Aretha Franklin Engaged - Not Pregnant


Aretha Franklin announced yesterday that she is engaged. The Queen of Soul, who is 69 told reporters that she finally agreed to marry her very long time boyfriend. I love Aretha, and you know that her boyfriend Willie Wilkerson must be a very strong person to love the original diva. In her statement, Aretha cracked me up when she said, "No, I'm not pregnant." Aretha has been married twice before, but decided she might as well give it one more shot.

Good for her. I thought the pregnancy comment was hilarious.

Patty said...

Sounds like she is enjoying life right now. Good for her.

That woman deserves some happiness in her old age. Too many took advantage of her in her career.

MISCH said...

Hey Aretha, being pregnant and unmarried is nothing to be ashamed of in 2012....
Hope it's a girl..
Wishing you the best of luck....

She is fantastic, good for her!

But as a woman who had one herself, I have two words for you Aretha: Breast. Reduction.

What is she like a G cup? H?? She could definatly use a bit more support than those spaghetti straps are giving her!

figgy said...

Right @Skinny! I just imagine Stacy and Clinton from What Not to Wear screeching about the need for wide straps to um, balance her out visually. Not to mention to hide the straps of a very, VERY supportive bra.

Rita said...

Am still praying for mine to grow.

@rita - I would give you some of mine if I could.

For how long has Aretha been dating her boyfriend? I am lazy not looking it up, but will take someone's help as karma for me looking up the safety of eating oysters earlier in another thread.

@Rita--I have too much--wish I could give you just one of mine--you'd get two really nice breasteses out of it.

Rita said...

Aaaah Ladies, aren't you still full with the Christmas-giving spirit! Among other things;)

Not fair, if you guys have too much, and I have not enough, there should be a more equal distribution of wealth.

Oh go ahead and call me communist.

BTW, I believe Jessica Simpson is on her way to beating all high-heels-while-pregnant records.

Congrats Aretha!

Sherry said...

Wow..I am sure that she has a designer using some space age material that can hold up those amazing chichis with just a spaghetti strap. That being said congrats on engagement!

What a sense of humor, god bless her!

Cheryl said...

As long as he gives her R-E-S-P-E-C-T!

Was just thinking... I don't know when this photo is from, hope it's recent. She looks good here, looked dangerously obese a while back. Just a little redux in the front and she's good as new!
