National Enquirer Blind Item

Which handsome cable TV star refuses to marry his long-term girlfriend – whom he really does love – even after she gave him an ultimatum? The hunky actor just isn’t the marrying type – he’d rather booze it up, hang with his buddies and concentrate on his career, rather than settle down! Who is he?

Jon Hamm/Jennifer Westfeldt

Miguela said...

Jon Hamm / Jennifer Westfeldt. They've been going out for 15 years. Girl if he hasn't put a ring on it now he's not putting one on it ever.

MISCH said...

Jon Hamm.....

Vicki Cupper said...

I thought he was regularly cheating on her, according to Lainey.

Leisa said...

Hamm

Frufra said...

Duh. I know nothing about nothing, and I know this one.

The Black Cat said...

Why bother with an ultimatum? Actions speak louder than words IMO and she's not getting it.

I saw Kathy Griffin live a couple of weeks ago and she told a long story about being at a dinner party with Jon Hamm, who was roaring drunk and started talking about how old she looked (if you know Kathy, you realize that's a great way to make an enemy out of her!). I have seen other references to his "boozing it up." Sounds like he might be abusing alcohol and need help.

Vicki Cupper said...

I'm losing my Hamm love if any of this is true. It just ain't kosher.

joymama said...

Don't watch much tv but isn't his show on network tv?

I'm going with Mike Rowe, the dirty jobs guy.

Vicki Cupper said...

Mad Men is on AMC which is cable.

AKM said...

I can't stand Kathy Griffin, so I don't blame Jon for having to be roaring drunk to get through a dinner party with her. ;-)

This doesn't kill MY love for him. Some of us just don't want to get married. Jennifer should either deal or leave. It's been over a decade, after all. *shrug*

bobbi_1025 said...

Never watched Mad Men but even I knew it was him.

Frufra said...

@Vicki, you mean the boozing Kathy Griffin stuff or what? What's not kosher?

I would have LOVED to be privvy to the Griffin/Hamm dinner party convo. That woman is a hoot - a hoot, I tell ya!!

Diane said...

Hamm & girlfriend of 15 yrs where in the photos yesterday ... so I'm on the hamm train too

Amber said...

If after 15 years they are STILL not on the same relationship path, Jessica may just need to suck it up and make a tough decision to move on so she can find fulfillment.

Vicki Cupper said...

Frufra, that and the cheating stuff.

Also I was trying to be punny. Kosher, ham, haha. :)

Danielle said...

Mario Lopez?

Amber said...

I mean Jennifer. Not Jessica. In my head I was thinking about how maybe she should go the way of her character in Kissing Jessica Stein for a bit. :)

trudi said...

Jennifer Westfeldt needs to have a chat with Justin Theroux's ex girlfriend

dizzyeggs said...

not a blind...? hasn't he stated pretty often in interviews that he wasn't the marrying kind? if the ring thing were important to his longtime mate, she would leave, so obviously she's okay with it. not all vaginas are concerned with weddings. for seven years, i didn't marry mr. eggs until we had a hiccup in our insurance provider with regards to our oldest kids birth and vaccs. if unified health care were around back then, i don't think we would have gone to the judge. insurance companies are bastards. *sorry...it's HOT and i'm grumpy*

nolachickee said...

He's still in my Top 5. I'd be happy shacking up with that one.

Frufra said...

My bad, Vicki. Any time's the right time for puns - I should have caught that :-).

Trying to think of a return pun for you, but I got nothing. Maybe my slow brain will come up with something witty in an hour or two.

Brian said...

I don't know who he is, but I do know that he is a very wise man.

jane3113 said...

She could leave him, but how do you date another man after dating Jon Hamm for 15 years?

Jihane-Fatim said...

Jon Hamm. duh.

Ms.Happenstance said...

Donald Draper

creeposaurusrex said...

Friends with kids was such a great movie. Jennifer westfeldt wrote and starred in it. She talented and funny AND pretty. She needs to recognize! He ain't all that!

timebob said...

People need to remember that Jennifer was with Jon since he was a cater waiter. She isn't with him for the money or fame she just loves him. I don't think she cares if they are married or not. Maybe NE would label it as them, but I don't think it's them except for the boozing and career part.

Jon only hit fame at 35. He wants to live it up. Jennifer will be there waiting no doubt.

Henriette said...

Jonn Ham

Molls said...

