Jerramy Stevens Arrested For Domestic Assault On Supposed Wedding Day With Hope Solo

Jerramy Stevens Arrested For Domestic Assault On Supposed Wedding Day With Hope SoloBefore you read what you’re about to read, keep in mind that former NFL tight end Jerramy Stevens and American soccer star Hope Solo were planning to get married today, and according to one report, they still intend to do so. Reports first came out on Tuesday afternoon from Chris Daniels of Seattle TV station KING-5, indicating that Stevens, who played in the NFL from 2002 through 2010, was arrested and charged.

‘Laceration on her elbow’

A few minutes after those reports, Daniels then said that a judge in Kirkland, Wa. court found no probable cause to hold Stevens, and he was released. According to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Marcus Solo was the one who called Kirkland police, and when police came to the scene, he had blood on his forehead and knees, and a bruised eye. Hope solo then emerged from the house, intoxicated and with a laceration on her elbow. She did not cooperate with police and told her brother not to say anything.

‘Fourth-degree assault’

When police swept the house, they found eight intoxicated people, a woman in the kitchen with a hip injury, and Stevens on the floor of an upstairs bedroom, claiming that he was sleeping, not hiding. Stevens had blood on his cheek and his shirt. He admitted that he had been arguing with Solo, and since police have to make an arrest when there is a domestic violence call, Stevens was arrested and charged with fourth-degree assault.

We’re not sure how YOUR wedding day went, but it probably (hopefully) didn’t look anything like this. Stevens was out of the NFL after the 2010 season, but trouble seems to follow him wherever he goes. In that sense, Tuesday’s bit of insanity came as no surprise.

Do you think Hope Solo and Jerramy Stevens will have a “happily ever after” despite this domestic call? If you were in her shoes, what will you do?

Bride Adapts Nose-Tube Diet as Wedding Preparation

There was a time when brides prepped with a spa day and professional makeup and hair styling; now, according to a report by the New York Times, they are turning to extended juice fasts and radical weight loss plans such as the K-E Diet which involves being administered a mere 800 calories a day through a tube that runs from the nose through the esophagus and into the stomach.

Like marked-up wedding dresses and exorbitant caterers, it all comes with a hefty price tag. But Jessica Schnaider, 41, of Surfside Florida, stuck with the K-E diet, for a cost of $1,500 for 10 days, in order to slim down for her June wedding. Her weight loss guru, Dr. Oliver R. Di Pietro explains that the tube administers a solution of protein and fat, but no carbohydrates. This puts the body into a state of ketosis, which can lead to quick weight loss because it starts burning fat instead of sugars (carbohydrates) for energy. Nose tube diets promise to help you lose as many as 20 pounds in less than two weeks.

While Schneider and other brides-to-be who engage in extreme weight loss plans often do shed pounds prior to their wedding day, critics warn that crash diets can cause side effects such as kidney stones, headaches, dizziness, vitamin deficiencies, and dehydration. They can also lead to weight cycling—when you gain back more pounds than you lost.

Like marriage, achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is a marathon, not a sprint. Its no surprise brides want to look gorgeous on their wedding day, but being skinny for photographs certainly won’t prevent a divorce.

What do you think of the K-E Diet? Would you be willing to go through it to prepare for your own wedding?
