Honestly, I would have thought Ms. Kardashian was a shoe-in at 10 weeks, but, no, Sinead O'Connor has to go and one-up her with a 16-day-long marriage.

All I gotta say is *whew* - we really dodged a bullet this year in not letting those gays marry in most states, and really ruining the sanctity of marriage. whistle

Sinead is claiming altruism here:

Quote:
On Monday, just over two weeks after her Dec. 8 wedding with Barry Herridge, O’Connor wrote: “Dear friends, I had for reasons u will all understand, wished to keep this private but have been told today it is to be leaked in the next few days despite my best efforts. So I must now leak it myself so as the record is straight … From the moment myself and my husband got together not long ago, there was intense pressure placed upon him by certain people in his life, not to be involved with me. These were people who had never met me but had formed opinions of me based on what they read about ‘Sinead ‘O’Connor’ in the media etc. Entitled as they are to their opinions about me many perhaps well deserved, there was no righteousness on anyone’s part to put my husband through what he was put through as a result of his desire to be with me and to marry me and as a result of his actually marrying me.”

O’Connor continues, claiming the marriage was ruined by “certain people in my husband’s life,” and ” also by a bit of a wild ride i took us on looking for a bit of a smoke of weed for me wedding night as I don’t drink. My husband was enormously wounded and very badly effected by that experience and also by the attitude of those close to him toward our marriage.” Following their short time together, O’Connor thus decided that “being with me was not going to serve him positively , career wise or any other wise. I saw his life leave him because of how people close to him reacted. And I can’t take anyone’s life. And a woman wants to be a joy to her husband. So.. U love someone? Set them free.”

The singer, however, is still fond of her soon-to-be ex-husband. Said O’Connor on her website, “He is a wonderful man. I love him very much. I’m sorry I’m not a more regular woman. I truly believe though it is painful to admit, we made a mistake rushing into getting married, for altruistic reasons, and weren’t aware or prepared for the consequences on my husband’s life and the lives of those close to him. He has been terribly unhappy and I have therefore ended the marriage. I think he is too nice to do so. And too nice to trap.”

I read the title of this thread, and my first thought was, "There's still time!"

Maybe she's is such a ratbag that its for teh best he is not married to her (and there does seem to be a hint of this in her statement).

Yeah, I gotta say, 16 days is definitely a very competitive entry into the competition, but the whole 'altruism' part of it really knocks some points off.

The Kardashian thing you have to give some bonus scoring to for the pure acrimony (complete with MULTIPLE lawsuits!) generated in only 10 weeks. I mean, that's gotta double her points, easily.

I also have to ask - does Sinead still qualify as a celebrity?

Why is it so difficult for some people to type "you"? I swear, every other celebrity post goes the single letter route. Are they trying to blend in with the current generation? Did they always write it as just one letter? This is the real story here.
