Remembering the 80's

So I walk into the living room tonight to see husband looking beet red. And completely stricken, as if I'd caught him in some kind of mischief. Turns out he was watching the new Denise Richard's reality show and "forgot" to tell me it was on.

I've been teasing him about the show since the previews first aired. Husband dated Denise when they were both at Herrick Junior High in Downers Grove. He claims that all he remembers was that she had kind of big lips and he thinks she might have had braces.


Based on his flustered state, I'm thinking the show might have jogged his memory. It totally made me remember that I'm supposed to be on a diet.

I had a similar experience tonight, I came in from having drinks with a friend and my husband was watching Star Trek. He literally ran up to the TV to point out which alien extra he had met in an elevator at a Sci-Fi Conference years ago.

OK, not as glamorous as Denise.

Think of it! Your husband picked you over Denise Richards! Her eyebrows look a little bit too shaggy in that photo. You also really have the blonde thing going on.

My husband likes blonde country singers and I'll catch him watching CMT. He doesn't like the music, just the wholesome sexiness. That is until they talk and it ruins the illusion.

HAAAAHahaha!Oh, that's funny. I could just see MY husband in that situation..like; "Yeah, I could've had her." :-)
*It totally made me remember that I'm supposed to be on a diet.* Dude--exactly what I would've thought.

I say your husband got the better end of that deal. No amount of pretty is worth that kind of nuttiness.

For god sake, she was trying to get her pig pregnant. Can you say too much time on your hands?

Well Husband can thank his lucky stars that he wasn't the target of Denise's "tranny prostitute infested sperm" tirade!

Jennifer - Indeed. Though I imagine my tirades might give her a run for her money. They just aren't in US magazine. Yet.

I watched that show, and Denise is crazy. He pretty much dodged a bullet by choosing you.

So I must admit I DVR'D the 3 ring circus, only of course to make myself feel better about my own life. After watching, it worked...I felt MUCH better! Your hubby should send you flowers...you saved his life!!

He dated her? That's so funny! And in Jr. High even, that association could land him in US Weekly!
