective, including one on marriage. Part of this change could be the fact that she is still not divorced from her short and unhappy marriage to Kris Humphries.
"She now seems to have a more liberal view of living together without marriage. Fans of "Keeping Up with Kardashians" know that Kourtney, Kim's older sister, has two children with her boyfriend Scott Disick. Kim reveals in an upcoming issue of Cosmopolitan magazine that she was judgmental about the relationship and felt that the two should marry for the sake of the kids. She no longer feels that way. Isn't it great to see what a best friend can do?" asks Ms. Reeve.
RomanceBeat also reports on upcoming Downton Abbey plot twists in a story titled, "Downton Abbey Catches Up to Downton Sixbey." Ms. Reeve cites The Sun newspaper in Britain as one source for her story that writers of the popular series are "searching for its first black character for Season 4, Jack Rossó'a real man,' who is handsome, has charm and charisma and can sing brilliantly." Ms. Reeve acknowledges that "DA writer Julian Fellowes needs to be historically believable but he might want to watch Jimmy Fallon's hysterical parody of the series 'Downton Sixbey' for inspiration on how to make it work and how he can get laughs at the same time."

Also on RomanceBeat.com is a report Michelle Williams and Jason Segel have officially split. Citing US Weekly as the source, the website says the reason for the breakup is location. Williams lives in New York, with her daughter, while Segel is in Los Angeles. Writer Melanie Love says "the question we all have is what he is going to name the movie he writes based on this! Or more importantly....can long distance relationships work, even in Hollywood?!"
