Martha Madison posted to social media on the double-edged sword that is celebrity life.

Hollywood is abuzz this week with news that Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt after a 12-year relationship, during the last two of which they were married.

Madison had something to say about the split, as she lives nearby the couple. Being a celebrity isn’t all glamor and excitement. There are downsides, one of which, especially in Los Angeles, is the incessant presence of paparazzi. One picture of an in-demand celebrity can go for hundreds of thousands of dollars, so photographers will often go to great lengths to get them. This includes flying over celebrity homes in helicopters, which Madison lamented in a tweet.

In the many backstage shake-ups at “Days” over the last few months, Madison and on-screen beau Brandon Beemer were let go from the NBC sudser. In a shocking twist, Days rehired Madison and Beemer shortly thereafter.. As such, though, Belle and Shawn just left Salem for Hong Kong. Fans of the Salem supercouple can expect to see them back on screen in the future.
