No, seriously, WHAT HAPPENED? George Clooney? Engaged to accomplished lawyer Amal Alamuddin? I know this is a blog, so you can’t actually see me right now, but there are currently sparks shooting out of my head as I scream “ERROR! ERROR! DOES NOT COMPUTE!”
“The barristers and staff of Doughty Street Chambers offer their best wishes and congratulations to Ms. Amal Alamuddin, a member of Chambers, and Mr. George Clooney on their engagement to be married,” the firm said in a statement, per Reuters. Barrister Geoffrey Robertson added, too, that Alamuddin is a “brilliant and passionate defender of human rights” who is respected by her colleagues. And Robin Jackson, chief executive of her law firm, told Reuters, “She brings a bright light to everything she is involved in, and I am so delighted at her happy news.” SOURCE
Oh, so I guess that makes more sense. She has an education, a job, beauty, brains … basically, everything that Clooney’s string of exes didn’t have. It all makes sense now I guess, right? Right?
