Really? You havent been in Japan long. About 4 years ago she was in more commercials and on more billboards than AKB are now. There was no escape from her or Kumi Koda.

tmarie - Ebi chan is rich and famous. Rich and famous women don't generally change their names when they get married.

Anyway, if your name was Yuri Ebihara and you married a guy named Ilmari, would you change your name to Yuri Ilmari? Actually Ilmari is his Finnish middle name, his last name is Ogihara, but he doesn't go by Ogihara.

WESTERN rich and famous women don't often change their last name. I can't think of a single rich and famous Japanese woman who has. And with the way Japanese law is, she or he, will have to change their name if they have kids. From my understanding, she changed it once she got married.

And thanks for the info but well aware as I love Iimari. Ogihara is better than Ebihara, no?? But then she would have to give up her kawaaaaaaaaiiiiiiii nickname.

But then she would have to give up her kawaaaaaaaaiiiiiiii nickname.

And besides, odds on she is only going to have to go back to her maiden name before the end of next year....

Hahaha! I don't know dent, they do seem happy - which is odd for two j celebs! Perhaps because it wasn't a dekichatta!

I wonder how much one can earn from signing a contract to become a model/spokesperson for a brand like this.
