I didn’t know they were together.
I didn’t know they were together.
Chris has been through a few fellow tennis player, a skier, and a golfer. I guess a bowler is next.
All athletes, all have ended badly. Maybe she needs a nerd.
Me neither! I thought she was married to the guy who was a 3rd baseman for the Reds.
Damn, that's what I get for not subscribing to People Magazine. I'm out of touch! ;~))
Not only People Mag. ESPN has it as well.
I thought it odd they hooked up originally - but hoped the best for them. It’s sad. Perhaps 1 too many Alpha’s in the room??
At 54, expectations for ???? are ?????
Been on the wedding-go-round a few times and no matter how great things are initially - the buzz quiets. I’ve always been okay with that, but the male seems to want to keep hunting for more.
Is that reality or just perception?
So did I. I thought all female tennis players are. So does that really mean that Greg Norman is really Norma Gregg?
you are thinking of Ray Knight and golfer Nancy Lopez
I didn’t know this either.
You must get bored easily, Nagdt.
Norman was coming off an ugly divorce from Laura Andrassy, the mother of his two children, which ended in a settlement that paid her just over $100 million. Evert was married twice previously, most recently to Olympic downhill skier Andy Mill, with whom she had three children. They were divorced in December 2006.
That's Nancy Lopez and Ray Knight. Been married for 25 years.
Two totally self absorbed people, no wonder it didn’t work.
Liked Chrissy, hated Norman after that drunken affair with President Clinton where Clinton was injured and they Norman and Clinton both had diffierent tales of what happened and the two of them made fools of themselves.
Gosh, made it a little over a year...isn’t that like 7 years in real people time?
They were already starting to look alike.
How sad for you - my husband and I have been married for 25 years and the buzz hasn’t quieted one bit!
Justaham...excuse me? Did you have anything to add here or were you just flirting with me?
That’s exactly what it means, Greg Norman=Norma Gregg.
DOn’t you remember that time Clinton went down and visited ole Greg, when we thought it was a cover to get his willie straightened out so it wouldn’t conform to the Paula Jones description? Is it all becoming clear to you now?
Chris Evert is smoking.
Good for you! I wish I’d had that experience. Unfortunately - I have not...not that I haven’t tried.
Perception...if you have morals and values.
I geuss she’s not a keeper.
Okay, now. He lost many tournaments because someone made some incredible shot - nothing he could do about that.
Is Joe DiMagio still married to they blond in Hollywood with the big boobs? ;~))
Same here, and we’ll be celebrating 34 years, a week from Sunday.
indeed... my perception is tainted because the reality is not matching up with my values.
LOL, good one!
Why even bother getting married if they couldn’t even commit to marriage longer than 15 months.
Congrats to you - that is wonderful!
I believe she left her husband for him.
Haven't you heard the absolute latest, she is supposedly messing around with some young married senator from Massachusetts!!!
No kidding? The black guy? I thought that Barbra Walters chick from ABC had dibs on him.
Man, you can't tell the players without a scorecard anymore.
I got to start getting People. My dentist doesn't have it anymore.
LOL, I give up, you win ;^)
He was and still is a very good golfer. Almost won the British Open in 2008 except Padraig played great.
Neither one of them are very pleasant people. She came off as a cold witch when follow him around after marriage. Maybe she was jealous of the limelight. He was a skirt chaser and always somewhat unpleasant. People said Faldo was cold and aloof but a lot of people like him now. They had great battles.
Hubby and I had #48 in June and we are looking forward to the big 5 0
Wonder who got the balls in the split?
I guess we could file this in the useless information category.....
if you told me at 17 that you could date a person and not get bored, I'd never believe you....
but people change, they grow....it keeps life intersting and alive...
hope you find that someone special....can't fathom going thru this life without a loved companion ....kindred spirt so to speak
Wow, that’s too bad, they seemed to be crazy about each other, she even caddied for him at the Par-3 Masters tourney, and he credited her with his inspiration for playing so great at the British Open last year.
Usually the first 6-12 months are blissful, too bad, they seemed like a good couple.
What happened is that Clinton tried to hit on Norman’s wife, I believe, and I think Norman hit him or knocked him over.
