Good News About Hollywood Marriages, For a Change

Lynne here! Well, not below, because that’s Osmond people!!

ABC News’ 20/20 just did a special called “Hollywed”, which took an inside look at celebrity marriages.  And it kinda started out the way you might expect, with tales of the recent spate of famous divorces, and even a thing about the shortest celebrity marriages.  But just when you were feeling good and jaded, or superior, or just plain sad at either the seeming frivolousness or the heartbreak of it all, the show took a happy turn! They talked about famous people who have actually stayed together!! First they featured Gene Simmons of KISS and Shannon Tweed, who have been together for 28 years but got married just last year, after Shannon threatned to finally walk out after years of Gene’s infidelity if he didn’t change his ways. And he did. And they are happy.  Then they talked to Donny Osmond and his wife Debra, who have been married for over 30 years and raised 5 smiling sons.  And they were refreshing and honest and loyal and happy.  Next was Allison “Sami Brady” (Days of Our Lives shout-out, y’all!!) who has been married to her police officer husband for almost 12 years, giving hope that celebrities can actually have relationships with us normal folk and be happy.  And the last spot was about Isaac, Taylor and Zac Hanson AKA dreamy rock band Hanson, most famous for the insanely catchy “Mmbop”, which I know you are all singing now that I mentioned it.  All three brothers got married, relatively young, to Hanson fans, and all look completely, well, HAPPY.

And that’s the point, I guess.  It was really, really refreshing to see a show put as much energy into happy people as it does into drama and distress. Good on you, ABC News. And good for the rest of us. Who like happy.
