    This is the week that began when we lost an hour as we sprang forward to save daylight and continued with a full spring moon, so close and large, enough to give many of us something to admire ... while in self-isolation from coronavirus.  Sigh. And so, in that spirit, Representative Ilhan Omar (D-Somalia in Minnesota) temporarily suspended her professional hate of America to announce, via Instagram:  No, this lucky third husband isn't her brother as was husband #2 -- or was he #1?  He is her married-to-someone else campaign aide and fundraiser who conveniently "earned" several hundred thousand dollars from her campaign when...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) announced on Instagram Wednesday night that she has remarried, posting a picture flashing rings with her political strategist, Tim Mynett, with whom she previously denied having an affair. What are the details? "Got married! From partners in politics to life partners, so blessed," Omar wrote along with the picture on Instagram, adding, "Alhamdulillah." Omar's friend Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) reacted by writing, "Alf Mabrook sis. So happy for you." The apparent nuptials happened last week, according to the Daily Mail, which has covered Omar's relationship history closely. The outlet reported last month that Omar and Mynett...

    A Mississippi wedding venue apologized after one of their employees denied an interracial couple's request to use the hall for their wedding, citing her "Christian beliefs." An interracial Mississippi couple was turned away from a wedding venue with the owner citing her refusal based on her "Christian beliefs." The owner of the venue has since apologized, saying she was raised to believe interracial marriage was an "understood subject." In a Facebook video posted by LaKambria Welch, an unidentified woman working at Boone's Camp Event Hall can be heard saying, "we don't do gay weddings or mixed-raced [weddings] because of our...

    President Trump made a surprise appearance at a wedding reception Saturday night that took place at his New Jersey golf club, prompting the bride, groom and attendees to break into chants of “USA! USA!” Video circulating on social media Sunday showed Trump walk out to the reception and the bride and groom rush over to join him. The crowd then erupted in the patriotic chant. Groom P.J. Mongelli later told CNN that Trump showing up at the wedding “was a complete and utter surprise.” He said that he and his then-fiancée Nicole Marie Mongelli sent Trump multiple invitations to...

    President Trump revealed Saturday that he had asked Montana Sen. Steve Daines (R) to take time off to attend his daughter's wedding over the weekend, causing him to miss a confirmation vote for Brett Kavanaugh, Trump's Supreme Court nominee. The president tweeted Saturday afternoon following Kavanaugh's successful confirmation in the Senate that he advised Daines to skip the vote once Republicans learned that they had the necessary number of votes to prevail. "I have asked Steve Daines, our great Republican Senator from Montana, to attend his daughter Annie’s wedding rather than coming to today’s vote," Trump wrote on Twitter shortly...

    Okay everyone, buckle up, because this might be the most insane wedding story you'll hear this year. On Saturday, one Twitter user, @0lspicykeychain, tweeted screenshots of a status she saw shared in a wedding shaming group on Facebook. (To clarify, a wedding shaming Facebook group is exactly what it sounds like—a place on the internet where people go to shame weddings.) What follows is a truly incredible tale filled with broken promises, outrageous expectations, and a bride who thought asking each of her guests to contribute $1,500 to her wedding was a reasonable request: ... In the status, the anonymous...

    I got married last week. Hence my absence from this space for the first time in seven years. It was a beautiful wedding in Acre, Israel, overlooking the ocean at sunset. My father wrote the music for the processional, which brought everyone to tears. My bride looked stunning, of course. We broke the glass, we danced, we ate and we celebrated until deep into the night. Outside the wedding hall stood a guard. Every wedding in Israel requires an armed guard to prevent terrorist attacks. Only the armed guards prevent the infliction of mass casualties at joyous events; only the...

    Ed Sheeran has been wearing a ring on THAT finger, but it’s not what you think it is. It’s simply a “man-gagement” ring. People noticed the wedding band-style accessory about two weeks ago, and he has since addressed it. “I never saw why men didn’t wear engagement rings,” Sheeran, 27, told British talk show Lorraine. “Cherry made it for me herself out of silver clay,” he said of his new ring, which was handcrafted by his fiancée, Cherry Seaborn. “I really like it.” Nothing’s changed since he proposed: “We didn’t get secretly married, no,” he clarified on Australia’s The Kyle...

And now I read that she and Harry really like the Obamas and want them at their wedding. I think it is tacky and it is certainly not gracious or polite. I bet she has a pussy hat.

    Meghan McCain didn’t have second thoughts about wearing her dream Marchesa wedding dress during her November nuptials to conservative writer Ben Domenech. High-end fashion brand Marchesa is run by Georgina Chapman, the estranged wife of disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein, as well as Keren Craig. “The scandal erupted and everybody was like, ‘Are you going to keep the dress?’ And I was like, ‘Why should the two women designers be punished for a man’s disgusting behavior?” McCain, 33, told People. “I just didn’t wanna feel like the people who had worked there and make their livelihood should be punished as...

    TOKYO — Japanese Emperor Akihito's oldest grandchild, Princess Mako, says she is getting married to her university classmate who won her heart with bright smiles and sincerity. Mako and her fiancé Kei Komuro told a joint news conference Sunday their relationship started when Mako sat behind him at a campus meeting five years ago at Tokyo's International Christian University, where they graduated from. Palace officials say their wedding is expected next year. Mako says she fell in love with his "smiles like the sun," sincerity and a big heart. Mako's 83-year-old grandfather, Emperor Akihito, is expected to abdicate in late...
