Here's a clear indication of another stupid Hollywood trend. Couples merging their first names together as one. 'Brangelina' was only the beginning, now here's another example. 'Zacessa'

Sheesh...it used to be they only did that to couples when everybody knew who both of the celebs were! Contrary to what the tabloids think 99 % of the population has never seen 'HSM', doesn't want to, and couldn't give a rat's ass who those soon-to-be-hasbeens are.

Uh...I don't think the "couples" are responsible.  It's a gossip column trend.   I find it amusing.  Especially when I look back at other famous couples and try to do a "Bennifer" etc. with the names.   It's not really that new.   The first couple to do it on their OWN was.....DESILU.  Wink

That was the name of their production company.  It's not as if they referred to themselves as DesiLu.

Wow, i forgot about that. I'm surprise that Brad, and Angelina lasted this long. I wonder if the Brad, and Jennifer Aniston were refered to as 'Bradifer' by the gossip hags.

I'm not certain 'dumb' is the word for it, HR; maybe a 'justification for a 'His & Hers Gas Chamber'....

On WWE Monday Night Raw, they have these two wrestlers:  Santino Marella, and Beth "the Glamazon" Phoenix.  Ever since they got together, they became known as "Glamarella."

How retarded is that (of merging couples' names)? Ermm
Mankind is divided into two classes: those who earn their living by the sweat of their brow, and those who sell them handkerchiefs, cold drinks, and electric fans.

It's spawned from the disgusting internet subculture known as "shippers" who feel the need to concoct as many fantasy relationships in their heads as possible.

"OMG GUYS, I WANT JACK ON LOST TO HAVE A GAY RELATIONSHIP WITH LOCKE! I SUPPORT THE JOCKE RELATIONSHIP!"

It's sickening. Shippers should be exterminated.

One question is, can the people who use these names ever again criticize people who call wives after their husbands (as in "Mrs. John Smith")?
