Hot on the heels of her breakup with Leo, Blake Lively has found herself a new man–Ryan Reynolds. Now, I’m not going to lie, I enjoy Ryan’s movies (especially his early ones a là Lifetime), but I do question his taste in women. Case in point: his marriage to ScarJo, whose fake extensions in the rom-com classic “He’s Just Not That Into You” make me cringe with horror, as does her singing voice (which is thankfully never revealed in the movie–good job, film editors!). But their marriage seemed to be a happy one, so I accepted it as one of those things…though I accepted their divorce as inevitable.
But BLAKE LIVELY? Really? She has no talent, limp hair, and a speaking voice that puts me to sleep. And she dumped the perfectly nice Penn Badgley (LOVE HIM! especially in THIS). The only thing I can give her credit for is being the younger sister of 80s “most popular girl” Robyn Lively (watch the “Teen Witch” Trailer here…seriously, watch it. And then, go watch the movie. DO IT.), and Eric Lively, the star of Pink’s ‘Please Don’t Leave Me’ video. Other than her family connections, she really doesn’t have much going for her. I suppose she needs to land these high-profile men in order to ensure her own status in the ever-changing land of celebrity popularity.
I hope it doesn’t last.
