Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively go for an ice cream date in Connecticut

Well, it looks like the most boring celebrity couple of the year isn’t going to mix it up by New Year’s. On Friday, I was thrilled with a tabloid report that suggested that Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds might be having issues – allegedly, Blake is already pushing for commitment (like, marriage) and Ryan is all “Hey, this was just a fling, baby.” I had my fingers crossed for a breakup, followed immediately by Blake running back to Leonardo DiCaprio and The Triumphant Return of Bleo. Unfortunately, it looks like Blake and Ryan are still loved up, this time in Connecticut. They were hanging out, doing WASPy things all over the place:

How sweet is this?

Ryan Reynolds took girlfriend Blake Lively on an old-fashioned date in Connecticut Friday night, where the two held hands and shared ice cream out of the same cup.

The couple spent the evening walking hand in hand at the annual Ridgefield Downtown Holiday Stroll, in picturesque Ridgefield, where carolers roamed the streets, kids posed for pictures with Santa and couples took rides in a horse-drawn carriage.

After strolling around the holiday festival for a bit, Reynolds, 35, and Lively, 24, stopped into Deborah Ann’s Sweet Shoppe, where they “tried a few samples of ice cream off of those little spoons,” says an eyewitness at the ice cream parlor.

“They picked their own flavors, English Toffee and Chocolate Fudge Brownie, but put them in the same cup and shared it.”

“They left holding hands,” says the eyewitness, who further described them as “very nice. They just blended in. They seemed very happy together. They were very excited about the ice cream.”

[From People]

If they followed all of that up with martoonis at the country club with Muffy and Boomer, I wouldn’t be surprised at all. The only surprise is the ice cream flavors, honestly. They’re so boring, I would have thought they’d both go for vanilla. “My vanilla tastes so good, try it.” “No, my vanilla is better, here, have a taste!” Blah. Other eyewitness accounts include this one from Radar: “Blake and Ryan went to the Ridgefield Holiday Stroll and they were so cute holding hands the whole night… [they were] whispering to each other all night, and were laughing while they walked around. They looked like a regular couple and they were really cute when they would check out stores and smile at each other. They were so cute together and he’s so attractive!” OMG, Blake’s publicist needs to find a new word besides “cute.”

    I love this post, Kaiser. WASPY things *slaps knee and snorts*.

    “They were very excited about the ice cream.””

    Uuuuh, whatever floats their boat I guess…

    I’m surprised they didn’t skip down the street and people threw flowers towards them while the rain came down and make them hide under the same umbrella while looking in each others eyes and understanding that their romance is the purest, most passionate, understanding cute romance evah! Djeesh :d, is Meyer S. her publicist?

    • Heather M (Heather) says:

      lol-I thought the same thing about the ice cream. I’m thinking the owner of said ice cream shop must have been the source for that one.

  3. Girl says:

    “Martoonis with Muffy and Boomer”. Ha!

    • Marjalane says:

      My favorite part as well- then they went home and had missionary sex after watching the 11:00 news.

      • Q says:


        Don’t you DARE let Turtle Dove hear you say that!!

      • Turtle Dove says:

        Missionary? Dress up in religious costumes, spankings, pretend guilt and coming back for more. Nothing better than the sex you’re not supposed to have. Sounds fantastic. Count me in.

      • Dandy-Lion says:


        The missionary sex followed the 9:00 news. These two would never stay up until 11.

    • Tiffany27 says:

      Missionary Sex after the 11:00 news. BEST.COMMENT.EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. samira677 says:

    What does it mean when people say a couple is boring? Blake and Ryan aren’t doing anything different from other couples, celebrity or not. Although the quotes make it sound cheesy. Besides I don’t think Demi/Ashton or Charlie/Brooke relationships means they are exciting couples.

    • Ol'Miss says:

      I was thinking the same thing…boring is such a nice change from the weird relationship drama of the celebrities!! Way to go Ryan and Blake! Boring rocks!

