[Blind Gossip] It was the end of a relationship that was doomed from the beginning. It was another opportunity to make herself look like the heroine.
We told you a long time ago that this was no love match. It was a set up to give her a man when that big fish wriggled off the hook. Because, as we have discussed before, she always has to look desirable. She always has to have a man around who wants her. It’s part of her image.
It’s easy to get an employee to fill the gap. More money? More fame? Heck, yeah! Where do I sign up?
He agreed to be shoehorned into the plot as a love interest at the last minute, and scenes were re-shot to make it look like he had been in love with her all along, just waiting in the wings for that moment when she would notice that he was the man for her.
She also paid him a hefty allowance – above and beyond his salary – plus more money if she wanted him to buy a gift for her. Of course she took care of all his “new” expenses. You can’t have the love interest of a superstar sharing an apartment with a bunch of other kids his age and driving a janked-up Honda. So she paid for a new apartment, and a new car, and new clothes, and new jewelry.
To match her eternal classiness, she even dressed him up in a tuxedo. “You shine up like a new penny!” she exclaimed when she saw him.
No, wait. That was the Unsinkable Molly Brown dressing up Jack Dawson in a tuxedo in Titanic.
Same thing. This ship was eventually going to go down, and our girl was going to save herself but come out looking like the heroine.
When it was time to end the relationship, she wasn’t Molly Brown anymore. She was Rose Dewitt Bukater, and there simply wasn’t enough room on the big door for the both of them.
He had practically signed his life away for the money, so when it came time to cut him loose, she could spin the story as she pleases. She was the kind, benevolent one just in it for love… and he was the angry, jealous, greedy lover who couldn’t handle being in her shadow. She couldn’t have someone like that around her and her kids! She needed to save her kids and save herself!
“I’ll never let go!” she cried… as she let go.
Meh. He was no big fish.
