Patrick Dempsey: The Younger Years

at . Comments

We came across an old picture of Patrick Dempsey that we couldn't pass up sharing. The woman with him in this picture is Rochelle Parker, also known as Rocky Parker, Dempsey's former manager -- and wife.

The First Mrs. McDreamy

The reason pictures of the future Dr. McDreamy and Parker are circulating is that she apparently accused Dempsey of abuse during their 1992 divorce proceedings, then said she lied about it... then said the National Enquirer knew it wasn't true but ran the allegations anyway.

"I never confirmed to the Enquirer that the story... is true. To the contrary, I have previously stated that such allegations are untrue. In fact, the Enquirer offered to pay me money to confirm such allegations, which offer I refused," Parker said.

Whatever. Just take your mind off this non-story by looking at this far-superior Patrick Dempsey picture instead!

[narrating] "At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need."

MEREDITH

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."
