Kenny Chesney Speaks Out


This week in People Kenny Chesney is on the cover page and ready to talk about his break up from Renée Zellweger in an emotional interview. I am not sure if you guys are really familiar with Kenny, aside from being Renée's ex-husband, but I really did not know anything about him until he met Renée Zellweger. Then after he started appearing in many People Magazine issues with his marriage to Renée is when I started to acknowledge him and realize he is a country singer and a good looking and very fit man. Now I feel as though after his breakup he needs to find himself again away from Renée and let the world know his side of the story.

Renée Zellweger and Kenny Chesney were only married for four months before calling it quits. They seemed to have had a happy marriage that I guess did not end up being as happy as it looked. Kenny was very hurt about the break up and said "I'm sad, I'm angry, and I'm hurt and confused. This is not what I envisioned my life to be six months ago," in which he told to People Magazine. In addition,
not only was he upset about his break up but the media was also making false statements about him and Renée. Kenny said, about the press, that "they've done nothing short of calling me gay and her a whore. None of those things are true. I'm pretty firm in my sexuality and my love for women." Poor Kenny. However, Kenny said that him and Renée still care about one another and they have gotten together even after their breakup. I think Kenny is a good looking guy with a good career and he will be strong through this tough time.

Another issue in People I want to fill you guys in on is about Tyra Banks modeling in a fat suit for her show, "The Tyra Banks Show." She went undercover as a 350 pound woman for the main purpose of seeing how obese people are treated by other individuals. She said that this was "one of the most heartbreaking days of my life." The reactions she got from other people were horrible and Tyra was very upset by this turn out, as I am sure many would be. So many people take advantage of their lives and they do not even think of those out there that are in this obese condition. Please click on this link below to watch an interview Tyra had with ABC News and watch of her obese experience... http://abcnews.go.com/Video/playerIndex?id=1280916.

    I too was never all that familiar with Kenny Chesney before his Renee days. I mean I knew that he was a country singer but probably couldn’t have pictured him otherwise before his relationship with Renee got him in all of the magazines. He is definitely a good-looking guy and I cannot imagine him being single for all too long. I feel bad for him because it really seems like he wanted this to work out and all considering he is still hurt and upset and didn’t picture things to be like this 6 months ago like you said. It is nice to hear however that the two are still friends and carry on a relationship after all that went down. It’s too bad the media has once again meddled in their lives and has made a difficult situation that much harder. As for Tyra going undercover I think that many people really don’t realize that some people suffer from obesity the way they do when the disguise themselves as Tyra did to find out for herself. I’ve seen this done before and it didn’t surprise me to read that it was an emotional and heartbreaking day for Tyra to experience.

    I always loved Kenny Chesney since he made it big in the country music world because I listen to a good amount of country. It was truly a shock when he and Renee got married pretty soon after they started dating - it was not a couple I would have predicted. They seemed so happy but I guess just as quick as some romances start, they end. I feel bad for all celebrity couples when they break up or divorce because the media makes it so much harder for them than it already is. However, I don’t really remember the press alleging that Kenny is gay or that Renee is a whore…I think he may be overreacting a little bit. But regardless, I hope the media has backed off a little bit because I’m sure it is still very hard for the couple to cope with the breakup.

    I did hear about Tyra Banks dressing up in a fat suit and I am glad that someone that is always looked at as beautiful and skinny and well-liked stepped out of her comfort zone to experience what others who are not those ideal images feel. I think many of us have a lot to learn from Tyra’s experience.

    The only thing I knew about Kenny Chesney before he started dating and was married to Renee 5 minutes later was that he was a country singer. Before reading the People magazine article all I knew was that he was a country singer who was getting a divorce from Renne after a couple of months of marriage. I still can't name a song of his, but that's probably becuase I'm not a country music type of girl. I think Tyra has been a great role model to a lot of girls. On America's next Top Model, she really tries to help the girls and by putting on a "fat suit" she was really seeing how different people live. This may help her help more people in the future. Good for her!

    Unlike many people, I am pretty familiar with Kenny Chesney. Being an avid fan of country music for years now and even seeing him in concert twice I was totally shocked when I heard he married Renee. They looked so in love when they got married on the gorgeous beach but like many hollywood couples, it was short lived. I really dont have a opinion to who was the cause of the breakup but I do think they rushed into the marriage. It take time to build a relationship and I dont think they gave it much thought. I feel bad for both of them and think the media totally hurt whatever chances they had of staying together. Hopefully they can still be friends. I really do think they made a great couple.

    Now on to Tyra, I think going undercover was a real eye opener, so many people dont realize what it's like being obese. By her doing this hopefully people will stop making fun of people with weight problems and take them more seriously.

