Prior to the wonderful Google News feed the
main source of news was an update on this
site, when possible. For those who like to look
back at such information I repeat all these

This will be the last news update for Meg in 2000 and what an eventful year this has been for this popular actress. Her personal life rarely out of the
international media and in general publicity about her anything but good.
But having said this, if you have read as many different reports as I have this year, you will note that no two stories are the same and that
every report contradicts another in some way. It is therefore hard to know what to believe. Whatever the truth I am sure Meg will be looking
forward to putting the year 2000 behind her and starting afresh in 2001.
To end Meg's year on a positive note I am pleased to say that Meg Ryan has agreed for her portrait to be on the National Kidney Research
Fund calendar for 2001 together with many other big names such as Eddie Murphy and Heather Locklear. A great actress supporting a
great cause. If any fans would like to get hold of this calendar the National Kidney Research Funds free phone no in the UK is 0800 783
2973 they are £5.99 plus £1.50 postage and packing to the UK. For international enquiries you will need to phone your operator to obtain
the phone number from your country for this charity. Obviously postage and packing charges will be more expensive.
The end of 2000 and just when it appeared as though Meg has been left alone by the international media a few more stories hit the international
press. There are reports in Australia about Meg staying with Russell Crowe in his Australian home. Another story in Hello says that Russell bought Meg
a £16000 car, a 1963 Buick Riviera, but that she appeared to not be very enthusiastic about it. Mind you they did report it was her 38th Birthday when in
fact she is 39.
More devastating, as far as the Ryan/Crowe romance issue is concerned, is the UK's Daily Mirror interview with Russell Crowe in which he denies he
and Meg are to marry and says that he hasn't met the right woman to marry yet.
On another note it is also reported in the papers that at US previews of Proof Of Life many of the audience got up and left before the end of the movie
because they couldn't take the on-screen love affair between Ryan and Crowe seriously in fact many are reported to have laughed at these scenes.
So we roll into November with Meg ,Russell and Dennis still featuring highly in the international press. There are now so many reports flying about that
you simply don't know what, if anything, to believe.
First there were the aerial photos of Meg's new mansion in LA which she has bought for privacy. Some privacy when you have helicopters flying
overhead taking pictures of your home!
Then there were reports in the Australian press that Meg and Russell are to marry in January 2001 because Meg's and Dennis's divorce will be absolute
then and that the invitations have already gone out.
Finally there are reports in the US media that Meg is planning to have her breasts enlarged to keep Russell happy.
Whatever the truth is all the above was reported in a period of about 11days. Who knows what will happen in the remaining 19 days of this month apart
from Meg's 39th birthday which is on Sunday 19th November.
Late October 2000 and the National Enquirer reports that according to "sources" Meg Ryan wants to have Russell
Whether this is true or not although I am a huge Meg Ryan fan there are times when I wish the media would leave
this poor woman alone to get on with her life and making good movies. Whatever the true situation is Meg, Dennis,
Jack and even Russell Crowe deserve some privacy!
September / October 2000
No longer is there a reconciliation between Meg and Dennis and according to press and magazine reports there never was one. Meg's relationship with
Russell Crowe is reported to be continuing with magazines saying that she has been introduced to Russell's parents.
Meg has also been quoted as saying that her marriage to Dennis was effectively over long before falling in love with Russell. She has also said that both
she and Dennis have agreed they will never talk about their marriage break up.
