Well, friendship and respect, that's something. Still, it seemed like Joe and Blanda were in it for the long haul. A source told the E! Online, "It was mutual. They both wanted to do new things. Joe wants to be single right now and they thought it was better if they are just friends."
Kind of sounds like when the Jonas Brothers broke up and wanted to do new things? Just sayin'.
What's next for Joe, besides living the single life for a bit? He's cooking up a new show – literally – telling VH1 recently, "I'm a foodie so I've been able to interview of a bunch of my favorite chefs and a couple other guys from the West Coast. It's been really rad."
He added, "The last year there's been a lot of different changes, so I've been able to have a lot of time for myself and do different things - things that I enjoy doing, like DJ-ing, or starting a cooking show, or getting a house. Getting things like that started. That's been a lot of fun." He also said he's "focusing on music, acting and writing."
So, basically, doing a little bit of everything then?
