John Mellencamp is once again singing ‘The One Who Got Away” blues over his ill-fated relationship with Meg Ryan, her royal highness of rom-coms. Back in 2019, Meg ended their lengthy relationship by calling off their engagement and strolling off, saying, “Oh yeah…life goes on...”. It did for Meg, at least. Because in the years since their breakup, John must have had time to reflect on everything that went wrong between the two of them. And by “everything,” John admits that he was indeed the problem because he was a shitty boyfriend at the time.
What do all of my favorite romantic comedies of the ’80s and ’90s have in common? Meg Ryan! When Harry Met Sally, You’ve Got Mail, Sleepless in Seattle... hell, I even liked French Kiss. But it’s been awhile since Meg starred in a rom-com. There’s been some VOD shit, but her last proper one was Kate & Leopold (2001). But worry not, Megophiles. Fresh off from Julia Roberts’ return to rom-coms, 60-year-old Meg is making her triumphant return to the genre with What Happens Later, co-starring David Duchovny. Continue reading
Bad news, you guys. If, like me, you have been counting down the days to savor all of the grandiose, post-nuptial photos from the wedding of the year, I regret to inform you that you’ll just have to hang on a little longer. People is reporting that Dennis Quaid and his fiancee Laura Savoie have postponed their upcoming wedding ceremony amid fears of coronavirus.
On Sunday, Meg Ryan showed up to the Governors Awards with a big gold and diamond-studded ring on her left hand, but it wasn’t on her ring finger. Which it should be, considering the last time we all checked, she was engaged to John Mellencamp.
Meg made sure everyone got a good, clear shot of her ringless ring finger, and it was almost as though she was trying to tell everyone to go ahead and draw their own conclusions. Well, we don’t have to do that, because a source tattled to Us Weekly that Meg’s engagement is over.
There was a period of time in the 1990s where the Rom-Com Dons were Julia Roberts and Meg Ryan. Julia occasionally does a movie or an Amazon show, but Meg has been the face of a milk carton when it comes to Hollywood . She’s busy being engaged to John Mellencamp. Meg sat down with the New York Times to talk about her career, being pigeonholed into “America’s Sweetheart” roles, and her mutual breakup with Hollywood.
This is the way Meg Ryan announced she’s engaged to John Mellencamp. Earlier today, The Daily Mail posted pictures of Meg out and about in NYC with a set of wedding-looking rings on her ring finger.

Naturally, some people assumed that Meg and John got married. Meg cleared up that rumor by posting the little illustration above to her Instagram account with the caption: “ENGAGED.” Meg and John have been together off and on since 2011, with a Christie Brinkley break in there somewhere. This will be Meg’s second marriage (her first husband was Dennis Quaid), whereas this will be John’s third.
About that picture, I don’t look forward to sleeping tonight, because I know that thing is going to have a starring role in my nightmares. It looks like it was drawn with the chewed-down nub of a golf pencil on gas station restroom paper towel. What pictures were used for reference? Because I’m seeing less Meg and more Johnny Depp as Edward Scissorhands after a botched hand transplant surgery. And John looks like Thomas Markle with his mouth stitched shut. I’m sure that’s something that’s been doodled on Kensington Palace stationary hundreds of times.
