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

 

Guest Commentary – Was Seth MacFarlane Funny Hosting The Oscars, Or Simply Misogynistic?

By: Dayna S.
Some of you may know who I am, and why I was given the opportunity to write a Guest Commentary, and to you, I say “welcome!“.
Actually, I was approached to write this post after my fury over on Facebook was noticed.  Sorry if I offended some people on MY social network page, but I am about to go off on just exactly how crude and demeaning Seth MacFarlane was during his hosting duties with regard to women. (Sure he made fun of Affleck, who was clearly pissed off–and it was because he was compared to the Kardashian women, but that’s not why we’re here.)
My feeling is that the only guys that think he is funny are the guys that wouldn’t dream of getting anywhere close to the caliber of bodies and beauty these actresses have–or anyone of that nature in their own town. And seemingly, the girls who think MacFarlane is funny are one job-firing away from swinging on the pole (at least in their mentality).

Women who have perfected a craft enough to win the most prestigious award for it (some multiple times) and withstand the test of time in maintaining interest in a very fleeting young-and-skinny obsessed society cannot escape the juvenile and misogynistic antics by the hands of humorist cartoonist, Seth MacFarlane.

Hey Seth, way to whittle away research, hard work, long hours, gaining/losing drastic amounts of weight for a role, staying in character, staying beautiful, delving into deeply emotional adaption of characters, down to a pair of tits for him to masturbate to. Because, ya know, that’s what women are for, and basically that is what I heard.

During his “We Saw Your Boobs” song Seth MacFarlane listed off women who’s breasts he’d seen in their movies. As if this isn’t grotesque enough four of the instances he listed were scenes of rape or the character was raped during the movie.

  • Hilary Swank in Boys Don’t Cry.
  • Jodie Foster in The Accused.
  • Jessica Chastain in Lawless.
  • Charlize Theron in Monster.
Yeah. That is my type of entertainment.
I absolutely know that guys love tits. I have been an owner of a decently sized set for a long time. I am also familiar with masturbation, and sure, it can definitely be a funny topic. However, I don’t think it should be at the expense of hard working female artists.  It was most definitely the WRONG ROOM for such crass remarks.

Seth MacFarlane To Host the 2013 Oscars?

Oh, HEY Guys!

Wow.  Seth MacFarlane hosting the 2013 Oscars?

I don’t know how this will go over with the audience at the Old Fart and Biddy Theater where the Oscars are broadcast in living color on your black and white television set.  I’m assuming the voting members of the Academy (super-old white dudes and their significant others/escorts) tend not to tune into to Stewie and the gang on Family Guy.  Nor have said old whiteys seen Seth’s hit film movie Ted which made a gazillion dollars all over the world.

Seth has released a statement regarding his excitement and mentioned Charlie Sheen:

“It’s truly an overwhelming privilege to be asked to host the Oscars,” MacFarlane said in the release. “My thoughts upon hearing the news were, one, I will do my utmost to live up to the high standards set forth by my predecessors; and two, I hope they don’t find out I hosted the Charlie Sheen roast.”

HA! Listen, I’m the first to admit to a tiny crush on tiny Seth.  Cute and funny go a long way up in here. But he was just okay hosting SNL and relied too heavily on his voices-schtick.  (Of course, if he didn’t “do Stewie” I’d be all mad about that, too…there’s no winning with my fat ass, apparently.)

Gaaah.  Whatever.  What do you all think?  I will say that I never cared much for Billy Crystal, except for when he first started hosting back in the what, 1930’s?  Of course I’d love to see mean, mean, FUNNY-mean Ricky Gervais host the Oscars but that will never happen.  He’s not even doing the Golden Globes again, so we’ve heard.

Stick with this look, Seth. You’ll like the way you look.

I have one bit of advice for Seth about hosting: Even though you’ve already worn this look, STICK WITH THE WHITE DINNER JACKET.  It draws the eye upwards and makes you appear TALLER. I know of what I speak. I guaran-effing-tee it.
