4 Celebrity Couples Got Married This Weekend

This past weekend was a tad strange because there must have been some deal on wedding favors or something because the celebrities ran to the altar to hitch the wagon in droves.  Among them were;

Martin Lawrence and Shamicka Gibbs

Martin Lawrence, 45 tied the knot with longtime girlfriend Shamicka Gibbs, 35, this weekend. This couple has been together for over a decade which is amazing. Considering that Martin has been in tough relationships before, it was probably a very scary move for him. The couple decided to hold the ceremony in his backyard and in attendance were some very notable guests such as Eddie Murphy, Denzel Washington and others. The couples 3 daughters were all flower girls including 9 year old Amara, 7 year old Iyana and 14 year old Jasmine from Lawrence’s previous marriage.  They kept it very intimate and held the reception on the Beverly Hills property as well.

John Krasinski and Emily Blunt

In a much more extravagant wedding, John Krasinski (from The Office), 30, and Emily Blunt (from The Devil Wears Prada), 27, exchanged vows in Villa D’este in Como, Italy. The bride adorned a 3 carat Edwardian and platinum diamond ring that costs somewhere in the vicinity of $100,000. According to UsMagazine, she wore a “cream, chiffon, sweetheart-draped Marchesa gown with embroidered detail.” Unlike the Lawrence’s above, this couple have only known each other since 2008, but they’ve been a couple ever since. They have apparently been holed up in George Clooney’s villa in Italy since the 4th of July weekend getting all of the arrangements together. George and John shared the screen in Leatherheads and he was also in attendance at the wedding with his girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis. John noted that the wedding on The Office was a great way to have a practice run through of the real thing.

Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher

Top 40 Grammy winning country megastar Carrie Underwood, 27, said “I Do” to Ottawa Senators hockey player Mike Fisher, 30, in a ceremony in Greensboro, Georgia.  The event that apparently cost somewhere in the vicinity of a half a million dollars took place under a lakeside tent. Probably doesn’t matter though since People magazine was rumored to have paid $2 million dollars to have exclusive access to the event. Guess we know what the next cover will be for People magazine. The wedding took place in Greensboro, GA at Reynolds Plantation. Carrie was said to have worn a Chantilly lace Monique Lhuillier gown and Monique also designed the bridesmaid dresses as well.  The couple was spotted at LAX for their honeymoon that is to take place in Bora Bora and Tahiti.

Carmelo Anthony and LaLa Vazquez

The names may not be familiar to some, but sports fans definitely know Carmelo Anthony,26, as one of the many stars from the Denver Nuggets. LaLa Vasquez, 31, has been in many film and TV roles including Soul Plane and You Got Served, but was also on many TV shows like Charm School with Ricki Lake, Flava Of Love, I Love New York 2, etc.  Yeah, those shows.  The wedding took place in Manhattan and was heavily attended by many NBA players including LeBron James who was boo’ed when he arrived.   But the stars were out as also in attendance were Justin Timberlake, Spike Lee, Kim Kardashian (with hubbie Lamar Odom), Serena Williams, Ludacris and many others.  According to CBS News, the wedding “featured towering marble columns and chandeliers, and was decorated using red tablecloths, centerpieces of red Ecuadorian roses, hundreds of candles and thousands of red roses hanging from the high ceiling.”  And if that doesn’t seem over the top, the couple, who have been engaged since 2004, sent out red and gold invitations that were decorated with Swarovski crystals and delivered in a black box featuring their initials. Good God.

Which wedding would you like to have been at?

Mark Wahlberg Gets Married

rhea-durham-mark-wahlbergWell, sorry ladies, it finally happened.  Mark Wahlberg and baby momma, Rhea Durham have tied the knot this past Saturday.  The couple has been together forever and have 3 kids – Ella Rae, 5, Michael, 3, and 10-month-old Brendan Joseph.

They were married in a quiet romantic wedding ceremony with only 12 of their closest friends and family and their kids.  The event took place in Beverly Hills at Good Shepherd Catholic Church.  As for wanting more kids, Mark was quick to point out that he was the youngest of nine and that the number of kids is only limited by “however many Mom wants to have.”

Top 5 Celebrity Wedding Rumors

Of course, Mr. Christopher at it again with some wedding rumors that I’m seeing floating around on the web this month and here are the most popular.  Well, they sound ridiculous, but some are actually true and some we just have to assume are true because the celebs aren’t denying it.  Well, you decide.  It’s something fun to do instead of wedding planning.

