looking at these photos, it doesnt look like john really put too much of interest in really making a great 50th party.  gees the cake speaks for itself. and the pics of the two together, john dont look like he has that "head over in heels "  beaming in love look

yes john my prayer partners and i are still praying for you. we still havent given up on you.

keep the faith / peace & love

You crack me up marilyn.!! So the party was not good enough!? ::) lol!


 The smiling and cuddling up together, they look pretty happy
As for the cake John didnt make it or even SEE it before he got there.

She is like John. She does not like fancy stuff  or big deal made about her.  Too fly in 7 of her friends was amazing. It was obviously meant to be a small intimate dinner party.

Your negativity about this couple is off putting per usual. Let em be FCOL. Go someplace and analyze Irwin's relationship with her Boyfriend now. Nice of you to wish meg Happybirthday BTW :D.

im glad i made your day mellenfan. its always nice to put a smile on someones face.

what im wondering is where her freinds pictures and johns boys pictures. all i see is a cake, the couple who made the cake and john looking down instead of into megs eyes. i dont see any cuddling. body language says alot. oh i forgot and the pics of john performing in his concert.

and of course he booked in advance, he had a concert that night. but wouldnt you think that if john was really into meg he wouldnt of booked a concert on her birthday?

by the way i am including you in prayer with my prayer partners and i as we also pray for john. Gods peace be with you

keep the faith / peace & love

I agree with Marilyn, its a party booked in advance for a friend.

Oh so organising a surprise party for your girlfriend and flying in five of her best friends from across the country is not showing interest huh? WHATEVER. They've been together for a year now.

The photos to me show a restaurant secretly trying to take some pix -it's obvious they are both uncomfortable with it - and then betraying their trust by giving them to the media to get attention for the restaurant. That's low, considering the money John spent there. As for the cake, that obviously was made by the restaurant itself as a gift. They should have tried harder.

uh huh john and elaine were together for 18 years. so what does that say? 1 year with meg makes all the difference?
judging by the picture of the owner of the restaurant, meg and the other gal, yeah they sure do look uncomfortable. looks like theyre all smiles to me. and theyre looking rite at the camera these 3 except meg is looking down with a big smile. yeah right
you know what? meg has not been in the spotlight for years. now all of sudden for the last year she is getting a lot of attention becuz she gets next to john (while he is still married to elaine regardless wether they were having difficulties or not, or getting a divorce or not) and then all of sudden shes in the spotlight. i pray to God that she is not using john for this purpose. becuz in my experience of working and knowing limelight people, this has been known to happen and it happens all the time. in fact its normal to use someone for those purposes. remember meg is an actress

keep the faith / peace & love

Her publicist has been pretty busy announcing things with her approval which is obvious. The write up did not say John paid for every bodies trip. They were invited. I definitely agree with you Marilyn. Time will tell.


Title: Re: meg's 50th party with john
Post by: Rhonda2 on November 25, 2011, 01:31:31 am
Her publicist hasn't been announcing anything to the media, sheila. The only time he spoke up was to immediatly deny the wedding rumors.

As for her getting media attention, marylinb, there is a reason for that: see, like it or not, she is wayyyyyyy more famous than John is. In fact, she's still world-famous, even though her career has faded. That means when she dates someone, the media will be paying attention to it.

Yep, he was married to Elaine for 18 years. And then he divorced her. Now he's with Meg. Better get used to it.

You said it Rhonda2, her career had faded and now she needs to get herself known again. At what cost? Poor John?

ohhh moderators, Can we a stop these same two posters. This is ridiculous
 :o

Judging  and insulting a woman you don't know (and never will) is ridiculous and it got old a long time ago.


Meg has never talked to the press(or has her publicist) or has said anything publically about John. She is as private as he is. John even said he felt bad for meg because the photogs follow her around.

 
.
maybe the moderators want to refrain from posting articles about meg/john relationship. Cause a couple of posters  cant handle it :D

TY Mellenfan71.