  5. Q says:

    Why would Blake’s publicist have to release this info
    It was ALL OVER Twitter and believe it or not evn ice cream shop owners/customers call the tabs for thier own gain!

    That said I still see this RAKE thing as a brief fling of two good friends with bruised feelings hanging. Not a great love affair

    Please don’t quote me if I end up being completly wrong!

    • Turtle Dove says:

      Morning, Q.

      • Q says:

        Heeeyyyy girl,

        Its almost evening her in London

        OK now am I right in guessing you have a thing for Ryan?
        Don’t worry my New Years Eve declaration is stanning for BLEO MK II. Then Ryan’s all yours
        I can do it!!!!!

    • Turtle Dove says:

      Start working on that stat. Bleo 2.0 is amazing. Ryan is too tame by Hollywood standards and it would be far more entertaining to see Blake work her hustle on Leo.

      Remember this fabulousness: http://ca.eonline.com/news/the_awful_truth/leo_dicaprio_vacations_with_blake/243460

      Can’t say that I ever saw a picture of Leo walking behind his a woman he’s dating. Unless of course it’s because he doesn’t want to be photographed with her like Blake’s predecessor.

      I do crush on RR. His body is amazing, of course, but he seems funny. I do see him and Blake carrying on for awhile though. Hate to say it, but he strikes me as a “climber” too, and he gets some press with Blake. RR is popular on his own, but he benefits from female association.

    • mercy says:

      You mean Radar and People saw all the tweets from Ridgefield and then contacted those people and Deborah Anne’s to write their usual cheesetastic “exclusives”? I don’t believe it! It makes too much sense.

  6. carrie says:

    yesterday my honey and me went to eat pancakes:our life is as “interesting” as Lively/Reynolds

    who is interesting by this news? it’s not against them but the gossip mag or their publicists are desperated

    • anonymous says:

      Because you guys do not travel a lot, you tend to sound like a bunch of haters. You label them as boring or interesting BUT these people travel the world like you go the local Walmart, they may love having down time where they can be normal, enjoy ice cream, stroll around town and make love in their own bed!! When Leo and Blake were traveling to Paris, and yachting this probably did not impress her as she goes back and forth to Paris often because of working with Channel. Ryan’s films have long shoots away from home from Safe house in South Africa and Europe, to GA, now he is in Boston so do you think they want to catch a flight somewhere every weekend. They are not obligated to make watching them fun. I love this low key living guy, look at this way. If they want the Red Carpet they can have it. If they want ice cream and a stroll they can have that too. They have some awesome choices. They have the money, and opportunities you can only dream about. I would take boring Ryan and Blake’s lifestyle any day of the week, because I bet things heat up once the doors close at home

  7. Cathy says:

    The dog in the one picture is a cutie. Who cares about them and their ice cream.

  8. Oi says:

    But,Kaiser there is no other word for Ryan Reynolds. He is cute. And…..cute. and over bronzed but that’s just me. He looks like the human incarnate of a chinchilla.

  9. Turtle Dove says:

    “They were very excited about the ice cream.”

    Well.. I’d be more excited about bouncing up and down on Ryan, but I guess I’m a slut like that.

    It all sounds sweet and very nice, but I want to hear about the bodice ripping and Ryan pulling on Blake’s hair and tossing her around on the mattress.

    Edit: Best not pull on her hair; it looks fried, and it’d probably come out in chunks.

  10. Sway says:

    Ugh, this girl with her manly face and her big nose and her Jennifer Aniston mouth and… ugh.

  11. Turtle Dove says:

    Top picture = Blake getting ready for her triple sow cow (proper spelling is salchow).

  12. gab says:

    I’m sorry I can’t think of a thing to say after looking at that frickin adorable puppy she is holding! OMG how cute can you get?

  13. UKHels says:

    he looks like he would be really short. Is he really short? I don’t get him at all

    • mercyme says:

      I read he’s 6′ 2″ but that could mean 5′ 9″ in Hollywood

      • anonymous says:

        Ryan is more 6.2-1/2′, he is really tall and in photos he looks like he has narrow hips, but I was surprised to see him for real this guy has a nice body, with real nice HIPS.

