Couple Gets Married on a Southwest Airlines Flight: WATCH!

A couple decided that there was no place they'd rather get married than on an airplane.

Not a private plane. Not a plane on the ground. Just a regular, commercial aircraft full of other passengers.

It's a strange story, but very touching, especially when you see how much everyone else played along. Take a look:

"Airplane wedding" might sound like the premise of some god-awful romantic comedy (not all of them are, but this one would be).

Seeing it play out in real life, on the other hand, shows that it can be pretty sweet.

Michael and Renee used the airplane aisle as their, well, aisle. Renee walked towards Michael while Ed Sheeran's "Perfect" played, because of course.

The pilot of the Southwest flight addressed the entire plane over the intercom, saying:

"They met each other four years ago," the pilot announced. "And this weekend decided to make it at least another four years,"

Everybody's a comedian.

"They met on a date," the pilot also shared. "And yes, ladies and gentleman, it really does work."

"They were in beautiful Baltimore when they met," the pilot added. "And it’s happily ever after from there."

Their vows were appropriately tongue-in-cheek under the circumstances.

"I, Michael, take you, Renee, to be my wife, my partner in life, and my travel companion when I become a Rapid Reward Member today, tomorrow and forever."

That's very cute.

(They danced down the aisle to Chris Brown's "Forever," which is gross, but it's inclear whether they or a passanger chose that music)

Skylee Campbell was one of the many passengers who captured this precious moment on video.

"Can’t think of a better way to spend a late-night, 5 hour flight," Skylee wrote. "Other than watching a wedding happen on the plane!"

It makes sense that the airlines are happy to oblige.

First of all, it gives flight attendants and pilots a break from, you know, the mundane agony of just doing their jobs like they do on every other flight.

Second of all, it gives new, free good press for the airline. Do you know how rare that is, these days?

How many videos have we all seen of people getting dragged off of airplanes?

Earlier this month, there were overlapping horror stories from airplanes. One was of a man removed for his foul body odor.

Another was of a man who, according to the woman who was seated beside him, was allegedly masturbating during the flight.

So, yes, a heartwarming story that takes place on an airplane is clearly welcome. From their perspective.

There are ethical concerns to getting marred in a plane in this manner.

The ceremony is sweet, sure. But … the passengers didn't sign up for this.

These two were effectively tying the knot in front of a captive audience who, rather than being invited to a wedding ceremony between strangers, found themselves immersed in it against their will.

Sometimes public proposals happen like this, but it usually only monopolizes a minute or two of people's time.

This was a whole wedding ceremony, and the captain was speaking over the intercom. That's not exactly easy to avoid.

On top of that … imagine having to go to the bathroom while on the flight. That's an unpleasant prospect at any point, because the process of flying is an exercise in misery.

But interrupting a wedding that you never asked to attend adds extra unpleasantness to being squeezed into a small nightmare bathroom while hurtling through the clouds in a metal tube.

Still … we haven't actually heard any complaints.

Southwest 02

The flight crew reportedly had all of the passengers activate their overhead lights to illuminate the aisle.

It's such a cute story.

Apparently, the crew was happy to comply.

This couple is hardly the first to get married on a flight, and they won't be the last.

Honestly, airplane tickets might be expensive considering the conditions that people endure on flights, but they can't compare to the price of a more traditional wedding.

Good for these two for thinking outside of the box.

And good for the flight crew and passengers for indulging them.

Sister Wives Star Aspyn Brown and Mitch Thompson: Married!

Very early this year, we shared the happy news that Aspyn Brown is engaged!

The eldest Sister Wives daughter, whose mom is Christine, was engaged to her childhood friend, Mitch Thompson.

Well, now we have a beautiful update: Aspyn and Mitch have gotten married!

All things considered, a six-month engagement isn’t an especially lengthy one. But sometimes, you just know.

Besides — Aspyn and Mitch have known each other since childhood. 

The wedding took place on Sunday, in the mountains of Utah.

Aspyn herself was dressed in a white satin gown brought to life by some delicate beadwork.

Mitch wore a Scottish kilt, which is always a stylish but topical choice. In his case, it’s also honoring his Scottish heritage.

And then there were the guests.

Kody decided to follow Mitch’s example, wearing a kilt of his own.

Hey, they’re comfy. Say what you will about Kody Brown, but the father of the bride made a choice to dress in solidarity with his now-son-in-law.

All four of Aspyn’s moms were there, complete with fancy hats. (Who says that royal weddings don’t have an impact in America?)

Mom Christine, who gave birth to Aspyn, was absolutely stunning in emerald green.

Now, originally, Aspyn had stated that she was going to have Mykelti as her maid of honor.

After all, she had been her sister’s maid of honor in 2016 — we all remember the taco wedding, right?

But instead, Aspyn and Mitch opted to forgo the usual bridal party.

