Celebrity engagements

They started dating just nine months ago but Scarlett Johansson and French journalist Romain Dauriac are already engaged. Now, I have nothing against quick engagements but considering Scarlett split from her first husband Ryan Reynolds after just two years in 2010 (divorce was finalised in 2011), I’m surprised at her rush to tie the knot again. Then again, Reynolds is already on to wife number two, (aka Blake Lively), so maybe she was feeling left out?

Also, People magazine (aka the mouthpiece of celebrity publicists) is speculating that Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are engaged. It hasn’t been confirmed yet but when something gets printed in People, it’s a sign of things to come. Ashton’s still working out the details of a messy divorce from Demi Moore so I just find it baffling that he would want to rush into another marriage before his first is even officially over.

I get that celebrities live in a strange bubble that us mere mortals could never understand but don’t they have friends they can turn to for advice? Is there no one who will say, ‘Ah Ashton, maybe wait until your divorce comes through!!’

No one wants to end up like poor Zsa Zsa Gabor, who was married nine times and is now stuck with Prince Frederic. This charmer TMZ every time she has a health scare and didn’t even tell her that her leg had been amputated!
