Are Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds already fighting over Blake’s wandering eye?

Does anyone feel like Blake Lively is drifting around, waiting for her next “project”? She spent a year making this Ryan Reynolds thing happen – and she not only got the ring (a huge pink diamond), but she got her fancy wedding too, and she got it on her terms. But does Blake ever have second thoughts about putting all of that effort into landing… Ryan Reynolds…? I mean, is he that big of a catch? Maybe to her. Maybe to some ladies. Anyway, I think Blake’s next “project” is going to be pregnancy and motherhood, followed by a glamorous (and yet “down to earth”) family life in New York for a bit. Blake is going to put her focus into that for a few years, and then after that… who knows?

Here’s what I don’t think: I don’t think Blake is a back-slider. Once she’s moved on from someone, she never looks back. So while her relationship with Penn Badgley served its purpose, she moved on in a hurry and didn’t look back. Of course, Blake and Penn still had to work together on Gossip Girl. Which might have caused some jealousy with Ryan?

Just two months after his highly romantic wedding to Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds is acting more like the green-eyed monster! Sources tell Star that Ryan, 36, lashed out at Blake, 25, after spotting his new bride getting chummy with her ex Penn Badgley. The Gossip Girl costars have stayed friends since they broke up two years ago, yet photos of them laughing and hugging at the show’s wrap party proved too much for Ryan to handle.

“He and Blake got into a huge fight about her being so touchy with Penn,” says our insider. “Ryan told Blake that he broke off all contact with Scarlett Johansson after they split, and he expects the same from her. She doesn’t see it that way, though – she still cares about Penn as a friend, and she’s not back down.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

On one side, I’ve heard that Ryan is a jealous guy, so I could believe that there’s some truth to this. I also think there’s a decent chance that Scarlett Johansson fooled around on him, and like so many men that get cheated on, Ryan might have brought those issues into his relationship with Blake. But on Blake’s side… I just don’t think she’s doing anything wrong or untoward. She was just hanging out with a friend/costar/ex at the wrap party, and she’ll probably never see Penn again. Besides, Penn has a girlfriend now too – the lovely Zoe Kravitz.

PS… No, I don’t know when Blake and Ryan’s wedding photos will be coming out in Martha Stewart Weddings. It’s supposed to be the December issue, so I guess it will be out very soon.

    I think Blake is gonna go all “lifestyle brand” like the Goopster. Kiddies and cupcake cookbooks out soon!

  2. normades says:

    Oops, where’d my comment go?

    Just to say again I think Blake is gonna try to be the new Martha Stewart and go “lifestyle brand” (like Goop). Cupcake cookbooks and kiddies coming soon!

    • Amelia says:

      If she does, it’s going to bomb.
      From what I’ve heard, Goop has a (relatively) respectable number of people who are interested in her lifestyle stuff, but that’s only because she’s already had a successful career and an Oscar. She’s been a well known personality for years which is a pretty damn good stepping stone.
      Whereas Blake has had very little success at the box office (critically, at least) and she’s really only known within the 15-25 demographic.
      How many girls within that age group are going to be interested in baking/sowing patterns coming from a lacklustre actress? Most are going to be focussing on going to Uni/college and getting a job. I mean, I like to bake and have fun in the kitchen but I really couldn’t care less about how to be the perfect homemaker.
      ‘scuse the long post, I’ve been reading Freakonomics today and sorting out our books :)

      • LAK says:

        love Freakonomics. It’s hilarious.

      • Justyna says:

        I’ve started reading Freakonomics yesterday. Great book, my kind of humour so far.

        I’m 23, so within the mentioned demographic and I sometimes look for some cooking/home decor stuff but I would never spent my money on anything offered or written by Blake Lively (‘s ghost writer). Or GOOP’s, but I get why she is somewhat successful. GP is rich, spoiled elitist and she doesn’t pretend to be anything else. She makes her clients feel like they are part of that GOOPy elite by following her expensive recipes, cleansing every other month and buying her overpriced gift paper or ugly clothes in the size 8 or less. Lively wants to be seen as a normal, young, down-to-earth housewife and there are too many books/sites offering just that – homemaking for your average housewife. Nothing special about that and huge flop in the making if she has any interest in that area, of course.