  14. Kimbob says:

    I dunno…I just think Ryan Reynolds looks too “Joe Hollywood” to me. Like another blogger mentioned, definitely too bronzed (that’s just gaross to me), and his overall general affect. He does nothing for me whatsoever.

    And yeah…that puppy is THE STAR of this story, for sure!

  15. Angelique says:

    She’s so damn ugly, I can’t even look at her… I don’t understand how she’s attracting all those men ! She has a nice body, but do they ever look above her neck ?

    • anonymous says:

      Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, so to you she may be butt ugly, but when it comes to her actually getting paid for the way she looks, she is “winning” this argument between all the major magazine covers she has and her contract with Channel, I think your opinion does not really matter to Ryan or Leo

    • Anne says:

      There’s this thing called “doggy style.”

  16. DG says:

    I know it’s the internet and people say whatever they damn well please without having to back it up, but I would LOVE to see pictures of the people who are calling Blake frickin’ Lively “ugly.” It’s so transparent and ridiculous.

    • Anna says:

      She’s not ugly but she’s not youthful either. In a lot of pictures and without makeup she looks older than Rachel Weisz and that woman is in her 40′s and has a kid.

    • Tobey Maguire says:

      Why is it “transparent and ridiculous”? This is a gossip board called celebitchy where we are encouraged to gossip and bitch about celebs, especially the Blake Lively variety who depend on this very kind of gossip/critisim to even be relevant. Because Lord knows she can’t depend on her “Actressing”.

      Why should anyone have to post a photo of themselves to be able to express that Blake Lively is unattractive? Really?? I never thought this gossip board (again called Celebitchy) attracted the “ur jus jellus” variety of stan.

      I live in the city of Montreal and can simply walk down the street and see a sea of so called “regular” “civilian” women who put this so called “hot Chanel fashionista” to shame and they don’t have the help of (MULTIPLE plastic surgeries, professional stylists, make up artists, Anna Wintour, Karl L etc.)

      Even with all the “HELP” Blake has undergone to get where she is, she is still nothing special, not compared to other actresses in Hollywood and not even to regular women I can see in a city like Montreal or Toronto. I don’t have to look in the mirror to know that’s true.

      • Leo DiCaprio says:

        Wow life must be boring at Chez Maguire. If anyone knows good looking, it’s Tobey.

      • Britany says:

        I have never written on one of these sites, but I feel compelled after seeing so many nasty and unnecessary comments that make me think back to bitchy middle-school girls. These sites should not be a breeding ground for people to make ugly comments on them that really only show how unhappy and miserable they must be with themselves. Whether the target of the insult is a celebrity or not, calling someone ugly only reflects the ugliness of the person saying it. A lot of you people need to grow up.

    • Sophie says:

      Good lord, what’s this site coming to? What’s with all the sympathy for the celebs?

      Gossip is fun! Bitching is fun! Celebrities are here for our entertainment!

      Celebs like Blake make a living getting their picture taken. If you put yourself in that position, folks on the internet can say anything they want about you. That’s just how it works. And fortunately for us, we’re not celebrities & we’re not claiming to be beautiful, so we don’t have to post our pictures before posting our snarky comments.

      • Kimbob says:

        Thanks @Sophie for saying what I was thinking! And….as @Tobey Maguire just reminded, too…THE NAME OF THIS SITE IS “CELEBITCHY,”….ummmm…HELLO to all of the stans and bleeding hearts…go to another site!!! Go away! We’re not too crazy here for sycophantic, overly gushy write ups here…..again…go to another “understanding” site that does your type of thing. We have ours!

