Wedding bells rang last Saturday for Ashlee Simpson and the trapped-for-now Pete Wentz. The couple tied the knot in a private wedding ceremony at Joe and Tina Simpson’s LA home. The wedding was truly a family affair with dad, Joe Simpson performing the ceremony, sister, Jessica Simpson serving as maid of honor and Pete Wentz’s pet dog, Hemingway, as ring-bearer. Then, of course, there’s the rumored bun in the oven that may or may not have also been in attendance.
The Simpson-Wentz wedding reception had an Alice in Wonderland theme, which seemed to suit the style of taste of both the bride and groom. Thankfully, there were no drunken outbursts by Jessica Simpson or lip-syncing incidents by the bride. Although, there were reports that the older Simpson sister did engage in some hot & heavy PDA with on-again/off-again boyfriend, Tony Romo.
Elsewhere in the world of celebrity love…...Troubled rocker, Amy Winehouse, and her husband, *Blake Fielder-Civi*l, celebrated their 1st wedding anniversary this past weekend in true rock & roll fashion – alone. The couple was unable to be together on their anniversary due to the fact that Blake Fielder-Civil is currently in jail and is not allowed to have visitors on Sundays. Amy Winehouse did manage to pop in for a belated wedding anniversary visit on Monday. Afterwards, she treated herself to a celebratory anniversary lunch of takeout for one.
Another couple that wasn’t celebrating this past weekend was Shania Twain and her producer/husband, Mutt Lange. How shocking was it to hear that Shania had split from her husband of 14 years, Mutt Lange? It’s easy to forget about Shania Twain since she lives in Switzerland most of the time, but this news is huge!
The ironic thing about this split is that the couple originally moved to Switzerland because of rumors that their marriage was in trouble. And now it seems that the split was actually caused by an affair that Mutt Lange was having with the secretary and manager of the Switzerland chateau where the couple resided. In fact, some say that the secretary has left her husband as well and that she and Mutt Lange are currently together. Sounds like a bad Lifetime movie, doesn’t it?
What makes this news even harder to take is that Mutt Lange has been so instrumental in Shania Twain’s success. He’s co-written and produced practically every country-pop hit that Shania has ever had. Who knows what this split will mean for Shania’s future career.
And finally, one country star who learned some important life lessons from his very own public split is Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of the Year, Kenny Chesney. You might remember Kenny Chesney’s short-lived marriage to Renee Zellwegger back in 2005. Neither Kenny or Renee have remarried since their breakup, but both reportedly remain close friends. In a recent interview, Kenny revealed that when he is ready to marry again he’ll be sure to give the marriage 150% and not go into it as unprepared as he did the first time around.