  3. lori says:

    Scorpio dudes are jealous types anyway. Don’t break up before the wedding photos are out, that’d be such a Kardashian thing to do. NO way would Blake do that.

    • aims says:

      Scorpios are very jealous! I fell in love with a scorpio, and everything was on point, everything….. except he was really controlling. I’m also a virgo, like blake. Its a shame, because I really would had married him, if he wasn’t always so suspicious of everything.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        My abuser was a Scorpio. I can vouch for the jealousy thing.

      • lori says:

        I’ve been with/married too my Scorpio for 15 years. He still brings up the guy I dated in college before I met him.

      • bluhare says:

        I’m a scorpio and I’m not violent. Not jealous either.

      • Bodhi says:

        So was mine, OBella, I’m sure that there are many lovely Scorpio men out there, but, after my experience, I try to steer as clear of them as I can. I married a Gemini (I’m one too) & while we definitely have issues arise, there is never any violence or emotional abuse

      • Miss M says:

        My ex is a scorpio and he is jealous. He was jealous the way I talked to my mom, I seemed happier talking to my mom than talking to him, etc…

      • mercy says:

        What if he’s a Libra? Could go either way depending on time zone. And why is it ok to stereotype people by astrological sign anyway?

      • Snooze says:

        Wow. Seriously? I cannot believe that you, and all of the people replying to you are seriously judging people by their star sign. Wha t a load of *#%^. My Nanna and aunt are obsessed with astrology and numerology. So much so that they told my mother when I was a baby that I’d be “one for the boys” and that I’d lead a charmed life. No one explained this to me until I was an adult so I didn’t understand why my sister and cousins got better treatment than I did from those two relatives (my charmed life meant I didn’t need as much help) and why I got the “we’re worried you’re turning into a slut” talk when I was 14. All of that stuff is an absolute crock of sh*t. You can apply anything to yourself or others if you want to believe it.

      • BestJess says:

        @Snooze, completely agree. Do people really think that an AIDS orphan in Botswana and a rich Manhattan socialite share any commonalities simply by dint of being born at a certain time of year? Do people really think being born around ‘Scorpio’ time means you’ll be more prone to jealousy or control freakery than someone born in ‘Libra’ time? What complete and utter nonsense. Does nobody learn science anymore?

    • Elizabeth says:

      So you are basically saying no Scorpios then? Duly noted. Hmmmmmmmmm.

    • Erinn says:

      Engaged to mine, will have dated for 8 years next month. He doesn’t have a jealous bone in his body.

    • stellalovejoydiver says:

      Astrology doesn´t make any sense to me. So ALL men and women who happened to be born between otober 24th and november 22nd are supposed to have the same character traits?!

      • Lauren says:

        I was married to a Scorpio..he chased me, worshipped me, married me, cheated on me, yelled at me, controlled me, abused me. Very extreme personality. Frightening. Divorced him. Scorpios are very extreme and intense. They want to chase & conquer. Then become bored. Never Again. There is a statistical-scientific basis to horoscopes, study the facts & you will understand. I believe RR is possessive,jealous & controlling. Why does RR keep marrying flirty-sexy blonds? Chase-conquer-marry-jealousy cycle is repeating itself.

      • mercy says:

        Thank you. I find astrology interesting, but I draw the line at ascribing negative traits and bad behaviour by astrological signs. It makes no more sense to me than stereotyping by hair colour. Lay the reponsibility where it belongs: with the individual, not their sign or to everyone who shares it.

      • tmbg says:

        I’m a Scorpio and will admit it’s exhausting. You’re always fighting the suspicions in your mind, the desire for everything to be just so, the mood swings and other crap that is noted for this sign.

