Jennifer Love Hewitt publicly pressures Jamie Kennedy to propose

Jennifer Love Hewitt confirmed to Jamie Kennedy and the world that she expects to be engaged by this time next year – engaged to Jamie, that is. Both Jennifer and Jamie were on the “JohnJay and Rich” radio show in Los Angeles (story via US Weekly) when they got some questions about a rumored engagement. Because it’s been like three months or whatever, so of course everyone thinks they’re engaged. Because we know how fast Jennifer Love works, I suppose. Jennifer and Jamie denied they are currently engaged, but Jennifer says she was offended that Jamie acted upset that there were engagement rumors floating around, and told Jamie “there’s a line of people who would probably be OK with that.” Because, in Jennifer’s mind, it’s still 1998 and she’s hot stuff.

Anyway, Jamie then asked Jennifer if she could provide him with some kind of “timeline” for their relationship, and Jennifer told him she expected him to propose within the next year, or there will be “a situation”. And yes, we know all of this because they said it all on-air, on a radio show:

Jennifer Love Hewitt — who split from fiance Ross McCall late last year — says she wants to be engaged again by this time next year.

Or else.

On Monday, the actress and her boyfriend, Ghost Whisperer costar Jamie Kennedy, popped by 104.7 FM’s JohnJay and Rich Show in L.A. to deny engagement rumors.

“A rumor has come out that Jamie and I supposedly got engaged,” she said after the two were spotted at a Las Vegas jewelry shop buying a small ring.

When her boyfriend heard the engagement reports, “the poor guy was on fire,” she went on. “He was like, ‘No, no, no. That’s not true!'”

Added the actress, “I was like, ‘God, would that be the worst thing in the world?! Excuse me, but just for a second, there’s a line of people who would probably be OK with that [rumor].'”

Kennedy said he didn’t mean to upset his girlfriend.

“The thing is, people asked me, ‘Are you engaged?’ And I just said, ‘No, not that the moment, I’d be a very lucky man,'” he said. “And she got mad at me!”

Kennedy then asked Hewitt for a proposal timeline.

Replied Hewitt, “A timeline? By this time next year, if we’re not planning something, then there’s a situation.”

Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jamie Kennedy are so harmless, it’s hard to get mad at them. So what if she’s pressuring him to get engaged after only a few months? Jamie can take it, he’s a big boy, and Jennifer is probably the coolest girl he’s ever dated (and that speaks volumes about both of them). Plus, how many times has Jennifer been engaged? About a dozen, right? And she’s never made it down the aisle. Jamie should just bite the bullet, get her ring, and they can be “engaged” until they start driving each other crazy. I should also mention that it seems to me that Jamie is being a very good sport about the whole thing. Most men would run screaming from that kind of situation, where their girlfriend is publicly demanding/teasing them about getting engaged. Jamie might be a better man than we thought.

    Oh, hollywood and its celebrities. A timeline for engagement? The two of them have barely been together, she certainly moves fast. I wonder how long this relationship will last.

  2. Neelyo says:

    She’s always reeked of desperation to me. And a stunt like this seems to guarantee that Kennedy will slip off into the night and she’ll wake up alone with a Post-it on the pillow next to her.

  3. Linda says:

    She is not the first woman nor will she be the last woman to have a timeline!!! It happens all the time and I think if most women thought about it – they’d admit that they pushed and proded their significant other in to the big commitment.

    I really wish I would have the balls to push for a commitment on my last relationship and say – hey it’s either by this date or we are done – I wouldn’t have wasted 5 years on thinking that I was in a relationship headed for a lasting commitment – his idea and my idea were two different things.

  4. Anoneemouse says:

    She seems to be infatuated with the idea of engagement and planning a wedding, but doesn’t seem to ever make it to the alter. I have heard of serial-dating but serial-engager? Maybe that’s her.

  5. Annie says:

    She’s nuts….

    The timeline is slightly crazy but not uncommon, it’s the part where she calls him out on the radio about this timeline.

    Yea…she’s probably the best he’ll ever do…but still…

  6. clare says:

    I read it as said in jest by Jennifer.

  7. saintdevil says:

    Note to JLH: Next time, hold up the “irony on” sign when making comments like that.
    Seemingly blogs are just waiting to depict women as needy, clingy and desperate due to being “over the hill” from age 30 on.

  8. Lem says:

    he asked…

  9. Courtney H says:

    I don’t think it’s all that crazy. They’re in their 30s, and a year and some odd months isn’t an unusually short amount of time to be together before becoming engaged. It’s shorter than I prefer, but I’m also 10 years younger than her, so I don’t feel the internal and external pressure to get married soon.

  10. ChristinaT says:

    why is she even dating him? malibu’s most pukiest… ewwww… totally gross (yes that was juvenile :-p)

  11. Casey says:

    There’s nothing wrong with wanting to know someone’s long term thoughts, but she does seem like getting married is more important than the “to who” part.

    3 months isn’t a really long time to be dating. She should just take a step back and enjoy herself for awhile. The worst that could happen is she’d get to know him better and figure out if he’s really the guy for her.

  12. Maritza says:

    I’m on Jennifer’s side, she has the right to know if she is wasting her time or not. I bet she has been dreaming with her wedding dress and party for years.

  13. MSat says:

    She definitely took a downgrade when she hooked up with him. I’ve met Jamie Kennedy in person and he’s an economy-size douchebag. Plus, he smells.

  14. the original kate says:

    i don’t get the whole “wasting my time” thing so many women throw out. how is it a waste of your time? not every relationship should or will end in matrimony. maybe instead of viewing these relationships as wasted time you could actually learn something about yourself and life from each person you are with. if you push for a wedding with someone who isn’t ready you will probably end up divorced, which is just a wasted relationship that costs alot more to get out of.

  15. westindya says:

    hello, people! she is obviously wasting her time. anytime you have to create a commitment ultimatum, it’s time to find another chap.

    and it’s not wasting time. dating does not equal marriage in every relationship. it is what it is for what it is. come on.

  16. paris herpes says:

    Damn they’re both pretty big losers. I hate Jamie Kennedy, and Jennifer is so desperate to get married…like she’s nobody without the ring on her finger. Whatever dude.

  17. fizXgirl314 says:

    well, in LALA land that sounds like a great idea… dating perpetually with absolutely no expectations… but in the real world, women have biological clocks… that’s an actual fact, not like an urban legend or anything

  18. Annie says:

    She definitely took a downgrade when she hooked up with him. I’ve met Jamie Kennedy in person and he’s an economy-size douchebag. Plus, he smells.

    My boyfriend met him at a strip club, says he’s the smarmiest dude ever and he’ll always have that image of Kennedy just having all these broads giving him lapdances and him reclining like it ain’t no thang.

    But I mean, again, I don’t think it’s the timeline issue, it’s the putting him on blast that’s the crazy part.

  19. Kelly-Michelle says:

    Someone name all the guys Jennifer Love Hewitt has been engaged to.

  20. morgs says:

    Carson Daly, That dude that was with her when she had a bountiful booty…did she get engaged to that guy who sang the song about Abercrombie and Fitch…

    Did she and Bailey get engaged on Party of 5? (obviously on the TV show, I just can’t remember).
