Ok, I didn't see if there was a thread for this, so, we can post anything about Lleyton and Bec Cartwright here :) It's pretty obvious they are an item now, it has been plastered all over the magazines here in Australia.

Must admit...they make a nice couple. But i still can't believe Lley and Kim are over for good...and that Becca and Beau have split, they were so good together!! Good luck to Lley and Becca though, hope they're v happy together.

Apparently, Kim's also got a new BF.
If someone would have predicted this at the end of 2003, he/she would have been sent to see a shrink.

I still liked it better when Kim was together with Lleyton.

Well, me too Hagar, but if they weren't happy together, maybe this is the best way.

We can't expect them to stay together just because we want them to be, can we???

I hope they both will be very happy, with there *new* partner!

This is making me sad...I can't believe Lleyton will pose pics with the new girl, Kim must be feeling a bit hurt with this...Don't get me wrong, I wish for them to be happy and dating others again but isn't this a bit too soon to be out in the public eye?

Their break-up is still SO SURREAL for me. To see pics of him with a new woman, already--I mean wow, that hurts even me. It's such a bizarre sight. But I am still big big fans of the both of them, and Lleyki forever

It must hurt Kim if she has seen these photos, I'm guessing she wouldn't even look at them though. And if she is seen with her new 'partner' Lleyton would find it a bit strange too. They were together for such a long time, its gotta be weird to see your ex with other people, and it must be 100 times worse when you're in the public eye with everyone speculating and talking about you. If they feel ready to move on, good luck to them. I hope this isn't just a rebound relationship though or everyone involved will eventually get hurt.

Totally agree. If they are really in love with their new partner, I am happy for each of them. In the opposite ... :sad:

Why would Kim be hurt by it? She's the one who put paid to the relationship. Clearly Lleyton wasn't what she wanted and I can't see her being hurt becuase he's with someone else. When I've been the one to break up with a guy, it hasn't hurt me to see him with someone new.

Star has a good point. Let me be serious here for a few moments. If (and I repeat, if) Kim had been reluctant to marry, or even to continue her relationship with, Lleyton because of what she viewed as the excessive involvement of his parents, she might well still have many positive feelings toward him personally and be relieved that he is getting on with his life and has found a new girlfriend.

Did you know that Kim has a new boyfriend?,he is a Belgium boy by the name of Luc Opdelocht he is 25years old 1.92 metres tall and is an Electrician.He also models underwear(mens I hope for her sake.)Ha! ;) :wavey: bye Billhugh.

I agree with Star that Kim might not be upset since she was the one that ended the relationship, but I know that if it was me it would still hurt no matter who ended it. You're used to that person being with you for the past 4 years, and now they're with someone else - it's gotta be weird, at least for a while. Especially when the pictures are splashed all over the press. I feel bad for both of them that their private lives are being dragged through the press...guess thats the downside of being famous.

You're absolutely right, star! After all they also have been friends for over 5 years, I don't think Lleyton would be friends with her for such a long time, if she wasn't worth it.

@ Nomad: I don't mind seeing Lleyton & Bec pics (actually I'm very curious,
so I really don't mind at all ;) )
=> I just find it very strange that I think there haven't been so
much pics of him & Kim (in those almost 5 years) were they
pose together as there are already from him & Bec.
But again, I don't mind seeing them!

Lleyton likes to date women who look like him. Bec looks more like Lleyts than Kim ever did down to the shape and length of her face, bone structure and dimpled chin. :o
I think our man must be in love with his own reflection. Well, whatever makes you happy Lleyton.

Lleyton's much cuter than Bec though. His cheekbones are :hearts: and Bec has no chin! But to each her own. She hooked a real catch (not a bad-lookin' guy with a great career and loads of cash). I wonder if Lleyton's really into her or will play the field for a while.

Lisbeth
12-31-2004, 05:39 AM
I actually think Bec seems very nice - she always seems to be involved in charity and community things (carols in the domain, for example) and I don't recall any dodgy press about her. It's just that soapie starlets' fame - and ulitmately careers - depend on publicity and let's face it, this is a golden opportunity. It doesn't bother me at all but I do think it's Bec driving the publicity and not Lleyton (who will be famous forever now in Aus and doesn't need a New Idea cover to cement it ;) !)

well i liked her a lot before i saw her with lleyton so i'm not changing my mind!!!
since i saw her on home and away i've always looked at her as a perfect girl and i think looked from a girl's point of view taht she a very pretty girl and i 've always wanted to look more like her...and she always has these great outfits when u c her!! don't u think?
so as log as she treats lleyton like he should be treated and doesn't distract him from his tennis it's fine by me! u go boy(not that he was waiting for my approval! but hey..u never know... ;) but can i have beau brady than???he's so goodlooking...:lick:

Lifestyles of the rich and famous: : Palm Beach is the place to be for celebrities this summer.

It's celebrity season
By SHARRI MARKSON
January 2, 2005
SYDNEY'S smart set politely poured into Palm Beach last week, setting the northern beaches abuzz with sightings of local and international celebrities.


Six Feet Under star Rachel Griffiths, tennis ace Lleyton Hewitt and singer Guy Sebastian were among those enjoying the sun, salt and scenery at "Palmie".

Sebastian is the newest ratepayer in Sydney's heavenly holiday spot, having spent a rumoured $1.1 million on a house overlooking Sandy Beach last month.

The Australian Id winner turned heads wherever he went last week, zipping around the peninsula in his yellow sports car.

Wimbledon champ Lleyton Hewitt and his girlfriend, Home & Away star Bec Cartwright, were spotted at a Palm Beach park on Friday before heading to the beach.

Sightings of Nicole Kidman proved unfounded; her agent confirmed she was still in LA after wrapping up Bewitched.

But Kidman's sister, Antonia, spent time with her tots on Palm Beach's sand before heading back to Sydney for the New Year's Eve fireworks display.

Actor Jason Smith, who plays Robbie Hunter in Home & Away, munched on fish and chips.

"I've come up here for a swim while I've got time off from filming," he said.

Iva Davies, lead singer of Icehouse, caught a few waves near his family home on the northern beaches.

Rachel Griffiths spent time at her cottage, as did part-time model Chantal Wannenburg.

She's a very chilly actress in my opinion. I've seen her where she is very good, but still there is this distance..... more like one is admiring her performance instead of being drawn in and captured.

I'm not that fond of either her or her ex-husband.

Socket

I really liked her performance in The Others and in that film she did about the overly ambitious woman who wanted to be a reporter (I think it's called To Die For?). Other than that . . .

Wow, you really hit the nail on the head! That is exactly what I feel when I watch Nicole Kidman. She's chilly and distant, especially in her last movie, Birth. There's that distance, a wall between the actor and the audience. It's a stark difference to say Julia Roberts who really draws me in.

