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!

Twilight Star Gets Engaged (+ 4 more engagements)

So what celebrities got engaged during the month of November 2009? And does anyone really care?  Of course we do!  Hey, weddings are a big deal around here.

1) Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart

While most twilight fanatics are screaming foul play and refuse to believe it’s true, Robert Pattinson confirmed the rumor as true to Matt Lauer on the Today Show.  However, some say that even though he admitted it, that it was done jokingly and that it probably won’t happen because he’s been pretty much dating non-stop and it just doesn’t seem realistic.  Well, believe it Team Edward fans. There’s even been a lot of “I’ll believe it when I see it” stances as well.  You gals are hardcore about this man. He’s on the market until he says I Do! – Source

2) Hulk Hogan & Jennifer McDaniel

Assuming that he actually does know best, the Hulkster has decided to get engaged to a woman who disturbingly looks like a hybrid of his ex and his daughter.  Hulk Hogan pointed out the engagement ring to TMZ photographers at the LAX airport and said that she could be the next Mrs. Hogan.  Her name is Jennifer McDaniel and she even showcased a “lovely” tattoo of his first name (Terry) that she had tattooed on her right wrist. The couple has been dating since 2008 which is only 4 months after Hulk’s divorce from Linda Bollea.  Some guys never learn. – Source

3) Chelsea Clinton & Mark Mezvinsky

Being the daughter of a former president qualifies for you for celebrity status. When photographers follow you to the bathroom stall, you’re a celebrity.   Chelsea made the announcement via email during Thanksgiving to friends and family.  The couple met in Washington DC and have been dating since 2005. They simmered the relationship at Stanford University and he’s now an investment banker while Chelsea finishes up her studies at Columbia. – Source

4) Penelope Cruz & Javier Bardem

While Penelope Cruz refuses to confirm the rumor, we’re going to push it as fact simply because she refuses to deny it.  When asked directly by David Letterman during her late night appearance if she was engaged, she simply said that she refused to discuss her private life.  But when she appeared at a premiere with a sapphire and diamond engagement ring on her ring finger, it was her way of letting people into her private life. Women get ridiculously excited when they get engaged, so this was her way of publicly gushing.  If she simply said, “I’m not engaged”, then that would have been that, but the very denial is a confession!  So stop being silly Penelope.  We’re actually still happy you didn’t stay with Tom Cruise. – Source

5) Jensen Ackles & Danneel Harris

The Supernatural star Jensen Ackles has confirmed that he and longtime girlfriend Danneel Harris from One Tree Hill are finally engaged.  Even though the public says that it doesn’t appear that there’s a lot of passion between them, source from both parties have confirmed the rumor.   The couple have been dating for about 3 years now, but have been friends for almost a decade.  He confirmed it to and she confirmed it on her Twitter account. – Source

Other notable wedding engagement news:

  • Tara Ried says that even though she’s wearing an engagement ring on her finger that she is not engaged…yet.  People
  • Eminem’s mom got engaged to her bisexual agent, Neal Alpert. Why they felt that detail was important was apparently important for some reason. China Daily News
  • Mickey Rourke & Elena Kuletskaya are NOT engaged and he’s telling everyone and carrying on as if he’s single.  Besides the fact that she is engaged to another man. Hmmm. Zimbio
  • Playboy Bunny Stephanie Adams is engaged to…a man.  ‘The Man” wasn’t named, but the big deal is that Stephanie is a lesbian and even came out at a Pride parade, so that’s why they simply say “a man”.  Hey, it happens.  Can you say “Anne Heche”?
  • and finally, Robbie Williams denies that he’s engaged. Daily Mall

Know of any November wedding engagements we missed?  That’s what the comment box below is for. But which one of these top 5 engagements is the biggest deal to you?

Reality TV Always Ends in Divorce

kate-gosselin-wedding-ringWedding rings aren’t cheap and they signify something a tad more important than just being jewelry.  While Jon Gosselin is off partying with Lindsay Lohan’s father in the Hamptons for some reason, his wife Kate has put her ring back on.  Apparently Kate is trying to keep herself together and her kids heads on straight.  She is the only glue in these kids lives, so why she’s still wearing the ring is a mystery.

On the flip side, LeeAnn Rimes who was caught in a scandalous affair with costar Eddie Cibrian has separated from her husband and has decided to finally take her wedding band off.  As a result, Cibrian’s wife has apparently decided to take a marital break also since the affair was uncovered by the press.

While divorce seems to be the hip new trend in Hollywood, many people have begun to notice that when you invite cameras into your home, divorce is closely behind.  Just ask Jon and Kate (Jon and Kate Plus Eight), Hulk Hogan (Hogan Knows Best), Nick and Jessica (Newlyweds), Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro (Til Death Do Us Part), Britney and Kevin (Chaotic), Travis and Shanna (Meet The Barkers), Whitney and Bobby (Being Bobby Brown), and Danny and Gretchen (Breaking Bonaduce).  There are very few marriages that have withstood the glare of the lights and walked away unscathed.  Hail Snoop!

