Interview with Michelle Mangan Damon:Michelle Mangan, now Mrs. Johnny Damon, decided to sit and chat with Globe Reporter, Bella English, about all things Damon. Well, Bostonist got to read this article and found it very entertaining. Some may recall the story about Mangan last season when she showed up in the players' wives section, sporting her 8 carat canary yellow diamond engagement ring and making some backhanded comment to Shonda Schilling about her good luck scarfs. Well, that was last year during the post-season and here she is a year later as Mrs. Johnny Damon. There have been the rumors about her being a stripper, her dating Johnny while he was still married, etc. Mangan, who only uses her married name while appearing on NESN's show, "In Style with Michelle Damon", claims that if the stripper rumor were true, she would admit it. She also says in the article that Damon was separated (and had little style, sporting Tommy Bahama boat shoes) when they started dating.
So now the world knows that Johnny's current metrosexual look is due to the new wifey. But Michelle, who claims that she will tell anyone anything, felt comfortable telling the reporter that she has never met Damon's ex-wife, despite the fact that the newlyweds take care of his two young children all the time. She also goes on to suggest that the ex-Mrs. Damon just needs to meet someone. Ouch. Bostonist never spent the $24.00 on Damon's "Idiot" book this year, but Bostonist did read enough reviews of it to know that he spilled lots of beans about his ex-wife, who wasn't happy about of it.
And there might not be any more little Damons on the way. According to Mangan, she wouldn't be upset if she didn't have kids, but Johnny has another idea. "He's been telling the whole world he's planning on knocking me up in February; that's the term he uses." How charming, huh? While some information didn't need to be shared with all Globe readers, Bostonist likes that the new Mrs. Damon has been stirring up the sidelines of the Sox games. Something needs to take the sting out of being down 0-2 in the current series against the White Sox.
