Meg Ryan & John Mellencamp Affair


It is really interesting that within a few days of John Mellencamp announcing that he and his wife were splitting that all of a sudden Meg Ryan is everywhere with him. Meg, who had her career basically ruined when she was caught cheating on her husband, probably appreciates the fact she has no career to ruin this time. Meg has been seen at John's concerts and this seems like a relationship that probably had its beginnings while John was still married. Well, married and living with his wife. So, what do you think? Affair or did this "happen" after John and his wife split?

i think it's pretty obvious what happened here and it didn't just happen since the split from his wife.

and they make a very fucking odd couple.

shakey said...

At least he's going out with someone closer to his age range.

Patty said...

Perhaps they enjoy sharing cosmetic procedure/surgery stories and how they look like a Batman villian compared to how they used to look.

JoElla said...

Oh Meg :(

Rickatoo said...

is this the much younger, former French model, trophy wife he was cheating on his high school sweetheart wife with when he was singing songs about how much in love with his high school sweetheart wife and what a small town, down to earth family man he was?

Kelli said...

He left Elaine Irwin for her???

BigMama said...

don't know, have a damned difficult time caring. Though, I still think Russell Crow was every bit as much to blame as she was. Also, wasn't it fairly well known that her husband was a big honking cheater.....wow, guess I care more than I thought. LOL

Barton Fink said...

@Patty, totally!

Robert said...

Talk about the Odd Couple...how the hell do these two even know each other?

jess said...

And here she (and he!) goes again..

rose said...

No Rickatoo, Elaine Irwin is his third wife of 20 years. She is an american model for Almay. Their was a 3 year break between his 2nd marriage and theirs. It was his first & second that overlapped in 1981.

Rickatoo said...

thanks, rose. i guess all the name changes got me confused on his true chronology.

RocketQueen said...

Oh, Meg. I still wonder how she could cheat on her hot piece Dennis for Russell. Trade down.

MISCH said...

DENNIS CHEATED ON HER...but this is just too weird.

nancer said...

fine. dennis cheated on her. does that make it ok for her to turn around and cheat too?

i've never understood this argument. your husband cheats, get a divorce. don't compound the fuckery by doing exactly the same thing.

MISCH said...

No....it doesn't. However celebrities seem to have a different set of rules to live by.
Personally I find John Mellencamp as appealing as a slug, but to each her own.

Paisley said...

I can't look at either one of them. Their faces are too messed up.

You trumped your own Quote of the Day!

Jamie's Girl said...

Meg Ryan, passed 'cute' 15 years ago. She's been nothing but desperate since then.

Mellencamp hasn't been interesting since he used 'cougar'.

valerie said...

When things get hot and heavy between the two of them, does the wax on their faces melt?

Cheryl said...

This one feels really random and Meg isn't small town at all. I always assumed that Elaine Irwin put up with a lot.

wonderdiva said...

Wow, what a bizarre pairing. I give it 15 minutes.

RocketQueen said...

Who did Dennis cheat on her with? That's the first time I've heard that.

The Tempestuous Grape said...

I'm pretty sure Dennis is the one that stepped out on Megenstien first.

@valerie That was my first thought!

jax said...

uh...hold the phone.
MEG was cheating with Russel FIRST,not Dennis. does no one remember the sad pictures of him and their son while she was off fuxing Crowe??

jax said...

plus, if Tom Hanks hates you, you're pretty much a guaranteed asshole.

TinselSass said...

The stories of Dennis cheating go way way back and that Meg put up with hell for a long time. That said, she did cheat so she gets what she gets. Her awful plastic face does nothing to restore her "America's sweetheart" status.

jax said...

got any links?

not calling anyone a liar,but i've been reading gossip blogs and tabloids since i could read and i've never heard anything like that.

it really wouldn't have been that big a scandal when she did cheat if he'd done it first.

Sauce said...

I am really bummed about this divorce. I went to school in Bloomington, IN where John and his (now ex) wife live. They would come into the restaurant where I worked and they were always so nice and polite. Even their kids were nice. I was so impressed by them.
And ew, Meg Ryan these days is a total step down from Elaine Irwin. She is even prettier in person than in photos.
/my two cents.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

I distinctly remember it came out *after* Ryan and Quaid had been divorced a couple years that he had actually been the first one to step out, and was, in fact, a chronic cheater. Quaid never denied it. What was strange was that the story didn't really pick up much traction because people were really invested at that point in blaming Meg. *Perhaps* it even came out at some point after Quaid's little babies were born, so he had the public sympathy.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Here are some quotes about Meg claiming Quaid cheated first:

On second thought, Quaid may have denied it, my memory is kind of hazy about the specifics.

bc said...

Sauce, I went to IU as well, however I remember John being widely regarded as an asshole who belittled his wife regularly. Who knows though.

jax said...

maybe i'm cynical but i would NOT put it past Meg herself to put those rumours out about Quaid, because let's face it- she came off looking horrible in that breakup. It's funny how cheating is a big secret until the finger gets pointed at you...then all of a sudden that finger points at everyone.

thnx for the info.

libby said...

