Welcome to the eighth edition of Diamonds in the Rough, the Special Feature that offers links to a variety of posts from the past that I think you might find interesting. They’re definitely some of my favorites, but then that’s kind of the whole idea.
Regular visitors to the GMC might recognize a few of these because we’re starting to work our way into posts that originated just two or three years ago, but maybe they’re worth a second look anyhow. Of course, the subtext here is that Diamonds in the Rough might be approaching the end. . .but we’re not quite there yet.
Read all about the teen idol’s real-life romantic interest.
