Hulk Hogan’s Ex Linda Is Engaged!

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes divorce and aims to disparage.  So is the story of Hulk and Linda Hogan who were married for 24 years, brought 2 kids into the world (Brooke and Nick) and then everything came to a screeching halt in 2007. In the short 3 years since their divorce, Hulk got engaged to a girl who looks disturbingly like his daughter and not be outdone, Linda has made sure she wins this battle.

To do that, she got engaged to her son’s friend Charlie Hill, who is a mere 21 years old! Linda will be 52 in August. If that seems ridiculous, wait, it gets better. The couple will get married on her boat called The Alimony.  The 21 year old is the epitome of absurdity with bleach blond hair, orange tan and essentially a beach bum. Linda is obviously trying to make a point that she’s still got it, but unfortunately no one seems to now what it is or even if there’s a cure for it.

Brooke and Nick (the offspring) went to school with Charlie and he was a grade below Brooke. I’ll let you re-read that last sentence so that you can soak it in. He is younger than her offspring. Brooke was quoted as saying, “I personally don’t like it at all or condone it, but she’s my mom, so I have to show her support. I went to school with him. He was a grade under me. Me and Nick know him well.”   It’s no surprise that Brooke is supporting her Mom because she’s still paying for Brooke’s struggling music career since Brooke is under the impression that the TV show had nothing to do with album sales and that people actually liked what they were hearing.   Well played, Brookey. Well played.

We can’t WAIT for the Thanksgiving photos!

Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz Announce Wedding Plans

Swizz Beatz in a very open interview to OK Magazine recently dispelled rumors that the couple is getting married this weekend, but says that it’s coming and coming pretty fast. As for wedding planning, Swizz makes sure that he’s not going to just “show up”, but that he’s going to have a big hand in planning the festivities.

“Yeah, you know, I’m a planner! I like getting into the detail of things. I’m inspired by fashion, I’m inspired by art, I’m inspired by architectural things so [I like] being involved with the wedding. I’m not the person who sits back and goes, okay, well I’ll just show up. I’m actually spearheading certain plans but it’s a nice blend, a nice partnership.”

While this may have some women swooning over how he’s such a “perfect” guy, let’s not lose sight of his wife and kids that he kicked to the curb to be with Alicia. No one is perfect, but let’s not get caught up in romance. I’m happy for them, but it seems a little too quick to be a fairy tale story. We all love happy endings, but one very positive thing is that he’s keeping the kids at bay and doing his best to keep the environment positive around the kids from both women at all times. Congratulations, but slow the train for your own mental health.

Top 20 Funniest Divorce Cakes

Well, I’ve done ugliest wedding cakes, worst wedding photos, sluttiest wedding dresses and many more that everyone loves. But I totally missed the boat until the wonderful ladies at Weddings Are a Girl’s Best Friend showed a couple examples of Divorce Cakes.  I didn’t even know these existed and yet here they are in all of their hilarity. So I went online and found my 20 favorites and here they are..

The Top 20 Divorce Cakes


#20 – Free At Last
Nothing crazy unusual like the other cakes on this list but considering what must have gone into the ball and chain here, I’d be interested in knowing whether that’s a big hunk of frosting or if it’s cake. And if it’s cake, how did they get it round like that? Or is something more sinister…


#19 – Dumbass.
This one makes me giggle. I can totally see this woman in the process of making this cake. “FLOUR!  SUGAR! EGG! BLOOD!”

Picture obtained from


#18 – Work For Food
I’m sure we’ll see more of these in the list, but the “She’s taking half of everything I own” theme is definitely going to crop up here and there.

#17 – Have a Beer
This one wasn’t as inventive as the others, but it’s the best you can expect a guy to do with that photo rice paper and it’s chuckle worthy.

#16 – The Split
This was kind of strange to see that someone went to the trouble to create a nice looking wedding cake and then split it. It makes it one of the more depressing cakes on the list. It almost looks like the wedding was called off and the cake was altered this way which adds some ominous factor to it.

#15 – Headless Groom
This was a different spin that shows the bride’s true feelings, but still remaining calm in its adversity. I, the, he, and then. Ok. I give up. Morbid.