Rumor 1
LeAnn Rimes is Having an Affair with her Northern Lights Co Star

leann-rimes-eddie-cibrian-affair-northern-lights-lifetimeRumors started flying when a restaurant camera caught country singer/actress LeAnn Rimes holding hands and kissing Northern Lights co-star Eddie Cibrian.  Eddie Cibrian quickly (2 days later quickly) denied the rumor saying, “It is a fabricated story that is using random snapshots as connective tissue to create a scandalous relationship”.   Unfortunately, the cover was blown because LeAnn personally posted on her website, “This is a difficult time for me and my loved ones, but I appreciate all your continued support,” she writes. “I would like to assure all of you that this is a place for you to hear things directly from me and as you all know, not everything in our lives is always black and white.”  That is definitely not a “No, it didn’t happen”.   So Cibrian and Rimes will need to get their story straight and go into damage control, but we’re going to say that:

This Rumor is: True. And will just get juicier and juicier.  Unfortunate. But Juicy.  So juicy that we dedicated a blog post to it.

Rumor 2
nick-cannon-mariah-careyNick Cannon is Going Broke Paying for Mariah Carey’s Ring

This rumor started as reports started surfacing that the jeweler that sold Nick Mariah’s wedding ring was not getting the payments remaining on her ring which carries a balance of around $500,000.  MTV broke the report stating that bloggers were spreading the rumor which prompted Nick to defend himself on his own blog against the allegations that Mariah’s rock was financially devastating the actor/comedian.  Nick fired back, “it was this craziness on the oh so credible, BOSSIP about me being broke and being sued by my jeweler! Ridiculous! I just got like 3 new major multi-million dollar deals in the last 2 months. And I ain’t even finish yet… But now I’m broke, okay!”  So basically, even for all of his continued rambling, he never denies that he owes the jeweler money.  It’s the amount that appears to be under denial and apparently, even under Nick’s admission, the rumors are too low.  “First off, I wish my wife’s ring did only cost $500,000, that would have been a deal!“, Nick alleges.  It just seems to me that with as much money as Cannon has made, he should be set for life now, but I guess you continue to live beyond your means.  Silly celebs.

This Rumor is: True. Although details on the actual amount are sketchy.

Bruce Willis and model Emma Hemin Are Getting Married
This Week
Well, one thing is for sure. We’ll know the truth to this rumor in less than a week.  What sparked this rumor is that his ex Demi Moore and her hubby Ashton Kutcher flew into the island of Turks & Caicos where Willis has a home.  The rumor is that they are having a private ceremony with only close friends and family.  What further adds fuel to that rumor is the large block of rooms and villas that have been booked by Willis for friends.  The only thing that could possibly derail this rumor is the fact that Bruce’s 54th birthday is also coming up.  But 54 is pretty much a lame number, so that seems overkill for a 54th party.  Maybe a 60 or a 55, but not 54.  We’ll buy into this possibility that this is going down as rumored, but we’ll just say that…

This Rumor is: True. Update! This update comes now AFTER the wedding has already happened.  Ah, don’t you love it when we’re right? They are hitched.

bruce-willis-emma-hemingRumor 4
Chris Brown and Rihanna Will Be Getting Married
chris-brown-rihannaGod help us all if this is true, but we’re sure that it’s not.  Chris Brown’s PR people have been in major damage control mode since the incident with him and Rihanna when photos of Rihanna surfaced from LAPD showing her badly beaten and bruised supposedly at the hands of Chris Brown.  Chris Brown never said that he caused the bruises and contusions, but he definitely never denied it.  Since then the two have been seen at P Diddy’s house jet skiing in Miami and Rihanna is now out and about on the town getting her groove on now that her scars are healed.  As for where this rumor started, we’re going to cry foul on this trashy rumor because first, battered women around the world would go nuts if Rihanna married Chris and she knows it.  Secondly and again, Chris Brown is still in damage control and experiencing atrocious record sales that have dipped to about 10% of what he was originally selling.  People don’t even want to be seen buying his music and for good reason.

This Rumor is: FALSE. No way in Hades is this going to happen within the next 5 years.  Everything is still way too raw and even if they did decide to hitch the wagon, their PR reps would have a conniption fit and it would spell utter doom to their professional careers to the tune of Whitney and Bobby.  Those silly Browns.

bruce-willis-emma-hemingbritney-spears-kevin-federlineRumor 5
Britney Spears and Kevin Federline Are Getting Back Together
The rumor came to fruition as Kevin agreed to let their children go on tour with Britney as a result of Britney staying clean thanks to a court order keeping those old manager sleazebags away from her.  She’s looking great, getting back to her old self and appears to be on the right track to recovery.  But during the visitation swaps, sources say that Kevin and Britney have been very flirty and there has even been kissing going on.  An insider says that they never really fell out of love and that Kevin is even gushing to his mother that she’s back to the old Britney that he fell in love with.   That being the case, we’ll have to say that….

This Rumor is: In a “Could Become True” Mode. Let’s face it.  The two lovebirds have children together and the real fallout came from Britney’s drug use and bizarre behavior. Now that that is a thing of the past, there could very well be a reuniting of these two.  Although the press has had a field day with Kevin, he has proven that he is way beyond just a “baby daddy”.
