Patrick Dempsey: The Younger Years

by 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!

I wanna bounce up on it!!!!




Patrick Dempsey has been in many movies...but ONE OF THE GUYS is not one of them. However, the perv in that movie was cute too. In my eyes, he does not compare to Patrick. I also could not believe that he was married to that lady. But i can't put him down for being with her. I can only put him down for not waiting around for me.


Holy shiznit I thought that woman was his mother till i read the article. Yikes, what was she, 30 yrs older than him???


Apparently he got into a fight with christian slater more than once on the set of mobsters and broke his nose. He then needed re constructive surgery to fix it. It wasn't voluntary. I'm so in love with PD its insane. hehe.


Did Patrick play in a movie callled "One of the guys" in the movie his sister pretended to be a guy in order to become the high school newspaper editor. Patrick was the younger brother rfilled with hormoines.


Love Patrick Dempsey!!! I first saw him in "Can't Buy Me Love"...which kicked butt!! He has come a long way ...and looks amazing=]


He married her? Yukkk!!!


Sorry, I prefer the old school Patrick...
