This is love?

Love - in all its various shapes and forms - is clearly in the air these days. Or at least in the news.

Meredith from Grey's Anatomy, is now engaged, which gives me hope that some inner glow will bubble up from within her on the show, giving her character enough of a backbone to make this more than (in the words of a friend of mine) "Ally McBeal in a Hospital."

I was feeling a bit sorry for Kevin Federline yesterday; it seems odd that he's taking such a beating in the press when he never pretended to be anything but a dancer/bad boy. Britney fell for it, but she knew what she was getting into. So as bad as his new CD might be, I'm surprised that he's getting pummeled so much harder than certain other celebrity men whose relationships ended because they were unfaithful. Apparently, we are far more offended by men who rap badly than men who sleep with other women. We might want to think about that...

In other news, the wax museum has decided to pull their planned depiction of a Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie wedding. Not because such a thing would be strange, gross, and utterly unappealing, but because they don't want to offend the celebrities. If this article is correct, this might have been Ben Affleck's one chance to stand side-by-side with Liberace. Sorry, Ben.

And finally, TomKat & Co. has arrived in Rome for the long-awaited ceremony. This will make it easy, I suspect, for Katie's family to pray round-the-clock rosaries for her deliverance from the undefinable strangeness that has overtaken Tom Cruise.


Okay, it seems like this wasn't much about love at all...but I have a fun love story for you tomorrow, so stay tuned...

Isn't it amazing what we truly think "love" is by watching "stars" and their relationships. People should truly look at the regular people. The mom walking down the street with her baby..or the dad coaching his son and a team in sports. That is love.

Nice to meet you, I am Chris.

This post reminded me of a celebrity that married a "real" woman; a friend of mine attended their wedding and had to sign a confidentiality agreement, because here's the catch: this marriage was to be kept secret...in fact, to further his career, he and another well-known female celebrity were to wear the "couple" front together at movie premieres and other public events. (While his "real" wife hung out at home, presumably.)

My friend won't say who this famous couple is. But isn't that weird???

Do think Tom's strangeness is new, or that he's always been this way, but he used to have better people protecting him from himself?

Meredith's engagement gives ME hope because she's 37! I'm like, OK, I still have hope :)

(Not really. I'm not that pathetic. Well, a little.)

Hahahahaha! Trish, you're hilarious!

And Jess, that story is unbelievable! I'd never in a million years agree to that if I were the wife. Or in this case, the 'other woman'.

A little bit of celebrity gossip is a good thing. It helps the rest of us feel a little more normal :-)

Does anyone else see the irony in Cruise, who lured Katie from her Catholicism, getting married in ROME? What, a papal blessing on their space ship?
