CelebriGum Newlyweds!

Congratulations to Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds!  It's the first CelebriGum marriage!

Their wedding this past weekend in South Carolina was the culmination of a fairytale romance that began last December at the annual CelebriGum Celebrity Reception.  Held in the Grand Ballroom of 1 CelebriGum Plaza, it's a chance for the year's CelebriGum subjects to mingle, enjoy complimentary hors d'oeuvres, and swap memories of favorite CelebriGum entries. 

I had the pleasure of introducing Blake and Ryan, and I could tell that they were hitting it off.  Weeks later, I was pleased to hear that they were dating, and as winter turned to spring both Blake and Ryan confided to me, "I think this might be the real deal."

I deeply regretted missing the wedding, which I'm told had a hilarious yet tasteful old gum theme.  I had a prior commitment: I was accepting the Dentyne Image Award at the Global Gum Infotainment Symposium in Bern, Switzerland.  However, I sent my well wishes in a letter which was read aloud at the reception by Bette Midler. (Thanks, Bette!  Hope to photograph you with the gum soon!)   

If I've accomplished nothing else with this silly project, at least I've helped two soulmates find each other.  Blake and Ryan, may your love be as long-lasting as old gum on a window ledge.


  1. Wonder if that wish for the couple, at the end of your entry, will now catch on as a widely used wedding toast? Well, it could, for now everyone will realize that CelebriGum is the #1 celebrity dating website[claim not yet verified by outside independent agencies, but surely that will happen momentarily]. Anyway, yesterday who could've known that CelebriGum was the online place for romance? Awwww ...


    1. The problem with that sentiment at the end, of course, is that while the gum may yet stay there a long while, it also could be gone at any time. So far it's been there about five years, I think.

      Still, I agree that CelebriGum is the hot new matchmaking site. Maybe in a year we'll have the first CelebriGum baby!

  2. I saw this post, but I don't have anything to add.

  3. I used to invest in the multinational corporation that developed 1 Celebrigum Plaza. Unfortunately that building was constructed with a glass curtain wall - so common in today's "lazy" architecture, which has the unintended effect of precluding windowsill-based gum. I no longer invest in that firm. By the way I'm very disappointed. Did Blake Lively even WATCH my personals video?

    1. After a lengthy, expensive lawsuit, the architect has agreed to retrofit the building with over 2000 gum ledges. The work should be completed by June 2015.

      Oh, and Blake did NOT watch your video. She asked me to screen the slush pile, and yours, while charming in its way, was not one of the ones I passed on. You may be getting a call from Amy Poehler, however. She and Will Arnett are the first members of the CelebriGum Divorce Club!

  4. Off topic, but just wanted you to know that I'll be stopping by the Kennedy Center this weekend to place some gum in strategic locations. Thinking about combining the gum with some Led.

    1. Great! Dirty old gum juxtaposed with Robert Plant's hair would be something. Please keep us posted.

    I actually crashed this wedding in South Carolina, and I have the taser marks to prove it. Sadly, I wasn't able to give 'em my wedding present: two tickets to Mississippi... :(

  6. This story is so beautiful. It made me cry.

    Maybe I've been working in daytime too long...

  7. Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if
    you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can advise?

  9. Hi! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a theme
    or plugin that might be able to fix this issue.
    If you have any recommendations, please share.
