Hollywood Marriage Odds - well, sort of.

Turnstile marriages. Pam Anderson and Kid Rock to marry while Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro to divorce.

I used to get excited when celebs got married (especially Jen and Brad – I thought they were the sh_t and would last longer than Nicole and Tom).

Chad Lowe and Hilary Swank. Another one you thought would make it. Toast. I’m holding my breath on Reese and Ryan. I do hope they make it.

But Pam and Kid. Allegedly the date of the nuptials is 7-29-06. Already? That quick?

This sort of smells like the old post several-bottles-of-red-wine conversation of: “if we’re not married to someone else by, uh, hmmm, let's see, the end of July, 2006, we’re getting married!” Or in my case it started with an age – 30 I believe, and then moved to 40.

Thankfully I didn’t have to go that route.

Do you think this Pam/Kid thing was alcohol induced like Pam and Tommy? Or merely a deadline that was met?

Lately, instead of looking forward to a celeb wedding, I’ve been betting against myself on how long until the divorce. My friends won’t bet me, not because I’m good at predicting the time until the big D but, well, they pretty much don’t care and have better things to do with their time.

I think I’ll start a spreadsheet or T-Bar. You know, to add to all my others. Baby name spreadsheets, pros and cons of various subjects, whether it would be safer to eat tacos or burritos for lunch. You get the idea.

I LOVE odds. Statistics. Betting. Guessing, trying to KNOW etc. Maybe it’s because I don’t like surprises so when Chad and Hilary split, I felt blindsided. Didn’t see that one coming. Not happy.

Now, if I could just get a real insider tip on Crazy Tom and sad-sack Katie. I bet this one would have ended already. At least I only bet myself so I didn’t lose too much.

You'll know - funny girl! If they were at my last party I'm sure I'd be quite popular. Well, or not.
