Where Are They Now?

Where Are They Now?

Pregnant man

Thomas Beatie, the transgendered man who made headlines for birthing a child in 2007, now lives in Arizona where he filed for divorce from his wife this year. He has a total of three kids, but he recently told tabloids he’d like to have more kids with his new girlfriend.

Balloon man

This past July, Kent Couch and co-pilot, Fareed Lafta, flew thirty miles of the 500 they hoped to cover while sitting in lawn chairs propelled by helium-filled balloons. The daring duo landed safely, and Couch still runs a Shell gas station in Bend—with 30 microbrews on tap. He hopes to return to the air.

Portlandia

The sketch comedy series starring Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein has produced two seasons with at least one more in the bag. Season three includes appearances from actor Chloë Sevigny as Fred and Carrie’s roommate.

Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

The Indian spiritual leader who turned the “Big Muddy Ranch” near Antelope into an armed commune also gained notoriety for being charged with an array of felonies and amassing a large collection of Rolls-Royces. He was deported in 1985 and died in India in 1990.

Tonya Harding

The figure skater, best known in connection with an attack on competitor Nancy Kerrigan in 1994, has tried her hand at everything from acting to boxing in the interim. Today she lives in Sisters with her third husband, Joe Price, and their one-year-old son.
