If there’s one thing all of Bravo’s Real Housewives have in common, it’s a knack for throwing a lavish (and expensive) event.

So, it comes as no surprise that when these ladies say “I do,” their big days are over-the-top and filled with tons of luxury items.

Especially when they know that their big event is going to make it on TV screens as fans of their show watch them wed.

Throughout the years, many elaborate weddings have been shown on television screens across several of the Real Housewives’ cities.

Although some of the couples in this list didn’t stay together until death did them part, they will always have the memory of their extravagant nuptials. Here are some of the best weddings to grace Bravo history.

1. NeNe and Gregg Leakes – The Real Housewives of Atlanta

A post shared by Gregg Leakes (@greggleakes) on

In 2011, after 13 years of marriage, RHOA OG NeNe Leakes and her husband, Gregg, decided to file for divorce. Two years later, the couple found their way back to each other and decided to walk down the aisle for the second time.

The nuptials were televised during NeNe’s spinoff, I Dream of NeNe: the wedding had a total of 400 guests, per Radar Online. She also had nine bridesmaids for the wedding, including current RHOA stars Cynthia Bailey and Marlo Hampton.

To add more elegance, NeNe wore two wedding gowns for the ceremony and the reception that followed. The dresses were from luxury designers Baracci and Pnina Tornai and were worth an estimated $20,000.

2. Tamra and Eddie Judge – The Real Housewives of Orange County

After filing for divorce from her ex-husband Simon Barney in 2011, RHOC fans watched as Tamra found love again with her current husband, Eddie Judge. The couple got married in 2013 and cameras followed them every step of the way.

Their wedding was held at the Monarch Beach Resort in California, followed by a reception at the St. Regis hotel. The event had 100 guests, including most of her fellow castmates.

In addition to the chandeliers, crystal chains, and other opulent items at the wedding, Tamra insisted on having three different wedding gowns throughout the day. According to Bravo, the dresses were designed for Tamra by Mark Zunino and finished off the look with a bridal cuff, which was tailored by Diann Valentine.

3. LeeAnne Locken and Rich Emberlin – The Real Housewives of Dallas

One of the most buzzed-about weddings in Housewives history is LeeAnne Locken’s $4 million-wedding to Rich Emberlin in November 2019.

The wedding was so extravagant that Bravo had to release a statement to confirm that the network had nothing to do with funding the nuptials. Nonetheless, the wedding was something Bravo fans hadn’t seen on such a high magnitude.

The wedding was shown on RHOD shortly before LeeAnne’s shocking exit and was filled with dancing cowboys, disco ninjas, and a decked-out cathedral in Dallas. LeeAnne wore a  $1 million emerald-and-diamond tiara and a $25,000 gown.

According to Today, Although the wedding was extravagant, the housewife upset her guests by opting not to feed them during the wedding.

4. Eva Marcille and Michael Sterling – The Real Housewives of Atlanta

Former RHOA star Eva Marcille spent her first year as a full-time peach holder planning her fairytale wedding to her politician husband, Michael Sterling. The pair got married in October 2018 with a ceremony that cost $350,000.

Eva told Essence back in March 2019 that she wanted to stick to a ballroom theme that was fit for a princess. In order to achieve this, she said she implemented specific rules for her guests to abide by.

“No kids, no plus ones and no ankles,” she said.  “I wanted ballgowns and [some people] still showed up in a cocktail dress! I’m like, no, no ankles!”

In addition to having palace rules, Eva also had NeNe Leakes speak at her wedding. At the time, Eva considered NeNe to be a sister to her and said she had given her solid advice about marriage before she walked down the aisle.

5. Camille Grammer and David Meyer – The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

In 2018, RHOBH star Camille Grammer and her husband David Meyer had a destination wedding in Hawaii to exchange their vows. The gorgeous backdrop to her special day was something Camille told People she couldn’t do without. She said the destination is especially significant to her and was a perfect fit for her and David.