Jon Ham-BONE. :)

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Not even blind...

Del Riser said...

I'm with @joymama and Mike Rowe, he is hunky, they have dated for at least fifteen years and I think he does love her. No scandals, that I know of, just no ring on the left hand either.

Popnursing said...

I'm with Trudi - Hamm will be one of those guys who marries the next chick within 6mos if/when he & Westfeldt break-up. (Oh man, I hope I'm the next chick...)

Lola said...

Jon Hamm and I went to the same school in St Louis (he's a bit younger though).

Lola said...

Huh, apparently we went to the same university too.

Clearly, we are destined.

AKM said...

Lola, you're from STL? John Burroughs? :-)

AmericanScrewball said...

Who cares if they don't get married? He's been in it for 15 years. Most men get bored after 7. If it is Jon Hamm, that Jennifer has nothing to worry about. He isn't going to leave her. At the height of his success, I"m sure he could have left if he wanted too. Marriage is just a piece of paper. Elizabeth Taylor had eight pieces of paper. A ring doesn't mean squat. Pardon my french.

The Black Cat said...

My aunt married a guy who flirts and acts up at public events. She just turns away and looks elsewhere when it happens. She accepted this was a part of who he was years ago and could have easily left him but she stuck it out.
He must have other redeeming qualities as I'm sure Mr Hamm does.

Lola said...

Yes, and Univ. of Texas. I was class of 86 and JH was class of 89. I moved before the end of HS though, so didn't graduate from there. He's in the alumni news regularly.

AKM said...

Yes, but he left TX to come back to Mizzou, don't forget. He graduated from there, actually. (Not that I'm a Mizzou fan. Just a Hamm fan.)

Lola said...

Yes. Mizzou is my sister's alma mater. (see, the tenuous connections abound)

He left UT when his dad died.

faye said...

if you liked it then you should have put a ring on it. simple.

Hendrix said...

Hamm's a guy's guy alright; and pretty well known to be a drinker, which is such a shame. I'd guess a functional alcoholic. Talk about looking old - it's already starting to affect his good looks. Jennifer will move on and in a few years, if he ever gets sober, he'll regret it the rest of his life.

But no matter what they decide to do with their relationship, when someone mouths off like that when drunk, it's a sign they're losing some level of control. He may be A list on TV but not in movies yet...and he could lose his shot if he doesn't clean up his act.

Just saying, Jon...you've got it all in the palm of your hand, buddy. Don't throw it all away.

FrenchGirl said...

Hamm

FrenchGirl said...

@Vicky Cupper: Lainey also says Jake Guyllenhal is straight and blames Kiki Dunst for their break-up (it's probably why Dunst became insane after their break-up)

i don't know if Hamm is a cheater but i know he loves to party (when he was in Cannes festival ,he was in every party with his girlfriend), very friendly and enjoyed his moment

WUWT? said...

Really, Frufra, no puns? Not even: What a pig!


Also, OT, Welcome back AKM! I really did miss you around here.

Frufra said...

WUWT? - there you go! I had to go be an accountant, so I had to back burner the fun. Thanks for picking up the slack, friend :-).

Jennmcn said...

She just seems super mousey to me and if The Hamm is doing what we hear he is. He is bored and she's a doormat with a bad nose job and odd looking cheeks. I don't care much about him anymore.

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

Oh my, I never knew Jon Hamm was at UT. I might have crossed paths w him on more than one occasion! I was there from 1980-1990 (after finishing school, I worked on campus for a few yrs).

AKM said...

@WUWT? - Holy cow! In the words of Eeyore, thanks for noticing me. ;-)

Megerz said...

Hendrix, I agree with what you said. Hamm is gorgeous and reminds me of a young William Holden type (yeah, I watch a lot of old TCM movies). William Holden was also a notorious hard drinker and it zapped his good looks too.

I could not stand the movie Friends With Kids. Jennifer W. was painful to watch and she was in mostly every frame. I kept fixating on how she messed with her face and couldn't even move her lips properly to say the lines. The best and funniest actors in that movie were totally underutilized.

Lelaina Pierce said...

@Megerz - I just saw FWK about a month ago and it didn't live up to the hype for me either, especially the ending. Sigh. I agree completely about Jennifer's plastic surgery. I wish she hadn't messed with her face.

I think I've read both JH/JW have both said they didn't feel the need to marry OR have kids, so I don't know why she would change her mind?