14 – Just Plain Murder
Ok, so one theme you will see with these cakes is women causing harm to men and not the other way around. Keeps the theme strongly and smartly and viciously and gruesomely and funnily-ier.

#13 – Showdown
This photo has been seen everywhere on the web and is very popular. I like the concept and that no one is the winner here.  Yet. But the shotgun definitely has more radial damage, so he’s got the advantage here of walking away unless she’s a really good shot. She’ll be in many pieces when all is said and done unless she gets her shot off first. hmm. too much thinking…

#12 – Bride From hell
This could actually be a wedding cake, but the story behind it supposedly is that she’s the bride from hell and this cake shows off her various level of flaming evil. It’s pretty funny as the groom looks like he’s sinking into tar or lava. I like it because it’s chocolate. mmmm,

#11 – Sucker
Another head scratcher. “So long sucker” could mean a lot of things. Sucker means that the other person was tricked by something, so this cake almost gives it that raw, ‘This whole thing was planned and I don’t have to work anymore because of your stupidity” spin that just leaves me reeling. And since divorce is all about cold and heartless vengeance, then rock on! It’s not here because of inventiveness but because of the sheer cold draft it creates.

Yes folks, it’s the top 10 funniest divorce cakes. Proceed.


#10 – Queen of the Hill
I’m seeing a lot of cakes with this Queen of the Hill theme. I like this one’s added touch of his possessions along the side of the cake.

# 9 – Kicked to the Curb
This is one of the few that shows the groom kicking the bride to the curb.  I like that they applied the kicking to an entire cake layer.

#8 – I Get Half
This one takes the “she gets half of everything” to the next level showing the true end result of most divorces.

#7 – Take Out the Garbage
I love the effect of the sheet pulled up on the side.  But the detail that went into the garbage is pretty funny. Especially the rat.

#6 – Broken Heart
This one had me scratching my head also. It almost looks like a glacier that’s breaking off in pieces, but the head scratching part is that both of them are talking on their cell phones. Are they breaking up via phone or have they divorced and are now calling someone else? Hmmm. The curious nature is what got it to this list.

#5 – Another Level
This one took the whole bride and bloody groom thing to an entire new level.  Complete with multiple broken hearts.

#4 – Fertilizer
This bride not only kills the groom but also buries him in fertilizer. Or that’s probably showing that he now IS the fertilizer.

#3 – Hot tub and happy
That’s right. Forget about the bad parts of a divorce. Think about the impending benefits of being single.  But it’s funny that you actually think you’re going to keep the hot tub in the settlement. Still funny. Enjoy the cake. Oh. And is that carpet on the cake?

Found via Google Images at  http://www.blameitonthevoices.com/2009/10/divorce-cakes.html


#2 – The Ring Casket
Let me just go on record to say that this was the stiffest competition for the #1 slot ever because between this cake and the number one cake below, it’s both inventive and funny and it strays away from the typical, “I hate you and wish to disembowel you on a cake” approach. Just know that both this cake and the one below are #1 in my book. Love them both. The use of the ring box as part of a casket is ingenious.

And here we are folks!

The winner of the best divorce cake award.

#1 – Marriage License
This cake was made by CakeLady2007 (according to the URL) and the amount of work that went into writing all of this out puts it up there on the list. Even trying to envision this before making it must have been a bear. It’s so well done that it almost doesn’t even look like a cake. Congrats. You nailed it.

And there you have it. The top 20 funniest divorce cakes that I could find. All photos were obtained from Google Images and a lot of digging. You can see the URL’s I got them from in the ALT tags of each photo. Do you have ones to share that I didn’t post here? Post them!

Brad Pitt Doesn’t Love Angelina Jolie

Brad Pitt and Angelina JolieBrad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are not a happy couple. It’s not rocket science. It started as a torrid affair and blossomed into a very ugly thing. Sorry. that is my complete honest opinion. I don’t have any ill will towards either of them and they are both incredible actors who are among the best in their industry. They have also both been voted the “Sexiest Alive” this, “Most Beautiful” the other and “World’s Sexiest” whatever, multiple times over. The problem is that every time you see Brad Pitt’s face in a current photo, it screams “Someone save me.”

