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

 

Sports Illustrated’s Brooklyn Decker Broadway Bound

Andy and Brooklyn

 

People Magazine recently caught up with Sports Illustrated swim suit covergirl Brooklyn Decker at a fundraising gala for her husband Andy Roddick’s foundation in Texas. Decker, Adam Sandler’s fantasy girl in Just Go With It and who got chummy with Rihanna while filming Battleship, assured the magazine that she “is no triple threat“. But goes on to say “I’ve never done any theater, but I am trying to read for a few plays and hopefully I will get something by the end of this year in New York. I might as well dive in head first.”

I’m not one for picking low hanging fruit, so I will just leave that there for now.

Perhaps inspired by Michael Douglas who saw Catherine Zeta Jones in The Mask of Zorro and called his pimp people, Roddick and Decker met after he spotted her in a magazine and did the same.

Recently retired from tennis, Roddick who won the US Open in 2003 stated in the same article that he had tired of the constant travel his sport demanded and was looking forward to spending time in Austin.

As a huge tennis fanatic, I’m not sure how I forgot to include them in our actress & sports star couples round up. But with Brooklyn threatening to take Broadway by storm let’s hope their relationship survives.

Eva Longoria and Mark Sanchez Really Are A Couple

Eva and Mark – New Couple?

 

Eva Longoria’s love life has landed back in the sports world with confirmation that she is dating NY Jets QB Mark Sanchez. The Desperate Housewives actress, formerly married to NBA star Tony Parker, was a speaker at last month’s Democratic National Convention. Let’s hope if she and Jets owner Woody Johnson, a Romney supporter, meet they can keep it civil!

Relationships between two high profile celebrities are tough to sustain. Mark is making the most of his time in NY and has been linked to the famous Kate Upton & Hayden Panettiere, as well as the infamous.

Here’s a short list of some other celebrities and their sport star partners.

Both Hilary Duff and Carrie Underwood found love on the ice with NHL players. Hilary’s guy Mike Comrie is recently retired giving him plenty of time to bond with their son Luca Cruz who was born in the spring of 2012.

Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher will also have a lot of bonding time if the NHL lock out isn’t resolved quickly.

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom  are possibly figuring out their own paternity, pregnant with twins, still have a TV show, staying in the NBA or  some other stuff that you can feel free to tell me about in the comments sections.

Last but definitely not least, are the biggest sports meets celebrity coupling since Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn MonroeVictoria and David Beckham. Having survived  one publicly acknowledged affair by Becks and rumors of more recent trouble this past summer, they are still together.

Did I miss anybody?  Over /Under on how long the above will last?
