"Bennifer", "Monica-gate", "Brad-nifer"...

US supermarket tabloids like to give nicknames to celebrity couples or their famous court cases that grab headlines. The most recent is "Bennifer", referring to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s botched engagement. Bill Clinton’s affair with his intern is dubbed "Monica-gate", named after the infamous intern. Clinton’s illegal land sale investigation was nicknamed "Whitewater-gate", after the name of the said property. Or George Bush and his "Iraq-gate".

Here are some suggestions I can think of:

  • "Bennifer" - Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez’s botched engagement.
  • "Bennifer II" - Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner’s planned engagement.
  • "Brad-nifer" - Brad Pitt & Jennifer Aniston’s sudden divorce.
  • "Manly Fur" – Elton John & his gay partner’s planned wedding.
  • "Arm Pitt" - Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt’s alleged affair (yeah, I know it's lame but couldn't resist it).
  • "Mark Anthony & J'Leopatra" - Marc Anthony & Jennifer Lopez’s unlikely marriage.

Here are some more unlikely ones:

  • The recent defamatory court case involving Siti Nurhaliza & Sharifah Aini - "Beauty & the Beast"
  • Charles & Camilla’s royal wedding - "Charlie & the Oleo-Factory" or "Donkey & Old Maid"
  • Britney Spears & Jason Alexander’s quickie marriage & annulment - "I Seriously Thought He Was That Loser on Seinfeld"
  • Britney Spears & Kevin Federline’s unexpected wedding - "This one lasted for more than 72 hours" or "I thought I was marrying Roger Federer"
  • Paris Hilton & Nicole Ritchie acrimonious split - "The Bleached Blonde & the Blonde Bitch"
  • Michael Jackson & numerous un-named little boys – "The Wanna-See-my-Billie-Jean Scandal"

You can see its been a slow day for me…