“Hawaii is my special place,” Camille said.  “I have so much respect for the Hawaiian culture. It’s all about ohana, family, love, respect for the land and respect for each other.”

Although RHOBH got to see parts of the wedding on the show, Camille and David only had 85 guests in attendance. The guests included fellow housewives Dorit Kemsley, Lisa Rinna, and Teddi Mellencamp. Kyle Richards was also one of Camille’s bridesmaids.

While the wedding was low-key, Camille stunned her guests in a custom Malan Breton wedding gown.

6. Danielle Staub and Marty Caffrey – The Real Housewives of New Jersey

RHONJ star Danielle Staub married her husband Marty Caffrey in a bohemian beach wedding in the Bahamas. Danielle two gorgeous wedding dresses from designer Pnina Tornai.

The dress for the ceremony was a lace, strapless wedding gown with a mermaid-style skirt. During the reception, Danielle’s friend and fellow co-star, Teresa Giudice, toasted the pair and their marriage.

Melissa Gorga and Danielle’s daughters also served as bridesmaids alongside Teresa. According to People, the couple also shared their first dance as a couple to Ed Sheeran’s 2014 hit, “Thinking Out Loud”.

Although the couple had a beautiful destination wedding, the marriage, unfortunately, didn’t last long. Marty filed for divorce just four months after they were married. Prior to her ex-husband, the Bravo star had been engaged 20 times.

7. Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker – The Real Housewives of Atlanta

Kandi and Todd decided to go all out when they got married back in 2014. Like her frenemy, NeNe Leakes, Kandi’s nuptials warranted its own spin-off: Kandi’s wedding.

The massive wedding cost $400,000 and was inspired by Eddie Murphy’s classic film Coming to America. Not only was the venue, wedding, and reception over-the-top, Kandi had several musicians and fellow reality stars for her bridal party.

Some of her bridesmaids included her Xscape bandmate, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, singer Fantasia Barrino, Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta star Rasheeda Frost, and Kandi’s former friend and current Marriage Boot Camp star, Phaedra Parks.

The wedding also had performers like Bell Biv Devoe at the reception. For her dress, Kandi rocked a $20,000 Reco Chapple gown, which had a 12-foot train. She also added Christian Louboutin’s five-inch Body Strass crystal-studded transparent stilettos to her luxurious look.

Zayn Malik And Gigi Hadid Welcome A Baby Daughter — See Her Adorably Tiny Hand

Published

By

Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid are officially parents!

Back in April, reports dropped that Hadid was pregnant, and she later confirmed it in an interview on The Tonight Show. And late Wednesday night (September 24), the pair shared the good news that Hadid had given birth to a baby daughter over the weekend.

“Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world,” Hadid wrote on Instagram to accompany a photo of a tiny hand in a little baby blanket. “So in love.”

Malik, meanwhile, mentioned being at a loss for words. “Our baby girl is here, healthy and beautiful,” he wrote. “[T]o try put into words how i am feeling right now would be an impossible task. The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, and thankful for the life we will have together x.”

His photo, too, captures the impossibly small measure of her hand gripping his much larger, and much more tattooed one.

It’s the first child for both Malik, 27, and Hadid, 25. The pair have been together on and off since 2015, when they reportedly met on the set of his steamy “Pillowtalk” video.

That song officially kicked off Malik’s solo career in early 2016, not quite a year after his departure from One Direction; two years later, his song “Let Me” was written about his relationship with Hadid. “And if you let me be your man / Then I’ll take care of you,” he sings on the track, “for the rest of my life / For the rest of yours.”

And speaking of music, early Thursday morning (September 25), Malik also shared that his new single “Better” will be out on Friday — complete with a fan art-recalling single cover that positions him as a Gundam warrior with red hair and pointy elven ears.

Read the new parents’ sweet messages above. Congrats to them!

Who Is the Giraffe on ‘The Masked Singer’ Season 4?

