Are John Mellencamp & Meg Ryan planning a crusty July wedding?


Last we heard from our favorite crusty lovers Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp, they were still going strong, they were loved up all over the country, and John had maybe asked Meg to get pre-engaged. It’s the Jumpoff Fairytale! According to this week’s Enquirer, John has stepped up and actually proposed to Meg for real. And she accepted, and they’re planning July nuptials. So what’s the problem? John’s not technically divorced yet. Of course, he was still technically married when they hooked up, so this too shall pass, Meg. By the way, for those you who think I’m using “crusty lovers” as a cut on their ages, I’m not. I’m saying “crusty” because that’s how they LOOK. Like they haven’t bathed. Like they smell bad. Dumb hippies.

Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp are planning a July wedding, the Enquirer has learned exclusively – but there may be a problem. He’s still married!

When the couple recently revealed their marriage plans to family members, “John’s children were shocked,” said a family insider. “They don’t think their dad should be getting married so quickly. But she’s telling them that Meg is the woman he always wanted and that’s that.”

John filed for divorce from Elaine Irwin in January. However the split has not yet been legally finalized. The breakup came shortly after John and Meg were photographed walking arm-in-arm in New York, although sources said Elaine has been upset for years over John’s wandering eye.

Since then, John and Meg have been inseparable. Meg attends all of John’s concerts and recently they were spotted on a romantic getaway in Cancun. Even though Meg’s publicist denies there are wedding plans, the insider insists the couple is already working up a guest list for the nuptials, which john wants to have at his Indiana estate.

“Jennifer Aniston and Kenny Chesney are already on the list,” said the insider. “John is planning to throw a huge party outdoors on his property, right by Lake Monroe, which is adjacent. He’ll be performing with his band and so will a lot of his musician friends.

But John will have to quickly finalize his divorce so the wedding can go off as planned. He is trying to end things amicably with Elaine: “He’s saying he’s going to invite Elaine to the wedding.”

Oh, that should be divine. I hope he DOES invite his new ex-wife to his wedding with his jumpoff. And I hope Elaine goes, gets tanked, and decides to toast the happy, crusty couple. They should sell tickets.

By the way, Meg’s rep denied the July wedding story to E! News. But I don’t much stock in that, considering Meg’s rep also issued a half-assed denial about her relationship with John AFTER they had been photographed together, looking crusty and loved-up. So, will this marriage happen? Considering that Elaine will be John’s THIRD ex-wife, I’d say that he’s one of those dudes who always has to be in a relationship. You know those guys. The ones who can’t be alone for two seconds or they fall apart. That’s John. So I’d say that as soon as he’s officially divorced, he’s probably going to try to marry Meg.

    Let’s all toast the happy couple with a glass of Ensure!

  2. crab says:

    Ewww they do look like they smell bad!!

  3. Miss Marie says:

    Good for them! I found love again late (age 49) with a great guy(age 61) – we feel like we are in our 30s. Being with the right partner seriously will extend your life – studies prove it. So, kudos to them. All you younger folks “out there”- wait till you get older – I couldn’t believe it myself, but all the advice older, wiser people gave me when I was young, turned out to be true! You will eat your words too! Hugs to all of you. Enjoy!

  4. Katalina says:

    What makes a woman think that becoming a guy’s 4th wife is a good idea? Do they really believe that they’ll be the wife that makes it work? I don’t get it.

  5. the original bellaluna says:

    Not to bust on The National Enquirer, but if his divorce isn’t finalised, he cannot legally marry again. Unless things are different in Indiana. (OR they do whatever Kelsey and that former NJ stripper did.)

  6. Diane says:

    Are they competing for the grossest hair?

  7. e.non says:

    omg!!!! how dare these two get old — and the horror that they go out in public!!! what a disgrace. doesn’t meg ryan know she should kill herself, since she’s no longer the cute young thang — and that plastic surgery – oy; and john mellencamp — shouldn’t he die of lung cancer already.

  8. Katalina says:

    Did you not read the post at all?? They’re not being called crusty because of their age, but because of the fact that they look crusty. Ya know, DIRTY.

  9. dorothy says:

    Ever notice that everytime Meg Ryan has a boyfriend she slides into that hippy-don’t-bathe-everyday look? She did it with Crowe and now Melloncamp. Weird?

  10. Lucy says:

    Was eating a bowl of cereal when this picture popped up…threw up in my mouth a little…yuck

  11. Jackson says:

    Let’s hope it’s a small, private affair. With no pictures. Then again they may actually shower and spit-shine themselves for the big day. Maybe put on some clean clothes.

  12. shockedandappalled says:

    They get points from me for being with someone relatively their own age.

  13. Hmmm says:

    @Miss Marie – I too found love late at age 48 and he was 55. We were engaged most of 2010 until he suddenly passed away from a heart attack in early September. I applaud your trying with a 61 year old but please be aware of the danger of dating an older gentleman. I hope he’s healthy! As for Meg and John, meh. They both are little tiny people that look like they like each other.

  14. Buffy Wilson says:

    I love these two together.

  15. RHONYC says:

    ‘crusty lovers’

    that’s awesome! 😆

  16. Jess says:

    He lost me with the nasty cigarette.

  17. Mizz Tickles says:

    Call me crusty but I like these two together!

  18. mary simon says:

    funky and crusty. I agree with shockedandappalled – gotta give them both credit for being with someone their own age. I hope they last – it will be cool to see them in ten years.