So no maid of honor. No man of honor.

But they did include the wedding’s younger guests — in the form of ten flower girls. That is so adorable.

(Quick aside — this photo was taken from the trip on which Mitch popped the question! Those are memories that they can both treasure forever)

There is another precious detail from this wedding that we would be remiss if we didn’t mention.

Mitch, as you may remember, works as a carpenter.

He built the arch under which he and Aspyn were married. That is a beautiful gesture.

(And, real talk, those of us who dread assembling premade furniture might not always appreciate how much work and love a carpenter puts into their work — we’re certain that this, at least, was a labor of love)

We hope to see more of this wedding than a single snapshot … and we probably will.

Sister Wives will return despite its ratings. Not every show has to dominate its timeslot for a network to consider it worth continuing. There are a number of factors.

So when the show does come back, we expect to see a lot of the build-up to Aspyn’s wedding.

And probably the wedding itself, since TLC’s cameras were there.

Weddings are a big deal for people and families, so they’re a huge deal for reality television.

For the record, though, though they started dating after attending a pro-polygamy rally, Aspyn and Mitch have both made it clear that they are planning on keeping their marriage monogamous.


Meghan Markle Finally Speaks on Married Life, Makes Bold Statement About Prince Harry

Meghan Markle has made multiple appearances since becoming the Duchess of Sussex.

She’s even made her debut on the balcony of Buckingham Palace and has even established herself in British society to such an extent that she’s receiving backlash for her fashion choices.

So, yes, we have seen Markle ever since her monumental wedding to Prince Harry back on May 19.

But we haven’t really heard from Markle since this she officially became part of the Royal Family.

Not until now at least.

On Thursday afternoon, Markle enjoyed a walkabout in Chester, England, joining Queen Elizabeth II for her first solo engagement with the beloved monarch.

She carried herself very well, as you might expect, even prompting a number of smiles and laughs from the typically-stoic queen.

While speaking with residents gathered along the sidewalk, Markle also addressed her life as a newlywed, specifically giving folks her take on her very famous and handsome husband.

According to press on the scene, the new Duchess of Sussex referred Prince Harry as “best husband ever,” saying simply of being his wife:

“It’s wonderful.”

It is important to remember, of course, that Markle was once married to Trevor Engelson.

She split from him in 2013, but she actually does have a husband to whom she can compare Harry, making the above remark carry more weight.

Last weekend, the married twosome re-emerged in public together for the first time in a few weeks to join the queen at the annual Trooping the Colour ceremony.

As mentioned previously, this event marked Markle’s debut on the Buckingham Palace balcony.

We’ve since learned that Markle and Harry had been away from the spotlight because they found time to jet off to Africa for their honeymoon.

An insider has confirmed to E! News that the Royal Couple traveled into East Africa, to be accurate, and also visited more than two nations, where their activities included safaris and outdoor adventures, along with much-deserved rest and relaxation in the sun.

(We’re also guessing they had a lot of sex.)

“It was the perfect break and blend of their passions,” this E! source says. “Restorative and the perfect holiday before starting a very busy second half of 2018.”

Busy because Harry and Meghan will be making many public appearances?

Yes, we’re certain this is true.

But also busy because they’ll be preparing to be parents?

Indeed, questions about just when Markle will get pregnant have already started to circulate around the Internet.

We’re not about to add any pressure to the lives of these global stars, however. They only just got married!

We’ll just wish them all the best for a happy and healthy future and ask that they alert The Hollywood Gossip to any baby news prior to any other entertainment/gossip outlet.

We’d really appreciate it.


June Shannon and Geno Doak: Are They Getting Married?!

Fans have already seen the From Not to Hot trailer. New episodes begin on Friday, June 15!

But this video offers a number of sneak peeks into upcoming footage, including a very telling scene in which June and boyfriend Geno Doak are looking at wedding dresses.

June is talking about marriage for the first time in her life, folks. Are they going to take that next step?

Geno doak and june shannon on the couch

Before the preview video that we've included gets to June trying but failing to get into a size 8 dress, she heads to the dress shop to pick up her dress.

While there, she and boyfriend Geno end up looking at dresses.

(After she explains to him that the "headband" that he points out is, in fact, a tiara)

Shannon's eyes light up when she looks at wedding dresses.

"This could be us," she says.

Geno, who likes to deflect with humor, replies:

"You better stay away from the dresses, you might be blinded by all that white."

June shannon and geno doak look at wedding dresses on from not t

No one is more surprised than June that she suddenly has her eyes on wedding dresses.

She confesses to the camera:

"Walking into the dress shop and seeing wedding dresses is like … I wanna wear one of those one day."

She did wear a camouflage dress for a commitment ceremony with Sugar Bear back before they parted ways but … clearly she has something a little more traditional in mind.

