Pick your clever song or film reference for the new celebrity romance of MEG RYAN and JOHN “COUGAR” MELLENCAMP?!?!?!
I did not see that one coming.
For me, this is right up there on the level of
Eddie Van Halen & Valerie Bertinelli
Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin
Jennifer Anniston & John Mayer
Heather Locklear & Tommy Lee
Julia Roberts & Lyle Lovett
I really don’t “get” these romances. Are they real? How do they meet? How do they all fit in one bed? I mean, a man, a woman and two HUGE egos can get crowded.
Anyway, back to the celebromance du jour. I know that I am a cynic, but I have always thought that Meg Ryan is not the apple pie, sweet girl next door that she plays in every movie she’s been in. Besides, I LOVE Dennis Quaid and I think there was more to that story than we were privy to. (Can you say Russell Crowe?)
And, John Mellencamp? Well, while his music brings back great high school memories, I always thought he was a bit of a tool when he feigned selective amensia regarding the toolish “Cougar” adjective that he threw around in the 70s and 80s and the way he’s tried to be the Midwestern Bruce Springsteen.
