. . . to a bloke who has changed his name from a perfectly good one to a reeeeeally stoopid one, and who works for his uncle on a pointless vanity project.

Yeah flame away, I know I am being U. I expect he's lovely. Or something.

But if I was her Mum, I'd be "Kate, Kate! Let your Aunty Ivy set you up with a nice suitable boy!!

Is this her third marriage?

charitygirl Thu 27-Dec-12 16:46:01

Arf! Yes, he sounds really mature.

YABU, it's her choice to marry who she wants, regardless of how silly you think his name is, like that is what his entire personality is based on?

His name is silly. You can't get away from it. It is a silly name.

Is she a woman who loves to be 'in love' and totally believes in romance and has to have a man in her life?

Good luck to them.

What does Ned do though, what is his job?, and will she be known as Kate RocknRoll in her private life I wonder grin

Well given that he picked his name, I expect it's indicative of his personality. I used to think she was quite down to earth until she ran off with a director of one of her films and then took up with Richard Bransons hippy nephew.

He sounds like an immature PITA, and she irritates the hell out of me so I think they make a great couple!

VBisme Thu 27-Dec-12 16:53:57

His "job" appears to be "Richard Bransons nephew", and the name change is very look at me don't you think?

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

Thats a very good job for someone with such a silly name.

Northernlebkuchen Thu 27-Dec-12 16:55:29

She can get married as often as she wishes but I think marrying a bloke who's changed his name from 'Abel Smith' to Ned Rocknroll is errrrrrrrrrrrr damn stupid optimistic

BalloonSlayer Thu 27-Dec-12 16:56:31

According to the BBC he "works for his uncle's space flight company, Virgin Galactic."

Not smirking at all, no, not me, no sir.

Moominsarehippos Thu 27-Dec-12 16:56:32

What's his name? How can I get a job as a Richard Branson vanity project?

Northernlebkuchen Thu 27-Dec-12 16:57:22

and yes I do think Kate has a problem with needing to be in love as opposed to loving someone.

KatieSantaPawskitty Thu 27-Dec-12 16:57:36

She's deffo up the duff.

May I suggest "Webuiltthiscityon" as a name?

MrsJREwing Thu 27-Dec-12 16:58:37

I will eat my hat if they celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary.

Kate seems to be in love with the "falling in love hormones" .

Nice one, Katie, but I prefer the more simple "Ilove"

KatieSantaPawskitty Thu 27-Dec-12 17:00:22

Thisis Let's hope it's twins!

MrsTerrysChocolateOrange Thu 27-Dec-12 17:00:29

Duncan Jones uses sensible name rather than Zowie Bowie = good sign.

Abel Smith changes name to Ned Fucking RockNRoll = bad sign.

dexter73 Thu 27-Dec-12 17:00:58

She might have twins and then you could use both those brilliant names!

uptheamp Thu 27-Dec-12 17:01:04

haha what a knob (allegedly)

Shortened from, "Put another dime in the juke box, baby,"

SugaricePlumFairy Thu 27-Dec-12 17:01:41

I wonder if she her lawyers arranged a pre-nup?

A pre-nup would NOT be very rocknroll tho.
