Since Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian announced their engagement, there’s been one person publicly eye-rolling at the PDA-packed pair: Barker’s ex-wife Shanna Moakler.
After numerous digs on Instagram towards the couple, including posting a still of the movie True Romance—which Kardashian and Barker have been bonding over (and dressed as for Halloween)—showing Patricia Arquette pulling the fingers, Moakler has publicly spoken out about her ex-husband’s new relationship. When approached by the press over the weekend, the model and actress said she hopes the pair get “good ratings” on the Kardashian’s upcoming new reality TV series, saying the two “deserve each other.”
In a video obtained by Page Six, which shows Moakler in her car with her boyfriend Matthew Rondeau, the paparazzi ask how she feels about Barker’s new engagement. In reply, Moakler jokes, “Really, they got engaged? I haven’t heard anything about it,” clearly taking a dig at how public and extravagant the saga was.
Moakler then went on to reference the fact that Barker is going to appear in the Kardashians’ new Hulu series, subtly implying the relationship might have PR elements. “I think they’re very deserving of one another,” she said. “I hope they get good ratings.”
Moakler, who shares two children with Barker, then referenced Barker and Kardashian’s public love of the film True Romance, which she’s previously said she finds “weird” due to how much of an impact the film had on their relationship: they named their daughter, Alabama, after a character in the movie and the soundtrack played both when she walked down the aisle and for their first dance at their wedding.
“I’ve said that before. I don’t feel that that makes me bitter or jealous by just saying that’s weird,” she said. “But it is.”
Last month, after Barker and Kardashian dressed as True Romance for one of their many couple Halloween costumes, Moakler spoke out for the first time, telling Us Weekly, “What was weird is that they were posting about a movie that Travis and I basically bonded over. I called him Clarence [like] in the movie. We named our daughter after the character Alabama in the movie.”
She continued, “I walked down the aisle to “You’re So Cool” from True Romance. Our first dance at our wedding was to the love song from True Romance.”
Perhaps Scott Disick should have directed his “is this chick okay?” message to a different ex.
