The idea enthusiastic want to sort of put your sad or bad news out there and other noise going on. Reporter: Interesting to hear what the negotiations would be in terms of when you announce a split because you could have been separated for quite a while but having to appear to the public that you are still together. It happens all the time. I can attest to it as therapist with celebrity in my office and it's complicating for the break up because emotionally you are done and then you have to appear to not be done sat you can time it just right and publicist it's tough. Melanie and Antonio were together for almost 20 years. Last time in public was March holding hand in photograph together. Haven't seen them together since thechbility he was in Cannes in may and she was ab sechbility off the radar for whale where j.lo and Casper were together at the billboard music award. Out and about. Couple really in the public eye. Reporter: Marriage is already very tough if not in the been eye. What does it take to make a celebrity marriage work. It takes the same thing as it takes for a regular marriage except even more so. That connection is key nurturing the relation and celebrity face difficulty that most people don't they have to be on set. They have to be a part. They have more opportunity than anyone can possibly imagine when it comes to infidelity. Reporter: Okay let's talk about robin Thicke and Paula Patton. Announce their break up. But he is really trying to woo her back. Do you think this is a relationship that ultimately will mend itself. They have been together since high school. Fans are devastated when announce the split in fechbility sources said it was really more Paula decision than robin. He has been dead kitting songs tkitting songs to her in concert. Get her back latest single debut in may. His most recent album called Paul a dedicated to her so really there's this campaign to sort of at least get her attention if not get her back. Reporter: Isn't that romantic. I have to say I'm doesn't do the dramatic jess take your are em. Romantic and lovely you know to me writing a song sing ago song the flowers the jewelry any of that stuff is superficial when clearly there's a problem within the relationship. A lot of rumors about him acting out sexually with other women. Address the emotional issue. Get yourself into therapy if you are acting out sexually with people and you need a 12 step program address it. Let's say he write as song she buys it. Okay let's get back in a relationship nothing has changed in order for the relation to be different he needs therapy. Reporter: Okay let's talk about gwynneth paltrow and Chris martin. The conscious uncoupling I still think people are talking about that term and whether, does it actually mean and does it signal this is a couple that really knows how to brick up nicely. I think it really sort of I think it really sort of, new term when you hear the consciously uncoupling when you see them still together at this sort of modern divorce, not surprisesurprising people but shouldn't sprays is still very non-traditional from gwynneth. Spent mother's day together. They have been together. Living together. They have been together on the weekend. Went out together at dinner I think it's really sort of modern divorce and they said when they split they would still be a family but not romantic couple. Reporter: Does it make you smile. I think it's fantastic. Great for the public to have a role model what it looks like to be very conscious about how you undo your marriage and putting the children first and treating each other with respect and kindness. Everyone who break up do that. Reporter: Thank you very much for being here.