She surprised me in The Others. That performance really drew me in and she was great in that dark comedy To Die For. And I had fun with Moulin Rouge, but I still felt that distance in her performance.

But I can't stand Nicole Kidman, I just don't enjoy anything she does really :confused: She better not win Aussie of the Year (I think she's the favourite) (Need a vomiting smilie there)

I don't post here very often, so it seems like this is a dead issue, to contemplate on the relations between Kim and Lleyton

and what I am about to say is really, unimportant anyway, so no one has to read it, it's just me thinking out loud about Lleyton and Bec

anyway, I don't think Lleyton and Bec Cartwright will last very long. It doesn't matter how long they last, I know, but I just feel like saying that. I don't think they'll last very long.

When you have the kind of relationship Kim and Lleyton had, a long, intense, blissful relationship, and then one day, it's gone-- you're desperate and vulnerable to find something to fill that void in your heart. I think Bec Cartwright is beautiful; I think she is gorgeous. But for Lleyton to get with her so soon is a drastic action. And this goes the same for Kim if she really has a new boyfriend.

when you break-up with someone who was literally the other half of yourself--the most important person in your life for so long, there's a big hole in your life. It's like losing a dog that was always there to pet and play with. So you buy a new dog. It's strange when all of a sudden, something is gone. and when people immediately hook-on to something new, as sincere and genuine as that new relationship is, it's still a sign of vulnerability and desperation to fill the emptiness and to cover the hole

And, the same goes for Bec, who only just spilt up with Beau Brady after 4 years. Wheter they both admit it or not, I'm sure they are both lonely people having split with their long term partners. Whether it is a short or long term solution only time will tell.

The frosted hair pics of Beau are gross. Beau's cuter than Lleyton though. He's real good-looking in reality with his natural dark hair color.

I don't think B-list traded up in looks with Lleyton (I think Lleyton's looks good now, but Beau's still cuter), but she certainly traded up in terms of Lleyton's deep pockets $$$$ and worldwide fame. And Lleyton's so talented. :worship:

i try not to compare tennisplayers with actors coz the diffrence is actorplayers are mostly chosen for their looks and how they appeare but tennisplayers, cute or not, normally they are their to play tennis! so i just think that it's a blessing in the sky that lleyton is a damn good tennis player and that he turned out to be a damn goodlooking guy ;)

Yeah, I'm always gonna be jealous of any girl he's with... She's pretty, I wouldn't say beautiful, but pretty. I don't think her looks will last though, she's really young, but that chin is going to be a problem for her later on.... good thing there's plastic surgery for the rich & famous. Sorry to be so catty!

In these latest pics she looks very ordinary and average.
For an actor, her looks are truly B-list.
Other photos of her are more flattering, when she has makeup, her hair done, and photo retouching like on her album cover. But other soapie actors turned pop singers blow Bec's face out of the water...Kylie Minogue, Delta Goodrem and even that girl Tammin Sursok.

Why B-list, Lleyton? Maybe it's a rite of passage that Aussie tennis players date a soapie/pop singer: Delta-Flip, Bec-Lleyton. :p Todd Reid should carry on the tradition. But I'm afraid he's not famous enough for the soapie girls to want to date him. :devil:

Here's the gossip, I mean article, from tennisreporters.net. The error in the first line is theirs, not mine!


Alexis Barbara, top, has attracted Lleyton Hewitt's attention and Bec Cartwright, bottom, is (high) schooling Mark Philippoussis.

While many of the shutterbugs have focused on clicking away at Mark Philippoussis' new squeeze, Miami teen model Alexis Barbara, Lleyton Hewitt has been publicly dating Aussie actress Bec Cartwright. Going out in public in high profile fashion is completely out of character for Hewitt and there are those in the Kim Clijsters' camp who must think that he's partially acting out to get back at the woman who snubbed him.

Hewitt showed up at the Virgin Atlantic launch party with soap opera star Cartwright over the holidays and also did a photo shoot with her before they went on a cruise on the Sydney Harbor - almost a year to the date (same boat?) when he proposed to now ex-fiancée Kimmy on the harbor.

The 21-year-old-Cartwright just broke up with fellow actor Beau Brady, who starred with her in the Aussie show "Home and Away."

"It is not about him as a tennis player. It is about him as a person," Stephen Harmon, Cartwright's manager, told the Aussie media. Sounds like this is a publicist's "put a good face on it" match between two scorned lovers. The shelf life of this relationship between a child TV star and a child tennis star remains to be seen. The last big relationship between two such type of "stars" – Andre Agassi and Brooke Shields – ended in divorce. Agassi got re-married to a tennis player, Steffi Graf.

FYI for US fans: Cartwright first starred on TV in the commercial "My Little Pony" when she was five, She also sings and dances. Her biggest song is "All Seats Taken."

Philippoussis' new squeeze, Barbara, is only 17-years-old and is a student at Miami's Gulliver Prep. She's in the new "Eiffel on Campus" calendar, the only high schooler of the 12. When's the last time that the Scud (Anna Kournikova, Tara Reid) dated a low-profile woman?

I saw the pics of B-list Bec with her arm around Pauline Hanson, the founder of the One Nation party in Australia. WTF? I know Pauline Hanson was
runner-up to Bec in Dancing with the Stars, but still. Is B-list anti-Asian/anti-immigrant/anti-Aborigine too? Is racism and hate systematically accepted in Australia? I read that Ms. Hanson was a crowd favorite with home viewers of Dancing with the Stars. If that's true, it seems that many Aussies are accepting of someone even if they spew racist sentiments. Perhaps Aussies appreciate Ms. Hanson's dancing skills and don't mind letting her racist comments slide OR many Aussies agree with her hate speech? I know the photo ops are like catnip for Bec, but where does she draw the line? Unless she agress politically with Ms. Hanson.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Profile: Pauline Hanson


Hanson is seen as a right-wing maverick
Pauline Hanson has cut a controversial figure ever since she founded the anti-immigration One Nation Party.
Depending on your point of view, she could go down in history as either inspirational battler for the rights of the ordinary Australian, or a symbol of the worst in reactionary, white Australian conservatism.

At the height of her influence in the late 1990s, this red-haired, hard-edged, twice-divorced mother of four shook the political establishment, provoked outrage, and inspired a legion of satirists.

Already regarded as a loose cannon, in the 1996 federal elections she stood as an official Liberal candidate in the safe Labor seat of Oxley in Queensland.

Just over two weeks before the election date, the Liberal Party disowned her over comments on race and immigration.

Mrs Hanson contested the seat as an independent and sensationally won.