        I do know a lot of my issues are related to severe anxiety, but I also fit a lot of those Scorpio traits.

      • Pippa says:

        Completely off base for the original article I know but I read this interesting study which basically was arguing that astrological signs do sometimes have a little weight behind them (partially because of the whole self-fulfilling prophecy idea) but mostly because they correlate to how old people were when they started school, e.g. scorpios would be almost a year older than some people in their class(a big difference at that age) and as such are at first generally quite a way ahead of in terms of things like reading, writing and drawing, and so become adjusted to a level of high achievement, confidence and getting what they want – so when that is taken away from them as the other kids catch up it can be quite unnerving and angering which in the long term could lead to behavioural traits like jealously. Idk, obviously it’s to be taken with a pinch of salt and every individual is different but I found it interesting and it makes a hell of a lot more sense to me than the the whole you are who you are because of the moon and stars thing.

    • Good_as_Gold says:

      I do have to agree with all the peeps that say alot of scorpio people are controlling and jealous. My ex was the most controlling person I knew and the most suspicious. If he didn’t get what he wanted, or felt one of his suspicious urges he would resort to emotional abuse and trying to reduce my self-esteem through jibes, insults and personal attacks on myself and my friends. I was never up to any mischief, but on nights out with my friends (that he couldn’t be bothered to come along to) he tried to ruin them with acusations, suspicions and outright anger of what I might be up to. He got to the point where he said I needed to cut certain friends out of my life and deactivate facebook if we wanted to continue. He even told me one time he wanted me to ‘stop going out’ (lol- not even joking).
      I’m a piscean, and we are ordinarily gentle little things that tolerate a lot, but even I couldn’t handle this!

  4. Mia 4S says:

    Yeah I agree she’ll go the “home decor”/”mommy pimp” route to staying relevant. It’s the viable option when you are not a good enough actress; Jessica Simpson and Jessica Alba have made it an art.

    I’ve always wondered why Gwenyth does it though? She’s admittedly not very relevant now outside of Iron Man but she is also not poor. So…why?

    • Hautie says:

      “I’ve always wondered why Gwenyth does it though? She’s admittedly not very relevant now outside of Iron Man but she is also not poor. So…why? …”
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      Honestly. I still suspect her Husband stopped her allowance.

      After the millions of dollars spent on that home in London. I suspect she might have been told. No more money.

      I really think she got told… if she wanted to spend ridiculous money. For dumb sh*t, like an open fire pizza oven for the back yard. She would have to pay for it herself.

      So she went back to work.

      From tv shows like Glee… misc movies… to the cookbooks… to hocking packaged salads/vegetables sold at the grocery stores in Europe.

      Goop has been all over the place.

      And she is still out there hustling.

      So I fully expect to see Goop even more in the next year.

      Since she recently purchased that home in LA. I bet she is out there measuring for another open fire pizza oven for the backyard in LA. :)

    • mercy says:

      Because she genuinely enjoys it? I’m not a GOOP fan, but she’s not the only person who enjoys blogging about her “finds” and sharing what she’s learned in her life and travels. She just has a much larger audience. It’s probably easy money, too.

      Blake might go that route, but I can’t see her pulling a Jessica Alba, where the kids are papped all the time for her business.

  5. Sheila says:

    He is likely VERY jealous, being a Scorpio (my Mom is one), they occasionally have big fights of jealousy with their partners, even when it’s harmless or a coworker.

    I agree she is going the Mommy, then cupckage cookbook route. I can see her doing a Martha Stewart type of show down the road too. She certainly doesn’t have the acting chops to compete with others in her age group. Her acting will go the Jennifer Alba/Garner route where being a Mom is all they are known for after awhile.

    As for Goop, not sure why she does it because she can act and has talent, she doesn’t need to schleep stuff like others do.