Marylinb, leave me out of your prayers, I didnít ask for them, I sure donít need them, and I donít want them, certainly not coming from you.  ;D

As for Meg Ryan, if she wanted attention from the media, she could easily get it. She sure doesnít need John - or any other man - for that. She is still way more famous than he is. Not to mention sheís super rich, probably has a lot more $$$ than John.  Itís obvious neither one of them is seeking the mediaís attention. The only ones who have so far spoken about the relationship to the media are in fact Johnís publicist and John himself.

She can do no right in your eyes, can she. No matter what she does, youíd always find something wrong with it. But then again I get the feeling this isnít about Meg Ryan, is it? Seems to me this is all about John & Elaineís divorce.....

Anyway, this thread was about John throwing a surprise birthday party for his girfriend. That was a nice gesture. Thatís the last thing Iíll say about it. Have fun blaming Meg Ryan for whatever.

It seems that marilynb is the one that wants the attention.  I said it before, quit reading her posts if they upset you.  Although, I have been reading them again after a few months of not readidng then and now I laugh out loud.  I used to try to bark back but it just is not worth the effort. The only time she chimes in is when there is NO news or chats from last night's show or if his is not living his day to day life like she thinks he should live it.  She thrives on bragging about praying for us all that don't agree with her and trying to save John's life instead of focusing on the things we love about JM.  You can't reason with people like this so just give up.  Life is too short.  Who cares about his personal life?  Instead.......How about if we all hope and pray that he keeps writing and singing and touring.  These prayers have been answered for years.  Thanks John for caring about your fans. I know that this is very important to you.  You never disappoint your true fans.

Marilynb cares about John like the rest of us JM fans. Freedom of speech is always condemned by others especially in John's early career. He pissed many people off for what he felt about things. That what makes him so special, he is a awesome man. Time will tell and pictures don't lie. We can only wish everybody the best and leave it in God's hands. Enough said.

LOL  Yet you two are the ones on this board insulting Meg Ryan for no reason.
You claim to be a fan but take shots at his girlfriend.

mellenfan, rhonda and dusty if you really want to see some real downright nasty insults, i would suggest very strongly and go to the first post where rene posted the article about the birthday party and read the comments that some of the readers commented.
 
what really hurts the most is when i read people dont care about a celebrity except that they only care as long as they write songs and sing them. you know i have worked with these people. at a christian rock concert barry mcguire (who is famous back in the '60s for "eve of destruction") said one time, that the artists can write all these songs, put their heart and soul into it, and the people come to the concerts, they listen and get all pumped up but he said he wondered how many were really listening and how many were willing to carry the message after they left the concert becuz people are screaming for rights but nobody wants to be responsible.

with that in mind you 3 have to ask yourselfs if john is a human being or a human doin?

shiela you are so right time will tell and its in Gods hands the safest place it can be. and i dont think John would have any arguement there
until this pattern that john has been repeating over and over again with women in his life, he will keep getting what hes getting no lasting relationship or marriage and there wont be a woman who would be able to stand a chance with him. john deserves to be happy joyous and free but only he can be the one that says enuf is enuf, its funny reading the articles how he changed the lyrics in small town "married a couple of woman................" or however he wants to rephrase that piece its there to read and at the end of the sentence of the song he sings "or is it just me?" hmmmmmmmmmm makes me wonder if he has been reading my posts. yep john doesnt have to keep doing this anymore if he dont want to.