I lived in Bloomington while Elaine was pregnant both times.
Sure John may be an asshole, but a lot of people would probably think I'm an asshole too. I like his music and his populist politics. I'm buying his music, not deciding whether to invite him to my barbecue.

The Bloomington fans I know who saw him in public (usually a gas station) would always complain that he was an 'asshole' b/c he didn't want to chit-chat with them. The scenario would always be that he had been thankful and polite at first, but cut them off 'rudely' and went on his way.
I think that's his right.

libby said...

jax, I think Meg's cheating destroyed her b/c she was 'America's Sweetheart'. It's a kind of sexism that her fooling around was such an issue.

I admit I could never stand her and was glad to see her go.

Sauce said...

bc, I don't know what he was like when approached for an autograph, etc. but he was always polite to servers which says something when plenty of non-celebrities treat servers like crap.

Wil said...

Apparently, these two were openly seen together in October .. so me thinks he was cheating on Elaine and she might have just found out .. or John thinks this is true love .. or who knows what.

But .. suffice to say .. I agree they are as strange a couple as Lyle Lovett and Julia Roberts. I think they will also last as long. They both strike me as "me-me-me" assholes. Those types of personalities do not last long together.

mazemerizing said...

Quaid was a cheater, no doubt about it.

I thought what killed Meg's "America's Sweetheart" title was Meg. She got tired of it and wanted to do serious roles, like "Proof of Life" with Russell Crowe. I, for one, thought she was definitely past her prime in "Kate and Leopold."

And agree with everybody else, she and Mellancamp are ick and it won't last.

Reese said...

I presume John's eyesight is failing. Meg has looked ghastly for a long time now, and Elaine Irwin is holding up very nicely. From what I've heard from friends who work at Ralph Lauren in NY and have dealt with Elaine professionally, she's very nice and easy to get along with. Who knows, but it is too bad for their still young children.

Susan said...

jax - please dish on tom hanks hating on meg ryan. this is news to me.

this thread was made of awesome. you guys had some really hysterical posts. thank you.

ChasingHeaven said...

I live in Bloomington, IN now. I hope I see them out together. What restaurant did you work at Sauce? Maybe I'll stake it out and test my skills at being a paparazzo! Woot! lol

Oh yeah, my 2 cents is that maybe Elaine and John have been split for some time now and it's only now made public leaving he and Meg in the clear for their shenanigans. Then again, he was with Elaine a few months back when the Dalai Lama was here so who knows?

Henriette said...

I did not know Tom Hanks hated Meg Ryan! I know I hated all of their movies together. The only movie I liked Meg Ryan in was When Harry Met Sally..., which is one of my all time favorite movies. Everything else she was in put me to sleep.

Angela said...

By the way, Mellencamp may not sell that many records or be a box office attraction now but his last two albums have received lots of praise in the music press. they're basically recorded on the fly in an hotel room as just as he's written a song and it's his best material in decades.

MCH said...

John Mellencamp was one of my FAVORITES in high school. I didn't know he still toured. I'd like to see him.

I definitely remember reading in an interview Meg gave where she said that Dennis was the initial cheater & had been cheating for a very long time. Then Dennis fired back at her for bringing it up so many years later.

This is definitely a WTF couple alert.

I also want to know why Tom Hanks hates her!!

SnowWhiite said...

i used to love meg until i ran into her, dennis and their kid at the Capital...he was skinny as a twig (remembered he used to do coke and wondered if he was still doing it) but VERY nice. their son was shy but sweet and she was the biggest BEE-ITCH i had ever seen! this was right after she filmed a movie w/Walter Matthau as her dad and Lisa Kudrow and Diane Keaton were her sisters - it was also RIGHT BEFORE the news of her affair with Crowe broke...DQ was nice but he did look very miserable and i was so disappointed - until i heard about her and crowe - and how he dumped her like she dumped her family...

antigossip2 said...

I have to laugh so loud when people pretend Dennis Quaid was some innocent victim.

NEWSFLASH: DENNIS QUAID WAS AND IS A SERIAL CHEATER. Not to mention he had and has problems with alcohol and certain other addictions. Don't ever feel sorry for him.

And no Dennis never denied the cheating. It was during the late nineties and I know for a fact it was at least with several really young movie extras he 'scored' on the Any Given Sunday set. But he cheated for years so who knows what other girls he slept with. Meanwhile he has also cheated on his third wife, but she does not care. Golddiggers. Gotta love em!

SnowWhite you saw her when she had found out Dennis cheated on ehr over and over again. So no wonder if she wasn't feeling okay. SHE was not the one who threw her marriage away, Quaid did that with his years of cheating and his years of being addicted to whatever.

As for Meg and John together: GROSS!