  19. junk573r says:

    @ Hmmm: That’s such a sad story. I’m so sorry.

  20. Miss Marie says:

    @Hmmm. I am sorry for your loss, yet there are no guarantees in life regardless of age. God forbid, I could be dead tomorrow, killed by a raging toronado(I live in the South where there have been plenty). As Lord Tennyson wrote, in 1850:

    I hold it true, whate’er befall;
    I feel it, when I sorrow most;
    ‘Tis better to have loved and lost
    Than never to have loved at all.

    Don’t stop loving because of age.

  21. Pilyt says:

    Buffy, I love this couple too. Age appropriate and cute! Sorry, I dont see “crusty”.

    I wonder if she will invite Dennis Quaid and Russell Crowe! LOL

  22. mimi says:

    I love them together…..

  23. kelbear says:

    Every time I see City of Angels it just reminds me of how much I want her hair in that movie.

  24. Ari says:

    I like them too…its just amazing to me though how rough and hardcore a drug addict her ex used to be [Dennis] and he looks so much better than both of them!

  25. Ashley says:

    @ Marie, I am so happy for you and your partner. Hope you 2 enjoy what life has to offer for many years together and then join each other in the other world when you swing togetherr with the melody of love, till the enterrnity.

    @Hmmmm, sorry for your loss but you will find love again. These days people live well into their 80s so getting married in your mid 50’s could potentially be the start of a good 30 years together…

    You both will be on my prayers tonight. 😀

  26. Ashley says:

    Someone should tell Meg and her new husband to shower together often, it’s a fun thing lovers do…

  27. Bill Hicks is God says:

    I want to know what brand of cigarettes her bouquet will be.

    @Hmmm: I’m sorry for your loss but I do believe the saying that it’s not how long we love, it’s how much. Bless your heart.

  28. Falliblehuman says:

    It’s kind of nice to see an older man going out with a woman his age, not years younger. I like that Meg’s allowing a bit of gray to show in her hair, too. That takes guts when you’re in the spotlight.

  29. Hmmm says:

    Thanks everyone for your kind comments. I really had thought he was my “late in life soulmate” so yes, the loss hit pretty hard and still getting over it. Although feel sometimes like I’ve been kicked in the stomach – hard. I do know it “can” happen, but won’t if I don’t get out there and look for it. And I haven’t – yet. I’m always happy for others though, who have found happiness, whatever their ages. So Miss Marie, go on with your happy self! Good luck!

  30. LindaR says:

    First of all, he has ugly, stubby, little-man hands. Ugh. Secondly, they both look like they have gross breath and would leave sand in the bed after they did it, like my dog does when he has laid down somewhere. Double ugh.

  31. Melinda says:

    @LindaR- you made me laugh to the point of tears with your comment.

  32. Linda says:

    They look like a really fun couple and they’re so cute! He is not without a certain attraction (as many women will agree).

  33. Bill Hicks is God says:

    @Linda: Who are these two women aside from Elaine Irwin? 😉

  34. Crash2GO2 says:

    I think Meg looks good, but I have always had a fondness for her. Especially now that her trout lip seems to have deflated a little bit. Did anyone see the bathing suit photos of her in mexico? My god, that woman has a flawless body for any age!! I was seething with jealousy.

    But yeah. I don’t get the thing with John. At all. He is tiny and gross. Inside and out.

  35. Trashaddict says:

    Meg must have read the snarky comments from last time, because she’s wearing a bra now. Not that she needs to.

  36. Mary Jane says:

    C’mon people… I am an old (46) hippie chick — I STILL love the music, the long hair and the great boho fashions, BUT I am VERY clean, always sweet-smelling, and my (almost) ass-length hair is always super-clean and shiny. I know hippies get a bad rap and it is kind of funny, but these two strike me more “trailer park” than “hippie.”

  37. dani says:

    what is wrong with her upper lip?

  38. Vesper says:

    What happened to Meg, she used to be so cute? Hate, hate her hair now.

  39. endoplasmic_ridiculum says:

    Man, what a trade DOWN from Dennis Quaid. JCM looks like the dude from ERASERHEAD.

  40. NoFrank says:

    They look pretty clean to me. I think you are extrapolating from his unshaven face but their hair isn’t greasy and their clothes are clean and I’m pretty sure she worked on that hair before they went out. I can’t say anything about the way they got together but I get kind of tired of anyone who doesn’t look skinny, hairless, and lacquered being called “crusty” or “old” or “dirty”. God forbid someone who doesn’t look like a Kardashian should have the nerve to go out on the street.

  41. a wise man..I hope says:

    @Hmmm…sorry for your loss, but younger husbands whom are engaged and married have also died. Studies show that a man’s life is extended with a younger spouse, just as statistics have shown that women with older men have higher life expectancy. This cougar propaganda thanks to Carrie Bradshaw is just that, false propaganda. A younger man as a marriage partner has shown to have no positive effect on the life expectancy of an older woman. This could probably be because younger people, especially men, are very stupid. In the hippie days of the 60’s, they said “never trust anyone over 30.” As I get older, I’ve come to realize that it is in fact the opposite, “never trust anybody under 30.” Most if not all, and that’s both women and men under 30 are predominantly selfish, that’s why most younger people are in horrible relationships that are doomed to fail.

  42. Jen says:

    Oops I’m so late in news. Meg was not wearing a bra in these pics though.
