Lately I've been thinking about how awkwardly silent Maria Sharapova has been about her marriage and I decided to give the topic attention in hope of getting some insider/wise reader input. It's been almost two years since Masha and Sasha Vujacic got engaged and the topic of the wedding seems to be a far away subject on their minds, or they are playing such a game for the media. The question is, could they be hiding the split, postponing the worse, or they are just private and relaxed about their wedding plans?
First of all, no recent sightings of the couple have reached the media, while before, every now and then there was some story about them. Moreover, what happened to the giant engagement ring on Sharapova's left hand? According to the sharp eye of our reader Katrin, who pitched me to dig into this issue, the ring has been missing since about the start of the summer.
That's not the only strange thing surrounding this story. Just days ago Sharapova said that the November Istanbul wedding was just a rumor:
That's not true. I'm definitely not getting married in Istanbul in November. I'm surprised anyone believed that.
However, it's suspicious that in the interview for the September 2012 issue of Hamptons magazine, Maria didn't correct the interviewer!
Hamptons: You're getting married to Sasha Vujacic, a Slovenian professional basketball player (who played for the Lakers and the Nets), on November 10 in Istanbul, Turkey. Do you see yourself one day becoming a mom?
Sharapova: For sure! My mother and I have a very close relationship, she had me when she was really young. I've missed that train, but absolutely, some day.
At the recent launch of Sugarpova, Maria's candy brand, E! interviewed the Russian and asked her about the wedding dress and she was very vague with her answer, as if she's not even thinking about marriage at this point. But once again, Sharapova is smart and she could just be distracting the media.
Just two days ago Sharapova reignited the fire by uttering the word "pregnant" while talking about her recent ultrasound for a stomach virus:
Because of the pain I was having. It was really weird. They told me I was fine, not pregnant. I'm like, 'Can I get my money back?'
All in all, I suppose that everything is still fine between her and Sasha, especially because she's mentioning the possibility of being pregnant. Their careers and schedules are very demanding, forcing them to be far apart most of the time, and I suppose we can't expect them to progress like a regular couple.
Have you noticed the absence of the ring? Why could it be? Are we just more impatient that Maria and Sasha? (photos: Lylux)
