JonBenet Dad and Natalee Mom -- "Special Friends"

6/5/2007 11:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ramsey & TwittySo will Geraldo be officiating the wedding, or what?

John Ramsey and Beth Twitty -- aka the parents of JonBenet Ramsey and Natalee Holloway -- are supposedly dating, according to a FOX News report, but JonBenet's dad said yesterday that they're just "special friends" grown out of the tragedy that befell both of them. Lin Wood -- the Atlanta lawyer who represents both Ramsey and Twitty separately -- describes the pair to the AP as "friends who have a great deal of admiration for each other." Is that the sound of spin we're hearing?

The couple, according to the report, have been spotted "holding hands and kissing" in Mountain Brook, Ala. where Twitty lives. Ramsey's wife Patsy died earlier this year of cancer, and Twitty divorced her ex-husband (not Natalee's dad) last December.

Were she alive, JonBenet Ramsey would be 17 years old. Natalee, who is presumed dead after disappearing in Aruba in 2005, would be 20.

Yes, everyone has noticed Beth's new face lift. VERY easy to tell.

I know most of you have wished them well, but I just don't get it. When both she and her 2nd hubby were on TV, they came off to be very much in love, and 2nd hubby appeared to love her daughter very much. He even agreed that they would stay in Aruba as long as it takes. Apparently, that didn't happen, because they are now divorced!!! Oh well, guess love has real short patience, huh? Nevertheless, this seems to be a strange pair to me.

#72-Barbie, sometimes when a life changing event life that happens in ones lifetimes it can make or break a marriage. The stress, the pain, must have been horrible on the entire family especially Beth. I guess she changed and there marriage just couldn't survive it. Some become stronger, some don't make it. I guess the latter is true in this case. I never knew he got kicked to the curb. I don't know about the Ramsey case, apparantly Beth believe in this man. I will always wonder about the Ramseys. If he did it did Pat know the wife??? How could she have stayed with him if she knew it?? Why did he do it if he did it. I remember the case well and I know one detective took himself off the case. Not sure why. Interesting news.

The Detective that took himself off the case wrote a book saying Patsy Ramsey was guilty: JonBenet: Inside the Ramsey Murder Investigation.

Well, let's hope she has the good sense not to get into another marriage so soon after her last marriage. She needs to learn, understand, accept and grow since the loss of her daughter, not out there finding another husband!!!! Especially, not a marriage to a man with somewhat like circumstances and situations. It's like people in rehab who hook up, and once they're out, it just doesn't work. Hope they keep it as Ramsey says, "special friends".

#77 makes a good point. The rich are ABOVE the law and the ex-husband of this woman as well as her first husband were both Millionaires. American Express- "Don't enter a relationship without it."

John Ramsey actually released a statement verifying he and Beth Twitty are not dating yesterday. It's amazing how Julia Renfro and friends from Aruba contacted all of the media outlets to promote this lie, as if the lies Renfro puts out on FOX are not enough? Renfro is an ex-pat from the US that left under a cloud of suspicion and also lives a double life in Aruba, and is also best friends with the main suspect's mother? TMZ should investigate the escort services in Aruba, the high incidence of AIDS on the island as well as the drug trafficking.

No torment is enough in Renfro's eyes for the parents of Natalee Holloway to push for a boycott of Aruba. Aruba will never revive their tourist industry, give it up Renfro even though your hands are greased by the powers that be in Aruba.

If they are together I am happy they have perhaps found some happiness after so much tragedy. However I think they should be left alone. They have been through enough. They should be able to live away from the publics eye.

That is a little strange. Some people move on faster than others. He's upset how his family was treated by the media, but this will only draw more media attention! She also seems like a very cold woman. There are lots of media reports that show her in a different light. In 2005 she was mad that all the reporters dropped coverage of her daughter's case to cover hurricane Katrina. It's very sad that her daughter is missing, but how many people were MISSING during the hurricane?

Beth is a money hungry liar that used her daughters tragedy to make hundreds of thousands of dollars in a farce called the 'trust fund' Yet Beth has never spent one dime to search for Natalee. She did, however get alot of plastic surgery and cuddle up with Jon since good ole "Jug" dumped her last year.

Funny all her screeching about "gang rape and murder" in 2005 & 2006 never led to an arrest. WHY? Because there is absolutely NO evidence anything happened to Natalee. Most of America has been brainwashed by Beth and her main vehicle, Faux news into assuming the first 3 suspects of 10 arrested, are rapists and murderers. Fortunately, I've read lawsuits, police records and the like for myself and know the disgusting moves Beth has made in cashing in on her daughter's dissapearance.

So- Good luck you 2 crazy kids. & best wishes

Let the champagne cork pop....................................in the back of Jug's company car. while he was still married to wendy.

I cannot believe some of the peoples comments on this site! Here are two people whose children were MURDERED (or missing) and these people are so sick that they make these inane, demented comments about the two of them - about murdering their own children or faking their murders and even bringing John Walsh into it - who has done a world of good by assisting in capturing murderers and convicts for the past 20 years! Where do you people come from? I can tell you where you all belong! It is good to see a lot of comments, however, like this item should not even be put on this site. It is their own personal business and I, for one, am happy for the two of them. They found a common bond and they found each other. TMZ - you will print any garbage or hurt anyone for publicity - wont you?

Jesus Christ on a submarine, this is so bizarre. Some of you idiots really, really need to stop talking about "the crimes" committed against NH. Yes, a crime was very obviously committed against JBR, but NH? Come on, show were it's been proven that she was murdered or otherwise harmed. Come on, I dare you! Yes, MonKKKeys, I know you're reading. And no "she said that he said that they said that she did…" does not count and you know it.

This lady is trashy bar-hopping money grubbing liar who is idolized by a bunch of internet loonies who have a dedicated themselves to "finding justice for Natalee". BT's little group of obsessive clowns constantly go on and on about her daughter dying in the most painful, disturbing ways one can imagine. Not to mention the raging hard-on they all seem to have for Aruba.

And now she’s hooked up with this guy. Was O.J. unavailable?