But that victory was a minor tremor compared to the earthquake triggered by her maiden speech to the Federal Parliament later that year.

Australia, she said, was in danger of being swamped by Asians.

She denounced the inequality of giving welfare money to Aborigines that was not available to other Australians.
Bureaucrats, fat cats, do-gooders, big business, foreign investors and the United Nations received a tongue-lashing, too.

Left-wing Labor and conservative Liberal politicians united in their condemnation, Church leaders and newspaper editorials criticised her - but Pauline Hanson apparently tapped a deep dissatisfaction in the country with the two main parties and the established order.


Her tough anti-immigration stance caused controversy

She appealed across party lines to working class white males, who saw in this former fish-and-chip-shop owner somebody who was like themselves.

Opponents picked apart naive policies on issues such as taxation, and the media delighted in "Hansonisms".

One famous televised exchange in October 1996 saw respected interviewer Tracey Curio ask Mrs Hanson whether she was xenophobic.

Her startled reply, "Please explain!" entered the national lexicon.

She was a nervous and inarticulate performer in front of the cameras.

Yet, while in favour, she was able to depict her detractors as intellectual snobs, a self-interested elite. The more she was ridiculed, the more her popularity grew.

With the launch of her One Nation Party in 1997, Pauline Hanson took her policies to voters across the country.

In Queensland's state elections the following year, the party won 11 out of 78 seats with 23% of the vote.

Decline

But in the 1998 federal elections, Pauline Hanson was rejected by voters and saw her national profile and popularity decline.

In the November election, Hanson and her party failed to win a single seat.

In the months beforehand, Prime Minister John Howard had moved his party sharply to the right, introducing a controversial but popular policy of turning away boatloads of asylum seekers before they could reach Australia's shores.

Mrs Hanson complained that she had lost because the Howard Government had stolen her policies.

But by then she had another battle to face - she was being investigated for fraud over allegedly obtaining illegal government funds to set up One Nation, tarnishing her image as an honest, hard-working woman of the people.

In January 2002, she announced her retirement from politics to concentrate on fighting the allegations.

In August 2003 she was found guilty of illegally using the names of 500 members of a support group to register One Nation as a political party, as well as fraudulently obtaining almost A$500,000 (US$325,000) in electoral funds.

She was jailed for three years, serving 11 weeks of that term before an appeal court quashed her conviction in November 2003 and ordered her released.

Analysts say One Nation is largely responsible for forcing the issue of race to the forefront of Australian politics, but it has so far failed to persuade Australians it is worthy of more than a protest vote against the established parties.

But Pauline Hanson still manages to excite deep passions among her supporters.

First up, I never saw Dancing with the Stars but I very much doubt that PH was popular considering she is generally loathed. No-one I know would admit to liking her, that's for sure. Suggesting Australians accept her views is like saying all Americans must be racist because that KKK Duke guy got preselected (? sorry I'm not up on American electoral terminology, I just remember the Amnesty International campaign :lol: ) to run for governor of wherever it was. One Nation won ONE federal seat at ONE election and I think a few seats in one state (Qld) ONCE. No way did they ever have government of even a local council. It has now died out. Basically it captured the imagination of the 5%-10% of the population that is extremist anyone, as every country has.

No idea what's with Bec, probably just being nice, or maybe she wasn't even old enough to remember One Nation's policies.

Also, even though I campaigned against PH at the time, I actually think she's more stupid than evil. When she was in jail she apparently made friends with many aboriginal women who liked her, but she doesn't "get" that treating everyone equally leads to inequality.

Not everywhere. Sometimes it depends on how much older the other person is. For instance here if a 28 year old man had sex with a 17 year old girl, it's a felony, but if it's an 18 year old, it's not a crime at all.

Difficult to get the girls to testify though. ;)

But... if there's a pregnancy..........

Age of consent here is 14! Intercourse with a 13 year old is ****. Then after that it's a graduated thing that is dependent on the age of the people involved and the activity engaged in. Sexual fondling can be a crime depending on the age and the age difference. It's a complicated thing. I imagine it just about explodes the brain of the average policeman. :lol:

I don't see Lleyton liking someone with extreme views like that. He's probably just a run of the mill guy who's got his mates and the people he likes without regard to ethnicity while still having some of those predjudices that are hold overs from the society at large. Lleyton's had some broadening experiences most guys his age haven't had. :)

Bec was by far the best on the show, there were quite a few others who were very good as well, but by the end the judges said Bec and Michael were getting close to pro standard, considering the time constraints. Pauline was just a running joke. Every week when she got through, people were horrifired and she seemed to think she endeared herself to people by asking the judges to "please explain" but she seemed to have a bit of a cult following. To top it all off, she imitated Sandy from Grease in the final dance. My eyes burnt! Despite small pockets of people, she is NOT popular in Australia. :)

Why would Kim be hurt by it? She's the one who put paid to the relationship. Clearly Lleyton wasn't what she wanted and I can't see her being hurt becuase he's with someone else. When I've been the one to break up with a guy, it hasn't hurt me to see him with someone new.


are you saying that if you broke up with your boyfriend (who you've been with for such a long time) and you suddenly see his picture with another girl after what 3 months since you broke up, you wouldn't feel a thing?
and who knows if Kim was the one who broke up with him? Didn't they say it's a mutual decision...I just feel that it has to hurt the first time you see your ex with someone else....I'm sure she wishes Lleyton all the best but she will feel those stuffs and I'm sure the same way for Lleyton...

I didn't say Kim wouldn't feel a thing. I just said she wouldn't be hurt by it.

The talk from Kim's camp is that she wasn't happy and hadn't been happy for a long time, and realized that if she didn't do something she was going to wind up being married. The talk from Lleyton's camp is that he was devastated and gutted. This doesn't sound mutual to me.

Evidently, I wasn't as emotionally involved in this relationship as some others were. They were adorable together, but I only watched them from a distance. If they weren't happy together no matter how it happened, it's ok with me.

The hard truth is that when people break up they start dating other people. Kim's dating and Lleyton's dating. Sure there are egos and feelings involved, but if Lleyton remained devoted to Kim after the break up it would be weird and unhealthy. Unrequited love is only romantic in books. In real life, it's just creepy.

I'm sure it must feel weird for Kim or Lleyton to see each other with different people, but it's over now :p . They both have other people in their lives and I think they are both very happy right now, which is all that matters :) ! Kim has a new boyfriend and Lleyton has Bec. They moved on and that's the important thing :angel: .

