Miss Penny Lane


I always tell the girls, never take it seriously.
If ya never take it seriously, ya never get hurt.
Ya never get hurt, ya always have fun...
And if you ever get lonely, just go to the record store and visit your friends.

I am SHOCKED!

(NOT!!) Damn, I shoulda placed a wager on this one.


    Bridget Jones is untying the knot. Renee Zellweger, who played the lovelorn Brit in "Bridget Jones's Diary," and country music star Kenny Chesney will have their four-month-old marriage annulled, Chesney's publicist, Holly Gleason, and Zellweger's Los Angeles-based publicist Nanci Ryder, confirmed to The Associated Press on Thursday.

    In court papers filed Wednesday, Zellweger listed "fraud" as the reason for the breakup but did not elaborate.



FRAUD? Ooo, now this sounds a lot more fun than your average celeb-split! She is getting the marriage annulled. Slam! I personally don't get the whole annulment thing.


    "So, you ever been married?" he asks.
    "Well, not really," she begins. "I did get married, but I got it annulled, so it doesn't count."
WTF? IT COUNTS! IT HAPPENED! Ask those who were at your wedding; it happened. (Take a look at all your debt from the wedding; it happened!) It may not have worked out, but you were married! You can't change that. What especially gets me is when couples have their marriages annulled after they've been married for years, have kids together, etc. That's not just a slam to your spouse, it also ain't so nice to your kids. For some people, annulment seems to be a religious thing. Puh-leeze! The marriage still happened! Your god knows. Get over it!

I'm so curious about the freud allegations!! And, WTF? Between this guy and Keith Urban, this rock & roll girl might have to go a little country... YUM!

25 Band Aides had a tale from the tour:

    It's just legal fiction. And it's probably faster to obtain an annulment than a divorce in most jurisdictions. I could see getting an annulment in Britney Spears' case - an immediate do over!! But not after months (or in some people's cases, years) of being married.

    All good points, but I can't wait to learn what she means by fraud!!!

    I heard on the radio that the rumor is he's gay... I was terribly excited until the radio host used the word "fruity" to describe gay men.

    PS, I have a non-secret crush on Kenny Chesney and Keith Urban... and don't get me started on Tim Mcgraw...mmmmmmmmmm

    In order to have a marriage annulled don't you have to prove you never consummated it? :P

    And that would go to prove the gay rumor too...

    Oh, AND, from Conversations about Famous People:

    The divorce papers state "FRAUD" as Renee's reason for the split. Which in Hollywoodspeak, means she just found out he was going on tour with Clay Aiken. In other words, Kenny is as a gay as a three dollar bill in Elton Johns billfold.

    Awesome find, Kathryn! Man, if Kenny is gay, Dale et al are lucky bitches.

    Riiiight because him being gay betters my chance of ever having sex with him...hmmm note to self, go to remingtons more....

    Well, it is always nice to have people on your team. I get psyched when I hear that a celeb is a vegetarian or member of the tribe, but it doesn't make it more likely I'll have sex with them, either...

    It took her 4 months to realize that he was a "fraud" (whatever that means).
    I know they didn't date long before getting married...but he must be some damn good actor.
    If he is gay...why on earth did he marry her? Jeez...I seriously do not understand why people still choose to stay in the closest.
    Why deny who your are just because you are afraid what others are going to think (especially redneck fans). As Dave Chappelle would say, "You are rich bitch!" Come out already...

    This gives me an idea for a country act: "The Chick-see Dicks". Not sure how well that would go over....Maybe it should be spelled "Chicksy"? Whatever, you people figure it out.

    Well, a legal annulment is would be warranted in this case, if indeed the marriage was built on fraud. Since marriage is simply a civil contract, if one of the parties defrauded the other, the annulment could be granted.

    That being said, if she that stupid that she had no idea he like to shop at the Liberace House of Crap after even a week of marriage it doesn't say too much about our dear Renee's brain power.

    And I really like Renee. I'll forgive her this misstep (much as I forgave her performance in Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason) if she really does do that remake of Cabaret that's been rumored.

    Are you listening, Renee? No Cabaret, no forgiveness from Blood Ray.

    Rene has a long string of floundering relationships, and yes, I've been hearing the gay rumor all day. I remember the stink that may still be going on when that Kennedy (Michael?) was boinking the babysitter, then wanted an annulment from his marriage, just so his new bride could be married in the Catholic church. Nice touch. Bastardize your existing children in their own faith.

    What *I* want to know is, will Jack Black annul his on-the-river Brazilian wedding to Karen Elson now? Because his marriage (which occurred a month after they met) came a leeeeeetle too close to Renee's.

     
  • At 4:50 PM, September 16, 2005, Blogger Siryn said…

    I had a feeling it was the fruit.

    But the thing is, his country music career may tank because the main consumers of that stuff are usually homophobes. Guess we'll have to see what happens...

    If he is gay, why the hell marry a celebrity? Marry some normal chick and get a prenup!

    You mean Jack White, Kathryn.
    But it is interesting how he got married so soon after Renee.
    Hmmmmm...maybe they had a bet going.

     
  • At 10:18 PM, September 16, 2005, Blogger Miss Penny Lane said…

    Ya scared me for a minute--I thought Jack Black married someone other than me...

     
  • At 10:43 PM, September 16, 2005, Blogger Justin said…

    Poor Renee. I think the "fraud" was that he LOOKED good but was really bad in bed.

    What bigger fraud could there be?

     
  • At 10:03 AM, September 17, 2005, Blogger Kris said…

    Blood Ray has it right. This is definitely not as bad an error as Bridget Jones 2. Even if he is a country singer. ;)

    I love that it was "fraud" that split them up -- perfection. He's queerer than a football bat, it would seem. I never knew that was the legal terminology! Poor Jack White, too...so much pain, Renee...so much pain.

    How many other straight 30 year old men wear pooka shell necklaces? He might be gay, but I just don't want him to be. Between his bad fashion sense and her constant "sucking a pickle" face, I hope the annulment happens quickly enough to get them back out of the news. Bitter? Party of 1?

    This Latina went country and I haven't regretted it.

    Fraud=== Kenny Chesney is actually gay.

    I heard that the state of California makes it very very hard to obtain an annulment. You can only claim a few reasons for the annulment, i.e. one of the parties was not of sound mind or there was "fraud". So Renee probably just flipped a coin and chose fraud for the reason. These short-liced marriages are getting so cliche and tired.
