Maybe we are looking at it wrong. The readers are dysfunctional.

I think you are onto something. Look how many thread MTI posts about subjects he then ridicules. Something about hanging with who he believes to be lower than himself. Shortly after that all the left leaning bonobos are hooting...

Since it is your thread, can I ask why you think it's even worth printing?
We can all be judges of "newsworthy." It's a national story as of yesterday, but I understand you don't GAS, but thanks for reading and posting.

The couple seemed happy moving into their new KY home together . . .

So no real reason why YOU seem to GAS? I thought the question was pretty simple but maybe you didn't grasp it? I don't know whether to GAS or not if I don't see how this isn't any different from someone deciding not to marry someone else. I broke up with my ex and it wasn't newsworthy so I want to know what would have gotten our names in the paper for our 15 minutes of fame.

And it's related to the question, how?

Once again, not saying I GAS or not. Just curious as to why it is even worthy of a mention hence the question to the OP, which is YOU. What is really interesting is you don't even seem to know why YOU find something newsworthy.

Wow, that's very insightful of you. I did not realize you were so curious in knowing what interests or motivates me. I am honored by your earnest attention.

Just curious to see if there is a decent answer or if it is inconvenient to you. My money at this time is on inconvenient.

Well, wouldn't want to jump to conclusions when I see someone dancing around a straightforward answer so best to ask before making that leap. I take it the answer is inconvenient to your appearance?

Take whatever inference you like. I do post what interests me and appear worth sharing.

There is a rumor in the entertainment world that the production company that was set to film this had some sort of snag in the rights, or couldn't iron out a contract detail or something and backed out. So the party will go on but there will not be a wedding. No wedding, no need for a film company to show up since there will be nothing to sell later.

For a shoot like this you don't just pick some guy out of the yellow pages. Contracts are agreed on months in advance since you have to show the network what you plan to deliver. And they you have to deliver what you said you would or you will not get paid.

So while there might be no wedding it is a moot point as far as the two talents are concerned since they apparently have been living together for some time. Once a new contract is signed the whole show will take place.

And it is impossible to say what deep sixed the shoot. Every detail must be in place and the smallest thing could derail it. The same producers might still be involved if whatever is holding things up is resolved.

And like I said, this is a rumor so take it for what it is worth. But I would think it has more truth to it than the rumor that the US Army is going to take over Texas and look at how many people bought into that tall-tale.