The talk from Kim's camp is that she wasn't happy and hadn't been happy for a long time, and realized that if she didn't do something she was going to wind up being married. The talk from Lleyton's camp is that he was devastated and gutted. This doesn't sound mutual to me.
You're right but I am not sure what to believe from the media from both sides... :confused:

Evidently, I wasn't as emotionally involved in this relationship as some others were. They were adorable together, but I only watched them from a distance. If they weren't happy together no matter how it happened, it's ok with me.
Actually all of us were watching them from outside, none of us were in their lives really! so what is important is that the decision they (or one of them made) was the one that was gonna make them happy in the longer term. :angel: To come back to the break up reasons, we were not in their lives either to see what and why things went wrong. ;) So I find it difficult to make a judgment (or make my mind up to be more accurate) on why they broke up from what the tvs and media showed from their relationship and from what this same media said on the break up...

The hard truth is that when people break up they start dating other people. Kim's dating and Lleyton's dating. Sure there are egos and feelings involved, but if Lleyton remained devoted to Kim after the break up it would be weird and unhealthy.
:worship: I couldn't agree more Christina... And same for Kim, it's great they move on with their lives...

In real life, it's just creepy.

I agree with you. Usually, after a long term relationship break up, the two usually date others people to try to forget about their previous relationship, but sometimes, it's just hard to forget about it after many things that both have been through together. I'd do the same thing to try to forget, but since I'm a very emotional person, I will a while to forget, or maybe not.

Something to remember is that the person ending the relationship is always going to be in a position of strength and have the advantage, as opposed to the partner who was 'let go' (I just hate using the word dumped in this situation). Kim very likely was able to process her feelings and adjust to the end of her relationship before she officially ended it, LLeyton on the other hand probably did not have that chance. I wouldn't worry one bit about Kim being hurt by Lleyton having a new girlfriend, especially since she has moved on too. Who knows, privately, she may just be slagging her off like a lot of people do when their ex hooks up with a new partner :devil:

hey everyone...didn't mean to cause any trouble here...it's just that i know how it feels to see someone you've been with for a long time and as much as i say that it's fine and i've moved on...the first time you see that person with someone else, you feel that "thing" that gently hits your heart and suddenly you feel "wow, this is reality"...and you they might be broken up but i'm sure they still care for each other (love does not leave one's heart in the span of 2 months) you know what i'm saying...that's why i said that...but they're young and they'll move on...sooner or later...i just hope that this is not a rebound thing for them...coz it's also harder to the new people in their lives...

anyway...thanks for not beating me to a pulp... ;)

Why? I'm seriously asking, I'm not trying to be rude or annoying. What do you find attractive about her?

As for me *disclaimer - I think she's a reasonably nice human being overall, this is just about her looks*, I think she's one of the ugliest WTA players I've ever seen. She's got huge chunky legs, no waist, pretty much flat chested, horrible complexion, coarse frizzy hair, need I go on?

star
01-26-2005, 12:33 AM
No.

You obviously have a different opinion. She's got beautifully muscled legs that are sleek and toned. If you had ever seen her in person you might gasp at how lovely the skin and muscles on her legs are. She's not got a extremely slender waist, but she's not thick around the middle either. She's got a very nice bust that is neither flat or overly endowed. Just the kind of bust that many women might want to have, imo. She's breaks out ocassionally, but overall her skin is quite nice. I think tennis players in general have a problem with break outs because of the sweating on the court. She's got lovely curly hair that I would die for. It's silky and thick and abundant.

She also has gorgeous lips, beautiful eyes and a smile that could rival a klieg light.

No, she's not Claudia Schiffer, but no tennis player is. She's not movie star gorgeous, but she is girl next door gorgeous. :) Kim is a very attractive girl and seems to be always ready to smile and laugh. That means a lot too.

Kim's great.

I'd rather have someone with a pleasant personality than a looker too, but that wasn't my question. I was genuinely curious as to what people saw in her physically that made them rate her as prettier than Bec or even pretty at all.

I have seen her in person, actually, and I still found her almost physically repellant. It's true that her legs are muscled but they are huge and I still don't think she has a waist or breasts. As for her complexion, I guess she doesn't always have those spots these days, but it's never radiant or glowing. I like curly hair usually but I find Kim's never looks curly so much as frizzy which isn't so good. I guess she does have nice eyes but they don't show up because of her light eyelashes and eyebrows so they don't do much for me. I honestly don't think any less of her as a person for her looks (although I'm not a huge fan of her personality as so many seem to be) but I find it odd that so many of you seem to like her looks.

I think she has a really nice, toned body, wonderful smile, beautiful eyes, very pretty curly hair and a near-perfect sized bust...obviously we're not going to agree but hey, each to their own :)

And as Marly was saying, what I admire most is her attitude and personality and I think that her inner-beauty really shines through making her a radiant, glorious looking person :hearts:

As for my opinion, I pretty much agree with what everybody has said. I also think Kim has that kind of personality that just radiates into their looks. For me, people tend to get better looking ( or worse, as the case may be ) as I get to know them. When you like a person, their qualities tend to stick out more but when you don't like a person, their flaws become quite apparent. And don't worry, it's fine that you don't like Kim, everybody is entitled to their opinion :)

Wow, such passion and emotion for someone you dislike (physically repellent, huh? Did you recoil in horror when you saw her in person?). You have really spent a lot (and I mean a lot) of time analyzing every little nuance about Kim. She really has buried herself deep into your consciousness. Strangely enough, when I don't like a player particularly much I tend to :yawn: and then not spend any energy on them. I just dismiss them and am a happier and more contented person for it.

Moving on, I believe that beauty is a very subjective thing. I personally find Kim to be a pretty young woman (that's right, I said pretty). I agree with the view that a person's personality radiates through and can make a person pysically attractive and in Kim's case it is definately the case (for me). Not being a fan of Kim I imagine you would not spend much time checking out Kim's forum or her website, or for that matter searching the web for any bit of Kim info/photos that you can find - the stuff that a fan would do. If you did you would find plenty of evidence of Kim looking quite stunning when she's dressed up.

There is no reason to question why Kim fans find her attractive, the fact that they do means she is. I wouldn't question Steffi Graf or Justine Henin Hardenne and fans why they find them attractive. I might not agree but I would never criticize them for believing it.

Just in case I haven't professed my obsessive devotion to Kim, in response to your detailed break down of Kim's pysical failings, I would kill for legs like hers. She may have strong thighs but she has slender and well shaped calves and to me that is attractive. Flat chested? Compared to Pamela Anderson maybe, compared to JHH and Maria Sharapova, I think not. I would describe Kim's body type as being voluptuous and athletic. I thought guys generally prefer her body type to the rail thin model type!

So, to answer your question as to why some people say they think Kim is prettier than Bec - beauty is in the eye of the beholder and is a subjective thing. That's it, pure and simple. And it doesn't need to be justified, ever.

