It’s a slow Canadian entertainment news day, so I thought I’d share a little piece of gossip my grandmother just shared with me. I don’t remember her saying it was off the record, so here we go:
In today’s edition of things I didn’t know about the Canadian Media, did you know that CBC’s Peter Mansbridge and Wendy Mesley were once married!?
Maybe this is something that everyone knew, or maybe it’s not. But I certainly had no clue! And if we are really going to get gossipy, acc
ording to my grandmother, Mansbridge cheated on Mesley with his current wife Cynthia Dale. Who is Cynthia Dale you ask? She is that lady from Street Legal!
Yikes. That is some major Melrose Place action taking place in the halls of CBC.
Now I don’t know if any of this is true, but I tend to believe my grandmother. Hell, the whole thing took place in the early nineties. But since blogs didn’t exist then, it’s technically news to Mike’s Bloggity Blog. But seriously, could you imagine cheating on Wendy Mesley? That girl would totally show up with a camera crew to your divorce proceeding and go all Marketplace on your ass. She seems nice, but Mesley is currently on my list of female canadians that terrify me. The list’s sole other occupant is Metric’s Emily Haines.
