    My spidey sense tells me that this is some sort of publicity stunt.

    That chick looks like she’s 16 going on 35.

    I told my boyfriend about this story and he WILL NOT believe she’s 16. He keeps pointing to her armpit skin like its the f*ckin magic bullet in the JFK trial.

    Did this chick live in Vegas? Because 16 in Vegas is like 47 with a cigarette habit everywhere else. And that scream you hear is every single real breast in the Northern hemisphere crying out in indignation that this b*tch is telling people her breasts are rawl.

      Maybe her breasts are *rill*, she’s just got them covered in layers of padded bras! But waaaaay under there, she’s all rill!

      Also haven’t seen many natural blondes with dark roots. Just saying.

      “Because 16 in Vegas is like 47 with a cigarette habit everywhere else.” Can you elaborate on this statement? For rill….I’m curious what you meant by that…..

        Its very dry in the desert. Wrinkles you up like a prune.

        Also, there’s the drunken debauchery.

        Thank you. I honestly had a hard time getting that. I hear about how dry it is in Vegas all the time. But, I didn’t realize some people may think that living here could cause you to look like THAT shriveled up rat by age 16. Not even the Vegas desert and liquor intake levels could be the main cause of looking so… um…Rill?

        My favorite was when he mimed her brushing her (dyed) hair out of her face with her (fake) fingernails. He’s dreamy, for ril. Even though he’s 44 and I am 24 which is a much, much smaller number. 😉

    I keep thinking she has a purse around her neck in that music video.

    And how could she even do pornography if she’s sixteen? Although I’m still wondering how it’s legal for her to marry a 51 year old at 16 even with parental permission.

      Yes, apparently statutory rape is ok if the parents approve and nevada gives a marriage license.

        I’m not saying it isn’t ick, but 16 is the legal age of consent in some states. So not necessarily statutory rape. Though still……ew. So wrong.

        True, but not in all states. In California it’s either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances, to have sexual intercourse with a person under age 18 who is more than three years younger than the actor … which IS the case for this 51-year old actor. But when they move there, you know, for their up-and-coming careers, California has to accept it simply because her pimp parents approved and Nevada gave them that piece of paper that says you’re married. … Lovely.

        Yup. That’s similar to the law in my state as well (14-17, its legit only if the person is within three years, after 18, anything is fair game). But i wasn’t sure where they’d be living, so figured i’d throw it out there that the law is not the same across the board.

    Shouldn’t the actor be locked up for being a pedophil? I know there is permission but I would think it is still statutory rape. Ewwwwww.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if, legally speaking, it’s not statutory rape if they’re married.

      Also, technically, being attracted to a 16 year old isn’t classified as pedophilia. Pedophilia refers to people being sexually attracted to prepubescent children, and I think we can all agree that this girl has hit puberty some time ago.

    There was a girl in high school that looked just like that except she had bigger boobs. WTF there’s lots worse things that happen then these to publicity hounds making the rounds. If the “marriage” lasts a year I’ll be surprised. Ya gotta admit she’s hot, ril hot. Like Anderson said, if it doesn’t work out Hef’s available. We should start a pool for how long before they split.

      Aaah the NYT Vows article was creeptastic…especially because it totally glossed over the weirdness of the whole situation and yet it was inescapable–like when they discussed how they didn’t date at first because her father made her come straight home after school.

      Very funny column, btw.

        The NYT one was creepy but, for me, not as creepy as the 51-year-old-marries-16-year-old. At least in the NYT article, they didn’t start dating til she got to college and it’s only an 11 year difference. The whole never-kissed-a-guy may not be so odd if her father is truly as strict as she implied.

    If this story is real, then I am disgusted. I would love for her “parents” to be beaten, publicly.

    As a former 16 year old “bride” to a 30 year old (who looked 40), I can tell you that it won’t last. At most – 3 years. And that is with kids. Unless he starts beating her, and she might stick around a few extra years. Even then, eventually, she will leave.

        well there’s video of her when she was 14, at a beauty pageant. She looked about the same then. So I’m assuming that she is for real. The pageant would have determined her age.
