Meg Ryan & John Mellencamp declare their new (?) love through a photo op


Yesterday, Meg Ryan took her new lover John Mellencamp out for a little photo op. I seriously think they must have called every photo agency and paparazzi they knew, because these photos are everywhere. I guess this is what new couples do now to announce their relationship. The old way – walking on red carpet together – isn’t available, because Meg barely works anymore (because of her jacked face). Anyway, the body language: Meg is all “Can you bitches shut up about how I’m a homewrecker now?” and John is all “Whatevs, I got my jumpoff and my cig, it’s all good.”

By the way, CB wants me to point out the smoking thing specifically. Apparently, back in 2009, John’s 14-year-old son used Facebook to wage a campaign to get his dad to stop smoking. Looks like that took, right? Do you think his son is kicking himself a little bit, thinking that he was maybe focused on the wrong thing? I mean, we still haven’t heard anything from John’s estranged wife Elaine, but I’m seriously waiting for her side of things.

Also – what the hell is Meg wearing? Ugh.

    You know what I hope Kaiser, I hope we never hear from his estranged wife. I think these hollywood men are getting way to full of themselves during these breakups. Whenver the wronged women starts talking it always makes the man seem much more important and worth it than he actually is. Look at John Mellencamp, is he really worth any hurt feelings? I don’t think so. I think the only thing Elaine really needs to do is bounce back quickly with a great guy and that will be all that needs to be said.

  2. Green Is Good says:

    Boy, is this an unlikely couple, or what?

    It would be so refreshing if Meg finally discovered a COMB and actually ran it through that rat’s nest on her head. That ‘do is fugly on a 40-something woman.

  3. LisaMarie says:

    You said it Po! His estranged wife is gorgeous and Meg Ryan is an extreme downgrade, but for a guy that looks like that its no surprise she was all he could get.

  4. brin says:

    Yeah, I hope Elaine already has some hot guy she’s hooking up with.
    Meg & John look like they can’t find their way back to Woodstock.

  5. Marjalane says:

    Hopefully Elaine Irwin takes a big chunk of Johnny Cougars money. But not so much that he can’t afford to buy Jackface some new clothes. Oh, and it’s so lovely that her little adopted daughter has such a stand up example of American parenting. Icky people!

  6. echolocate says:

    Doesn’t she smoke, too, but hide it?

    He’s exiting a building with a lit cigarette. Hope it wasn’t the food store, because that would gross me out if I was shopping there.

    Her outfit goes awry at the pants. I don’t get why they got involved in that ensemble.

    This is the second set of photos in which his left hand is mesmerizing to me. It’s oddly plump and soft-looking. I see it and expect a woman like the Queen Mum is attached to it.

  7. francesca says:

    What echocolate said about the hand. That whole arm looks weird. Like a soft white dinosaur limb.

  8. Eve says:

    Better her/him than me…

  9. Tess says:

    He reminds me of what Charlie Manson might have looked like if he hadn’t been evil, crazy, and incarcerated.

    Her hair…yeah, not good.

  10. Kevin says:

    Two American kids doing the best they can.

  11. anti says:

    okay, he’s obviously got his sleeves up and is holding his arms away from his sides to show the new darker tattoo on his left arm… i wonder what it says. looks like a memorial tattoo?

    edit: so, it’s his own lyrics…”Life is short, even in the longest of days 1905-2003″

  12. poopie says:

    yea, isn’t NYC one of those cities where you can’t even smoke in your own loft without getting fined? so WHAT building is he exiting with HALF a lit ciggie?

    and WHAT a strange coupling for sure ! megs needs to get her some BOBBIE BROOKS PANTS instead of that AWFUL Sgt.Pepper outfit !

  13. Louisa says:

    some couples who started by cheating don’t elicit much anger bt the public. I see these 2 as one of those couples. you feel kinda bad for Elaine but… whatever. Maybe because they LOOK so right together. Just messy, dirty, smokey with bloated faces. I just think because they both look so pathetic, we are not going to be so hard on them pairing up during his marriage.

