A picture speaks a thousand words, and the joke this time happens to be on Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker.

"That broad don't got nothin' on you. Travis downgraded big time," an Instagram user wrote on Shanna's latest post, which got a like from the mother-of-three. Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker made their relationship Instagram official on Tuesday, February 16.
Who is Shanna Moakler?
Shanna Moakler is is an American model, actress and reality television star, who won the Miss New York USA pageant in 1995 and was the first runner-up at Miss USA the same year, when the winner, Chelsi Smith, became Miss Universe. Moakler, who is of German, Portuguese and Irish descent, began modeling at the age of 15 and was later chosen as a Playmate of the Month for Playboy magazine in December 2001.
She started her television career in 1996 with appearances on 'Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman', Due South' and NBC movie of the week 'Til the End', also starring Shannen Doherty. In 1998, she appeared in an episode of 'Timecop' playing the role of Allison Kendall, and became a regular on the television police drama 'Pacific Blue'.
She dated British musician Billy Idol in 1997, and the couple appeared in a scene together in the Adam Sandler-Drew Barrymore romcom 'The Wedding Singer'. She dated boxer Oscar De La Hoya in October 1997, with whom she had a daughter. The relationship abruptly ended in 2000 when the actor saw De La Hoya escorting another woman to the Latin Grammy Awards, when she was at home watching the show on television.
She also dated actor Dennis Quaid and Hells Angels biker Bryan Sollima. Moakler married Travis Barker, drummer for the bands Blink-182, +44, Box Car Racer and The Transplants and formerly of The Aquabats, when Barker proposed to her in the elevator entrance to the Haunted Mansion ride at Disneyland. The couple married in 2004 and have two children together: a son, Landon Asher Barker, and a daughter, Alabama Luella Barker.
Barker filed for divorce in August 2006. Moakler was devastated by the end of their marriage. Eventually, reports that Barker was seeing Paris Hilton began to circulate, leading to a confrontation between Moakler and Hilton in a Los Angeles nightclub Hyde Lounge, where they accused each other of battery.
Following the divorce, Moakler and Barker were in an on and off relationship, spending romantic dinners and throwing parties for each other. The couple are now co-parenting their two children.
