Clooney Off The Market

images George Timothy Clooney, our favorite Taurean heartthrob, has finally tied the knot.

On Saturday in Venice, Italy surrounded by family and friends, he went the distance with the one woman who didn’t come with an expiration date.

Amal Alamuddin, a beautiful British/Lebanese girl with eyes the size of soup tureens, is the new Mrs. Heartthrob who happens to be one in her own right.

She’s not just beautiful, but smart and independent proving a man will respond to a woman with a brain when he sees what a plus it is. It must get pretty boring leaning over the dinner table every night asking, “So honey, how’s your scampi?”

He had everything else…a beautiful home in Como, Italy…one I’ve seen from afar along with a motorcycle collection that looks like an art installation.

Has a great relationship with his family…wealth…success, all he’s very generous with.

Who ever thought he’d hang up his bachelorhood for something solid and substantial after saying, he would never marry again (wed Talia Balsam in 1989, divorced in 1993).

I heard a woman at the Food Emporium snark because of their age difference. “It’s a little unda twen-ee yee-as,” she said, while buying 40 containers of Dannon Light.

“Maybe that’s just a coincidence,” I said, deciding all that dairy must be affecting her point of view.

She shook her head like a horse. “Doncha know the twen-ee yee-a roo-ul? Men want women twen-ee yee-as younga than them.”

Does that mean there’s some 80 year-old headed my way? Is that what she’s saying?

Fuck statistics and the horse they rode in on.

Brings to mind a remark an interviewer made to Clint Eastwood about marrying a much younger woman. Clint said without missing a beat, “Well if she dies, she dies.”

I love that. In other words, what’s your point asshole?

Older men with younger women makes sense since we’re notoriously more mentally advanced than they are, and of course sex helps when you don’t feel like throwing that casserole in the oven.

For the record, I could be with the hottest man in the world, but if he’s boring with no interests or conversation, that’s when my milk expires…but back to the groom.

George Clooney is a great guy. He stands up for people…notices their plight and digs deep into his own pockets trying to make a difference.

He too was asked a stupid question by a journalist after giving a great deal of money to some cause. “George, that was a lotta dough,” the reporter said, “whatever made you do that?”

George said without a blink of a big, brown eye, “Because I can.”

I think he waited so long simply because he could.

Here’s wishing them all the best.

    You’d think, given the veritable cornucopia of choice available to him and the length of time he’s been sat on the fence, the he would get it right. Although I don’t know the new Mrs Clooney, she certainly seems to tick a lot of boxes. I’ll bet she looks pretty good in biking leathers too.


    • She’s quite a beauty, equal to him. Can’t imagine what it must be like to be her…like winning the jackpot when you were already pretty much a winner.

      Thanks for reading…nice to wake up to a Mickism 🙂

        Again, I’m short on detail, but neither of them strike me as coasters. These people decide what they want, then work hard to make sure they get it. Winning becomes a habit. It helps if you’re drop dead gorgeous as well. (But, of course, you already know that…) 😉


      • If I knew that Mick…where’s my George Clooney…stuck in traffic…LOL

    It may take that 80-year-old a while to catch up to you – but then again – who knows, he may surprise you! 😉

    Ahhh! The 20-year rule! My ex traded me in for someone “just unda twenty yee-as” but at the time I was 40 which is the prime of life! Hope it works out for the Clooneys. The press has been kind to them (or else they aren’t stupid enough to do stupid things that get blasted around). As for you, you would kill an 80-year-old so you better stick to guys your own age or maybe younger.


    • You’re very funny, especially for a Monday…were you just at the drive-thru Starbucks?

      Yes, you’re right…no one wrote anything snarky…and the pictures of them…oh so glam. She’s amazing looking and he…well…he’s our generation’s Cary Grant 🙂

    Nice post, Susannah. My youngest son and daughter each have mates that are 15 years their senior, and have been together for 5tand 2 years. You never know when you’ll meet that special someone and what their age, etc will be.


  5. There was a 20 year difference between my parents and I never even noticed. I LOVE George and couldn’t be happier he found someone wonderful. I enjoyed looking at all of her outfits this weekend….her arms are stunning.
