November 2nd, 2005 // 7 Comments

Kenny Chesney told Life magazine that breaking up with Renee Zellweger was “like opening the door to your house and having someone come in and take your big-screen TV off the wall during the big game, and there’s nothing you can do about it.”

    Look at that boy – you can’t tell me he’s not playing for the other team…

  2. Cheesy

    Well…. THAT is certainly one of the strangest analogies to describe the breakup of a marriage that I’ve ever heard.

  3. GirlyGirl

    Nothing quite says ‘I love you’ like calling her a big screen tv… what do ya’ll think he did with the remote????

  4. Cheesy: I thought the same EXACT thing when I read it! Literally. The same words and everything.

  5. Nothing says country music quite like comparing the dissolution of your marriage to a big screen TV.

    If he were smart, he would use that quote as the chorus for his next country song…I can hear it now

    NEWSFLASH:
    Friday, 11/04/05 The Tennessean newspaper reports:

    ‘Life’ magazine issues apology to Kenny

    Life magazine did wrong by Kenny Chesney, and now the magazine is apologizing.

    Life, currently a weekly insert in dozens of papers nationwide, sent out a press release announcing Kenny was talking about his split with Renee Zellweger when he said:

    “It was like opening the door to your house and having someone come in and take your big-screen TV off the wall during the big game, and there’s nothing you can do about it.”

    Hold up. A copy of the magazine shows that Kenny actually was asked: “Were you taken aback by all the attention your breakup with Renee Zellweger got?”

    BIG difference. One question asks about feelings toward Renee, the other his feelings about paparazzi.

    After I called to point out the discrepancy, the magazine issued this statement yesterday:

    “The Life publicity department certainly never intended to misrepresent the question our magazine posed to Kenny Chesney in the 11/11 issue. We take full responsibility for it, and we regret the error.”
