And He’ll Always Treasure Those Goldie Moments

Compiled By Staff Writer Rick Bo

Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn may not be ready to jump through the hoops - of a marriage ceremony, that is - but at least she’s got a ring.

“Goldie has a nice ring that I got her,” Russell told the “Access Hollywood” TV show. “And in front of the kids we had a little moment.

“The thing that says ‘they got married’ is the guy gives the girl a ring,” said Russell, who has been with Hawn for 14 years and has a son by her. “So I gave Goldie this ring. That’s for society, that lets everybody know she has a guy.”

And in Vanity Fair, Russell says he’s her guy, period: “I may be the only guy who doesn’t have affairs and spend time with other women. I just don’t. I chose to turn (my attraction to women) on Goldie because that’s where I’m supposed to turn it. I’m finding over the years Goldie is where I choose to turn my attention.”

Loose talk

Actress Frances McDormand, on her spouse, director Joel Coen (in Total TV magazine): “For us, marriage is like a funny ‘50s sitcom. We play husband and wife. When I call him ‘husband,’ it cracks me up. He’s much more of a mate, as in the primordial monkey thing.”

So what’s she doing here? Three guesses

Tammy Wynette turns 55 today.

If you cross the street in front of her, look out!

Ashley Judd says she’s madly in love with pop crooner Michael Bolton, weird hair and all. “I’m so swept away that, as far as I’m concerned, the rest of the world doesn’t exist,” the actress tells Harper’s Bazaar. “I’m not really conscious of anybody but him.”

Well, at least she’s used to juvenile behavior

The Washington Post reports that boxer Mike Tyson has quietly wed his pediatrician girlfriend, Monica Turner, in a Muslim service at her Bethesda, Md., home. Turner, a faithful visitor throughout Tyson’s three-year prison stretch on a rape conviction, is the mother of his year-old daughter, Rayna, and is expecting again.

So funny, even his marriage is cracking up

“America’s Funniest Home Videos” host Bob Saget and his wife, Sherri, are calling it quits following 15 years of marriage and three daughters. Rumor has it Dana Delany is the “other woman,” although others say Saget’s first love is his career.

But he never, ever left the toilet seat up

So why did Anicka Rodman ditch her hubby, Dennis? In her new book, “Worse Than He Says He Is,” she claims the basketball bad boy fooled around with other women, made her get breast implants and four abortions, and gave her chlamydia and herpes.

Is he a gender-bender, or a gender-blender?

After Dennis Rodman accused Oprah Winfrey of “going through a Puritan phase” by canceling his appearance on her show last week, Winfrey replied that she dumped the sometime drag queen because his new book, “Walk on the Wild Side,” refers to sexual acts, toys and positions that are demeaning to women. “And he lists sexual items in the kitchen,” Winfrey added. “I did not feel that was appropriate.”