It doesn't need to be justified, no, but most people have reasons for finding someone attractive and I was curious to know what the reasons were for finding Kim so as I really don't see it. Um, actually, I haven't spent very much time analysing Kim at all. I flicked through this thread thought "what?! people actually think Kim is pretty?!", wrote a couple of posts that took me, maybe 5 minutes and probably a bit less. To be honest, I only watch Kim's matches when she plays another player that I like but that happens relatively frequently because she's a top player who goes deep into draws.

Looking at the responses, it seems that it's mostly personality that people are drawn to, if I'm interpreting this correctly? Personality does make people more attractive and so the reason I can't see Kim's supposed attractiveness is probably that I don't like her personality that much. I don't think she's a nasty, horrible, mean bitch either, I'm just fairly indifferent to her on a personal level.

IMO Kim is attractive. It's not just her personality. I love her big blue eyes and bright glowing smile. Here's a Real Player clip of her at last year's Paris tournament. When the interviewer asked her about Lleyton acting as her sparring partner she had this sunny glow and cute smile and giggle. http://www.opengazdefrance.com/webtv/video_120204.shtml

Courtside love boosts tired Hewitt
By Leo Schlink
January 30, 2005

AUSTRALIAN Open contender Lleyton Hewitt yesterday enjoyed a day of rest in Melbourne with his soap-star girlfriend to ready himself for tonight's historic final.

Battling fatigue and a hip-flexor injury, the world No.3 slept in at his central Melbourne hotel before taking a stroll with Home And Away star Bec Cartwright.

Cartwright has been a courtside regular at Rod Laver Arena for the past fortnight, sitting with Hewitt's family and coach. "Like the rest of Australia, I was extremely proud when Lleyton won against Andy Roddick," she said .

"He has worked so hard and deserves to be in the Australian Open final. I'm really looking forward to it.

"I'll be cheering him on, every step of the way."

Friends said Hewitt had even watched an episode of Home And Away in his change room before Friday night's semi-final, which saw him travel further in a home-grown Grand Slam than any Australian in the past 29 years.

The pair's public romance - dining on Mexican food at Fiesta restaurant on Wednesday and Cartwright's appearances at training - has drawn almost as much attention as Hewitt's on-court performances.

Hewitt's coaches ordered the 23-year-old to rest after his four-set win over Roddick, the world number two, on Friday night.

Hewitt yesterday confirmed that - win or lose tonight - he would not defend his Rotterdam title in a fortnight, preferring to rest at home before resuming for the Davis Cup round in Sydney from March 4 to 6.

"I'm taking a month off after this next match," he said. "I've known that the whole time."

"I'm taking a month off after this next match," he said. "I've known that the whole time."

Well we knew from the beginning that he wasn't going to Rotterdam...he was supposed to get married in Adelaide.

But I could see him skipping Indian Wells because it starts on March 7 and that's a long flight from the Davis Cup tie in Sydney unless the tournament directors give him a late start at IW. Next tournament after is Key Biscayne/Miami so I think he'll just come back then.

Jess
01-29-2005, 04:47 PM
He was never going to play Rotterdam. He only played it last year because he was living half the time in Belgium. This year his family and girlfriend are all in Australia. Of course he's going to hang around there and celebrate.
He'll probably show up at Indian Wells - top players don't normally start until about the Thursday after it's scheduled as it's a two week tournament.

I think he'll play IW. :D He likes the tournament, and the flight from Sydney to California isn't as bad as going from Aus to Europe, or so I would imagine.

So it starts later. Then he could make it. It was one of his favorite tournaments. He's always said he liked playing the American hardcourt season and at the resorts.

At IW last year I think he lost to...Juan Ignacio Chela :p

LLeyton opens his heart to Bec

EVERYONE thought making the Australian Open final was going to be the biggest moment in Lleyton Hewitt's year.


But within hours of losing to Russian Marat Safin, the world No. 2 had reason to pop open the champagne and celebrate another major moment.

Following a seven-week whirlwind romance with Home and Away actress Bec Cartwright, he got down on bended knee in his Melbourne hotel room on Sunday night and asked for the 21-year-old's hand in marriage.


It is thought Cartwright was not 100 per cent unaware Hewitt would propose, but perhaps with not such extravagance ?a $200,000 diamond ring from exclusive jeweller Tiffany & Co.


The couple then headed to Hewitt's private Australian Open final party to celebrate their engagement with "overjoyed" family and friends.


The proposal comes less than two months after they were first spotted together ?both having just ended long- term relationships.


Hewitt was engaged to Belgian tennis player Kim Clijsters before she dumped him last October, while Cartwright split with actor boyfriend Beau Brady late last year.


A statement released by the pair yesterday said they had "rekindled their relationship" late last year after meeting at a Starlight Foundation charity tennis day five years ago.


"The couple were instantly committed to each other and their close connection has been well documented," the statement said.


Over the past fortnight, Cartwright has been courtside at most of Hewitt's Australian Open matches and was among those thanked by the tennis star after Sunday night's final.


Hewitt had reportedly hoped to propose after winning the title, which he eventually lost to Safin 1-6 6-3 6-4 6-4.


Early yesterday, a tight-lipped Cartwright flew back to Sydney to fulfil shooting commitments on Home & Away.


Appearing briefly outside her trailer, she seemed surprised by the extra media attention.


When asked how she was feeling less than 12 hours after the proposal, her answer was simple.


"Oh, it's awesome. I'm really happy," she smiled.


After two hours in her make-up trailer, Cartwright later emerged to tell waiting media: "I'm just back at work like any other day, it's just the same."


Although her mother Michele was with her yesterday, there was no sign of her four carat engagement ring, a fact Cartwright was quick to clarify.


"I'm Hayley right now," she said referring to the Home & Away character she has played for the past six years.


But for many of her co-stars, including on-screen foster mother Lynne McGranger, the intense media interest on the set was somewhat unusual.


"I was just saying to someone that it feels like Brad [Pitt] and Jen [Aniston] ?it's a little crazy, but she's a level-headed girl . . . she's 21, and she's a very mature 21," McGranger said.


Cartwright's 84-year-old grandfather, Alan Dunstone, said the extended family was very happy about the engagement.


He told The Daily Telegraph Cartwright called her mother immediately after the proposal.


He confirmed that the first couple met when Hewitt requested Cartwright be his partner for the charity tennis match.


"They kept up correspondence since then and have been friends for a long time," he said.


"I think it's good. He's a nice young fellow and I think they make a good couple."