  6. Birdie says:

    This girl can go far. I mean, when she has a goal, she will do anything to achieve that. So my guess is that she will either go the blockbuster/franchise road or the indie/serious movies going for an oscar road. Or both. People might not take her seriously yet, (yeah she is no acting genius, but Julia Roberts wasn’t either) but we will see more of her. And I don’t even like her though.

  7. Ria says:

    Scarlett fooled around on him? More like he fooled around on her. He cheated on Alanis with Jessica Biel while they were filming that Blade movie when he was still engaged to Alanis. Really, not much of a prize at all.

  8. Dani says:

    As her HUSBAND I think he has every right to be jealous/mad. Especially since Penn is her ex and at one point in their lives they loved each other etc. I don’t think your horoscope depends on it. I’m a Virgo and I wouldn’t be too pleased if my husband talked to his ex; nothing to do with jealousy, it’s just…what do you need from your ex that you need to talk? I get that Penn and Blake work together, but you could keep your distance regardless. I’m sure if the roles were reversed and Ryan was still in contact with Scarlett while married to Blake, everyone would call him a dirty liar/cheater/womanizer etc etc.

    • aims says:

      I’m a virgo as well, I’d be very uncomfortable with my husband staying in contact with his ex. If were in a social situation, and their paths crossed, a little hello wouldn’t bother me. Now if she would be all rubbing and hands on with him, id be pissed. Its fine to be polite, it’s not ok going down memory lane.

      • Calimero says:

        I’m a virgo and I don’t care if my man continues to have friendly relationships with his ex, I stayed myself on good terms with some of my ex and with one in particular, we see each other regularly, we are very good friends in fact nothing more, nothing less.

      • Dani says:

        Aims, I completely agree. There’s no reason to stay friendly with an ex. If you still wanted to be friends, you wouldn’t have broke up.

        I feel like it’s different if your husband/wife still talks to their ex, and when your boyfriend/girlfriend talks to their ex. Like you’re married, what could you possibly gain from being friendly with your ex besides issues with your husband?

    • mercy says:

      Penn and Blake haven’t been seen socialising outside of the show since they broke up. Their relationship seems to only exist in the pages of The Star and fan fic.

    • Lucy says:

      Plenty of people stay friendly with their ex, especially if they were friends before. I wouldn’t even tolerate someone coming into my life after the fact telling me who I can and can’t talk to. That’s selfish and come off as controlling. You would have to be an extremely insecure, clingy, needed person to get pissed simply b/c your significant other communicates with an ex.

      Unless your partner has given you a reason not to trust them, you should. Be secure in your relationship and don’t nag your partner to death just because you don’t have a firm grip on your self esteem issues.

      • Pia says:

        ITA, all I see in the posts above is insecurity and jealousy. I’ll be damned if my husband decides which old friends I stay in contact with, and I have no issue with him maintaining a completely harmless friendship with an ex.

        “There’s no reason to stay friendly with an ex. If you still wanted to be friends, you wouldn’t have broke up.” WTF? There’s no such thing as being better off as “just friends”?? I’m still friends with a guy I had a brief thing with in high school. There are certain things about him I HATE, that would prevent a successful relationship, but he’s still a good friend. My boyfriend and I TRUST each other, therefore take no issue with any sort of friend from the past.

      • Dani says:

        Insecurity and jealousy? No, chill out. You’re MARRIED, why do you need to stay in contact with exs? My husband doesn’t tell me who to talk to, and I don’t tell him either, but it’s an unspoken thing. Give me a few good reasons as to why you still need contact with your ex. Better off as friends? Never truly happens because someone still has feelings in there somewhere.

  9. Reece says:

    Why would the costumers put boots on those pants they are too cute to hide in suede!

