Their affair was a real 'Grind'



Tbdgrindhouse040407 The New York Post’s Page Six reported last April that Grindhouse co-director Robert Rodriguez was having an affair with his leading lady, Rose McGowan. What’s becoming apparent now is that production of the “double feature” with Quentin Tarantino came to a halt when Rodriguez’s wife of 16 years, Elizabeth Avellan, found out about his infidelity. “It was the worst-kept secret on the set. They were going off to his trailer, having meals together,” a source said. Said another spy: “When Elizabeth found out, there was an eruption of emotions — an emotional volcano.” They are now separated (and Rodriguez is still seeing McGowan), but will continue raising their kids together and keep their partnership in Troublemaker Studios. How appropriate. But what do you expect when a couple names their kids Rebel, Rocket, Rogue, Racer and Rhiannon? [Photo: Getty Images]
