Blake Lively refuses to have Ryan Reynolds’ babies unless he stops watching TV

I really thought that we’d have a Blake Lively pregnancy announcement by now. Not that I believed Blake and Ryan Reynolds’ wedding was of the shotgun variety, but it’s been about six months since they got hitched – that’s long enough for Blake to get knocked up as a married lady! I really thought that was the way she was going to play it – a quick, head-over-heels courtship, immediately moving into together and bolting off to get married quietly less than a year after they first started up, followed by a swift pregnancy announcement. But I guess Blake is going to make us wait. And Star Magazine has an absurd reason for “why” she’s making us wait: apparently, Ryan is a TV addict. For real?

Newlywed Blake Lively is apparently already annoyed with husband Ryan Reynolds – because he can’t turn off the TV! Blake, 25, who tied the knot with Ryan, 36, in a secret ceremony last September, has had it with the time her man spends in front of the tube.

“He watches 50 hours a week,” an insider tells Star. “They are not going to have kids until he kicks his habit.”

And while Blake believes paying extended attention to the screen is bad for the mind, Ryan doesn’t see the big deal.

“It’s a serious issue for them,” says the source. “They got married so fast that they didn’t have time to find out stuff like this this.”

I actually sat here and tried to figure out how many hours of TV I watch in any given week. I watch less TV and more DVDs in the summer, when there aren’t that many new shows on. I’m not a reality show person (I gave up Project Runway a few years ago, and I loathe those singing shows), but I do have a very serious PBS problem. I am a PBS addict. I love Frontline, Antiques Roadshow, Nature, Masterpiece and American Experience. I also had a really bad MSNBC problem during the election (but it’s waned a bit this year). So… how many hours of TV am I watching? Does the news count? If the news counts, I’m watching about 20 hours (give or take 4 hours) of TV a week. Is that bad?

Anyway, not that I believe this particular story, but Gossip Cop has “denied” it by speaking to an unnamed “Lively insider”. That only makes me believe that something is there!! Seriously, though, Ryan seems like a world-class nester. I bet he prefers to sit at home and watch TV rather than… well, anything else. Maybe Blake should get him the Gossip Girl Box Set. Or maybe he was just really, really into college basketball? A lot of dudes get obsessed with it.

  1. i'm french don't kill me says:

    if he prefer to see tv more to have sex with his young and pretty wife,it’s a garbage!
    soon,Ryan is addicted to Kardashian tv shows

    • jess says:

      I don’t see it…Rumors of his last divorce were because he was so outdoorsy and stuff and Scarlett wasn’t. If you’ve ever read his Huffington Post columns, Ryan is clearly a very intelligent man. The combination of the two of those don’t usually make a TV addict lol

      • Ginger says:

        Hmmm…I’m not sure about that. I also love the outdoors and consider myself to be intelligent. I am college educated but I also love to watch TV. Maybe it’s more of the content of what you are watching. Like Kaiser said, she watches a lot of PBS and the news which is a far cry from watching say “Honey Boo Boo” but I don’t judge because I have friends who are extremely intelligent but also love watching very low brow TV shows. Personally, my guilty pleasure are the Real Housewives shows.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        I don’t know… I consider myself fairly intelligent (I’m a psychiatrist and have advanced degrees in anthropology and parapsychology) and I’m addicted to crap like Honey Boo Boo, Friday Bride-day shows, and Duck Dynasty (as well as BBC-America, I’m totally getting into “Orphan Black” – anyone else watching?)

        Escapist television is the best and sometimes the dumber the show, the more it takes you away from every day life.

      • GByeGirl says:

        @Paranormalgirl: You are an actual psychiatrist, as in a medical doctor specializing in psychiatry as well as having an advanced degree in parapsychology? That’s…unusual. Where did you get your parapsychology degree? Typically MDs are wary of so-called “pseudosciences” and eschew such pursuits.

  2. Liv says:

    50 hours? How is he supposed to work on a film then?

    Star is full of crap.

  3. A says:

    This is gonna be one big re-run of his marriage with ScarJo.

  4. Dea83 says:

    One of the funniest bs stories ever!
    “This story is so phenomenally stupid.” Gossip Cop couldn’t have said it better!

  5. marie says:

    she’s offended that he didn’t make Gossip Girl must see tv.. the story stupid.

  6. karmasabiatch! says:

    Good Lord.

    I see Star is up to its usual antics, lol. To be fair, everything I read about RR makes me think he some kind of compulsive homebody and who knows how much of that Blake truly knew before she got that (ugh, over the top) big assed pink ring?

    But yeah, I call BS on this one.

  7. Nicolette says:

    She has a problem with tv? Um isn’t that how she became famous?

  8. Lamont says:

    I was reading the comments on that Gossip Cop story and the other links attached.And EVERY Blake and Ryan story comes from Star Magazine

    Before they got married
    “Blake wants to destroy Ryan’s house”
    “Her pal are too immature for him”
    “She’s forcing him to marriage”

    After they got married
    She hates the camping”
    She’s flirting with Penn”
    Now this

    Not even other rags like Life &style, In Touch Weekly, or the Enquirer have any input or seem invested.
    Its clear Star has an agenda.
    I dunno why anyone gives them the time of day at this point.

    On the other hand. Blake looks absolutely lovely in that top picture.
    Can anyone ID that floral black skirt?

    • Barbara says:

      the best for me was the one they claimed they broke up because she wanted to get married and he didn’t and then two weeks later they got married.
      The camping one is also funny, they said they were having issues because he wants to camp too much and Blake hates it and then in the one of the shows they promoted the croods the camp subject came up and he said he doesn’t camp since ninth grade.
      They’re creative in Star but I have no idea why they keep planting those stories about this couple specifically.

      • mercy says:

        Ladies, if she’d just go camping with him I’m sure he’d get off the couch. Maybe she doesn’t want to go camping because she’s pregnant with the “marriage saving” baby (previously known as the “shotgun marriage” baby.)

  9. The Original Mia says:

    *yawn* Shakes off boredom. Ponders why there’s been a plethora of stories about Blake Lively when she had disappeared after her wedding.

  10. MsAubra says:

    Girl, it aint looking like you have a promising long career ahead of you! You best get on your back and get it poppin’

  11. Lem says:

    I just don’t see how a man goes from
    Alanis to Scarlet to Blake

  12. Karen says:

    Average couple takes 10 months to conceive. Relax. There’s still a chance they’re trying for a right away kid it just hasn’t happend.

  13. Christin says:

    Maybe he is a homebody and / or introvert. Being introverted does not mean shyness; it simply indicates how one likes to recharge. Introverts like to have some time alone, reading or maybe watching TV. Would she rather he be gone 40 hours a week with his buddies?

    If this is true, it sounds like she may be a little immature. There are worse things, and if they had a baby, the routine would change anyway.

  14. Jade says:

    I love how ridiculous this sounds. Instead of celebs’ drugs/booze/Botox habit, a celeb’s tv habit has become gossip lol. Don’t u just love entertainment. Anyway I love tv!

  15. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    So what? The dude is vegging out btwn projects and they have been “nesting.” Prob just enjoying each others company as newlyweds instead of staying on the red carpet or out shopping. I dont think they are as famewh0rey as they are made out to be or once were. They have a house in the suburbs..honestly, watching a lot of TV makes him/them sound pretty normal IMO lol

    • anomyous says:

      If he is watching TV, he must be doing it late night because based on the schedule he seems to have Feb & March was promoting The Croods throughout the world, He has filmed “Queen of Night” now he is Europe filiming “Voices” I would love to see his body double. and Blake has been traveling with him.