  10. Aubra says:

    I aint buyin’ it! Old girl was on some game between Leo and then Ryan…not may like herself in Hollywood got it like that, she knows all too well that is the case and isn’t going to tarnish her short, yet impeccable record! LOL

  11. storyteller says:

    She’s a newlywed with a newly wrapped show spending time with her hubby away from the cameras and work. She and Ryan are just doing their usual traveling around the country incognito thing and why not? They’ve been spotted together lots of places. The STAR story sounds utterly ridiculous by the way, doesn’t even warrant discussion.

  12. Dawned says:

    Who would have thought that a guy as hot as Ryan Reynolds could be jealous? But I suppose when you marry someone as hot as Blake you would be constantly looking over your shoulder.

  13. AB says:

    This is off topic, but does anybody know what nail polish she has on in that second picture where she is showing off her ring? I really like it, it think it would be cute for spring/summertime.

  14. mike says:

    I think Blake’s becoming a homemaker not by choice, but by necessity. Her show’s ending and she’s had very indifferent movie career so far. Hardly the it girl that she was projected to be after Gossip Girl’s initial popularity.

    Plus, she’s the oldest 25 yr old (I think she’s supposed to be 25…) I’ve ever seen. I wouldn’t be surprised if she loses her look entirely in the next few years.

    Anyways, this story is funny. It’s rather ridiculous that gossip rags can’t keep their stories straight. I mean, isn’t Penn supposed to be gay? As is Zoe? Aren’t they supposed to be bearding for each other?

  15. Sara says:

    I think have a baby is the worst move ever for her.

  16. Barbara says:

    There were so many websites who said this article wasn’t true. Even the GossipCop thing. Not that I’d take other tabs (online or printed) over this one, but this is Star… let’s not forget they’ve been aiming on Blake/Ryan for a while, and even had printed one week prior to their wedding that they were fighting because Ryan was completely against marriage (that had been so funny, lol).
    So yeah, I don’t buy they had a huge fight over it, but I wouldn’t doubt Ryan was jealous about it. But then again, what’s the point? The show wrapped and Blake and Penn made out plenty of times (based on last episode and spoilers) after she got married. So I suppose Ryan won’t be watching any GG (I also think he didn’t watch Savages (as he didn’t go to any of the premieres with her, not even entering the event through the back door like he did in so many others), I think he’s that kind of jealous guy).
    I’m curious to see the photos in the magazine. I’m counting in a Marchesa disaster, but I have no doubts she looked beautiful. she rarely makes mistakes in her makeup and hair styling.

    As for her new goals, I think motherhood is definitely in the immediate plans. But I don’t have a clue what she plans to do after a few kids (I’m sure she’ll have one after the other, after the other…). She isn’t that relevant as an actress or fashion icon. I wonder if she won’t give up on her Hollywood career completely. This is a trend in her family after all.

  17. KellyinSeattle says:

    No offense to anyone, but I’m an astronomer, not at astrologer. I don’t give much weight to astrology. What’s with her pants in the last pic? They look like they belong in the circus. Like her boots, though. I think she’s very blah.

  18. alex says:

    Her ex is way hotter than her husband.

  19. erika says:

    she is so boring, CHOP the hair!

    does anyone else get the vibe that RR, Ryan, is kinda a soft douchee? he’s not a bad guy by any means, he’s just…kinda pathetic in a sweet way, but the light bulb isn’t on in the closet, it’s just sort of swaying back n’ fnorth….

  20. erika says:

    he’s boring…

    i’m going bck aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  21. peaches mcdooby says:

    the only book Flake should write is
    “Sleeping my way thru Hollywood’s B list”

    Ryan will reap what he sowed when he cheated on Alana, the only decent women he ever knew, and now all his wives will cheat to him.

    Karma don’t mess with it.

  22. lila says:

    She’s just so….meh. Tries WAY too hard.

  23. A says:

    Don’t buy it. Blake obviously wanted this happy homemaker life and she isn’t going to f it up…It’s not like she didn’t get to sow her wild oats, either (and I don’t mean that in a bitchy way). She’s been with a few different type of guys but obviously there was something about Ryan that drew her in.