"And it's kind of crazy for me to say that, because I've never said that before."

It sounds like June is head-over-heels for Geno.

Geno, of course, made several jokes about the wedding dresses.

In front of the cameras, June turns to Geno and says:

"I know you're just teasing. You know you want to lock this body down and put a ring on it."

Geno replies with humor:

"If you're insistent on getting married, I feel we’re close enough … I could walk and give you away."

Mama June gets very frank with the camera, saying:

"I think Geno wants to get married to me, but I think he's scared because his first marriage failed."

June shannon and geno doak make out

Other parts of the video feature other teasers of what is to come.

There may be some more discussion of June Shannon's brush with blindness.

Sugar Bear and Jennifer Lamb continue their romance.

Jennifer is worried about her health and eager to lose weight, but she knows that Sugar Bear prefers larger women and so she is hesitant to tell him.

In the mean time, Pumpkin and Josh are still dealing with the fact that they are new parents with a baby.

(Fair warning, there is a diaper change, and there is some excrement footage within the trailer … ugh)

June shannon knows her worth

During all of this, Alana has been booted out of her bedroom to sleep on the couch while her room was turned into a nursery for Ella-Grace.

Which, frankly, seems extremely unfair to Alana, who is not the one who got pregnant. Surely the crib could have gone into the room with Pumpkin.

A nursery is not more important than a bedroom for an almost teenage girl. And if one of the girls is going to lose her privacy, it might as well be the one who had the baby, right?

Speaking of unfair things, Geno gets Alana a cat in an effort to cheer her up. It doesn't seem like anyone knows how to interact with a cat, or perhaps they read a list of things to not do and mistook it for a list of how to treat a cat.

(We hope that someone from the production crew gave them some advice, for that cat's sake)

So, we don't know if June and Geno are headed to the altar.

But they sure are teasing that it's a possibility.

We suppose that we'll just have to watch and see.

The introduction

June shannon and geno doak are they getting married

Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter: Married! But Certain Guests Never Showed …

More than two years ago, in 2016, Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter became engaged.

Over the weekend, these two lovebirds finally tied the knot.

But the Kardashian-Jenner clan was decidedly absent.

Congratulations are in order for Brody Jenner and for his new wife, Kaitlynn Carter!

The two tied the knot in Nihi, Sumba Island, which is a luxury island resort that’s about 250 miles east of Bali, Indonesia.

The ceremony took place on Saturday, June 2.

No one really expected the Kardashians themselves to show up.

Awkwardly, Brody’s sisters, Kylie and Kendall, weren’t there.

Most significantly, Caitlyn Jenner did not attend her own son’s wedding.

The absence of Kylie and Kendall is not really a surprise … because, as we noted last week, they didn’t even RSVP.

Brody admitted as much when speaking to People, saying: “My two little sisters, we never even heard from them.”

Of course, that might be because he’s the sort of person who doesn’t mind being frank with news outlets about family drama.

“They never even RSVP’d I don’t think.”

That’s not shocking — after all, Brody didn’t even know that Kylie was pregnant.

“We sent them an invite but we just never heard anything back.”

He sounded resigned about it.

“Well, they’ll be missed.”

But he really would have liked to see them.

“I would have loved to have had them there.”

Brody’s father, Caitlyn Jenner, was also not in attendance.

Though we discussed rumors that it was Cait’s girlfriend who kept her from the nuptials, Brody had previously said that Cait couldn’t come because of a prior “business opportunity.”

As it turns out, Cait was in Vienne, Austria on Friday night to attend the LIFE+ Solidarity Gala. And yes, gal pal Sophia Hutchins was with her.

On Saturday, the day of the wedding, Cait and Sophia were at the Life Ball, held in Vienne’s City Hall.

It was the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the annual charity event, which raises funds for HIV and AIDS projects.

You know, normally we’d take a harsh tone towards a parent missing their own child’s wedding.

After all, Caitlyn is rich and can afford to miss opportunities. And it’s not as though she disapproves of the union or of Kaitlynn.

But apparently Cait had been locked into these plans for months.

This is why you don’t schedule your wedding at the last minute.

And you know what else?

If a close member of your family is one of the most famous members of the LGBT+ community on the entire planet … maybe you shouldn’t schedule your wedding for the first weekend of Pride Month.

It’s not really a surprise that Cait had plans, now is it?

We will say that Kendall and Kylie don’t have an excuse like Cait’s.

They’re Brody’s siblings, they’re also super rich. And they didn’t even RSVP.

(Don’t say that Kylie had to be with her baby — Stormi has a father and a grandmother and a bunch of aunts and also nannies)

But, as we implied earlier, we cannot help but wonder if Brody’s penchant for speaking to the media about his family and family drama — without consulting anyone — played a role in that.