  14. malachais says:

    yuck, meg is probably going to milk this relationship for as long as she can

  15. Marjalane says:


    good one.

  16. Mia135 says:

    Oh well, they probably are what works for each other right now – she might be quite lonely. I don’t recall her with anyone since she split from Quaid.
    Elaine might have wanted to split from Mellencamp herself.

  17. Lori says:

    I’m just going to try to ignore this relationship, ugh. Elaine lives near Indiana University — Elaine, go get yourself a young hottie for a nice fling.

  18. lilred says:

    He USED to be hot. Now not at all.

  19. Roxanne75 says:

    Why is it when people divorce/separate it’s always like a horrific evil that one did to another? Sometimes after so many years you just drift away from eachother and you want to start new. No big deal. Sad, but happens every day.

  20. Welldun says:

    I’m from Indiana so I really hope that he and Elaine don’t completely move away from here…they’re pretty much all we have.

    On the other hand, I think it was the Dlisted guy who called John…little Harry Hamlin

    too damn funny

  21. original kate says:

    he looks just like the guy who came to fix our hot water heater.

  22. Deev says:

    I live in Bloomington, IN, John Mellencamp’s “official” place of residence. John and Elaine are a regular fixture around here, so everyone is used to seeing them out and about and respects their privacy. I’m sure it’s going to be big news when he starts bringing Meg around here, though. I think most will be Team Elaine because she does a lot of local charity work.

  23. lucy2 says:

    The only thing I’m curious to know is when this relationship started – pre or post separation. Beyond that, eh.

    The “confirmation” followed by “surprise paparazzi shots” trick is getting old.

  24. JRenee says:

    I’m with Lucy2.

  25. randomness says:

    Anyone notice that restaurants ‘B’ rating, almost like how I would rate this couple.

  26. RHONYC says:

    *beyonce singing*

    ‘partna, let me DOWNgrade (DOWNgrade) U’ 🙁

  27. Jeannified says:

    YEARS ago, John’s health was in serious jeopardy, due to smoking. The doctor told him to quit, but he flat out refused (on TV!) Now all these years later, he’s STILL smoking! Ugh! Some people never learn. It’s a shame that he’s still smoking AND leaving his dedicated wife of 18 years. I love him as a musicina AND an artist (he’s very talented) but to still smoke and go off with jacked-up Meg Ryan?! Come on!

  28. Raven says:

    This may have given Elaine the excuse she needed to leave. She looks amazing and he is clearly trying to kill himself. That would rub me the wrong way day after day. I’d want to be gone because the next time his heart goes may be the last.

  29. Matt says:

    @ Jeannified, it makes me so angry when smokers are so dumb and selfish that they won’t even quit despite having major health problems.

    His wife sounds better off without him, she can focus on the rest of her family now.

  30. Kim says:

    Does she own a mirror? Does she see how bad her sugeries turned out?! This is one of the WORST face lifts etc i have ever seen and those sick fish lips. She looks like the Jokers ugly sister! She looks terrible! Not that its ALL about looks but her personality doesnt seem good enough to make up for the fugliness of her many botched surguries.

  31. guesty says:

    besides her face & hair being a complete mess…i absolutely hate her feet.

    & he needs to watch it with that salt & pepper hair thing or he’s gonna look like pauly from sopranos who looks like grandpa from the munsters.

  32. Hm says:

    They are closer in age and probably have more to talk about. Maybe Elaine finds him physically repulsive now that he is so much older and not as well-preserved as she is. He has lady jowls and gray roots, ya know?

  33. dweeb says:

    would her new name be meg mellencamp or meg cougar?

  34. K-Burrrd says:

    For a second, I thought this was a Squidbillies photoshoot.

  35. Trashaddict says:

    OMG you know how couples start to look alike, it’s already happening with them!

  36. DrM says:

    Can I just point out that the man USED TO BE HOT! Oh my GOD! He’s also had quadruple bypass surgery or some such, massive health issues and he’s STILL SMOKING.

    Blargh he’s like a walking advertisement for what smoking can do to your looks…
