WTF Is An Engaged Glow?


I have heard of pregnancy glows and post sex glow and bacon glow, but I have yet to ever hear of engagement glow, especially when no one is sure there is an engagement. Since US Weekly invested a cover into telling all of us that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are engaged they are going to pound that into my head and your head and every head they can and find any possible way to put it into an article just so they look good.


They ran a quick blurb and photo of Jessica Biel and said, "There's still no ring to gawk at, but Jessica Biel has definitely got that newly engaged glow!"

Seriously? And they can tell this from a photo because that is all they were looking at. They wrote the article just so they could use that sentence. The only other sentence in the article is describing what she is wearing which is presumably to describe to you, the reader, who may have some type of problem seeing photos despite being able to read the article what exactly Jessica is wearing in the photo.

In a Katy Perry article they wrote, Katy and Russell are divorcing, but Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are getting married. This is the circle of life.

In an article about Rachael Ray they wrote, Rachael Ray had Jessica Alba on her show, but really wanted Jessica Biel so they could talk about her engagement to Justin Timberlake.

Even in an article about politics, they managed to get it in. In describing the debate last night between GOP hopefuls, they said that all the candidates seemed distracted and were all probably wondering when Jessica Biel would debut her new engagement ring.

Who cares. Etta James died.

EmEyeKay said...

That doesn't look like Jessica. Had to look three times.

Pookie said...

that's an awful lot of jt/jb placement & plant...either it's a slow news wk, or one of the publicists is working overtime wondering hth to milk this non-story and keep it alive.

Himmmm said...

That's good Enty. I laughed so hard Pepsi shot out of my nose. Who knew an entire media group could beard for two actors? Oh wait...everybody knows that I guess. Which is why we pay publicists so damn much!

@Vickie - NOOOOO. Really? :(

DixieTheNoble82 said...

Oops, I apologize, @Vicki ... no e. Putting 'use spell-check' on reminder list.

No prob. :)

Yeah I just got a CNN email.

DixieTheNoble82 said...

Sad news, thanks for the heads up.

She was one hell of a woman & will be missed I'm sure.

Kari said...

Awww Etta James died. More sad news.

figgy said...

Etta James died??! Now THAT is sad.

In my fevered imagination, Etta was going to sing "At Last" at my wedding. ;-) LOVED her, have many of her albums.

figgy said...

WHY are they even bothering to do this? Justin Timberlake, if he is indeed gay (not sure), would STILL have a very good career if he came out. It's celebs of his fame-caliber that can really help make "being gay" not such a big deal by coming out.

IF he's gay, no idea.

Jessica? Does she even have a career? Either way, coming out wouldn't hurt her a bit, only help.

RIP Etta. She fought a brave battle in her last years. I hope she is a peace. Her voice and songs she sang are forever.

Seachica said...

Etta James died. She didn't even live long enough to see Jessica Biel's engagement ring.

Not to be a shallow girl but there is such thing as an engagement glow. When I got engaged, I was on cloud nine and my now husband had a pass for a couple of months. Then it went away and I'd get mad when he'd get water all over the bathroom counter and leave Coke cans everywhere, etc.

Maja. With a J. said...

I, too, had a glow after being proposed to. Possibly because he proposed while in bed. TMI? Probably. But you had to know...I'm just THAT GOOD.

Vicki Cupper said...

lol

parissucksliterally said...

Bullshit she would not be wearing that ring everywhere....and SHE is gay. Maybe he goes both ways, but she was outed years ago. she just never talks about it. She certainly does not have to.

anita_mark said...

@Maja, you always make me laugh.

Mango said...

The Jessicas are pretty interchangeable. I don't know which one is more bland.

MISCH said...

Oh yeah, she would be shoving that ring in everyones face...everyone's...it's not as if Justin can't afford to buy a fantastic rock...
And she is a lesbian ....

bluebird said...

Could you imagine if Jessica Biel and Amber Heard got together. They could get publicity for that, if publicity is the problem.

Texshan said...

Seachica, that made me laugh through near-tears. So sad about Etta James. Now THAT was a celebrity worth getting excited about. The assorted Jessicas in the world are just so boring and interchangeable. Etta was one of a kind.

Lioness70 said...

Who cares? If this was indeed cooked up by their publicists, we'll never see a ring. Life goes on.

So sad about Etta James. Now THERE was real, raw talent. Not 99 percent of the "celebrities" who make headlines.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

I watched the GOP South Carolina debate last night, and I'd say they were distracted because Ron Paul made the most sense. And why is Newt still there?

RocketQueen said...

lol Maja!

nolachickee said...

Is she glowing? Well, she's pasty. Kind of frumpy. No, not glowing.

@Maja - go on with your bad self, woman!

Enty - bacon glow has made my day.

Rose said...

I don't think Justin is gay but he is definitely not engaged.

feraltart said...

Just got my passport renewed yesterday, and as you are not allowed to smile in your photos, I continue my run of looking like a drug lord with my hard stone face. My hair and makeup look really good though. No glowing on my part, I only glow when I am on holiday.

anita_mark said...

@Feral, I have passport photos that look like the mugshot of a meth head. I keep them in my wallet as a reminder of how bad I can look when I don't try.

zeldafitzgerald said...

My mom had a divorced glow. You'd never seen anyone so excited and so free.

Mooshki said...

Figgy, Justin isn't gay, he just likes to screw around with random chicks, and Jessica gives him respectability and publicity. So technically, she isn't a beard.

DixieTheNoble82 said...

Get it, @Maja!

Lelaina Pierce said...

I'd like to work in the office of one of these rags for a week, just to see how they come up with this stuff.

OT: I was wondering the other day where Courtney Stodden shopped & based on the ads on the sidebar, I'm gonna say there. Holy hell.