    Before the whole Kenny and Renee bit, I just thought Kenny Chesney was another one of those cheezy country singers who wears cowboy boots and a cow boy hat and it like a god in the country music world. (Personally, I am not in to the whole country music thing!) I was a bit surprised when him and Renee suddenly tied the knot, but then again its Hollywood and they are both celebrities. I honestly should have bet money on them splitting! I knew it wasn't going to work out. They both have busy careers and one might think that it might make their relationship stronger since they both can understand what each other is going through, but honestly, I think it was prescription for disaster! As for Tyra going undercover in a fat suit, was she really surprised at the outcome! It's easy for her a Victoria's Secret supermodel to "play fat" for a day when she knows that at the end of the day she can lose like 200 pounds in 10 seconds by taking off the suit. That is a tough situation to discuss and to try to relate to and understand...

    YO!! alright i've been spending alot of time with the blogs from the fellas in class. You know, all the football blogs. They get pretty rough, theres a ton of shit-talking that goes on those blogs. I dare some of you girls to check them out. Its a whole different world!!
    Anyway, I was watching the show Talk Soup on the E channel and they were totally ripping on Tyra Banks' bit on the life of fat woman. It showed clips of her blind dates and the reactions that she got from the guys was not that bad. It seemed like she was trying to make something out of nothing. I didnt watch the actualy show, but these clips made it seem like Tyra was degrading overweight women. I personally hate seeing all these shows that try to force bad behavior out of normal dudes. Shame on you Tyra. Maybe one day you will actually look like you did in that fat suit.
    I wish i could comment on kenny chesney, but i dont listen to country, so i'll spare you guys.
    alright ladies--- see ya around

    I hadn't even heard Kenny Chesney's name until I read this post. I didn't even know that Renee was married, really. I suppose it was a short marriage so I probably just hadn't heard. I feel bad for him because you said he's so hurt and confused. He'll find his way out and maybe due to the publicity his career will be stronger.
    I had heard about Tyra doing that episode of her show and I was curious as to how it went, but I missed it. I watched the video from the link you added and they really made her look rather large. Some of the things that people said to her were very rude. I'm surprised that that guy wasn't shocked when he found out it was really Tyra Banks sitting across from him. He just shook her hand and said nice to meet you! She seemed disgusted with many people's reactions and finally realized what it's like not to be perfect.

    I don’t personally know what to think about the whole Renee and Kenny thing – not that I really have a right to need an opinion on it. But basically I would just really like to know why she claimed fraud in the divorce papers but they are both saying that they still talk and decided not to publicize anything about why they broke up really. It seems pretty sketchy that she is claiming fraud, and he is saying they are still friends, and everyone else is saying he’s gay. It just doesn’t add up. I feel bad for both of them though, because they are so in the media because of it and because what seemed so perfect just months ago ended up ending so badly and so quickly.

    When Renee married Kenny Chesney I can join the club and say I had absolutely no idea who he was. All I knew was he wore a cowboy hat so I assumed he was a country singer and I thought the two looked happy. I really don’t even remember the two dating, but picture of her in a wedding gown quickly filled the pages of People Magazine. I can't believe their marriage only lasted four short months. When I learned of the couple's break up I was shocked. What went wrong? I am glad that Kenny now has a chance to tell his side of the story. I feel bad for him that he is so upset and confused. Hopefully he can find happiness in the near future because he sounds like a great guy who definitely deserves it.
    Tyra Banks is not the first celebrity to go under cover and receive such treatment. Every time the same results occur and I think it is absolutely pathetic. It really goes to show just how shallow people can be.

    I am not into country music at all, but my friends defiantly are, and Kenny is not that bad. I am sad that him and Renee are not going strong. I really like her, even though her weight fluctuations are a little disturbing. However, I do feel like he is the cute puppy dog type and she is totally a heartless bitch type (when she is skinny). When she is fat she seems like she is sweeter. Nevertheless, I hear Kenny has some crazy concerts. Lots of rednecks, lots of booze, and lots of good times. Twenty dollars that weird cowboy guys who shows up at random parties with spurs on has been to a few. If everyone there is like him, count me in! Someone should have had a blog dedicated to the life of the weird cowboy guy.

    Ok yes, I'm sure Tyra Banks must have had a "heartbreaking" experience BUT she got to take the fat suit off. I feel like discrimination against obese people is something that we don't really think about but it is an issue and obviously, it occurs. People judge you as soon as they look at you and I know that larger people are often laughed at in public, whispered about, and I am sure that it is hard for them to date. I do have to give Tyra Banks credit though for taking on that experience. She is a gorgeous supermodel and I'm sure that she has never experienced anything like that in her life.
    In regards to Kenny Chesney's break-up, if I were him I would just not talk about it. It seems when celebrity break-ups are publicized it just makes things work and I believe in keeping certain things private. I do have sympathy for him but it is not so suprising that they broke up seeing as how they were married months after they first met.

    I love Kenny Chesney. I've been a fan of his for a while- way before the Renee drama. I must say, i have been reading the articles though. I remember hearing about Kenny being gay because or what the divorce papers stated.
    i can't help but still wonder why they got divorced. Maybe they just rushed into things a bit too early. I doubt we'll ever know, and unfortunately, it's probably not our business, even though i can't help to want to know the gossip :) As long as they are both happy, thats all that matters, right?
