Celebrity couples you don’t buy as happy

A companion to the “celebrity couples who really are happy” thread.

I think Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively oversell it.

I’ve heard plenty of times that Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are actually miserable together and just play nice for the red carpet.

Barak and Michelle Obama

I think he prefers non-black women -- wasn't his ex-girlfriend Japanese American. But I think he understood that he needed a African American wife if he were to have a career in politics

Now, Michelle is the one into black women ... right Ms. Jarrett

I agree about the Obamas. It may be blasphemy to say but everything about both of them screams fake. His public persona is very offputting in the way you get with a certain kind of Ivy Leaguer. Michelle doesn't have that particular attitude, but she's annoying all the same.

This thread came to mind thanks to the whack jobs in those endless A rmie H ammer threads. They are now on the warpath taking down anyone who suggests that he and his wife might not be the picture of wedded bliss they present to the world. Because, you know, they look happy on social media and that means EVERYTHING.

I have "I Love Lucy" on every morning on Hallmark as I get ready. No wonder Ricky eventually divorced her - such a selfish woman. She stole John Wayne's footprints from Grauman's Chinese Theatre - she should have been tossed in jail for that. Broke into Richard Widmark's home. Always trying to get new furniture, get new hats, trying to mooch her way into Ricky's shows. She never gave a shit about Little Ricky. She always wants something - and schemes up ways to get it - "who cares! I WANT it." I don't think I've ever seen Lucy do anything nice for anyone - Ricky, Ethel, Fred, Carolyn Applebee, and, I don't she even paid Mrs. Trumble for babysitting. I hope Rick got a new - young hot Barbara Eden.

Obama lived most of younger life as a "fish out of water" kid who primarily leaned heavy into the white heritage of his mother's family. When he met Michelle, I think she represented the family he wanted but did not have. She just happened to be black. Interestingly Michelle's brother married a white woman and Malia seems to prefer white men.

Another vote for Ryan and Blake. I think Ryan is a total fake and is probably controlling. He seems to be a total narcissist and doesn’t want a wife that can ever upstage him. For all intents and purposes this guy should be lucky to get cast in a dinner theater production. But that stop ass movie series Deadpool revived a quickly dying movie career.

Fuck all the people saying the Obama’s I refuse to discuss or believe such things. Besides the scumbag Republicans were searching far and wide to use anything against the Obama’s or discredit them somehow. As for Barack dating mostly non-white women remember he was raised by a white parent and grew up in a predominantly white neighborhood. By the time he hit undergrad, law school, I’m sure he wasn’t sureounded by a ton of eligible black women.

I read something recently to the effect of “Love doesn’t need to be proven. It just is.” Hence why my bullshit-meter starts to go off when I hear a celebrity go on about their wonderful partner or when I read a long, flowery declaration of love on social media.

I’m sure some of these couples do love each other, but when they try to create this image of perfection they’re overcompensating for something.

I can’t figure out Ryan and Blake . It’s either an open marriage or they are both bi/gay. I have a credible source who has a magnificent home near them in New England and sees Ryan around with very hot ( pretty ) young men with Blake nowhere in sight . His take is that Ryan is gay and can live safely with his secret there . I just don’t get her or her angle ? She seems much more deceptive and calculating than him .

Would anyone have said “Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie” before the “shocking”/batshit crazy airport tarmac split?

I remember people on DL saying that either they were super in love or because they both had so many kids and so many failed marriages behind them, they would “hold on to this relationship for dear life”.

It seemed to take everybody surprised when they split—and so nastily too...

R53, Tom and Gisele began dating after she visited the Patriots locker room after a game and Tom brushed her off. She then recounted the incident in an interview and concluded that Tom might be gay because he was so brusque with her. Brady heard about what she said, called her and they began dating.

1. Beyonce and Jay Z. Together so they can say they're a billion dollar couple and the Beyhive can say Beyonce is a billionaire. All the "cheating" is them being with people they actually want to be with. Wouldn't be surprised if they divorce within the next five years so Beyonce can get a divorce and a single mother album out of it.

2. Victoria and David Beckham. Nobody gives a fuck about David's football skills other than Americans because David is a straight up mediocre player compared to the likes of Messi and other greats. Victoria's shit is flopping which is why the Spice Girl reunion is so wishy washy. She needs the press but she doesn't want to commit. Them being together is the biggest brand they have now.

3. Clooney and Amal. He's gay as fuck and wants to be in politics so he needed a nice clean woman with credentials. IVF twins complete it.