Love on rebound is 'risky'
Liam Houlihan
01feb05

DEMANDING careers and time spent apart could put extra pressure on Lleyton Hewitt and Bec Cartwright, a relationship expert said yesterday.
But Anne Hollands, from Relationships Australia, said the fact Lleyton and Bec were both on the rebound when they met would not determine whether their relationship lasted.
"Partnering on the rebound when you haven't addressed issues that arose in the last relationship can be risky," she said. "But sometimes meeting a new person is rejuvenating and helps recovery.

"There isn't any magic amount of time between relationships. Some people get over past loves much earlier or later than others."

Robyn Parker, of the Australian Institute of Family Studies, said an important factor was how they settled their tensions: "How well they manage conflict – do they fight fairly? Do they let things simmer and then explode? Is there a level of maturity there?"

Relationship breakdown expert Dr Jan Stewart said several factors might work against the couple.

"They're young, they're on the rebound, it's a short courtship and they're both in the spotlight," the Deakin University academic said.

"I hope they prove me wrong and last the distance but I don't think they will."

The average age to marry in Australia is 31 for men and 29 for women.

Quick engagements are common in the world of celebrity couples.

Bec Cartwright and Lleyton Hewitt have been together for seven weeks. But Britney Spears and childhood chum Jason Alexander partied for just seven days before they married in a drunken moment in a Las Vegas "quickie" chapel in January last year.

The union was annulled 55 hours later. In April, Spears started dating back-up dancer Kevin Federline and they married in August.

Jennifer Lopez married Marc Anthony in June last year just nine months after she split up with Ben Affleck.

Bec gets behind Lleyton
He may have come off the court as the bridesmaid in his first Australian Open final, but Lleyton Hewitt came away with a bigger prize after an off-court win on Sunday night made him a groom in waiting.

After losing to Russian Marat Safin (a two-time Australian Open bridesmaid himself), Hewitt proposed to girlfriend Bec Cartwright at Melbourne Park after the match.

Both Hewitt's agent and Channel Seven confirmed that the 23-year-old runner-up proposed to his soap star girlfriend - whom he started dating six weeks ago - by presenting her with a "big diamond" after losing the final at Melbourne Park.

Staff at Collins Street jewellers Tiffany & Co refused to comment on reports that Hewitt had spent more than $200,000 on an engagement ring for Cartwright. Hewitt apparently surprised Cartwright, 21, by getting down on one knee to pop the question, before heading to a private party to celebrate the end of the competition with his entourage.

"Bec proudly revealed the ring presented to her by Lleyton earlier this evening to overjoyed family and friends at the post tennis final celebrations," read a statement, released after the match, from Stephen Harmon of Encompass Management and Justine Cohen from Octagon.

AdvertisementHewitt and Cartwright met five years ago at a Starlight Foundation charity tennis day and rekindled their relationship late last year, their agents said.

The engagement comes less than four months after Hewitt's break-up with former world No. 1 women's tennis player Kim Clijsters. Hewitt and the Belgian tennis star had been together four years and were to marry in February.

It is about two months since Cartwright announced her separation from fellow Home and Away star Beau Brady.

Cartwright was back on the set of Home and Away in Sydney yesterday after avoiding the media at Melbourne and Sydney airports. Cartwright emerged from the set, but refused to be drawn on the engagement announcement.

"Wow," Cartwright said when approached by media on the set of the the soap at Palm Beach, on Sydney's northern beaches. "It's awesome. I'm really happy. I'm just back at work like any other day; it's just the same," she said. "I've got to go do my thing and be Hayley for a couple more hours."

There was no ring on Cartwright's finger but, as she explained: "I'm Hayley right now." Cartwright's mother Michele was on set with her daughter. "I'm very excited," she told reporters.

While Cartwright was working, Hewitt is believed to have taken in a spot of golf in Melbourne with Greg Norman.



It's believed Cartwright and Hewitt are negotiating with a magazine for an interview about the engagement.

Yeah, I'm up at 2:00 am yesterday to see the final and I stayed offline until getting to work this morning. Damn strange timing for a proposal. I guess he was counting on winning it and maybe making it in front of everybody like someone else mentioned.

I wish them the best. I have to say, since he announced her as his girlfriend a few weeks ago, I am not surprised this is happening, just a little surprised it's happening so fast.

I like that he wants to settle down and get married, I think that's sweet. He's not the typical "player" type, chasing the women around forever. I hope they are very happy but I would be scared to jump into it that fast.

I totally agree with you!!!
After 7 weeks :eek: => OK, I can understand he doesn't want to wait another 5 years (it looks like he wants to get married at a young age), but after 7 weeks ... I mean, even if they were with each other day and night for those 7 weeks, they surely don't know each other 'inside out'.

My b/f and me are together for some years now, and still he can surprise me, doing things that I would never thought he would do (both in a positive & negative way).

But if it's really true, I hope he & Bec get very happy together and will live happely ever after (or how do they say it in fairy tails)!!!

You know that is the strangest thing - even if you can overlook the seven week courtship and get over the speed of the proposal. Why has Lleyt's previously so very media shy come over as a total media whore. A year ago I couldn't imagine anyone in the public eye less likely to sell their engagement, but now honestly I'm fully expecting a televised wedding. I just do not get it!

Bec Cartwright, who last night became engaged to Lleyton Hewitt, with Kip Gamblin who plays her boyfriend Scott Hunter in Home and Away.


Clearly Lleyton Hewitt likes getting engaged. As we all know, the 23-year-old was down on bended knee for the second time in his young life on Sunday, this time proposing to his girlfriend of eight weeks, Home & Away star and advice columnist Bec Cartwright. The romantic moment took place shortly after Hewitt lost the Australian Open to Russian Marat Safin, said Channel Seven.

Hewitt reportedly wooed Cartwright, 21, with a sparkling Tiffany & Co. diamond ring - rumoured to have cost more than $200,000 and allegedly bought from the jeweller's Melbourne store last Friday. Cartwright's management confirmed the engagement in a statement yesterday while she was working on the Palm Beach set of Home & Away.

"Lleyton and Bec met five years ago at a Starlight Foundation charity tennis day and rekindled their relationship late last year," it said. "The couple were instantly committed to each other ... "

Cartwright told media at Palm Beach yesterday: "I'm just back at work like any other day, it's just the same. I've got to go do my thing and be Hayley [Smith] for a couple more hours." Nor was there any sign of the feted ring. Cartwright couldn't wear it on set because - as one insider explained - "she's in character". Hayley is busy getting herself tangled in a love triangle, after her husband, a character named Noah, died recently. She is pictured above getting cosy with Kip Gamblin, who plays Scott Hunter. Meanwhile, Cartwright is negotiating with New Idea for an exclusive interview about her engagement to the tennis star.

AdvertisementNo doubt they'll also get the scoop on the home the pair are rumoured to be buying on Sydney's northern beaches.