Published

on

By

The Masked Singer is back and in the words of Jessie Spano from Saved by the Bell: I’m so excited, I’m so excited, I’m so….scared. This season we’re being introduced to a new fleet of “celebrities,” all of whom a) need to fire their agents immediately, and b) have been forced to climb inside various clearly possessed costumes, including the Popcorn, the Giraffe (we’ll be discussing him here today, shudder) and this absolutely horrifying entity called “Baby Alien.” Quick, shield your eyes:

Giphy

The sooner we can figure out which celebs are trapped inside these monstrosities the better, and the time has come to figure out who’s lurking in the Giraffe. Fortunately, The Masked Singer has barely started and fans already have some solid theories, so let’s hold hands, form a quick prayer circle, and jump in.

The Clue Package(s)

Get this: The Giraffe’s first clue package has been deleted by The Masked Singer’s YouTube channel. WHAT AE THEY TRYING TO HIDE?! Fortunately for you, I watched all 37 seconds before they were scrubbed from the internet and can confidently say there are two (2) things to note:

  1. The Secret Service-style entrance implies this celeb has a beefed-up security team.
  2. The outfit implies it’s someone ~royal~ (PRINCE HARRY, THAT YOU?).
    1. Which brings us to clue package #2:

      This content is imported from YouTube. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

      The second clue package is a bit longer, clocking in at 1:02, and offers a little more info:

      1. We get a reference to a carnival, complete with balloons.
      2. The Giraffe notes that he’s had a “roller coaster career.”
      3. Music is in his blood, which could mean he comes from a famous family?
      4. He became the butt of everyone’s jokes when he took a giant risk.
      5. There’s a $3 sign, which seems significant?
        1. The Theories

          Jonathan Groff

          This content is imported from Instagram. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

          To quote this random person on YouTube: “I’M GETTING HAMILTON VIBESSS DKBDKSJF I CAN’T WAIT.”

          For reasons that remain mysterious, literally everyone in the YouTube comments thinks the Giraffe is a Hamilton star, and based on the costume, there’s some speculation that it’s Jonathan Groff, who played King George in the musical. (You might also recognize him from Mindhunter…or maybe you’re more a Kristoff-in-Frozen type a gal.)

          Anthony Ramos

          This content is imported from Instagram. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

          Another possibility is Anthony Ramos, who not only starred in Hamilton, but, as one fan points out, he’s also in the upcoming In the Heights movie. Perhaps the Giraffe costume is a play on “height?!” Innnnnteresting.

          Lin-Manuel Miranda

          Nicholas HuntGetty Images

          Truly praying for the people who have convinced themselves that Lin-Manuel Miranda would make time to be on this show, but enough fans are speculating that begrudgingly I feel obligated to include his name on this list.

          Fred Durst

          Patrick FordGetty Images

          Some fans are pointing to the $3 sign as a reference to Limp Bizkit’s song “Three Dollar Bill, Y’all.” But wait, there’s more! Fred also directed John Travolta in The Fanatic, a movie that earned just $3,153 in its opening weekend. Pretty sure that counts as sticking your neck out and ending up in “knots.”

          This content is imported from {embed-name}. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

          Hugh Jackman

          This content is imported from Instagram. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

          Some fans are getting Greatest Showman vibes from the Giraffe, but guys. There is no way Hugh Jackman’s agents would let him do this to his career!!!! I hope. Then again, who knows. 2020 has been weird.

          Vanilla Ice

          This content is imported from Instagram. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

          This theory specifically comes from the Giraffe’s curious performance of “Let’s Get It Started” by The Black Eyed Peas. Apparently people recognized his voice, but due to having no memory of what Vanilla Ice sounds like, I can’t officially weigh in.

          This content is imported from YouTube. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

          On top of that, commenters are pointing out that Vanilla Ice was raised near Paris, Texas (hence the outfit vibes), and that he’s won three motor-cross championships. Plus, the rollercoaster in Clue Package #2 could be a reference to his song “Roll Em Up.”

          This content is imported from {embed-name}. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

          We’ll be updating these theories as the show progresses, but until then I’ll leave you with this:
