When our DCG posted the news of Irish singer Sinead O’Connor’s 4th marriage, DCG presciently titled her post “Don’t worry guys, you still might have a chance…”
But I doubt even the most cynical among us could have predicted that the marriage lasted only 16 days.
Andrea Magrath reports for the Daily Mail, Dec. 27, 2011, that Sinead, 45, wrote a lengthy message on her official website after fearing the news of her split from Barry Herridge, 38, whom she had wed on December 8 in Las Vegas, was about to be leaked.
In fact, the marriage was even more fleeting than 16 days. Sinead revealed that she and Herridge actually lived together as husband and wife for just 7 days before ending their relationship on Christmas Eve.
Sinead blamed it all on the “intense pressure” placed upon Herridge “by certain people in his life, not to be involved with me.”
Now that Sinead is back on the market, FOTM will help her to spread the word by re-publishing her call for a mate which she had posted on her blog before finding Mr. Herridge:
Am in desperate need of a very sweet sex-starved man. He must be no younger than 44. Must be living in Ireland but I don’t care if he is from the planet Zog. Must not be named Brian or Nigel. Must be blind enough to think I’m gorgeous. Has to be employed.
I like me a hairy man so buffed and/or waxed need not apply. No hair gel. No hair dryer use. No hair dye. Stubble is a non-negotiable must. Any removal of stubble would be upsetting for me. No after shave. Must be very ‘snuggly’. Not just wham-bam. Must be wham-bam. Has to like his mother. Has to like his ex and or mother/s of his children. I must end now as I have a hot date with a banana.
A note of warning to all prospective suitors:
You’d better be skilled in self-defense. This is a woman who, in September of this year, threatened that she would kill the Pope “in a f***in bloodbath.”
