So here we are, guys. Jumping from one methed-out looking dude to another methed-out looking dude. However? At least this particular methed-out looking dude has enough style savvy to splurge on a sapphire-and-diamond encrusted engageroo that looks much like the late Princess Diana’s betrothal ring.
The only difference? Boyfriend did not go to Jared – it looks more like the Kay Jeweler Princess Diana twentieth anniversary commemorative composite ring to me. I mean, if he wanted to do it up TOTALLY classy, he should have gone for the Titantic-themed blue diamond stone necklace. If that doesn’t say love and class, man, what does?

I was just reading up on Jodie Sweetin‘s engagement to some bro named Morty Coyle (dorkiest name ever) and I wanted to share with you this list of “facts” that People.com printed about the former meth head and child actor’s fiance:
1. He’s a musician – and more
Though often pegged simply as a Hollywood deejay, Coyle, 42, not only spins and mixes, but he’s also a musician. He got his start singing in a band called the Imposters, which regularly played the Viper Room and the Roxbury. Hollywood born-and-bred, Coyle’s now in a band called All Day Sucker, and he performs at regular Tuesday night jam sessions with The F.O.C.K.R.’s (Friends of Canter’s Kibitz Room) in L.A., where he proposed. It’s also how he met Sweetin nearly two years ago. “One night I went to see a mutual friend play and Morty and I started hanging out and later dated,” says Sweetin. “We sort of couldn’t help it. It was just right.”
2. He didn’t watch his future sweetie on Full House
While his now-fiancé was winning hearts on an ABC “TGIF”s sitcom, Coyle had other plans. “I was trying to sneak out of the house on Friday nights,” he jokes. “I was at a different age. Sometimes I forget that people grew up with her.” When Coyle catches a rerun now, though, he’s on his own. “Jodie cannot watch herself on television,” he says. “It’ll come on and I’ll go, ‘Hey, look at what you’re wearing!’ And she’ll walk by, like, ‘Ah, yeah.’ ” Read More
And pardon me if it’s insensitive, but it’s almost kind of like a ‘no duh’ moment, am I right? Anyone growing up in the eighties and nineties watching the myriad of corny shows like Full House, Charles in Charge, or Growing Pains knew that there was something off with Candace’s weight, much like there was with Tracey Gold on Growing Pains. She fluctuated almost every episode from full-faced, chubby-armed child, to lean and tall middle schooler, to heavy high schooler and then back to skinny-bodied lollipop-headed college student. And this was just during the filming of the show. If that’s not a big, flashing indicator of an eating disorder, apparently nothing is.
Candace, in light of her previous struggles, has penned a memoir, Reshaping It All, which documents her battle against bulimia and chronicles her life through (and after) the Full House period.
I always thought Candace C was the height of cute in the eighties, even if she did dress like a phosphorescent Day-Glo factory on fire. At the very least, she was better than Jodie Sweetin, and we all know how that crazy bitch turned out. Cameron’s new book is due out on Friday and I’m actually interested in reading it. Once it hits the library, anyway. I’m a big library fan.
