Kyoko Kano says she refused marriage proposal from British guy

30 Comments

Celebrity Kyoko Kano, 46, says she said no to a marriage proposal from British guy last year because "the British pound was cheaper against yen." Translation: the guy wasn't rich enough. Speaking at a promotional event for American cosmetic brand “Love & Hate,” in which she collaborated, Kano recommended the products for a Valentine's Day present.

Getting back to her recent love life, Kano said the British man proposed at the end of last year. “I didn't give him a definite no. I have to see how the yen-pound rate goes this year.”

Is that British guy crazy?

He must have had some kind of mental illness to even consider her.

There's more than one kind of proposal, maybe the guy was not proposing marrage but propositioning her, which would have the money part of the story make more sense. It does not say where the proposal took place so there is a good chance the guy might have been on some awareness numbing recreational pharmaceuticals at the time.

What happened to her face on this photo ? Is she promoting the DVD release of Nip/Tuck Season 4 ?

Everyone in Japan who can be bothered to check (admittedly not a lot of people) know Kano shimai are made-for-TV characters and not real people (they are two B-level "actresses" who knock off Dewi fujin) and that pretty much everything they say is a work in the same way that pro wrestling is a work. And yet the Japanese media reports the things they say with a completely straight face. I guess some would call it being "respectful" but others would just call it terrible journalism.

"because the British pound was cheaper against the yen"

Well, that's as good a reason as any to refuse marriage!

"American cosmetic brand Love & Hate... Kano recommended the products for a Valentine's Day present"

Har! Hey, Valentine's Day is coming soon! Can't wait for all the chocolates!

Because of the GBP vs JPY exchange rate? She just proved that she is a gold digger. A medically enhanced gold digger, but a gold digger.

That brit guy should remove his glove and show her the pimp hand. LOL

If Kyoko Kano gets someone to marry her (and why would she want to), we will all know why. Speaking of prostitutes...

The guy was probably in a drunken stupor when he asked and when he woke up the next day he and remembered what he said he thought, "Oh jeez, she refused me? Oh boy was I lucky".

The difference -- the pound won't always be a depreciating asset.

Kano, on the other hand . . .

firstly, he has to be a blind man to proposition kyoko kano, as medievil times wrote in his little piece, she's a dude based on all her photos! she brings new meaning to the arosmith song dude looks like a lady!

secondly, he's a lucky man! Let no man dare say there is no god, for that British man has been rescued from a life of misery were he to marry kyoko kano!

Coming from one of the Kano sisters who claims that they haven't had any plastic surgery, they date foriegn movie stars, they play chess with a board of naked foriegn guys, the spend thier days driving around Tokyo picking up foriegn guys and on and on. Vanity insanity at it's best.

Don't believe her. Those Ceylons mess with your mind.

That's about as a$$enine as choosing a mate based on their zodiac sign.

As shaggy once said, "It wasn't me!"

i cant believe JT used the word "guy" in the headline. its very unprofessional journalism. they might as well used "british bloke", "punter", or "d00d".

i doubt any sane man would offer to buy into that. Yes, they can rent short term for a few hours or days, but its like a ride in disneyland. been there done that. her sister is still holding up much better.

Bahahahaha!!! That is hilarious!!!

Never heard of them. Why would a cosmetic brand want someone like Kyoko Kano promoting their products? She's frighteningly unattractive.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

She's got a point there. The pound has been going down faster than the zim dollar
