Drew Peterson Engaged to Future Ex-Wife No. 5

2008_12_17_drew.jpgWe thought nothing could shock us anymore after the Blagojevich scandal. And we were right. It comes as no surprise that Drew Peterson - still married to "missing" fourth wife Stacy Peterson - is engaged to a 23-year-old woman. Peterson confirmed the engagement with the eloquent, “I can't believe this is happening," he said. "How the f--- did this get out?" He also said the two had been dating for four months, which means she's not the 22-year-old who is not a hooker that Peterson was not getting physical with earlier this year. In case you're wondering, Peterson is still technically married to Stacy, though as we know, he's been working to remedy that (some might say since October 28, 2007).

Meanwhile, in other Drew-i-verse news, prosecutors aren't giving up the weapons charge against Peterson without a fight, having recently filed an appeal to Judge Richard Schoenstedt's November dismissal of the charges.
