Ben Roethlisberger Plans Wedding

Ben Roethlisberger speaks for the first time about his upcoming wedding to Ashley Harlan. It's hard not to feel cynical about this, like it was all scripted by a PR company to remake Roethlisberger's image after he was accused of sexual assault. But hey, whatever. It's his life. For the curious among you:

"We were kind of on and off for five years -- almost six years now -- so I've known her for a while. It's not like a random new person. We dated awhile ago; we have been friends ever since."

Mr. Roethlisberger said he was determined to not only change his image but also change his ways since he was publicly humiliated -- but never charged -- after a female college student claimed he sexually assaulted her in a Georgia bar 13 months ago.

That these two dated before something sleazy happened in a Georgia nightclub bathroom kind of boggles the mind, but again, it's their lives. I won't judge.
