Another woman is coming between Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds! When the two recently visited his family in Vancouver, Blake got into a major fight with Ryan’s mother, Tammy, Star (via RadarOnline.com) reports.
“Tammy would like to see Ryan with a woman who’s not in the movie business because she feels that, ultimately, actresses put their careers first,” a “source” dishes to the mag. “And she thinks Blake is pressuring Ryan into settling down before he’s ready. He [also] rushed into his first marriage, with Scarlett Johansson.”
Tammy has a point: Ryan’s divorce from Scarlett was finalized just 10 months ago, and Blake and Ryan have been together for eight months. The two are already “unofficially engaged” (did he give her a promise ring like they’re in junior high?) and plan to marry during the summer of 2013 at their new estate in Bedford, N.Y., Star‘s source says. That’s definitely moving pretty fast!
But Tammy blows any chance she has at her concerns being taken seriously by “trying to take over the wedding planning” and wanting “to invite all these family friends Blake doesn’t know.” (So … she doesn’t want them to get married but wants to plan their wedding? Talk about mixed signals!) Plus, Tammy wants Blake and Ryan to relocate to Vancouver.
“She says when they have kids, Blake and Ryan should raise them in Canada because it’s safer,” the source tells Star. “Blake refuses to even consider that, saying that she has to be in New York for work.”
Gossip Girl, which is shot in New York, will be ending after next season. So technically, Blake doesn’t have to stay in the city. Blake obviously wants to concentrate on her movie career, and a lot of films are shot in Vancouver these days, so moving there full-time isn’t a ridiculous concept. But the tension between Blake and Tammy came to a head during a dinner May 6 at the Reynolds family home.
“When Tammy started grilling her, Blake left the room and had a meltdown,” Star‘s source says. “She told Ryan she wanted to stay at a hotel for the rest of the trip.”
Blake had cooled down enough to have dinner with Ryan, his brother and sister-in-law the next day, “but she made it clear to Ryan that Tammy was not welcome.” And the feeling is mutual: “Tammy says it proves she’s right: Blake’s a diva. Ryan is torn between themÂ—and in an impossible position,” the source tells Star.
What is it with Blake dating mama’s boys? First Leonardo DiCaprio, now Ryan! Tammy definitely has valid points about Blake and Ryan moving too fast and actresses putting their careers first, and it’s natural that she would be concerned about the safety of her grandchildren (although she needs to stop with the nagging about moving to Vancouver). But if there’s any accuracy to this report at alÂ—and knowing Star, there’s probably notÂ—Tammy also sounds like she could potentially be a huge headache as a meddling mother-in-law. Blake’s only “24” (cough) and she’s gorgeous. She doesn’t have to settle down yet. If Ryan, who’s 35, can’t stand up to his mom, maybe Blake should weigh her options. It’s not like she’d have a problem finding a new boyfriend!
What do you think? Do Blake Lively and Tammy Reynolds hate each other? Should Ryan Reynolds tell his mom to butt out? Sound off in the comments!