Bec holds court

There was at least one person who wasn't exactly overjoyed about Cartwright and Hewitt's pending nuptials - Total Girl editor Sarah Cornish. Cartwright writes an advice column for the magazine, which is aimed at the "tween" market - girls aged between childhood and adolescence. As Cornish told Spike yesterday, having a married woman pen an advice column for girls who would rather fantasise about a pony than Justin Timberlake could prove a difficult proposition. Meanwhile, Cartwright certainly puts a lot of thought into her column. In the latest issue of Total Girl - which features Cartwright on the cover - reader Sarah writes in, telling Bec "I'm afraid of the dark. It makes me feel worried about going to sleepovers. Help!". Bec tells the frightened young reader she may be "less afraid of the dark having all your friends sleeping in the same room as you. You may even be surprised to find that lots of your friends actually feel the same way you do. When sleeping at home maybe ask Mum or Dad if you could put a little lamp beside the bed that you can leave on during the night.

Maybe Lleyton feels that he needs to get engaged and married quickly because he did have four years with Kim and still got dumped. So does the time really matter in the end?

Lisbeth
01-31-2005, 11:27 PM
That's a good point jusjctin!

In many cultures it's considered normal to decide you're ready to get married and then find the person (or ask your family or someone else to help you find someone). Interestingly, they tend to have quite successful marriages because people are committed to the institution and not just the person, so they don't ditch each other after the first blush. I'm not saying that system's better than ours but it's thought provoking.

Hewitt gets down on bended knee
Luke Dennehy
01feb05

LLEYTON Hewitt thrilled his soap star girlfriend Bec Cartwright by proposing with a $200,000 diamond ring after a seven-week romance. Hours after losing Sunday's Australian Open tennis final, Hewitt went down on bended knee to Cartwright, 21, in his room at the Park Hyatt.

She quickly erased Hewitt's pain at losing to Marat Safin by agreeing to marry him.
Hewitt's coach Roger Rasheed announced the surprise engagement in the early hours of Monday morning after the couple made a grand entrance at the hotel's swish Radii nightclub before 60 family and friends.

As champagne flowed, courtesy of an open bar tab, the 23-year-old tennis ace then hit the stage with a rousing performance, including Cold Chisel's hit Khe Sanh, as his devoted new fiancee looked on.

At the celebrations were Hewitt's parents, Cherilyn and Glynn, his sister Jaslyn and her boyfriend, Swedish tennis ace Joachim Johansson, Adelaide Crows star Andrew McLeod, Channel 7 presenter Bruce McAvaney, and Davis Cup coaches Wally Masur and John Fitzgerald.

One source described the four-carat diamond ring, bought at Tiffany's in Collins St, as a "boulder".

"It's awesome. I am really happy," Cartwright said yesterday, after flying to Sydney to resume filming Home and Away.

One party insider said Hewitt rose to the occasion with flying colours.

"It was a wonderful night . . . a very intimate affair where Lleyton really demonstrated what a mature young man he has grown into," the source said. "He made a great speech, mostly about tennis, where he thanked all his family and friends.

"Roger Rasheed actually announced the engagement, but everyone had their suspicions after seeing the rock on Bec's finger when they entered the room. It was huge and it had light bouncing off it all over the place."

The party continued until about 3am, when Hewitt headed to Crown casino with Cartwright and a handful of friends.

The couple got together at Richard Branson's Virgin party in December. They met five years ago at a Starlight Foundation dinner.

Both broke up with their partners in the final months of last year.

In October, Hewitt split from Kim Clijsters after a four-year relationship. They had planned to marry this week.

Hewitt's camp sought Cartwright's phone number after she broke up with actor Beau Brady.

The engagement yesterday dominated talkback radio and Internet fan forums around the world, with mixed opinions being aired.

Some praised Hewitt for his romantic haste; others said he was naive and on the rebound.

Sources said Hewitt's family was fully behind the engagement.

Cartwright is contracted for the year on Home and Away, so she will have little time to travel the international tennis circuit.

After that, she could become a regular, the source said.

Hewitt drops to knees, proposes and gives Bec a $200,000 ring
By BRONWYN HURRELL in Melbourne and JAMES HOOPER
01feb05
IT'S the whirlwind romance sealed with a $220,000 ring.

Lleyton Hewitt and Bec Cartwright became engaged after Hewitt dropped to his knee in a middle-of-the-night proposal after the Australian Open final on Sunday. The couple then celebrated at an exclusive, intimate party at Radii nightclub in Melbourne's Park Hyatt hotel early on Monday morning, with about 60 of Hewitt's family and friends.

Hewitt's coach Roger Rasheed revealed the surprise engagement announcement after the couple made a grand entrance, with Home and Away actor Cartwright sporting an enormous, glittering diamond on her left hand.

"It was a wonderful night, a very intimate affair where Lleyton really demonstrated what a mature young man he has grown into," one party insider said.

"Roger Rasheed actually made the engagement announcement, but everyone had their suspicions after the size of the rock on Bec's finger when they entered the room. It was huge and it had light bouncing off it all over the place."

Prominent Adelaide jeweller Albert Bensimon said $220,000 would buy a five to six carat diamond with multiple stones.


"It would be an oversized ring," he said.

Just months ago the South Australian tennis ace was left brokenhearted after Belgian fiancee Kim Clijsters called off their engagement over the phone.

Actor Cartwright was also ending a long-term relationship with her Home and Away boyfriend Beau Brady.

Yet, just eight weeks after going public at a Sydney party hosted by entrepreneur Richard Branson, they are now engaged. It was not quite love at first sight. The young sweethearts met five years ago at a charity event and rekindled their friendship late last year.

It is understood Hewitt, 23, had planned to pop the question hopefully coinciding with winning the tournament and came prepared with a large Tiffany's diamond ring. But he had to be content with just winning the girl and not the trophy.

The freshly engaged pair went separate ways yesterday – Cartwright back to the set of Home and Away north of Sydney and Hewitt said to be playing golf with Greg Norman in Melbourne.

"I'm just back at work like any other day," Cartwright said on the soapie set.

"It's just the same. I've just got to go do my thing and be Hayley (her character on the show) for a couple more hours."

Hewitt and Rasheed left the Park Hyatt just after midday yesterday in a black four-wheel drive, refusing to talk about the news.

Earlier, Lleyton's parents, Glynn and Cherilyn, ran through the waiting media contingent to take their morning jog.

Hewitt and former fiancee Clijsters, 21, were together for four years.

He proposed to the former women's No 1 tennis player on Sydney Harbour in 2003 with a diamond solitaire ring and they were to have been married in Adelaide next month.

But the Belgian tennis player ended the relationship in a phone call to Hewitt when he was on holiday in the Northern Territory with Crows footballer Andrew McLeod in October.

