Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp split

I must admit, I totally forgot that Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp were ever dating. They totally were! They’ve been together since 2011! Some people were even saying they were going to get married! That last bit unfortunately isn’t going to happen now, however, because just as quickly as their love was bestowed upon us (or me, since I forgot), it’s been cruelly ripped away: they’ve broken up.

From People:

“It was the distance,” a source tells PEOPLE. “She lives in New York and he resides in Indiana. It was the long distance that ultimately was the cause.”

The pair – who were last spotted together in May – became an item in late 2010, shortly after Mellencamp’s split from wife Elaine after 18 years of marriage.

Ah, what a shame. But wait – Mellencamp lives in INDIANA? That’s a bit random. Not necessarily a city you’d pick if you were in the height of your music career, I would think, but hey, to each his own.

Meg Ryan Is Getting Her Own NBC Sitcom

I can’t remember where I read it recently, but I think it was Robin Williams who said he was pursuing TV work because that’s where the money seems to be these days. I guess Meg Ryan got that memo, since she’s just signed on to star in and produce her own NBC sitcom. The series, by Family Ties writer Marc Lawrence, will see Meg as a former bigtime New York editor returning to the industry. Sounds potentially promising.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

In the half-hour single-camera comedy from writer and former Family Ties Emmy nominee Marc Lawrence, Ryan will play a sunny, devoted and desperately nonconfrontational single mom who decides to return to her New York publishing house where she was once a brilliant editor to find that she now works for Brenda, a neurotic 30-year-old who was once her former intern. Now she must find a way to keep her boss, her teenage kids, her almost ex-husband and her meddlesome mother-in-law all happy, which results in her overcomplicating every situation and somehow always making it worse.

Ryan will executive produce the project with manager Jane Berliner for Universal Television and Lawrence’s Reserve Room Productions.

When’s the last time you’ve seen Meg Ryan in, well… anything besides TBS’s numerous showings of When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle? This could be a career comeback, or it could be a total flop. That remains to be seen, but I’d at least give it a go.
