It will never cease to amaze me how much some couples spend on their weddings. I suppose the logic is that if you have the money, why not spend it even if it’s a one day celebration of a union that has a 50 percent of failure. That divorce statistic, by the way, is scientifically exact for the celebrity couples featured in this Top 10 list of expensive celebrity weddings. They all spent $1 million or more on their big day, but only half of them are still married. Keep clicking to see how much they spent, on what exactly, and whether it was worth it.
I don’t discriminate against men of any kind. I’ve dated the disabled, the bald, the fat, the moobed—you name it, I’ve let it into my bed. Imperfections only make a dude more relatable in my eyes. All of us have “flaws” — from foot nipples to cellulite — and it would be cruel to fault another human being for his. I secretly delight in finding out that a gorgeous man is is not as perfect as he appears.
Everyone wants to look gorgeous on their wedding day, since you know that all eyes will be on you and that many albums’ worth of photos will be snapped. But very few brides probably anticipate taking a mug shot in their wedding dress and veil. This is exactly what happened to 53-year-old Tammy Lee Hinton of Michigan. She had a warrant out for her arrest for felony theft three years earlier, and so police officers used her wedding as the perfect opportunity to finally take her into custody. They did this moments after she walked down the aisle. And while the officers offered that she could change ensembles for her mug shot, she chose to stay in her wedding dress. After posting bail 30 minutes later, she headed to her reception. [Tabloid Prodigy] Now, sure, felony theft charges are a huge deal. But really, did the officers have to arrest Tammy at her wedding? I mean, there was no other opportunity? Hopefully, they at least brought a gift. In Tammy’s honor, we’re paying homage to other brides who ended up in the big house on their big day.
Surprise! Designer Cynthia Rowley got her big break thanks to Playboy. At a party over the weekend, Rowley was overheard saying that she got her very first credit in a magazine when she was a student and Playboy published a spread of a model in a sailor hat and matching skirt of her design. The only problem? She couldn’t show her parents. Luckily, after graduation, one of Rowley’s grandmothers gave her $3,000, which she used to launch her first line. Soon, she was having fashion shows in her apartment attended by the likes of Andy Warhol. [Page Six, Wikipedia]
New lovebirds Diana Agron and Sebastian Stan were photographed strolling the streets in last night’s clothes. They can’t fool us. With those silly grins and JBF hairdos, there’s no doubt they are on a walk of shame. Good for them, we hope they’re headed for brunch. [Perez Hilton] In celebration of their wild night together, we’ve rounded up some other celebrity walks of shame.
A few weeks ago, an actress friend submitted a piece to run on The Frisky. In editing the story, I asked her age, so that I could write it into the piece. “Eek!” she wrote me in a panic. “My agent has told me never to reveal my age. Can we say between 21 and 30?” Uh, no, that’s not quite how we roll here. I really thought this was an easy question—I’m 31 and have never had any qualms about revealing my age. But this incident was a good reminder that for performers, age is an extremely loaded number. Fast forward to this morning, when I saw a story about Nicki Minaj. Apparently, she claims she was born in December 1982, making her 28. But she is actually 30. MediaTakeout accused her of this last year when a reader tipped them off. And after the assault incident of last week, TMZ noticed the discrepancy on the legal documents. Which, really, you’re lying about a lousy two years? [ONTD]
I am aware that it is common practice in some households to kiss other family members on the lips. These are likely the same families that feel comfortable walking around the house naked. No judgement of these very, uh, open people, but I am of the opinion that this is creepy. And that holds true if the family members happen to be famous. Click through to see some awkward moments of famous family members caught locking lips. Warning: prepare to feel uncomfortable. Unless you are fine with this kind of thing in which case, enjoy.
Most of us recall the vague sense of pain accompanied by pining for a man who would never know we exist. Luckily, many of our crushes of yore seem much less intimidating now. We’ve come a long way since we got popcorn stuck in our braces while watching Nickelodeon. Click through to see what’s become of our ’90s teenybopper crushes. Keep reading »
Kim Kardashian has set a wedding date—August 20th. And it is going to be one of the biggest displays of extravagance we’ve seen in a long time. The word on the street is that she is hiring a fleet of Maybachs and Rolls Royces—two of the world’s most expensive cars—to bring her guests to her wedding. I’d like to criticize this, but I guess you can do such things when you have the cash just laying around, or if you know People is going to pay you $1,000,000 for the exclusive wedding photos. The way I see it, if Kimmy wants diamond confetti thrown at her on her special day, that’s her prerogative. She’s only going to get married (again) once, right? (Right?) Either way, we guess there are a lot more ridiculous things one could spend their fortune on. Click through these photos to see some of the most insane things celebrities have done with their money.

Dating is a verifiable mess these days, but oh, it was so much weirder and wilder back in ye olde times (not counting that date you went on with the “Welcome Back Kotter” obsessive). We’ve found some of the more random traditions and customs of days gone by for you to stick your smelly apples into (you’ll see what we mean in a minute)…
