Couples News! ‘Liger’ Is A Thing And A Mad Man Gets Engaged

 

It’s officially Spring, a time for love. We’re also past a number of major holidays, so it’s also the perfect time to breakup with someone. You can always console yourself with chocolate bunnies–or meerkats!

Frankly, Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn deserve each other. Liger, as they are being called, officially announced their relationship earlier this week through a series of awfully staged pictures. Woods has been known for keeping a low profile, that is until his very public cheating scandal back in 2009. Wow, has it been that long since my dislike of this guy was justified?

The 37 year-old pro golfer wrote on his Facebook page,

Something nice that’s happened off the course was meeting Lindsey Vonn. Lindsey and I have been friends for some time, but over the last few months we have become very close and are now dating.”

This is the most unromantic announcement of anything that I have ever read. Newspaper obituaries are more romantic. In a press interview Woods said that he did this to get ahead of the media, but 28-year old skiier, Vonn herself said that it “wasn’t a well-kept secret.” Vonn finalized her divorce from husband Thomas Vonn in January of 2012. Woods divorced his ex-wife Elin Nordegren in 2010. They have two childen, Sam,5, and Charlie, 4. Let’s ignore when Lindsey made fun of Tiger Tiger Woods Y’all when we all found out what a bigger cheater he was and wish them the best of luck. Or not, whatever.

Another “wait, what?” couple is ‘Mad Men’ star Vincent Kartheiser and actress Alexis Bledel. The pair met on set of the show, where Bledel played Pete Campbell’s loopy love interest, and are now engaged. Kartheiser, 33, proposed to Bledel, 31, a few weeks ago, Alexis’ rep confirmed to US Weekly. Bledel’s former TV mom Lauren Graham sent them well wishes, as did Vincent’s co-star Elisabeth Moss who gave the couple her blessing.  The biggest question is, will Jon Hamm wear underwear to their wedding?

Unfortunately, another pair of television actors call it quits. I didn’t even know that Regina King and Malcom-JamalWarner were a couple until my sister told me last year, (hey Chianti!) but I’m really sad to hear of their break-up. A source tells US Weekly that Warner asked King and her son to move out of the house they shared during their two years of dating. “She’s still very brokenhearted,” says the insider.

Regina, who stars on one of favorite shows ‘Southland,’ shot down engagement rumors back in 2011, but told Essence magazine that same year that she and Malcolm-Jamal had a lot in common because they were both child stars. If Cosby kids and Brenda Jenkins from ‘227′ can’t make it work, there’s no hope for the rest of us.

Something tells me it was more than just location, location, location issues for Seth MacFarlane and Emilia Clarke. A source confirmed to E! News that the couple that I’m sure no one else knew about either were no longer dating.

It was really a location challenge. She has been in Europe shooting ‘Game of Thrones’ and he is based in California, so it was hard to make it work despite the distance. They have remained friends.” 

How much you want to bet it had something to do with that ‘I Saw Your Boobs’ song he performed at last month’s Oscars

Jack of all trades James Franco is dating Ashley Benson of ABC Family’s hit show “Pretty Little Liars”.

The New York Post has spotted the pair together on the East Coast near NYU (is he teaching there too?) as well as in Los Angeles holding hands on a haunted hay ride.

So the next time Ashley stumbles out of The Chateau Marmont, she might have Oscar-nominated company.
