TV: Dr. Naomi Bennett and Dr. Gabriel Fife

Dr. Naomi Bennett (played by Audra MacDonald) meets Dr. Gabriel Fife (played by Michael Patrick Thornton) by bumping heads over a procedure.  Naomi is an ob/gyn and Gabriel is a genetic specialist and the two disagree over a couple of patients. Soon they aren't bumping heads, but lips. There are some ups and downs, especially when Naomi has some issues with her job and her daughter.  That doesn't stop her from running after something that was going right.

This couple no longer on Private Practice, on ABC, as the two moved to New York at the end of Season Four.

Bronwen and Richard met in December 2009 and went on one amazing date... then he dropped the ball completely, and they didn't see one another again until February 2010.

TV: Dr. Lanie Parish and Javier Esposito

Dr. Lanie Parish (played by Tamala Jones) is in a hot and heavy relationship with cop Javier Esposito (played by Jon Huertas).  Lanie can see the tension between her friend Kate Beckett and Kate's best selling author charge, Richard Castle, and hopes she can influence Kate into example. She's probably so happy with her own relationship that she needs to see her friend happy as well. But this is TV land, and happiness doesn't keep an audience so you'll need to stay tuned. You can see this couple on Castle shown on ABC.

Three Years!

I've had this blog for three years now (Wow, I thought it was two!) and from the feedback I've received, I know I'm not the only one who enjoys it. That makes me a happy blogger. :o)

I really tried over the year to even out the posts and put in a variety of different couples from television & movie couples, celebrity couples, and Just Us. Sometimes it was hard to strike a balance, like this past summer. My email was flooded with pictures of wonderful couples and I just had to post them all!

Many people have asked me to post a picture of me and mine, and I eventually promised that I would so somewhere in the last two years of couples is mine. You can speculate as much as you'd like but I won't give a definitive answer.

I will continue to keep up the blog as long as I am able. My email remains the same (not put directly in any text to avoid spam and bots.) I refuse to put posts that will cause arguments and disruption - this is a peaceful blog. There are plenty of other places on the Internet to throw out opinions that incite.

Finally, a big thank you all of you who have placed Just Like Me Couples in your Blogrolls or who have clicked on the button to follow. I truly appreciate your support.

Tracy and Jason

Tracy and Jason have been married for 18 years. They have 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls.

Some quotes from Tracy:
"We call ourselves a "brown peach combination."

"When we were pregnant with our 3rd, we were at the zoo and our two older kids were riding a ride and we were waving to them as they circled past.
I had noticed a woman staring us down from the other side of the ride, just that kind of stare that couples like us get, "How did those two get together?"
I looked at Jason and said "That lady really likes my hair." And he said without skipping a beat. "Yup honey she is looking at your hair." It just made me laugh so hard."

"I am half African American and half Mexican. I was adopted at three months of age to peach parents. I get asked all the time "What are you?" and I answer and listen to the "No way and I was right!" and one thing I love about him the most? He never once asked. He just loves me and I love him."

Gelila Assefa and Wolfgang Puck

Gelila Assefa married Wolfgang Johannes Puck, born Wolfgang Johannes Topfschnig in July of 2007. Ethioian born Gelila is a fashion designer while Austrian born Wolfgang is a celebrity chef and restaurant owner. They have two boys, Oliver and Alexander. Wolfgang has two sons from a previous marriage.

My Comments: Researching for this entry was interesting. First, Wikipedia does not mention any of Wolfgang's wives, much less Gelila. Second, the IMDb entry incorrectly lists one child for the couple. Third, there are numerous articles and comments out there maligning the relationship due to the way they met. According to many, Wolfgang started an intimate relationship with Gelila while still married to his second wife.

Just a reminder, the focus of my blog is to post couples, not to judge their life choices. That I leave up to you.
