I was watching "American Idol" last week when Ryan Seacrest mentioned his "girlfriend" who was standing in the wings.
The camera then caught a shot of the girlfriend, Julianne Hough, the very cute and talent-limited former dancer on "Dancing With the Stars" as well as a fledgling country singer and actor.
And I got to wondering, how in the world did Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough hook up? For that matter, how did George Clooney and Stacy Keibler or Brad and Angelina or Beyonce and Jay Z or Kim Kardashian and anyone, actually meet?
I mean they don’t go to the same church. They don’t go to bars and troll for dates. They don’t search online ads at dating sites.
Do they even arrange the hookup themselves? Or are there "people" who do it and tell them who they should be dating or be seen with or have a baby with? It’s almost impossible for me to imagine how this happens.
One thing, though. I’ll bet none of them met the way I met my wife, or you met your significant other or the way any normal people do.