Angelina Jolie - Vanity Fair CoverYes, there are multiple photos of the couple happy and ecstatic, but hey, prescription drugs are available to everyone. Brad Pitt is trapped in a relationship with a very beautiful woman that he simply doesn’t love. And now he’s even more cemented in with multiple children that would prove to be very costly to run from. One of which (Shiloh) desperately wants to be a boy according to Vanity Fair’s latest interview with Jolie. Are we really making an issue of a child that is having an identity crisis in that household? How any of them have their head screwed on straight is beyond me.  This includes Brad who jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire.

In the interview, Jolie also mentions that the two of them don’t feel any need to get married because it feels like they already are.  I’m going to cry wolf here and wager a bet that Pitt doesn’t want to get married because it will cost a lot more when he finally finds his package and walks into the sunset.

Surely I can’t be the only one who sees the strain of a bad relationship gone very, very bad. Angelina puts on a good face, but she is a loon. Brad Pitt doesn’t love her.  I just can’t see it in his face. I even strive to find it.  Not there. Empty like a cave of woe.  I just think that he got his wires crossed during their affair and as he was running away, he realized that he left his heart with Jennifer Aniston.

It’s like getting to the airport late and realizing that you left your luggage at home but you can’t go back and get it.  You still go on the trip, but new clothes are very expensive and they don’t fit like the ones you had. And you can’t wait to get back to your stuff again and resume life as normal, but you’ve bought way too many clothes and all of them are non-refundable. So you just cancel your flight back and keep buying clothes.  hm. sad.

What do you think?

Celebrities That Got Engaged – June 2010 Edition

As you know, we try and find the most intriguing wedding engagements of your favorite celebrities to see if any of it is true. We try to be as good as Get Married’s Wedding Dish, but that’s a heck of a pinnacle to reach.  But we’ll try for now.

1) Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz

We covered this previously a couple of weeks ago and we said that not only was singer/pianist Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz engaged, but that she also looked pregnant to us.  We were right! I love it when we’re right. This will be Swizz Beatz second marriage. His first marriage just recently came to an end and he has a child from the relationship. The ink on his first divorce is barely dry, but if you’re going to have a fall back girl, Alicia Keys is a fantastic catch. Alicia has never been previously married, but also has never been pregnant.  We’re sure that the two will make beautiful music together both in and out of the studio, but it’s still shocking that she accepted all of the drama that will come with this. The couple will get married in France this coming July.

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert get engaged2) Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton

Country music has its collection of hot women and hot guys, but no one saw that two of their hottest stars would decide that they needed to be together.  So is the case with Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton who quietly got engaged last month in the, um,…woods.  Blake proposed to Miranda while they were in the woods in Tishomingo, Oklahoma which is where she lives.  See? I told you people actually lived in Oklahoma. In towns called Tishomingo. Either way, the couple did the dating thing behind the curtains and when they came out, they were happily engaged to be married.  No wedding date has been set and the engagement is confirmed by both parties.

The Gossip Girl’s Joanna Garcia aka Bree Buckley, gets engaged to NY Yankee outfielder Nick Swisher aka Nick Swisher. It apparently happened a month ago and they attempted to keep it quiet, but Joanna couldn’t keep a very good secret as she started going out and about with that huge rock on her finger. Garcia is obviously a hot commodity since she was previously engaged to Justin Timberlake’s business partner Trace Ayala. Not certain what happened there, but it appears that it didn’t work out for them.  Either way, Joanna and Nick have been together since September of last year and it looks like it is ON! Just like that huge rock on her wedding digit.

4) Bonnie Wright and Jamie Campbell Bower

Their real names may not be familiar to many, but their characters are. Bonnie Wright plays Ginny Weasley in the uber-popular Harry Potter movies and Jamie Campbell Bower plays Caius in the Twilight Series: New Moon film. Now that we’re on the same page, the more shocking revelation is that Bonnie Wright is a mere 19 years old. While that may be “over the hill” in a secluded Indian tribe, it’s kind of scary in the normal populated world.  But love is love and they certainly are financially stable enough to support themselves, so go on you crazy kids.  As long as you don’t have to live in your parents basement, knock yourselves out.  Their relationship began in October of 2009 and it’s believed that Jamie proposed back in April although it’s just coming to light now.  Sources close to the couple say that they are madly in love. And for those of us who are over 40, we can now roll our eyes as we recall how madly in love we would get back in our teens.  I barely remember names. Not saying that it’s not the real deal, but a step on the brakes may be appropriate to slow this bus down a little.  Stay engaged until you’re old enough to legally have a drink with the girls and then make that jump. Either way, they are engaged and on our list.