    It’s weird..Blake has worked with Alan Arkin, was in an Oliver Stone film, and received pretty decent reviews for her acting in Hick. Yet her career has completely stalled…I thought she was so bland in Savages, but she was decent in Hick and that indie where she played the dead girl who came back to life. Meanwhile, Elizabeth Olsen has made something like six indies that all completely flopped (and flopped HARD) and is still getting work based off of one good performance in Mary Martha May Marlene.

  24. jay says:

    People of the same astrological sign have a strong tendency to have similar character traits. Scorpios tend to be intense, born detectives, have a high sex drive, etc. I don’t know about violence, that’s usually a learned behavior. People born on cusps (I am Taurus-Gemini) usually exhibit traits from both.

    With that said, I totally believe Ryan is paranoid. Cheaters are always suspicious of their mates. Also, considering how they were both in relationships when they got together, can you blame him? Yes, they were sleeping together while he was married, no he was not separated. Yes, he did cheat on Alanis w/ Biel and if the blind items are correct, he wanted to try again w/ Scarlett when she stopped seeing her bf (way before it was announced) but Blake pulled the “I may be pregnant, we have to go through with the wedding” card. He’ll find another 24 year old when he’s tired of her. Will she be like Garner & look the other way? We’ll see.

    • Lamont says:

      I don’t know anything of the Ryan/Alanis/Jessica Biel clusterfkuc (although since Scarlett was boffing video co star JT during and before one of his and Jessica’s many break ups she has no moral high ground on the subject of cheating)
      But the blind item with a guy with his foot out the door b4 his other half announced her pregnancy was a while back, and was widely believed to be about Ben Affleck/J Lo /Jennifer G.
      Blake would have at least been showing by now if it were her and she was allegedly pregnant since spring no?

      The more recent BI about a guy been forced(?) into surprise marriage, have JT/Jessica and Ryan/Blake as the top suspects. However since Blake and Ryan bought a home together in April (in Blake’s name only and thru Ryan trust) although it was denied at the time – and have been cris-crossing USA and Canada meeting each others families and spending EVERY second together it was pretty apparent where this was heading (although way way too fast imp). Ditto JT and Biel who were engaged and showing the carats a good ten months b4 tying the knot.
      No one actually knows how long Ryan and Blake were engaged for. I imagine the wedding was a surprise to us gossip afficionados not the couple.
      What I’m saying is that these actions; buying real estate and buying bling show the seriousness and intent of the peeps involved from the word go. No one was ‘forced’ ‘surprised’ or ‘manipulated’ into anything. This ain’t the 50′s cause your pregnant doesn’t mean he’ll marry you. Ask Bridget Moynihan.
      Disclaimer – BI’s are fun BS imo, they tend to come up with a lot of their inside gossip info AFTER the fact most of the time.
      Oh and going by her comments this year in Vogue, Cosmopolitan and German GQ, it was Scarlett who sounded wistful, regretful and wanting to try again, not Ryan.
      Another 24 year old? Like its a pattern? Ryan has dated Charlize Theron and Alanis Morisette who were both older than him. He does not strike me as the obsessive 20′s ****chaser.

      • Good_as_Gold says:

        I don’t think Ryan would have gone back to Scarlett. I think he realised she was a cheat and that she is just far too selfish to be a good wife. I think those blind items were about somebody else. I don’t get the impression that Blake blind-sided Ryan into marriage. Manipulated maybe. But definitely didn’t blackmail him. You can always tell the guys that were blackmailed into it. Their eyes are dead, they look mentally chained to the prison ball lol the looks on their faces say: “just shoot me now – get it over and done with”. Ryan isn’t there…just yet.

    Ryan’s women has a track-record of going out with Penns.

    Scorpios suck. My sister is one, I know them well. I hate them so much when I was pre-selecting candidates for a job I automatically put all the scorpios resumes in the rubbish bin! I do not want to work with them.