      • Poirot says:

        Gossip IS fun but speaking personally thats mostly when its pithy, witty or just nonsensical
        Not really when the bitchiness its taking to a level that people, well women, have to write paragraphs/essays to vent.
        We can also be called on to prove lies,(proclaimed as facts) repeated ad infinitum on persons for debate no?
        To me it just seems odd why does one CARE that much or if you despise said person so just skip the posts.
        Again Just IMHO

        And also where is the proof of this MULTIPLE plastic surgery?? It seems it was nose job at most and her nose is till kinda big to moi

    • mimi says:

      She’s plain looking, in comparison to the likes of beauties like Angelina Jolie, Monica Belluci, Jessica Alba and Amber Heard. She used to be fug before her plastic surgery make over:


  17. Anna says:

    Just seeing their names together makes me sleepy. Gosh their so boring. If they went sky-diving and one of them died I still wouldn’t find them interesting.

  18. Camille says:

    Yikes, the RR/Lively romance reports are almost as bad as the Aniston/Latest boytoy articles. :roll:

    • Q says:

      Oh Camille,

      Good to see ya around
      With Turtle Dove at recent just need to hear from 5 of the other celebitchy crew
      Pls join me in saving Turtle Dove and stanning for BLEO II

    • Turtle Dove says:

      Hello Camille and Q.


  19. Yalena says:

    How do you read more comments on here ?

  20. Tiffany says:

    Is it strange that the only time that I found Ryan Reynolds interesting was during his relationship with Alanis Morissette? Then came Scarlett and Blake and this clown is the most boring individual. My interest spiked when the rumors that he was involved with Sandra, now, blah. He and Blake were the reason I did not see the Green Lantern.

  21. Jerry says:

    Too beautiful for this guy.Shes the prettiest girl in that crap CW show

  22. Lady_Luck says:

    Agree with the above comment – Leighton Meister is much hotter and sassier! And I can respect that she keeps a low profile too.

    Blake, she has game for sure…but I have a feeling this romance is headed for the same hills as ‘bleo’. Ryan is much tamer than Leo, but I get the impression that there is only so much ‘house-wife’ pushing the guys can take. It’s like: “sheesh I got with a 24yr old blonde for a fling, and after two months she’s trying to push me up the aisle”. I believe the other story about Ryan trying to cool things with Blake. She’s a lovely looking girl, but acts too wifey in the relationships she gets in.

  23. Turtle Dove says:

    Well, they’ve parted ways… for now. I’d like to think that Blake looks grumpy because she wanted to enjoy another round of missionary sex (my version), or she’s pondering Bleo 2.0, but it might be because she has to take the train. The train…. is it faster to go that route from Boston to NY?

    Maybe I’m too aloof for my own good, but what does it say when she’s always running to Boston to see him? I’m not that over eager with relationships, I usually make the boys work harder than I do. :)

  25. anonymoose says:

    WOW, could she look like more of a Sad Swan in that top photo? Ha! Such a plain girl. Not sure why she is thought to have ANY cache.

    And why is there a seatbelt strap coming out of her sweater????!? (3rd pic)

    i’ll be kind and not comment on that getup she is wearing in the 1st pic. OK I will. She has a comic book name and I suppose she decided to dress the part? She’s looking desperate for attention….

  26. Sophie says:

    Must say I love that grey/blue thing she’s wearing in the last pic. At least the top half of it.

  27. hannah says:

    blake lively had a boob job before she was 18 she had fake boobs in sisterhood of the travelling pants when she was lying on the ground, and then she had a nosejob in 2006 when she was 19 after filming accepted, its easy to confirm if u just watch the movies oh and she lies about everything! how fun.
    If u r AGAINST plastic surgery join this: http://www.facebook.com/groups/148139628619899/

    • Jane says:

      Logically, a boob job would come after her nose job… since teenage girls would be much more concerned about a big/crooked nose. And boobs are still growing, so why would she get a boob job so early? But I definitely believe she got a nose job. Just not convinced on the boob job.

  28. casey says:

    she is actually pretty weird looking. Oh and btw, why is she always hooking up with some man way older than her? like she dated leonardo when she was like 23 or 22 and now shes dating RR and hes 35 thats just weird to me.

  29. Heya i’m for the first time here. I found this board and I in finding It really useful & it helped me out much. I am hoping to present something again and aid others such as you aided me.
