If you’ve got a secret to keep, Barry Manilow’s your man.
The Jewish crooner has reportedly married his longtime manager Gary Keif in a private ceremony. The catch? The pair managed to keep it under wraps for an entire year.
People Magazine reports that the surprise wedding was attended by “20 or 30 guests” who were originally told they were attending a “lunch.” The couple did not actually sign any paperwork, but have been wearing wedding bands to show their commitment. “They have a great relationship,” a very reliable secret source told People. “Garry has always been there for Barry.”
According to the National Enquirer, Suzanne Somers acted as best man. (Just imagine that dance party — who needs the horah when you’ve got “Copacabana”?)
News of the nuptial has come as a shock to certain fans, who were apparently unaware that their favorite singer was gay. Haterz gonna hate. Barry doesn’t care.
“He’s at a point now where he’s got his career and personal life in a great place and he really doesn’t care what people think,” the same source told People. “He’s in love and happy.”
The new ad for Dior fragrances stars our girl Natalie Portman in what is honestly the most beautiful wedding dress I have ever seen (drool). “It’s Miss, Actually,” directed by Anton Corbijn, shows Miss Dior on her wedding day. But here’s the twist: in what is every Jewish parent’s nightmare, she gets cold feet halfway down the aisle, dumps what we assume is a nice Jewish boy, and hitches a helicopter ride to Paris with her lover, all set to Janis Joplin’s “Piece of My Heart.”
Mazel tov, Cameron Diaz! At least, we think so.
The non-Jewish actress tied the knot yesterday in a Jewish ceremony with Good Charlotte’s (maybe Jewish? — status ambiguous) Benji Madden. Yes, you read that right. Two celebrities with no apparent connection to Judaism decided it would be fun to say “I do” under a chuppah (after scouring the Internet, I was unable to find any reference to Benji’s Jewish background, but hey — who knows).
Us Weekly reports that the ceremony, attended by 100 guests and planned by Yifat Oren (so THERE’S the Jewish connection) and Stefanie Cove, was held on a stage in Diaz’s home.
The traditional seven blessings were recited, and yes, Benji crushed the glass as twin Joel Madden and his wife Nicole Ritchie looked on.
But wait, it gets weirder. Per Us Weekly:
After the vows, Madden requested personal time with Diaz, during which they entered a private room for about 30 minutes, asking not to be disturbed — a Jewish wedding ritual known as Yichud.
I’m not really sure how to feel about this. Is Good Charlotte a good Jewish band? Or Is Judaism just the new kale?
The best British Jewish comedian you’ve only kind of heard of, Stephen Fry, is tying the knot with 27-year-old partner Elliott Spencer. Fry took to to Twitter to confirm the news, though a date has not yet been set.
Oh. It looks as though a certain cat is out of a certain bag. I’m very very happy of course but had hoped for a private wedding. Fat chance! — Stephen Fry (@stephenfry) January 6, 2015
Thank you all SO much for your kind congratulations. Deeply touched xxx — Stephen Fry (@stephenfry) January 6, 2015
First Ivanka, now Eric. The MOT-Trump circle has just gained another member.
The Donald’s 30-year-old son married Jewish TV producer Lara Yunaska on Saturday in front of 450 people. The ceremony, held at Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, also featured a “crystal-embellished” chuppah. Because, you know, Trump.
The bride, who reportedly broke both her wrists horseback riding two weeks before the wedding (ouch!), wore Vera Wang.
Kushner, who officiated the ceremony, reportedly told Yunaska: “You are not just gaining a family you are getting 6 million Twitter followers.”
