When one marriage disintegrates, crushing our hopes that true love can exist in this world, another marriage springs forth, mostly validating our belief that true love will never exist. Such is the case with the weekend’s first marriage, between Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, who didn’t even wait for the embers to burn out on his first two-year marriage to Scarlett Johannson, which followed a three-year engagement to Alanis Morissette, before he and his abs took the plunge.
True love, indeed. At least for a few months. Blake Lively, of course, has a reputation for falling in love with her co-stars. The good news is: Lively’s career has hit a snag, and she has no projects impending.
Such a sweet couple. For a few more weeks, at least.
But here’s the one I’m pinning my hopes for true love on: Cobie Smulders and Taran Killam were also married over the weekend. Those crazy kids have been living in sin for years, and even have a bastard child together. I understand that they were content to live in the Devil’s penthouse for the rest of their lives, but Amy Poehler personally contacted Taran Killam to request that they tie the knot in order to restore America’s belief that two television stars can, indeed, make it work.
Look how adorable they are.
I give it three years before poor Shaelyn Cado Killam begins the step-parent tally.
