Maybe it’s just me, but I always thought the point of impersonating someone was because they are really, really cool. Yet a dentist from New York has allegedly chosen to imitate Jon Gosselin by wearing Ed Hardy t-shirts and smoking like a chimney. The dude has been hitting up clubs all over Atlantic City and is using his bogus celeb status to score with the ladies. I’m a little upset, not because the guy is rumored to be unbalanced, but because the only thing worse than one Jon Gosselin is two. [RadarOnline.com]

What if Katie Holmes posted homemade videos about her life on YouTube and gave the world a look inside one of the more mysterious marriages in Hollywood?

If you desperately want a divorce but your significant other does not, the only logical thing to do is hire an impersonator. Clearly. A man in India brought a woman who pretended to be his wife to court, and the two said they sought a mutual divorce and were granted one immediately. Unfortunately for him, the man’s real wife found out about it, and the original divorce was suspended. Now he’s in trouble with the law and also been charged with cheating. Lying never gets you anywhere. [Reuters] Keep reading »
Although Benjamin Franklin had a hand in a lot of great American accomplishments, he never put the moves on Betsy Ross, the lady who stitched the first flag — that is, until now. Philadelphiaâ€™s favorite Benjamin Franklin impersonator, Ralph Archbold, is engaged to the best Betsy Ross impersonator, Linda Wilde. Oddly enough, the couple met at a wedding on September 1st, the same date our forefather Franklin married his wife in 1730. The betrothed modern day Betsy and Benjamin are both widowers with an interest in history, role-playing, and costuming. My Jewish grandmother would call them bashert, but the serendipity of it all doesnâ€™t require Yiddish. Congratulations to the happy historical couple! [Santa Cruz Sentinel] Keep reading »