Things haven’t always been rosy for this family. Maybe Brody’s half-sisters aren’t ready to move on.


Kat Von D and Rafael Reyes: MARRIED!!!

Congratulations are in order for Kat Von D!

And her HUSBAND, Rafael Reyes!

That’s right, yesterday Kat married Rafael, also known as Leafar Seyer, his stage name with his band, Prayers.

Or, well they were technically already married — they tied the knot back in February in a quickie ceremony.

Back then, she took to Instagram to call Rafael “my soul’s mate, my mind’s twin, my best friend,” and he was pretty gushy about her too, calling her “the girl of my dreams.”

And even though it’s only been a few months since then, it looks like they’re more in love than ever, since they had their big wedding this weekend!

The whole thing really is just so sweet, and also so stylish — wait till you see Kat’s dress!

But before the actual wedding — on Friday after the rehearsal dinner — Kat took to social media once again to express her absolute happiness, along with a picture of some flowers.

Kat Von D flowers

“Such a beautifully emotional day today,” she wrote, explaining that the next day she and Rafael “will have our wedding ceremony for our close friends + family.”

“This has been the sweetest, most stress-free experience where we continuously fell in love with each other all over again with each day counting down.”

As for the flowers, she said that they are three carnations that a friend brought them, and that they “represent him, me, and our sweet baby boy we are adding to our family.”

Because in case you missed it, she’s pregnant, too!

“All I can say right now,” Kat continued, “is that I am so grateful fo my dear friends, and for my sweet husband.”

“Lastly, thank you all for the love and for understanding that starting tomorrow we will most likely be stepping away from our phones for a while to be as present as possibly on such a beautiful day.”

But thankfully, Rafael did grab his phone to give us a quick little peak at the beautiful bride!

Can you even handle this beautiful Beetlejuice realness?!

In the caption of the photo, Rafael told us that “In a couple hours I’ll be walking down the aisle with the love of my life,” and he added “EN VIDA Y EN MUERTE,” which is what they’ve both been writing in their captions about each other for a while now.

It translates to “in life and in death,” which is nice, right?

We don’t have too much more information on the wedding yet, since they do seem to be off enjoying this special time together.

But in case you wanted more info on that amazing dress, it’s by designer Adolfo Sanchez!

A friend was also kind enough to share a photo from the reception — you can get a full look at the dress, plus the kind of decorations you’d expect from a Kat Von D wedding.

The friend congratulated the couple, saying “You are both beautiful people and deserve a lifetime of happiness together. Thanks for letting me be part of your amazing wedding!”

Kat Von D ceremony

And honestly, in case you’re not getting our feelings on this, it really does look like it was an amazing wedding.

For the record, this is Kat’s second marriage — she was married to tattoo artist and Ink Master judge Oliver Peck from 2003 to 2007.

(She did have a string of bad relationships and engagements between then and now, but let’s not bring up such bad memories during such a happy time.)

This is Rafael’s first marriage, but he does have a daughter from a previous relationship.

In a few months, they’ll welcome their baby, a boy they’ve said they’ll name Leafar.

Once again, congratulations!!!

Miranda Lambert’s Married Boyfriend Files For Divorce

As you may have heard, Miranda Lambert is dating Evan Felker, and the relationship is reportedly moving along nicely – except for one tiny problem:

Evan is married.

It’s a minor detail, but one that’s caused considerable inconvenience for Miranda.

She’s been forced to deal with her ex-husband, Blake Shelton, making cryptic comments about “karma.”

She’s been called out as a homewrecker by Felker’s wife, who is understandably less than thrilled with the situation.

Needless to say, the whole thing hasn’t done any wonders for Miranda’s reputation, so it should come as no surprise that she and Evan are taking steps to make things right.

No, we don’t mean they’re breaking up – quite the opposite, in fact.

According to Us Weekly, Evan filed for divorce from his wife, Staci Felker, earlier this week.

No one is claiming that Miranda put him up to it, but … we’re guessing she didn’t exactly stand in his way, either.

Lambert is likely to face even more allegations of heartless homewrecking as a result of the filing, but those who know the Felkers best say this move has been a long time coming.

“Anyone who actually speaks to Staci knows she has wanted out of this marriage for months. Evan is the one who disappeared again and changed his phone number,” says one insider.

“They both planned to end this quietly. Staci has never wanted to go to court and Evan told Staci he did not want to either, so there is probably someone a little more powerful dictating all of this.”

But just because the Felkers marriage dissolved slowly over time, that doesn’t mean there are no hard feelings.

The same day that Evan filed for divorce, Staci posted a photo of a book with the title:


She also changed her Instagram profile pic to a photo from her wedding day.

We think it’s safe to say you won’t be seeing Staci at a Miranda Lambert concert anytime soon.

Unless, of course, she comes equipped with a whole bunch of rotten produce.
