We recently shared what we called “one last tidbit” from our exclusive scoop on Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s vow renewal, but then we heard this bit of juicy gossip and just HAD to pass it on. Days after her Lake Como ceremony, Chrissy gave an interview to People magazine where she blabbed that she and John didn’t exchange gifts for their 10-year anniversary vow renewal but an insider says that’s NOT TRUE. In fact, the couple exchanged new rings, with Chrissy scoring a 10 carat diamond sparkler and John getting a more toned down ring. Why did Chrissy fib? As we previously reported she’s desperate to be liked again and feared blabbing about some pricey ring wasn’t appropriate, especially now with so many people in the entertainment industry on strike and struggling to make ends meet. When she returned from Italy, Chrissy attended a One Fair Wage event (photo above) to “end sub-minimum wages” for restaurant workers- not sure if she wore the ring…
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are going back to the scene of the crime – they’re renewing their vows in the same place they married 10 years ago! The couple have a lot to celebrate after a rough few years. Chrissy suffered a devastating miscarriage and was almost canceled after some of her past unkind tweets resurfaced. Chrissy and John recently welcomed another baby and decided to mark their 10 year wedding anniversary with an over-the-top celebration in Lake Como, Italy. They’ve invited HUNDREDS of their closest friends and even developed a WEBSITE with instructions for their guests – they’re sticking to a specific dress code so the website includes a montage of photos advising their guests on what to wear to each event. The good times start on Friday, September 15th, and last for three days – wrapping up on Sunday the 17th. Chrissy and John are picking up the tab for the festivities, but expect their guests to pay for their own flights and hotels. On the agenda: a cocktail party on Friday, a lavish black tie reception where they will renew their wedding vows on Saturday, and then a pool party on Sunday afternoon before everyone says arrivederci.
LOVE this photo that David Beckham posted to celebrate 24 years of marriage to Victoria Beckham. When they married, Spice Girl Victoria was the rich and famous one – David was a shy ball player. They both look SO young in this photo. Four children later, David is still devoted to his wife, in spite of the fact that she has an almost two million dollar collection of Birkin bags!
It takes all kinds. Joan Collins (age 88 – can you believe it?) had an elegant black tie party at Claridge’s Hotel in London to celebrate her 20th wedding anniversary with Percy Gibson. Among the guests were Elizabeth Hurley and her customary date, her 19 year old son Damian Hurley. Damian wore his long hair back in a ponytail with his tuxedo, and his mother wore a sexy gown as usual. He has quite a modeling career going these days – too bad he has no time for college. Simon Cowell and his fiancee Lauren Silverman were also at the event – all the other men wore tuxes, but Simon is accustomed to showing off his irresistible chest – and ignored the formal invitation.
Sofia Vergara wants the world to know that five years after she married Joe Mangeniello, she’s still madly in love with him. She posted this photo of them picnicking for their anniversary. Keep in mind, while Sofia remains as beautiful as ever, Joe’s looks HAVE considerably changed since they wed. He now has a grey beard and a royal blue mohawk! The haircut is for his role as the one-eyed assassin Deathstroke in HBO Max’s Justice League. And Wendy Williams predicted when they married: “It won’t last”…
Sarah Jessica Parker posted this sweet vintage photo for her 23rd anniversary with Matthew Broderick– she captioned it “We’ve come a long way baby.” Indeed they have. Back in 1996, before they were married, they costarred on Broadway in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Jessica and Matthew were set to costar on Broadway for the SECOND time this month in Neil Simon’s Plaza Suite. (They play three different couples in the 1960’s.) Of course, the April 13 opening was crushed by coronavirus, and now the play has been pushed back to Spring 2021. But the marriage continues…
If you’re wondering who these two people are, the guy is a wealthy Italian, Gianluca Mech, and the woman is Karen Lynn Gorney – she was John Travolta’s leading lady in Saturday Night Fever. (She famously said no to Tony Manero.) It happens to be the 40th anniversary of the movie, and Mech is a superfan, to put it mildly. He spent $200,000 to duplicate the movie’s 2001 Odyssey Disco at exactly the same location in Bay Ridge, used in the movie. It’s now a Chinese restaurant, but Mech had a special lighted dancefloor built and redecorated the place for his party. He flew in 50 friends from Italy and invited anyone in disco vintage attire to join the party. Of course he invited the cast – Travolta didn’t show up, but Karen did, and Monti Rock III was DJ.
Of all the cast members who showed up for the 25th anniversary of the movie “Goodfellas” in NYC, we were most impressed with Ray Liotta and Lorraine Bracco – they both look great and none the worse for wear. Ray, of course played gangster Henry Hill and Lorraine was his long suffering wife Karen. Ray beat out Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin and Sean Penn for his role, and Lorraine got an Oscar nomination for her performance. We loved the sound track to that movie.
This will be a busy year for Nancy Sinatra– it’s the 100th anniversary of her father Frank’s birth and all sorts of tributes and celebrations are planned. Frank was born in 1915 and died in 1998. Tours of Frank’s house in Palm Springs are already going for $250.00. Nancy is the most famous of Frank’s offspring so everybody wants her for an honored guest. She appeared at the Peter Max studio in New York this week – he displayed 47 new paintings he’s done of Sinatra.
Jessica Seinfeld posted this photo of herself and Jerry on their 15th wedding anniversary on December 25 – the whole family was on a ski vacation. Both Jerry and Jessica are urging friends to see “Nightcrawler,“ and admit they are obsessed with the movie. Jessica says the movie is “iconic” and “too good to watch only once!” It’s hard to believe Jerry is 60 already. Seems like only yesterday he was a thirty-something single guy on “Seinfeld.”
