Is she really going out with him?

Just heard a gossip report that Joe Pesci and Angie Everhart are engaged and that Joe Jackson song started playing in my head. I thought of Julia Roberts and Lyle Lovett, Dan Ackroyd and Donna Dixon. Couldn’t think too many famous hot guys seeing average looking girls, though. Loretta Lynn and Mooney were all I could think of.

Is she really going to take him home tonite?

Cause if my eyes don’t decieve me, there’s something going wrong around here.

Well, there she is. Let’s ask her
Betty, is that Jimmy’s ring you’re wearing?
Gee, it must be great riding with him
Is he picking you up after school today?
By the way, where’d you meet him?

[sings]I met him at the candy store…
(Sorry, but you know, the thread title…I couldn’t resist. :slight_smile: )

Joe Pesci? My Cousin Vinny? Not only is he short, bald, and funny looking but from what I’ve heard, he’s surly and obnoxious as well. Plus his career’s dead and he’s twenty six years older than Everhart. What exactly is she looking for in this marriage? Somebody who’ll help her get over Howard Stern?

When I saw Transformers, I was distracted by the fact that the guy who played the army captain, Josh Duhamel, has been dating Fergie for a few years now. He’s actually older than her but he looks like he could be in his late 20s while she looks like she’s been forced to live every day twice. Glamorous is kind of a catchy song, though, I guess.

I think the one that weirds me out the most is 60-year-old James Woods and the 20-year-old Ashley Madison, whom he knew when she was a little girl.


Update from my gossip source: Through her spokesperson, Angie says she and Pesci are just good friends.

Dan Gross is not my original source, btw. This was the only thing I could find on-line about it.

Now, on to dealing with my addiction to celeb gossip. . …

The thread title made you want to post lyrics to an unrelated song?

I think it’s fair to say that physical attractiveness in a mate is more important to men than to women. This is why you hear about many pairing like Ric Ocasek and Paulina Porizkova, and…well, I don’t want to be mean, but I’m sure you can all think of unattractive women who never married despite great achievement and personal charm.

The thread title is the first line of “Leader of the Pack” by the Shangri-Las, from 1964. Cite. I merely posted the remaining lines in the first verse of the song (which is actually spoken, not sung, so perhaps it doesn’t qualify as a “verse,” but you get the idea).

Could an argument be made for John and Oko of the plain & older woman getting the hot younger guy?


I think the confusion comes from the Joe Jackson song called “Is she really going out with him?” Same line, different generations. :slight_smile: Although I know both songs, my mind goes to the Joe Jackson one first.

John Mellencamp and Randy Travis are both married to rather ordinary-looking women (assistant and manager, respectively). And make what you will of the Tori Spelling/Dean McDermott pairing.

For that matter, how did Lennon and McCartney, the most sought-after men of their generation, wind up with Yoko Ono and Linda Eastman? Shit just happens, man…

Got a new rose, got it good…

I thought Mellencamp was married to a (Super)model.

Re. younger men-older women, Hugh Jackman’s wife, actress Deborra-Lee Furness, is eight years older than he – and although she’s very attractive, it’s probably fair to say that she isn’t (and, humanly, couldn’t possibly be) as much of a knockout as a woman as he is as a man. pics of the couple; Furness’ IMDB page.

This is John Mellencamp’s wife. Yes, poor thing. John is a real humanitarian for saving her from spinsterhood.

Yes, ZebraShaSha, I keep seeing the thread title and hearing Joe Jackson and desperately trying to switch my brain to The Damned to save my sanity.

that was very funny :slight_smile: thank you

This is why I always respect a hot young bimbo mroe than a withered millionaire – at least she’s going for more than looks!

Yeah, because going for money is so much less shallow.