While Americans have an insatiable appetite for reality television that invades the lives of interesting characters, at what cost is enough too much?  Is it necessary that we see how celebrities live, what they eat, what brand of toilet paper they use, and to see every argument and failure?  Is it to prove to ourselves that they are just like us by watching them fail in various aspects of their lives?  Is it to live vicariously through them by following them on shopping sprees, drinking binges and temper tantrums?  What is the fascination that keeps the ratings skyrocketing and ruining lives and marriages one after the other?  While to some degree TV and movie stars are “asking for it” and give up their privacy to some extent when they sign on for the job, where is the line to be drawn and will we ever be able to draw it?

5 More Celebrity Rumors!

Mr. Christopher once again taking a break from planning weddings to bring you some more celebrity rumors.   While I’d like to do these as often as possible, sometimes there just isn’t enough juicy stuff to make it worth reading. Luckily for you, that has changed and here they are.  5 more sweet rumors.

Rumor #1 – Michael Jackson Has Skin Cancer

michael-jackson-maskLet’s face it.  Michael is simply an amazing performer.  One only needs to listen to anything up to Thriller to know that.  But his personal life is an absolute mess and it is has caused him internal psychological warfare that has had an inevitable effect on his writing.  The biggest of which is his appearance which has been butchered by California’s worst.   Quack after quack has had their way with Michael’s mug and I would be shocked if he didn’t have skin cancer.  But this rumor started as Michael has been seen visiting his long time dermatologist Dr. Arnie Klien several times a week. Not once a week or a couple times a week, but several times a week. I’ve always loved Michael’s music, but I would be shocked if it wasn’t true, so we’re going to start the mill and say that..

This rumor is: Highly Possible That It’s True. I don’t want it to be true, hope that it’s not true, but all signals point to true.

Rumor #2 – Singer Kelis is Broke

Kelis-and-nasSinger Kelis hasn’t been on the road for over a year and is about to give birth to another spawn of arguably one of the greatest rappers of our time, Nas.  She has filed papers to the courts documenting her financials so that she can get child support from Nas.  Her bills are exceeding $80,000 per month.  Yes, per month. When her and Nas were together, they collectively brought in more than enough to cover those bills, but now, sniff, she’s only bringing in a mere $20,000 per month.  That’s only $240K per year.  What’s a girl to do?  How can anyone live on such a paltry amount?  The documents state that her mortgage alone is almost $15,000 per month!   So let’s get real.  She may not be raking in the cash that she was making previously, but everyone reading this would strangle relatives to be clearing almost a quarter of a million a year.  It’s insulting.   She can still live large in the regular world.

This rumor is: False. By Hollywood standards maybe, but normal people standards, she’s far from broke.

usher-and-tameka1Rumor #3 – Usher is Getting a Divorce

This was a rumor that people were quick to deny to try and protect his career (as if anything could derail it).  When wife Tameka was asked about the rumor, she was totally blindsided and had no idea what they were talking about.  It was all speculation.  Well speculate no more.  The papers were officially filed in Georgia in Fulton County and Usher showed up without a ring on his finger at LAX.

This rumor is: True. The naked ring finger happens often, but official government ordained papers don’t write themselves.

Rumor #4 – Lindsay Lohan Stole $500,000 in Jewelry

Lindsey-LohanHey, I don’t just make this stuff up.  A half a million dollars in jewelry went missing after a photo shoot for ELLE magazine.  One of the suspects?  Miss Lindsay Lohan.  Scotland Yard is investigating the disappearance of the super expensive jewels and Lindsay is cooperating.  New details have emerged from ELLE magazine that have come to Lindsay’s defense indicating that they “have no reason to believe” that Lindsay is involved in the heist.  But until it gets resolved, we’re going to with our gut reaction and say that…

This rumor is: Most Likely False. Obviously, stranger things have, cough, Winona, cough, happened, but Lindsay is on a mission to revive her career and I’m confident she wouldn’t sabotage it for some bling.

Rumor #5 – Linda Hogan Spends Hulk’s Alimony on Drugs

hulk-hogan-linda-hoganOh Gawd.  Who really cares what that nutbag chick does?  That whole family is whack.  But we have to do our job.  Hulk Hogan pays his estranged wife Linda a whopping $40,000 a month in alimony and multiple witnesses are on board ready to attack her as a druggie who is blowing that cash on blow, pot and the painkiller Roxycodon.  Her hairdresser is claiming that Linda comes in to the salon to cash checks there so she has some green to buy her favorite pot and Roxy combo.  And another unnamed truck driver says that he has seen her snort blow on a boat before. So, hmm, we’ll say that…

This rumor is: True. Let’s face it. Divorces are ugly and there are tons of false accusations and lies that surface when there are tens of thousands of dollars being forked out.  But when you add multiple witnesses, you better have a crazy good alibi.

That’s it for right now!  Mr. C signing off.
