It’s a Bravo New Year’s Eve packed with reality TV stars at “The Countess” Luann’s Palm beach wedding… except that Luann banned Bravo from filmimg!?
The Real Housewives of New York City‘s resident countess married Tom at the Brazilian Court Hotel on Saturday evening in Florida. Not only New Year’s Eve, but Saturday was also Tom’s birthday (and his first marriage). Luann shockingly banned Bravo from filming the wedding, which apparently prompted nearly all of her RHONY cast members to decline attending. Does this mean that they are only ‘TV friends’?
Dorinda Medley, the lone RHONY cast mate in attendance served as a bridesmaid to Luann, as she was responsible for matchmaking Luann and Tom last winter. Luann told the Bravo producers that she wanted her wedding to be private, and would not allowing filming at the event – but then signed a $20,000 deal with People Magazine for exclusive photos of the event. Major side-eye Luann – do you really need the dough that badly? Oh, but Luann is said to be sharing footing with Bravo from her private videographer once her contract with People has expired.
The couple wed in front of 200 guests, including Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Cynthia Bailey, and former Real Housewives Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon, and Marysol Patton.
The couple went with a tropical white theme, complete with blue uplighting that is fitting for a New Year’s Eve wedding.
Bride Luann wore a white Randi Rahm gown, and a veil for the ceremony. The couple danced to Just like Heaven, by The Cure as their first wedded dance. Another wedding treat to guests was a Marilyn Monroe lookalike that popped out of a giant cake. You can see more of that from intouchweekly.com.
