Jump One, Jump Twosday #14: Springsteen's Ladies

When will this obsession with all things Springsteen end? That would be never. However, this will mark the last Bruce-related Jump One, Jump Twosday. I mean, come on, what could I do next? Choose between his mailman and his garbage man?

Same rules as always apply. I give you two choices. You choose one to jump. Base it on any reason you want – base or otherwise.

Jump One is Wife #1,
Julianne Philips. They were married nearly four years, although they separated after just a couple of years. I was one of the many fans who mourned when I heard he was getting married to her. And, no, it’s not as if I thought I had a chance. It just seemed like a model-slash-actress was not the right woman for him. Her most famous acting role is likely the TV show Sisters. I recall the rumor mill saying she got $50 million or some such nonsense for her trouble. Hell, I’d sleep with just about anyone for that amount of cash. [Yeah, yeah, we’ve established what I am. It’s now a question of price.]

Jump Two is Wife #2,
Patti Scialfa. This red-headed backup singer came from the same background as Bruce. She joined the band for the Born in the U.S.A. tour, and it was on the tour for Tunnel of Love that she and Bruce were caught on the balcony in a European city. In just their skivvies. They’ve been together ever since, marrying in 1991. They have three children together. She’s a singer in her own right. [Okay, maybe not in her own right, but she’s put out plenty of albums.]

So, who’s it going to be? Jump One?
Springsteen's Julianne
Or Jump Two?
Springsteen's Patti
All right, all right, all right. Too easy. I love Patti. I love their love story. I love that they’re still together. I love that she’s still sexy. I love the energy the two have together. Give me a red-headed woman over an airbrushed, frou-frou haired woman any time.

Are you going to play?

I'm going with Patti (as I stated last week).

Julianne's got this odd jowly look going on. Her neck looks like she was made to play a Cardassian on Deep Space Nine.

Does $50 million buy your service once a la Demi Moore? Damn, you must be GOOD. Or at least good at being BAD!

Wife number 2, all the way.

Wife number 1 is way too painted-up. You just know she's gonna look like hell after even the mildest of sex romps.

Wife number 2 sports a permanent post-coital-like coiffure. You can tell she doesn't mind getting messy. My kind of lady.

Yea for red-headed women! I'll stick with Patti since she's one of my own kind.

Jillie Bean (AKA Bubba's Sis) said...

I'll go for Patti, too. She's sexier. Less uptight.

Gina said...

Number two, for sure. said...

Wife number two! That was educational. I love Bruce but you know, I didn't know anything about his wifes? I guess I blocked them out somewhere along the way. That was fun, as usual~

I actually wore black to school the day Bruce and Julianne got married - and I was wondering why on earth he hadn't picked Patti. I guess he was wondering too.

Neil said...

Definitely Patti.

Sian said...

Hmmmn let me think, pouty painted blonde or earthy passionate red head. Gimme auburn any day of the week.

And the cardassian jibe was excellent alpha!

Patti's ugly and isn't much of a singer beyond backup. She rides Bruce's coattails and we're forced at his concerts to listen to her awful songs. So wife #1 got $20mil, big deal. She's much prettier than Patti.