5) Valerie Bertinelli and Tom Vitale

After a long abusive and drug riddled marriage to rocker Eddie Van Halen, Valerie Bertinelli filed for divorce and walked away from over 2 and half decades of a marriage that most of America saw as a match made in idol heaven.  The world’s most well known rock guitarist married to the world’s best known TV actress (at the time).  I personally think that she is still mega hot. As we covered a couple of weeks back, after the divorce, Valerie then began a relationship with Tom Vitale who was her financial planner. That’s a good person to have on your side in a divorce of that magnitude. Tom proposed to Valerie during a trip they took to Florence Italy. He was extremely nervous even though he had no reason to be since Valerie was extremely excited and quickly accepted. No decisions have been made as to when or where the two will tie the knot, but Valerie is certainly ready for a fresh new start and Valerie says that Tom will do most of the wedding planning since he’s very into that and probably wants to keep an eye on the purse strings.

Which engagement do YOU care about the most?

Al Gore and Tipper Call It Quits

As you’ve probably already read, Al Gore and Tipper Gore are calling it quits after 40 years of marriage. The kids are grown and out of the coop and I can’t stand the site of you anymore, so off we go. What goes through people’s minds when they grow apart after 40 years of marriage? What exactly is there left to run to? Are they planning on going clubbing to whoop it up now that they’re free of each other?Or are they simply buying some silence?

At some point in your life, you hit that wall in marriages like we all do. Just trying to attain some solace or silence from one another. Especially when you hit your 60’s.  There’s nowhere to go, no one to run off with.  In case they didn’t know, to deal with it, you take what’s commonly referred to as a solo vacation.  Take a couple weeks off and hit the streets of Italy, Greece, France, etc. Relax, paint a picture, sit silently on a beach counting the crashing waves, and rejuvenate.  You don’t throw away 40 years of your life.

The email sent out to friends and family by the Gore’s (and to some with apparent big mouths who then submitted it to the website POLITICO) went something like this;

“We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate.  This is very much a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration. We ask for respect for our privacy and that of our family, and we do not intend to comment further.”

Photo obtained from POLITICO at http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0610/38001.htmlIt doesn’t take much to know that there’s something else brewing in the background. An admitted affair, total disdain, something abusive, etc. But because they’re refusing to comment is leaving them in an awkward position of allowing their pundits to make up their own stories. The Republicans simply want answers for some sort of party leverage (whatever that may be).  Maybe to show that Democrats are human too. Gasp!

The truth will eventually come out, but for now, everyone will just have to sit and wonder what in the world could have happened so devastating to disrupt a 40 year marriage. What do you think?

Valerie Bertinelli Engaged. Bye Eddie.

Valerie Bertinelli Engaged to Tom Vitale

Valerie Bertinelli and Tom Vitale

Sometimes a couple is together for so long that you simply just can’t see them with anyone else. Such is the case with Valerie Bertinelli and Eddie Van Halen who were married for over 25 years until their official divorce in 2007 even though the papers were filed two years prior in 2005.  The demise was primarily due to Eddie’s addiction to Coke which was the ultimatum set by Valerie. Eddie chose the Coke.

While Eddie wrestled his demons, Valerie had begun a relationship with her financial planner Tom Vitale in 2004.  A disturbingly convenient person to have on your side during a divorce for sure.  The relationship blossomed and as of yesterday during a trip to Florence, Italy, Tom proposed and Valerie accepted.  Valerie told the press, “We’d talked about getting married, but I was still shocked. It was sweet when he asked me, because he was so scared. I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?'”

Tom will do the wedding planning since apparently he even has specific ideas about what type of bells should ring during the ceremony.  Now that is a man in touch with his feminine side for sure. He was deathly nervous about asking her stating that, “If the time wasn’t right, I wouldn’t have asked. We’re both still a little afraid of commitment, but then we were over there, and it was like our souls were calibrated.”  So ladies and gentlemen, a big congratulations are in order because Valerie, you deserve it!
