Superstar Ken featured a dimpled smile, a head that could swivel, bent arms, a more muscular physique, jewelry, and underwear permanently molded to his body.
The woman who made the Ken doll made it to resemble her husband.
As confirmed by race-car driver Danica Patrick Monday, she and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers are officially dating.
Patrick acknowledged to the Associated Press: “Yes, Aaron and I are dating,” Rodgers and Patrick were first linked over the holidays when they reportedly had dinner together after Christmas at Rodgers’ favorite restaurant in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
In February, 2004, Mattel announced a split for Ken and Barbie, with Russell Arons, vice president of marketing at Mattel, saying that Barbie and Ken "feel it's time to spend some quality time – apart...
Like other celebrity couples, their Hollywood romance has come to an end", though Arons indicated that the duo would "remain friends".
Similar to his female counterpart, Ken has a fashionable line of clothing and accessories.
In the Barbie mythos, Ken met Barbie on the set of a TV commercial in 1961, although Mattel has never specified the precise nature of their relationship.
The website also claimed that Rodgers had already flown to Indianapolis to meet Patrick’s parents, and then paid for Patrick’s parents to fly with them to Patrick’s home in Scottsdale, Arizona. Both Rodgers’ older brother Luke Rodgers, who lives near Nashville, and his younger brother Jordan Rodgers posted photos of the Rodgers family festivities.Aaron’s absence fueled ongoing speculation that he is still estranged from his family.This estrangement would have some bearing on if and when the NFL star introduces Danica to his family.The sports gossip blog Terez Owens, citing an eyewitness report from Chives Restaurant in the village of Suamico, said that Rodgers, 34, and the NASCAR driver, 35, “were all over each other, kissing and couldn’t seem to keep their hands off each other.” But as the blog said: “This is on the extreme down low, as they both want to keep this quiet for now.It’s early, but they are really hitting it off.” But a subsequent report in Terez Owens held that Patrick’s brewing romance with Rodgers is the reason that she broke up with her longtime boyfriend and NASCAR colleague Ricky Stenhouse Jr., late last year.“When he got together with Olivia Munn, his family told him they didn’t trust her and thought she wasn’t with him for the right reasons,” a source told Us Weekly.