After being bombarded with Lleybec engagement news the shock's worn off for me as well. I think they look cute together, but that's not enough to make it work. All I hope is that this marriage won't speed up retirement. Once he gets hitched it seems it would be harder to leave home and his wife for 9 months a year. That won't be a problem though if she's willing to follow him and put aside her career. So yeah, for Lleyton's sake I hope he's truly happy and not just on the rebound making a rash/desperate decision. I still question the timing, :shrug: but it's his life.

Yes I agree with you and many fans feel the same ,its just to quick to get engaged as well as the $200,000 dollar ring its madness.I wonder why his mother did not put her $1 worth in and stop it like she helped mess up Lleytons relationship with Kim.So the Sydney press reported this weekend,it seems that she caused problems with Kims family by insisting they marry in Australia,problems that could not be fixed.If they had loved each other enough why didn't they take control of their own future??.Billhugh :wavey:

AUSTRALIAN OPEN
Exclusive: Bec Cartwright tells of her struggle to find love
by STAFF REPORTERS


In an exclusive interview with thebladder.com, soapie star Bec Cartwright has spoken candidly about the pain and loneliness she felt before finding Mr Right in the form of Aussie tennis star Lleyton Hewitt.

A radiant Cartwright, fresh from a critically-acclaimed performance as the concerned, supportive girlfriend over the two weeks of the Australian Open, says she can’t remember the last time she felt this contented.

“We’ve been together for seven weeks now, but I’ve just been sooooo happy the time has flown by. It feels more like four weeks, five tops,” she said, seated by the pool at her luxury hotel in South Yarra. “I didn’t realise it until Lley Lley and I went out late last year, but he’s what I’ve been looking for ever since the heartache and despair I felt when Beau and I split up.”

With tears welling in her eyes and her minders readying to step in, Cartwright bravely recounted the dark days between losing Beau and finding the light again with Lleyton.

“Me and Beau separated on a Friday and it was the most painful thing I’ve ever had to go through, even worse than Alf Stewart pashing me on the cheek,” Cartwright told thebladder.com. “Those were the darkest days I’ve ever known. I felt all alone in the world, I felt abandoned, my family was worried, and I even missed one of my Step Reebok classes. I didn’t want to go on.

“But the following Thursday, six heart-rending days later, Lley Lley, and I went to a plush party on Richard Branson’s boat, and it was like a light was shone into my endless sorrow. There was all this free cocaine there and we fell into bed together and made like rabbits the whole night. He even gave me a nickname for the night – Kimmy. He still won’t tell me what it means, but I just think it’s beautiful.

But there’s one question home and away fans all want the answer to: will she continue to work on the show? With a new man in her life, Cartwright says her acting career could be sacrificed to be at his side while he tours the world.

AUSTRALIAN OPEN
Open loss fall-out continues for Hewitt
by STAFF REPORTERS


Lleyton Hewitt continues to feel the ramifications of his heart-breaking loss to Marat Safin in the Haircare Products Australian Open after discovering that he proposed to Ken Rosewall immediately following the match.

“I was emotional, it was a world of pain to know I’d gone so close then fallen short,” Hewitt told The Bladder from vacation at Queensland’s luxurious C’mon Island.

“I was slumped, with my head down and I was sure it was Bec (girlfriend and soapie star Bec Cartwright) who approached me and ruffled my hair.

“Without looking up, I said: ‘This is an unimaginably painful moment for me; to lose my own nation’s Open championship. But deep down, all I can think of is that my life has been immeasurably better since the day you walked into my world. Meeting you has completed me and I know know, at this minute, that I want us to be together for the rest of our lives. I want to caress you and hold you and love you like wild animals, yet I want to watch our grandchildren play at our feet as well.’

“Then this old guy’s voice said: ‘It all sounds good, mate, but I already have grandchildren and I think they might have out-grown playing around my feet by the time your grandchildren are born.’”

Tournament director Paul McNamee said afterwards: “Ken always has been very level-headed and logical. It didn’t surprise me at all that he immediately found the flaw in Lleyton’s scenario.”

Hewitt recovered quickly from his shock and shook Rosewall’s hand, as the Australian tennis legend congratulated him on a great tournament.

It was only when Rosewall’s management rang Hewitt, asking if he was ready to set a date for the wedding that post-Open panic set in.

Cartwright is said to be furious at Hewitt’s potential marital entanglement to the grey-haired Davis Cup hero and is considering having the entire scandal written into her script so “I’ll know what my character would do, and then find my way from that truth.”

This relationship is like the rebound from hell. Can we seriously mark this down as the worst rebound in the history of the world? The only thing that would've made it worse is if they had actually gotten married the day after the Aussie Open.

no,no... it wouldve been worse if Lleyton had won the Aussie Open and got down on bended knee and proposed during the awards ceremony. I wonder if that was the initial plan???

I really don't think that was the plan originally. I've explained my reasons for this before.

Omg :rolleyes: Who are you, and what have you done with the real Lleyton?

In terms of his tennis he is still there, but the rest of him seemed to die sometime in October

I particularly don't like it either... A brain transplant has happened, him who didn't like coming in front of the media at all, that's a U turn. :eek: Or maybe Bec did make him get used to it :confused: , I dunno what to think really. I just hope whatever the changes that occured in him somewhere will make him happy and play well.

I don't think he's used to it at all. The comment he made about the women's final made it pretty obvious that he is still bitter about the Kim situation. Watch him change back as soon as they talk to eachother and sort things out [regardless of whether they get back together]. I just hope that one of them will make the phone call before he marries Bimbo

So everybody misses the old lose-in-the-fourth-round Lleyton and hates the new lose-in-the final Lleyton.

I don't get the media whore thing.

The engagement was announced. There were no pictures of the party with the inappropriate song. He hasn't given an interview post-engagement; they haven't given an interview together.

This "whore" rep seems mainly based on her quotes and on the one posed photo on the boat.

When he was engaged to Kim, there was certainly media coverage: he gave mushy quotes in interviews "the most important thing" etc; she released info about her dress on her website; we knew the location in Belgium. It's not like there was a veil of privacy over the whole thing.

Also, there are plenty of pictures of Lleyton and Kim at parties, courtside; there are pictures of them kissing, reports of them making out in public - raging exhibitionists that they are. ;) Then there's the love match; if that wasn't a giant relationship p.r. thing, then what is? I think it even had t-shirts.

He seems a little more confident, but why is that bad?

Yes, I think they are getting married too quickly.

I also think that Beau Brady's camp is lying. They can't even get the dates of the supposed engagement right and didn't he say that it had nothing to do with him when news of Lleyton and Bec dating first came out.

Talk about media whore.
