barbie and ken lovers

You know those couples that make you SO jealous and make you believe that love is real and it can happen to you? [Or the ones that completely break your heart and your hope for love when they break up..] I have the Top 10 list of them, and an Honorable Mention.

I call them--> my Barbies and Kens:

Honorable Mention: Sean Puffy Puff Daddy P Diddy Diddy Combs and Jennifer J.Lo Lopez -- 1998-2001
Okay so, in hindsight, this probably wasn't a good relationship.. But ya gotta admit that at the time, they were one of the hottest couples around. Their looks matched, and I think individually, this was the high points of their careers. J.Lo was still Jennifer.. Jenny from the Block, if you will, and bangin' out awesome songs. Diddy.. or Puff Daddy, wasn't the cocky SOB that he is today.. Well, not as bad, anyways. How I miss those days..

Ashton Kutcher && Demi Moore -- 2003- still goin strong
As much as I am kind of weirded out by the age difference in the two, they are a damn good couple. The fact that they can be married and happy and cute, while still getting together with Demi's ex Bruce Willis is amazing to me. (And weird kinda.. But cool.) It seems like they're always going to be in that puppy love stage.. life, forever.

Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson -- 1997-2005
Okay, okay.. So it's either cliche, or stupid of me to include them.. But I'm sorry, when they were together, they were PERFECT! Or so it seemed, anyways. She could definitely be herself with him, and he seemed to love every second of it. It provided good entertainment and definitely made me want to be a Newlywed. ;)

Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams -- 2004- now.. kinda.
Any female is going to agree with me here.. Or any guy who likes The Notebook. The two met while filming the most amazing love story of a movie ever, and then fell in love off-screen too! They have been off and on a little bit, but that doesn't even matter. When we see them kiss, it's like our wildest dreams of a "Notebook story" coming true. Plus, as of now, they're totally together! They're always having fun and being goofy and touching each other. It's real. I know it. Fairy tales can come true.

Que Mosley and Dawn Richard -- 2008- puppy love

If you're one of my MTB lovers, all I have to say is: silver slippers. If not, they are the perfect definition of puppy love right now.. And I think it's going to last.. At least for a little while. Que is absolutely in love with the girl, saying he's going to marry her, etc. It all started with her refusing to give him a chance, but when she did, she fell hard, too. She still doesn't love showing her affection to everyone, but it's obvious it's there.. And he makes her losen up quite a bit. They're precious.

Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears -- 1998-2002
Call me typical or whatever you want, but these two were the epitome of a great couple during the pop era. Everything about them matched. Plus, they had the fairytale story of growing up together in the public eye and hitting the big time together the whole way. They were always having fun, laughing, and keeping each other sane. They both admit to this day that the breakup was one of the hardest times of their lives. And really, if you don't believe me on this being a great example of Barbie and Ken, google image them. They're amazing together and every day I hope it'll happen again. :)

Ryan Phillipe and Reese Witherspoon -- 1997-2006
After Jen and Brad broke up, I had given up on love. When I started to believe in it again, it was because of these two. They seemed to place NOTHING above their marriage and kids.. Until the split. When I once again realized love isn't real. Everything matched with them. They were like a puzzle that fit together without any force.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill -- 1996- still very in love
These two know how to do it right in Hollywood. Or Nashville.. wherever they may be. They both have hugely successful country music careers, yet they make time for each other and their family. They have even set rules on how long they can go without seeing each other, and it's not a very long time. Still, they go tour on their own, and make special appearances at each others shows when they can.. AND record tons of singles together. If this marriage were to ever fail, that's it. I'd be done with relationships. I'd give up. I need them together forever. And they will be.

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston -- 1998-2005
When you think of perfect couples, TELL ME you think of these two. I don't care if you on stupid Angelina's side, THESE TWO represented perfection. When they broke up, I gave up on love.. no joke. Their looks matched, their body languge.. everything. And if you can honestly look at pictures of them, and then compare to pictures of Brad and Angelina, and tell me that he's happier now.. You're lying to yourself. Period.

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi -- 2004- just married!
So this example may not technically have a "Ken".. but they definitely represent a perfect couple. They just got married over the summer once it was finally legal, and it's so obvious that they couldn't be happier. They're both equally as infatuated with each other. Beyond all of that, they're opening the nation's eyes to show that homosexuality is no big deal.

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith -- 1996- forever.
These two are the definition of real love. They're not in the relationship just to be in the public eye, there's not one that thinks they are better than the other.. They are in it for each other and their beautiful family. They are ALL VERY talented, but they don't flaunt it. I have no doubt in my mind that even if neither of them were famous, they would still be together. They're soulmates. A couple we'll remember AND SEE forever. They're legends.

Ahh, I love reliving the past with relationships, and seeing people all happy and lovey together. It's cute. :)

Congrats and good luck to those couples still together.. for those who we've "lost"... I will always have hope for a reunion.. ;)

As always, let me know what you think! :)
