Kenny Chesney is running for “least appealing schlep in Hollywood” and I think — unsurprisingly — he’s in the lead today.
Remember when he and Renee Zellweger married abruptly in 2005? I mean, to me, that came way out of the blue. Total shocker. I’d been a long-time fan of Renee’s, but couldn’t give a crap less about Kenny Chesney or whatever “country-western” singing star it was that I used to confuse Chesney with anyway. I thought it was one of those crazy, impetuous things that just sort of happened (hello, Mrs. Britney Alexander) ’cause it’s Hollywood. Shit like this tends to go down every few seconds there.
The couple was said to meet during a Concert for Hope benefit, where Renee answered telephones and Chesney performed. The two were married a few months later — first marriages for both — in the Virgin Islands and the marriage was annulled mere months later. Renee cited “fraud” as the basis for the couple’s annulment.
However, Chesney, who’s only spoken briefly about his 4-month (or so) marriage to Zellweger, spoke to Oprah this past weekend about the specifics of the marriage and subsequent annulment:
“Country superstar Kenny Chesney was on Oprah Friday, and as only she can do, Oprah got him to talk about his short-lived marriage to Renee Zellweger.
The pair met in January 2005, married in May 2005 and had the marriage annulled that September, citing “fraud.”
After Kenny talked about how busy he is, Oprah asked if the lack of time was what happened to his relationship with Renee.
He said, “that and the fact that I panicked.” Then he started talking about “the box” in which he put everything he values, like his friends and musical success, and how he worked to “protect it… I protected that box.” So, Oprah asked, where was his marriage to Renee?
“Well, it was out.. out of the box!”, he exclaimed with a maniacal laugh. But he did call Renee a “sweet soul.”
Chesney then said he still hoped to be married, but “felt that the idea of marriage made me lose my identity… I just don’t know that I’ve found anybody bigger than that.”
Yyyeah, Kenny, I don’t think you’re going to find anyone much bigger than Renee.
Or your ego.

Renee Zellweger seemed to have a series of unfortunate events as she left lunch in Venice. First she ran in to this weird dude in the photo above, then she struggled to find her keys in her big purse as she made her way to the car. Eventually she just had to squat down and really dig in there. Isn’t that always the way with these big purses, ladies?

A pair of hot new girlfriends, Renee Zellweger and Gloria Cooper, were seen strolling the streets of LA together yesterday while shopping and giggling up a storm just like every other group of girlfriends in this post-Sex and the City world. For those of you who aren’t sure who these broads are, Gloria is the chick that birthed Bradley Cooper and Renee is the whale that’s dating him. It sure looks like these two have gotten awfully close, I can practically hear the two of them cackling through the photos all like “You’re the best, NeeNee!” “No, Glores! You’re the best!” I can only imagine that after this marathon shopping spree, those two ladies headed straight to Gloria’s bedroom to indulge in a round of hot fudge sundaes and even more hot and juicy gossip. You know how girls are when you get them together!

Renee Zellweger and Bradley Cooper seem to be getting even cozier… but not too cozy! The two arrived at LAX on a flight from Canada yesterday, and while the two definitely exited the same plane, but once they stepped food off the aircraft, the two never were seen together. Renee went to baggage claim and got two massive suitcases, which she brought to her waiting car and left with. Bradley, on the other hand, strolled on out of the airport with nothing but a backpack, although there are no photos of him going to Renee’s car or anyone else’s car, for that matter. I’m thinking maybe Renee grabbed both their bags and they met up later? Either way, there’s something very “spy movie” about the whole thing.

“Women today are so skinny. If I did a love scene with them, I would crush them. If I did a love scene with Renee, I would kill her!”
– Actor Alec Baldwin describing what would happen if he was doing a sex scene with the extremely skinny Renee Zellweger. Ummm. Violent.

Things must be serious between Renee and that boyfriend of hers, Bradley Cooper. She’s gearing up for the latest installment of Bridget Jones, which usually includes eating a ton of food so that she can get “fat”.
However, this time she’ll be eschewing instead of chewing and wearing a fat suit instead. I guess she’ll have the frumpy body with that tiny little head. That won’t look strange at all.
Britain’s Reveal magazine also indicates that Renee was worried about the effect of gaining and losing 30 lbs. It’s true: as you get older, it gets more and more difficult to shed the ol’ Krispy Kremes, though I’m looking at these pics of Renee and feel like she could gain 20 or 30 lbs. and still look just fine.
