Don't believe the Internet buzz about a possible Madonna-Guy Ritchie
reconciliation. Yes, the superstar's ex-hubby has been seen coming and
going from Madonna's New York apartment, but it's not about romance.
Madonna and Ritchie are keen on maintaining a friendly relationship
both for their children's sake -- and possibly for a few joint film
projects. Despite the dismal failure of previous movies the two have

''she and Guy could still make a terrific film, if they find the right

that the recession had forced many stars to cut back. He cited Madonna
even having to fire ''one of her assistants. ... Our thoughts are with
you, Guy Ritchie."
A Madonna pal reports she said, ''Come on. He's a comedian. We're public people. We're fair game ... and it was funny.''
