Gregg Popovich Wishes He ‘Had The Guts’ To Dye His Hair Blond
Huffington Post - about 1 year

Hill colored his hair an aggressive version of Larry Bird-blond this summer, but Monday’s game marked the first time that Popovich was lucky enough to see the new coif in person.

I’m not saying I’ll never do it; It’s just not where we are as a family,” the Mooz-lum star, 41, reveals in the August issue of Essence. However, although confident in her choices, Long isn’t oblivious to the constant scrutiny from being in the public eye. “I’ll be at home with my man, having a perfectly loving time, and I’ll see all these comments on some site about how wrong I am for not being married,” she says. “I don’t feel less loved or less loving because I’m not married.” Admitting she has “never seen a marriage work,” Long is instead focused on finally having reached “emotio ...
