So the main question here is: Which celebrities would you like to be fake-engaged to? I’ve got three choices in mind (and I’m not going completely A-list here, because I have a feeling the George Clooneys of the world have better things to do)…
1) David Cook. Since my mother is a Cougar 4 Cook, I would love to see how she’d handle seeing the American Idol champ go from someone who “acts like a man” to someone who acts like a douchewaffle. I’m telling you, it would be the time of my life.
2) James Franco. Because, judging by his guest appearance on General Hospital, this guy can play crazy. And for those of you who might claim he’s too A-list to dabble in reality show fare, well, the grad student could just turn the whole experience into his thesis.
3) Jesse Spencer. The point of My Parents is winning money. And the longer you can convince your parents that you’re marrying this obnoxious celeb, the more green you score. Hence my Jesse Spencer strategy — Since the House star bears an uncanny resemblance to my own, real-life boyfriend (I’m a lucky gal), I could likely keep the farce going for days without even telling them it’s Dr. Chase.
Your turn, PopWatchers. Which celebrities would you like to be your fake fiancés?