Happy Belated Birthday Meg!  My 50th is two months away.  Each of us can count the blessing that we get to enjoy another day when another passes us by.  By the way, I would care about his personal life if I was a part of his! He certainly is a part of mine and I could not imagine my life without his SONG.  Whatever it may be at the time. I listened "John Mellencamp" Album from 1998 this morning and every song made me tear up. His influence for me to find a happy life can not be measured.  He follows his heart. Hearts can be fullfilled or broken at times, It's life.  I found happiness in 1998.  This album is "Ours"....  On Thanksgiving Day I personally thanked the Good Lord for John and his voice, this is one blessing that I will never take for granted......... The other is my Love and Happiness.  It was a thankful Thanksgiving in so many ways.

thank you dusty that you see john as a human being not a human doin. thats what these people are. its a reality. and there is nothing wrong in reaching out. it takes courage cuz one can set oneself up for rejection or acception. and in johns case i think he knows that very well. but like barry mcguire said at the concert i was at years ago as i mentioned above thats where its at. carrying the message

heres a  clip you may find enjoyable (and in fact even you mellenfan and rhonda may like it.) it contains barry mcguire singing a special song

as i responded to shielas post, time will tell. and only john can put an end to this endless cycle of his repeating pattern of his relationship with women. until he does no woman will stand a chance to have a healthy one with him. and i believe that john can break this pattern but its been his survival all his life. its like the alcoholic who has drank all their life, they cant see their life without alcohol until a miracle breakthru comes from above. i know i was one of them. going on 29 yrs jan 1st. and like i said i lived the same pattern (and countless others who dealt with codependency) in relationships like john, and it was my survival for years until i finally realized the hurting stopped when i wanted it to. there is no comparison here, there are the similarities. am i repeating myself? of course, becuz i wont tell noone what they want to hear, as it would only be unfair. i would be only lying.

and rhonda too late i already put you on the prayer list and mellenfan you are too. Gods peace be with you.

and mellenfan if i was to be banned from this forum, it still wouldnt take away the things that people had read what i said. the posts may be erased, but people do have memories.

keep the faith / peace & love

whoops, this posting got a bit feisty. if you read the story again, at the end it says that a photo of elaine and jay penske is in the dec. vogue. so as you refer to john as a guy who discards women, do know that penske is known to do the same. he's a uber playboy interested in getting into the fashion world, i.e. publishing. he's dated many a women his senior and collects famous names. so, it kind of goes both ways, right? penske, at 32, and extremely wealthy, is known to eventually -- eventually -- want to start a family. i don't expect a marriage here. but it's a good entry back into the world for the former mrs. mellencamp. anyone know how she met penske? was it when she drove the indy pace car? and might they have had mutual crushes while elaine was still married? never point a finger at just one person. it always takes too. coincidental that penske has a race team, etc.?

Post by: marilynb on November 29, 2011, 11:41:51 am
you are so right rene. it takes 2 but i did make a post awhile back i guess people forgot. that when it comes to relationship split ups and divorces noone is right and noone is wrong.  also the article mentions penske and elaine were in the dec vanity fair. i researched it and it mentions it. did you also know that the bloomington herald has a special section for john. i dont know how i found it i had to do some navigation.
i dont expect everyone to get what i am saying reaching out to john. im not bashing john, just bringing up the attention of repetitive patterns and sharing that i was where he was at one time and i can relate to where he is at. but there is a better way and if i can do it and countless other codependents can come out of this type of pattern, so can john. its not a crime to care about another human being enuf to want to reach out to them. there is a difference between that and bashing them. as i have said i have worked with limelight people and its the norm to hop around. but john has a good heart and he doesnt have to be part of "that kind of norm"
its true that it looks like he may of moved on pyshically. but what about mentally and emotionally. and this is what i care about. he is a good song writer, carrys a strong message, but we have to remember, these celebrities are still human beings not human doins. i remember that barry mcguire said that and that has stuck with me when i heard him tell that. and this is what i care about john.
and yeah im alot like john. i am the same. i say whats on my mind and yes i do have a to tendency to piss people off. however i believe like john he doesnt roll over and play dead to nobody and neither do i

keep the faith / peace & love

well written Marilynb, People have the tendences to think the worst of poeple first, especially when they told the something they don't want to hear which is usually the truth.
