Blind Items Revealed


May 30, 2007

This lead singer from a holier-than-thou-art family has had at least three #1 hits. Friends and family were expecting wedding invitations to show up soon. They were right because our singer had been busy making plans with his 5+ year girlfriend. Location booked, preacher reserved, the works. But isn't it weird that, when the invitations arrived, the bride's name was not that of the girlfriend everyone knew, but that of someone they had never met? Many chose not to attend the ceremony out of disapproval. All was made clear less than six months later when baby made three. Our singer had made the quick switch of brides when his very controlling, behind the scenes father hit him below the belt -- in the pocket. Seems our singer had the choice of marrying the girl he had been secretly seeing or being disowned and losing out on the family money. He chose the former and poor girlfriend got left behind.

It seems enough begging and pleading kept most mouths shut while he played devoted husband and father for a few years, the adoring wife completely oblivious to the existence of poor girlfriend. However, when it became obvious to the rest of the family that he just can't stop his wandering eye, vengeful little sister let adoring wife in on how the elaborate shotgun wedding had been planned so quickly -- she was the only detail that was added at the last minute. Now, adoring wife has made arrangements to meet girlfriend. Whether it will be a cat fight or a pity party is yet to be seen, but it doesn't look good for our husband of the year. Do I smell "irreconcilable differences"?

Og Mmm bop fame? That one?

PuggleWug said...

Art family?

PamMo said...

The big meeting must have been uneventful, because he's still married to Wife #1 and they have five kids.

rejectedcarebear said...

WOAH. 3 girls I know will be upset.

Jenn said...

If you Google his name, he was married in 2002, so why is this blind from 2007?? They have 5 kids now and are still married.

Hanson had 3 #1 hits? That annoying MMM Bop song is the only song of their's I'm even slightly familiar with, thankfully. And I'm never surprised when these sorts of things come to light on people like this. Not ever.

Hanson had 3 #1 hits?

Yikes. Now I'm glad I stick with my classic Yes collection and 80's cheese music.

ABlake said...

Haha jinx PA :)

Snoopy said...

Jenn - the reason it is dated 2007 is because that is when the wife actually found out about the girlfriend and how she was a substitute wife to the wedding.

dragon said...

Who? one of the Hanson brothers?

Jcool said...

As far as i can tell in no way did Hanson have 3 #1 hits. MMMBop went #1, I will Come For You went #9 and This Time Around was #20. That is it for top 40 success.

liliesrnice said...

that's just a good gossip story, even if the people involved aren't as "in" as they used to be.

ureallyannoyme said...

The Hanson family is rich? I had no idea. I always thought they were like the Phoenix family. Cult children, home schooled, dirt poor. Shrug.

Isa said...

Wasn't the girlfriend singer Michelle Branch? She had a lot of very angry music out around that time and it was reported to be about Taylor. (I think the biggest song was "Are You Happy Now?")

Redd said...

How old does a Hanson have to be before he can make his own life decision?

KaySea said...

I found articles related to this ... she was 18, he was 19 when they got married, but everything says they were dating for 2 years prior. Although there was speculation that she was pregnant at the wedding.

ureallyannoyme said...

Redd, I think the better question is how much money does it take to let yourself be controlled.

19 yo Taylor must have been a cheap date.

Really, Isa? I didn't know they dated.

g.strathmore said...

Disappointing.

Geegmarie said...

I don't know about this one- there are pictures of him and his wife from years before they were married. I wouldn't think his secret gf would be so blatantly in sight.

Isa said...

@Sugar I've been trying to find something about Michelle and him but can't find anything but rumors. I remember reading something a long time ago, but no idea where. She opened for them for awhile.

Colleen said...

Man all of these blinds are so old school, it's awesome! It's crazy to read all of these, then some of the new ones and see how much the blind items have evolved (yet the bad behavior hasn't).

FrenchGirl said...

Taylor met his future wife in august 2000 ,he's married since june 2002 nand has 5 kids (the first kid in oct 2002)with his wife and the real rumor was that Taylor was gay Hanson gay rumor and Zac is married with Kate Tucker (who is Nathalie's best friend)

my sister was a huge huge fan of the band and she hated Nathalie (Taylor's wife) Taylor wedding
Taylor's wife was his notorious girlfriend since 2000 so this BI is a no-sense

FrenchGirl said...

@isa: the ex-girlfriend

Isa said...

@FrenchGirl Thanks! That makes sense. I have no idea where I heard the Michelle Branch rumor.

At least this has reminded me to listen to Michelle Branch's music more often.

Izzie Marceaux said...

I was thinking wow, retro H'wood Donny Osmond!

I met Michelle Branch when she was on tour for her first album. Perks of pre-conglomerate radio job!

Shocky said...

Hanson are still making music. My friend was an extra in a video a few months ago

Ima Guillotine said...

Michelle Branch also dated John Mayer...poor girl really can't pick 'em.

Christopher Cruz said...

Those boys need haircuts.

Jacq said...

+1

Anna Nonymous said...

more scum, way to ride nice hair and an extremely basic song. mmmbop, oh yeah mmmbop doo doo do dooo mmmbop mmm yeah. yeah yeah yeahhhhhh and repeat.

Rose said...

Didn't the Hanson kids make their own money?

PARangersGirl said...

LOL ABlake, we must've hit enter at exactly the same time!

Mango said...

Taylor's the cute one, right?

I once saw an ep of Cribs and the tall goofy one and the small one shared a really cool loft apartment in (I think) NYC. I think they're all married with children now.

Kate said...

I love when Enty's blinds are obvious lies. I always hope it will make more people realize that he's not legit. (Yes, I'm here too, but only because I like seeing him make a fool of himself.)

EleanorRigby said...

This just seems... off. Don't get me wrong, when my classmates were freaking out about Hanson, I was NOT on that bandwagon. But what money? Surely Hanson made a lot of money as a trio? The only way that this blind makes sense to me if is the parents had sole access to the teenybopper Hanson fame. But that is flimsy. Also, "art" family? I have never heard the words art and Hanson together. It just seems like, "Uhh... who could I make this blind about?" which makes me sad, because I read everyday. :(

Nutty_Flavor said...

@Eleanor, I don't think anyone's calling the Hanson family an "art" family. "Thou art" is the archaic 2nd person singular form of English for "you are." In other words "holier-than-you-are" in modern English.

phoenix said...

@Eleanor, yeah I think it's off too, and not just for monetary reasons. If they were married by a Justice Of The Peace, this blind could conceivably jive, but ministers and priests just don't allow for spur of the moment, last minute spousal changes. Also, Taylor dated a Krystal Winfry whom he met in 1998 for awhile, then dated Michelle Branch whom he met after her, and then dated Natalie Bryant whom he met after Michelle and eventually married. I can't find anything about a girl he dated for as long as 5 years. He was only 19 when he got married.

phoenix said...

Another stretch.. Natalie didn't notice that many of the invitees didn't show up for her wedding and needed a "vengeful little sister" to point it out to her years later as evidence that something wasn't right?

uh huh.

C Parker said...

Michelle Branch's entire Hotel Paper album is about TH. Every single song. I know that for 100% fact.

Ari said...

his wife is ugly, i would have a wondering eye too and just keep knocking her up

Mae Day said...

They were also married in GA, where Natalie is from. So if the venue and everything was already picked, that was really convenient for her. lol
